Many more scriptures in the Bible substantiate this fact. For instance, Ephesians 2:10(Amplified) says that ‘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….” According to Mark 9:41(Amplified)-” For I tell you truly, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to and bear the name of Christ will by no means fail to get his reward.”
So as a result of this this new identity in Christ, if a Christian experiences poverty, sickness, lack of faith, evil attacks, deficiencies in business or family fertility- their identity in Christ has been stolen.. In fact the Bible requests that Christians should test and prove by ever-increasing experiences that Jesus Christ is in them, unless they are counterfeits.( 2nd Corinthians 13:5).
If a Christian is the victim of evil attacks-their identity in Christ has been stolen because according to the Bible the Lord will fight for his believers- greater is the power of God that is in every Christian than the powers of the world. Deut 28:7 says that the Lord will cause enemies that rise up against Christians to be defeated before their faces-those enemies will come against them one way and flee from before them seven ways. Isaiah 54:14 -17 tells every Christian that they shall be far from even the thought of oppression or destruction, that whoever stirs up strife against them shall fall and surrender to them, and lastly any weapon formed against them shall not prosper.
If a Christian is experiencing lack of faith-their identity in Christ has been stolen because according to the Bible is it impossible for any Christian to please God without faith.
Hosea 14:4(Amplified) God says “ I will heal their faithlessness; I will love them freely,…..” As a result Romans 16:25 (Amplified) says -”Now to him Who is able to strengthen you in the faith which is in accordance with my Gospel and the preaching of (concerning) Jesus Christ (the Messiah)…” There are also angels available to strengthen Christians. In Luke 22:43 an angel from heaven strengthened Jesus in spirit. Even in the Holy Quran (Translation by A. Yusuf Ali)Surah 2:253,Surah 5:113; states that Jesus was strengthened with the holy spirit.
