True Identity-Part 1

God created man in his own image and that image is in his spirit. Every person has a body, soul and spirit. God is a Spirit and that means man’s true identity is in his spirit.

In Hebrews 1:5 the Bible says, “For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son”(KJV). God never said this to any of the Angels, but he has said it to his Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Son of God. However, he is not just the son of God; he is also a high priest. This has been possible because God made him a high priest.

In Hebrews 5:5-6 the Bible also says, “So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, today have I begotten thee. As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec” (KJV). Jesus is the Son of God and a High Priest as well.

When Jesus began his ministry he was tempted by Satan on the issue of being the Son of God. It is almost like the tempter wanted him to doubt who he was. Later in his ministry when a legion of demons saw him, they seemed to recognize him as the Son of the most high. In Mark 5:7 the Bible tells us that a man with an unclean spirit was crying out to Jesus. He cried out to Jesus saying, “… What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not” (KJV).

During the time when Jesus was being tempted the enemy was instigating a of sense doubt. He did the same thing with Eve in the garden of Eden. In Genesis 3:1 the Bible says, “…Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”(KJV).  If the tempter can get you to think that you are not who you really are, watch out because he could be stealing the mission of your life.
