In Revelation chapters 2 and 3, the Spirit speaks to seven churches in seven letters. Each church (except one) has its own particular shortcomings, signs of the corruption that has plagued the church since biblical times.
In each situation, however, the Lord calls for some among the believers to overcome the degraded situation in order to meet the His need for a bright, shining lampstand—the testimony of Jesus in this dark world.
Many believers aspire to cooperate with the Lord to be such overcomers. At the same time, we’re acutely aware of our fallen, sinful nature, our failures, and our inability to follow the Lord absolutely.
How can we ever overcome?
The lyrics of this song emphasize one simple point—Christ is the unique Overcomer. He is in us, and when we contact Him in our spirit, we are overcoming. When we look at overcoming as a lifelong venture, we wonder if we can make it. But each one of us can turn to the Lord right now, contact Him as the Overcomer right now, and be overcoming—right now!
Revelation 12:11 says, “And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they loved not their soul-life even unto death.” Here, the overcomers triumph over the devil because they stand not on their own merit but on the Lord’s blood that cleanses them from every sin, and because they testify of the Lord’s victory over the devil.
First John 4:4 says, “You are of God, little children; and you have overcome them because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.” We have been born of God to be His children; Christ as the overcoming One is in us, and He is greater than the evil one and all who stand with him.
Romans 8:37 says, “But in all these things we more than conquer through Him who loved us.” The Lord has done everything for us. We can overcome in every situation not because of who we are, but because we are in Him and He is in us!
When we contact Christ as the unique Overcomer, we are overcoming RIGHT NOW!
