Introduction

In all of history there is no religious leader, or anybody else other than Jesus, that ever died for your sins.

Jesus left His riches in Heaven, came to earth and became one of us:

Can you imagine Bill Gates or Elon Musk giving up their fortunes, so that you could be let out of prison?

That would never happen! People are too self-centered!

But that is exactly what Jesus did for you, so that you could share His riches in Heaven.

 Jesus Overcame the World

 And because of what Hid did, we can overcome the world!

Jesus Overcame the Flesh

Our sinful flesh is so over whelming that without His help we are doomed.  Jesus died so that we can overcome the flesh.

Jesus Overcame the Devil

Without Him, we could never have a hope. The Devil is too wiley and cunning.

But, because of Jesus we can overcome him!

2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified.

1 Corinthians 15: Jesus Died, was Buried, Rose Again & was Seen by Over 500

1 Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you:
Unless you believed for nothing (in vain ).

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.

After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once,
of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.

The Truth:
Christ Died for Your Sins, was Buried, rose again the third day, and was seen by over 500 people, according to the Scriptures.


2 Corinthians 5: Jesus became Sin for Us

21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

The Truth:
Jesus became sin for you, that you might become the righteousness of God in Him.


Ephesians 2: By Grace you have been Saved through Faith

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

The Truth:
You Saved by His Grace, not by Your Works.


John 16: Jesus has Overcome the World

33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

The Truth:
Jesus has Overcome the World.


Matthew 4: Jesus has Overcome the World, the Flesh & the Devil

1Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.”

But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ”

Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple.

6 And said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written:

‘He shall give His angels charge over you,’ and, ‘In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’ ”

Jesus said to him, “It is written again, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’ ”

Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”

10 Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ”

11 Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.

The Truth:
Jesus has Overcome the Flesh & the Devil with the
Word of God.


Revelation 3: Jesus Has Overcome

21 The one who overcomes, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also have overcome and sat down with my Father on his throne.

The Truth:
Jesus has Overcome.


Philippians 2: Jesus Emptied Himself

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth.

The Truth:
God has Exalted Jesus, and every knee will bow to Him.
