Beloved. Who are you, My Child? Are you not My temple, Dear One? Yes, you are My Glorious shining jewel.
The world would have you look at yourself in the natural and judges you by it. But this is only your outer shell made of earthly substances. The real you is spirit. The real you is ALIVE in Me.
You have been made a NEW creation by the Blood of the Lamb. Inside of you is a glorious being. You are free from the law of sin and death. You are born of God and the evil one cannot touch you.
You are holy and without blame before Me. You have the mind of Christ. You have received the gift of righteousness. You are a Child of the King. You have received the Spirit of God.
The Spirit of wisdom and revelation is available to you day and night. The eyes of your understanding have been enlightened by My Spirit. You are created in My image. In Me, you live and move and have your being.
You are My own precious possession, chosen, royal, and consecrated unto Me. You have been called out of darkness and into My marvelous light. This is who you are, My Child. You are a Child of Glorious Light.
So arise from this place of defeat and lies built by the enemy and shine, Beloved. I shall give you the power to do so. You are My wise one who shines like the brightness of the heavens, and shall lead many to righteousness.
You shall shine like the stars for ever and ever. Arise and shine, My Warrior Bride. Once you were in darkness, now you are Light in your LORD.
