ROMANS 1:16. For I am not ashamed of the Gospel (good news)of Christ, for it is God’s power working unto salvation [For deliverance from eternal death] to everyone who believes with personal trust and a confident surrender and firm reliance, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
ROMANS 8:1-2. THEREFORE, [there is ]now no condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live [and] walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after dictates of the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has freed me from the law of sin and death.
1CORINTHIANS 3:11.For no other foundation, can anyone lay than that which is [already] laid, which is Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One ).
*If you are Spiritually born again according to 2CORINTHIANS 5:17. Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah ) he is a new creation ( a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!
*That you are a citizen of the kingdom of God , you are Spiritually qualified by reason of your righteousness which you have received in Christ Jesus. He laid the foundation for our salvation with His Own Life. He paid the price with His Life. God in His redemption arrangement had delivered us from the old covenant of bondage and dominion of sickness, disease, poverty, lack, sorrow, defeat, pain, barrenness. As you departed from the kingdom of bondage and darkness, you left behind everything that is associated with that kingdom and God Almighty Spiritually planted you in His kingdom with grace inheritance.
*You have Spiritually embraced the new life in Christ Jesus which you received from God, a life full of grace with the blessing. Paul speaking from insightful revelation knowledge that he is not ashamed of the Gospel, because in the Gospel is the power of salvation.
*To be born again is one thing, knowing that you are Spiritually born again and walking, operating according to the word of God is another thing. If you Spiritually develop yourself with the word of God regularly and with keen interest in your heart you will experience it. This new life in Christ Jesus is Divine miracle, it is the power of the Gospel that made this possible.
*Paul said by revelation knowledge that Christ Jesus laid down His Own Life as the foundation for our redemption. He paid the ransom price with His Life. Therefore glorify God with your body because you are now Spiritually the temple of the Holy Spirit.This is beautiful. Thank You Lord Jesus Christ for what You have done for humanity.
*His commitment to pay the price was an agreement reached between Him and Father God based on the basis of love to redeemed mankind from bondage of darkness.
*Salvation is a free gift from God, but to remain in salvation there is a price you must be willing to pay.
*GOD’S WILL CONCERNING YOU IS THAT YOU SHOULD NATURALLY EXPERIENCE SWEETNESS IN LIFE.
To experience this new life which you have received from Christ Jesus.
To experience His promise naturally, you need to have revelation knowledge of His will from the written word of God, you need to understand also that what He has said in His written word is true.
*HEALTHY LIVING NATURALLY IS THE PRODUCT OF HEALTHY MEDITATION. Your thought is a great contributor to your life style naturally.
*3John 2. Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and [ that your body ] may keep well, even as[ I know] your soul keeps well and prospers.
*If anyone on earth addresses you as beloved it might be for that moment but here is God Almighty the creator of heaven and earth addressing you as beloved. It takes a father whose love is real to address his child as beloved. God loves you. He has given to you His Own Life which you now live in the flesh. Jesus Christ said, I am the way, the truth and the life, this is the reason for coming to the world to saved the world.
*John10:10. The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows ).
Satan is the author of bondage, his system is of full of pain, sorrow, he is the author of darkness.
But He came for one purpose to set the captive free from bondage. He came to restore us back to the original place of life full of soundness; prosperity in every area of your life naturally, success in every area of your life naturally, victory in every area of your life naturally, good health in your body.
*1JOHN 3:8. [But] he who commits sin [ who practices evil doing] is of the devil [ takes his character from the evil one], for the devil has sinned (violated the divine law ) from the beginning. The reason the Son of God was made manifest (visible ) was to undo (destroy, loosen, and dissolve ) the works of the devil [ has done ].
*Foundation determines the building. The plan of God on how you should live in this world has already been made, heaven is expecting you to follow the instructions of grace to enable you receive from grace the blessing made available to you in Christ Jesus. The foundation you are Spiritually standing on is righteousness, for you are made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. You cannot buy eternal life with money, your good work of the flesh cannot give to you salvation. For only by grace you can be saved.
*EPHESIANS 1:4-6. Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own ] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love. For He fore ordained us ( destined us, planned in love for us ) to be adopted ( revealed )as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of His will [because it pleased Him and was His kind intent ] [so that we might be] to the praise and the commendation of His glorious grace (favour and mercy), which He so freely bestowed on us in the beloved.
*Walking in the light of this truth will make you enjoy kingdom’s sweet provision on earth. He laid the foundation for your good life with Himself. He has delivered you from bondage of darkness and destruction, set you upon the rock, put a new song in your mouth that you should praise Him for what He has done.This is the demonstration of His affection to you. If you Spiritually have the Son of God, you equally have zoe [the God kind of life].The foundation is Spiritually solid. The foundation is Spiritually correct. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so whom He has delivered from the dominion of destruction.
*Deuteronomy 7:8. But because the LORD loves you and because He would keep the oath which He had sworn to your fathers, the LORD had brought you out with mighty hand and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
*This is the truth that who the Son sets free is completely free. Now in Christ Jesus you have good life full of soundness. You were not delivered from bondage to another bondage instead you were transferred from bondage into the kingdom with excellent condition of living naturally. Because God loves you.
*You are an extension of the kingdom on earth. How can you access this great promises of the kingdom?

The word is living and it has power to transform you as you make commitment to embrace the kingdom principles by faith.The truth is that we are already in the kingdom but lack of true knowledge of the written word of God the devil can still be in charge in our lives.
The work He did at the cross Spiritually has given us access to eternal life. Abraham was looking for a city whose foundation is of God. Are you looking for a solid foundation were you can find security and protection? Christ Jesus is the sure foundation. Peace.
