A Case of Mistaken Identity
I was giving out food during the outreach, and happened upon a gay person, who was beautiful in appearance, well groomed, friendly and grateful. We exchanged greetings, shook hands and when on with other activities.
The next day, as I was thinking about the encounter the Lord spoke to my heart, “mistaken identity”. So I began my journey to discover the reason behind the mistaken identity. The Lord did not point his finger at the gay person. He pointed his finger back at me. “Know who you are in Christ Jesus, know your purpose” With the recent decision about legalizing gay marriage; we have been hearing and see a lot of post on Facebook and in the media. post like: finally equal rights, it’s about time, America is going to feel God’s wrath, the end of America is near, it sin I tell you sin!!!! Wake up church. We have white people who say they are black. We have woman who want to be men. Men who want to dress like women. Health people who are able to work want to be disabled. Disabled people who want to work. We have older people who want to be young again, and will go to great expense to feel their youth return. We have people who change their appearance, because they don’t like certain feature, we have beast enlargements, beast deductions, butt lifts, face lifts, nose’ jobs, if you gain too much weight, doctors can suck the fat out of you. It is all a case of mistaken identity.
If we realized that we were accepted in the beloved. We are accepted by God, because He is the Creator and everything He makes is good. Bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come. That the real you is your spirit, it is not your skin color, your job, or your gender. We are one man in Christ Jesus.
Satan had the first case of mistaken identity. He thought he was God. I know it was the pride factor, He thought that he was something he wasn’t mistaken identity. If Satan would have known who he was he would have gladly served and worshipped God.
God Almighty is the Creator. Christians are His people. Christians were created for His pleasure, his purpose which is to do good works. We are children of God, created by Him and for Him. When Jesus Christ died and rose again. He defeated the enemy of mankind. Jesus redeemed us, bought us back from the devil and gave us his authority in the earth, to rule and reign as kings and priest unto God Almighty. We are to establish his kingdom, his rules on this earth. As Apostle Paul states, he is a servant of Jesus Christ. In Ephesians, he calls himself a prisoner of the Lord. We owe Jesus our love, praise, worship and obedience to his written commands the bible and his oral commands which could be the prompting of our heart.
The world needs to see Jesus in us. The world needs to want what we have. We have a generation who was taught in school that they evolved from a single cell. They were ever taught about God or his ways. We need to teach this generation who they can be in Christ Jesus. We need to teach them that are loved and accepted by God and God has a plan for their lives. What we need share the love of Christ with them and not point the finger at them saying you are wrong. Share the goodness of God with them. Tell them that God created you and you need to establish a relationship with your Creator.
It all starts by a confession: Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. It all starts with unity of the Christian out of love for God and each other. The power of AS ONE.
In Lev 26:8 And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.
In Deu 32:30 it is talking about our enemies How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up? It all starts by reading the Bible and find out what God is like, what pleases Him and what doesn’t please Him. In the absence of truth you have lies. I believe in the goodness of God and His ability to set the captive free. America is a Christian nation, formed and fashioned with Christian beliefs. We take care of the widow and the orphan and protect the fatherless. From a letter from the national prolife alliance dated 6-15-15 more than 61 million babies were aborted sense Roe vs Wade in 1973.
The declaration of Independence states: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed
A declaration of a Christian nation: We hold these truths, that life begans at conception, that abortion is murder, that marriage is between one man and one woman, that Jesus Christ is returning soon, and He is our soon and coming King. Christians are commandment to walk in love. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Mercy and truth go before your face.
A case of mistaken identity: I say to you America: We are a Christian nation, America abortion is wrong, America we believe in the liberty and justice for all. The all people should be treated equally and fairly. America, you were raised up to establish the Kingdom of God and this earth. You are raised to defend that poor and the fatherless, you were raised you to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. In order to establish the identity of America, we need to establish the identity of the Christian.
2Corinthians 5-17 Therefore if any man be in Christ he is a new creature; old things are passed away behold all things are new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; to wit, that God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and has committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ stead be ye reconciled to God. In Ephesians: God has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. We should be holy and without blame before him, we are adopted children, we are accepted in the beloved, we have the forgiveness sins,
