TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I created you with an identity. When you said “yes” to the offer of My blood, your identity was unlocked. Listen to Me. I will tell you who you are and give you a purpose for My glory.
THE BLOOD SPEAKS
I’m absolutely amazed that one of the things you can do today is find your identity according to your flesh. You’ve seen the DNA kits and heritage services, right? If you haven’t, you’ve either been under a rock or too occupied with Game of Thrones to notice. They’re everywhere!
One of the things folks are figuring out is that we’re all a bunch of “Heinz 57” – 57 ingredients. It’s absolutely shocking to me how folks will change their life because they found out they’re 5 percent Romanian. “Pastor Troy, I’m eating goulash every day for the rest of my life. It’s my heritage!”
That’s how geared we are to be identified by our own flesh.
Your flesh has the blood of Abel in it and that brother was a murderer. However, your spirit has the blood of Jesus in it and the blood of Jesus is not only superior, it actually speaks to your identity, purpose and destiny.
…to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel. – Hebrews 12:23-24
It’s interesting to me that this passage speaks about the “firstborn registered in heaven.” That’s you and me once we get saved. We’re those “spirits of men made perfect” by Jesus the mediator’s blood. That’s because His shed blood is now our supernatural blood – our DNA if you will.
Now, I’m not against you finding out your ethnicity and celebrating it. But I want to tell you something: your identity in Christ is a supernatural identity and it doesn’t come from your forefathers. It comes from your heavenly Father. That’s what you’re supposed to live out.
What is the blood of Jesus speaking through you? This is a good day to celebrate your supernatural DNA!
