Listen! This is what I, the Lord, say…the Maker of the Earth and all that is on it; the Lord Who formed it and established it. THE LORD is My Name. Call upon Me, and I will answer you, and show you wonderful and unsearchable things you do not know. [Triune God…Jer 33:2-4]
ETERNAL RELATIONSHIP: Entering into this relationship
Abba Father…You made it unmistakenly clear in Your Word…Your Divine seed that You plant in the heart of every soul whom You bring into existence: To all who receive Him, to all those who believe in His Name, You gave them the right to become children of God… children born of God…born-again, born a second time through the new life conceived within by Your Holy Spirit, born into the Family of God, children of God by birth and by Blood. Abba Father…I am Your child, by birth and by Blood; You are my Father and my God! I bear Your spiritual DNA in my soul!
Blessed Jesus…You made it unmistakenly clear in Your Word: I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. The only way to the Father is through Me. I tell you the truth, unless one is born again, he cannot be in God’s Kingdom. No one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless he is 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.
Lord Jesus…to all those who believe in Your Name, You gave them the right to become children of God…assuredly, to all those who believe in their heart that You are Christ the Messiah, the Divine Son in the Triune God, Whom God promised was to come into the world, fulfilling Your promised coming the world had long awaited; the sacrificial Lamb of God Who came into this world to become the One only, all-sufficient, atoning sacrifice through Your death on a cross and subsequent resurrection, thereby securing forgiveness for my sins and restoring my relationship with God that had been severed by sin. Believing this in my heart is the absolutely necessary starting point…I can go no further in entering into a Sacred Covenant relationship with God apart from embracing this in my heart.
Believing Who You are and what You have done on my behalf is not enough…not at all. Do I hear you professing to believe in the one and only God, but then observe you complacently sitting back as if you had done something wonderful? Do you still think believing is enough? Well, even the demons believe this…and they tremble in terror! [James 2:19] No…it is to all who also receive You that You give the right to become children of God. Receiving You is not as a theological concept, or by saying a prayer. Receiving You is by making a solemn vow before God to give myself to be Your bride…the bride of Christ, receiving You, blessed Jesus, into my life in a divine and spiritual marriage, promising to honor and obey You as both Lord over my life and Savior of my soul; a solemn vow to have and to hold You, above all others and above all else this world has to offer, as the choicest, most precious treasure of my heart; a solemn vow to love and to cherish You, above all others and above all else this world has to offer, reserving for You alone my sweetest, most tender affections…for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, all the days of my life, until death of my body brings me to be together with You in Heaven for all eternity. At that moment in time when I give the consent of my will to make a solemn vow before God in giving myself to be Your bride, the bride of Christ…that is the moment when fertilization takes place, at which time I am joined inseparably together with You, blessed Jesus, in a Sacred Covenant relationship…an eternal living union of oneness through the new life both conceived and born in me through the Power of the Holy Spirit: the Holy Spirit will sweep over you and the Power of the Most High will overshadow you. A distinct and uniquely new life comes into existence. I am born again, this time into the spiritual realm… born into the Family of God in the Kingdom of God. I am now a child belonging to the Royal Family of God; I became a child of God by birth! God Himself is therefore my Father, and I bear His spiritual DNA in my soul! I am literally a new creation…not in the physical realm, where I already exist…but now in the spiritual realm, where prior to this I did not exist!
I am a child of God, adopted by birth into the Family of God;
I am joined together with the Triune God in a Sacred Covenant relationship;
God the Father is my Father;
God the Son…Christ Jesus…is my spiritual Husband; I am the bride of Christ.
Jesus is also my Savior, my Lord, and my Brother.
God the Holy Spirit is my Master; I am His servant.
Heaven is my eternal home;
Every day brings me one day nearer to my eternal home;
Everyone born into the Family of God is also my brother/sister.
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.”
