Spiritual Warfare: Identity Point #4 - Where God Has Placed You
In Post 134 we introduced the topic of your position as a Spiritual Warrior in the order God has established. Understanding where you are stationed as a person in relation to the spirit world is very much a part of your identity and the power that you are able to exercise in the spirit arena for as Jesus has taught us, "according to your faith, even so will it be."
Who am I and who are you now that the mercies of God have broken through the clouds of darkness that surrounded your mind, bringing you out of the former state of disinheritance and into the estate of inheritance as a son or daughter of God?
The truth of the matter is, if you don't know who you are, you don't know who you are to be and the power that goes with the regenesis of being God by a miracle has now made you to be.
A gift given is useless to the one who has not taken possession of it yet and then put it to use in whatever capacity the gift was given to fulfill on your behalf.
The question now is, knowing there is in fact a power structure within the cosmos functioning first and foremost on the plane of the spirit dimension, where has God, our Father, placed us together with Jesus, within it?
So where do you fit? What confidence can you have that anything you would suggest into the hierarchy of spirit influences will have any effect at all?
We are told to be on the offensive and to take the battle to the enemy and to possess the gates the enemy currently occupies, but has God set us at a disadvantage in this battle, or will it be as Jesus said, “the gates of hell will not sustain?”
Let me take you on another quick trip to the beginning.
Remember God made Adam and Eve and placed upon them His covenant and divine mission.
Adam and Eve in turning their hearts from the covenant came under the power of the darkness, whose head is satan, and the result was and is this thing we spiritually call the world or, spiritually speaking is also call Babylon.
It is the world of spiritual whoredom in which man is wrongly deceived into thinking he is and will be his own god when in fact his emanations into the world are inspired by his new father (source of origin) whose influence he has come under, called the devil.
Into this muddied mess appears the Son of God, Jesus Christ.
He is another kind of human seed or as it says, the last Adam, who comes among us exercising complete power over the enemy because his operational base is of the eternal Father, the very highest level, God Himself.
Jesus terrorizes the darkness and goes about healing all that is discordant with the realm and rule of the Father. But He goes even further than this, willingly following the Father in perfect alignment all the way into the defiance of death itself, then in rising from the dead, defeating that enemy, he is raised up and seated permanently in Paradise at the right hand of God, the highest administrative elevation over all.
In all of heaven and in all of earth there is none higher than this man and the rank of power represented by his name with the exception of the Father, but the key is, he bears the Father’s name.
Thus we see mankind in Jesus the Christ, brought again to the place which the original covenant of God upon man destined humanity to be. With the man Jesus at the right hand of God, the plan can now move toward its completion. Restoration has occurred and humanity is free to move once again toward fulfilling their mission, if they adapt to the new paradigm.
And Jesus came and said to them, 'All power in heaven and in earth is given to me’ (Matthew 28:18).
But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for all sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, from that point on waiting in excited anticipation until all his enemies are made His footstool (Hebrews 10:12-13).
So what does this mean for you?
As men and women come to Jesus Christ, it establishes their position within the structure of powers. When we confess and acknowledge our deviance of heart from our true eternal purpose, for all have stepped outside of it and come short of the splendor of God (see Romans 3:23), we receive forgiveness and cancellation of the power of our errors over us as the blood of Jesus shed on our behalf covers our deficit, and as we turn our hearts to God, a powerful transition takes place.
We are translated from the lowest and last position in the hierarchy structures, to the highest position at the level in which our Lord Jesus Christ, our own shining example and Mentor is living.
For you have all become the sons of God by means of faith in Jesus Christ,
For, every one of us that has been baptized into Christ, have become clothed upon with Christ, having put him on.
There are no longer distinctions or classifications among us as Jews or Greeks, there is no longer any distinction or classifications among us as bond or free, there is no longer any distinction or classifications among us as male or female, for you are all one and the same in Christ Jesus.
And if you are Christ’s then you are the seed (singular) that had been promised to Abraham and heirs who are now blended together as one with the selfsame promise (Galatians 3:26-29).
Through well meaning but misguided instruction we have been under an identity crisis within the fellowship of the saints, or maybe it’s been doctrines of devils.
As a son or daughter of the Most High God we are elevated into the high region of the high throne and the high magic if you will let me use that word, in relation to all the spiritual powers of the universe.
We are priests of God in conjunction with Jesus Christ (the Yasha power within mankind) here, now within the universe of spiritual and physical creation after the eternal order of Melchizedek. There is no higher force or power other than that of our Father and the Champion and Head of our band of warriors, Jesus Christ the son of David, the Son of God.
Therefore, if any man is in Christ he is in and of the new creation. Old things have passed away, having been entirely nullified, and no longer possess any validity.
Look carefully and see, all things are become entirely new, and all things flow to us from God who has now reconciled us to Himself, and has also committed to our care the ministry of reconciliation (2nd Corinthians 5:17-18).
If you have been synergistically raised up together in synthesis with Christ, search out the high things, all of those things that are at the top, at the highest height from above, the things that exist now where Christ is seated at the right hand of God (Colossians 3:1).
But God who is rich in mercy, in the completely stunning measure of love by which He has loved us so deeply and so thoroughly,
Loving us even while our being was dead and destitute of life, having fallen down and away, has germinated within us the life of Christ (it is by sweet loving favor you are now rescued out of danger),
And He has synergistically raised us up together, and has caused us to sit down in the exact same place together within the enveloping existence of heaven enveloping Christ, who is Jesus (Ephesians 2:4-6).
We are ambassadors of the power.
The word ambassador means more than a secondary emissary but has everything to do with an advanced rank and power enabling one to exercise justice from their representative governance as one who is blessed by the higher power of the throne to do this very thing.
The ambassador of Christ is invested with the power to prosecute according to the higher kingdom that has triumphed over the one in defeat.
It is again flow through power, not distant but as a unified extension.
The word agape’ which is translated as love in English literally means, ‘no gap’.
