Jesus didn’t come to introduce God to us.
Every other’s before Him (so to speak) introduced God to the people, so they knew Him as God.
His coming was to introduce THE FATHER in God to us; because the people didn’t know Him as thus, they called Him a blasphemer.
To call God ‘FATHER’ was seen as over familiarity, a contempt to the DIVINE ONE.
The generality of men couldn’t grasp this, so He took the twelve aside to show them that lonely dimension in the heart of the FATHER who CRAVES for children not subjects; a God who yearns so desperately for SON’S and DAUGHTERS not just creations!
On this note, Jesus said
“Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your FATHER knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our FATHER which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name,” Matthew 6:8-9.
Jesus is the PHYSICAL EMBODIMENT of our HEAVENLY FATHER. A true Father will never allow any evil to come near his children; he will gladly and willingly take BULLETS for them.
The love of the FATHER was demonstrated by JESUS when He took the BULLETS for us all before the cross and on the cross!
Behold what manner of Love the FATHER has given unto us, that we should be called the SONS OF GOD!
He purchased SONSHIP for us by giving HIS BLOOD…. when one turns to Him, there comes a TRANSFUSION OF THE DIVINE BLOOD INTO OUR SPIRIT’S.
He let His BLOOD FLOW OUT OF HIM TO FLOW INTO US!
