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; and I lay down My life for the sheep. John 10:14-15.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
When I change you from a sinner to a saint there is a change in ownership. I have rescued (rhuomai (ῥύομαι): to draw to oneself) you out of the realm of darkness and transferred you into the Kingdom of My Beloved Son, in whom you have redemption (apolutrósis (ἀπολύτρωσις): a release effected by payment of ransom) by His blood, the forgiveness of your sins. Colossians 1:13-14.
When you received Jesus Christ as your Lord as My gift to you, you became His and He became yours. He became your good Shepherd and you became a member of His flock for whom He laid down His eternal life in the flesh to become your resurrection and your life in the spirit.
The Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from their eyes. Revelation 7:17.
And all I have is His and all He has is Mine, so united in Him with Me, you became an owner of all—My Kingdom and all that goes with it.
Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32.
When you submitted to His lordship, you became brethren with Him and a citizen of My Kingdom. You became Mine and I thus obtained authority to act in your life to give you the Blessing of all as well as all those who have taken Him as Lord, My whole family in Heaven and on earth, and you submitted to being under the jurisdiction of the Head, namely Christ, the head of His body on earth, made up of the believers.
All I have is yours in Jesus. I hold nothing back.
And he said to him, “Son, you have always been with me, and all that is mine is yours.” Luke 15:31.
And that is Covenant. All I have is yours and all you have is Mine, and that is a beautiful place called grace where you can stand before Me with complete confidence and good will! I even invite you to sit on My throne with Me for the Lamb in the center of the has opened the Way, a new and living way to Me.
Having believed in His Name and joining up with My Spirit you enter Covenant with Me by your covenant with Jesus and His covenant with Me and, hence, I have authority to care for you, protect you, correct you, and perfect you. I can intervene in your life and work miracles, signs and wonders.
The Israelites I redeemed out of Egypt with outstretched arm were in Covenant with Me from the time of Abraham so I had authority to intervene in their lives to act on their behalf to rescue them out of slavery and fight their battles for them. When they cried for help I had to come to their aid just as Joshua and the army of Israel had to do for the Gibeonites after they made covenant with them.
Do not forget what is yours now that you have taken Jesus as Lord and there has been a change of ownership. Since Adam the devil had captured you in his snare, but I have set you free from the fowler’s snare and you are safe. I have lifted you from your place of servitude to the darkness to being children of My marvelous light. Once you were without Me and without covenant in the world but now you are Mine and I am yours forever.
The change of ownership that takes place when you take Jesus as Lord leaves fear behind. How is that? When you understand what I have given your with Him, you will find it is far beyond all you can ask or understand. With My Son you receive complete forgiveness for and cleansing from all your sins as if they had never been, you receive My righteousness as a gift, you are healed, you are provided for, you are redeemed from the curse of the law and receive only the blessings, I seal you in Christ and command Him to keep you and to raise you up on the last day, I give you My Holy Spirit to be in you and with you always to lead you, guide you to all truth, to show you the things to come, to give you the gifts, the fruit, and skills you need to live a successful and fruitful life of blessing. And I have given you the Kingdom. And My Kingdom is filled to overflowing with goodness, love, and light, righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
When you understand the treasures you have in Christ and that you have been given the Kingdom by Me, and that My gifts and calling are irrevocable, you have no fear. First, you have no fear of death, it is simply the entrance into the Kingdom that you already have ownership of by My gift to you. You have no fear of punishment for I have put all your sins on Jesus and already punished them. You have no fear that you will not have enough funds, because the Kingdom is full of riches, and I supply all your needs according to the riches of My glory in Christ Jesus so that you have all sufficiency and a surplus for every good work. No one and nothing can harm you when you already own it all and I have no intention of taking it back. I have always desired to give you everything with love. I have given you richly everything you need for life and godliness now and forever. In Jesus I have given you eternal life.
Jesus has taken you into His hands to keep you and guard you, but in His hand you are in My hand as well, and there is no snatching out of My hand. Jesus and I are One. I was in Him reconciling the world to Myself, not counting your trespasses against you.
In Jesus, I have given you My Covenant Names that contain My magnificent promises that make you partakers of My very nature. I AM the LORD your healer, receive that as your own. I AM the LORD who looks ahead and provides for you. Receive that Name as your own. I AM the LORD your righteousness, Jesus has made you righteous with My own righteousness. Receive the gift of righteousness and enjoy your promotion to being a righteous person not based on your works but on Mine in Jesus on your behalf. Rest in your righteousness and walk righteous, you will be far from the oppression of the accusations of the devil when you know what you have in Jesus. I AM the LORD your shalom—I give you My peace and wholeness in every area of your life. I AM the LORD your sanctifier, the LORD our deliverer, the LORD your refuge, the LORD your fortress, the LORD your strength, and the LORD your exceeding gladness and joy.
There is fullness of joy in My presence and in Jesus and My Holy Spirit in you and on you are always in My presence, in fact, you are seated with Me in Heaven in Christ Jesus.
And since you have the Kingdom, whatever is bound in Heaven, such as sickness, pain, and grief, you can bind on earth and whatever is loosed in Heaven, such as peace, joy, love, and light.
Very few people really understand what I have given you already in Christ and they are not using all My benefits but letting the devil blind their minds to them. Instead they take the attitude of a slave and not a son, as an enemy to Me and not a friend, as if they have cajole Me into giving them the good things that I have already given them in Christ. This is similar to the story My Son told of the prodigal son and his elder brother.
At the beginning of the story of the prodigal son there was a change of ownership. The father gave the inheritance to both of his sons equally, together they owned all the father had, but by giving that, the father had no lack, he just kept having more and more. But neither the elder son nor the prodigal son understood what they had. The elder son had it all but he thought he had barely enough and the father was withholding the good things from him. He saw himself as a slave and not an owner. The younger son saw himself as having wasted his inheritance and his life with nothing left and reduced himself to a slave and not an owner. Both were acting like slaves with nothing while all the time the father had already given them everything and given them the status of ownership. But the father called them sons and gave them all again and it pleased him to gladly give them his kingdom, so to speak. They were not slaves but sons, and joint heirs. But the father pleaded with the elder and threw a part for the younger. He wanted to call them friends.
I no longer call you slaves but friends.
You are My friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you. John 15:14-15.
I love you. Stop acting like a slave, or worse yet, a beggar, and begin acting like My son and friend that is what I have made you in Jesus. And everything I have is yours. Won’t you honor Me by partaking of it with joy?
Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; 3 seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. 2 Peter 1:1-4.
