Who is born of God?
"Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him." 1 John 5:1.
- Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and
- every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him, and
- And all who love the Father love his children too.
Who is born of God? He who loves God, loves Jesus, loves God’s people and keeps his commandments.
Who is he that overcometh the world?
- he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God.
- everyone who obeys him, overcometh the world: by faith.
Who is he that overcometh the world? He with the witness of God in him: that Jesus is truly the Son of God, we know he is, because God said so, And the Holy Spirit, and the Word.
"For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one." 1 John 5:7-8.
For this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: the record that God gave of his Son,
"And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." 1 John 5:11-13.
1 John 5:19-21 says,
"And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen."
An idol, is anything that may take God’s place in your heart.
But Christ came, to help us understand and find the true God, and now we are in God because of him.
