Hello Precious One!
“For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He Loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:13-14.
We used to live in the kingdom and in the dominion of darkness before we received salvation in Christ Jesus. When we received the gift of salvation, we were brought into a new kingdom with a very new and different dominion! We were brought into the kingdom of God, the heavenly kingdom in which there is no darkness at all! We were in the realm of the dominion of darkness in which sin, sickness, weakness, malice, resentment, addiction, poverty…. ruled and reigned.
But we were taken out of this kingdom and the Father has brought into the kingdom of His Love, grace, glory, perfection, wholeness, peace, joy, kindness, forgiveness, mercy, compassion, supernatural and miraculous power, perfect health and infinite wealth… This is the heavenly kingdom in which we have been redeemed into! This is the realm we now live by the Spirit!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jesus didn’t die so you and I would make a decision to try to be a better person, more moral than before. NO, a million times NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He died to completely take us out the dominion, rule, and of darkness, and transferred into a new kingdom of His Love and Grace and supernatural power, a realm of infinite goodness and Joy! Before He brought into His own kingdom, Jesus had to make us into new beings. He took out from within us, the sinful nature. Sin was our nature, the essence of our being. Why do you think there is so much evil in the world, it is because people are filled with the nature of sin, darkness, evil…..
Jesus took out this nature and gave us His new nature by putting into us His Spirit! He also took out our old wounded heart that was filled with darkness, and gave to us a new heart! He completely remade from the inside out!!!!!! This new creation has been completely cleansed and 100% perfected of all sin and all of its effects in the Spirit realm!
“I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you…” Ezekiel 36:25-27.
“Surely He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered Him striken by God, smitten by Him and afflicted. But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed… and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.” Isaiah 53:4-6.
Jesus took away everything we had inherited from the kingdom of darkness. EVERYTHING!!!!!! And made us new creations, glorified and perfected us, and made one with Him and made us as He is!!!!!!! After He completely cleansed us, He made us new creations by filling us with His glory and perfection, with His heart and Spirit!!!!!!! As new creations, in the Spirit, this is what we have become! Then, the Father raised us into the heavenly realm with Christ and seated us with Him! He takes into His kingdom and plants us there!
“Consequently, YOU ARE no longer foreigners and aliens, but (YOU ARE) fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household…” Ephesians 2:19.
In this kingdom of heaven, where we now live and reside in Christ Jesus, there is no darkness, sin, weakness, or sense of “lack” in any form! In this current heavenly, Spiritual kingdom, we exist as Jesus is, one with Him, filled with all of His Joy, Love, power…..
It takes microscopes, telescopes, x-ray machines, MRI’s, cat-scans… to see things that the natural eye cannot see on its own. To see into this heavenly, Spiritual realm, we are given the Holy Spirit to make this realm come alive. Yes, we have the Bible, but the Bible read a part from reliance on Holy Spirit will only be dry, empty knowledge. “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind conceived what God has prepared for those who Love Him”—but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit.” 1 Corinthians 2:10.
I Bless you as the “eyes of your heart become opened and enlightened” to see, experience, and encounter our heavenly, Spiritual Home, Now!!!!!!!!!!! SHALOM!!!!!
