Then the angel showed me the river of the Water of Life, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the Throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the Tree of Life with their twelve varieties of fruit, yielding each month its fresh crop. And the leaves of the Trees are for the healing of the nations. [John…Rev 22:1-2]
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]
ETERNAL PURPOSE: RELATIONSHIP: The Heart of God My Father For His Child.
Abba Father…Here am I, Your child. I’ve come running to You, with a reckless abandon, as I just climb up on Your lap, curl up in Your loving arms, and rest my weary head against Your bosom…as You embrace me, kiss me, and hold me close to Your bosom, reassuring me so lovingly, so tenderly, so affectionately…
**________**, beloved…I love you. You are My child, and I am your Father and your God. I take great pleasure in you; you’re the apple of My eye. So be comforted and be reassured of My unfailing love for you. I rejoice over you with singing. My heart delights in you, and I long to fill you with all My fullness…with all the fullness of God. I long to pour all of My Blessedness and all of My Goodness into you, to have this intimate fellowship with you that we have, and to become ever more one with you, just as We are One with One Another in Our Blessed Holy Trinity. You are a good boy/girl, **________**, and I am well-pleased with you…not because you are without sins and failures, without mistakes and imperfections. No, beloved, I know you are but a child…laden with sins and failures, laden with mistakes and imperfections. Even so, you are good in My sight and I am well-pleased with you…because you have set your heart to trust in Me with an unwavering trust; you have set your heart to depend upon Me with an unreserved child-like dependence; you have set your heart to obey My will, and to accept My will, with an unquestioning child-like obedience. These are the things that define you as a good child, and make you to be well-pleasing to Me. Don’t you understand, beloved? A child melts his/her Father’s heart…you melt My heart…when you just come to Me, climb up on My lap, curl up in My arms, and rest your little head against My bosom. That melts a Father’s heart, because it is a child’s way of expressing absolute trust, absolute dependence, unquestioning obedience. It is all that a Father would ever need, or want, or desire of His child.
And so, beloved child…rest your little head against My bosom, and close your little eyes. Drift off to sleep here in My arms in an unruffled child-like rest. Abide here with Me with an unclouded child-like carefree joy. Don’t you worry, don’t you fret. Don’t be anxious or afraid. Trust in Me with all your heart, and don’t lean on your own wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. Watch for Me and wait before Me; look off unto Me and listen for My voice. Acknowledge Me in this way, and I will lead you and guide you by My Holy Spirit. He will place you where you are to be, lead you where you are to go, show you what you are to do to participate together with Me in My plans, My purposes, My will for you. He will give you the thoughts you are to think and to present, the words you are to speak or to write. He will direct your paths…if you would only trust your heart to Me. I will watch over that heart of yours and keep it safe, if only you would just trust Me with it. So don’t be disappointed, don’t be discouraged; don’t be disheartened or disillusioned. Don’t be downcast, down-trodden, distraught, dismayed, or distressed. Don’t lament over the past, or be anguished about the present, or agonize over the future. You needn’t be angry, upset, frustrated, irritated, or annoyed. And don’t become impatient, or grow weary of waiting. I know the plans I have for you…plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. You are My workmanship, created in Christ Jesus My Son to do good works…works that I Myself 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. So be still, and know that I AM your Father and your God!
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.”
