THE VICTORY THAT OVERCOMES THE WORLD!!!
“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world: your faith.”
– 1 John 5:4
As we round off this series, I want to pick on two more principles, but these two last principles are very special because they are all encompassing of a victorious christian life.
As a child, my siblings and I indulged in a lot of electronic games. At a time Nintendo was the in-thing but we could not afford it so we bought Sega. There was a particular game we played called Contra. A war game that had soldiers go on a long mission close to 12 stages, (If you play games, you know what I mean).
The soldier goes on the mission and as he proceeds, he receives all sorts of bonuses that enhances his weapon. There is a particular bonus called “spreader,” once the soldier gets the spreader, everything insight is gone no matter where he aims. Consider today’s principle, the verse above as “the spreader.”
(Laughs) Just remembering the spreader and comparing it with 1 John 5:4 makes me giggle. It says “whatsoever,” that means anything and anyone which also includes yourself and this verse… (I don’t know if you understand that). That means the understanding and the application of this verse is so powerful that it gives an encompassing victory in one’s life, no matter what the situation is. I am only providing basis on this blog, it is your duty to go deeper into the application… I beseech you to please do.
The bible says the just shall live by faith.
the verse above says faith is the victory that overcomes the world as long as it is faith in God.
The same bible in 1 Corinthians 15:57 says: “but thanks be to the Lord God who gives us victory through Christ Jesus.
Jesus, the first son brought victory to us through His victory on the cross.
This means that since Jesus succeeded, we have (not “we will”), we have succeeded already if we have faith in him! Wow!
This is not just a counter attack weapon like the others we’ve shared, this is a basis for the christian living. This is the password to a victorious life in Christ. Embed this word in your heart, I can bet you that your life CANNOT remain the same!
