VICTORY BELONGS TO JESUS

Who can stand against the Lord.

No one can, No one will.

 

Who will stand against the King.

No one can, No one will.

 

Victory Belongs To Jesus

Victory belongs to Him.

 

Who can stand against the Lord.

No one can, No one will.

 

Who can stand against the King.

No one can, No one will.

 

Victory Belongs To Jesus

Victory belongs to Him.

 

 

We turn our trust in you.

We turn our hope in you.

 

You will deliver, you’re a provider

I find my victory in you.

Forever victorious, forever we win.

I find my victory in you.

 

Victory Belongs To Jesus

Victory belongs to Him.

 

Victory Belongs To Jesus

Victory belongs to Him.

 

Victory Belongs to Jesus – Todd Dulaney

This song gets to me anytime I listen to it. It is the song of a worshipper’s heart. What is worship then? It is dedication of our selfless hearts to God by renouncing our sins altogether. To begin by making ourselves a new heart possibly with a new conducting system intricately connected to Him, that He can unleash his spiritual gifts on us at any given time.

God reigns over the nations; and is seated on his holy throne.  Worship empowers the heavenly King seated on his throne to rise up to our aid anytime we face engulfing challenges.

Worship is not the slow song that the choir sings. Worship is not the amount you place in the offering basket. Worship is not volunteering in children’s church. Yes, these may be acts or expressions of worship, but they do not define what true worship really is.

True worship is to honor God with extravagant love and extreme submission, to present our bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God

The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 10:13 that No temptation [regardless of its source] has overtaken or enticed you that is not common to human experience [nor is any temptation unusual or beyond human resistance]; but God is always faithful [to His word which states that He is compassionate and trustworthy], and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability [to resist], but along with the temptation He [has in the past and is now and] will [always] provide the way out as well, so that you will be able to endure it [without yielding, and will overcome temptation with joy].

The nature of the worship God demands is the prostration of our souls before Him in humble and contrite submission. Contrite according to the Merriam Webster is the feeling or showing sorrow and remorse for a sin or shortcoming. “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Before you can worship, it involves the realization that we, fallible humans need a infallible God. The high and exalted One who lives forever and whose name is holy who dwells in a high and holy place, also lives with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.

The doctors might have diagnosed you of that incurable malignancy but Victory belongs to Jesus.

You might be feeling so negative after a working diagnosis of Paranoid Schizophrenia that gets you high and low that you need shots of Haloperidol just to control your symptoms but then remember that Victory belongs to Jesus.

The only car that gets you places gets caught in that fatal car wreck and you are rushed in with a subarachnoid hemorrhage which is a rare life threatening condition that could claim your life but then Victory belongs to Jesus.

There is, however, equally great incentive to worship and love God in the thought that, for some unfathomable reason, He wants me as His friend, and desires to be my friend, and has given His Son to die for me in order to realize this purpose. not merely that we know God, but that He knows us. –  J. I. Packer.

  1. Amen! When we praise God with all of our life, we will see God gain the victory in our lives. The real praise is found in releasing our own will to submit to His. It is allowing God to be in control, in order to bring about the best in our lives. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Victory belongs to our Lord God Jesus the Christ – so what is most important to HIM should be most important to us also.
    No, it’s not “Love” without God – that was the Beatles, and Paul…..

    Poem – What is love?

    Two men came to Jesus
    With different motivations.
    They asked Him the same question
    Relevant to all the nations:

    Which is the Most Important?
    The answer was the same.
    Jesus did not manipulate
    He was not there to play a game.

    “Love the Lord your God” said Jesus
    as He quoted from The Law –
    to fulfill and not abolish
    was His purpose, full of awe.

    Jesus did not make all Scripture
    Into one new great commandment.
    He summarized The Law and Prophets
    “First and Greatest” and “The Second.”

    The Love of God is higher
    Than the love of any man.
    Receive from God, give back to God-
    Then to others, that’s His plan.

    The Love of God involves much more
    Than simply “love your fellow man.”
    Worship, trust, and pray to God,
    and obey Him – that’s His plan

    To worship and pray to neighbors,
    Whoever they may be,
    Or trust and obey our enemies
    Would be idolatry.

    The love of God is first and greatest,
    And the love of man is second.
    “All we need is love” are words
    of dead Beetles on the pavement.

    “The entire law is summed up in a single command”
    are not the words of Jesus our Salvation.
    It’s false teaching of Paul the Pharisee
    an “accuser of our brethren.”

    “Love” without God is Satan’s word through Paul
    in his chapter to the Corinthians.
    “I will show you the most excellent way”
    is the road to eternal perdition.

    Where is God in Paul’s chapter on love?
    Nowhere in view of the eye.
    Paul sings about himself like a Mexican Mariachi
    “I, I, I, I.”

    Jesus is The Most Excellent Way
    Not the words of a Pharisee.
    The words of Jesus are very clear.
    Jesus said, “You must follow ME.”

      1. Thank you – here is another one I wrote today.,,,

        Poem – Looking forward (Rocky)

        Jesus never calls us out
        For what we used to be.
        His voice is so much greater
        Than paul the Pharisee.

        “You are Simon son of John”
        said Jesus, without elaboration.
        No mention of a cloudy past
        No hint of condemnation.

        No accusation against the brothers
        No comments dark and obscure,
        Writing to the Church in Corinth
        “that is what some of you were.”

        Not the voice of the accuser,
        Boss Paul the Pharisee,
        Telling the redeemed people of God
        About what they used to be.

        Jesus never said right is wrong,
        He never said wrong is right.
        He came so we can turn from darkness
        And into His glorious light.

        “Neither do I condemn you” said Jesus,
        to a woman entrapped by dogs.
        The game the dogs play is the same today,
        Except now they do it on blogs.

        “Go, and sin no more” said Jesus,
        Don’t relive that history.
        Look forward, not back, don’t dwell on your past.
        “You will be called” Rocky.

    1. Beloved Sister Priscilla,
      All glory be to God – in the name of His Son, the Lord God Jesus!
      Here’s part two….

      Looking forward – Chapter 2

      “I am he who searches hearts and minds”
      says the Risen Jesus Christ
      “Repent and do what you did at first”
      Don’t be lazy since He paid the price

      Yes, Jesus sees our sins today
      Don’t think that He is blind
      But the words of paul the Pharisee
      Will put you in a bind

      Jesus washed away your sins
      Don’t listen to paul the accuser
      paul abandoned the Church in Corinth
      And then paul became an abuser

      When you put your trust in Jesus
      Yes, your stains were white as snow
      You didn’t need to wear a Scarlet Letter
      Everywhere you go

      “I will repay each of you
      According to your deeds”
      This is Jesus speaking to The Church
      Not a business selling felt needs

      For “those who claim to be apostles”
      Jesus said they must be “tested”
      Priscilla, Aquila, and Apollos
      Persevered and were not bested

      They exposed the false teachings
      Of paul the Pharisee
      So the Church in Ephesus rejected paul
      And had a chance to be free

      Bibliography for Chapter 2
      All quotes are the words of Jesus, in Revelation Chapter 2

  3. Dear Priscilla (and “Growing Black Man”)
    Yes, if we are really born again and following Jesus, we are ALL beloved brothers and sisters, and chosen instruments of God – chosen for different purposes. These are not special titles.

    We are part of the BRIDE of Christ – this is according to Isaiah, Jeremiah, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John & in Revelation . (We are not “his body” – that was just Paul’s idea…..)

    The problem is, for most self-described “Bible-believing Evangelicals”, the voice (and example) of Paul is the “main thing”, and it has almost completely replaced the voice and example of Jesus.

    Instead of following Jesus, people are following….
    BOSS PAUL THE PHARISEE
    [sing it to the tune of “Rapture” by Blondie]

    I’m Boss Paul, the Pharisee
    My hypocrisy’s plain for the world to see
    I travel the land and travel the sea
    to make a convert who is just like ME

    “All have sinned” – we know that’s true
    but it never means ME – it only means YOU
    My sins are all theoretical
    “I’m the worst of sinners”- but don’t ask where

    To be more like Jesus is what some strive
    except for me – I’ve already arrived
    I’m the perfect model since the road to Damascus
    What were Paul’s sins? Don’t ask us!

    I justify everything I do
    If I testify about myself it MUST be true
    I’m the only man in all history
    whose testimony doesn’t need two or three

    If I did something it MUST be right
    Don’t use the Scripture to shed any light
    Don’t do as I say, do as I do
    and then you can be a Pharisee too.
