I saw a house filled to overflowing with WHITE STONES. Not just one but thousands! They were even spilling out into the yard. And so I hear this for you, His Beloved Bride:
“The enemy has attempted to cast aspersions upon you, Beloved. I have seen this and I tell you, My Child, that I will not let these false accusations stand against you.
Satan wants to convince you that his “jury” has cast a black stone against you, but My Dear Child, I have declared you INNOCENT of all charges. Your righteousness is of Me.
The handwriting that stood against you has been NAILED to the Cross, to be remembered no more. You wear MY Robe of Righteousness, clean and white.
My Grace is sufficient for you, Dear One. You are justified and have been made upright and in right standing with Me by the Blood of the Lamb. The enemy is the accuser of the brethren.
I came to bring you LIFE, abundant and overflowing with My Goodness. Be of good cheer, Little One. You are NOT forsaken. You carry My Name and authority and I delight in you, My Bride.
You are no longer condemned, My Love, but you are my beautiful, brilliant one shining in this dark world.”
CAST ASPERSIONS: to criticize someone or someone’s character; to make a rude and insulting remark. “Aspersions” is an unusual word whose main meaning is “false or misleading accusations; to make damaging or spiteful remarks.”
“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it OVERFLOWS),” John 10:10.
“He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him,” 2 Corinthians 5:21.
“He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches; To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a WHITE STONE, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knows saving he that receives it,” Revelation 2:17.
“White” – Leukos:
1. light, bright, brilliant,
2. brilliant from whiteness, (dazzling) white,
3. of the garments of angels, and of those exalted to the splendor of the heavenly state,
4. of white garments as the sign of innocence and purity of the soul
“Stone” – psephos
1. a small worn smooth stone, a pebble
2. a vote; in the ancient courts of justice the accused were condemned by black pebbles and the acquitted by white ones.
“And the Gentiles shall see your righteousness, and all kings your glory: and you shall be called by a NEW NAME, which the mouth of the LORD shall name,” Isaiah 62:2.
“new” – chadash – new, new thing, fresh, repaired, renewed, same root as holy
“name” – nakav – to pierce, perforate, bore, appoint
“You shall no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall your land any more be termed Desolate: but you shall be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah: for the LORD delights in you, and your land shall be married. and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you,” Isaiah 62:4-5.
A bride takes on the name of her husband.
Hephzi-bah – “my delight is in her”
Beulah – to marry, rule over, possess, own, be married
At the moment of our marriage to our spiritual Bridegroom, we, as the Bride of Christ, find ourselves with a new name, and our bridegroom rejoices over us. The new name will indicate that we are holy, and have been pierced, as our Bridegroom was pierced.
Therefore, whatever humble or rejected name she had before is replaced with the name and authority of her Husband’s name.
