For the LORD takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation. Psalm 149:4.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
If you are living in My Light things look bright, you see your days and future full of good things.
Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose trust is the LORD. For he will be like a tree planted by the water, that extends its roots by a stream and will not fear when the heat comes; but its leaves will be green, and it will not be anxious in a year of drought nor cease to yield fruit. Jeremiah 17:7-8.
But if you are living in the dark, things look bleak and stark, a dry place where there is no water. And I tell you this, if you are living in the darkness of fear, shame, guilt, self-condemnation, depression, lust, addiction, sickness, pain, bitterness, regret, and immorality, even if you are a believer, you do not know who I AM. Why can I say that? You are relying on your flesh and not on My grace. You do not know and understand the Scriptures (My written Word) or My power. Mark 12:24. Your heart is turned away from Me and is on yourself, you are not living in My Light.
Thus says the LORD, “Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind and makes flesh his strength, and whose heart turns away from the LORD. For he will be like a bush in the desert and will not see when good (prosperity, beauty) comes, but will live in stony wastes in the wilderness, a land of salt without inhabitant. Jeremiah 17:5-6.
When you know Me in the truth of My Word and walk in the Light of that truth, you fear nothing. This is the most beautiful gift you can give yourself. Stop tormenting yourself and staying in the dark as you look only at yourself and your merits. Start looking at Me and I tell you to keep your eyes on Jesus, and you will begin to have and enjoy your life for you will know I AM there for you to make you beautiful and new every day, all day, every night, all night.
In Jesus I make your life beautiful, the most beautiful life ever lived. I want to drive out your darkness, by the wonderful light that I give. Oh come to Me and let Me fill your life with My Love, come to Me, come to Me, as I call your name from above. For I am your God and with joy I sing over you, let Me see your face, let Me hear your voice, for you are lovely and your voice to Me is sweet.
My heart’s desire is to make your life beautiful, wonderful, sweet, and filled with Light and I did that for you in Jesus, for He came to do My Will and My Will was His delight. Psalm 40:7-8, Hebrews 10:5-9. And by My Will you have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. Hebrews 10:10.
For the LORD takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation (Yeshuah). Psalm 149:4.
How do I do this? By the Blood, the Water, and the Spirit.
Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? This is the One who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not with the water only, but with the water and with the blood. It is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify: the Spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. 1 John 5:5-8.
And to what do they testify? That in Jesus you have eternal life.
And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. 1 John 5:11-12,
I make you beautiful and complete in Christ. I fill you with Myself in Christ. I am living in Him, He is living in Me, and you who have received Him as Lord are living in Him and He is living in you, so you are One with Me and My Son and that is eternal life. And eternal life is beautiful and is a life of joy unspeakable filled with glory as you watch everyone of My promises manifest in your life as you walk in the Light, which means being a doer of My Word in the way you think, speak, and act upon My promises.
These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life. This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him. 1 John 5:13-15.
Jesus also described this deep relationship of confidence where there are no hindrances between us, which is eternal life, as a vine with its branches bearing much fruit. You are the branches, He is the vine, and I am the vine grower and vineyard owner. When you abide in His Words and they abide in you, then His grace, My divine life, flows into you through Him as a channel to you from Me fitting My divinity into your humanity through the filter of His humanity. Making us again of one nature as it was in the beginning.
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples. John 15:7-8.
Jesus defines disciples as those who believe in Him, and continue (abide, remain, dwell) in His Word so that they know the truth and the truth sets them free. John 8:31-32. Free from what? The darkness and the things of the darkness that have been tormenting you and holding you captive your whole life long. When you come to Jesus and walk in the Light of My Word, you are set free, and whom My Son sets free is free indeed. But first, to begin the process of beautifying and making your glorious, He frees and releases you from your sins by His blood and then He frees your life from sin by the renewal and washing of your soul and body in the Water of My Word and the living water of the Holy Spirit.
This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with the Father, and the blood of Jesus His Son continually cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:5-7.
It is a continual process of beautifying and sanctifying you in the Blood and in the Word. You overcome the devil by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of your testimony (My Words out of your mouth), not seeking the passing glory of the worldly minded founded on reliance and pride in the flesh, but seeking first the glory that is eternal.
How do you participate in this process? With rejoicing, prayer, and thanksgiving. And that is My Will for you in Christ Jesus so that I can beautify you with His merits, beauty, and glory.
Praise the Lord! Sing to the LORD a new song, and His praise in the congregation of the godly ones. Let Israel (in Jesus you are descendants of Abraham and heirs of My covenant promises) be glad in his Maker; let the sons of Zion (you have now come to the heavenly Mt Zion, the church of the first-born) rejoice in their King. Let them praise His name with dancing; let them sing praises to Him with timbrel and lyre. For the LORD takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the afflicted ones with salvation (Yeshuah). Let the godly ones exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged (two mouthed) sword in their hand. Psalm 149:1-6.
Rejoice in Me with joyful songs of praise for all I have done and am doing for you in Christ, even on your beds, and keep My Word in the hand of your tongue. That is your part in the beautifying of your life. Do not look at your impurities and the fiery darts of dark thoughts the devil shoots into your mind. Just simply answer them that you are pure, forgiven, healed, washed in the Blood and the water of the Word in Christ
Clothe yourself in Christ. How? Believe in your heart that I put all your sins on Him, punished them justly, and raised Him from the dead free from sin having more than satisfied your judgment and more than paid all your debt for sin. Then freed from sin, clothe yourself in Him by being baptized into Him.
For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. Galatians 3:26-17.
You are now clothed in the garments of Salvation (Yeshuah) and the robe of righteousness. You have washed your robes and made them white in the Blood of the Lamb.
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.
But there is more, much more. Jesus is your great High Priest, and do you recall what I instructed Moses about the garments for the High Priest and his priest sons? They were to be garments of glory and beauty that would consecrate them to Me. Exodus 28:2-3. And Jesus has released you from your sins by His Blood and made you a kingdom, priests consecrated unto Me. You are dressed in garments of glory and beauty.
When I first made you, I clothed you in glory and majesty and gave you dominion over the works of My hands. Psalm 8:5-6. And now I give you even more beauty, a headdress of beauty, for your ashes and a garment of praise in place of a listless spirit. For Jesus is the fulfillment of the burnt offering where your sins turned to ash, but now it is even better for in place of your sins that made you defiled, in Jesus, I give you back the beauty in which I first formed you in My image and according to My likeness. I have given you the crown of righteousness and made you a new creation in Christ. I have delivered you out of darkness into My own marvelous light and made you a royal priesthood singing in majestic chorus.
And I do it all in My light.
I love you. Let Me make your life beautiful, the most beautiful life ever lived. I do it in the Light, the Light of the world. Jesus. Yeshuah. Your salvation in every situation of your life.
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 will 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. And the angel of the Lord admonished Joshua, saying, “Thus says the LORD of hosts, ‘If you will walk in My ways and if you will perform My service, then you will also govern My house and also have charge of My courts, and I will grant you free access among these who are standing here. Now listen, Joshua the high priest, you and your friends who are sitting in front of you—indeed they are men who are a symbol, for behold, I am going to bring in My servant the Branch. For behold, the stone that I have set before Joshua; on one stone are seven eyes. Behold, I will engrave an inscription on it,’ declares the LORD of hosts, ‘and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day. ‘In that day,’ declares the LORD of hosts, ‘every one of you will invite his neighbor to sit under his vine and under his fig tree.’” Zechariah 3:1-10.
