As you walk along the narrow path I lead you, then you take time to stop and rest awhile.
You must always remember to kindle a fire, to catch the fire of illumination along the journey. With this fire, you will have needed illumination, warmth and sustenance as I provide along the way. You will behold the fire and look around at those who are illuminated with you. Yes and new faces too, those who have caught up with embers blue.
You shall notice and begin to take on corporate illumination, provision and rest on a whole new level. For knowing those who labor among you, will take on a very real meaning; for these you shall know face to face; heart to heart.
The fire is ignited because every flame shall radiate from the camp fire on the faces of those who enjoy the warmth and provision it brings.
Predators fear the fire and only look at you from a far. The light of revelation burns up hell’s deceptions.
My people will learn to carry the fire on the path I decree. I shall give enough light through My Word to take the next steps of faith. My Word is a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path.
I will provide and meet with you a long the way, and others will be brought into the increasing light. The darkness has no chance to increase for the light reveals all that is there and dispels it. Similarly, as you gaze into water and face answers to face, so is the heart from man to man.
Iron sharpens iron. Yes spar with them; those who are very well suited for sparing. In doing so, you will cause My Word to be sharper than ever before. You have asked Me for this sharpening and I AM doing it, says the Lord.
Do not fear the opponent, for these shall help teach and prepare you for another advanced level. I have chosen them for this very purpose. I waste nothing!
Even in these ordered lessons you shall be a weapon in My hand, as a double edged sword. For I and My Word are forever settled in heaven; I and My Word are one.
You shall speak and your tongue shall be as a double edged sword used for battle. You shall communicate and My Words shall be articulated in a manner to bring light to the matter.
The enemy fears these up and coming ones. The enemy thought they were out like a light, but these in secret, beheld My face in a much brighter light as it shone from My Word alone. A bruised reed I will not break nor smoking flax be quenched.
Some may fear coming near, but be not afraid for it is I, My dear! I AM the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; the God that never changes.
I AM the same from yesterday, today and forever. The God who is no respecter of persons! You shall be amazed today and to come! Yes I say, there is much more to come!
Some things you have seen so small but in this season of illumination, you shall be amazed by so little, but I shall increase it exponentially. As you behold My glory, you shall be changed into that same image from glory to glory, says the Lord!
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
