And the Lord has declared this day that you are his people, his treasured possession as he promised, and that you are to keep all his commands. (Deuteronomy 28:18, NIV)
It was of His own will that He gave us birth [as His children] by the word of truth, so that we would be a kind of first fruits of His creatures [a prime example of what He created to be set apart to Himself—sanctified, made holy for His divine purposes]. (James 1:18, AMP)
Understanding who you are is keen to winning the battle against Satan and his demons. The scripture says you were made for God’s divine purpose which means that you are not ordinary. You are God’s prized possession, His masterpiece, created anew in Christ Jesus so you can do the good things he planned for you long ago (which is his divine purpose).
In Ephesians 2: 6, we are told that God raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. And one may ask;
- Where is Christ seated?
Ephesians 1:20-21 says that the mighty power of God raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come.
- Where is your present position?
You are seated with Christ in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms, far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else not only in this world but also in the world to come.
- Satan’s Agenda
Your enemy’s agenda is to keep you from knowing the truth about your identity. But thank God that Jesus said you will know the Truth and the Truth will set you free. (John 8:32, NLT)
- Going Forward
When Satan, through his demons and/or agents, tries to remind you of your past and/or the things you have done wrong in your yesteryears, you have to remind him of your position in Christ Jesus, not forgetting to add his (Satan) present position (which is under your feet) and his future (eternal destruction in the lake of fire).
