Your Biblical Bill of Rights

Your HAVE the right:
1. to mercy and forgiveness
-  Eph 1:7 KJV In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
2. of inheritance - grace, miracle, signs and wonders
-  Col 1:12 KJV Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
3. to grow in love
-  2 Pet 3:18 KJV But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
- 1 Th 3:12 KJV And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you:
4. to the fruit of the Spirit
- Eph 5:9 KJV - For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;
5. to the abiding anointing, to do all that He did
- 1 John 2:27 KJV But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
6. to His Holy Spirit in full measure
- Rom 12:3 KJV For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
- Rom 8:11 KJV But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
7. to the fullness of the Godhead, to be joined in union with Christ, knowing perpetual relationship and communion, sharing in His Divine Nature
- 2 Pet 1:4 KJV Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
8. to the gifts of the Spirit
- 1 Cor 12:1 KJV Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.

OF COURSE, IF YOU ARE LIVING YOUR LIFE ACCORDING TO THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE. Many people stand for their rights but fall down on their responsibilities.

Then you DO NOT HAVE the right:
- Rev 21:27 KJV And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
a. to lasciviousness, unbridled lust or that which is contrary to chastity or lewd or excessive
b. to lie, to act or speak falsely with intent to mislead or delude
    1. your enemy the devil is a liar and the father of all liars
c. to sexual immorality
d. to anger, rather put away wrath, malice, slander, abusive speech
e. to envy, jealousy and strife, for they breed disorder and every evil thing
f. to unforgiveness, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, forgiving as Christ forgave you
g. to depression and rejection, we are commanded to be strong and of good courage
h. to live in fear, fear breeds bondage, but we were bought to liberty
i. to disappointment, disillusionment, defeat. These are thieves to steal the word of faith. Know whom you have believed, He is able to guard His own.
j. To emotional distress and mental illness. He called us to a sound mind.
k. To uncleanness of flesh and spirit.
    1. We are to perfect holiness in the fear of the Lord, make strenuous effort to overcome sin.
- Isa 35:8 KJV And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
- Heb 12:14 KJV Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
- Lev 20:7 KJV Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God.
- 1 Pet 1:15 KJV But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
- 1 Pet 1:16 KJV Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
    2. He will aid us in our struggle.
Rom 8:31What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
- Phil 4:13 KJV I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

These are a few of the many right and privileges provided to us through our Redemption. When the enemy comes against us with an unlawful thought, we are to exercise our Bill of Rights to bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. - 2 Cor 10:5 KJV Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

We want to become champions, trained to overcome our enemy. To do that, we must thoroughly know our rights before God. Train yourself with the help of the Holy Spirit, and be victorious in His Name.

America's Spiritual Heritage with the Bill of Rights.
A century and a half before the Bills of Rights was framed, the early colonist adopted the Constitution of the New England Confederation. The document declared its framers' devout faith and steadfast purpose. The proclamation read:
"Whereas, we all came into these parts of America with one and the same end and aim, namely, to advance the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ and to enjoy the liberties of the Gospel in purity and peace."
The little colony of Rhode Island became the first political state in world history to guarantee absolute religious freedom to all faiths. That was in 1644.
Moreover, before the Liberty Bell was hung in Independence Hall, in Philadelphia, in 1752, our Christian patriots directed that this inspired Scripture from Leviticus 25:10 be inscribed thereon: Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto the inhabitants thereof.
Also, the brave Christian patriots who signed the Declaration of Independence included it in these immortal words: With a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.
At the Constitutional Convention, Benjamin Franklin rose to utter these words: ...God governs the affairs of men: and if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? Matthew 10:29
Those men knelt in prayer, and the result was the Bill of Rights, the Magna Carta of our freedom. Faith in God and the Bible is interwoven into the very fabric of our nation's history.

This is an earthly bill of rights but we who have believed on the Lord Jesus Christ have a more sure and eternal BILL OF RIGHTS in that we are Children of God. All who believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and receive Him, God gives power to become His children. We automatically receive His Bill of Rights but it is up to us to appropriate and to implement them in our lives.

God bless you and yours!

Your friends in the service of Christ,
