1John 5: 4-12

For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.

And Jesus Christ was revealed as God’s Son by his baptism in water and by shedding his blood on the cross—not by water only, but by water and blood. And the Spirit, who is truth, confirms it with his testimony. So we have these three witnesses— the Spirit, the water, and the blood—and all three agree. Since we believe human testimony, surely we can believe the greater testimony that comes from God. And God has testified about his Son. All who believe in the Son of God know in their hearts that this testimony is true. Those who don’t believe this are actually calling God a liar because they don’t believe what God has testified about his Son.

And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life.

Porque todo lo que es nacido de Dios vence al mundo. Y ésta es la victoria que ha vencido al mundo: nuestra fe.

¿Y quién es el que vence al mundo, sino el que cree que Jesús es el Hijo de Dios? Este es Aquél que vino mediante agua y sangre, Jesucristo; no sólo con agua, sino con agua y con sangre. Y el Espíritu es el que da testimonio, porque el Espíritu es la verdad. Porque tres son los que dan testimonio en el cielo: el Padre, el Verbo (Jesucristo), y el Espíritu Santo, y estos tres son uno. Y tres son los que dan testimonio en la tierra: el Espíritu, el agua, y la sangre, y los tres concuerdan.

Si recibimos el testimonio de los hombres, mayor es el testimonio de Dios; porque éste es el testimonio de Dios: que El ha dado testimonio acerca de Su Hijo. El que cree en el Hijo de Dios tiene el testimonio en sí mismo. El que no cree a Dios, ha hecho a Dios mentiroso, porque no ha creído en el testimonio que Dios ha dado respecto a Su Hijo. Y el testimonio es éste: que Dios nos ha dado vida eterna, y esta vida está en Su Hijo. El que tiene al Hijo tiene la vida, y el que no tiene al Hijo de Dios, no tiene la vida.

It is only through God that we have life. If we seem to be alive, but we do not have Jesus in our hearts, we are dead. Just because a person walks, eats, and sleeps doesn’t mean they are alive. Our life is in the Savior. As we can see through this scripture, it is all based on 3; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Our life is also in 3 if we live; the Spirit, the blood and the water.

Be baptized into the love of Jesus and be willing to let your blood flow for His glory. That is our reason, our duty and shows our devotion.

Praise our Holy God!

1 John 4:1-3

1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2Hereby know you the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof you have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

1 Amados, no creáis a todo espíritu, sino probad los espíritus si son de Dios; porque muchos falsos profetas han salido por el mundo. 2 En esto conoced el Espíritu de Dios: Todo espíritu que confiesa que Jesucristo ha venido en carne, es de Dios; 3 y todo espíritu que no confiesa que Jesucristo ha venido en carne, no es de Dios; y éste es el espíritu del anticristo, del cual vosotros habéis oído que ha de venir, y que ahora ya está en el mundo.

We must be wise in who we believe. The Bible has every answer. If something said or preached doesn’t line up with the Word of God, it is false. Don’t be scared to question if something doesn’t seem right. Look in your Bible. The answers are all there.

1 John 3:18

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

Hijos, no amemos de palabra ni de lengua, sino de hecho y en verdad.

This is where the saying, “walk the walk, don’t talk the talk” comes from. We can speak many things, but do our actions show it?

1 John 5:4-5

For whoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

Porque todo lo que es nacido de Dios vence al mundo; y esta es la victoria que ha vencido al mundo: nuestra fe. ¿Y quién es el que vence al mundo, sino el que cree que Jesús es el Hijo de Dios?

We all have the opportunity to be born of God. Our faith in Him is our victory. It all comes down to accepting and believing in His Son, Jesus Christ. Not Muhammad or Buddha, Jesus!!!! Victory is here; know it and trust it! God has overcome all!

1 John 2:24-25

Let that therefore abide in you, which you have heard from the beginning. If that which you have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, you also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. And this is the promise that he has promised us, even eternal life.

En cuanto a vosotros, que permanezca en vosotros lo que oísteis desde el principio. Si lo que oísteis desde el principio permanece en vosotros, vosotros también permaneceréis en el Hijo y en el Padre. Y esta es la promesa que El mismo nos hizo: la vida eterna

Don’t give up now! Boy, I needed this today and I have this inner feeling others will too. Eternal life is our destiny if we just hold on. Hold on to the promise; hold on to the Savior; Thank God Jesus is holding on to us. I am going to post a secular song today, but it fits the message. Hold on! Keep the words off the secular side and think about Jesus singing this to you.

1 John 5:5-9

Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. For there are three that bear witness in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he has testified of his Son.

¿Y quién es el que vence al mundo, sino el que cree que Jesús es el Hijo de Dios? Este es el que vino mediante agua y sangre, Jesucristo; no sólo con agua, sino con agua y con sangre. Y el Espíritu es el que da testimonio, porque el Espíritu es la verdad. Porque tres son los que dan testimonio en el cielo: el Padre, el Verbo y el Espíritu Santo, y estos tres son uno. Y tres son los que dan testimonio en la tierra:
el Espíritu, el agua y la sangre, y los tres concuerdan. Si recibimos el testimonio de los hombres, mayor es el testimonio de Dios; porque este es el testimonio de Dios: que El ha dado testimonio acerca de su Hijo.

Ah, the Holy Spirit opened this scripture to me this morning. The Holy Trinity that some beliefs do not recognize. It is right here in the Word of God. The witness of God is so much higher and more powerful than any man’s. I will trust God’s Word before any man made word. Thanks be to our Father and the Son, Jesus Christ and thanks be to the Holy Spirit!

 

 

Oh I need more of You God–More of you!!
