God Has Given You Diplamatic Immunity

Every child of God should know their rights and privledges as a child of God. You have certain rights and privledges but if you don’t know about them you can’t exercise them. You don’t have to accept or tolerate everything the devil sends your way. You don’t have to accept every plaque that comes upon the land. Like the Egyptains and the children of Isreal God said I will put a difference between my people and thy people (Exodus 8:23) that is like the world and the children of God. God has put a difference between you and the world. How did God put a difference between you and the world the same way He did then, by his word. A way I like to say it is God has given you Diplomatic Immunity. When you have Diplomatic Immunity the rulers of the land have no rule over you only it’s citizens. And God has translated you out of the kingdom of darkness and into the kingdom of his dear son (Colossians 1:13). You are a citizen of the kingdom of God (Philippians 3:20). You walk this earth but you are in the world but not of the world. You are a Diplomat, you are ambassadors for Christ (2Corinthians 5:20). You have all of the Kingdom of God behind you and his kingdom ruleth over all (Psalms 103:19). So you don’t have to worry about H1N1(Swine Flu) or any other kind of Flu because the Kingdom of God says- No plague will come near you (Psalms 91:10). You don’t have to worry about recession because the Kingdom of God says- you shall be satisfied (Psalms 37:18,19). You don’t have to worry about crime because the Kingdom of God says- his angels have charge over you in all your ways (Psalms 91:11). But what do you have to say, as an ambassador for Christ you have to say as Christ would say and Jesus only spoke the words of his father. With your heart you believe and with the mouth confession is made unto (Romans 10:10). What your kingdom says is forever settled in heaven (Psalms 119:89) now you have to settle it in you. Satan’s kingdom is an inferior kingdom your kingdom rules over all. The devil has no right to do anything to you and when he does he has to deal with your government (kingdom). You have an entire government (kingdom) behind you waiting on you to claim your rights. The devil no longer has rule over you. Exercise your rights.

  1. I think sometimes when we take teaching on rights and privileges in Christ to the extreme; we might actually end up doing more harm than good. I know quite few people that have become bitter against the Lord simply because there prayers were not answered or not in the time or manner they expected. Yes it is true that there are wonderful promises of God in the bible, however I feel we need to take a more balance approach. See Daniel 3:17-18
    17If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
    18But if not, be it known unto thee, O king that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
    Some seem to think that once they know who there are in Christ. There will not experience any kind of affliction from the enemy. Scriptures indicate that this is not so. Lets look at some examples in the new testament.
    a. Jesus was stoned went he said before Abraham was, I AM the scriptures do not give any account of the stones not touching him
    b. Stephen was not delivered from the people that stoned him, I find it hard to believe that he did not know his authority
    c. James was killed early in the book of acts and Peter was put in jail.
    d. Satan hindered Apostle Paul on a few occasions 1 thesalonians2 18Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.
    Satan attacks us whether we know our rights or not. Sometimes one might be attacked simply because they are living a holy life or spreading the gospel, others are attacked because of sin. We must resist his attacks and pray for one another

      There are times when the tide went against the early Christians.

      So what do we do with the promises?

      Do we believe them or do we not believe them ?
      Or are they conditional ?

      Vikas

      • Some promises seem to be conditional, for instance the bible says honour thy mother and thy father, that it might be well with you and that you might live long upon the earth.

        Jesus made it clear to Peter that he was not going to die a natural death and Paul knew that he would suffer for gospel. God would give us peace and the grace to go through it, if that is the case. But God’s plan for John seems to be for him to die a natural death. John was not necessarily a better Christian than Peter and Paul, just that God’s plan was different for each of them

        Even though I believe that we can believe and claim God’s promises, I also believe in many instances it might be prudent to enquire of the Lord before making a decision as we don’t always know his plan, and not just assume that everything would be alright because we have believed and confessed a bible verse. The letter kills but the spirit gives life. In the Old Testament Israel was promised victory over their enemies and a promised land. Inspite of these promises they would still enquire of the lord to find out what he is saying and not be presumptuous. King David never went to war without consulting God first. Here are 7 examples of David enquiring of the lord. King Jehoshaphat did the same too.

        1. 1 Samuel 23:2
        Therefore David enquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I go and smite these Philistines? And the LORD said unto David, Go, and smite the Philistines, and save Keilah.
        2. 1 Samuel 23:4
        Then David enquired of the LORD yet again. And the LORD answered him and said, Arise, go down to Keilah; for I will deliver the Philistines into thine hand.
        3. 1 Samuel 30:8 (Ziklag)
        And David enquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shall surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.
        4. 2 Samuel 2:1
        And it came to pass after this, that David enquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I go up into any of the cities of Judah? And the LORD said unto him, Go up. And David said, Whither shall I go up? And he said, Unto Hebron.
        5. 2 Samuel 5:19
        And David enquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I go up to the Philistines? wilt thou deliver them into mine hand? And the LORD said unto David, Go up: for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand.
        6. 2 Samuel 5:23
        And when David enquired of the LORD, he said, Thou shall not go up; but fetch a compass behind them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees.
        7. 2 Samuel 21:1
        Then there was a famine in the days of David three years, year after year; and David enquired of the LORD. And the LORD answered, It is for Saul, and for his bloody house, because he slew the Gibeonites.
        The new testament equivalent is found in the book of James. James 4:13-16

        Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will[g] go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”; 14 whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. 15 Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.” 16 But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.

          Thank you for taking the time to read this blog. And yes you should consult with God I agree whole heartedly. But when David consulted God he had no word from God. It’s another thing when you have scripture that let’s you know the will of God. The Bible even calls the scriptures a more sure word of prophecy. I believe that you should consult the Lord when you don’t know what to do and I also believe that you should trust in his word when you find a scripture concerning your situation. Thanks!

          • Brother Frank

            I agree with your assertion that Bible is more sure word of prophecy, however the bible is God’s general will and not always his specific will. David did have old testament scriptures, there were a few occasions God did tell Israel that they would be defeated if they go to war. perhaps that was why he asked. For instance Paul was called to preach the gospel and the bible says that we should go into all the world and preach the gospel. Yet the holy spirit forbad him to go in to asia to preach the gospel.

            God has promised us success in the lord, but we might not know the precise thing that we need to do, simply from reading the word, you might still need God’s specific guidance, what might bring you success, might not necessarily bring me success. The same applies with healing or deliverance, if you stand on the word or promise and don’t get results, instead of continuing along the same lines, it might be wise to ask the Lord for guidance. So even in situations when we know what the will of God is generally, we might still need specific guidance, so in some regards we might be saying the same thing. thanks for the blog, i am sure many have been encouraged everyones comments.

      • frank broom says:

        You find a scripture that pertains to your situation.and trust in that scripture. And you can also ask God to give you understanding of the scripture if it’s not clear to you. Thanks for reading this blog.

    • frank broom says:

      Thank you for taking the time to read this blog. I never said that you would never be attacked by satan. The point I was trying to make is you don’t have to live like the world. There is a better way of living than under the rule of satan as the world is. But once you come under the rule of Jesus you are no longer subject to the rule of the devil. For instance, under the rule of the devil you may have had some sickness but once you come under the rule of Jesus he has something more better and powerful healing. God’s healing will win over sickness any day. You don’t have to continue to walk in sickness. Once you come under the rule of Jesus you are no longer subject to the things of the devil, that was my point. If you notice in the scriptures you mentioned in Daniel when the three hebrew boy was thrown into the fire no harm came to them. But notice even though fire consumes they were not subject to that, that’s the point I was trying to make. And the scriptures you mentioned about Jesus being stoned, if you notice it says they took up stones to cast at him but he hid himself and went through the midst of them and so passed by. Now we know the devil was behind them wanting to stone Jesus but notice he was not subject to that situation. Thanks!

    And how does this apply to those who are faithful even unto the death? How does this apply to the persecuted church?

    • frank broom says:

      There will always be persecution, Jesus was greatly persecuted and yet he always defeated the devil. Persecution is not the issue, how you handle it is the issue. You can still walk in victory in the things of God while being persecuted. Someone persecuting you shouldn’t stop you from walking in victory. God has promised all of his children protection but those promises has to be believed and spoken to activate them. Those that are faithful until death has a great reward to look forward to but there is also a way unto protection. I hope this was of some help and thanks for your question.

      • Timothy Luke says:

        Hi Frank, thanks for your patience in responding to my questions. I believe the problem lies in the presentation of what you are saying. “Diplomatic Immunity” means that a person in my country is not held liable for actions they take in my country. They can park in a no parking zone, and not have to pay the fine. Scripture clearly teaches that is false. “no you not to who you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey. Whether of sin unto death, or obedience unto righteousness.”

        We are no longer bound to serve sin. We are free to live righteously, even to the point of laying down our lives. You mention the times Jesus escaped from harm, but that was simply a forestalling of the inevitable. “his time had not come.” He was killed on a cross and told us to take up our cross likewise and follow him. I agree with your clarification on that issue. We are free to live lives of obedience regardless of physical consequences.

        Blessings to you!
