Title: Knowing Who We Are and Who Christ Is

Notes:

In know who Jesus is we find out who we are in Him

Tonight Pastor Benjamin covered the importance of knowing who we are and who Christ is. We can not understand who we are until we know who Jesus is.

The early church only taught one thing. That is that Jesus is the only message of the church. One message - as in the apostle's doctrine (not plural - see Acts 2:42). The apostles didn't teach any other message (Acts 5:42). One message taught daily because our revelation about Jesus defines who we are.

Jesus knew your life would be full of confusion until you know who he is (Matthew 16:15). We can't know him through science or movies. They can't tell us who he is. We can only know him through the revelation of the word. Anytime you have a revelation about Jesus, heaven will focus attention on you (see Matthew 16:16-18). You can't get revelation of Jesus through the things of men (flesh). Why a rock? Rock is the Revelation Of Christ the King. By having understanding of Jesus it changes who you are. Your position in spirit is changed.

1 Peter 2:4 is the revealing of Isaiah 28:16 which was a prophecy about Jesus. The Stone. The foundation of the church is built upon stone/rock which is Jesus Christ - there is no power of hell that can affect your destiny if you have an understanding of Christ.

We talked about Daniel 2:34 which has interpretation in Daniel 2:45. A dream about the Kingdom of God coming - Jesus is represented in the dream as a stone. You also are a lively stome (1 Peter 2:5). This is our identity. If you become a lively stone the devil has no access to you. The people of the world cannot understand you because you are wired differently. Our friends don't understand when we don't want to drink, smoke, and get wild to have a good time. This is not what we need to have a good time and they just don't understand. (1 John 3:1) We are children of God - the world does not see who we are - so don't be mad at them because they don't know. They don't know because they don't understand who Jesus is. Everybody in the world is teaching you a lesson - learn patience and tolerance.

Our revelation of Christ will affect our knowledge of ourselves (1 John 4:17)

Here is your homework: Go and discover who Jesus is so you will know who you are.

A righteous man falls 7 times and continues to get up. As a child of God, Jesus should not be a mystery. Mysteries = secrets (Matthew 13:11) Everyone in the kingdom should be able to understand who he/she is in Christ. If you don't, you will be taken advantage of by the devil. Every child of God has access to this mystery (Colossians 1:27). The mystery is Christ in you!

If Christ is in you, you can't be overcome by the troubles of life. Everything the enemy throws at you, you will overcome because you have Christ in you. If you don't seek God in His Word, you won't get the blessings (Luke 4:22). When your understanding is limited, the enemy can take advantage of you.

Christ is our life. (say it: Christ IS my life!)

If your life is in Christ, you should live a life of victory (Colossians 3:3). Speak to your mountains. And don't speak negative things (Philemon 1:6). Every good thing which is in you is in Christ Jesus. There is victory in you. Don't let the negative things in your life mess you up. Stay positive!
