See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people. Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit. 1 Thessalonians 5:15-19.

The Lord God has given Me the tongue of disciples, That I may know how to sustain the weary one with a word. He awakens Me morning by morning; He awakens My ear to listen as a disciple. Isaiah 50:4-5.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

There are those of you that, though you believe in Jesus, you are not walking in the Light. You are fearful, depressed, afraid, and upset. Everything seems dark in your life. You have gotten into  a pit. But I promised you that no follower of His will ever walk in darkness but have the Light of life. And My promises are sure, they do not fail. Notice it says “followers.” Disciples. If you continue in My Word, you are truly My disciples, and then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. Free from what? All that is in the darkness. The revelation of My Word gives Light.

If you stay in the Light, the darkness cannot overtake you. Light permits no darkness. If the light you once walked in has become darkness, it is only because you turned out the light. Depressed, fearful, and anxious people are dwelling in darkness. But I rescued you from the dominion of darkness and brought you into My own marvelous light. I have translated you to the Kingdom of My Beloved Son. And He is the Light of the world.

So how did you turn out the Light of life in your life? The answer is of course there in front of you in My Word. My Son baptizes you in the Holy Spirit and fire. My Spirit enlightens you with the Light of life. So how could you possibly walk in darkness? You quench the Holy Spirit.

And how do you do that? Read the answer in Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians. I tell to rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give constant thanks for this is My Will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. I tell you to do this so you can share My joy and your joy will be full. But if you do not do these three simple things, if instead of rejoicing always, you fear and are upset constantly, and if instead of praying you worry, and if instead of thanking you complain, grumble and whine, you will quench the Holy Spirit and I can do no mighty works in your life. And that is the very next line after I tell you to rejoice, pray and give thanks is: “Do not quench the Spirit.” 1 Thessalonians 5:19.

So if you have gotten worn and weary and have let your light go dark, what do you do? You seek from Me a Word that will rouse you. Isaiah 50:4-5 (“The Lord LORD has given me the tongue of disciples, that I may know how to sustain the weary one with a word that will rouse him. He awakens me morning by morning, He awakens my ear to listen as a disciple.”) I tell you that you have My prophetic Word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. 2 Peter 1:19. I send My Word to heal you and deliver you from your destructions. I send My Word to pull you out of the pit. My Words are life to those who find them and health to all their flesh.

So no matter how dark it is looking to you right now, turn on the Light. The entrance of My Word gives light. I have a Word for you and it is for right now to pull you up out of the pit.

So what is My Word to you? “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU.” Hebrews 13:5 And what is your response? It is the very next line, “So that we CONFIDENTLY SAY: “THE LORD IS MY HELPER, I WILL NOT BE AFRAID, WHAT WILL MAN DO TO ME?” Hebrews 13:6. Say it with great confidence right now. Say it loud! And repeat it three times. And now shout for joy. And shout again!

And if you are feeling very unlovely, if you are gazing at yourself as a failure, a sinner, someone that failed in your work, a relationship, or anything else in your life, including violating My commandments, I have good news for you! That is why I gave you Jesus. I gave Him to you so you can live your life through, in and with Him. And He never sinned and He did all things well. And that is now who you are before Me too. You have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for ALL. Hebrews 10:11.

I gave you Jesus, I was in Jesus reconciling you to Myself, to make your ugly self perfectly beautiful, blameless, holy and beyond reproach. Colossians 1:21-22. Jesus took on Himself ALL your faults and washed you with the water of the Word to present you with no spot or wrinkle or any such thing that you would be holy and blameless before Me as His Body on earth. Ephesians 5:25-17.

You may be calling yourself the worst of sinners (Paul called himself that but he also knew that by My grace he was the most outstanding of the apostles in the works I entrusted to him and that he was completely free of guilt or shame) or thinking of yourself as anything but beautiful to Me and others, BUT sing Me a new song and shout for joy, be glad in your Maker, rejoice in your King of Glory, the LORD of Hosts, and praise My Name with dancing and sing praises with timbrel and lyre, for I, the LORD, take pleasure in My people, I BEAUTIFY the afflicted with SALVATION (Yeshuah, Jesus!). Psalm 149:1-4. I delight in you and I take delight in making you beautiful with Jesus. And the result? Just read on in Psalm 149, “Let the godly ones exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds.” Psalm 149:5. You may have allowed yourself to slip into crying and are tossing and turning with worry and regret over the pit you have gotten yourself into or someone else got you into, but guess what? I will make you beautiful and crown you in glory, for those I sanctified, I also glorified, that you will instead be singing for joy on your bed.

And how do I beautify you? I clothe you in the garments of salvation (Yeshuah) and wrap you in the robe of righteousness. Have you never read, “For all of you have been baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ?” Galatians 3:27. And Isaiah prophesied this to you in the very chapter, Isaiah 61, from which Jesus read that first time in the synagogue of Nazareth to announce who He was and His mission, “The Spirit of the Lord LORD (Adonai Yahweh) is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners; to proclaim the favorable year of the LORD.” Isaiah 61:1-2. And let Me go on: “To comfort all who mourn, to grant those who mourn in Zion, giving them beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting.” Isaiah 61:3. And now here is the Word I want you to chew on and take in as your own, for I am speaking to YOU: “I will rejoice greatly in the LORD, my soul will exult in my God; for He has clothed me with garments of salvation, He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” Isaiah 61:10.

Do you even begin to fathom how beautiful I have made you in Christ? Exquisite. In Him, I have not only justified you (made you free from sin) I have also glorified you with the glory of Christ, which is My glory. Romans 8:30; 2 Corinthian 4:6. I have called you into and qualified you for My eternal glory. 1 Thessalonians 2:12; 1 Peter 5:10, Colossians 1:12. I have removed your filthy garments, I have covered your nakedness (remember what happened when Adam and Eve fell from glory? When they were no longer in the robe of righteousness (I wrap Myself in Light)? They became naked and afraid) and clothed you in the garments of Yeshuah (in Hebrew the Word for Salvation is “Yeshuah” which is rendered “Jesus” in English) and wrapped you in My own Righteousness, the armor of Light. I have clothed you in glory and honor and made you children of Light. Beautiful. All creation groans with longing for the revelation of the children of light.

Now I want to take you back to what I showed My prophet Zechariah. It is fulfilled in you and Jesus. Zechariah writes: “Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him. The LORD said to Satan, “The LORD rebuke you, Satan! Indeed, the LORD who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?” Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments and standing before the angel. He spoke and said to those who were standing before him, saying, “Remove the filthy garments from him.” Again He said to him, “See, I have taken your iniquity away from you and  clothe you with festal robes.” Then I said, “Let them put a clean turban on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him with garments, while the angel of the LORD was standing by.” Zechariah 3:1-5. I take your filthy garments, your soiled and spoiled life away, and give you a new and abundant life, I make you a new creation in Christ! The old man is gone and the new man, created again in My image and likeness, has come. I have made you a royal priesthood by the blood of Jesus and clothed in Him as in festal garments! The garments of the wedding feast for My Son! I have taken your iniquity away of you and clothed in in festal robes.

See yourself in the mirror of My Word, and you will see who you really are. Let Me see your face, let Me hear your voice, for YOU are lovely and your voice to Me is sweet. Song of Songs 2:14.

Do you want to see how beautiful your life is before Me? Just read the Gospels and gaze at Jesus. And it is My Will that all who behold Him and believe in Him will have eternal life, and Jesus Himself will raise you up on the last day. John 6:40.

I love you. Let Me beautify you with Salvation. And here is a word I gave you through My apostle Paul, “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 3:18. For I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU. So that you CONFIDENTLY SAY: “THE LORD IS MY HELPER, I WILL NOT BE AFRAID, WHAT WILL MAN DO TO ME?” Hebrews 13:5-6.
