"The Overcomer"


“The Overcomer”


“I have said these things to you, that in Me you may have peace.  In the world you will have tribulation.  But take heart; I have overcome the world.”    John 16:33


These are the words of the Lord Jesus to His disciples, just prior to His crucifixion.  His message to them and to the TRUE BELIEVER, today, is:  that we can have PEACE, amidst a world of TRIBULATION.  TRIBULATION a word used to describe severe suffering or trouble.  Which we ALL, right now, know a little about. 


But in this WORLD of TRIBULATON, we NEED to TAKE HEART or have COURAGE, because JESUS CHRIST has OVERCOME the world.  So, how can we be COURAGEOUS and become an OVERCOMER also?  1 John 5:4 tells us: For everyone who has been born of God OVERCOMES the world.  And this is the VICTORY that has OVERCOME the world---OUR FAITH. Verse five tells us that the one who OVERCOMES the world is the one who BELIEVES that JESUS is the Son of God.   Those who BELIEVE and ACCEPTS JESUS into their HEARTS and LIVES, through the HOLY SPIRIT, which indwells them, will have living in them, the ONE who is GREATER than the one who is in the world.  And they can become OVERCOMERS by their FAITH in Him. 


If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are living a DEFEATED life.  A life that is destined for an ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE.  However, God in His GREAT LOVE and ABUNDANT MERCY, and His AMAZING GRACE, has a plan for you to be DELIVERED from that DESTINY.  You MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and to TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS.  BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and put your FAITH and TRUST in Him, and you can become an OVERCOMER too.  And you can have the ASSURANCE of an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS.  So, do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

Mood: hopeful
