Suffering Love

There is a cup of love that suffers, I call it ‘The Longing’, I’ve written about it occasionally over the years, but I feel He is increasing this message now. As we read here in Song of Solomon, cleansing and purity alone does not satisfy our Bridegroom King, even those who have yielded to righteousness He still desires more; He is looking for those who long for more of Him, pierced by the woundings of suffering love. If your heart had been touched and awakened by the love of your life, you’d pursue finding them, you would look for and long to be reconnected to them. If you were engaged (which we all are by the way) you would be lovesick for your mate if their presence departed from you for long. This is our Jesus, our bethrothed, and His desire is for you. In the Old Testament, Priests who had access to the Holy of Holies (His presence) were given a commandment by God through Moses to never let the fire go out on the alter, they in essence were in charge of stewarding the Presence of God. We are in the new covenant now, and are called priests and we have the Holy of Holies in our hearts – divine access to His presence and heart through Jesus. In the same way, the principle hasn’t changed, we must never let the fire stop burning on the alter of our hearts.

“The fire on the altar shall be kept burning; it shall not [be allowed to] go out. The priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and he shall arrange the burnt offering on it and offer the fat portions of the peace offerings up in smoke on it. The fire shall be burning continually on the altar; it shall not [be allowed to] go out.” ‭‭Leviticus‬ ‭6:12-13‬ ‭AMP‬‬

I pray the Lord would mark you this day, and your heart would long for more of Him! May He captivate your being as you offer all of you for all of Him! ❤️‍🔥

The Bride-groom King
Arise, my love.
Open your heart, my darling, deeper still to me.
Will you receive me this dark night?
There is no one else but you, my friend, my equal.
I need you this night to arise and come be with me.
You are my pure, loyal dove, a perfect partner for me.
My flawless one, will you arise?
For my heaviness and tears are more than I can bear.
I have spent myself for you throughout the dark night.
The Sleeping Bride
I have already laid aside my own garments for you.
How could I take them up again
since I’ve yielded my righteousness to yours?
You have cleansed my life and taken me so far.
Isn’t that enough?
My beloved reached into me to unlock my heart.
The core of my very being trembled at his touch.
How my soul melted when he spoke to me!
My spirit arose to open for more of his touch.
As I surrendered to him, I began to sense his fragrance—
the fragrance of his suffering love!
It was the sense of myrrh flowing all through me!
I opened my soul to my beloved, but suddenly he was gone!
And my heart was torn out in longing for him.
I sought his presence, his fragrance,
but could not find him anywhere.
I called out for him, yet he did not answer me.
I will arise and search for him until I find him.
As I walked throughout the city in search of him,
the overseers stopped me as they made their rounds.
They beat me and bruised me until I could take no more.
They wounded me deeply
and removed their covering from me.
Nevertheless, make me this promise, you brides-to-be:
if you find my beloved one,
please tell him I endured all travails for him.
I’ve been pierced through by love,
and I will not be turned aside!
Song of Solomon 5: 1-8

Yielding for Completion

Every time to you say yes to God, every time you yield to the work of the Holy Spirit, every time you look to Jesus you are partnering with the supernatural work of completion. Keep giving the Lord your agreement, He is forming you so that there will be nothing missing, nothing lacking, nothing broken. Oh how He loves us!

“And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you.” Philippians‬ ‭1:6‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

“I pray with great faith for you, because I’m fully convinced that the One who began this gracious work in you will faithfully continue the process of maturing you until the unveiling of our Lord Jesus Christ!” Philippians‬ ‭1:6‬ ‭TPT‬‬

“You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages].” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭26:3-4‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Restoring The Garden

This is the message from my dream yesterday morning ~ when we are willing to risk all, even our life (our will & desires) for the beauty of the Lord then we will be fruitful and bloom in and out of season. Our abandonment to His heart causes us to hit the mark and lead us right to the Promised Land. Where ever the Son shines, there will always be a garden; He is Paradise.

There are inheritances the Lord is trying to restore to you, but it will require risk, faith, and it will be the glimpse of His overwhelming beauty that causes you to leap toward the Promise Land. He is your reward!

“And the Lord shall guide you continually and satisfy you in drought and in dry places and make strong your bones. And you shall be like a watered garden and like a spring of water whose waters fail not. And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of [buildings that have laid waste for] many generations; and you shall be called Repairer of the Breach, Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.” Isaiah‬ ‭58:11-12‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

New Beginnings

Today is 2.2.22, equaling the sum total 8, and the number eight is symbolic of New Beginnings, Restoration and Redemption. And in a full interpretation we have 5 (2’s) counting the unabbreviated year 2022, with a sum total of 10. Grace for the testing, and now a double portion recompense.

After having several very recent dreams on the above topics, I believe today is a culmination point with a message that says in summary these dreams are marking a time and season of new beginnings, even this very day.

Early this morning I had a dream I was helping a young woman I know get dressed and ready on her wedding day. Though she is not in a relationship currently, in the dream it was time and I was there to guide and assist her. The meaning of the her name is “white, fair, blessed ring”. This is a time of blessing to enter into new covenant with the Lord, and also with those who are your new destiny alignments. The point of view in the dream zoomed to her heels where a thick sliver line had been drawn right above the last bend line in the back of the heel near the achilles. I then watched her put her shoes on. This silver line connected to the shoes almost appearing like a drawn on “sling back” attachment to the shoe. There are multiple references in the Bible for the heel being used to describe the most vulnerable area of attack. I believe the Lord is saying He has placed His silver band of redemption over the most vulnerable areas His Bride has been attacked. The Father has drawn the line against the enemies hand, and the Lord will cause what the enemy used to harm you as a “sling back” to quickly propel you forward. Lastly in the dream my attention was checking over the Bride’s makeup. She chose red lip stick, and light browns for eye color. In show business we call this “last looks” right before the cameras start rolling. It is time the Bride of Christ arise for such a time as this; time her speech is marked with boldness, carried by passionate devotion for her Bridegroom King. Her eyes are adorned in a beauty named humility, it is a protective covering for the gates that guard purity of heart.

The Lord has prepared His fair ones, those with purity in heart, action, and speech. Arise now and walk into your new beginning! “The fig tree puts forth and ripens her green figs, and the vines are in blossom and give forth their fragrance. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.”
‭‭Song of Solomon‬ ‭2:13‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

“And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to dwell in.” Isaiah 58:12 ESV

“So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together for good, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.” Romans‬ ‭8:28‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Whom shall I fear?

What can you fear when your eyes are gazing upon the One you love? Your reverence of Him, (fear of the Lord) is the beginning of wisdom, and that wisdom leads to covenant love. Within this covenant is a promise that you can not be forgotten or left behind. Who can hold you captive, when you are captivated by Love?

“And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭10:28‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You have anointed and refreshed my head with oil; My cup overflows.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭23:5‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Go Low

When you know that you know that you know, but everything is coming up against what you know, go low. He is your great confidence in the storm, a humble heart the Lord will not deny, He is near to the broken hearted, a refuge and strength for those who put their trust in Him.

“But as for me, I will wait and hope continually, and I will praise You yet more and more.” Psalm 71:14

It’s Time To Move Closer

The full measure of the goodness of God can only be experienced while remaining in covenant with Him, and faithfulness in covenant is the key to lasting oneness with Him. You must cherish the Lord’s heart also; it is good for you to draw near to Him that you may first know Him, and then tell of His glorious works.

It is time for you to get your own oil, time for your own personal experience with Him. I see for some that you have had many personal experiences but have become satisfied with the distant flames of others. Second hand experiences and encounters are encouraging to hear and can build our faith, though I believe the Lord is asking for more – particularly in this hour. The Lord is asking more from each one of us, leading us into a greater depth of commitment and maturity. For some your fire in the camp has gone out and you continue to try and relight the fire and you are perplexed why you can not start the fire but the Lord would say it is time to move. Keep climbing higher up the mountian of the Lord, the Spirit will lead you and He will come closer still. 🔥

“But as for me, it is good for me to draw near to God; I have made the Lord God my refuge and placed my trust in Him, that I may tell of all Your works.” Psalm 73:28

Draw me Father

We need to know and understand the persons of the Godhead to love Jesus more; their roles, character and attributes will actually lead us to love Jesus.

Under the banner of Love (Song of Solomon 2:4) we are drawn by the Father, wooed by the Spirit, and received by Jesus.

“No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him [giving him the desire to come to Me].” John 6:44 AMP

Ask the Father to draw you nearer to His heart and His ways, ask the Holy Spirit to lead you Jesus, and ask Jesus to encounter you with Himself.

“Until now you have not asked [the Father] for anything in My name; but now ask and keep on asking and you will receive, so that your joy may be full and complete.” ‭‭John‬ ‭16:24‬ ‭AMP‬‬

““ Ask and keep on asking and it will be given to you; seek and keep on seeking and you will find; knock and keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who keeps on asking receives, and he who keeps on seeking finds, and to him who keeps on knocking, it will be opened. ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭7:7-8‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Voices of Approval

We must consider the weight and value we place on one another’s voices, is it higher than the ideas, truths, and Voice of the Lord? There is One Voice that ultimately marks us with approval.

“I have come in My Father’s name and with His power, and you do not receive Me [because your minds are closed]; but if another comes in his own name and with no authority or power except his own, you will receive him and give your approval to an imposter. How can you believe [in Me], when you [seek and] receive glory and approval from one another, and yet you do not seek the glory and approval which comes from the one and only God?” John‬ ‭5:43-44‬ ‭AMP‬‬

In all things we should imitate Christ, and most importantly where He received identity and where He did not. “I do not receive glory and approval from men” John 5:41.

These are perilous times and we are at a critical juncture in history when we can not afford to be led astray by even the slightest bit of human idea or opinion that would potentially deter us from the narrow path. We must eagerly await for the Bridegrooms Voice. “He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands by and listens to him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice.” John 3:29 Here in this friendship is your approval. May joy and peace be yours as you patiently stand by, and eagerly expect His Voice!

In Him We Live

IN HIM WE LIVE AND MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING
(Acts 17:28)

“What a God you are! Your path for me has been perfect! All your promises have proven true.
What a secure shelter for all those
who turn to hide themselves in you!
You are the wrap-around God giving grace to me.
Could there be any other god like you?
You are the only God to be worshiped,
for there is not a more secure foundation
to build my life upon than you.
You have wrapped me in power,
and now you’ve shared with me your perfection.
Through you I ascend to the highest peaks of your glory to stand in the heavenly places, strong and secure in you.” Psalms 18: 30-33 TPT
