God's Family

"And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba Father." (Galatians 4:6)

When you are fighting against the filthiness of the spirit and flesh, you can see that God sent His son and sacrificed Him for you. That spirit - the Son's Spirit is available to you. When you cry to God and pray, it is the cry and prayer of Jesus. When you touch a patient it is the touch of Jesus. You are adopted into the family of God. You don't feel estrangement when you go amidst the children of God. You will feel that you are one with the angels. There is no filthiness. You yourself will be able to discern quickly where there is filthiness of the spirit. You won't go there. But if you have to go there, you will dispel the powers of darkness. When Jesus walked on this earth, the darkness fled. Some possessed people said, "Why did you come?"

You will become a son. You won't behave like a servant. "Lord do this. Lord do this".... Some pray only like this. But if you are a son, you won't pray like that. Jesus begot us by His wounds. He is happy about us. He simply cherishes our prayers and treats them like precious commands which tug at His hands. God's purpose is to lead you to conversion and make you call Him 'Abba Father'. You can walk in His palace very freely. When children are small they ask for candy. When they grow up they ask for fine suits. What will you ask? You will ask for the robe of righteousness. No arrow can pierce through and the devil's angels know that you are going this royal high way. They themselves get confused when you wear that robe of righteousness. When you have that robe, it shows you have come home. The calf is cut. The ring of authority is seen on you.

"My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you," (Galatians 4:19).

God is looking at us to see that Christ may be formed in us. When we are in Heaven we will each be like a little Jesus. Once in a vision Sadhu Sundar Singh wanted to know where God will put His seal on the people in Heaven. So he was looking at every face. Every one was like Christ. That is the seal. St. Paul says that he was travailing so that they may become each a little Christ.

Purify your house. Angels will come into your house. An angel came to Mary's house. The people of Heaven cannot bear the smell of sin. They cannot stand it. Mary was a praying woman. She was a daughter of God. So an angel came. When your house is holy, the angels will come and the Lord will come and dwell in your house.

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come into him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20). It is true. He loves to come to your house.
