To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood and made us a kingdom, priests to our God and Father be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen! Revelation 1:5-6.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:

Your life should be all “ups” and no “downs.” Jesus already won the victory FOR YOU. He took all your sins, ills, pains, and lack—all that divided you from Me—and bore it in His own body and set you free from the curse of the law.

Surely our illnesses He Himself bore, and our pains He carried; yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; but the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him. Isaiah 53:4-6.

In the first chapter of the Book of Revelation I have given you a powerful message about this forgiveness in Jesus that sums up what I done for you in My great great love. Nothing is too hard for Me that involves saving you to have you with Me forever in glory.

To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood and made us a kingdom, priests to our God and Father be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen! Revelation 1:5-6.

My great love and care for you is manifested in My work for you in Jesus. I accounted all your sins to Jesus and satisfied in full the debt you owed My divine justice for sin in the sufferings and death of Jesus. And I did this so you could come to Me without hindrance or fear, holy and blameless before Me. Jesus paid with His eternal life in the flesh the eternal life Adam had lost for you all, and the life is in the blood. So Jesus bought for you an eternal redemption because Jesus, virgin born of the Word, had eternal blood to give.

But what am I telling you in this precious Scripture that My beloved John wrote down for you from the things I showed him when he was exiled to the island of Patmos for being My witness? All the following and more:

(i) To Him who loves us: You are beloved.

You are loved by Me with a love beyond any love you can know in this world, you are loved with an eternal, never ending, never changing, but ever-increasing love, and I AM love.

Many people, even believers, have not come to know and believe in the love I have for them. They have listened too long to the accusations of the devil and the words of often well meaning people who have not let them forget the sins they have done. They are still oppressed by their sins, but the good news is My Son did not come to judge you but to save you.

For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation. Romans 5:6-11.

He took the judgment due you and bore it in His own body so that you would be set free from sin and all its guilt, oppression, blame, shame, and oppression. He lifted it off you and bore it Himself and in exchange gave you His sinless, perfect righteous life that now you can live through Him.

By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:9-10.

And I did not just start to love you because you received Jesus and your sins are gone. No. I sent Jesus to take your sins away because I have loved you with an everlasting love and I delighted in taking away all that divided us so you could walk with Me again in the light.

The LORD appeared to me from afar, saying, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness. Jeremiah 31:3.

Before you knew Me, I knew you and I called you by name as My own.

I have called you by name; you are Mine! . . . Since you are precious in My sight, you are honored, and I love you. Isaiah 43:1,4.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you. Jeremiah 1:5.

It is because of My great love for you that I reconciled you to Myself in Christ. I did not want to lose you so I figured out a way to have you as My own.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-7.

And now we continue with the Scripture of Revelation 1:5-6, which is about YOU. You just looked at the opening words about Jesus, “To Him who loves us,” so now let us go the very next words therein and see what they tell you.

(ii) and released us from our sins by His blood: You are forgiven and set free as if sin had never been.

You are forgiven and released from your sins and failings. I did that for you in Jesus coming as one like you to take away your sins and make them as if they had never been. You have washed your robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Revelation 7:14.

And here I will share some passages of My promises to in accord with that you are forgiven, but not just forgiven, I count your sins and faults gone as if they had never been. What Christ took from you is no longer yours. What He gave to you is yours forever.

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 5:21.

But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:4-7.

Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins by His blood. Colossians 1:12-14.

For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven. And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach. Colossians 1:19-22.

“I, even I, am the one who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake, And I will not remember your sins.” Isaiah 43:25.

And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us; for after saying, “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws upon their heart, and on their mind I will write them,” He then says, “And their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” Hebrews 10:15-17.

And I will now ask you to consider My promises of benefits to you in Psalm 103. For all My promises are “Yes” to you in Christ Jesus, and there are many wonderful, magnificent promises.

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits; He pardons all your iniquities, He heals all your diseases; He redeems your life from the pit, He crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; He satisfies your years with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle. Psalm 103:2-5.

And all these benefits that I promise to you, My covenant people, bring us to the next part of the promise in Revelation 1:5-6. “To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood and made us a kingdom . . .”

(iii) and made us a kingdom: You are Blessed.

You are blessed beyond measure—Jesus has made you a kingdom, a royal family of His own bearing His Name at which everything must bow and obey. It has pleased Me to give you, the little flock of Jesus, the Kingdom of Heaven. And it is full of the ABUNDANCE of good things. There is no reason for you to lack anything, just receive and take what I have already supplied in the Spirit so it can manifest in your life and the lives of your family members.

Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him in love. Ephesians 1:3-4.

It is the righteous person who is blessed, and you are that in Christ Jesus. In Him, I have made you righteous with My own righteousness.

Blessings are on the head of the righteous. Proverbs 10:6.

And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, heirs according to promise and My blessing makes rich and adds no sorrow with it.

The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “All the nations will be blessed in you.” So then those who are of faith are blessed with Abraham, the believer. Galatians 3:8-9.

And now we look at the conclusion of Revelation 1:5-6. I have made you a royal priesthood. Kings and priests. I gave you the Kingdom and I have given you the position to reign with Me as My royal priesthood, and that is beyond all you can ask or imagine.

(iv)  priests to our God and Father: You are Favored!

My Face is shining on you to release on you showers of blessing. You, as My royal priesthood, can draw close to Me in the very Holy of Holies, My secret place, the throne of grace, and minister onto Me in prayer and partnership with the great things I am doing in your life and in the world! In the Old Covenant only the priests could enter the inner court of the Tabernacle and only the High Priest could go into the Holy of Holies, but now with and in Jesus, your great High Priest, I invite YOU to come into the secret place of My throne of grace with confident love to receive mercy and find grace and favor just when you need it.

Now I want you to affirm in your heart and confess with your mouth saying: “I am beloved, forgiven, blessed, and favored. That is the story of My life now and forever.”

I desire above all things and in all areas of your life to bless you and make your life beautiful, the most beautiful life ever lived. And each you is unique with your own assignment from Me all prepared for you in advance that you may walk in it. It would be a shame to reject so wonderful an honor and privilege by turning to other “gods” and lifestyles contrary to the truth of My Word.

There will never be another you. Your fingerprints, DNA, voice, and the irises of your eyes are like no one else from the beginning to the day Jesus returns. I have blessed, favored, honored and fashioned each one of you with loving detail and care.

Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah. Psalm 62:8.

I love you, and that is why I have blessed you from the day I created you and before. I have loved you with an everlasting love, I have redeemed you and released you from your sins, I have blessed you from the start, and I have smiled upon you with favor all the days of your life. And it will get better and better, brighter and brighter, until you come to shine in My Kingdom forever. And in our next life lesson we will talk about how I redeemed you from the curse and blessed your life in amazing ways.
