I glorified You on the earth, having accomplished the work which You have given Me to do. Now, Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was. John 17:4-5.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
As you give so you shall receive. You reap what you sow. These are spiritual laws that cannot be broken.
Give Me glory and you receive glory. Give Me honor and you receive honor. I honor those who honor Me. I glorify those who glorify Me.
For those whom He foreknew, He also preordained to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; 30 and these whom He preordained, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? Romans 8:29-31.
If you want renewal of youth, glorify Me in your body and glorify Me in your speech by renewing your mind to My Word.
If anyone does not stumble in what he says (in word), he is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body as well. James 3:2.
And how do you glorify Me? It all has to do with what you do about Jesus. You glorify Me when you acknowledge and believe that in Jesus I took away all your sins as if they had never been, justified you, and made you righteous and confess Him as Lord.
And every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 1:11.
And you glorify Me when you pray in the Name of Jesus.
Whatever you ask in My Name that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. John 14:13.
When you believe in the great work I have done for you and honor that, which gives Me glory, but there is more. Much more. The glory of the parent is in the fruitfulness and glory of the child. The child is a reflection of the parent.
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14.
For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6.
I am glorified in My Son Jesus for the fruitful and perfect work He did. Jesus prayed to Me at the last Passover meal He celebrated on earth, “I glorified You on the earth, having accomplished the work which You have given Me to do.” John 17:4.
And now, having received Him, He gave you the authority to be My children.
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the authority to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of bloods nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. John 1:12-13.
How do you give Me glory? Jesus told you the answer:
My Father is glorified by this, that you become disciples to Me so that you bear much fruit. John 15:8.
You give Me glory the same way My Son Jesus did, being fruitful in doing the work I gave you to do, the life I prepared for you in Christ Jesus of good deeds.
But Jesus told you to become fruitful so as to give Me glory, you must become a disciple of His, for He is the vine and you are the branches and I am the vine dresser.
And how do you become disciples to Jesus? He Himself tells you:
“If you continue (remain, abide) in My Word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:31-32.
If you abide in Him, and His Words abide in you, then you ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. Why? If you are abiding in My Word you will be seeking what glorifies Me, for My Word, if planted and cultivated, which is what abiding is about, bears fruit, much fruit. And I am glorified in this, that you bear much fruit, by becoming disciples of Jesus, which since He is no longer physically present on the earth, means that you are disciples of My Word. Followers of My Word. For the only words Jesus ever permitted Himself to speak were Mine, for He is My Word. In the past I spoke to you through the prophets but now I speak to you directly through My Son. We are One. And we speak to you by the Holy Spirit in you who is One with us as well.
So how do you give Me glory? You bear much fruit by being a hearer, speaker, and doer of My Word. If you are attached to the vine of Jesus by abiding in My Word and My Word abiding in you, you will, like any branch firmly attached to a good vine, produce fruit. It is just what happens from the flow that comes into the branch from the vine.
There is only one way, once you are born again by receiving Jesus, which gives Me honor and glory, that you will not glorify Me in your life by bearing fruit. And that is if you hinder the flow from the vine into you.
And you do this by acting like the ungodly, which is no longer who you are in Christ Jesus. You do it by worry, fear, backing down to intimidation and persecution, addictions, lustful actions with your body (which is now a temple of My Spirit and is holy), unforgiveness, bitter roots, hate, guilt, shame, blame, remorse (not repentance), and a mind set on the flesh. It all has to do with what you are permitting yourself to listen to, think upon, speak, and do. It all depends on whether you are receiving My implanted Word, which has the power to save your souls (mind, will, and emotions).
Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls. James 1:21,
My church, the Body of Christ, should not be acting like the ungodly any more than Jesus did. And you should not be retreating in the face of opposition any more than Jesus did. You are to be doing the works He did and greater for you are attached to the vine and bear the same fruit of as the vine, who is Jesus. And you have the same HOLY Spirit dwelling in you.
I want My Church to be on the forefront of society, not on the back burner, hiding from the world. I want you leading the direction of the government by prayer and action, by careful voting, by becoming candidates for office—in any way I equip and call you. I want you to be at the forefront of technology and scientific discoveries, using all for My purposes to edify, exhort, encourage and enlighten, to save souls and raise up a body of courageous believers—super conquerors who conquer evil with good and hate with true, pure love, and not for Satan’s impure, corrupted, perverted, and violent schemes. It is time you took over the airways.
I am looking for fruit. Jesus looked for it on the fig tree and when it bore no fruit He cursed it and it withered and dried up from the roots. And when He told the parable of the unfruitful fig tree in the vineyard, He asked Me for permission to keep working on it for another year and if it was not fruitful then I could cut it down. And that is not renewal of youth.
There are many of you that I have looked for fruit for many years, I am patient because I want no one to perish but all to come to repentance and be saved, but soon there will be no more time and you will be cut down, not by Me but by the devil you have served, the one for whom you have borne fruit, he will destroy your body until you are a mass of carnage that cannot even manage to get out of the bed on your own.
Be careful about this. For if you have taken Jesus as Lord you will be saved but the deeds of your life will be wood, hay and stubble, even though you rest on the foundation of Jesus, and they will be consumed at the Judgment seat of Christ and your reward will be lost.
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 2 Corinthians 5:10.
And My apostle Paul wrote that passage to believers in Corinth who were still behaving like unbelievers.
You were saved by grace, not by works, and put firmly on the foundation of Jesus but that is not the end. You are now building the edifice of your life on that foundation.
Grace teaches you to live godly and give yourself to the doing of good deeds in the body which glorify Me by showing My goodness, My power, and My presence to the world so that others too may be saved and come to know the truth.
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing (disciplining) us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds. Titus 2:11-14.
Read that passage that My Spirit spoke through My apostle Paul, who proved himself fruitful, again and you will see that it is by My grace you are saved and by My grace you are empowered to live godly, for grace is My divine life flowing into you as the branch on the vine.
And you should be looking for the glory to be revealed in you whom My Son has redeemed from every lawless deed and purified in His Blood and washed in My Word as His Body the Church for a life of good deeds I prepared in advance. Keep yourself pure.
Why wouldn’t you want to enjoy the good deeds I prepared for you? They are all provided for and ready for you to walk out with your great good Shepherd.
I love you. Glorify Me in your body and stop playing with the things of Satan, the things of the ungodly, and seek the things above where I have already seated you in Christ so I can give you glory on the last day. Then I can renew your youth since the devil will have no part in your body.
Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory. Colossians 3:1-4.
