We WELCOME IN the New Year 2018!!!

My WORD for this year is simply...."GENUINE"!  I long to be completely sincere and GENUINE in my personal relationship with Jesus and with my family and friends.  There is noting that I love more than people who are REAL and themselves around me, so I hope to be that to others!

As I continue to HEAR the WORDS OF JESUS...and let them resonate in my brings me to such a place of PEACE and REST.  I have found that in the season , I am seeking to grow personally and really listen to the Lord.  I feel that I will continue to trust in the "SIMPLICITY of the GOSPEL"!!  We (myself included in the we) have made this SO MUCH MORE complicated than it has to be, and in the desire of making ourselves seem so much more "super spiritual" and "knowledegable" we have turned to eating from the "Tree of KNOWLEDGE of Good and Evil" instead of the "Tree of LIFE" (JESUS CHRIST)!!!  I am on a journey to really HEAR and OBEY the WORDS OF JESUS...because if I am to "KNOW HIM" I believe this is CRUCIAL in my personal walk with HIM!!!  My Heart's Cry is "OH, that I may KNOW HIM"....even deeper than ever.  

I once looked one of my very dear friends in the eye and said, "IF JESUS HIMself were to WALK THROUGH THAT WALL, and look you dead in the eye and say your name and say I want you to DO THIS, and to NOT DO THAT, would you do it?"  Her answer, as she is a mighty woman of God, was "Of course".  I said, "But unfortunately WE are NOT DOING THAT!". We have his words to us already in the four Gospel's and the entire BIBLE.   I have been on this quest to RE-READ the words that "JESUS SAID"...and really "HEAR THEM"!!! Not filter those words through my denominational mindsets, organizational 'articles of faith', or other beliefs that I have picked up on by listenting even to the wrong Christian leaders that say alot of things that tickle my ears through their teachings, conferences or books....but READ WHAT The Bible is saying from even Genesis to Revelation.  The HOLY BIBLE--ALL of it POINTS to CHRIST!!! So let us stop putting other IDLE words and things on the throne of heart--and REPLACE it with JESUS CHRIST who should ALWAYS HAVE FIRST PLACE on the THRONE OF OUR HEART!!  IDOLATRY in any form is still a sin.  Let us become GOD-pleasers and NOT man-pleasers!  Let us ALWAY PREACH JESUS CHRIST and the Kingdom--and stop preaching all those other things that only tend to make people SO DEPENDANT upon US and MEN and not UPON JESUS CHRIST!!  Let us stop preaching things that DO NOT POINT PEOPLE TO JESUS!!

JESUS died to redeem us back to our rightful place as sons and daughter's of GOD!  HE is our AUTHORITY OVER US...let us allow JESUS to take his rightful place and be our Apostle and HIGH PRIEST.  There is only one mediator between GOD and Man, that is JESUS CHRIST.  If Jesus is sitting at the right hand on the throne making intercession for us, why do we feel that man can usurp that position?  It bogles my mind how we have taken SOOOO many things out of this gospel and twisted it to fit our own plan and agenda, to promote ourselves and we have stopped promoting JESUS!!!

My prayer for this NEW YEAR is that we allow JESUS back into HIS BODY, HIS BUILDING, not built with man's hands, we are the TEMPLE...and allow HIM to REIGN in HIS rightful place once again!!


Let us LOVE GOD and LOVE PEOPLE ....the two GREATEST COMMANDMENTS we can keep!!

Let us STOP all the showboating, perfomance and grandstanding so others think we are so spiritual!

Let us STOP all the backbiting and devouring HIS BODY!! If you do it to "the least of these" you've DONE IT TO JESUS!!

Let us be a WITNESS of the LOVE and LIGHT of GOD wherever we go and to whomever we come in contact with!!

Let us not be guilty of sowing division and strife, but walk in UNITY with our brothers and sisters in CHRIST!

Let us TRULY be "GENUINE" in our LOVE for others and FOR HIM!

Generational Curses --- DEBUNKED


The teaching of “Generational Curses” has been taught mainly by those who have taken on the role of ministers of “deliverance”.  This teaching, as most, have been taken “out of context” as one verse, instead of the complete.  We as believers now live under a new covenant “grace”, but even under the old covenant, “the law” we find where God spoke to the nation of Israel as a whole on some issues.  Let us just read what the Lord God says about it….

Exodus 20:3-6--Thou shalt have no other gods before me.Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;  And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Here we read that GOD spoke all these words and reminded them to have no other gods or idols, to not worship or serve them….for THIS disobedience, he would visit the iniquity on the 3rd & 4th generation.  HOWEVER, GOD would show mercy to those that “LOVE HIM” and “KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS”.    SO…UNLESS you are worshipping and serving other gods, you are NOT UNDER A CURSE.  It’s pretty clear here.

God never left the Israelites (a nation) without hope or mercy…HE is LOVE and MERCY…which always overshadows judgment.  It seems that God dealt with the nation of Israel as a whole entire nation…(i.e.: Joshua 7:1, 11-15).

But we also read about his hope and forgiveness that was made available to them in the following verses if they choose to confess:

Leviticus 26:39-42--

39 And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemies' lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.40 If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me;41 And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:42 Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.

Numbers 14:19-21--

19 Pardon, I beseech thee, the iniquity of this people according unto the greatness of thy mercy, and as thou hast forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now.20 And the Lord said, I have pardoned according to thy word:21 But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord.

There are some that teach that a generational curse is only handed down to non-Christian family members; once a person accepts Christ, he is free.  They also teach that a child can be inhabited by the “family demon”, which can remain dormant until awakened by sin.  The cure is to repent of sin and remove the demon.  

Let us dig further into the BIBLE:

Jeremiah 31:29-34

29 In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge.30 But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge.31 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

Here we see where the children are not punished for their father’s evil and natural character…that each one will die for his own sin.  We also have an introduction to the NEW Covenant where the “law” will be written in our hearts, and we will know God and HE will forgive our iniquity and remember our sin NO MORE!!

And the latest and greatest explanation to me is the follow scriptures:….

Ezekiel 18--

18:1The word of the Lord came unto me again, saying,What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge?As I live, saith the Lord God, ye shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel.Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right,And hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither hath defiled his neighbour's wife, neither hath come near to a menstruous woman,And hath not oppressed any, but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, hath spoiled none by violence, hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment;He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man,Hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord God.10 If he beget a son that is a robber, a shedder of blood, and that doeth the like to any one of these things,11 And that doeth not any of those duties, but even hath eaten upon the mountains, and defiled his neighbour's wife,12 Hath oppressed the poor and needy, hath spoiled by violence, hath not restored the pledge, and hath lifted up his eyes to the idols, hath committed abomination,13 Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him.14 Now, lo, if he beget a son, that seeth all his father's sins which he hath done, and considereth, and doeth not such like,15 That hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, hath not defiled his neighbour's wife,16 Neither hath oppressed any, hath not withholden the pledge, neither hath spoiled by violence, but hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment,17 That hath taken off his hand from the poor, that hath not received usury nor increase, hath executed my judgments, hath walked in my statutes; he shall not die for the iniquity of his father, he shall surely live.18 As for his father, because he cruelly oppressed, spoiled his brother by violence, and did that which is not good among his people, lo, even he shall die in his iniquity.19 Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father? When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live.20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.23 Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord God: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?24 But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.25 Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your ways unequal?26 When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and dieth in them; for his iniquity that he hath done shall he die.27 Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.28 Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.29 Yet saith the house of Israel, The way of the Lord is not equal. O house of Israel, are not my ways equal? are not your ways unequal?30 Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord God. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.31 Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord God: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.

SOOOOOO…………we clearly see here that we are all responsible for our own spiritual walk…the SON does not inherit death because of what his father has done.

Can we please understand that we are NOW in a new covenant…where ALL things are made new…and where the BLOOD OF JESUS is enough to REDEEM us back to LIFE in CHRIST…back to SONSHIP with our heavenly Father! 


God took away the old covenant and established the new …

Hebrews 10:9-10--

Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

IT IS FINISHED….Let us labor to “REST” in the finished work of JESUS CHRIST!!  HE IS ENOUGH!!

November 21, 2017, 7:51 AM


I have not really made the time to write on my blog for a couple of months...and it seems that sometimes ALL of my life's obligations and demands get in the way and before I know it...poof...too much time has went by, so now I have so much in my heart to download....but I will start with some things that I believe are the top priority.

My heart's cry lately is ...."Oh that I may "KNOW HIM"!! And for me this is a daily process, and as I get to know HIM, I get to know the things in me that need adjustment.  If I truly call myself a "disciple and follower of JESUS" I walking as HE said to walk, and listening and OBEYING what HE said to do?  For me...just "calling" myself a Christian or disciple means nothing unless my actions back up my words....I always say ...."WALK YOUR TALK"!!

When I began this journey to re-read the "words of Jesus"...and I mean REALLY READ it...I began to see some things that HE told us to do and some things that HE told us to NOT DO.  So I guess my first question to ALL of us is....when we HEAR HIS SAYINGS and WARNINGS...are we APPLYING them to our lives??  OR...are we JUST IGNORING what Jesus said to do and instead incorporating our own man made traditions, agenda's, motives and even duties of how we "DO CHRISTIANITY" based on some denominational organization's "articles of faith" or rules, based on what we've learned in a University that sometimes is also governed or controled by man made beliefs and doctrines, or even based on our own selfish wants or needs for affirmation from a title, building or people?  ....OR....are we REALLY going to DO what JESUS SAID to DO???  Let us take a beat...a pause...a moment to really REFLECT on what we are doing and why??  If what we are doing does not ALIGN with not only the WORDS of JESUS, but also the HEART of JESUS...I would not hesitate to say that maybe we need to take this seriously and STOP?  There is SOOO MUCH we can really take away and apply from the words of JESUS.

But...back to the "KNOWING HIM" goal.  HOW do we know that we "KNOW HIM"?? 

1 JOHN 2:3-6  -  And hereby we do know that we KNOW HIM, if we keep his commandments.  He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.  But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.  He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

These verses state it pretty clearly that IF we KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS we know that we KNOW HIM...and that we should also walk as he "follow in HIS footsteps"...and do what HE did!  It really states it pretty clearly.  So I guess the thing would be to HEAR the sayings of JESUS and DO THEM.

There is a warning in Matthew 7:21-23...

Matthew 7: 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

We see here that NOT EVERYONE will ENTER into the kingdom of heaven...BUT he that DOES the will of the Father.  IT is very sobering to also read that there will be those that are prophesying, doing deliverance ministry and operating in "wonderful works" or performing miracles....and the Father will say....DEPART FROM ME...HE even says they "WORK INIQUITY" (wickedness).   WHAT?? WOW!!! Allow that to really "sink in"!!  You mean to say that when we see this, it is not always something pleasing to the heart of GOD??

We will continue to read on in Matthew 7:24 what JESUS SAID....

Matthew 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

That means that IN ORDER to DO what HE SAYS....first it requires us to HEAR HIS SAYINGS!!  So let us NOT take for granted and ignore what JESUS SAID!!  We also read on in Matthew 7....

Matthew 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.  26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: ‚Äč27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

This says that if we do not build upon the rock...and we build upon sand (unstable)--that "GREAT" will the fall be.  So we want to START first by BUILDINIG a FIRM FOUNDATION (on the rock) that will weather ALL the storms of life!  This starts FIRST by HEARING and DOING what JESUS SAID to DO and NOT TO DO!!  

I mean really...if JESUS walked into your living room (HE can do that)...and looked YOU specifically in the eyes and said STOP IT...would you?? If JESUS also specifically gave you a command or direction....while he is right up in your face...would you DO IT??  

THEN WHY....ARE WE NOT DOING IT NOW??  We have HIS WORDS right before us...maybe it's time to revisit "the words in red"??  Please let us not ignore the words of Jesus.

When you are doing "official ministry" or have a "program"...let us remember ALL the words of Jesus.

Let us LOVE one another as HE loved us...(John 13:34)...not love one another as we see fit. 

John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

It says that all men will know we are a "DISCIPLE" if we LOVE ONE ANTOHER.  Let us NOT BAN someone from our program or ministry because they didn't meet "our expectations"!  Let us give to all those that have need, not to get something in return (praise or gratititude).  Let us  remember the "LEAST OF THESE" our daily walk.  Let us be the LIGHT and SHOW THE LOVE OF CHRIST to ALL!!

As I continue to read...for me is serious that I NOT IGNORE these words in red...the words of JESUS!!  Let us read what HE says in Matthew 25....

Matthew 25:31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.  34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Let us remember that whatever we do to others...what some may consider "the least of these"...we DO IT TO HIM...JESUS!  I want to be one of those that at HIS return...will be considered a "sheep on the right" that will be "blessed of the Father and inherit the kingdom and life eternal.  I DO NOT WANT to be a "goat on the left" that HE will say to them "DEPART YE CURSED into everlasting fire and punishment"!  

When we come to the realization that JEUSUS came to break us out of a judgemental "pious religion" and bring a new covenant...a REFORMATION (Hebrews 9-10) of how HE wanted us to live and exhibit the heart of the Father and demonstrate the kingdom wherever we go.

Let us continue to HEAR the words of JESUS and to DO THEM!!!  Let us speak life and encouragement to others...not using our little pointy finger and poking it in their chest to remind them of how much a "sinner" they are (all things are made new).  Let us demonstrate the unselfish, sacrificial, unconditional LOVE of the FATHER...the LOVE that DIED for us.

More..."JESUS SAID it" to follow...stay tuned ...











September 18, 2017, 12:00 AM


My prayer for all of you is that you will...."KNOW HIM"!!  The last few months have been filled with a lot of reflection in where I am and where I need to be...and my heart's cry is still I ALWAYS need to be "IN HIM" ... ABIDING .... IMMERSED INTO HIM!  

The last few mornings, the Holy Spirit has awakened me early with a "heavy burden"...that has moved my soul to travail over His children.  There is an urgency to  point people to CHRIST...because HE is soon to return...a future that has been fortold to us in Matthew prayer is that we will all be READY for the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory!

It greives me to my core when I see people chasing a lot of things and not chasing HIM!  When you are in ministry for a tend to see a lot of things that you never ever imagined you would see.  The most gut-wrenching thing is when there are anointed men and women of God that are "FAITHLESS"...not TRUSTING in the WORDS of JESUS HIMSELF...and NOT TRUSTING in what JESUS DID as ENOUGH!

When we look at faith and what that means to GOD in Hebrews 11:6, we see where it is IMPOSSIBLE to PLEASE GOD without it...that HE rewards those that diligently seek HIM!   What is FAITH?  In Hebrews 11:1 it says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."  It is a thing that we cannot see, touch or taste...but will move our hearts to action..the action of believing which brings us to a confession, that JESUS CHRIST is my Lord and Savior, the Messiah, my eternal salvation!  We are all given a gift of faith..a "measure" is given to each of us.  We also read in Romans 10:17 that says our FAITH COMETH by hearing, and hearing by the WORD of GOD.    Who are you "HEARING" it HIS WORD??  JESUS said a lot of things in the gospels...are we really "HEARING" HIM...or do we get to just pick and choose what we want to hear, cafeteria style faith??  If this is so....You are not HEARING the COMPLETE GOSPEL of JESUS!

So question for all is not only what but WHO are you SEEKING??  WHO or WHAT are you HEARING??  

Jesus told his disciple Thomas that came to him in doubt...that needed to SEEK a physical see...HIM, before he would believe...We read in John 20:27 JESUS SAID, "Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: .... 

So Jesus humoured his doubting disciple by again POINTING Thomas back to HIMSELF--JESUS in natural realm...BUT we also see where JESUS said after Thomas did this...."and BE NOT FAITHLESS, BUT BELIEIVING"!  Jesus went on to say in verse 29..."Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed:....And then we see where it is we receive the blessing..."blessed are they that have NOT SEEN, and yet have believed."

We also go on to continue to read where it states in verse 30 that many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are NOT WRITTEN in this book: (again a semicolon after this statement...must mean there is an additional continuation of thought) verse 31  it states, But these are written, that ye might believe that JESUS is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

The point is...all the other signs are NOT WRITTEN in our book BECAUSE ALL THESE that are ALREADY WRITTEN are ENOUGH...ENOUGH TO BELIEVE!!

So in our journey...let us just have FAITH in our LORD JESUS and what HE has spoken to us through HIS WORD ....What Jesus said is ENOUGH!!

STOP SEEKING other things that you can see and touch in order to simply ..."BELIEVE".  

There is NO OTHER MIRACLE on Earth that will ever compare to what JESUS did for us on the cross,  and what HE is doing and will do for US!!  JESUS has always been pointing us to HIM....HE is the ONLY SIGN we need.... Matthew 12:38-41 tells us this!!








July 19, 2017, 11:34 AM


I have been on a search for "TRUTH"...HA...the words of TRUTH!  Oh that I may "KNOW HIM"...TRUTH!  Truth is not a theology, doctrine, or rules of the "knowledge of good and evil"  Truth is a WHOM...JESUS!  Colossians 1:28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:.

We hear a lot of teaching today about "Identity Crisis" in the Body...because usually through tragic circumstances or whispers of the enemy, people have been led to believe a lie of who they are "IN CHRIST".  But I believe in order to know who we are In Christ, we have to "Know Christ" and who He is ...his essesnce and every detail of the fullness of the Godhead. 

If we re-read the New Testament without a religious filter, and look for the identity of Jesus in the scriptures, we will read that JESUS is always pointing people back to Himself.  Interesting that Jesus would build his church on the revelation that HE is THE CHRIST, the son of the living God!  In Matthew 16:13, we see where Jesus asked a quetion,...13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”.  Simon Peter answered it with the revelation he had of who Jesus was... 16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”  In a lot of stories we see where JESUS was always declaring himself .... John 6:35 And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.  That when an evil and "faithless" generation "doubted" who He was...he stated that all that is WRITTEN in THIS BOOK will be all that you need to believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God... John 20:31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.  No other "MIRACLE" other than the "Ascended Christ" was needed to "BELIEVE".  Jesus went into places that NO RELIGIOUS zelot or Pharisee would dare go, to meet a woman at a well.  This woman was sitting in front of TRUTH! She said in John 4:25 The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will tell us all things.”  Again, we see Jesus pointing people to HIMSELF as He responded to her ... John 4:26 Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He."  

So as we continue to SEARCH and SEEK after TRUTH, Jesus will continually point to Himself, that HE is ALL WE NEED.  Colossians 2:For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.  The Holy Spirit will continue to point to JESUS!  Jesus is the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE!!  John 14:Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

So if you begin to question who you are, first discover who HE is...and IN HIM you will be complete.

If you wonder "what" to've gotten off track...PREACH HIM!!!  Colossians 1:28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

Paul said it best when he spoke in Philippians 3:Yet indeed I also count ALL things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; 10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, 11 if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.

OH THAT I MAY "KNOW HIM"!!!  This is my heart's cry...

"Christ is:  your Shepherd, your Advocate, your Mediator, your Bridgroom, your Conqueror, your Lion, your Lamb, your sacrifice, your manna, your smitten Rock, your living water, your food, your drink, your good and abundant land, your dwelling place, your Sabbath, your new moon, your Jubilee, your new wine, your feast, your aroma, your anchor, your wisdom, your peace, your comfort, your Healter, your joy, your glory, your power, your strength, your wealth, your victory, your redemption, your Prophet, your High Priest, your kinsman redeemer, your teacher, your guide, your liberator, your deliverer, your Prince, your Captain, your vision, your sight, your beloved, your way, your truth, your life, your author, your finisher, your beiginning, your end, your age, your eternity--your all and all. 

Christians don't follow Christianity; they follow Christ.

Christians don't preach themselves; they proclaim Christ.

Christians don't preach about Christ; they simply preach Christ.

Christians don't shout from the rooftops, "Come to church"; they shout form the mountains, "Jesus Christ is born--COME to CHRIST"!

Christians don't point people to core values; a doctrine, traditions, 12-step programs; they point them to the incarnated, crucified, resurected, ascended, enthroned, exalted, triuphant, glorified, reigning Lord--Jesus of Nazareth, the King, the Messiah--the CHRIST beyond the tomb."  "Jesus Manifesto"

JESUS....JESUS.....JESUS....HE is ALL we need to discover who WE REALLY ARE!!
