“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ”
[1 Corinthians 3:11].
|Dear friend, by being born again, you are translated from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light according to God’s Word. You see, to be born again is the best thing that can ever happen to you. Speaking on this issue in his letter to the Christians in Colossae, Paul tells us that: “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son” [Colossians 1:12-13].|
Similarly, Apostle Peter asserts this biblical truth when he tells us that “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light” [1 Peter 2:9].Dear friend, by being born again, you are translated from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light according to God’s Word. You see, to be born again is the best thing that can ever happen to you. Speaking on this issue in his letter to the Christians in Colossae, Paul tells us that: “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son” [Colossians 1:12-13].
It’s important to state that both Paul and Peter are referring to the new spiritual condition of those who have been born again. This means two things: firstly, by being born again your spiritual territory changes instantly and secondly, you’re totally freed from the dominion of darkness.
The implication of this is that through being born again by accepting Jesus into your heart as your Lord and Saviour, you access a spiritual relocation. That means checking out of your former territory in order to enter a new territory offered by God. This, however, insinuates that when you get born again, you have a new foundation, which is Christ, because when you left the former territory controlled by Satan, you didn’t carry the foundation along. That’s why God’s Word teaches that “And no one can ever lay any other real foundation than that ONE WE ALREADY HAVE – JESUS CHRIST” [1 Corinthians 3:11 TLB].
So do you still have problems with the issue of “Foundation”? Do you still believe that even though you’re a Christian you still need to keep going for powerful sessions of deliverance from a thwarted family foundation?
Well, you must have been wrongly taught. 1 Corinthians 3:11; Colossians 1:12-13 and 1 Peter 2:9 give us a vivid picture of the stand of God’s Word on this.
My suggestion is that you stick with God’s Word instead of building your spiritual life around people’s opinion. Apostle Peter warns us thus: “And remember why he is waiting. He is giving us time to get his message of salvation out to others. Our wise and beloved brother Paul has talked about these things in many of his letters. Some of his comments are not easy to understand, and there are people who are deliberately stupid, and always demand some unusual interpretation – they have twisted his letters around to mean something quite different from what he meant, just as they do the other parts of the Scripture – and the result is disaster for them” [2 Peter 3:15-16 TLB].
Being born again disconnects you supernaturally from every evil satanic foundation that you were ever a part of; and this happens instantly not some time in the future. Anything different from this biblical truth is a lie from Satan that’s meant to keep you in perpetual bondage.
In Christ, you have a new, better, and real foundation, with a lot of foundation blessings for you to enjoy. In Christ you have been translated from Satan’s evil foundation and all its foundation problems like: generational curses, sicknesses, premature death, evil cycle and stagnation, to a new foundation with foundation blessings.
That’s why in Christ, God’s Word teaches that you have been blessed with all spiritual blessings [Ephesians 1:3]. Where you were under a curse in Satan’s foundation, now that you’re born again, you have access to unlimited blessings in Christ’s foundation; where you had stagnation in Satan’s foundation; in Christ you have been given supernatural speed. Christ’s victory is now your victory, His success is now your success.
What you actually need is to build up intimacy with Jesus. What I mean is that you need to be Jesus-conscious. Focus on Jesus and His finished work and not on Satan and his activities. This is Apostle Paul’s admonition to every Christian: “And now just as you trusted Christ to save you, trust him, too, for each day’s problems; live in vital union with him. Let your roots grow down into him and draw up nourishment from him. See that you go on growing in the Lord, and become strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught. Let your lives overflow with joy and thanksgiving for all he has done” [Colossians 2:6-7 TLB].
You see, that’s your responsibility.
If you’re reading this piece and you’re not yet born again, that means you have no part in the blessings stemming from the new foundation, because you still belong to the old foundation of darkness, generational curses, sickness, poverty, and the like. In order to be incorporated in Christ’s new foundation, you need to be born again first. That’s where it begins. Doing that is pretty simple. Just pray the following prayer of faith:
“Dear God, according to Romans 4:25, I believe in my heart that Jesus died for my sins, and rose again to make me right with you, in order to fill me with your goodness. I also confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord. Today, I accept Jesus into my heart as my Personal Lord and Saviour.
In accordance with Romans 10:10, which say if I believe with my heart and confess with my mouth, I will be saved, I know that from now henceforth: I am born again; I am a new creation in Christ, old things are passed away, behold, all things have become new. I have the very life of God in me; I am God’s righteousness in Christ. I am lifted with Christ and together we are seated in heaven at the right hand of the Father, far, far above principalities and powers. Just as Christ is, so am I in this world, in Jesus’ Name”. Amen.
