This word was given to me by wisdom to share with the Bride of Christ. We are at such a critical time on God's calendar and you can feel the spiritual activity increasing very quickly day by day and hour by hour. We are at a time of division and separation and the gray areas are no longer mixed. There is a clear distinction between the holy and unholy. These two are no longer mixed and are now moving farther from the middle to their opposite poles. The separation will clearly be seen and felt by everyone.
Matthew 10: 34-36
Do not imagine that I came to bring peace to the earth! No, rather, a sword. I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law- a man's worst enemies will be right in his own home!
Repent and Return
Wisdom said to me it is time to examine yourself quickly. Strengthen those things that remain, repent and return. Eat my word, Eat my word, Eat my word! Nothing else matters. The time is at hand to leave the things of this world. Destroy your idols, crush them to fine dust repent and return to your first love which is the Lord Jesus Christ. The word says we are not ignorant of Satan's schemes and devices. One of the devices he is using right now is called distraction. Satan uses this device to get our focus off the kingdom and onto the things of this world.
How Did I Get In This Place?
Have there been times in your spiritual life when you feel so distant from God. It feels like you are walking in a dark place and all the doors of escape are locked shut before you. High walls are surrounding you and there is no way to go under, over or around. You find yourself at a spiritual standstill groping in the darkness for God's hand or searching for just a tiny ray of light to guide you out of this dark, dry and lonely place.
You shall grope in the bright sunlight just as the blind man gropes in darkness. You will not prosper in anything you do; you will be oppressed and robbed continuously, and nothing will save you.
When you think back though it was not always this way. When you first received the salvation of Christ, your were on fire for the Lord! You longed to be in his presence and everything would just seem to disappear as you sang your love song to Him. How fulfilling it was to worship and spend time together in your secret closet. Your heart would leap when you spent time with Him and you looked forward to the next time you could be in his presence.
Song of Solomon 2:14
My beloved is like a dove hiding in the cracks of the rock, in the secret places of the cliff. Show me your face, and let me hear your voice. Your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.
For All That Is In This World
You may wonder how did you get so far away from the Lord. Things changed and LIFE began to take over your focus. This change did not just happen all of a sudden or overnight. It was a gradual process of you becoming more concerned about the things of this world. Things like your job, husband / wife, buying new houses and cars, overly occupied with your children, clothes and material things.
These distractions are designed by the enemy to draw you away from the love of the Father through the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. Sometimes these idols were placed on the throne of your heart. This place is only made for Jesus. These distractions replaced the love you had for Jesus with the things of this world. These are the idols you went whoring after.
For all the incense she burned to Baal her idol and for the times when she put on her earrings and jewels and went out looking for her lovers and deserted me-for all these things I will punish her, "says the Lord.
1 John 2: 15-17
Do not love the world's ways. Do not love the world's goods. Love of the world squeezes out love for the Father. Practically everything that goes on in the world-wanting your own way, wanting everything for yourself, wanting to appear important-has nothing to do with the Father. It just isolates you from him. The world and all its wanting, wanting, wanting is on the way out-but who does what God wants is set for eternity.
Jesus Is Calling His Bride To Return To Him
In this season I can hear Jesus calling and wooing his bride to return to her first love. He reminds us that as we draw near to Him, then He will draw near to us. Lastly, He invites us to return to our first love … which is Him.
Before when He would call you to prayer and commune with Him, you would answer immediately but now when he calls, you have stopped answering his calls.
Jesus Calls You:
Hello daughter / son
I want to meet with you this evening.
Can you come spend some time with me I long to hear your voice.
"Ohh that's just Jesus calling.
I will call Him back later.
I worked 12 hours today and I'm exhausted!
I gotta make this money to get my new car!
Jesus knows my heart. "
James 4: 8-10
Come close to God and he will come close to you. Realize that you have sinned and get your hands clean again. Realize that you have been disloyal and get your hearts made true once more. As you come close to God you should be deeply sorry, you should be grieved, you should even be in tears. Your laughter will have to become mourning, your high spirits will have to become heartfelt dejection. You will have to feel very small in the sight of God before he will set you on your feet once more.
Jesus Calls You:
I love you unconditionally and with an everlasting love. Leave your lovers and return to me. I miss you. I will take you back with open arms and give you everything you need
Jesus if I come back to you, I will lose my relationship with my boyfriend / girlfriend husband or wife.
I love them and I worked too hard to make our relationship work.
If I follow hard after you now Lord, I could loss everything.
Luke 14: 25-27
Great crowds were following him. He turned around and addressed them as follows: "Anyone who wants to be my follower must love me far more than he does his own father, mother, wife, children, brothers, or sisters-yes, more than his own life-otherwise he can not be my disciple. And no one can be my disc who does not carry his own cross and follow me.
Revelation 2: 4-5
Yet there is one thing wrong; you do not love me as at first! Think about those times of your first love (how different now!) And turn back to me again and work as you did before; or else I will come and remove your candlestick from its place among the churches.
