Don't Forget Your Godly Ancestry!

Thursday, July 11, 2013 (6:37 am)

by George Whitten, Editor of Worthy Devotions

James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

Last week, a rare archaeological discovery was made in Northern Israel. Archaeologists discovered a 1/2 meter statue of Hercules which they say was dated to the second century.

In Greek mythology, Hercules was the son of the Greek god Zeus, and the mortal mother Alcmene — the wisest and most beautiful of all mortal women. Hercules was said to surpass all mortal men in strength, size and skill. How did Hercules become such a powerful mortal according to mythology? It was because his father was the Greek god, Zeus.

While this is a mythological story, we as saints of the most high have a real Heavenly Father who sits on His throne in heaven. While we live in these mortal bodies, we're called to do extraordinary things in this life! We have a Spiritual Father sitting on the throne who wants to give us wisdom from above. He wants to give us "peace that passes all understanding." And He's calling us to live a life outside this natural realm — a life worthy of a "King and a Priest" of the Most High.

While Hercules was a myth — your life is a reality — the reality that God is Your heavenly Father! Don't place God in a box — but recognize that God is calling you to live outside the box! Your life before you were born again was a "mortal" life, but having crossed over, you're now called to live a supernatural life! So live it — because your life is an inheritance directly from your Heavenly Father!

    If we read the Bible and know of the world before the Flood, we know there was a mating of the Sons of God and the Daughters of me and from them came men that were Giants and mighty men.  Thus Hercules
