What Is Written Of You?
“Now this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?”” John 1:19 (NKJV)
The question that was asked to John in our opening scripture is a question you need to answer as well, “Who are you?” Do you know who you are?
This was the answer of John concerning his identity, “He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Christ.” John 1:20 (NKJV). This means that confession is not denial rather it is an affirmation ofthe truth.
The Jews went on to ask John, “And they asked him,”What then? Are you Elijah?” He said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” And he answered, “No.” Then they said to him, “Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?” John 1:21-22 (NKJV). Notice that what you say about yourself is always based on your identity andyour self-perception.
John revealed his identity saying, “… “I am ‘The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Make straight the way of the Lord,”‘ as the prophet Isaiah said.”” John 1:23 (NKJV) Notice that John drew his identity from the scriptures.
Therefore if you want to know your true identity then you must go to the scriptures. In the following days, we are going to show you from the scriptures who you are.
In the Name of Jesus, I declare according to 1 John 4:4 that “Greater is He that is in me than He that is in the world.”
