How to Have a Great Day (Sunday 28th Feb 2016)

Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son (Colossians 1:12-13).

The word translated “delivered” above is the Greek “rhuomai,” which means to pluck and bring to yourself. You know, you can pluck something and let it fall; or place it somewhere. However, it’s different when you pluck it and take it to yourself. It means to rush something out of where it is, and pull it to yourself. That’s what God did with us. He didn’t just “pluck” us out of the domain of darkness, He brought us out to Himself! He rushed you out of the power, the dominion, the control, the jurisdiction, the authority of darkness, and pulled you to Himself; to absolute safety.

You’ve been delivered from the control of darkness. Darkness represents evil, evil powers and all their works. It represents all that’s destructive, everything that makes a lie, that works against the purposes of God, that’s negative to you, including Satan’s dominion. You’ve been plucked out of all such influences, and brought unto God.

You’re not under Satan’s jurisdiction; he has no authority over you; he can’t decide what happens to you. You don’t function under his jurisdiction, because you’ve been plucked out of his domain. Is it sickness that’s attacking your body? Is fear trying to take a hold of you? Is it fear of failure, fear of darkness, fear of the future, or any other kind of fear? These all belong to the domain of darkness, and you’ve been delivered from them all! Don’t be afraid of financial failure; fear isn’t allowed in the kingdom of Christ where you belong; it’s out-lawed.

It doesn’t matter what you’re going through, in the mind of God, you were plucked out of it. He’s already done it. You don’t need deliverance from the devil; no! Notice the tenses; it says, “Who hath delivered us from the dominion of darkness and hath translated us....” The word “translated” means “transferred”; He has transferred us; we’re not in the process, we’re not on our way to glory land; no. We were born there. Halleluiah!

I am not under Satan’s jurisdiction; he has no authority over me, and cannot decide what happens to me. I dwell in the Kingdom of God’s “love Son”; the realm of health, wealth, prosperity, and life eternal, soaring on the wings of the Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Isaiah 33:24 And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.

Hebrews 12:22-24 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
