PostSubject: Greater Is He Who Is In You   Sun Jul 20, 2014 1:37 pm

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1 JOHN 4:4

As true followers of Jesus Christ, we have already "overcome" false spirits and false prophets because our God who reigns in our hearts is far greater than Satan, the father of the lies of this world. The Spirit of Christ in us is constantly overcoming the spirit of the Anti-Christ. Sometimes it is hard to imagine that all of this spiritual warfare is happening, especially on days and at times when things seem to be going well for us.

But even a moment's glance into the evil and sin surrounding us can bring us back to reality. The lies can be obvious or camouflaged! Perhaps there's a religious group twisting Scripture, trying to convince us to worship false gods or that we can earn our salvation by being good people. Or maybe it's the draw of Hollywood enticing us to live for today and that our own beauty, personal success and material possessions will fulfill us and make us happy. Even direct Satanic lies from the pit of hell could be convincing us that there is no God, the earth came from a big bang and we are products of Darwin's theory of evolution. We can overcome the lies of the false teachers in this world by affirming the truth of Bible Scripture.

In the Epistle of 1 John, John's targeted audience was believers in the early Christian Church. He gave them a general purpose (to increase mutual joy). These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life,and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God. 1 John 5:13. He also gave them a specific purpose as well (to provide tests by which they might assure themselves of their salvation). This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world. 1 John 4:2-3   

INSIGHT: The truth of God defeats the lies of Satan. The good news of Jesus Christ defeats the bad news of the Anti-Christ.

Dear Lord, Thank you for these these things written by the Apostle John. Please give me the desire to read the Epistle of 1 John for myself, so that my joy will increase and so I can test the assurance of my salvation as well. I want to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that He who is in me is greater than he who is in the world. In Jesus' Name, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:11-12 cheers
