‘Who hath delivered US from the POWER of DARKNESS, and hath translated US into the KINGDOM of His dear Son: Colossians 1:13

Many erroneous teachings and Ideologies have crept into the christendom. Many have been blinded or satisfied to stay in the old while they think the new hasn’t arrived. It’s like waiting for a ship at the airport but the old is a shadow of the real thing which became fulfilled through Christs finished work. However, to understand the essence of the New, we must contrast it with the old, but staying in the old isn’t the best way to do that.

Our opening verse is a present truth. A verse like this makes one wonder why certain Christians seek deliverance. The word says we have been delivered from the power of darkness and have been transferred into the kingdom of His son. It’s a done deal. You don’t need deliverance any further than this.

‘For the grace of God that brings salvation hath appeared to ALL men. Titus 2:11

Even the non-Christians are TECHNICALLY saved, because the death of Jesus Christ brought redemption, deliverance and salvation to all men and not just those who became saved. In God’s eyes, all men should be saved because he has made the provision through His son Jesus Christ.

 

‘Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new’. 2 Corinthians 5:17

 

Understand who the Christian is: he is a new creature, a brand new man. He was never set free from sin or Satan because he never served sin or Satan. In Christ you have a brand new life that’s neither subject to the devil, sin nor its consequences. It makes no sense that God would give birth to a new creature that should be subject to Satan!

 

‘Of His own will begat He us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of His creatures’. James: 1:18

We’re literally born of God; we are His legal and vital offspring, with power and authority to cast out devils. We’re one with God. We have his very life. This is who the Christian really is. He has been raised with Christ far above all principalities and powers.

 

When the devil comes roaring, you have the authority and power to cast him out. God’s word is true, you are superior to Satan. Keep him in his position, under your feet.
