I heard, “The Secret Room of Communion, the Inner Sanctum, and the ‘Sold-out Lovers of God’.”
“Beloved. You think I did not see when you spoke of Me…. but oh how I was smiling, My Child.
I heard you mention My Name even in the midst of the darkness. I know every time you speak of Me and it is written in My Book of Remembrance.
Fear not, Precious One. Do not wonder any longer if I hear you for I know intimately those who are Mine. You have come into the Secret Place of the Most High through the Son.
Though many trials have come, you did not lose your faith. You have given up much to follow Me. The attacks of the enemy have been many against you and your family.
But still you entered the Secret Place and sought My Face. The Door on our Secret Room is sealed with the Mark of the Holy Spirit.
For it is here you will receive wisdom and understanding and counsel and might. My Presence is your Inner Sanctum. I will not let the enemy grieve you here. For you are a Lover of God and not of yourself.
I see your heart, Dear One. We are One in the Spirit. When the enemy comes at you, run to me, Beloved. For he who dwells in the secret place of the Most High abides under the shadow of the Almighty.
I AM your Refuge and Fortress; surely I shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. You abide under the Shadow of My Wings.
Because you have set your love upon Me, I will deliver you from every evil work. Every eye shall see your reward, Beloved, and they shall KNOW that YOU ARE MINE.
They shall marvel and be astonished and KNOW that you have been with JESUS!”
SOLD OUT: Completely committed, devoted, invested and engaged to a cause. To have no reserves about the decision you are making. To be willing to go anywhere, do anything and give up everything in order to achieve your goal by any means necessary.

“Safety of Abiding in the Presence of God.
1He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2I will say of The LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.”
3Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence.
4He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
5You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, 6Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
7A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.
8Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked. 9Because you have made The LORD, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, 10no evil shall befall you,
nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; 11for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.
12In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
14“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
15He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.
16With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation,” Psalm 91.
