We Have Come Too Far To Turn Back Now

1 John 4:4-6

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.

5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.

6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

Some of the Christians in John’s day were tempted to believe the doctrine that denigrated the Cross.

They had overcome that temptation because greater was He who was in them, than He that was in the world.

Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.

In verse 5, when it says “They are of the world” it is referring to the false teachers of verse 3.

“Therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.”

This is referring to the fact that the source of their false Doctrine was of the world.

The false teachers were saying what the world wanted to hear.

2 Timothy 4:1-4

1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

These people wanted a feel good Gospel, they wanted their doctrine, candy coated.

We, as Christians, need to Preach the Word; be instant in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

It was being warned that the day would come that they would not endure sound doctrine.

They wanted preachers who would teach what they wanted to hear instead of what the Word of God says.

As a Christian, there will be times that I will really go through things.

There will be times that I will not understand why I am going through all these things that I am going through.

When this happens, and trust me it will, stand upon what the Word of God says.

Don’t go to people who might try to tell you things that you might want to hear, but take your case to what the Word teaches you.

There will even be times that you will be tempted. When you are go to:

1 Corinthians 10:13

13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

There is no temptation to you that someone else has not ever been tempted with.

The Word says that God is faithful, who will not let you be tempted above what you are able to handle.

If I am tempted then God will make a way of escape.

1 John 4:4-4

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.

Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.
