I Have Not Disqualified You
Do not be afraid, child of Mine, for I am with you. I will not leave
you and I will not forsake you. And I will not throw you away or
disqualify you when you make a mistake or fall briefly into sin.
The enemy is trying to make you afraid that you have disqualified
yourself; that you have made too bad of a mistake or failed too many
times for Me to use you any longer. The enemy is trying to come at
you with condemnation and disqualification. But I have already told
you how I feel about his strategy in Romans 8:1. Child of Mine, the
blood of Jesus prevails for you and there is no condemnation from Me
to you. Do you understand what that means, child of Mine?
It means that you do not have to be so afraid of displeasing Me that you
pull away from Me in fear. Instead, when you sin or make a mistake,
run to Me and allow Me to wash you and to cleanse you. Do not listen
to the devil, for the blood of Jesus still prevails for you. I am not
a Father who condemns His children and My Son Jesus is not a judge that
condemns His own. Condemnation is reserved for those who refuse to come
to the light because they love darkness and because their hearts and
their deeds are evil.
But you, child of Mine, you have already come to the light when you
received My Son as your Lord and Savior and King. And what He has
accomplished on the cross and in His resurrection has already been
applied to you. It is not about you or anything that you do or think
or say. When you receive My Son, He is the one that breaks the
power of condemnation over you and He is the One who cleanses you
and presents you holy before Me. And He is the one who keeps you.
So when you do wrong, you do not need to be afraid to run to your
God and repent the instant you realize you are in sin -- for I say
to you that My forgiveness is not based on you and your behavior.
It is based on My Son and what He has already accomplished for you
This means that you do not have to be afraid that I have decided not
to use you in My kingdom purposes any more. Child, I still have much
for you to do. Do not be afraid that I have disqualified you, for I
have not done that. Do not listen to the accuser's lies, for I do
not disqualify My children. It is not in My nature to do so.
Do not misunderstand Me. I do not tolerate a life of sin or disobedience.
I am a loving Father who will bring correction to those of My own who
disobey Me or who rebel against Me. I will cause My spirit to convict
them and if they do not respond to that, then I will work in their
circumstances to chastise them, that they might turn from their sin and
run back to Me. I will not tolerate sin and disobedience in My own. I
will take appropriate action to turn My rebellious children back into
the path that they should walk in. But I do not disqualify them, and
I will not disqualify you. I do not turn My back on you and I do not
reject you. Even in the natural, a father may chastise a disobedient
child, but what father disowns a toddler just because it did something
worthy of correction?
I am a good father. You human father faced limitations and carried the
flaws of a fallen nature. I do not. I am able to love completely and
I am able to forgive completely. I restore My children, I do not destroy
them. So, child, do not fear that I will disqualify you because of your
mistakes. I do not do that. That type of behavior is what the accuser of
your souls does. But you do not belong to him any more and he does not
have power over you to disqualify you. His power over you was broken
when My Son rose from the dead, triumphant over Satan over the bondage
of sin and death. And His claim over you was removed when you believed
in the name of My Son and received Him as your lord and master. At that
time, you were transplanted out of the kingdom of darkness and you were
placed into My kingdom.
And at that time I gave you kingdom tasks to do with Me, that your joy
might be full and that you might have a sense of purpose and destiny.
And I will not take that away from you because you make a mistake. If
your heart is hard or rebellious before Me, then I will begin to work
in your life to chastise you and to break that rebellion and turn you
back to right relationship with Me. And I will be faithful to chastise
you as a loving father until My chastisement completes its work in you
and you once again walk in My ways and obey Me. But if your heart is
submissive and repentant before Me, then I will be pleased to forgive
and restore you without having to chastise you. Either way, I do not
Allow My Spirit and My truth to wash over you and to make this real to
you. Child of Mine, I have not disqualified you from participating with
Me in My kingdom purposes, and I will never do so.
