Title

"WE WIN"

Medium/Genre

Spoken Word

Artist Statement

This spoken word depicts why we should never give up as Christians. We have come to the understanding that in spite of our situation there is a mighty God who is always fighting for us and with us. Our weapons are to be always sharpened. We are not to let our guard down because our weapons are not carnal but mighty. One of our goals in this spiritual battle is to pray that unbelievers to come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal savior. This spoken word was given by the Holy Spirit seeing that I have not written poetry for quite some time. It was just sidelined by life. For some reason the topic resonated with me and I felt lead by the Holy Spirit to start again. To start was the hardest, but once I felt the leading of the Holy Spirit the words began to flow and flow until the poem was over 7 minutes long. I had to cut it down and down to meet the time limit. I am very proud of what the Holy Spirit and I were able to accomplish in such a very short period of time. Yes, Jesus Christ has won!

How it fits into contest

I believe that God has given us the ultimate guide, The Holy Bible and by whatever means possible (listening audio, reading, memorizing, mediating and or studying) we need to get the word of God in our hearts so when the enemy comes and he will, we can use the right word at the right time that will pierce the darkness. (This can include a loss soul, a person struggling with forgiveness, those with addictions). As Christians are to pray and believe that they will come to the know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. We cant just look at their physical being, flesh and blood, but at the spirits that may be holding them in bondage. We must believe and pray that their souls can and will be saved.
