July 23

My beloved child, Christ My Son enabled you to stand before Me…washed in the Blood of the Lamb, dressed in the white robes of His Own Righteousness, pure and holy in My sight, without spot or wrinkle or blemish.  For God took the sinless Christ and poured into Him your sins.  Then, in exchange, He poured Christ’s Own Righteousness into you! [Father God…Eph 5:25-27; 2 Cor 5:21]

Abba Father…thank You for Personally taking me by the hand and leading me into Your inner circle…the Holy of Holies.  I am here solely and only because of Your boundless Mercy, Your infinite Grace, Your Unconditional Love.  You gave Your Divine Son Jesus to become the sacrificial Lamb of God, Who came into this world to become the One only all-sufficient atoning sacrifice through His death on a cross and subsequent resurrection, thereby securing forgiveness for my sins and restoring my relationship with God that had been severed by my sins.  On that momentous day when I earnestly made a solemn vow before God in giving myself to be the bride of Christ Your Son [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], receiving Jesus the Christ into my life in divine marriage, promising to honor and obey Him as both Lord over my life and Savior of my soul…You granted me the right to become born into the Family of God as Your child…a child of the Most High God!  And then You dressed me in the appropriate wedding garment…the white robes of His Own Righteousness, enabling me to be worthy to be seated here at Your banqueting table!  Then the king said to his servants,The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come.  Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.”  So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.  But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing a wedding garment.  “Friend,” he asked, “How did you come in here without putting on the appropriate wedding garment?”  The man was speechless.  Then the king told the attendants, “Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.  For many are invited and summoned, but few are chosen.” [Matt 22:8-14]

Abba Father…You have given me fine, radiant linen to wear…dazzling and white…which are the good deeds and righteous acts Your Holy Spirit has done through me, as I have given Him free reign to do so, so that my light would so shine before the souls of men that they would see, as in a mirror of the Almighty, the God-ordained origin of the praiseworthy and noble deeds, righteous acts, and moral excellence continually being wrought in me by Your Holy Spirit, and thereby recognize, honor, praise and glorify You, Father, in Heaven. [Matt 5:16]  Then the angel said to me, “Write this down: Blessed are those summoned to the marriage banquet of the Lamb…all true believers who are members of His Universal Church.  They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with Power and great Glory.  And He will send His angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect…God’s holy people…from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.”  And he said to me further, “These are the True Words of God.” [Rev 19:9]

Blessed Jesus…I rejoice and shout triumphantly for joy!  I celebrate and ascribe to You glory and honor, for the marriage of the Lamb draws near, and Your bride, the Universal Church and each of her members, has been preparing herself and has made herself ready! [Rev 19:7]  Hallelujah!

On Christ the solid rock I stand:
