THE KINGDOM OF THE SON OF HIS LOVE
This primary position of understanding that the Kingdom of God is a reality is where Believers discover themselves to be recipients of God's love and power just as Jesus was.
Every Believer can possess the fullness of this significant and powerful spiritual understanding because when we were born again our heavenly Father ...
"... delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love ...".
This happened during the "washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit" (Titus 3'5) of every new Believer.
Paul passes this understanding on to all Believers, by the Holy Spirit, in his letter to the Colossians. Here it is in its setting:
"... giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.
He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,
in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins ..." (Chapter 1'12-14).
Satan knows what these words really mean. So he knows about the place of power that Believers have.
But, infinitely more important than that, Believers need to realise what these words really mean and the power they have in Christ.
It cannot be overstated: all who Believe in Jesus have been taken out from under Satan's power by their heavenly Father.
The only weapons the enemy has are the ones he used in the Garden of Eden - temptations, deceptions and lies.
Always remember this, he can never hinder or prevent a Child of God from communicating with the Father under any circumstances (read Hebrews 4'16).
Standing where Jesus stood
The greatest aspect of Jesus' life during His time on earth was His relationship with the Father. His Father was everything to Him.
Whenever He said: “Abba, Father" (Mark 14'36) He expressed His familiar love relationship with the Father (also see John 17).
For those who are heirs of God through Jesus Him the Father is everything to them too.
Believers live throughout their days on earth in the understanding of the Kingdom of the Son of God's love. And a wonderful place it is!
They pray to the Father in Jesus' name in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Nevertheless, many are unaware of the fullness of their deliverance. Also, many are unaware of their place of power. Because of their ignorance Satan is able to afflict them.
Jesus demonstrated Kingdom power. For example:
“... if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you," Matthew 12'28.
“But if I cast out demons with the finger of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you," Luke 11'20.
And He declared:
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also;
and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father," John 14'12.
When Christ was on earth, the Kingdom was on earth. Where the Body of Christ is on earth, God's Kingdom is also on earth, potentially.
