Word For Today: December 12, 2021: The Spirit and the Bride say, COME!:
This Christmas I will remember and be eternally grateful for the miracle of Jesus birth, but my eyes are looking for the miracle of today in His return as He is now and for unfolding of His Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
My heart leaps for joy as 2nd Thessalonians Chapter 1:10 gets fulfilled in our ears, "in that day, HE WILL COME.. TO BE SEEN.. IN HIS SAINTS.. AND TO BE MARVELED BY ALL WHO BELIEVE."
Precious Saints, To us who believe in Him, He is not revealing Himself to us in 2021 -22 as the Babe born in Bethlehem or even as just our Savior who died on the cross at Calvary.
He is revealing Himself to us as the LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH, THE ROOT OF DAVID, THE FINISHING OMEGA GOD, The God who was, and is, and WHO NOW IS TO COME!
THAT BABY BORN IN THE MANGER IS NOW AND FOREVER BEING REVEALED TO US IN OUR DAY AS THE KING OF KINGS, THE LORD OF LORDS, AND THE KING OF GLORY!
HE IS REVEALING HIMSELF WITH A NEW VOICE, THE VOICE OF THE WAR TRUMPET AS FOUND IN REVELATION CHAPTER 1 AND 4.
HE IS DECLARING THE FULLNESS OF WHO HE IS TO US TODAY AS THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA, THE BEGINNING AND THE END, THE FIRST AND THE LAST. THE FINISHER IS HERE!
For me, I hear the call of Psalm 24, "who can come up the mountain of the Lord? I hear this is a generation that will seek His face. I hear the voice of the Lord saying, "lift up your head oh ye gates, and lift up your heads you age abiding doorways and let the KING OF GLORY COME IN!
THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON MORE THAN EVER I HEAR THE CALL OF GOD SAY, WHO IS THIS KING OF GLORY? I HEAR THE REVERBERATING SOUNDS OF THE FIRST AND THE LAST DECLARING IN TRUMPET SOUND.
THE LORD STRONG AND MIGHTY, THE LORD STRONG IN BATTLE. WHO IS THIS KING OF GLORY, THE LORD OF HOST, HE IS THE KING OF GLORY.
Beloved, Psalm 24 burns in every fiber of my being this Christmas and desire to see Jesus in the Glory that He had before the foundation of the earth as He appears to John in Revelation chapter 1.
That is the fullness of Jesus I desire to see and know in 2021 and beyond this Christmas. My heart cries to be so 'in love" with Him as His bride and He my Bridegroom King.
No other love, No other place, no positions, no titles, no working for Him, just Him and Him alone do I desire and I seek. Like the Shulammite Bride, I cry, "I am my beloveds, and His desires are towards me." This is the Jesus I seek this Christmas and beyond.
Beloved of the Lord, Let our hearts desire this Christmas is to see Him and know Him in the glory that He had before the foundation of the world and to be one with Him as He prayed we would be in John chapter 17.
I say, Yes Lord, be it unto me even as thou has spoken:
Let this word and mind be in us as it was in Jesus. The Spirit and the Bride say, "Come Lord Jesus." COME!
20 Neither for these alone do I pray [it is not for their sake only that I make this request], but also for all those who will ever come to believe in (trust in, cling to, rely on) Me through their word and teaching,
21 That they all may be one, [just] as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe and be convinced that You have sent Me.
22 I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one [even] as We are one:
23 I in them and You in Me, in order that they may become one and perfectly united, that the world may know and [definitely] recognize that You sent Me and that You have loved them [even] as You have loved Me.
24 Father, I desire that they also whom You have entrusted to Me [as Your gift to Me] may be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory, which You have given Me [Your love gift to Me]; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
This is the GLORY OF JESUS THAT MUST BE REVEALED IN US AND TO US THIS CHRISTMAS AND BEYOND.
THIS CHRISTMAS THE FULLNESS OF ISAIAH 60:1-3 IS MANIFESTING IN OUR MIDST.
1 Arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you—rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!
2 For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you.
3 And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.
THIS CHRISTMAS LET US NOT JUST LOOK BACK TO HIS BIRTH, LET US LOOK FORWARD TO HIS APPEARING TO US, AND THEN HIS COMING TO RULE UPON PLANET EARTH FOR A THOUSAND YEARS!
LET US BE THAT GENERATION IN PSALM 24 THAT WILL SEEK HIS FACE AND RECEIVE THE BLESSINGS OF THE LORD FOR DOING SO. LET US LIFT UP OUR HEADS THIS CHRISTMAS TO HEAR HIS VOICE SAY TO US PERSONALLY.
LIFT UP YOUR HEAD OH YE GATES, AND LET THE KING OF GLORY COME IN. IN THE PAST WE WERE TO MAKE OUR HEART A MANGER FOR HIM TO COME, BUT NOW WE MUST MAKE OUR HEART A NEW WINESKIN OF HIS KINGDOM SO WE CAN BE FILLED WITH HIS GLORY.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!
