Solving the Identity Crisis of Christianity

The Bible clearly teaches that all who enter into the New Covenant (Brit Hadasha), Jer. 31:31-37; Ez. 36:26-27, by grace through faith in God’s Messiah , Jesus of Nazareth, are made new creatures in Christ. We have been born again, John 3:3, of an incorruptible Seed, I Peter 1:22-25.

Because we have this treasure of the new creation in an earthen vessel that contains all the old tapes of our carnal mind (the person we used to be who died with Yeshua, Rom. 6:3-4), we must understand God’s plan in this matter. This burden causes us to rely on God’s Word and His grace, because a war now exists, the battle is between the new person we are in Messiah and the carnal mind. The Apostle Paul explains that the struggle proves that there is now, no condemnation for those who are “in Messiah Yeshua.” Rom. 8:1-2.

Saving Faith gives us the ability to take God at His Word 

We must first believe what God says about us in Messiah is true. Without faith, we cannot please the Lord, Heb. 11:6. Taking God at His Word is the difference between a believer and a make-believer, between a religious sinner and a saint. What are we believing about ourselves and others of like precious faith? As a man thinks in his heart, so is he, Prov. 23:7, so what we believe really matters. 

Major in the majors, do not get sidetracked by the world, the flesh, and the Devil. The Apostle Paul summarized his letter to the believers at Galatia with two verses. Remember, circumcision = what you do according to the Law/Torah and uncircumcision = what you don’t do according to the Law/Torah. God’s Word instructs us with His wisdom concerning what is really important. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love, Gal.. 5:6. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation, Ga. 6:15.

God is always in control, Is. 45:7, 54:15-17; Pro. 16:4; Ps. 121. He works everything out for His glory and our ultimate benefit. That is why we can thank Him for all things, even the fiery trials, James 1:2. Even when things come along that are not good, Rom. 8:28, because God’s promises are always true, I Kings 8:56; Ps. 111:7, and He remains faithful to us and His Word, even when we are not, II Tim. 2:12-13.

We are in the Father and we are in the Son,  
so EVERYTHING IN OUR LIVES WILL BE  FATHER FILTERED! Rom. 8:28.




Look carefully at this diagram. Anything that comes at us in our lives must first pass through our heavenly Father. Then it must pass through the Messiah, then it will hit our funky flesh (that is why the first knee-jerk reaction of our flesh to our circumstances is going to be a fear-based, carnally driven response).

When you understand this, you will not fall victim to the fear-based lies of the world, the flesh, and the Devil. You will be able to go to the Lord in prayer and He will raise you up out of your circumstances so that you can see your situation from God’s point of view, the eternal perspective.  Remember, God sees the end from the beginning. It is His plan that:

Tribulations (Afflictions) ---> Patience (Cheerful endurance) ---> Experience (Proof that God is faithful in the valley as well as the mountaintop) ---> Hope (Confident expectation that all of God’s promises are true) ---> Love (Fruit of the Holy Spirit), Rom. 5:1-5 KJV.
