Last week I was asking Father how to get closer to Him. After a few minutes I heard in my spirit, “Sonship series”.
I temembered that name from a book, or a teaching from a few years back. So when I did a search two books came up. One I already have read, but this one I didn’t. It’s called, “Healing The Orphan Spirit”, by Leif Hetland.
If you, like, like me,… like many people, have felt rejected, abandoned, abused, neglected, used, or offended, if you suffer emotional pain and or physical pain from abuse then I recommend reading this book.
I also highly recommend reading, “The Bait Of Satan” by John Brevere and “The Secret Of The Stairs” by Wade E Taylor (get a copy from his website).
God’s unconditional love is the remedy to these wounds. And if you feel or have been taught that God is the source of your pain, I’m here to tell you that, that is not the truth. Half of the problem of the modern American Church is that not many truly teach Father God’s heart, Will and emotions correctly, if at all. PLEASE, don’t think that some hurtful, mean, nasty Christian was or is speaking God’s heart. I don’t care who they are!
Please read 1 John 4:7-11, but let me share two verses out of the AMP version:
7. “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is (springs) from God; and he who loves [his fellowmen] is begotten (born) of God and is coming [progressively] to know and understand God [to perceive and recognize and get a better and clearer knowledge of Him]. 8. He who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love.”
Just because a fellow Christian seems to have power in the Church, seems to know much about God, does not mean they KNOW God. If they don’t show love, if they aren’t known for being loving, compassionate, caring, etc, then they truly don’t KNOW God.
Obviously, if they snap at someone one day, then give them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they had a bad day. Maybe they are worried about a loved one, they are human after all. Forgive them quickly, and treat them the way you would want to be treated.
Now flip this around. Some people treat others horribly, then go around telling others (gossiping) that THEY were wounded by the people they were just treating horribly! The bully plays the victim! Then all these other people feel sorry for the bully, and turn on the true victim. Be careful of what you listen to!! (The Bait Of Satan is a GOOD book on this subject.)
God’s love is the FOUNDATION to everything with Him. Loving God with everything we are, and loving our neighbor (every person), see Matthew 22:35-40.
Keep your love on. 🙂
