More Than Conquerors
The history of humanity has been little more than the relatively strong conquering the less strong (strength is relative - an army of 1,000 against an army of 100 has the same 10 to 1 "superiority" as an army of 1,000,000 against an army of 100,000). Empires were, and are, based on the principle that bigger is always "right," regardless of how evil (in outcome, if not original intent) they may actually be. From the perspective of Bible History, the cycle of rise and inevitable fall was endlessly repeated by the Assyrians (see Ancient Empires - Assyria), the Babylonians (see Ancient Empires - Babylon), the Persians (see Ancient Empires - Persia), the Greeks (see Ancient Empires - Greece) and the Romans (see Ancient Empires - Rome).
"In all these things we are more than conquerors"
The true Gospel is about the coming Kingdom of God. From the day of Christ's return (see When Will You Be Judged? and Could Christ Return Tonight?), all human political systems will be eliminated, either by their surrender or annihilation (see the Fact Finder question below) and replaced with the rule of the Messiah. The difference between Christ's coming to rule, and man's arrogant and destructive invasion and misrule of other nations, is that Christ's "invasion" will bring true freedom and everlasting peace - something that hypocritical humans are not capable of doing. God's changed-to-spirit people will thereafter however be more than mere human conquerers; they will be actual family of the only nation on earth. There will be nothing "foreign" to invade.
"8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
