My beloved child…The very nature of God is Light; in Me there is no darkness at all!  If you consistently and deliberately pattern your behavior according to the Light, as I Myself am in the Light, then you indeed have mutual fellowship with God your Father, and the Blood of My Divine Son Jesus continually purifies you from every sin. [Father God…1 John 1:5-7]

Abba Father…my eyes are filled with tears of sorrow as I rest my weary head against Your bosom, and bury my face in Your bosom, unable even to lift up my eyes to Heaven as I remember my many, many sins and failures, mistakes and imperfections, of the days and years gone by.  With my hand, I cover my mouth in hushed silence on account of my shame, because You have forgiven me of all that I have done, through the atoning sacrifice of Your Divine Son Jesus.  You loved me so much that You did not spare Your Own Son, but voluntarily gave Him up for me.  Blessed Jesus, You loved me with an everlasting love, and voluntarily lay down Your life for me, even unto death.  You freed me from my sins by Your Own precious and priceless Blood, and have blotted out the entire record of all the charges proven against me!

Father, I am ashamed because of how reluctant I have been to freely and voluntarily pour out my love for You by voluntarily laying down my own life on that altar of sacrifice as You have done for me…wholly surrendered unto You, wholly given for the blessings and salvation of souls.  I have been so reluctant to voluntarily become Your bond- slave…which was a choice made in times of old…not out of gratitude but out of love.  But if the servant shall plainly say, “I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go free,” then his master shall bring him to God [the judges as His agents]; he shall bring him to the door or doorpost and shall pierce his ear with an awl; and he shall serve him for life. [Ex 21:5-6]  And you shall earnestly remember that you were a bondman in the land of Egypt and the Lord your God redeemed you; therefore I give you this command today.  But if the servant says to you, “I will not go away from you,” because he loves you and your household, since he does well with you, then take an awl and pierce his ear through to the door, and he shall be your bond-servant for life.  And also to your bondwoman you shall do likewise. [Deut 15:15-17]

Abba Father…the Blood of Your Divine Son Jesus envelops my soul…encases my soul…as an impenetrable shield; sin can never again stain my soul.  The Blood of Your Divine Son Jesus has conferred upon me the status of eternal righteousness before You, Father… for my body and my soul have been washed in the Blood of the Lamb, and I am now dressed in the white robes of His Own Righteousness, forever pure and holy in Your sight…without spot or wrinkle or blemish.  And although my inner garments often become soiled with sin, I can continually come before You to acknowledge and confess my sins and failures; You are faithful and just to forgive me for my sins, and You are faithful and just to cleanse me of all unrighteousness.  You wash anew my garments that have been soiled with sin in the Blood of Your Divine Son Jesus, and make them clean again, dazzling and white.  And You wash my feet with pure water…You wash the dust of sin off my feet, enabling me to stand before You in the Holy of Holies, in the inaccessible light of the Glory of Your unclouded Presence.  This is my birthright…by virtue of being born again and adopted into Your Family as a child of the most High God!  Hallelujah!

The Blood of Your Divine Son Jesus has guaranteed and secured my eternal access into the Holy of Holies.  Wherefore, brethren, having now boldness to enter into the Holiest by the Blood of Jesus, by the way which He dedicated for me…a new and living way to God through the veil, that is to say, through the veil of His flesh…I will then without further hesitation or delay draw nigh in fullness of faith; here will I continually abide in the fullness of faith. [Heb 10:19-20, 22]
The Eternal Power and Worth of the Blood of Christ has guaranteed and secured my status of eternal righteousness before God for all time and all eternity.  To Him Who ever loves us and has once for all loosed and freed us from our sins by His Own Blood [Rev 1:5]
The Eternal Power and Worth of the Blood of Christ continually washes my garments whenever they become soiled with sin, and makes them clean again…dazzling and white. Jesus continually washes my feet with pure water, washing the dust of sin from my feet, just as He did for His disciples at that last Passover meal before His crucifixion and death.  They have washed their robes and made them white in the Blood of the Lamb. [Rev 7:14-15]  Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith..having our bodies washed with pure water. [Heb 10:22]  Jesus answered, “A person who has bathed needs only to wash his feet; his whole body is already clean. [John 13:10]
The Eternal Power and Worth of the Blood of Christ continually sprinkles my heart from an evil conscience…a conscience that seeks to hold me guilty and condemn me.  Let us draw near with a true heart in fullness of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience. [Heb 10:22]

Surely the Presence of the Lord is in this place:
