Abba Father…I love the house where You live, O Lord…the place where Your Glory dwells. How lovely is Your dwelling place, Lord God Almighty! My soul yearns…even pines away and is homesick…for Your courts. My heart and my flesh cry out, and sing for joy to You, the living God! [Ps 26:8; 84:2]
ABRAHAM: THE OBEDIENCE OF FAITH
Obedience is the very life of faith, and the only way into a deep and intimate personal relationship with God. It is impossible to receive God without also receiving His will.
A sojourner in the land of promise
Wherever God calls me, I am to persevere, every day, continually, with the unquestioning child-like obedience of faith, as God continually brings me into an ever closer and deeper communion with Himself. I will become, like Abraham, God’s tested and trusted friend… a child of God who lives only to honor Him.
Life in the Holy of Holies
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 I could even imagine. This is the life that Christ Jesus secured for me through His Blood, the life that is my birth-right as a child of the Most High God! This is the life that Christ Jesus guarantees for me as Mediator of the New Covenant, and as High Priest forever after the order of Melchizedek, in the Power of His Own endless life. Wherefore, brethren, having now boldness to enter into the Holy of Holies by the Blood of Jesus, let us then draw nigh in fullness of faith, here let us continually abide in the fullness of faith. [Heb 10 19, 22]
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.”
He walks with me and He talks with me:
