JOURNEY OF FAITH
May 17 through June 30
Brothers and sisters in Christ…
For those who had been wholeheartedly engaged in our prayer journey, it will now become for you a launching pad…if it hasn’t done so already…into experiencing an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon your life. That will be the focus of our 45 day Journey of Faith, to begin on May 17th and ending on June 30th.
Abba Father…why do I exist? Why did You bring me into existence?
My beloved child…it is so simple a child can understand it. Yet, it is so simple that only a child can embrace it. That is why My Divine Son Jesus said, “Anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never be able to enter it.” ** (your name) **, My Eternal Reason for bringing you into existence was because I loved You. I knew you in eternity past, by name, and I loved you with an everlasting love. My Eternal Purpose for bringing you into existence…at the specific time and place and through the human parents I had ordained in eternity past…was for you to be joined together with Me in a Sacred Covenant relationship. Don’t you understand, My child? I made you for Myself, in My Own image and likeness, to be joined together with Me in a living union of oneness… and that, as a mirror of the Almighty, you would reflect My Glory to the created Universe. You are the very crown jewels of My Creation!
I made this Sacred Covenant relationship possible through the Eternal Provision of My Son. You were dead in your trespasses and sins, without hope and without God…but 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 Eternal Worth of His Blood, poured out on your behalf on that cross at Calvary, all of your sins…past, present, and future…are forgiven, and I have conferred upon you the judicial status of eternal righteousness before Me.
You enter into My Eternal Purpose for your existence solely and only by being born again…born a second time…this time through being born into My Family and 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 thereby become My child through a new birth; unless you are born again, you cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. You were granted the right to become born spiritually as a child of God on that momentous day when you earnestly made a solemn vow before God in giving yourself to be the bride of Christ My Son, receiving Jesus the Christ into your life in divine marriage, promising to honor and obey Him as both Lord over your life and Savior of your soul. [see Bride of Christ: https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/]
I have also covenanted an Eternal Promise for My children…a promised rest for you all the days of your life on Earth, and then to continue together with Me in Heaven for all eternity. You enter into My promised rest solely and only by faith…through an unwavering child-like trust in Me, an unreserved child-like dependence upon Me, and an unquestioning child-like obedience to, and acceptance of, My will. By living your everyday life in this manner, you will enjoy an unruffled child-like rest in Me, and you will abide with an unclouded child-like carefree joy together with Me in the Holy of Holies…where all is peaceful and calm, all is tranquil and unruffled. This is your birth-right as My child!
In our Sacred Covenant relationship, I have an Eternal Plan for your life on Earth… plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a sure hope and a wonderful future. Don’t you understand, **__________**? You are My workmanship, created in Christ Jesus My Son to do the good works I Myself have prepared in advance for you to do. I formed you and knit you together in your mother’s womb with the specific human capabilities and capacities that would be necessary for you to do the work I have prepared in eternity past for you. You have been custom designed and made! Even more, since you are hopelessly powerless, hopelessly impotent, hopelessly helpless in the power of your sin- enslaved human nature to do My work and My will…or even to want to, I have made Eternal Provision for you through the Eternal Gift of My Holy Spirit, given to abide in you. He is now the Divine nature dwelling in you, given to be the Power of your life, the source of your strength, Who continually works in you both the desire to do My will and the Power to do so…and He will never leave you nor forsake you!
There you have it, My beloved child…My Eternal Reason for bringing you into existence, My Eternal Purpose in doing so, My Eternal Plan for your life on Earth, My Eternal Provision that have made these things possible, and all within the framework of My Eternal Promise…My promised rest prepared for My children. Because you are indeed My son/daughter, I have sent the Spirit of My Son into your heart, crying, “Abba, Father!” My children have the privilege of being continually led by the indwelling Spirit of God. For the Holy Spirit which you have now received is not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as My Own child! And by Him you cry with complete confidence, “Abba, Father!” My Holy Spirit Himself testifies together with your own human spirit, assuring you that you are indeed a child of the Most High God!
My beloved child…haven’t you yet understood? It is your privilege to experience an outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon your life, according to My command, “Keep on continually being filled with the Spirit.” You will experience the manifestation of the Holy Spirit in your life… singing songs, hymns, and spiritual songs and making melody in your heart to God. You will experience prayer, in accordance with My will, moving the hand of God, and you will experience the blessings that come from obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit in your life. I will show you My Glory; you will see it with your own eyes, and you will have occasion to testify to My great Name and mighty Power! Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God!
Abba Father, thank You for all Your Blessedness and Goodness which You pour into My life…into the lives of all Your children! Thank You for Your eternal desire to have a deep and intimate Personal relationship with me, and to become ever more one with me…a mirror of Your Oneness with One Another in Your Blessed Holy Trinity! Hallelujah! But Father, why is it that so many of Your children have hardly ever experienced…if at all… the manifestation of the Holy Spirit in their lives, or prayer in accordance with Your will moving the hand of God, or the blessings that come from obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit in their lives?
**__________**, an outpouring of My Holy Spirit upon your life is the privilege of every one of My children. There are several prerequisites, however, you need to wholeheartedly embrace in order to enjoy this privilege.
******You need to have the same mind in you that was in My Divine Son Jesus: “Not My will, but Thy will be done. I only do what My Father shows Me to do; I only speak the words My Father gives me to speak.”
******You need to hunger and thirst for personal holiness…for purity, holiness, and righteousness in living your everyday life. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God; without holiness, no one will see the Lord.
******You need to come away with Me to our trysting place faithfully every day to commune with Me, where we can just be alone to spend some time together. It is there in our secret place that I reveal to you the rich eternal treasures from above, in the spiritual realm.
******And the habit of your life needs to be continually watching before Me and waiting upon Me, looking off unto Me and listening for My voice, with an unwavering child-like trust and an unreserved child-like dependence…for Me to reveal My plans, purposes, and will for you, and a deeper revelation of Who I am…so you may then respond, with an unquestioning child-like obedience, to every leading and prompting of My Holy Spirit, cooperating with the Power of His enabling grace Who works in you both to will and to do.
My brothers and sisters in Christ…we just completed our 40 Day Prayer Journey. It was intensely personal in nature, a heart-cry to God to touch your life by His Spirit, and work a deep change in you…and you had God’s blessed assurance you would never be the same again! These were the specific blessings you were praying for…
- Personal revival. Revival begins in my own heart. The prayer journey is a consecration of my heart to God, pleading with Him to bring revival, and to begin with me.
- Longing for God…an ever deeper, ever more intimate, personal relationship with Him.
- Hunger and thirst for personal holiness in my heart, manifested in living out my everyday life.
- Seeking to keep on being continually filled with the Holy Spirit.
Now we will turn our focus on a 45 day Journey of Faith, ever deeper into the depths of God, to begin on May 17th and ending on June 30th.
