Revelation 12:11 – And they overcame by the word their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto death.
Vs (8-11) Michael the angels war in the heavens against the full stature of Lucifer.
Deceiveth the whole world
Was cast out into the earth with his angels
The accuser of our brethren is cast down
He accuse the the brethren both day and night!
An angel proclaims in the heavens:
- The Kingdom of God
- The Power of His CHRIST
- For the deceiver of the brethren is cast down, which accuse them day and night.
Subject note – Romans 1:16
” For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believe that, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
* Strength – the power
* Kingdom of our God – 1000 yr reign
* Power – authority
“1. The Hebrew and Greek words for salvation imply the ideas of deliverance, safety, preservation, healing, and soundness. Salvation is the great inclusive word of the Gospel, gathering into itself al the redemptive acts and processes: as justication, redemption, grace, propitiation, imputation, forgiveness, sanctification, and glorification. salvation is in 3 tenses: (The believer has been saved from the guilt and penalty of sin (Luke 7:50;I Cor.1:18;2 Cor.2:15;Eph.2:5,8;2 Tim.1:9) and is safe.(2) The believer is being saved from the habit and dominion of sin (Rom.6:14;Phil.1:19;2.12,13; 2Thes.2:13;Rom.8:2; Gal.2:19, 20; 2Cor.3:18) (3) The believer is to be saved in the sense of entire conformity to Christ (Rom.3:11; Heb.10:36;1 Peter 1:5;1 John 3:2). Salvation is by grace through faith, is a free gift, and wholly without works(Romans 3:27,28;4:1-8;6:23;Ephesians 2:8). The divine order is: first salvation, then works (Ephesians 2:9,10;Titus 3:5-8).”

Our spiritual children become disciples and bear same fruit that we possess!
We can choose to be a Victim/Survivor but what ever we choose as parents may shape our children or disciples.
A person does become a FAILURE until they start blaming someone else.Even if they fall many times, if they keep getting up and trying there is HOPE! It’s like a baby learning to walk!
