The world is suffering from a case of mistaken identity! The world is more than willing to tell you what is wrong with you…
our Father is longing to show you what is right with you!
The world looks and acts like its father, the father of lies, accusations, insinuations; more than willing to criticize and judge, blame and vilify, condemn and put ourselves above others…
when we reach the tipping point, either out of desperation, despair, great loss, terminal disease, ruined relationships, addictions or a turning point where we say, “enough is enough,” we turn to Jesus, the only One who can take your trial or test and make it into a testimony of our Father’s great Goodness; take your mess and make an uplifting message that will help others when they hit “bottom” or reach desperate times. Our help comes from Above, the Father of lights, who gives every good endowment and every perfect gift without shadow or variation of change! As soon as you turn to our Father, he comes running with open arms of all-enveloping Love! When we realize everything we did, thought or said came from mistaken identity, we forgive ourselves and forgive those who hurt us or we blamed, and tell the father of lies to take a hike and never come back! The jig is up!
Holy Spirit is our Comforter, allowing us to live in the midst of a dark, uncomfortable world as a light! Once we know our true identity and who our real Father is, we can know and begin to live, move and have our being in the Son, the Light of the world, and begin to walk as sons of Light in the Light, empowered and helped by the Holy Spirit with every step! We are no longer alone; we take heart that we are now on the winning team, backed by the host of heaven, empowered by the Holy Spirit, filled with the Light of Christ, his glory rising upon us, and every need supplied by our Father! We can finally relax, rest our soul in Christ, knowing we abide in him and he in us! We learn to receive all our sustenance from the Vine of Christ as a branch grafted on to it, that in time looks, acts and bears the same fruit as the perfect, holy Vine resurrected from the holy root of Judah!
We start to look and act like our Real Father, the Father of glory, the Father of lights, the Creator of heaven and earth, when we allow the Son to reconcile us with our True Father who gives us the Truth of our real identity as royal son, beloved of God, and as royal bride, cherished and loved beyond measure for eternity! We take the new name and let it be written and sealed on our forehead by the Holy Spirit!! We are no longer ruled by the base mind, the reptilian brain (animal instincts), or the trauma-based emotionally reactive midbrain, but we put on the Mind of Christ in our forebrain, our neocortex receiving the higher thoughts and ways of our true Father in heaven!
We can only come Home in our spiritual heart to our real Father through the Son who died, resurrected and ascended back to perfect oneness with the Father. In Christ we died, resurrected and ascended with Christ if you have eyes to see and ears to hear. In Christ we are seated in heavenly places with our Father; without Christ we are living in the shadows under the rule of the destroyer/deceiver/father of lies. In Christ, our true image and likeness, we look just like our real Father!
We don’t live down to the world’s expectations and experiences; we live up to the Word, filled with the Spirit in eager expectation! When experiences come that look like the father of lies, we do not fall for the physical appearances, but declare the Word, the Truth, the Life of Christ in us and stay focused on our true identity and the shadow flees, the symptom disappears, the “problem” dissolves, the urge goes away, the conflict resolves when we don’t buy into it, knowing the Way, Truth and Life!
“Submit to God, resist the devil, and the devil has to flee”
We all look and act like the father of lies, satan’s image and likeness, until we wake up and realize we have been sold a bill of goods…
we wake up and godly sorrow is replaced with the Light of Christ; Jesus won the fight so we don’t have to! Jesus already did it ALL so we don’t have to! We give everything to Jesus and receive everything of our Father! We have to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling; we work out what our Father works into us: his kingdom of heaven on earth, the King of glory, our Father of glory, and the river of Holy Spirit that brings every goodness to us and carries away all spots of darkness if we let it!
“The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come.’ Let those who hear say, ‘Come.’ Let those who are thirsty and desire TAKE the water of life without price” Revelation 22:17
Take it and run with it! Know your true identity with Christ in God our Father, our Beloved our soul has yearned and longed for but we filled with other things that could never fully satisfy or fulfill us! What we were told would make us happy never can. Our Father restores our true identity as his beloved son through the Son and his Spirit flowing in and through us! Jesus makes our tree right and it can only bear righteous fruit that looks, tastes, smells, sounds, and feels just like Christ: perfect Love, pure Light, and the Spirit of truth, holiness, righteousness, peace and Joy in the Holy Spirit! Know the Truth and the Truth sets you FREE!!!!!!!
“For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in POWER” 1 Cor 4:20
Our Father gives us the power through his Son, Holy Spirit and fire to transform, transfigure, and transfer from the dominion of darkness and eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, to the kingdom of the beloved Son as a beloved royal son and a cherished royal bride eating of the tree of life in the paradise of God! (Rev 2:7)
Conquer the lie and Come!
