FROM THE FATHER
By Glenn H. Jackson
["Reflections" Of The Father's Heart]
* One does not "determine" My true Nature by the "experiences" of their "own" life - or through "outward" circumstances [sense knowledge and perception] - but, rather, by
taking [the revelation of] My written Word as their final authority [on a continual basis], and through time spent in intimate fellowship and communion with Me in the "inner chamber"
[the secret place of My Presence].
"determine" - to conclude or ascertain, as after reasoning, observation, etc.
"sense knowledge" -
that which is perceived by what one feels, hears, sees or thinks based on their outward circumstances; that which is perceived [and expressed] through the soul [mind, will, emotions]- apart
from "revelation" [the Holy Spirit - Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation];
...."He who has My commandments [gained
a revelation of the Father's Will] and keeps [remembers, exalts, honors, magnifies, does] them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and
will disclose Myself to him ...."If anyone loves Me, he will keep [remember, exalt, honor, magnify, do] My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode [dwell]
with him".... John 14:21, 23 NASB
...."we consider and look not to the things that are seen [the lower reality - that which is real to the five
physical senses] but to the things that are unseen [through faith in the higher Reality of God's Word]; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting)
[subject to change], but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting [Eternal]".... 2 Corinthians 4:18 The Amplified Translation
