Colossians 1:12-14 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
The human condition; we need deliverance.
How did we get here? Quite simply you were born into this kingdom of darkness! The word kingdom does not mean a location somewhere out there like a fairy tale kingdom with castles and moats and drawbridges, princes and princesses. Kingdom refers to the rule, reign, and power of a king. The ruler of this world is Satan. While Christ’s death and resurrection defanged and defeated Satan he has not been vanquished. That is why Peter writes “Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”
