Love Letter from your Father … in TWO Parts

Part ONE:  God's Holy Word (KJV) writes to us this...

Psalm 139:1-3 (KJV)
O lord, thou hast searched me, and known me.
Thou knows my down-sitting and my up-rising, Thou understands my thought afar off.
Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.

Matthew 10:29-31 (KJV)

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

Genesis 1:27 (KJV)

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Acts 17:28 (KJV)

28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

Jeremiah 1:4-5 (KJV)

Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

Ephesians 1:11-12 (KJV)

11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who works all things after the counsel of his own will:
12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.

Psalm 139:15-16 (KJV)

15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

Acts 17:26 (KJV)

26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

John 8:41-44 (KJV)

41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

1 John 4:16-17 (KJV)

16 And we have known and believed the love that God has toward us. God is love; and he that dwells in love dwells in God, and God in him. 17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

1 John 3:1 (KJV)

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knows us not, because it knew Him not.

31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knows that ye have need of all these things.
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV)

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Jeremiah 31:3 (KJV)

The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn thee.

Psalm 139:17-18 (KJV)

17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

Jeremiah 33:3 (KJV)
Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knows not.
Deuteronomy 4:29 (KJV)
29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
Psalm 37:4 (KJV)

23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
John 17:26 (KJV)
26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:

I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repents, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
Ephesians 3:14-15 (KJV)
14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
John 1:12-13 (KJV)
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
Luke 15:11-32 (KJV)
11 And he said, A certain man had two sons:
12 And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.
13 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.
14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard music and dancing.
26 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.
27 And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
28 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and entreated him.
29 And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gave me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
30 But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
31 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.
32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

Selah.
Eternally Yours, Father God

(In other words...)



Part TWO:  Hear God saying to you, today...

Dear Child of Mine,
You may not know me, but I know you.  I am familiar with all your ways and everything about you, even the number of each hair on your head. For you were made in My Image.
 Nobody in the world knows when you are lying down, or rising up, to the deepest parts of your being, like Me.  I am with you every place where you sit. I  understand your thoughts you think, whether big thoughts, or small.
In Me, you live, and move, and have your being.  For you are My offspring.  I knew you even before you were conceived.
I chose you when I planned creation.  You were not a mistake!  For all of your days are written in my book.  I determined when you would be born and where you would live.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made.  I knit you together in your mother’s womb, and brought you forth on the day you were born.
I have been misrepresented by those who don’t know Me.  I am not distant and angry, but Am the Complete Expression of Love. And it is My desire to lavish My Love on you, simply because you are My Child and I AM your Father.
I offer you more than your earthly father ever could, for I am The Omnipotent Father, your Heavenly Father.  Every good gift you receive comes from My Hand.  For I am your Provider and I meet ALL your needs. 
My plan for your future has always been filled with hope, because I love you with an everlasting love.  My thoughts toward you are countless as the sands on the seashore.
And I rejoice over you with singing.  I will never stop doing good to you.  For you are My treasured possession.  I desire to establish you with all my Heart and all My soul, and I want to show you Great and Marvelous things.
If you seek me with all your heart, you will find Me. Delight in Me and I will give you the desires of your heart. For it is I Who gave you those desires.
I am able to do more for you than you can possibly imagine, for I am your Greatest Encourager.  I am also The Father Who comforts you in all your troubles.  When you are broken-hearted, I am close to you.
As a shepherd carries a lamb, I have carried you close to My Heart.  One day I will wipe away every tear from your eyes, and I will take away all the pain you have suffered on this earth.
I am your Father and I love you even as I love My Son, Jesus.  For in Jesus, My Love for you is revealed.  He is the Exact Representation of My Being.  He came to demonstrate that I am for you, not against you, and to tell you that I am not counting your sins. 
Jesus died so that you and I could be reconciled.  His death is the Ultimate Expression of My Love.  I gave up everything that I Love that I might gain your love. If you receive the Gift of My Son Jesus, you receive Me, and nothing will ever separate you from My Love again.
Come Home and I will throw the biggest party that Heaven has EVER seen.  I have always been Father, and I will always be Father.
My question is, “Will you be My Child?  I am waiting for you.”
When you draw close to me, I am close to you.

I love you!
  Eternally Yours, Father God


(In other words...)
I love you!  I am your Father Who you have been looking for all your life.




Can you see His Love all around you, and around your children?  Now, more than ever, more often than ever, we can see the personal joy and ear-to-ear smile of The Person of The Holy Spirit as He is walking with us, just as you hear in Keith's face-to-face encounter with Him, and in a visit in Heaven.  He brings such joy!  Share this with everyone you know as much as possible each day because time is so, so short. 
     Love in Christ,
     Keith, Brenda, and Team TTM
