1 John 4:4 (Amplified Bible)

Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world.

1 John 4:4 (New King James Version)

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

A. We have overcame the enemy that is in this world.

"Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist],"

1 John 4:6 (Amplified Bible)

We are [children] of God. Whoever is learning to know God [progressively to perceive, recognize, and understand God by observation and experience, and to get an ever-clearer knowledge of Him] listens to us; and he who is not of God does not listen or pay attention to us. By this we know (recognize) the Spirit of Truth and the spirit of error.

Whoever listens to us, that's the test if they have the Spirit of Truth and the spirit of error. There are people when I preach the WORD just laughed themselves to death, but in my mind, at least they're happy to go to hell. But there are people that cry when they hear me preach, in my mind I'm thinking that anyways even if they cry here, they will be comforted by GOD in heaven.

1 John 4:16 (Amplified Bible)

And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, and God dwells and continues in him.

We dwell in GOD and GOD dwells in us. We continue in GOD and GOD continues His Love, Power and Presence in us.

1 John 3:9-10 (Amplified Bible)

No one born (begotten) of God [deliberately, knowingly, and habitually] practices sin, for God’s nature abides in him [His principle of life, the divine sperm, remains permanently within him]; and he cannot practice sinning because he is born (begotten) of God.

By this it is made clear who take their nature from God and are His children and who take their nature from the devil and are his children: no one who does not practice righteousness [who does not conform to God’s will in purpose, thought, and action] is of God; neither is anyone who does not love his brother (his fellow believer in Christ).

The divine sperm of GOD dwells in us, the very Presence, the WORD OF GOD - the LORD JESUS CHRIST dwells in us. We took our nature from GOD and not the nature of the enemy, the sinful nature, but GODly nature, that practices righteousness in us.
