MORNINGTIME 2172
 
For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 1 John 5:4-5. "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world" PERIOD. This is not a comment, a could be, or even an opinion, this is Christ talking, telling us that those who are His, ARE WORLD OVERCOMERS. Christians make it a practice to keep learning to overcome the world and the worldliness that is generally trying to invade the church, and its people. Christians recognize the "worldliness invasion" sneaking into the "church", AND DEAL WITH IT EVERYDAY, contending with the Enemy at every turn as Christ not only helps the Believer hold the line and not be overcome BY worldliness, BUT HELPS THE BELIEVER OVERCOME WORLDLINESS AND GROW IN HOLINESS, RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND PURITY.  The goats in church who think they are Christians, not only DON'T see the worldliness moving into their lives and church, they don't pay it any attention because whatever they do see, it's perfectly normal to them, with no need to change ANYTHING. Worldly people in church don't see it because it's normal to them. Like trying to tell a fish that he's all wet. If you live in a cave all your life, dealing with darkness is normal, and bright light is something to run from. But for a Believer who WAS used to darkness, when a light shines near them, IT'S SOMETHING THEY RUN TO, as they learn to leave the old ways of darkness and worldliness. Does a naturally bright light hurt your eyes? Yes, and the normal response is to close your eyes to the light. But the Believer will push past the normal and walk towards the super natural and slowly open their eyes as their eyes more and more ADJUST to the new found Light. The Light reveals filth on the Believer, and he quickly goes about cleaning it off him, AND NOT GOING BACK TO THE PLACES WHERE FILTH COMES FROM. That's how you can, Be Blessed.
