///// SUNESIS OF CHRIST /////
Day 333| November 28, 2020 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng
Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.
The Lord Jesus came into the world to introduce us to a wonderful relationship with God: the Fatherhood of God. Abraham and the old saints knew Him as El Shadai, the sufficient God or the God who is more than enough(Gen 17:1). El Elyon, the most high God (Gen 14:18-21), El Olam. The everlasting God (Gen 21:33) El Ro’i, the God who sees me (Gen 16:13).
Later on, through Moses; the people were brought into a more personal revelation of God; YAHWEH. Yahweh or Jehovah as we have it in the English language today means “the unchanging, eternal, self-existent God,” the “I am that I am” and the “covenant keeping God”. All these names of God which also epitomized His character portrayed Him as the all great one. The people knew God as the monarch of the universe who they ought to worship and fear. In fact it was a fearful thing to mention names like Jehovah because of the fear people had of God.
The Lord Jesus was the first person to get personal and declare God as Father. This was news in Israel at the time. He was nearly lynched for calling God Father (John 10:32-33). Apparently the people understood what it meant to say Jehovah is your Father unlike many Christians today but Jesus is the bearer of perfect knowledge of God as declared by the Bible. He knows the Godhead better than any other person (John 1:18).
By far, the Fatherhood of God as brought to us by the Lord Jesus is one of the most important revelations we can have of God. God being Father connotes so much, heads can’t contain only the spirit of man can contemplate.
To touch the surface, it means you are in the family of God by your new birth. It also means the Spirit and nature of God is in you because God is the one that produced you. It further means you an heir of God because sons inherit of their Father, meaning you have right to the heritage of God. If all these mean something then you are not ordinary at all and you couldn't be vulnerable in any way. You are a child of the monarch of the universe.
// 🗣️ SAY BY FAITH
I know who I am, I am a bonafide child of God. I am a member of the Family of God and I share in the Heritage of GOD.
