We belong to the Kingdom

“The Father has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control of darkness and has transferred us into the Kingdom realm of the Son of His love.” Colossians 1:13

So many times I have heard Christians misquoting this verse. They say it like this: “we were taken out of the kingdom of darkness and transferred into the Kingdom of His Son..”

First and foremost, the enemy doesn’t have kingdom! He desires kingdom and a crown, but he never had them and never will. On the other hand we were transferred into a Kingdom of light where there is a crown-on Jesus’ head! And the same crown is on our heads because we are seated with Him in heavenly places. So let’s stop giving the enemy attributes he never had. We were redeemed not because of ourselves but because of the love God has for us and demonstrated it on the cross. Because we are seated in heaven we experience and enter the state of peace, and here on earth we experience His demonstrated power.

This is the truth we ought to defend with all our strength because it brings freedom for us and others. The promises of God given to us through His prophesies are the weapon which we use to fight the good fight of faith. We should never fight in our own strength and with our concepts but only with His promises, because He never breaks them. The Holy Spirit doesn’t tell us diagnosis, He speaks the truth of God that Jesus promised!
