Pastor Mike Augsburger taught on Sunday that we live our lives in the middle of a war-zone and not an amusement park. It is imperative that we stay on guard in the messiness of this world. Yet, even though we live in this war-zone we know that God is in the middle of cleaning up the mess and one day he will come and set everything right again. He will renew all things. Jesus has won. 

The book of Revelation is filled with the promises mentioned above that sin, Satan, and evil will be abolished by "the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony." All throughout Revelation we see that Jesus really will set all things right and put a final end to death. 

This Sunday we are singing a song called Overcome. A lot of the language in Overcome is taken from  Revelation. The lyrics do a fantastic job focusing our hearts attention towards the victor. Christ will finish what he started. Every victory is found in Christ. The very perfect God-man was poured out as a satisfying offering and we can be assured that he will come to set all things right.

Revelation 12:11 - They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. 

All authority
Every victory is Yours
All authority
Every victory is Yours

Savior worthy of honor and glory
Worthy of all our praise
For You overcame
Jesus awesome in power forever
Awesome and great is Your Name
For You overcame

Seated above enthroned in the Father's love
Destined to die poured out for all mankind

God's only Son perfect and spotless One
He never sinned but suffered as if He did

Power in hand speaking the Father's plan
You're sending us out light in this broken land

We will overcome
By the blood of the Lamb
And the word of our testimony
Everyone overcome
