Glory be You on high. Thank God for the privilege to enter into Your presence and worship thee, thank You Father for answers to prayers, we bless Your Holy Name and we adore thee from on high. There is none like thee, no one can love us as do, I been to all eternity O God and I say there is none like thee. Receive all Praise honour adorations in Jesus Name.

Beloved, we are serving a living God and great are His mighty works and He is greatly to be Praise. Are you seeing everything turning around? I can see everything turning around, everything turning everything turning round for my good. What about you? Yes our God s good, all the time, great are His works. He answers to our prayers and wrought deliverance to us His children, glory be to Him on high.

Beloved, being justify by faith we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. Romans 5:1-5 (KJV)

It is through Jesus that we enter into the redemption plan of God. That is why you must be “born again” to have access to the good plans our God have for us. According to the bible verse above we will be struggling in vain to please God outside Jesus therefore we must accept the salvation wrought for us through Calvary.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. 3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. Heb 11:2-3 (KJV).

With God rest the creative power and thus He does according to your faith. Beloved, what are those things you believing God to do for you, our God able to do it. Praise the Lord. Do still remember the teaching on “I AM”? He is to you everything you want Him to be for you.

But without faith it is impossible to please God But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him Heb 11:6 (KJV).

It is by faith all saints walked with God. They all die in the faith, some not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth Heb 11:13 (KJV)

So for you walk with God you must be prepared to see what He is doing even when is far off then confess it and embrace it. It is then left for Him to bring it past at your time or when you are gone depending on what you are praying for.

By faith Abraham blessed Isaac, through faith Isaac dwelt in the land at the period of famine. Beloved by faith Jacob prayed and trusted God that He will bring to past His promises to his fathers to past.

It was by faith that Jacob blessed all his children and for everything he pronounced into life the Lord brought them to past. Consider the text before us, and someone is receiving that same blessing as you read. Though you have been overcome before now, though you have been oppressed before now God is saying to you “but you shall over at the last” if you are the one then let’s get down to business. Let’s discover more:

“Gad, a troop shall overcome him: but he shall overcome at the last.” Gen. 49:19

 

Some of us have been like the tribe of Gad. Our adversaries for a while were too many for us, they came upon us like a troop. Yes, and for the moment they overcame us; and they exulted greatly because of their temporary victory. Thus they only proved the first part of the family heritage to be really ours, for Christ’s people, like Dan, shall have a troop overcoming them.

This being overcome is very painful, and we should have despaired if we had not by faith believed the second line of our father’s benediction, “He shall overcome at the last.” “All’s well that ends well,” said the world’s poet; and he spoke the truth. A war is to be judged, not by first successes or defeats, but by that which happens “at the last.”

The Lord will give to truth and righteousness victory “at the last”; and, as Mr. Bunyan says, that means for ever, for nothing can come after the last.

What we need is patient perseverance in well-doing, calm confidence in our glorious Captain. Christ, our Lord Jesus, would teach us His holy art of setting the face like a flint to go through with work or suffering till we can say, “It is finished.” Hallelujah. Victory! Victory!

We believe the promise. “He shall overcome at the last.”

 Like the saints of old we believed the promise as they did and the Lord will help us to shout victory at last. Praise the Lord! Let’s keep going:

“These all died in faith.” Hebrews 11:13

Behold the epitaph of all those blessed saints who fell asleep before the coming of our Lord! It matters nothing how else they died, whether of old age, or by violent means; this one point, in which they all agree, is the most worthy of record, “they all died in faith.” In faith they lived–it was their comfort, their guide, their motive and their support; and in the same spiritual grace they died, ending their life-song in the sweet strain in which they had so long continued. They did not die resting in the flesh or upon their own attainments; they made no advance from their first way of acceptance with God, but held to the way of faith to the end. Faith is as precious to die by as to live by.

Dying in faith has distinct reference to the past. They believed the promises which had gone before, and were assured that their sins were blotted out through the mercy of God. Dying in faith has to do with the present. These saints were confident of their acceptance with God, they enjoyed the beams of His love, and rested in His faithfulness. Dying in faith looks into the future. They fell asleep, affirming that the Messiah would surely come, and that when He would in the last days appear upon the earth, they would rise from their graves to behold Him. To them the pains of death were but the birth-pangs of a better state (Isa 53:1-12).

Take courage, my soul, as thou readest this epitaph. Thy course, through grace, is one of faith, and sight seldom cheers thee; this has also been the pathway of the brightest and the best. Faith was the orbit in which these stars of the first magnitude moved all the time of their shining here; and happy art thou that it is thine.

Look anew today  to Jesus, the author and finisher of thy faith, and thank Him for giving thee like precious faith with souls now in glory.

Is some doing that already? Jesus said look upon me, the author and finisher of your faith. Praise the Lord. We will overcome at last and nothing comes after the last. Let someone shout a resounding “Alleluia” Praise the Lord!!!!!

Remain ever blessed in the Lord.
