1 John 5:5 (NIV)
“5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.”
Beloved, I pray you all have a very blessed thanksgiving! I thank God for you!!! Let us remember how great a testimony The Father declares over us as we place our faith in His Son! Let us give thanks now for the victorious journey (past, present, future) as we are destined to overcome the challenges in this world through Faith In Him.
1 John 5:1-12 (TPT)
The Proof of Love and the Victory of Faith
“5 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Messiah is God’s spiritual child and has been fathered by God himself. And everyone who loves Father God loves his children as well. 2 This is how we can be sure that we love the children of God: by having a passionate love for God and by obedience to his commands. 3 True love for God means obeying his commands, and his commands don’t weigh us down as heavy burdens.[a] 4 You see, every child of God overcomes[b] the world, for our faith is the victorious power that triumphs over the world. 5 So who are the world conquerors, defeating its power? Those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
The Spirit, the Water, and the Blood
6 Jesus Christ is the One who was revealed as God’s Son by his water baptism and by the blood of his cross—not by water only, but by water and blood.[c] And the Spirit, who is truth, confirms this with his testimony. 7 So we have these three constant witnesses giving their evidence:[d]8 the Spirit, the water, and the blood. And these three are in agreement. 9 If we accept the testimony of men, how much more should we accept the more authoritative testimony of God that he has testified concerning his Son?
10 Those who believe in the Son of God have the living testimony in their hearts. Those who don’t believe have made God out to be a liar by not believing the testimony God has confirmed about his Son. 11 This is the true testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life has its source in his Son.[e] 12 Whoever has the Son has eternal life; whoever does not have the Son does not possess eternal life.Read full chapter”
