“Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the
kingdom of his dear Son”
Colossians 1:13 KJV
While fellowshipping with God yesterday night, this particular scripture crossed my mind and I just kept saying it. One word that really caught my attention was the word-translated, and as I brood on it the Holy spirit gave a clearer understanding of what really took place on the Cross.
I later checked my mobile dictionary and the word “translate” is said to mean- restate(words) from one language into another.
Take for example, “I love you” in Mandarin Chinese is writen as ” 我爱你.”.
What on earth is that? Just kidding honey, but that gives us a clear understanding of what it really means to be translated/restated.
It means a complete change of state, and that, honey is what took place when you gave your life(actually, when received the God-life) to Christ.
No wonder scripture says in second Corinthians 5:17, that ” ..he is a new creation” completely new and old things have passed away!
“Anuoluwapo, that’s quite easy for you to say, I have been saved for years but nothing has changed…in fact, I didn’t think I am still born-again, I don’t feel different” You might say, but the truth is that you don’t have to feel born-again to be born-again!
In the same way ” 我爱你.” don’t feel like “I love you” , doesn’t make it invalid, infact if you ask any Chinese man, I bet he believes more in ” 我爱你.” then in the English translation!
Hence, your new state, honey, is a function of our faith(in Christ’s finished work) and not of our unstable feeling, plus the fact that you think nothing had changed about you is because salvation is first a spiritual birth before it becomes a physical manifestation as it were.
Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God, so the more you say “I am a new creation”, the more you hear it for yourself and the more it sinks into your being such that it can’t but be manifested in your actions.
Honey, because you are in Christ, you are a completely new creation and all the demons of hell put together can’t change that eternal reality!
Blessed by the post? Feel free to share with your communtity of family, friends & even enemies(wink*). Together, we take the WORD to the world!
