"I Set You Free"

"I am the One who rescues you from your prostitution!
I am the One who sets you free!
You cannot set yourselves free by working harder!

"You have no power to leave your bondage,
and you have no other 'way'
but to let Me do the work for you.

"Come, let Me do the work for you.
Rest in Me and trust in My hand.
I will free you from your captivity."

I am your root, and I am mighty to save.
I am He who overcame the world,
and I am He who lives within you.
I am He who overcomes the world
and who overcomes the evil one in you.
Because I overcame, you also will overcome.
I am He who began a good work in you,
and I am He who is faithful to finish it.
Trust in Me more than in your unchangeableness."

"The Son's Writing"

"The names of My children are in the book of life,
not because they understand how to obtain My approval,
but because My Son is the One in whom I am well pleased.

"My children, put your confidence in My Son!
Rest in His righteousness.
Rest in His righteous acts and in His works on your behalf.
Let Me credit His deeds as your deeds,
for only His righteous works can cover your nakedness.
There is no other sure covering than the blood of My Son.

"Do not look to your own deeds to keep your name in the book of life,
for as your deeds could not write your name in the book of life,
neither can your deeds keep your name written there.

"My Son has engraved your name on His hands;
do not leave His hands by trusting your deeds.
Do not look to the book of deeds, but to the book of life—
My Son is your life!"

"Be still and know that I have redeemed you!
I have accomplished your sanctification on the Cross.

"Rest in what I have done for you, not in yourself.
When you need relief from the waves, look to Me."

"Open to Me!"

"My children,

I know you believe that you can see,
and that you can see more 'light'
than others who call on My name.

Come, let Me touch your eyes, My children,
for you have not seen as clearly
as you have been told.

Come, ask Me to open your eyes.
Ask Me to remove any veil you may have.
Ask Me to lead you into all truth.
Ask Me to be the light of your world.

Ask Me to reveal to you
the glory of the new covenant."

"Steadfast Love"

"I am the One who calls you to come to Me
with your needs, your griefs, your hopes and your cares.
I know that you worry I will not hear you
if you don't pray 'correctly' or long enough
or with enough feeling in your heart.
My child, I know you want to stay focused on Me
and bring your needs to Me without being distracted.

"I want you to know that I always hear you, My child!
I hear you even before you call!
I know you want to give Me your everything,
but the more you try, the more you see how weak you are.

"Do not be ashamed, My child,
for I gave My everything because I knew you couldn't!
I am not upset or disappointed that you have been unable
to attain perfection in prayer as you think I want you to.
Instead, I am overjoyed and delighted in you, My child,
and I rejoice in any attempt you make to pray.

"I just want to be with you, My child.
When you come to Me in prayer,
I want you to rest in My love for you
and to know that I have already heard you
and am already caring for your needs.
I am strong in your weakness!"

"My Love For You"

"My precious child,
do you know how overjoyed I am about you?
Do you know what it means to Me
having you as My child?

"I rejoice!
I sing songs of joy about you!
I am overcome as with wine!
And when you look at Me with your love,
I can't bear it and turn My eyes away!

"I love you not because you
are being more righteous than others,
but rather because you are precious to Me.
In fact, you are indeed just a child,
and you have no more knowledge or righteousness
than any others who claim to be My only children.
I love you even though you have very little knowledge of Me.

"My children in Adventism,
I love you dearly not because you are Adventists,
but rather in spite of being Adventists!
My love for you is secured by
knowledge greater than what you know,
and by obedience you will never be able to render.
My love for you is secured by My obedience
and by My knowledge—by My righteousness.
Your righteousness, your obedience and your doctrines
do not make Me love you any more than I love any of My children;
instead they cause you to misunderstand Me and My love.

"My child, forget your pride
and your spiritual house—
for I am enthralled with you!
Honor your Savior alone!"

"Don't Rest in Shadows!"

"Awake, My beloved!
The time has come for you
to come out of the slumber of the law!
The time has come for you
to put on My righteousness alone.

"I will give you light,
but if you remain entombed
by the righteousness of the ministry of death,
you will not be able to see My light in the darkness.

"If your knowledge is from discerning
according to the tablets of the old covenant,
My light will be veiled to you and you will not see
that only the power of My Spirit
can keep you from being deceived.

"I am the Light—awake, My beloved!
Come forth from the shadows!
Arise from the ministry of death,
and I will be your light!"

"Arise from the law,
and I will give you light!"

"Clinging to Rags"

"My children! My children!
Why are you afraid of facing the truth about your errors?
Why are you clinging to dead doctrines?

"I have told you that your safety is in Me,
not in your own perfection.
I am your righteousness—
you do not need to be afraid of your unrighteousness!

"But you are afraid to let go of
doctrines created by your own hands,
and so you cannot see and rest in My hand.
As long as you cling to your rags
instead of resting in My hand and in My word,
you will remain slaves to the fear
of your doctrines being wrong,
and afraid to admit the truth about yourselves.

"Let go of your fear of being mistaken!
Look and behold the ocean of My love for you!"

"Don't Hide!"

"My children in Adventism,

"You are beautiful,
not because of how much you know
nor because of how 'right' you are,
but simply because I made you beautiful.

"I love you,
not because you are more special than others,
but because I am love.

"Why have you been working so hard
to prove you are correct and are special?
Why are you so afraid
of recognizing how poor, blind and naked you are?

"Do not be ashamed of your wrongness!
Do not be afraid to recognize and admit your unrighteousness.
Do not fear the existence of mistakes in your past
and errors in your beliefs.

Let Me see your face!
I will wash you and make you radiant!"

"Not Adding Up To the Son"

"Not Adding Up To the Son"

"My children, you don't know that I love you whether you are right or wrong!
You are trying to convince yourselves and prove to others that I am with you,
adding up the numbers of your church members around the world,
the size of your education system and enterprises,
and the 'richness' of your church's 'heritage' and history.

"Don't you know that you do not need all of these things?
I have given you all that you will ever need on the Cross in My Son!
You cannot clothe yourselves by measuring your accomplishments!
No amount of measurement will 'prove' that I am with you
except for the Cross of My Son, Jesus Christ.

"Come into the light, My children in Adventism! Do not be afraid!
Yes, many of your 'calculations' will be exposed by the light of the gospel,
revealing the nakedness your forefathers tried to cover with new doctrines.
But if you let go of your 'proofs' at the foot of the Cross,
you will find yourselves clothed by My righteousness instead.
If you come out of the darkness, I will wrap you in the warmth of My light:
the light of the knowledge of salvation in My Son alone."

or doing the 'right' things.

"I want you.
I want you to be free to be yourself.
I want you because I love you.

"Come rest in Me alone,
for your house has not been a place of rest.
But you will be safe in Me:
I am your refuge,
and I will be your new home.

"Don't be afraid to come to Me.
You have been told that you were running away from Me
if you did not obey 'the church' and its teachings;
and if you questioned your spiritual parents,
you were told to stop, to conform, and just be good little boys and girls.
You were taught that you were orphans without their parenting,
but I tell you that you are Mine.

You are members of My house.
You are My children forever."

Then they asked him,
“What must we do to do the works God requires?”
Jesus answered,
“The work of God is this:
to believe in the One He has sent.”

- John 6:28-29

"I am calling you to the greatest work of all—
My work, which has already been finished for you!
I am calling you to rest from your works
and join Me in My Sabbath—today
the rest that I purchased for you on the Cross.
I am calling you to the work of Eden,
to a place of rest you have not known in your house.

"In Me, as in Eden, you are a new creation,
for I have taken the curse:
You took the fruit from the Tree,
but I was hung on a tree in your place,
becoming a a curse for you so that you might be free.

"You cannot understand the works I have prepared for you
until you cease from attempting to enter My rest by keeping the Law.
Just as you cannot imagine the 'work' of Eden before sin and the curse of toil,
neither can you envision the works I have prepared for you
until you rest from the Law.

Etner My rest by faith alone!
Come into Eden in Me!"

"I want you to know My law.
I want you to know My Spirit.
I want you to know My eternal covenant.

"I am so much bigger than you have understood,
because you have defined My law by the Ten Words of the old covenant
instead of by the love I gave you on the Cross
and commanded you to give one another.

"Cease your striving and your struggle to fit Me into the Ten Commandments!
Stop trying to define My character by the tablets of the old covenant!
Let Me be who I really am, and I will give you rest!"

"Walking In Sabbath-Rest"

"I am the good Shepherd! I lead My children without fear,
not with frowns, but with My love and peace.
My sheep rest in Me because I give them salvation—
no one can snatch them out of My hand!
I bring My children a sure hope that does not disappoint,
for in Me they have already crossed from death to life
and will not come into judgment.
My children have laid down their works, their burdens,
and walk with Me daily in Sabbath-rest
as My children went through the fields in the year of Jubilee.

"You cannot follow Me until you first rest in Me.
If you try to mimic My works and My ways,
you will find yourselves lost in the wilderness, worn out with weariness.
If you do not rest from your works in Me,
the 'yoke' that you pick up will not be My yoke,
for My yoke begins and ends in My rest.

"Come, rest in Me! Lay down your works!
My yoke is not what you think it is!
Learn all over again, from the beginning.
Rest in Me, and I will lead you in paths of peace,
in un-interrupted Sabbath-rest for your soul."

"I know how much you long to have rest and to hear My voice,
but the only voice you hear reprimands you for not being better
and for not having a 'Christlike'-enough character.

"That is not My voice! I am He who saves you!
I know you can't see Me, but I want you to trust Me:
I never asked you to measure yourself against Me.

"Look up! Your expectations are not My expectations!
I am not who your church has told you I am,
and I do not expect what they told you I expect.

"Look in faith to Me, and I will set you free.
In your eyes you can only see darkness,
but listen to My Word and look through My eyes instead!"

How delightful is your love...!
How much more pleasing is your love than wine!"

"I feel their pain! I feel their pain!
I feel their bondage! I feel them longing to reach Me but unable to!
I fell the pain of their striving, the weight of self-condemnation
for not succeding, and the pressure of expectation!
I feel the wound beneath their need to rationalize,
their need to invent excuses and gloss over problems
because they are too afraid of losing everything!

"Who will intercede for My children in Adventism?
Who will look past their defenses to the hurting children inside?
Who will reach out and love them in their captivity?
Who will give them grace instead of battle?
Who will go for Me, and whom shall I send?"

“Don’t ever allow disappointment in your behavior to separate you from Me. I created you for fellowship, not behavior. Just come to Me as you are. Don’t worry about your standing with Me. My Son took care of all those issues. Now we can just fellowship and enjoy one another.

“You are no longer under condemnation—you are justified. You are a new creation in My eyes. I only see what My Word says about you... and you are what My Word says. Speak My Word and it will be released to work and bring forth fruit. Stay close to Me.”

I hear voices of elders telling people to be silent and not speak

Until you rest in Jesus you will not understand

Rest in the work He fully accomplished for you

Rest from striving to clean up your mess,
