O My Beloved Bride, you who have been in a most afflicted and comfortless condition; behold, by My Spirit, I AM making you exceedingly beautiful and pure, stable and glorious.
The Winds of the Spirit are blowing. Open your heart to Me, Beloved. My Spirit of Life demolishes the spirit of fear and death. Like a mother that broods over her newborn babe and soothes him with her love, so I soothe you, Dear One. As My Spirit brooded upon the waters in creation, so My Spirit broods over you and lives in you.
I comfort you and I AM changing you into My image from glory to glory. Let My Breath blow away those clouds of doubt and fear. The King of Glory thunders and the enemy scatters. Your warfare is accomplished. It is finished. For your Maker is your Husband, your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth. You are My Beloved, My Warrior Bride, an exceedingly great army. You have come to your royal position for just such a time as this. Not by might, nor by your own power, but by My Spirit shall this be accomplished. My Glory in you shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it.
“Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to her and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the Lord’s hand double for all her sins….. And the glory (majesty and splendor) of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it,” Isaiah 40:1-2,5.
“Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit,” John 3:7-8.
“Arise, shine, for your Light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you,” Isaiah 60:1.
“Thus says the Lord GOD, “Come from the four winds, O Breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.” So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they came to life and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army,” Ezekiel 37:9-10.
“For your Maker is your husband; the LORD of hosts is His name; and your Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall He be called…. O you afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay your stones with fair colors, and lay your foundations with sapphires,” Isaiah 54:5,10.
