Open Your MIND

True “Identity IS Christ”. Don’t you think it’s high time you did away with the idea that is “Identity IN Christ”? There’s a difference in those statements. Everywhere, all over the place, scriptures insist on making it known that our union with God IS Christ. Christ, is the revelation of Identity, in and AS God. The identity that was before the world was in fact formed, the identity that is Love. What God did is greater than whatever labels we give ourselves. The understanding that is Christ (our Identity) can come to anyone in any place under any label. The understanding of which could change everything.

And we know that the Son of God came so we could recognize and understand the truth of God

This is why what God did (said) is greater than Christianity. Believing Christ (True Self — Identity) isn’t to/for Christians alone, it is to/for the world. All labels. It’s to believe God IS You, IN You, AS You, and THROUGH You. This is what I consider the truth of God — the reality that is Christ; one beyond the box that is labels. There are Christians that have no idea who they are (their true identity). There are Buddhists who have perfect comprehension of who they are (their true identity in God). There are Muslims who understand who they are (Identity in God), as well as some Christians. Weren’t we taught not to judge books by their covers? 

Identity (Christ) isn’t in labels. It’s in understanding who God IS, and God is LOVE — And so are YOU

How is LOVE restricted to a label or a group of people only? Just HOW?! To believe in Christ is to believe in WHO YOU TRULY ARE. It’s to grant yourself PERMISSION to be FULLY You, to be LOVE! It’s funny how Jesus emphasized greatly on LOVE, and LOVING. Realize YOU, then Express YOU; for without the first, the second is invalid. What God said about Himself (Christ — the Truth — Who you are) is far beyond what Labels can bountifully describe.

There are they who are wonderful believers of Christ (their True Identity in God), and aren’t in the religion you could possibly expect; in fact the least people you could possibly expect. And there are they who are called Christians, ‘expected’ to be believers of Christ, yet, have no clue WHO THEY ARE (Christ). Paul goes on to say, aren’t we to look beyond what we think of people based on labels and appearances? What God displayed in Christ is enough. Hence, we consider no man anymore after what we could possibly think (unsound evaluations). Rather, we judge based on what God thinks (Christ). If you should at all label a person, label them Christ (LOVE). How else could they possibly know themselves, if they are not re-minded who they are?

Preach the message, go into the world, let the people know that their IDENTITY IS CHRIST — LOVE!

On Issues of IDENTITY

A time in my life, after I was “SAVED”, I still didn’t feel SAFE. A friend made this statement yesterday that resonated within me.

“It is a terrible thing to live without knowing how awesome you TRULY are” – Effiong (The Rabbi).

Without realizing the awesome that you are, every decision made would be made out of uncertainties and fear of the unknown. Even for someone who “received” Jesus and was SAVED. He still doesn’t feel SAFE, because ignorant of what REALITY is. In my observation, it all began from hearing wrong about self. Listening to some pretty unhealthy news about Self.

From birth, we heard the news that we all sinned in Adam, and we carried on making Adam our reference henceforth. We made Adam our identity, the “one” who had the separation mindset since Eden. Hence, hearing the unpleasant news about ourselves. Leaving us ignorant of Who We Truly Are. Separated from our true identity, we hence lived life from a deluded mindset; living out the darkness initially meant to help us experience the light that we are.

“And because we do not know WHO WE TRULY ARE, we therefore live out WHO WE TRULY AREN’T”

We became blinded to a life that was supposed to be of PEACE, LOVE, ACCEPTANCE, UNITY, ASSURANCE, HEALTH and REST, and started to live out a life of WAR, HATE, REJECTION, DIVISIONS, FEAR, SICKNESS and LABOR. All because we made Adam our reference point. Again, a separated mindset. A lost IDENTITYSIN. Whereas, Jesus came and died for better. How that we didn’t hear the news that Jesus is our legitimate reference point baffles me though. I implore you to stop hearing the news that Adam is your reference point. He no longer is (he, in fact, never was). Move on from there.

How is it that we didn’t need to believe in Adam before we became SINNERS? The horrible news was just passed on to us. And because of one man’s sin, we all became condemned to a fate never meant for us. So hard is it for us to believe that before we were ever thought of being born, Jesus came and undid all that ADAM did. How come we were born to not believe one to participate and believe the other to participate. Nothing fair about that news to even make it good in the first place. We just didn’t get God’s message right.

We listened to God’s statement from an entirely different perspective, and we passed it on over years. Doesn’t make it TRUTH however.

Identity-1

“And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us UNDERSTANDING so that we know the true ONE, and are in union with the truth One–that is, we are in union with His Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and the Life of the Ages” – John

Christ came to give us an understanding. He came to give us insight. He didn’t come to play. Seeing that we have been living out WHO WE TRULY AREN’T, Christ came to give us insight on WHO WE TRULY ARE. Christ is the understanding; the understanding of which could change everything. The understanding that God is our point of reference, and not Adam. The understanding that SIN isn’t our identity, but RIGHTEOUSNESS is.  Never should we have heard we were sinners, or ever separated from God or even condemned by God at all. All was a lie. We all were never to hear such news – news that was never about Christ; the understanding of our Identity.

WHO ARE WE TRULY? At least, I know who we aren’t… We aren’t enemies of God, slaves of God, servant of God, or even separated from God e.t.c. We are but SONS of God. One WITH God. Always IN God. Living AS God. Our Identity is LOVE, PEACE and RIGHTEOUSNESS. Reason is we have always been ACCEPTED, HOLY, BLAMELESS.

Interesting part is “whatever God knows to be TRUE” never changes. And he knew you before he formed you to be HOLY and BLAMELESS before Him in LOVE. Why then have you chosen to know yourself differently because of what your Pastor says happened to you in Adam? Do you realize what God knows you to be true before the foundations of the world is waaaaay greater than what happened to you in Adam.

KNOW YOURSELF AS YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN KNOWN BY THE ONE WHO KNOWS ALL.

The knowledge He (God) has of you is of PEACE and not of EVIL. In other for you to ACCEPT and LOVE Yourself, FEEL SAFE in being SAVED; which is your EXPECTED END. Be at PEACE with yourself, in yourself and all things around you. So you know, God didn’t change his mind about you because of Jesus. Rather, Jesus is God’s mind made up about you before the world was formed.

Again, I say remain at peace, for God is at peace with you.

Have a great weekend in Advance. 🙌

My name is not God

My Name Is Not God

My name is not God
He who is destitute of love has never had any knowledge of God; because God is love ~ 1 John 4:8 [WNT]

Since time began, the idea of a “God” has been perverted. The fallen mind of humanity decided to see God as some ultimate superior being separate from them. In God’s economy, “superiority” (if “He” ever has such vocab) is absolute humility and meekness.

God is merely a title, hence, we see an incumbent. “His” name is not God. God is a Spirit, whose name is LOVE. Love is All and in All. Love is the Father of ALL things. Love is existence. All things existing exist in LOVE. Love is not some being separate form ANYTHING existing. No! LOVE is a community, Love is relationship.
