It is so strong that, if we take a closer look, David was not called son; instead he was called “a man after God’s own heart”.
Abraham heard the voice of God three times when he was about to make a sacrifice, but He did not call him son.
Moses had a revelation from God when he saw the burning bush, but he was not called son.
They and many other heroes of faith were all servants of God. They feared Him and saw great wonders, but when the subject of faith comes to Jesus, the story changes.
God quickly says: “This is my beloved Son”. Matthew 3:17
Why? Because the Holy Spirit has God’s own DNA, and therefore those who have it are able to be Sons/Daughters of God.
And there is more…
I do not remember reading that the men who came before Jesus called God by “Father”.
They said, “My God”, “God” or “Lord of Hosts”.
Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. Roman 8:9 NKJV
IF YOU DIDN’T KNOW, NOW YOU KNOW =D
