“Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”
Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I AM in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. Believe Me that I AM in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves,”John 14:8-11, NKJV.
“My child, I have taught you many times about how I AM working on your inner man to prepare you for the work ahead.
I have likened my work to that of a potter who works the clay on his wheel into a vessel which he creates for a specific purpose.
I AM pleased at the progress we are making as we do this internal work together.
As you yield more to My hand — the working of My Spirit and the Word in you — I AM able to remove those things which have hindered your spiritual growth.
The mind is a great battlefield where the enemy and the influences of this fallen world have set up strongholds. These strongholds are areas that resist and fight My Spirit.
These strongholds are areas of rebellion that exalt themselves above Me as Lord, My teachings, and My plans for your life.
But as you yield to My touch (I AM the Good Potter) these strongholds are being destroyed and your heart is becoming more and more sensitive to My voice, My touch, and My ways.
I have warned about these strongholds for they are built up over the years especially before you knew Me.
A few of them are: pride, fear, envy, strife, rejection, anger, and many others too numerous to list. However, My work is producing great results.
Your vessel (all that you are and ever will be) is being transformed from heavy (fleshy, self-centered) material to that of clear glass. You are becoming a transparent vessel.
This pleases Me greatly. You see that I desire you to be conformed to My image so the world will know that I AM in you and that I AM doing My work through you.
When Philip asked Me to show him the Father, I explained to him that I AM a transparent vessel. When he looked at Me, he was seeing the Father.
This is where I AM taking you and everyone who will submit to the internal work that I wish to do in them.
I have prayed for this unity — intimacy divine — before I went to the Cross. My prayer is still pulling on the resources of Heaven to accomplish this in these last days.
I will work through My transparent vessels to do the Kingdom’s greater works. The harvest is ripening very quickly. The darkness is encroaching in every nation and the people are looking for a remedy.
I AM the Remedy. You are the vessels who will bring the Remedy to the world.
Let Patience keep you as we go through the finishing process. Your vessel is beautiful. I do excellent work! Stay in My hands.
Let My peace cover you. Let My joy strengthen you. Partake of the blessings of My table and enjoy being My vessel of honor. All is well. Shalom.”
“We are human, but we don’t wage war as humans do. We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments. We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ,”2 Corinthians 10:3-5, NLT.
