Experience the Victory That Is Yours in Christ

In the Middle East, where I grew up, professional thieves don’t usually break and enter. They go around the houses and push on the doors to see if anyone has left his door unlocked, and only then do they go in to steal and rob and destroy.

Satan is a gentleman thief. He does not break and enter. If he comes into your life, it is because you have allowed him in, because one or two of those doors are swinging on their hinges.

Be aware of the number of doors you may be leaving unlocked. Anger is a door. Bitterness is a door. Hatred is a door. Lying is a door. Rebellion is a door. Envy is a door. Sexual lust is a door. Greed is a door. Shame is a door. These doors, if they are not checked and bolted every day, will give the Enemy access to your soul.

And there is another door - ignorance. For the first step to conquering your Enemy is knowing him. Know his operational procedure. Know when he attacks, how he attacks, where he attacks. Any army worth its name remains in a constant state of readiness, alert to its enemy’s activities. The army that is well informed can never be overwhelmed by a surprise attack.

All this exhortation to readiness may have you worried. Is our Enemy in the invisible war so stealthy and powerful that we are in constant danger of being overrun? The answer, of course, is no. For one thing, we need to take the long view and remember that the outcome of this war is already decided. No matter how many battles the devil may win, in the end he is going to be vanquished. That means we are the only army in history to be guaranteed success before firing a single shot.

Therefore we should take care to build the right attitude. We are on the winning side. Victory is assured. You may be saying, “I am not afraid of the devil.” And that’s good. But that is not the central issue. Far more important is whether the devil is afraid of you. What have you done lately to scare the devil? What victory have you scored to make him run for cover?

First Saudi Convert on THE KINGDOM SAT

Last month, Leading The Way’s 24/7 satellite television channel, THE KINGDOM SAT, launched a new program called “Behind the Dunes” featuring teachings from a Saudi Arabian convert. This is a significant milestone, as Brother Al Fadi is the first Christian with a Muslim background who will be a featured Bible teacher on THE KINGDOM SAT.

Dressed in traditional Saudi clothing, Brother Al Fadi—formerly a Wahhabi Muslim, the most extreme branch of Sunni Islam—uses his experiences as a platform to share the Gospel, contrasting the teachings of the Qur’an with the teachings of the Bible.

“When I came [to Christ], I brought all of my Islamic thinking,” he says in the first episode of the program. “I wanted to know how to please Christ through prayers and fasting, living the way I am supposed to in terms of worship, rituals, and traditions. But I found out eventually that Christ gave me freedom. These shackles were broken. All that is required of me is to be His servant alone.”

The juxtaposition of a man in traditional Saudi dress, preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and sharing about his experiences as a former Muslim is a powerful image that we pray will resonate with Muslim audiences.

Broadcasting content from a Saudi convert is a step of faith for Leading The Way in reaching Muslims for Christ—but it is not without risks, as conversion from Islam to Christianity is forbidden in Saudi Arabia. Here are three ways you can pray for THE KINGDOM SAT and the new “Behind the Dunes” program:

  • Pray for God to use this program as an effective ministry tool for our Muslim viewers. Pray for many to find Christ through this program.
  • Pray for God to use this program to provide Biblical guidance for new converts who need Biblical guidance as they walk out their faith in Muslim countries.
  • Pray for God’s shield of protection to cover THE KINGDOM SAT programs, viewers, and follow-up teams.

Your Battle Plan for Spiritual Victory

From the desk of Dr. Michael Youssef

 

Years ago, I wrote a book called Know Your Real Enemy. Revised and updated for today’s battlefield, it has been republished as Conquer: Your Battle Plan for Spiritual Victory. I want to reiterate its message because I believe it is so pertinent for our times as more and more churches are departing from Biblical authority, leaving the door open to all kinds of false gods and gospels.

If we could peer into Satan’s playbook, I believe we’d find that our enemy has a battle plan targeting each of us by name. I believe the best way we can defend ourselves and live in victory is to fill our minds and our homes with God’s Truth.

We recently heard from a Christian father in Canada who had struggled with alcoholism. After years of sobriety, he was invited to a party at a bar. He convinced himself he could have “just one beer” without losing his sobriety. As he drove to the bar, he listened to our Leading The Way broadcast and heard about the moral compromise of Lot in the book of Genesis. The Truth of God’s Word stopped this man and turned him back home to his family.

“I was experiencing a lot of joy when I drove home,” he told us. “It was a victory—a victory over sin, relying on Christ. That message was pointed exactly where I needed it to be. It couldn’t have been any more perfect.”

Experiencing spiritual victory is simply a matter of understanding and applying the Word of God. This is why Leading The Way continues to proclaim Christ 4,300 times a week to more than 190 countries. Through these efforts, a Christian father was reminded of the danger of spiritual compromise—all in God’s perfect timing.

This month, I would like to offer you a copy of my new book, Conquer, for your gift of any amount to the ministry of Leading The Way. Your support allows Leading The Way to proclaim God’s Truth at critical moments in the lives of listeners, readers, and viewers all over the world. Through your giving, you will not only receive teaching to equip you in your spiritual walk—you will also help us equip millions of listeners and viewers around the world with Biblical Truth.

I hope you’ll partner with us!

In Christ,
