I had an experience today.
I was very sad about some things and was seeking God on them.
We know the devil is attempting to wear out the saints. I heard to “be still before Him”.
And in a vision, I saw Jesus coming to His Beloved as a King, dressed in beautiful white and golden robes and taking His Bride in His arms and comforting her.
He cannot resist her because His compassion for her is SO great in these last days. And then He dressed Himself in Shining Armor and “wrapped Himself in HIS ZEAL as a cloak”……
“Beloved. Hush, My Darling. Fear not. I AM your Warrior King and Bridegroom. I AM near. I AM coming to you, My Bride.
You shall encounter Me. Not just by faith this time, but My Presence shall be with you and I shall hold you as a mother holds her child.
The King has come to you. You shall know that I AM with you. Rise up from your place of weeping, My Love.
I come to comfort you. I AM the Lifter of your head. I see your tears. I hear your cries. I feel the anguish of your soul and I AM moved with compassion.
I AM right here. It is all right, it will be all right, My Child. I know the disappointments. I see that you have lost your hope and your expectation.
You have been grieving like a woman forsaken. But your Maker is your Husband, The LORD of Hosts is My Name.
I AM coming to you, Beloved. I will make all things new. You are not forsaken. As you focus on Me, you shall encounter Me.
I will hold you in My Arms today. I AM your Bridegroom King; your Dread Champion in SHINING armor.
I AM ever with you, My Love. Keep looking to Me. I will come to you. I have for a long time held My Peace.
Because of the great injustices and hurts inflicted upon My Body, I have aroused Myself like a Mighty Warrior, I have put on garments of vengeance as clothing and wrapped Myself in zeal as a cloak.
I shall roar and I shall cry against your enemies and they shall fall! It is finished!
I shall prevail against your enemies…. I AM coming to you, Beloved.
Look for Me. I shall come like a rushing stream that the Breath of the Lord drives. Be still, My Love, and see the salvation of your God.”

“The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still,” Exodus 14:13.
“Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed; neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame; for you will forget the shame of your youth, and will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore. For your Maker is your husband, The LORD of hosts is His name; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth. For the Lord has called you like a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, like a youthful wife when you were refused,” says your God, ” Isaiah 54:4-6.
“The LORD shall go forth like a mighty man; He shall stir up His zeal like a man of war. He shall cry out, yes, shout aloud; He shall prevail against His enemies.
I have held My peace a long time, I have been still and restrained Myself. Now I will cry like a woman in labor, I will pant and gasp at once.
I will lay waste the mountains and hills, and dry up all their vegetation; I will make the rivers coastlands, and I will dry up the pools.
I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known.
I will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight.
These things I will do for them, and not forsake them,” Isaiah 42:13-16.
“So truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Then The LORD saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice.
He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor; therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him; and His own righteousness, it sustained Him.
For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head; He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak.
According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay, fury to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; the coastlands He will fully repay.
So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him,” Isaiah 59:15-19.
