My Love for You

Jesus:

Let Me tell you how much I love you.

Before this world was made I planned to die for you, to rescue you into My kingdom.

As I prayed in the garden of Gethsemane and sweated blood I held My love for you before My eyes.

As they beat me black and blue My love for you was safely held in My heart.

As I walked the road to Golgotha it was My love for you that kept My feet moving.

As they hammered in the nails it was My love for you which held Me there, stopped Me from just walking away.

And when I felt the weight and result of of your sin, separating me from Papa God, it was My love for you that gave Me the strength and courage to bear it.

And when I died it was My love for you that kept me going to give you a way home.

And when I rose from the dead it was My love for you that brought me to your side, rejoicing in the new life I had to offer you.

And when you accepted My gift, accepted My love, all of heaven rang with the joy that was in My heart.

My love for you had no beginning and it has no end.

You have My life as I have yours and we are One! One- you and I!

Dance with Me, rejoice with Me, for we are One and you are free to know My love and live with Me!

Becoming a Son of God

I looked and I saw a door standing open in heaven, and a … voice I had heard before spoke to me like a trumpet blast. The voice said, “Come up here,…” And instantly I was in the Spirit in heaven. The Spirit took me up and brought me into the inner courtyard, and the glory of the LORD filled the Temple.

I saw the Lord sitting on a lofty throne made from lapis lazuli, a deep blue marbled stone, and the train of his robe filled the Temple. The one sitting on the throne was as brilliant as gemstones— deep fiery reds, yellows, browns and greens like jasper and carnelian. And the glow of an emerald circled his throne like a rainbow.

From the throne came flashes of lightning and the rumble of thunder. In front of the throne was a shiny sea of glass, sparkling like crystal. A river with the water of life, clear as crystal, was flowing from the throne of God, passing to the right of the altar and flowing out beneath the door of the Temple.

Attending him were mighty seraphim, each having six wings. With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew. They were calling out to each other, “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of Heaven’s Armies! The whole earth is filled with his glory!” Their voices shook the Temple to its foundations, and the entire building was filled with smoke. Then I said, “It’s all over! I am doomed, for I am a sinful person. I have filthy lips, and I live among a people with filthy lips. Yet I have seen the King, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.””

Suddenly all heaven rang with a sound that penetrated through flesh and bone and stone, through the very fabric of existence and in that sound I heard the words: “it is finished!” 

Then the Lord Jesus Christ … entered into heaven itself to appear now before God on our, [on my]  behalf. 

Carrying a gold bowl filled with his own blood He entered this Most Holy Place once for all time to secure our redemption forever. For by the power of the eternal Spirit, Christ had offered himself to God as a perfect sacrifice for our sins..

Pouring His blood out on the alter, our High Priest offered himself to God as a single sacrifice for sins, good for all time.  Then he sat down in the place of honor at God’s right hand. And the Holy Spirit also testifies that this is so. For he says, “This is the new covenant I will make with my people on that day, says the LORD: I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds.” Then he says, “I will never again remember their sins and lawless deeds.” And when sins have been forgiven, there is no need to offer any more sacrifices. 

 So, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus. And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God’s house, let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him.

You see, God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.

An angel came and took me to the alter. She caught some of the blood dripping down in her hand and sprinkled it all over me.
For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ’s blood to make us clean,

Then she took my hand and lead me to the river coming from God’s throne and said, “Jump in and wash”, so I did.
Our bodies have been washed with pure water. 

I looked down at myself and I was changed, made new, made whole.
For by that one offering he forever made perfect those who are being made holy. 

Filled with love and compassion, our Heavenly Father ran to me, embraced me, and kissed me and said, “Quick! Bring the finest robe in the house and put it on this new Son of mine. Get a ring for his [her] finger and sandals for his [her] feet. And kill the calf we have been fattening. We must celebrate with a feast, for this child of mine was dead and has now returned to life, was lost, but now is found.’ So the party began.

Right next to Jesus was another gold throne and Papa God took me to it to seat me there!
For God has seated us with Christ in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.

Papa God said to Us,
“Sit with me as enthroned ruler while I subdue your every enemy. They will bow low before you as I make them a footstool for your feet. I will establish your kingdom as you reign in Zion-glory. Rule in the midst of your enemies! Your people will be your love offerings. In the day of your mighty power you will be exalted, and in the brightness of your holy ones you will shine as an army arising from the womb of the dawn, anointed with the dew of your youth! I have taken a solemn oath and will never back away from it, saying, “You are a priest for eternity, my King of righteousness!”
You are my favored Son. And as your Father I have crowned you as my King Eternal. Today I became your Father. Ask me to give you the nations and I will do it, and they shall become your legacy. Your domain will stretch to the ends of the earth. And you will shepherd them with unlimited authority, crushing their rebellion as an iron rod smashes jars of clay!’ ”

Restoration

Before the foundations of this world were made

God chose you to become in Christ

His holy and blameless child

Living in His tender loving care

This is the new covenant I make with you today says the LORD: 

I will put my laws in your mind and I will write them on your heart

I will be your God, and you will be one of my people. 

And you will know me. 

I will forgive all your wickedness

I will never again remember your sins

So the Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is upon you

To comfort your broken heart

To proclaim freedom and release

Even in your mourning you will know that the time of the LORD’s favour has come

And with it the day of God’s anger against your enemies

He will give a crown of beauty for the ashes of your past

A joyous blessing instead of mourning

Festive praise instead of despair

Instead of shame and dishonour you will enjoy a double share of honour

And everlasting joy will be yours

For the LORD loves justice

He hates robbery and wrongdoing

He will faithfully reward you for your suffering 

Everyone will realise that you are a person the LORD has blessed

For God has dressed you with the clothing of salvation 

And draped you in His robe of righteousness

Your salvation will come like the dawn

And your wounds will quickly heal

Godliness will lead you forward

And the glory of the LORD will protect you from behind
