What we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ. 1 John 1:3.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
Fellowship. That is what pleases Me most. I made you for fellowship with Me and with one another in Me. All one in Me and My Son, sealed together in the Holy Spirit. And fellowship involves partnership for in true fellowship there is oneness of love, purpose, pursuit, and action.
Do you know that ultimately fellowship with Me through My Son is the only thing that will bring you into My Kingdom?
This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. John 17:3.
That is the goal of your life on earth and that relationship will translate you right into My eternal Kingdom.
Fellowship is walking with Me now through the trials of this world and then right over with Me into forever where there are no more trials, no more pain, no more mourning, no more anxiety, no more lack and poverty, no more sickness or disease, no more disabilities, and no more death, but above all, no more evil or darkness, only goodness, love, and light, only righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. It is the way I made everything to be from the start, Adam changed all that, but Jesus restored all and not just to what it was, but to much better than before, for in Him, Heaven and earth become one new Kingdom as you reign with Me in perfect fellowship and partnership forever. And in My Kingdom there is no confusion, rebellion, or rivalry because we are one in love, purpose, desire, pursuit, and action.
And if you have pursued fellowship with Me, when the time comes that you leave this life as you know it now, I will not need to say, “I never knew you,” for we will know each other very well and your entrance is assured. In fact, in the spirit, you have already crossed over the threshold into My house even now if you are in fellowship with Me.
Enoch lived sixty-five years, and became the father of Methuselah. Then Enoch walked with God three hundred years after he became the father of Methuselah, and he had other sons and daughters. 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 5:21-24.
Enoch is in the initial list of those descended from Adam until the time of Noah. He is the only one of all the descendants from Adam until Noah that had fellowship with Me. Not because I was not there for fellowship, I was, but because no one was interested in pursuing it with Me except him.
And yet, if you truly understand fellowship as partaking of My divine nature and the flow of Heaven, of being connected to your true source, as a fish living in the water and not struggling for life on dry ground, then fellowship should be a number one priority in your life if you want a complete and fruitful life that will assure you of your reception into the everlasting Kingdom.
True fellowship is not one-sided either way, it is seamless agreement. Both with the same mindset—thinking, speaking, and acting alike even when one seems to be acting alone. But with divine fellowship you are never alone, you are never away from Me. If you seek Me you will find Me right there with you. When you draw close to Me, then I can draw close to you, for I am already at your side.
“And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him.” John 8:29.
Jesus and I had one purpose and one love. In seeing Him you see Me. We were both pleased in each other. He knew Me and I knew Him. We are One. Our hands were acting as one in healing, blessing, providing, and saving.
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” John 10:27-30.
And Jesus draws you into our fellowship as your great good Shepherd whom I raised from the dead by the blood of the eternal Covenant to equip you for every good work in partnership with Him.
God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 1 Corinthians 3:9.
Now in fellowship with Me and My Son, we can work as one, carrying on the works He did and greater with, in, and through you as His body in the world. And that is oneness indeed.
I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me, even as the Father knows Me and I know the Father. John 10:14-15.
He brought you into where He is with Me. As He is so are you in the world.
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. John 14:3.
And where is Jesus? In My very bosom, in the center of My throne, for He is the expression of My deepest self, begotten and brought forth by My Spirit from the depths of My being, the radiance of My glory and My Word of power that created all and sustains all and holds it all together. And He is the way into that secret place of deepest fellowship in My Spirit.
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all. 1 Corinthians 13:14.
Why then have many not entered therein? Why are you not in that perfect place of fellowship and partnership? Many stay in the outer court and never enter the Holy of Holies for they are having fellowship not only with Me but also with the devil. You cannot mix light and darkness, good and evil, and be at the same time one with light and goodness.
Or what harmony has Christ with the devil, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God. 2 Corinthians 6:15-16.
Jesus comes to your heart to fellowship and dine with you and you with Him.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. Revelation 3:20.
You cannot be dining with the enemy as well. The table I set is for you and not for your enemy.
You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons. 1 Corinthians 10:21.
And here we come to controlling your tongue and the thoughts that impel your tongue.
What do I mean by drinking from the cup of demons? Well, Jesus took the cup and made covenant with you in His blood. And His blood not only paid your ransom with Me and satisfied divine justice for the eternal life Adam murdered for all of you, but that precious blood also cleansed away every stain of sin in you so that in your spirit now it is as if sin never touched you. And in the pristine purity of your spirit, just as in the Holy of holies, nothing impure can enter there.
What makes you impure and defiles your temple? Let Jesus tell you for I speak to you through My Son:
And He was saying, “That which proceeds out of the man, that is what defiles the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride and foolishness. All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man.” Mark 7: 20-23.
You drink and eat at the table of demons when you drink in and eat their lies and speak out anxiety, worry, fear, doubt, unbelief, anger, unforgiveness, bitterness, gossip, obscenity, hatred, jealousy, lies and misrepresentations. These thoughts and words are fellowship with the devil and his demons and not with Me.
Jesus kept up perfect fellowship with Me and He told you how, the devil had nothing in Him.
And now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe. I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me. But that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father gave Me commandment, so I do. John 14:29-31.
That is what ruined Adam’s fellowship with Me, he gave the devil a part in him, in fact, he gave over his whole heart to him. The same with Solomon, he went to drinking the cup of demons by worshipping idols and turning away his heart from Me. And yet both Adam and Solomon had been close to Me in fellowship.
Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen. 1 John 5:21.
Be careful what you hear, who you give your heart to, and what you say.
Samson ran into that wile of the devil in Delilah. He gave his heart to the enemy in lust and immorality, and that made Me leave him to go his own way. And he was taken captive by the enemy who proceeded to afflict him and destroy his destiny. Judges 16:18-21.
But there is an answer here that My servant James gives you from the inspiration he received in fellowship with My Spirit.
But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, “God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. James 4:6-8.
You submit to Me the way you do to anyone; you choose to hear, obey, keep, and do their words over those of yourself and others. And it is with My Words that you answer and resist the devil’s lies. For truth trumps a lie. So you cast out demons with My Word, as Jesus gave you who believe in His Name the authority to do, and the devil and his demons must flee from you. But that is not enough for fellowship with Me. You cast the demon out and then draw close to Me. You let Me fill you with My Spirit and there is no place in you for an evil spirit.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance. Acts 2:4.
Give no place to the devil. It is not a good choice to submit to him and resist Me for he does not have your best interests in mind as I do. Eve thought the devil desired to make her great, no longer needing Me but running the world on her own with Adam, but she found out otherwise when the glory left her and she hid in shame and fear. And her answer? She explained to Me that she had been deceived.
Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” And the woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.” Genesis 3:13.
Watch yourself, watch the words you hear and the words you eat. Death and life are in the power of your tongue. Choose life that you and your descendants may live. My Words are Spirit and life. They are words of eternal life.
I have spread out a table for you in the sight of your foes, anointed your head with oil, and overflow your cup, why would you go eat elsewhere? My Words are not idle words, they are your very life.
My Word made you, My Word saved you, and My Word sustains you. Why would you choose other words?
And why would you fellowship with anyone but Me and My Son who are offering you the joy of eternal life?
So Jesus said to the twelve, “You do not want to go away also, do you?” Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life. We have believed and have come to know that You are the Holy One of God.” John 6:67-69.
But above all else, fellowship with Me is sweet. Nowhere else will find rest and peace in this world but in fellowship with Me.
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30.
How is it you draw close to Me? Not in anger and bitterness, not in begging and pleading, not in shame and fear, but with confidence, joy, reverence and awe as you come to receive mercy and find grace just when you need it. And come to share your thoughts and dreams with Me as I share Mine with you. Come for revelation, impartation, and consolation. Let us walk together and do amazing things that gather the whole world in My love. Let Me light up your life with My love as you light up Mine with yours.
“His mouth is full of sweetness. And He is altogether lovely. This is my Beloved and this is my Friend.” Song of Songs 5:16.
I have called you to fellowship, why would you ignore so great an invitation? Why would you fellowship with the devil over Me? You will know if you are fellowshipping with him for you will be worried, fearful, distracted, depressed, angry, unforgiving, gossiping, and you will not be at peace. You may not have considered those thoughts as fellowshipping with the devil but they are.
In the parable of the prodigal son, the elder son never went off and sinned but he rejected fellowship with the father. The father even went out and pleaded with him to come and join the celebration but he would not. He accused the father of not giving him anything but what he never understood was the father had already given him everything plus being with him always. He only had to reach out and take what was his.
And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me and all that is mine is yours. Luke 15:31.
Many of you are like that. You resent Me and say I do not give you things. But in Jesus, I have already given you everything, even My Kingdom, for everything is in Him.
It is time to change who you are fellowshipping with and found out from My Spirit what I have freely given you and enjoying it.
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God. 1 Corinthians 2:12.
You cannot serve two masters. You cannot straddle the fence and be truly committed to Me. All in or all out. If you are lukewarm you know the result.
I love you. Just take in My Words, resist the devil, and he will flee, then draw close to Me and enter fellowship, also known as worship. Above everything else you can do, fellowship is the most pleasing of all to Me. Is that not true in your life as well with your spouse and your children? Their greatest achievements are nothing to you without sweet fellowship also. And when you stay in fellowship with Me, your life will be sweet, filled with wisdom and revelation, from glory to glory until you step over into the Glory in glory forever.
Rest in God alone, O my soul, for my hope comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress; I will not be shaken. Psalm 62:5.
