THE FATHER IS FAITHFUL TO FINISH THE PERFECT WORK THAT HE HAS BEGUN IN EACH OF US

...."If you keep My commandments [if you continue to obey My instructions], you will abide in My love and live on in it, just as I have obeyed My Father's commandments and live on in His love. I have told you these things, that My joy and delight may be in

In this season, the Father is bringing all things into perfect positioning for all those who
are truly seeking Him to enter into the fullness of their precious destiny in Christ. This is the spontaneous fruit of His promise to us that HE is faithful to finish [complete] the perfect work that HE has begun in each of us. It is very important that we
realize that HE started the work in us and HE will finish it - and, when all is said and done, it will be seen clearly that HE was there ALL ALONG in our lives in the time in between.
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that, in this most critical and glorious hour, You moving with great Power to establish Your people in their true Kingdom-position and
destiny, in Christ [both individually and corporately], And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
