Topic: JESUS IS OUR FAITH
📖33….”These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
1 John 5:4
📖4….”For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”
🔥To overcome the world system today, is to embrace him that first overcame the world. That person is Jesus Christ…John 16:33. He was the first to be born by God, according to John 3:16 (God’s only begotten Son). Once we accept Jesus, he becomes faith in us. Through him in us, we also have victory like him, because he is in us. After the created man fell in Eden, God in his restoration message, told the serpent that this woman you deceived, will have your head bruised by her seed – Gen 3:15. Since then, every human on earth, has been waiting for the manifestation of that seed…Romans 8:19. Balaam even prophesied in Num 23:21, that there was the shout of a king amongst them.
🔥🔥Because of Genesis 3:15, every Jew had hoped for who or what that seed would be. Now, according to Hebrews 11:1, faith is the substance of things hoped for. Since the only substance hoped for is faith, and the only physical thing that has shown up as the fulfilment of our faith is Jesus, then Jesus is the hoped for substance. The hope was on the substance that would bruise the serpent’s head. That hope came alive in Jesus. That is why 1 John 5:4 says that Jesus is the faith, that has overcome the world (John 16:33). This makes Jesus as the victory that has overcome the world in us.
🔥🔥🔥Beloveth, faith is the indwelling Jesus Christ in us. No wonder it is difficult to have faith. Since Jesus doesn’t live in a dirty place. If your heart is not clean, he won’t come in – Rev 3:20. If God finds His Christ living in you, you become glorified – Colossians 1:27. Keep your heart clean, for Jesus to live in you as your Faith.
🙏Heavenly father, by your mercies , I ask for your Son as my faith, to dwell in me, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Oh Lord, accept my heart as your Son’s dwelling place to enable the issues of my life to be kept safe, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Lord Jesus, you are my victory. Keep dwelling in me, so I keep celebrating you in me forever.
