I heard, “I AM your Fierce Friend who sticks closer than a brother.”
“Beloved. Fear not. I AM your Fierce Friend. I AM standing with you, My Child. I AM He who sticks closer than a brother.
I AM your Keeper and the very Shade at your right Hand. I AM He who will never leave nor forsake you.
You abide under the Shadow of the Almighty. There is no Friend in life like your Savior. Greater love has no one than this, that He lay down his life for His friends.
I call you My friend. We are closer than any sibling could be in this life. It is a supernatural bond that cannot be broken.
The anointing which is upon Me falls upon you, Dear One, like ointment and sweet perfume that rejoices the heart.
With you I share confidences and the secret things of your God. I AM your favored Companion, your Comforter in times of trouble. You are My dear dear Friend.
There is nothing you cannot share with Me, My Child. I AM the Captain of your salvation. I AM your Defender. I AM He who makes a way where there seems to be no way.
I AM your Fierce Protector, your Elder Brother. I AM roaring over you with a Fierceness that cannot be matched on earth or in heaven and your enemies shall flee!
Surely, I do nothing without revealing My plans to you, My Servant, My Friend, My prophet,
My Child. The Lion has roared — who will not fear? The LORD GOD has spoken — who will not prophesy?”
FIERCE: Of exceptional quality, exhibiting boldness or chutzpah. Aggressive in temperament. Ferocious and forceful, like a lion. Conspicuous or flagrant boldness. When you are fierce, opponents fear you.
FRIEND: Strong’s Greek 5384: BELOVED friend, especially dear, fond. One attached to another by affection or esteem. Favored companion. Confidant. Especially close.
“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are My friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not understand what his master is doing. But I have called you FRIENDS, because everything I have learned from My Father I have made known to you,” John 15:13-15.
“For both He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all from one Father; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them BRETHREN,” (brothers and sisters) Hebrews 2:11.
“A man who has friends must himself be friendly, but there is a FRIEND who sticks closer than a brother,” Proverbs 18:24.
“Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man’s FRIEND by hearty counsel,” Proverbs 27:9.
“Surely the Lord GOD does nothing without revealing His plan to His servants the prophets. The lion has roared — who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken — who will not prophesy?” Amos 3:7-8.
