REJOICE EVERMORE! Posted 051020 @ 12.22 pm
I have a word for the Body. The Father is saying: REJOICE EVERMORE! It is written in 1 Thessalonians 5.16: Rejoice evermore. Count it all joy when ye fall into diverse temptations, knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. If any of you lack wisdom, ask of Me and it shall be given you. Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another; not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving Me; rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. And not only so, but glory in tribulations also; knowing that tribulation worketh patience, and patience experience, and experience hope; and hope maketh not ashamed; because My love is shed abroad in your hearts by the Holy Ghost which was given unto you. For when ye were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But I commended My love toward you in that while ye were yet sinners, Christ died for you. Much more then, being justified by His blood, ye shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when ye were enemies, ye were reconciled to Myself by the death of My Son, much more, being reconciled, ye shall be saved by His life. And not only so, but also joy in your God through your Lord Jesus Christ, by whom ye have now received the atonement.
Bless them which persecute you; rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep, and I will fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope through the power of the Holy Ghost. Be filled with the fruit of the Spirit, which is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness; against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If ye live in the Spirit, also walk in the Spirit. Be not desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another, for My kingdom is not meat and drink; but righteousness and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. Rejoice inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. Therefore, take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake; for when ye are weak, He is strong. For the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in you. My grace is sufficient for thee; for My strength is made perfect in weakness. For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
I am nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and save such as be of a contrite spirit. I am your strength and your shield, trust in Me and ye shall be helped, and your heart shall greatly rejoice and ye will sing praises to Me. Serve Me with gladness; come before My presence with singing. The righteous shall be glad in Me and shall trust in Me; and all the upright in heart shall glory. Let all those that put their trust in Me rejoice; let them ever shout for joy, because I defendest them and they that love My name shall be joyful in Me. For My anger endureth but a moment, but in My favor is life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Speak to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your hearts unto Me. Rejoice greatly in your God and be joyful, for I clothe thee with the garments of salvation; I have covered thee with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels. I am in the midst of thee, and I am mighty; I will save, I will rejoice over thee with joy, I will joy over thee with singing. REJOICE EVERMORE! Amen.
ALL IS WELL AND WELL IS ALL.
