I must prophesy and proclaim what I hear in My spirit.
I heard the sweetest whisper that said, “I wish that none would perish.” It is the sweetest sound in my ear. It pulled at my heartstrings because I knew I was hearing from the heart of the Lord.
It is powerful to know that our God does not want anyone to suffer ruin or destruction. He sent His Son, Jesus, so that we might live an abundant life on earth. He says it in His Word. John 10:10 says, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” God wants you to have a full life. He desires for you to live a life that reflects His peace, glory, and power. We have to identify the enemy as the one who comes to take this away. He is an extractor of all things good.
We must remember that God is good. He created you with goodness on His mind. He desires for you to prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.
We live in the fullness of God when we recognize His heart towards us. His heart is full of love. He is love. He created a world for us to live in, breathed life into us and then restored us with His blood when we failed to follow His instructions. He never fails!
He gave so that we would be receivers of abundant life on this side of heaven and throughout eternity. Yes, He has an eternity prepared for you. It is beautiful beyond description.
He does not desire that you perish but that you live in fullness through your pursuit of Him. He desires that you experience life in glory frames, from glory to glory. Even death moves us into the greater life when we accept Him.
He is alerting us to receive and then offer others the non-perishable gift of eternal life. He wants you to chase after the things of Him and not of this world. He holds the whole world in His hands. When you get Him, you get it all.
I hear the whisper of the Lord, “I do not desire that any should perish. I long for all to taste and see that I AM good. Above all, I want to be sought after. What I hold within Me is deathless, enduring, incorruptible, permanent, unbreakable and inextinguishable.”
His love for you and His desire that you live, eternally, is a burning flame in His heart that will never go out. Amen!
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. (ESV)
John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
2 Corinthians 3:18 And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord,[a] are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.[b] For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Your Name. Amen. (Taken from Billy Graham)
