TUESDAY BIBLE STUDY
TOPIC: THE BELIEVER’S POSITION.
TEXT: Ephesians 2:1-6; 1: 17-23
You are welcome to our Tuesday Bible Study session.
Today, Our study has to do with OUR POSITION IN CHRIST. Many believers in ignorance allow the devil to intimidate them or even oppress them. If they only know that the devil is placed lower than them, they wouldn’t take any nonsense from him.
- OUR POSITION AS SINNERS: 2:1-3; 2Corinth. 4:3-4; Eph.4:17-19; Rom.6:16.
After the fall of Adam, man came under Satan and his fallen angels or demons. Man become slave and food for Satan. And as dust, Satan was given power to eat dust as his food. Man has no power or authority to resist or disobey the devil. His thoughts and mind were under the influence of Satan. His mind and eyes were spiritually blinded, man became a stranger to God and from the commonwealth of Israel. He was declared dead in sins and trespasses. He had not God and hence no hope for the future. If you are still in sin, this is your present condition. Unless you repent, you would take part in the judgment of Satan the devil.
2. THE MIRACULOUS CHANGE: Eph. 2:1-6; Isaiah 14:12-19, Luke 10:19
Salvation is a mystery and a miracle. It is the work of God’s grace. The moment one decides to repent from all his sins and accept Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Saviour, a miracle takes place.
- He is raised from death to life.
- He is raised from the grave to heavenly places far above the devil and his kingdom.
- He is brought out from under Satan’s feet to tread on Satan.
- He is brought out from Satan’s rule to reign and rule over Satan the devil.
There is a great change when you become born-again. Are you born-again?
- THE BELIEVER’S PRESENT POSITION: 1John 3:1-3; Eph. 2:4-7; Eph. 1:19-23
The believer’s present position in Christ is in heavenly places far above all kingdom of darkness. By this position, you are not supposed to suffer from the devil or to lack anything in life. It is a reigning and ruling position. This is an exalted position. See yourself there and operate from there.
