I am going to stop saying "I am the world's worst blogger." And then maybe I will stop being it. :-)

In my post of May 4, I didn't complete telling what happened to me on April 28. After I had that encounter with the Lord that humbled me with realization that Jesus experienced separation from the Father so I/you/we could experience His Presence, something else happened.

I cried out "My God, my God - why have you adopted me?" And His response was "I adopted you BACK."

And I could see it - how the DNA and genetic code for each of us was originally in Adam and we were the Father's family and He loved us before we came into the world. But the true us's were kidnapped through the sin of our first parents and we were born perverted from who we were originally designed to be.

But now we are adopted back by the loving Father, cleaned up by the blood of Jesus, baptized in the Love of the Father through His Word and the Holy Spirit. We are beloved children of God. As I heard last weekend from a preacher, "When you believe in Jesus, you are saved. When you realize that Jesus believes in you, you are transformed." Jesus died to bring His brothers and sisters back to our Father. And one wonderful prophecy is that He shall see the fruit of the travail of His soul and be satisfied. (Isaiah 53: 11) Satisfy Jesus by receiving the knowledge of the Father's individual, unending, overwhelming love for you!

I in them and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou has sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.  John 17:23
