The Apostle John seems to answer the question of “Who is it that overcomes?” The answer is “the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God” is the one who overcomes. Our faith is our overcoming but even that is a free gift from God (Ephesians 2:8-9). Many Christians have been troubled by the verse in Revelation where Jesus says that “The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations” (Revelation 2:26). Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. for everyone born of God overcomes the world. 1 John 5:5
