DELIVERED FROM THE POWER OF DARKNESS
Colossians 1 vs
»»13. Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son: -[KJV]«« ||
OUR opening text brings to fore the revelation of two kingdoms. The kingdom of darkness championed by the devil and the Kingdom of God’s dear son, ruled by Jesus Christ. The kingdom of His dear Son is superior. A kingdom usually comprises of a king and a domain (where the king rules), subjects and principles. So whoever is found in the kingdom of the devil has Satan as his king ; His domain is this world and the heart of sinners; His subjects are the cohort of demons; he has several principles such as sin, bondage, stealing, killing and destroying (death) (John 10:10).
On the contrary, anyone who is a citizen of the supreme Kingdom of Christ Jesus has Him to be his King and Lord; His domain is in heaven and earth and heart of godly; Angels are his ministers or subjects and governs by timeless and truthful principles such as eternal life, deliverance, salvation, righteousness, prosperity, health etc. Since it took a man to lose the dominion mandate, it required a man to legally take this dominion back. Therefore by sending Jesus Christ to die for the sins of the world, whoever is found in Satan’s domain is there illegally. This is because he no more has that authority to dominate any man forcefully (Col 2:15)
The word “delivered” here is used interchangeably with “rescued”. And it means “been dragged out of danger “. So God HAS (not WILL) dragged us from the danger which exists in the jurisdiction of the kingdom of darkness. Through His redemptive work on the cross by His son Jesus, there is complete deliverance for all who believes in Jesus. Unless one knows, understands and apply this truth, no one can live freely above sin, death, devil and his cohorts. Because you can’t be in Satan’s kingdom and enjoy goodies of the heavenly kingdom. Get it , the believer is no more in the hands or kingdom of the devil. You have been safely and gloriously delivered, rescued and dragged out of the kingdom of darkness. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Praise God I am safely and gloriously delivered, rescued and dragged out of the kingdom of darkness. I now belong to the supreme Kingdom of Jesus Christ. I am no more subject to the dominion of sin, death , failure and deceptions of the wicked. New King, new Lord, new principles are my delight. I am alive to life, righteousness and reality. Hallelujah!
Enjoy A Glorious Friday !
