But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Phillipians 3:20 English Standard Version
Each day as you awake and even as you go to sleep, are you aware that you are a citizen of Heaven? I did not say you are going to be I said YOU ARE a citizen of Heaven. Your true home and existence is Heaven and you are here on the Earth as an alien, a sojourner. Things used to be different when you were a sinner. Then you were an alien to Heaven but Jesus changed all that. Now you are a citizen of Heaven with full rights and benefits. So what does this citizenship from Heaven provide? All that Heaven has which includes God the Father and The Lord Jesus Christ. You have been sent here as an ambassador, a diplomat. When a diplomat visits a foreign country he or she has certain benefits and rights. They have an embassy that is declared to be the same as their own foreign soil. They enjoy all the benefits of their home country right there in that foreign country. They also have something called diplomatic immunity. The same rules and laws that apply to the citizens of that country do not apply to them as diplomats. They have immunity from certain laws and restrictions. Guess what? So do you!!!!
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:2 King James Version
As a believer you have diplomatic immunity from the law of sin and death through Christ Jesus. Sin has no more dominion over you and neither does death. When you know this and you exercise your rights as a child of God and a citizen of Heaven all the power of God and the angels of Heaven which are a part of the finished work of Christ go to work for you.
Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. Romans 6:8-9 For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace. Romans 6:14 English Standard Version But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. Romans 6:22 English Standard Version
So as a citizen of Heaven we have the same rights and privileges as Jesus Himself. There is no sickness in Heaven so you have diplomatic immunity from sickness because Jesus already bore every sickness that you would have ever encountered. There is no lack in Heaven because Jesus bore your lack on the cross when he was stripped naked and had nothing in the natural while on the cross as well as God the Father forsook Him so that He will never forsake you. Now understand satan is a bully and just because its illegal doesn’t mean he will just back off. Earlier today I had to declare my rights as sinus or allergy type symptoms tried to manifest. I said, “In the Name of Jesus whatever this is go from me. Vacate my premises.” I could sense it leave and the sneezing went away. He will try to see if you know your rights and are willing to enforce his defeat that Jesus already executed. If you don’t he will do everything to you that you will allow. Notice I said that you will allow not that God the Father will allow. It’s the devil, God does not have any sickness or disease or lack to give you. Its illegal to break into someone’s home but people still do it. Do you get my point? So know who you are and exercise your authority ALL THE TIME!!! You ARE a citizen of Heaven NOW. Not when you get there.
All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!
