For of His fullness we have all received, and grace upon grace. For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth was brought forth through Jesus Christ. John 1:16-17.
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God. Ephesians 2:8.
Who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity, but now has been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. 2 Timothy 1:9-10.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
It is all about grace. Grace is My divine life pouring into you creating you anew in Christ Jesus so that you become just as He is in the world—filled with all the fullness of God. It is My power in you enabling YOU to do abundantly beyond all you can ask or imagine. It is Christ in you, your hope of glory.
Grace comes to you in Jesus, there is no other way to join as One with Me. He is God become Man. He unites us into One in Himself. I was in Christ reconciling you to Myself in Him, not counting your sins and offenses against you but cleansing you and making you righteous with My own righteousness so that you are joined to Me and live in and through Me as a branch in the vine. But even closer.
In Christ Jesus you become who you really are—godly. You are My children in My image doing the works I do in your domain of the earth. You live with Me and in Me and it is a divine exchange. By receiving the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness you reign in life through Christ Jesus.
When Adam cut off his connection to the Kingdom and went to another government, he no longer had that connection to divine life. He became ungodly, and the earth rebelled against him. It no longer responded to him but produced thorns and thistles and made him toil to bring forth produce. Genesis 3:17-19. He, like his son Cain, became a wanderer of the earth, which no longer responded to him. Genesis 4:12. But I had a plan, called Covenant, to join you back with Me in Jesus, the promised seed that would crush the head (authority) of the devil’s government of man, so that the earth would again respond to you as was My plan. I told this to My prophet Hosea. “In that day I will also make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, the birds of the sky and the creeping things of the ground. And I will abolish the bow, the sword and war from the land, and will make them lie down in safety. I will betroth you to Me forever; yes, I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and in justice, in lovingkindness and in compassion, and I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness. Then you will know the Lord. ‘It will come about in that day that I will respond,’ declares the Lord. ‘I will respond to the heavens, and they will respond to the earth, and the earth will respond to the grain, to the new wine and to the oil, and they will respond to Jezreel. I will sow her for Myself in the land. I will also have compassion on her who had not obtained compassion, and I will say to those who were not My people, ‘You are My people!’ And they will say, ‘You are my God!’” Hosea 2:18-23.
Jezreel means “God sows” and I sowed My Son, the imperishable seed, to bring back a harvest of many brethren to Me. Remember My Son likened Himself to a seed, “And Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” John 12:23-24. He died for you, deep in the earth He descended to die the death that Adam deserved, and then I raised Him from the dead, the firstborn of many brethren. A new breed of men, God men and God women, seated with Him in Heaven, justified and glorified in Him.
The Law that I gave to Moses imposed standards of divine holiness, but it did not bring grace—My life inside you. Grace imparts divine life giving you access to the divine nature to enable you to live a divine life. It enables you to be made into a new creation. It is by grace you have been saved through faith, not by your works but by My work. You are partakers of My manifold grace. But do not receive it in vain.
The Ten Commandments condemn the best, for all have sinned and fallen short of My glory. Under the Law that I gave to Moses the wages of sin is death and you owe divine justice a debt. Under grace the gift is eternal life, not through your merits but those of Jesus, and it justifies the worst and your debt is paid in full. Under grace, you believe and rest, because grace gives you the power to obey and walk in righteousness.
Do not harden your heart, I counsel. Hardened hearts grieved Jesus. And when you see Him, you see Me. I call it a hardened heart when you will not take and receive the good things that I want to give you. The Israelites I redeemed out of slavery in Egypt refused to enter the Promised Land out of fear of defeat and death when I had assured them I would go ahead of them and open the way and give them an abundance of good things that they had not built, planted or worked for, but they would not believe that I would give them all that and refused to take and receive it. Jesus was grieved when people rejected healing and would not receive the abundant life He came to bring them.
Believe in the great goodness I have in store for you not matter where you are or what is going on in your life today and enter My rest with Me. Not believing in the good things I want to give you keeps you out of the rest and in stress. Stress, worry, and anxiety, which plague so many today, is simply you believing that I am not taking care of you. If you would just settle down in the truth that I am taking care of you, that is, if you will authorize Me to do so but casting your care on Me and standing on My Word, then you would not be stressed but be at rest—in perfect peace when you are established in righteousness (i.e., that I have made you righteous with My own righteousness in Christ, which cannot change no matter what your actions have been).
My Word already has everything in your life covered with an answer and with perfect wholeness in every area of your life. And the work has already been done for you. Cares and anxiety choke out the Word so that it cannot produce the results (the harvest) that I want to produce in your life.
My grace is sufficient for you. It has empowered and enabled you to walk in victory every moment, every hour, every day, every year from now until eternity. It has made you godly, a partaker of My nature, giving you all you need for life and godliness.
By Covenant I have joined you to Myself as One and sealed it with the precious, sinless Blood of My Son. I have entrusted you with My Word by planting it in your heart, that you might grow and guard it and let it life impart. And My Spirit within you speaks My Words to you each day, to guide you unto all truth and lead you in the Way. By grace I have recreated you anew in the image of My Son, the God Man. And as He is, so are you before Me—holy, blameless and beyond reproach.
And I always hear you. And I always answer. Ask and you shall receive. I give good things to My children. It pleases Me to give you the Kingdom.
My grace gives it, your faith takes it, and together we can change the face of the earth, by My Spirit in you and on you, and by your faith and your willingness to obey My Word. That is all it takes for the extraordinary to become your ordinary.
I love you. Do not receive My grace in vain, but take it by faith and run with it until you have finished your assignment and are ready to be promoted from glory to glory in the eternal Kingdom that will join Heaven and earth as one where there is nothing but joy and perfect day.
