“If you’ll only believe, you can see the glory of God.” Then faith overcomes death. Faith is the victory over death. Faith is the victory over sin. Faith is the victory over sickness. Faith is the victory over worry. Faith is the victory over flustrations. Faith is the victory over the world.
60 You say, “John, when he wrote that, he did not have my troubles. He did not have to deal with the folk that I deal with. He did not have to go through the things that I do.” That’s right.
61 He may not had to deal with the same folk. He may not had to overcome the same thing. But he never excluded them, for he said this, “The faith is the victory that overcomes the world,” the whole thing. How is it? Get faith in it. Ride above it.
When we have the written Word of God laying before us, and the Holy Spirit here performing and showing the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, with the Divine promises written here, that, “Whatsoever thing you desire when you pray, believe you receive it, and you shall have it.” What do you have to do then? Have faith. Not just floating faith, not just a make-believe faith, but a real faith.
62 Now, faith is a conqueror. Faith is an overcomer. It just isn’t a—a peace-maker. It overcomes. “Faith is the victory that overcomes the world.” What does it do? What is faith? What is, to “conqueror”? Conquer and victory is the same. To conquer, it means “to beat down; to over-ride; to handcuff; to throw into prison.” It means that the sin that once ruled you, you rule it now. It means that you have overcome it. You are…You’ve whipped it. You are greater than it is. Oh, I feel religious right now!
63 Which was first, a sinner or a Saviour? A Saviour, for a Saviour is more powerful than a sin. Which was first, the healer or a sickness. It couldn’t be a healer ’less He was over the sickness. It is a healer, It can conquer the sickness.
64 And faith is the victory that overcomes every curse of the devil. Faith is the victory. Faith in what? Not faith in your church, not faith in your creed, not faith in some man. But, faith in Jesus Christ Who made the promise, that’s the victory. What is it? It is the victory.
