MYGREATEST DESIRE - A Message from Jesus to Pastor Leroy Hulvey
I have loved you with an everlasting love. Before the mountains were brought forth, the azure blue sky, sparkling streams and lush green valleys, I made plans for you. You are my special child, my unique creation. I made no one else exactly like you.
Before I formed you in your mother's womb, I knew you and approved you (Jeremiah 1:5). Your frame was not hidden from me. In my Book, all of the days of your life were written before they ever took shape (Psalm 139:13-17). You are always on my mind. My thoughts are ever toward you. As no sparrow falls to the ground without my noticing it, so everything you do is under my watchful care (Matthew 10:29-31).
I see you at work, at play, when you sit down, when you rise up. My angels watch over you when you are deep in slumber. The very hairs of your head I number each day. You are the apple of my eye. I have given you gifts and talents unlike anyone else. Use them for my glory and other people's good.
Satan has told you that I don't love you, that you are forgotten. Can a mother forget her sucking child? Would she not have compassion on the son or daughter of her womb? Yes, some do forget, but I will never forget you. Behold, I have engraved a picture of you on the palms of my hands (Isaiah 49:14-16). It hurts me when you ignore me and fail to spend time with me each day. I look forward to it so much that I might strengthen you for each day's tests and trials.
I knew the enemy would come to take you away from me through the deceitfulness of sin, false teaching, and the persuasion of evil men. Do not listen to them! I am the Son of God, begotten in the bosom of the Father. I am the only Way to heaven, the only One that loved you enough to pay the price for your sins. I am the only One that COULD pay the price for your sins because I am the Son of Man as well as the Son of God.
The decision you make concerning me will determine your eternal destiny.
As my Word says, I suffered greatly for you (Isaiah 53) but it was worth it. Why? MY GREATEST DESIRE is that you may know my love and walk in it daily; that you may live with me forever and see my glory. Your mansion that I designed just for you awaits your coming. Your soul is worth more to me than all the treasure and kingdoms of the world. That is why I went to such lengths to save you. No one else can do what I have called you to do.
To defeat death, I had to take on death, that through death I might destroy him that had the power of death, the devil. By doing this I delivered you from the fear of death that was enslaving you to a lifetime of bondage (Hebrews 2:14-18). My Father explained to me before the foundation of the world that His prize creation...man-made in God's own image, would turn his back upon his Maker. That I must do what the first Adam failed to do - obey God in all things. In the fullness of time, I came to earth and did only what my Father told me to do. I said only what my Father told me to say. He prepared me a Body that would be given as the once-for-all sacrifice for the whole world (Hebrews 10:5). "That
whosoever believes in me should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16)."
The Lord opened my ear and I was not rebellious or turned backward. I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to those who plucked out my beard. I hid not my face from shame and spitting (Isaiah 50:5-6). I was poured out like water, and all my bones were out of joint.
My heart was like wax. My strength dried up like a fragment of clay pottery. With thirst, my tongue cleaved to my jaws. I could count all my bones as the evildoers gazed at me. They pierced my hands and my feet. They cast lots for my garments (Psalm 22). I died that you might live. My life's blood was poured out that you might have eternal life...that you might know the great love that I have for you.
My soul descended into the lower parts of the earth...into hell itself (Ephesians 4:9). I suffered the pains of death, separation from God, so that you would not have to go through such a terrible thing. How horrible it was but I did it for you. I knew that my Father would not leave my soul in hell, neither would He allow His Holy One to see corruption (Acts 2:27). Father raised me up as foretold by David. My resurrection was confirmed by many witnesses over a 40-day period (Acts 1:3). I ascended into heaven and am seated as the Right Hand of the Father, exalted as Lord and Christ.
I ever live to pray for you daily.
I am coming soon (Revelation 22:20) to set up my earthly Kingdom. I want you to reign with me forever. Repent of your sins...turn from them and to me. Invite my Spirit into your life and confess me as Lord and Saviour (Romans 10:9-10). Get baptised (Mark 16:16) and go weekly to a Bible-believing church (Hebrews 10:25). I do not want to have to tell you one day, "Be gone from Me, you cursed, into eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels"(Matthew 25:41), but "Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world"
