“That ye PUT OFF (change) concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; and be renewed in the spirit of your mind; and that ye PUT ON (change) the new man, which AFTER God is created in righteousness and true holiness,” (Ephesians 4:22-24).
As I was listening to a certain prophet on Periscope this afternoon, the LORD begin to speak to me about the Butterfly!
You see, He said that the butterfly is symbolic for change, transformation, a process, stages of development or stages of death. It has to do with a glorified body!
It can even be those who are known to jump from one Church to another, or one who is unfaithful to the LORD while going through the process of both their natural and spiritual life, which will affect his or her maturity as an adult!
There are four stages in the metamorphosis of butterflies and moths: egg, larva, pupa, and adult, just as it is for those who are born, die in the natural; as well as the spiritual!
Many of these stages can bring about both heartbreak and grief for those who are going through this transformation!
Why? Because, like all of us that are human no one likes it when they have to go through a new process or stages of change, but I hear God saying that many of you are being stretched and called to come out of your comfort zones in order to build you into a new creation that God has called you to be.
And, God is going to put you through this transformation in order to bring about a new glorified body!
Not only does the butterfly go through stages of death, but we as the people of God also can also go through this process as well! Which are denial, anger, bargaining, depression, (resentment, bitterness) , and then acceptance!
All of this is apart of the grieving process and is normal part of life. And, all these stages have different emotional responses that people go through in response to the knowledge of death.
Jesus was our perfect example when he was in the garden of Gethsemane. He prayed as though great drops of blood dripped from his face, because he wanted to avoid his death and the transformation it would bring! Even though it would bring him a Glorified body!
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new,” 2 Corinthians 5:17.
I heard God saying, even before you became a new convert in Christ, the LORD was bringing you to the death of the Cross (Saul / Paul) for salvation and now how much more now that you that have become born again.
God is speaking, and many don’t understand that as a people of God, we are like a house; a building not made with the hands of man, but eternal in heaven! And, just like the butterfly, we are going from glory to glory in both our natural and spiritual lives!
For, no earthly house ever stays the same, but it’s owner remodels it and he makes changes of updates in order to keep it intact.
For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly DESIRING to be clothed upon with our house (like the butterfly) which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we SHALL NOT be found naked.
For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the LORD, (2 Corinthians 5:1-6)
I hear the Holy Ghost saying that In this season, many are going to be like unto the butterfly and you are going to experience a great transformation and if you haven’t experienced it yet, just live on, stay faithful to God and pray on, because all who live holy shall suffer!
And, not only that, SAITH the LORD but you will experiencing a great shift in both your spiritual and natural life in this season. It is coming, but rest assured if you trust God to take you through it you shall come forth as pure gold!
Your job is to yield to the process!
