The Lordship Of Jesus
Settles It All
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new
(2 Corinthians 5:17).
There’s no rationale or scriptural basis for the belief in certain Christian circles that as believers, we need deliverance from satanic bondage, witchcraft, ancestral or generational curses, etc. Colossians 1:13 says, we’ve been delivered, from the power of darkness, and have been translated into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son. Ignorance of this truth is the reason many are still so deliverance conscious.
Yes, the Bible teaches in Ephesians 2:12 that the situation of man before the advent of Christ was one of utter hopelessness. He was estranged from God, a doomed sinner, completely enslaved to satan. But God, because of His love-nature sent Jesus to save us from sin and satan. Jesus came to earth, bore the penalty of sin, broke its power and was raised from the dead in triumph over satan and sin.
Consequently, when you made Jesus your Lord, you received the very life and nature of God and became a new creation: “…..if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:”(2 Corinthians 5:17). This new man is not at all subject to satan. You’ve been delivered from the power of satan and have been made superior to him. So, if you’ve made Jesus your Lord, you’re now subject to Christ, and in Christ Jesus you’ve defeated satan and therefore cannot be subject to him.
Thus, it doesn’t matter whether you came from an idolatrous background or a family that practiced voodoo or witchcraft; you’re now a new creation in Christ! All the old contact and connections with the forces of evil in the past have been destroyed! The power of Christ, through the Lordship of Jesus has broken all of the power, influences and manipulations of the forces of darkness over your life. Thus, you can no longer be under the spell of generational or so-called ancestral curses; you don’t need deliverance from them.
What you need now is to make the Word of God the final authority in your life. Study the Word, get accurate teaching of the Word, so that you can increase in knowledge and be able to deal with the affairs of life as God would have you do.
I’m a new creation in Christ Jesus;
I’ve got the life and nature of God working in me! I’m thus more than a conqueror, I live in dominion over satan and this world for greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in this world. I experience victory in every area of my life today! Amen
