Hebrews 4:2: For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith of those who obeyed.
All of us I am sure are familiar with the science of Human DNA, it is in our blood… when a sample is taken of our blood DNA it reveals so much about a person and believe it or not most humans share close to 99.2% of the same genetics… AMAZING. DNA can expose hidden revelations concerning our level of health or even potential health risk, it can stand up as evidence in court cases to prove guilt and innocence and it reveals our heritage, lineage and ancestry.
As Christians we should be curious as well as aware of our Spiritual DNA… Who are we in Christ? What does the Word of God report as our Spiritual DNA? First of all as with human DNA we must realize that our Spiritual DNA is a matter ALSO of BLOOD. The Blood of Christ. Our Spiritual nature MUST supersede our natural character. When we become one with Christ we are the Spiritual children of God our Father.
We MUST know who we are in Christ if we will ever walk in the benefits of His Great sacrifice for us. So many of us find it difficult to obtain the fruition of what is ours in Him. We feel that we do all that is required without seeing the fruit of our efforts. Many spend hours quoting and learning Scripture BUT this is only of benefit if we get to know Him INTIMATELY. Jesus Himself said:
Take My yoke upon you and LEARN OF ME, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matt 11:29
I often talk about the promises of Christ being in the here and now and not in the great by and by, because I want you to know what is available to us NOW. The Cross opened doors HERE AND NOW. To keep us until the day of the Lord’s coming, equip us for Kingdom employment and Kingdom living… HERE AND NOW.
Jesus said: Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in My name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!
Then why are we not doing greater things what are we lacking… I believe the great keys to moving into that deeper more intimate space with God starts with these 3 things FAITH/HOPE, OBEDIENCE AND LOVE.
According to the Apostle Paul in Hebrews 4:2: For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith of those who obeyed.
To live an effective Christian life it is imperative to KNOW and BELIEVE who we are in Christ. Understanding our identity in Christ is crucial to living life as God intended. The best way to renew our mind and experience inner transformation is by knowing, living, thinking and speaking out loud who we are in Christ and spending quiet moments in prayer and meditation with God our Father in Heaven. Then we must GET OUT INTO THIS WORLD AND LIVE CHRIST.
God’s promises are not just some future reward that we receive….
My Grandmother sang:
By and by, when the morning comes,
when the saints of God are all gathered home,
we’ll tell the story how we’ve overcome,
for we’ll understand it better by and by.
I SING… All of God’s Promises to us is HERE & NOW!
2 Corinthians 1:20-21 says: For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was proclaimed among you by me and Silvanus and Timothy, was not “Yes” and “No,” but in Him it has always been “Yes.” For all the promises of God are “Yes” in Christ. And so through Him, our “Amen” is spoken to the glory of God ~
Your day of Salvation is HERE & NOW!
2 Corinthians 2:6 says: For He says, “In the time of My favor I heard you, and in the day of Salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of Salvation.
Your healing is Today HERE & NOW!
1 Peter 2:24 says: “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”
This is our Spiritual DNA report in PART:
Hebrews 4:2 For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith of those who obeyed.
1 John 1:7 – “If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”
Ephesians 1:7 – “In Whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.”
Revelation 12:11 – “They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
Our lineage has been established in and by the Blood of Jesus who is the Anointed Christ of God. This is the outcome of our Spiritual DNA report: As a believer you have God’s DNA in your spirit!
