My beloved child…Whenever an adversity touches your life, the first thing you are to acknowledge, and embrace in your heart, is that it comes from My loving hand. Nothing can touch your life apart from My having either Personally allowed it to happen, or having caused it to do so…and all for My Own good purpose. [Father God…Phil 1:19-23]
My child…I want to reveal to you something of the rich eternal treasures from above, in the spiritual realm, that most of My children have never fully understood…have never fully grasped. Even most of My church leaders down through the ages have struggled with explaining this, and have been perplexed by this..and have never really come to the knowledge of the Truth as to why My children oftentimes suffer…why My children are subjected to so much suffering, and seemingly so often. And yet, the explanation is so simple…a child can understand it. It is so simple, though, that only a child can embrace it. The Truth is…whenever adversities and suffering touch your life, I have specifically, consciously, and deliberately allowed it to do so, or I have Personally caused it to do so…because I have laid aside a blessing I want you to have, a blessing of such a nature that it can only be appropriated by your patiently enduring the adversity I have allowed to touch your life. No matter how deep the sadness or sorrow, how intense the crying and pain, no matter how overwhelming the grief and loneliness and brokenheartedness…it comes from My loving hand. No matter how debilitating the physical disorders, diseases, illnesses; no matter how great the pressure and trials of insults, hardships, persecutions, perplexities and distresses; no matter how sorely troubled and vexed by various pressures, trials and afflictions that worry and weary a human soul…I have allowed it to touch your life for My Own good purpose.
In the life of My child, ** **, there is no such thing as a random occurrence, an accidental happening, an incidental incident. Nothing can touch the life of My child unless I allow it to do so. I am the Sovereign-All Ruler over all Creation, and I exercise My Sovereignty perfectly over all things…immediately, completely, and continually over all things. All that I do or allow, My beloved child, is the very best, very kindest, most loving thing that can possibly be…and I make all things work together for your good. Have you never understood? I love you with a fathomless love; My love for you is unconditional, unfailing, unchanging, unending…eternal and everlasting, a love that will never perish, spoil, or fade!
So why are you bewildered by the fiery trial that has come upon you, as though some strange thing has happened to you? Don’t you yet understand that I Myself have Personally allowed it to touch your life…and for My Own good purpose? You must follow the example of Christ My Son and go into the Garden, there to walk along the same Path that He walked…the Pathway of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial, death to sin and death to self. For the joy of the blessings set before Him… the joy of seeing sinners saved; the joy of reconciling sinners back to God; the joy of restoring your relationship with Me that had been severed by sin; the joy of repairing that mirror of the Almighty you were meant to be that had been shattered by sin…for the joy of securing these eternal blessing on your behalf, My Divine Son Jesus patiently endured the cross, heedless of its shame. [Heb 12:2]
** **, greatly beloved…in the midst of the deepest sadness and sorrow, the most intense crying and pain, overwhelming grief and loneliness and brokenheartedness… no matter how furious the storm raging in your life…no matter how fierce the tempest whipping the waves into a tumultuous, churning turmoil…beneath the surface, in the depths of God, all is peaceful and calm, all is tranquil and unruffled. Through it all, My beloved child, you can rest in Me in an unruffled child-like rest; you can abide with Me with an unclouded, child-like, carefree joy…because you trust in Me with an unwavering child-like trust, you depend upon Me with an unreserved child-like dependence, you have set your heart to obey My will, and to accept My will, with an unquestioning child-like obedience. You can drift off to sleep in the back of the boat in the midst of a fierce storm [Mark 4:35-40]…knowing I have allowed this vexation to touch your life because of a blessing I have Personally laid aside for you that I want you to have…a blessing of such a nature that it can only be appropriated by your patiently enduring the adversity I allowed to touch your life. For the joy of the blessing you know by faith I have set aside for you, you can then patiently endure the adversity, heedless of its vexation. Yes, you can be sure…In that Glorious coming Day, I will wipe away every tear from your eyes; and death shall be no more. There shall be no more sadness and sorrow, no more crying and pain, no more grief and loneliness and brokenheartedness…for the old conditions and the former order of things shall have passed away. [Rev 21:4]
Knowing that I have Personally allowed these adversities to touch your life, ** **, why, then, are you frightened? Why are you downcast; why so vexed? Do you still have no faith? Are you still unwilling to trust with an unwavering child-like trust in My unfailing Love for you, and in My absolute Sovereignty over all Creation? Child of the Most High God! If only you would know in the depths of your soul, if only you would just fully embrace, the greatness of My love I have lavished upon you…that you are named as My Own child! You are My child by birth and by Blood…the Blood of Christ My Son, poured out on your behalf on that cross at Calvary for the forgiveness of your sins!
Friends, brothers and sisters in Christ…
Are you a child of the Most High God, born by means of a second birth into the Family of God? There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God. I tell you the truth, unless one is born again, he cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
