WHO ARE YOU
John 1: 19-23. And this is the record of John when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? And he confessed and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No. Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself? He said I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.
The question, “Who are you? Enjoys prominent mention in the passages you have just read. Man has made many outstanding discoveries in the field of science and in other areas of human endeavour, but no discovery can be compared with self-discovery, it is possible for you to be born again, sanctified, spirit filled, yet know little or nothing about yourself.
Who are you? Is a very important question’ It’s like asking for your identity card. Ignorance about your identity can lead you to untold hardship. Ignorance in that regard can sentence you to perpetual bondage.
The issue of identity is very important, Jacob discovered that he was not properly positioned in the hereditary peer. He, therefore, decided to steal his brother’s blessing, thereby usurping his brother’s identity. But when he discovered his identity, he knew that he had to be changed before he could enjoy any real blessing.
So, one of Satan’s most effective devices is to confuse Christians with ignorance in the area of their true identity. He attempted that trick, on Jesus too. So, he will try it on anybody. He told Jesus if thou be the Son God, command these stones to become bread. By that statement, he was trying to make Jesus doubt His identity.
The example of the prodigal son is important here, he was bad and did a lot of terrible things. But it came to a stage in his life when he came to his senses. He realized his true position in life, then he said” I will arise and go to my Father. I have had enough of this rubbish sharing the dinner table with swines. With that decision, he experienced a turnaround in his situation. A change of identity ushered him into restoration, freedom, and abundance.
Today, many in the world do not know who they are. Their identities are shrouded in mystery. Some people hate themselves. This is the source of jealousy, fear, pride, deception, wickedness, anger, lesbianism, homosexuality, masturbation and all kinds of sexual perversion
If you fail to discover yourself, your potential will be completely paralyzed. If you love yourself, pray this prayer point with aggression
I REFUSE TO BE BURIED ALIVE, WITH MY POTENTIALS IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
Right now, so many people are dead while they are alive. Killing oneself is a straight way to hell fire and the only way out is through the name of Jesus. Also, pray that the Holy Spirit of the living God that dwells in you will to help you to find who you are before it’s too late.
I need a response. Thank you.
