Memory Verse: James 4 vs 8
Intimacy is a closeness that comes as a result of togetherness that might have evolved. Intimacy is what create a relationship and cement a partnership between two or more entities. Intimacy with the Father is a stage of closeness every Man must attain. Even our Lord Jesus Christ like to use the word Father in so many cases because there is an intimacy between Him and the father. That Father and son association is what Christ has come to cement between Us and Our Father.
Intimacy is what bring about oneness . This is the highest level of togetherness that can come between Man and God. Intimacy is a binder that every relationship should have for longetivity. Beckoning on the father continuously is a way to help to stimulate Intimacy. Intimacy with the Father is a magnetic influences the spiritual impulses of life.
John 17 vs 20-23 " I do not pray for these alone but also those who will believe in Me through their word. The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and love them as you loved me" .
The familiarity of Man with God is accounted based on the number of times he has submitted to Intimacy with the Father. Intimacy always create an atmosphere of worship, a point of meeting and seeking, a landmark of togetherness to share link of infuence. The segregation of influence is best felt at the level at which an intimacy has being centered. The Intimacy is not with any man, not with a group of people.
Originally from Creation, the first gathering of Intimacy came between Man and God. It is a togetherness that God originally approved after creation to enrich and bless Man. The communication system in intimacy with the father are in diverse ways and beyound Measures Man has to mastered them.
Gen 1 vs 26 " Then God said Let Us make man in Our own image, according to Our Likeness, let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air , and over the cattle over all the earth and over every creeping things that creep on earth. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God . He created them" .
The Intimacy with Father was established by God and not by Men. We came to the light of this intimacy because the Father showed up this path way. The intimacy is what bring out closer to the Father, he want us at all times . A model of intimacy was created in the garden of Eden.
There is a meeting place that Intimacy showcase; a place of bethel with the Father. It is a place of purpose for Men. Intimacy should be renewed and continuous, it is a process that is fabricated on the Agenda of what man need. The Father is waiting day by day to see who want this intimacy with Him; he find Men and use Men at the junction of intimacy. The compendium of letterings is made on Men with the Intimacy with the father, it is a place of transfer from the heavenliess. The trouble with many people is that they want God to come and meet them evrytime at their looming point.
James 4 vs 8 " Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double- minded" . Their is a clause of Intimacy that Men need to draw God first before He reveal things to us. There are certain things that God may not reveal to you in the open or in a gathering but at the epic center of your Intimacy with the Father. You should spent lucrative time at your intimacy with the father. There is no other father to seek the father privately than Intimacy. Your intimacy with the father is your personal office with the Father that is only you have access to draw things there.
Intimacy with the Father requires spiritual communication gadgets you must have installed to continue your connection with the Father. Intimacy with the Father is a place of staying and it entails hearing, listening , sitting and waiting for the Father. Intimacy with the Father is a level in the spiritual realm that you must be before He arrives.
The Four communication system gadgets of Intimacy, they are:
1. Talkings of God
2. Footstep of God
3. Lettering of the Father.
4. Book of Revelation
1. Talkings of God:
To have Intimacy with the Father, you must first master the Talkings of the father. He call Men by His talkings, he draw Men by His talkings but how many can hear him talk. Intimacy is state of togetherness that bring about the solemn assembly of two parties (Father and Men). There is a need for Men to understand the Talkings of the Father during intimacy. The Father utters instructions , lay down principles for the benefit of His children. Can God talk to you with the level of closeness you have with him?. One of the sign that a Man has reached a level of intimacy is when he is able to hear the Talkings of God, you have mastered how he talk because often you relate with him.
Jeremiah 33:3 " Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.". Having intimacy with Father deals with calling unto God for him to release his Talkings. The Father release great and hidden things through his Talkings. It is a communication gadget of intimacy that any Man that want this mystery must listen to hear the talkings of the father. The closer you're to the Father; the more he reveal great and Mighty things to you.
There are level of Talkings of God, he talks openly to a generation and there are certain things he Reveal during the course of intimacy. The mastering of the Talkings of God shed more stability in your intimacy with the father. The together with the father has been bought with a price; a huge pay they make you deserve a listening hear from the father. Intimacy is a key many Christian are looking for; many secrets men are looking for are waiting for them at the course of intimacy. Your Intimacy with the Father is a sacred separation that move God to talk.
Job 33 vs 14-17 "For God mag speak in one way, or in another yet man does not perceive it. In a dream ,in a vision of the night when deep sleep falls upon men while slumbering on their beds ; then He opens the ears of me and seals their instruction. In order to turn man from his deed and conceal pride from man". Intimacy with the father help Man a lot; it is a way of furnishing man for the right course. Intimacy do the Talkings of God and with this God reveal Man greatest secret. The episode of the secrets are like the building blocks in building Men.
Intimacy with the Father help Men because God himself open their ears and seal instructions, to turn them from their deeds and conceal pride from Man. Intimcay with the father vomit pride from Men. The intimacy with the father cements a togetherness to make Man see God in another dimension and one of the first dimension is the Talkings of God. It is a communication gadget that create transfer and Men need to understand this.
Intimacy with the father is a glue that plaster Men to God. Intimacy has a way of making God speak and Men. The purspose is for Man to hear the Talkings of God alone but to talk to the father as a response. The communication gadget is mastered during the stay for intimacy. This close familiarity and affinity give men things they could have even prayed for. You can't say you want intimacy with your earthly father without mastering how he talks and move; there is an organogram on how he distribute that you have mastered. We are not having intimacy so that he know that we are there with him; he want us closer to dispense things easier to us. Many prolonged answers to prayer is a result of the gap that still loom between us and the father .When the father want to dispense and do some talkings; he look within to see who is closer to him, he do the talkings to see who respond to it. Intimacy legislate a transaction that profit men.
1 John 1 vs 3 "That which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ" . One the real proof that a man has understood intimacy is when he submitted to the formular of fellowship. The Talkings of God are done in fellowship but our idea of fellowship is only openly fellowship. There is what we call personal fellowship with the father; and it is at this point that intimacy is confine and established. The talmigs at times may not be done at the open fellowship, this gadget may be active at close fellowship with the father.
2. Footstep of God:
This close and mutual association is capitalized on how often we see the footsteps of God. How often does a father walk with you, inside you, around you. It is enough to have intimacy and hear what he says alone; from where is he speaking from and how close is he to me. The intimacy that God had with Man at created moved God to move in the garden without even seeing Men. He walked in the cool of the day an asked Man where art thou. That the footstep of God searches Men for intimacy. This is a great mystery, where can I be at a point in time that the footstep of God will keep searching for me for intimacy. How can I be that careless and miserable not to understand this footstep and step out to see God. That the footstep of God can be search engine and gadget to create intimacy with Men.
Gen 3 vs 8 "And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day. And Adam and his wife his themselves from the presence of the Lord among the trees of the garden". The sound of Lord God created a footstep in the garden and it started searching for Men . The Footstep of the Mighty God is force that draw God closer to Men in registering an intimacy with Men. During the course of intimacy Man can decide to run away from the father as a result of an action, the walkings of God guided on His footstep tend to locate Men in order to re establish the divine connection.
Footstep of God as a gadget of intimacy can come in forms and appearance to Man. Intimacy with the father can occur on the account of fire, lightening, dove, sound to represent the footstep of God. It is a system that vetos the footprint of God and it is on this account that Intimacy with the Father is registered. Moses encountered God with a burning bush, Saul encounterd God with a light shone from heaven . The footstep of God through this burning bush and light guided this Men of God to their destinations. The intimacy with the Father crave a pathway to accomplish certain destines and without the encounter of the footstep of God man cannot move .
Act 9 vs 3-4 "And as he journeyed he came near Damascus and suddenly a light shine around him from heaven . Then he fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, Saul ,Saul why are you persecuting Me ?. In solidifying intimacy God doesn't most time walk to Men to see Him but he create a path way that Man can't resist . A heart far away from God can be called back to light of the gospel by God showing His footstep. The footstep of God in affirming intimacy are always available for Men but Most Men doesn't respond to the path to see God .
Intimacy with the Father is a binder that must be cemented on number of times Man see the footstep of God. Each time you see this sign ,it means God himself is calling for a special assignment and this can b carried our based on the Intimacy you have with Him.Show me a Man that has strong intimacy with the father and I show you Man that have mastered the footstep of God. Intimacy come with a fellowship and footsteps need to be registered.
Psalm 53 vs 2 " God looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God. ". The footstep of God can be accounted on how He look to see who is ready fro Intimacy with him. It is a communication gadget to see Man who can form a solemn assembly with Him. The intimacy he want to have with us make him to find a man who truly understand this footsteps and seek His face. Your intimacy deals with seeking. To communicate with God in the ratio of His intimacy; you really need to master the footstep and how he so call you. For Every child understand the footstep of His father..
3. Lettering Of the Father :
The intimacy wit the father vetos alos on the amount of lettering that has transpired between you and your father. God have intimacy with Men by transferring things to them, He bestows things in their life that make them come for more. Its during the course of intimacy that some informations are released through lettering to the son. It is not enough for a Man to just see God but to understand the lettering of the Father. The more you master this lettering, the more you understand the Father in dimensions.
2 Corinthians 10:9-11 for I do not wish to seem as if I would terrify you by my letters. For they say, “His letters are weighty and strong, but his personal presence is unimpressive and his speech contemptible.” Let such a person consider this, that what we are in word by letters when absent, such persons we are also in deed when present.
I encountered a shift during the period of lockdown; I was directed to my wardrobe and the spirit told me that " see how useless your fine clothes are for months. You want them on you every time but who can help you to put it on now. I later got to know that there are seasons for things, season to even abandon the best vessels and use the old". There are certain times God want to show us great mystery, but aware failure to create intimacy hasn't let him manifest in you
One of the most misunderstood gadget of God during intimacy is the lettering of God. The lettering of God has been sent through his word to bless you. The Mighty father have intimacy with Men by passing his words though his lettering. Th lettering of God to Men come in form of patterns to stimulate the relationship between God and Men; it is a binder that bring the mind of God to men during the course of intimacy. Intimacy with the father requires you understanding the lettering of God to your life; the sent word of God to you and how well you visualize in this leterring .
Intimacy with Father is a stripper that pull Men closer to the Father, this moves God by letting him send down some designed works in form of letterings, this may come from the Word of the Father, through revelation, through a vision. This is the part of the intimacy that is self-captured and self used. The lettering God has placed on a Mans life may not work another Man in the same domain. We don't know God alone by His name , he write to us and we write to Him in return to bless us . More often God use men to write lettering for other Men; he Reveal the secret of the intimacy in His leterring .
Exodus 24 vs 12-13 " Then the Lord said to Moses, "Come up to Me on the mountain and be there; and I will give you tablets of stone, and the law and commandments which I have written ,that you may teach them. So Moses arose with his assistant Joshua and Moses went up to the mountain of God ". God have to establish an Intimacy with His people by also given them the lettering of words; an intimacy that come with a convenat of obedient. The fortitude of man rest on the amount of this lettering he can discern. It is a communicating system in intimacy from the father to the son . Your intimacy with the father cannot be well register we with your father in you don't communicate to him. During the course of intimacy, the Father want to reveal so many things to you , and by His lettering to you more of the secrets are revealed to you.
4. Book of Revelation :
The book of Revelation is one of the most misunderstood and, to some, one of the most confusing and bewildering books of the Bible. But, the book of Revelation may be largely understood by those who have ‘ears to hear’ and ‘eyes to see'. The Father have intimacy with His sons by giving them the book of revelation. It is not a book you can just read and just go away from the father. This revelation of this book is given at the course of intimacy.
The book of revelation is a communication gadget that can only be given by Father to son. He show us eternal secrets and mysteries through this book of wisdom. Unless you move closer to the father and hear the interpretation from the father you can adhere to the words. God communicate to Men through revelations, he meet men through revelations and establish His stay through revelations of His word.
Revelations 3 vs 20 " Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and open the door. I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me ". Jesus is speaking to the Church at Laodicea; the church that’s lukewarm. Maybe the reason that Jesus is outside knocking on the door of this church is because He’s not in that church nor is He a part of that church. He is knocking so they’ll let Him in. Apparently this door can only be opened from the inside. They must take the initiative and open the door for Jesus because He will never force Himself on anyone. They must let Him in and only then will He will eat with them and have fellowship with them.
The intimacy with the father enables man to the book of revelations that yield Man for the eternal glory. It is on the course of intimacy that this mystery of this book is made known unto Men. The closeness to the father doesn't just allow God to bless us alone but to enrich with great mystery of heavens. The book of revelation enables Man to have connection with heaven signals and doings. Men that doesn't draw closer to their father are not shown this great mystery of the Kingdom. A father bless his sons on the affirnity they have with Him; He is likely to show more revelations on the account of intimacy they both have.
The Book of Revelation brings a blessing and a warning. It brings bad news but it also brings good news. God says that for everyone who reads this book will be blessed but there is no greater blessing than by repenting and believing in Jesus. The highest level of intimacy Man can reach with God is when show Men book of revelations coupled with the interpretation.
The eternal journey is made manifested in the book of revelations.
Revelation 1:1 “The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants the things that must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John.” More revelation of Christ is revealed through this book of revelation. What you really need is intimacy with the mighty father; and discussions are made based on this communication gadget with the father.
Intimacy with the Father birth so many things. It has established some blessings for the benefit of man. Categorically there are four entities that intimacy birth
1. Spirit of Adoption
2. Everlasting Love
3. Atmosphere of Fellowship
4. His presence
1. Spirit of Adoption :
Intimacy with the father cement the spirit of Adoption God promised us . Once we were strangers, but Our Lord Jesus Christ has come to draw us closer to the father. Christ came to reammend our closeness with the father, he paid the price for the intimacy and by this we have license to be called sons and daughters. Intimacy with the father has been what brought about spirit of Adoption. Sons should not feel like a stranger again in relating to their fathers because now they can be one . We have been adopted with a huge price , what then shall it profit a son that been bought with a price to loose his place of intimacy. We need to make the father feel happy by coming to cement thus relationship. Intimacy with the father didn't just have to come to us to talk to the father like strangers , but by it we can call him Abba Father.
Roman 8 vs 15 "For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father". Strangers, slaves and sinners are those that suppose to inhabit fear and agony. Once you have given your life to Christ, immediately you have the key to the spirit of Adoption, it is now left for you to maximize your spirit of Adoption by constant intimacy with the Father. Stipulate a togetherness with your father , He want you every time and he desire your togetherness. It has been what Intimacy has come to offer us a child of God. Intimacy with the Father birth this reality of Spirit of Adoption and by all means we should have this too.
2 Corinthians 6 vs 18 "And, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” The mighty God is ready to form a Father tobson relationship to has many that is ready to receive to be adopted. The spirit of Adoption tend to make us one with the father in all sphere. The Father has laid down a promise for us that seek intimacy with Him. We would not only be a Partaker of His presence but also inherit a spirit of Adoption to be called His sons and daughters.
Our Lord Jesus Christ prayed this prayer for his disciples, For the Father to make them one in Him . John 17 vs 20-21 " I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will belive in Me through their word, that they all may be one as You Father are in Me and I in You ; that they also be one in Us , that the world may believe that You sent Me " . Many has gone to the place of intimacy behaving as a stranger and they tend to receive things as a stranger. We need to register our intimacy based on the foundation that we have bought with a huge price and we need to master this with the Spirit of Adoption that the Father promised us. Our Lord Jesus Christ specifically prayed for His disciples to be in the Father as He has also been in Him. The spirit of adoption makes you to reiside beyond limitations in your father domain. It free your mind and make you ask things from Him.
2. Everlasting Love:
The Father highly want this intimacy and that's one of the reason shy he has loved us with an everlasting love from beginning. The intimacy with Father birth a special kind of love from bthe father and has placed us above all things because of this love. God love all men like a Father love all his children. This string of affection make us always acceptable in the hands of God when ever we near him .
1 John 3 vs 1 "See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did notknow him. " . On the reason why this intimacy with the Father remain intact is as a result of the Everlasting love he has shown us.
He shown us this love to be called children, that we may not perish by giving His only son, that we may reignite our relationship with Him. So why won't I take the intimacy with the Father so serious. The Father want every of His child to realize this by the reason of the intimacy he desire with them. Intimacy birth everlasting love, he placed him a little above creatures he created and gave Him alone His image.
Jeremiah 31 vs 3 "The LORD appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. " The father convex this Love as an everlasting and unshaking love. He desire an everlasting intimacy with us too in our quest to know him. The birth of this everlasting love is beyond Man understanding because he has loved us more than Himself. The everlasting love has made the Father to always accept is when ever we come to His presence , he desire our togetherness with Him . Moving closer to the father has been the issue from creation; we need to move closer to him for he had made necessary arrangements for our stay with Him. Intimacy with the father has given a room for this everlasting love and we can fully wallow in this reality when we move closer to Him. It is when a son move closer to His father that he knows the level of love He has for him. Come and taste the version of this everlasting love that even the world can not even give you.
Isaiah 54 vs 8 " In overflowing anger for a moment I hid my face from you, but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you,” says the LORD, your Redeemer. The intimacy with the Father should always be our priority, even though in overflowing anger for a moment he would have compassion over us and seek all men to come yo His presence. The point of intimacy most times is not a place to rebuke us but to show us the type of compassion the father has for us. Let us crave for this intimacy beyond our quest for things; some brethren seek His face for the things they need. The question is , will you still walk us to God and form a relationship with Him when we don't need things. He value the intimacy everytime and every moment; so therefore let us make ourselves available for Him everytime we have the opportunity to do so.
Luke 15 vs 18-20 " I will rise and go to my father, and will say to him. " Father , I have sinned against heaven and before you. And I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servant. And he rose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him ". The prodigal son, the lost son or the son that abused a grace like a perfect example of a child that lost intimacy with His father. The quest for things and properties made him despise the great love the father has for him. Despite all, his far appearance still gave the Father a compassion over him because of the great love the Father has for him. This is exactly the type of love that intimacy has birth for us from the father. Just at a glance of coming to seek Him from apart, He would come to support us with a great affection. The intimacy with the father should be beyound our desire for things because The consant love is better than life itself.
Psalm 63:3 " Your constant love is better than life itself, avs so I will praise you ". The beauty of the intimacy is the everlasting love he has bestowed on us.
3. Atmosphere of worship :
Is only at the place of Intimacy that we can derive an atmosphere of worship; unless you love closer to him you can't worship him. There is always an environment and worship, a domain system where God direct influence can be felt. A worshipers in this reality is not someone that know how to sing beautiful songs that has meaning lyrics but someone that understand the pattern of hosting God. Intimacy with the father has birth this reality for us; Our Lord Jesus Christ has drawn us closer to the father to let us know we can worship him as He does too. The Atomsphere are reserved for those that understand this togetheeness with the father. There is no point in worship without hosting God, there is no way we can have intimacy with Him without dwelling in His atmosphere. During the course of intimacy, many are lost worshiping God in this atmosphere.
John 4 vs 24 "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth" . The way to worship God is in Spirit and the way to create this atmosphere is therefore in the spirit. Intimacy is not just about two bodies coming in contact but a body seeing another in Himself . Can you worship God alone?. Can you worship him without base guitar or xylophone ?. We need to master this atmosphere of worship during our course of intimacy. More of His power is shown during this atomsphere of worship. The intimacy with the father has birth us this atmosphere and even devil itself can not step into this domain. It is a deep place in the spirit where we talk to God. A man cannot boost of His intimacy with the Father without an atmosphere of worship.
The Atmosphere of worship is cordinated by the Holy spirit, supervised by God's own spirit. There is no level of worship can can arise at the point of intimacy with our the holy spirit. The course of intimacy has birth us reality of worship in a super saturated atmosphere. We are hereby the partaker of this fellowship and the Spirit of God himself take us to the reality of the father. Benny Hin called him the unlimited version of Jesus Christ , and without him no atmosphere of worship is created. Our intimacy with the father is to bring us to the efficiency of this atmosphere and make him talk to the father. Your togetherness with the Father would open you to the door of atmosphere and then you see the Holy spirit in Manifestation.
2 Corinthians 13 vs 14 " The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God and the communion of the Holy spirit be with you all " . The Father convet love to us, Our Lord Jesus Christ convet grace to us but in this kingdom the koinonia of the Holy spirit, the union is what the Spirit has cone to give us. We walk in this atmosphere, dwell in this atmosphere and relate in this atmosphere. Intimacy with the Father most have taken us father to get to this atmosphere of worship. Worshipping God entails room in this Kingdom, the more you worship him the more you enter more rooms in the spirit. A core way of forming a recgnized closenss with the Father. There are periods in the spirit realm that you don't go down to pray some prayer but your presence at the atmosphere of worship enables some unrequested prayers to be answered.
Passionately man desire this atmosphere of worship, they don't even want to step out of it once they are there but the first key to open this reality is intimacy with the Father. In the experience of the fellowship that Men convey this atmosphere of worship
Psalm 143 vs 6 " I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land." This state bring thrust upon Man, they want to be filled at all cost and its the Father that has the living water he do give them. Your arrival at this point of worship is the the level at which you want to be filled to the brim.
4. His presence :
Intimacy with the Father has given us license you see His presence. For a man need to be present to see the presence of the father.It a vast form of the Father Himself to convey His presence to us, and He only show Himself only at the point of intimacy with Him. His presence ushers lights, paths way, miracles, keys and many more. There is no man that experience His presence and remain the same.
Acts 3:20-21 "That times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus, whom heaven must receive until the time for restoring all the things about which God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets long ago." The presence of God offer us a dimension that we can't describe. The time of refreshing Men at the point of intimacy come from the presence of the Lord. There are certain things His presence give us , more than what we even ask for.
Intimacy with the Father has given us liberty to enter His presence, we see him in His Mighty power. It is a cosmos of God that is opened to those that is close to him. The more you get acquitted with the father, the more you enter His presence. The presence of God is not necessarily the church building but the activation of His revelance in the gathering of saints. The presence of God is a place in the spirit that intimacy pass you into as you dwell with Him . There is no way you enter His presence and remain the same. There is a great deposit that come from His presence.
Psalm 16:11 " You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore ". Intimacy with the Father birth this path of life to Men, it is in the presence of the Lord that there is Joy. This presence does not bring happiness because of something good that happened to you. This presence evolve an atmosphere of Joy like a river that make man marvel of the type of Father they serve.
There are Men in His presence, there are men outside His presence. The job of intimacy is to bring us to a point where we see His presence. This is realm of the spirit that Our Lord Jesus Christ dwell in to say the Father is in me and I am in the Father. A reality that when a man stand praying , fellowship see His presence come like a wind rushing upon men. It is only the presence of God that bring about divine transformation of Men.
Psalm 139:7 " Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence ". The psalmist become roared in the spirit and asked the Father where can I go from your spirit, where shall I flee from your presence?. The only conveyer of this presence is the Spirit of God . Intimacy with the Father has given Men the license to this wallowing of this presence. The presence is a defined state of God , a saturated atmosphere of God that is given to Men that understand the ethics of seeing Him. When you have cone to the place of intimacy, you have to still wait for the presence of God. The presence of God is God own Spirit at work, a working power of the Spirit of truth.
Intimacy with the Father is compulsory association that every child of God must form with the Father if he/she want to move far in this Kingdom. Intimacy is a stripper and it is what that bring about connection of the heavenlies to Man. The familiarity Man need to have should be limited in just knowing the Father but to have an integral closeness with the Father. Intimacy with the Father should always be what we desire, what we thirst for and our passion that we always crave for.
John 15:4-6 " Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. ".
Our Lord Jesus Christ was telling his disciples to always abide in Him, stay in Him and not for once leave him. The main reason why Christ said this was because Intimacy birth good fruit, and without this intimacy can't show forth fruit. We have so many Christian that live a futile life just as a result that they didn't abide fully in the Father. We can not continue to say we serve the father without showing fruit in our lives. Our Lord Jesus Christ must have come to the epic center of the life a Christian and by this Man can bear more fruit. Intimacy is a tool to bear fruit in this Kingdom, is a spiritual gadget to access many things in this Kingdom. I believe by now you must have aligned yourself to see if you've trulky form partnership with the Father.
Isaiah 55:6 “Seek the LORD while he may be found; call upon him while he is near;. Prophet Isaiah make this proclamation for us to seek the Lord while he may be found. Draw nearer to him as he show you great mystery in the spirit. Your intimacy with the Father matters a lot you in this journey of faith.
