1 John · Exegesis of Light

numbered among the over-comers in Christ!

Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? – 1 John 5:5

The over-comer is the new man in Christ. He is the man born of God, filled with His life and participator in expression, of His righteousness and Love. The new man in Christ is placed on the higher ground of advantage because He is seated together with the firstborn, the Lord Jesus Christ.

This new man is the Over-comer of the world. He has been delivered from the realm of victim-hood and placed in the victory filled arena of God’s Grace. He has been given authority in the name of Jesus to trample upon snakes and scorpions and every instrument of darkness. He has been given the heavenly companions of joy and peace to garrison his heart always; therefore, the revealed arm of darkness does not move him. Fear does not move him. For of all the throngs that make the armies of Lucifer, his heart rests in Christ…with the words “none of these things move me”…with the words “I am more than Conqueror!” Glory!

Beloved in Christ, let us thank God always that we are numbered among the over-comers!

And if we should see a brother or sister speaking words that tell he/she has forgotten this, let us be the vessel that ministers the lifting power of truth!

For I am confident, that we who are numbered among the over-comers in Christ…in this generation;shall not fail to fulfill the myriad purposes of God. We shall not sleep or slumber at the task to which the Holy Spirit helps and stirs us up to action.

In the name of Jesus!

Let the over-comers in Christ shout Amen!

Glory to God!
