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, or When I send a plague among my people [as is happening even now worldwide]…the people of the world learn righteousness. Though You showed 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. [Isa 26:10; 2 Chron 7:13]
I stand in awe of our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father. I stand in awe of the Prince of Peace, Great I AM, King of kings and Lord of lords. I stand in awe of the Faithful Witness, the First born from among the dead, the Ruler of the kings of the Earth. I stand in awe of the One Whose eyes are like blazing fire, Whose feet are as burnished bronze, the One out of Whose mouth comes a sharp, double-edged sword…quick and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword…piercing, even to the dividing asunder of the soul and spirit, even to the dividing asunder of the joints and marrow. [Isa 9:6; Ex 3:14; Rev 1:5, 14-16]
WHY DO I EXIST? Because there is an Eternal God Who exists.
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:
- Eternal Reason: I have loved you with an everlasting Love.
- Eternal Purpose: I made you for Myself.
- Eternal Plan: I know the plans I have for you.
- Eternal Promise: I have prepared a promised rest for My children.
- Eternal Provision: The Gift of My Son; The Gift of My Holy Spirit.
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.
When I was dead in my sins and in the uncircumcision of my sinful nature, God made me alive with Christ. He forgave me all my sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against me and that stood opposed to me; He took it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. [Col 2:13-15]
What, then, shall I say in response to this? If God is for me, who can be against me? He Who did not spare His Own Son, but gave Him up for us all…how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give me all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God Who justifies! Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, Who died…more than that, Who was raised to life…is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for me! Who shall separate me from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution, famine, nakedness, danger, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things I am more than a conqueror through Him Who loved me! For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all Creation, shall be able to separate me from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus my Lord. [Rom 8:31-39]

Hallelujah! Glorious, Marvelous, Grace that rescues me; Holy, Worthy, is the Lamb Who died for me! Yes, You paid the ransom with Your Own precious, priceless blood, Lord Jesus…the ransom that released me from sin’s death row, where I was being held prisoner until that Day of the final judgment and the doom of eternal death! You purchased me as Your Own, Father, with the very Blood of Your Own dear Son! Even more, to my ecstatic wonder You then adopted me into Your very Family as Your Own dear child… Your child forever I am! Now, my Father, I thank You with all my soul, and praise Your Glorious Name forever and ever! Hallelujah! Glory to God in the Highest! Hallelujah! Worthy, Worthy, Worthy is the Lamb! 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.”
Oh, The Glory of Your Presence:
