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,

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server.You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server.But listen to this before you do;"Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her."" Luke 10:38-42.Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubled ab…

Spirits are subject to you!

In Luke 10, Jesus sends seventy others, two by two into every city and place where He Himself was about to go.He said to them go your way; "And heal the sick there, and say to them, 'The kingdom of God has come near to you.'’ Luke 10:9 They came back thrilled and excited. This is the same experience we should have when we give out the Word of God, and when we pray for the sick and heal them. How glorious we feel also when more labourers are come into His harvest!Luke said, "the seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name." And He said to them, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven." Luke 10:17-20.Satan’s new home is t…

Who’s the greatest?

In the early verses of this chapter, Jesus calls together the 12 disciples and sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. "...and He gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases" Luke 9:1. So they departed and went through the towns, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere. Afterwards, they returned happy, all amazed at the majesty of God. Then Jesus said to His disciples, "Let these words sink down into your ears, for the Son of Man is about to be betrayed into the hands of men." Luke 9:43-44. "Then a dispute arose among them as to which of them would be greatest. And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a little child and set him by Him, and said to them, "Whoever receives this little child in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me receives Him who sent Me. For he who is least among you all will be great." Luke 9:46-48.Then John interrupted, "Master, we saw someone casting out de…
