"That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." - John 3:6 (KJV)
Bible Reading: John 4:24, John 1:12-13, 1Peter 1:23, 1John 4:4, 1John 5:4, Colossians 2:11-15
A lot of believers struggle because they don't know who they are in Christ. Ignorance is a deadly weapon that can erode someone's destiny. Lack of the knowledge of God makes us act ignorantly. The knowledge from God's word is what guarantees victory. You have to know what your identity in Christ is.
Our true nature before salvation is the flesh. The moment you accepted Jesus as your saviour, we became spirit-being. Your salvation doesn't reduce who you are, it makes you dominant. You are birth out of God's will. As believers, we don't die we transition from earthly to eternity. Understanding makes one to be outstanding amongst others. It is what you know and understand that sets you apart from the crowd. Our essence of existence is not because of flesh. God transferred his gene into us so what cannot trouble God should not be able to trouble us. You need to walk and understand your new identity in Christ. What makes us as children of God to be dreaded by the devil is the God in us. The God in you is far exceeding than all the demons and devils in the world. Be conscious of your new identity in Christ!
What it means to be ignorant - to be ignorant is lack of knowledge. Without knowledge you cannot go far in life. In the absence of knowledge, there can't be understanding. You need to know what you carry on the inside. You have so much power in you. When you know who you are and who dwells in you, you start living victoriously. Two masters cannot stay under the same rules only the strong one can rule and that is the Holy Spirit.
Reason why believers are ignorant of who they are? Because they are unaware of their new creation reality. There is no way you can get knowledge if you don't read the book of God. If you refuse to read it, you have planned to fail, but when you read, you become outstanding.
Ignorance is a poison that can stripe you naked!
