I am a born again child of the living God : He is my heavenly Father : Though Faith I stand : I must act on that Faith that God has given to me otherwise I will not overcome the world : Be of Good courage : God will strengthen your heart : I have the victory , even when I don't look or feel like it as long as I walk by Faith : Faith pleases God : When His children are walking in Faith : HE RESPONDS !!!! Victory !!!

The analyses mentioned are very good but none speak about the wording of the passage, in particular the use of the word 'whatsoever' which denotes anything ranging from human beings to animals. Could someone shed a little light on the usage of the word please?

 

Bill's comment on 2014-11-29 00:33:56:

Hiebert says, The new birth gives the believer the potential of victory, but the realization of actual victory depends on our active exercise of faith. 1 Every born again believer has the provision to be an overcomer, but he must choose to appropriate the provision in order to be victorious. Overcomer is not a status automatically conferred upon all children of God. John is certainly not suggesting that all believers are overcomers and, therefore, worthy of receiving the rewards promised in Revelation. On the contrary, he is saying that all believers have equal opportunity to be victorious because of the new birth.

God Has Given Us All Power To Overcome The Worldly Desires Every Circumstance That Comes Our Way By Faith.

Anyone who is born of God is an overcomer. Whatever comes in our way we are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus who is an author and finisher of our faith.

I think that it says whosoever has accepted Christ Jesus as HIS Lord as Saviour (born of God) is a victor in all situtions. The only thing he/she needs is faith in Christ.

He that believeth to the end the same shall be saved. Work out your own soul salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God in you both to will of do of his good pleasure,... that we be conformed to the image of Christ...the end of faith!!! This is the victory that overcomes the world, the flesh, and the devil...AMEN!!! REV.12:11.

This means Anythin that has its origin in God certainly, constantly and consistently triumph, prevail and subdues the world
