Bible Questions Answered:
“...after all we are all god's children...”
Robby/San Diego, California U.S.A.
We have all been created by God, but God is “not,” The Father of us all! God is not Father to the lost, those who refuse His “pardon for sins,” through His Son The Lord Jesus Christ.
God is Father to the redeemed, this called adoption:
Our great God, knew what our choices would be long before we were ever born.
God's Omniscience: (All Knowing.)
Job 42:2 KJV
I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be with holden (withheld) from thee.
Isaiah 46:9,10 KJV
9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like Me,
10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure:
Children Of God:
Matthew 5:9 KJV (Followers of Christ.)
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Romans 8:14,15,23,28,29 NLT
14 For all who are led by The Spirit Of God are children of God.
15 For ye (The Christian) have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received
The Spirit Of Adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
23 And we believers also groan, even though we have The Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering. We, too, wait with eager hope for the day when God will give us our full rights as His adopted children, including the new bodies He has promised us.
29 For God knew His people in advance, and He chose them to become like His Son, so that His Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
30 And having chosen them, He called them to come to Him. And having called them, He gave them right standing with Himself. And having given them right standing, He gave them His glory.
Ephesians 1:5,7 NLT
5 God decided in advance to adopt us into His own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure.
7 He is so rich in kindness and grace that He purchased our freedom with The Blood Of His Son and forgave our sins.
Galatians 3:26 NLT
For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
Galatians 4:4-7 KJV
4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth The Spirit Of His Son into your hearts, crying,
7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
Hebrews 12:5-9 NLT (The Lord disciplines His children.)
5 And have you forgotten the encouraging words God spoke to you as His children? He said, “My child, don’t make light of The Lord’s discipline, and don’t give up when He corrects you.
6 For The Lord disciplines those He loves, and He punishes each one He accepts as His child.”
7 As you endure this divine discipline, remember that God is treating you as His own children. Who ever heard of a child who is never disciplined by its father?
8 If God doesn’t discipline you as He does all of His children, it means that you are illegitimate and are not really His children at all.
9 Since we respected our earthly fathers who disciplined us, shouldn’t we submit even more to the discipline of The Father of our spirits, and live forever?
I John 3:5-11 KJV (The Lord's children.)
5 And ye know that He was manifested to take away our sins; and in Him is no sin.
6 Whosoever abideth in Him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen Him, neither known Him.
7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.
8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose The Son Of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for His seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
Promise Of The Future:
Matthew 13:43 KJV
Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Philippians 3:20,21 KJV
20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for The Savior, The Lord Jesus Christ:
21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body, according to the working whereby He is able even to subdue all things unto Himself.
I John 3:2 KJV
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He (Christ) shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.
Revelation 21:7 KJV
He that over cometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be My son.
Dear friend, if God is not your Father, receive His love Gift today, The Lord Jesus Christ, and be adopted into the very family of God, with your name written in heavens book of life.
Revelation 21:22-27 NLT (Heavenly New Jerusalem.)
22 I saw no temple in the city, for The Lord God Almighty and The Lamb are its temple.
23 And the city has no need of sun or moon, for the glory of God illuminates the city, and The Lamb is its Light.
24 The nations will walk in its Light, and the kings of the world will enter the city in all their glory.
25 Its gates will never be closed at the end of day because there is no night there.
26 And all the nations will bring their glory and honor into the city.
27 Nothing evil will be allowed to enter, nor anyone who practices shameful idolatry and dishonesty—but only those whose names are written in The Lamb’s Book Of Life.
