Knowing And Doing God’s Will.

“For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.” Matthew 12:50.

Will, thelema  Strong’s #2307.  It is used objectively of that which is:

  • willed, Matthew 18:14. “Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should parish.”
  • Designed,  Luke 12:47. “And that servant who knew his master’s will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.”
  • Desired, John 5:30. “I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me.”

Thelema is used subjectively of the emotion of being desirous:

  • Luke 23:25. And he released to them the one they requested, who for rebellion and murder had been thrown into prison; but he delivered Jesus to their will.
  • John 1:13. Who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
  • 1 Peter 3:17. For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for evil.

Thelema (Will) stresses the divine will as well as the human will.

    I hope you plan on keeping this word study blog up a while, Manny. As I read by some of these scriptures, I may remember your mention of the word. It’ll be good to look back to your blog for insight.
