(Note from writer:
This message is for *ALL* who seek God. The term "You" applies to all of you!)
"My love for you is NOT based on performance. I love you despite ANY works. I am your FATHER.
I know this is very difficult for you to understand; but, in time, you will realize My fullness. Cling, cleave to Me.
Always remember who you are in Christ. You are a new creation. You are fearfully and WONDERFULLY made! You were bought with a price. You are a partaker of My nature. You are seated in Heavenly places. (Spiritually speaking.)
You are an heir of My promises. You are precious, valued, cherished, (and) loved deeply. You hear My heart. You weep My tears.
You are sensitive to My Spirit's leadings. You are CONNECTED to the greatest Source of eternity.
You are a SURVIVOR. You are faithful. You are a fighter. You are an ENCOURAGER. You are a defender of the weak. You are My daughter. (Or son.) You are greatly and especially loved.
You (dare to) believe (Me)...when others give in to societal pressure. You keep going when you are buffeted. (*buffeted = to be struck, hit, beaten down, attacked)
You CALL to Me daily and I hear you. You are a SEEKER of Me: of truth, and (of) My righteousness and My justice. You know your human limitations.
You feel earnest compassion for the poor and starving. (* earnest = heartfelt and true, sincere, real) You often give up your OWN needs for others. You deny yourself.
You TRY. You forgive the seemingly unforgivable. You (try to) get up when you fall. You are humbled by the remaining sin nature. You grieve when you sin.
You are tired of the religious busy bodies. You desire more than a man-made church picnic. You want ME! And I am pleased!
You want more than a few dry hymns and stale choruses. You thirst for the LIVING GOD! You defy the popular religious ways. You are ATTEMPTING to break free of deadness. You are struggling...and I see.
I see all who are not satisfied with status quo: who are tired and fed up with all (the) man-made programs.
You KNOW there is more to Me than that! You KNOW I am more than a boring sermon.
You KNOW, in your heart- your NEW heart of flesh- that I am ALIVE! You seek Me in My glory and are disappointed.
Listen! I am going to be arriving on the scene at some point and will shock you all.
I am not the god of the dead, but of the living...and it is a fearful thing to fall into My hands. My fear is a sobering experience. My "church" has not even begun to comprehend the "FEAR of the LORD".
Man may condemn you, but will THEY be condemned by ME?
They assume My moniker and My mantle, yet they are poor and sickly reflections of Me. They are deceived: blind men leading blind men into a ditch.
You have become weary in trying to please man and HIS religion.
When you are with Me - you are free - you are able to walk at liberty. You will feel the difference! You will know - in your spirit - that I AM that I AM!
(You feel unworthy: that is good...but don't feel TOO unworthy.)
Remember, live in My promises and with My privileges. You have yet to access the power and (the) authority you've been assigned.
See yourself now MANTLED, clothed, covered and blanketed with My provision.
I am blessing you and soon you will reap many rewards."
