You are a child of God!

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith
1 John 5:4 KJV.

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.

  1. Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and 
  2. every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him, and 
  3. 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.

God bless,

The weapons of our warfare!

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong" 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 KJV

The weapons of our warfare are mighty through God, they are in the simplicity of Christ, in the fruit of the Spirit; "love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law" Galatians 5:22-23.

"If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities" 2 Corinthians 11:30. "So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye m…

Contend for the Faith!

You’re in Jesus Christ as God’s plan of salvation for you;
He called you, and you said yes in Jesus, wherein you are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved. In him is God’s mercy, and peace, and love multiplied towards you.
You are sanctified and preserved in Christ by God the Father, and not you alone, it’s a common salvation - it is the case throughout the world. The whole world is going after him. What happened to me happened also to you and to all who believe in God through Christ around the world.
Here is why God chose you, "that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" Jude 1:3.
We earnestly contend for the faith,  [or defend] the common salvation, that it remains the same as it was first delivered.
"For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ."…

Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts!

Pursue love for if you don't love, you’re nothing; love the brotherhood!

No matter what you say, what you believe, and what you do, you’re nothing without love.

" Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away" 1 Corinthians 13:8. Yes all these will someday come to an end, but love goes on forever, "And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity" 1 Corinthians 13:13.

If you didn’t love others, with all that you do, you would only be making noise.

"Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things" 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. With this we know we lov…
