“Burning in the Cave of Wonders”
The LORD spoke this phrase, and then nothing, so I looked it up online and found it’s the name of a cave in the movie ‘Aladdin‘ where Aladdin finds the Magic Lamp, and has to fight an evil figure to get it and him out of the cave.
And also there is such a place named in Texas — of an actual cave!
Tonight, August 8, 2022, I sensed He wanted to speak, and waiting heard…
“Many of those who are My Bridal Company, are in a place of burning right now.
The Spirit of Burning is doing a work in bringing them to death to self, and throwing off the parts of ‘the old man’ still in their hearts, from years of pain that have not been fully restored.
I tenderly watch over those who are Mine. They are not forsaken or forgotten by Me. Many do not yet know how not to strive.
They are still bound by perfectionism from childhood, and habits in adulthood, never dealt with to a performance mentality.
Many are still competing, because of a past life of having to do so to survive, or to get ahead in the world they thought, because they didn’t know how to depend enough on Me.
Many have not been Loved unconditionally in their lives, which only added to the pain of rejection, driving them in anxiety and performance.
But now they will come to know the perfection of My Love and Kindness, and I will overwhelm them with My manifest Love, that they might believe The Truth of what they know.
I said through Paul, that if you know the fullness of the length, breadth, width and depth of My Love, that then you could be filled with the Fullness of Me.
Do you understand, that this Love of Mine is to be sought after, greater than all the things of this world, or anything in The Church?
I said Love is the greatest. Love is the greatest weapon you have in My Arsenal.
I also said to seek after Prophecy. Do you understand why? It’s because Prophecy, is part of understanding My Love for you!
If you can hear My Voice speaking to you, or experience Dreams and Visions that demonstrate My Love for you, then you will be filled even more with that Understanding and Power of My Love, needed to fully comprehend My Love.
You will experience it for yourselves, enough to share it with others who need it too!
The Gifts are to be shared, that others may also experience My Love for them.
If someone in this life on earth tells you they love you, but you don’t feel that love, or experience it, then there will be a deficit in you soul. You will be incomplete in your knowledge of My Love for you.
So it’s really important for others to experience My Love through you also, so that they know what it feels like to be Loved.
When your experience is ‘conditional love’, only given if you’re good enough in their eyes, or when it’s convenient for them, then your need is greater to be filled.
So everyone is on a different scale of knowing My Love, depending on where they are in Growth and Healing in Me, and experience of love from others.
The Spirit of Burning comes to fulfill what has not been completed in burning off sin, old habits, and strongholds, and demonic holds on your soul from generations, or lack of healing in The Church.
So embrace this experience beloveds, for I AM putting the finishing touches on My Bride, and as it is poured out like a flood of Fiery Love, you will be changed in a moment of time and transformed by My Glory to reflect My Light to the world around you, as never before.
Don’t resent The Cave I have had you in at the moment, but submit to the Cleansing Fire of My Love.
Come before Me and receive the fullness of what I have. Don’t pull away from Me too quickly, but allow Me to have all of you.
Ask to be consumed by My Holy Spirit, for this is a take over, not just a make over, and all things will become New.
I have New Wonders to pour out on you! New Revelation that you’ve not experienced before.
New Healing and Miracle giftings that will destroy the strongholds on others, in a moment.
New levels of Mercy and My Compassion, that will destroy the enemy’s strangleholds through My Love expressed and shown.
Chains of oppression and addictions that people have struggled with, will be broken in a moment of time.
Astounding Miracles will be the normal for My People, called by My Name!
It is I Who will make My Brie pure and unashamed! Not through striving — but through My Presence!
Miracles in controlling the weather — just as in Jesus’ time on earth — can be done now, but will be even more in this hour. Rebuking pollution or radiation from the air over cities or in water, for example.
So come and Worship Me in the beauty of Holiness, for I have made you Holy by My Blood shed for you, that you could Repent and walk unashamed and full of Glory, if you will just come to Me.
My Grace is My Power poured out to bring this change.
It’s My Presence that makes you whole.
As you experience this change, you will receive your commissioning orders and strategies to accomplish My Will for you.
So there is no need for anxiety or striving and worry. I AM coming in Glory, and for some it will be glorious, and for some it will be frightening, and for some it will be deadly — because they have pretended to be in Me, but worshipping the enemy.
My Glory is not a play toy, or for amusement. I AM Holy!“
The Renewal of Zion
“In that day the Branch of The LORD shall be beautiful and glorious; and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and appealing for those of Israel who have escaped. And it shall come to pass that he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy — everyone who is recorded among the living in Jerusalem. When The LORD has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and purged the blood of Jerusalem from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and by the spirit of burning, then The LORD will create above every dwelling place of Mount Zion, and above her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night. For over all the glory there will be a covering. And there will be a tabernacle for shade in the daytime from the heat, for a place of refuge, and for a shelter from storm and rain.” Isaiah 4:2-6.
“The Cave of Elijah is a grotto on Mount Carmel, in Haifa, Israel, associated with Biblical prophet Elijah. According to tradition, Elijah is believed to have prayed at a grotto before challenging the priests of Baal on Mount Carmel (1 Kings 18), and to have hidden in either the same or in another nearby grotto from the wrath of Jezebel (1 Kings 19:1–3).
Two grottoes on Mount Carmel, in Haifa, have been historically referred to as “the Cave of Elijah”. A “Cave of Elijah” is located on Haifa’s Allenby Road, on Mount Carmel, approximately 40 m above sea level. For centuries, it has been a pilgrimage destination for Jewish, Christians, Muslims and the Druze. The Cave of Elijah in Allenby Road is divided into twos sections for praying, one for men and one for women; the cave is behind a velvet curtain. The Cave is also known as el-Khader in Arabic. The Druze regard it as holy, and many among them identify Elijah as “el-Khidr”, the green prophet who symbolizes water and life.
The cave has been considered by some to be a place for miracle. Sick people are said to be brought to the Cave in hope that they will be cured.
A second grotto, also associated with Elijah, is located nearby, under the altar of the main church of the Stella Maris Monastery, also on Mount Carmel.” (© Wikipedia – Cave of Elijah)
“Then he came there to a cave and lodged there; and behold, the word of The LORD came to him, and He said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”” 1 Kings 19:9 NAS.
“So David departed from there and escaped to the cave of Adullam; and when his brother and all his father’s household heard of it, they went down there to him. Everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented gathered to him; and he became captain over them. Now there were about four hundred men with him.” 1 Samuel 22:1-2 NAS.
“Men will go into caves of the rocks and into holes of the ground before the terror of The LORD and the splendor of His majesty,
When He arises to make the earth tremble. In that day men will cast away to the moles and the bats, their idols of silver and their idols of gold, which they made for themselves to worship, in order to go into the caverns of the rocks and the clefts of the cliffs before the terror of The LORD and the splendor of His majesty, when He arises to make the earth tremble.” Isaiah 2:19-21.
“And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.Christ Is Preached. But I want you to know, brethren, that the things to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel, so that it has become evident to the whole palace guard, and to all the rest, that my chains are in Christ; and most of the brethren in The LORD, having become confident by my chains, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.” Philippians 1:9-14 NKJV.
“Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look not only for his own interest but also for the interest of others. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bond servant, and coming in the likeness of men.8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.” Philippians 2:1-8.
