Beloved, believers like you are always excited about the several names of God the Father, which have deep and significant meaning to them.
These names of God were the sources of unusual victories saints of old had as they overcame their adversaries in battles.
Think of inexplanable victory of Israel when Pharaoh and the mighty armies of Egypt were drown at the Red Sea.  See some of these names.
1. Lord of hosts.

Psa 24:10  Who is this King of glory?The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

2. Man of war.

Exodus 15:3  The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name.

3.  Jehovah nissi

Exo 17:15  And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi:

Beloved these names of God or that of Jesus are the guarantee for saints and believers of all ages and you in particular, that ,they shall always overcome  in battles against their enemies, no matter how strong they are.
This is good news for you never  ever  to cow before any enemy or enemies, because you shall always overcome them through the invincible power of your heavenly Father. See one of  God’s unfailing promises on this.

1 John 4:4  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world

Beloved never ever forget that no matter how strong your adversaries are , this  promise guarantee your definite victory.
You can recount in Bible days the victories of Israel at the Red Sea. The victory of David against Goliath.
The victory of Judah when one angel killed over the night the one hundred and eighty five thousand soldiers of Assyria king Senacherib.
Think of the defeat of three great nations that came against Jehoshaphat and Judah who were defeated without them shooting an arrow but just praising God.
How then can you know all of these and be thinking of defeat, when God that gave them those victories is your own Father in heaven and has never changed.

Malachi 3:6  For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Beloved, are you presently contending with strong human or spirit beings, be sure your victory is guaranteed through the invincible power of your Father in heaven.

Jeremiah 31:11  For the Lord hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he.

Don’t forget no weapon formed against the shall prosper.

Isaiah 54:17   No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.

Remember, however your own weapons are so potent and will bring down every enemies, even satan under your feet..

Luke 10:19  Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you

Romans 16:20  And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

2Co 10:3 — 5  For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Beloved in your battles God has told you never ever to be afraid of the gathering together or the confederacy of enemies against you.

Isa 8:9 — Isa 8:13   Associate   yourselves, O ye people, and ye shall be broken in pieces; and give ear, all ye of far countries: gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in pieces; gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in pieces.  Take counsel together, and it shall come to nought; speak the word, and it shall not stand: for God is with us. For the Lord spake thus to me with a strong hand, and  instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying,  Say ye not, A confederacy,to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid. Sanctify the Lord of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.

Beloved God says in the Bible that  though your enemies have iron chariots, and though they be stronger than you, they shall still be defeated by you through His unfailing, invincible power.
See it yourself.

Joshua 17:18  But the mountain shall be thine; for it is a wood, and thou shalt cut it down: and the outgoings of it shall be thine: for thou shalt drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron chariots, and though they be strong.

See how God Himself assured His saints of all ages and you in particular of assured and guaranteed victory over your strong enemies.

Deuteronomy 2:24  Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon: behold, I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess it, and contend with him in battle.

Joshua 1:5   There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Joshua 1:9  Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Exo 23:27 — 28  I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thine enemies turn their backs unto thee. And I will send hornets before thee, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee.

Exo 14:13 — 14  And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

Beloved, see the impact of these promises in the lives of saints of old and now a guarantee for you now.
1. The drowning of the strong armies and chariots of Pharoah and  Egypt.

Exo 14:28 — 31  And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them. But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. Thus the Lord saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore. And Israel saw that great work which the Lord did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the Lord, and believed the Lord, and his servant Moses.

2. The killing of one hundred and eighty five thousand armies of Assyria against king Hezekiah.

2Ki 19:35  And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the Lord went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

3. The total killing of all the armies of the three nations that came against Jehoshaphat and Judah without them shooting an arrow but just praising God .

2Ch 20:22 — 24  And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another. And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped.

Now your own victory in battles is for ever guaranteed. This is because you have overcome them. Hallelujah.

1 John 4:4  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world

Dearly beloved, it is true that our Lord was the Lamb of God that had taken away the sins of the whole world. Even your own sins in particular. Hallelujah.

Jn 1:29  The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

In the same token, He is the unconquerable Lion of the tribe of Judah.

Rev 5:5  And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

He is the captain of the hosts of the Lord. 

Joshua 5:14  And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the Lord am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant?

He is the Lord of hosts that will open every satanic gates against His people. 

Psa 24:9 — Psa 24:10  Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

He is the only one that has the keys of hell and death and can deliver His followers from every untimely death.  Like He delivered Peter before king Herod could kill him.
Be rest assured you and your family are secured from every untimely death in Jesus name.

Rev 1:17 — Rev 1:18  And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Dearly beloved it is this same Jesus that is the same for ever that is assuring you of victory over all your adversaries as long you are on this side of heaven.

1 John 4:4  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world

Hebrews 13:8  Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

The Lord said to you in particular never ever to  manifest fear or be terrified by any adversary, even satan himself.

2 Timothy 1:7  For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Phi 1:28  And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.

However, there is a proviso on this.  Biblical believers are the only ones guaranteed from all satanic attacks. Empty professors of religion and nominal churchgoers are not covered or included in this.
Believers that are committing secret sins or compromising are not included. Such shall always be overcome by the devil. You shall not be overcome , but make sure you are a standing believer.
I am persuaded you are. But then see what the devil will always do with empty professors.

Act 19:13 — Act 19:16  Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

Dearly beloved, but for you a biblical believer, you have at your disposal many weapons of warfare that shall defeat satan and his cohorts anytime and every time. See what the Bible says.

2Co 10:3 — 5  For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

These weapons are many:
THE NAME OF JESUS.

Phi 2:9 — 11  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

 
THE BLOOD OF JESUS.

Revelation 12:11  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

OTHERS ARE  ; FASTING AND PRAYERS, THE WORD OF GOD, PRAISING GOD , LIKE  PAUL AND SILAS DID. See it yourself

Act 16:25 — 26 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.

OR CORPORATE OR JOINT PRAYERS  AS JESUS TAUGHT. THE ONE THAT WAS USED TO SAVE PETER BEFORE  KING HEROD COULD KILL HIM.

Matthew 18:19  Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

Act 12:1 — 11  Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. And he killed James the brother of John with the sword. And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.) And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people. Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him. And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison. And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me. And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision. When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him. And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.

Always remember,  you in particular have overcome every battles you shall ever fight till you see Jesus. Hallelujah. It shall be so for you in Jesus name.

1 John 4:4  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world

Friend, it is true that as the rapture is dawning, perilous time, meaning troublous time, shall be the order of the day.
However, biblical believers like you shall be victors and unconquerable.
This is because you have this unfailing promise that guarantees your overcoming till Christ comes. See it yourself.

1 John 4:4  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world

Friend the reason for this is because Jesus that is coming to take us during the imminent event is the unconquerable Lion of tribe of Judah fighting for you.

Rev 5:5  And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

He has also given you assurance to abide with you till He comes and to ensure you are victorious.
And you shall be in Jesus name. See the unfailing promises. Believe them ,they shall avail for you in particular in Jesus name.

Matthew 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

2 Corinthians 1:10  Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;

Heb 13:5 — 6  Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

2 Timothy 4:18  And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

John 5:4  For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

Romans 8:37  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

1 Corinthians 15:57  But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 2:14  Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
