“I AM the Rose of Sharon and the bright and shining Mornningstar!
I AM a refuge in times of trouble and the only ONE Who knows you inside and out!
I AM the Lover of your soul, and I AM the JEALOUS ONE.
I AM jealous for your love. I have created man with an ability and desire to seek after Me. I have put eternity in the hearts of men. There is no excuse for not seeking Me. All creation groans in this hour.
“For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body,” Romans 8:221-23 NKJV
Have you not known? Have you not heard? I AM the one who sits above the heavens. Heaven is My throne and earth is My footstool.
Where is the house you will build for Me? And where is the place of My rest?
“True Worship and False Thus says the LORD: “Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest? For all those things My hand has made, and all those things exist, “Says the LORD.” But on this one will I look: on him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at My word,” Isaiah 66:1-2 NKJV (also Acts 7:49.
I AM building within you a habitation fit for a King! I AM building within you a living conduit for My love!
I AM bringing you forth as gold. I AM going to prosper you.
But the prosperity I have in mind is not always the way man sees it. My prosperity is to be made WHOLE. My prosperity is to be made a fit temple for the Holy Spirit, and His power!
Assurance of the Resurrection
“For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked. For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life. Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee,” 2 Corinthians 5:1-5 NKJV.
I AM preparing a fit BRIDE. She will not be emaciated and weak. She will be strong in the power of My might, and she will be prepared for the battle ahead.
But if she is still inhabited by external forces of darkness, and internal resistance of emotional handicaps, then how can she be fit you might ask?
I AM coming to remedy all that. For I will destroy the work of the destroyer. I will ready My bride. It will not be by might, nor by power of your own making.
It will be by GRACE. For by grace you were saved, and that not of your own works.
“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them,” Ephesians 2:8-10 NKJV.
“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him,” 2 Corinthians 5:20-21 NKJV.
“For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness],” 2 Corinthians 5:21 AMP.
I AM working through many tests and trials, through much patience and longsuffering to make a Bride who will walk along side of ME;
- A Bride who will follow My lead.
- A Bride who will listen to the call of her Lover.
- A Bride who will respect the wishes of her husband, and who will only have Him in her thoughts, not the thoughts of other lovers.
The things of this world cannot compare. I do not want an adulterous bride.
As I come and breathe life into My Bride and execute My great GRACE, I will loose many signs including many marriages that will reflect the close relationship that I as Bridegroom have with My Bride.
Just as newlyweds only have eyes for each other, so will My Bride only long for doing what I want.
So I AM bringing a death to self in her, that will allow Me rulership in your lives.
I AM ADONAI…Your LORD and MASTER am I not?
But a Master is in charge. A Master commands respect and honor, and when a master says go, that one who is owned will go.
When a master says STOP! – That person will stop. That is the kind of obedience that will be birthed in My Bride.
She will not do what she thinks is best, but will do what I THINK IS BEST.
There will be no more independence apart from Me, only dependence on My will, My thoughts, My ways.
Come My Bride and let me love you! Let me perfume you with the scent of ROSES, with myrrh and frankincense, with cinnamon and cassia.
I AM pouring into you the essence of who I AM, that you will smell like ME.
You will walk, talk and think like ME. You WILL WALK IN THE MIND OF CHRIST. You will walk in the SPIRIT and not according to the flesh.
The Coming of Solomon (symbolic of Christ).
“Who is this coming out of the wilderness like pillars of smoke, perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, with all the merchant’s fragrant powders? Behold, it is Solomon’s couch, with sixty valiant men around it, of the valiant of Israel. They all hold swords, being expert in war. Every man has his sword on his thigh because of fear in the night.
Of the wood of Lebanon Solomon the King Made himself a palanquin: he made its pillars of silver, Its support of gold, Its seat of purple, Its interior paved with love By the daughters of Jerusalem. Go forth, O daughters of Zion, and see King Solomon with the crown with which his mother crowned him on the day of his wedding, the day of the gladness of his heart,” Song 3:6-11 NKJV.
