Abba Father…You have indeed poured, and are continually pouring, all of Your Blessedness and all of Your Goodness into me. We have intimate fellowship together in our trysting place where we meet just to commune every morning. Your Holy Spirit continually works in me, bringing me ever more deeply into a living union of oneness with You. [John 17:20-26]
My beloved child…from the very beginning, this is My Eternal Purpose in creating Man: I made you for Myself, in My Own image and in My Own likeness, to be joined together with Me in a Sacred Covenant relationship…a living union of oneness…the very crown jewels of My creation, and that, as a mirror of the Almighty, you would reflect My glory to the created Universe.
I purchased you, by Myself and for Myself, with the precious and priceless Blood of My Divine Son Jesus, that you would declare My praises…the praises of the One Who called you out of darkness into My marvelous light.
I made you to be a kingdom of priests, a holy nation, consecrated and set apart to the worship of God…consecrated and set apart to worship Me!
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a special possession, purchased by Myself and for Myself, that you may declare My praises…the praises of the One Who called you out of darkness into My marvelous light! Now therefore, if you will obey My voice in truth and be careful to keep My Covenant, then you shall be My Own treasured possession, from among and above all peoples…for all the Earth is Mine. And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests, a holy nation… consecrated and set apart to the worship of God. [1 Peter 2:9; Ex 19:5-6]
** **, greatly beloved, I made a Covenant with My people whom I have created and whom I had chosen: This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD: Listen to the terms of this Covenant and tell them to the people of Judah and to those who live in Jerusalem. Tell them that this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Cursed is the man who does not obey the terms of this Covenant…the terms I commanded your forefathers when I brought them out of Egypt, out of the iron-smelting furnace. I said, Obey Me and do everything I command you, and you will be My people, and I will be your God. Then I will fulfill the oath I swore to your forefathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey…the land you possess today. I answered, “Amen, LORD.” The LORD further said to me, Proclaim all these words in the towns of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem: Listen to the terms of this Covenant and follow them. From the time I brought your forefathers up from Egypt until today, I warned them again and again, saying, Obey Me. But they did not listen or pay attention; instead, they followed the stubbornness of their own evil hearts. So I brought upon them all the curses of the Covenant I had commanded them to follow but that they did not keep.
My people did not listen to the terms of My Covenant , nor did they follow them. Therefore, ** **, I made a new Covenant with My people. 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. It will not be like the Covenant I made with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke My Covenant, though I was a husband to them, declares the LORD. This is the Covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time, declares the LORD. I will put My law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be My people.
They will be My people, and I will be their God. I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear Me for their own good and the good of their children after them. I will make an everlasting Covenant with them: I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire them to fear Me, so that they will never turn away from Me. I will rejoice in doing them good and will assuredly plant them in this land with all My heart and soul.
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. [Jer 11:1-9; 31:31-33; 32:38-41; Ezek 36:25-29]
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.”
Oh How Good It Is:
