** **, greatly beloved…My Son Jesus said in His heart, Father…if it is not possible for this cup of suffering to pass from Me unless I drink it…if this cup of suffering is the only means through which I can appropriate the blessings You have laid aside for Me… then not My will, but Your will be done. I will gladly accept the suffering of the cross I must endure, heedless of its shame. [Father God…Luke 22:42]
Beloved…the proof of faith is in living your life in accordance with, and in agreement
with, what you say you believe. There are many hundreds of verses in Scripture where I promise My sufficiency to meet every need you may encounter during your lifetime. It is faith alone that embraces these promises, and makes them yours. It is faith alone that enables you to live a peaceful and calm, tranquil and unruffled life, always living in My unclouded Presence in the Holy of Holies. Child of God! Do you not believe My promises, which I Myself have spoken?
Do not be afraid…I will save you. I have called you by name…you are Mine. When you pass through deep waters, I will be with you; your troubles will not overwhelm you. When you pass through fire, you will not be burned; the hard trials that come will not hurt you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, the God Who saves you. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful. Isa 43:1-3; Heb 10:23] Do you believe the incredible assurances God has given you in these two Scriptures,
** **, and have you embraced them as your own? Then why are you despairing and giving up hope in your troubles and hard trials, and why are you so depressed? Why do you think I have abandoned you, and do not hear your prayers? Am I not the God Who saves you?
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. [Isa 40:31] Do you believe that God will renew your strength, My child, as you wait upon Me? Are you weary, heavy laden, and losing heart? Why, then, have you not sat before the Lord and waited upon Me; I have promised to renew your strength, haven’t I?
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. You will keep on guiding me all my life, Lord, with Your wisdom and counsel, and afterwards receive me into the glories of Heaven! [Ps 32:8; 73:24] Do you believe that God will faithfully instruct and teach and guide you all the days of your life, ** **, as I promised I would? Then why don’t you turn to Me and inquire of Me concerning where to go or what to do? Why do you keep on trying to live your life in the power of your sin-enslaved human nature…in reliance upon your human capabilities and capacities, by you own efforts and strength, according to your own wisdom, knowledge and understanding?
But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, Who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting. [James 1:5-6] Do you believe that God will give wisdom to all who ask in faith? Then, ** **, why do you continue trying to solve your problems and difficulties through your human capabilities and capacities, by your own efforts and in your own strength, according to your own wisdom, knowledge and understanding? Why haven’t you turned to the Lord and asked Me to lead and guide you by My Holy Spirit? I, the Lord, have promised to give generously and without reproach to all who ask in faith!
Friends, brothers and sisters…
This is what the Lord Jesus says: Behold, I am coming quickly! My reward is with Me, and I will render to everyone according to what his work merits. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to enter through the gates into the city and eat the fruit from the Tree of Life. [Jesus…Rev 22:12-14, 2:7; John 10:7-9]
Blessed Jesus…in that glorious coming Day, every eye will see You, even those who pierced You, and all the peoples of the Earth will mourn because of You. And all those upon the Earth who never knew You…the rich as well as the poor; the kings and princes and rulers of this world, as well as their subjects and slaves; the famous and the well-known, as well as the unknown and the obscure…all of these alike will run to the hills and to the mountains in abject terror, to hide in caves and to cry out for the rocks to fall upon them…just to hide them from the face of the Lamb and Your terrible Majesty. [Rev 1:7; 6:15-17; Isa 2:19-21] And this is Your counsel to the children of God: Beloved…The Day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire. Since everything on the Earth will be destroyed in this way, you ought to live a holy and godly life as you look forward to the coming Day of the Lord! Everyone who has this hope purifies himself, just as He is pure. [Jesus…2 Peter 3:10-12; 1 John 3:3]
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.”
The King of Love:
