True freedom is achieved when a man/woman has experienced the in-filling of the Holy Spirit in his/her life – @PastorRan.
Jesus never had an earthly father as most people who are born into this world do. In Matthew chapter 1, the Bible accounts that when Mary conceived Jesus, she was still a virgin. God had to send the Holy Spirit to plant a seed in the womb of Mary in order for a baby to be born.
Matthew 1:18 “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as His mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.”
This is the reality and the wonders of a mighty God that we serve. He can create a child where there is no child, He can convert a stick to become a snake, His nostrils parted the seas and He can provide bread baked from heaven to be dropped right here on the earth. Jesus never existed as a son in heaven; no one ever saw the face of Jesus, no one ever spoke directly with him because He was always described as the word of God. The apostle John said.
John 1:14 “…the word became flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld his glory, the glory of the only begotten of the Father full of grace and truth…”
John was saying here that they saw the word of God, John was referring to Jesus as the word of God which has now been wrapped in flesh and dwelt among them.
Whenever Jesus spoke of the Father, some disciples often got confused because they thought that He was referring to the Father in heaven. Jesus was referring to the Holy Ghost.
On a certain occasion, Jesus told His disciples that if they had seen Him, they had seen the Father (John 14:9-10). This means that the Holy Ghost is our true Father because we have been born again and raised from the dead just like Jesus. The Holy Spirit was the one that raised up Jesus from the dead; this Spirit lives in you right now. The Bible says
Romans 8:11 “if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead lives in you; he that raised up Jesus from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by the same spirit that dwell in you”.

Father, thank You for being my Father. I am not alone, I am not an orphan and I am not disadvantaged. The creator of the world is my Father. The Spirit that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in me and has vitalized my body. I am the healed of God today in Jesus’ name. Amen.
