TRANSLATED

What does it mean to translate? In summary it means to convert something or be converted into (another form or medium).
'Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son' Col.1:13. What a privilege! What an experience! A right to be called into His kingdom is not what everyone enjoy.
There are some people who are still struggling with battered or shattered identity, unpleasant past, pains and hurt and they wish if only they could come out of it, they'll start again and be fine.
I have a good news for you that you can start now, no matter what has happened to you in the past, no matter how you’ve been treated or jilted, no matter the amount of time you aborted, that you're a single mother (child out of wedlock) isn't an issue, no matter how long you've been an addict (porn, drugs, masturbation, and so on).
There is a Translator waiting to translate you, to transform you only if you would allow Him.
Enough of holding onto the pain of the one who physically abused you, enough of allowing just anyone to play with your heart, enough of sex before and outside marriage, be translated.
Of a truth, Christians have been moved from one "country" to another. We have been separated from this present evil world, separated unto God but God has not driven us into another land as conquered enemies please note that. He has rescued us in love "from the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son."
The Father has given you victory over the powers of darkness through the finished work of Christ. He has translated or conveyed you into the authority and protection of Christ's glorious kingdom.
Note the past tense form of the verb 'translated', which means it is not something He's just planning to do, it is something He has done for you. When Christ said 'It is finished' on the cross but you're not allowing the manifestation of it to happen due to sin or that thing you're holding on to which is ungodly. ‎
The kingdom is not majorly the future but also the present because when you're in His kingdom, things naturally work for you in the physical. When a man submits to God, he does things effortlessly; a fish does not struggle to swim in water neither does an eagle make effort to fly, when you are in His kingdom, you simply reign even in the face of challenges because He is there with you to see you through and come out stronger.
Beloved, God is calling you today to Himself, let him re-shape, re-mould, re-arrange your life that you think has been shattered. He is saying no my dearest, I am here to translate you into higher heights, He wants to make your situation a testimony, will you allow Him?
Just invite Him into your life now, announce Him as your Saviour and Lord and declare a new beginning with all sincerity of heart and that is all you need. If Christ is all you have, you have all you need!
The critical question for everybody (Christians, new converts and unbelievers) is; have you really been translated? From the power of Satan to God and from the hold of sin to righteousness? Examine your life!
