VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. From dominion of darkness

"[The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness"

Romans 13:12 (Amplified Bible)

The night is far gone and the day is almost here. Let us then drop (fling away) the works and deeds of darkness and put on the [full] armor of light.

1 Thessalonians 5:24 (Amplified Bible)

Faithful is He Who is calling you [to Himself] and utterly trustworthy, and He will also do it [fulfill His call by hallowing and keeping you].

Ephesians 5:8 (Amplified Bible)

For once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of Light [lead the lives of those native-born to the Light].

There's a new system that is flowing in, on and thru us, that's GOD's System, no longer the system of dominion of darkness. The children of this world have no choice, whether they do bad or good, they're inside a prison, a dominion that they can't see because their minds are blinded by the god of this world, even if they can see it, they can't remove it from themselves without the shedding of the blood, that's one time move that they can't take advantage of, because they will die. But CHRIST has done something by His own Precious blood, He redeemed us from this prison, translated us, delivered us and drawn us to Himself whereby it's a new control, it's a new system of dominion, that's GOD's.

B. Into the Kingdom of the Son He loves

"and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,"

Philippians 2:10 (Amplified Bible)

That in (at) the name of Jesus every knee should (must) bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

Hebrews 1:8 (Amplified Bible)

But as to the Son, He says to Him, Your throne, O God, is forever and ever (to the ages of the ages), and the scepter of Your kingdom is a scepter of absolute righteousness (of justice and straightforwardness).

Revelation 11:15 (Amplified Bible)

The seventh angel then blew [his] trumpet, and there were mighty voices in heaven, shouting, The dominion (kingdom, sovereignty, rule) of the world has now come into the possession and become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ (the Messiah), and He shall reign forever and ever (for the eternities of the eternities)!

This is the new system that is in control of us, but it's not slaving us, but giving us freedom, we can say it's the new system of freedom that sets us free, now we are inside this Kingdom of the SON, whatever good or bad we do in this life, it's all covered up by the blood of the LAMB that was slain for us, translating us into this New Kingdom. It's all love that binds us together, setting us free to do GOD's Will and we enjoy it doing.

C. Redemption and forgiveness of sins

"In Whom we have our redemption through His blood, [which means] the forgiveness of our sins."

1. Redemption means "ransom in full", "repurchase", "release", "salvation", "deliverance"
