Who Are You?

I was watching “The Ten Commandments” the other day, you know the one with Charlton Heston and
Yule Brenner, where they had a burning bush that didn’t burn and the plagues and the parting of the
Red Sea and all of that. Well in that scene with the burning bush, God tells Moses to take off his shoes
for the ground that he stood on was holy ground. That was all so cool! Standing in the presence of God
Almighty, standing on holy ground, talking with God! I don’t care who you are, if you are a Christian you
would like to have an experience like that. However, seldom does the Christian read the Bible to see
what they have in Christ Jesus and when they do read it it is so big that they don’t believe it. What we
have in Christ Jesus makes the burning bush pale in comparison.
We have not been taught who we are and what we have. It is time that we believe God’s Word, the
truth of WHO WE ARE and walk like it! Stand erect, throw your shoulders back take a deep breath and
declare that “I am a son of God and have what God says I have!”
Romans 8:16-17 (KJV)
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer
with him, that we may be also glorified together.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (KJV)
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost (spirit) which is in you, which ye
have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Colossians 1:26-27 (KJV)
26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to
his saints:
27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles;
which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
When you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart God raised him from the
dead (Rom. 10:9,10) you get something that no one else, other than Christians, has – holy spirit abiding
within AND it cannot be taken away. You can’t lose it, you can’t back slide out of it. It is yours, it is you
for all eternity. The reason that you don’t see it is because it is spirit. You cannot taste, touch, smell, see
or hear spirit, but, it is there. That is why God says you are a new creature (II Cor. 5:17)
God calls all of our trials and afflictions “light” when compared with the what we have coming.
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 (KJV)
17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal
weight of glory;
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things
which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.See I told you! You can’t see it, but, it is there.
Are you starting see that what we have is sooooo much more than one meeting with God on a
There is still more, much more to who we are.
1 Peter 2:9 (KJV)
9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should
shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
2 Corinthians 5:18-21 (KJV)
18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the
ministry of reconciliation;
19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto
them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s
stead, be ye reconciled to God.
21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of
God in him.
We are ambassadors in Christ’s stead! We are a royal priesthood! We are sons and righteousness of
God! Literally, everywhere you tread is holy ground!
Ephesians 1:3-14 (KJV)
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual
blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be
holy and without blame before him in love:
5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to
the good pleasure of his will,
6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches
of his grace;
8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he
hath purposed in himself:
10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in
Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose
of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.
13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in
whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto
the praise of his glory.Hebrews 4:16 (KJV)
16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to
help in time of need.
James 1:5-8 (KJV)
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and
it shall be given him.
6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the
wind and tossed.
7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
You, as a Christian, have direct access to God. You don’t have to wait to climb a mountain. God is there
with you and He never leaves you or forsakes you.
There is so much more on who the Christian is and what the Christian has, but, I am only going to give
you one more attribute of the Christian, you as a Christian have the capacity to love and bless others far
beyond anything anyone else in the World can do.
1 Corinthians 13:1-13 (KJV)
1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as
sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and
though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned,
and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be
tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when
I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then
shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
“Charity” is not a very good translation. A much better translation for charity is the love of God in the
renewed mind in Manifestation. A love that extends beyond the borders of man’s understanding.
So, it is now time to stand up, throw your shoulders back take a deep breath, rise above the crowd and
