Overcome pt.3 w/ Pastor Chuck
A Precious Moments Saviour in a Terminator World
1 John 5:5
For everyone born of God is victorious and overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has conquered and overcome the world--our [continuing, persistant] faith[in Jesus the Son of God]. Who is the one who is victorious and overcomes the world? It is the one who believes and recognizes the fact that Jesus is the Son of God.
"I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. Int his world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
Peace, trouble, and Courage
Romans 5:8, 10
8*but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 10*For if while we were enemieswe were reconciled, to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we have reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.
17*For if, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in the life through the one man Jesus Christ.
You have to identify with the overcoming Jesus.
10*Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our bretheren, who accused them before our God day and night. has been cast down. 11*And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love thier lives to the death.

Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion...
Subdue--overcome, quieten, or bring under control
And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselvesfrom the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, "Where are you?" So he said, "I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself." And hesaid, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?" Then the man said, "the woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate." And the Lord God said to the woman, "What is this that you have done?" The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."
Fear, hiding, deception
"Please show me Your glory"
And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
This is the rock on which I will put together my church, a church so expansive with energy that not even the gates if hell will be able to keep it out.
Now to him that is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21-to him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Restoratiopn Church -- glory
