As a christian, we have been given power and authority – so therefore we are in fact, more than conquerors in Christ Jesus.
The number of occurrences of the verb “to conquer” illustrates this (it appears 17 times). John describes amazing promises in Revelation, addressing them specifically to those who “conquer”:
- “To the one who conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God” (2:7)
- “The one who conquers will not be hurt by the second death” (2:11)
- “To the one who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it” (2:17)
- “The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations” (2:26)
- “The one who conquers will be clothed thus in white garments, and I will never blot his name out of the book of life. I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels” (3:5)
- “The one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name” (3:12)
- “The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne” (3:21)
You weren’t just made to overcome life’s problems. You were made to be more than a conqueror.
