Revelation 11:15 (NLT) - 15 Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices shouting in heaven: “The world has now become the Kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign forever and ever.”

1. Conquest has a message.

  1. Paul had a big mouth! He talked everywhere he went. 
  2. Paul’s message
    1. Resurrection is possible
    2. Redemption has come
    3. Repentance is necessary
    4. Return is imminent 
    5. Acts 20:21 (NLT) I have had one message for Jews and Greeks alike--the necessity of repenting from sin and turning to God, and of having faith in our Lord Jesus.
    6. Romans 1:16 (NLT) For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes--the Jew first and also the Gentile.
  3. You must open your mouth!!

2. Conquest has a manifestation.

  1. God never intended the gospel to work alone.
  2. We should fully expect God to work with us in signs and wonders.
  3. 1 Corinthians 2:4–5 (NASB95) — 4 and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.
  4. First the natural, then the spiritual.

3. Conquest has a mountain.

  1. You must be ready for the spiritual tug-of-war! 
  2. We are the announcers of that truth. 
  3. The mountains are spiritual rulers.
    1. Matthew 28:18 (NLT) — 18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth
  4. The mountains are human reasoning.
    1. 2 Corinthians 10:4–5 (NLT) — 4 We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. 5 We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.
