Vision: Our Love Gift, Our Life Gift

Our Love Gift, Our Life Gift

  

I saw a vision of the Saints standing before the Father and holding out their hands. And in their hands was what looked like blood. In their hands was the total of their life sacrifices. And the Father was receiving their gifts with joy in His eyes and deep love in His heart. Father was overjoyed to receive the sacrifices of the Saints.

 

Jesus entire life walk on this earth was an example for us to follow. Everything that He did was as an example for us to follow. We are to copy Him, to be like Him, to do like Him, to live like Him and to die like Him.

Jesus’ ultimate act was the sacrifice of His own life. How much more then should we also sacrifice our whole life for the purpose of the Kingdom of God? Just as Jesus was our example, so then we are to follow in His footsteps up to and including our own death and our own life sacrifice on behalf of the Kingdom.

All that Jesus did on earth is well documented in the four Gospels. And we have good words that show us how to be Christlike. We have a clear understanding all the way to the point of the cross.

But then Jesus did even more than that! On the day he was taken up to return back to Heaven, Jesus carried with Him the overall result of His actions. Jesus carried to the Father His blood sacrifice. He carried in His hands His own blood and then presented it before the Father as the perfect and most pleasing sacrifice once for all time for all mankind. All that Jesus did on earth lead up to this last final act. It was required before the Holy Spirit could be poured out. It was why Jesus told the Apostles to wait for the Holy Spirit! The offering must first be laid before the Father!

When Jesus returned to the Father, His work of establishing and then providing salvation grace was complete. But it was not complete until He presented before the Father His own shed blood. It was Jesus single most wonderful and very greatest gift of all. His own shed blood… His life sacrifice. It was the reason why He came. It was the reason why He lived. He lived to die so that He could bring this blood sacrifice to the Father. All of His life on earth lead up to this one moment in time in which Jesus could present the blood Father in order to see mankind set free.

Here on earth are we… saints… sons and daughters of the Most High God. Upon our confession and acceptance of Jesus Christ as our Savior, we were saved. But Jesus died for more than just this. He died so that we could have fullness in this life; so that we would be equipped with the power of the Holy Spirit to do great and mighty things… so that we would be equipped to walk just as Jesus walked and so that we could reap a harvest!

Our greatest gift, our greatest joy will not happen until the day we return to Heaven to be with the Father. On that day, just as it was on the day that Jesus return to the Father, just as it was when Jesus presented His life sacrifice before the Father, so then shall we also present our life sacrifices before the Father. Jesus’ sacrifice was the greatest of all, His very own blood, His very own life. What then shall we have in hand when we go to the Father? In what ways did we sacrifice ourselves on earth for His behalf?

Vision: Saints and the Blood Gift

I saw a vision of the Saints standing before the Father and holding out their hands. And in their hands was what looked like blood. In their hands was the total of their life sacrifices. And the Father was receiving their gifts with joy in His eyes and deep love in His heart. Father was overjoyed to receive the sacrifices of the Saints.

This is our goal in life. Our goal in life is not to just get along and survive until the day that we go home to be in Heaven with Father. Our goal in this earthly life is to so completely die to ourselves, and to sacrifice ourselves for the lost. And with every sacrifice we make there accumulates in our hands a blood offering that we shall one day present before the Father. This is what we are living for; that we might have a gift to give to our Father, and a reward to give to our King of Kings for his suffering.

Time now to wait on the Holy Spirit, receive His love and revelations, choose confession repentance and forgiveness, be healed up and delivered of all that besets us and then go forth in sacrificial love and give. Time for us to take on the very nature of Christ, and to willfully sacrifice. The Harvest is ripe in all the world!
