Overcome

John 16:33: NKJV: These things I have spoken to you, that in ME you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulations, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.

 

The Messiah, Christ Jesus proved people can overcome the world in perfection. The proof was teaching to perceive and perform the word of God and HIS righteousness (Genesis 15:6, Psalm 32:2, Matthew 6:33). For more than three years, the Son of Man (Messiah) overcame and taught people to overcome the evil of Satan. Four days after creation (4,000 years, 2 Peter 3:8), Christ overcame to give the Holy blood of God to wash away past sin.

 

The blood of animals pointed to the blood and death to the Holy Lamb from God. Christ, born of God, set the example when resurrected to life as a righteous man to live forever. * Genesis 14:18: Then Melchizedek king of Salem (peace) brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High (Psalm 110:4, Hebrews 7:1-10). * As priest of God Most High, Melchizedek blessed Abram, renamed Abraham. Melchizedek gave bread and wine as refreshment. As the Son of Man conceived of God, Jesus became priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek. Therefore, we must surrender our wickedness to God. The priest (teacher) of God Most High became the eternal truth of the law of God forever and forever.  As the Son of Man a change in the law to eliminate animals is required because Jesus Christ is the living eternal Lamb of God. * Psalm 110:4: The Lord has sworn and will not relent; YOU are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

 

Hebrews 6:1-3: Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this we will do if God permits. * Unfortunately, the principles with perfection and holiness cannot be received by most of the world. That is because in the Garden of Eden, the whole world became deceived by the deceitful god of hate, the devil.

 

Revelation 12:9: So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world, he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. * Therefore, the whole world is adversary to God with the principles of deceit. As adversary to God, most of mankind is imperfect, unholy and unrighteous. Many in the world think they have the Holy Spirit of God but in deceit they have the full spirit of the devil and his angels (demons). Only by being obedient like Christ can we overcome the wiles of the devil by the entire word of God. * James 4:7-8: Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and HE will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double minded.

 

 With human strength, it is not possible to become righteous to overcome the ungodly thoughts and ungodly actions of the world that lead to death. Yet, with sincere repentance begins the road to righteousness and life. The next step is to press on to overcome sin by baptism immersion. Without receiving the Holy Spirit with the lay on of hands from a Minister who has the Holy Spirit you revert to the parable of Christ in Matthew 13:20-21: But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; yet he has no root (power of Holy Spirit) in himself, but endures only for a little while. For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word immediately he stumbles.

 

In the Garden of Eden, the fruit of the tree of the spirit of Satan was eaten causing the promise of death. This tree of knowledge and human reasoning reflects the life of the father of liars. The tree reflects the world of the devil including strife, fornication, jealousy, discord, hate, greed and chaos. These sins are idolatry because each sin is worshiping the devil (read Colossians 3:5). * When the Eternal, the God of love returns to rescue the earth, the tree of life will be established once more.

 

Revelation 22:2-3-4: In the middle of its’ street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there will be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and HIS servants shall serve HIM.

 

The tree of life reflects the Holy Spirit of God. The Spirit of God produces eternal peace, love, joy, goodness happiness, unity and faith to overcome the devil before the evil one is chained for a thousand years. In the kingdom come, only those that possess the Holy Spirit of God will have access to the tree of life.

 

Without the power of the Holy Spirit, the world remains a stony place with no root for the power of the Holy Spirit to help overcome the evils of the world. The elect of God keep the eternal commandments of God in Deuteronomy, chapter 5, and Leviticus, chapter 23. In addition, the elect desires leadership wherever the Holy Spirit of God leads them. Unfortunately, the entire world often listens to their inner mind that is easily persuaded by the evil spirit of the devil.

 

Galatians 1:6-8: I marvel that you are turning away so soon from HIM who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel (only one) of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. * When evil enters your mind, draw near to God in prayer with a true heart. HE will draw near to you (read Hebrews 10:22).

 

Be blessed until we meet again.
