Nesteia (3521) abstain, go without, not take part in.

Verses - Isaiah 58:3,4; Matthew 16:6; Acts 13:2,3; 2nd

Corinthians 6:5 11:27.

First Use: Judges 20:26 Then all the children of Israel and all the people, went up
and came unto the house of God and wept and sat there before the LORD and
fasted that day until even and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before
the LORD.

Isaiah 58:5-12 Is it such a fast that I (God) have chosen? A day for a man to
afflict his soul? Is it to bow down his head as a bulrush and to spread sackcloth
and ashes under him? Wilt thou call this a fast and an acceptable day of the
LORD? Is not this the fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of
wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens and to let the oppresses go free and
that ye break every yoke? Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry and that
thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? When thou seest the naked,
that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? Then
shall thy light break forth as the morning and thy health shall spring forth
speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD
shall be thy rear guard. Then shalt thou call and the LORD shall answer; thou
shall cry and He shall say here I am...

Fasting is doing without. For instance, avoiding anger or jealousy, also examining our
thoughts and speech are all acceptable fasts. Going without food is also a powerful fast
in that the flesh and self-life are being denied. Hunger is a natural physical instinct,
when we deny our hunger, our bodies let us know that we are hungry. The power in this
type of fast is to then take that physical reminder of hunger and to be reminded that
actually I hunger spiritually for the things of God. Throughout the time of the fast we are
continually using the desire for food to remind us of our desire for God and in doing so
we are re-adjusting our focus onto God. By the end of the fast we are more in the habit
of seeking God and less in the habit of seeking self. Fasting is not a tool to gain God's
recognition. The fast is a tool to readjust our focus and for us to seek God. When we
seek God we will find Him.

Matthew 17:14-21.. And Jesus rebuked the devil (demon); and he departed out
of him
(a man's son): and the child was cured that very hour. Then came the
disciples to Jesus apart
(away from the crowd) and said, Why could not we cast
(demon) out? .. Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
This necessary fasting to help others overcome demonic possession, oppression and
strongholds, is the fasting of helping and bondage breaking. The gifts that God has given
us are to loosen the bonds that keep people in captivity. The gifts include helps - helping
people with various tasks; giving - giving to relieve burdens, teaching - explaining the
truths about God from the Bible. Any of the gifts used in conjunction with prayer are
going to weaken and remove the demonic strongholds that Satan is trying to entangle
into in the lives of humans.

Father see also God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, Triunity

Pater (3962) Father, daddy, giver of life, instructor, helper, authority, overseer
Hebrew: Abba (1) Father, daddy, giver of life, instructor, helper, authority,

Verses - John 8:16 10:30 14:10 16:27 17:21; Ephesians 1:1; 1st

Thessalonians 1:1;

James 1:17; Revelation 3:5.

First Use: Genesis 2:24 therefore shall a man leave his father (life giver) and his
mother and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Ephesians 6:23 Peace be to the brethren and love with faith, from God the
Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
In Greek when the word "and" is used, it usually
groups like or equal value items. In this verse peace "and" love, also the Father "and"
Jesus. Peace is equal to and in the same category as love. Likewise the Father is equal
to and in the same category as Jesus.

Father is where we receive life and come into existence. No father no life. In our physical
life we need a father and we also need a mother. Through our physical father and

mother we become a physical being. God is one and refers to Himself as Father. There is
not a mother God, but this does not exclude God the Father from also being a Mother.
God is complete. When He created man and woman God made us incomplete. Men have
some God given characteristics and abilities and women have some God given
characteristics and abilities. Genesis 1:27 So God created man (humans) in His own
image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.

God in Himself has all the [good] characteristics and abilities of both man and woman
combined and God has many more characteristics and abilities than we will ever have.
God is our Father. He gives us physical life. To those that acknowledge Him as God, He
becomes the Spiritual Father giving Spiritual life as well.

Romans 8:14-16 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons
of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye
have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry Abba, Father. The Spirit
itself beareth witness with our spirit that we are the children of God:
