As we were worshipping the Lord together in my assembly, I was praying and singing quietly in the Spirit. I knew that this word was an interpretation of those words.
There are many people who continue to find themselves in the same situations—situations that they despise and fear.
The reason you continue to fear these situations, and keep finding yourself in them, is because you are still doing the same things.
The main message from God in this word was this: you must not continue responding in the ways you have learned in the natural world, specifically from your parents and family.
Yahweh is saying that you must not continue in the mindsets you have gotten from your earthly parents, before they or you were saved. They are carnal ways, the ways of the world. They will not give you the peace you are seeking.
These hard situations you continue to face, which you despise, can become smooth. You must simply learn new ways to respond.
The HolySpirit is waiting to teach you. Make a conscious decision to stop reacting and doing as you have been taught by your family, don't perpetuate their traditions. They will only exacerbate the situation.
What you need is a spiritual understanding, a new way to do things. Only the HolySpirit can give them to you; you must listen to Him and not to your mind as it tells you what you have always done in the past in this situation.
Just look at the results of those ways. They never fix the problem and you continue to find yourself in the same situation with the same dread.
Once you respond with the wisdom of the Spirit, which you will receive through your private communion with Him, the dread will disappear. The situation will have no power over your joy and peace. You will act and speak and the Kingdom of God will be manifest.
These dreadful situations will turn into opportunities for the Lord Jesus to manifest His grace, to heal, and to save from the ravages of the world.
Just listen to Him now and choose to not fall back on the ways that your family has taught you, the ways of the world. Choose to seek Yahweh, His Spirit, and you will enter that peace you are seeking in these situations.
As you read this site, you will hopefully come to know Yahweh more fully.
But all of this continuing knowledge is useless unless and until you come into union with Him. I use the word union because it is truly a marriage. It is that deep connection we all seek, for which we most often look in other people. However, the truth is that our hearts will only be fulfilled when we enter that union in fullness with the One Who made us.
This is the grace of God, that He has not stayed distant for us only to worship as Creator. But He has come unto us, even become one of us—in His Son, ChristJesus—in order to share an intimate union with us. He desires such closeness that it truly will envelope our entire life, transforming us into something new and wonderful.
You may have already entered this union with Him and only seek to know Him better through reading here. But if you have not, as you do read, let this Gospel sink into your heart as you read it now.
God loves you, and has cast your sins into the sea. He has sent His only Son as the Savior of the world—that includes you.
That Son, JesusChrist, was born as a man through a virgin who had given her life to Yahweh; He lived without sin, reflected the glory of His Father, God, in all His words and deeds, and was persecuted even unto death because of it.
His death upon a cross was the powerful explosion that separated you from your life of death. It remains for you, now, to enter into that death with Him. As you die to the one you are now, a person separated from God from your many sins, you will be born anew, with a nature predisposed to live rightly. This gift is free to you, with nothing you can do to earn it. It is the mercy of God to offer it to you, as He loves you so much! All you must do is receive it by trusting Him to have delivered you. Simply place your life in His hands and embrace the freedom that came through that death on the cross.
The Gospel is that Jesus did not remain dead, but rose again on the third day after His crucifixion! Death could not hold Him, as He was without sin. And so death will not be able to hold you, as you identify with Him fully through your trust in Him. Let go of yourself and confess Him as Lord of your life. The power of His death and resurrection will work in you all that your Creator has destined for you. You will truly enter a new life and experience that intimate union you have been seeking all of your life.
So ponder these words as you read here of this great God—Yahweh—and all that He has revealed to His creation. Let His Spirit testify to your heart that these words are true, that God is Love, and that He sent His Son so that you might receive the life that is unbound by time and space. As you feel that witness in your heart, simply believe and receive what He is offering to you, even now, and begin your new life as a child of God.
Please write to me and let me know when you take this step, as I will be your brother in Christ—we will be one in Him!
