Yeshua’s Father

What of Yeshua’s relationship with His Father.  As with all things regarding Yeshua we can see a perfect relationship between Father and Son.  As a young boy Yeshua talked of being in his Father’s house.  He sought out God’s presence even as a young boy.  He acknowledged that He alone really knew God, that all things have been committed to Him by the Father.  He would treat everyone justly, acknowledging or disowning each to His Father as they did to him. (1)  He had great confidence in His Father’s attention and support, “Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?” (2)  Yeshua saw every good thing as coming from His Father and the Father was his focus.  “For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.” (3)  Yeshua knew all that His Father was doing and that He was sent by the Father. (4)  Yeshua had a clear mission from the Father that was founded in love. (5) Yeshua’s mission was to save a people for God and Yeshua knew The Father would accomplish His will.  “My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.  I and the Father are one.” (6)

Yeshua had been sent to bring believers into unity with Him and the Father.  “On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.  Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me.  The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.” (7)  Here is perhaps one of the greatest promise in the Bible, “The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.” (8)  It was not enough for Yeshua to be one with the Father, He was obedient to death on the cross so that every believer would be one together in the Family of God.  “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.” (9)  Even in this perfect relationship between Father and Son there is love for the children of God, humans whom God chose before the foundation of the universe to live together in Heaven and perfect unity.
