Abba Father…You are continually fulfilling in me the very purpose for which You created me. And what is this blessedness and goodness that You are continually pouring into me? It is the marvelous light You shine into my heart, giving me the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ Your Son…the inaccessible Light of the Glory of His Presence! [2 Cor 4:4-6] Hallelujah!
My beloved child…My children did not listen to the terms of My Covenant, nor did they follow them. Therefore I purposed to make a new Covenant with them. The time is coming, declares the LORD, when I will make a new Covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put My Spirit in you and move you to follow My decrees and be careful to keep My laws. You will live in the land I gave your forefathers; you will be My people, and I will be your God.
** **, greatly beloved, the Day of Pentecost was the fulfillment of My promise and the beginning of God’s New Covenant. And I Myself, Jesus the Christ, will send the Holy Spirit upon you, just as My Father has promised. Don’t begin telling others yet, but stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with Power from Heaven. [Luke 24:49] And when the day of Pentecost was in process of being fulfilled, they were all together in the same place. And suddenly there came an echoing sound out of Heaven as of a wind borne along violently. And it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues that had the appearance of fire, these tongues being distributed among them, and one of these tongues took up a position upon each of them. And all were controlled by the Holy Spirit and began to be uttering words in languages different from their own native language and different from those spoken by the others, even as the Spirit kept giving them ability to speak forth, not in words of everyday speech but in words belonging to dignified and elevated discourse. [Acts 2:1-4 Wuest] And when I, Peter, began to speak, the Holy Spirit came down on them just as on us at the beginning. Then I remembered what the Lord had said: John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit. Since it is clear that God gave those Gentiles the same Gift of the Holy Spirit that He gave us when we believed in the Lord Jesus Christ; who was I, then, to try to stop God! [Acts 11:15-17]
Child of God! My people did not have the power in their sin-enslaved human nature to be faithful to God’s first Old Covenant agreement. They were hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless to do so. So I, your God and Father, inaugurated and ratified a New Covenant, through the Blood of My Divine Son Jesus, and gave My people My Gift of the Holy Spirit to dwell within them…never to leave them, never to forsake them. My Holy Spirit was given for the purpose of being the Power abiding within you enabling you to live faithfully in your Sacred Covenant relationship with God. As such, and in cooperation with God’s intended purpose for giving the Holy Spirit to dwell in you, you are constrained, ** **, to live your everyday life out of the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit, and not out of the power of your sin-enslaved human nature. In other words, you must give My Holy Spirit Sovereign rule over the conduct of your every day life. Your sin-enslaved human nature…the flesh…has been crucified with Christ My Son. You are never to allow your flesh to come down off that cross and usurp rule and authority in your life…in ANYTHING. The Holy Spirit must BE ALL in you, and DO ALL in you. You are to live and move and have your very being in Him alone. My Holy Spirit is the One Who places you where you are to be, leads you where you are to go, shows you what you are to do to participate with Him in His work, gives you the thoughts you are to think and present, the words you are to speak or write. My Divine Son Jesus is your example, Who said, I only do what My Father shows Me to do; I only speak the words My Father gives Me to speak. Since that was His attitude and mind set, wouldn’t you think it should be yours also, My beloved child?
Abba Father…this is surely the blessed life of deep and intimate personal relationship with You: my waiting upon God…watching and waiting, looking off unto You and listening for Your voice…with an unwavering child-like trust and an unreserved child-like dependence, with a joyful expectation and an excited anticipation…for You to reveal Yourself to me ever more deeply and intimately, and Your plans, Your purposes, Your will for me…SO I MAY THEN RESPOND, with an unquestioning child-like obedience, to every leading and prompting of the Holy Spirit, cooperating with the Power of His enabling grace Who works in me both to will and to do.
Blessed Holy Spirit…You are the Divine Nature dwelling in me, Whose Power in me continually guarantees and secures my capability to live my everyday life: faithful to my solemn marriage vows as the bride of Christ; faithfully within the Holy of Holies and the unclouded Presence of my Father in our Sacred Covenant relationship.
Lord God Almighty…even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are always with me; Your rod and Your staff protect, guide, and comfort me. You prepare a banquet before me in the presence of my enemies! You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows with blessings! Surely Your Goodness and Love accompanies me all the days of my life, and I shall abide in Your house forever! [Ps 23:4-6] 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.”
Fire, there’s a fire burning in my heart:
