Scripture: 1 John 5:1-5

To be victorious one must be first born again. One also must know that they are an over-comer. Being a Christian means that you get hooked up to a body of like-minded individuals who will love and help you.

Four points that are enemies that contain multiple enemies within them. These enemies have ALL been defeated by God if you’re a born-again believer.

The World

John 16:33; 1 John 4:4, The world is against God. Everything about it is against God. These enemies hate everything about Jesus Christ. However, God is over the world and if He lives in you then you have overcome the world. 

Romans 8:35-37, tribulation, distress, persecution, famine, nakedness, peril, or sword. The harder these things are the deeper a Christian digs into God. We are more than a conquerors.

Romans 8:38-39, nothing can separate a Christian from Jesus Christ. NOTHING!

The Wicked One

1 John 2:12-14, the first thing about Satan is that he is not God or a god. He is a created being and therefore he is not omnipresent. Yes, he does have minions yet they too are not omnipresent. Just because he is much lower than God he is not to be forgotten about. He is out to steal, kill, and destroy. Through the strength of God our redeemer, we are over-comers of Satan and his minions.


Romans 7:23-25, As a Christian, God washed away your sin however, He did not take away your sinful nature. The outward man is the sinful nature and the flesh will not inherit Heaven. As for Christians, we will be given a new body, a Heavenly body that will inherit Heaven.

Romans 12:20-21, the application. This is like having bullets in your gun. One can carry a gun but without bullets it’s useless. An offensive ability against the enemy. 


1 Corinthians 15:52-57, people can defeat drinking, drugs, and sex, but one they will never defeat is death. The day one is born death is on their heels. As a Christian, death will be swallowed up in victory. 

As Christians, we should be living as a victor and not as a defeated individual.
