So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him. Genesis 5:23-24.
The one whose mind is set on You, You will keep in perfect peace, because he trusts in You. Isaiah 26:3.
Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. John 15:4-5.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
Connect. Connection. Abide. Remain. Continue. Stay connected to Me. Dwell in Me and let Me dwell in you. Connected. Partnership, fellowship, unity of purpose, agreement, mutual love, covenant, joined as ONE. No divisions, no separations, no disconnects. Free flow, rivers of living water, wells of eternal life, depths of wholeness and peace. Mysteries revealed and light undimmed. Enlightened with the light of life. Limitless love. Clarity of vision. Beauty of holiness. Magnificence of greatness all around. The power of connection and the joys of communications of the heart. Strength comes from the inner man out but it only flows through connection. Lean on, draw on, dwell in, connect with Me.
A troubled heart cannot connect. A troubled heart cannot rest in Me. Jesus gave you His peace but He cautioned you not to let your heart be troubled and not to let your heart be afraid. A troubled heart, a fearful heart, will disconnect you from Me and the peace that passes understanding. So remove grief and anger from your heart and put away pain from your body. Ecclesiastes 11:10.
Stay connected to Me. He who keeps His mind stayed on Me I keep in shalom shalom. Isaiah 26:3. A double peace, the double portion of the Shabbat. Enter into My rest and rest in Me as I work with you on your behalf. Remember Jesus said, “My Father is at work even to now and I am at work as well.”
If you do not forgive, you cannot give. If you are troubled you will break off connection. So, again I say, remove grief and anger from your heart and put away pain from your body. Ecclesiastes 10:11. Your window of time is passing and the door to eternity is open. I knock at the door of your heart, open to Me and connect. It is the best decision and the most important one you can make. Covenant, and all I am becomes yours and all you are becomes Mine. The first step is to open your heart to Me by believing in your heart that I raised Jesus from the dead and confessing with your mouth that Jesus is Lord! Romans 10:9-10. Then you are in the Kingdom and you are connected for Jesus is in you, and He will never leave you or forsake you, and I give you the gift of the Holy Spirit. You are connected, spirit to Spirit. One Spirit with Me.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give constant thanks—that is how you are sure to stay connected, you will have an open passageway to the throne of grace, for you enter My gates with thanksgiving and My courts with joyful songs of praise. Know you have all you need, you only need draw it to you through our connection. Faith is the fabric of the connection, it is the conductor.
Troubled hearts are hard to connect with. They are closed in and are not open to others. Job broke off his connection with Me and lost his protection. The hedge went down. Fear connects you with another spirit that is not from Me. And fear will destroy you. Fear disconnects you from faith and you connect with Me only by faith, and faith works by love.
When you fear you lose protection and cannot reach perfection. Only by connection with Me can you reach true completion. In Christ you are complete. Connection makes for direction, protection, and perfection.
Therefore, having been justified by faith, you have peace with Me through your Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also you have obtained your introduction by faith into this grace in which you stand; and you exult in hope of My glory. And not only this, but you also exult in your tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because My love has been poured out within your hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to you. Romans 5:1-5. Connection. Grace. My life flowing into you like an electrical current continually. Do not disconnect or you will not be able to run.
When you dwell in Me you are safe. Remember? Jesus wept over Jerusalem because the people would not come to Him to dwell in His protection. He longed to draw them under His protection as a mother hen gathers her chicks under her wings. Come under the wings of My protection and of My lovingkindness. That is what Psalm 91 is about, connection for perfect protection from the perils of a world full of the curse. “You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shadow of the Almighty. Say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!” For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark. You will not be afraid of the terror by night, or of the arrow that flies by day; of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, or of the destruction that lays waste at noon. A thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not approach you. You will only look on with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked. For you have made the Lord, my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place. No evil will befall you, nor will any plague come near your tent. For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways. They will bear you up in their hands, that you do not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread upon the lion and cobra, the young lion and the serpent you will trample down. Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name. He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. With a long life I will satisfy him and show him My salvation.” Psalm 91.
Connection is everything here and for eternity. In Heaven you shall see My face continually, united as One in majesty, power and authority, but above all in perfect peace and love, perfect joy and happiness, perfect health and youthfulness, perfect vigor and strength, forever because of connection. I have made you a partaker of the divine nature. Grace.
Be aggressive in fighting the good fight of faith to keep hold on what you own, keep the connection. Paul wrote the same to Timothy, “Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called.” 2 Timothy 6:12. Take hold of the hope set before you, Hebrews 6:18, and stay connected. You have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus My Son, so hold fast to your confession of faith, of My Word. Hebrews 4:14. Don’t let the thief steal it for the thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy. Stay connected in our fellowship so that your faith may become effective through the knowledge of every good thing which is in you that I have freely given you in Christ. Philemon 1:6; 1 Corinthians 2:12. Connect with all the good things that are in you by the power of My Spirit and Christ in you, your hope of glory. Healing is there, you already have it, take HOLD of it. Connect with it. But it takes a fight of faith to resist the devil so that he will flee with the spirit of infirmity and the spirit of pain he is trying to make you receive and host within your body. But your body is a temple of My Spirit and you should keep out that unclean spirit by rebuke and by connecting fully with what is your own. I am able to do far more abundantly beyond all that you ask or think—but do not stop there and sit in park waiting for Me to move, no, it is according to the power that works within you! You have to work out with Me what I put in you. Connect and expect to see mighty works of power! Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven. Luke 10:19-20. Rejoice that you have that connection. You belong.
Your life, your window of time, is really only about one thing, your connection with Me. Jesus told Martha that when she got upset that her sister Mary was sitting at His feet listening to His Word while Martha was working alone in the kitchen on hospitality for the visitors. Mary was connecting, while Martha was troubled and anxious about “things,” and Jesus told her that Mary had chosen the better part because only one thing was really necessary. A troubled heart cannot connect. And the more connected We become the more one We become and as that connection gets closer and stronger you suddenly are so connected that you just step out of your window of time through the open door of eternity to My Kingdom that no one can shut, totally connected with Me and all the citizens and inhabitants of My Kingdom forever. Have you never read about Enoch, the father of Methuselah? “So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.” Genesis 5:23-24. Enoch became so connected he just stepped across the threshold of time to eternity as simply as painlessly as entering the embrace of the one you love.
I love you. Connect. And remember, a troubled, fearful, angry, grieving heart cannot connect. But I have good news for you, when you come to the knowledge of all the good things I have put in you in Christ, your joy will be so full that there is no room for anything else. Connect, abide, dwell, remain, with Me. Everything else will be added but it all flows through the CONNECTION.
