WHOSE CHILD ARE YOU?
There are two spiritual influences that govern you in your life and they commence their works upon our birth. One is evil and presents lies while the other loves and produces only the truth. The evil influence is present at birth because of our sinful nature but thanks to God he brings love and grace.
“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God has set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God (Romans 3:23-25)”.
These influences are rulers of their own Kingdom and as Fathers have their own children that act like them. Just like you act like your father or parents in the natural realm, so is true in the spiritual realm. When a child is born in the world they both have a natural and a spiritual father.
As that child grows it will act and copy whatever they see and hear. Whatever the father or parent does the child does. They don’t reason or put logic in what they do, they just copy or mimic. Even as babies, can one see traces of a sinful nature that we inherited. Toddlers are not taught to lie but we hear them come out of their mouths and respond with shock reactions and wonder where that came from. It came from the spiritual father who lies and hates. Unfortunately, we are not taught these things nor observed them as we were growing up.
If you ask them why they did it, they would say I don’t know. If their natural father says bad words, the child will say them, not knowing the meaning of them. Same with the behavior they see, they simply copy it.
“Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, we be not born of fornication; we have one Father even God. Jesus said unto. If God were your Father, you would love me; for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself but he sent me. Why do you not understand my speech? Even because you cannot hear my word.
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father he will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
And because I tell you the truth, you believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God (John 8: 41-47).
WHOSE CHILD ARE YOU?
We are born into a sinful nature because we inherited it from Adam and Eve when they both disobeyed and ate the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil after being tempted by Satan.
Through the temptations from Satan, first making her doubt what the Lord said to her and then twisting the Word of God (perversion) and lying to her saying she would not surely die. He went even further in deception by appealing to her pride; she wanted more knowledge than given by God already, and out of pride and disobedience she ate and gave to her husband and he ate. This is where SIN enters the earth.
‘Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. (Genesis 3:1-6 KJV).
Satan is still doing the same thing at this very hour through deception and temptation. He perverts the truth and convinces one to step out of the will or protection of God.
WHOSE CHILD ARE YOU?
Children are supposed to obey and trust their father or parent. But without spiritual discernment, blinders removed, and the ability to hear the truth; we are left becoming a victim from the evil one tactics. We go through life thinking that we are OK, and the rest of the world agrees. Only through revelation and the pulling of the Holy Spirit can we discover that the devil is manipulative and his method of operation (MO) is to lead us away from the TRUTH through lies, deception and temptations. Until we can hear the truth of the Word and grasp the understanding that we are being deceived, we will only hear what the kingdom darkness presents.
1John 2:16-17 King James Version (KJV)
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever.
The same type of temptations that Satan presented to Jesus when he sent into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit are described above; the lust of flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. But they are not of GOD but of this world. We would see the enemy tactics all around us if we took the time (that we do not have) to observe. Yet, therein is another trap; the world or society prompts us to work at a fast pace, make quick decisions, and sometimes we become upset when things (Nouns) move slower than we think it should.
Galatians 5:17 says “For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would”.
We have two keys here to unlock being used and abused by the devil begins with receiving the first by Receiving Jesus, the Only Key that unlocks bondages and burdens. Jesus was sent to set us free and secondly, he has given us keys and gifts to stay free. Without accepting and believing that he was here and went through what we are going through and receiving the freedom that only he can give; we (you) will remain in bondage, slavery, and the Kingdom of darkness. Receiving Jesus transfers one into his Kingdom of Light. Finally, your eyes will begin to see the traps and snares of the enemy because the Word of God will enlighten your soul. We must choose to live in the LIGHT instead of the Darkness. No decision means no LIGHT, it is an individual and personal thing.
Satan tempted Eve with Pride – a sin that he was guilty of practicing. In Isaiah 14:12-17, Satan (Lucifer) is exposed and mentions that he wanted to be like God, BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD and he will not share his glory.
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?
Scriptures in the Word of God clearly defines characteristics and behaviors of ones that are still in darkness and mimicking the Devil or those who have chosen to receive Love and all its benefits. A few are presented below just in case one is still trying to reason, are confused or not yet convinced of where they stand. There is NO middle ground and one is in darkness (volunteering or consciously made that decision by not believing and receiving) or in the LIGHT where it is revealing daily what is and what is not of GOD through the Word of God.
Hint: you can not do this by yourself (transfer from dark into light); a decision to come out of darkness means an action to receive the LIGHT has been made.
SO, WHOSE CHILD ARE YOU?
The Word of God in Matthew 7:16-20 (King James Version) says that we should check our fruits. Is it good or evil?
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
What about your (our) works and or deeds?
Galatians 5:16-26 says that we can check ourselves by looking in the mirror to see if we are found in the works of the flesh instead of walking in the Spirit and displaying the fruit of the spirit.
“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
Let’s go to Romans 1:24-31 and read what is going on right this moment but also search our own hearts for it is a HEART thing.
“Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
We must see ourselves, for we are responsible first for what we say and do and when we get the understanding and find ourselves walking in the spirit, faith and love; then we can extend our hands out to mankind to point them to the TRUTH that only comes from God through Jesus Christ.
For we are in the last days and everyone must make a choice and no one can make it for you. A reservation must be made here on earth to ensure that you are in the Kingdom of God’s dear son, Jesus or whether you will spend eternity in Hell (darkness for ever and ever).
Daily we see the manifestations of rebellion against God, selfishness, and the works of the Satan. Read 2 Timothy 3:1-5.
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
The choice of your spiritual Father brings along his personality and character. Therefore, one must be careful of whom you choose because it not only governs your behavior but also determines your destiny, When we begin to understand some of these truths (everything in the Word of God is TRUTH), we can effectively surmise whether we are in the light or dark. Remember, it is a choice, and no one can make it for you.
So, WHOSE CHILD AM I AND WHAT IF GOD IS NOT MY FATHER?
Good news, read the scriptures change which Kingdom you are in and where you will spend eternity.
In John 3:3-8 we find that Jesus answered the same question:
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
There is no exception to the rule, all mankind must be born again, and a decision must be made to transfer from darkness to light and out of the Satan’s bondages. Don’t let him deceive you and blind you from the truth.
Jesus was sent to destroy the works of the devil, read 1 John 3:7-10 and it is as such:
Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
Good News!!! God loved the world (mankind) so much he sent Jesus and he tells us why:
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
In John 1:9-10 reveals it’s about your heart (check it) then confession:
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
Romans 10:9-13 reveals it is HEART thing, God is after your heart, so we must confess with our mouth and believe what we are saying to receive what we are asking.
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Once we confess with our mouth and repent of our sins, we must follow through by getting baptize in Jesus Name and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Read Acts 2:37-38 for their instructions and everyone must do the same:
“ Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost”.
IN CONCLUSION: WHOSE CHILD ARE YOU
When you do an honest heart check and look at your own works and fruit and find that you are still in the Kingdom of darkness there is GOOD NEWS.
There is only one way out and it is through:
– choosing to be transferred to the KINGDOM OF LIGHT
-confessing with your mouth and believing with your heart by receiving Jesus Christ into your heart
-being baptize in Jesus name and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit.
So, I believe that you have read all the way through this booklet to make a choice to receive and request a transfer; so let’s pray this prayer together out loud:
I confess with my mouth that I believe you was sent by God to set me free. You took the beatings and died on the cross to save, heal and deliver me. I repent of all my sins and ask you to come into my heart.
I thank you that my sins are removed as far as the east to the west and God has forgotten them because of your blood that was shedded on Calvary.
I ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit and my Holy language so that I can pray with and without my understanding. Teach and guide me Holy Spirit of what I need to know and bring to my remembrance of the things of God so that I can walk in the spirit with faith and love to complete my assignment and destiny.
I will be baptized in Jesus name and ask that you use me for your glory in Jesus’ name I pray. Place me in your designated place of worship so that I may be taught the things of your kingdom, so I can share with others. Amen and Amen.
Rejoice for the angels in heaven are doing it right now. You have made your first steps into your new beginning From God through Jesus Christ. Amen. Amen.
