You Love Me, But You Don't Know Who I Am
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You love me, but you don’t know who I am. Those are the words God spoke to Michael several years ago and it took him on a journey into measureless love, grace, and union with an always good, never leaving, no distance or separation, Triune God. With grace and joy the conversation dove into the two greatest lies on the planet, Penal Substitution and Eternal Conscious Torment.

Quotes:

“You love me, but you don’t know who I am.”

“The cross is an unveiling of the nature of the true God as radically forgiving, co-suffering, other giving love…and an unveiling of His love for humanity and our value and worth…”

“You were not joined to God at the cross, you were joined to God in Mary’s womb”

“In the incarnation, humanity and divinity are joined as one, eternally.”

“’God, what about evil people?’ I asked. God answered my question with a question, ‘Is my name not Abba?’

“Once I understood the incarnation (it raised the question), ‘Is God going to destroy His own image?”

“He is destroying things in His fire but it most certainly isn’t people, nor is it to inflict punishment, He is destroying that which destroys us.”
