Too many professed believers in Christ are resting on their laurels—are living like they are satisfied with their past achievement (salvation), so much so that they refuse to consider additional effort from them is necessary. They have assumed that their salvation automatically made them the Bride of Christ—made them saintly Overcomers. As a result, they either overlooked the Scripture that commands them to work out their own salvation, or they read and studied said Scripture but concluded it does not pertain to them.
Believers should never be money-oriented or obsessed with material possessions. However, this truth doesn’t mean they can’t find happiness in their own little world. Believers surely can count their blessings daily, give Father God thanks daily, and daily laugh, smile, have fun, and cherish the big and small things that delight them.
The anointing the apostle John speaks about—that which is embedded deeply within believers and that which teaches them all truth—is the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. This empowering, edifying, and supernatural baptism (believers’ spiritual edge) also is called the Holy Spirit’s Filling, which may or may not happen the moment believers receive their salvation.
Are you an Overcomer? Most churchgoers believe they are Christ’s Wheat—meaning, they believe that the end-time Bride of Christ or Body of Christ is symbolized as the Wheat Harvest. Nothing can be further from Father God’s Divine Truth.
