To the contemporary Christian, salvation is about Jesus Christ saving the soul from sin and eternal death. This limited view has kept believers the world over in a state of perennial mediocrity. The one who dares to believe the Bible will see that it is much more – it is not only about being saved from sin and eternal death, but about being saved from sickness, Satan and the curse as well. It does not end there – it also includes being placed in a divine union with Jesus Christ when we were baptized (Rom 6:3). There is more good news – Salvation is Christ Jesus living in me, transforming me into his likeness, expressing himself through me and bearing fruit through me.
When I received Christ, I was instantly delivered from the dominion of darkness and transferred to the dominion of Jesus, who exercises that dominion by the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit has dominion over my spirit, soul and body. Therefore, sin cannot have dominion over me. Sickness, disease or pain cannot have dominion over me. Satan cannot have dominion over me. The curse cannot have dominion over me. Death cannot have dominion over me.
Through the Holy Spirit, I exercise dominion over sin, sickness, Satan and the curse.
