This is the second part of the series of our discourse on understanding and enforcing our redemptive and covenant rights in Christ.
I hope you have read part one for a better understanding. Please GO HERE to read part one if you have not read it.
In part one, we looked at the need to have adequate knowledge of who we are in Christ and our redemptive and covenant right to enjoy true freedom from every oppression and molestation of the devil.
Secondly, 2 Corinthians 5:20 says that we are ambassadors of Christ “now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.
God expects us to be reconciled to Him. Once we are reconciled to God, which is the starting point before what Colossians said will become a reality in our lives.
That is, we get reconciled to God before we get delivered from the kingdom of darkness and get translated into the kingdom of Christ, it is then we become an ambassador for Christ.
To this end, every true believer should see himself or herself as an ambassador for Christ which gives us an ambassadorial immunity from the oppression and molestations from the kingdom of darkness.
Take for instance an ambassador of any country today, let say the American Ambassador to Nigeria.
No matter the government in power, the American ambassador to Nigeria enjoys an ambassadorial immunity.
In the realm of the Spirit, we should know and enforce our ambassadorial immunity, meaning that as we are not under the kingdom of the devil.
We should never allow the devil to force us to partake in what is obtained in the kingdom of darkness but not in the kingdom of light.
Remember, Colossians 1:13 says, “He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love.
In other words, the starting point to our enforcing our ambassadorial immunity is to have an adequate understanding that Christ had delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love.
Thirdly, we should have an adequate understanding that Christ came to restore the dominion God gave to man after creation. See Genesis 1:28 which says,
“Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
The problem with some saints of God is that they allow the devil to dominate them, thereby molesting them with all kinds of oppressions, instead of them exercising their dominion as God gave them.
We will begin to enjoy our freedom and dominion when it is done on us that the devil had no power and authority to dominate us. This is one of the ways to enforce our redemptive and covenant rights.
Remember what Isaac told Esau in Genesis 27:39-40 “And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, thy dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth and of the dew of heaven from above;
And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass, when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.
In other words, no matter the level of the oppressions and molestations of the devil, when we shall have the dominion, it is then we shall break the yoke of the devil off our neck.
We should realize that by reason of our redemption, we have dominion and should dominate the devil and the forces of darkness rather than allowing them to dominate us.
Moreover, we should strive to allow it to sink into our subconsciousness of what 2Pe 1:4 said, “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises:
That by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
That is to say that we should see ourselves as partakers of God’s divine nature. This means that Christ should be our perfect example, if the devil could not molest Christ with infirmities, we should not allow the devil to molest us.
Finally, we should see ourselves as sitting with Christ far above the devil, please see Ephesians 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
What did Ephesians 1:20-21 say? “Which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,
Far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.
Please I highly recommend that you read the book “new creation realities by E.W Kenyon it will help you to understand more of our redemptive and covenant rights.
After all said and done, we should know and enforce our redemptive and covenant rights in Christ. Shalom!
