Peace I leave with you; My Own peace I now give to you.  My peace is a gift such as the world cannot give.  Do not let your heart be troubled, and do not be afraid.  I have told you these things so that in union with Me you may have peace.  In this world you will have many trials and sorrows; but take heart!  I have overcome the world.  Do not let your heart be troubled.  Trust in God your Father; trust also in Me.  There are many dwelling places in My Father’s House.  I am going there to prepare a place for you; I would not tell you this if it were not so.  When everything is ready, I will come back and take you to be with Me, and you will then forever be with Me where I am. [Jesus…John 14:27; 16:33; 14:1-3]

Relationship with God: Mirror of the Blessed Holy Trinity

My beloved child…My Divine Son Jesus interceded before Me on your behalf in His High Priestly Prayer when He knew His hour had come, “that they all may be one, just as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us.”  Relationship between God and Man, whom I created in My Own image and Glory, was purposed to be characterized by your living union of oneness with the Triune God…a oneness that mirrored Our Own relationship with One Another.  Christ My Son interceded on your behalf for the fulfillment of My original intended purpose for the souls of Man:

  • Father…My prayer is not for My disciples only.  I pray also for all those who will believe in Me through their message…
  • that they all may be one in Us in a Sacred Covenant relationship and with one another…
  • just as You are in Me and I am in You in Our Triune Godhead.
    May they also be one in Us in a Sacred Covenant relationship…
  • so that the world may believe that You have sent Me.  
  • I have given them the glory You gave Me…
  • that they may be one in Us in a Sacred Covenant relationship…
  • even as We are One in Our Triune Godhead: I Myself joined together with them in a Sacred Covenant relationship, and You in Me in Our Triune Godhead.
  • May they be brought to complete unity in Us and with one another…
  • to let the world know that You sent Me and have loved them even as You have loved Me.
  • I have made You known to them, Father, and will continue to make You known…
  • in order that the love You have for Me may be in them…
  • and that I Myself may be joined together with them in a Sacred Covenant relationship. [John 17:20-23, 26]

Jesus spoke to His Disciples, “After a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; because I live, you also will live.  In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.  If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make our home and dwelling place within him. [John 14:19-21; 23-24] 

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a special possession, purchased by Myself and for Myself, that you may declare My praises…the praises of the One Who called you out of darkness into My marvelous light!  Now therefore, if you will obey My voice in truth and be careful to keep My covenant, then you shall be My Own treasured possession, from among and above all peoples…for all the Earth is Mine.  And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests, a holy nation… consecrated and set apart to the worship of God.” [1 Peter 2:9; Ex 19:5-6]

Wherefore, brethren…having now boldness to enter into the Holy of Holies by the Eternal Power of the Blood of Jesus, and through the Eternal Power of the indwelling Holy Spirit… let us then draw nigh in fullness of let us continually abide in the fullness of faith.

Relationship with God the Father: Father/child

To all who received Him, to those who believed in His Name, He gave the right to become children of God…children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God!  How great is the love the Father has lavished upon us, that we should be called children of God!  And that is who we are!  Do not call anyone on Earth “father,” for you have one Father, and He is in Heaven!  Therefore, says the Lord, “Come out from among them and be separate.  Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.  I will be a Father to you, and you will be My sons and daughters,” says the Lord Almighty.  I Myself said, “How gladly would I treat you like sons and give you a desirable land, the most beautiful inheritance of any nation.  I thought you would call Me ‘Father’ and not turn away from following Me!” [John 1:11-13; 1 John 3:1; Matt 23:8-10; 2 Cor 6:17-18; Jer 3:19]

Relationship with God the Son: Husband/wife

I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy.  I promised you to one Husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to Him. [2 Cor 11:2]

“In that day,” declares the Lord, “You will call Me ‘my husband;’ you will no longer call Me ‘my master.’  I will betroth you to Me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion.  I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the Lord.  For your Maker is your Husband…the Lord of hosts is His name…and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; the God of the whole Earth He is called.” [Hos 2:16, 19-20; Isa 54:5]

Hallelujah!  For our Lord God Almighty reigns!  Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him Glory!  For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready.  Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints).  Then the angel said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!'”  And he added, “These are the true words of God.” [Rev 19:6-9]

Relationship with God the Holy Spirit: Master/servant

Abba Father…You created me with a free will…that I might freely, of my own free will, lay down my free will in absolute surrender…wholly surrendered unto You…on the altar of sacrifice as a burnt offering, “Not my will, but Thy will be done.”  On that day, Blessed Holy Spirit, I have freely given my life to You as Your bond-slave…forever.  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]  And you shall [earnestly] remember that you were a bondman in the land of Egypt and the Lord your God redeemed you; therefore I give you this command today.  But if the servant says to you, “I will not go away from you,” because he loves you and your household, since he does well with you, then take an awl and pierce his ear through to the door, and he shall be your bond-servant for life.  And also to your bondwoman you shall do likewise. [Deut 15:15-17] 

No one can be a bond-slave to two masters at the same time; for either he will lovingly serve the one in deference over the other, or he will give devoted loyalty to the one and utterly disregard the wishes of other.  You cannot wholeheartedly serve God above all others and at the same time pursue the things this world has to offer. [Matt 6:24] 

Blessed Holy Spirit…I have freely given myself to You as Your bond-slave.  As such, I no longer have any possessions of my own.  I have no plans of my own.  I have no privileges.  I have no expectations, no rights, no honor.  I have no time of my own, no desires of my own heart, no purposes of my own for my life.  All of my motives, my attitudes, my dispositions are subservient to You.  Blessed Jesus…I have no affections for the people of this world nor the things this world has to offer that compete with my affections for You.  I have reserved for You alone my sweetest, most tender affections.  I have no attractions to the people of this world nor the things this world has to offer that compete with my attraction to You.  You are the choicest, most precious treasure of my heart.  I am wholly Yours, and You are wholly mine.

The Holy Spirit is my comforter and my counselor, through Whom I have been joined together in a living union of oneness with Christ Jesus my Lord; the Spirit of God Who dwells in me and has promised never to leave me, never to forsake me; the One Who works in me both to will and to do…both the desire to obey my Father’s will, and the power to do His will.  It is the Holy Spirit Who places me where I am to be, leads me where I am to go, shows me what I am to do to participate together with Him in His work, gives me the thoughts I am to think and present, the words I am to speak or write.

Then Jesus, full of and controlled by the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Holy Spirit into the desert. [Luke 4:1]

You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you.  And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ.  Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.  For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons/daughters of God. [Rom 8:9, 5, 14]

Now when Paul and his companions had traveled throughout the region of Phrygia and Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia.  When they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the Spirit did not permit them.  So they passed by Mysia and went down to Troas.  During the night Paul had a vision of a man of Macedonia standing and begging him, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.”  After Paul had seen the vision, we got ready at once to leave for Macedonia, concluding that the Lord had called us to preach the gospel to them. [Acts 16:6-10]

The Spirit told Philip, “Go to that chariot and stay near it.”  Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet.  “Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked. [Acts 8:29-30]

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, [], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
