NEW BEGINNINGS - GLORY OF THE FATHER

Dear Precious Child,
   My glory was reflected in My Son Jesus.  (John 1;14) My glory in Him was reflected in His love for all mankind.  No one was turned away or were refused His healing powers or His forgiveness or His authority to cast out demons or His counsel and no one was rejected from His classes in righteousness.  His love toward all people was a reflection of My love.  His joy was a reflection of My joy.  His desire for peace was a reflection of My love for peace.  His goodness and kindness toward all people were a reflection of My love for everyone.  His faithfulness to Me was a reflection of My faithfulness to everyone.  His patience with the people who came to Him for ministry was a reflection of My faith and patience because He knew that I desire that everyone comes to a knowledge of the truth.  (I Timothy 2-1-4)
   You are a reflection of My glory that was in Christ Jesus if you are born of My Spirit and baptized in My Spirit.  My Holy Spirit is the One who delivers My glory into the world.  It is His light of revelation which enters into a person and enlightens the person to the reality of My love.  My angels surround them and My glory fills their temple of the Holy Spirit, their bodies, just like My glory filled the ark of the covenant when I was dealing with Israel.
   Jesus even said that his own followers, his disciples, could not understand the fullness of His truth but that when My Holy Spirit came to live in them that He would reveal all truth to them, even taking what Jesus taught and bring light to it.  He said that My Spirit would bring light to His teachings from the inside of them, revealing truths and making them workable in the lives of My children. (John 16:12-15)
  My Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Life.  He is the  One who impregnated Mary with My divine sperm and created Jesus, the Son of God/Son of Man.  He is the One who enters into the spirit of a person and creates a new person entirely with new motivations, new thoughts, new power and new character, My character.  It is only with your permission that My Spirit can transform you with the renewing of your mind so that you can know My will in every matter and situation. (Romans 12:2)  My will contains everything that saves you from the evil works of the devil in the earth.   My will is that you have power over the temptations of the devil, rejecting the words that entice you to be trapped to do evil in the world that I created.  My will is never grievous but is always for your guidance into your behavior so that you can enjoy the benefits of My kingdom while living in the earth.
   My glory is always the working of My Holy Spirit along with My angels who accompany Him constantly.  (Ezekiel 1: 12-14)   There is never any works of My glory without the presence of My Holy Spirit.  When He lives in you and reveals My character to you, then you become changed from glory to glory by the power of My Holy Spirit.  (II Corinthians 3:18)
   Oh, what a happy day that is to Me, when My children come to Me for counsel by the person of My Holy Spirit who lives inside of them, and they hear His counsel, eager to receive His revelations of what Jesus taught.  When they do, they are ready to receive My truth into them, making them into a reflection of My glory.  (John 14:15-17)
   My glory which flows from you draws all people to Me.  My glory in you, as reflected in My joy, makes others want to partake of My glory and have the joy, peace and love that you have.  (I Peter 1:8).  I said that you become filled with unspeakable joy and full of glory.  When you are filled with My Spirit and joyful, you are full of My glory and it is reflected in your life by your becoming a light to the world.  Those of My children who have lost their first love for Me are no longer a reflection of My love to the lost people of the world.
   When My character of unconditional love becomes resident in you, having been grown and nurtured by My Holy Spirit, then you will draw all men to Me because you are reflecting My glory.
   Your Father of Glory

NEW BEGINNINGS - GLORIFICATION STANDARDS

Dear Precious Child,
  My desire is to have children who intimately know Me, and because of that close association with Me they have the fruit of My Spirit exemplified in their bodies as well as in their spirits because of their loving actions.  (I Corinthians 6:20)  I want children who do not exemplify the flesh in any way, having crucified the flesh and its evil actions toward people.  I want children who have ceased to judge others, ceased to condemn others, ceased to hate others, ceased to become angry with  others, ceased to take divisive sides in discussions over religious tenets or political beliefs.  There are two kinds of people, those who glorify the fruit of the flesh which invites the devil's curses into their lives, and those who glorify the fruit of My Spirit which invites the blessings of My kingdom into their lives.  There are no political divisions in My family in the earth.  There are only those who glorify the flesh and those who glorify My Spirit in their lives.   (Galatians 5:16-24)
  I want children who don't exclude people in their lives because of the color of skin or religious differences. I want children who take no extreme religious or political stands because they know that their citizenship is in My kingdom of heaven, not in any earthly nation.  I want children who feed the poor, heal the sick, do good toward and pray for their enemies.  I want children who refuse to return evil for evil done to them, who do not pray, fast and give money to be noticed by people, who are not hypocritical but who love others as I love them.  Jesus said that My children who do what He instructed them to do will be rewarded by Me. (Matthew 5: 21-48)
   I want children who know that their battle is never with other people but is always with the demons in the air around them who tempt people to do evil to them so that maybe My children will retreat into their flesh and do the devil's will instead of always doing My will in the earth of turning the other cheek.  I want children who are willing to pray in the Spirit which allows Me to win the battles with the demons that are causing problems in the lives of everyone. (Ephesians 6:10-18)  Love the people; battle the devil.  
   My children who intimately know Me have sought My kingdom and My righteousness, just like their brother Jesus taught them.  Because they have followed His teachings, they have been born of My Spirit and baptized in My Spirit so they have the spiritual power to refuse the devil's temptations to defame anyone, criticize anyone, oppose anyone, hurt or injure anyone.  My children who know Me intimately know that what they do to the least of My children, they do to Me.  They know that their love and kindness will reap great rewards.
   My children who glorify Me by blessing the people who persecute them for righteous actions of loving everyone as I love them and being peacemakers in every situation will be rewarded greatly.  (Matthew 5:11-12) 
  My children are rewarded who follow My teachings because they have sown seeds into My garden of love and love plants will flood into their lives.  My children who yield to the flesh sow into the devil's garden of destruction and reap his curses.  My efforts in My teachings through Jesus and in the revelations of My Holy Spirit are to entice you to always avoid participating with evil but instead to glorify Me in your body as well as in your spirit.  When you do, the riches of My kingdom are yours because you have magnified My personality in the earth.  As a result, people will glorify Me and want to come into My family with you.
    Your Loving, Glorifying Father 

NEW BEGINNINGS - GLORY STANDARDS

Dear Precious Child,
   My children waited for generations for My glory to be manifested in the earth, My glory being My divine presence.  It was manifested in the person of My Son Jesus when He was born into the earth as My image in nature of the reality of My character and personality.  The assurance was confirmed that He was My glory in the earth when the angels came to worship Him and glorify Him.  There was no doubt in the eyes of the observers that He was My Son because My glory surrounded Him.  There was an essence of goodness and love in Him and around Him that drew all people to Him all of His life.  Yet, He said that when He sent My Holy Spirit into the earth that My Spirit would do greater works than He had done.  Jesus Christ glorified the Holy Spirit and His works in the earth, but many of My children do not glorify My Holy Spirit like they glorify Me and My Son Jesus. 
   We are One God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 
   It was My Spirit who hovered over the earth and worked along with Me to create everything in it.  (Genesis 1:1)
   It was My Spirit through whom I visited My children when My angels appeared to them because My Spirit is the Leader of the angels, their Head, their General, their giver of My instructions.  (Ezekiel 1:12 and 20; Ezekiel 3:1-5) 
   It was My Spirit who impregnated Mary with My divine sperm, creating My Son who died for the sins of the world.  (Luke 1: 30-35) 
   It was My Spirit who is My promise to My children throughout the ages as the ways and means through whom I save the world and My individual children from the works of the devil. 
   It was My Spirit in Jesus Christ who gave Him power over the works of the devil both in the earth and in hell when He went to hell for the sins of the world. (I John 3:8) 
   It was My Holy Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead and catapulted Him back into the earth to be seen by hundreds of people.(Mark 14:16-19) 
   It was My Spirit in Jesus Christ who told His followers to wait for My promise to My children which was that I would live in them in the person of My Spirit, that I would be their Father and their own power over the evil in the world.(Luke 24:49; Acts 1:1-8) 
   It was My Spirit who then catapulted Jesus into heaven to sit down with Me while My Holy Spirit continued My work in the lives of My children and in the earth, just as Jesus taught His followers. (John 14, 15 and 16)
   It is My Spirit who filled the room with My glory on the day of Pentecost when My promise to all of My children was fulfilled, when My Spirit came to make human bodies My dwelling places in the earth.  The people began to pray and speak My own spiritual words because My Spirit came to live in them.  My words became the avenue through which the people and the earth would be saved from evil, as it has always been.  I created the earth with My words and it is My words through My Holy Spirit in the earth today as spoken to and by My children which continue the ministry of Jesus in the earth of covering the earth with My knowledge. (Isaiah 11:9)
  It is My Spirit's presence in the life of a person who creates a new individual in that body when the person is born of My Spirit.  It is My Spirit who causes old things to pass away and all things to become new. (Romans 8:11; Ephesians 2:1)
  When you are born of My Spirit and baptized in My Spirit, you have My greatest treasure in your body. (II Corinthians 4:7)  You have My words of the Holy Spirit inside of you to teach you and you have My words of the Holy Spirit's prayer language which can change your entire life by His power. 
  I told you not to neglect such a great salvation, yet many of My children let the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches entice them away from My Holy Spirit's treasure in them.   He is the One who has the power to rid you of the cares of the world by sending My solutions to those problems which engage you in cares and worries.  He has the power to give to you the riches of My kingdom which are unconditional love and soul peace.  They are more valuable to My children than earthly riches.  They do what earthly riches cannot do. (Hebrews 2:3)
  Again I say to you, do not neglect to be led by My Spirit and pray in My Spirit.  In being led by My Spirit and praying in My Spirit, all things will work together for your good to those who are in Christ Jesus and who let My Spirit recreate their world.
(Romans 8)
  Don't sit around waiting for My glory to be manifested.  You have the glory of My Holy Spirit inside of you. Build up your faith by praying in the Holy Spirit.(Jude 20)

NEW BEGINNINGS - FULL OF GLORY STANDARD

Dear Precious Child,
   When I speak of My glory, I refer to the manifestation of My nature and character in the earth, either in the lives of My children or in physical evidence of My actions in the earth.  In one of My promises I said that, though not having seen Me with fleshly eyes, that you can love Me and know Me intimately.  That intimacy results in your having unspeakable joy which fills you with My glory. (I Peter 1:8) 
   What a pleasure it is for you to be filled with My glory and have joy that goes beyond human description.  Only by our relationship of close unity will I be able to transfer My glory to you, making you a light on a hill, of which Jesus spoke.
(Matthew 5:14-16) Peter had observed My glory in the person of My Son Jesus and He knew My glory first hand.
   The evidence of My nature was perfected in Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit.  There was an essence of Divine Love that flowed from Him.   He was moved by compassion and healed all who came to Him who were sick.  He was moved with mercy for those who were demon possessed, knowing that they were driven by demons and needed forgiveness and deliverance.  He was moved with concern for My children because of their ignorance of spiritual things so He taught them about the difference between good and evil at every opportunity.  He was so moved with My love for humanity that He gave hope and encouragement to the masses, coaching them that they must be born of My Spirit before they could do the works that He did.  He was so moved with My desire for peace in the earth that He taught His followers about loving their enemies instead of returning evil for evil, taught about asking forgiveness for any wrong they did to anyone.   My goodness, My mercy, My compassion, My concern for people, My love and My forgiveness all were evidence of My nature, My glory which was inside of Jesus which flowed outward to people.  My glory flowed from Him because of My nature being magnified inside of Him.
   My Holy Spirit told you through Peter that you, even though your human eyes never see Me, that you can know me intimately, that you can be so personally acquainted with Me and My Divine Nature that you observe My nature and character spiritually and you become filled with My glory which will flow from you, doing My works of love in the world which bring praises, honor and glory to Me. (Matthew 5:17) 
   It is easy for Me to manifest My glory in the earth through nature.  My angels and I can enter the earth and change the elements of the earth, manifesting My brilliance as in the burning bush, when Moses and Elijah visited with Jesus and also on the day of Pentecost.  That is no problem for Me.  Manifesting My glory in My children is more of a labor for Me because I gave free will to My children.  Every change in them requires their choosing to allow Me to build My kingdom inside of them until their bodies become My temples in the earth where My Holy Spirit can reside and become Lord in the earth.  (I Corinthians 3:16-17; II Corinthians 3:16-18)  I cannot swoop in and do it without their permission, their choice.  I said that, if you are willing, that you can be changed from glory to glory into My likeness until you are a bright light in the world, displaying My nature and character in a world that is filled with evil.
    Your being filled with joy and being filled with My glory go hand in hand just like faith and patience go hand in hand.  My glory inside of you, as produced by the presence of My Holy Spirit with your permission as you seek Me, will cause My joy to overflow from your body into the world.  You will rejoice in hard times and good times.  You will rejoice in tribulation as well as revelation because you know that I will cause your enemies to be at peace with you.  You will rejoice when persecuted for doing righteous things in the earth because you know that the seeds of goodness that you sow will return to you with good actions from others. 
    Seek Me, seek My kingdom and seek My righteousness and you will be filled with joy, the light on the hill that I desire you to be, bringing glory to Me.
    You are My reflection in the earth.  
    Your Father of Divine Love     

NEW BEGINNINGS - EXCEEDINGLY JOYFUL STANDARDS

Dear Precious Child,
   I know your desire to know Me intimately and to enjoy My family benefits which I promised.  I know that you don't see Me, yet you know Me because of the revelations of My Holy Spirit.  (I Peter 1:6-8) Your joy at knowing me is  "unspeakable" because the height of its elevation is beyond description.  There are no human words in any language which adequately describes My joy which is present in you in the person of My Spirit.  It is the power in My joy that becomes your strength in troubling times when the devil brings his temptations and his evil works into your life to rob you of My joy.  When he can rob you of My joy, he robs you of your power. (Nehemiah 8:10)   So do you see his reason for robbing you of My joy?  It's because you become powerless and vulnerable to his works, allowing the demons to do what he means for them to do, rob you, kill you and destroy you.  (John 10:10)   When he robs you of your joy, he robs you of your power because My joy in you is your strength and your power.
   In the parable of the wise virgins and the foolish virgins Jesus said He was teaching about My kingdom of heaven and the power that is resident in it.  (Matthew 25:1-13) The wise virgins kept their fires going and when the bridegroom came they were prepared for their union with Him.  The foolish virgins were negligent in keeping their fires going, tried to borrow from the wise ones, were refused and went in search of more oil.  While they were gone, the bridegroom came and the doors were shut to the foolish ones who neglected to keep the fire of My Holy Spirit blazing inside of themselves so that they would remain joyful and obedient.  They did not enter into the joy of the Master because he did not know them.  He said He was not intimately acquainted with them. 
   Jesus amplified this truth by teaching about the man who went on a long journey and entrusted his property to his servants just like I entrusted the earth to My children.  (Matthew 25:14-31) The man gave coins to each servant in relation to the servant's abilities.  The servant with the most coins wisely invested it and doubled his investment. The servant who had two coins gained two more coins.  The person with one coin buried it in the ground.  When the master returned, he rewarded the servants who increased their money with great rewards and told them to enter into the joy of their master.  Jesus was saying that My children who have wisdom seek more and more of the wisdom of My kingdom and their joy is increased, meaning that their power and strength is increased.  My children who become born again and stay ignorant of My kingdom because of fear miss out on the revelations of becoming intimately acquainted with Me, even being blind to My works in their behalf.  They never enter into My joy.  Because there is no strength, when spiritual winds blow and floods come they are destroyed instead of saved by My power.
   Jesus said that My children who do what I tell them to do, feed the poor, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, minister to the sick and welcome strangers into their homes are My wise children because what they do to the least of My children they do to Me.  They are My children who enter into My joy.  The people who call themselves by My name but who neglect the needy are the ones who do not inherit My kingdom living while in the earth and they have no joy, so they have no strength when spiritual winds blow and floods come and they are destroyed instead of being saved by My power. (Matthew 25:34-45)  They are still waiting for Me to return to earth, not realizing that I came back into the earth in the person of My Holy Spirit.  Their joy can be complete and "unspeakable" if they will ask to be baptized in My Holy Spirit.   My joy and strength inside of them will abound to unfathomable heights.
   Everything I have is yours.  My joy is yours.  My strength in you is in My joy inside of you.  Don't allow the enemy, the devil, to rob you of your joy.  Hell's mission is to take My joy from you.  When you feel your joy waning, ask Me to restore to you the joy of My salvation.  Joy comes when you seek Me, My kingdom and My righteousness.  I meet you halfway, your seeking Me and My finding you.   I love to fulfill that prayer because I desire to have joyful children who bring glory to Me.
  I said when you have joy unspeakable you are full of My glory. 
   Your Loving, Joyful Father

NEW BEGINNINGS - THE STANDARD OF JOY

Dear Precious Child,
   I said something profound that My children miss because of the veil that is over their minds, put there by the evil one.  Through the prophet David I said that My joy is your strength.  I did not say that mere earthly joy is strength. Some of the laughter that comes from the flesh of people is not strength for My children because it is at the expense of someone.  I said that My joy in you is strength.
   We have talked about My standard of My love being powerful against evil, soothing the ruffled feathers of your human enemies because love always overcomes evil.  It takes a long time for My children to believe that standard of behavior, that My love will always overcome evil actions from other people.  When they do, they are empowered by that revelation and are able to always overcome evil with good actions of love from their behavior.  Once they experience the power of love, they will continue in obeying My admonition and come against the evil done to them with love for the evil doer instead of returning to their old behavior of returning evil for evil.
   Now you need to know how My joy is power.  Yes, I said it is power.   Strength is power.  You only need power over your real enemy, the devil.  You don't need power over your human enemies who hurt you, persecute you or revile you.  I said to love them.  The power that you need is over your real enemies, the devil and his demons in the air around you.  (Ephesians 6:10-13)  One way to defeat the demonic enemies is with joy because it is strength.
   You ask how can joy defeat the enemy?  It's very, very easy.  The reason that the devil and his demons bring evil against you is to make you take the position of being under them, under their domination by your becoming only self conscious, conscious of what the evil is doing to your ego and your human emotions. having a "poor me" attitude, a "why me attitude", spiraling downward into depression because something bad is happening to you.  You retreat into yourself with self protection, cutting yourself off from others, persecuting the human that the devil is using against you, and nursing your emotional wounds like a cat or dog licking its wounds.  All the time the devil and his demons are having a laughter party at your expense because they have accomplished their task of robbing you of your faith, your joy and your love.  The longer you stay in the prison of depression, the more laughter is heard in hell at your expense.  You and I become laughing stocks in hell.  I am a laughing stock because you are My child and you have willingly succumbed to the actions of the devil in becoming emotionally hurt, upset and depressed.  I get no glory from that scenario.  I get ridicule from hell. 
    HOWEVER, when My joy is strong in you, instead of your becoming angry, upset, displaying "poor me" or "why me" attitudes until you are completely depressed, as My child when the winds blow and the floods of life come when the devil brings people against you or evil things against you -- which they will as long as you live in the earth -- when you can laugh with joy at the circumstances that were meant to depress you, laughing at the devil's multiple efforts to defeat you at the same time and his hoping to overload you with bad circumstances, you will defeat the devil and his works which flooded into your life with My joy.  When you are physically tired and bad circumstances come against you, when you allow My joy to overtake your mind, you will laugh at the devil instead of retreating into his hell of self consciousness which allows the devil to laugh at the pitiful situation which he caused.  Very often, when he brings multiple bad situations into your life at the same time, the hilarity of the situation is so evident that the evil works are his doing, and so you laugh because you know that the battle is already won for your side and My side because you did not allow the devil to accomplish his efforts to depress you and get you into the prison of your own mind. 
  My joy in you during trying situations will keep you as the head instead of the tail in bad times.  My joy will make you an overcomer instead of your being overcome with evil.  My joy will catapult you out of your self consciousness into being only conscious of My forces of good which are working in your behalf to solve the problems that the devil brought against you.  Only with faith in Me and in the power of My Holy Spirit's ability to effectively and efficiently solve the problems can you react with joy.  Only with your laughing with joy during trying times at the devil's efforts to defeat you can you immediately allow Me to overcome the evil that was done to you, 
   Joy is strength.  Joy is power.  Joy is an outgrowth of the presence of My Holy Spirit living inside of you. (John 16:22)
   Your enemy, the devil, always overplays his hand.  Bringing multiple problems into your life at the same time is his mode of operation.  When you are physically tired is when he floods your life with problems.  But, when you raise the standard of joy, laughing at his efforts to defeat you, then you have already won the battle. In the atmosphere of joy and faith, I and My angels are able to solve the problems quickly because you remained loyal to Me as your Father, not succumbing to the devil's attitudes of depression and sadness which says that you have made him your father at the time instead of Me.
    Laugh at evil circumstances and declare that you will not be defeated because I am your Loving Father who will never allow you to be defeated.  Repeat that confession and laugh with joy until I am able to provide the solution.  (John 17:13)
    Joy is positive power which elevates you to new spiritual heights.  (Acts 13: 52)  Sadness and depression are also powers of the devil which place you under his feet where he treads on you instead of you treading on him, as I meant for you to do.
    My joy is the Olympic flame of power that burns in you, keeping you as a winner in life, an overcomer who cannot be defeated. (John 15:11
    Laugh for joy in the face of the devil when he brings things into your life to rob, kill and destroy you.  My joy in you will overcome all of the forces of evil because your house is built on My rock of stability. (Matthew 7:24-27)  Remain joyful until I have all of your problems solved.
    I said My joy is your strength.  Strength is power.  My joy is power.
    Your Joyful Father Who Rejoices When My Children Display My Joy

NEW BEGINNINGS - STANDARD FOR FRUIT INSPECTION

Dear Precious Child,
   In My instructions to you relating to the narrow gate that leads to life and the wide gate that leads to destruction, I told you that few find the narrow gate.  I don't make it hard to find.  It's the devil who deceives you by making it hard to find. (Matthew 7:15-18)
   One way I told you how to find the narrow gate is for you to watch out for false prophets.  They are the people who speak for Me and they come in sheep's clothing but inside they are ravenous wolves working for their own edification.  They endeavor to lead you onto the wide path to destruction.  I said that you must inspect their fruit because grapes cannot be gathered from thorny bushes or figs from thistles.  The more you hear their thorny words and see their spindly thistle, the more acceptable their words become and you ignore the poison of their fruit.  I said that a sound tree yields good fruit and a bad tree yields evil fruit, meaning that the people who are truly of My family are the people whose lives are filled with love, peace and joy.  The people who are hypocrites in their beliefs are filled with hatred, bigotry, anger and strife.  (Matthew 7:16-19)
   Many of My children, because of religious and political emotionalism, have become poor inspectors of the fruit emulating from their leaders.  They listen to the leaders' instructions to return evil for evil to unbelievers and others of My children whom they think are infidels, teaching you to consider them as your enemies rather than doing what I said through Jesus, which is to love and bless everyone, even those people of different political and religious beliefs whom hypocrites consider their enemies.  The false prophets poison you with their evil rhetoric and behaviors.  Many of My children copy their hypocrisy. (Matthew 7:21-23) Unfortunately, they will be the ones whom I said to depart from Me, I never knew you, because their attitudes, speaking and actions are opposite from My family traits.  They don't act like My children.  Their attitudes, speaking and actions reflect the beliefs and behaviors of the false prophets and they qualify themselves for the devil's cruel rewards from hell because they are bound to the evil rhetoric from their leaders. 
   My children who are good fruit inspectors, always checking for love, joy, peace, goodness, kindness and mercy, often only discover strife, hatred, anger and bigotry in their leaders.  They refuse to bind themselves to the hypocrites because of the knowledge that comes from discerning the nature of their fruit, whether it is kind, good, loving and peaceful or whether it is the same as the hypocrites who speak one thing and then do another.
   I said that those people who hear My words and do them are very wise, building their lives on My attitudes and actions, the standards as instructed by Me through Jesus.  They are the people who inherit My kingdom while they live in the earth because they are recognized as being My children.  (Matthew 7:24-27)
   Become good fruit inspectors and reject the things taught by wolves in sheep's clothing.  The wolves do not speak truth.  They are lies and they are efforts to keep you out of My family and keep you from inheriting the gifts of My gracious kingdom.
   My Holy Spirit gives to you the spirit of discernment so that you will be able to discern good from evil, discerning blessings from curses.  Listen to Him and you will be able to recognize false prophets immediately because of their evil fruit.  Do not take into your mind their evil destructive ways. 
   Pray for the false prophets that they will be filled with My Holy Spirit and be able to become My real prophets, speaking truth instead of lies and sowing goodness instead of hatred.
   Remember that when you do what is pleasing to Me, I make even your enemies to be at peace with you because you have sown peace in their lives.
    Your Gift Giving, Peaceful Father

STANDARD OF CONFIDENCE

Dear Precious Child,
   In whom is your complete confidence?  Is it in your government?  Is it in your pastor?  Is it in your mate?  Is it in your political party?  Is it in your club?  Is it in your church?  Is it in your business?  Is it in your corporation?  Is it in your bank?  Is it in your insurance company?  All of those are either human beings or they are made up of human beings, so they are unstable, subject to destruction, subject to fall for the temptations of the devil, just as you do.  They are the houses that are built on sand, just like Jesus spoke. (Matthew 7:26-28) He said that winds will blow and beat upon the house, torrential rains and floods will come and the house will fall, and great will be the fall because the man was foolish who did not believe My warnings and follow them.   
   My kingdom is built upon the Rock of My love and upon My power.  (Matthew 7:24-25)  When problems come, which the devil brings upon every person, the person who has confidence in Me will never be defeated or destroyed because the person has placed his or her confidence in Me, not in humans who have frailties.  The wise person who has confidence in only Me receives rewards from Me which will never diminish because he or she has not only heard My warnings but has done what I instructed.  My instructions and warnings are steadfast, reliable, unmovable, trustworthy and eternal.  I am Love and My love for the world that I created and the children that I created to tend it will never diminish.  I will never fail you, will never leave you, will never punish you, will never rob from you or steal from you or kill you because I am your Loving Father who created you. 
   The confidence that you have in Me will always be rewarded with blessings from My family of love.  My children are the most prized possessions of which I am most proud and I delight in giving gifts to My children in order for their joy to be complete, 
   The rock of revelation knowledge of the truth that you can become intimately acquainted with Me, knowing My character and personality, will establish you in My loving ways so that your confidence will be based upon wisdom and knowledge.  You cannot have confidence in someone you do not know intimately.  That is why one of My children wrote that his main goal in life was to become so intimately acquainted with Me, that he would personally know My power that is available to those who believe in Me, and that he would completely know the height, depth, width and breadth of My love. (Ephesians 3:14-20; Ephesians 1:15-33) He even said that when your reach that goal of intimately knowing Me, My power and My love, that I will be able to do supe rabundantly more than you dare think or imagine, according to My power that is in you.   If the power in you is My Holy Spirit, then I am able to do more than you think is possible. 
   You can't have complete confidence in someone you don't intimately know. When you do place your confidence in mere humans or the institutions that they form, then you will find yourself in a house built on sand which collapses.  They will collapse because the devil sets them up and then tears them down in order to fulfill his curses on them.  
    Your confidence in Me is rewarded by My answering your prayers. (I John 5:14-15.) Your confidence in Me allows you to follow all of My teachings, My admonitions, My instructions and My standards.  Your following of them is what proves the depth of your love for Me.  I said multiple times that if you love Me, you will do what I command.  All of My commands are for your benefit because they guide you away from the wide path that leads to destruction and they lead you to the narrow gate that leads to a life of abundant blessings, peace and joy  (Matthew 7:13-14)

NEW BEGINNINGS - CHOOSING STANDARDS

Dear Precious Child,
   Every family, culture, race, nation, kingdom and religion has its own peculiar standards which are behaviors and actions which are particular to their heritage. 
   In the earth that I created, I gave My attitudes to the first man and woman which became their standards because the humans were made in My image.  They exhibited My behavioral standards of love, peace, goodness, kindness, mercy, faithfulness, joy and patience in the earth that I gave to them until they were deceived into letting the devil enter into their earth and curse everything in it. (Genesis 3:1-3) Because of the devil's curses upon them and in them, many of their attitudes and standards changed from good actions to evil actions because of the temptations of the devil, who is the father of all evil.  (Genesis 3:13-19)
   Some of the first demonic attitudes and behaviors that they displayed in the earth were guilt, condemnation and shame, as evidenced by the devil's judgment of them and their actions of hiding from Me because of their realization that they were naked.  The devil introduced his standards of shame and guilt into their thoughts because they had disobeyed Me by listening to and obeying him.  From that day forth, the devil was free to tempt My children and then make them feel guilty for doing his will. (Genesis 3:4-7)  That is his deception, tempting you to sin and then condemning you for sinning.  That's what the devil does and My children fall for it because he has put a veil over their minds so that they are ignorant of his ways.
   After the first temptation and Adam and Eve choosing to listen to the devil, My children ceased making the choice to be My image in the world by having My behaviors and actions of goodness which they were created to display in their world, and they began to display the devil's standards of anger, jealousy, hatred, deceitfulness, discord and murder, as evidenced later by their son Cain's attitudes toward his brother Abel which resulted in his killing of his own brother.  Demonic thoughts, attitudes and activities began to flood into the earth and rule My own children instead of their being led by My loving thoughts, attitudes and actions, which were their original standards of behavior.  They knew not only My goodness from their original heritage of being created by Me in My image, but they also knew evil motivations because of allowing the devil to enter into their domain that I gave to them.  Until the coming of Jesus Christ and My Holy Spirit into the world, the history of My children relates to their struggles between good and evil, between My standards and the devil's standards.
   I was often able to temporarily rescue them from the pits of destruction which the devil caused in their lives when the descendants of the first two people obeyed evil thoughts.  I even made a covenant with a righteous man, Abraham, through whom the flesh of My Savior Son Jesus was able to enter into the earth.   Abraham's good attitudes and standards of behavior caused Me to choose him so that it would be his fleshly descendants through whom salvation would come to earth.  My plan was that their savior would be a man, but that that man would be created inside of a woman by My Holy Spirit so He would also be God in the flesh.  My plan was accomplished, not in a day but many generations later through My covenant with Abraham.
    That God/man Jesus Christ was able to do what the first man, Adam, was unable to do.   He resisted the devil's temptations to obey him and he didn't allow the devil to curse Him and curse the earth even further to destruction.(Matthew 1-11)  Jesus Christ went on to destroy the works of the devil in the earth even after His crucifixion and resurrection from the dead.  (I John 3:8)  His ministry in the earth was over and My final covenant began with My children.  We sent My Holy Spirit into the earth to be received by those children of Mine who believe in Me, the same Spirit who created Jesus in the earth in a human woman, the same Spirit who ministered salvation from the works of the devil when He ministered in the earth by overcoming the works of the devil, and the same Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead. 
   We sent My Own Holy Spirit into My children to restore to them My guidance, the same guidance that was available to Adam in the beginning but which he allowed to be polluted by the devil.  My Holy Spirit gives to My children all of the good attitudes, attributes and standards that I gave to the first man before he was polluted by the devil.
   The salvation of people comes from the power of My Holy Spirit because He gives to My children My own supernatural power which overcomes the devil and his works, destroying his plans, his orchestrations of death and destruction and his authority in the earth which Adam so willingly gave to him.  My Holy Spirit becomes the Lord in the earth, living inside of My children.  (I Corinthians 3:16; II Corinthians 3:17-18)  My Spirit gives power to My children, loving authority over every living thing again by My guidance and also power over the devil and all of his destructive works in the earth which cause My children to rob, kill and destroy each other.  Instead of the devil continuing to be lord over My children, I, through My Holy Spirit, again become Lord, their guide, their wisdom, their power, their love, their faith, the same Loving Father that I was at the beginning.  My standards become their standards because they have My power to refuse to obey evil temptations, the power to destroy the works of evil and the power to love everyone as I love them.  
   Since the day of the first Pentecost My children have had the power to do what I ask them to do.  (Acts 2:1-4)  The only command to My children is to love others as I love them. (John 13:34)  All of My admonitions and instructions through Jesus and the new covenant prophets are fulfilled in your loving everyone, human enemies and friends, with the same love that I love you. 
    Understanding the history of your heritage as My child and My wonderful gift to you of My Holy Spirit should spur you to choose to adhere only to My standards of love, loving your human enemies as well as your friends.  This knowledge should empower you, by the power of My Holy Spirit, to reject every temptation to do the devil's will in the earth.  This knowledge should empower you to always do My will of love and goodness in the earth which brings into your life all the blessings of My kingdom, causing My kingdom to come into your life as it is in My heaven.  
    I am your Loving Father.  Everything that I have is yours.
    I AM LOVE.

NEW BEGINNINGS - HIGH STANDARDS BRING BIG REWARDS

Dear Precious Child,
   I spoke through My Son Jesus about the rewards that come when My children exhibit My standards in the earth, the standards of My kingdom of love of which there are many.  All of My standards come from My love for all humans and my love for the earth that I created for them because I am Love.  Remember that one of My promises is that when the enemy comes in like a flood in your life, that My Spirit will raise up My standards against him.  That means that when evil comes against you in your life, I will raise up in you My standard of goodness which counteracts the evil and I will cause you to sow goodness in the earth instead of adding evil to evil.  That standard of goodness done to the person who does evil deeds to you will cause the person to be tenderized by the good deeds from you and glorify Me and My kingdom of goodness.  The evil demons behind the original evil action will have to flee because they can't stand to be in the presence of love. 
   What is evident in My Instruction Book that I gave to you is that there are great rewards for My children who perform My standards of love in evil situations.   Jesus said that there are great rewards for you and My other children who do not practice piety in public to be seen by others, but instead do their praying, their giving and their fasting in private between only you and Me.  He said clearly and distinctly that those who practice piety in public to be seen by others will NOT receive any reward from Me because they have received what they desired, which was the praise of people.  (Matthew 6:1-6)  I said through Jesus that My children who pray in their closets alone with Me, give their monetary gifts in private and fast with a joyful face so that they cannot be identified as fasting will receive great rewards from Me.  He said three times that I will not reward the hypocrite who prays, gives alms and fasts to be seen by people, but that I will reward those who raise My standards quietly without fanfare, always in secret. (Matthew 6:4, 6 and 17)
    I said that you must not only believe that I Am, but you must believe that I  reward those who diligently seek Me.  When you seek Me and My righteous behavior, you will do in the earth what I do in the heavens. As a result of those standards of love and goodness, My rewards come into your life because you are sowing My love in the earth which causes My kingdom to flood into your life.  It's the simple example that Jesus taught about seed sowing and harvest.  Whatever seeds you sow in the earth will return the same plants, or rewads, into your life.  If you sow  love, you will reap love; if you sow evil, you will reap evil. 
    Some of My children who profess My name who still sow evil seeds because of the cares of the world, the deceitfulness of riches and other evil actions have allowed demonic spirits to capture their minds.  They sow seeds of evil and reap evil events into their lives and wonder why.  They think that only professing My name will qualify them for My rewards.  I said it's those of My children who do My will of raising My standards of love and goodness in the face of evil who will inherit My kingdom living while they live in the earth. (Matthew 6:10)   Only those children of Mine who sow love seeds in the world will inherit the rewards from My kingdom of love into their lives.  They cannot sow evil seeds and expect to reap My loving rewards.  They can't reap My rewards because they have sown seeds into the devil's garden.  The devil does not reward his children with good and loving events because he, himself, is the father of evil.  He rewards people who do his will with evil events.  Only those of My children who sow loving and good seeds will inherit My rewards because they have sown loving seeds into My garden of love.
    My rewards are My blessings.  I said that the merciful are blessed by Me and are rewardd by obtaining mercy from others. (Matthew 5:7)  I said that the meek are rewarded by inheriting My blessings while in the earth. (Matthew 5;5)  I said that the pure in heart are blessed because they see Me, in their dreams and visions. ( Matthew 5:8)  I said that the poor in spirit who seek Me are blessed and rewarded by inheriting My kingdom. (Matthew 5:3) I said that those who mourn will be blessed by Me with comfort, prophesying that those who mourn after the death of Jesus would be comforted by My Spirit living inside of them.  (Matthew 5:4)  I said that those who hunger and thirst for My righteousness will be blessed by being rewarded by having My Spirit living inside of them and satisfying them by making them clean and whole. (Matthew 5:9)   I said that those of My children who are peacemakers in every situation are blessed and rewarded by being called My children, qualifying them for My kingdom coming into their lives. (Matthew 5:9) I said that those who are reviled and persecuted falsely for My account will be blessed.  I said they should rejoice because their rewards are great in My heavenly kingdom. (Matthew 5;11-12)
   In My Book I gave you examples of people who were persecuted for My sake.  Think about Stephen who was being stoned and I opened the heavens to him so that he saw Jesus and Me.  He visited heaven before his body died from the stoning.  Before his body died he asked Me not to hold the sins of the people against them.  He was blessed above measure by coming into My kingdom before his body died. 
   Think also about Peter and Paul who were sent to prison on My account.  They were blessed miraculously by My kingdom rewarding them by opening the prison doors so that they could be released, continuing to minister My kingdom benefits to the multitudes.
    Great are the rewards of My children who seek Me, seek My righteousness and do My will in the earth.  By doing My will, they raise My standard of good against the standards of evil in the world.  My children who do My standards in the earth increase My kingdom in the world, as I intended.  They glorify Me by returning good for evil.  Go and do likewise.
     Your Father of High Standards of Love

NEW BEGINNINGS - YOKE STANDARDS
Dear Precious Child,
   My instruction book to you and all of My children is full of My insights, wisdom, instructions, revelations, doctrines and examples relating to how for you to live successfully in your earth and how to practice holiness in your daily life relating to how to treat My other children. (II Corinthians 3:16)  Except for the evil that is in the earth, remember that I created everything in it and so I know how for you to exist with meekness and lowliness of heart so that you will have peace for your soul. (Matthew 11:28-30)
   In asking you to be yoked to Me, I promised that you would have peace for your soul.  (Matthew 5:33)  My peace for their minds is the greatest need that My children have, no matter their station in life.  The minds of My children spin out of control with worry, anxiety, doubt, hatred, anger, vengeance, lust and other thoughts from hell, all put there by the evil one, the devil. (Matthew 6:25-33) That evil demonic being wants to defeat all of My children and the way that he chooses to do it is by poisoning their minds with his temptations so that My children will obey him instead of obeying Me.  In obeying him, My children become yoked to him and his evil ways, poisoning their own lives and the lives of their family members and friends with his destructive ways which rob, kill and destroy them. (John 10:10)
    My instructions to you are that you must choose to be yoked to Me instead of yoked to the devil and his destructive ways.  I even give you the power to be joined with Me and that is through the power of My Holy Spirit.  When you invite My Holy Spirit to make His home inside of you, you are permanently joined with Me because you have become the temple or home to My Holy Spirit.  (I Corinthians 6:19-20)  We become joined as One spirit from that day forth. (I Corinthians 6:17)   The secret to having My kingdom on earth in your life is that you constantly allow Me to lead and direct your life into the green pastures and still waters where you have peace for your mind, as I promised you if you allow Me to be your Good Father with My guidance and leadership.
    That truth is the means by which My kingdom comes into your life on earth as it is in heaven because you have done My will in the earth, becoming My image of love, just as I am. (Matthew 6:10)  All of the teachings of Jesus are to lead you into having My kingdom in your life on earth.  All of the teachings of the new covenant prophets mirror and even expand on the same teachings of Jesus, encouraging you to stay yoked to Me through the Holy Spirit's guidance which is inside of you.  Jesus said that My Holy Spirit would explain more fully My instructions to you, all done from the inside of you into your thoughts.  I said that I would write them on your heart and I do it by the power of My Spirit when He lives inside of you. (John 16:12-15)
   With the power of My Holy Spirit inside of you, I made it possible that you and I would be so yoked together in unity that we would be one spirit, one mind and one heart, forgiving people immediately, loving and blessing your human enemies and defeating your spiritual enemies by battling them in My Holy Spirit's prayers in which I battle against your real enemies, the demonic powers of the air. (Ephesians 6: 10-18)
   Being yoked to Me means that you allow love to abound in your life, peace to abound in relationships and in your mind, mercy to be extended to all sinners, joy to be your strength, goodness and kindness to be extended to all people, and that you have My patience with everyone, enough even to wait for the answers to prayers.            
   Every thought either comes from heaven or hell.  Learn to recognize the ones from hell and then break your yoke to hell by casting out those demons from which the thoughts entered into your mind.  Only allow My thoughts of guidance, love and encouragement to enter into your thoughts.  When you do, you will have heaven on earth. 
   If you want rest for your mind, stay yoked to Me and My thoughts which are pure and loving. 
   Your Father of Easy Yokes

NEW BEGINNINGS - STANDARD OF BELIEF

Dear Precious Child,
   I have asked you and My other children many times to believe Me and My words that I spoke through Jesus and to believe the words that I now speak through My Holy Spirit to you relating to My standards.  I wish for you to adhere to all of My standards relating to how to act and react to other people when the devil floods your life with problems.  I ask you to raise My standards against the devil by loving the people, all for your benefit and good fortune.  
    Do you really believe that loving your enemies will result in good things coming your way, as I promised? (Matthew 5:43-45)  If you believe Me, then you will love your enemies.
     Do you really believe that blessing the people who oppose you and persecute you for doing kind things that I ask you to do will result in good things coming into your life, as I promised? (Matthew 5:10)  If you really believe Me, then you will bless your enemies, love them and pray for them.
    Do you really believe that returning good for evil done to you will result in good rewards flooding into your life, pressed down and running over, as I promised?  (Matthew 5:38-42) If you do, then you will return good for any evil done to you because you believe Me.
    Do you really believe that forgiving everyone who does evil deeds to you will result in My forgiving you, avenging you and causing multiple blessings to enter into your life, as I promised? (Matthew 6:12-14)  If you do believe Me, then you will forgive everyone who does any evil deed to you.
    Do you really believe that refusing to strike someone who strikes you but instead to turn the other cheek will bring you rewards from Me, as I promised? (Matthew 5:39)  If you believe that I know what I am talking about, then you will never strike back at anybody in word or action.
    Do you really believe that loving your enemies and praying for them instead of cursing them will cause even your enemies to be at peace with you, as I promised? (Matthew 5:44)  If you believe Me, then you will instantly extend love to your human enemies and pray for them because you believe Me.
    Do you really believe that praying in private with just Me as your only companion, also giving your gifts of money in private and fasting in private will result in My rewarding you openly because I have heard your prayers in secret, as I promised? (Matthew 6:2-6; 16-18)  If you really do believe Me, then you will bring all of your concerns, your problems, your questions and your worries to Me in the quiet of your home and commune with Me one on one.  It's called the communion that Jesus instituted.  
    Do you really believe that refusing to duplicate the rhetoric and actions of divisive politicians and hypocritical religious leaders, instead duplicating the behavior of Jesus as revealed by My Spirit will result in great rewards, as promised by Me? (Matthew 5:20)  If you do believe Me, then you will refuse to listen to the poisonous name calling and toxic rhetoric of divisive politicians and religious leaders who substitute extreme patriotism for the fruit of My Spirit. 
    OR -------- do you believe that those valuable instructions from Me are too grievous for you to do all of them and so you only rely on your water baptism to bring My blessings upon you and your family, even though My words say otherwise?   Your profession of believing IN Me is not believing Me and My instructional words to you which protect you from the destruction caused by your joining with evil. 
    It is your behavior as My child in the earth, your righteous works of love in the lives of My other children, which brings My rewards into your life.  I said that you must not only believe that I AM, but you must believe that I am the rewarder of those of My children who diligently seek Me AND MY RIGHTEOUSNESS with their whole heart. (Matthew 6:33)  It's My righteous behavior of love being displayed by you which unlocks the storage bin which contains My rewards, causing them to flood into your life, blessing you with all of My gifts. 
    Remember that I said whatever you do to the least of My children, you do to Me. (Matthew 25:40)   Whatever you do to the poor, the crippled, the strangers, the depressed, the unbelievers, the people you consider infidels, people of diverse races, people who are deceived, the sinners, the lost and the forgotten, what you do to them you do to Me.  It is those actions toward them that are rewarded by Me because you, as My child, are the only hands that I have in the world.  Your voice is the only voice that I have in the world.  Your goods are the only goods to give that I have in the world.  My children are My only physical distributing agents in the world.  Your loving heart is the only heart that I have in the world through which I can funnel My love to unloved people.
    Many of My children call themselves believers who only believe the same things that the destructive politicians believe and the narrow minded religious leaders believe, the same people who bind additional burdens onto people.  I said that your righteousness must exceed those people for you to enter into My kingdom living while in the world.  Believing only superficial and mundane things will not qualify you for My abundant kingdom benefits.  I said that some will say, "Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name?"  And I will say to depart from Me because I never knew you and you never really knew Me.  
   Yes, the way is narrow which leads to the abundant life and the way is wide which leads to destruction.  (Matthew 6:11-14)  Those people who seek Me with their whole hearts will find Me.  It takes seeking Me with your whole heart to tunnel through the mountains of mental debris that the devil places in your path.  When you seek Me with your whole heart, you will call upon Me and I will answer and heal your life, making you the head and not the tail, placing you above the evil in the earth instead of your being under it. (Deuteronomy 28:13)
    Rebelliously picking and choosing what you will believe is self destructive.  Believing everything that I ask you to do in order to enter into kingdom living is paramount to your having My abundant life while here on earth.  It's a matter of sowing seeds of unconditional love in the earth and those seeds producing love plants in your life, causing you to be flooded with My loving benefits of being My child.  It's all so simple but very hard without the power of My Holy Spirit.  I gave you the power necessary to have the abundant life, My Holy Spirit.  You must use His power of faith in your life.  He gives to you the most magnificent power available to all people by which your finding the narrow way becomes easy and fruitful for you. (John 16:12-15)
   So you must decide if you really believe what I told you through your brother Jesus and through My Spirit who makes His words cut asunder the soul and the spirit, by discerning the thoughts and intents of your heart relating to your level of belief.  Faith and belief come from your hearing My words to you. (Romans 10:17; Hebrews 11:1)  Partial belief is no belief.  I said that those people who only had partial belief know neither the scriptures nor the power of My Spirit. (Mark 12:24)
   I want to reward you with all of My heavenly blessings. (Hebrews 11:6)  You must be willing to cast aside everything that stands between us in order to hear My words, allowing My Spirit to infuse into you My power from on high.  You become on fire with My Holy Spirit which burns out the dross that evil programmed into your thoughts and your flesh.  My Spirit makes you pure and righteous in My sight.   It is My righteousness in you that qualifies you for My kingdom coming into your life on earth as it is in heaven.
   Seek Me with your whole heart and you will find Me.  Seek My righteousness and you will hear My words which purify you and make you whole.
    I love to fulfill My promises to you of giving you all the blessings of My kingdom.  You must believe Me first and do the works of love which I speak to you. (John 13:34-35; John 14:21; John 15:12)

NEW BEGINNINGS - STORED TREASURES

Dear Precious Child,
    Jesus reiterated time and time again how important it is that you do in secret the things that I ask you to do rather than doing them in front of people.  It is in that context that He said that you should not store up treasures on earth where moths and rust can corrupt them or thieves can steal them.   He said in the same teaching that you should not pray in public, expecting people to praise you for your wording, also that you should not give your money in public where people praise you, and that you should not fast openly where people can praise you for your religious practices.  All of those are done in public, in front of people.  When prayers are done in public, the devil's temptations flood into your mind, encouraging you to add flowery words to your prayers so that people will know you are religious, setting up your treasure on earth so that people will praise you for your prayers,  When you give money publicly, the devil wants you to brag to somebody about the amount given, setting up your treasure on earth which is the accolades of people.  When you fast and put on a sad look, making sure that people know that you are fasting, you are setting up your treasure on earth, expecting people to respect you for your restricting of yourself in My name.  If you do those things to be praised by people, then you get a meager reward which will pass away before you leave the company of the people.  The people will forget all about your prayer, your giving and your fasting.  You have set up treasures on earth rather than in My heaven and your rewards are short lived.(Matthew 6:19-21)
   However, if you only pray in secret to Me, also give your money in secret so that you don't even know how much you are giving, and if you fast with a happy face and only unto Me, then you have set up treasures for yourself in heaven and I will reward you openly.  If you forgive those who hurt you and persecute you, if you turn the other cheek when struck, if you love your enemies and do good to them, when you are robbed if you give your coat also if the robber demands you cloak, and if you love unconditionally your enemies as well as your friends, then you are also laying up treasures in heaven.  Because you have done what I ask you to do, your rewards are many because you have laid your treasures up in my heaven.  When you do what I ask you to do, all of which are for your protection from evil, you receive a magnificent reward because I am your Father who rewards those people who diligently seek Me.
   When you love and forgive the thief, the adulterer, the liar, the hypocrite, the corrupt politician, the preacher who is divisive, the child abuser, the rebellious child, the sinner, the person who fasts to be seen, the person who brags about his giving, the religious person who puts on a sad face while fasting, then you have laid up treasures for yourself in heaven.
    The treasures are your inheritance which comes upon you when you are doing what I ask you to do.  My treasures come upon you because you have sown seeds into My kingdom of good and you have magnified goodness in the earth, so My kingdom is able to reward you because you have shown that you belong to Me as My child.  I said that if you love Me that you will do what I, your loving Father, commands you to do.  (I John 5: 1-5)  My admonitions are not grievous and hard to do. I even gave you My own power, My Holy Spirit, who empowers you to take My advice to heart and do it because you know that My commands are for your protection, causing you to avoid evil, and My commands are for your entitlement as My child, qualifying you to receive the abundant life on earth that I promised to all of My children.  Those of My children whose character of love identifies them as My children are constantly sowing treasures into My heaven and reaping the benefits of those treasures.
    Your treasures that are stored in My heaven are safe and gaining interest to the highest rate of return so that I can send them back to you pressed down and running over.  That's what Love does.
     Keeping My words and obeying them are a witness to your being a child of My goodness, eager to take the advice of Your Loving Father.
    I love everyone but I can only reward those of My children who follow My advice because My advice keeps you pure and free from the works of evil.
    Your Father of Great Rewards

NEW BEGINNINGS - LEAST AND GREATEST STANDARDS


Dear Precious Child,
    Jesus said that His hope was that you and the rest of My children will become the light of the world, letting the light of My righteousness so shine before people what they will glorify Me.  The thought will be that people will discern that I am like My children. (Matthew 5:14-16)  The light to which He referred is the light of My reflection in you, your becoming so intimately acquainted with Me that you do what I have asked you to do, which is to love your enemies, to do good to them, to pray for them, to be peacemakers, to be merciful and forgiving, to be meek and humble, to be pure in heart and to love your enemies when you are persecuted for being My righteousness, that being to love others as I love you.  (Matthew 5:1-10;John 13:34-35)
    Jesus said that the phenomenon of My coming to earth to live in people was prophesied by the prophets and were spoken by Him.  He said that until heaven and earth pass away that none of the prophesies will pass away relating to Me and My living inside of My children, thus conforming them into My image, but that the prophesies will all be accomplished, every one of them.  (Matthew 5:18) In fact, Jesus said that He was fulfilling all of the prophesies relating to His life. 
   Then He began His powerful teachings about the behaviors of My children which glorify Me and My kingdom.   He told My children about loving your enemies, refusing to become angry, making peace with anyone who accuses you, turning the other cheek if you are struck, loving your enemies and praying for those who persecute you so that you will be known as My children.  He told them that My desire is that they be perfect, just as I am perfect.(Matthew 5:48)  He said that anyone who relaxes one of the least commands relating to My new covenant of Love and teaches other people to relax even the least of His commands will be least in My kingdom family.  He challenged My children to not only do what He commanded but to also teach other people to follow them, saying those people who do them and teach others to do them will be great in My kingdom family.  He even said that their righteousness must exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees or they will never enter into My kingdom.  You will note that He was talking about earthly works, doing what I command you to do to others, that if you do what He taught you to do about becoming the reflection of My light and love in the world, that you will enter into My kingdom benefits while still in the world. (Luke 11:20)
   When you become My image in the world, the witness to the world of My righteousness, only My kingdom of love will surround you and pour My blessings upon you. You are immune to the presence of evil because you listen to My words and do what I have advised you to do.  You sidestep every trap set by the devil to harness you and lead you into his kingdom of destruction and death.  Doing evil does not appeal to you because you love good instead of evil. 
    The words of Jesus will not pass away.  They are My words of guidance to lead you onto the right paths so that you will inherit all the blessings that I promised to My children.  I caused many new covenant prophets to teach the same truths that Jesus taught, amplifying them by the power of My Holy Spirit, speaking the same truths and doing My righteous actions themselves. They experienced My kingdom coming into their lives when they followed all the teachings that I spoke through My Son Jesus.  They are great in My kingdom because they have kept all the words of loving others that I commanded them to keep, and in doing it they inherited all of My promises.
   The standard of which Jesus spoke is My standard of righteousness, loving others as I love you, forgiving others as I forgive you, being merciful, kind, good, patient, faithful, joyful, loving and forever being peacemakers in the world.  All of those attitudes are the attributes of My Holy Spirit who lives inside of you, conforming you into My image in the world.  When you refuse the temptations from hell but instead display My own loving character to the world, My kingdom comes into your life on earth.
   The words of Jesus are the commandments of My new covenant of Love.  They are more exacting and more glorious than the commandments under the old covenant because of the presence of My Holy Spirit inside of you, giving you the power to become My child, conforming you into My image in the world and giving you the power to refuse evil and embrace My goodness.
   Become My standard in the world, letting the light of My character shine through you so that people will see My standard of unconditional love in you and glorify Me.
   This truth was prophesied.  You must seek Me and allow My Spirit to fulfill it in you.
   Your world is looking for My standard of love.  You have the power of My Spirit to show them My standard, the standard of unconditional love. 
   Your Loving, Glorious Father

NEW BEGINNINGS - STANDARD FOR ASKING AND RECEIVING

Dear Precious Child,
    So many of My promises have to do with your receiving answers to your prayers.  That is what most requests to Me involve which are made by My children.  Jesus Christ, My first son, was experienced in asking Me for things and receiving them.  That is why He so willingly told you the prerequisites for speedily getting your prayers answered.  The prerequisites are not related to My being reluctant to answer your prayers but they are related to keeping the avenues open from My heaven to your earth upon which My fulfillment of your requests depend. 
   For instance, Jesus said that if you ask it will be given to you, that if you seek you will find, and that if you knock it will be opened to you.  He even explained it by saying that no man, if his son asks for bread will give him a stone or if his son asks for a fish will be given a serpent by his father.  He said that people, being evil, give good gifts to their children, so how much more will I give good things to those who ask Me.  
   Asking is a normal thing for children to do, even My own children. (Matthew 7:7-11)  In his teaching about asking Jesus added the standard that must be accompanied by your asking.  He said "So" --- meaning that there is a prerequisite to receiving what you ask.  He said, "So what you wish that men would do to you, you must also do to them." (verse 12)   He was talking about keeping the narrow gate open that leads to the stream of blessings of life flowing to you.  That narrow gate is your behavior in the way you treat other people. 
   He had just finished teaching about judging and that if you judge someone that you will be judged by the devil using the people you judged. (Matthew 7:1-2)  In the same vein of thought Jesus added the truth about asking and receiving.  He identified the behavior that is necessary for you to treat other people when He said, "So what you wish that men would do to you, you must also do to them."  (Matthew 7:12) He proceeded to talk about the wide gate that leads to destruction and the narrow gate that leads to the abundant life that I promised My children. (Matthew 7:13-14)  In order for your prayers to be answered, Jesus said that you must treat other people the way you want to be treated for the answers to your prayers to flow down the narrow path that leads from My heaven to the abundant life for you. 
   The prerequisite to receiving the answers to your prayers hinges on sowing and reaping, sowing good seeds in the lives of other people so that you are declaring that you are on the side of good instead of evil.  The people who are on the side of good will reap the answers to their prayers.  I have to use people in My scenarios where I answer prayers so My children must always treat other people with love and respect for those people to want to cooperate with Me in blessing them. 
    If you are forgiving of others, then those people will want to work with Me if I choose them as the avenue through whom I answer your prayers.
    If you are unforgiving, unmerciful and vengeful toward others, it is impossible for Me to find someone through whom I can bless you with the answer to your prayers which lead to abundant living.
    The strategy is in keeping the narrow gate open through which I answer your prayers.   Doing to others as you want them to do to you involves love and respect.  When you are obedient in loving others and respecting others, then there are no blockages or barriers on the avenue leading to your life on which My blessings flow. (Isaiah 59:1-2)  I said to My children through the prophet Isaiah that I am neither deaf so that I can't hear your prayers nor are My hands so short that I cannot save you, but your iniquities have set up a separation between us and your sins have made it impossible for Me to hear you because you have chosen to retreat into another father's kingdom, the kingdom of destruction. 
   My good works in the earth cannot be done by Me in the presence of evil.  I said you love one and hate the other.  You either hate the evil from the devil and love the good that comes from Me or you love the evil and hate the good. (Matthew 6:24)
   Learn from the teaching of Jesus about the standard that must be in operation before I can answer your prayers that you ask, that being that you must do to others as you want them to do to you.  Good begets good and evil begets evil.  Do good to everyone and I will be able to influence them to return the good that you sowed in their lives by returning good multiplied to you in My answers to your prayers.
    Your Father of Answered Prayers.

NEW BEGINNINGS - STANDARD AGAINST IDOLATRY

Dear Precious Child,
   When I created your world for you and all of My children, I gave it to all of you and told you that it is yours upon which you have full dominion. (Genesis 1: 27-31) It became yours and it was no longer My property to dominate.  So in giving it to My children, I no longer had dominion over it unless My children invite Me into it with their faith and trust in Me to give them help and assistance.  But, they still have dominion.  I gave My sovereignty in the earth to My children.  However, I retained My sovereignty in the heavens from which the earth was created.  The only times when I become sovereign in the earth again is when My children ask for My help and allow Me to be sovereign in troublesome matters.  When they are wise enough to ask for My help, then I become sovereign in that matter because they have relinquished their dominion to Me in that particular situation.
    Because I am the creator of the earth, can I just vicariously swoop in and rescue My children?   No, because of My giving the earth to My children, making them the bosses of it.  I do not take away any gift that I give.  If I did, I would not be Love.  The only way that I can enter into the earth with My Saving grace is when invited into it by My children.  That is called prayers.  Prayers are when My children are unable to handle a situation in the earth and they call upon Me, as their Father, to enter the situation and work with them to correct it.  That is why I said anyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved. (II Samuel 22:4; Psalm 18:3; I Timothy 2:4)  
   When the first man did not take My advice and allowed evil to enter into his beautiful world, which was the gift that I gave to him,  he gave dominion of the earth to an evil alien called the devil.  From that day forth the earth was cursed with his demons, men were cursed, women were cursed, animals were cursed and the ground was cursed by the presence of demons who became residents of the earth in addition to My children.  The demons are spiritual beings and are sent from hell to tempt My children to do their evil deeds in the earth, thus bringing more and more curses into their lives.  After the first man opened the door to evil and became cursed with shame, I told him about the curses that had invaded his world because of his choice.  (Genesis 3:9-21)     
     Multitudes of times every second of every day the same scenario happens, My children obey the temptations of the devil in their thoughts and their lives become more and more cursed because of the presence of evil in their lives.  I cannot swoop in to help until they ask Me for My assistance, which is called prayers.  I am eagerly awaiting their pleas for help so that I can meet My Fatherly obligations of love and rescue My children from the clutches of the devil who entered the earth in the beginning at the invitation of the first man, Adam.
   There are several things that restrict My entry into the world to help My children.  One is idolatry, placing your dependence upon other gods before Me.  Those gods can be your dependence upon another person, your dependence upon your  country, your dependence upon sports figures, your dependence upon entertainment figures, your dependence upon religious leaders or your dependence upon political leaders.  When My children hold any earthly being in esteem and at the forefront of their minds as far as saving them from calamity and destruction, then those leaders have become the idols of My children.  If belonging to an organization or certain church gives prestige to My children, then the church has become an idol.  If you allow a religious teacher to become the answer to all of your needs, then that person is an idol.  If a political person or organization is your identify and your role model, then they are your idols.  They are all made of earthly clay and dirt and they have no power to save you from the works of the devil, who is a spiritual entity.   Only I can defeat the works of the devil and his demons in your life. 
   Very often, My children try to blend national patriotism with their relationship with Me and My kingdom, calling it true religion.  They remain powerless because they have tried to hold onto an idol while calling on Me for help to relieve them of a burden which was probably caused by their idolatry of their nation and its rulers or leaders.  I cannot enter into their lives with My saving power as long as they are in unity with the demons of politics as their idols, of which Jesus warned many times. (Matthew 23:13-30)   He said that if you hold onto earthly leaders as your idols, then I cannot enter into your life with My saving powers.   Earthly political and religious leaders are human, just like you are, and they are tempted by the devil and yield to him just like you do.   When you make heroes of them, you make idols of them and you bind yourself to the same demons which influence and rule them.  So if you make humans your idols, you bind yourself to the demons who motivate them. 
    When I said that you must have no other gods before Me, I was telling you that the person, entity, organization, church or leaders whom you idolize are of the world and are motivated by evil, just as you occasionally are.  When you bind yourself to them by adoration, you bind yourself to the demons who motivate them.  (I Corinthians 10:19-21)  If you put them before Me, you restrict My ability to swoop in with My saving powers in answer to your prayers.  You are double minded, not single minded with Me as your Father of Love.
    If your thoughts are continually on your political party, your nation, your political or religious leaders, then you are bound to them in our mind.  You have left your first love, who is your Loving Father. 
    My standard against idolatry is for you to let Me, as your Loving Father, have first place in your heart and in your mind.  When you do, I am eager and able to swoop in to help you in times of trouble   When your heart is yielded to Me, My avenue into your situations is clear and has become the narrow way that leads to the abundant life which I am eager to deliver. (Matthew 7:13-20)
    Your Loving, Peaceful Father

NEW BEGINNINGS - STANDARDS AGAINST SWEARING

Dear Precious Child,
    When the devil floods into your life or your world, I want to raise My standard in you against his evil work.  Through My Son Jesus I spoke directly to some of the devil's deceptive works and told My children about My standards relating to ways to overcome his temptations which are sent into your thoughts to bind you to his works through which he can curse your life.  My standards stand against the works of the devil and protect My children from falling into unity with him through which they do his evil will in the earth.
    One of My standards which stands against evil relates to the old religious law about not swearing falsely, but instead to perform your oaths as unto Me.  Jesus cautioned you about not only refusing to swear falsely, but He told you not to even be persuaded to take an oath to do anything, swearing by heaven, by earth, by Me, by your nation or its headquarters, not swearing that you will do something and not swearing to tell the truth.  (Matthew 5:33-36)  If you remember, he said anything more than yes or no comes from evil.  In other words, He said that a requirement to take an oath is a trap by the devil set for you so that if you do not tell the complete truth or do what you swore to do, that the door is open for the devil to condemn you with guilt, torturing you with his mental thoughts of being punished for your not telling the complete truth or your not performing the duty to which you swore to do.  Instead of taking an oath or swearing to do something, Jesus said that you should merely say yes or no.  Following that is when He said something profound, that anything more than yes or no comes from evil.  In saying that, He identified the devil's hand in forcing people to take an oath.  (Matthew 5:37)
   Relate this to the truth Jesus taught about whether to give tribute to an earthly nation or to Me.  Pointing to a coin with Caesar's head on it, He said to ONLY give to Caesar what is Caesar's but to give to Me what is Mine.  In other words, pay your required taxes to your nation, as required by national law, but your allegiance and devotion should only be reserved for Me and My kingdom.  (Mark 12:13-17) 
   Devout oaths of allegiance unite you to the evil things of an earthly nation as well as the good things, bringing the devil's judgment upon you for your blind allegiance to the nation's works of evil.  Being united to Me and My kingdom only unites you to My wonderful blessings which I have stored for your inheritance when My righteousness in you proves your heritage as My child.  Do not give up your rightful inheritance as My child by ignorantly swearing allegiance to an earthly nation in which evil often prevails by robbing from the poor in preference to the rich, refusing to help widows and orphans, giving honor to the rich who have a difficult time entering into My kingdom because of their love for riches and their places of honor in their nation. (Isaiah 10:1-6; Matthew 19:23-26)
   Heed My standards as set forth in My Instruction Book, the Bible, as spoken by My Very Own Son Jesus.  He said He only spoke what He heard from Me.   My ways are not your ways of honoring the rulers of your earthly nation with blind allegiance.  When their fruit is rotten and poisonous, do not swear allegiance to them or you will eat their fruit and become rotten yourselves, rejecting My kingdom in favor or an evil earthly nation. 
  I told you to obey the laws of your nation and the local authorities, but I never told you to swear blind allegiance to its kings, princes, legislators, senators, judges and heads of state, revering them as special enough to be idolized.  If you do, you sign up for the curses that they sow in the earth.  They are made from the dirt of the earth, just as your flesh.
   You are not of an earthly nation in the world.  If you pledge your allegiance and devotion to it, you will reap the devil's curses with which the nation engages.  You are of My family, a kingdom which cannot be destroyed or defeated.  (Romans 12:2)  Magnify My kingdom in your life instead of magnifying a nation which will inherit the devil's curses because of the evil it has done.
    Take the admonishment of Jesus to heart about refusing to take an oath or swear allegiance to something.  He was setting the standard of only letting your answer be yes or no because anything else, such as swearing allegiance or taking an oath, comes of evil to entrap you into future guilt, condemnation and other curses, all of which are from hell and are destructive.

NEW BEGINNINGS - ANTI-WORRY STANDARDS

Dear Precious Child,
    Yes, I do have a standard against the devil's thoughts of worry and anxiety.  It is faith in Me and My ability to provide for you.  Jesus identified where worry and anxiety originate, and it is in the devil and his kingdom.  He said that you cannot have two masters, that you will either love one and hate the other, being devoted to one and despise the other.  He said you can't serve both Me and the mammon of the devil.   Then He immediately said, "THEREFORE".......
    In other words, following the "therefore" He was giving the standard that you must raise in your life against the worrying and anxious thoughts of the devil that he places in your mind.  My standard, instead of worrying. is for you to first seek Me and My kingdom and My righteousness and everything that you will ever need will be added to you. (Matthew 6:33)  When you are worrying you are in unity with the kingdom of hell because he has already robbed you of your goods.  So when you are lacking in any earthly goods, food to eat, clothes to wear and others, instead of spending lots of energy worrying in response to the devil's temptations in your thoughts, come to Me, seeking Me and My standards of ways that I taught you in order to access My provisions for you. 
   Praying in one-on-one communion with Me will result in My instructions to you on how to access My provisions for you as My child.  I may tell you that I have already sent to you what you need.  In other instances I may tell you that you need to ask forgiveness of someone.  In other instances I might tell you to sow seeds of giving by giving something you have to someone who needs it.  I will tell you what to do to counteract what you have done to be inside the flood of the devil's curses.  (Matthew 5:23-24)
    If you will notice in your Instruction Book, this valuable teaching by Jesus immediately follows His telling you how to pray.  Part of that prayer was, "Give us this day our daily bread." (Matthew 6:11)  That isn't all that he prayed.  He added to the request for daily bread another important truth; that being this: "And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us."  Seeking Me first instead of worrying might result in My telling you to forgive someone because when you are seeking vengeance against someone you have joined in unity with the curses from hell and you have left My family of plenty and joined with the family of lack from hell.   
   If you are worrying about something, then you are obviously in need of some instructions from Me on what you can do in order to allow Me to solve your problem.  When the devil begins to flood your mind with thoughts of lack, causing you to worry and fret about something, then you need to FIRST come to Me, just like Jesus taught you to do, and listen to My wisdom relating to your particular situation.  In every circumstance of lacking anything, instead of first worrying about it as coached by the devil, FIRST do what Jesus said to do, come to Me for the answer to your problem.  Very simply, when you seek Me and seek to do what is loving and kind in the situation, as coached by Me, then the solution to your problem will be speedy because you are operating in unity with My kingdom of love which floods your life with My blessings.
    I never stop My blessings from flowing into the lives of My children.  My love will never stop My loving provisions to you.  What happens is that lack is always preceded by negative, discordant, strife filled, angry, unforgiving attitudes from you which causes the devil to construct a dam between you and your blessings, damming up My abundant provisions from coming to you.  (Isaiah 59:1-2)
    In My instructions to you about seeking My kingdom for answers to your problems I told you about the lilies of the field and the birds of the air and how I provide for them abundantly.  They don't have human minds which spin out of control in answer to the devil's worry thoughts.  The lilies of the field just trust Me to provide rain and sun for them to grow and the birds trust Me to provide grain and berries for them.  (Matthew 6:24-33)
    In the face of lack of any kind, FIRST come to Me for My solution to the problem, being willing to change your negative attitudes into My loving ones.  I said that the peacemakers are called My children and the people who are persecuted for being righteous will inherit My kingdom.
   First things first -- seek Me in the face of lack, lack of goods, lack of wisdom, lack of truth, lack of revelation, lack of any kind.  (James 1:5-8)  I will supply your needs.
   Your Father of Plenty

NEW BEGINNINGS - STANDARD AGAINST HYPOCRISY

Dear Precious Child,
   If you notice, all of My standards stand against something that the devil does in your world.  For instance I warned against becoming a hypocrite, a hypocrite being a  person who wants to be noticed for being religious and seemingly pious.  The first standard against being a hypocrite is in giving alms.  I said not to announce your gifts to the poor or your pledges in church or the time you spend serving meals to the elderly.   Those are what the hypocrites do and they do it to be praised by people.  I said you will receive no reward from Me because you have already received acclaim from people.  The problem is in the motivation, whether the giving is to be seen by people or alone from a pure heart and given to those in need.  My standard is that when you give money that you should not know how much you give because you have reached into your wallet and taken out an amount not even known to yourself to give to those in need.  When you don't know how much you give, then you won't brag about the amount.  I said to let your gifts to the poor be in secret and then I will reward you openly. (Matthew 6:1-4)
   Another action that I taught you about in how to avoid becoming a hypocrite is in 
praying.  I told you that My standard is to pray in your home in a special place where no one else can see you.   In doing that, you are furthering our one-on-one personal relationship.  I said that when you pray as I instructed you to do, alone and in our intimate personal relationship, that I, who hears in secret, will reward you openly.  The hypocrites pray in public in order to be seen by people and praised as being godly while all the time they are only religious and hypocritical.  They want the acclaim of other people instead of My acclaim.  I said not to pray in public but instead to go into your room, shut the door, and pray to Me.  I said that I will see you in private and will reward you openly in answer to your prayers.
    I warned against the kind of prayers that the hypocrites pray, going on and on and on with empty phrases that don't impress Me in the least because those prayers are meant to impress the listeners, again getting the acclaim of people who say that you pray the best prayers. (Matthew 6:5-8)  Jesus said that if you pray with the motivation to impress the listeners, then you have the reward that you wanted, the praise of people and you will receive no reward from Me. 
    Jesus gave the standard about fasting also.  He said when you fast, do not  look sad and falsely humble like the hypocrites who disfigure their faces so that people will know that they are fasting and praise their loyalty to Me.  The hypocrites have no  loyalty to Me or they would not be fasting publicly to prove they are religious.  Jesus said when you fast to wash your face and put on a happy face to people and do not announce you are fasting.  He said that I will see you in secret and will reward you openly. (Matthew 6:15-18)
    Our relationship is Father/child, with no other human being between us.  It is one-on-one and that kind of relationship can only be furthered and fostered when you are alone with Me in true communion.  I said to let your wants be made known to Me in our one-on-one prayer sessions without anyone else present and I will reward you openly.  When you pray in public, the devil always impresses you to add flowery language so that you will be praised by the listeners.  You might be a person who normally would not do such a thing, but the devil is always there with his temptations when your pray in public.  Be safe and do what I instruct you to do, which is not to give the devil an inch so that he can bind you to his curses,  heaping his destruction onto you!  (Matthew 5:8-13; Matthew 24:13-14)
    The demon of hypocrisy is around constantly to tempt you into publicly praying, fasting, giving and ministering just to gain the praises of people.  Ministers will even encourage them sometimes.  Be cautious and be on alert to recognize the demon behind all hypocrisy.  I love the hypocrites.  I can't reward him or her if the motivation is to be praised by people.  Hypocrites are rewarded by the devil for being attentive to his words, doing his will in the earth.  His rewards are death and destruction.  (Mark 7:6)
    I warned you not to be like the hypocrites.  They already have their meager rewards from other people who praise them for their seemingly pious motivations while all the time they are whited sepulchers, dirty on the inside but publicly clean on the outside.  That is why My instructions are to have a one-on-one relationship with Me, where there is no audience for which you can perform.  You reduce the chance of becoming hypocritical when your prayers, giving, fasting and ministering are in secret.  (Matthew 23:27) 
    My standards are given to you to protect you from yielding to demonic spirits.  Appreciate the teachings and obey them so that you can have My kingdom come into your life just like it is in heaven.  (Matthew 6:10)
    Your Loving, Forgiving Father
