Be strong and take courage!  Do not be afraid; do not worry or become anxious!  For have I not promised?  I will never, never, leave you; I will never, ever, forsake you. Assuredly not! [Father God…Deut 31:6; Heb 13:5]

ETERNAL PROVISION: Gift of My Son.

Abba Father…my eyes are filled with tears of sorrow as I rest my weary head against Your bosom, and bury my face in Your bosom, unable even to lift up my eyes to Heaven as I remember my many, many sins and failures, mistakes and imperfections, of the days and years gone by.  With my hand, I cover my mouth in hushed silence on account of my shame, because You have forgiven me of all that I have ever done through the atoning sacrifice of Your Divine Son Jesus.  You loved me so much that You did not spare Your Own Son, but voluntarily gave Him up for me.  Blessed Jesus, You loved me with an everlasting love, and voluntarily lay down Your life for me, even unto death.  You freed me from my sins by Your Own precious and priceless Blood, and have blotted out the entire record of all the charges proven against me!

Father, I am ashamed because of how reluctant I have been to freely and voluntarily pour out my love for You, by voluntarily laying down my own life on that altar of sacrifice as You have done for me…wholly surrendered unto You, wholly given for the blessings and salvation of souls.  I have been so reluctant to voluntarily become Your bond- slave…which was a choice made in times of old…not out of gratitude but out of love.  But if the servant shall plainly say, “I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go free,” then his master shall bring him to God [the judges as His agents]; he shall bring him to the door or doorpost and shall pierce his ear with an awl; and he shall serve him for life. [Ex 21:5-6]

Abba Father…the Blood of Your Divine Son Jesus envelops my soul…encases my soul…as an impenetrable shield; sin can never again stain my soul.  The Blood of Your Divine Son Jesus has conferred upon me the status of eternal righteousness before You, Father…for my body and my soul have been washed in the Blood of the Lamb, and I am now dressed in the white robes of His Own Righteousness, forever pure and holy in Your sight…without spot or wrinkle or blemish.  And although my inner garments often become soiled with sin, I can continually come before You to acknowledge and confess my sins and failures; You are faithful and just to forgive me for my sins, and You are faithful and just to cleanse me of all unrighteousness.  You wash anew my garments that have been soiled with sin in the Blood of Your Divine Son Jesus, and make them clean again, dazzling and white.  And You wash my feet with pure water…You wash the dust of sin off my feet, enabling me to stand before You in the Holy of Holies, in the inaccessible light of the Glory of Your unclouded Presence.  This is my birthright…by virtue of being born again and adopted into Your Family as a child of the most High God.  Hallelujah!

The Blood of Your Divine Son Jesus has guaranteed and secured my eternal access into the Holy of Holies.  Wherefore, brethren, having now boldness to enter into the Holiest by the Blood of Jesus, by the way which He dedicated for me…a new and living way to God through the veil, that is to say, through the veil of His flesh…I will then without further hesitation or delay draw nigh in fullness of faith; here will I continually abide in the fullness of faith. [Heb 10:19-20, 22]

The Eternal Power and Worth of the Blood of Christ has guaranteed and secured my judicial status of righteousness before God for all time and all eternity.  To Him Who ever loves us and has once for all loosed and freed us from our sins by His Own Blood [Rev 1:5]

The Eternal Power and Worth of the Blood of Christ continually washes my garments whenever they become soiled with sin, and makes them clean again…dazzling and white. Jesus continually washes my feet with pure water, washing the dust of sin from my feet, just as He did for His disciples at that last Passover meal before His crucifixion and death.  They have washed their robes and made them white in the Blood of the Lamb. [Rev 7:14-15]  Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith.. having our bodies washed with pure water. [Heb 10:22]  Jesus answered, “A person who has bathed needs only to wash his feet; his whole body is already clean. [John 13:10] 

The Eternal Power and Worth of the Blood of Christ continually sprinkles my heart from an evil conscience…a conscience that seeks to hold me guilty and condemn me. Let us draw near with a true heart in fullness of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience. [Heb 10:22]

C]  WHY DO I EXIST?

Because there is an Eternal God Who exists.  In the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth.  The Heavens continually declare the magnificent majesty and Glory of God; their measureless expanse continually displays the awesome wisdom and power of His handiwork.  Day after day their silent speech is heard unceasingly throughout the farthest reaches of the Earth; night after night they unveil the fathomless knowledge of the Almighty.

D]  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.  They are perceived and understood in the majesty and Glory of God’s breathtaking Creation handiwork!  So those people who do not believe there is a God have no excuse at all for their blind unbelief.

C]  WHY DO I EXIST?
F]  IS THERE ANY PURPOSE FOR MY LIFE?
E]  WHAT HAPPENS AFTER DEATH?

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.  It is so simple a child can understand it; yet it is so simple that only a child can fully embrace it: Anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.

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 will be after death and for all eternity.

God’s framework in creating Mankind:

F-1]  ETERNAL REASON: Love.  I have loved you with an everlasting Love.

F-2]  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.

F-3]  ETERNAL PLAN: I know the plans I have for you; you are My workmanship, created in Christ Jesus My Son to do the good works I have planned in advance for you to do.  Every day of your life was recorded in My Book before you were born…before you ever began to breathe.

F-4]  ETERNAL PROMISE: I have prepared a promised rest for My children.  No matter what storms of life may be raging…a fierce tempest, whipping the waves into a tumultuous, churning, turmoil…beneath the surface, in the depths of God, all is peaceful and calm, all is tranquil and unruffled.  In the shadow of the Almighty, you will find an unruffled child-like rest for your soul.

F-5]  ETERNAL PROVISION:

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.

The Gift of My Holy Spirit, given to dwell in you…never to leave you, never forsake you…to be the Divine Nature abiding in you Whose Power continually guarantees and secures your capability to live your everyday life: faithful to your solemn marriage vows as the bride of Christ My Son; faithfully within the Holy of Holies and My unclouded Presence in our Sacred Covenant relationship.

F-2]  ETERNAL PURPOSE: Relationship.

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.  How can a grown man be born again, Nicodemus asked?  He certainly cannot enter his mother’s womb and be born a second time!  Jesus replied, I tell you the truth, 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.

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.

E]  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. Do you believe this?  Yes, Lord, Martha replied, I do believe that You are Christ the Messiah, the Son of God, Whom God promised was to come into the world, fulfilling Your promised coming the world has long awaited.

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. 

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, unless one is born again, he cannot be in God’s Kingdom.  You must be born again.

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.”

My Jesus, I love Thee:
