What Is Your Identity
The word identity means someone who has a personal characteristics. What is your identity? Most people would mention their gender, religion, race, age, etc. In the natural, people probably see me as a young Christian woman. But, I personally identify myself as a child of God. That is my identity. Now you may be wondering how this relates to Christianity. Well spiritually we can have either of two identities: a child of God or a child of Satan. Which one are you? Most will say: “Obviously I am a child of God.” But, you have to remember not everyone who shouts “Lord, Lord!” is making it through the gates.
Identification Cards. What are IDs used for? Well, one thing they are used for is to let you into certain places like clubs, different countries, etc. The reason the owner asks for the ID is because they need to know if you should be in that exact location. They can tell by seeing your identity. If you shouldn’t be there then they will simply not let you in. It is the same with God’s Kingdom which is Heaven and Lucifer’s Kingdom which is Hell. If you do not belong there you cannot go in.
For example, if you are a child of God you would not be put in Hell once you die because you do not belong there. Vice versa, if you are a child of Satan then you would not be put in Heaven once you die because you do not belong there. God would never allow one of his faithful servants to burn for eternity since they accepted God’s grace. Christians cannot go to Hell. Unless we are a counterfeit. Unless we are a fake. Unless we are a tare. If you are a counterfeit you will be going because you are not a child of God, you are instead a child of Satan. A fun fact about counterfeit money is that once you shine the light on it the light will not shine through. Something is blocking it. But, if it is real then the light will shine through. Now, going to church on Sunday isn’t gonna save you.
Although it is all good to keep the sabbath day because it is a commandment. But, if all you are doing is just sitting in church for one serm0n then jumping into Satan’s world after then you cannot enter through the gates. Matter of fact, you were never in God’s world. You were actually still in Satan’s world while sitting in the church. So if your spiritual identification says Satan then you cannot be let into Jesus’s Kingdom. The identification card describes you. If you have: angry, gossiper, liar, envoyer, lasciviousness and emulator on your identification card you cannot enter into the Kingdom. Since you have traits of Lucifer. If you have: love, faith, meekness, contentment, temperance (good fruits) on your identification card then you will be let into the kingdom.
2 Cor 5:17 says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” All the back when we were in our mother’s womb our spiritual identification said Lucifer. This is because we are the seed of Adam. But once you actually give your life to God your spiritual identity says Jesus.
Now where is this spiritual identification card located. The answer is the forehead. Yes indeed the Mark of the Beast. This ID is located inside the forehead not on the skin. Only people who can see into the spiritual realm can literally see it clears. Others in the natural cannot. Your forehead either says Lucifer (666) or Jesus. Which one is on your forehead? Most would say Jesus. But even someone who calls him- or herself a Christian could still have the Mark of Satan on their forehead. To make sure you have Jesus written on your forehead you should check if you line up with this scripture: “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” (John 1:12).
You must be willing to receive him. Receive all not just some. Let him come into your life to live inside of you. He can only live inside of you if you are willing. But remember the spirit is indeed willing but the flesh is weak. Then you have to believe that he is. Then you will become a child of God. It is really that simple. But when we give in to flesh makes it so difficult to become one. Same with Satan though. If you receive Satan and let him come into your life, and you believe that he is then you are a child of Lucifer. It is really that simple. Who do you have on your forehead? What does your spiritual identification card say?
Let’s dig deeper into what this ID says. In Luke 8:5-15, it says, “And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of every city, he spake by a parable: A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it. And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it. And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be? And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand. Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.”
If a person’s ID says wayside this means that they have heard the word but Lucifer came so fast to take it out of their hearts so they wouldn’t believe or be saved. If a person’s ID says rock this means they heard the word and received it with joy but they have no root which causes them to fall into temptation rather quickly. If a person’s ID says thorns this means that they hear the word but struggle with the particular sin emulation, they emulate the cares of this world. If a person’s ID says good ground this means they have received the word in their honest and pure heart, they are good fruits. The ones who’s identification says wayside, rocks, or thorns are unfortunately going to Hell because they are blind. But, the ones whose ID says good ground is going to heaven. Which are you?
In this Bible study we covered four main topics: what identity is, what identification cards are, where they are located, and what it tells us. The word identity means who a person is. Identification cards are cards that tell us who our identity is as a person. Our spiritual identity is located in the forehead. Our identification tells us whether we are on the wayside, rocks, thorns, or ground ground. Now answer these four questions for me: What do you identify as? What is an identification card? Where is it located? What does it tell you? God Bless!
