A Secular Nation?
Satan will use deceit to hide your true identity in Christ.
A television commentator recently declared with pride, “we are a secular nation.” He said it like this is what we are supposed to be, like this is our purpose and destiny in life. This is like Adam and Eve being proud that they got kicked out of the Garden of Eden, like they were proud of the impact of sin on all future generations.
Can you as a believer say with more confidence than the news commentator: “I am part of a Holy Nation, not a secular nation. My home country has been from the beginning and has no end. My King has reigned forever. My King is the Alpha and the Omega. I have been called out of darkness into light by the blood of Jesus Christ my King.”
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9
As a believer and follower of the Lord Jesus Christ you are part of a Holy Nation. You are part of the Royal Priesthood. You were chosen and belong to God. You are part of the Kingdom of God, His Holy Nation. Your citizenship is in heaven and you are an Ambassador representing your homeland, the Kingdom of God, here on earth. You have dual citizenship here on earth and in heaven. Your circumcised, redeemed, and repentant heart is the official seal of your citizenship. Your desire and purpose is to serve your King here on earth as it is in heaven. Your desire is to bring the Kingdom of God here to earth through the official seal of the Holy Spirit residing in you.
The enemy of God uses tactics to plant seeds of deception and doubt. The enemy wants to convince you that your identity is based upon man’s self-effort through government to fix the sin problems here on earth. However, your true identity is with God in HIS Kingdom. The enemy uses deception as a tool to defeat, discourage and get you to lose hope in your true identity in Christ.
When you hear these kinds of statements, say to yourself, “No I am a citizen of the Kingdom of God which is a Holy Nation!” I am proud to be part of the Holy Nation, the Kingdom of God, here on earth as it is in heaven. Speak truth back to deception.
