Answering Him

What does it mean to be a child of God?

To be a child of God means to be an adoptive member of the Divine Family.

When we become children of the living God by taking steps to rediscover our true heritage and giving the Almighty Father our fiat with sincerity of heart, in essence and in fact, we become adoptive members of the Divine Family. The Family – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and, yes, even the Mother* – take us in. They take us into Their Hearts and envelop us in Their bosom, showering us with all we need to become gods by grace (2 P 1:4; Ps 82:6).  (more…)

The softness of God the Father – Reblogged by request

God the Father is the Almighty Creator, the Alpha and Omega of the universe. Yet His softness is remarkable and tenderness unmistakeable in His intimate daily dealings with His children.

God our Almighty Father – Infinite Love in Persona – desires our hearts, our love. What are we going to do?

The Divine Love – Thought for the day

The Divine Love – God the Father in His Majesty and Splendor, Truth and Infinity – intensely desires to penetrate into, and reside fully, in our beings; in the very hearts of our souls. But are we ready to let Our Father come and reside in us as His little, pure, living temples – little lilies – here on earth? In both essence and fact becoming little cities, the (more…)

What Our Father has always wanted

God the Father has always desired to have our heartfelt love. No more, no less. He has both wanted and keeps on deeply and intensely wanting – and waiting for – our love, from the very core of our beings, so that He can rejoice in us and we can reciprocally delight and joyfully rejoice in Him as our real Father Who He Is.

The deepest desire of Infinite Love

Our Father profoundly desires in the Core of His Divine Heart to come and live in us, in the hearts of our souls. Shall we decide to say “yes” and accept Him, therefore, becoming the living arks on earth of the Ark Himself and facilitating the descent from Heaven of the New Israel? Or are we going to continue obstinately in our not-so-savory ways, in essence (more…)

Unrequited Love – 2

The love emerging from God the Father’s Divine Heart is infinite and incessant toward each one of us down here on earth. Therefore why do we continue to so stubbornly insist on staying away from Him?

The Third Ark – 3 – The loneliness in the Ark

Patiently we sit here waiting on our own, all alone in that Ark which will take us safely through the Third Passover to that haven known as Peace. Yet despite the Ark door being flung wide open, only few desire to come in. For neither do most care, nor do they want to know about the Ark. Some think that it is not yet time, that there is much more time left. While others think that it (more…)
