My beloved child…your soul remaining at rest in an unruffled child-like rest bears witness to the reality that you are abiding in the Holy of Holies in My unclouded Presence. Whenever your soul remains vexed, that is the barometer…the alarm within your soul…warning that you have wandered away from your home and resting place in the Shelter of the Most High. [Father God…Ps 91:1-16]
Brothers and sisters in Christ…following is a personal testimony illustrating how unquestioning child-like obedience to every leading and prompting of the Holy Spirit always brings the blessings of God…
During the period of time after hearing the Lord’s call to prison ministry, I began wondering before the Lord as to how I might get started, having absolutely no knowledge about this ministry. Oftentimes I said to the Lord, “How will I know You are showing me what I am to do; how can I be sure it is You, and not just something I am thinking or imagining? How will I know it is Your voice?” Then came another of the Lord’s seven “are you sure yet?” experiences, again while at home in Brooklyn [July, 1995]. One late morning, having just recently picked up the newly printed copies of the book I had just published, I decided to go to the hospital in downtown Brooklyn, and give out copies to the people in the waiting room there. As I neared the hospital, out of the clear blue the Spirit of God said [not an audible voice, but a voice speaking within me that was just as clear as if it were audible], “Go to Brooklyn House of Detention.” I was startled, but I responded, “Well, OK Lord; I will do that.” Brooklyn House was only a few blocks from the Hospital, and so in obedience “to every leading and prompting of the Holy Spirit” I drove there instead of to the hospital. I didn’t know what I was supposed to do there; the Lord had given me no further instruction. As I approached the broad concrete steps leading up to massive front doors, I saw a small line of people to my right, leading up to a window. I decided to wait on that line, and then ask at the window how to get in touch with the Chaplain. It was a hot, sunny day, and no shade on that line that seemed to be taking such a long time for my turn at the window. Several times I thought of leaving, to go to the hospital, and come back later. But the Spirit said, “No; stay on line.” When I finally got to the window, the person there said she was just a clerk for the posting of bonds, and didn’t know anything about how to contact the Chaplain, or even his name. Being rather disappointed, I began walking back toward the steps leading to the front doors. Just then, a man walked out of the prison and was coming down the steps. I thought, “I’ll ask him; maybe he can help me.” “Pardon me, sir,” I said. “Can you tell me how I can get in touch with the Chaplain?” He looked at me, and said, “I am the Chaplain.” Incredible! The Lord spoke to me again, for the sixth time, “Are you sure yet? Well just in case you’re not, I am going to show you another thing.” Obedience to the leading of the Spirit always brings the blessings of God!
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.
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.”
Love of God:
