Have you ever seen pictures of an old castle with big walls surrounding it?
That’s what we look like when we live in the world—the earth curse system.
The world tells us that we’ve got to fight to survive, and that we can only be secure by building our own kingdoms around us.
We keep ourselves busy trying to build castle walls around our lives so we can feel safe and secure. Our hope is that if we hoard enough money, we may finally get to the point of not having to worry anymore, of no longer having to run each day just to survive.
But God didn’t put Adam and Eve on the earth just to survive. They were put on the earth to rule.
When Adam turned his back on God, he lost his ability to rule over the earth realm, and he lost his identity! He lost his position, his authority, the security of the Kingdom and its legal process, and the promise of prosperity.
But Jesus paid off the law of sin and death and restored to you position, authority, the security of the Kingdom and its legal process, and the promise of prosperity.
Many people never learn this—they never discover who they are in Christ and have no clue of what Jesus did for them. They only know that they're going to heaven.
And Satan doesn’t mind that at all. He doesn’t care if you go to heaven. He just wants to make sure you don’t bring heaven into earth.
So he works hard to keep you from knowing your true identity.
A few years ago, my family went to New York for a vacation. I was on the beach enjoying the sun and water. Since the sun was so bright, I wore my sunglasses out into the water. I was only in waist-high water so I thought nothing about wearing them. Then, out of nowhere came a huge wave that washed entirely over me and my sunglasses were gone.
Now, those sunglasses were my favorite pair, and I didn’t want to lose them. I immediately cried out, “No! In the name of Jesus, I will not lose those glasses! Holy Spirit, show me where they are!” I then asked my two daughters who were on the trip with me to help me find them. We walked all around and felt the bottom with our feet. After 20 minutes, I went back up to the shore and sat down with my wife, Drenda, telling her what had happened and that I was not going to lose those glasses. My plan was to go back out and look for them again, but Drenda suggested that we go for a walk first and then she would help me.
We walked down the beach about 3/4 of a mile. Just as we were about to turn around and head back, a wave rolled in. I was shocked to see my sunglasses sliding in with that wave. They skidded to a stop at my feet! Drenda and I just looked at each other in shock!
Friend, we have authority in the Kingdom! We have position, seated with Christ in heavenly realms. And, you know what? If you’re seated with Christ, that makes you a king in the earth realm. And kings rule!
Kings decree, or speak, to get things done. Sound familiar?
Proverbs 18:21 says the tongue has the power of life and death. Now you know why. God wants you to rule over Satan in the earth realm. He wants you to set the captives free and declare the good news of His Kingdom to everyone.
