Believe who you are

John 5.14 Then a little later Jesus found him in the synagogue and said, “1See! You have become whole! Do not continue in your old 2distorted mindset; then nothing worse can happen to you!” (It is so important to 1see your wholeness and not your distortedness! You reflect what you behold. To see yourself through God’s eyes is the only way to escape the distortion of contradiction!

The word 1 ide from horao means to see, to discern, to perceive. The word translated sin, is the word 1 hamartia, from ha, negative and meros, portion or form, thus to be without your allotted portion or without form, pointing to a disorientated, distorted identity; the word meros, is the stem of morphe, as in 2 Corinthians 3:18 the word metamorphe, with form, is the opposite of hamartia – without form. Sin is to live out of context with the blueprint of one’s design; to behave out of tune with God’s original harmony. Hamartia suggests anything that could possibly distract from the awareness of our likeness. See Deuteronomy 32:18, “You have forgotten the Rock that begot you and have gotten out of step with the God who danced with you!” Hebrew, khul or kheel, to dance. Many commentators have used this verse to conclude that God punishes people’s sin with sickness! This is not the Father whom Jesus reveals! A few verses later [v 22) Jesus emphatically declares that The Father judges no-one! The religious mind has for so long connected God’s judgment with disease and sickness! Jesus introduces us to the God who would rather become our distortions and diseases on the cross and go into our darkness and hell to deliver us from its claim, than to send sickness to us and send us to hell! In John 9:2 the followers of Jesus asks “Rabbi, who sinned: this man or his parents, causing him to be born blind?” And Jesus answered, “You’re asking the wrong question. You’re looking for someone to blame.” [Message] Neither this man nor his parents were guilty! Then Knox translates the next sentence to read, “it was so that God’s action might declare itself in him!” This has nothing to do with judgment! See also 9:34 for the typical opinion of the Pharisees! “You were born in utter sin – now you try to teach us!” Nothing makes a Pharisee more nervous and mad than when their sin- and judgment-paradigm gets taken out of the equation!) The Mirror version.

Translated I believe this basically means stop believing the lies and believe who God says you are.

Psalm 46.10 “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah
