And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to purpose. Romans 8:28.

“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling.” Matthew 23:37.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

You may think things are not working but they are. Have you never read, “And you KNOW that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those called according to purpose.” Romans 8:28. What is the PURPOSE? To reconcile all things to Myself. All creation went out from Me. I want to pull all creation back in.

I have made you fishers of men to draw them all back into Me. Home. Into My very bosom. I carry the lambs in My bosom and gather the scattered sheep with care. I seek to gather you all back into Me from whence you came.

I want you to stop finding other places to land outside of Me. I want all headed back home. The great in-gathering. How I long to gather you all to Myself as a mother hen gathers her chicks under her wings. But you would not. And yet you all feel the cry in your heart to head home. In every person there is a call, a cry, an echo of My heartbeat calling them back to Me. Many try to fill it with other things but it will still be there till you rest in Me. It is a call to a deeper existence, deep calls to deep, it is My call on your life that comes into your innermost being where only I can see.  I look at the heart. It is the secret place.

Jesus came to seek out and save the lost. All of you like sheep have gone astray, each of you have turned to his own way; but I have caused the iniquity of all to fall on Him. Isaiah 53:6. And in Him I call you back. Many from the time of Adam to this day have lost the way. But Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. He can bring you back into Me. He can bring you home.

Jesus told you that this was His mission, to bring you home to Me where He is, and He is in My very bosom as One with Me, “I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way where I am going.” But Thomas did not understand that Jesus was going as your forerunner and great High Priest to put His blood on the mercy seat in Heaven to open to you a new and living way back home. Through His substitutionary death, and by His resurrection, with and in Him, you can ascend back to Me. So Thomas said to Him in reply, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” And without Jesus there is no way to come back in to the you who you really are, for that ancient door closed on Adam when he went another way by sin and no longer knew Me as I want to be known. So Jesus explained to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” John 14:3-6. He is drawing you back in. He is the one who wept over the people of Jerusalem, saying, “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling.” Matthew 23:37.

It is the in-gathering, the joining back, the return to home again. You see this in animals who migrate. It is a call that they follow that is in them. And that call leads them back. And for you I have given you My Holy Spirit to be in you and on you forever to lead you home. And He is resurrection power in you. And all who are My sons are led by Him. And where is He leading you? To Me, to joining as one with Me, knowing Me in Spirit and truth. Knowing My thoughts and sharing them in powerful ways on earth and in the heavenlies. Drawing you in to come back to the place from which you came and lost the way back. Eden, but more. A kingdom within.

Jesus told the questioning disciple Philip who thought if he could just see Me, he would be happy, like Moses of long ago had demanded. And Jesus explained, “Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works. Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe because of the works themselves.” John 14:9-11. Here you see where I want you to live, drawn back into Me where I can speak to you and enable you to do mighty works beyond all you can ask or imagine because you are back in your source where you are sustained and where you were meant to live and move and have your being. And then Jesus explained further, “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.” John 14:12-14. But how does that happen in your life? Jesus goes deeper still, “I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Paraclete, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. After a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also.  In that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.” John 14:16-20. And finally, you see our desire as Jesus said to Me, “The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity.” John 17:22. And His prayer is for all of you who believe My Word, “I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may continually believe that You sent Me.” John 17:20-21. Even now you can be back home in Me. David knew, “SURELY goodness and lovingkindness pursue, surround, and follow me all the days of my life and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD for length of days (that is, now and endless day).” Psalm 23:6.

My Will is to draw you all to Myself who is pure love. I made you in My image and likeness to be living in Me and I am with you. But people have lost their way to Me, not that I am not calling but their hearts are sluggish and  hard and it deafens their ears and blinds their eyes to My call. They stay in darkness rather than light because their deeds are evil and they avoid exposure.

Look at Gideon. He and the whole nation had lost their way, like sheep gone astray, they sought other gods. They did what was evil in My sight. Judges 6:1. They would sow seed but the enemy would come in and destroy their crops. Judges 6:3-6. He comes only to steal, kill, and destroy, but Adam did not recognize that. Israel was brought very low, and then they cried to Me. Judges 6:6. And I answered to draw them back in to Myself. I sent My Messenger to Gideon and what was My greeting? Not blame, not anger. I sought to draw Him back in to Me. So what was the greeting? “The LORD is with you, O valiant hero (in Hebrew it is a hero with the strength of an entire army).” Judges 6:12. And how would he conquer the enemy? “SURELY I will be with you and you shall defeat Median to the last man.” Judges 6:16. And that Messenger of Mine that came down to Gideon had a staff. Judges 6:21. In the dark valley of death, fear no evil, for your good Shepherd is with you with His rod and His staff that give you courage. And what was His final word to the fearful Gideon? “Peace to you, do not fear, you shall not die.” Judges 6:23. And that is My answer to you. Shalom is found in Me.

I also told the doubting and fearful Moses, “Certainly I will be with you.” Exodus 3:12. And what did My Son tell you as He ascended back to Me where He would also bring you? “And lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20. And what happens at the end of the age, the age of grace that you are in now? I gather the wheat into My barn when I catch you up into the clouds to meet My Son in the air at that great trumpet blast in a twinkling of an eye to be drawn back into Me.

For it was My good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Jesus, and through Him to reconcile all things to Myself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven. Colossians 1:19-20.

I love you. For now the wheat and the weeds are growing together because it may be what looks like a weed now will transform to a wheat before harvest, so I do not weed them out now, but at the end of the age, at the harvest, the great in-gathering, the wheat will be gathered into My barn but the weeds will not. And do you remember in My Son’s parable about this who planted the weeds? The evil one, the enemy’s hand. Be careful what you are planting in your heart or you may not be the wheat gathered into My barn and I want to gather you all back to Me. I do not want to lose anyone. All creation went out from Me. I want to pull it all back in. Will you help Me in this? Be reconciled and then become an ambassador of reconciliation.

Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:18-21.
