My Bride Walks in Joy


“Behold, God, my salvation!  I will trust and not be afraid, for the Lord God is my strength and song; yes, He has become my salvation.  Therefore with joy will you draw water from the wells of salvation.  And in that day you will say, Give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name and by means of His name [in solemn entreaty]; declare and make known His deeds among the peoples of the earth, proclaim that His name is exalted!”   Isaiah 12:2-4, AMP.

“My child, I tell you today to walk in joy and draw water from My wells.  It is a day of fasting and sorrow for the Jews.  They have called these days the “dire straits,” but I call it Joy.

My joy is your strength, so partake of it no matter what the date or hour, no matter what you see happening in the natural world.  I tell you truly that in a day I can turn the captivity of My people so that their celebrations will echo throughout the world.

I rejoiced and danced when I ministered among the people of the house of Israel.  My joy overflowed and confounded some.  They came and asked why I did not lead My followers in fasts and sorrow as the religious leaders taught.  But the joy of the Bridegroom does not mourn in sorrow for He has come for His Bride.

In all these difficulties, I see My Bride arising.  I see the determination in her eyes.  She is looking only to Me.  She is yielding herself to the bridal preparations.  The fire in her heart is no longer a little glow, but it is a flame that is growing stronger and brighter with each passing day.

I rejoice to see her becoming the image that I have held in My heart from the foundation of the world.  She is My joy and My beautiful one.  She is fruitful and wise.  She will bring in the harvest of souls as her dowry and lay them at the Father’s Throne.

I release My gifts and graces to her.  She will wear them as diamonds and pearls.  Her gown embedded with stardust is made of the golden cloth of her unwavering faith in Me.  She will go out with me as a warrior Bride and will wield the Sword of the Spirit with precision.  Her lips are coated with honey and her eyes look only to her King.

I call to her and she is arising out of every tribe, tongue and nation.  My call compels her to her destiny. I see her even now.  Be comforted by My words and expressions of love, as you are part of My Bride and your spirit is knitted to Mine.  For in Me all things are possible for those who believe on Me, who forsake all others and only long for My return.

I have overcome. I give you the overcomer’s mantle.  It is the final complement for the wedding ensemble.  Believe Me.  Even in the deepest darkness, My Light shall shatter it as I guide My Bride into her greatest hour.

Celebrate with Me this day for the days of mourning are over.  Hold out your hand and receive from Me all that you need in this hour.  Showers of blessings and grace are released upon you and yours NOW.  Shalom.”
