For anyone who is not aware that there is a war over good and evil, over what is pure and what is defiled, over light and darkness; for those of us living in the United States we have a living illustration as we view a “political war” taking place before our eyes. Although this article will not be about that particular war or my discernment on what is happening, I do want you to be aware that there is a war that we cannot ignore.
There is a war over your identity. The enemy falsely began accusing you as soon as you were old enough to understand having beliefs or thoughts about your value. My five year old grandson already understands this; he is now in kindergarten and already only wants to wear “cool” clothes (Nike is his “cool” of choice because of the swoosh) and he wants his hair done the “cool” way. Why? Because the enemy’s voice (through thoughts, through advertisements and through peers) has already caused a five year old to be self-conscious of the reality that he may not be good enough or acceptable enough before “men” apart from an outward display that conforms to the demanding human eyes that are watching.
If the enemy can slander you at a young age (a process he is highly skilled in) by casting doubt and negative self-image upon you then he can divide you from who God created you to be. Satan’s greatest fear is that you become aligned with God and His thoughts toward you, because if you do then nothing can stop you. The fear of man comes from an identity that has been divided from its divine design. Rather than living from a place of confidence and assurance before God, man begins to live to impress man which always demands more performance and perfection.
The war over all that Jesus shed His blood for is very real. Though the enemy knows that he has already been defeated, he is not going down without taking as many as he can down with him. He isn’t satisfied with a few; he wants an entire generation! He is after the identity of our children and our children’s children. It is the ultimate crime of “identity theft”!
If suddenly every person on our US Senate Judiciary Committee had a revelation of who Jesus is and who God created them to be, there would be no question and no war because no one would feel the need to lie, to divide, or to accuse. The individuals would see the beauty of Christ in one another and in His image in their own lives. They would come into unity and oneness with God and each other and true justice would prevail; bringing peace and harmony.
The war is over identity…God’s true identity (which is continually being misrepresented), over your divine identity that reveals Christ, over your children’s identity that brings a generational blessing, and over the identity of all of creation….which groans and waits for the revelation of God’s sons and daughters.
I call forth God’s identity protection and identity revelation over your life and the lives of your children. I call forth the revelation of the true nature, character and identity of God. I call forth the original intent (identity) in the heart of God over our nation and over the nations of the world. May God arise and divide the thief from your life and release upon you the fullness of the Giver of abundant life (John 10:10). I declare abundant life over you and our land!
