DEAD TO THE WORLD;
(You’re Not Subject To The Elements Of The World!)
TO THE BIBLE Colossians 2:20-21 CEV
“You died with Christ. Now the forces of the universe don’t have any power over you. Why do you live as if you had to obey such rules as, “Don’t handle this? Don’t taste that. Don’t touch this.”?”
When you were born again, you were delivered from the power of darkness and translated into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son (Colossians 1:13). You’re therefore no longer subject to the elements of this world. This means that you must refuse to be snowedunder by infirmities and harsh elements of this world that make life unbearable for the ordinary human being. From our opening scripture, it’s the baby in Christ—the spiritually immature—that can be subject to the elements of this world.
This is why you must keep growing in the Lord—unto a mature one in Christ. Then you’ll be knowledgeable enough to walk in the consciousness of your inheritance in Him. In John 8:32 the Lord Jesus said, “…you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” If you walk in ignorance of the truth of God’s Word, you’ll remain in bondage and suffer the same things that the people of the world suffer. You might even think that God is the one punishing you, but He isn’t. Why will He punish you after He has “punished” Jesus in your place? The Bible says, “…He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities…” (Isaiah 53:5). Your punishment was already laid on Jesus. Therefore, refuse to be dominated by cancer, diabetes, heart trouble, headaches, or any other kind of infirmity.
Rise up in your spirit and take the dominion. Tame the world with your faith-filled confessions and refuse to be discouraged. No system can work against you; you’re greater than them all; therefore, rise above them. The function above the system. You died with Christ, from the rudiments or elements of this world; so, refuse to be subject to them. You play by a different set of rules. Have this consciousness always.
15 looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of
bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;
16 lest there be any fornicator or [a]profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright.
17 For you know that afterward when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears.
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
I refuse to be subject to the elements of this world because greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. I take my place of authority in Christ and declare that the world is under my dominion, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
