YOU HAVE NOT achieved victory because you have not yet died. Victory only comes through death. Smith Wigglesworth said, “If there’s anything in you that likes to be seen or heard, it has to die; for Jesus must must get all the glory in a person”. When will you come to the realization that this walk is not about you? Swallow your pride. Bow down in humility. Turn the other cheek.
If someone spits on you, let them. If they talk about about you, bless them. If someone steals your shirt, give them your coat as well. If you’re easily offended, you have pride. If you always have to be right, you are arrogant. If you desire the best seat and the center of attention, you’re boastful. If it’s your way or the highway, your end is destruction.
Why will you not listen to your teachers? Why does sound doctrine offend you? WHEN will you finally bury that rotting corpse? Your grave clothes stink. Just be buried already and RISE UP the new man in Christ. “But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.”
Ephesians 4:20-24 YOUR VICTORY is waiting for you to ARISE out of your grave! Rise up and take hold of eternal life! Rise up and put on the garment of praise! Exchange your ashes for His beauty. Victory over the your enemy and the flesh is within your grasp! Rise up the new man!
