“Victory That Overcomes the World”
For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome. For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world---our faith. 1 John 5:3-4
The one who believes in the Lord Jesus Christ, and has come to Him with a desire to be saved from their sins, is BORN of GOD. When we LOVE God and observe His commandments, we can KNOW that the LOVE of God is in us, and we can TRULY LOVE the children born of Him.
For the LOVE of God is that we KEEP His commandments; and His commandments are NOT burdensome to us, because the principle of victory is in EVERY TRUE BELIEVER. EVERY TRUE BELIEVER will desire to KEEP God’s commandments, because of their LOVE for God and His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Now, just how is that VICTORY carried out? When a person comes to God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, SEEKING God’s FORGIVENESS, and BELIEVING with ALL their HEART, that Jesus died for them, then they are VICTORIOUS over this wretched, old, sinful world and its leader, Satan, by their FAITH. Their FAITH is their weapon against the wickedness of a lost and dying world and thus they are able to OVERCOME THE WORLD. And obtain ETERNAL LIFE in Heaven.
However, if you do NOT come to God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, SEEKING His FORGIVENESS, and BELIEVEING with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, You are NOT VICTORIOUS over this wretched, old sinful world and Satan, but instead you will remain a part of it and will spend an ETERNITY in HELL, the place of ETERNAL torment, torture, pain, agony, and despair, with NO WAY of ESCAPE. So if you want to change your direction you MUST COME to God with a TRUR REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to God, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become a Child of the Living God, and let your FAITH become the VICTORY that OVERCOMES the world. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
