My beloved child…the allotted time I have given you to exist in the physical realm at the moment of your conception is My most precious gift. And the eternal purpose for the time I have given was for you to be engaged in the plans I have ordained for you…to do the good works I Myself have planned in advance for you to do. Time does not belong to you; it belongs to Me, and I will hold you accountable for how you have spent your time. You cannot become part of My holy remnant without being willing to lay your entire life on the altar of sacrifice…to be wholly surrendered unto God, wholly given for the blessings and salvation of souls.
I created humankind for Myself, Divinely crafted in My Own image and likeness, with the capability and capacity of having a deep and intimate personal relationship with Me…to be joined together with the Triune God in a Sacred Covenant relationship, a living union of oneness. This sets you apart, beloved, from every other of My created beings.
** **, are you so slow to understand? I created mankind with a free will… free to choose to enter into this Sacred Covenant relationship with Me, embracing My Eternal Purpose for creating you. And free to choose to reject or ignore this relationship and My Eternal Purpose…to do whatever you want, whatever you desire; free to go your own way, to do your own thing; free to pursue your own goals, your own desires, your own purposes; free to spend your time on whatsoever you will. I laid aside My Sovereignty as your Creator to determine the course of your life, and gave you absolute sovereignty to determine the course of your own life.
Therefore, beloved child of God, have you never embraced this? The only act of worship on your part that is acceptable to Me, that is pleasing to Me…which must be first of all before any other worship or sacrificial offering…is to take the free will I have given you and freely, of your own free will, lay it on the altar of sacrifice in absolute surrender, and say from your heart, “Not my will, but Thy will be done.” Giving your free will back to God is the only thing you can give Me, ** **, that I don’t already have… because I had freely given it to you in the first place in Creation. The supreme expression of worship is spending your allotted time solely and only, wholly and always, on things that have eternal value, eternal worth, eternal purpose. If you don’t worship Me in this manner, then none of your “worship” is good or pleasing or acceptable to Me. You would be guilty of honoring Me with your lips, but your heart is far from Me; it is a stench in My nostrils!
Christ Jesus My Son has dedicated the way, by Personal example, for you to follow in His footsteps. You must walk along the Path He walked; it is the Path of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial, death to sin and death to self. It is there in Gethsemane’s Garden that you find the Path that leads up to the Gate, which opens into the Heavenly Sanctuary and the Holy of Holies…into My unclouded Presence. It is the only Path that leads up to the Gate, which bears on its header the inscription THY WILL BE DONE. No one can pass through until they first surrender their own free will there to the Gate-keeper. Beloved…you walk along that Path and enter through that Gate solely and only by faith. The way into the Holy of Holies is so simple, a child can understand it. It is so simple, though, that only a child-like faith can embrace it and enter in…through your unwavering child-like trust in Me, your unreserved child-like dependence upon Me, and your unquestioning child-like obedience to, and acceptance of, My will. Anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it. [Jesus…Luke 18:16-17; Matt 18:3-4; 19:14]
Wherefore, My beloved child, having now boldness to enter into the Holy of Holies by the Blood of Christ Jesus My Son, by the way which He dedicated for you, a new and living way to God through the veil, that is to say, through the veil of your flesh…do not hesitate then to draw nigh in fullness of faith; continually abide here with Me in the fullness of faith. Those who abide in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
Beloved child…have you never understood? My eternal purpose for your existence is for you to be joined together with Me in a Sacred Covenant relationship…a deep and intimate personal relationship. This is the deepest desire of My heart. Your highest privilege as a soul created in My image and likeness is to enter into this relationship and become My son/daughter…a child of the Most High God! You enter into My eternal purpose for you through being born into the spiritual realm by supernatural means…that is, by being born anew of the Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit comes upon you, and the Power of the Most High overshadows you. You are thereby born again of the Spirit, and become a child of the Most High God: [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/]. I Myself am your Father!
You have entirely fulfilled My purpose for your existence by coming away with Me to our trysting place faithfully every day, where we can just be alone to commune together. The most intense desire of My heart is that you would look forward with an unclouded child-like carefree joy to spending this time together with Me. It is there during our times together that I pour all of My Blessedness and all of My Goodness into you, where we have intimate fellowship together, where I reveal Myself ever more deeply to you and become ever more one with you, even as We are One with One Another in Our Blessed Holy Trinity. My desire is that you abide with Me in My unclouded Presence throughout all the days of your life on Earth, and thereafter with Me in Heaven for all eternity.
Blessed Jesus, You have made it perfectly clear, “If anyone would come after Me…you must deny your self will and take up your cross daily and follow Me. For whoever wants to save one’s life for their self and their own interests will lose it, but whoever loses their self-life for My sake will save it. Anyone who does not carry their cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple.” [Luke 9:23-24; 14:27]
Abba Father, it is solely and only my own will…the will of my sin-enslaved human nature…that prevents me from entering into the Holy of Holies, and abiding with You there. And only Your Holy Spirit can work in me the desire to lay aside my own will. Only Your Holy Spirit can work in me the desire to rent the veil of my flesh in two, from top to bottom, and enable me to walk through the Gate that opens into the Heavenly Sanctuary…that Gate that bears on its header the inscription THY WILL BE DONE, wherein lies the Holy of Holies.
Blessed Holy Spirit…You alone are the Divine source of strength that works in me both the desire and the power to walk along the path that Jesus walked in the Garden that night…the only path leading up to the Gate that opens into the Heavenly Sanctuary wherein lies the Holy of Holies. It is the path of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial, death to sin and death to self…the way that Jesus dedicated for me…the new and living way to God, through the veil, the veil of my flesh that hangs in front of the entrance into the Holy of Holies and forbids access into the unclouded Presence of my Father. The path that Jesus dedicated for me…the path He Personally walked as my Forerunner…leads up to the Gate that bears on its header the inscription THY WILL BE DONE. No one can pass through the Gate and enter into the Heavenly Sanctuary, wherein lies the Holy of Holies, until I first surrender my own free will there to the Gate-keeper. Jesus Himself, by virtue of the Eternal Power and the Eternal Worth of His Blood poured out on my behalf on that cross at Calvary, rent the veil in two, from top to bottom…that veil that hung in front of the entrance into the Holy of Holies prohibiting entrance into the Presence of God, under penalty of death. By virtue of the rent veil of His Own flesh…the offering of His will unto death on the altar of sacrifice in obedience to the Father…He guaranteed and secured my eternal access into the Holy of Holies and the inaccessible Light of the Glory of my Father’s unclouded Presence, as my birth-right.
Abba Father…I freely lay my life on the altar of sacrifice, giving You free reign over the course and direction of my life on Earth. As such, I no longer have any possessions of my own; all that I have belongs to You. I have no plans of my own; I am here to do Your will. I have no privileges, no expectations, no rights, no honor; I am Your bond-servant. My time belongs entirely to You, I have no desires of my own heart, no purposes of my own for my life. You are Lord of my life, and I live wholly surrendered to Your plans, Your purposes, Your will. All of my motives, my attitudes, my dispositions are subservient to You. Blessed Jesus…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 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 am wholly Yours, and You are wholly mine…wholly surrendered unto God, wholly given for the blessing and salvation of souls.
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
This is where I stand. I don’t know why God has been exhorting me to continually warn the brethren to be prepared with a supply of food and necessities…but I am not giving up my own provisions at this point in time. I am holding on, and I will wait and see what takes place. And so I continue to encourage you…make provision for the physical sustenance of your family and yourself [refer to https://preservechristianfamily.org/2017/02/26/brace-yourself-prepare/]. A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep on going, and suffer for it. [Proverbs 22:3]
The Lord always warns His holy remnant beforehand, so that they will always be prepared and never taken by surprise like the unbelievers and the lukewarm. Make provision for yourself and your family materially, spiritually, and emotionally NOW for what the Lord is warning will take place so as to not be overwhelmed by a severe scarcity of goods, and thereby spiral into debilitating emotional depression!
You need to be prepared and available as a minister of the Lord to a dying world: Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the Word of life. [Phil 2:14-16] We have been raised up by the Lord for such a time as this!
I still hold to the Spirit’s words of warning: “Brace yourself, and tell others that I have warned them to brace themselves, for they are about to see even more shocking things. Ready or not, Nation, here it comes! Brace yourself on My Word and on My promises, and do not rely on your own strength. Do not stop bracing yourselves, and don’t look back; the storm will not pass until I, the Lord, stop the storm! Those who refuse to get ready will be wanting in the end.”
But if the watchman sees the danger coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people, and the sword comes and takes the life of even one of them, that one will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood. [Ezek 33:6]
Lord God Almighty, as Your watchman I have been solemnly fulfilling the responsibility You have given me in sounding the alarm to warn Your people; there will be no blood on my hands.
Come, My people, enter your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the Lord’s wrath has passed by. For behold, the Lord is coming out of His Heavenly Sanctuary to punish the inhabitants of the Earth for their iniquity. The Earth also will disclose the blood shed upon her, and the ground will no longer hide those who have been murdered…63 million unborn children slaughtered in cold-blooded murder…and conceal her guilt. They will be brought out for all to see. [Isa 26:20-21]
We are encouraged, though, to keep our own integrity in times of common apostasy, that, if we do so, we shall be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.
There is a holy remnant whom God is raising up for Himself in this Last Day of the Lord…a Godly remnant of His children who will not bow down, who will not shrink back, who will not compromise, who will remain steadfast and immovable in their commitment to follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes. God’s holy remnant is called to a life of obedience and suffering, self-sacrifice and self-denial…to walk along the path that Christ Jesus dedicated for us, and to follow in His footsteps as our forerunner. You cannot become part of My holy remnant without being willing to sacrifice your desire for anything and everything you own.
Friends, brothers and sisters, this is our Lord’s exhortation…
Arise My bride, and prepare to pray:
- Pray to strengthen the backbone of the Church. The current ongoing persecution of the Church and of Christians is going to escalate exponentially; it is going to get MUCH WORSE.
- Pray for the cleansing of the corruption in the Church. God is going to expose and purge corruption within His Church, and separate the wheat from the chaff…separate His True church from the apostate churches that no longer belong to Him. He is going to expose false prophets and teachers, and wolves dressed in sheep clothing pretending to be shepherds.
- Pray for a Great Harvest: It is a call to preach the gospel to everyone, everywhere; God will use His holy remnant to seek and to save the lost. There will be a great harvest of souls in these Last Days. Jesus said to them, “Go throughout the whole world and preach the good news of the Gospel to everyone, everywhere. With My authority, take this message of repentance to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: There is forgiveness of sins for all who turn to Me. [Mark 16:15; Luke 24:47]
And now, Lord God Almighty…bring rains to our drought-stricken lives, so that those who sow in tears, invoking the Lord of the Harvest, will reap with songs of Joy. He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying bountiful sheaves from the harvest with him! [Ps 126:3-6] Hallelujah!
Arise My bride, and prepare for battle. There is going to be severe Satanic, demonic attacks against God’s holy remnant of committed, uncompromising, steadfast Christians, pastors, and leaders [not the lukewarm], and against marriages, families, and children in these coming days! There is going to be severe attacks and intense persecution coming from pretending “Christians” within the church, against pastors who preach the uncompromised Word of God. For the time is coming when people will not tolerate sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching for something self-pleasing and gratifying, they will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. [2 Tim 4:3-5]
Woe to the inhabitants of the Earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short. [Rev 12:12]
Arise My bride, and prepare to see My Face. Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.
“Behold”, says the Lord Jesus in His last warning for the last opportunity offered to mankind to be among His redeemed, “I come for the last time like a thief in the night to gather those who would be among the elect! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, in watchfulness, prayer and readiness for the summons when it comes, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed, eternally without remedy.”
ENDURE TO THE END
I am coming quickly. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will deprive you of your crown. Everyone who overcomes by means of their faith…I will give the privilege to sit beside Me on My Throne, just as I Myself overcame and am now seated beside My Father on His Throne.
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.”
