Is There Room For Me?

My birth was not a ‘season’ but the beginning of the end–which is the beginning.

“And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there will be no end.”” Luke 1:30-33

All must die, for the body is not eternal; the spirit would live forever, were it not for sin. Sin brought death to the spirit, while the body lived on–for the spirit to live for eternity it must be born anew–made new.

“–Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3

Renew

I came as a child that you might ‘see’. I came as a babe that you might believe…

that you could be made new–totally freed, from a life of sin and death. A life without Me–yearns to be free.

Invite Me to your home this night. Ask Me in–I’ll bring the light. And then you’ll ‘see’ that all you need, is the gift that was given–the One True Light.

“In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:4

That Light is Me.

“The true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world new him not.” John 1:9

“And she gave birth to her first-born son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.” Luke 2:7

There was no room at the Inn, will you ask Me in?

“But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God; who were born, not of blood nor of the will of flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father.” John 1:12-14

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23

 

A Perfect Life

There is a misconception about perfection. Most see this as a state to obtain–as if they alone have the power to become perfect. Be ye perfect, as I AM perfect; Be ye as I AM. I did nothing apart from the Father; I listened and said what I heard the Father speak; I did what the Father said do. I laid My life down that I may be glorified by My Father.

“Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing; for whatever he does, that the Son does likewise.'” John 5:19

“Jesus answered, “If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing; it is my Father who glorifies me, of whom you say that he is your God.”” John 8:54

“I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep.” John 10:14-15

Understand there is no perfection outside of My Blood.

For all have sinned and fallen short; all have need of a Savior. Perfection began as a child; grew in knowledge and understanding; became obedient–even unto death, that life might come for all mankind.

“–since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God; they are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as an expiation by his blood, to be received by faith.” Romans 3:23-25a

The Perfect Life

You have the ability to achieve this by beginning at the end. By laying down your life, you begin anew–as if I was you.

“Truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If any one serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there shall my servant be also; if any one serves me, the Father will honor him.” John 12:24-26

Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me,

for I AM gentle and lowly; learn and you will grow. Learn that you may know, that the perfect life is the perfect sacrifice already made for thee.

“Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-29

Begin at the end that you may begin again…

“Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”” John 3:3

Perfection obtained through Me.

“The glory which thou hast given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and thou in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that thou hast sent me and hast loved them even as thou hast loved me.” John 17:22-23

“None of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself. If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord; so then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.” Romans 14:7-9

“I appeal to you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:1-2

“You therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Matthew 5:48

 

 

The Perfect Gift

Your wholeness comes from above–it is within you if I AM within.

So many are running here, running there, gathering books, seeking specialists, and then…

when all else is done, and unrest remains–then they look to Me, often with blame; yet I was the one who loved them all along.

I AM the Healer.

I created you whole, when I birthed you from My death. Every baby is born through the pathway of blood. Every human being is Born Again through the shedding of blood–Mine.

Do you see?

I gave birth to you through My death. I took your death that you may live; that you might live in a fulness that you did not have before. A life that was not right, made perfectly complete by a perfect sacrifice.

Why then, am I a last resort when you seek what you need for your life?

What you need is inside, for there you have no need. But what you need is to open the gift, before you have need, and then you will find that you have no need.

I AM the perfect gift, given to you.

Open the gift and celebrate your Birthday. Happy Birthday…

Happy Birth Day!

“Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.”” John 3:3-6

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. He who believes in him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.” John 3:16-18

“Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same nature, that through death he might destroy him who has the power of death, that is the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong bondage.” Hebrews 2:14-15

“–but when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of deeds done by us in righteousness, but in virtue of his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal in the Holy Spirit, which he poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that we might be justified by his grace and become heirs in hope of eternal life.” Titus 3:4-7
