I And My Father Are One; As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father

My Father and I are One

“I and my Father are One”

I spent a bit of time this last week having some Bible discussions in the hospital, one particular case was where I was talking to an RN and she talked about the Trinity and how she believes the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost are all Three the same being, or entity. This always amazed me the Trinity people vs the Oneness people because they essentially believe the same, yet according to most of them, they would argue they believe the opposite. Now whether you believe all three are one or whether you believe one is all three, the arguments are cutting the hairs pretty thinly.

The way I believe and most people I’ve ever been in church with believe the simple truth with Jesus himself admonished people not to get away from the simplicity that is in Christ Jesus. The Bible plainly says there are two in the Godhead. God the Father and Christ Jesus the Son. The Holy Ghost is the Life, Spirit and Love of the Father that Christ Jesus must baptize everyone with for them to be born-again. Born-again, given a new life, given a new spirit and thereby given a new love that comes from the Father, through the Son. No one cometh to the Father, but by me.

The Bible plainly says: God is the head of Christ, Christ is the head of man, and man is the head of the woman. Putting aside mane being the head of the woman for the point of this piece I am writing. God i.e. the Father, being the head of Christ Jesus the Son. Christ Jesus the Son being the head of man. That puts two in the Godhead, not three, man is not a god, nor is man the Prince of Peace, nor is man the Everlasting Father, Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God!

In another example it talks of the woman following the man as the man follows Christ Jesus’ example, words, etc. When it talks of I and my Father being “One”, that is speaking of heart, mind, ability, nature, spirit, love, work, etc.

For example; My mother and father have two children, my brother and I. My brother, he has mainly the characteristics of our mother, they do not take anything from anyone, and will jump right back at anyone who dares cross them or those they care for. I on the other hand have more of the characteristics of our father, we are more forgiving, laid back and yielding. My father has done HVAC work practically his whole life, he had a large HVAC business in the Tulsa / Broken Arrow area for many years. Our parents because of the distance from where we live, mom being secretary / bookkeeper of the business for dad, took my brother and I out of public school when I, myself was twelve years old. My brother and I went to work part time for dad and they enrolled us in homeschool so that we could  also do our studies and fulfill their obligations to educate us.

My brother disliked HVAC immensely and eventually he parted ways with the business and finally found his calling as a heavy equipment operator and quarry man.

Personally, I loved working for my father, and I have spent most of my life doing the same work as he. This is not the only area though where “I and my Father are One” You watch our actions in Church for instance, the way we move, clap, and countless other things, the sound of our voices as we sing, you can easily mistake my voice for his. Again; “I and my Father are One” There are many other character traits, actions, words, ideals, the way we see various and numerous things, issues, etc. Again; “I and my Father are One”

You get to know the times and various other things concerning our sleeping habits. Again; “I and my Father are One”

You get to know our wives, even our wives are one like the other in countless ways. Again; “I and my Father are one”  You get to know us by our demeanor, our silences, our utterings, our attentions. Again; “I and my Father are One”. You look even at the type of television shows, sports, etc. we watch. Again; “I and my Father are One”

No, my Father and I are not the same person, nor are we exactly alike in every aspect of our thinking, hearts, minds, lives. There are many small, insignificant and minor differences between my Father and I. However, in every point that counts, that goes to make up a mans character, sense of duty, motivations that drive us, our passions, etc. Yes! I and my Father are indeed “One”!

She

Dedicated to the girl who has always occupied my heart! My love, my life, my desire, I love you baby! I’ve been thinking of writing this one for a while!

She makes me laugh more in a few months than I have almost my whole life.
She lights up the room for me when she enters.
She can calm me when I am in a rage, and
She can makes me smile, when all I want to be is mad.
She makes me think of things in ways I never have.
When all the world is in turmoil around us,
She can help me make sense of it,
and see the workings of the Lord in it.
She can make me feel love,
Even when I am angry at the world!

She makes me smile just by thinking of her,
She can calm my entire being with just a touch.
She puts up with me when I play dirty little ornery tricks on her, a lot!
She laughs with me at those same tricks.
She doesn’t know it, but, she doesn’t have to speak a word, give a look, or even a touch,
to make me love her more everyday.
Just being herself and I think of all the little ways she tries to please me.
She makes my heart grow just by thinking of her.

She is the most beautiful girl I have ever known,
She always held this distinction in my eyes.
She lets me know she loves me with a look, a touch, a sigh,
She does it in so many little ways, I cannot describe.
She is truly amazing, how even the little things that irritate me,
They make me laugh and love her all the more.
She has earned my deepest respect and my sacred trust!
She has brought out things in me, that no one else ever could.
She brings out a tenderness in my heart, that I thought was reserved only for the Lord.

She is the standard which every other girl has ever been held to.
She is the balance by which all other girls were weighed.
She is the ruler by which all others were measured.

She contrasts me and compliments me, in ways that can only be described as God’s perfect union.
She is not perfect, yet it is those imperfections, that make me, love her all the more greatly.
Those imperfections were put there by the hand of the Master, for He knew.
She is my soulmate, my lifelong love, my heart of hearts.
She is everything that I ever wanted in a woman,
She is that and so much more.

When God made her, He knew more about what I wanted, than I myself did.
For she never ceases to surprise me with how much He made her for me.
She does it just by being herself,
She doesn’t even know it,
Yet with each new thing I learn about her,
Satisfies longings, desires that I never even knew were in me.
She was truly made by God for me and I for she.

I couldn’t help but love her,
For loving her, is why I was made.
She makes me happier than I ever thought it possible to be.
Her smile always transforms, and improves my day.
She is my sunshine when all is gray.
She truly is my beautiful, precious and delicate flower.
The most beautiful, precious and delicate flower I have ever had in my hands!
I love you baby, I hope this gives you a smile.
Yours is worth more than a million bucks!

I love you truly, unconditionally, unwavering, undaunted, with all my heart, my being, for all time!

I can only thank God the father for His love, and Jesus Christ His son, for his hand in our lives. Thank God we finally found what we were looking for, and it was each other!
