Truth is a key that unlocks doors. What doors are keeping you from functioning in the fullness of the purpose and calling of the Creator?
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” – John 8:31,32
So Yeshua said to the Yehudi sect that followed His teachings that if you “abide” (to stay, endure, remain) in my word or teachings, you are truly my discipline students or of my yoke or my followers and you will know or have knowledge of the truth and this truth will set you free.
I believe with proper identity we side step many of the snares of the enemy.
Removing the ambiguity of our collective identity creates a continuity that alligns us as a people that can facilitate autonomy. When ignorance is replaced with knowledge we gain a footing to build plans based off of vision. With proper identity we submit to wisdom and nurture purpose. Identity cultivates prosperity and reveals our inadequacies.
There several theories on the effects of the phscyology dealing with identity. What I have discovered is that when a certain group begins to identitfy with a state of being that is totally contrary to their current social identity then other groups must then adjust their social identity which will cause them to reject or accept that groups choice of identity. In a sense you are upsetting the apple cart.
There is a lot of professing of being awake lately!
I have found no shortage of those who want to define this awakening as everything from “a great falling away” to “the delusional” by those on the outside looking in.
In fact I have found that to critically think and question the mainstream ideology requires a courage that will offend most, because most don’t possess that courage.
Being AWARE isn’t in contrast of the truth, because the truth is a light that makes us all aware.
It was the moment that I realized I was lost without the Messiah that I became aware of my eternal need of redemption and requirement of repentance!
My wife and I watched the movie “The Birth of a Nation” by Nate Parker and we were greatly inspired and encouraged by our hero Nat Turner and his courage to give his life for the liberation of his and my people. There was a line in the movie where Nat Turner’s character says,” I now read this bible with NEW EYES” it is with new eyes that we become aware of the truth and gain the power to inspire others or AWAKEN others to the truth of who they are.
There are those who denounce Nat Turner as a lunatic and reject him as a hero, and definitely disagree that he understood the bible or was lead by the holy spirit to free his people. The rejection and demonizing of Black liberation is common in our society. Let me inform you that this line of reasoning is deeply embedded into the conscience, and black subjection is reinforced by this country’s christian society. Continue reading
Every structure is only as good as its foundation.
You are the product of your upbringing and bloodline so if your father was not present and you were given false information or are ignorant of your lineage your foundation is unstable.
If you were indoctrinated into scripture with malice intent and with manipulation as to keep you subjected and inferior than your faith is founded in half truths thus it is built on a corrupt foundation.
I am BIG on identity because I believe in my heart of hearts that if you don’t know who you are you will NOT be able to thrive in your God ordained purpose.
The Heavenly Father assigned identity to you, and likewise your father gives you your identity. You are not supposed to wander aimlessly in search of your purpose you are given your IDENTITY by your father and this IDENTITY establishes your purpose.
My father assigned me identity meaning he told me what distinguishes me and what I am to be persistent in, and his father gave him his, and his father his and so on and so on.
lineal descent from an ancestor; ancestry or pedigree
property that is or may be inherited; an inheritance.
Your identity is your BIRTHRIGHT!
You can not discount your heritage! In knowing your role in the community. Your heritage paints the picture and your God calls you to make it a MASTERpiece.
God has given you gifts and talents and in your submission to your father those abilities uplift your people while establishing you in your purpose.
The Revolution that killed Hip Hop is: IDENTITY.
“When you gain identity you will feel silly imitating a culture that isn’t yours. When you discover your true “identity” you will uncover the beauty in what you were “chosen” to be.
Every movement is a revival or a rebirth of what was lost or forgotten. New Jerusalem Renaissance is the rebirth of a culture we have lost, yet central to all of what humanity calls truth. God made you His but the world told you that you are worthless giving you a false identity in fear of the power that you would obtain if you operated as God’s masterpiece. When you wake up to the truth of who you are the enemy’s rule of bondage will begin to fall apart, because we know from the word that truth unlocks freedom.” – from The Revolution that Killed Hip Hop.
