And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אֱלֹהִים) says:
I am love and I loved you before you came to be. I knew you from eternity past and will know you through eternity future, if you can possibly separate one seamless eternity but there is eternity and then there is place of time within that eternity that Adam carved out by sin which brought death, which causes time to apply to your life from birth to death.
And in that place of time each person has an assignment for a certain time and place. And though it is within certain limitations, you determine how long you will live in time, what quality of life you will have in the window of time, and from that window comes where you will spend eternity. And there are only two choices, My Kingdom of Heaven, the Kingdom of Light, or the realm of darkness, the pit of fire, which is hell where the worm dies not and the fire is never extinguished.
But if you choose to align with Me under My jurisdiction, I have rescued you from the power of darkness and translated you into the Kingdom of My beloved Son, who is the Light of the world, in whom you have redemption, the forgiveness of your sins and in that place of grace in which the redeemed walk I can walk with you and in you by My Spirit.
And Jesus took back the throne of the Son of Man, and seated all of you who have taken Him as Lord there with Him, and knocked Satan off and he and those of the angelic host who followed him were routed out of My Kingdom and knocked down to the earth that Adam had handed over to him. But while Adam had a leasehold interest, I own the fee, and when that lease is up, Jesus, as true God and true Man, is worthy to take the scroll of My title deed and break the seals and take back the earth. The result will be the devil and his followers will be locked forever in hell and those who have chosen Me and eternal life by taking Jesus as Lord will reign with Me forever in new heavens and a new earth that I hand over to you. But I will be sure of all of you who have chosen Me though even faced with persecution and death that you will never do as Satan and Adam did. You have loved Me from My Word without seeing Me in the sense you physically see people. People saw Jesus but it was only a few that actually discerned the divine within Him. It took divine revelation.
At that very time He rejoiced greatly in the Holy Spirit, and said, “I praise You, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants. Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight. All things have been handed over to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.” Luke 10:21-22.
I now speak to you through My Son who is the exact image of My radiance and reveals Me, in seeing Him you see Me. You see love. And even though He is no longer physically among you, you can know Him and you can know Me by My Word and by My Spirit in you and on you. And you see My works in your life and the lives of others letting you know I am with you always. Without faith it is impossible to please Me because to come to Me you must believe that I AM and that I reward you who seek Me. You must believe that I am good and that I have your good in My heart always. I will only do good to you. Everything else is contrary to My divine nature which is love, pure unadulterated love. Absolute love. This is not known on earth due to the corruption caused by sin, but I pour My love into your hearts who believe by the gift of My Holy Spirit in you.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 8 and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, obtaining as the outcome of your faith the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:3-9.
Even though you have not seen Me, you love Me. After Adam’s fall from the spirit realm to the flesh realm, he could no longer see Me as he had before in the spirit. Your eyes of flesh cannot behold Me, I must be revealed to you in the Spirit. I became hidden from your view.
Surely, God is with you, and there is none else, no other God. Truly, You are a God who hides Himself, O God of Israel, Savior! Isaiah 45:14-15.
Even Jesus, when I raised Him from the dead did not entrust His appearance to anyone but those who had believed in Him and were true to Him. He did not show Himself to the Pharisees or others who had not believed in Him.
But Jesus, on His part, was not entrusting Himself to them, for He knew all men, and because He did not need anyone to testify concerning man, for He Himself knew what was in man. John 2:24-25.
Peter explained this to Cornelius and his household when I opened the door to him of preaching to the gentiles so they too could be saved and come to know the truth.
God raised Him up on the third day and granted that He become visible, not to all the people, but to witnesses who were chosen beforehand by God, that is, to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead. And He ordered us to preach to the people, and solemnly to testify that this is the One who has been appointed by God as Judge of the living and the dead. Acts 10:40-42.
And in your window of time, which is primarily a testing ground for your life that will determine your eternal destination, you want to be living the abundant life your good Shepherd came to give you here in the world now and preparing for reigning with Me forever in Heaven.
There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him; they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. And there will no longer be any night; and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will reign forever and ever. Revelation 22:3-5.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. John 10:10-11.
Jesus came and laid down His life as your good Shepherd so that you could have an abundant life filled with good days, peace, health, and prosperity even amidst the trials of this life on earth as it is now. He came to give you My plan of shalom for your life, even in the window of time that became a testing ground for where you will spend eternity.
When I first made mankind, Eden was your dwelling and that was the abundant life and it was forever life. You were to increase and multiply and expand Eden to the entire earth as My family. The highest Heaven was Mine, but I gave the earth to you as My family who walked with Me, but it was your place to rule and reign in accordance with My goodness and love, for you were created in My image and according to My likeness. Psalm 115:16; Psalm 8:6-8. Adam also had a throne in Heaven as Son of Man.
Lucifer, now known as the devil or Satan, was a cherub and I placed him in Eden as the guardian angel who covered the life of My first man and woman.
Both Adam and Lucifer rebelled against My Word and left the realm of Light for the realm of the outer darkness of the continuum. As far from Me as they had been close before.
Lucifer took one-third of My angelic host with him and he took the man and woman I had created with him as well. They all had failed the test of eternity and fell into time, for the wages of sin is death for angelic as well as human beings. The man abdicated his authority over the earth and his throne to Satan. But I had a plan. A good plan.
I sent My Son, the anointed one (Messiah), as the second and last Adam. He, like Adam when he had been created, was born of My imperishable Word. No seed that Adam had corrupted to sickness, defects and death was received to conceive Jesus, it was merely the Word that birthed Him in the flesh as it had Adam. Jesus again had an eternal life in the flesh, which Adam had before he sinned and lost that eternal life, and Jesus was able to satisfy divine justice by giving His eternal life in the flesh for the eternal life Adam lost. A life for a life. And no one of Adam’s line had an eternal life to offer. Only Jesus as created again from My Word could redeem the human race by paying what you owed to Me with His own eternal blood.
But He could only die by taking all your sins into His sinless flesh as your sin offering, which He did in that hour in the Garden of Gethsemane when He was in such anguish over receiving the vileness of sin into his being, though He had never sinned. It made Him sweat blood in His agony. But when I confirmed it was My Will so all mankind would be reconciled with Me and have the opportunity to again embrace eternal life, He did it for the joy that lay before Him because of His great love for you to release you from your sins and bring you into His eternal covenant with Me.
Now, I would like to ask you a question which I answer in My Word in many places, but first we will go to David’s Spirit sent Psalm 34: Which of you desire good days so that you may see good and not evil? How do you secure good days?
Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit. Depart from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. Psalm 34:19.
Keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from speaking deceit. You must depart from evil and do good, seek peace and pursue it. Here is the lifestyle that sees good days.
But now I want to share good news with you. I give you good days if you love Me and are walking in My purpose, your part in My vision for the world, and your part is very important. Read this carefully, it is a promise to you who are in Christ Jesus, but beyond that, it is for you who love Me, whose hearts are turned towards Me:
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28.
This is Love’s return to those who love Him. I make everything work together for your good no matter what people, Satan, the world or even the weakness of your own flesh have put up against you, I will orchestrate it for your good. No weapon formed against you will prosper and every tongue raised against you, you will prove false, your righteous vindication is from Me.
You see this in the life of Jacob’s son Joseph. It looked like everyone was against him to bring him down to a bad end—first, his brothers were so jealous of him they planned to kill him but due to the intervention of Reuben, they did not, but instead they sold him to a band of Ishmaelites going to trade in Egypt and he was sold as a slave. He was purchased to work in the fields of a man named Potiphar and he put him to labor on his farm. Joseph had tended sheep but he had never farmed. But I tell you I was with Joseph. Why? He love Me and trusted Me to work things out for him. He did not lose hope, despair or resent what his brothers had done. He did the best he could do right where he was because no matter where he was he was conscious that I was with him. And I prospered the work of his hands and he made his master prosperous. He served him well as unto Me and not as unto men.
But then again, people came against him. This time Potiphar’s wife who tried to force him into the sin of adultery but he responded he would not do that before Me. He was aware of My presence though he could not see Me. And he took the consequences of denying her by being unjustly imprisoned.
But even there he did not give up hope of it all working out for his good. And I was with him. His love for Me invited My presence with him in that jail and I made good happen for him in that dark and dreaded place. He was such an excellent prisoner that the jailer put Joseph in charge of the prison, though Joseph had never run a prison or any other entity in his life.
And then, in his concern and compassion for the other prisoners, he interpreted the dreams of two of them, and what he interpreted with My help came to pass as true. He asked the one who was returned to be the cupbearer of Pharoah to remember him for he did not belong in prison. But it seemed nothing was working out because the cupbearer forgot about him and said nothing to Pharaoh on Joseph’s behalf for two more years, making it thirteen years since his brothers had sold him. And nothing seemed to be better, in fact, it was worse because he was in prison and was not free as he had been with his own quarters and managing Potiphar’s property. But Joseph remained faithful to Me through it all and had no ill will or blame of anyone. He was watching Me in love.
And then I gave Pharaoh a dream that no one could interpret. And the cupbearer remembered Joseph. Pharaoh called for him and Joseph trusted Me to give him the interpretation, which I did. And I not only gave him the interpretation but the solution. I gave him the plan that would carry out the dream. Pharaoh had the dream, but Joseph had the plan. And Pharaoh recognized greatness with he saw it. He made Joseph the ruler of all, only under Pharaoh as to the throne, but in authority equal.
And Joseph saved Egypt in seven years of famine and all the nations around Egypt who experienced the same. Joseph made Pharaoh rich and kept all the peoples alive with food to eat. He also saved his family, the very brothers who sold him, and brought them all to Egypt where he cared for them like royalty. All are blessed by one who loves. And I was blessed by him as well.
I make everything work together for good for those who love Me and are called according to My purpose. And Joseph knew from his dreams as a youth that he was called to rule and reign with Me. Do you know that?
And what did Joseph tell his brothers to quiet their fears that he would retaliate against them for what they had done to him?
Joseph said to them, “Do not be afraid, for am I in God’s place? As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive. So therefore, do not be afraid; I will provide for you and your little ones.” So he comforted them and spoke kindly to them. Genesis 50:19-21.
They meant evil but I meant good. Let Me turn your life around so all things work together for your good. And why do I do that? Because you love Me and are seeking to walk with Me in bringing My Kingdom to the earth. A great reward is yours of goodness, here and in eternity.
How great is Your goodness, which You have stored up for those who love You, which You have wrought for those who take refuge in You, before the sons of men! You hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the conspiracies of man; You keep them secretly in a shelter from the strife of tongues. Psalm 31:19-20.
I love you. And you love Me. Let Me make all things work together for good in your life. But for Me to do that you must walk in love of Me and that includes love for your fellow man. For no one who loves Me walks in the darkness of hate for his brother, no he walks in the Light of life, which is love. Like Joseph.
Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name. He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. with long life I will satisfy him and show him My salvation. Psalm 91:14-16.
