“He also is the Head of [His] body, the church; seeing He is the Beginning, the Firstborn from among the dead, so that He alone in everything and in every respect might occupy the chief place [stand first and be preeminent ],” Colossians 1:18 AMP.
“This day, I AM changing the predominant order of things. What was will not be the same. What will be will be determined by those who choose to walk in obedience to My leading.
I AM to be the preeminent ONE, the predominant force in My church. I AM the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. NO man comes to the Father except through ME.
I AM not suggesting that you not touch My glory, but I AM the glory bearer, and it is I Who says who will carry what in My church.
I have been silent for a long time, but now I AM taking up My BANNER and lifting it up over MY PEOPLE. It is a banner of LOVE. But that love is not to be walked on any more than My grace is to be walked on or taken for granted.
I KNOW what is in your hearts. I know your motivations and secret thoughts. I KNOW what is behind the closed doors inside your heart, the secret sins, the secret events of your life, that you’ve never told anyone. I know the level of mixture that is inside any one of you.
THERE IS NONE THAT IS PURE. THERE IS ONLY ONE WHO IS GOOD. I know what unforgiveness still lies in your heart, what perverse thoughts, what rebellion or rejection that comes against your thoughts.
I know all the enemy has done to try to trip you up. I AM telling you that the hour of his demise is at hand. And the hour of the demise of all that is ungodly is AT HAND.
I AM lifting up MY STANDARD. You will see much more clearly soon, and you will have insight you had not had before. Your perception will grow larger, your deception will be eliminated, and your discernment will expand so that you will not be at all blind-sighted.
I will connect the heart with the mind for those who have blockage in their memories, and past. I will destroy the strongholds of the enemy, shining MY LIGHT on your darkness.
For I AM the Father of LIGHTS, and I AM FULL OF GLORY. I WILL MAKE KNOWN TO YOU SECRETS THAT ARE IN MY HEART AS YOU DRAW CLOSE TO ME.”
The “Come Let Us Worship and Bow Down,” song came to my mind.
“Worship ME in the beauty of HOLINESS I said. But My people have strayed, believing lies and all forms of harlotry.
As I pour out this glory I’ve promised, you will see the TRUTH much more clearly than before. You will know what is real and what is false, truth from a lie.
Dearly beloveds, I have given you much warning of what is coming. I’ve given you small details. I’ve given you glimpses of the beyond, but still My people refuse to walk in the light of the truth.
They prefer the bondage of pretense and lies to truth. Thus many will be perplexed and confused at what I do. But those who have been prepared and who have truly listened will know how to walk in freedom and liberty, and be able to discern the counterfeit from the true.
Arise and put on robes of linen. Buy from ME, gold refined in the fire. For I AM knocking and calling to you again and again, hoping for you to come and sup with ME, to spend time with ME, that I may share intimate thoughts with you. “
“I counsel 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 3:18-21 NKJV.
“Extraordinary things are on the horizon. REMEMBER ALWAYS THAT MY LOVE NEVER FAILS. When all else fails, and favor shifts in another direction, know that I AM WITH YOU.
I am beside you, over you, under you, behind you, in front of you. I AM in you. You are Mine and I AM yours, and I will never, never leave you.
I AM the God of Adoption, not abandonment. Do NOT hold on to what is in this world, for this world is passing away. You are citizens of another world. Hold on to ME beloveds.
Hold on to ME! Hold fast to what you have learned. LET ME TOUCH YOU in the secret place that all that behind you may be healed, and all that is ahead of you, you will be prepared for.“
