Come and be with me and let me share my heart with you. Let me press upon your heart the things that are important to hear from me in this hour. My ways have not been your ways and that needs to change. I have made you holy, cleansing you by the blood of my Son. But you do not live as those who are holy and set apart for me and my Kingdom. You must be holy as I am holy. Your heart must beat in time with my heart. Your thoughts must be my thoughts.
What I see within my Church is wickedness and pride. There will be no comforting when my cleansing comes and unveils my Bride. An unveiling is coming to remove the sin from within my Bride. My Bride must be pure and spotless and cleansing is coming from within. Take the time necessary to remove and cleanse your hearts from the sin within. I will not tolerate a filthy Bride who continuously covers over her sin. You are not who you were meant to be and I have so much in store for you. But I cannot lavish myself onto a Bride who cowers due to her own pride. A cleansing is coming whether you’re ready or not, so prepare yourself and come to me on bended knee and let me cleanse your sins.
The old has gone and the new has come and my Bride must be holy and one with me. I will not tolerate and put up with this sin much longer. You are the spotless lamb of God upon this earth. You are my representatives of Heaven on earth. My Spirit will not be blocked any longer and I will fill the earth with my glory. I have completely invested myself in you and you have treated my love as garbage. You have thrown away all that I died to give you and made a religion instead. A religion that caters to your needs and satisfies your own conscience. This does nothing to honor me. Your religious practices dishonor me and I will spit it out of my mouth. Your religious practices disgust me and make me sick. I will no longer tolerate this playing pretend. You were not set free so you could play like puppets on a string. I do not work that way. You were born again to be priests and kings!
Your lives are to be lived as royalty to my throne. You are to be holy as I am holy and set apart from a worldly society. Be cleansed and purified and holy as I am. Let nothing defile you and have nothing to do with sin. You are to be a priestly nation bringing my cleansing and freedom to this earth. My words are all that you need to live each day in victory. My words will fill you with life. Do not live according to man’s agenda, but live as one who gives life. My life will flow through you as never before. I will bless and honor you, as you honor me. I will flow through you, giving you rivers of life to those who are thirsty and hungering for more.
This journey you’re on is like no time before. I will make you anew and breathe life into my Bride. Life as you’ve never experienced before. Let us be one and the same here on earth. Let me guide you and lead you in everything you do. Lean not on your own understanding, but rely totally on me for everything that you do. I will guide you and lead you every step of the way into this new territory. For this is my way – the way of YAHWEH.
- 1:13 We would say today, “Roll up your sleeves,” or, “Fasten your seat belt!”
- 1:13 Or “to come out of concealment, appear, be made manifest, revealed.” Peter uses the Greek word apokàlypsis, which is the title of the last book in the Bible, Revelation: The Unveiling of Jesus Christ. The Aramaic can be translated “Stay alert and share the news about the joy that came to you with the revelation of Jesus the Messiah.”
- 1:16 See Lev. 11:44; 19:2. Everything about God is holy. True holiness includes justice, mercy, truth, and righteousness. To be holy is to be absolutely devoted to God in all that we do, demonstrating who he is to the world. Holiness surrounds God’s throne and we are seated with him in heavenly places (Eph. 2:6). The Hebraic concept of holiness is “set apart”; that is, we are a people set apart for God, even as God is “set apart” from all gods. Grace has imbedded holiness into our lives, yet we are to make right choices and to yield to Christ and God’s Word as the Holy Spirit lives in us. Holiness is not merely actions we perform, but what we absorb and manifest as we live our lives in God’s presence. Christ is our holiness (1 Cor. 1:30).
