I was discussing with a lady when she told me “but you have to stop this your Jesus thing… It makes you look odd”
I want you to understand one thing, many people use their little minds to reason things that are out of this world. They wonder how there can be God, they wonder how people can be so foolish and daft to ever believe such story about God! They see people who believe in God as big time fools. Some people think it is old fashioned to discuss about God, they feel an emptiness in them, they know some things are not right, they know that somehow, somewhere, something is not right about what they believe but they just can’t believe those childish stories about God who created all those things in seven days, it sounds so unbelievable. Notwithstanding, the Bible knows about these people, the Bible knew such people are in existence and that’s why the Bible declared boldly in Psalm 14:1
‘Only fools say in their hearts, “There is no God” They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; not one of them does good!’
As foolish as the Bible may sound, it is true and perfect! Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 1:27
“Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful”
That is why when I look at people who disregard us because of Jesus, I laugh and pity them at the same time. Some people go to Church just to maintain certain tradition but right inside of their heart, they are not proud of the Church, they are not proud of Christ and they don’t identify with people who make their Christian identity a public affair because to them, they want to maintain class! Unfortunately, they are the ones being very foolish and very old fashioned! Believers have nothing to lose except those who are ignorant of the freedom they have in Christ… They are the ones loosing!
One big thing every Christians needs to understand is their identity in Christ, they really need to get the big picture of who they are so that they can really function effectively! If you have wings and can fly, you never get to fly when you don’t know you have wings or when you don’t know what those wings are for. Lots of people do not know what came with salvation, some people feels that salvation is a shift from freedom to bondage, they feel it is a kind of restriction and self discipline as defined with the corrupt perceptions of men. Let us see what the Scriptures says concerning us in Psalm 82:6
“I say, ‘You are gods; you are all children of the Most High.”
Did you see that? I didn’t say it, the Bible said so and denying it means denying the authenticity of God’s word and therefore denying God! The Bible says that we are Gods because we are children of the Most High! Nothing can give birth to something else because everything can only produce what they have inside of them! I looked up the Hebrew word used as “gods” and discovered that it is “Elohim”. I discovered the people who translated the Bible were afraid to use “Gods” because of what people might want to make out of it. However, do you know the meaning of Elohim? It means “THE INFINITELY ALL POWERFUL GOD”. I just can’t help but shout and shout whenever I come across some of this revelations! God called us “THE INFINITELY ALL POWERFUL GOD”. No wonder, the Paul wrote in Ephesians 2:10
” For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
We are the best of God’s creation because we were made to be like Him! That is why we are God’s masterpiece and the Bible says we were created to do good works just as God is doing good works! Now, we are designed to be an extension of God, we are not designed to be God all by ourselves but it is important to note and know that we are Elohim! The same word was used in Genesis, the Bible says that in the beginning, Elohim created the heavens and the earth! So, Elohim can only give birth to Elohim! The moment you understand this, the devil becomes even much more weaker to you! One thing the devil enjoys is the sight of ignorant believers! People who are ignorant of these things walk in darkness because they have subjected themselves to darkness by believing something else. Our God is the God of Gods, we are the Gods.
Every believer in Christ is not ordinary… Jesus confirms that to him who God’s word has come to becomes God! (John 10:34). We belong to the God class. The Psalmist was wondering what man is that God is so mindful of him, the Bible says concerning how God has made man in Psalm 8:5-6
“Yet you made them only a little lower than God and crowned them with glory and honor. You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet…”
The above verse also reminds me something I read in Ephesians 1:22
“God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church.” some translations says “under His feet”
If Jesus is the head and we are His body, it means that everything is under our feet! This is clearly the Bible, we are subject to God and all things are subject to us!
So, you owe no man an apology for declaring who you are. When people don’t understand you because you are a Christian, that is because you are not the same thing with them. You belong to the God class and they cannot understand God!
We are happier in Christ, we are not limited by anything! In Christ we are more than celebrities! In Christ, we are seated in the heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6)… You shouldn’t be afraid of the devil anymore, you should be afraid of situations! As long as you are in Christ, you are a new creation and old things are passed away! This is the reality of the new creation.
WE ARE KINGING…
