COME INTO GOD'S FAMILY

Posted on April 13, 2021 at 2:25 AM

                                                                                                                                                                


John 16:7 AMP  However, I am telling you nothing but the truth when I say it is profitable (good, expedient, advantageous) for you that I go away. Because if I do not go away, the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you [into close fellowship with you]; but if I go away, I will send Him to you [to be in close fellowship with you].

 

 

Lord You have sent the Divine Encourager, The Third Person of the Holy Trinity, the Holy Spirit to us. Thank You! In essence You have come to indwell us Yourself. You are One ~ Three in One ~ so where One is, so are the other Two. You indwell us Lord God. Being Spirit, You can be in us and commune with our spirits.



So how does that affect us? We can have communication. Holy Spirit You told me that You love me, and that has affected me deeply! It demonstrates that I am individual and not just one of many. You love me, Mary, and You call me by Name. God the Father called me by Name and claimed me as His own. That happened when the diagnosis of cancer was given. Jesus, You thought of me on the cross. Your great mind captured each of us and freed us from the enemy prison by forgiving our sins; and when we choose Jesus as our King and choose to believe and follow Him, we receive God’s nature, His DNA; this changes our sin nature to God’s nature;  We actually become His sons and daughters; we are then truly of the family of God.


                                                       


1 John 3:9 (TPT)  Everyone who is truly God’s child will refuse to keep sinning[a] because God’s seed[b] remains within him, and he is unable to continue sinning because he has been fathered by God himself.[c]

Footnotes: 3:9 The Aramaic can be translated “never serves sin.” 3:9 This is the Greek word sperma, “male seed.” See 2 Peter 1:4.3:9 Or “born of God.” We have been fathered by God Himself and we carry His DNA, His genes.

 

2 Peter 1:4 The Passion Translation (TPT) 4 As a result of this, He has given you[a] magnificent promises[b] that are beyond all price, so that through the power of these tremendous promises[c] we can experience partnership[d] with the divine nature, by which you have escaped[e] the corrupt desires that are of the world.

1:4 As translated from the Aramaic. The Greek is plural, “us.”The Greek sentence that extends from vv. 3–5 is somewhat ambiguous. It could also be read as “Through a glorious manifestation of his goodness he has imparted to us his magnificent promises.”

1:4 That is, by claiming these tremendous promises as our very own. Faith always releases the power of the Word of God.

1:4 The Greek word koinonos means “to participate as a partner, to partake of, to be a companion with, to have fellowship with” the divine nature. This is one of the great mysteries of our faith, that God shares his nature with us. We are given birth by the Holy Spirit to be God’s true sons and daughters, and every father imparts his DNA and his “nature” to his children. The Greek word physis (nature) is taken from the word phyō, which means “to give birth, produce, bring forth, or to grow up.” Christ lives in us and transforms us into his very own likeness. In Christ we share with him the divine nature. We will all bear the image of the man from heaven, Jesus Christ. See Rom. 8:9–25; 1 Cor. 15:12–57.

1:4 The Greek word apopheugō also carries the connotation of being “acquitted.”



Being of the family of God and having God’s nature means we have no more desire to sin, for we have received a divine nature. We are fundamentally changed. Now we still are also human, so we will make mistakes and commit a sin, but that sin will no longer have a hold on us; we will recognize it as sin and repent of it. As soon as we do, God forgets and forgives the sin. We are cleansed. In this process we become more like Christ step by step.

 

Our job is to spend time with God, to study the Word, since it is God’s word, thus His thoughts. We can have conversations with God during our meditation and study. This is how intimacy grows. Is it not the same when we develop friendships on earth, we get together and share our ideas and thoughts? It works that way with our God relationship as well. Seek to grow closer to our Savior, to our heavenly Father, to Holy Spirit by spending daily time with Him. There is nothing that gives greater satisfaction than a close encounter with our God.


                                                    


So. my friends, imbibe in the magnificent promises of our Creator! Choose to repent and invite Christ to come and be King of your heart! Commit to follow Him; your sins will be washed away, and Holy Spirit will come and indwell you as a Comforter, Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby.

 

John 14:26 

But when the Father sends the Spirit of Holiness, the One like Me who sets you free, He will teach you all things in My name. And He will inspire you to remember every word that I’ve told you.


Being God’s child comes with all the benefits of inheritors. As we study the Scriptures, we will become familiar with the wonderful gifts we receive from our Father who loves us beyond our imagination. We are His special treasures!

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
