HOLY FOCUS by Glenn Jackson

 Words of Prophecy

*       If one of My children "feels" [believes the lie] that they are unworthy in My sight THEN they will "unconsciously" [although they should be conscious of it] do and say those things that cause themselves to be conformed to the image of "unworthiness" [wrong inner image inside them] rather than having a "righteousness-consciousness" - a consciousness that is fully aware at ALL times of who they truly are in Christ [in My sight] and, which, empowers them to "abide" in the faith [and love] that "accesses" My Grace continually.

        ...."Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God".... Romans 5:1-2 KJV

*       The constant exercising of faith [and the "daily" maintenance of the love-walk] leads to a continually deeper renewing of the mind.

       It is pride and fear that "fuel" the mind-set [stronghold] of "unworthiness" in one's life while it is the continual exercising of faith and love [for Me - and for all  those in their sphere of existence] that lead one [through the continual renewal of their mind by My Word, and in the power of My Spirit {Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation; Spirit of Love; Spirit of Christ etc.}] to a revelation of who they "truly" are, in Christ [and My great love for them].

*       I am an "exacting" Father. This is in NO way to be construed as something negative! Many have experienced the "counterfeit" of My Love through their own earthly fathers through a sternness, aloofness and dominating control. But truly I say to you, I am Perfect - and I am true Love personified. ALL that I do, ALL that I command, and ALL that I say - at ALL times -  is for the greatest eternal benefit of each and every one of My children - without exception!
"exacting" - making rigorous demands of accuracy to fine detail;  precise; altogether accurate; to insist upon the yielding of as a strict right or obligation; i.e. exacting obedience;

*       True love is NEVER based on performance - or the lack thereof. It is based on My love "abiding" in the hearts of My children. It is a love that is both divine and eternal - and it NEVER fails [1 Corinthians 13:8a] to accomplish the fullness of My Will and purpose.

        ...."Do not be conformed to this world [this age], [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed [changed] by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]".... Romans 12:2 The Amplified Translation

        ...."But by His [the Father's] doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption".... 1 Corinthians 1:30 NASB

        ...."For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good [righteous] works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them".... Ephesians 2:10 NASB
"unconditional"- without conditions or limitations; absolute;

        When we look at ourselves through the eyes of the old nature [and keep them there] we ALWAYS end up being "performance-driven" [in an attempt to "earn" the Father's love and approval] - which, of course, has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with divine Love - or His "expectations" [in other words, the Father's Love towards us is unconditional]. Since we are all "born" [at our natural birth]into this mode [pride] it takes not only one being "born again" [lit. born anew from above]but, also, the constant [continual] "renewing of the mind" [which is the spontaneous fruit of one giving the Word of God preeminence] until the "inner image" formed within us by the Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of Love] conforms to the image of Christ - Who, by the Father's doing, became to us righteousness, wisdom, etc. In reality, when the Father looks out upon us He sees us IN Christ and He also sees us in light of all that He created us to accomplish from before the foundations of the earth. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance for us to keep our eyes "fixed" on Him [His Word] for it is this "holy focus" that leads us into a deep and profound trust in Him - and in His Way [Will] for us.

        ...."Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, freedom]. And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit [of Love]".... 2 Corinthians 3:17-18 The Amplified Translation
