What does Identification
mean? It means our complete union with Jesus in His substitutionary sacrifice. The teaching of Identification is the "legal" side of redemption. It unveils to us what God did for us in Christ from the time He went to the cross until He sat down at the right hand of the Father. Christ became one with us in sin so that we might become one with Him in righteousness. He became as we were so that we might be as He is now.
In identification, we have one of the richest phases of redemption. There is a twofold oneness: first, His oneness with our sin and humanity on the cross; second, our oneness with Him in His glory on the throne.
These teachings unveil who we are in Christ and how the Father sees us in the Son. The vital aspect of redemption is what the Holy Spirit, through the Word, is doing in us now. When these truths really gain the ascendancy in our lives, they will make us spiritual "supermen." It will be the end of our spiritual weakness and failure. We will no longer struggle for faith, for all things are already ours. We will no longer pray for power, for Christ is in us. We will no longer feel the awful bondage of sin-consciousness, for we are the righteousness of God in Christ.
