The Two Identities

The Bible clearly talks about two identities, about two options we can choose to identify with. “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” (1 John 4:4, KJV).

“He that is in you...” refers to the Christ in you, the hope of Glory. The same Spirit that rose Jesus from the grave lives in you. “He that is in the world...” refers to the man of flesh and blood. The Christ Identity versus the human identity.

What is interesting is that this is what Christianity has in common with Hinduism and Buddhism. Hindus talk about the “self” and the “Higher Self.” Buddhists talk about the “false self” and the “True Self.” I believe this is the same principle.

I believe that the path of Christianity is to let go of the human identity and to let the Divine Identity come forward. To come to pure Christ Consciousness, whereby the body is only used as a channel for healing, for miracles, for preaching, for Love.

God is Love. He has created us all in His Likeness. That means that we are, in essence, all Spiritual Beings. And we are on the exciting path of remembering just that! God has given us all the help and helpers to follow this path all the way. Thank You, Father!
