If you received Jesus as your personal Savior. By believing in your heart & confessing by your mouth that He is Lord over you & He is the Son of God. You are now from the family of God. I want to tell you about the privileges that you have now. Because if you didn't know it you will not take it. So I want to concentrate on what you ALREADY have now as a result that you prayed the prayer of salvation.
1. You are son of God, because you are born from God HIMSELF. John 1:12
Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them he gave power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
You were 100% HUMAN only, but now you are 100% divine plus 100% human.
Hey this came in 2 Peter 1 : 4.
2Pe 1:4 Whereby are given to us exceeding great and precious promises; that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
2. Also you have an INHERITANCE it's kept in heaven but you take it from here on earth this inheritance includes HEALING & PROSPERITY.
God wants you to live here in the best life as any father wants his son to live the best life.
1Pe 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again to a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
3. Also you are now a NEW CREATURE, NEW TYPE of man. How is that ? Yea, people can watch a movie & see a strange creature from the space coming to the earth & marry a lady & she become pregnant of strange CREATURE which is not a human & when she deliver him, he will deal like his father(the strange & people believe such movies. But let me tell you something, we (Christians) are of the same story.
The word "NEW CREATURE" in 2 Corinthians 5 : 17 it came in the Greek: a new type or another type of man or another species (Species is a word said about the kinds of creatures like the Human is not from the species of monkeys.)
2Co 5:17 Therefore, if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature: old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
You are a new type, GODLY, DIVINE kind of man.
4. All the old things has passed away. The old things means the old nature of sin that was in you has passed away, your sins has passed away. You became RIGHTEOUSNESS of God. Yes because of your faith you became righteous LIKE God. And this is by BELIEVING not by your actions that you did or will do. That's what the Bible is saying about you read verse
2Co 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
5. You became IN HIM. You belong to God. You are called by His name: brother or sister the son of God.
You can read the epistles & underline all the words " In Him… Through Him … By Him " and relate it yourself it's yours.
"Him" is speaking about Jesus. The Bible isn't speaking about another one, he is speaking about you... YOU… YOU are SON OF GOD.
Let me add another privilege that you Jesus did for you.
6. God has delivered you from the hands of devil & TRANSFERRED you to HIS KINGDOM.
This kingdom you study the Bible you will find, it's a wonderful kingdom. Full of joy & blessings for you here on EARTH & in HEAVEN.
Col 1:12 Giving thanks to the Father, who hath made us meet (Qualified in the Greek) to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his beloved Son:
Notice all are of past tense, it's happened when you prayed that prayer. It happened in your human spirit not your body & when you feed your spirit from the word, you will let that out from your spirit to the body.
Devil has nothing over you, Jesus defeated devil for your sake. You are now more than conqueror in Jesus Christ .
Rom 8:37 But in all these things we are more than conquerors, through him that loved us.
Jesus didn't want to defeat devil, He did that FOR YOU & ME. Glory be to God.
7. You have an eternal life in you now that begins here on earth & guarantee your assurance to go to heaven.
But let me tell you that you by receiving Jesus you are already in heaven. It came in John 17 : 3
Joh 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they may know thee (And you did so by prayer of salvation) the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.
Hey now you can live HEAVEN ON EARTH through Jesus Christ that you are in now.
Dear brother there's a lot about the decision that you took I wrote briefly.
Congratulations for you are PRECIOUS & your life will never be the same as it was, because Jesus is in you now.
All what you want is not praying the prayer of salvation again for God has accepted you. But all what you want is:
1. To KNOW & DISCOVER your rights & inheritance in this new kingdom (It's spiritual Kingdom but it's REAL as the waves of the TV are real but unsen) . This comes by studying the word of God & Christian books.
2. TAKE your inheritance which MEETS all of your needs that may face anybody on the earth.
