In the natural, grace periods are extended; how much MORE is God our Father extending grace upon grace to every person on earth, every tribe, people group, nation and tongue; calling every person to come to Jesus.
“Come to Me all who labor, weary, tired, heavy-laden with burdens, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble-hearted, and I will give you rest for your souls [mind, heart]” Jesus in Matthew 11:28-29
Jesus says, “You must be born again to SEE the kingdom; you must be born anew from Above by Water and Spirit to ENTER the kingdom” John 3:3-21
“This one and that one were born in her [the Bride: Christ’s one Body and one Spirit]; for the Most High Himself established her. The Lord records as He registers the peoples, ‘This one is born [anew in Christ and Christ in you]…ALL my springs are in you” Psalm 87:5-7
“For the Lamb in the midst of the Throne is our Shepherd, and He guides us to springs of living water; and God wipes the tears from our eyes [to SEE the glory of the Lord and be changed into Christ likeness from glory to glory; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit]” Revelation 7:17; 2 Cor 3:12-18
selah: pause and be present to God’s presence: the glory, the goodness, the faithfulness, truth, righteousness; the kingdom of the Son, the light, the dominion of God our Father, the authority and power of Christ Jesus, and the gifts of the Spirit sent down from the Father of lights, to make you a kind of first-fruits creature; the two become one new creature, of the new creation, of the new Covenant between the Father and His Lamb (James 1:17-18; 2 Cor 5:16-18; Revelation 21:5)
“I have made a new Covenant with My Chosen One [Christ Jesus]…Your Throne for ALL generations…Who among the heavenly beings is like the Lord?…The heavens are Thine, the earth also is Thine; the world and ALL that is in it, Thou hast founded…Righteousness and Justice are the foundation of Christ’s Throne; steadfast Love and Faithfulness go before Thee. Blessed are the people who walk in the Light of Thy Countenance, who exult in Thy Name above every name in heaven and on earth, all the day, and extol Thy Righteousness. For Thou art the glory of our strength; by Thy favor our horn is exalted. For our Shield belongs to the Lord our King…My Covenant with Jesus stands firm forever…I will not remove Him from my steadfast Love [and in Christ and Christ in you, you are never moved from God our Father’s steadfast Love]…Who can deliver your soul from the power of Sheol?…Jesus is scorned, insulted, taunted, mocked…But blessed be the Lord for ever! Amen and Amen.” Psalm 89:1-52
“Those [who reject Christ] are of one mind and give over their power to the beast; they make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those WITH HIM are called and chosen and faithful” Revelation 17:13-14
“To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For to him who has Christ, more will be given and you will have abundance; but from those who have not Christ, even what they have will be taken away. This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see…and they do not understand…’This people’s hearts have grown dull and hard, and their ears closed to hearing, and their eyes they have closed, lest they should perceive with their eyes and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and TURN for Me to heal them.’ Truly, I say to you, many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see, and do not see it, and to hear what you hear, and do not hear it” Matthew 13:11-17
“My sheep hear My Voice and they will not follow another” Jesus the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God
The kingdom of heaven is like a marriage feast, ALL are invited to come, but they make light of it, make excuses, decide to wait, and make other things more important in their life, ignore, waver, doubt, fear, arrogantly reject, deny; they do not come. God says, “Behold, I have made ready My Dinner, and everything is READY; come to the marriage feast.” When the King comes in, He sees a man without the wedding garment and says, “Bind him hand and foot, and cast him into the outer darkness; there people will weep and gnash their teeth.” For many are called, but few choose to just come to the marriage of the Lamb (Matthew 22:1-14)
When is the Grace Period up? no one knows but the Father.
The kingdom of heaven is like ten maidens who take the lamp (the Lamb of God) to meet the Bridegroom King of Glory. Five are foolish and have no oil of the Holy Spirit with them. As the Bridegroom was delayed, they fell asleep. But at midnight there was a cry, ‘Behold, the Bridegroom! Come out to meet Him! Those without the Holy Spirit oil and fire ask the wise maidens for their oil but the wise replied, “Jesus asked us to come buy from Him gold refined by fire, white wedding garments, and eyes to see the need for Holy Spirit oil and fire. “You must buy for yourself.” And while they went to buy, the Bridegroom came, and those who were READY went in with Him to the marriage feast; and the DOOR WAS SHUT. Afterwards the other maidens came also, saying, “Lord, Lord, open to us.’ But He replied, ‘Truly, I say to you, I DO NOT KNOW YOU.’ Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour that the GRACE PERIOD is gone and the OPEN DOOR to resurrected, ascended, glorified Christ Jesus is CLOSED (Matthew 25:1-13).
“Come out of her [dwelling place of demons, haunt of foul spirits, mixed wine, sexual sin, impure passion, wealth made by unrighteousness], my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues…that come in a single day…in one hour Thy judgment comes…in one hour the unrighteous’ wealth is laid waste…all nations were deceived by sorcery…in the harlot is found the blood of all those slain on the earth …Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, for His Judgments are True and Just; He has judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her fornication, and God avenges on her the blood she shed…Amen. Hallelujah! Praise our God, all you his servants, you who fear him, small and great…Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and exult and give Him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and the Bride has made herself ready” Revelation 18:4
CONQUER (Revelation 2-3, 21-22), overcome this world’s ways and beliefs, by coming to God our Father, through Jesus, by the Holy Spirit.
“The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come…take the Water of Life without price‘ ” Revelation 22:17
“Behold, I make all things new” Revelation 21:5
