"And there I will meet with you,
and I will speak with you from above
the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim
which are on the ark of the Testimony, about
everything which I will give you in commandment
to the children of Israel."
One day I shared my heart and my need with Him saying, "Father, I need to know Your love for me, REALLY know Your love. I love You with all my heart, with all my mind and with all my soul, but I really need to know YOUR love for me. Reveal Your love to me, Father I pray, in a deeper and fresher way."
As I spoke these words the Father looked at me with His gentle eyes, and then He took my hand and led me back into a small enclosed room where the mercy seat was located. It was a holy place. It was an intimate place, a place hidden away from the busyness of the banquet room of His celebration. And as we stood there together looking at the mercy seat, He stepped on one side of it as I stood on the other.....and then He held both His hands out and down toward the mercy seat and He said, "This is My love for you. My Son's blood lays upon this seat as a sign and testament of My love for you. His blood was poured out for you because of MY LOVE for you. He demonstrated My love for you with His very life. My love for you flows over this mercy seat and into your life through the Spirit of My Son Jesus that lives IN you and by His blood that runs through your very veins. My daughter, because of what Jesus did for Me and for you so that you would be reunited back into right relationship with Me and so that we could have this personal and intimate relationship together, and because you have received this gift by faith, it's no longer you that's living anymore, but it's My Son Jesus that's living in you and through you. And because of His blood that was poured out for you, you now have access into all of My kingdom, into all My power and riches. Now everything that is Mine is yours. I hold nothing back from you, but I give you access to all of My kingdom. It's your inheritance. It's yours for the receiving whenever you reach for it. And because of Jesus My power, My wisdom, My favor, and My divine health and wealth is at your very disposal. There is no greater way that I can show and express My love to you than to show and remind you of what it took to have this place together. Jesus gave His life....and I gave My Son. This mercy seat is precious to Me. It's a constant and eternal reminder to Me of the price that was paid so that we could be together as one. My heart longs for all My family to know this love. Many times, like yourself, they need to be reminded and brought back to this place. When you see and feel the testimony of My love for you through this blood poured out on this mercy seat for you, it is beyond even My words. My heart of love lies upon this altar crying out to you and to My family to receive and come back to Me. It's the longing of My heart. So my daughter....stay here awhile and just look upon this expression of My love, and just let the Holy Spirit reveal this love to you in a deeper and fresher way. Feel the depth of My love for you as you stay here, and just ponder it awhile. Know I love you as no one else can. You are My precious possession, My pearl of great price, My treasure, the apple of My eye, and I love you with an everlasting love."
