Abba Father…though fig trees may no longer bloom, or vineyards produce grapes; olive trees may be fruitless, and harvest time a failure; sheep pens may be empty, and cattle stalls vacant, yet will I rejoice in the Lord…I will be joyful in God my Savior!  The Sovereign Lord is my strength!  You make my feet like hinds feet, enabling me to walk sure-footed in my adversities! [Hab 3:17-19]

It is Your Holy Spirit, Father, Who places me where I am to be; leads me where I am to go; shows me what I am to do to participate with Him in His work; gives me the thoughts I am to think and to present, the words I am to speak or write.  Spirit of the Living God, I wait upon You in absolute surrender of any reliance upon the powers of my flesh…my human capabilities and capacities, my own efforts and my own strength, my own wisdom, knowledge, and understanding…and I acknowledge to You that these powers of my flesh are of no use to me in my life with God.  I trust in You with an unwavering child-like trust and I depend upon You with an unreserved child-like dependence, to rise up within me, sweep over my soul, and lead me into the Heavenly realms…into the Heavenly Sanctuary, and through the rent veil of my flesh into the Holy of Holies, into the inaccessible Light of the glory of the unclouded Presence of my Father and my God!

But I, Jesus, tell you the truth: it is for your good that I am going away.  Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you to be in intimate fellowship with you.  But if I go, I will send Him to you.  I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counselor, that He may remain with you forever…the Spirit of Truth.  The world cannot receive nor accept Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him.  But you know Him, for He abides continually with you, and will dwell in you.  The Counselor…the Holy Spirit…Whom the Father will send in My Name, will teach you all things, and will bring to your remembrance everything I have said to you.  You have this anointing from the Holy One, and so all of you shall indeed know the Truth.  The anointing which you received from the Father abides permanently in you…so then you have no need that anyone should instruct you.  But just as His anointing teaches you concerning all things, and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit, so you must abide in Him and never depart from Him, being rooted in Him just as His anointing has taught you to do. [John 16:7; 14:16-17, 26; 1 John 2:20, 27]

**        **, greatly beloved…in the confident assurance in God which faith gives, you are ever to remember one thing above all…to wait upon God.  Your chief need in waiting upon God, one of the deepest secrets of its blessedness and blessing, is a quiet, confident persuasion that it is not in vain; courage to believe that God will hear and help.  You are waiting upon a God who never could disappoint His children!  In the utter insufficiency of all human strength, “Be strong and let thine heart take courage.”  You are to let NOTHING in Heaven or Earth or Hell…let NOTHING keep you from waiting on your God in the full assurance of faith that it cannot be in vain!

Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the Earth!  Worship our Lord with gladness; come into His Presence with joyful songs!  I sing to You, Father; I sing praises to You!  I proclaim all Your wonderful deeds on behalf of the souls of Man!  I celebrate and worship Your Holy Name!  Lord God Almighty, let the hearts of those who seek You rejoice! [Ps 100:1-2; 105:2-3]  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.”

With A Prayer, Love incarnate:
