Chapter One, Lesson Four
IN HIS KINGDOM Page
In His Kingdom
V.13 ** As this passage opens up to us we are told "He delivered
us". To whom is that referring?
God - the Father. cf. V.12 and the end of 13.
** From where did our Heavenly Father deliver us?
"...from the domain of darkness..."
** From a Biblical perspective, where is that?
Right here on earth! All see Matthew 4:8-11 cf. Luke 22:52-53 and Acts
** Do you recall from our study of Ephesians, any other passages which
refer to Satan's realm?
Ephesians 2:1-3 "...according to the course of this world, according
to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working
in the sons of disobedience..."
Ephesians 6:12 "For our struggle...is against the rulers, powers,
world forces of this darkness, the spiritual forces of wickedness in
the heavenly places."
According to Ephesians 2:3 we were controlled by Satan and described
as "children of wrath".
** Before we go any further in our passage, let's take a Biblical look
at how the Father delivered us from such a terrible plight.
1) Colossians 1:22 - He reconciled us to Himself in the body of Christ.
2) Galatians 1:15-16 - He set us apart, called us by His grace and
reveal His Son to us by faith.
Therefore we live for Christ...
3) Galatians 2:20 - "it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives
4) Galatians 6:14 - A total separation, "the world has been crucified
to me, and I to the world."
