My beloved child…fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you. When you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. You are precious and honored in My sight. [Father God…Isa 43:1-7]
** **, greatly beloved…I Myself have prepared a promised rest for you. No matter what storms of life may be raging…a fierce 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. In the shadow of the Almighty, you will find an unruffled child-like rest for your soul. This is your birth-right as My son/daughter. The Eternal Power of the Blood of My Divine Son Jesus has guaranteed and secured your eternal access into the Heavenly Sanctuary and the Holy of Holies…into My unclouded Presence and My promised rest. The way into My promised rest is so simple, a child can understand it. It is so simple, though, that only a child can embrace it and enter in. Anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.
Whenever an adversity touches your life, the first thing you need 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. When I allow an adversity to touch your life, it is because I have a special blessing laid aside for you I want you to have…a blessing that can only be appropriated by your patiently enduring the particular adversity I have allowed to touch your life. I assure you…My blessings that come through suffering are the richest of rewards your faith can win!
My beloved child…the only way you can remain in My promised rest is by your unwavering child-like trust both in My Love for you and in My Sovereignty over all Creation, your unreserved child-like dependence upon the leading of My Holy Spirit, and your unquestioning child-like obedience to, and acceptance of, My will as the very best, very kindest, most loving thing that can possibly be. You are responsible to consciously and deliberately wait upon Me…to look off unto Me and listen for My voice. That is to be your life, ** **. What My Spirit shows you to do, He will also enable you to do. It is His work from beginning to end. You are responsible to be obedient and participate in His work whenever He shows you to do so, and to cooperate with His Power at work in you…not to try doing His work on your own.
Lord God Almighty, You are glorious in Your Majesty, majestic in Holiness, awesome in Power, You are our wonder-working God. You do what You will with the powers of Heaven and Earth. You call the things that are not just as though they are. You merely speak, and it is done; the very words You speak carry within themselves the Power to effect what You have spoken… immediately, completely, continually. The mountains quake before You, and the hills melt away. The very mountains melt like wax in Your Presence! The Earth trembles at Your Presence…the world and all who live in it. Heaven and Earth flee from the Almightiness of Your Presence!
Who can be compared with You? Who is Your equal? Who was there when You formed the Heavens and all their starry hosts, and called them out, each one, by name? Who was there when You created the Earth and all that’s on it…all things visible and invisible, all things animate and inanimate, all things, whether thrones or rulers or authorities? Who was there when You formed the seas and all that is in them, and set their boundaries that they might not transgress it? Whoever, O Lord, were Your instructors, that You should acquire knowledge from them? Whoever were Your counselors, that You should learn wisdom and understanding from them? No…You are God, and You alone; there is none other besides You. You are the One True Living God, and You live and reign forever and ever throughout the eternal ages!
Abba Father…You are my strength and my shield! My heart trusts in You, for You are my help in every time of need! You are my Light and my Salvation…whom shall I fear? You are my Refuge, the Stronghold of my life…of whom shall I be afraid? Precious Lord…my heart leaps for joy as I give thanks to You in songs of thanksgiving and praise! [Ps 28:7; 27:1]
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.”
It Is Well With My Soul:
