God Our Father

"Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord, make His Paths Straight" said the greatest prophet of all time - John the Baptist

No one had ever baptised people for repentance in Israel before. It was totally new , but it was "of God" and it was Right!

All the disciples were baptized by John for the remission of sins - even I was and My Father was pleased. I AM the Author of your faith, the Prototype, if you follow in my footsteps, do as I did, speak as I spoke, be as I was. I didn't fail but overcame, so will you. You can not fail because Love never fails!

Be bold, be on fire, consumed with the Love for your God. Death of the body is not the issue, Death of the soul IS. If you must fear, FEAR HIM who can destroy your very essence - your eternal being. Fear God and Live

This generation has no understanding of the fear of the Lord. They see Me as a grand-daddy - always pleased and positive. But I AM not a granddad - I AM a Father- because you are My children, not my grandchildren.

Jacob adopted Ephraim and Manasseh as his "sons", with an equal inheritance with Joseph. Because only a son could have a direct inherence - not a grandson. A father has direct authority and influence with his sons - they are directly under his authority. So it is with my Sons - I am directly in contact and they are directly responsible. No hiding behind anyone else. A son may try to hide his deeds but the Father will see. Make sure your deeds are righteous when fully exposed to the Light, because all will be revealed.

A true father will discipline a beloved son, to give him correction, to allow the child the opportunity for redemption. A false father ; 1) wouldn't bother or 2) would be overbearing, finding fault in everything. But I AM not like that.

Those I love I rebuke (correct) and chasten. A wise child/son hears the correction and does it. A foolish son ignores it and goes on sinning. Do I love the foolish sons less? - No but I can't bless as I would desire. I can not use a foolish son for My glory. The obedient son may share the Father's glory and favour (like Jesus) but a foolish son misses out.

Moses was meek (humble) and when his sister attacked him for his Ethiopian wife, he didn't retaliate, he bowed his head before the barrage. The Lord defended Moses and punished Miriam for her attack.

A disciplined son is a disciple.

A submitted son is a joy to behold.

A mature son is one who may inherit the Father's legacy and operate as a true steward. Administers the Father's will and receive the fullness of the Father's provision. He has "entered his maturity". The Father can step back and allow the son to administer on His behalf. He is a master in his right, having earned it.

 

Mark 1 3-4 a voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.’ ” And so John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins

Heb 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.

John 12:5 But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him.

1 Cor 13: 8   Love never fails...

Gen 48: 5,6 And now your two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, who were born to you in the land of Egypt before I came to you in Egypt, are mine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine. Your offspring whom you beget after them shall be yours;
they will be called by the name of their brothers in their inheritance. (Jacob speaking)

Prov 15:5 A fool despises his father's instruction, But he who receives correction is prudent.

Number 12 The story of Moses, Miriam and Aaron in reference to Moses' wife

Prov 23: 24 The father of a righteous child has great joy; a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him.

Prov 3:12 ..because the LORD disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in.
