My beloved child…since you are joined together in a living union of oneness with My Divine Son Jesus, you are a new creation. You are no longer the same person you formerly were…your previous moral and spiritual condition has passed away. Behold, a fresh, new life has begun! [Father God…2 Cor 5:17]
Your spiritual birth, ** **, is not a mental or a theological concept; it is as literal and real a new birth as was your physical birth, when I brought you into existence through your human parents. Have you never fully understood this, My child? A person is born into physical life through human parents, but is born into spiritual life in the Kingdom of God through the regeneration wrought by My Holy Spirit. You are a uniquely new-born creation; I Myself am your Father! You are no longer the same person you formerly were…your previous moral and spiritual condition has indeed passed away. Behold, a fresh, new life has indeed begun!
Abba Father…I have experienced this reality continually since the day I was born again! I who was conceived and born into Your Family no longer deliberately, knowingly, and habitually practice sin, for Your Divine nature abides in me. Your principle of life, the Divine sperm, remains permanently within me. I bear in my soul my Father’s Divine DNA! I cannot carelessly, complacently, and indifferently practice sinning during the course of my everyday manner of living, because I am born into new life, I am a new-born creation…I am a born again child of God! Father, I know beyond the shadow of any doubt that all those born into God’s Family are thereby regenerated individuals and do not make a habitual practice of committing sin. The Son of God carefully watches over and protects me…Christ Your Son’s indwelling Divine Presence preserves me against the evil one…and the Devil cannot lay hold of me!
** **, some claim to have a special relationship with Me despite their sinful conduct. They assume that their behavior does not matter to God. Precious child…My children seek to remain sinless in My eyes by continually confessing sin and repenting of it. They do not carelessly, complacently, and indifferently continue to sin, imposing upon My forgiveness by taking it for granted in order to keep on living just as they please. When My children repent of sin, they truly desire to remain free of that sin. Purity, holiness, and righteousness is important to My child because I, Your Father, have impressed upon all My children, “As the One Who called you is Holy, you yourselves also be holy in all your conduct and manner of living. For it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy;'” and, “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect” [1 Peter 1:15-16; Matt 5:48]
Blessed Jesus…my heart hungers and thirsts for purity, holiness, and righteousness in living out my everyday life. And You assured me: “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled” [Mt 5:6] Blessed, You said, are those who, in living out their everyday life, hunger and thirst for a purity, holiness, and righteousness of their own that comes from obedience to the Law. You assured me that my longing will be completely satisfied, and I will be filled up to the measure of all the fullness of God…to the richest measure of Your unclouded Presence, a soul wholly filled and flooded with God Himself! I delight myself in You, Lord…and You promised to grant me the desires and secret petitions of my heart that are in agreement with Your will. You promised that if only I would just commit my way to You and trust in You, most assuredly You will do this: You will make my righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of my cause like the noonday sun! [Psalm 37:4-6]
Blessed Holy Spirit…I continually look to You to guard my heart, that there be nothing in my life I am aware of that I know to be sin…but like doing it, want to keep on doing it, and refuse to give it up for You. The Power of Your indwelling Presence continually guarantees and secures my capability to live my everyday life: faithful to my solemn marriage vows as the bride of Christ; faithfully within the Holy of Holies and my Father’s unclouded Presence in our Sacred Covenant relationship. Hallelujah!
