GODS CHILDREN OVERCOMING THE WORLD
These scriptures do not imply that all things by all Christians at all times can be overcome. Since this article concerns prophecies about the New Jerusalem in the age that followed the age of the the Gentiles. An excellent example of this is would be how Gods saints had long ago overcome the idolatry of the nations wherever the Gospel had been preached. It however did not overcome despotic human government which according to Bible prophecy would not start to occur until the Roman empire fell. There was a very specific and natural reason why. You can see that in this article.
1 John 1:10. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13. Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Daniel 7:21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; 22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.....26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it to the end. 27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
