I HAVE ADOPTED YOU. Posted 083020 @ 12.22 pm
I have a word for the Body. The Father is saying: I HAVE ADOPTED YOU. It is written in Ephesians 1.1-5: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ, according as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love; having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, to the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. And because ye are sons, I have sent forth the Spirit of My Son into your hearts crying: Abba, Father. Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then ye are Mine heir through Christ. Behold, what manner of love I have bestowed upon thee, that thee should be called My sons; therefore the world knoweth you not, for it knoweth not Myself.
They which are the children of the flesh, these are not My children; but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. As many as have received Christ, to them gave He power to become My sons, even to them that believe on His name; which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of Myself. For as many as are led by My Spirit, they are My sons. For ye are all My children by faith in Christ Jesus. When your father and your mother forsake you, I will take you up. I will neither leave you nor forsake you, I will not leave you comfortless; I will come to you. I will be with you, as I was with your fathers, that I may incline your hearts unto Myself, to walk in all My ways and to keep My commandments, and My statutes, and My judgments, which I commanded your fathers. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby ye cry: Abba, Father.
Now are ye My sons, and it doth not yet appear what ye shall be; but ye know that when He shall appear, ye shall be like Him; for ye shall see Him as He is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law; for sin is the transgression of the law. And ye know that He was manifested to take away your sins; and in Him is no sin. Let no man deceive you; he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose My Son was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. In this My children are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of Me, neither he that loveth not his brother. For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that ye should love one another. Marvel not if the world hate you. Know that ye have passed from death unto life, because ye love the brethren. Love not in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. If your heart condemn thee, I am greater than your heart, and know all things. And whatsoever ye ask, ye receive of Me, because ye keep My commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in My sight. And he that keepeth My commandments dwelleth in Me, and I in him. And hereby ye know that I abide in you, by My Spirit which I have given you. I HAVE ADOPTED YOU. Amen.
ALL IS WELL AND WELL IS ALL.
