I see the Bride of Christ. And all around her are burning the fires of adversity.
But though these demonic fires rage, she is in a beautiful walled Garden where Living Waters are flowing.
The Fourth Man in the fire has become her Rufuge, her Fortress, her Place of Rest even in the midst of her enemies. And her Beloved is singing over her Songs of Deliverance.
I heard “Time for RESPITE.”
“Beloved. I know you have been through the fires and back. The enemy rages against My Anointed as he raged against Me, seeking to do you harm.
He sees that you are Mine. But do not be afraid of him, My Child. I AM the Fourth Man in the fire. I AM your Refuge and Strength, your very present Help in trouble.
Therefore, do not fear, though the earth be removed and the mountains shake and are carried into the sea; when you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned.
The fires of adversity shall not kindle upon you. The smell of smoke shall not even be upon you, for I AM in your midst.
I have delivered you from the kingdom of darkness and into My marvelous Light. You have come into My Garden of Spices flowing with Living Waters, the River of God.
Rest, My Love while I sing Songs of deliverance over you. It is time to BREATHE again.”
RESPITE: Hebrew: Revachah Strongs: 7310 relief, BREATHING, respite. A rest, reprieve, a break. To relieve by a pause or interval of rest.
“If our God Whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, He will deliver us out of your hand, O king,” Daniel 3:16.
“He answered and said, “Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God,” Daniel 3:25.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: He uttered his voice, the earth melted. The Lord of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah,” Psalm 46:1-7.
“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee,” Isaiah 43:2.
“You are a garden spring, a well of flowing water streaming down from Lebanon. Awaken, O north wind, and come, O south wind. Breathe on my garden, and spread the fragrance of its spices. Let my Beloved come into His garden and taste its choicest fruits,” Song of Solomon 4:15-16.
