I John 5:4,5 "For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith. Who is it that is victorious over (that conquers) the world but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God (who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on that fact)?"
What a powerful statement! What a powerful truth! When we confess Jesus as the Son of God and receive of His glorious salvation, we become born-again children of the same Father, partakers of His Kingdom, inheriting everything in equal proportion to Jesus. This is victory over the world – our faith in Jesus. Born of God into a position that has already obtained victory. And all that we need to do is believe it and appropriate it into our thought system.
The word 'faith' used here, the faith that has conquered the world, means belief in what Jesus has done and who He has made us when we accepted Him as our Savior. He has given us faith. He is the author and the finisher of our faith. He has given us all the power we need to move every mountain, with this faith. God is pleased when we use our faith to move mountains.
He has already transferred us out of the kingdom of darkness of this present world and He has already transferred us into the Kingdom of the Son of His Love. We are not waiting to get there. We are not trying to arrive. Jesus did it for us – brought us into our new kingdom home. We adhere to, trust in and rely on that fact! This is the victory that conquers the world – our faith in the reality of this present fact. The world is conquered by Jesus. Everything therefore that we do and say, must be from our new position of being seated with Him in heavenly places. If I try to exert my God given authority from the lowly position of a mere human, I will not be using the Kingdom of God principle of faith. If I believe what God says about me, then I place myself next to Jesus in heavenly places where I rule and reign over these world systems, seated with Him.
We have all the power we need. We have all the help we need. We have all the resources that we need. We have all the Spirit of God that we need. We are born of God and that has already given us victory over the world. Our faith in God and that what He has said to us in the written Word is true, is world victory faith. We believe that Jesus didn't just come to save us from hell, but that His salvation includes salvation from the world and its limited systems now.
We believe that Jesus is the Son of God. Believe that you are the son of God also. Then adhere to this truth. Trust in this truth and rely on this fact. We do not fight battles with the limits of mere human knowledge, ability, resource or power. Our Father has already given us the victory over this world and this is the victory: our believing who we are in Him.
May you take these words to heart and meditate on them, searching the scriptures to judge the truths herein, allowing the Holy Spirit to work truth in you, to the renewing of your mind. Find rest for your soul. Have a light and easy week as you accomplish great things for His Kingdom!
