Are you royalty by Blood or by performance? Do you need to achieve Sonship by climbing the ladder of performing or are you a Son by Blood, right and belonging?
Think carefully, for your reward and enduring power of yielding this position, may be temporary due on your viewpoint.
We’ve learnt to view Sonship and being Royal is not based upon performance, but based on The Blood of the Lamb running through our DNA and bloodstream.
An orphan can ‘act’ like a son, yet the only way he will ever be a Son is by having His Father’s Blood run through his veins. The same goes for us being children of God.
“You are a Son/Daughter of the Most High, only because your Father’s Blood runs through your veins.”
Amplified Bible (AMP)
17 And behold, a voice from heaven said, This is My Son, My Beloved, in Whom I am well pleased.
We will live like Kings when we are liberated by the revelation of the Blood that flows through our veins. The Blood that makes us royals and kings.
It’s the goodness of God that leads you to repentance, influences your behaviour to act more like a son through the revelation of His greatness of His grace and love for you!
His goodness first, then repentance, then no more sin!
In that order
Revelation 12:11 Amplified Bible (AMP)
11 And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of their testimony, for they did not love and cling to life even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing].
Romans 2:4 Amplified Bible (AMP)
4 Or are you [so blind as to] trifle with and presume upon and despise and underestimate the wealth of His kindness and forbearance and long-suffering patience? Are you unmindful or actually ignorant [of the fact] that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repent ([a]to change your mind and inner man to accept God’s will)? — with Andrew Meyrick.
