Topic: *Understanding your dominion at Salvation*

Text: *Colosians.1:13*, the bible says;
 *Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:*
If you have been suffering from any form of humiliation from the devil, pls read and meditate on this eternal truth. Devil is not powerful over everyone but has power over the unsaved soul because they belong to his kingdom. If a Christian is suffering from devil’s attack, it’s because of lack of revelational truth am about to share with you this morning.
Let’s break down our golden text :
13] *Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:*
a. *Who has DELIVERED US*…..
This text is talking about what God had already done for us through Christ. Notice the Bible didn’t say “God is just planning to deliver us but has already delivered us”. It is past tense already in that Bible text. Read again and again *who has DELIVERED US*
You see, Jesus has done it but it takes revelational knowledge of this simple truth to enjoy this deliverance. As simple as that verse is, it has changed my life since I saw it.
Salvation has earned us that deliverance. When you have insight into this depth of truth, then, it will become evidence in your daily life.
Listen, you won’t get quick understanding of this truth without meditating on it. It is meditation that get you rooted in the word and open your eyes of understanding to see who you really are in Christ. Without meditation, kings and Priests ordained by God’s word will live like slaves in the world created for them to rule.
b. *FROM THE POWER OF DARKNESS*
We are not under the power of darkness again. There has been changed of ownership between God and devil. When God accepts us at salvation, we changed nature absolutely. We changed name at salvation from child of devil to children of God. We are not under darkness but light. We are now children of light. Curses is related to darkness while blessing is associated with light. We are in the light not darkness.
Don’t be fooled by your circumstances. Don’t allow devil to lie to you that you’re under curse because of the present challenges in your life. Get free from demonic mentality. Africans have a way of demonizing every condition.
c. .. *AND HAS TRANSLATED US INTO THE KINGDOM OF HIS DEAR SON*
When you are in The United State, you are bound by their constitution as long as you stay in their country but once you are out of their shores, you are free. This is the same with our translation from the kingdom of devil to the kingdom of Christ Jesus. The day you surrender your life genuinely to Jesus, that day, you have been transferred from the kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of light. It’s true 100%.
Jesus is our Lord and we are under his jurisdiction. Devil doesn’t have any right over us. We are in the world but not part of the world. We have been raised together with Christ in heavenly places far above all principalities and powers (Including devil and his agents)- Eph. 1:21, 2:6.
Do I believe in deliverance at all? Yes, for babes in Christ who are lacking in understanding of who they are in Christ.
Do I do deliverance at all? Yes but not every Sunday, not every Month and not every Year. I have only done deliverance service in my church once & that was immediately I got to my present Church. At the time, some were lacking in the knowledge of the truth. I needed to bear them in my wings of faith as new born babies that still have need of milk. That was about 2 years ago. We haven’t done any more deliverance since them. I have fed them with New Testament Realities and they can stand by their faith.
What you feed your congregation consistently determines how they think and live. If you build fear of devil in them, they will end up fearing devil than God. If you build faith in them, they will destroy devil’s territories in their lives without calling you always.
What are you fed with?
Thanks for reading
