“Beloveds of My heart, I want to tabernacle with you. I want you to know My manifest presence always with you.
I gave you The Holy Spirit so that you would not feel alone, but I want you to be My Holy Habitation.
I want you to hear My Voice, more than you want to hear My Voice.
I want you to focus on Me, not just in the mornings before work, but throughout the day.
I want you to feel SECURE in My Love for you, that you would never doubt My Love for you.
Just like lovers think of each other throughout the day, wondering what is happening with the other, I want you to know, that I AM ALWAYS thinking of you. I never have my eyes off of you.
I know every little thing that happens, every thought you think.
Come away with ME, and let me hold you in My Arms of Love. Let me show you great and marvelous things you do not know.”
“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever — the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you,” John 14:16-18 NKJV.
“I AM not a God afar off, but I AM near at hand. I told you that if you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
So if you are abiding, your prayers will be answered, and you can rest assured that I hear every prayer you pray.
I always answer, but not always the way you want. If you pray in The Spirit according to My Will, then of course those words become LIFE, for you are praying MY WILL, and what I speak will become.”
“Am I a God near at hand,” says the LORD, “And not a God afar off ? Can anyone hide himself in secret places, So I shall not see him?” says the LORD; “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the LORD,” Jeremiah 23:23-24 NKJV.
“I want to be so ONE with you, that your thoughts conform to My thoughts, and your heart conforms to My heart, and your actions conform to My Will.
Union with ME is only possible if we have communion together. It only comes from your thoughts being taken captive, so that you no longer are distracted by the world and all the distractions of the enemy.
It is only in My presence that that can improve. It is time in My presence that can never be wasted. For I AM the SOURCE of all you need.
To become one, means you cannot serve ME, and mammon at the same time. You cannot serve your own fleshly self life, and Me.
You cannot serve money, and ME at the same time. So take every thought captive beloveds. Recognize what is glorifying Me, and what is glorifying self. To have that discernment means time in the WORD.”
The Truth Shall Make You Free
“Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free,”” John 8:31-32 NKJV.
“As you learn to abide through MY GRACE working in you, then you will bear much fruit. This is a great fruit bearing season you are in.
I AM pruning and correcting, testing and trying. I don’t want you left out, I do not take delight in cutting off unfruitful branches.
I do all I can in a way I know best fits each person and according to the call on their lives. Give mercy and you will have mercy. Give to others as you wish to receive.
Do not think to hoard up for yourselves alone in this hour, for I will judge those who show no mercy without mercy.
Remember that I can provide out of My storehouses anything that is needed. There is nothing I cannot do, though many are doubting and unbelieving that I would.
Without faith it is impossible to please ME, remember? So EXPECT good things from My hand, for I will do many supernatural things to provide for those who display faith in MY ABILITIES.
Always remember that I love you, and though I AM judging the world, and I AM pruning My Church, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS. I will never, never, never leave you alone.“
“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me,” John 15:4 NKJV.
“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you,” John 15:7-8 NKJV.
Love and Joy Perfected
“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love,” John 15:9-10 NKJV.
“Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the LORD. On the first day there shall be a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it. For seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire to the LORD. On the eighth day you shall have a holy convocation, and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the LORD. It is a sacred assembly, and you shall do no customary work on it,” Leviticus 23:34-36 NKJV.
The Nations Worship the King
“And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles . And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, on them there will be no rain. If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which the LORD strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles,” Zechariah 14:16-18 NKJV.
