Yesterday, I clearly heard The LORD say, “Everyone is prophesying revival and outpouring, and so shall it be in My Timing, in My Way.
But, beloved, at this moment in time, the Revival is not out there somewhere, it is in YOU!
I have told you that a great Heart Change must take place before The Great Awakening. I AM bringing My Church to the end of self, and delivering them from the spirit of fear that is working self preservation in their hearts.
I AM drawing My Remnant Bride unto Myself, to a place of togetherness and unity fostered by My Love in their hearts, and just as Paul mentioned in 1 Corinthians 1:10, I desire that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and same judgment.
The spirit of contention in rooted in the desire to be right, so let no argument arise out of a mindset to be in control, but submit yourselves one to another in love, for I, The LORD God, AM Love.
I AM able to read your heart, your thoughts and words before they are spoken. Always remember, they shall know you by your love.”
“You are so intimately aware of me Lord. You read my heart like an open book and you know the words that I’m about to speak before I even start a sentence! You know every step I will take before my journey even begins. You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way, and in kindness you follow behind me to spare me from the harm of my past.” Psalm 139:3-5 TPT.
Paul, in 1 Corinthians 1:10, speaks to The Church about divisions, and in the next verse, he mentions he had heard there were some contentions among them.
“10 Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all [a]speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 11 For it has been declared to me concerning you, my brethren, by those of Chloe’s household, that there are [c]contentions among you,” 1 Corinthians 1:10-11 NKJV.
As I have brought my heart before The LORD in this season, I have asked The LORD, to shine His light into my heart and reveal any place that I am falling short of a full transformation of HIS LOVE being my identity for all the world to see.
May the reality of His love shake us and melt our hearts with His lovingkindness.
Then, The LORD said, “Above all else, write this on your heart, My love in you should draw all men to you for it is a light within you.
They shall know you by your love and kindness. Kindness melts hard hearts and love draws all men to me.
Remember your actions speak louder than your words. Let your actions paint a picture of what love is.
Never give in to envy or comparing yourself to another. Let no one provoke you to anger or strive for you are my instrument of peace and they shall know you by your love and the peace that fills their heart in your presence,” says The Father,
“Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love,” 1 John 4:8 NIV.
As I pondered these thoughts from 1 Corinthians 13, and thought about that Love does not parade itself, and is not puffed up, and how love suffers long and bears all things, I began to sense The Fear of The LORD take over my mind, will, and emotions.
As always, I am incredibly aware that we do not know our own heart. I keep asking The LORD to remind me, ‘He reads my heart like an open book’.
I am sharing this from 1 Corinthians 13:4-13 TPT,
“Love is large and incredibly patient. Love is gentle and consistently kind to all. It refuses to be jealous when blessing comes to someone else. Love does not brag about one’s achievements nor inflate its own importance. Love does not traffic in shame and disrespect, nor selfishly seek its own honor. Love is not easily irritated or quick to take offense. Love joyfully celebrates honesty and finds no delight in what is wrong. Love is a safe place of shelter, for it never stops believing the best for others. Love never takes failure as defeat, for it never gives up.
Love never stops loving. It extends beyond the gift of prophecy, which eventually fades away. It is more enduring than tongues, which will one day fall silent. Love remains long after words of knowledge are forgotten. Our present knowledge and our prophecies are but partial, but when love’s perfection arrives, the partial will fade away. When I was a child, I spoke about childish matters, for I saw things like a child and reasoned like a child. But the day came when I matured, and I set aside my childish ways.
For now we see but a faint reflection of riddles and mysteries as though reflected in a mirror, but one day we will see face-to-face. My understanding is incomplete now, but one day I will understand everything, just as everything about me has been fully understood. Until then, there are three things that remain: faith, hope, and love — yet love surpasses them all. So above all else, let love be the beautiful prize for which you run.”
Yes, may we let LOVE be the beautiful prize for which we run.
Indeed, Revival begins in us. Again, the Revival is not out there somewhere…. It Is in you!
