                        Who I Am In Christ

                             Biblical Truths to “Practice Believing”

This post sums up who we are as believers in Jesus Christ…  Take a look down this exhaustive list, and you begin to see that God makes promises in His Word that have to be experienced to be believed !!

For many, this list of Biblical truths is just a long list of words, that don’t have much meaning…  But for the “born again” Christian, these are words that give hope, a new life in Christ, and promises that God is going to keep, because God can’t lie…

God is truth, and love, and perfect in every way…  God is sovereign, in that He controls everything in our lives…  Once we understand this…and have experienced the blessings of the fruit of the Spirit, that God wants every one of His redeemed children to grow and mature…we shouldn’t want to live our lives in our own strength…

Since God doesn’t make any mistakes…all we have to do is be obedient to the leading of the Holy Spirit that God has indwelt in every one of His children that have been graced with the free gift of salvation…Ephesians 2:8-9…  For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.  (ESV)

When we walk in the Spirit (Galatians 5:16)…we won’t be prone to fall prey to the lusts of the flesh… The Apostle Paul commands us to be filled with the Spirit, in…Ephesians 5:18-20…  This “being filled with the Spirit” is a moment by moment walk, in and by the FULL power of the Holy Spirit…  An excellent description of what it means to “Walk in the Spirit”, can be seen with great detail in this link…  https://bible.org/seriespage/5-spirit-work-spirit-filled-life

I pray every reader scans down this long list of scripture, and reads some of these scripture verses…  God’s Word is living and powerful (Hebrews 4:12), and it can change lives !!   If you are not a “born again” Christian, I pray open this link for a presentation of the Gospel of Christ…  If you feel urged to open this link, it could be the Holy Spirit drawing you in (John 6:44), to seek Christ by understanding you cannot save yourself…and then by understanding and obeying the Gospel of Christ…you too can experience all the blessings a life living for Christ will provide…

Blessings in Christ,  bruce

The Benefit of Using This List

Satan is a liar and the father of it. He deceives the nations and deceives Christians into thinking his

lies are true. He is the accuser of the brethren, who accuses us before the throne of God.

Zechariah 3 depicts the scene before the throne of God where the saint stands in tattered garments

and Satan at his right hand making incessant accusations against him. The Lord steps in by

commanding the angel of the Lord to clothe him in new garments clean and white, to put on him a

turban. And the Lord declared:

“I have caused your iniquity to pass from you, and I will clothe you

with change of raiment.”

The Revelation of Jesus Christ declares (Revelation 3:5, Revelation 3:18, Revelation 4:4) that the

saints are clothed in white raiment that the shame of their nakedness does not appear.

  • Revelation 3:5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out

his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

  • Revelation 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white

raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint

thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

  • Revelation 4:4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four

and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.

Revelation 12:10 declares that “the accuser of our brothers is cast down, who accused them

before the throne day and night.”

Romans 8 is even more emphatic when it says, “Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s

elect? It is God that justifies. Who is he that condemns? It is Christ who died, rose again, and

sits at the right hand of God making intercession for us.”

Too often believers believe the lies and accusations of the enemy. They either are ignorant of what

God has said or they willingly disbelieve it based on their “feelings.” We do not need to feel

anything! God’s truth is God’s truth. “Let God be true and every man a liar.” (Romans 3:4 )

We need to learn who we are in Christ and confess the same out loud. I am what God says I am

regardless of how I feel about myself. My feelings cannot change the absolute truth of God’s

word. We need to see ourselves in the light of God’s word. Once we have heard and seen God’s

truth we are to RECKON it to be so. “Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto

sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.” – Romans 6:11 The word reckon is

“logizomai” in Greek, which means to calculate, count it up, logically sum it up as so. Sum up

what God says as true and leave the rest
