THE FATHERHOOD OF GOD #2
Gal. 1:1. "Paul an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead). 4. Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father."
Gal. 4:4. "God sent forth his Son, made of a woman. 5. To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. 6. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 7. Wherefore you are no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ."
(WHAT A LOADED NUMBER OF VERSES! FIRST IT IS NOT "ADOPTION" BUT "SONSHIP" AS IT SHOULD READ. AND THEN WE ARE ***HEIRS*** OF GOD!! NOW HAVE YOU EVER READ WHERE AN ANGEL IS AN HEIR OF GOD? NO! IT CANNOT BE FOUND IN THE BIBLE. BUT HUMAN BEINGS CAN BECOME AN HEIR OF GOD. THINK ON THAT. MEDITATE ON THAT. IT SHOULD BLOW YOUR MIND! Keith Hunt)
Eph. 1:3. "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ. 17. That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him."
Eph. 2:18. "For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father."
Eph. 3:14. "For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Eph. 4:6. "One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all."
(FROM ALL THE VERSES WE HAVE SEEN, CHRIST IS ALSO GOD, A MEMBER OF THE GODHEAD. SO THIS VERSE HERE TELLS US THE ONE GOD THE FATHER IS SUPREME IN THE GODHEAD, IS ABOVE ALL IN AUTHORITY, AND IS IN EVERY TRUE CHRISTIAN - Keith Hunt)
Col. 1:3. "We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you. 12. Giving thanks unto the Father, which has made us fitting to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light."
(WE HAVE SEEN WE ARE THE HEIRS OF GOD THE FATHER - Keith Hunt)
1 Thes. 1:1. "Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheous, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ. 3. Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God himself and our Father."
1 Thes. 3:11. "Now God himself and our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you. 13. To the ends he may establish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father."
2 Thes. 1:1. "Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2. Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ."
Heb. 1:5. "For unto which of the angels said he at any time .... I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?"
(THERE IT IS IN PLAIN WORDS. GOD THE FATHER HAS NEVER HAD IN MIND TO MAKE ANY ANGEL A SON OF HIS. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE THEN BETWEEN AN ANGEL AND THOSE WHO ARE MADE SONS OF GOD - Keith Hunt)
Jas. 1:17. "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of light. 27. Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this. To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world."
Jas. 3:9. "Therefore bless we God, even the Father."
1 Pet. 1:2. "Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father. 3. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy has begotten us again unto a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead."
(THERE IT IS - WE ARE BEGOTTEN AGAIN - FIRST TIME BY HUMAN PARENTS - NOW BY GOD THE FATHER. WE WERE BORN ONCE TO HUMAN PARENTS. WE SHALL BE BORN AGAIN BY GOD THE FATHER, AT THE RESURRECTION, WHEN WE SHALL BE IN THE VERY KINGDOM OF GOD, NOT KINGDOM OF ANGELS, BUT KINGDOM OF GOD - Keith Hunt)
1 John 1:2. "For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and show unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us."
1 John 2:13. "I write unto you, little children, because you have known the Father....22. .... he is antichrist that denies the Father and the Son. 23. Whosoever denies the Son, the same has not the Father. But he that acknowledges the Son has the Father also. 24. If that you heard from the beginning remains in you, you also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father."
1 John 3:1. "Behold, what manner of love then Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God."
(YES WE ARE SONS OF GOD.....AND NOW FOR THE MIND-BLOWING VERSE.....Keith Hunt)
1 John 3:2. "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it does not appear what we shall be: but WE KNOW, that when he shall appear (Jesus the Christ), WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM; FOR WE SHALL SEE HIM AS HE IS!!!"
WILL YOU BELIEVE WHAT YOU HAVE JUST READ? A CHILD CAN READ IT! A CHILD CAN UNDERSTAND THOSE WORDS! IT SAYS WHAT IT MEANS AND MEANS WHAT IT SAYS. IT IS JUST THAT SIMPLE! ONE DAY TRUE SONS OF GOD, CHRISTIANS, WILL LOOK LIKE JESUS CHRIST AS HE NOW IS IN HIS GLORY. WE SHALL SEE HIM AS HE NOW IS AND WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM!! THE PLAN GOD THE FATHER HAS FOR HIS CHILDREN IS TO MAKE THEM LOOK LIKE AND BE LIKE JESUS IN HIS GLORIFIED FORM!! MAKE NO MISTAKE, DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND, CHRISTIANS WILL NEVER BE EQUAL IN AUTHORITY TO JESUS CHRIST; CHRIST WILL ALWAYS BE OUR HEAD, OUR ELDER BROTHER, THE THE ONE WITH MORE AUTHORITY THAN ANYONE BUT THE FATHER. THE FATHER WILL ALWAYS BE HEAD OF CHRIST - THE SUPREME ONE IN AUTHORITY IN THE UNIVERSE!
THIS IS THE GLORIOUS TRUTH OF THE FATHERHOOD OF GOD! HE IS MAKING A FAMILY! - Keith Hunt
Rev. 14:1. "And I looked, and lo, a Lamb stood on mount Zion, and with him an hundred and forty and four thousand, having his father's NAME written in their foreheads."
Rev. 3:"12. "Him that overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God....and I will write upon him the NAME of my God......"
AND THERE IT IS ONCE MORE. TRUE CHRISTIANS WILL ONE DAY HAVE THE NAME OF GOD ON THEIR FOREHEADS, THE NAME OF GOD WRITTEN ON THEM. HOW PLAINER CAN IT BE GIVEN TO US.
YOU NEED, IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO, TO STUDY MY STUDY CALLED "A CHRISTIAN'S DESTINY" AND SEE FROM YOUR BIBLE THE GLORIOUS PLAN AND GIFT GOD THE FATHER IS WANTING TO SHARE WITH YOU. GOD THE FATHER AND HIS SON JESUS CHRIST ARE THE TWO MOST GIVING PERSONS IN THE UNIVERSE, THE TWO MOST UN-SELFISH PERSONS IN THE UNIVERSE.
THIS IS THE FATHERHOOD OF GOD!!!
BLESS AND PRAISE HIM FOR EVER MORE!
