WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE AN OVERCOMER 1-13-19 VIDEO
Who is an overcomer? An overcomer is not someone who works and tries harder to be healed or delivered or set free. Its the one who follows Jesus. And just as He overcame all these things: sin, sickness, and death. We overcome by believing and trusting in Him. An overcomer is a believer. Overcomers are those who no matter what circumstances come their way they are identified with Christ. They have a real relationship with Him. The Overcomer is the one whose life was changed by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony. It is not relying on ourselves but on Him. The promises are receive not when we get to heaven but they were given to us while we are on this earth. We have the victory in Jesus so that sin, death, sickness and the grave have been overcome for us already right here and now.
