God has always been filled with love – eternal love. God is Love and He never changes!
He created Adam as His son by breathing His divine Life into him.
Adam was living with God in His house (the Garden of Eden – paradise) as the son of God, part of God’s family.
Genesis 2 “7 Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”
Luke 3:38 “Adam, the son of God.”
But Adam sinned and died. He left the garden (God’s presence) and was dead in sin.
We see this same story explained in the prodigal son’s parable who leaves the Father’s house after he sinned and is dead outside the Father’s house.
But God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, who never sinned but died for all our sins on the cross. After He forgave all our sins, God made us alive with Christ, making us God’s beloved Sons who are back in the Father’s house!
Luke 15 “20 So he (son who sinned) got up and went to his father. “But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him. 21 “The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ 22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. 23 Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. 24 For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.”
When we believe in Jesus Christ, God made us Sons of God, part of God’s family!
He has brought us into the Father’s house as beloved Sons and daughters!
Psalm 23 “Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
2 Corinthians 4 ““I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters says the Lord Almighty.””
We were dead in sin but now alive in Christ, thanks to God’s love who has placed us back in the Father’s house (heavenly places), seated as God’s children, holy, blameless, sinless and righteous as God Himself.
Ephesians 2 “4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.”
God and the angels are rejoicing with us in the heavenly places (Father’s house) because the blood of Jesus has made us PERFECT and SINLESS.
Hebrews 12 “you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23 to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, 24 to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.”
We are God’s beloved children and we are also the beautiful bride of Christ!
Song of Songs 1-4You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you. “How beautiful you are, my darling! Oh, how beautiful!……”
Jesus Christ is ONE with us. He made us beautiful and flawless, His bride.
God loves us SO MUCH that He made us His family.
Everyone who believes in Jesus Christ is forgiven all sin and made righteous without works!
Everyone who believes in Jesus, is a righteous Son of God our Father.
Everyone who believes in Jesus, is His flawless beautiful sinless bride!
Everyone who believes in Jesus is back in the Father’s home forever as FAMILY.
