John Wesley had a turbulent time preaching the gospel to the vast regions of England. In those days, the means of transportation was solely  to saddle a horse’s back. He was severely beaten up on many occasions by the flu virus yet he continued to water the land of England with the ‘’Heavenly’’ showers of the gospel. He began to read and study the Bible in the year 1729, this great preacher continued to digest and dispense the word of GOD from that time henceforth until the day he flew home to be with the saints. It is on record that when John Wesley became a scholar of the scriptures, he devoted all his time to the scriptures and became an aficionado of just one book (the Bible) .What gave him that undefeated tenacity to carry on with the work of the kingdom even when the devil was busy fighting him with mortal afflictions of the body? Why didn’t he succumb to the harsh conditions that prevailed the air? It was that undefeated nature of our savior Jesus Christ inherent in us that made John Wesley to weather the storm and successfully evangelize the whole of England.

Billy Graham had his own fair share of mortal woes and afflictions and he still kept the candle light of the gospel burning. He made nonsense of the devil’s tentacles of afflictions simply because he has the same undefeated spirit in his gene like our Lord Jesus Christ. This is no doubt the umbrella cover of the Holy Spirit which adds an indescribable strength inside our mortal weaknesses. ‘’But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to GOD, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light. Once you were not a people but now you are the people of GOD; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy’’ (NIV 1 Peter 2 : 9-10).

When Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke began his Christ for all nations crusade, he did not have enough money inside his pocket to finance his soul winning activities. By faith, he trusted GOD to make available the necessary provisions.’’ And my GOD shall supply all our needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus’’ (NIV Philippians 4: 17). It was so clear to Reinhard Bonnke that his alliance with the undefeated champion of champions would make his divine mandate to take the gospel to the far ends of the world a fruitful venture. Not only did GOD provide him with financial blessings and an atmosphere of miracles, He has also been protecting him from the ugly plans of terrorist organizations across the world. Reinhard Bonnke started by preaching to just 5 people but today, he has reached out to over 450 million souls in Africa and over 700 million souls in the other continents of the world.

Jesus Christ single handedly defeated death on the cross of Calvary, invariably sending the devil into an everlasting abyss of torment. He has trampled upon sicknesses and diseases, even poverty and misfortunes can not enter inside the ring and do battle with ‘’Him’’. He has paid for our transgressions with ‘’His blood’’ so today we are redeemed forever. He is the only one to date that had successfully walked bare footed on water, dismantling the powers of the force of gravity. ‘’He is the image of the invisible GOD, the first born over all creation. For by Him all things were created: things in Heaven and on Earth, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities, all things were created by Him for Him. He is before all things and in Him all things hold together. And He is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning and the first born from among the dead, so that in everything He might have supremacy’’ (NIV Colossians 1: 15-18).

If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Savior, please do so today because tomorrow may never be. If you want to be unbeatable, then make a quick decision today to serve the unbeatable champion of champions and king of kings. Jesus is just a call away, dial His line so that you would be protected from the explosive bomb of the devil. J-E-S-U-S is that hotline that would make a difference in your life today. Dial that line now, your sins and sorrows would be washed away. Only Jesus Christ can save you from the deadly basilisk stare of the devil.
