1 John 5:4

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 4 For whoever is born of God overcomes [has conquered] the world; and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. [John tells us what it means to overcome the world in 1 John 2:17: the world passes away and disappears, and with it the forbidden cravings (the passionate desires, the lust) of it. Paul confirms: they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world have (past tense) come; the world has been crucified to me, and me to it, Gal 6:14. To overcome the world is to be crucified from the lusts of the world: to have mortified the lusts and desires for things, wealth, bodies, sex; that is the victory that overcomes. But the only victory the believers of Christendom have experienced, is victory over their conscience and guilt for committing sin .]

1 John 2:13

 13 I write to you, fathers, because you have known him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the wicked one. I write to you, young children, because you have known the Father. [In this verse the Greek for young men that have overcome the devil is neaniskoi <3495>, and the Greek for young children that know the Father is paidia <3813>; these are not the little children disciples who still sin. The young children of this verse know the Father; to know the Father is to be a son freed from all sin, in union with God, and in the kingdom.]
