Many years ago, I was working in Kids Church at Word of Life. We were in praise and worship and this thought came to my mind – “What can kill Superman?” You could feel God’s presence, and yes, He will show up in a Kids service, and I thought that the enemy, or my mind was trying to distract me. I brushed the thought away and pushed in harder to go deeper in worship.
The thought came back. I rebuked the devil and entered worship again. I am telling Father’s presence was strong and I didn’t want to miss out on what He may be trying to do. I can be a little stubborn at times.
The time in His sweet presence was awesome. I was enjoying every moment and felt myself getting closer and closer to Him. And then, the thought came back, “What can kill Superman?” I gave in and answered the question. I thought that if I answered the question my mind would be satisfied and let me hear from God. So, I answered the question, “Kryptonite.” “What revives Superman?”
Really! You’ve got to be kidding me. All I want is to worship Father and hear from Him. Father forgive me. I answered this new question, “The sun.” “Where does Kryptonite come from?” A light began to flicker! “It came from his planet Krypton.” Then wham – the light became brighter and I got it.
What Father was teaching me is this – our Kryptonite comes from our world and we are exposed to it daily. To overcome the effects of our Kryptonite we must stay in the Son’s presence.
To today – not only must we stay in His presence we must identify with Him. We must realize who we are in Him and rise-up and be the Supermen we were called to be.
It is time that we start living and walking in our new and true identities. Stop being like Clark Kent, hiding our true nature from the world and be the supermen we were called to be. It is time to stop hiding. Let the world see you as He sees you – the true you, the person you were created to be. Stop hiding under a bushel and let your light shine. Let the world see Jesus the Christ in you.
I was studying from book that I read when I was in the Word of School of Ministry – “New Creation Realities”, the section “Identification With Christ”. I could not get past this one scripture. I am reading from the, The Passion Translation.
Galatians 2:20 “My old identity has been co-crucified with Messiah and no longer lives; for the nails of his cross crucified me with Him. And now the essence of this new life is no longer mine, for the Anointed One lives His life through me – we live in union as one! My new life is empowered by the faith of the Son of God who loves me so much that He gave Himself for me, and dispenses His life into mine!”
Notice the words; “My old identity has been co-crucified with Messiah and no longer lives…” Who you were before you gave your self to Jesus no longer exists. You are now a new and unique creation. This new creation does not know sin, disease, or lack; and never will.
Yes, we sin and fall short because we do not spend time in the Son, and are not obedient to His Word. Now, the flesh and the mind, they must. be dealt with, re-trained to walk and think in line with the Word of God.
Jesus told Lazarus, after He raised him from the dead, to remove his grave clothes. Jesus did not do it, He instructed Lazarus to do it. We, like wise must do the same. We must renew the mind and crucify the flesh. Spend time with Son and in His Word. Then we can become the supermen we were called to be.
Rise up Mighty Ones of God!
