You Are A Citizen of Heaven
PHILIPPIANS 3:20 NRSV 20 But our citizenship is in heaven, and it is from there that we are expecting a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
As a believer in Jesus Christ, you have a new citizenship. Your name is written in Heaven. Heaven is your homeland.
Because you are its citizen, Heaven is responsible for you. If necessary, Heaven will send its soldiers (angels) to assist you, and when necessary, to evacuate you.
Although we live on earth, we operate under the laws of our homeland, Heaven, as well as the laws of earth.
As a citizen you have certain rights and obligations. To understand them you need to read the Bible with the help of illumination by the Holy Spirit. You need to ask the Lord to teach you and give you understanding of these things.
COLOSSIANS 1:13 NRSV 13 He has rescued us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son,
As believers, we are no longer under the authority or control of the devil. We have been transferred into a new kingdom.
One of our rights as citizens of Heaven is to resist the devil and all his works. Anything that is of the devil, we do not have to submit to.
SAY THIS: I am a citizen of Heaven. Jesus is my Lord and King!
