The Identity Wars audio book has broken me like a fragile twig...I weep listening and learning being tuned into the parallel but opposite kingdoms and how since The Fall through recorded Biblical history, these two kingdoms have co-existed. The focus on the intimacy of the life-line between God our Father and ourselves through Jesus His Son is so heart melting,,,,I cannot express the impact in human language. Thanks be to God our Father for revealing to you this focus and emphasis. Since finding the seeking Savior some 40 yrs ago as a teenage student in University this series of messages has fueled a burning desire to know and share the unspeakable riches of Christ like none other I have heard! Knowing the infinite value of Sonship!!! Oh my brother....it is too wonderful....the identity of sonship!!
In the light of my tenth wedding anniversary, I decided to (re)read this book. While the book focusses most on marriage relationships, the principles it presents are relevant to all of our relationships. This book answers the question of why human relationships are so often the source of frustration and pain and what the antidote for this is. In this book you will learn about Agape, which is the real love; the "original" love. Agape is perfectly reflected in the Father and Son relationship, and God's plan was for the beauty of Agape to also be reflected in the marriage relationship. You will learn how Satan marred it all by introducing "Eros", a selfish, false kind of love- making it the default type of "love" in human beings. You will also read how God has gone about to restore Agape in His people. As I read, I sometimes felt uncomfortable, as it's not pleasant to admit that we are by nature selfish, self-seeking and self-centered. But if you're willing to swallow your discomfort and read on, you'll find there's hope of restoration, and a renewed vision for your relationships. You won't view your marriage the same way after reading this and you will have gained a new appreciation of God, who is truly Agape.
