Your afflictions and challenges in life can either put you under, or become the most valuable raw material imaginable for advancing the Kingdom of God. It is your choice One of the main goals of the Kingdom of God is to replace Satan's rule with God's rule. Overcoming, in the Biblical sense, will do that, and will turn your afflictions, curses, and other challenges in life into the building material for God's Kingdom, jewels. In this book, you will learn how to live your live in the overcoming lifestyle, which will accomplish that and will glorify God. "I did not set out to write a book, rather I wrote down what my family lived." Larry Chkoreff “Why are we sitting here until we die?” That is what the four lepers said in 2 Kings chapter 7 when they felt that their lives were hopeless. They resided in Samaria, which was besieged by the Syrians. The people were suffering starvation. Also they were boiling their own children for food. You may be in oppressed circumstances. But you do not need to sit there until you die. You need to know that there is something you can do. First, you need to know that the spiritual army that has besieged you is already defeated. Jesus defeated Satan at the Cross. Next, you need to know that if you enter into the overcoming lifestyle that you will enter into the abundant life as Jesus described it. As you walk and live this lifestyle, you will bring others into it just as the four lepers did. Your afflictions, circumstances, economic environment, medical environment, and nation in which you live do not limit overcoming. Overcoming is not based upon living in the First World or the Third World. The Word of God will operate in a human heart wherever you may live. The requirement is the condition of the soil of your heart, not the natural soil in which you live. God is able to work in any environment. His power is not limited by the culture in which you live, it is only limited by the honesty and passion of your own heart. My family and I have overcome some very difficult and naturally impossible circumstances. We have “done” something and have been overcomers, rather than just sit there and die. What I write here is not just what I have learned, but as John said (paraphrased) in his first epistle, “We have seen it with our eyes, our life has touched it, testified to it, and we now proclaim it to you, the eternal life which was with the Father and has appeared to us.” We have seen Jesus in our overcoming, and now testify to you, that He is real, alive, and on task for you! “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched – this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ” (1 John 1:1-3, NIV). John went on and said, “And we are now writing these things to you so that our joy [in seeing you included] may be full [and your joy may be complete]” (1 John 1:4, Amplified Bible).
