“See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity; in that I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the LORD your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it.” Deuteronomy 30:15-16.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
Everything for Me is today. I am outside but also in time. I know the end from the beginning and the beginning from the end. All are alive for Me.
Jesus said to them, “The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage, but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; for they cannot even die anymore, because they are like angels, and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. But that the dead are raised, even Moses showed, in the passage about the burning bush, where he calls the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Now He is not the God of the dead but of the living; for all live to Him.” Luke 20:34-38.
The Lamb slain before the foundation of the world was slain in the world on a particular day that was today for all standing at the foot of the Cross and is still today for you who are redeemed by what took place on the Cross. And in My eyes, when Jesus was crucified you all were there in Him who would be saved and come to know the truth. When He died you died and when I raised Him, I raised you to newness of life.
Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. Romans 6:4.
And when you take Communion as you partake of the body and blood of My Son you proclaim His death until He comes. You are there, at the Cross, walking that journey in the spirit. And your body and His body have joined in Spirit and truth. And that is the place of worship.
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 2:5-7.
I knew you before you ever came to be. Before you knew Me, I knew you. I always knew you and I will always know you, and I will always and forever love you.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.” Jeremiah 1:5.
Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You. Psalm 139:16-18.
You are Mine. In life and in death you are Mine. You have nothing to fear. I am here for you, and I will never leave you or forsake you. I know your whole life and eternity already even though in time it is only unfolding now. This does not mean you are locked into what I know, it means I know your choices already even though you do not for I see and know all as one continuous live stream. Your times are in My hands but what you do with them are also in yours.
But as for me, I trust in You, O LORD, I say, “You are my God.” My times are in Your hand; deliver me from the hand of my enemies and from those who persecute me. Make Your face to shine upon Your servant; save me in Your lovingkindness. Psalm 31:14-16.
Make the most of your time. Do not waste it, redeem it. It counts for all eternity.
Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of (redeeming) your time, because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to yourself and one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father. Ephesians 5:15-10.
Do not waste your time on idle, frivolous, and/or sinful pursuits that waste your life and sap your strength, so you never do the good works I have all prepared for you. Ask Me to help you order your days aright that you may gain wisdom of heart.
Ask Me to mold you as the potter does the clay to be the masterpiece I planned you to be and knew you could be.
But now, O LORD, You are our Father, we are the clay, and You our potter; and all of us are the work of Your hand. Isaiah 64:8.
Learn to follow and lean on Me and let Me make your life the beautiful one I intended it to be.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. Ephesians 2:10.
The repentant criminal on the cross next to Jesus only understood this about his life at the end when he had no time to go back and fix what sin had cost him, but I will tell you a truth you should know from Scripture, but few understand. Just as I gave Jonah a second chance when he called out to Me from the depths of the sea where he was about to end his time on earth with an unfulfilled plan for his life, I give you all another chance where, if you have given your life to Me by receiving Jesus as Lord, I can restore to you all the world, the flesh and the devil stole from your life plan. Nicodemus could only understand it if he could somehow get back in his mother’s womb and start the birthing process of his life over again, but that is not possible, in the continuum of life you are traveling forward, always advancing.
So of what am I speaking? The thousand-year reign of Jesus from David’s throne in Jerusalem after the catching up of the church and the tribulation but before the final judgment and the creation of the new heavens and the new earth. Revelation 20:1-6. It is the time of the living out of unfulfilled lives who are in the Lamb’s book of life. Those who died in their own sins without faith in Jesus will not have this opportunity. Revelation 20:5.
But the dead who did not rise at the first resurrection will be present after this at the great white throne judgment of those whose names are not found in the book of life. Revelation 20:11-15. And those sinners who have not received Jesus as Lord and believed in His Name, will be thrown into the lake of fire along with death and Hades. The second death. Watch and pray. Redeem the time. You do not want to put yourself in that place by going the way of the devil, instead submit to My Words, resist him, and he will flee from you. It is that easy. Remember the repentant criminal on the cross next to Jesus. He redeemed the time.
The criminal on the cross next to Jesus would have gone to hell but he repented and acknowledged his sin, and called upon the Name of Jesus and professed his faith in Jesus as King, Messiah and Lord who would rise to come into His Kingdom, and that he would rise as well. Thus on the day of his physical death, the repentant criminal was in Paradise, Abraham’s bosom, waiting for the resurrection of Jesus for the gates of Heaven to open, just as Jesus promised him, “Today, you shall be with Me in paradise.” He did not go to hell as he had deserved from his life of rebellion and sin, but he was saved because Jesus took his sins and went to hell in his place. His sins had been transferred to Jesus and the repentant criminal was saved that day. In death he died with Jesus, so he was with Him forever as well. He was with Him and never would be with the devil. And in His reply to the repentant criminal besides assuring him of salvation to be with Me forever, Jesus was giving all those standing around the Cross a warning that most did not heed and resulted in the destruction of Jerusalem in forty years from when He died that day on the Cross, for Jesus is your rest, your promised land, your Shabbat.
If today you hear My voice, harden not your heart. Return while it is still today.
When you have a question and have let yourself worry about it, until you are focusing on that one issue so that it is blocking your fellowship with Me, let the worry and confusion go and just know that I know the answer and I will let you know what you need to know as well, but there are many things that are yet to be revealed that are not easily understood but are mysteries hidden in Me for revelation at a later time when you are ready. Even My servant Paul, who received great revelation from Me as he had enlarged his capacity to receive by being so thankful for all the revelations I gave him, said that you only know partially all that I am about but one day when you are with Me in the Kingdom seeing Me face-to-face, you will know even as you are known. In your glorified body you will be in a far elevated state above where you are now.
You are still contending with the flesh. For the flesh is hostile to the spirit and that happened due to the sin of Adam and your own sins as well. If you set your mind only on the flesh and live according to the flesh (that is, just the temporal things you can see with your five physical senses), you cannot please Me. Why? Because you can only connect with Me and please Me by living by faith, which is walking in the Spirit and not in the flesh. I am speaking where you have set your mind.
You can set your mind above where Christ is seated at My right hand by renewing your mind with My Word so you think like I do. Higher thoughts that pertain to things of the Spirit, thoughts that produce the fruit of the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-23. Not the works of the flesh.
And I knew you before you even came to be. I know you like no other can or will ever know you. And that is a very good thing. It is My love for you that makes Me so mindful of you.
Any day you choose Me is your today. Today you have the opportunity to come up and sit with Me. Where the blessings of the Heavenly realm are abounding for you more and more. In blessing I will bless you, in increasing I will increase you.
With Me in this age of the Church it is always TODAY. A new day. A day of new beginnings to live the life you were born to live. For the sake of your eternity take hold of life now.
I call heaven and earth to witness against you TODAY, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days. Deuteronomy 30:19-20.
I love you. Let Me work out and walk out your life with you. I want to give you your full reward. I want to fulfill all the desires of your heart. You must see that in what I have done for you in My Son to put you right with Me. Forever. Now is the acceptable time, now is the day of Salvation. Call while I am near. There will come a day when there is nothing left but judgment. Do not wait for that day, take hold of today while it is still TODAY.
