Heroes of Faith Always Prevail in the Faith of Death, Darkness and Hell

Heroes of Faith Always Prevail In the Face of Death Hell and Darkness
As I alluded to in my last article, “True Biblical Stories of Old and New Testament Heroes of Faith,” at the beginning of any story we usually stumble upon the “soon to be heroes” that believed that they lack the strength and tenacity in their in their own character and being!
These are often insecure, broken, ill equipped and full of self-doubt. They do not believe that they have what it takes to face battles; in fact they openly verbalize that, ‘I don’t have what it takes to do this!’ The only difference between a villain and a hero is the reaction to the pain that they carry; the Hero says, ‘I am going to stop anybody else from experiencing what I have experienced,” while the villain says, ‘I am going to take down the righteous, and raise up the wicked to the place of absolute power!”
The Bible is filled with accounts of Zeroes and Heroes. As we move into the biblical accounts of their stories, we will begin to realize that it was not their power, nor they’re might that transformed the entire spiritual make-up. Zeroes can ultimately be transformed from Zeroes to Heroes, to the point that they will prevail with great brilliance on the battlefield!
Beyond these, the Bible is filled to overflowing with the accounts of heroes, zeroes, and villains, that we can now take advantage as we study them and to learn from their victories and their defeats, whether they are Zeroes or Heroes!
