This is the question I often ask myself.as in the world there are so many laws and regulations just to identify but What is the procedure and law of God to identify his people.
Every country has different procedures and laws to confirm an individual’s identity and citizenship.And above all these things there is universal Document “Passport” which is used to identify any individual’s Citizenship.his address, his city his country.this is the worldly way of identification of an individual’s identity.
Who is a true believer or follower of Christ….how he can prove his identity or identify as per God’s laws?what about the identity of the Believer or Follower of Christ…is it sufficient that he is a believer or Follower, does it guarantees that this person is eligible to enter into God’s kingdom.? I ask a question if I am Christian, regular goer of Church, read Bible daily before going to work…does all this guarantee my Identity in front of God?
We Fly to different countries only because we have Passport which is now a universal Document of Identification.which proves a person’s citizenship. But before going through the process of making Passport one has to submit all the documents which prove his identity…
What is the Procedure and Law to identify in God’s eyes?
We need to look into the scriptures to know who we are and what is our identity, how an on what was the conditions which base our entry to a kingdom of God.
The First and foremost thing is the identity of Christ. Let’s see what the scriptures say about it.2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things become new.”
It says anyone in Christ alone s a new creature and he became new….but how if we can say I am Follower or believer of Christ does it prove my Identity in him, if so then we should be proud that only we will be identified by God, if not then how it proves my Identity…Does it prove if I am a regular churchgoer, or having fellowship with believers or read the Bible daily without fail before going to work, or whether I Read KJV Bible or NIV or ESV or other Versions.on what basis God Identify or give his Judgement.
Here we can see what Jesus said to the people, what are the people who disqualified for the kingdom of God as according to Jesus they have no identification.
Matthew 7:21-23 “ 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.Many will say to me on 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?And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Self-denial is the requirement to Prove our identity in God’s eyes.
If we look Luke 9:23 “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.”Same criteria goes with If we look into the Galatians 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
What it says until I will be crucified with Christ, it means self-denial, we need to see and understand why Jesus crucified.. until we think deep inside within ourselves and realize his sufferings his pain, for us the story of Cross is waste.
Can anybody imagine the pain and sufferings Jesus bore on the cross?
Can we take the blame of others on ourselves for which the punishment is crucification….can anyone bear this punishment when you have not done anything wrong…No, Nobody can?
Now the third part of this process of identification is mentioned in 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “ What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which is God’s.”
Here The Identification is our body which is the temple of Holy Ghost and of God, it clearly says you are not your own but a heavy price has been paid for your Deliverance…which is the precious Blood of Christ….
For me, The blood of Christ is a Purifier a Cleanser.If you have noticed in water purifier it has a candle which soaked and cleanses the dust bacteria or other particles and gives a fresh pure water, that candle is Jesus who bore all kind of our infections and purify us….with his blood.
Blood of Jesus is also like an anzime for the Sins infected Brain, heart and soul environment and odor cleaner…it contains a triple anzyme complex An anti-oxidant (a substance that removes potentially damaging oxidizing agents in a living organism).and a pleasant fragrance….anywhere in our body where waste degradation.( It is now commonly associated with environmentally-friendly products, capable of decomposing back into natural elements.) Means any type of Waste born with our polluted mind or soul, turning them back to nature as God wants us as per his wish.) or odor control is needed his blood neutralize the odor and release the pleasant fragrance.
Take a look again on one scripture from (Ephesians 1:13)What is mentioned here that Who heard the word of truth this is our salvation and believed and was given a seal of holy spirit …Yes, so we know what is the eligibility to identify our identity in front of God.
God does not look or identify us Through our race or our color but he looks that identification mark of baptized through Christ as scripture of
Galatians 3:27-29 “ For as many of you as having been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye is all one in Christ Jesus.And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
Jesus said in John 15:16 “ You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring fruit.
That’s our final identification in God, and once it is marked by God. again in Ephesians 2:19 “Now, therefore, ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;”
And it is said that our conversation is in heaven means we got the NOC on our Passports from the Embassy of Heaven, read Philippians 3:20 “ For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.
There is Final Stamp or Authority is required on our Identification which is a sure shot entry to the kingdom of God, if we go through the book of Revelation 3:4-5 “Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment, and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.”
Now we can check our identity through these requirements, do we qualify it or not, if not then our Entry will be rejected, there is a little time left, the hour has come from sleep to awaken.
