REAL VICTORIES 10-25-19 VIDEO TONY EVANS ARMOR
The Bible is filled with details of real victories. Circumstances that changed supernaturally only because the Lord intervened. Let us be like David and rehearse the victories. We do this we can expect the Lord to do the same thing in our lives now! Victory means to be victorious to conquer to overcome the enemy to vanquish a foe. For our nation read stories about George Washington Crossing the Delaware river, a great testimony.
George Washington told the army if you were not fighting---go to Divine Services implore blessings from heaven for our safety and defense.
1 Sam 17:33 Saul answered David, "You can't go and fight this Philistine. You're too young and inexperienced and he's been at this fighting business since before you were born."
34 David said, "I've been a shepherd, tending sheep for my father. Whenever a lion or bear came and took a lamb from the flock,
35 I'd go after it, knock it down, and rescue the lamb. If it turned on me, I'd grab it by the throat, wring its neck, and kill it.
36 Lion or bear, it made no difference I killed it. And I'll do the same to this Philistine pig who is taunting the troops of God-Alive.
37 God, who delivered me from the teeth of the lion and the claws of the bear, will deliver me from this Philistine." Saul said, "Go. And God help you!" MSG
1 Sam 14:6 And Jonathan said to his young armor-bearer, Come, and let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For there is nothing to prevent the Lord from saving by many or by few.

11 So both of them let the Philistine garrison see them. And the Philistines said, Behold, the Hebrews are coming out of the holes where they have hidden themselves.

1 Sam 14:14 And that first slaughter which Jonathan and his armor-bearer made was about twenty men within about a half acre of land [which a yoke of oxen might plow].

Celebrating the success of the cross
1 JN 5:4 You see, every child of God overcomes the world, for our faith is the victorious power that triumphs over the world. TPT
HEB 11: 5 Faith lifted Enoch from this life and he was taken up into heaven! He never had to experience death; he just disappeared from this world because God promoted him. For before he was translated to the heavenly realm his life had become a pleasure to God.
6And without faith living within us it would be impossible to please God. For we come to God in faith knowing that he is real and that he rewards the faith of those who give all their passion and strength into seeking him.
7Faith opened Noahs heart to receive revelation and warnings from God about what was coming, even things that had never been seen. But he stepped out in reverent obedience to God and built an ark that would save him and his family. By his faith the world was condemned, but Noah received Gods gift of righteousness that comes by believing. Faith of the Patriarchs
8Faith motivated Abraham to obey Gods call and leave the familiar to discover the territory he was destined to inherit from God. So he left with only a promise and without even knowing ahead of time where he was going, Abraham stepped out in faith.
9 He lived by faith as an immigrant in his promised land as though it belonged to someone else. He journeyed through the land living in tents with Isaac and Jacob who were persuaded that they were also co-heirs of the same promise.
10His eyes of faith were set on the city with unshakable foundations, whose architect and builder is God himself.
11Sarahs faith embraced the miracle power to conceive even though she was barren and was past the age of childbearing, for the authority of her faith rested in the One who made the promise, and she tapped into his faithfulness.TPT
HEB 11:17 Faith operated powerfully in Abraham for when he was put to the test he offered up Isaac. Even though he received Gods promises of descendants, he was willing to offer up his only son!
18For God had promised, Through your son Isaac your lineage will carry on your name.
19Abrahams faith made it logical to him that God could raise Isaac from the dead, and symbolically, thats exactly what happened.
20The power of faith prompted Isaac to impart a blessing to his sons, Jacob and Esau, concerning their prophetic destinies.
21Jacob worshiped in faiths reality at the end of his life, and leaning upon his staff he imparted a prophetic blessing upon each of Josephs sons.
22Faith inspired Joseph and opened his eyes to see into the future, for as he was dying he prophesied about the exodus of Israel out of Egypt, and gave instructions that his bones were to be taken from Egypt with them.
23Faith prompted the parents of Moses at his birth to hide him for three months, because they realized their child was exceptional and they refused to be afraid of the kings edict.
24Faith enabled Moses to choose Gods will, for although he was raised as the son of Pharaohs daughter, he refused to make that his identity,
25choosing instead to suffer mistreatment with the people of God. Moses preferred faiths certainty above the momentary enjoyment of sins pleasures. 26He found his true wealth in suffering abuse for being anointed, more than in anything the world could offer him, for his eyes looked with wonder not on the immediate, but on the ultimatefaiths great reward!
27Holding faiths promise Moses abandoned Egypt and had no fear of Pharaohs rage because he persisted in faith as if he had seen God who is unseen.
28Faith stirred Moses to perform the rite of Passover and sprinkle lambs blood, to prevent the destroyer from harming their firstborn.
29Faith opened the way for the Hebrews to cross the Red Sea as if on dry land, but when the Egyptians tried to cross they were swallowed up and drowned!
Jericho and Rahab
30Faith pulled down Jerichos walls after the people marched around them for seven days!
31Faith provided a way of escape for Rahab the prostitute, avoiding the destruction of the unbelievers, because she received the Hebrew spies in peace.
More Faith Champions
32And what more could I say to convince you? For there is not enough time to tell you of the faith of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel, and the prophets.
33Through faiths power they conquered kingdoms and established true justice. Their faith fastened onto their promises and pulled them into reality! It was faith that shut the mouth of lions, TPT
HEB 11:39 These were the true heroes, commended for their faith, yet they lived in hope without receiving the fullness of what was promised them.
40But now God has invited us to live in something better than what they hadfaiths fullness! This is so that they could be brought to finished perfection alongside of us. TPT
PHIL 4:1 My dear and precious friends, whom I deeply love, you have truly become my glorious joy and crown of reward. Now arise in the fullness of your union with our Lord. TPT immovable strong in the Lord
