I’ll go the distance
“By this shall all men know that you are My disciples—by your love; a love that is limitless, that it doesn’t put the conditions of what it will and will not do in your life of service. There are those who go part of the way, and I am very pleased, for giving part was all they could do. So in a way it was “their all”, they didn’t see how much more they could give. So I do richly reward them, for they gave Me all they could, and it cost them greatly.
But there are those who don’t say, “How much? What will it take? And will I get compensation for this?” They simply say, “I’ll go the distance.” They are given no map, for that would weary them, just to look at the terrain they’ll need to cross. They are given no itinerary of what happens next and next, far into the future for the remainder of the trip. They just take My hand and say, “I’ll go with you, Jesus, without condition, to the end.”
And so we walk one step at a time. I’m enjoying it every second. My heart is not distracted with the pain it will feel when they stop and stay, “that’s enough”, and choose to walk with Me no more. I can rest in peace that they will stay with Me to the bitter end, and so am I with them.
Look at my beloved first apostles. Did they go part way and then quit, and surrender to the evil that was ravaging the faith of people? No. They had seen and known that I finished My course and did not give up, and they were determined to finish for Me, as I had done for them; no matter how their personal game of life ended. Will you do that for Me? I did it for you. I need you to be like Me on this Earth, giving your life to proclaim liberty and preach the message of the Gospel. If you are faithful to the end, whatever your end ends up being, then you are helping to bring in the harvest of souls. I need you there, to hold a place, a space so that through you My spirit can move and work and live and breathe, in a living soul. It’s going to mean death to your own ideas of what your life ought to look like. It’s going to take new bends and twists and turns, and go all kinds of places all over the game board. But if you aren’t willing to move in all the places that I need to move you, My little piece, the little piece of Me that you are on Earth, then chances are you’ll get knocked off the game board before your time.
Love of the bride
So stay yielded and pick up when I say to; over to the right, when I say so; hold back and wait a bit to get more instructions, and so on. Those who “follow the Lamb withersoever He goeth” now, will surely get the greenest pastures in the World to Come. And they and I will greatly rejoice.
Time waits for no man; but I do. I am waiting for repentance of the lost. Yet there will come time, for the good of the others who have chosen My ways, when I say “that is enough”. And I roll back the curtain of Heaven and you get to see the cloud of witnesses that have been watching and helping the show. The play is done. The first act is over, its break time, time for a wedding feast, before the show finishes up, and you are the leading players of the next part of the play.
It’s going to end so beautifully. My Children in Heaven are watching it, watching the play of Earth, are weeping, laughing, and on the edge of their seats. This is one big movie, and you get to be the actors in it. Then the awards are passed out to those who did well. And then comes the best part, the really good ending. Boy! Will the rejoicing rock the Heavens when shouts go forth for the best end of all. It is something worth waiting for, even dying for.
Those who have a role in the first part of the play, and their role is to die for their Lord and Savior, then can sit in the audience and watch as it goes on. But when I need back up help, I might call on them to play supportive roles as coaches to the players, for they know both—what it is like to be on stage, and they have seen some of the glories that are given to the faithful ones in the realm of Glory. So they can have full faith and give good coaching to those still playing their part, living out God’s script and program.” (End of message from Jesus.)
The Key is Love for Jesus
Nothing you do for yourself will last, use the keys of dedication to make your work
for Me last forever.
