Choose To Have A Victorious Life
“Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God… For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?” (1 John 5: 1a, 4 – 5).
This is then the litmus test, that everyone that is born of God overcomes the world.
Have you overcome your world? Can you really overcome your world without being endued with the Holy Spirit and power as the Lord instructed us in Luke 24: 49? If it was possible to do so without the Holy Spirit and power, then, everyone including unbelievers will all become overcomers of this world. But not so easy.
Victorious life is only for those who are born of God. For everyone born of God is anointed for victory through faith in the Anointed One (-the Lord Jesus) and His anointing that He has graciously endued upon you. Glory to Jesus!
Always remember this: our victory is by faith in Christ Jesus and His anointing, for it is written, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4: 4). Our victory is over all manner of satanic spirits that are causing problems to the world, such as sickness, affliction, poverty, depression, divorce, family unrest and many more. We have overcome them all because we are born of God and Christ (- the Anointed and the Greater One) is in us. Praise God!
Most times, to receive this heavenly evidence of being declared as a son of God requires waiting – waiting is normal as the Lord Jesus instructed us in Luke 24: 49; it is not a denial. The fast food Christianity of not having time to wait on the Lord to get endued with the Holy Spirit and power is weakening believers, robbing them of victories and successes and many times, killing them.
Sweet heart, remove yourself from that deception before you die young as a defeated folk. This is my divinely inspired counsel for all that I love in Christ Jesus, and you are one of them.
Do you know that He, the Anointed One, the Lord Jesus Christ, is yearning to graciously endue you with His Spirit and power? And that is when you are ready, firstly, to be born again and then to walk more closely with Him. Glory to Jesus!
Now, if you are born of God and you know it, shout “Praise the Lord!”. If you are not, continue in the word, do not get discouraged nor be offended by this truth, for very soon, you shall be endued with power from on high, for the Lord had said to those who believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8: 31 – 32). To be continued…
Always remember, for a supernatural life in Christ, the Master’s command is, “You must be born again!” (John 3: 7).
