A Letter From Your Heavenly Father On Mercy
"Blessed are the merciful for they shall receive mercy." Matthew 5:7
My blessed children,
Do you know that I love you with an everlasting Love and that my love does not keep score? I am so rich in MERCY because of my great love for you.
Today and always, I want all of you, therefore, to come boldly unto the throne of grace, that you may obtain MERCY, and find grace to help you in the time of your need. These BE-attitudes that I have given you are undeserved and unexpected, and well...a little outrageous.
You see, My GRACE is immeasurable. My MERCY is inexhaustible and My PEACE is inexpressible. If that isn't enough to keep you, I have more for you. I have NEW MERCIES for you EVERY MORNING.
I am ready to forgive you because I am a good GOD and abundant in MERCY to all those who call upon Me. Because you are MY chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with heartfelt mercy, with kindness, humility, meekness and patience. Bear with one another; forgive whatever grievances you have against one another. Forgive as I have forgiven you. My forgiveness will keep you from evil.
My Dear one, let MERCY and truth never forsake you. Bind them around your neck. Write them on the tablet of your heart so you find favor and high esteem in the sight of God and men.
My MERCY differs from My Grace. My Grace gives to you what you don't deserve and my MERCIES, well..., I do not give to you what you do deserve.
Oh, you who are Mine, who are called by Me, imitate Me. Therefore, as dearly loved children, practice one of my most meaningful, manifested, unmeasurable attributes - MERCY.
Who is a God like ME, pardoning your iniquity and overlooking transgressions for the remnant of MY heritage? I cannot retain my anger forever, because, you see my child, I delight in MERCY. Now go and learn what this means: I desire MERCY, not sacrifice. For I have not come to call the righteous but sinners.
My apostle Paul was shown mercy because he acted in ignorance and unbelief. Your salvation is the act of MY mercies, and because of My Son, Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead, great MERCY has given you a new birth into a living hope, as my apostle Peter found out!
Now that you have ears to hear and eyes to see what My Spirit will have you do, I want you to fall in love with MERCY. My child, I have also shown you to seek justice, love MERCY and to walk humbly with your God. I want you to demonstrate Mercy and compassion to one another. I want you to respond to Mercy as the "Good Samaritan" did. Help one another, love one another as I have loved you.
Put Mercy on every day. Clothe yourselves in and with compassion. Minister to others with MERCY. The MERCY you have received has equipped you for ministry. Go out and minister to others and remember - always default to MERCY when you are representing ME. My Mercy always, always, always triumphs over judgement. I AM WHO I AM. I AM A MERCIFUL GOD.
Loved one, because the blood was sprinkled for you on the MERCY seat so I could meet with you there, My Son, Jesus, has now poured out His pure, sacrificial blood for you, once and for all to make atonement for your sin and salvation. My kind MERCY poured out for you in the face of unkindness. It's my kindness that leads to your repentance so we could have a right relationship with one another. I am your GOD who is so rich in MERCY, wisdom, knowledge and blessings, ready to give freely, because of my great love for you.
Remember: FAITH plus LOVE equals MERCY
I FORGIVE YOU FOREVER.
I HAVE CALLED YOU BY NAME AND YOU ARE MINE FOREVER.
MY GRACE AND MERCY ARE FOREVER.
LOVE IS THE GREATEST and FOREVER.
I LOVE you, My child,
Your Heavenly Father
