You’ve been “delivered” from the power of darkness, and translated into the Kingdom of God’s love-son. You’re in that Kingdom now, not when you get to heaven. This is the reason it’s such an incongruity to accept or even think that the Christian needs deliverance from Satan. Satan and the Christian aren’t in the same class. The Christian is in the Kingdom of God’s dear Son, too far and too high from Satan’s domain.
Ephesians 2:6 says we’ve been raised up together, and made to sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. We’re seated together with Christ, far above principalities and powers. This is the reality. As long as a Christian believes he or she is troubled by demons and therefore requires deliverance, that Christian has left his or her estate. The question to ask would be where did the demons meet him? Certainly not in Christ, where he’s supposed to be seated far above them!
That’s the reason as a Christian, it’s important that you know the Word of God for yourself. You need to know who you are, what you have, where you are, and your abilities in Christ; you don’t need to be afraid of the devil! You’re superior to him. If you’ve experienced spiritual attacks, perhaps it was because you didn’t know what to do. All you have to do is say, “In the Name of Jesus Christ, Satan, stop it!
From this day, you’ll come back no more.” Surely, he’ll flee and return no more. Being born again, you live in the presence of God, and function with the dominion of Christ. Live the victorious life that you’ve received in Him.
Personally I always like to begin Sunday morning with a prayer to start the Holy Day off on a bright note. It’s important to pray not only as a community in church, but as an individual speaking truth to our Lord. Let us not forget just as mentioned above that we are in the most amazing kingdom God could create for us. We live in a world in which Jesus once lived, and where he will soon come back, it is the best kind of world there is. We must cherish this world, built it to His standards and fulfill our duties as Christians.
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for transferring me from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of your dear Son, Jesus Christ.
I thank you for bringing me into Christ.
Christ is my place – my place of health, wealth, security, prosperity, and greatness. The prince of this world, Satan, has nothing in me.
Glory to your name forever.
