Letters From God

Family

All those who are born again of water and of spirit are able to see and enter the Kingdom of God. It is their birth right, the promise of the New Land and the New Way of Living.

All those are in and of the family of God, where we have an eternal loving Father, Abba, who loves us and cherished us. We have a brother in Jesus Jeshua who has paid the price of our salvation and redemption. And we are able to praise and glorify God through the  infilling of the Holy Spirit who gives us a unique language.

This language bypasses our mind and speaks directly to God from spirit to Spirit. It is described as the least of the gifts(of Holy Spirit) but it is the one that opens the door to all the others.

Our heavenly father and Jesus call us into a family relationship with themselves, and all others like this. It is the "glue" of the Holy Spirit who binds us together as one. Between the Father, Son and Holy Spirit there is total unity and oneness of purpose. We are able to become a part of this unique and beautiful "Oneness" by our obedience at call and enter and see their Kingdom.

We are Family, a Peculiar People, belonging to God. Separate from the rest of the world's people. The New Israel, made up of the old Israel and Gentiles (non Israelites). God has never forgotten or abandoned Israel, ( the Twelve Tribes). They are ever a people know and beloved of Him. Even if they don't know who they are - God knows and is ever mindful of them. But of course Jesus is the Savior of All people, a light to lighten the path of the Gentiles, as well as Israel. We are bond together by our love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

So imagine how God "feels" when we, His family, fight and squabble, backbite and argue amongst ourselves. We can hardly imagine that He is happy about this! Our strength as a family comes from being united as one heart, one mind, one body. Our rebirth into His family is a far stronger bond than the our differences of opinions.

God commands a blessing where brethren dwell in Unity. It is enormously powerful  to be in unity with each other as the body of Christ. Which is why the enemy stirs up so much strife within and throughout the Body. He understands, even if we don't, that as the unified body of Christ, we are too powerful for him to prevail against. We have total victory in Jesus Jeshua by standing united with Him and for Him.

Together we stand; divided we fall

I believe it is time for the body of Christ to mature into unity of purpose, to welcome our Bridegroom. Our bond of Family - of love for our God, and if we are to obey the 2nd greatest commandment " love for one another" is far greater than the sum of our differences. Should we not be tolerant of the variety within the body - embrace it rather than fight it?

If we are to receive the latter rain as our Father, Brother and Spirit have promised we need to be United. Fighting our enemies (not each other!) with the Angel Armies. It is God's great desire to give us the latter rain, to let it fall upon us. We desire it too.

Are we able to overcome our differences to stand united as  the One Body of Christ? Yes I believe we can and will. Amen


Heb 2:3-4 This salvation,which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy
Spirit distributed according to his will.

Eph:3 14-15 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Psalm 133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

1 Cor 10:16-17 When we drink the cup of blessing, aren't we taking into ourselves the blood, the very life, of Christ? And isn't it the same with the loaf of bread we break and eat? Don't we take into ourselves the body, the very life, of Christ? Because there is one loaf, our many-ness becomes one-ness - Christ doesn't become fragmented in us. Rather, we become unified in him. We don't reduce Christ to what we are; he raises us to what he is. MSG

Eph 60 10-13 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
