My revelation on 1 John 3: 1 and 2.
Behold! – look! pay attention to this! consider this! listen to this! hey this is great!
What manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us – what kind of Father’s love is this that is shown to us. This love is not the type we profess or enjoy. We know nothing of this kind of love (our love could be mean, unkind and even murder), but this kind of Father’s love forgives all types of sin and forgets, heals hearts, wounds, sicknesses, comforts by restoring peace, cleanses, restores joy and strength and makes you lift your head again where once it hung in shame, it makes you stand tall and straight, it makes you feel secure and safe for it can never say : “I told you so”: or betray your confidence, this kind of love covers for you, is kind and picks you up when you fall, heals your broken heart, wipes away your tears with sweet assurance, it is pure and true and will always be there, never failing for you can count on it, it never mocks you, it will not make you shrink with shame, but embraces you the way you are, it will not criticize, that flows to you and you can feel the power of it, as it ministers to you, it seems to say, “I know, I know but it is going to be all right, I’ll see to it, I’ll take care, now that you brought it to me, I’ll work it out in my way”. I’ll make crooked things straight, I can make a way where there is no way, I can turn the tide that threatens you to bless you. I can make your enemies to be at peace with you, I can full fill your destiny and desires, and can even do more than you can ask or think. I love you- not mere words- but I have demonstrated my love through My Son, My only Beloved So, Jesus Christ.. I sacrificed Him on the cross of cruelty, shame and suffering so I can reach you through Him and call you My own, and bring you to live with me in My house forever. I suffered with My Son and We went all the way, because We love you and We want you to belong to Us. You are born of My love and I have bestowed My love to you -
that we (sinners, liars, thieves, adulterers, adulteresses, foul mouthed, depraved, filthy cheats, murderers, wicked, unthankful, proud, full of malice, hatred, hypocrites) -
-should be called the sons/daughters of God, (the living God, the Holy God,the Almighty God, the only true God)
Therefore the world (or worldly people or the spirit of this world)
knows us not because it knew Him not.
V2 Beloved (my treasure or precious ones)
now are we the sons of God and it doth not yet appear what we shall be (this is a secret to be shown later
but we know that when He shall appear,
we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is – this is My promise to you.
OH, Hallelujah!!! Glory to God Almighty!!!
