Know Your Identity! A New Season of Strength and Authority!
Barbie Breathitt, North Richland Hills, TX
Jesus names us based on our future not on our past. He anoints our head with oil so that we know who we are in Christ and can gain an understanding of where we are going.
God is giving us new names (on a white stone) and expanded identities in Him that will reflect our new strength and Kingdom authority. “Therefore repent; or else I am coming to you quickly, and I will make war against them with the sword of My mouth. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, to him I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it” (Revelation 2:16-17).
A new identity means we need new connections, and new ways of doing things! “Behold I make all things new! Do you not perceive it?”
“Your power and authority are linked with your level of faith.
Faith is the gate that brings eternity into time! Faith releases the now of God that has already been predetermined in Heaven.“
“Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6).
“God will make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever” (Hebrews 13:21).
Identity Dream One
In my dream, I was at an airport. The officials at the airport would not let me pass through the gate to fly. The authorities took my purse and driver’s license (represents my identity). They kept saying, “This is not you!” I kept arguing with them and defending myself until I realized if I wanted to fly or move through the new gate into a higher more powerful realm, I had to take on a new name or new Christ-like identity before the angels would allow me to advance into a higher dimension of favor.
In order to take off into the sky to change the atmosphere I had to be conformed to the image of Christ in order to correctly utilize the power found in the names of God. Those who know their God shall do great exploits. So if we do not even know how to use the 365 different names of God how can we claim that we know Him?
Identity Dream Two
I was staying at a hotel (place of transition). I was in the restaurant and they would not let me charge my food to my room. I realized I didn’t have my purse with me. I went to the front desk to ask for a key to my room. They would not give me a key to my room without my driver’s license or some type of identification. I kept telling them that my luggage (elegant gifts, not baggage) and license was locked in the hotel room (temporary dwelling place). (Photo via PicServer)
By now, I needed to get in the room to get my luggage so I would not miss my plane flight (promotion). They would not believe that I was Barbie Breathitt. I could not gain access without becoming someone new in Christ.
What is God Saying About These New Identities?
Those who have gone with you up to this point may not be able to continue with you into the depths of where God is leading you in this season.
Become pregnant with the presence of God’s vision and purpose for your life. Get ready for the spiritual activation of your hidden gifts and talents. God wants to access everything that He has invested in you. Take a new direction to go beyond man’s opinions in order to enter into God’s desire for your life. Realize God is among us. Acknowledge His presence and make room for Him to move in your life in a profound way. Pray to open Heaven then ascend to gain revelation knowledge and descend to be sent out.
Champions overcome every obstacle so that their “river anointing” can overflow on the behalf of other people. Being more than a conqueror means those giants no longer show up to the battle for fear you will cut their heads off.
Instead of fearing the giants who have kept you out of your Promised Land, when God changes your reputation you are transformed from a person who used to back down into a “Person that is a giant-slayer and a force to be reckoned with!”
The Revelation 4:1–3 Door is Open in Heaven
The voice of the trumpet has spoken, “Come up here into the throne room of My Spirit, and I will show you what must take place after these things” (Revelation 4:1-2).
Heart transplants that are focused on the Kingdom of God coming to earth create movement in God’s throne room. Jesus is the Passover door of access that saves, heals and delivers. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life-path to everything you want, need or desire.
The keys to the Kingdom unlock the doors of heavenly access. “I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in Heaven” (Matthew 16:19).
“Jesus names us based on our future not on our past. He anoints our head with oil so that we know who we are in Christ and can gain an understanding of where we are going.“
The keys of God connect us to heavenly access by giving us ownership and authority that opens the double doors so that we can break through and then continue to follow through into the new.
The key of David and the mighty rock of Jesus’ Gospel message are necessary to take down the giants of opposition (religious and political spirits), which will unlock and open doors that give us access to a fresh vision for the future.
The key of David empowers us to be kings, friends and lovers of God, worshippers, psalmists, and shepherds who protect the flock against the lion and the bear. We become a giant-slayer, a warrior, and deliverer.
“He who has the key of David opens doors that no one will shut, and who shuts and no one opens. I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My Word, and have not denied My name. Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie – I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and make them know that I have loved you” (Revelation 3:7–9).
God’s Word will not return void. Your power and authority are linked with your level of faith. Faith is the gate that brings eternity into time! Faith releases the now of God that has already been predetermined in Heaven. Prophesy, pray, and decree according to the measure of faith to arise, expand and unlock doors of opportunity.
Prophecy is an encounter with God. Prophecy is a heavenly picture that gives us a godly perspective on our earthly and heavenly life. Prophecy empowers us to reach the destiny we were created to obtain in Christ. A prophetic word requires time to work within us to make us into the person God says we are. Remember the word tried Joseph. (Photo via Flickr)
The prophetic word is like a hammer that breaks us, removes our weaknesses and flaws so that God can rebuild us into God’s image. There is no time in the glory so eventually prophecy will cease. Then the glory realm will cover the earth.
“Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part; but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love” (1 Corinthians 13:8-13).
In Christ we can begin with the end result in mind. I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me.
