I thought I heard “Grease Spots” and The LORD began to remind me how hard it is to get grease spots out of clothing.
You can scrub now with some new orange smelly mixture right away and then put detergent on it and scrub. But it takes special treatment. Some areas of our heart are like this also. They need special treatment.
I heard, “I know all where all the grease spots are in your heart. I AM able to cleanse them and heal those areas damaged in your heart.
I AM able to do the heart surgery it takes to cleanse them away. I will also do ‘mind surgery’ and erase all the bad
memories if you will allow Me to.
It does take special care, time with ME, and sometimes others who will SOAK you in prayer to get to those places.
Those are places that need tender loving care from other human beings as well. The Church that is truly MINE must see that sometimes, only affection from another human being will clear away those grease spots on your heart.
I AM and should be first in your heart. But human touch is a healer, when it is done correctly. Kindness is catching.
When you touch others with kindness and nurturing it brings FREEDOM to their soul. Even the hardest con man can be touched by the tenderness of another’s heart.
I AM joining some people together who will love on each other and be able to understand each other like no one else can.
There has been enormous VIOLENCE done to many souls. This kind of violence, whether it comes from physical, emotional, or spiritual abuse or neglect, can only be filled by nurturing LOVE.
Love is the greatest weapon against the violence that has run rampant in the world. People need to FEEL LOVED, not just told they are loved. Too many in The Church espouse love, but don’t know how to show it.
I am increasing MY LOVE in The Church. Some of this is happening because people are going through trials and finally getting broken.
But an enormous WAVE OF MY LOVE is soon to hit The Church and when this happens, there will be an explosion of My love in your hearts.
You will instantly repent of any resentments, or unkindnesses in your hearts, or any unforgiveness for you will realize how futile and hurtful it is.
You may think you know a lot already My Bride, but you haven’t seen or understood anything yet compared to the revelation that is coming.
You will have a new understanding of MY CROSS. THE CROSS is central to LOVE. Just as I bore My Cross, you will have to learn to bear yours with GRACE and dignity, and with a kindness and humility unknown till now by many. You will see a merging of streams of the church because of the cross you will have to bear.
You will see many come into the KINGDOM because of the astounding miracles, signs and wonders I will do through you!
Embrace My CROSS and YOURS! Do not bow to the ways of this world.
For all who do will be defiled by it and perish because of it. You cannot love God and mammon. What will it profit your soul if you gain the whole world but lose your soul?
I AM bigger than all the opposition that will come against you as I pour out My power!
I AM BIGGER. I AM ELOHIM, the CREATOR of heavens and the earth. NOTHING is impossible with ME.
So CLING to ME beloveds! CLING TO ME! CLING TO ME! SPEAK MY WORD.
SING MY WORD. PRAISE ME with all of your heart. For I will do great and marvelous things amidst the fray.”

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep!

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us,” 1 John 1:8-10 NKJV.
