Welcome to Live In Victory website.
It will be a privilege to change or enrich the spiritual life of anyone who reads articles that I have written in this space. The content is compiled from vivid reflections of life experiences as I battled my way to spiritual freedom. I freely received, so I will freely give. (Mathew 10:8)
I don’t wish to appear like I have answers to the ways of righteousness nor do I intend to use this site to build a tall tower, make a name for myself and wow other humans! I also doubt that I will intentionally bore you to death by my stories!
Ever since I got an experience with God, I got a dose of his power in my spirit that helps me overcome evil. This was a wonderful experience for I was before, a victim of evil. Evil made me lead a life of fear. Fear made me a doormat to agents of evil! .
Evil is spiritual and like many people going about their business everyday, I didn’t acknowledge this fact. This mindset made me a sitting duck, powerless and utterly useless against all evil schemes targeted at me. Then from many hurts, fear grew around my soul and everything that should have been a blessing turned into springs of sorrow.
Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the LORD makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.
Since the day I had this spiritual experience, everything that could have been a source of sorrow has gradually turned into a blessing. It became clear that God’s blessing came without sorrow.
I don’t have to drum up the facts that I am a spiritual being in a body having a spiritual journey here on earth and that as a human, I am the most precious creation in the universe. My earthly spacesuit (body) is equipped with the most intelligent brain to be creative and navigate through my physical world.
I now know that, however high my IQ is, its insufficient and is not even close to the spiritual intelligence that is needed to outwit evil. This superior intelligence that can fight evil comes only through the Holy Spirit. You can’t fight devil’s trickery with your human brain! If you think that you can, then you are living in deception.
I have witnessed dark spiritual forces in action through people masquerading as spiritual problem-solvers! I am not fooled by such!
The Holy Spirit gives me clarity and above all, love. This love from the Creator brings me peace, assurance and ignites a steady glow of inner joy. This joy is my driving force as I sojourn in this world. I can now easily figure out how and why the bible was definitely written by persons inspired by the Holy Spirit. It’s therefore to me a trustworthy source of divine words and has no error.
However, the translators of the scriptures were not necessarily led by the Holy Spirit .
When translating the scriptures to modern languages, bible scholars made many mistakes and it’s wise to read scriptures from more than one translation. I find biblehub good in comparing scriptures from different translations. When in doubt, you can always discuss it with native speakers of the languages used in the original manuscripts. These languages were Hebrew, Latin, Greek, Arabic and Aramaic. Just like the English language is to the international community today, the Aramaic language was the lingua franca of the region when Jesus walked on earth as a human.
I hope this excerpt from my long testimony helps you find and live a better life. A life that will make you escape eternal damnation which is the second death.
I claim the following promise over my life and on the lives of my family.
Isaiah 54:17 (NIV) no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD.
