I, Jesus, have sent My angel to announce these things to you in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star. The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” Let everyone who hears say, “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever desires, let him take the free gift of the Water of Life! [Jesus…Rev 22:16-17; Isa 12:3, 55:1-3]
WHY DO I EXIST?
Because there is an Eternal God Who exists.
IS THERE A GOD?
Ever since God created the world, His invisible qualities…both His Eternal Power and His Divine Nature…have been clearly seen.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER DEATH?
Anyone who lives their life believing in Me, though dying a physical death like everyone else, will never actually die at all but will rise to an eternal life together with Me in Heaven.
IS THERE ANY PURPOSE FOR MY LIFE?
The framework for understanding our existence begins with fully embracing in my heart why the Eternal God of the universe Personally formed me in my mother’s womb.
God’s framework in creating Mankind: There are 5 foundational principles underlying human existence…5 principles determined and ordained by God that are the framework for human existence. If you know and understand these 5 principles, you will understand why you exist, what the purpose is for your life, and where you are going, both now and for all eternity.
A] Eternal Reason: Love. I have loved you with an everlasting Love.
B] Eternal Purpose: Relationship. I made you for Myself…in My Own image and likeness…Divinely crafted with the capabilities and capacity to be joined together with the Triune God 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.
Since the Eternal Purpose for my existence is to be joined together with the Triune God in a Sacred Covenant relationship, how do I enter into this relationship? Jesus answered that question in His response to Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council: I tell you the truth, unless one is born again, he cannot be in God’s Kingdom.
Beloved…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.”
C] Eternal Plan: I know the plans I have for you.
D] Eternal Promise: I have prepared a promised rest for My children.
E] Eternal Provision:
The Gift of My Son. I purchased you, by Myself and for Myself, with the Precious and Priceless Blood of My Divine Son Jesus. By virtue of the Eternal Power and the Eternal Worth of His Blood, poured out on your behalf on that cross at Calvary, I have forgiven all the sins of those who will receive Him and believe in His Name. Christ My Son has thereby conferred upon those the judicial status of eternal righteousness in My sight.
Jesus has clearly stated, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. The only way to the Father is through Me. Jesus said to Martha, I Myself am the Resurrection and the Life.
Now this is eternal life: knowing You, Father, the One True Living God, and knowing Jesus Christ Your Son, the Messiah Whom You have sent. God Himself has given this testimony concerning His Son: I have granted you eternal life, and this life is given through union with My Divine Son Jesus. Whoever is joined together with My Son in a living union of oneness possesses that life; whoever is not joined together with My Son in a living union of oneness does not possess that life. I have written this to you so that you who place your trust in Christ My Son will know, beyond the shadow of any doubt, that you do now indeed have eternal life.
The Gift of My Holy Spirit, given to dwell in you…never to leave you, never forsake you.
Eternal Purpose: Relationship. God’s controversy with His children.
I have a controversy with many of My children! Don’t you know; don’t you understand? 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 no… instead, you are like an unfaithful, adulterous wife, having intimacy and love affairs with the world and thereby breaking your marriage vows to God! Your sweetest, most tender affections are not reserved for Me! I am not the choicest, most precious treasure of your heart! You have no longing to linger in My Presence, just sitting at My feet! Yes, I know that you honor Me with your lips…but your heart is far from Me! I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot…not willing to give up your pretension and claim to My Name, yet having too much love for the world to stand steadfast and immovable with Me! I wish you were either one or the other…make up your mind, would you, please! So, because you are lukewarm…neither hot nor cold…I am thoroughly disgusted with you, and am about to spew you out of My mouth! You say, “I am rich; I have acquired wealth and am in need of nothing.” But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked! I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white garments to wear, to cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so your eyes would be opened and you can truly see! Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So, therefore, be earnest, and repent! [Rev 3:15-19]
Abba Father, I stand in the gap before You on behalf of my brothers and sisters who have failed to embrace the truth of Your eternal purpose for their existence, that relationship with God…deep, intimate, intensely personal…is Mankind’s missing crown of glory. Worship…in Spirit and in Truth…is the missing jewel in Christ Your Son’s Royal Diadem. These two foundational principles, the very underlying purposes for Your Creation, are missing…both in the lives of many of Your children, and in the life of many of Your Churches as well. Your Divine Son Jesus interceded before You, Father, on our behalf, in His High Priestly Prayer when He knew His hour had come, “that they all may be one, just as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us.” [John 17:21] Relationship between God and Man, whom You created in Your Own image and Glory, was purposed to be characterized by a soul’s living union of oneness with the Triune God…a oneness that mirrored Your Own relationship with One Another in Your Blessed Holy Trinity. Christ Jesus prayed for Your fulfillment of God’s original intended purpose for the souls of Man.
In our present times, Father, the lives of the vast majority of Your children characterize anything and everything but a living union of oneness with God. There is no concept of Divine marriage, no concept of Sacred Covenant relationship. Christ Jesus Your Son poured out His Own Precious Blood in payment of the price for our redemption, to purchase souls for God from every Tribe and Tongue and People and Nation. You Yourself, Father, did not spare Your Own Son, but gave Him up for us all. Yet we, for our part, are taught to put a few small coins in God’s gumball machine, turn the knob, and out comes our eternal salvation! We take our prize home, tuck it safely away in a drawer to remind us every now and again that we have “fulfilled our goal” of salvation, and proceed to get on with the enjoyment of our life in this world. And yes…we, of course, honor God with some tokens of our time, scheduling You into our otherwise busy worldly lifestyle. Like school-children dutifully going about doing their homework even though all the while their hearts are outside playing, even so we dutifully render to God whatever minimal time is necessary to appease our conscience and satisfy our sense of duty. Divine marriage? Shallow! Sacred Covenant relationship? Superficial! Jesus…our crown of glory? It is missing! God’s Love…so amazing, so Divine, that it demands my soul, my life, my ALL? There are only a small remnant of Your children wholly surrendered unto You, wholly given for the blessings and salvation of souls! Enable me, Father, by the Power of Your indwelling Holy Spirit, to fully embrace Your purposes and thereby be counted part of that remnant!
Abba Father, You have clearly exhorted Your children: But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, My Own purchased, special people, that you may set forth My wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of the One Who called you out of darkness into My marvelous light. Now therefore, if you will obey My voice in truth and keep My Covenant, then you shall be My Own peculiar possession and treasure 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] My place in this Sacred Covenant relationship with our Triune God is to worship You, and enjoy You forever!
Lamentably, Father, worship is the missing jewel in Christ Your Son’s crown of Glory… both in the vast majority of Your churches and in the lives of a vast majority of those who call themselves by Your name. Sunday “worship services” at most churches are merely humanly ordained programs and rigid orders of service that exclude the rule and authority of the Holy Spirit, rather than inviting and welcoming Your reigning Presence. If there are any true worshipers there such as You seek, Father, they merely become frustrated as the Spirit within them that longs to worship God is being quenched. There are very few of Your churches with mid-week prayer services, where Your children gather solely…first of all…to worship God, and then to call on Your great Name and mighty Power in prayer. Many churches have discontinued these prayer meetings altogether, because only a handful of people show up…if any at all. In stark contrast, tens of thousands are drawn to attend a sporting event, filled with a joyful expectation and an excited anticipation…but Jesus the Christ, Who is Glorious in His Majesty, Majestic in Holiness, Awesome in Power, our wonder-working God…does not draw!
Your Divine Son Jesus explained to the Samaritan woman at the well, “The time is coming, and is already here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.” [John 4:23] True worshipers such as You seek, Father, will worship You in Spirit and Truth. There is only a small remnant of Your children who long to live faithfully in that Sacred Covenant relationship with God for which purpose we were created, who seek to become the true worshipers that please You, Father…who desire to be the mirror of the Almighty we were created to be. Father…let Your Blessed Holy Spirit sweep over all Your children and work in each one of us both to will and to do by the Power of Your enabling grace to become part of that holy remnant!
To You, Father, Who sits on the Throne, and to the Lamb, be all praise and honor and Glory and Power, for ever and ever, throughout the eternal ages! The four living beings shouted, “Amen!” And the twenty-four elders fell prostrate before the Throne, and worshiped Him Who sits on the Throne and the Lamb! Hallelujah…for our Lord God Almighty reigns!
Victory in Jesus:
