“He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.” Revelation 21:7
“To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne” – Rev. 3:21. It is important that we are well aware of how He overcomes. From Revelation 5:5-6 we are made to understand that “the Lion of the tribe of Juda” PREVAILED as a “Lamb.” He is seen among the full overcomers as a Lamb slain, yet standing. Hallelujah! Satan could not hold Him down.
As He would overcome in and by us, we find on the Christian course that there are levels of conflict; that is, spheres of victory, in body, soul and spirit we are under attack. There are the world, the flesh, and the devil; or shall we say sin, self, and Satan to deal with. The world today has a powerful influence on mankind toward sin. But Jesus has not only overcome the world; but He “gave Himself for our sin, that He might deliver us from this present evil world,” providing our escape from its corruption, separating us from it, making us partakers of His Divine nature – Gal. 1:4; II Pet. 1:4. Our part is faith – I John. 5:4. Our fleshly nature has cravings that are against God. Satan knows this, so he works on the flesh to tempt us to go against our Father’s will. We are told to resist him – “Whom resist steadfast in the faith” – I Pet. 5:9. We are taught to refrain from making “provision for the flesh,” and to “walk in the Spirit,” and “not fulfil the lust of the flesh” – Rom. 13:14; Gal. 5:16.
