Grace, Love and Peace to each and everyone in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Knowing what belongs to us will give us a greater idea of who we are, what we can ask and what we can claim.
As a believer there are certain truths that we need to understand and if we don’t know or understand we will be doing everything wrong.
We have learnt so far that:
New Creation belongs
Healing Belongs to us
Blessing Belongs to us
Righteousness Belongs to us
Authority belongs to us
Last week we learnt the Introduction to Redemption and a few things that we have redeemed from.
This week we will be learning about Redemption from Spiritual death.
There are three different kinds of death
1. Spiritual Death
2. Physical death
3. Eternal death
Genesis 2:16 – 17
And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”
1. Spiritual death means being separated from God and the life that God gives.
The moment they were separated from God but they did not die physically.
When they ate the fruit they died spiritually but not physical death.
When they were in spiritual death – they had the qualities of Satan rather than God.
As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.
There are two kinds of people
1. Alive unto God
2. Dead unto God
He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.”
When spiritual death came – fear came and death came.
Adam and Eve began to rule by their reasoning and thoughts
Faith died – spiritual thought died – reasoning was born
“I assure you: Anyone who hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not come under judgment but has passed from death to life.
All those led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons. 15 For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father!” 16 The Spirit Himself testifies together with our spirit that we are God’s children,
“Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death”
1 Corinthians 15:25 – 28
For He must reign until He puts all His enemies under His feet. 26 The last enemy to be abolished is death. 27 For God has put everything under His feet. But when it says “everything” is put under Him, it is obvious that He who puts everything under Him is the exception. 28 And when everything is subject to Christ, then the Son Himself will also be subject to the One who subjected everything to Him, so that God may be all in all.
