More than any other country, America is a symbol of Freedom to the entire world.  Though she has never completely lived up to the dream, she nevertheless  represents the dream of Freedom that most people around the world idolize and  revere. Because of this millions of people have sought entry into this country,  some legally and some illegally. But they all come with the desire for freedom  and a better life for their families. As of 2015, the official count was 47 million  immigrants that have relocated to the United States, which represents roughly  20% of the overall population. Many of those who are here legally seek to be  naturalized citizens of this nation. 

naturalize: 

(1) to confer upon (an alien) the rights and privileges of a citizen; (2) the  process by which a foreign citizen becomes a citizen of a new country. 

When a person who was born in a different country comes to America and  applies for citizenship they go through the Naturalization process. This process  requires several things of the immigrant and can take years to complete. Among  other things, this process includes: 

  • Residency for several years 
  • The ability to communicate in English 
  • Demonstrated knowledge of American history and government Citizenship Interview 
  • Demonstrated Moral Character 
  • Dedication to American values that includes no membership in subversive  organizations 
  • Citizenship Ceremony with Oath of Allegiance 

The final stage of the Naturalization process is the Oath of Allegiance where the  new citizen formally by oath, renounces allegiance to their birth country and  pledges allegiance to their new country. In America the pledge reads like this…

 

The American Oath of Allegiance: 

“I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure  all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or  sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of  America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and  allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States  when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed  Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of  national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I  take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion;  so help me God.” 

Every believer begins as an alien to the Kingdom of Heaven but through  Heaven’s process of naturalization (the new birth process – 2 Corinthians 5.17)  they undergo a complete spiritual and political renovation of heart where their  allegiance is switched from the World to the Kingdom of Heaven. This is both  spiritual and political in that spiritually you were regenerated and re-born by the  Word (sperma) of God, but politically you were transferred from the Kingdom of  Darkness into the Kingdom of God dear Son (Colossians 1.13). 

Unfortunately most churches are not as thorough as the United States  government in their naturalization process. Think about it, when was the last time  you saw a person accept Jesus and during the same process renounce their  former ties and allegiance to the Kingdom of Darkness? This is a fundamental  flaw in Western Christianity. When a person gives their heart to God they need to  be instructed exactly what it means. They also need to pledge their allegiance to  their new King, Jesus, and renounce the Kingdom of Darkness and all previous  entanglements in sin. This of course does not mean that they will be perfect, but  it does change the expectations considerably. 

Early believers understood this commitment very well. For example, Jewish  converts were many times at risk of losing their family relationships when they  pledged allegiance to the Kingdom of Heaven. These people were completely sold out to Heaven and every part of their lives centered around God, His Word  and their brothers and sisters in Christ. Yes they worked and did other things, but  those other things were not the central focus. The early saints made incredible  sacrifices for the Kingdom. Many of them gave their very lives for the cause of  Christ. Their allegiance to the Kingdom was unquestionable and they counted it  an honor to be a martyr for Heaven. 

Hebrews 11:24-40 TPT (24) Faith enabled Moses to choose God’s will, for  although he was raised as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, he refused to make  that his identity, (25) choosing instead to suffer mistreatment with the  people of God. Moses preferred faith’s certainty above the momentary  enjoyment of sin’s pleasures. (26) He found his true wealth in suffering abuse  for being anointed, more than in anything the world could offer him, for his eyes  looked with wonder not on the immediate, but on the ultimate—faith’s great  reward! (27) Holding faith’s promise Moses abandoned Egypt and had no fear  of Pharaoh’s rage because he persisted in faith as if he had seen God who is  unseen. (28) Faith stirred Moses to perform the rite of Passover and sprinkle  lamb’s blood, to prevent the destroyer from harming their firstborn. (29) Faith  opened the way for the Hebrews to cross the Red Sea as if on dry land, but when  the Egyptians tried to cross they were swallowed up and drowned! (30) Faith  pulled down Jericho’s walls after the people marched around them for seven  days! (31) Faith provided a way of escape for Rahab the prostitute, avoiding the  destruction of the unbelievers, because she received the Hebrew spies in peace.  (32) And what more could I say to convince you? For there is not enough time  to tell you of the faith of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel, and  the prophets. (33) Through faith’s power they conquered kingdoms and  established true justice. Their faith fastened onto their promises and pulled  them into reality! It was faith that shut the mouth of lions, (34) put out the  power of raging fire, and caused many to escape certain death by the sword. In  their weakness their faith imparted power to make them strong! Faith sparked  courage within them and they became mighty warriors in battle, pulling armies  from another realm into battle array. (35) Faith-filled women saw their dead  children raised in resurrection power. Yet it was faith that enabled others to  endure great atrocities. They were stretched out on the wheel and tortured, and  didn’t deny their faith in order to be freed, because they longed for a more  honorable and glorious resurrection! (36) Others were mocked and experienced  the most severe beating with whips; they were in chains and imprisoned. (37) Some of these faith champions were brutally killed by stoning, being sawn in  two or slaughtered by the sword. These lived in faith as they went about wearing  goatskins and sheepskins for clothing. They lost everything they possessed, they  endured great afflictions, and they were cruelly mistreated. (38) They wandered  the earth living in the desert wilderness, in caves, on barren mountains and in  holes in the earth. Truly, the world was not even worthy of them, not  realizing who they were. (39) These were the true heroes, commended for  their faith, yet they lived in hope without receiving the fullness of what was  promised them. (40) But now God has invited us to live in something better  than what they had—faith’s fullness! This is so that they could be brought to  finished perfection alongside of us. 

Now compare this with our version of Comfort Centered American Christianity  today? Obviously our faith must increase so that our allegiance to the Kingdom  will one day match or surpass theirs.

 

RENOUNCING THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS 

I know you are born again, but have you ever renounced the Kingdom of  Darkness and all of its trappings? Have you ever renounced wickedness on  television or do you tolerate wickedness in your eye and ear gates in the name of  entertainment? Have you ever renounced wickedness in secular music or do you  say, “It’s only music”? Have you ever renounced wickedness in comedy, or do  you just tolerate it for the sake of humor? Have you ever renounced wickedness  in social media or any other medium where sin is propagated, or do you tolerate  it for the sake of being relevant? May we pray for a work of grace during this  consecration that would uproot all allegiances that oppose God. 

James 4:4-8 ESV 

You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity  with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself  an enemy of God. (5) Or do you suppose it is to no purpose that the Scripture  says, “He yearns jealously over the spirit that he has made to dwell in us”? (6)  But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives  grace to the humble.” (7) Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil,  and he will flee from you. (8) Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.  Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 

2 Corinthians 4:2-4 AMP 

(2) We have renounced disgraceful ways (secret thoughts, feelings, desires and  underhandedness, the methods and arts that men hide through shame); we  refuse to deal craftily (to practice trickery and cunning) or to adulterate or handle  dishonestly the Word of God, but we state the truth openly (clearly and candidly).  And so we commend ourselves in the sight and presence of God to every man’s  conscience. (3) But even if our Gospel (the glad tidings) also be hidden  (obscured and covered up with a veil that hinders the knowledge of God), it is  hidden [only] to those who are perishing and obscured [only] to those who are  spiritually dying and veiled [only] to those who are lost. (4) For the god of this  world has blinded the unbelievers’ minds [that they should not discern the truth],  preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the Gospel of the glory of  Christ (the Messiah), Who is the Image and Likeness of God.

 

Ephesians 5:1-13 ESV 

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. (2) And walk in love, as  Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to  God. (3) But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be  named among you, as is proper among saints. (4) Let there be no filthiness nor  foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be  thanksgiving. (5) For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually  immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in  the kingdom of Christ and God. (6) Let no one deceive you with empty words, for  because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.  (7) Therefore do not become partners with them; (8) for at one time you were  darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (9) (for the  fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), (10) and try to discern  what is pleasing to the Lord. (11) Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness,  but instead expose them. (12) For it is shameful even to speak of the things that  they do in secret. (13) But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes  visible, 

PRAYER OF RELEASE  

FROM THE WORKS OF DARKNESS 

2 Timothy 2:19 WNT 

Yet God’s solid foundation stands unmoved, bearing this inscription, “THE LORD  KNOWS THOSE WHO REALLY BELONG TO HIM.” And this also, “LET EVERY  ONE WHO NAMES THE NAME OF THE LORD RENOUNCE ALL  WICKEDNESS.” 

It is so important after you become a new creature in Christ to renounce your  past involvement with any works of darkness and to take it farther even  renouncing works of darkness by your ancestors. Confession of our sins  cleanses us from unrighteousness but confession from the sins of our ancestors releases us from their sins. Pray this prayer of renunciation and release for  victory over the works of darkness from your life and your generation. 

  1. I renounce all lust, perversion, immorality, uncleanness, impurity, and  sexual sin in the name of Jesus. 
  2. I renounce all witchcraft, sorcery, divination, and occult involvement in the  name of Jesus. 
  3. I renounce all ungodly soul ties and immoral relationships in the name of  Jesus. 
  4. I renounce all hatred, anger, aggression, resentment, revenge, retaliation,  unforgiveness, and bitterness in the name of Jesus. 
  5. I forgive any person who has ever hurt me, disappointed me, abandoned  me, mistreated me, or rejected me in the name of Jesus. 
  6. I renounce all addiction to drugs, alcohol, or any legal or illegal substance  that has bound me in the name of Jesus. 
  7. I renounce all pride, haughtiness, arrogance, vanity, ego, disobedience,  and rebellion in the name of Jesus. 
  8. I renounce all envy, jealousy, and covetousness in the name of Jesus. 
  9. I renounce all selfishness, self-will, self-pity, self-rejection, self-hatred, and  self-promotion in the name of Jesus. 
  10. I renounce all ungodly thought patterns and belief systems in the name of  Jesus. 
  11. I renounce all ungodly covenants, oaths, and vows made by myself or my  ancestors in the name of Jesus. 

After you have prayed this prayer of renunciation begin to give God praise for  your release, your cleansing and your victory! It is only through our participation  for our deliverance and through the name of Jesus we can be free.  [https://truthinreality.com/2012/09/08/prayer-for-renunciation-of-works-of darkness/]

 

WHO DO YOU IDENTIFY WITH? 

It is a shame to say that many Christians identify more with the World than they  do Heaven. They have given in to the carnal, sinful nature and as a result spend  all their time on carnal pursuits. Therefore their outlook is completely natural and  

they think, talk and operate as mere earthlings. Somehow in their carnal debased  state they identify with those who murder babies and practice sexual deviance.  Many of whom identify first with their earthly ethnicity instead of their Heavenly  heritage. But if you identify with the World and with those that God considers to  be wicked, what team are you really on? What a travesty it is when people who  call themselves Christians identify with and fight for the other team. What a  disgrace it is when people who have confessed the name of Jesus also align  themselves with God’s enemies, those who champion murdering babies up to the  point of birth; or those who practice all manner of sexual perversion and seek to  normalize it. These people are morally bankrupt and utterly debased, yet so  many in the “Church” identify with them for the sake of political expediency. God  have mercy on the souls of every spiritual leader and born again believer who  identifies with wickedness and aligns themselves against the God of the  Universe. 

Galatians 2:19-20 TPT 

“But because the Messiah lives in me, I’ve now died to the law’s dominion over  me so that I can live for God. (20) “My old identity has been co-crucified with  Messiah and no longer lives; for the nails of his cross crucified me with him. And  now the essence of this new life is no longer mine, for the Anointed One lives his  life through me—we live in union as one! My new life is empowered by the faith  of the Son of God who loves me so much that he gave himself for me, and  dispenses his life into mine! 

Colossians 2:6-12 TPT 

In the same way you received Jesus our Lord and Messiah by faith, continue  your journey of faith, progressing further into your union with him! (7) Your  spiritual roots go deeply into his life as you are continually infused with strength,  encouraged in every way. For you are established in the faith you have absorbed  and enriched by your devotion to him! (8) Beware that no one distracts you or intimidates you in their attempt to lead you away from Christ’s fullness by  pretending to be full of wisdom when they’re filled with endless arguments of  human logic. For they operate with humanistic and clouded judgments based on  the mindset of this world system, and not the anointed truths of the Anointed  One. (9) For he is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. (10) And  our own completeness is now found in him. We are completely filled with God as  Christ’s fullness overflows within us. He is the Head of every kingdom and  authority in the universe! (11) Through our union with him we have experienced  circumcision of heart. All of the guilt and power of sin has been cut away and is  now extinct because of what Christ, the Anointed One, has accomplished for us.  (12) For we’ve been buried with him into his death. Our “baptism into death”  also means we were raised with him when we believed in God’s resurrection  power, the power that raised him from death’s realm. 

Ephesians 2:1-6 TPT  

And his fullness fills you, even though you were once like corpses, dead in your  sins and offenses. (2) It wasn’t that long ago that you lived in the religion,  customs, and values of this world, obeying the dark ruler of the earthly realm who  fills the atmosphere with his authority, and works diligently in the hearts of those  who are disobedient to the truth of God. (3) The corruption that was in us from  birth was expressed through the deeds and desires of our self – life. We lived by  whatever natural cravings and thoughts our minds dictated, living as rebellious  children subject to God’s wrath like everyone else. (4) But God still loved us  with such great love. He is so rich in compassion and mercy. (5) Even when we  were dead and doomed in our many sins, he united us into the very life of Christ  and saved us by his wonderful grace! (6) He raised us up with Christ the exalted  One, and we ascended with him into the glorious perfection and authority of the  heavenly realm, for we are now co-seated as one with Christ!
