Fundamental Divine Rights
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage
In the concept of nationhood as it is in the world, the fundamental human right of the individual citizen is a much celebrated ideology. Citizens are required to know their fundamental human rights so they can take advantage of such rights and privileges. These are rights and freedoms to which all humans are entitled.
Such entitlements can exist as shared norms of actual human moralities, as justified moral norms or natural rights supported by strong reasons, or as legal rights either at a national level or within international law. However, as important as it may be for you to know your fundamental human rights and pursue them, there’s something far superior and more worthy for you to pursue and take advantage of, and that’s your “fundamental divine rights.”
If you’re born again, then you automatically belong in God’s country called Zion, with divine rights and privileges: “But ye are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem…” (Hebrews 12:22-24). So, look beyond your natural human rights to the glorious heavenly blessings, rights and privileges of those who are born into God’s Kingdom! Just as it’s wrong for your fundamental human rights to be violated, God doesn’t want anything or anyone to violate your divine rights, such as the right to live in health, prosperity, victory, success, dominion and excellence; the right to reign and rule over the circumstances of life and exercise dominion over satan and the powers of darkness.
To best explore and take advantage of your fundamental divine rights, privileges and inheritance in Christ, you’d have to study God’s Word, for that’s our heavenly bill of rights and manual for daily living. In it, you’d discover who you are, what you have, and what you can do in Christ. You don’t need to beg God, or pray till hell freezes over to begin enjoying these rights and other blessings in Christ Jesus, they are yours NOW; they’re your present hour-possessions. So lay claims to them and begin to enjoy them.
I belong in God’s superior class of divine beings; therefore I look beyond the natural realm of existence to my heavenly rights, blessings and provisions in Christ Jesus! I recognize today and take hold of my divine right to live in health, prosperity, victory, success, dominion and excellence! I thank you Lord Jesus, for giving me the right to reign and rule over the circumstances of life and exercise dominion over satan
