he that is in you
1 John 4:4
4:4 he that is in you. The devil may be “the god of this world” (II Corinthians 4:4) and have a multitude of demonic spirits under his control (Ephesians 6:11-12), but the Holy Spirit who indwells every believer is the omnipotent God. As long as we neither “grieve…the Spirit” nor “quench…the Spirit” (Ephesians 4:30; I Thessalonians 5:19), we can take great comfort in knowing that through the Spirit and His Word we can “overcome the wicked one” (I John 2:14).
