Blessed Jesus…Day after day You pour out Your steadfast Love upon me; night after night Your song is ever with me…a prayer to the God of my life. You are my strength and my song; You are indeed my salvation! [Ps 42:8; Ex 15:2]
6th: THE PILGRIM SPIRIT OF FAITH. Faith makes us pilgrims…strangers and sojourners here on Earth, because my heart is in the homeland which is Heaven.
The steadfast eye of faith
The eye of faith will become ever clearer, seeing perhaps at first, afar off, what so many cannot see…the promise and the reality and the possibility of abiding continually in the Holy Of Holies, in the inaccessible Light of the Glory of the unclouded Presence of my Father in the power of an endless life, separated and made free from the world and its spirit. The boldness of faith will become ever stronger…I shall be wondrously enabled to greet and embrace, wondrously enabled to claim and hold fast, all that God has promised in Christ of a life in the City of the living God here below as my very own. And I shall in patience persevere in doing the will of God, knowing that through the Power of God Himself and the Son of God as surety, I shall indeed receive the promise. True faith begins with counting upon what God has promised, but it does not end there…it leads into the actual possession and enjoyment, in the Power of God, of all I had embraced in His Word. What God has spoken to faith, His hand will perform. God’s promise is ever the expression of what God’s Omnipotence is indeed going to work; my faith must ever be the expression of my joyful expectation and excited anticipation of what God’s Omnipotence will most assuredly work.
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.”
Create in me a clean heart:
