Col 2:9 For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form,
10 and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority; 11 and in Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in the removal of the body of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ; 12 having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, 14 having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. 15 When He had disarmed the rulers and authorities, He made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through Him.
THE DEVIL WILL TRY TO ENFORCE THOSE DECREES ON YOU.
2 Sam 23:11 Now after him was Shammah the son of Agee a Hararite. And the Philistines were gathered into a troop where there was a plot of ground full of lentils, and the people fled from the Philistines.
12 But he took his stand in the midst of the plot, defended it and struck the Philistines; and the Lord brought about a great victory.
WE MAY NOT HAVE A BEAN PATCH TO DEFEND TODAY BUT WE DO HAVE A SPIRITUAL KINGDOM ALONG WITH BENEFITS TO DEFEND.
TOO MANY CHRISTIANS AREN’T ENJOYING BENEFITS OF KINGDOM.
Luke 12:32 Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom.
Luke 17:21 For behold, the kingdom of God is in your midst.”
WE ARE HEIRS OF A SPIRITUAL KINGDOM
THE BENEFITS BELONG TO US. (Ps 103, Ps 68:19)
Amp 1 Cor 2:9 but just as it is written [in Scripture], “Things which the eye has not seen and the ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, who obey Him, and who gratefully recognize the benefitsthat He has bestowed].”
THE ENEMY HAS NO RIGHT TO STEAL WHAT BELONGS TO YOU!
THERE IS A FLOW OF THE KINGDOM
Rom 14:17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
RIGHTEOUSNESS IS A GIFT…
Rom 5:17 For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
RIGHTEOUSNESS MAKES YOU CONSCIOUS OF JESUS VICTORY
THE KINGDOM FLOW IS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND YOU ARE TO DEFEND WHO YOU ARE BY DECLARING WHAT JESUS DID FOR YOU.
GOD WANTS TO BRING OUR FUTURE INTO OUR PRESENT BASED ON WHAT JESUS DID FOR US IN THE PAST.
THERE IS A BOLDNESS THAT GOES WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS! (Pro 28:1)
PEACE IS SOME OF THE FRUIT OF YOUR INHERITANCE
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. (NO REPLICA)
THERE ARE THINGS WE DO TO MAINTAIN AND WALK IN THE PEACE OF GOD
Rom 12:8 If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.
JOY IS THE NATURE OF THE KINGDOM
DON’T YOU LET THE ENEMY STEAL YOUR JOY!
John 15:11 These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.
