“What ever he asks you to do, do it”
Can only come from intimate knowledge
Of a son, by his mom.
“This is my son in whom I am well pleased”
A testimony from the heavenly Father
Even the child learnt carpentry from the earthly father
“Is this not the carpenter’s son”?
Testimony of the people
The son receives instruction from the father,
Imitates the father,
“Whatever I see my father do, that also I do”
“I cannot do anything except by the father”
The nature and nurture as determinant of character traits,
First born earthly, then spiritual in rebirth.
Our earthly parents as stewards to prepare us,
For the divine purpose of the heavenly father
Our Lord is the firstborn from the dead.
In the created, first Adam we all died.
In the begotten, second Adam we are made alive.
First there will be conflicts,
Flesh versus spirit. ‘Two’ fathers
One ruling flesh, another spirit
But there is only one true father, I AM!
Peace comes through the author, Prince of Peace,
When conflict resolved.
The earthly parents are one by joining, MAN,
God the father is One.
Can only become our true father,
When we reconnect original purpose,
Through the Son
We can then say Abba Father by the spirit of adoption.
“Ye are of the devil your father”
He is liar and the father of lies
“Brood of vipers”!
There is parent and there is parent
Earthly parenthood notwithstanding,
We can choose heavenly parent
We chose the Way, Truth, Life.
So we can truly pray,
“Our Father who art in heaven”
As thought by the Son, our Lord,
And receive answer to our request
“The Lord knows who are His”
An earthly father may doubt paternity,
A mom may hide paternity,
But the heavenly Father “knows those who are His”.
