INVESTIGATE

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 26:16-18

** 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. (Colossians 2:9)

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 in me"

4) Galatians 6:14 - A total separation, "the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world."
