Week 4 – Father Heart of God part 2
At the end of this lesson, you should have a broader vision of DAD’s Heart towards you. Main Points: Father’s Heart from A RELATIONSHIP LEADING TO INTIMACY and how this affects us daily. Desired Outcome1. A revelation and foundation in your heart will set into motion a divine romance. 2. FAITH that no matter what your past is. DAD LOVES YOU AND HAS A GREAT PURPOSE FOR YOU!
KEEP SEEKING DAD’S HEART
How desperate are you for HIM! Without Him you are lost. The essence of His heart is not found in any theology, teaching or even the Bible, He is found in your heart. It’s all about Intimacy and revival
Look in the right place, His grace will always lead you to His amazing presence. Work at this relationship with ALL your heart, mind and soul.
FIGHT THE FIGHT OF FAITH!
“SINS OF THE FATHERS” DAVID’S ANCESTORS. DAVID. DOWNLINE CURSES
WHO HAS THE PERSONALITY PROBLEM?
His names reveal his personality. What a character!
Problem: We see ourselves through our own values; don’t feel that He can love me
Answer: Change your values, have faith in His WORD REGARDING YOU! – You are forgiven now forgive. Check “Character of God”
John 17 JESUS: “ I have declared them Your name , and will declare it.” WHY? “That the Love with which You loved Me will be in them.” When Jesus reveals the Father’s love to us, or when we “see God” in a greater way, the FATHER’S LOVE FOR JESUS is imparted to our hearts. Imagine the massive implications of this. Jesus taught us in this passage that what we SEE effects how we FEEL. In other words, our emotions are changed, and love is imparted to us to the degree that we see God’s splendour or encounter His name.
I HAVE DECLARED THEM YOUR NAME
John 17:26 I made known to them Your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which You have loved Ye may be in them and I in them.” -ESV
JESUS’ whole ministry centred around making His Father’s heart known to all. JESUS let them know what DAD was like. Jesus revealed the infinite SPLENDOUR and awesome beauty of DAD’s personality
His ministry reflected the indescribable loveliness of our DAD. His claim to God was that he had made His Father Heart known to the people – OUR VISION!
TOUCHING DAD’S HEART
The Platform for ALL life and ministry. Hearing His voice. Recognising His voice. Reacting/Responding to His voice. Repentance as a lifestyle.NO TIME FOR PASSIVITY!
THE HOLY SPIRIT FLOWS FROM HIS HEART
The source of the strength, wisdom, knowledge you need right now. Jesus Christ promised that He would not leave us alone but would leave His Mighty Holy Spirit. DAD’s voice boomed at JESUS CHRIST’s baptism, “THIS IS MY BELOVED SON, LISTEN TO HIM”. The flow of the mighty HOLY SPIRIT is HIS HEART. Hear the WHISPER – YOU NEED TO GET CLOSE
WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW
His heart for the Lost ‘FOR GOD SO LOVED’. HIS LONGING HEART: For relationship/intimacy/friendship. Touch His heart: encounter Grace. Jesus reveals the Father’s heart. HIS HEARTBEAT = favour, approval, provision, blessing, concern, identity, total forgiveness, protection, pride in you, tenderness, caring, kindness, patience, compassion, and power
2 CORINTHIANS 2:14
But thanks be to GOD, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of Him everywhere. 15 For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing
