The LORD spoke to me “Midnight Madness…” then I asked what He wanted to say.
“I AM coming like a mighty rushing Wind, and in a sudden moment, everything will Eclipse! There will be sudden change and sudden life and glory and power!
I AM not a man that I should lie, and I AM not a God afar off, but close at hand! I have been urging you to come close and to receive healing and nurturing, deliverance and rest, that you might be prepared for this hour.
This suddenness I speak of will catch many in My Church sleeping. Fear will come in to attempt to overwhelm many.
The storehouses are not prepared for what is going to happen! It would be madness not to prepare for what is ahead yet many are sleeping!
I urge you to buy from Me, gold refined in the Fire that you may be rich, and white garments that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and Repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My Throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His Throne, (Revelation 3:19-21).
How many of you are willing to pay the full price? How many of you are willing to change your lifestyle for the sake of giving all you have to establish My Kingdom?
Is this too radical a thing for you My beloveds? Did the Son of Man have anyplace to lay His head?
Some of you, I will for you to keep what you have and to establish a beachhead in your community where people can come and receive nurturing and grace, healing and deliverance.
But many I will ask to give up the affluence they are used to, to be My Servants.
What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?
The youth are going to come in and will they come to a lukewarm Church? Or will they come to those who are willing to give; to share; to break bread; who mean what they say that’s in the Word?
Will you lay down your life and take up My Cause? Some of you I will reposition, and re-order your lives. Do you really mean it when you tell Me that you will do anything for Me?
What if it means that man may reject you and think you too radical or whacko? What if it means that you give up the luxury you are used to, and some of the comforts to make room in your home for outcasts and orphans, abandoned and the broken?
Many of you have more room than you need, and yet are unwilling to give up anything. You have grown full and comfortable and unwilling to bend.
I admonish you to be willing to let Me change and order your life. I AM about to pour wealth out to many who you have rejected and put out, and thought incapable!
For I AM looking for willing hearts and people who love others as I love them! This is the mark of My true Disciples. They love whom I love. They give as I would give. They weep as I would weep.
They rise up at injustice as I would rise up at injustice. They speak, depending on Me for what to say.
I AM looking for those who like Me, do not break a bruised reed! I did not treat people like flotsam and jetsam. I loved on them and received them as little children. Let this mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus!”
“A bruised reed He will not break, smoking flax He will not quench; He will bring forth justice for truth. He will not fail nor be discouraged, till He has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands shall wait for His law.” Isaiah 42:3-4 NKJV.
“Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: [Let Him be your example in humility:] Who, although being essentially one with God and in the form of God [possessing the fullness of the attributes which make God God], did not think this equality with God was a thing to be eagerly grasped or retained, but stripped Himself [of all privileges and rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being. And after He had appeared in human form, He abased and humbled Himself [still further] and carried His obedience to the extreme of death, even the death of the cross!” Philippians 2:5-8 AMP.
“I never give up on you. I do have to chastise you as a good father would at times, but I never give up on you!
Will you dwell on My Love for a time, that you may be infused with My Love and Mercy?
Will you focus on My Love, rather than busyness and judging for a time… and ask Me to come and impart to you, what you are still lacking in wisdom and understanding about it?
There is little time left for preparation, so I AM asking you beloveds to not neglect your time with Me.
Be not foolish virgins, but wise. For I AM not cruel and harsh, but loving and kind, and only want to pour out more of My love in you.
I AM wanting to remove all the hindrances in your soul to receiving the fullness of My Glory! Dwell on My Word. Eat of the Bread of Life!”
“May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [ Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality ]. May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, that you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love ] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it]; [ That you may really come ] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves ] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!” Ephesians 3:16-19 AMP
“Then The Kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. five of them were foolish (thoughtless, without forethought) and five were wise (sensible, intelligent, and prudent).
For when the foolish took their lamps, they did not take any [extra] oil with them; but the wise took flasks of oil along with them [also] with their lamps. While the bridegroom lingered and was slow in coming, they all began nodding their heads, and they fell asleep.
But at midnight there was a shout, Behold, the bridegroom! Go out to meet him!
Then all those virgins got up and put their own lamps in order And the foolish said to the wise, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out. But the wise replied, There will not be enough for us and for you; go instead to the dealers and buy for yourselves. But while they were going away to buy, the bridegroom came,and those who were prepared went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut. Later the!other virgins also came and said, Lord, Lord, open [the door] to us! But He replied, I solemnly declare to you, I do not know you [I AM not acquainted with you]. Watch therefore [give strict attention and be cautious and active], for you know neither the day nor the hour when the Son of Man will come.” Matthew 25:1-13 AMP.
“Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming — in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning — lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping. And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!”” Mark 13:35-37 NKJV.
