Who Are YOU?

Who Are YOU?

Receiving revelation of who Jesus is, knowing Him in deeper, more intimate ways, gives us access to the things of the Kingdom. Jesus gave Simon Peter the keys of the Kingdom as a result of Peter knows who Jesus is. The same is true in our lives, not just regarding who the Lord is… but also who He is in others.

Who do we say He is? Who do we say a child of God is? Is it just BillTim or Susie? Or… do we believe this is the child of the most High God? The people in our lives who are born again are not just who they are known to be in the natural, but they are vessels used by God in greater measure than what is seen.

As we grow and walk in the Spirit, we no longer battle the inner familiarity with ourselves, but we see it in others. The Holy Spirit is moving through us. We have finally learned to recognize and believe in the glory of the Lord that is seen in and through us. Others in our lives start to receive from the Lord through us, bypassing who we are in the natural. We grow to know no one by the flesh, but in and by the Spirit of God, from glory to glory!

Matthew 16:16-19 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” 

 

Offensive Glory

Offensive Glory

We walk in who we are in Christ doing His works, His will and His way; and this newness of life may offend those around us. This offense comes from unbelief and may cause the rejection of many blessings. Jesus could not do many mighty works in His own house, in His own town, because those who knew him in the natural didn’t receive Him walking in the supernatural.

People may reject who we are in Christ because they know who we used to be, before we received Christ as Lord and Savior. Familiarity brings unbelief when we do not see others through the eyes of the Lord. Obeying the leading of the Lord and stepping forth in His name may be offensive for those closest to us. Unbeknownst to them, they are not rejecting us but blessings from the Lord through us, as we minister showers of glory upon their lives. This rejection is an objection to the unction of the Lord. The manifestation of Christ is often quenched because of offense.

Only the Holy Spirit can reveal who we are in Christ and remove rejection, offense and unbelief. He enables us to continue our ministry of reconciliation regardless of responses. We obey the leading of the Spirit of God and never base the fruit on what we see but on who we know, from glory to glory.

Matthew 13:57-58 “So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, ‘A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.’ Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.”
