"Giving thanks unto the Father... Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son" (Colossians 1:12-13)
The word translated "delivered" above is the Greek word "rhuomai," which means to pluck or take something out of where it is, and to pull it to yourself. God didn't just take us out of the domain of darkness and leave us waiting, He brought us into the Kingdom of His love-Son, to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the Kingdom of light.
You've been taken out of the power, dominion, control, and authority of darkness, into absolute safety; the glorious liberty of the sons of God. So now, you're not under Satan's jurisdiction-- he has no authority over you whatsoever-- he can't decide what happens with you.
There's nothing of darkness in you. Darkness represents evil powers and all their works. It represents all that's destructive and negative to you; everything that makes a lie and works against the purposes of God. Darkness refers to Satan's dominion. But thank God! You've been taken out of those influences and brought into God's marvelous light.
Is something hurting or trying to bind you? Is it sickness that's attacking your body? Is fear trying to take a hold of you? Is it fear of failure, fear of darkness, fear of the future, or any other kind of fear? All of these things belong to the domain of darkness, the jurisdiction of Satan, but you live far above them!
(God has) "...raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus."
You occupy the position of power, authority, and dominion, where you reign and rule with Christ over Satan and his works of darkness.
Even now, you can release yourself from any bondage of the mind-- free yourself from the chains of deception. Tell yourself, "I'm not under Satan's jurisdiction," and walk free. It's that simple! It doesn't matter what your experiences might have been before now, you don't need deliverance from the devil. Act on the Word and walk free!
Notice again the tenses in our theme Scripture: God already transferred you out of Satan's dominion-- you don't belong there! Therefore, you have the right to cast off anything and everything that's of darkness. All it takes is your word. Give the word and effect a change. Hallelujah!
I live in the Kingdom of God's love-Son, wherein there is no darkness at all. I'm reigning in union with the Lord, enjoying my blessed life in Christ. Glory to God!
