“I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. You will have suffering in this world. Be courageous! I have conquered the world.” John 16:33
Jesus was telling His disciples that He would be leaving them and going back to Father God, but He would be sending them an Advocate, a Counselor who would teach and guide them into all the TRUTH. This was hard for the disciples to comprehend, but Jesus continued to instruct them as to what they would encounter and He spoke plainly, not using any figurative language. Then the disciples began to understand and believe what He was telling them. Jesus told them these things so that they might have PEACE. He told them they would have suffering in this world, but they were to be COURAGEOUS! Because He has CONQUERED the world.
We live in a very corrupt, depraved, sinful world. For the TRUE believer it is a monumental task to be IN the world, but NOT OF the world. That is why we have the Holy Spirit indwelling us. He will GUIDE us and LEAD us down the RIGHT path, IF we are SENSITIVE, SUBMISSIVE and OBEDIENT to Him. The problem is we are not always SENSITIVE, SUBMISSIVE, or OBEDIENT to Him, and end up on the WRONG path, encountering a lot of problems.
So we NEED to make ourselves SENSITIVE, SUBMISSIVE and OBEDIENT TO Him. When we ALLOW Him to be in control of us, we can BE COURAGEOUS! And we can TRUST Christ Jesus, and have PEACE, because He HAS CONQUERED this old, sinful, depraved and corrupt world.
If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are on the WRONG path, which leads to a spiritual death, torment, torture, pain and agony for all eternity in Hell. You do not have the proper COULSELOR and GUIDE to lead you to ALL TRUTH. But you are NOW given the opportunity to turn your life around, get on the RIGHT path, FOLLOW the GUIDANCE and LEADERSHIP of God’s Holy Spirit and BE COURAGEOUS! Because Christ has overcome the world. Come to Him with a TRULY REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and have the PEACE that passes ALL understanding, that can ONLY come from Jesus Christ, who is the VICTOR and has CONQUERED the world. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
