One day the complete victory shall be the people of God's. Then they shall rejoice in their King through whom they have obtained the victory. In heaven, there will be no more sin, sinful world, sinful self, or tempting Satan - but there they shall be conquerers through Him who eternally loved them.


In heaven, God's children will cast their crowns at the feet of their Savior, worshipping Him and saying, "Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto Him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever" (Rev. 5:13b).


Which king are you serving - God or Satan? The king we serve now, will also be our king eternally!

 

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

- Ephesians 6:11-12

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerers through Him that loved us.

- Romans 8:37
