118. II. ALSO THAT THE LORD IS CALLED FATHER, AND THE CHURCH MOTHER. That the Lord is called Father is seen from these passages:
Unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given, and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, God, FATHER OF ETERNITY, Prince of Peace. Isa. 9:6.
Thou, O JEHOVAH, ART OUR FATHER; REDEEMER FROM ETERNITY is Thy name. Isa. 63:16.
Jesus said, He that seeth Me seeth the FATHER that sent Me. John 12:44, 45.
If ye had known me, ye should have known my FATHER also; and from henceforth ye have known Him, and have seen Him. John 14:7.
Philip saith, Show us the FATHER. Jesus saith unto him, He that hath seen Me hath seen the FATHER. How sayest thou then, Show us the FATHER? John 14:8, 9.
Jesus said, THE FATHER AND I are one. John 10:30.
All things whatsoever the FATHER hath are MINE. John 16:15; 17:10.
THE FATHER IS IN ME, and I IN THE FATHER. John 10:38; 14:10, 11, 20.
That the Lord and His Father are one as soul and body are one; that God the Father descended from heaven and assumed the Human to redeem and save men; and that His Human is what is called the Son sent into the world, is fully shown in THE APOCALYPSE REVEALED.
