Many of my children feel as though they have been buried beneath the rubble of the stones that have been thrown. I tell you, my children, do not waste time with thoughts of vexation, as this has all been foretold in my word.
He who does not love does not know me, for I am love. Understand where this fruit comes from, so that you will not be offended. Betrayal comes from a heart that is unfaithful towards me. Persecution comes from a heart that serves another God – a false Christ who loves the world above my precepts. Slander and gossip come from salt water, not the living water of my word, for fresh and salt water cannot come from the same source.
Do not take offense towards those whose hearts worship idols. Do not mourn long for those whose neglect reveals a fickle heart and whose infidelity exposes self - idolatry. For it is foretold in my word that in the last days men will be lovers of themselves and lovers of pleasure. Have nothing to do with such people. Pray for them and rejoice at the fulfillment of my word. It is foretold that the love of many will grow cold and indeed, it has. Without me as first love, it is not possible to love others. Waste no time and bewilderment at the examination of rotten fruit. Though you mourn, rejoice at the recognition of roots revealed. Let the tares be bundled before the wheat. Rejoice, for the sons and daughters of God about to likewise be made manifest.
Ask the people:
How warm is your love? Has it grown cold? I tell my church to return to her first love. I tell her that I will spit the lukewarm from my mouth. Yet, very few believe my word, otherwise they would have taken their temperature and repented. Tell my people to restore the urgency with which my disciples and apostles preached my word 2000 years ago. How much sooner is my son's return now then it was then?
Rend your hearts, not your garments.
Those who are waiting on me are being ignited as my glory carriers who will like the way in the encroaching sea of darkness. My rivers of living water will flow from my remnant like hot springs. Pressure and heat from the fiery trials produced by your love for me, as I first loved you, will cleanse, heal and restore many in the long winter ahead. Understanding the grace of the cross, resurrection and blood of the Lamb, Friendship with me and knowing how to hear and obey my spirit enables you to walk confidently in my authority. Though my coming judgments are righteous, I am eager to extend my hand of mercy to the lost who will come to know me and how long I have loved them.
My children, some of you feel like a cork about to pop, regarding the coming harvest. Your youthful and bouyant zeal pleases and delights me, as that is my heart to reveal myself and my children to those who are perishing, that they might be saved and adopted into our family. I will have my desire.
Quiet yourselves before me. Continue to wait on me as I build the anointing that I have chosen for the unique and difficult season ahead. You must hold still before me. Seek my spirit to minister to you. As you obey me, I will see to it that your cup runs over. All of creation awaits in eager expectation for my sons and daughters to be revealed!
Fling wide to the doors of the east gate. Make room in my temple for the king of glory. Position yourselves as I lead you. I love you,
To anoint/hotspring/to break through
1 John 4:8
He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
And when you stand to pray, if you hold anything against another, forgive it, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your trespasses as well.
