My Identity In God’s Accounting Books

MY IDENTITY IN GOD’S ACCOUNTING BOOKS
Am I who other people say I am?
Am I who I feel that I am?
Am I who God says that I Am?

Identity in God’s heavenly accounting system is by birth, not by human works or performance. Reading, studying, meditating on “identity” scriptures is powerful for guiding our relationships and our evaluations of circumstances. There are four categories of “identity” scriptures:
A. who God says He is
B. who God says I am
C. who God says other people are
D. How God evaluates circumstances
Learning to think the same as God thinks in these four categories is what Romans 12:2 means about “renewing the mind.” It says such a “renewing” results in “transformation of life.” Thoughts have influence on emotions. Emotions have influence on decisions/behaviors. In psychology this modus-operandi is called “rational- emotive therapy” or “cognitive-emotive therapy.
In 1974, I completed a correspondence course with Moody Bible Institute, based on Dr. C.I. Scofield’s study and preaching notes. The course title was, “Twenty-six Great Words.” That study has turned out to be in the top ten smartest things I have ever done. The “mind renewing” it gave me has resulted in some very beneficial “transformation of life”. The following list of identity verses and definitions is based on that course. There are a good many more than I have included here.
Here’s how I use it in 2017. I read a verse as per the New American Standard Bible ’77 [very important]. Then I read the verse again and put my name into it at the appropriate place(s). This gives me a personal experience with the meaning of the identity words in the verse. This influences me to agree with the identity-thinking of God.

1.Romans 5:9-10 (NASB77)
9  Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.
10  For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

Justification:
The Greek New Testament word is “dikaios,” and means to be accounted righteous.

Reconciliation:
The Greek New Testament word is “katallasso’ and means to change thoroughly.

2. Romans 5:19 (NASB77)
19  For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous.

Righteous:
The Greek New Testament word is ”dikaios,” meaning just in many NT verses, but rendered righteous in many other verses.

3. Romans 5:12 (NASB77)
12  Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned—

Sin:
The Greek New Testament word is “hamartia,” meaning sin, error, sin offering.

4. Galatians 2:20 (NASB77)
20  “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and delivered Himself up for me.

Faith:
The Greek New Testament word is “pistis,” meaning believing, (from the verb “peitho,” to persuade, or to convince).

5. Romans 6:6 (NASB77)
 knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, that our body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin;

Our Old Self:
The Greek New Testament words are “palaios anthropos hemos,” meaning old self of us. Scofield notes that this is the corrupt human nature, the inborn tendency to evil in all men, received by inheritance from Adam through countless generations of sinning ancestors.

6. Romans 6:7 (NASB77)
 for he who has died is freed from sin.
Died:
The Greek New Testament words “ho gar apothanon,” are rendered here the(one) indeed having died. The word for death is used in scripture (King James Bible) seven ways. Dr. Scofield notes that the use in this verse is of a believer to denote the fact that God accounts him crucified with (or in) Christ. Because of this he is reckoned (and is to reckon himself) as “dead to sin.

7. Romans 6:8 (NAS77)
Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,
Scofield Note: The old relation to the law and sin, and the new relation to Christ and life are illustrated by the effect of death upon servitude Rom 6:16-23. The old servitude was nominally to the law, but, since the law had no delivering power, the real master continued to be sin in the nature. The end was death. The law could not give life, and “sin” (here personified as the old self) is in itself deathful.
But death in another form, ie., crucifixion with Christ, has intervened Rom 6:6 to free the servant from his double bondage to sin (vs 6,7), and to the law Rom 7:4, 6.

8. Romans 6:11(NAS77)
 Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
My Note: “Consider yourselves” means to account yourself as legally dead, disconnected, separated, divorced from the Adam, sin domain, and to account yourself as legally alive, connected to, adopted into the Jesus, righteousness kingdom.

9. Romans 6:14(NAS77)
 For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law, but under grace.

Grace:
The Greek New Testament word “charis” means the free favor of God in salvation. God’s grace to man is always based on the work accomplished by Christ in His death on the cross.

When trying to help someone understand that God relates to people based on birth, not behavior, I use the following home-made, DIY, daily circumstance; that of using a vacuum cleaner.
When I plug my vacuum into an electric outlet at the office, it will immediately start and run by the power system of the Austin Energy Power Utility. I can accurately say that my vacuum has its being, lives its life because of the Austin electricity feeding it. But on some occasions I might take my vacuum up to my vacation cabin (if I had one) on the Medina River (a delightful place) to clean the cabin’s carpet. There I would plug it into an electric outlet connected to the Perdenales Electric Cooperative. Now my vacuum would run, live because of the connection to PEC. It would be “dead” (disconnected) to The Austin Energy name and power, but it would be alive to (connected to) the name and power of PEC.
Roughly speaking, God and Satan are both power sources in the Universe, including our Planet, Earth. In Col. 1:12 Paul writes of “the domain of darkness” and “the kingdom of His beloved Son.” Every soul starts life, is birthed into, the “domain of darkness.” Some souls have chosen to request and receive a transfer, a new birth, into the “kingdom of His beloved Son.” One of the great new things of this transfer is a new identity, an “in Jesus” identity. The power of that flows to us when we remember our newness, to think it, be glad for it, be thankful for it.
