The Living Word – YESHUA/JESUS relayed and Scripture reiterates that those who are “born of God” are set-up to BE an overcomer. For by our own faith is each and every victory, in this world – life on this side of Heaven, over the fraudulent activities perpetrated by the thief who only comes to steal and kill and destroy (see John 10:10a) – Satan and his cohorts as well as the people manipulated whether wittingly or unwittingly.

“4 For whosoever is born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world; your faith. 5 Who are they who overcomes, but they who believes that Jesus is Son of God?” 1 John 5:4-5 (WEB)

An overcomer is one who has and puts to use the conquering power received by the redemptive work of Christ Jesus made manifest by the power of God through the Holy Spirit. For everyone re-aligned to YHWH (with inserted vowels YAHWEH transliterated JEHOVAH commonly interpreted the LORD) by the redemptive work of Christ Jesus has received the LORD God’s Spirit. Therefore, the “born of God” are those reborn or born again of water and the Spirit of God (see John 3:1-5).

To overcome is to prevail:
• pre•vail (pri?v?l?) v.i. 1 To gain mastery; be victorious; triumph; with over or against. 2 To be effective or efficacious; succeed.

The Living Word said:
• “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]” John 16:33 (AMP)

Therefore, those “in Christ” affirm or confess:
• Jesus the Anointed One and His Anointing is The Overcomer; and I’m an Overcomer because I am “in Him”.
