Our Number One Foundational belief in our salvation is understanding fully that it is impossible to keep in the flesh.
That is why Jesus came and took our place for our sin once and for all. It was impossible to be saved, sealed, and delivered in our power, but the perfect precious Lamb of God took our place. We cannot add anything to it or take anything away from it.
Jesus stands at the door of our heart and knocks, if any man hears that knock and opens the door He will come in.
Becoming right with God happens when we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Through Christ’s atoning work on that cross He, the perfect Lamb of God, paid the awful terrible price for the salvation of our eternal souls.
When we truly get the revelation of what he did in our place, we cannot help but be grateful, love and serve The LORD!
I am so grateful that he draws us closer. For who can’t help but believe when they are confronted with God’s perfect love that cast out all fear! Fear causes torment and our God does not torment. It is His lovingkindness leads us to repentance.
Being a servant to the people of God for decades, I have seen much. But this especially I have seen a lot. I have never seen a person who was a pressured, pushed, fearful, or tormented individual make a true love commitment to Christ.
Fear and torment cannot keep you. I have NEVER seen a person make a commitment who was fearful, tormented, pressured, and continue on with Christ.
Fear will not save you and fear will not keep you! God’s motive is always love, because when you come to know the lover of your souls you cannot help but repent and fall in love with Him!
When met with Perfect Love, you cannot help but repent and receive his love and His security deep within. Christ is not religious and He goes wherever the people are.
Always remember to remind yourself and others that we love Him, because He first loved us. And it is because His lovingkindness always leads us to repentance not fear and torment!
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me,” Revelations 3:30 KJV.
“Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. We love him, because he first loved us,” 1 John 4:15-19 KJV.
As for me, I have learned through the years how blessed and relieved I was when I learned to remain childlike in innocence.
It wasn’t always that way though! Those who know me well understand who I am but for the majority, remaining as a child has kept ignorant, innocence and close to Abba, and people have not seen what I pack inside.
It is better to remain incognito and quiet staying in the back until He calls you forward. Then everyone will know!
This is the key beloved; Let God make room for your gifts! You don’t need to say it, prove it or try to make it happen.
Let God open doors and let HIM say it! He wants to take us onward and upward in the Spirit realm and Let God make room for you.
I try to do my best keeping it simple. So, I fall on the grace and mercy of God. I am simple, and childlike and that is my rank. I seek no titles. He is my total life. And I want to bring glory to His HOLY Name!
I pray in season He always reveals.
I seriously asked God to keep me innocent and childlike to take what the Holy Spirit shows me, to minister encouragement in all ways.
To move in love and do all things motivated by love for The LORD, to all of us who are in a major struggle. It is my hope his word has moved you and given you confidence in Jesus name!
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
