This is the second blog in the “Who Am I?” series. Click here to read Part One.
Searching for and knowing who we are includes understanding operationally the pecking order for correct priorities in the successful living of our lives presently, in-time and eternally, our forever. Our first and our primary consideration for true and for lasting (continuous) success that is based on a living relationship, must always begin with and continue to follow the perspective that is determined from the vantage point of our eternity and from our eternalness. Eternity and eternalness are not common words that we use. They are different. They are Kingdom words that come from our understanding of the Kingdom System and the language of the Kingdom. Every Kingdom has its own language. Our Kingdom is eternal, and its language is the language of eternity.
This understanding is clearly presented many times in our Constitution, the scriptures, the Great Book of Learning.
“For we are God’s own handiwork, His workmanship, recreated in Christ Jesus, born anew, that we may do those good works which God predestined, planned beforehand, for us, taking paths which He prepared ahead of time that we should walk in them, living the good life, which He prearranged and made ready for us to live.”Ephesians 2: 10 Amplified Classic Edition AMPC
Who are we? Who are you? Who Am I? You and I are who our Creator and our Designer has made us to be. We are the product and the results of His “own” design and of His purposes for each of us before we were born and before we entered time. Other translations say that we are His poem, written for all of humanity to see and to read. We are His work of art, His Masterpiece creation! We are not just someone who happened to be born into a certain Family and our purpose and our destiny are confined to those inherited genes. No! Never! Our design and our lineage are eternal, and we come directly from the spirit and from the mind of the One who created and designed us. The One who called and who anointed us for His specific purposes for us; for ourselves, for our Family and for all of humanity. We are filled with the purposes and the plans of our Creator and our Designer, our Friend and our God.
We have a Divine pedigree and a Divine design for ours and for His purpose.
To correctly understand who we are, we must know who He is; our Creator, our Designer and our God.
This is our heritage. This is who we are and this tells us what we are entitled to.
We enter time with the innate desire to know Him and to be in relationship with Him. We naturally desire to pursue and to fulfill our eternal purpose while we are presently in the in-time component of our eternity. We naturally and we relationally know what He has creatively designed us to be and for us to provide for all of humanity.
To live our life without this awareness and without the active engagement in our transcendent (valued) design and for us to live our lives without pursuing our Creator’s designed purpose for us is not only frustrating, it is also very tragic. Life without a living, flowing, active relationship with the living God, our Creator and our Designer is a rudderless experience. We are adrift. We are designed to be in a close, intimate and personal relationship with our Father and our God. We are programmed for an abiding relationship, spirit to Spirit of fellowship and communication with our Creator and our Designer. Life without this is more correctly described as mere existence.
We are so much more. We are who He says that we are. We have what He says that we have. We can do what He says that we can do. He knows us! We are His creation and His design.

Thank you! I still miss the fellowship and teaching which was the highlight of my season in Tallahassee.
