The Greater One-1
1 John 4:4 “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
1 John 4:4 “But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.” (NLT)
As Believers, we need to understand the power that is available to us and what we carry. We need to understand what the New Creation reality is all about.
Many Christians are fidgety and weak on the outside because they are ignorant of their real identity in Christ. They have no idea of what the new covenant has offered them; as such they live a defeated life.
Before we begin to look at our focal scripture, let us travel back some years and see something that happened, and then return to tie things up.
Let’s see an account from 1Samuel 5.
1 Samuel 5:1 “And the Philistines took the Ark of God, and brought it from Ebenezer unto Ashdod.”
1 Samuel 5:2 “When the Philistines took the Ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon.”
1 Samuel 5:3 “And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon [was] fallen upon his face to the earth before the Ark of the LORD. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again.”
The above account was a very sad event in the life of the children of Israel. The background to that event is that the Philistines had launched an attack on Israel and succeeded in defeating them.
In the preceding chapter, we saw what really happened:
1 Samuel 4:10 “And the Philistines fought, and Israel was smitten, and they fled every man into his tent: and there was a very great slaughter; for there fell of Israel thirty thousand footmen.”
1 Samuel 4:11 “And the Ark of God was taken; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain.”
To be continued…
