Topic: VICTORY THROUGH FAITH.
Text: 1 John 5:4,5.
4: For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
5: Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
From our passage we got the statement ‘ overcomes the world ‘, the world seems to mean something evil, the New Living Translation qualifies the world with the word ‘ evil ‘, look at it here: For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. Job speaking in Job 14:1 said; Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble.
The question you will want to ask is that, why is this world evil? Revelation 2:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. The reason is because the devil is permitted to live on Earth till the judgement day, but despite this fact, there is provision for Victory
Devil is the mastermind of all challenges and difficulties, all sicknesses and diseases, all discouragements and discomfort in the earth, but some people have power to be victorious, and they described in 1 John 5:5 And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God. NLT.
* Believing that Jesus is the son of God delivers your mandate for victory.
* Accepting the salvation that comes through Jesus is receiving this package of victory.
1 John 5:4 tells us how this victory comes;…and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Faith is the victory, your faith amidst battles, challenges, in times of sickness, lack, displeasure, discomfort, trouble, loneliness, weakness, rejection, confusion. Faith is simply put as expectation, let me put it this way; what do you expect when things are not going on well? Are you thinking of the best or the worst? Are you thinking of going down or going up? Are you thinking that things will get better or get worst? That is the point where the line of victory is drawn.
Just 4 points worthy of note.
1, Believing that Jesus is the son of God, not one of the Prophets,
2, Believing that Jesus died for your sin and rose again on the third day.
3, Bellieving and Receiving him as your Lord and saviour.
4, Believing that he will take you through life triumphantly.
In the 4 points above note the word, ‘ believing ‘, that is the faith that delivers your victory at every point of challenge. Believing is winning, believing what God says about your life, not what you are seeing right now. If you are sick believe that you will be healed, if you are poor believe that you will be rich. Believing against every odd around your life and family. God bless you.
* As we wait upon the Lord, express your beliefs in the place of prayer.
