I John 5:4-5 – For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
Ever wonder about things going on today? I do.
America and the world are coming together, and we are headed to a one world government. As unwelcome as that may be, we as believers know that this is all foretold in the Bible. The world will gather around one leader, the anti-Christ. It almost seems like there are world leaders today who are “applying” for that position. No worries. God is still in control, and He has promised that we have the victory. We won! The devil is defeated, so do not lose hope. Instead, rejoice. So, exactly what does it mean to have total victory?
It is based in the fact that Jesus knows me.
John 10:27-30- My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.30 I and my Father are one.
It is based on the fact that my faith is in Jesus.His death, burial, and resurrection
John 3:16-18;36 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God., 36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
(NEXT WEEK WE WILL BEGIN A STUDY IN JOHN 3)
It is based in on the fact that God’s word is eternal, inerrant, infallible, and preserved.

It is Based on the Fact that Jesus is Coming Again
Acts 1:9-11 – And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.–
John 14:1-3;27 – Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
