“And Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal,” “ John 12:23-25 NASU.
“You have a seed planted in the womb of your spirit beloveds. It is the Spirit of GOD.
This seed has been growing and growing inside of you for a time. But soon it will explode to bring forth NEW LIFE to you and to all around you.
I have been working on the death of your flesh in order to bring about LIFE to your spirit and soul. It is only by dying to your will, your desires, and what self wants, that then I can live and have My being move through you to minister pure Resurrection LIFE to others.
If there is pride and fears still in your heart, and any other aberration that robs you of your ability to perfectly serve ME, then KNOW that I AM in process of killing that in you.
I AM RESTORING. But the building which has not first been torn down and cleaned out, cannot be rebuilt and dwelt in.
I cannot pour new wine into old musty wineskins that will not allow ME to move in you as I WILL. Thus I AM TEARING DOWN, and plucking out all that cannot withstand what is ahead for those that will ALLOW ME.
I know that this surgery is difficult and I AM giving MANY more time, but I have My own time-table which supercedes your time-table or the theories of men who are proud of their own opinions.
This gestational period will surely bring forth a bride that will please her King. That bride will lay her crown down at My feet, not taking any credit for what I do in and through her.
She will not savagely turn on brothers and sisters who don’t think as she does. She will not ravage the hearts of the lost, judging and criticizing them . She will not defend herself — she will be like ME when I AM finished.
She will confront the darkness that is in people or over them. She will not diminish their value and worth. She will love and honor whom I love and honor. Because I DON’T give up on people.
I don’t get tired of dealing with them. I know the roots of insecurity in every person. I know their history and every thought of their minds and every intention of their hearts.
I always give another chance. My judgment is MY LOVE GREATLY PROVOKED TO JEALOUSY! I judge the wicked differently then those I know will turn to ME.
I AM not vengeful, though I take vengeance. I AM not impatient, though I grow weary. I AM not hateful, though I hate much of what man does. IT IS AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH, but it will get more and more like it yet. The fullness of the wickedness that is coming cannot even be imagined.
There will be many that though they are Mine, will be lost in the coming judgments, because it rains on the good and the bad alike.
Be careful not to judge that something happened just because I was angry at someone . Lest you find yourself in the same position!
Judge NOT lest you be judged! I know what is in the hearts of men, and that is NOT YOUR JOB. When you are free from the pride of man, and the lust for authority, and position, then you can be given access to My heart for the lives of others — to know how to speak with kindness and love to even your enemies, when they are torturing you!
Many offerings will be made in this hour by My beloveds.
Many will lay down their lives for the sake of the Church and for the sake of the LOST. For I have spoken to you of these things beloveds in My Word. I want you to be ready to face even death in the eye, and be able to be UNAFRAID, knowing that I AM Your DEFENSE, and I AM YOUR HOPE, and I AM YOUR FIRST LOVE.
I allow nothing in your lives without having already prepared the solution and remedy. I AM doing a DEEP WORK in your hearts and souls.
NOTHING will stop what I want. NOTHING can keep you from your destiny in ME. I AM THE SOVEREIGN GOD, and there is no other. I alone am in charge of judging wickedness.
You need to keep your eyes on ME, and SEEK THE LIVING WORD, that your hope and peace cannot be removed.
I AM your Pearl of great price ! I AM Your Bridegroom and the Lover of Your Soul!
I AM Your DEFENSE, and the WALL around you. I will always love you and do what is best for you.
Will you TRUST ME IN THIS?
Will you lay down your fears and trust ME?
Will you lay down your rights?
Will you learn to depend on ME alone?
I have given you friendships and families, but they are not to be your idols. I AM yoking many of you together for MY purposes, so you must trust ME also when I remove you from one place and plant you in another.
I AM REARRANGING the furniture in My Church. I AM rearranging many things in your lives. You must listen and trust ME.
I AM the only ONE to be worshiped and I AM increasing the glory as you WORSHIP ME, NO MATTER WHAT YOU GO THROUGH!
WORSHIP! WORSHIP! WORSHIP!
