Where Is Your Identity Found?
This is such an important area to understand, because if a person does not understand this, the enemy can tied them up in knots, with endless genealogies and different accounts of history that will take them away from the major issue of salvation.
1Ti 1:3 A Warning against False Teachers
When I was on my way to Macedonia, I urged you to stay in Ephesus so that you could instruct certain people to stop teaching false doctrine
1Ti 1:4 and occupying themselves with myths and endless genealogies. These things promote controversies rather than God’s ongoing purpose, which involves faith.
People have things twisted, there are many atrocities that have happened in the past by many people groups and if someone was to try a reconcile them by human understanding and reasoning, they could never do it. This is why there are so many theories out there about certain events from the past.
How can you reconcile over 400 years of pan African slavery and the displacement of a whole people groups, with all of the violations of human rights that occurred in this time period, which to this day the ripple effects are still being felt?
How can you reconcile 6000 Jewish people being exterminated in Nazi Germany and all of the violations of human rights that occurred during that time period?
Or the genocide in Rwanda, Apartheid in South Africa, the list could go on and on. With human understanding you want be able to and a lot times there has been lot of propaganda that has gone on in the background, which distorts the picture even more.
However with all of these plans the enemy put in place, do you think for one second, they caught God by surprise? Our past is history but it is part of HIS STORY!
The enemy has been trying to sabotage HIS STORY for thousands of years and many of the things that so call historians run with, have been strategically placed by the enemy to send them off on bunny trails. However this has not taken God by surprise.
This is why God in his word says that we should never loose focus and keep our eyes fixed on Christ and understand our identity is in him:
Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
When we do this and look to the BIBLICAL Jesus, we will truly understand who we are:
Col 3:10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
Col 3:11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
People can say “well what are you trying to say Jason, are we just to forget about what happened to are people in the past?”
The answer to that is, “no of course not”, however in Christ we can reconcile it and in doing that God can take the pain away so we are not stuck in the past.
In Christ our citizenship is a heavenly one, our culture is a heavenly one and our family is a heavenly one. The knowledge of this will breakdown every barrier that is up and allow people to live out their Godly destinies.
This is why I hate the phrase “Black Church or White Church” There is no such thing, there is only THE CHURCH! And people should stop using these terms, as it is only promoting the enemies agenda.
Whole people groups should stop being erased from the biblical text and being replaced by others and text should view in the truth that it is.
God’s kingdom is going to have diverse people groups in it, ALL in the one Heavenly family and if people cannot understand that in this life, will they really have the qualities and heavenly characters to enter into eternity with Christ?

There is a difference between a true distributor and one who has just signed the application form.
