RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DEVOTIONAL WEDNESDAY 13TH JANUARY, 2021
THE PLACE CALLED CHRIST .
“Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son”. (Colossians 1:13).
As read in our theme verse, you’ve been translated from the domain of darkness into the kingdom of God’s dear Son; that’s your new place in life. It’s the place called “Christ,” where you reign and rule with dominion over darkness.
If for example you’ve been experiencing demonic oppression at night or having nightmares, perhaps it’s because you didn’t know who you are and where you are. Now that you know, it should never happen again.
Jesus said, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). You don’t need deliverance; you got your deliverance when you came into Christ. The Bible says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature…” (2 Corinthians 5:17). Colossians 2:6 says, “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him” (NIV).
Live your life IN CHRIST! Carry the Christ-atmosphere everywhere you go. You’re shielded, protected and kept by His power in your new home (Christ). It has to become as real to you as the house in which you live physically. Become conscious of this and you’ll never know frustration or discouragement, fear, sickness, disease or infirmity.
You may say, “Pastor Chris, what if I’ve been born again for many years, but right now, I’m going through some trouble in my body?” Simple: with the understanding that you’re in Christ, and your authority in Him, just say, “In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I stand in that which belongs to me! I reject the pain! I reject the infirmity, and I stand strong in Christ!” Then wrap your arms around your body and say, “Body, comply!”
Your body has no option than to comply. You’re not in Satan’s domain; you’re in Christ, the place of great glory and dominion, with power over Satan, sickness, disease and death. Blessed be God!
I’ve been taken out of the power, dominion, control, and authority of darkness, into absolute safety! I live in the presence of God, and function with the dominion of Christ; I’m seated with Christ in the realm of glory—too far and too high from Satan’s domain! I’m superior to Satan! Hallelujah!

|| Colossians 1:12-14 AMPC “Giving thanks to the Father, Who has qualified and made us fit to share the portion which is the inheritance of the saints (God’s holy people) in the Light. 13 [The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 In Whom we have our redemption through His blood, [which means] the forgiveness of our sins.” ||
