Luke 13:20,21 - To what shall I liken the kingdom of God? It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three mearures of meal till it was all leavened.
Much like light that exposes, or salt that preserves, leaven influences it's surroundings in a subtle but overpowering way. So it is with the infitrating power of the Kingdom of God.
Without a revelation of what God intends to do with His church, we cannot move in overcoming faith.
When the main goal of our faith is to keep us safe from the devil, our faith becomes inferior to what God expects. Jesus had in mind more for us than survival. We are destined to overcome.
Every conversion plunders hell. Every miracle destroys the works of the devil. Every God encounter is an "invasion of the almighty" into our desperate condition. This is our joy.
Revelation 12:11 - And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
