On contact withrepparttar adversaries,one does not need to pressrepparttar 148056 'panic' button(2 Kings 6:15). One should receiverepparttar 148057 opening of one's inner eyes to seerepparttar 148058 heavenly hosts on one's side(2 Kings 6:16-17). What attractsrepparttar 148059 heavenly hosts to one's side? It isrepparttar 148060 presence ofrepparttar 148061 Lord himself(Matt. 28:20)-the Lord mighty in battle(Psalm 24:8)! And God dwells in his people's praises(Psalm 22:3)!!! Remember thatrepparttar 148062 battle is alwaysrepparttar 148063 Lord's(1 Sam 17:47)! The victory has already been won on calvary(Col.2:15)!!! This victory belongs to every Christian(1 Cor.15:57). Inrepparttar 148064 light of this victory,any Christian can effectively userepparttar 148065 authority given by Christ(Luke 10:19) to confront and overcome any adversary! All authority in heaven and on earth is given to Jesus Christ(Matt.28:18)!!!

Revelation 3:8 (King James Version) "I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name."

Please note that it is only in Christ that anyone can findrepparttar 148066 door of destiny,and defeat whatever adversaries associated with it! Therefore everyone needs to be in Christ so as to fulfill destiny! To be in Christ,a person needs to repent of one's sins,and believe in Jesus Christ as one's personal Lord and Saviour(Acts 20:21).

Revelation 3:7 (King James Version) "And torepparttar 148067 angel ofrepparttar 148068 church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hathrepparttar 148069 key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;"

Jeremiah 33:3 (The Message) "Call to me and I will answer you. I'll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own."

1 Corinthians 2:9-10 (New International Version) "However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him" "but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, evenrepparttar deep things of God."

Psalm 119:18 (New International Version)

"Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law."

Real faith is expressed in love(Gal 5:6),andrepparttar 148055 evidence of love is obedience to God(John 14:15). In obedience to God,real faith humbly seeks God,who then reveals by his Spirit inrepparttar 148056 bible(his law)all things(2 Peter 1:3) relevant torepparttar 148057 fulfillment of destiny. Faith then proceeds to use those revealed things to fulfill destiny,for faith without works is dead(James 2:26)!

Where then is 'Rhema Island'? It is that wonderful place in God where anyone can find,pursue,and fulfill his/her divine destiny both now and in eternity! It is a global network of people who appear to be 'superheroes' when they are just heroes of faith(Heb 11)! To get to that isle,each person must be born again through a personal encounter with Jesus Christ(John 3: 3). This process of 'rebirth'(the new birth) involves repentance(Mark 1:14-15) from sin,and faith(John 3:16, 5:24) in Christ as one's personal Lord and Saviour. And this process is initiated byrepparttar 148058 word of Christ preached inrepparttar 148059 power ofrepparttar 148060 Spirit by those(both clergy and laity) that he sends torepparttar 148061 world as his witnesses(Rom 10:15).

For anyone on 'Rhema Island' who is facing challenges(storms even torepparttar 148062 scale of a tsunami),victory has been secured at Calvary where Christ died for mankind of all generations,and this isrepparttar 148063 victory that should be enforced by faith in order 'to riderepparttar 148064 storm' and win untorepparttar 148065 glorious end. Therefore be encouraged forrepparttar 148066 Lord within is much more greater thanrepparttar 148067 enemy without(1 John 4:4)!

1 John 5:4-5 (King James Version)

"For whatsoever is born of God overcomethrepparttar 148068 world: and this isrepparttar 148069 victory that overcomethrepparttar 148070 world, even our faith." "Who is he that overcomethrepparttar 148071 world, but he that believeth that Jesus isrepparttar 148072 Son of God?"
