We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the veil, where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek. Hebrews 6:19-20.
Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the veil, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Hebrews 10:19-22.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
When I open no one can shut. And when I shut no one can open. I have opened a new and living way for you right to My throne of grace and no one can shut you out. You have direct access 24/7 to the very Holy of Holies. Your anchor of hope that reaches beyond the veil.
Are you taking advantage of so great a salvation? Or are you going to continue in confusion? Life does not have to be so complicated if you learn how to lean on Me. To live a truly victorious and restful life you have to learn how to inquire of Me for direction, for answers, for solutions, and for discernment. In other words, you need to become aware of My presence, the Holy Spirit within, and learn how to hear, follow and discern direction. As many as are My children (mature children) are led by My Spirit. And you can be too. But you have to grow up. Spiritually, that is, not just physically. You can be quite mature physically, but spiritually, as Paul warned the Corinthians, be immature, likened to a baby. And babies cannot understand on the level of mature adults nor perform fruitful works.
Most people pray very strange prayers. They treat Me like an enemy. They act like they have to beg and persuade Me to do something good for them. They do not realize I already have and they don’t need to beg for it but to receive it. And they don’t know how to receive. And they never seek My input or advice on the matter of how to obtain what they are seeking. They do not come with confidence and they do not know My Word, even if they have heard it. And they do not know My voice. But children know their parent’s voice. My children know My voice. Even sheep know their shepherd’s voice and follow him when he calls them to lead them out and lead them in. If they can do that, you can do far more.
If you think outside of faith, you are thinking like the world. And love of the world is enmity to Me. The world does not agree with what I say. It speaks lack and despair. It looks only at human strength. It is locked into the realm of the five senses and does not see behind the veil. But it should not be that way with you who believe. You have an anchor of hope beyond the veil.
In Jesus, every promise I make in the Bible is “yes” to you. Yet most people approach Me as if it is “no.” I gave you My beloved Son to live your life through Him, won’t I give you everything He is and has? My fullness dwells in Him in bodily form, the complete fullness of divinity, and in Him YOU have been made COMPLETE, that is full, lacking in nothing. Colossians 2:9-10. In Him, I have blessed you with EVERY spiritual blessing in the Heaven. And there is no lack, pain, illness, fear or depression in Heaven, there is only abundance of all that is good, pleasing and perfect, and that is My Will for you. Romans 12:2. It is time you found out what you have and reach out in confidence to take it and draw it into your life. When you think and act like I say you are, it is then you enter into My rest with Me. And I will complete the good work I have begun in you if you will let Me. Have you never read, “Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord, equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.” Hebrews 13:20-21.
Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude. Colossians 2:6-7. And how did you receive Him? By faith that I have given you salvation in Him. And all you did is reach out and take it by agreeing with My promise of forgiveness, cleansing, and eternal life to those who have confessed Him as Lord. You did not have to feel anything, you just believed and received your salvation. And that is the same with all My promises.
My apostle Peter wrote this truth to you, and showed you clearly it is by faith but it has to be informed faith that has a true knowledge of who I am and what I have done for you, “To those who have received a like precious faith with us, in the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.” 2 Peter 1:1-4.
And what are these magnificent promises that make you a partaker of My Divine nature and life? That fill your cup to overflowing? That anoint your head with oil, the oil of joy and give you wisdom and knowledge? For in Christ are ALL the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Well, to mention a few, I promise you healing, peace, joy, provision, prosperity, guidance, protection, deliverance, redemption, forgiveness, salvation, vindication, shalom, wisdom, redemption, sanctification, righteousness, and eternal life, and many magnificent promises besides. These should be enough to make you rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give constant thanks knowing that these are My Will for you and My free gifts to you in Christ Jesus your Lord.
I also promise you renewal of youth. This is one that most people do not reach for, but actually speak stout against. Most people, if you asked them, would want it, but they do not really believe they can have it. Instead they give in to and declare the aging process. They talk about their aging, sagging body and forgetful mind as if this is inevitable. Well, it is in the world system, but in My Kingdom system Moses was in full youthful vigor with undimmed vision at the age of 120 years. And he did not depart this life because of illness. I took him because of other reasons that are now all under the Blood of My Son and remembered no more.
What did Moses do that caused him to stay so young? Joshua did the same and Caleb. Actually Abraham outlived them all. He was 175 years when he passed and he was fully satisfied. And he was not weak or sickly. He was satisfied, and that is when you are ready to go on. But not before. Which of you desires long life, filled with happiness and all good things? Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from all lies, seek peace and pursue it always. Life and death are in the power of your tongue, choose life that you and your descendants may live. Abraham did and MUCH MORE you who live on this side of the Cross and Resurrection can do.
There is a reason behind longevity. Take a look at the difference in staying youthful and not doing so. Moses, Joshua and Caleb stayed youthful, they could battle and lead nations at ages well over eighty years and, as Caleb stated, be more able bodied than when they were half that age. And yet Jacob, though he lived to be 147 years, he was not leading battles but lying in bed sick. Genesis 48:1-2. Moses certainly was not doing that in his older age. Why? Look at their words and how they thought of Me and you will see.
When Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers, they led Jacob to believe that Joseph had been attacked by wild beasts and died. They brought Joseph’s cloak that they had dipped in the blood of a goat. Now, this was a certain amount of circumstantial evidence, but there were no bones, no remains, and no trace of Joseph that would have been there had wild beasts attacked him. And Jacob should have known Me by that time as I had walked him through many trials and brought him out victorious. But Jacob thought ill of Me and grieved over his son and did not commune with Me for thirteen years. And all the time Joseph was not dead but I was working things out to care for Jacob in grand style for the rest of his life, as I had always done and never failed him. But he was quick to believe I had forsaken him and not protected his son. I did protect his son, but it was not from wild beasts that Joseph needed protection, but from his jealous brothers who would have killed him had I not intervened by working on the hearts of Judah and Reuben and then distracted them with a caravan of Ishmaelites who gave them money for Joseph.
Just listen to how Jacob responded, “Then Jacob tore his clothes, put on sackcloth and mourned for his son many days. All his sons and daughters came to comfort him, but he refused to be comforted. “No,” he said, “I will continue to mourn until I join my son in the grave.” So his father wept for him.” Genesis 37:34-35. Does not sound like Abraham, he joyfully went up Mt. Moriah ready to sacrifice his son to Me. He assumed I would raise the young man from the dead since I had promised descendant to him through Isaac. He told his servants that he and Isaac would return from the mountain. No doubts of My goodness to him. Fully persuaded.
And when Jacob went before Pharaoh at Joseph’s invitation to dwell richly in Egypt during the time of famine, Joseph brought his father Jacob in and presented him before Pharaoh. After Jacob blessed Pharaoh, Pharaoh asked him, “How old are you?” And Jacob said to Pharaoh, “The years of my pilgrimage are a hundred and thirty. My years have been few and difficult, and they do not equal the years of the pilgrimage of my fathers.” Genesis 47:7-9. You will never hear Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Caleb, David, Mary, or Paul speaking of their lives as “difficult.” They spoke of victory and blessing.
Jacob was never fully persuaded of My goodness and that makes all the difference. And yet I never showed Jacob anything but utmost generosity, lovingkindness, mercy and guidance. I always provided for him in amazing ways. I made him rich. Why? The Covenant I had made with Abraham and his descendants. He had the BLESSING of Abraham working in his life.
And that was what made Joseph prosper as a slave and a prisoner and brought him out to promote him to being second in command in a ruling nation. He had the BLESSING of Abraham. He had covenant benefits. He had the promises I made to Abraham and his descendants forever. And this was tangible and visible. Potiphar knew that the BLESSSING was on everything in his house and farm because of Joseph. And Joseph prospered as a slave in a land hostile to Hebrews. He prospered as a prisoner, and he prospered as prime minister. The BLESSING works wherever you are. And you have that same BLESSING and more. Have you never read, “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” He redeemed us in order that the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.” Galatians 3:13-14.
Are you not aware that I will supply for all of your needs according to My riches in glory in Christ Jesus? And did you believe it? Or do you not understand the grace of your Lord Jesus Christ who emptied Himself of divine fullness to pour it into you so that through His poverty you could become rich? 2 Corinthians 8:9. Draw all you need out of Him, it is all yours as My gift to you. And He pours into you My ultimate gift, the gift of the Holy Spirit, making you One with Me and filling you with all My fullness—the very fullness of God. Partakers, giving life to your mortal bodies.
Instead of looking in the mirror and bemoaning your aging appearance why don’t you agree with My Word to you who have found the RANSOM (Jesus came to give His life as a ransom for you): “Deliver him from going down to the pit, I have found a ransom’; Let his flesh become fresher than in youth, let him return to the days of his youthful vigor; then he will pray to God, and He will accept him, that he may see His face with joy, and He may restore His righteousness to man.” Job 33:24-25. I have done that for you in Jesus. Take hold of it. Is there no one who will say “RESTORE!”? Isaiah 42:22.
I love you. Do you still not understand? Is it not time you grew up and left baby ways behind?
You have seen many things, but you do not observe them; your ears are open, but none hears. The Lord was pleased for His righteousness’ sake to make the law great and glorious. But this is a people plundered and despoiled; all of them are trapped in holes (pits, caves), or are hidden away in prisons; they have become a prey with none to deliver them, and a spoil, with none to say, “RESTORE!” Isaiah 42:20-22.
