Colossians 1:12-14 LEB
'...giving thanks to the Father who has qualified you for a share of the inheritance of the saints in light, who has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have the redemption, the forgiveness of sins.'
When I study my Bible, I pay more attention on the tenses (esp the New Testament)
It brings clarity to my understanding of the Scripture. The Bible verses above does show what God has already done for us (for the born-again christian).
God already qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. God also has rescued us from the domain(authority) of darkness and has equally transferred us into the Kingdom of His dear Son(Jesus Christ).
Now this means, satan no longer has authority over us, but if you don't know it, he will take you for a ride. As a Christian, your sins are forgiven and you are under the authority and leadership of our Lord Jesus Christ. Be conscious of this, don't let your mind tell you otherwise. Let this be your mindset always. God has delivered you from hell/darkness/evil and not only should you believe it, make it your confession always for when you resist the devil, he will flee from you.
Please take your time and meditate on this scripture again and again, it will come alive to you. God bless you.
