In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory. Ephesians 1:13-14.
All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day. For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.” John 6:37-40.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
There are no halfway salvations. You are either in or you are out. No one can say “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit. There is no middle ground. When you are saved, you are saved forever. You may not have renewed your mind to the truth that will set you free, and because of that your life may still look no different from that of an unbeliever, but you have opened your heart to Me and I can go to work in your life to complete the good work I have begun in you. The process of the disciple has begun once you have opened your door to My Son for with Him comes the Holy Spirit. For if you continue in My Word, you are truly My disciple, and then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. No follower of Mine walks in darkness, you have the Light of Life. Wake up then, sleeper, and Christ will give you light.
You will note that My Will is that all be saved and come to know the truth. Not just get saved but come to know the truth. You must be set free to be a mature person in Christ, that is, to reach your full stature.
When you believe in My Son as your Lord, something wonderful happens in your spirit. You become a new creation in Christ. But your soul and your body are not new, they are as they were. But the great thing is, once your spirit is born again from above, you can discern spiritual things and the Holy Spirit now within YOU will give life to your mortal body and renew you by washing you clean with the water of the Word. Your body and soul can get in line with your spirit and make all things new in your life. But the only way that will happen is by meditating, hearing, speaking, and doing My Word. If you continue in My Word, and it is the Word that saved you, you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. As you received Jesus as Lord, so live in Him. And you received Him by faith. So you must walk by faith and not just by sight. And faith only comes one way—by hearing, and for it to be faith in Me, it must be by hearing My Word. So receive the implanted Word, it has the power to save your soul. And if you soul is renewed your body will follow. For your soul consists of your mind, your will and your emotions, and it is your emotions that are the voice of your flesh. If you get those under the spirit by faith, you will function at the max. For your emotions will follows what you are permitting your mind to dwell upon. The mouth speaks from the heart’s abundance.
My point is this, once born again, you are called to newness of life. It is time for the old you with your selfish ways to become new. Someone whose life becomes one of significance. It worked for Peter and for John, for Paul and for Lydia, for Priscilla and Aquila, for Apollos and Silas, for Barnabus and Timothy, and so many others to this very day, and it will work for you. They became more than conquerors taking territory for My Kingdom and bringing Light, salvation, healing, righteousness, peace, and joy wherever they set their feet. And so can you. I have given you Jesus and all that He is and has, I have given you the Holy Spirit and made you partakers of My divine nature and put My power in you who believe, and I have given you the Kingdom. There is nothing more I can give you and nothing more you will ever need. You have everything you need for life and godliness. Everything I have is yours.
And yet most people act like they have nothing but their sins. But My Holy Spirit in you who believe testifies to your spirit that your sins and offenses I remember NO MORE. They are no longer yours, I put them on Jesus and exchanged them for His righteousness. Which is My righteousness. You are forgiven, redeemed, sanctified, justified, and glorified. You died with Him and I raised you up with Him and I seated you with Him in Heaven at My right hand.
When you joined yourself with Christ, you became one spirit with Him and I sealed you in Him by the Holy Spirit as a pledge of the redemption of your body to an immortal one on the Last Day. And I have commanded Him that He shall lose nothing that I give Him but raise you up on the Last Day. I sealed you in Him and you will never be without that seal again. You are forever saved, there is no snatching out of His hand for I have sealed you in Him.
You opened the gate of your heart to My Son and the Kingdom is now accessible to you within your spirit by My Spirit. But it does not stop there. You have another gate, and that is the gate of what you release into the world, and what you are releasing should match the Kingdom that is in you. You became a house of God when you opened the gate of your heart to Me, but now it is time for you to become a gate of Heaven into the world. You can nothing without Me but I can do nothing in your life and in the world of any significant nature without you.
It is a partnership. A partnership between you and Me. A partnership that joins Heaven and earth. A partnership of significance. There is power in the double. Me and you. And with one person working with Me and releasing My power into a situation, we can move a nation, we can change the world. You may think of yourself as insignificant, but if you team up in partnership with Me, you become the most powerful person on the planet. But it is not by your might but Mine. But without you, My power lies dormant, shut out of the world I made and gave to men. From Adam on it was meant to be a partnership between man and God but Adam did not witness with Me to that and severed the enterprise of our partnership. Instead he began a life of toil and slavery to sin, to which he had submitted as his master. But Jesus came to reverse the curse Adam released and reinstate the terminated partnership. He made covenant with Me and the whole partnership was reinstated. For you are joined in the covenant of partnership the moment you are born again and clothe yourself in Christ. And that is when it all begins new. Restored but better than before because this time God and Man are ONE in the person of Christ Jesus your Lord. He is the God Man. And with, in and through Him you become a God Man too—filled with the Holy Spirit and a partaker of the divine nature, My child and heir, a joint heir with Christ, and everything I have is His, so in Him it is yours. With faithful Abraham, who made covenant with Me to open the way for Christ to come into the world as his descendant according to the flesh and as God according to the Spirit. And in Christ you too are a descendant of Abraham, but now you have a new and better Covenant. The everlasting Covenant of love. My love and grace.
Many people think prayer is a set of rules, a formula, which may or may not obtain what they want. It is kind of a mixture of begging, commanding Me, confronting Me, and cajoling Me. But it should not be that way. Prayer should be partnership. Prayer should be a time when we reason together. Prayer should be communication between the Kingdom and earth. Prayer is a time when you are loosing on earth what is loosed in Heaven and binding on earth what is bound in Heaven. You should be saving souls and seeking the lost. You should be supplying the world with grace and light. You should be hearing from Me and I from you in a wonderful vibrant exchange. You should always receive in prayer an instruction, a revelation, an impartation, and perhaps an exhortation, but above all you should receive My love, My joy, and My peace. And it is there you will receive your vision and its provision. Without prayer there is no communication between us and if you do not communicate how can we participate in a partnership? How can you go about Kingdom business? How do you know your assignment? Listen to Habakkuk on the subject: “I will stand at my guard post and station myself on the rampart; and I will keep watch to see what He will speak to me, and how I may reply when I am reproved. Then the Lord answered me and said, “Record the vision and inscribe it on tablets, that the one who reads it may run. For the vision is yet for the appointed time. It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; for it will certainly come, it will not delay. Behold, as for the proud one, his soul is not right within him; but the righteous will live by faith.” Habakkuk 2:1-4.
Your life should be a supernatural life of faith. You should see the world through the window of faith. And you should always be thinking of our partnership and looking to save the lost and bring all men to know the truth. The truth of My love for them. The truth of what I did for them in Christ. And the truth of our partnership. Come move nations with Me right from the privacy of our prayer chamber. The chamber of your heart.
I love you. Do not run away from Me but call while I am near. I am present as your helper, partner, God, friend, and, best of all, your Father, who can do anything.
