When God made the heavens and the earth, He made them good.
There was no evil, corruption, sickness, famine, death, etc. Everything was beautiful and in abundance. Man reigned on earth as lord because he was given dominion and authority by God. However, man lost this position when he surrendered his authority to the devil by obeying the lies of the devil and sinning against God. Thus the devil became the god of this world.
However, because the loving nature of God, He set out to redeem man back to Himself and restore back his lost glory and in the process render the devil powerless. The price to be paid was with blood. In the Old Testament, the blood of animals was used by the priest to cover the sins of men. Though this satisfied the laws of God at the time, it was not enough. The price for sin needed to be paid once and for ever.
In line with this, God had to come in the form of man in the person of His Son Jesus Christ, who had no sin nature in His blood to pay the price. He had no sin in His blood by virtue of His manner of conception. To accomplish this task, Jesus had to shed His sinless blood. He had to die, buried and resurrected. This He did to reconcile man back to God.
Before Jesus could get this victory for man, He had to suffer. He was arrested, tried by men that He created, was beaten, spat at, mocked, scourged, a crown of thorns was put on His head, He was nailed to the cross and crucified (Matt. 26-28). When this was happening satan thought he had won but now we know better that the devil is a liar because the bible states that “And having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it” (Col. 2:15). Thus, the devil lost his authority over you. He was stripped of every kind of power that he had by Jesus.
Let’s see now some of the truths of resurrection power. In Matt. 27:50-52, the bible says, Jesus, when He had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And behold the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom and the earth did quake and the rocks rent; and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose”. Thus, no one must remain in the pit whereon there is no water. Your dream of escape is established. It is illegal for you to remain in the grave of satan when the price for your escape has been fully paid. Whatever grave you have been shut up in, know that you are coming out today.
Eph. 1:19-20; 2:1, shows that when Jesus resurrected from the grave, He raised us up together with Him and made us to seat with Him in heavenly places. So the mighty act of God which raised Christ from the dead also raised His body (the church). Furthermore, the very act that seated Christ also seated His body. Christ is seated at the Father’s own right hand. Therefore, we are seated at the Father’s own right hand, which is the place of authority. Thus our position changed by Jesus resurrection.
The mystery of resurrection is the translation of the believers from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of His dear Son, which is the kingdom of light. Where we are in heavenly places, satan is not permitted to prevail. The good news of resurrection is that you are no longer where you used to be. We live in heaven with God who dwells in the light that no man can approach unto. How then could darkness (satan) survive there. Can the Nigerian Police arrest you in America? NO. They don’t have any legal right to do so. Their authority is only within Nigeria. So it is with the devil. Since you are no longer under satan’s dominion, his agent cannot arrest you where you are because they cannot get there again.
The reality of resurrection indicates that we have been conferred with the power of choice. Whatever we bind on earth shall be bound in heaven. Thus, only what we permit and not the devil will happen. Engage the resurrection power and put an end to the false power of satan. Begin to walk in the power of resurrection that is now available to you and the devil will not be able to lie to you. I command you to resurrect in newness of life, power, riches, health, prosperity and life more abundantly. God bless you, our great nation Nigeria. Happy Easter.
You can only find the resurrected life by first accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior if you have not already done so. Pray this simple prayer. Father, you said that whosoever shall call on the name of Jesus, shall be saved. I call on the name Jesus. Please forgive my sin and cleanse me from every form of unrighteousness. Fill me with the power of the Holy Spirit. Thank you for saving me and giving me the gift of eternal life. I praise you and give you all the glory.
