The Narrow Way (Part 18): Your New Family

Updated: Jan 5

[Word Count: 472]

Fourth Word

“While He yet talked to the people, behold, His mother and His [half] brethren stood without, desiring to speak with Him. Then one said unto Him, 'Behold, Thy mother and Thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with Thee.' But He answered and said unto him that told Him, 'Who is My mother? and who are My brethren?' And He stretched forth His Hand toward His disciples, and said, 'Behold My mother and My brethren! For whosoever shall do the Will of My Father which is in Heaven, the same is My brother, and sister, and mother.'" ‭‭-- Matthew‬ ‭12‬:‭46‬-‭50‬ ‭KJV‬‬

The Relationship between the Members of the GODHEAD (GOD The Father, GOD The Word and GOD The Spirit) is the Eternal Template for all relationships in the Kingdom of the Heavens. And since sin is soon to be eradicated from existence it is safe to say the Eternal Template will apply to all GOD's children throughout the Cosmos.

The harmony, loyalty, transparency, vulnerability, humility (yes, humility!), holiness, oneness and distinction between our Masters is a continuous Source of awe, wonder and joy! Even more wonderful is the fact that Their Transcendent LOVE for Each Other is what powers every other healthy relationship--not just in the world to come, but in the present world as well...whether It is acknowledged or not.

GOD created the human family with the intent of filling its members with the SAME FULLNESS His Divine Family enjoys; since the advent of sin, however, humans have conspired with demons to so darken that which was designed to be glorious that the Presence of Divinity would be forced out. In an Act of redemption GOD was compelled to redefine the concept of family so that it is no longer centered around a man and woman but centered in GOD The Father of spirits (Matthew 23:8-10). Since every saved soul would be sovereignly born of GOD (John 1:13), each saved soul would therefore have GOD as his / her Father, transforming his / her identity into a son of GOD...eliminating the abuse of sex and gender altogether (Matthew 22:30).

The Bond of the indwelling Holy Spirit of GOD, though it may seem ever so fragile and delicate, is stronger than diamond. That Bond ties us inexorably to The Father of Christ as well as to each other. For this reason, our loyalty and commitment to our fellow believers MUST take precedence over unsaved family and friends (Luke 9:59,60).

Once again: the kingdoms of Heavenly Life and Earthly Death are completely incompatible with each other; you must choose which kingdom will hold your eternal citizenship.

In Part Nineteen we will see how Christ's Fifth Word addresses the "megachurch," "prosperity gospel" and philosophy shoppers considering adoption of the "good parts" of Christianity.
