Every good and perfect gift comes down to me from God my Father. Your gifts, Father, are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light, and You shine forever without change or shadow. By Your Own will You caused me to receive new life through Your Word of Truth, and thereby adopted me as a child of God into Your Own Family. [James 1:17-18]
Why do I exist? Where did I come from? How did I get here? Why am I here? Where am I going; where will I ultimately end up to be? Is there any purpose for my existence…any purpose for my life? Was I just a random occurrence, an accidental happening, an incidental incidence? Was I merely the result of sexual gratification…the natural result of God’s provision for procreation, the result of the physical impulse and gratification of the flesh, the result of a husband’s decision to have children?
Absolutely not! I was personally known, by name, in eternity past, within the Divine counsels of God! Abba Father…You knew me…You saw everything I would ever do, You heard every word I would ever speak, You knew every thought I would ever think. You considered all these things, and then with this full knowledge of all I would ever think or say or do, You consciously and deliberately chose to love me. Your Eternal Reason for creating me was because You loved me. How is this possible; how can this be?
Beloved child…Because I saw who you would become by virtue of the Eternal Power and the Eternal Worth of the Precious and Priceless Blood of My Divine Son Jesus, poured out on your behalf on that cross at Calvary, whereby I have forgiven all the sins of those who will receive Him and believe in His Name, and have blotted out the entire record of charges proven against you. There is nothing written in My Book against your name…just as if you had never sinned! Christ My Son has conferred upon those who will receive Him the judicial status of eternal righteousness in My sight.
Don’t you know? Have you never understood? When I brought you into existence…at the moment of your conception…you were created to have an eternal existence. I saw your eternal existence in its continuous present; in My Omniscience, there is no past nor future; all things to Me are in the continuous present. Therefore, I continually see your endless, eternal existence all at once and at the same time. The years of your life on the face of the Earth are a mere blip on the screen of eternity. Have you never considered? After only a minuscule million years into eternity…one second on eternity’s clock…100 years of life on Earth is only 1/100% of the total time of your existence at that point. Don’t you understand? At that point, those who have received Christ My Son and believed in His Name have been pure and holy and righteous in My sight, without spot or wrinkle or blemish, for 99.99% of your existence! Why would you ever wonder how I could love you? Do you really think I couldn’t love you because for just .01% of your existence [in the first million years of eternity] you were not holy as I am holy, not perfect as I am perfect?
And it was I, the God of all Creation, Who determined the day, the hour, and the year I would bring you into existence. I had determined where on the face of the Earth you would be born; I determined who your human parents would be, whether by Personally causing them to be your parents, or by specifically, consciously, and deliberately allowing them to be so.
I created 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…the very crown jewels of My Creation. From eternity past, I have known the plans I have for you…the good works 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! Every day of your eternal existence in its 3 phases were determined by Me and recorded in My book. Phase One: life in the physical realm of the womb before birth; Phase Two: life in the physical realm on the face of the Earth after birth; Phase Three: life in the spiritual realm of Heaven…upon being born-again…for the eternal unfolding ages, forever and ever without end. And nothing on the face of the Earth…no circumstances, events, or things…nor anyone on the face of the Earth, can thwart My plans, nor hinder My purposes, nor override My will…absolutely nothing. Nothing in the heavens above can thwart My plans, nor hinder My purposes, nor override My will…absolutely nothing. And nothing in the spirit realm…neither angelic principalities nor powers of this dark world, nor the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms…can thwart My plans, or hinder My purposes, or override My will… absolutely nothing.
Beloved…the only way you can enter into and embrace My Eternal Purpose for bringing you into existence…the only way…is through Spiritual birth: born-again…a second time…by the Spirit of God into the spiritual realm. I tell you the truth, unless one is born again, he cannot be in God’s Kingdom. 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.
Abba Father…You have Personally brought me into existence, and placed me here on the face of this Earth to do Your work and to do Your will. A body You have prepared for me, suited for being engaged in the plans You have ordained from eternity past for me. I am Your workmanship, created in Christ Jesus Your Son to do the good works You have Personally planned in advance for me to do. You knit me together in my mother’s womb…tailor-made, custom-made…with the specific capabilities, capacities, and faculties that would be necessary for me to do the things You planned for me to do.
Therefore, when Christ Your Son came into the world, He said: Sacrifice and offering You have not desired; instead You have prepared a body for Me to offer. With burnt offerings and sin offerings You have taken no delight. Then I said, Here I am, I have come to do Your will, O God…to fulfill what is written of Me in the Scroll. When He said just before, You have neither desired, nor have You taken delight in sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings…all of which are offered according to the Law…He then went on to say, Behold, Here I am, I delight to do Your will, O my God; yes, Your law is within my heart. Thus Christ Jesus does away with and annuls the former first order as a means of making atonement for sin…the Old Covenant…so that He might inaugurate and establish the second, latter order of doing so…the New Covenant. And in accordance with this will of God, we have been made holy…consecrated and sanctified…through the offering made once for all of the body of Christ Jesus the Anointed One. [Heb 10:5-10; Ps 40:6-8]
Therefore, Abba Father, the allotted time You have Personally ordained for me on the face of this Earth, and the plans formulated for me and recorded in Your Book, belong absolutely and entirely to You. It is my sole place and desire, Father, to do only what You show me to do; to only present the thoughts and speak the words You give me to speak and present. It is my sole place and desire, Father, to embrace the same mind in me that was in Your Divine Son Jesus while on the face of this Earth: I have come…not to do My will, but the will of the One Who sent Me. I only do what My Father shows Me to do; I only speak the words My Father gives Me to speak.
Here, in summary, is the full spectrum of God’s intention for Mankind’s existence:
- God is Love.
- My reason for creating you is Love.
- My purpose in creating you is relationship; I made you for Myself.
- I provided the way for an eternal Sacred Covenant relationship with Me.
- I adopted you into My Family, as My Own child.
- I, God the Father, am your Father; you are My child…the apple of My eye.
- Jesus, God the Son, is your spiritual Husband; you are the spiritual bride of Christ.
- Christ Jesus is also your Savior, your Lord, your brother.
- God the Holy Spirit is your Master; you are His bond-servant.
- Heaven is your eternal home.
- I have eternal plans for you during your allotted time on Earth.
- I have prepared a promised rest for you…both now on Earth & eternally in Heaven.
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.”
