Today, in a vision, I heard a mighty roar of a fire. It was a fire of adversity sent against the Body of Christ.
One thing happened after another, like fiery darts coming against them. They felt like they were in a furnace and the heat was being turned up hourly.
And I saw Jesus bending over covering the Bride of Christ with His Own Body as a Shield. And oh, how ferocious was the fire sent against Him and His Anointed.
But He covered her and protected her faithfully and gracefully, He opened not His mouth but took the HITS Himself, He took the HEAT for her. This is what happened at the Cross, Beloved of God.
He is the 4th Man in your Fire. In every circumstance, His Grace is sufficient for you and He is carrying you through it by the Glorious Power of His Might.
So rest in Jesus, in His Everlasting Arms and do not let fear or your circumstances overwhelm you.
And I heard, “I took the HEAT for you, My Bride, I took the HITS so that you are shielded forever in My Everlasting Arms of Love!
I AM the fourth Man in the fire, Beloved. What the enemy means for evil, I AM turning around for your good.
There will not even be one hair singed upon your head, My Child, for I have counted each one. Though you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned and the flame shall not kindle upon you.
Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine.
This fire burning all around you is not of Me, it is an attack of the devil. But I AM with you, Dear One, and I will take you through it.
I work all things together for good. My Presence with you shall consume the enemy on all sides. As we walk this out together, My Grace is quenching ALL the fiery darts of the enemy.
In the middle of the Fires of Adversity walks One who is the Son of God. I came to destroy the works of the devil.
When the enemy comes in, like a flood I raise up a standard against him. He has NOTHING to stand on, My Child.
It is finished. Give him no place and do not let FEAR enter into your heart. You shall come out of this circumstance unscathed for I shield you with My Own Body.
We are One. My Grace is sufficient for you: for My strength is made perfect in weakness.
Fear not; for I AM with you: be not dismayed; for I AM your God: I will strengthen you; I will help you; YES, I will uphold you with My Righteous Right Hand.
Behold, all they that were incensed against you shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with you shall perish.
You shall seek them, and shall not find them, even them that contended with you: they that war against you shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.
For after all, it is only just for your God to repay with affliction those who afflict you, and to give relief to you who are afflicted.
I AM He who is walking with you in the midst of the fire and you shall not be burned. You will not even smell like smoke, Beloved.
And lo, I AM with you always, even unto the end of the age. I AM The LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; You are precious and honored in My sight, and I love you.
Even to your old age I am He; and even to gray hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.
Fear not but stand upon My Word that He Who delivered you from so great a death, and does now deliver you: He will yet deliver you again!”
