Calling The Bride

“The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.” Rev. 22:17

bride“I brought you through another year, I am faithful and true to My word. Be pleased in Me and know that all things work for your good because I have called you. In the midst of all the naysayers, doubters, scoffers and an obstinate generation, I do have some who blindly follow Me along the path I have chosen for them.

This is a quick and easy way to My glory even though to you it doesn’t seem easy or quick! The might of the Lord assures your safe arrival to the next destination in the Spirit; a level which is filled with intrigue, mystery and adventure. You say, “Lord what is all this about?” I tell you that the time of many mysteries are to be solved and it will play out as you seek Me. I will unveil even more than you can imagine.

Palaces are filled with the rich, powerful and influential people but they don’t have any influence with Me nor is their wealth impressive before Me. I say that the truly rich are the ones who pursue My heart and My ways with all sincerity. These are the ones that will inherit My Kingdom; never forget this.

The world you live in is upside down just as Satan has poisoned it with worldly thinking and worldly ways. This will blind all who pursue its wealth, its fame, its glory, come out of it all the more saints. Flee its influence for the day is soon coming when I will send forth My judgments upon the whole world and it’s evil. Submit unto Me, resist the Devil and he will flee from you; indeed he will.

come to meNow you say, “I am ready to come closer this year, I am ready to come up higher in You Lord. I am weary of being where I am.” But I say My child come unto Me and I will show you that your victory and destiny lay in winning at the level you are at now for this is the mystery of contentment; the secret to being happy in all things says the Lord. Many saints want to hop from level to level as quickly as they can like in a Mario Brothers computer game, “Ha” I say, for life in Me isn’t that way. I’m in no hurry to see you gain levels, the next level only promises you more of the same. Am I not the same yesterday, today and tomorrow?

Here is the saint’s assignment in the coming year:

Come unto Me, forget your way, your understanding and come with a pure heart, with pure motives, come only to love Me and let Me love you. Come to My feet and weep and I will restore your soul, I will grant you the desires of your heart.  My ways are not your ways so quit trying to figure Me out; you can’t! My ways are written in My word over and over again, My values have been clearly spoken. My plans for you are My plans are they not? So come to Me and I will begin to take you further along the journey into Me.  Your destiny isn’t a place, your destiny is Me, I AM your destination.  Just come unto your God and experience My depths and you will escape your world, your life and your understanding.

This is the year for the saints to ignore the world altogether. Why are you spending so much time in worry about a system that is passing away and passing away very soon? Don’t get involved in the debates. These things are better left to politicians, to leadership and to those whose steps are mired in that system.

gardenFor My people, I am opening up My Kingdom and giving access like never before, come and see if this isn’t true. My bride will begin to assemble herself in her courts; the court of My Presence. Her garden is empty of her presence at this moment, desolate, gray and flowerless, dry, dirty and contemptible because her garden is not kept.

But now I am calling her out from the world, from the harlotry that she is doing.  I am calling her out of her playing and adultery with foreign spirits, unclean spirits, which have caused her devotion to Me to be small.  Her shame is great, her values are not mine.  Her priorities are not Mine nor is her heart and the lover she has chosen has done nothing but abuse her.

Now I say I am calling her out, I am moving upon her heart to set her free, I am calling her to Me.  I am breaking the chains of her adultery, her addictions, and her fornications.  I am calling her unto Me; to her garden, a chaste garden for only Me.  I am calling her to her garden of preparation, for the Lord says, come to Me and I will give you garments of white linen to cover your nakedness and I will clean your heart, I will put My heart in you.

This is the year…Come!”

  • Oh That I May Be With Him

    One of the strangest lessons in this life must be that hardships and problems draw us closer and closer to our Lord.

    with himWhile still mourning the death of my mother, I was in the process of moving my oldest brother into suitable living arrangements.  My brother is mentally challenged and has been my “inheritance” since our mother’s death.  Naturally I was feeling sad, lonely and anxious from the stress, the decisions to be made and clearly the physical labor of moving.  I felt completely removed from my normal routine and wondered if my life would ever resemble what it used to be?  Would my life ever have a purpose or a destiny?  It appeared esteemed people around me had  a calling on their life; they had ministry positions and compared to my seemingly sad and boring life day-after-day, they looked to be important.

    While talking to the Father about these thoughts and feelings, I imagined myself to be of no use to Him, I felt I wasn’t working for the Kingdom and somehow “letting Him down.”  Quietly I said to Him, “Lord, I just want to be used by You, to do something for You.”  Quickly, Holy Spirit responded to me, “I have lots of people doing things for Me, what I need is someone to be with Me.”  Those simple yet profound words thrilled me; He wants me to be with Him!  These magnificent words changed my life and changed the way I saw myself from that moment forward.

    The Father desires a relationship with you.  No longer is there a wall between you and God, you have access to Him, He desires for you to spend time with Him, getting to know Him.

    “Jesus went up into the mountain, and called to himself those whom he wanted, and they went to him.  He appointed twelve, that they might be with him, and that he might send them out to preach, and to have authority to heal sicknesses and to cast out demons.”  Mark 3:13-15.

    “Father, I desire that they also whom you have given me be with me where I am, that they may see my glory, which you have given me, for you loved me before the foundation of the world.   Righteous Father, the world hasn’t known you, but I knew you; and these knew that you sent me. I made known to them your name, and will make it known; that the love with which you loved me may be in them, and I in them.”  John 17:24-26

    bench afarJournal entry: Lord I’m thanking You for opening doors for my brother a nice house to live near us and for him to be safe and happy.  I’ve felt really sifted during this process of mourning Mom and taking on the responsibility of my brother. Sometimes a part of me wants my old life back!  I’m afraid and weepy today but I keep my eyes on You Lord and I won’t LET myself be troubled, I won’t LET self pity come on me, I won’t lose heart or lose faith in You.  You will never leave me or forsake me.  When I feel like this, I do not need to think or mull things over, I don’t need to seek pity from others, I just need to be still and quiet and look to You.  So, I stay on the alter under the knife and I will my mind to shut up and to offer praise, thanks and prayers unto You, for I know You have a plan for me and for my life for a hope and a future (Jer. 29:11).    I am weak in myself but strong in You Lord.

    I visualize bringing my cares and laying them at Your feet, I see You touch the top of my head lovingly and I crumble at Your feet.  I hear You telling me, “Shhhhhh.”

    My friend, St. John of the Cross said, “The deeper my faith = the closer my union with God.”

    “Experience with God only comes by pressing in and abiding in Him.  He wants purity of heart, not gifts without fruit.”  It’s not about religion, it’s about relationship.”  Neville Johnson
