“I AM like the Chocolate Icing on your cake. I AM sweet and yummy to the taste.
I have some sweet morsels I want to share with My beloveds. Ladies like sweet things, because of their sensitivity.
I made you that way, so that when a man gets married with you, you have perfect balance together you make a whole.
But for many of you who have sacrificed marriage, or have failed marriages, I AM Your Lover, and I AM the Sweetness of your life.
I love that! Yes, I said, I LOVE THAT! I love it that you look to Me for sweetness when you need it.
I want to be there for you and to be the best thing on your plate! I AM full of love and kindness for you, because I delight in you, My Beloveds.
There are many men also who have a taste for things that are sweet, and not sour, and a woman can add so much love to his life, that it will tenderize the rough places in him.
There are others that are too wild and untamed to appreciate a woman, or even who have such anger seething inside, that they are incapable of love, but only violence.
But I AM Love, and I love you. I have wrapped you with bands of love, even though you have not understood it all, nor everything I have allowed you to go through.
I have delighted in you when I see you persevere in believing Me, even when everything around you says otherwise.
Even when the devil has tormented you and tried to make you feel as though you had failed Me one to many times, and are now disqualified.
I AM proud of you when you withstand his lies, and tell him to get out! I AM proud of you when you fail and you come to Me, and open your heart to Me, even though you feel ashamed.
I AM proud of you when you fail, because it doesn’t stop you from trying again and again to please Me, and to overcome all the obstacles in your lives.
I want you to Rejoice when you fail, after you get over your initial pain when you realize you’ve blown it.
I want you to come to Me in The Secret Place and worship. Show the enemy that no matter what happens, you can run to Me.
My tender Mercies endure forever. Beloveds, I want for you to also have that same tenderness and understanding for those who have not yet been broken as you have!
I want you to keep believing for miracles. I AM full of Miracles i want to perform through you. But you know that unless you were broken and bruised, and came to the end of your self-life, that you would take that power and it would cause you to be puffed up like Satan was if your character was not more perfected.
Broken vessels know that it’s not them who are doing the Miracles, that it is Me doing them through them. I have many favorites.
Do not give in to an exclusive Gospel from anyone who thinks they are the beginning and the end of things.
I AM the only Beginning and End. I AM God Almighty, The Creator of the Universe. I will not share My Glory with another.
I AM increasing My Glory in you, as you choose Me over other distractions. I AM increasing My Love, Peace, Joy and all that I AM in you, as you rest and minister to Me, and as you rest and let Me minister to you!
I have set many of you apart from others that you might put Me first.
If you are easily distracted by the needs of others over My need to have you near Me, then I must do things to get your focus back on Me.
It is in contemplating, beholding and communion with Me, that Life is given you. My Life. It is only when you take time with Me, and commit yourselves, setting your sites on what I want, that you can hear from Me more clearly.
If you are not dead to self yet, then you will continue holding on to the things of this world, to reputation and what people think of you, to people, to things, to cars, houses, books, comforts, etc.
There is nothing you have, that I can’t replace. There is nothing you want, that I can’t provide.
I purchased a Rest for you, that you wouldn’t have to strive. If you find yourself anxious, it may be that you are striving and not just resting in Me, and allowing Me to take control of everything in your life.
I died that you could have a life of abundance in Me. The priest’s portion was Me. It wasn’t land. It wasn’t houses and rich things of this world, though they were provided for by the rest of Israel. Their portion was Me.”
“This [their ministry to Me] shall be to them as an inheritance, for I AM their inheritance; and you shall give them no possession in Israel, for I AM their possession. [Josh 13:14, 33.]” Ezekiel 44:28 AMP [re the PRIESTS ]
“and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” Revelation 1:5-6 NKJV.
“Beloved, it is not that I don’t want to bless you with things, and finances, but it is so that you can be a blessing to others and do the work of My Kingdom, not to build your own kingdom.
For the moment you entertain “me, myself and I”, then you fall to pride. It is not your Church. It is My Church.
I AM The Way, The Truth and The Life. You are not to lord it over those who are less gifted than you, that you have something they don’t have!
You are to walk in humility, if you want to bear the yoke of My Kingdom and Glory. Humility doesn’t think make others feel lesser than.
I have great Love for the weakest of individuals, for I know the great burdens they have had to bear — even those who are so angry and raging.
I know that person who has had to bear rejection all their life. I know what it takes to get it all out of them. I know the defensive pride and rage inside a woman who was molested as a young girl and couldn’t understand how a parent could do that!
I know, and I AM angry too. But I also know the pain of the perpetrators. I know who was hurt themselves, and who is just wicked, because they choose to be.
I know who would choose Me eventually. You must understand that I don’t condone any violation of The Law. I AM Holy and I want you to be Holy.
But I know it takes longer for some than others, because of the wickedness done to them. I know what it takes to make the blind see, the deaf to hear, spiritually speaking.
I know the deep things of a man’s heart. I know all things. I alone AM The Wise God. I AM about to turn up your discernment and your wisdom as you reply on Me for an opinion about others, as you seek Me on their behalf! I also said — there is only One Who is Holy!
Every time you rely on your own wisdom, you defy The Most Holy Spirit within you!
Everything you do, I want you to do in Love, not in a sense of obligation. If you have a sense of obligation, then check yourself for striving.
I want you to do what I tell you to do. But for that you must listen for My Voice.
I don’t want you to just give Me 15 minutes in Prayer, and rush away and spend the rest of the day not even giving Me a thought.
If you really want to hear, you must be a good listener, of The Word, and of The Word of Life. Worship Me in the beauty of Holiness, I said.
I have given you Grace to come into The Throne Room whenever you want. Think about that!
Think about how the high priest alone could come near. But now the way has been opened for you forever to come before Me, to come into My very Presence.
Only the enemy keep you from it! He tries to convince you you aren’t worthy, or that I will have given up on you.
But I said, My Love endures forever. My Love never fails!.
Endure hardship like a good soldier. Do not turn away from the privilege I died for, so that you could come into My Arms of Love, and learn to give the same Grace I’ve given you, in forgiving all you have done, to others!”
“Serving for God’s Glory But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”” 1 Peter 4:7-8 NKJV.
