September 5: Key to Receiving Revelation from the Father

1 John 4:16

And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.”

John 5:19-20

“Then answered Jesus and said to them, Verily verily, I say unto you, the son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these that ye may marvel.”

John 5:19-20 “Then answered Jesus and said to them, Verily verily, I say unto you, the son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these that ye may marvel.”

In today’s opening Scripture, the Lord Jesus shows us the key to receiving revelation from the Father; the key to seeing what the Father is doing that we may act it out in faith. John 5:20 tells us “For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He does; and He will show Him greater works than these that you may marvel.” The Father showed the Lord Jesus that mighty work of the healing of the impotent man who had been bedridden for thirty eight years, at the pool of Bethesda just because He loved Jesus.

God’s love for us is the conduit of revelation knowledge from the Father to us. Jesus even bragged on His heavenly Father’s love that He would show Him greater works that the Jews may marvel. The healing miracle of the impotent man sure was a great wonder. The revelation of greater works evidently is a manifestation of greater miracles than that one. The love of the Father for us is an amazing and extraordinary platform of vision and revelation of the works of the Father! What then is the dynamics of the Father’s love for us?

1 John 4:16 tells us this: “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” You must recognize that you are the beloved of God, and that He loves you. Ephesians 1:6 says concerning you that you have been accepted in the beloved. Ephesians 5:1 also calls you God’s beloved. So then, without doubt, you are the beloved of God. You are His dear child. John 3:16 shows us that God loved us so much that He gave to die for our sins His beloved Son, Jesus Christ. You must drink in the love of God.

In John 17:23, the Lord Jesus says something very profound “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”. In other words, He shows us that the Father loves us as much as He loves Jesus. He doesn’t love Jesus more than us; He loves us just as much. Awesome truth, isn’t it? And the proof of our love for God is keeping His Word. By keeping His love commandment, we complete the cycle of love and He manifests Himself unto us (John 14:21-23).

My Solid Front (Confession): Father, I acknowledge Your love for me today and forever, and I thank You for showing me now the things that You have done and You are doing in my life and in my world. By faith, I cooperate with You and Your name is glorified in me.

Further Meditation: Jeremiah 31:3; 1 John 3:1-2.
