LESSON 5 

 

SIGNS IN THE CHURCH – THE VICTORIOUS CHURCH

 

Jesus Builds a Church that will prevail.

V     Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

 

“I have overcome the world”

V     John 16:32-33 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.  These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

 

We are delivered through the sacrifice of Christ

V     Galatians 1:3-4 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

 

It is in our difficulties that we find the greatest victories through Jesus Christ

V     Romans 8:35-39 Read this and be encouraged – “we are more than conquerors”.

 

 

 

 

 

Summary

We have a foundation and a pattern that Christ has given; we are workers together with Him. The Church belongs to Christ, He purchased it, He designed it and He is building it. Hallelujah, it is not man’s church.
