The Good Father

 

“This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike “What’s next, Papa?”  God’s Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are.  We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children.  And we know we are going to get what’s coming to us—an unbelievable inheritance!  We go through exactly what Christ goes through.  If we go through the hard times with him, then we’re certainly going to go through the good times with him!”   Romans 8:15-17, MSG (emphasis added).

My child, I am the Good Father.  I am not detached from My children I am concerned about every aspect of your lives and being.  I have numbered each hair on your heads.  I have designed your unique fingerprints and even the very irises of your eyes are one of a kind.  This is not the work of someone who loves from afar but the actions of a loving and doting Father.

I want to emphasize My desire for oneness with you and all who are truly Mine.  Even as the darkness rolls across the nations, My children are to look to Me for I AM the Light of the World.  I AM in control.  I will maneuver the evil one through his pride into the trap I have set for him and his agents of evil.  I will send the armies of heaven to fight alongside My children as they go into the fields to bring in My harvest.

Even as Nehemiah’s men built the wall with their swords strapped to their thighs, so too will My harvesters reap the fields of the world for the souls of men wearing My armor.  My beloved ones are also clothed in their garments of salvation and robes of righteousness: blood-washed and white.  I have neglected nothing to insure ample provisions and supplies for these last-days’ exploits we will do together.

Trust me with your life and the lives of your family.  I will not fail you.  I am with you; My Spirit dwells in you.  Believe that I love you and that I am constantly attentive to your every need. Work with Me, child.  Line up your words to agree with My Word.  Let the works of your hands be done with pure intentions and a clean heart.  Allow My Spirit to shape you into the image of the Son.  Give your spirit, soul, and body to Me so I can release the keys of the Kingdom in full power and authority to you.

Remember My words to you this day.  Doubt and unbelief have launched a full-blown attack on My children to get them to question My Fatherhood and faithfulness toward them.  My devotion to My children is whole-hearted and My resources are unlimited.  I search the hearts of men looking for those who will reciprocate My love with whole-hearted devotion. So be comforted and rejoice as the highly favored child of God you are. Shalom.

“Since you are God’s children, God sent the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, and the Spirit cries out, “Father.”  So now you are not a slave; you are God’s child, and God will give you the blessing he promised, because you are his child”   Galatians 4:6-7, NCV.

  1. He is the Good Father! He sent his only son to redeem us! He freely imparts His grace and mercy to all who come to His son to receive!! I’m reminded of the woman with the issue of blood. The bible says she “She had suffered a great deal from many doctors, and over the years she had spent everything she had to pay them, but she had gotten no better. In fact, she had gotten worse. She had heard about Jesus, so she came up behind him through the crowd and touched his robe. For she thought to herself, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.” Immediately the bleeding stopped, and she could feel in her body that she had been healed of her terrible condition. (‭Mark‬ ‭5‬:‭26-29‬ NLT)
    Under Jewish law, she would have been considered unclean. “If a woman has a flow of blood for many days that is unrelated to her menstrual period, or if the blood continues beyond the normal period, she is ceremonially unclean. As during her menstrual period, the woman will be unclean as long as the discharge continues. (‭Leviticus‬ ‭15‬:‭25‬ NLT).
    Under the law she would would die, for for her impurity would “defile my Tabernacle that stands among them…”(‭Leviticus‬ ‭15‬:‭31-33‬ NLT)

    But Jesus didn’t condemn her for her touch and obviously wasn’t defiled.But HEALED her and BLESSED her! “And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace. Your suffering is over.” (‭Mark‬ ‭5‬:‭34‬ NLT)

    My question to you today is : did she desire the gift or the giver? The bible said “She had heard about Jesus, so she came up behind him through the crowd and touched his robe.” (‭Mark‬ ‭5‬:‭27‬ NLT) She heard of Him, not that she displayed great desire for him, for she tried to discreetly touch him and depart. If she wanted Him(the giver) wouldn’t she have hung around to be near him or at least openly asked for his healing? So let ‘s look at Jesus and his response to this! Jesus looked for her after feeling her touch of faith, and asked “Who touched me?” Why did He do that? He wanted her to know he freely gave her this healing and wanted her to see His loving face. Under law, we only see his back to us. We can’t fulfill the law and neither can we recieve favor from God trying to fulfil the law. The lady with the issue of blood was condemned by the law for it declared her unclean. The law could not help or heal but could only show her that she was unclean. Moses, giver of the law couldn’t see The Lord’s face, though he did mighty miracles through God. The bible says Moses couldn’t see His face: The LORD replied, “I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will call out my name, Yahweh, before you. For I will show mercy to anyone I choose, and I will show compassion to anyone I choose. But you may not look directly at my face, for no one may see me and live.” (‭Exodus‬ ‭33‬:‭19-20‬ NLT) Under law this woman couldn’t touch another person without defiling them but under grace she is made clean by trusting in Jesus’s righteousness. Brothers and Sisters, grace is being given freely, let us not exchange this marvelous grace that makes us right with God for the law! Let us encourage each other to reach out and touch Our Lord and recieve the righteousness He freely wants to give. Look not at yourself but look at Jesus like the woman with the issue of blood. Her focus was “if I just touch the hem of his garment” . She didn’t look at herself or her motives but drew near to The Lord for victory! Let us encourage each other to do the same when in need . He will never turn you away. So let us follow the Savior’s lead! Bless you church family!
