Moments with Jesus
My subject for today is "tranquility." In a world of sin, suffering, and death, it is difficult to maintain a tranquil and calm spirit, when all around you is fraught with the many pressures of life. The only way this can be accomplished is by having a mind that is staid upon faith and trust in me and a focus upon my continual love and care for you. As long as you are in this world, you will face seemingly insurmountable problems that only I can solve. The way to face these problems is to fully trust that I have a perfect plan for your life, and that as long as you cooperate with me, I will bring out the original plan that I have for you. [Jeremiah 29:11.]
The reason this plan has not reached its highest potential is because of the character flaws that impede the full display of my righteousness and holiness. Therefore, my final ministry in the heavenly Sanctuary must produce a completed work of grace in the hearts and lives of those who live in the last hour of earth's history. There must be no flaws in the weaving of the robe of my righteousness which I do with and for my finished bride. This is why I am giving these messages at this time, because so many have lost the vision of a completed work at the close of earth's history.
In fact, if I closed my work in the Most Holy Place of the heavenly Sanctuary with anything less than a finished and cleansed people, the universe would still be contaminated by this one planet which has joined with Satan and his hosts of evil who have defected and challenged the throne of heaven. But there is much joy in heaven, now, as my people are moving into line who love and honor me and keep my commandments from an intelligent understanding of the purpose of my laws which are the foundation of my character and my government. My commandments are the guarantee of the peace, joy, and tranquility of all who live in my realm and are in agreement with my heart, which is expressed in my laws.
But even now, after 6,000 years of the demonstration of what sin does, most people will choose death instead of life. The mystery of iniquity is beyond understanding. The demonstration which I have allowed for all to see - that sin leads to death - does not convince those who are determined to have their own way. That is why the joy of heaven is centered upon my beloved ones who have seen the results of sin and have chosen life. I am telling you this now, for soon it will be time for you to preach the last warning message to the inhabitants of earth that they will ever hear:
"Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." [Rev. 18:4.]
Those who are found worthy of giving this final message to the world will not be found among those who have given up the hope of becoming sinless before I come. These will not be called by my Spirit to give a message of coming out of sin while they are still tolerating it in their own lives. Those who do this are not my people, for they do not have the faith in me and love for me that makes it possible for me to cleanse them. Therefore I am emphasizing the word tranquility, for it is opposite of the work of the devil, for the wicked are like the tossing sea that cannot rest. [Isa. 57:20, 21.]
So come, my beloved ones, come into the haven that obedience to my laws produces. A sane mind, a quiet spirit, and an assurance of salvation is worth all the gold on earth, for these bring a peace that nothing can destroy. Look to me for this tranquility, this gold of character which represents those who have come through the fires of cleansing, and are in perfect agreement with me on every issue in their lives. Before you can participate in the loud cry of the fourth angel of Revelation 18, you must participate in the peace and tranquility of soul that comes from holiness of character and perfect agreement with me. Then you will be a fit vessel to represent my character and my kingdom.
Go now to the activities of your day, but keep your hearts uplifted for the showers of the latter rain that are pouring out for everyone who is going through the cleansing and blotting out of sin and being sealed forever as citizens of my kingdom of love, joy, peace, and tranquility. Lovingly, Jesus.
