But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: (1 Peter 2:9).
The underlined portion of the verse above lets you know your present location; you’ve been brought out of darkness into God’s marvellous light. That light is the “light of life” that shows you the path of success, victory, and dominion. It’s like what the Lord did for the children of Israel back in the Old Testament; He brought them out of Egypt, which represented darkness, into the Promised Land, which symbolizes light!
Darkness represents sin, death, evil and all the negative things that are associated with Satan. Meaning that, you’ve been brought out of sin, sickness, disease, depression, poverty, frustrations and everything that’s of the devil, into God’s Kingdom of light. This isn’t something the Lord will do for you as you grow in Christ, He’s already done it. Colossians 1:12-13 says, “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.”
You’ve been brought into the supernatural life of glory, where you reign and rule in life over Satan and the cohorts of darkness by the power of the resurrected Christ. The day you made Jesus Lord of your life, you came into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son; it’s a spiritual
Kingdom where you reign in life by grace, through righteousness. There’s no darkness there; that’s why it’s called the Kingdom of Light!
The Kingdom to which you belong is superior to the kingdom of this world where sin, sickness, disease, and infirmities hold men in bondage. You’re not subject to the darkness and decadent systems and structures of this world; you belong to the heavenly Kingdom of God’s elect: it’s a land of glory, prosperity, beauty, honour, and excellence, where you partake of the glorious inheritance of the saints in light.
