The Greatest Victory

If you’ve followed this blog for a little while or, perhaps, for very long,
you’ve found that victory and the miraculous are themes on it that are strong.

But, as in the lives of others, there’ve been times when I’ve been thrown off–
when victory seemed to have passed by, and the devil was quick to scoff.

A particular area that’s rough is when someone dies despite the healing goal.
But, for those who’ve received the Lord, they had THE GREATEST VICTORY, of the soul.

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of any one of his dear saints.
Remember that with great, great joy, despite the “defeat” that the devil paints.

For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his own soul?
He who’s found his place in the family of God is, indeed, made perfectly whole.

That doesn’t mean we stop using our authority to see miracles come to pass;
but we rejoice that those who’ve gone to be with Christ have actually moved to the head of the class.

P. A. Oltrogge

“…having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better.”  …from Philippians 1:23
