Beloved, remember the Israelites, how they passed through the desert experiencing a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night to guide them forward. My sons and daughters of this hour, My Remnant Bride, My Church, you have been traveling through a wilderness season, and I have not left you defenseless, for My Spirit has been guiding and directing you.
At times it may have seemed that I was far away, that My presence was not with you, but I was there close to you, encouraging your heart. There was a purpose in it all; to have you know the LORD your God was the only One that you could cry out to and you could depend on.
At times you felt that even those closest to you, friends and family, didn’t understand, but I was there cheering you on with the cloud of witnesses, your unseen intercessors.
The work that I have been doing in your heart is very key, very important for this final hour, as you go forward. As you are have been seeking Me and pressing into My heart, there has come a change.
You have been in a press, in a mold and I have been confirming you and changing you into the image of My Son. So, do not despair but go through the final stage. You are coming to the end: you are coming out My bride, My beautiful treasure, My delight.
I bring you forward into the morning hour. Although darkness will prevail across the earth, you will shine with My glory as burnished gold. Nothing will be able to snag you, nothing will affect you, but you will go forward with your eyes fixed on Me, and I will carry you through.
I lift you up on wings like eagles and you soar with Me.
Every mountain shall be brought low, and you will move with ease in these turbulent days ahead. There was a deeper purpose in it all.
Thank you My sons, thank you my daughters for pressing into My heart and trusting Me.
Thank you for not getting caught up in what other people would have you do or say, but only looking to the LORD your God for I have rescued you.
Your joy shall be full. Great, great joy is coming. It is deep within your heart and it cannot be explained by the outward circumstances of life.
“Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning on her beloved?” Song of Solomon 8:5a.
“For, behold the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee,” Isaiah 60:2.
“You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye,” Psalm 32:7-8.
