MY HEAVENLY FATHER

Our Father in heaven

MY HEAVENLY FATHER

God is my physical Father

My heavenly Father is a Father to me in every way. He is the one and only true God who has created the heavens and the earth and all that is therein. He created me; therefore, He is my physical Father. (Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works. John 1: 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.)  

God is my spiritual Father

God is also my spiritual Father as He has begotten me with His Spirit. (1 Peter 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. 1 Peter 1: 23  having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,)

God is my adoptive Father

God is my adoptive Father as He has adopted me into his family by His Spirit! (Romans 8:15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” Ephesians 1:5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,)

Your heavenly Father-in-law

WE ARE THE BRIDE OF CHRIST

God is my Father-in-law

The Church is the bride of Christ and I am in the church. When Christ marries the Church God becomes my Father-in-law.

Revelation 19: 7 Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.”

8 And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

9 Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’ ”

Hebrews 11:13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

14 For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland.

16 Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.

Revelations 21:9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.”

10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

24 And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light,

27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

Wouldn’t you like for Him to be your Father too?

ENTER INTO THE JOY OF YOUR LORD

ENTER INTO THE JOY OF YOUR LORD

 There is a day coming when we shall see Jesus as He is and we will be as He is. (1 John 3:2) We will be in the Kingdom that He promised to us and He said that He was going to prepare a place for us in heaven. The joy we will have is really beyond human description because we cannot grasp the awesome difference between heaven and earth. His appearance is will be vastly changed. Giving us an idea of what is in store for us.

Ezekiel 1: 26 And above the firmament over their heads was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like a sapphire stone; on the likeness of the throne was a likeness with the appearance of a man high above it. 27 Also from the appearance of His waist and upward I saw, as it were, the color of amber with the appearance of fire all around within it; and from the appearance of His waist and downward I saw, as it were, the appearance of fire with brightness all around. 28 Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the brightness all around it. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD.

Why do I say it is what is in store for us? Because Jesus said that He is going to share His throne  with us as His Father shared His throne with Jesus. (Revelation 3:21) We have an exceedingly high calling of joy to look forward to. Jesus reveals to us His thoughts of how great a joy it is to be in heaven and set on the throne of God. He felt so strongly for it that He literally sacrificed himself for it.

Hebrews 12:2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

How much should we sacrifice? How much do we want it? Are we willing to follow Jesus example and give our life wholly to Christ? Doesn’t the scripture say we are to be “living sacrifices”?

1 Thessalonians 2:19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Is it not even you in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming?

We must pray that we will be counted worthy to escape what is about to come to this world and by enduring we will be able to stand before Jesus Christ when He comes again for redemption.

Dear Lord, I pray to You to tell You how much I really enjoy and delight in You. I long for that day when I will be filled with joy to see Your face. In Your Holy Name, Amen!
