THE HEART OF THE FATHER

At Heart of the Father Ministries our primary goal and purpose is to reveal our Father God’s unconditional, unfathomable, eternal and most of all His personal love for each and every one of His children. To put it another way, we desire to teach and to prove from scripture who He really is, His true nature, and that His heart is that of a father. He is the most wonderful, compassionate, merciful, and gracious father that you could ever imagine. In fact, He is far, far more in every one of these ways than you and I could ever even begin to imagine. I realize even now as I begin to write this what a huge undertaking, what a large responsibility this task entails. I could teach, preach and write about our Abba’s heart and never begin to cover the basics, much less make it clear for others if not for the indwelling presence and guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is on Him whom I will ever rely for the knowledge and understanding to present in a meaningful way that which He wants to make manifest to His children.  

One of the main things that grieve my heart is the blame that our Father receives for almost everything bad that happens in this world and to us individually. Whether it is the untimely death of a loved one or a tragedy that affects many, the question that arises whether it is verbalized or not, is why did God allow this to happen? Of course this is only slightly better than an actual insinuation that God actually caused it to happen through an act of His judgment. The next logical step with this line of reasoning then becomes “I’m mad at God” or “There is no way I will believe in or worship a God who would do such a thing”. These questions and beliefs come from either ignorance or just plain wrong teaching and are present both in the secular world and within Christian circles. This problem is not by any means a modern one but has been present since the fall of Adam and was especially prevalent at the time of Jesus. Jesus was THE revelation of the Father’s heart and a primary purpose of His mission was to reveal the Father to mankind and His heart for them. (I hope to be able to discuss both of these topics in future pages.) However, our Savior, the greatest teacher of all time, had those whom He couldn’t get to receive His teaching on the Father. Only hours before His passion began, He spoke to His disciples whom He had just called His friends and forewarned them about the world hating and persecuting them just as they had done to Him. Jesus then gave them the reason as to why this would continue to happen. “But all these things they will do to you for my name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.” (John 15:21 emphasis mine)  

Does it not go without saying that bad things can and will happen when we do not know our Father God? We long to reach His children in Haiti and throughout the world with the true knowledge of Him as revealed in His Word and by His Spirit.
