Perfect love of the Father

1 John 4:18
New International Version (NIV)

18 There is no fear in love. But perfect(complete in every way) love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love

  • perfect : complete in every way
  • drive out : same word used when Jesus drives out demons
  • fear -> has to do with punishment
    • no condemnation

Romans 8:15
New King James Version (NKJV)

15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”

God Dwells where we Dwell

When Israel in the Wilderness 

Exodus 13:21-22
New King James Version (NKJV)

21 And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night.22 He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people.

When Israel in Tabernacle

  • When all lived in Tents
  • God also lived in a tent called mishkan ( Tabernacle )

After crosssing Jordan

  • When they are to attack Jerico
  • Lord Jesus appeared with a sword in His right hand
  • Why Jesus appeared as a warrior?
    • Because His people is in warrior mode

When Israelite’s were in slavery in Egypt

  • The Lord appeared in The Burning Bush.
    • As if to say,
    • “I am feeling your heat”
    • “I have come down to deliver you”

The Birth of Christ

Father’s love to the ONLY Son, Jesus

John 17:24
New King James Version (NKJV)

24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.

Proverbs 8:30
New King James Version (NKJV)

30 Then I was beside Him as a master craftsman;
And I was daily His delight,
Rejoicing always before Him,

Fresh reason for the Father to Love the Son

John 10:17
New King James Version (NKJV)

17 “Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again.

How much it could have caused God

We might not know how much it caused God the Father to send His Son

  • Pain of the One giving, the Pain of the One loving the Beloved

I don’t believe God is emotionless

  • We are made in Gods image and we have emotions, so God will have emotions, so God can be Grieved, God can be delighted, God can be Happy

Jesus to Nicodemus

  • Nicodemus who knows all about Old Testament and a Leader
  • Jesus told him to be born again

John 3:16
New King James Version (NKJV)

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

  • Jesus was born to die
  • Whoever means not only Jews, WHOEVER. That’s why Nicodemus was shocked.

God’s Heart is not to Perish

  • Should not Perish

Luke 2:11
New King James Version (NKJV)

11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

  • Not a law giver like Moses
  • Jesus, Yeshua in Hebrew means Savior
    • Saving us from our sins
    • Saving us from our guilt
    • Saving us from our temporal needs
    • Saving us from our addictions
    • Saving us from the separation from God
    • Saving us from our situations

God’s love first

  • God send Jesus because of God’s love for us
    • God’s love first.
    • Death of Christ is the effect of God’s love
    • God Loved us long before He send Jesus
    • God send Jesus because of God’s love
  • Its WRONG to think “Death of Jesus Christ on the Cross is the cause for God loving us”

God didn’t send Jesus to Condemn

John 3:17
New King James Version (NKJV)

17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

Who can be against us?

  • One who is Omniscient : All knowing
  • One who is Omnipotent : All Powerful

Romans 8:31-32
New King James Version (NKJV)

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

  • Who can be against us?
  • What can be against us?
  • What is enemy against us?
  • What is satan against us?
  • What is diseases against us?
  • What is problems against us?
  • Even God was for us when the man was against Him

Blood

  • Blood of One Man (Jesus) has to be shed because of Another man’s (Adam’s) disobedience.
  • God made all mankind of one blood
  • Diseases can be seen in the blood, that’s why we go for blood test for testing
  • Sin starts in the blood
  • After a person dies, the first place it gets decaying is their blood
    • That’s why the Embalming Chemicals will be injected to a dead body in their blood stream to stop decomposition/decaying
  • Bible says “The life of the flesh is in the Blood”
  • That’s the necessity of the Virgin Birth
    • Research says Blood is not transmitted from Mother (Placenta ) to the Fetus
    • Woman’s ovum does not have the capacity to create its own blood
    • Only after the introduction of male sperm, the fetus in itself starts developing Capillaries and Blood Streams
    • Saying this reverently “The Holy Spirit Provided the Seed”
    • He Conceived in the Virgin’s womb, Christ.

Unasked

  • God loved us, unasked
  • God send His Son, unasked

Freely give us All things

Romans 8:32
New King James Version (NKJV)

32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

Biggest Blessing : Jesus : Eternal Blessing : Best thing the heaven had

How not with Him also freely give us all things?

  • Healing
  • Health
  • Provision
  • Protection
  • Blessings

Matthew 6:30
New King James Version (NKJV)

30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

Matthew 7:11
New King James Version (NKJV)

11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

He gave you an unasked Biggest Gift, Jesus, How much more if you ask

 

I Will

New Covenant

Jeremiah 23:1-8
New King James Version (NKJV)

23 “Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!” says the Lord. Therefore thus says the Lord God of Israel against the shepherds who feed My people: “You have scattered My flock, driven them away, and not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for the evil of your doings,” says the Lord. “But I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries where I have driven them, and bring them back to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them; and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, nor shall they be lacking,” says the Lord.

Matthew 18:12-14

New King James Version (NKJV)

12 “What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine and go to the mountains to seek the one that is straying? 13 And if he should find it, assuredly, I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over the ninety-nine that did not go astray.14 Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.

  • The Good Shepherd Left the 99
  • The Good Shepherd go to the mountains to seek
  • The Good Shepherd finds the lost
  • The Good Shepherd rejoices

Its all Jesus, the Good Shepherd

Shepherds who Feed

Shepherds who feed My people

Jeremiah 23:1-8
New King James Version (NKJV)

23 “Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!” says the Lord. Therefore thus says the Lord God of Israel against the shepherds who feed My people: “You have scattered My flock, driven them away, and not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for the evil of your doings,” says the Lord. “But I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries where I have driven them, and bring them back to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them; and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, nor shall they be lacking,” says the Lord.

“Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord,
“That I will raise to David a Branch of righteousness;
A King shall reign and prosper,
And execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.
In His days Judah will be saved,
And Israel will dwell safely;
Now this is His name by which He will be called:

THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.[a]

“Therefore, behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “that they shall no longer say, ‘As the Lord lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,’ but, ‘As the Lord lives who brought up and led the descendants of the house of Israel from the north country and from all the countries where I had driven them.’ And they shall dwell in their own land.”

Reference

IT IS NOW

Time when

  • I(Father God) will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries
  • bring them back to their folds
  • they shall be fruitful and increase
  • from the north country and from all the countries

Now Jews are back to Jerusalem

  • from North ( Russia : Moscow )

They shall

  • fear no more,
  • nor be dismayed,
  • nor shall they be lacking

What these shepherds feed People with?

  • THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • This is a Gift
  • This is opposite to Self Righteousness: which you get by concentrating/correcting on yourself ( on your deeds and activities )

Sheep having no shepherd

Sheep having no shepherd is the Reason for being :

  • weary
  • scattered

Matthew 9:36
New King James Version (NKJV)

36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.

What is The Good Shepherd’s part?

Matthew 18:12-14

New King James Version (NKJV)

12 “What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine and go to the mountains to seek the one that is straying? 13 And if he should find it, assuredly, I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over the ninety-nine that did not go astray.14 Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.

  • The Good Shepherd Left the 99
  • The Good Shepherd go to the mountains to seek

What is Our Part?

  • Consent to be saved
  • Consent to be carried
  • Consent to be found
  • Consent to be loved
  • Consent to be cared

This is called SALVATION ( Consenting to be saved )

We are enemies in our Minds towards God

  • We are enemies in our minds towards God
  • Thats why repentance must happen in our minds

Colossians 1:21
New King James Version (NKJV)

21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled

Romans 8:7

Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.

Romans 5:10
