“Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will”
Ephesians 1:5 (KJV)
If you don’t know that you are righteous, you can never reign in life. If you desire to stand tall and win in the affairs of life, you must receive what God has made available to you. You have been accepted in the beloved! You are righteous! God cannot deny you!
The bible declares: “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:” (Colossians 1:14 KJV) In Him we have… That means that you already have it, not that you will have it, even the forgiveness of sins. You have been bought back and you have been sealed with His Spirit of promise. You have been delivered from the power of darkness and translated into the kingdom of His dear son. You now belong to the kingdom of God. You are standing upon a superior platform where the devil can do you no harm. The devil cannot penetrate this platform.
That is why the scripture says “if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature” (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV) He is a brand new specie of being that has never existed before. So you see, you are a totally a brand new person. You are not a Jew. You are not a Gentile. You are the church. You are a special breed. God made you totally new. You are not like others. And God deals with you from a different level. For the church, the bible declares that God does not input their sins. “Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.” (Romans 4:7-8 KJV) If you have received Christ as your Lord, your sins are forgiven. The church must understand that as far as sin issue is concerned, you have been discharged and acquitted, the case is closed and there is no appeal, you are standing on a superior platform. Enjoy it.
