In good faith, Christians of all kinds put forth all sorts of positions on things such as the dating of the book and the nature of Christ’s millennial reign. Whatever position a person may take on these issues, it is clear that Revelation was written in order to encourage Christians to overcome the world.   Thankfully, “everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world.

But the question is how?. How exactly can we overcome the world? Thankfully the Bible, the living word of God, reveals how we can resist the strong pull of this world. In this blog post, let me share with you the little-known, but powerful ways for us to overcome the world.

  In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world ” (John ). We are only able to overcome the world because of the Spirit of God and because Jesus overcame the world for us since we could not by ourselves. We needed help just as the first disciples did.   The first qualification to overcoming the world is to be born of God. If you are a Christian in the biblical sense of the word, you qualify. You have what it takes to overcome the world. In an eternal sense, you already have overcome the world. Verse 5 makes that clear. Verse 4 uses some interesting wording. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith." 1 John , ESV: "For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith." 1 John , KJV: "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.". Jesus gave us a clue to how we can survive in this hostile world: “In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John ). In this scripture two things are certain. One of them is that there is tribulation in this world. We live in a fallen world where Satan is a god.
