My beloved child…At that moment when you make a solemn vow before God to become the bride of Christ in a divine marriage,
you are joined inseparably together with My Divine Son Jesus in an eternal living union of oneness…flesh of His flesh and bone of His bones…through the regeneration wrought in you by the Holy Spirit. It is Finished! The Eternal Power of the Blood of Christ has guaranteed and secured your eternal union with Him as an accomplished and finished fact. [Father God…John 17:21-23]
** **, this is the only way a soul can be born again…born into the Kingdom of God as a child of the Most High God, through the Power of the Holy Spirit. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under Heaven given to men by which you must be saved. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will never experience eternal life, but will remain under God’s punishment. My Divine Son Jesus has made it clearly known, “I am the way and the truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me. I am the Resurrection and the Life. Anyone who believes in Me, though dying a physical death like everyone else, will rise again to an eternal life together with Me in Heaven.” [Acts 4:12; John 3:36, 14:6-7, 11:25-26]
Brothers and sisters in Christ, here is an excerpt from Hudson Taylor’s Spiritual Secret: The Spirit of God reveals to me the truth of my oneness with Jesus. How to get faith strengthened? Not by striving after faith, but by resting on the Faithful One. If we believe not, yet He abideth faithful: He cannot deny Himself. [2 Tim 2:13] I look to Jesus, and see that He has said, “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” [Heb 13:5] Ah…there is rest! I have striven in vain to rest in Him. I will strive no more, for has not He promised to abide with me…never to leave me, never to forsake me?
******As I thought of the vine and the branches, what light the Blessed Spirit poured direct into my soul! How great seemed my mistake in wishing to get the sap…all of His fullness…out of Him and into my puny branch! I saw not only that Jesus will never leave me, but that I am a member of His body…flesh of His flesh and bone of His bones. The vine is not the root merely, but ALL…root, stem, branches, twigs, leaves, flowers, fruit. And Jesus is not that alone…He is soil and sunshine, air and showers, and ten thousand times more than I have ever dreamed, wished for, or needed! Oh, the joy of embracing this truth!
******It is a wonderful thing to be really one with a risen and exalted Saviour, to be a member of Christ! Think what that involves! Can Christ be rich and I poor? Can your right hand be rich and your left hand poor…or your head be well fed while your body starves? Again, think of its bearing on prayer. Could a bank clerk say to a customer, “It was only your hand, not you, that wrote that check; or, “I cannot pay this sum to your hand, but only to yourself?” No longer can my prayers be discredited if offered in the name of Jesus (not for the sake of Jesus merely, but on the ground that I am His…His member), so long as I keep within the limits of Christ’s credit…a tolerably wide limit! If I ask for anything unscriptural, or not in accordance with the will of God…Christ Himself could not, would not, do that! But if I ask anything according to His will…I know that I shall have the petitions I desired of Him!
Here is our new song…the song of the redeemed:
