Lord God Almighty, when Your judgments come upon the Earth…When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or when I command locusts to devour the land [as is happening right now in Kenya: https://www.bbc.com/news/in-pictures-51618188] or when I send a plague among my people [as is happening even now worldwide…the people of the world learn righteousness. Though You show grace to the wicked, even so, they still did not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they continue going on doing evil, and regard not the Majesty of the Lord. Even so, if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. [Isa 26:10; 2 Chron 7:13-15]
Heaven is My throne, and the Earth is My footstool. Has not My hand created all these things, and so everything in them are Mine? These are the ones whom I esteem: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, who obediently revere My words and stand in awe of all I say. [Triune God…Isa 66:1-2]
ETERNAL PROMISE: MY PROMISED REST. Sheltered in My Father’s Arms
Beloved…you are My child, in whom I am well-pleased. I love you with a fathomless love; you are the apple of My eye. I take great pleasure in you, ** **. Come, abide with Me in the shelter of the Most High…here in the Holy of Holies, in My unclouded Presence within the Heavenly Sanctuary, where you will find your home and your resting place in the shadow of the Almighty, sheltered in My loving arms. I am your Refuge and your Fortress, your God and Father, in Whom you may trust with an unwavering child-like trust, and in Whom you may continually be at rest in an unruffled child-like rest. In My loving arms, ** **, you will find rest for your soul; all shall be peaceful and calm, tranquil and unruffled.
Surely, My beloved child, I shall deliver you from the hidden traps and from deadly hazards. I shall cover you with My pinions, and under My wings you shall abide with Me and find refuge. You will be safe in My care; My truth and My faithfulness will protect and defend you. You need not be afraid of any terror of the night, nor the sudden evil attacks of the enemy during the day, nor of any dreaded diseases that stalk in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death of disasters that surprise and lay waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, ** **, and ten thousand at your right hand…but these evils will not touch you! Safe and secure in the secret place of the Most High, you will be only a spectator as you witness the recompense of the wicked.
Because you have made Me your refuge, ** **, and the Most High your dwelling place, there shall no evil befall you, nor any plague or calamity come near your dwelling place. For I give My angels special charge over you, to accompany, defend, and preserve you in all your ways of obedience and service. They will steady you with their hands, and keep you from stumbling against the rocks on the pathway. You can safely meet a lion or step on poisonous snakes; you will walk unharmed among them…yes, even trample them beneath your feet!
Because you have set your love upon Me, ** **, therefore will I deliver you. I will set you on high, because you know and understand My Name through our deep and intimate Sacred Covenant relationship. Because you are My beloved child, You shall call upon Me and I will answer you; I will be with you in trouble, I will deliver you and honor you. With long life will I satisfy you and show you My salvation.
Precious child…the Day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire. Since everything on the Earth will be destroyed in this way, ** **, live a holy and godly life as you look forward to that coming Day! Everyone who has this hope purifies himself, just as Christ Jesus My Son is pure. Beloved…continually wash your robes in the Blood of Jesus as you look forward to His imminent return; wash your garments that have been soiled with sin, making them clean again, dazzling and white. Wash your feet with pure water; wash the dust of sin off your feet. Blessed are you who wash your robes, that you may have the right to enter through the gates into the City and eat the fruit from the Tree of Life! Continually and diligently do these things, that you may always abide with Me in the Holy of Holies, in the inaccessible Light of the Glory of My unclouded Presence. My child…this is your birth-right!
Blessed Jesus…thank You for so wonderfully encouraging me, “Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold on to what you have, ** **, so that no one will deprive you of your crown. Everyone who overcomes by means of their faith I will make a pillar in the Temple of My God. Never again will you leave it! I will write on you the Name of My God and the name of the City of My God…the new Jerusalem…which is coming down out of Heaven from My God. And I will also write on you My Own new Name.”
Abba Father…You are a shield around me; You bestow glory on me, and lift up my head. To You I cry aloud…and You answer me from Your Holy hill. I lie down and sleep in peace; I awaken again in the morning, because You sustain me. I will not fear even tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side! For have You not promised? I will never, never, leave you; I will never, ever, forsake you! Assuredly not! O Lord, You are my Help; of whom shall I be afraid? What can man do to me? Thank You, Father, for giving me a good night sleep. Thank You for bringing me safely through the night. Thank You for being my shield and my protector…for watching over me, protecting me, and keeping me safe. Thank You especially for keeping me safe from those temptations and sins that so easily beset me; I am so grateful. Father, I realize…I acknowledge…my sin-enslaved human nature has no power to stand against these temptations and sins. My human nature is a prisoner of sin, held captive by sin, in bondage to sin, enslaved by sin; it is hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless to do anything that is good or pleasing or acceptable to You. But Your Divine Son Jesus has set me eternally free from the penalty for sin, and He has set me free from the power of sin!
Blessed Jesus…by virtue of the Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of Your Blood, which You poured out on my behalf on that cross at Calvary for the forgiveness of my sins, there is now no condemnation for those of us who are joined together with You in a living union of oneness as Your bride…the bride of Christ! O death…where now is your victory? Where now is your sting? The sting that causes eternal death is sin…and sin gets its power and authority to cause death from the Law. For it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the Book of the Law, to do them;” and “The wages of sin is eternal death.”
But thanks be to You, Father…You have given me the victory over both sin and death through Christ Jesus You Son! In Him, You have given me the free gift of eternal life…for the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has set me forever free from the Law of sin and death! You have called me out of darkness into You marvelous Light; You have transferred me out of the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of Light! I am no longer a citizen of this world, no longer under the jurisdiction of the law of this world… the law of sin and death. I am a citizen of Heaven, and as such I am under the jurisdiction of the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus! Hallelujah!
Precious Jesus…the Eternal Power and Eternal Worth of Your Blood has guaranteed and secured that the Eternal Holy Spirit was indeed given as God’s Eternal gift to dwell in me…never to leave me, never to forsake me. He is the Power of the Divine nature now abiding in me Who continually guarantees and secures my capability to live my everyday life: faithful to my solemn marriage vows as the bride of Christ in our divine marriage; faithfully within the Holy of Holies in the inaccessible Light of the Glory of Your unclouded Presence, Father, in our Sacred Covenant relationship.
Sovereign Holy Spirit…You are my strength! You make my feet like hinds feet; You give me strength and courage to walk along my high places…places of trouble, and hardship, and responsibility. In Your Power, I can say to that mountain, “Who are you, O mighty impassable mountain of human obstacles! You shall become a level plain, a mere mole hill! Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea! Who are you, O great impenetrable wall of human obstacles! You shall become a garden border, a mere stepping stool! Spirit of the Living God…in Your Power, I can climb a mountain, I can scale a wall; my hands can bend a bow of bronze! I can do all things given me to do through Christ Jesus…Who strengthens me! Hallelujah!
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.”
When I survey the wondrous cross:
