Adoption into God’s Kingdom

When Meghan Markle married Prince Harry of the United Kingdom on May 19th 2018, she became a bonafide member of the British royal family. As a virtue of her adoption into the British kingdom through marriage, she seized to be a commoner and she began a new life entirely. She has a new name, a new title the Duchess of Sussex and a new set of rules to help guide her and settle her into her new identity in the British empire.

This process is the same for anybody who genuinely surrenders their life to God through a set of confession of sin, believing in Jesus Christ and proclaiming him as their Lord and personal saviour. They are drafted from darkness into the kingdom of light, they seize from being a sinner, they become a child of God among the saints through adoption and they become a bonafide member of the Kingdom of God.

When this adoption takes place, they have a new name as a child of God and they become part of a bigger family in the body of Christ. No longer will they behave or think in the same way as of old but they adopt new ways of thinking and doing things as Christians. And just as a father secures the future of his children so does God align things in place to secure your future in his kingdom. You will find yourself endowed with spiritual blessings that enable you to settle in your new identity in Christ.

You may not know this but some of the things that takes place as soon as your adoption into God’s family is completed is that your sins are forgiven. You will have a new name. You are given a new image. You are given a new mind that enables you to think differently and see things from a different perspective. You are given a new heart in preparation for the fight in the world. God also writes your name in the book of life. You inherit an eternal life through Christ. You get to share in the inheritance of God’s firstborn son – Jesus Christ. You become an heir apparent with Christ Jesus.

Knowing these things sometimes help solidifies one’s stand in the kingdom and it strengthens one’s faith in God. Whenever anything comes to threaten your identity in the kingdom or it want to shift your focus away from God or from your new future, feel free to reach out to the following sets of scriptural declarations and speak them over yourself until you feel strengthened, enabled and prepared for a lifetime in the kingdom for eternity.

SCRIPTURES
1) …and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14).
2) I appeal to you, therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
3) even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him (Ephesians 1:4).
4) For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them (Ephesians 2:10).
5) I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me (Galatians 2:20).
6) And, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6:18)
7) But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God. Formerly, when you did not know God, you were enslaved to those that by nature are not gods (Romans 8:14-17).
8) For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
9) The nations will see your righteousness, And all kings your glory; And you will be called by a new name Which the mouth of the LORD will designate (Isaiah 62:2).
10) See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him (1 John 3:1-2).
11) For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God (Romans 8:14).
12) For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:26).
13) and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him (Romans 8:17).
14) so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life (Titus 3:7).
15) So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household, (Ephesians 2:19).

Declarations of Faith for New Christians

Doubt may set in. Confusion may find its way to you. Friends may mock you. The family may dissuade you. Colleagues at work or an acquaintance may taunt you. It’s all the ploy of the enemy to shift your focus away from the true God. It’s all a plan of the devil to make you afraid of the glorious future ahead of you. The devil does not let go easily. When he sees that you have made the beeline to turn your life around for the best and you have accepted Christ as your Lord and saviour, he will try all in his capacity to deceive, tempt and lure you out of God’s marvellous light.

The devil’s tactic is to steal, to kill and to destroy and he will try all sort to stop you from believing in God but do not give in. Stand firm in your faith. When you find yourself tempted, facing trials and tribulations, do not falter. When your sheer willpower can no longer support your belief in God, then make a beeline for the word of God and speak the following biblical declarations to strengthen your faith in God.

3 Biblical Declarations For New Christians To Affirm Their Identity in Christ

Now that you are born anew, you no longer belong to the world.  You are now a child of light (1 Thessalonians 5:5). You belong to the heavenly kingdom. The race of life set before you (Hebrews 12:1) may sometimes get overwhelming and the enemy may come trying to steal treasures within (John 10:10). The Christian journey is exciting but there are times when you may need to affirm your identity in Christ in order to win the battle ahead (Mathew 4:1-11). As a new Christian, you may find yourself in self-doubt and unbelief over your new found faith, this is when biblical declarations come in handy.

When you find yourself faced with opposition from your most loved and trusted friend or family, when you find yourself slipping back into the old habit and this has led to guilt and condemnation, get ready to fight through this war over your mind and soul. Get ready to dig deep into the word of God and fight the good fight of faith for your salvation. Get ready for an adventure with the light of the world, Jesus Christ (John 8:12). Get ready to leave the rat race behind and to win the race ahead through the denial of self, carrying your cross and following Christ all the way (Matthew 16:24-26).

When you strap your helmet of salvation to your head, the breastplate of righteousness to your chest, the sandals of good news to your feet and the sword of the spirit in your hands, you will have no reason to doubt yourself but to live in victory and overcome the wiles of the the devil and his cohorts.

The following biblical declarations will help you to affirm your true identity in Christ and help build your confidence in Christ Jesus.
