OVERCOMING BY KNOWING WHO YOU ARE Part 1.
The Devil is the God of this world..Do you believe this,...2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the ligh
How can we overcome?
What is it must we overcome?
We were all born into a world that was prepared for us by God the father in such a way that was specifically design for the life of mankind. Earth was place in the ideal position in the universe. It's geographical location is ideal for human survival, had it been any closer to the sun life here would not have been possible. God created a perfect earth and the devil sinned and corrupts this beautiful world and makes it into a battle ground. We are well aware of “The Genesis Chronicle” Now mankind struggles for survival and now have many hurdles to overcome. God promises us if we choose His way of life and overcome this world and Satan devices he will allow us into His Kingdom. Whether or not we accept this mankind faces tribulation here and now on what were supposed to have been a God given earth.
Who or what polluted this earth?
There is nothing new under the sun and the bible holds the answer. God gave the keys to mankind when he gave the keys to Peter.
They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; :
38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
:39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:
:40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.
Paul along with the apostles, and the early church had it share of obstacles which they did overcome.
2Co 8:2 How that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality.
1Pe 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
1Pe 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
Rom 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
At all times we should remember who we are and stand up for what we believe in.
1.We must know what we are about.
2.We must learn about Satan devices, Satan's Principles of Temptation
2Co 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
Satan knows our personality and this he use against us, he knows our needs and wants so he will fulfill them if we allow him.
1John 2:13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.
14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.
:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
We talk about the pleasures of this world,that we think is so hard to let go of. Things that are so dear to our heart, like car, house, children, money and sex. these are things we go the extra mile to achieve. What about eternal life free from all pain, sorrow,sickness,evil etc. The apostles and the early believers gave their lives for the promise of eternal life and the children of this world continues to give their lives for unto vanity.
We must love Christianity more than all these. We must be in love with God even more than when a man and woman are in love.
