“And I have revealed to them Your Name, and I am revealing it, so that the love with which You have loved Me shall be in them, and I shall be in them.” John 17:26 Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Jesus is AWESOME!!! He is Our Lord and Saviour and He longs for women and men everywhere to know Him and come to Him. But why does He want people to come to Him? Is it so He can have His ego boosted and He can get all the glory? Perish the thought!!! Jesus’s number one goal is to save us but for the purpose of bringing us back into right standing with The Father. That is righteousness.
You can ask for anything in My Name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. John 14:13 New Living Translation
Jesus loves His (and if you are born again He is your) Daddy!!! He loves to please Him. The Father desires us reconciled to Himself. This is why it was Him(The Father) in Jesus reconciling the world to Himself. He did not leave it to an angel, or a man, or a preacher. He came Himself inside of Jesus.
For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And He gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. 2 Corinthians 5:19 New Living Translation
So we are to share this same wonderful messages as Jesus. We are to reveal the Father to people. But what are we to reveal? How God will burn you to a crisp and send you to hell if you don’t stop, smoking, drinking and sleeping around. A thousand times NO!!! Poppa’s covenant of Grace, Who is Jesus has forgiven every man, woman and child of all of their sins past, present and future. If He’s forgiven you then why would He bring them up? He would not do it. That is man. That is religious preachers who try to live in the New Covenant by Old Covenant rules. Do good, get good!!! Do bad, get beat!!! That’s their motto!! But that is not The Father or Jesus. The Father says you just receive My Son and then you will get Me in the combo meal and I will teach you about Me and show you Who and How I really am. The sad thing is the devil has worked so hard to pervert the name ‘father”. There is and has been an attack of fatherhood from the media, television, even the government. So many times on TV the father is portrayed as a buffoon to be disrespected or treated as a joke. The enemy is behind such mess. He is many times behind some or even most of the bad experiences, sexual abuse, physical abuse, verbal abuse and total lack of care that many children experience from their earthly father. Why? Because He knows you can see your earthly father and if he can paint the image in your mind and heart that ‘father’ is bad, he can damage you and your relationship with The Father. This is his ultimate goal. When a father is absent from a home or is even there and is still absent, this paints pictures in the mind and heart of children that fathers cannot be trusted or depended upon to take care of and provide for their families. Now if this is the image a child or person has in mind of a father they can see, what does it paint for a Father they can’t see? It’s not pretty! You have to learn about the Father through and by The Word of God and look at the relationship Jesus had and has with The Father. Someone may think, “But God allowed Jesus to be crucified and poured out all of His wrath and anger on His Own Son.” This is true, but what many believers don’t know is that Jesus agreed to this assignment. His Father did not say, “You have to do this!”, Jesus agreed and accepted the assignment and told The Father, “If you prepare Me a body, I will go and redeem mankind.” That’s LOVE!!!
Love from the Father to give up His Son as well as Love from Jesus for us. God is only good! If your read The Word of God, you will see this. He allowed what happened to Jesus so that those things would never happen to you. Jesus agreed to it and said I will take the punishment for them and the condemnation and the spitting and the beatings and the other things that went with His Death, burial and resurrection. And He did it so that you can be reunited to your Heavenly Father who said….. for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,” so that we confidently say, “THE LORD IS MY HELPER, I WILL NOT BE AFRAID. WHAT WILL MAN DO TO ME? Hebrews 13:5-6 New American Standard Bible I invite you to spend time with Jesus (The Word) and then you will get to know The Father. Then you will find out how good of a Father He really is.
All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!
