My beloved child…trust yourself completely to Me.  Whenever you suffer adversity because it is My will for you, keep on doing what is right, and entrust your life to the God Who created you, for I will never fail you.  I always keep My promises! [Father God…1 Peter 4:19]

**         **, greatly beloved…don’t you know?  Don’t you understand?  Without faith, it is impossible to please Me.  Faith is not belief only; faith is a verb…an action word.  Faith is the living out of your life in a manner that bears witness to the truth of what you say you believe.  What you believe in your mind is not faith until you have acted in reliance upon that belief.  Faith is an action that bears witness to your…
Unwavering child-like trust in Me;
Unreserved child-like dependence upon Me;
Unquestioning child-like obedience to do My will, and to accept My will.
No matter how fierce the storms raging in your life may be, the confirmation in your spirit that you have genuine faith will be…
Your undaunted resting in Me with an unruffled child-like rest;
Your undaunted abiding in Me with an unclouded child-like carefree joy.

God knows you perfectly, **        **.  I know everything there is to know about you and, as a matter of fact, I had full knowledge of you in eternity past, well before the creation of the world!  I knew every thought you would ever think, every word you would ever speak, everything you would ever do during your lifetime!  I knew what your every motive for doing things would be, your every attitude about doing them, your every disposition and feeling.  I knew all these things perfectly and completely before you were ever born; yet, even so, with full knowledge of all you would ever be and say and do, I consciously and freely chose to love you!  It was because I chose to love you that I created you!  There was nothing in you worthy of My pure and Holy love, nothing in you that would draw Me or attract Me to loving you.  Yet, even so, I consciously and freely chose to love you!  You may well ask, how is this possible; how can this be?  The one only, yet all sufficient, answer is that the very heart of God is Love.  God is Love; love is My very nature, love is My very essence, love is the very core of My Being, and I love you because of Who I am, not because of who or what you are.  There is nothing you could do to cause God to love you more, because My love for you is already infinite. There is nothing you could do to cause God to love you less, because nothing you think or say or do is a surprise to Me…I knew it all completely in eternity past, and considered it all, and with this full knowledge consciously and freely chose to love you.  My love for you is unconditional; you have absolutely no impact on nor influence over My love for you.  Just as time, as an illustration of what I am speaking about, ticks relentlessly by, completely undaunted by anything you can possibly do to hinder its unceasing march, so God’s love flows unceasingly toward you, undaunted by anything you could possibly think, or say, or do to hinder it.  Though you may trample every clock in existence, you have had no effect on time itself, having trampled only the measure of time.  Though you may trample every expression of God’s love toward you, you have had no effect on My love, having trampled only the measure of My infinite love for you.

Beloved child…I, your God and Father, love you with an incomprehensible love; yes, the very reason I created you was so that I could pour all of My blessedness and all of My goodness into you!  The very purpose for your having been created, and created in My very Own image and likeness, was so that I could have a deep and intimate personal relationship with you, and be one with you in heart, mind and spirit!   Don’t you understand, precious child?  You were created as an empty vessel so that I Myself could Personally work in you all that I created you to be!  I created you as an empty vessel so that I could be the One to Personally satisfy your every need, every want, every desire!  I created you as an empty vessel so that I could Personally invite you into this living, loving relationship with Myself…a Sacred Covenant relationship…that you may be filled to overflowing with the immeasurable fullness of God Himself!  I designed all the delicate, inner parts of your body and knit them together in your mother’s womb!  You were custom-made, with the necessary capabilities and capacities you would need to do the good works I had planned in advance for you to do.  I was there while you were being formed in utter seclusion!  I carefully watched over you all the days before you were born, and scheduled each day of your life before you ever began to breathe!  Every day of your life was already recorded in My book!  I, the God of all Creation and your Father, am constantly thinking about you!  You could not even begin to count how many times during the day My thoughts turn toward you, and when you awaken in the morning, I am still thinking of you! [Ps 139]

Abba Father…all who take refuge in the shelter of the Most High are filled with gladness; I shall ever sing and shout for joy!  You spread Your protection over me, that I who love Your Name may continually rejoice in Your Presence!  For surely, O Lord, You pour out blessings upon the righteous; You surround me with Your unfailing Love as with a shield! [Ps 5:11-12]  Hallelujah!

Friends, brothers and sisters…

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 you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom.  I tell you the
truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are 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.”
