Session 3

My name is Basie Martins. I trust that you are all well and I want to thank you again for listening to this series. For you who do not know, the topic of this series is, “How to Live Successfully and Victoriously in Christ”. It is all about us, the body of Christ, and us the church and us as individuals in the kingdom of God, being successful in all areas of life. It is about us claiming our full inheritance. It is about us putting in place on earth, which is already in heaven.

In the previous session, we discussed the fact and the reality that we as kings and priests in the kingdom of God, are not subject to all sorts of calamities and sicknesses out of our control. God gave us full control over our lives when He delegated His power and authority to us. We always have a choice. We can always choose the blessing or the curse. We can always choose life or death. It is solely up to us!

We are never innocent and never helpless victims to circumstances out of our control. What we do and what we fail to do determine our success in our lives. We either live in victory or we live in defeat because of our choices and our actions. Sicknesses and diseases and calamities cannot affect us if we are obedient to God and his word and his will. We do not have to believe the lies anymore. When the Son has set you free, you are free indeed!

As long as we take preventative action by not doing things that cause sicknesses and diseases and calamities and by doing things that prevent sicknesses and diseases and calamities. So with this preventative strategy, we need to do two things which will cause us to be immune against sicknesses and diseases and calamities.

Unfortunately, almost all of us are facing serious challenges with sicknesses and diseases and calamities that are already part of our lives. Those are the things that we brought over ourselves in the past. Although preventative action and restorative action have a lot in common, we do need to follow a slightly different strategy when dealing with existing sicknesses and diseases and calamities in our lives and that is what this session is all about.

In the previous session, we discussed the core requirement for success in this regard. We need faith, without which we cannot please God and we need to be obedient to the word and the will of God. We need to do things that are pleasing to God. So faith and obedience change our lives. It opens doors for us. It causes miracles in our lives. It makes impossible things possible in our lives. This is the reason why the Bible says that signs and wonders and miracles follow those that believe. This is why the Bible says that those who believe will live by every word that ever came out of the mouth of God.

The word of God is, therefore, the primary requirement in this regard. It is the word of God that changes us completely. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. The word of God is the foundational element or factor that makes everything and anything possible in our lives. The word of God is the doorway to change and the doorway to success and victory. The word of God changes everything.

This is where false doctrines and false teachings hinder us, sabotage us and even prevent us from taking up our inheritance. When Christians believe false doctrines it becomes very difficult and even impossible for them to take up their inheritance. Because of false doctrines, they won’t be able to slay the giants. They won’t be able to take preventative action and they won’t be able to restore their lives and they won’t be able to turn their lives around. So prevention and restoration will both be extremely difficult and even impossible if we believe false doctrines.

The word of God plays an extremely important part in all this. It is the word of God or the lack of the word of God that makes or breaks your ability to live in victory.

Just look at the importance of the following Scriptures and try to understand the importance of the true word of God in this regard:

John 15:7

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

2 Corinthians 1:20

For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

John 14:13-14

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

Matthew 21:21-22

Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

James 5:15

And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

Romans 8:37

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

John 10:10

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Mark 10:27

And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

John 16:24

Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

Matthew 7:7-8

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Mark 11:23-24

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

2 Timothy 1:7

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

John 8:36

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Jeremiah 1:12

Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.

Romans 8:31

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

So,as you can see, we need to know the word of God and we need to believe the word of God and we need to renew our minds. This produces faith. Faith and the word of God are linked to each other. One cannot exist without the other. The word of God automatically gives us the ability to believe. It automatically gives us faith. The word of God is spirit and it is life. It has a divinely built-in ability to produce faith automatically.

So we do the natural and the word produces the supernatural. We just believe what God said and the word produces faith automatically. It is just a matter of deciding. It is a decision. It starts with us deciding that we are willing to believe God. That decision opens the door. We do the easy part. We all need to declare, that, as from a particular moment in the life of all of us, that we are going to believe every word that ever came out of the mouth of God. We need to decide that we are no longer going to accommodate all sorts of arguments and excuses to cast doubt on the promises in the Bible. We are just going to believe the word of God, no matter how outrageously impossible it may sound. We are not going down the path of intellectual reasoning anymore. We are just going to believe God. Period. We are rejecting all false doctrines and false teachings from that moment on. We are starting all over again in this regard.

I have identified quite a few doctrines that make it impossible to take up our inheritance. These doctrines cause us to live lives of defeat instead of victory.

These doctrines are the following:

The false doctrine of generational curses. So although God promised mankind that He is about to repeal the law of generational curses through his prophet Jeremiah, people still believe this doctrine: Jeremiah 31:29-30 In those days people will no longer say, The parents have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge. Instead, everyone will die for their own sin; whoever eats sour grapes – their own teeth will be set on edge. This is what God promised in the days of Jeremiah and very soon after the promise, those days arrived.

And although God did declare that He has fulfilled this promise in the days of Ezekiel, people still believe in generational curses. Ezekiel 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. Read the whole chapter of Ezekiel 18 and you will clearly see that the promise made in the days of Jeremiah was indeed fulfilled in the days of Ezekiel. God was surprised that the Israelites were offended by this. See Ezekiel 18:19 Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father? When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live.

So people still refer to Scriptures about generational curse which was recorded in the Bible before Jeremiah and Ezekiel and they ignore the Scriptures that came after the Scriptures that they so zealously use to support their false doctrines. They refer to old laws that were legally repealed by God and still apply them to people today. They don’t do that with other Scriptures like the one about a tooth for a tooth which was also repealed. So, on the one hand, they admit that some Scriptures or laws were repealed but on the other hand, they refuse to admit that others were also repealed. The bottom line is that all Scriptures in the Bible about generational curses before Jeremiah 31 and Ezekiel 18 or before the days of Jeremiah and Ezekiel, need to be ignored because the law of generational curses has been repealed at that time. Those early laws were not valid anymore since it was repealed. 

Another doctrine that keeps people from victory is the false variation of spiritual warfare. This doctrine is very dangerous and has devastating results in the lives of people. It puts the children of God at a time before the cross, as if Jesus Christ did not defeat satan yet. So instead of reigning from a position of rest in Christ on the throne of Christ, these believers moved down again to the level of demons. They left the throne and they went down to the level of demons where they are fighting a never-ending war.

It is for this reason that I prefer people to familiarize themselves with the truths presented in the previous series about spiritual warfare first. It will give you the proper foundation to live victoriously and successfully in Christ. Without that foundation, this workshop will not be as effective as it is supposed to be. If you have problems with what I just said about these doctrines, you need to stop right here and go through the material presented in the Audio or YouTube series about Spiritual Warfare first. Without the proper foundation, your house will not stand.

People still believe doctrines that say that we do not have the same privileges that people had during Biblical times. During Biblical times people were healed but not today. During Biblical times people were baptized in the Holy Spirit but not today. During Biblical times people could cast out demons from people but not today. During Biblical times God spoke to his children through prophecy but not today. During Biblical times the gifts of the Spirit manifested in church or in people’s lives but not today. These false doctrines keep people in bondage. It causes defeat in people’s lives. Although there is no Biblical support for these doctrines, people believe it and they live according to these doctrines.

Everlasting Faith In God

People believe that they get sick because of situations out of there control. They believe they experience all sorts of calamities in their lives because of them being innocent victims of situations and because of things that they have no control over. They believe that they are mere victims in a bad and corrupt world. They believe that they get sick because of food and genetically inheritance. They believe that they can be demon-possessed because of food and innocent incidents like being at the wrong place at the wrong time or because of generational curses. They believe demons and ignorant exorcists in this regard. They believe that they cannot do anything about a lot of things. They believe that things are as they are because of life. They are taught to accept things in their lives which they are supposed to resist. All because they do not understand or know the word of God. They are going astray and they suffer because of ignorance.

They believe that the devil makes them sick. They do not believe that we bring sicknesses, diseases, and calamities over ourselves and our children. They do not believe that sicknesses and diseases are from God just as hell is from God. They do not want to be accountable for their actions, that is why they do not believe that sometimes God makes them sick. They believe that God is the same yesterday, tomorrow and forever but they do not want to believe this when it comes to chastisement and when it comes to the judgment of God.

The Bible is very clear on the fact that God did bring seriously life-threatening sicknesses, diseases and calamities unto his own people in the Old Testament and the New Testament and that He still does today. They do not believe the fact that when people experience calamities, sicknesses, and diseases that it is actually a red light warning them that they are reaping what they sowed and that they need to repent. That they need to change their behavior. That they can call the elders to pray for them and that they will be healed and their sins will be forgiven them. This is the will and the ways of God in this regard. So instead of seeking God’s face to determine where they slipped up, they just consult the medical profession and they just go on with life and they just keep on sinning. No wonder they get sicker and sicker and experience more and more calamities in their lives and eventually die because of this. Christians and even all people need to change this mindset. Toxic thinking will eventually cost you your life. The five-fold ministry and church leaders are directly responsible for this situation in the church. They failed to teach the children of God the truth in this regard. They failed to bring it under their attention that they are sick and that they experience all sorts of calamities in their lives because they are involved in sinful acts and behavior, living recklessly and very negligent when it comes to God and his word and his will.

I mentioned that the word of God is the primary force and the most important factor when it comes to living a victorious life in Christ. Whenever a person knows the true word of God and if he believes that word and if he is obedient to God and his will and his word, he will live a victorious life in Christ. He will live in faith and he will live by every word that ever came out of the mouth of God.

I am now going to discuss the steps that we need to follow to achieve this. I already mentioned that the word of God has a built-in ability to produce faith and I am going to tell you how I achieved faith in my life and what steps I followed to start to slay the giants in my life.

The secret is in meditating the word of God until faith is produced. It is not there immediately after you have read a Scripture or God’s promises in the Bible. It takes a little bit more time than that. So after I have read and heard the testimonies of great men and women of faith, God revealed to me the steps to produce miracle-working faith in my life. He showed me how He achieved that in the lives of these great men and women.

These are the steps that He instructed me to follow and which I did follow and which did build up the miracle-working faith in my heart that I needed: I decided that I am going to believe the word of God no matter how impossible it seemed and that I am going to act in faith. I cut and pasted all the promises of God from a digital Bible onto a word document and I printed them all. I did change every Scripture by applying it to me personally. I used the words I and me instead of Israel or you and so on. I put them up all over the walls in our house. I was literally surrounded by the word of God wherever I was in the house.

I started to read them over and over again, one by one continuously daily. I even attempted to learn these Scriptures by heart although I was not very successful with that. But I meditated on these Scriptures every day. I read them over and over again and again, loudly, and I could feel day by day how the Holy Spirit was nailing these Scriptures into my heart or building it into my heart like you build a brick wall. I repeated every word of every Scripture every day over and over again. Each time I emphasized a different part of each Scripture and I made sure that I made those all those Scriptures part of my being. I could feel how the word slowly but surely produced faith in my heart. I could feel it gradually build up in my heart. I could eventually identify the exact moment (the date and time) when each Scripture has produced enough faith in my heart for me to start acting on them.

As soon as I realized that I have the faith for a specific thing, I removed the worldly support system for the specific thing. Eventually, I canceled all my insurances, on my vehicles and all my belongings and I started to trust God for everything in my life. Although many things were already canceled because of my bad financial situation at that time, I decided not to renew them when my finances were restored at a later stage. Even today, I still have no medical insurance, no insurance on my vehicles, no alarm systems or any other worldly support system whatsoever. I am in the process of taking out medical insurance for my wife because I believe that one spouse should not gamble with the life of the other. She is also still using chronic medication for conditions causing stress in her life which is causing high blood pressure. I do not judge her for that. When she is ready, and when she has the faith to deal with this stress and fear, she will cut off this worldly support system as well. As I said, it is not easy but it is certainly possible and guaranteed if we persist. Sometimes the restoration process takes quite a long time. I was healed of all sicknesses and diseases in my life and I was delivered from all calamities and challenging situations and sin in my life but some of them took quite a while. Believe me, it was worth the effort. 

I live in faith. I trust God for everything I need. I live by every word that came out of the mouth of God.

As I said, at first it was extremely challenging. It was difficult but it became easier and easier day by day. I experienced resistance from all over. My wife and my family and even friends and colleagues were very concerned with what I was doing. They had all sorts of problems and concerns with the way I trusted God and the way I interpreted the Bible. They thought that I went insane. They attempted to make me understand what the Bible really says and what the will of God really is about certain matters. They told me that nobody believes what I believe and nobody interprets the Bible the way I do. They gave me a lot of warnings and they even tried to scare me. Some even told me that I was surely going to die and that I was surely going to lose a lot of things. They accused me of a lot of bad things and many people rejected me because of me stepping out in faith.

I just ignored them all. When you really believe the word of God, when the word of God really produced faith in your heart then you do not care what people say anymore. That is when you only regard what God said. People could not scare me anymore. The moment that I have slain the giant of fear, many doors of success and victory immediately opened for me. I could finally understand how Paul could shake off a deadly snake that has just bitten him and how Abram could be ready to kill his only son without thinking twice. The Bible says that Abram did not fear to do that because he knew that God would raise Isaac again. Paul knew that if God said that he must go to Rome to carry out the work that He called him for that the snake could not kill him at all. They just believed God and that is what I intended to do. Sure enough, even I had to face life-threatening situations and circumstances and I behaved just like they did. It was God’s faith in action. It was simply there when I needed it. The word of God just produces faith automatically. It was not because of me. 

So I started to slay the giants, one by one. At times I panicked but the faith in my heart just kept building and building as I kept meditating on the promises of God daily.

There were many giants. When Marinda and I started this faith walk in Christ our financial situation could not be any worse. We were financially in dreadful situations. We were on the verge of losing everything that we owed. We could not pay any of our debts. The house, the vehicles and everything we owed were hanging in the balance. We could not understand that after we gave up everything, after we reported for duty, after we stepped out in faith after we did exactly what we knew God wanted us to do, why we would be facing all these challenging situations all at once. Marinda especially could not understand why God was not providing? Why was He not healing us immediately? Instead, everything quickly deteriorated at a frightening speed. Numerous times I got into the shower not knowing if I would have made it out alive. I was weak and my heart played all sorts of tricks on me. It just stopped beating many times by going into a sort of a state of vibration. I slept countless times with both my hands completely dead. It woke me up many times and I had to massage both my arms many times to get the blood back into my hands.

I was very sick. I had a heart attack just a year or two before we started on this journey of faith. I was still weak and my medical condition was very unstable. I had to use chronic medication for my heart. At one stage I learned to trust God completely when it comes to my health. I could literally feel one day that I do not fear trusting God for my health completely because of the word and promises of God regarding sicknesses, diseases, and calamities. I stopped all chronic and other medication and I decided not to make use of the medical profession anymore. It did scare me a bit but I refused to be intimidated by emotions of fear, especially when I stopped using the chronic medication for my heart. Fear told me that my blood is going to thicken rapidly and that I am going to get another heart attack. fear told me that my heartbeat is going to go crazy and that I will eventually die because of it. Fear told me that I am going to die because of a stroke. Fear told me that we are going to lose everything that we owe. I knew that I had to kill the giant called fear, and I am referring to the emotion of fear. As I mentioned in a previous session, there is no such thing as a spirit of fear. Fear is an emotion in our souls that the devil wants us to succumb to. We need to subdue our emotions. We need to control our emotions. It is a decision. We do not have to fight demonic spirits of fear. That is a lie.

So whenever I felt fear building up in me, I ran to the walls and I started to meditate those Scriptures about fear and the promises of God about his provisions and about health and sicknesses. Over and over until I could feel how faith replaced the fear. I became more and more convinced every day that God gave us divine provision, divine protection, divine maintenance, and divine healing every day of our lives and that it is all guaranteed at all times under all circumstances, as long as we do not give up.

I just kept on doing this and I refused to give up. And one day, the wonders and miracles started to happen. The first thing that happened was divine financial provision. You see, I left my job to start a full-time ministry without any income. God called me to teach his church but He did not want me to join a denomination. He also did not want me to minister to a congregation or pastor a congregation. So this meant that I wouldn’t be able to earn a salary. I was completely dependent on God to provide for me and my family supernaturally.

One morning, when we did not even have any food left in the house, I saw a vision of a person I know. In the vision, this person walked to me and he stopped a few feet away from me. He smiled at me and he formed his lips like kissing me. He then turned around and he left. I knew that the symbolic meaning of these actions in dreams and visions is that this person favored me and my family. During that same week, that person knocked on my door and to make a long story short, he committed to carrying my ministry financially. He paid quite a lot of money into my bank account every month for almost three years. More than a quarter of a million rand. It was just enough to keep us going for the period that I mentioned. The day that this man stopped providing for us, that day my wife was signed on permanently at a job where she was a temporary worker. She got a huge raise and that raise was equivalent to the amount that the man I mentioned provided for us monthly. So we did not lose anything. Everything was paid for and we managed to catch up all arrears. We did not lose a thing. God was faithful and He honored his word.

There were many giants and the giants were challenging. After we started the walk of faith, I had about five heart attacks over two years. Every time I just ignored the symptoms. I just walked into the field or to a thatched barbecue area in my backyard where I usually pray and I just reminded God of his promises and I kept trusting God. At this stage, I did not fear anymore. I knew that I knew that God will not allow me to die. Every time the pain was excruciating exactly like it was the first time when I had a heart attack (before I started the walk of faith in Christ) when I was admitted into hospital when a cardiologist inserted a stent into one of my arteries.

My heart was damaged when I had this first heart attack but it got worse after I decided to walk the walk of faith. It became weaker and weaker and my heartbeat became worse and worse. It became very irregular as a result of me not using the chronic medication for my heart. Often I realized that my heart was not beating anymore but just vibrating. During incidents like this, I just ignored all these symptoms knowing that God would not fail me. I knew that I was healed on the cross many years ago and that I do not have to fear sicknesses and diseases that destroy people in the afternoon, according to Psalm 91. I knew that I could believe God and trust in his word. It is guaranteed to work in my life because I believed it and because I made it mine. So at times, when I realized that my heart is not beating anymore but just vibrating, I could feel how both my hands go numb and tickling, I reminded God of his word and I just fell asleep.

Three different times during this period, I could feel how the muscles in one half of my face began to jerk and pull uncontrollably. I remember each time thinking that this is probably how it feels when a person has a stroke. I remember not feeling any fear knowing that I can ignore these incidents completely because of Psalm 91. Twice I just fell asleep and once I experienced it during the day. I just kept doing what I was busy and it stopped after a few minutes. I knew that this was faith in action but that it was not my faith but God’s faithfulness and God’s faith in action. It was God’s faith produced by the word of God.

I once experienced a burst or a small explosion in my left eye. I immediately had this black thing moving around and flowing around in my eye and it obstructed my vision. I remember that during this incident I instantly started to fear because it was very sudden and unexpected. I was busy frying an egg when it happened. I however recovered quickly and I reminded God of Psalm 91. I declared my healing and I started to destroy this black mass in my I by casting it out. It took a few weeks for this thing in my eye to dissolve and disappear. Today, just a few floaters are left and it does not hinder my eye-site at all. I am still declaring my healing in this regard and I know that even the floaters will be gone soon. It will disappear completely because I have the power to remove it with the word of God. It has no choice other than to listen and to be obedient just like the fig tree or the mountain that Jesus talked about.

Healing became a reality in my life. I was healed of another eye condition after a medical doctor (years ago) told me that I would have to use chronic medication for this eye condition for the rest of my life. I was healed of a very serious heart condition. I was healed of gout.

Everything that I believed became a reality. I discovered that the word of God is really the truth and that we can trust God and his word completely without fear. I discovered that nothing is truly impossible with God and in the lives of believers. I finally realized that God can be utterly trusted. I finally realized that everything is guaranteed. Other than a lack of faith and disobedience, which I have discussed in a previous session, there can never be a nasty surprise out there. God is not going to fail you and tell you, sorry my child, you did not understand this correctly or that correctly and unfortunately I could not help you or anything of the kind. God will never fail you. If you have faith and if you are obedient to God you can trust God for whatever you want to and it will be like you believed. It is guaranteed. When I finally realized this, I completely understood why Abram and Paul were so fearless when things happened to them.

I just want to mention that I rarely asked God to heal me or to do something for me. I commanded healing by speaking life and healing to my body and I talked directly to these conditions. I did what Jesus did and I talked to the mountains and the trees and the situations in my life. I confessed and I declared the word of God in my life. I never begged God for anything. I knew that everything was paid for two thousand years ago and that everything belongs to me. I knew that God does not heal anymore. He already healed us all two thousand years ago. I knew I just hat to plugin and take my healing like the woman with the issue of blood did. This was the secret. At first, I did not understand this concept but the moment I grasped this my life changed. The moment that I learned that God does not do anything anymore, that He does not heal anymore, that He does not work behind the scenes anymore, that He is not putting things into place in your life anymore but that God entered into his eternal rest, at that moment, my life changed.

At that moment I realized that it is all up to us. We need to storm heaven and take it by force. We need to reign as kings in the kingdom of God and take what is ours. We need to take up our inheritance. It is ours, it belongs to us. Healing belongs to us, provision belongs to us, divine maintenance belongs to us and divine protection belongs to us. We just need to step out in faith and take it in faith. We just have to believe the word of God, make it ours and act on it in faith. If we do, everything that we believe will become a reality. It is absolutely guaranteed. It cannot fail. You will live a long healthy life lacking nothing. You might not be rich but you will have everything you need when you need it. 

I discovered that certain things are more challenging than others and I also experienced failures. I did use medication occasionally and I did consult a medical doctor once just after I started the walk of faith. As I mentioned in the previous session, it is dangerous to ignore certain things if you do not have the faith for it or if you are disobedient to God and his will. Read Hebrews 11:6 and 1 John 3:22

It can lead to your death or the death of a family member if you refuse medical assistance if you do not have the necessary faith or obedience for it. rather back off and live to face the same situation another day. I have realized and I did experience that we can face one condition at a particular time but not another situation that might be more challenging at the same time. You must learn to face what you have faith for but to postpone what you do not have faith for yet. It is for this reason that we should not gamble with the lives of our children or our loved ones. Do not feel dismayed or condemned when you face a situation that is just too much for you. Postpone that situation and challenge it on another day. Make use of the systems that the world offers us but make a point of it not to fall into mediocrity. If you do, that thing will kill you one day. We do need to slay every giant in our lives.

The giant that we do not slay will slay us eventually. Israel had to conquer all the heathen nations in the land of Canaan. Although they did experience some defeats, they did conquer some of these nations at a later stage. However, they failed to conquer them all and they failed to be obedient to God regarding his prescriptions in dealing with these nations. They only claimed about 10% of the land that they were promised. They did not claim their full inheritance and those nations that they failed to conquer, those giants that they failed to slay eventually defeated them and they lost their inheritance because of that. 

This is all within our reach. This are all our privileges and our inheritance in Christ. We can achieve it all. We can be victorious in life and Christ if we truly want to be. We just need to step out in faith, we need to flex our faith muscles and we need to storm heaven and take what is ours by force. It is not that easy but it is completely worth the effort. The joy and satisfaction that we will experience when we have slain that last giant is priceless. For me, there is no choice. If we do not claim our inheritance, we will experience a lot of negative and bad things. We will experience situations in life that will be just too much for us to handle. It will lead to seriously bad experiences and it will kill us before our time. God wants us all to live a life that will completely satisfy us and that will make us happy and joyful and blessed. He wants us to live a wonderful and full life full of blessings and joy. Do not be afraid. Stay tuned and learn how to achieve this. It is working and it is guaranteed for everybody no matter who you are or what you are experiencing in your life right now. You can and you will turn everything around again. You will be restored completely. There is no exception. The only conditions are that you report for this and that you never give up and that you keep on trusting God.

This is all for today. See you next time.
