THE TIME OF PREPARATION & CONSECRATION IS NOW UPON US.
We are in a unique moment right now. And it is full of purpose. I pray you see that this moment we have been given (this stillness) is not a waste of time, but you understand it is a time of preparation & consecration unto the Lord for His purpose.
Last year the Lord was showing me out of Joel 2 that there is a great, deep work of
PREPARATION BEFORE THE GREAT OUTPOURING OF THE SPIRITS POWER.
Preparation and Consecration (setting ourselves totally apart to God) ARE NECESSARY, IT MUST TAKE PLACE FIRST & IT IS WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW.
THE RESTORATION OF ALL THINGS!
I keep hearing the Lord lately speak aboout RESTORATION.
There is a RESTORATION taking place right now on EVERY LEVEL. Individually & personally, in homes and families, in His body the Church and in nations of the world. It’s a work taking place on every scale.
While there is a PLAGUE in the nations (Joel had the plague of locusts remember?) The Lord is WORKING RESTORATION RIGHT NOW TO THOSE WHO BELONG TO HIM. We can be sure the Lord is doing HIS WORK RIGHT NOW! Amen.
What is restoration? It is the act of bringing things back and re-establishing things to their former state, former owner and condition!
We are being restored FULLY back to the LORD and HIS DESIRES!
Now remember, God’s restoration brings us back to FORMER GLORY— PLUS MORE!
But I also kept hearing the Lord say and emphasise: “I am restoring former glories.”
Former glories are the things we are founded upon as the people of God.
It makes sense that before GREATER LATTER GLORY COMES we be re-established to our FORMER GLORIES FIRST.
THE RESTORATION OF HIS DWELLING PLACE.
During the Passover time the Holy Spirit kept showing me the Cross, His Sacrifice, and the deep revelation of Jesus’ Blood! (Hebrews 9&10) The Lord was showing me from Revelation 5: HE IS CENTRE.
IN HEAVEN BUT ALSO IN EARTH. HIS SACRIFICE IS CENTRE. THE LAMB SLAIN AND CONQUERING KING IS CENTRE. AND HE MUST BE RESTORED TO CENTRE IN ALL OUR GATHERINGS! AMEN.
I believe this is how the Lord is restoring His House right now, so that He can re-enter as King in our Midst and we become a true dwelling place of His abiding presence:
The sacrifice must stand central in our gatherings, in our worship and teaching!
The sacrifice of Jesus and His blood is the only acceptable element to GOD for our forgiveness of sin and of making us ONE with Him. It is perfect! WE CANNOT EVEN HAVE RESURRECTION WITHOUT THE SACRIFICE! It is CENTRE! (Revelation 5)
The Blood of Jesus must be seen and applied by us His people, in a way where we truly believe we are saved by “Nothing but the Blood of Jesus”.
The restoration of Communion, eating at His table is also being restored to His church in a deep, deep way. It is not a once a month thing we do. It is a part of our regular worship times before the Lord. We must understand we partake of His body and blood to truly be One with Jesus. He feeds us real food and drink. (John 6)
WORSHIP IS UNTO JESUS!
Worship is being RE-ESTABLISHED, RESTORED. Again, worship is UNTO JESUS. It is not to or for the church. We are the ones giving the worship! We are not being entertained. We are ENGAGING OUR HEARTS AND SPIRITS TO SEE JESUS.
The picture in Revelation 5 is that He is Centre and everyone surrounds Him! This is what our worship times should look like.
I am a worshipper, but not just because I can sing. I am a worshipper because I SEEK!
The Lord is looking for those who SEEK HIM. Who seek to KNOW & UNDERSTAND HIM. (Psalm 14)
This is the mark of a true worshipper. True Worship is about SEEKING HIM IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH. (John 4)
We need to worship Him in and by the Holy Spirit and we need to worship the Jesus scripture reveals!
In this way we SEEK & BEHOLD the reality of Jesus in our worship times.
We sing— but mostly we SEEK. We declare to SOMEONE. We BEHOLD SOMEONE.
And this is the RESTORATION OF TRUE WORSHIP TAKING PLACE. Let the TRUE WORSHIPPERS ARISE! (See my former post from January 2020)
THE BOOK OF COVENANTS.
I believe again with all that is in me, there is and will be a restoration of the Book of Covenants.
Every time the Lord restores His temple, His house in scripture, He restores the FULL TEACHING OF HIS COVENANT WORD TO HIS PEOPLE.
The book of covenants means the WHOLE SCRIPTURE. We are in COVENANT with a COVENANT KEEPING GOD.
Yes, we are in the NEW COVENANT. Sealed by the blood of Jesus.
But I am in covenant relationship with the One who is revealed to me in His entire Word. His Word is 66 books!
It is the covenant that began with our Father of faith Abraham, and continued through Israel, and is revealed through every single book of scripture!
In Luke 24 When Jesus appeared to His disciples after His resurrection, He says He had to fulfil all that was said of Him from Moses (first 5 books) the Prophets & the Psalms. That is the entire old covenant! Hallelujah!
Let us be RESTORED TO THE FULL BODY OF SCRIPTURE and ALL THESE THINGS SO THE KING CAN ENTER IN GLORIOUSLY EXALTED IN OUR MIDST AND MOVE AS HE DESIRES. Amen! Come in Jesus.
TAKE THIS MOMENT TO BE RESTORED IN ALL THESE THINGS, & BECOME HIS DWELLING PLACE.
I believe that as we seek the Lord right now, we will be being restored in Him & to Him like never before.
I pray you have times every day set apart to the Lord to seek Him in scripture, to seek Him in worship.
Ask to behold Him in the One who knows Him best, Holy Spirit who lives inside of you.
And I pray you take the body and blood of Jesus with new restored eyes of wonder and gratefulness.
We are made one with Him only by His sacrifice, His Cross, His blood.
And may He bring you back to Himself in new measures. Seek and wait upon Him, and watch what He will do next!
