Hello my beloveds friends and brothers, today I will share a subject that affect the majority part of the world population… Regardless the social position, Male or Female this destructive massive weapon can make you fell the worst Person in this planet..
Further on I will share some personal things of my life that I went through and things that sometimes I’m facing .I’m not afraid to be vulnerable because my security isn’t in my natural feelings but in Whom I’m In Christ… isn’t about exposing all my life, i believe that we need wisdom to share personal things in our life but about be humble enough to know that as Human-Being I still facing some feelings that try to take my eyes from Jesus.
So, in this post I will identify myself with everyone, knowing that im not less and note superior to anyone. In Christ as a believers we are all the same.. Our security isn’t in what we see, or either what we fell but believing by faith in the perfect of Jesus finished Work. In Him we are accepted and loved. We are one with Him. Isn’t nothing about what we can do but about what Jesus did for us..
Mostly of the times rejection isn’t a true symptom. Sure, many time we faced rejection from a friend, a relative a colleague.. I’m not saying that isn’t a real felling. But most of the time the feeling of rejection its reflection of how we see ourselves due our past experience.
We have the first Big example in the bible about a human-being felling rejected due the condemnation due His own Mistakes. A wrong feeling that wasn’t gave by God, the root of that feeling was the wrong perception of Man.
Im talking about Adam. Let’s see very fast whats happen when Adam Fail.
Gen 3:8 And there came to them the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the evening wind: and the man and his wife went to a secret place among the trees of the garden, away from the eyes of the Lord God.
Gen 3:9 And the voice of the Lord God came to the man, saying, Where are you?
Gen 3:10 And he said, Hearing your voice in the garden I was full of fear, because I was without clothing: and I kept myself from your eyes.
Gen 3:11 And he said, Who gave you the knowledge that you were without clothing? Have you taken of the fruit of the tree which I said you were not to take?
Gen 3:12 And the man said, The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me the fruit of the tree and I took it.
Who Told Adam that he was Naked? God, NO, Adam himself had conscious that he was Naked.. The condemnation and guilty because of his mistake gave Him a wrong perception of God and His acceptance. He felt rejected, when God just made him a question. He he assessed the question of God based in His felling of rejection.
How many of us today fell rejection due our experience of the past and when someone correct us or discipline us we fell rejected ? We fell offended , and even we fell rejection. the person its just acting in love because we are too precious for him but because we are living under condemnation and hurt by the past experience we will have the wrong prespective of any approach.
Let’s see what the Word rejection means :
1.to refuse to have, take, recognize, etc.: to reject the offer of a better job.
Gen 3:21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
The First focus of the Lord was provide something to cover their nakedness. And what He provided ? The skin of the lamb? What the lamb speaks ? Speaks about Jesus !!!! God was showing them the provision for the redemption of their SIN (NOUN)…
Did God cast out Adam and His wife from the Garden because He is a Holy God and a Sinful man cannot be in His Presence?
Gen 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever
Gen 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
The bible says in Rom 5:13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin (NOUN) is not imputed when there is no law.
The fall of Adam did not caught God surprised.. Everything was made By God with a purpose, and as you can see the Lord took them for the garden for them to not eat from the tree of Life (a picture of Jesus) until the plan of redemption be accomplished with the death and resurrection of Christ,
And God did not wanted man eat the tree of life and live in his fall condition eternally.God love too much human Kind to allow something like that;
WAS LOVE NOT REJECTION THAT MOVED GOD TO TAKE THEM FROM THE GARDEN OF EDEN!!!!
We see in Adams fall even though he failed God did not rejected Him,God is a God of love. And even in Sodoma and Gomorrah God wasn’t a Sinner hunt but a righteous hunter.. The mind of God was always focus on the Lamb, always in Jesus, Im not minimizing Sin and disrespecting the work of the cross but The church are missing some truths because of wrong concepts of Who God is.
Rejection create a wrong perspective how we see God, how we see us, how we see others. Gives us a wrong understanding of life. People that fells rejected are always looking for acceptance, always perform for,.
Many times we see people being so nice, being so kind, but many of them are acting to get good opinion because they are afraid of being themselves with fear of rejection.. That’s why people get disappointing and get hurt. The most dangerous persons are those who do, speaks in order to get acceptance. They always will put their focus in people response and not in the perfect response that Jesus did on the cross.
Since my young Age I felt the rejection of my parents( I don’t blame them, they did not have anybody to tell them who Jesus was) So, i always tried to perform in order to be accepted..I was afraid to be myself with the fear of rejection. That was killing me inside.
Sometimes we have people that disappointed us, no doubt, but most of the times we get disappointed with people because we put our focus in their response to us rather put our focus in the perfect response of Jesus at the cross.
Many times i did that, and i got disappointed with people. But this was always a reflection of my root of rejection… But the most dangerous thing is people who is suffering of rejection they act unconscious of that root that is so rooted in their heart.
Today, i can see such a huge difference in my life. I do not boast in myself, because i Know that His the work of the Holy Spirit working in me.. But sometimes i still face some challenges that put my focus in my performance, principle with people that i love and i consider so much… Performing to please people its the most dangerous things that can destroy relationships, marriages,
With our kids we reflect in them what we believe that God treat us.
I always teach my kids that they are loved accepted not because they do something good but because i loved them. Even in school i teach them. I will not reward them because they did good but because they are my beloved chidren ” This is the way i take the focus on their performance in order to get and put their focus in their identity”
My kids mus know that what they get for me its based in my love for them, and i can tell you this really works, even if you do not agree no worries, work for me. Im not saying that is wrong to reward the kids but im talking about in what they must focus….
SO, continuing the study the healing to rejection his acceptance. Where we can find this acceptance, a perfect acceptance that makes walk in a unshakable ground ? Jesus i the answer. the bible says that
Eph 1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
Lets see where this word beloved came from, i will show you based in a teaching of pastor Joseph Prince how important his the power of acceptance: The word within the parentheses are added by me
When Jesus was baptized in the river Jordan, a voice from heaven said, “This is My beloved Son (INDENTITY) , in whom I am well pleased(ACCEPTANCE).”(Mat 3:17)
This is recorded in the Bible for your benefit. Today, God has accepted you in the Beloved. Right now, He is well pleased with you because you are in Christ. Today, the way in which Jesus is God’s beloved Son is the same way in which you are God’s beloved child. In fact, Jesus prayed to the Father that His disciples (that covers us also) would know that the way in which His Father loves Him is the same way in which His Father loves them
Immediately after Jesus was baptized, He was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. What did the devil say to Jesus? He said, “If You are the Son of God(MAKING DOUBT OF HIS IDENTITY), command that these stones become bread.” Notice that the devil craftily dropped one vital word when he taunted Jesus to prove that He was the Son of God. God had audibly announced that Jesus was His “beloved Son”, but the devil made no mention of the word “beloved”. He deliberately dropped the word “beloved” when he came to tempt Jesus. He does the same thing with you today because he knows that if he reminds you that you are God’s beloved, all his plans, plots and evil strategies to tempt you will be foiled.
Once you know that you are God’s beloved, whatever the devil wants to bring against you will fail. People give their lives to sin when they feel rejected and unwanted. But when they know that they are God’s beloved, no temptation can succeed against them.
Let’s look at Jesus’ reply to the devil’s first temptation.
“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”When Jesus referred to the “word that proceeds from the mouth of God”,
He was referring to the rhema word or “now word”. What did God just say to Jesus before He entered the wilderness? He had said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
What an amazing Knew… We are accepted in the beloved, its by Knowing Who Jesus is, what he as Done for us and Who we are in Him and how much He loves us that we’ll be able to overcome rejection..
Most people that dont understand Grace,(Jesus) try to get their identity in Something… Many get their acceptance in Money ( that’s we see often people always speaking about money, telling the money its holy for them, they are always exalting themselves before people that they have much money, they can buy this, i have this and that) Why? because is in money that they find their identity.
Only Jesus its the unshakable Ground of acceptance, When we know that we are accepted unconditional by God we always will do, speak something from a position of accepted beloveds children not for achieve that position… the most religious people are those that don’t know how much they are loved by God and that our daddy measure His love for them based in their performance.
So, Jesus is the answer for rejection, in Him we are totally accepted, we are the righteousness of God either you believe or not… We have God’s perfect opinion, acceptance. We don’t need good opinion of man to fell accepted we have it form God.
Even though your earthly father or a relative do not accept you, don’t worry, your heavenly father already made ultimate declaration upon your life. Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the Last.. He has the last word in your life. SO, He tell you this. You are my beloved Son in Whom I am Pleased. My Son become Sin in your behalf that you might become righteous before me…. You are accepted in my Son forever because of His perfect work of the Cross made it once and for all.
