Now That You Are Saved

For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation."* Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, *which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant."*

God's prosperity plan is not in monetary value
God never saves and leave the enemy or the captor still standing. He first deals with the captor and releases the captive. 

We can see that in the great salvation He wrought in Egypt when He delivered the children of Israel from the land of their captive God never delivers His captives empty  God never delivers His captive and leave them stranded 

All these God wrought in Egypt was a fashion of things He has planned to do in the great salvation of mankind which He wrought in His Son Jesus Christ.

The same vein He delivered us from the power of sin and death and addressed first the problem of sin 

And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;*
Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;"*. And made it possible that sin no longer has dominion over us


He triumph over Satan and all his agents and placed us in dominion over them (Col 2:15 *"And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it."*). Making us sit with Him in dominion (Eph1:20-22; Eph2:6).
