Something GOD has been showing and teaching me this season is IDENTITY. Not just who we are but what authority we have. When we truly understand our identity in Christ, then we can truly understand the freedom given to us.
To many of His people are still being held captive after receiving salvation. The enemy has blinded them from the truth. 2 Cor 4:4 "The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God." biblehub.com/2_corinthians/4-4.htm
In 2 Cor 5: 17-19 God says the old is passed away. "This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! " biblehub.com/2_corinthians/5-20.htm
Once you received Jesus as your savior, the old identity was immediately washed and covered by the blood of Jesus Christ. At that very second, Christ gave you a new identity. You stepped from that current past and into your current future, your new identity. God no longer looks at what was but what is and is to come.
The atmosphere shifted that moment you said yes to Jesus. You were given the keys to the kingdom of heaven. You were raised up to be seated at the right hand of God. Your enemies became your footstool. The blood of Jesus came alive.
Do you understand the new identity given to you? Do you understand the authority given to you? Do you really understand the depth of receiving salvation? Jesus took it all so that you can live in victory and not defeat.
Once you begin to understand who you are in Christ, sickness can no longer stay. Condemnation has to go. Addictions have to break. Your past is no longer who you are. You are a king, queen, prince, princess of the most high God. Things that seemed impossible become possible.
It's mind blowing once you begin to see yourself as God sees you. Over and over God tells us how he sees us. Over and over Jesus demonstrated His power and authority. Over and over He tells us to go... cast out demons, heal the sick, raise the dead. You and Him are now one. You have taken on His identity, His commission and His authority. Nothing in hell can stand against the name of Jesus. Everything with a name must bow down to the name of Jesus. Phil 2;9-10 "Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names. that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth" biblehub.com/philippians/2-10.htm
No longer do you have to have that defeated mindset. No longer do you have to be sick. No longer do you have to be what the past identified you as. Begin renewing your mind and words. Start speaking life and begin taking authority of what the enemy had too long. You ARE a new creation!.........JustFood4Thought
