Bible Commentary for 1 John 5:5

Wesley's Notes for 1 John 5:5


5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world - That is superior to all worldly care, desire, fear? Every believer, and none else. The seventh verse #1Jo 5:7 |(usually so reckoned) is a brief recapitulation of all which has been before advanced concerning the Father, the Son, and the Spirit. It is cited, in conjunction with the sixth and eighth, #1Jo 5:6|,8 by Tertullian, Cyprian, and an uninterrupted train of Fathers. And, indeed, what the sun is in the world, what the heart is in a man, what the needle is in the mariner's compass, this verse is in the epistle. By this the sixth, eighth, and ninth verses #1Jo 5:6|,8,9 are indissolubly connected; as will be evident, beyond all contradiction, when they are accurately considered.

Discussion for 1 John 5:5

    To STANJETT

    There is only one way to respond to your 'twisted' comments.

    Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve (Matthew 4:10; Luke 4:8).

    Our message remains the same: Ye must repent.

    The Word of God is God (John 1:1) and is not of any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20).

    It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It actually means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' of what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom mankind has been deceived (Rev. 12:9) and what people must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).

    You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), as mankind follows after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Gal. 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Rev. 12:9).

    It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Gal. 1:16; Eph. 3:3,5; Rev. 1:1), and only then will you be able to overcome the spirit of this world (1 John 5:4; Rev. 3:21) and learn what 'True Repentance' means, and how this whole world has been deceived (Rev. 12:9). It should also be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).

    LUKE 15:10. LIKEWISE, I SAY UNTO YOU, THERE IS JOY IN THE PRESENCE OF THE ANGELS OF GOD OVER ONE SINNER THAT REPENTETH.
  • Taven on 1 John 5:5
    We should believe in God and no matter what happens, God will always be in your heart. I am only 8 years old and I have been saved and baptized.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on 1 John 5:5
    Great that you have come to the Lord at only 8. Most kids are not held accountable until they are 12.
  • Mishael - in Reply on 1 John 5:5
    Taven my brother rededicate his life to Jesus last night.

    That and your testimony has made me very happy. I'm praying that in you the Lord would raise "a man after God's own heart."

    Talk to God. He's always listening.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on 1 John 5:5
    Great. Let no one tell you different.
  • Princemmaraeme on 1 John 5:5
    for those who believe it works just believe in your self it will work
  • Frank Dyck on 1 John 5:5
    there is no much to say about 1 John 5:5, the scripture it self says it all, if we have faith that Jesus is the Son of Jehovah God we will overcome all the things that Satan puts in our way, it is NOT only believing in Jesus as our saviour, it is believing that Jesus is the Son of God the almighty Jehovah!!!
  • Pastor Roland Enearu on 1 John 5:5
    Only the the teaching and practice of Jesus principles that helpful, useful and powerful to all to overcome the world standard. if only we believe on Him.
