Redemption turned the believer into a sign and a wonder; an individual that the human mind cannot comprehend Isa. 8:18; Jn. 3:18. In essence, at salvation the believer was born with the capacity to manifest the supernatural in him. The supernatural in the believer has to be unlocked before it can find manifestation in his life Jn. 5:2-4. Revelation of who we are in redemption is the key to unlock the supernatural in the believer Jn. 1:19-23; 8:23; 3:31.
Who is the Believer in Redemption?
At the point of salvation, the position of the believer was changed. He is translated from the earthly realm to the heavenly places where Christ is Eph. 2:5-6. The scriptures show us that the heavenly places put the believer far above everything in the earth, thereby putting him in command in life.
When in the kingdom of darkness, one is bound to stumble, fail and fall Jn. 12:35; 11:9-10. Redemption translated the believer from darkness into light, as a child of light Col. 1:13-14. Now, we have the privilege not to stumble in life again because we have light Jn. 11:9-12.
Redemption did not only bring a believer into the kingdom of light, it turns the believer to the light in the midst of the dark world Mat. 5:13; Eph. 5:8. As light, the believer is now unstoppable by the power of darkness Jn. 1:1-5.
The scriptures present Christ as the bright and morning star and at salvation every believer become like Christ Rev. 22:16; Jn. 17:18. This means that redemption turns the believer from whatever he used to be into a star in life. When the believer commits to turning men to righteousness, his star rises to shine Dan. 12:3.
At salvation, the believer renounces Satan, the life of sin, and receives Jesus to live in him thereafter Rev. 3:20. In essence, Christ the wisdom and power of God now lives in the believer 1Cor. 1:24. This turns the believer into a wonder to his world Col. 1:27-28.
In conclusion, this is the hope of the believer, the understanding that his detachment from sin and the world, gives him the opportunity to a higher, better and greater dimension of life in Christ 1Jn. 3:1-4.
To anyone reading this that will love to give his/her life to Christ, pray this prayer out loud with me from your heart: “Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins; wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for
Father in the name of Jesus, I receive the help of the Holy Spirit to manifest the supernatural nature in me from today Acts 1:8.
