“For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells;..” Romans 7:18 But “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” Galatians 2:20
“I am your identity I am the one that lives in you, I am the one who transforms your mind to be like mine. I am the one in who’s likeness and image you were made. The old man of sin has passed away it is I Christ who now dwells within you leading you in all truth.” Says the LORD of Host!
Paul got the revelation when he said that it is the sin inside him that makes him do the evil things, (Romans 7:15-25). He found the answer is in Christ Jesus, he knew who his TRUE identity is he knew that his identity IS in Christ Jesus his Messiah. We need to get this revelation we need to know who we are, we need to know what authority we are walking in. You need to know that the true you is on the inside and that your flesh is just a host for the true you, the true you looks like God because you were made in His image and likeness.
Remember you were once dead, doomed forever because of your sins. You used to live just like the rest of the world, full of sin, obeying Satan. But through the Blood of the Lamb of God you are no longer slave to sin and you are a NEW Creator in Christ Jesus, having a NEW Identity in Him, through His Blood and the Cross. Once you accepted Christ as your Savior, got baptized by water and Spirit you also gave up your old identity and accepted His. (2 Corinthians 5:14-17)
“I Am Your Identity! Are you going to live for or are you going to live for self fulfilling your own fleshly desires with the spirit of Satan working in your heart? My return is Soon, come to Me my Bride while there is still time, I have longed to hold you in my arms, let Me wash you in my Blood and prepare you for My return.”
Knowing who you are is a very powerful key to your spiritual breakthrough! You are made new in Christ and Born of God! So You must display your new nature because you are a new person, created in God’s likeness — righteous, holy, and true. You are seated with Christ in a position of Authority. When you don’t KNOW who you are and that your Identity IS Christ your faith will be crippled, hence always making your feel unworthy of the Father’s love.
“And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others. But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus” Ephesians 2:1-7
“..those who become Christians become new persons. They are not the same anymore, for the old life is gone. A new life has begun!” 2 Corinthians 5:17
Savior, Your Word is truth, we boldly confess that without You we are nothing and we can do nothing apart from You. Holy Spirit teach us to lean more and more upon the breast of our Savior, our Beloved. Lord, we desire that our life and identity be hidden in You and YOU alone. Less of us and more and more of You is our heart’s cry today LORD. We lay down the old man and we accept our Identity in You. Help us to understand and get a deeper revelation of what it means that You are our Identity, help us to understand who we are in You, help us to KNOW who we are in You.
