SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:5

¿Quin es el que vence al mundo, sino el que cree que Jess es el Hijo de Dios?

Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 John 5:5

Verse 5. He that believeth that
Jesus is the Son of God?] That he is the promised Messiah, that he came by a supernatural generation; and, although truly man, came not by man, but by the power of the Holy Ghost in the womb of the Virgin Mary. The person who believes this has the privilege of applying to the Lord for the benefits of the incarnation and passion of Jesus Christ, and receives the blessings which the Jews cannot have, because they believe not the Divine mission of Christ.

John Gill's Bible Commentary

Ver. 5. Who is he that overcometh the
world , &c.] This question carries in it a strong affirmation, that no other person is the conqueror of the world: but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God ? and this points out what that faith is which obtains the victory over the world; and shows that it is not that trust and confidence which has a man's self, or any mere creature, thing, or person, for its object, but only Jesus Christ, and that as he is the Son of God; and which is not a mere assent to such a proposition, to which devils and unregenerate persons may assent, and do; but it is a seeing of the Son in the glory, fulness, and suitableness of his person, office, and grace; a going to him, being drawn by the Father; and a living upon him as the Son of God, and trusting in him for life, righteousness, and salvation: and this shows, that the victory over the world is not owing to faith itself, but to its object Christ, who has overcome it, and makes true believers in him more than conquerors over it.

Matthew Henry Commentary

Verses 1-5 - True
love for the people of God, may be distinguished from natura kindness or party attachments, by its being united with the love of God, and obedience to his commands. The same Holy Spirit that taugh the love, will have taught obedience also; and that man cannot trul love the children of God, who, by habit, commits sin or neglects know duty. As God's commands are holy, just, and good rules of liberty an happiness, so those who are born of God and love him, do not count the grievous, but lament that they cannot serve him more perfectly Self-denial is required, but true Christians have a principle whic carries them above all hinderances. Though the conflict often is sharp and the regenerate may be cast down, yet he will rise up and renew his combat with resolution. But all, except believers in Christ, ar enslaved in some respect or other, to the customs, opinions, or interests of the world. Faith is the cause of victory, the means, the instrument, the spiritual armour by which we overcome. In and by fait we cleave to Christ, in contempt of, and in opposition to the world Faith sanctifies the heart, and purifies it from those sensual lusts by which the world obtains sway and dominion over souls. It has the indwelling Spirit of grace, which is greater than he who dwells in the world. The real Christian overcomes the world by faith; he sees, in an by the life and conduct of the Lord Jesus on earth, that this world is to be renounced and overcome. He cannot be satisfied with this world but looks beyond it, and is still tending, striving, and pressin toward heaven. We must all, after Christ's example, overcome the world or it will overcome us to our ruin.
