OUR FATHER WITHIN US

OUR FATHER WITHIN US

It is another year we celebrate Father’s Day and it is my first year without my earthly father who went home to be with our Lord, March 31st of this year. I really miss my Dad but I am so glad he is healed and fully alive with Our Father. Even though I miss being with my Dad, his room in my heart is now occupied by Our Father, Daddy, ABBA, and my Papa. I am in awe that even if we don’t have an earthly father, Our Father didn’t leave us as orphans in this world but He came to live within us, aren’t you? Our brother John, put it this way in I John 3:1-3. (Taken from the Amplified Bible)

 

 See what an incredible quality of love the Father has shown to us, that we would [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the CHILDREN OF GOD! And SO WE ARE! For this reason, the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, WE ARE [even here and] now CHILDREN OF GOD, and it is not yet made clear what we will be [after His coming]. We know that when He comes (to earth) and is revealed, we will [as His children] be like Him because we will see Him just as He is [in all His glory]. And everyone who has this hope [confidently placed] in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure (holy, undefiled, guiltless).

 

 

Wow!!! Children of God, what an honor and a privilege it is to be known and loved by Our Father!

 

Because we are Our Father’s children, we live in the Heavenly Kingdom ruled by Truth and Righteousness. There are no lies, deceptions, darkness, fear, anxiety, or worries in here. The Kingdom of God within us, where our Father, Lord Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit live is described this way in the scriptures:

 

  • Justice and Judgement are thy habitation (the abiding place, where our Father is seated) of your throne, Father; Mercy and Truth go before your face. (Psalm 89:14)

 

This means equity, equality, and all that is just and right is always where our Father abides, within us. Even though the world we live in is dark and unjust, we live in the Kingdom of God which is never that way!

 

  • We live in a city not made by hands but a city whose Builder and Maker are GodMt. Zion.

 

In Hebrews 12:22, Mt. Zion is called “The City of the Living God.” Just think, within us, where Christ seated us with Him, in a Heavenly Place, (Ephesians 2:6) it is described as:

 

  • A Place of Innumerable Angels in Festal Gathering
  • The General Assembly of the Firstborn (Jesus Christ our Lord)
  • All those Born-again and Registered as Citizens of Heaven
  • All those Redeemed by the Blood of Christ
  • A Place where Jesus Christ, our Mediator, who united us back with Our Father through His blood abides.

 

 

  • In this City and Kingdom where we live, there is never any distinction of class (rich or poor). Our genders are embraced, (male and female). We are loved and treated the same by our Father because He created and designed the colors of our earth-suits, (Black, White, African, Asian, Indian, Latino, etc.). (Galatians 3:28)

 

  • We live in the Awesome Kingdom Ruled by Our Father of:

 

Truth

Love

Kindness

Justice

Grace

Life

Peace

Joy

Freedom

Mercy

Forgiveness

Honor

Power

Humility

Wisdom

Unity

Strength

Weakness

Righteousness

Patience

Faith

 

Even though everything around us feels like it is unraveling, Our Father nor our Lord Jesus Christ are moved by any of these things. Jesus Christ is the controlling and cohesive force of the universe and everything is held together by Him.

 

So, rejoice, my brothers and sisters, we are loved and adored by Our Father whose Kingdom within us can never be shaken or moved! (Hebrews 12:27-28)


WE HAVE AN AWESOME FATHER WITHIN US… ENJOY HIM!

  1. Beautiful, my sister. My condolences again — I’m still grieving my day and he has been gone almost 40 years. But yes, incredible comfort that he and your dad are where all is peace, love, and comfort. Much love.
