Declaration Scriptures (Identity in Jesus)
Note: We have chosen to present the daily declarations of identity in Jesus in a new format, giving an identity verse and explaining it. We will sometimes include concepts that are gleaned from other passages, since the Bible was written “a little here, a little there” (Isa. 28:10), making it necessary to take it as a whole. We plan to give you one verse or a combination of verses per day until we exhaust the identity Scriptures, and some verses may be repeated with slightly different explanations. We will post the entirety of the list here…
Romans 8:1-2 Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.
By the blood of Jesus I am free! I am free from the slavery of sin, from condemnation, guilt, and shame. I am free from the ways and effects of death. I have life in Jesus!
Galatians 1:10 For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ.
I have ceased being a people pleaser. I am a God-pleaser.
Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in [some translations say, the faith of the Son of God] the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
Wow! Jesus loved me enough to die for me so that He could live in me and do His works of faith in and through me. I can do nothing without Him. I have stopped trying to do things in my strength. Jesus is my strength.
Ephesians 2:4-5 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in transgression, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
My Father Love loves me so much that He gave Jesus so He could have me as His son/daughter. I was born dead in sin because of what Adam did, but when I accepted Jesus, He gave me the seed of life, which begins to germinate when I bury my old self in baptism by immersion. What’s more, my spirit is now alive in Jesus. So the real me was raised with Jesus when He was resurrected, and I sit beside Him in heaven, looking down on Satan, the demons, and all my circumstances. In my dominion covenant with my Father in heaven, we rule from our heavenly position, changing facts by speaking out the truth of God’s Word.
II Corinthians 5:21 He made Him [Jesus] who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
I am no longer a sinner, so I have ceased saying that lie that so many Christians speak because of deception. Jesus took my sin on Him on the cross. He has taken my sin and given me His righteousness. Wow! What a deal! That’s divine exchange. God My Father looks at me like I am Jesus. That’s how righteous I am. I am as righteous as Jesus! It’s not mine; it’s His! I reject any curses from people who try to remind me of sins of the past that God has forgotten, and I remind myself that Jesus has given me the gift of His righteousness.
Zechariah 2:8 For thus says the [Eternal] of hosts, “After glory He has sent me against the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you, touches the apple of his eye.”
In the conceptual Hebrew, when God says we are the apple of His eye (also in Psalm 17:8), He is saying, like a proud father, “That’s my boy! That’s my son! That’s my daughter! I’m so proud he or she is My son/daughter.” As our Father told Jesus before He did any mighty work, “You are My Son, in whom I am well pleased!”
Deuteronomy 7:6 For you are a holy people to the [Eternal] your God; the [Eternal] your God has chosen you to be a people for His own possession [“a special treasure,” NKJV] out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.
While God has plan to call all people to Himself in a resurrection after the Millennium (Rev. 20:5), He has chosen me now to be His unique, special treasure. There is no one like me in all the world, in all history. I am special, one of a kind. God has given me a special, unique calling or anointing, a task that I can do by His strength in a way no one else can do it. I am a special gift to the diversity of the Family of God, a part of the Bride of Jesus.
Zephaniah 3:17 The [Eternal] your God is in your midst, A victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.
My Father and my Brother Jesus “rejoice” over me [Hebrew giyl]. They spin around in a dance of joy over me with shouting and singing. They are excited about me just because I’m me, and they rejoice in my progress and the glorious future I have.
John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe on His name.
Romans 8:14 For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
I am a precious child of God, growing up to be a mature son/daughter of the Most High God.
John 3:5 …unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
Romans 8:29 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren;
I have been born into the Kingdom/Family of God, a younger brother/sister of Jesus.
John 10:34 Jesus answered them, “Has it not been written in your Law [Ps. 82:6], ‘I SAID, YOU ARE GODS’? Genesis 1:26 “[We shall] make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…”
I am far above the angel kind. I am of the God kind, made in the very image of My Father in heaven, on the God plane, still under the authority of the Triune Godhead, yet in the Family of God [Love].
John 20:23 “If you forgive the sins of any, their sins have been forgiven them…”
Since only God can forgive sins, and Jesus gave me that authority as His disciple, I use my God-plane authority to forgive the sins of others, often declaring forgiveness over them, in Jesus’ name.
John 17:22 “The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one.”
As a disciple of My Savior and Brother Jesus, I have received the glory of God, His goodness, righteousness, excellence, and love. I am the tabernacle that houses His glory.
Colossians 2:13 When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our trangressions…
I John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
My Father has forgiven me of all my sins by the blood of Jesus. My spirit man is alive and perfect in Jesus. Since God forgives me, I choose to forgive myself.
Luke 10:20 “Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven.” Phil. 4:3 Indeed, true companion, I ask you also to help these women who have shared my struggle in the cause of the gospel, together with Clement also and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life.
While I use the authority Jesus gave me over Satan and his demons, my principal joy is based in the knowledge that God has chosen me in this age to be His son/daughter, and my name is written in heaven in the Book of Life.
James 4:7 Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
I am an enemy of the devil. I resist Satan, and he and his demons flee in fear from me. I am Satan’s worst nightmare.
Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn; This is the heritage of the servants of the [Eternal], And their vindication is from Me,” declares [Jesus].
Because I use my authority in Jesus, none of Satan’s weapons against me shall succeed. Jesus is My Defender.
Psalm 91:10-11 No evil will befall you, Nor will any plague come near your tent. For He will give His angels charge concerning you, To guard you in all your ways.
I claim daily for myself and my family that we abide in the shadow of the Almighty, so no evil, no accident will befall us, because angels guard us in all our ways.
John 14:12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.”
I choose to believe Jesus’ prophecy about me as a believer. By His grace and in His name I can do all that He did and more. I can heal the sick, raise the dead, rebuke the wind and storms, move mountains, walk on water, and translate myself by God’s power from place to place when necessary. I choose to take the limits off of what God can do through me. Jesus said it, so I believe it.
John 14:12 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to the Father.
In Jesus’ name I can do all things Jesus did, and even more than He did, because of the Holy Spirit He sent to be my Helper. That means I can heal the sick, cast out demons, walk on water, rebuke storms, translate myself miraculously from place to place, and raise the dead on a larger scale than even Jesus when He was on earth. It’s still Jesus doing it, because He lives in me (Gal. 2:20).
Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of [Jesus], And their vindication is from Me,” declares [Jesus]. Luke 10:19 Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you.
Jesus lives in Me and is my Defender. He has given me His authority over demons and all their weapons. None of the plans of Satan and his demons will cause me to be injured in any way as I walk with Jesus.
Ps. 91:1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty… 10 No evil will befall you, Nor any plague come near your tent. 11 For He will give His angels charge concerning you, To guard you in all your ways. 12 They will bear you up in their hands, That you do not strike your foot against a stone.
I claim angelic protection for me and my family daily. As I walk with Jesus, my family and I are free from accidents of any kind, including car accidents.
II Tim. 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.
I John 4:17-18 …as He is, so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear…
Jesus in me gives Me His way of thinking, a sound, disciplined mind that is filled with God’s love that casts out all fear. I speak His words of love, not words of fear.
Prov. 28:1 The wicked flee when no one is pursuing, But the righteous are bold as a lion.
Rev. 5:5 “Stop weeping; behold, the Lion that is from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome…”
Since Jesus, the Lion of Judah, lives in me, I am bold as a lion.
Rom. 8:17 And if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ…
Isa. 61:1-3 The Spirit of the [Eternal] God is upon me, Because the [Eternal] has anointed me To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives, And freedom to prisoners; …to comfort all who mourn, To grant those who mourn in Zion, Giving them a garland instead of ashes, The oil of gladness instead of mourning, The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting…
Since I am a joint-heir with Jesus, I share His anointing to bring freedom to those in bondage to Satan and his ways.
Rom. 8:28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
Gen. 50:20 “As for you, you meant evil against me, But God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive.”
Since Jesus is my Redeemer (Yashua Gaal), even the bad circumstances with which Satan attacks me work out for the ultimate good in my life.
Jer. 29:11 ‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the [Eternal], ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.’
Satan, not God, has plans to harm us, but God’s plans for us are always good. We have a sure hope for the future.
Rev. 12:11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony…
No demon can withstand the force of the blood of Jesus nor have any authority or power to form a weapon against His blood. We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. We abide in Jesus, our High Tower of Defense. Jesus is our Rearguard. I walk with and in Jesus, and no weapon of Satan can separate Jesus and me. Nothing can break through the blood of Jesus. All weapons sent will rebound back to their source.
Rom. 8:37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer [KJV – “more than conquerors”] through Him who loved us.
I am an overcomer, a winner, a victor, more than a conqueror over sin, bad habits, challenging circumstances, by the power of Jesus in me.
I Pet. 1:7 so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Ps. 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me…
I do not fear trials of my faith, since Jesus is with me every step of the way, working in me His character of faith and love. He will “turn [my] mourning into joy” (Jer. 31:13).
III John 2 Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.
I have peace and prosperity in my mind, will, and emotions, which translates into prosperity in my body in the form of vibrant health and prosperity in my finances.
Ex. 15:26 …I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, [Jesus], am your healer [Yahovah or Yashua Rapha]. Ps. 103:3 Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases.
As I come in agreement with His ways of love, Jesus forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.
II Cor. 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed…10 Now He … will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness; 11 you will be enriched in everything for all liberality. Ps. 112:3 Wealth and riches are in [my] house…
God gives me financial blessings so my overflow can be a blessing to others.
Phil. 4:19 And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Yahovah Yireh my Provider (Gen. 22:14) meets all my needs, even my financial needs.
Rom. 8:17 …heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ… 29…so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren

Jesus has given me access to all that He is, all His glory, the most all-inclusive word in the Bible.

I am a king and a priest under the authority of Jesus in the Kingdom of God – now and in the Millennium.
Heb. 2:8 “You have put all things in subjection under his feet.” For in subjecting all things to him, He left nothing that is not subject to him. But now we see not all things subjected to him.
I am preparing to rule with Jesus over all things, the whole universe.
Rom. 5:5 …the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
God’s love in me enables me to love others – including my enemies, seeing them for who they will be in Jesus.

I have a positive mindset, looking for the good in people and circumstances and meditating on what is good.

I am God’s workmanship.

God isn’t finished with me yet!

I am an ambassador of the Kingdom of God on earth.

Mat. 5:13-14 You are the salt of the earth… You are the light of the world…
I am salt of the Earth it gives flavor to it and preserves it so God will not have to destroy it because of its evil. Jesus is my Light and Salvation. I allow His light to shine in and through me so people can experience His love through me and have hope.
Eph. 2:6 [God] raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
When I was baptized, my old self died and was buried with Jesus. The new me, my enlivened spirit man, ascended with Jesus. I am sitting with him in heaven, looking down on and dominating Satan, his demons and the earthly passions of the flesh.
II Cor. 11:2 …for I betrothed you to one husband, so that to Christ I might present you as a pure virgin.
I am part of the Bride of Jesus. He is making me into His spotless bride.

I have zeal and passion for my Bridegroom Jesus. I seek intimacy with Him.

Because of His blood shed for me, Jesus sees me, His bride, as spotless and without fault.

I am one with the great "I Am." So I am eternal like Him.
Eph. 1:4 just As He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him…
I am not an accident. My Father foreknew my birth in this world and chose me to be His child even before he created the universe. That's how special I am to Him.
II Cor. 4:16 … our inner man is being renewed day by day.
Since I confess sins on a daily basis and am washed clean by Jesus’ blood, every day it's a brand-new day. I have no past.
Phil. 3:13-14 … forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Since every day is a brand-new day for me, I don't look back on sins there have been erased by the blood of Jesus. I look forward to each new day and to the wonderful future God has for me.
Gal. 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
The person I was before I knew Jesus no longer exists. Jesus has made my spirit alive and perfect. That's who I am, a perfect spirit bringing my soul and body into alignment with my spirit. I love myself and others because Jesus lives in me. I live by His grace and His faith that He has placed in me.
Ps. 103:5 Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
