SUPERHEROES

“And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.”

Daniel 11:32‬‬‬‬‬

I know that some of us whenever we see the word Superheroes, we have our mind on fictional characters in movies like Superman and the likes and how they do good things and save the world from would-be villains and how he would raise up more superheroes as himself or in a league of superheroes, well I won’t say you right or totally wrong about the whole superheroes concept as it were, firstly our being superheroes is not fiction because we are assured of the finished works and realities of Christ Jesus when we became believers.

Secondly, every of these superhero has power I.e is empowered with superhuman abilities,some have superhuman strength and in our case as believers we know that Dan 21:32b says that “but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits”,some others have extraordinary power and in our case as believers  in John 1:12 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” and some possess extraordinary wisdom and in our case we know that we have been granted wisdom already;“For the LORD giveth wisdom: Out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding” Proverbs 2:6, some as well are immortals and in our case we have eternal life in Christ Jesus “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.”1 John 5:11, and we also know that they would have a weapon they will use to fight and ours as believers is a mighty weapon as written that “(for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)” 2 Corinthians 10:4, all these amongst other qualities.‬‬‬

Thirdly we know that these would be superheroes will always have a type of clothe they wear that is unique to them and what they represent or what they do and wherever they appear or go and it also Carries an emblem and in our case as believers We know that our garment is the armor of God just as we see in Eph 6:13, “Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day and having done all, to stand.” And this armor we are made impregnable to the attacks of the enemies and if we read further in Eph 6:14-17 we will see what our armor entails 

Our major characteristics as believers cut across our faith in the undying and unending grace of our Lord Jesus because it’s by faith we access our realities in the spirit and bring them forth into the physical and we know that these realities are limitless, also our prayer life, we draw strength and power from the Holy ghost when we see pray; James 5:16b “the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much”; the righteous man being a believer.

A part of our confession in church says “we are superheroes” this should be a daily confession in our life and the mindset of every believer that I am an extraordinary person and I do exploits. 

Further reading: Philippians 4:13, Jeremiah 51:20-23

Confession: I declare that I do valiantly as I go out today and I become the superhero that the whole world is talking about. Hallelujah
