Conquering Lukewarm

Conquering Lukewarm

“The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his Throne.” Revelation 3:21

The greatest hindrance to overcoming a lukewarm heart and a lukewarm church is the thought that you will never conquer a lukewarm spirit. This thought is a lie, and it must be defeated.

To the lukewarm church in Laodicea, Christ not only gave one of the greatest revival-promises, He also called them to conquer.

You need to know that when Christ visits a lukewarm church, He is looking for conquerors. Christ is looking for people who will overcome the lukewarm spirit.

Notice that Jesus makes a special promise to those who overcome the lukewarm spirit: I will grant him to sit with me on my throne. This is a threefold promise.
To have open access to the manifest presence of Christ. 
To sit with Christ on His throne.
To reign with Christ.

If your church is lukewarm, Christ is calling you, and everyone else, to be overcomers, and to conquer. Christ is looking for you to be a conqueror-- to conquer the lukewarm spirit in Jesus name!

Loving Father, I take my place in Christ and I declare victory over my lukewarm church. Come and manifest your presence among us and lead us all in victory in Jesus name.
