Moments with Jesus
The subject for today is "communication." I am a God of communication, not only with my Father, the angels, and humanity, but also with all the creatures, and the plants that grow from the earth that I have created and to whom I give life. Even the spheres and galaxies of stars that circle the universe must be in constant communication and connection with me in order to fulfill the purpose for which they were created. I create nothing that is valueless to everything else in the whole economy of the universe, and the spheres, as they wing their way across the trackless skies, are on an exact course that has an effect upon every other sphere in perfect balance and communication.
So it is with everything that I create. There is a balance and harmony in all of nature that interacts and effects all other living things. You can see this only dimly now, but throughout all eternity I will continue to reveal to you the secrets of nature and creation. But what I want to point out right now is that each of you is important in the great scheme of eternity, and you play an important part in the plan of salvation. When Satan sinned, he upset the whole structure in heaven and the functioning of the angelic hosts and their importance to the government of the kingdom of heaven. Therefore it took a drastic change in the smooth running current of all heaven and necessitated a plan to restore peace and tranquility. You know this as the plan of redemption.
But there is far more that you cannot comprehend because you see only the outer edge of the problem that sin has caused, and you cannot see the complicated and intricate details that are only dimly understood now. The most important thing that I want you to understand is that each one of you is important in the final culmination of history, and each has a definite work to do* for which you have been chosen and handpicked to accomplish for the restoration of the peace and tranquility that existed before sin entered the universe through Satan. This is what I want you to see so that you will not underestimate the importance of your calling [Matthew 22:14] and be tempted to default and abdicate your post of duty and lose the reward of the faithful of all ages.
But here is where understanding the importance of communication becomes vital. Can you imagine what would happen if the stars of heaven would lose connection with me and go on their own course? There would be total chaos in the universe. But this is what Satan and his angels attempted to do, and now everyone can see the results of this attempt. This is what happens when any person tries to function without connection with me. I am the source of your connection with life, and of all your attainments and productivity. I have given 6000 years of time to test this out and reveal the results of disconnecting with my life and wisdom. I will soon announce that the experiment into sin is finished and we need no more data to prove the case for righteousness against evil, and the case will be closed.
Which side will you be on when the gavel goes down and the case is closed for eternity? Will you have kept the faith and finished the course [1 Tim. 4:7, 8] and cast your vote upon the side of righteousness? Will you have solidified your connection with me on every point in your life? If so, your communication with me will be set for eternity, and you, like the stars of heaven, will continue to fulfill your appointed place in the plan of heaven to glorify your Creator forever. The decision is up to you! I hold out my arms to you to welcome you into the family in heaven where sin shall never rise again, for everyone there will have made a permanent choice for righteousness and holiness on every point and every area of their lives. There will be no disagreement in heaven, no questions about sin that are left unanswered. Make haste to enter the golden temple, for the light is still shining from the courts of heaven through the pearly gates to every soul who wishes to enter. Only overcomers will be allowed to enter [Rev. 21:7], for all who love and practice sin have proved themselves to be citizens of Satan's kingdom. So let the joy and peace of heaven keep you on the straight and narrow way that leads to life eternal [Matt. 7:13, 14], and you will be accepted as citizens of heaven when I come to claim you as my own! Lovingly, Jesus.
