Satan is jealous of God, the Father, and wants to take all of His glory. He has painted a false image of God to make Him out to be “mad at us” and afar off where we are unable to reach Him. We are learning to become aware of just how much God loves us, how close He is and wants a relationship more than we can comprehend.
• Satan has created an illusion of who God the Father is and our unawareness of God is Satanically contrived
• His drive is to discourage us from having a relationship or even want one with the Father, the veil Satan has created is very thin, but has prevented our seeing Him
• Since the beginning, He is our Father
• He, God, is the most loving Father
• He wants to give more than we can ask or think
• He wants a relationship more than we are aware of
37 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling.
34 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, just as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not have it!
1 John 4:8, 16
8 The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
16 We have come to know and have believed the love which God has b for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
19 “Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.
20 “For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.”
20 Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within
9 “Or what man is there among you who, when his son asks for a loaf, will give him a stone?
10 “Or if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he?
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 what is good to those who ask Him!
John 1:1, 2, 14
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God.
14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
