OUR HEAVENLY FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS IN CHRIST
Human fundamental rights are the basic rights and freedoms that belong to every person in the world, from birth until death.
They apply regardless of where you are from, what you believe or how you choose to live your life.
They can never be taken away, although they can sometimes be restricted – for example if a person breaks the law, or in the interests of national security.
These basic rights are based on shared values like dignity, fairness, equality, respect and independence.
Just as we have human rights there are also heavenly rights for believers and Christians who are saved
Believers all over the world are learning their rights. They are becoming more and more aware of their position as children of God and joint heirs with Jesus (Romans 8:17), the free accessible rights and freedom Christ brought to us.
If you’re ready to take your place and walk in the benefits that belong to you, here are seven rights you have as a child of God
The Right to Access God
Man once lost the right of free access to God’s presence when Adam and eve sinned.
That right was restored when Christ died on the cross and the veil of the temple was worn.
You can access God directly anywhere, anytime without the need of a priest.
You can communicate with God freely, openly.
We now have the right to access God.
The Right to Salvation
Christ opened freely the doors of salvation for everyone to enter.
Whether Jew, Gentile or whomever, you now have a right to be saved the moment you believe in Jesus Christ.
Salvation is not restricted or limited anyway as salvation is free for everyone and a right.
Everyone now has the right to be saved.
The Right to God’s spirit.
The right to receiving the holy spirit was opened to everyone, young,old male female as predicted in Joel 2 v 28 and fulfilled in Acts 2.
In the old times, only few people had the holy spirit, the prophets, the kings and the priests.
But now with Christ.
The Right to all Spiritual Blessings
As believers in Christ we now have access and a right to all spiritual and heavenly blessings in store for us to enjoy and benefit
And also we can enjoy the blessings in the earth with God’s abundance unlimited..
You Have the Right to Be Free
“Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” –John 8:36 (NKJV)
When God created man, He gave him the gifts of life, dominion and free will. Why did He give us free will and not just force us to be righteous? Because God didn’t want robots or servants. He wanted a family. That’s why the right, the privilege and the power to DECIDE has been left by God in the hands of men.
You have the right, for example, to decide where you’re going to spend eternity. You have the right to choose life or death, blessing or cursing. You have the right to choose heaven or hell, and God will back your decision. Most of all, you have the right to be free.
Satan will try to convince you that you can’t choose to be free. But, let’s not forget for a moment that he is the father of lies. So, which are you going to choose?
Jesus took it all from you. You are free indeed!
You Have the Right to Be Healed
“By His stripes we are healed.” –Isaiah 53:5 (NKJV)
When it comes to the rights provided by the government, we may have to fight for those rights at times. But with God, you don’t have to fight for the right to be healed. No. Jesus has already dealt with that.
You are a son or daughter of Abraham and you should be healed today! Jesus broke the power of the curse that came on Adam, and if you’ll exercise your authority in Christ Jesus by His Name, His blood, His Word and His resurrection, as a joint heir with Him—then that curse does not have any right or authority over you.
You Have the Right to Prosper
“And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.” –2 Corinthians 9:8
People have the idea that spiritual things are separate from material things. That isn’t true. Spiritual laws govern material things. A Spirit (God) created all matter.
So, the laws of prosperity will work for anyone who will meet the biblical requirements to walk in them. God has always promised, “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land” (Isaiah 1:19, NKJV). While there are
qualifications for increase in prosperity , it already belongs to you, and you have a right to call for it!
Why does God want us to prosper? Not only so that we might enjoy life abundantly, but so we will do something about the poverty in the rest of the world. The gospel not only gives people hope in the Kingdom to come, but it gives them hope in the here and now!
What does it mean to prosper? It means you have the right to live a long life on the earth. You have the right to have joy and peace. You have the right to live in a safe and beautiful home, drive a reliable car, be steadily employed at a job where you are promoted and paid well. You have the right to enjoy healthy relationships and to bear children.
You have these rights because you are redeemed, saved and joint heirs, with Jesus, of the promise of prosperity given to Abraham. Abraham was lacking nothing. He was blessed with abundance in every area. That’s also your inheritance. That’s your right as a child of God.
You Have the Right to Never Fear Again
“For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, ‘Abba, Father.’” –Romans 8:15 (NKJV)
Do you have any fear in your life? Right off, you may think you don’t. But, do you worry about anything? Are you afraid of getting sick, getting fired or losing a loved one? Are you afraid people are talking about you behind your back? Are you afraid of what your future looks like?
Let’s start here: You have the right to never fear again. Ever. God didn’t give you a spirit of fear—He gave you a spirit of power. When you’re empowered, you don’t fear. Fear isn’t natural, and it isn’t responsible. It’s nothing but torment ( 1 John 4:18 ). And Jesus didn’t come so you would be tormented—He came to give you dominion, authority, peace and perfect love. What does perfect love do? It casts out fear—permanently.
Jesus came to break the power of that bondage! How? By stopping the force of fear. Praise God! There is not one thing in Satan’s bag of tricks that the Word cannot overcome. So, don’t pay him any attention!
And you have been given a right by God to step over into that supernatural place. You have authority over demons, and you have a right to take your stand in the unseen world of the supernatural—the realm of the Spirit of God. You have a right to never fear again.
You Have the Right to Have Peace
“The Lord will bless His people with peace.” –Psalm 29:11 (NASB)
True peace doesn’t come from the absence of trouble; it comes from the presence of God. The Hebrew word for peace, shalom, means “completeness, wholeness, peace, health, welfare, safety, soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, absence of agitation or discord; to be complete, perfect and full.
There is a story of an art gallery that asked for paintings illustrating the idea of peace. The one that stood out most was that of a scene with a small tree branch bending over a rushing waterfall. On the branch sat a small nest with a bird sleeping inside. That is a great picture of the God kind of peace.
You have a right to have peace like that, even when serious trouble comes (Isaiah 26:3). How? Enter into peace by spending time praising God and resting in the truth of His Word. As you put your complete trust in Him, you will experience peace in the midst of even the most challenging circumstances.
You Have the Right to Use the Name of Jesus
“And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ.” –1 John 3:23 (NIV)
We have a commandment to believe on the Name of the Son of God. To believe on His Name is to put demand upon His ability. The mighty, powerful Name of Jesus is available to you. But, you must become aware of your right and privilege to use it.
The Name of Jesus is the key to heaven’s storehouse. It can do anything that Jesus can do. According to Philippians 2:9-11, everything in existence—heaven, earth, under the earth—will bow its knee and confess with its mouth that Jesus is Lord. The Name of Jesus is the Name that is above every other name.
You are in the family of God, and you have the right to the use of the Name of Jesus. When you pray in the Name of Jesus, you have the right to expect your heavenly Father to answer because you have not prayed in your own name—you have prayed in Jesus’ Name. His righteousness (right-standing with God) is yours!
Jesus came to earth and gave Himself as a sacrifice for sin to buy back your rights. Once you receive Him as Lord of your life, all the rights and privileges God originally intended for you are restored.
