My beloved child…trust Me with an unwavering child-like trust that in every circumstance, event, and thing that is currently touching your life, and in all that I will yet allow to touch your life, My Spirit will indeed lead you and guide you, showing you how to respond and when. [Father God…1 Sam 30:3-20]

**        **, greatly beloved, the expression of love, and the measure of love, is obedience. The obedience that characterizes love has as its source the devotion of your heart, and not the obedience that comes from a sense of duty, or the obedience that looks for a resulting personal gain…a reward.  The love My Divine Son Jesus is speaking about is not a feeling of your emotions, nor the knowledge of your mind…it is a sense in the Divine Spirit Who dwells within you…a sense of devotion.  Love willingly goes to the cross… whether it is a physical cross, or whether it is an emotional cross…sweating drops of blood in its human agony of soul, embracing solely, wholly, only, the will of God: “Not my will, Father, but Your will be done.”  Then Jesus said to them all: If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life for himself and his own interests will lose it, but whoever loses his self-life for My sake will save it. Anyone who does not carry his cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple. [Luke 9:23-24; 14:27]

Child of God!  Don’t you yet understand?  I am working out in you a character fit for Heaven and eternity.  The one great mark of that character is absolute surrender to God, to let Me BE ALL and to DO ALL in you.  Of that surrender, a deep humility that only wants to obey and trust and depend upon God is the first essential.  It is only when the soul looks steadily at the really supernatural things God is to do for you and in you and through you, that its faith will rest entirely on the Power of God, and obey at any cost.  Be a sojourner, **        **, in the land of promise…in the life opened up to you by the promises of God…the life in the Holy of Holies, through the Holy Spirit.  A life of faith in the land of promise…in the Holy of Holies..is characterized by a peace that passeth all understanding, a love that passeth knowledge, a power that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all you can ask or think.  Do you hesitate to surrender completely to God because you don’t know what I will ask of you, and are afraid you will not be able to enjoy the things this world has to offer?  But Christ Jesus My Son said: “If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.  For whoever wants to save his life for himself and his own interests will lose it, but whoever loses his self-life for My sake will save it.  Anyone who does not carry his cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple.” [Luke 9:23-24; 14:27]  

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.”

Reckless Love:
