Prepare and Wait in Expectation for Absolute Victory
Apostle Dr. James Brewton
Our Holy Father, before the foundation of the world, planned for His children [those who would be heirs of salvation] to live in absolute victory!
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:57)
Just thinking: What would our world look like if people would prepare spiritually like they are preparing physically during the covid-19 pandemic and specifically, in the United States for the aftermath of the 2020 Presidential Election? Hmmmn!
Regardless of who wins our Presidential election, I decree that you will stand firm in the victory that is already assigned to you as a saint – one that is His! It is okay to prepare in the natural; but as believers, our natural preparation should never supersede or prioritize our dependence upon El Shaddai – Almighty God – The God of all sufficiency, The God of more than enough, The God of all Abundance. Therefore I decree and declare, in the name of Jesus, that the Lord will guide you in any last-minute preparations that He would want you to make prior to the election; yet you know that you draw all your supply from The Source… “But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in Christ Jesus.”
For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.” (Psalm 84:11)
As the righteousness of God, we walk uprightly. When saints totally depend on Jesus – complete, absolute, uncompromised trust in God - there should never be a “Plan B,” an alternate plan. If I, as a prophetic voice of the Lord Jesus, tell others that I heard God say or reveal something to me that is in alignment with His Word, and I know without a doubt that “God said” it, then whatever He said I believe and receive; and I LET the BLESSING work!
However, if I adopt an alternate plan(s), I truly am not operating in faith, but doubt. In other words, “I better have another plan just in case God doesn’t come through.” I question the motive and character of a “prophet of God” who says, “God said…” then does other things to “help God” or to ensure that the word he or she spoke saying, “God said” comes to pass.
This level of thought has captured many believers as we’ve lived through this year of covid-19 pandemic and the presidential election. It is a lying spirit that actual has many believers convinced that God might not do what He said. What a sad state! L Our relationship with God through intimacy is to know that God cannot lie. As the Creator of Heaven and earth and all therein is, He doesn’t have to nor does He need to. Men lie, because they love the praise of men more than the praise of God; which means they don’t trust Him!
God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? (Numbers 23:19)
But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.” (Acts 5:29)
But although He had done so many signs before them, they did not believe in Him, that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke: “Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah said again: “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, lest they should see with their eyes, lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, so that I should heal them.” These things Isaiah said when he saw His glory and spoke of Him. Nevertheless even among the rulers many believed in Him, but because of the Pharisee they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God. (John 12:37-43)
I believe that there is a remnant body of believers, globally, totally committed to Jesus – sold out to Jesus. As such, Father has promised to withhold no good thing from you. Because of His great, unconditional love for you, He has given you everything that pertains to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:3).
He has given you abundant life. Abundance means more than adequate; He is the Good Shepherd that leads you into green pastures. Your cup runs over – you have more than enough of everything you need.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (James 1:17)
You are blessed with every spiritual blessing (Ephesians 1:3); God supplies all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19); You are free to be a blessing to others. Seek first The Kingdom of God, and “all these things shall be added [given] to you” (Matthew 6:33).
I decree and declare, in the name of Jesus, that there is no pressure or worry concerning whether or not this or that will come or happen because you already have all you need along with security and protection in Jesus. And so your life is now devoted to others – giving and sharing the blessings of God with them. I further decree that the Lord is your Shepherd, you shall not lack. No good thing is withheld from you because you walk uprightly. The truth has set you free. You want for nothing. You have everything in Christ Jesus. The blessings of God have overtaken you. And your cup runs over. All of your needs are supplied. You have God’s life filling your life. It is His love that passes knowledge. He satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagles!
Wait with Expectation
I decree and declare THE BLESSING of the Lord rests upon you! I sense Holy Spirit saying to you, “Wait for your expectations.” The Hebrew word for wait is qawah, which means to be intertwined with, connected to, and bound together. “Wait” is closely related to “expectation.” The Hebrew word for expectation is tikvah, which means an attachment to the thing longed for.
Father loves to give His children of faith what they expect, especially since He knows their thoughts.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope [an expected end, KJV]. (Jeremiah 29:11)
For as he thinks in his heart, so is he! (Proverbs 23:7)
Expectation is founded on some reasons which render the event probable. In your case, The Word of God – The Promises of God! Get your expectation up! Expect countless expressions of the Lord’s BLESSINGS far exceeding your expectations.
“According to your faith, be it unto you.” (Matthew 9:29b)
Don’t ever worry about anything like how long this is taking, or is it working. Faith rests! It doesn’t struggle to produce results by works. Stand firm in your faith and declare God’s Word and His Promises. “Facts don’t change the Word of God; the Word of God changes the facts.” Expectation equals results.
Father has already set the appointed time – the fixed time and due season for the manifestation of your expectations. And as an apostle of Jesus Christ, I call your expectations to you HERE AND NOW! Wait patiently for your expectations, for the Lord will wait for the exact time for their manifestation. Like King David, wait patiently on the Lord as He waits for the timing of His glory to manifest in your life.
My soul, wait silently [in total trust] for God alone, For my expectation is from Him. (Psalm 62:5)
I waited patiently for the LORD; and He inclined to me, and heard my cry…Blessed is that man who makes the LORD his trust, and does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. (Psalm 40:1, 4)
Therefore the LORD will wait, that He may be gracious to you; and therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; Blessed are all those who wait for Him. (Isaiah 30:18)
The definition of victory, according to the Law of first mention in the Bible [2 Samuel 19:2], is rescue: - deliverance, help, safety, salvation, victory – freedom. “So the victory that day was turned into mourning for all the people. For the people heard it said that day, ‘The king is grieved for his son.”
In the context of 1 Chronicles 29:11, victory means splendor, truthfulness, confidence, continually, constantly, perpetual, strength; to be eminent, to be permanent.
Therefore, David blessed the Lord before all the assembly; and David said: “Blessed are You, Lord God of Israel, our Father, forever and ever. Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, the power and the glory, the victory and the majesty; for all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and You are exalted as head over all. Both riches and honor come from You, and You reign over all. In Your hand is power and might; in Your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. “Now therefore, our God, we thank You and praise Your glorious name. (1 Chronicles 29:10-13)
Then in Psalm 98:1, victory means to be open, wide or free, i.e. to be safe; to free or succor: avenging, defend, deliver, help preserve, rescue, be safe, bring (having) salvation, save, get victory; liberty, deliverance, prosperity: - safety, salvation, saving.
Oh, sing to the LORD a new song! For He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory. The LORD has made known His salvation; His righteousness He has revealed in the sight of the nations. He has remembered His mercy and His faithfulness to the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. (Psalm 98:1-3)
As the chosen of the Lord, “And if you belong to Christ, then are you Abraham’s seed and heirs of the promise” (Galatians 3:29), this passage in Isaiah 25 is the promise of victory over death and teaches us how we should express praise for our victorious Kingdom Blessings.
And in this mountain the LORD of hosts will make for all people a feast of choice pieces [fat things], a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of well-refined wines on the lees. And He will destroy on this mountain the surface of the covering cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death forever, and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces; the rebuke of His people He will take away from all the earth; for the LORD has spoken. And it will be said in that day: “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is the LORD; we have waited for Him; we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation. (Isaiah 25:6-9)
In the New Testament, the Greek word for victory is used to express the means of success or conquest. That is why one of the foremost promoters of sports named its company Nike ®. The Greek word nike, nee-kay means conquest, i.e. the means of success:-victory, triumph, overcome, prevail, get the victory.
So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?” The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 15:54-57)
As sons and daughters of the Most High, we have victory over the world! “For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith.” (1 John 5:4) So it really boils down to our faith in Jesus as the Premier Over-comer of the world… “Because as He is, so are we in this world.” (1 John 4:17b)
Absolute victory is Father GOD’s plan for “those that are His.” As such, you were created to have dominion on the earth. Through your faith in Jesus, you have been given grace and righteousness in order that you might reign on the earth. You were “born again” a winner, a triumphant one.
Your life has changed progressively because you know who you are in Jesus and who He is in you; you know what He has done for you and in you. Just as a reminder: He destroyed the power of the devil (1 John 3:8); He disarmed the wicked demon spirits (Colossians 2:15); His resurrection has made possible a resurrection in you, and you have been raised from death to life – from defeat to victory.
So I agree with you as you agree with God. What He says, you say. And I decree and declare, in the name of Jesus, that you will rise up to live on the level of your confession, for God has plans for you that are beyond your wildest dreams, to be lived out in absolute victory!
