“I have set before you an open door. Why do you stand between and betwixt? Do not fear where I AM taking you. No man will be able to stop you unless you let them. You have but little strength but I AM showing myself strong against those who are your enemies.
As you have said, “I have no strength to do this” yet you shall be victorious, you have kept my word and haven’t denied my name. Those who have pretended to be My people and lie, they will know that I love thee.
I have sought for you in our secret place. Where is the intimacy, the time you once could not wait for? I AM jealous and I miss our quality time. You must plan as your enemy will try to hinder that time.
In that place of intimacy you know My heart and mind. In that place I abide with you and I speak secrets and share things to those who are fully given unto me.
Trust is a big issue. How can I trust you to minister to others when you haven’t been there for me? You must TAKE time, not make time. You must plan and not let anyone or anything keep you from your beloved. Guard and keep our relationship as the most important part of your life.
I created you for My pleasure, for my purposes. I desire to walk with you in the cool of the day. I have emotions just as you, and my feelings are hurt when you walk away from me. You go everywhere else except coming to me.
Keep me as the lover of your soul. My heart breaks when I see there is no time for me. Yes, I AM eternal God, but you are my finest and best creation. I did not lie or beg you to come with Me. You accepted my free gift. Why now do you crowd me out of your lives and business? Why don’t you respect My boundaries? Why do you idolize your phones and friends?
I miss our times of innocence romping through the fields and flowers beloved. Oh how I desire to spend intimacy with those that love and choose Me.
From that deep relationship in Me comes the overflow you want. As you choose to know Me in a deeper way, My nature and character will spring up like an artesian well. In your life, no one can truly know Me unless they see my evidence in you. Beloved, the two become one is a mystery, but it shouldn’t be a mystery with you.
Are you ashamed to let others know your busy, when they want your time? Do you love me and spend time with ME? I chose to limit myself in the lives of My people as they know My Word and learn about me. It doesn’t take long once you truly know a person to see what they are after. Pull away My love, pull away!
Learn to respect My boundaries and others.
Can you wait one hour? You walk around and get side tracked! I AM here to be your lover, friend and I want to share secrets and just know you!
I see how prayer with Me has changed into another thing. You use to trust Me and now you depend on each other, instead of coming before Me yourself. Even prayer meetings can be turned into an idol when you no longer depend on your own personal intimate time with Me,” says the LORD.
“Why do I have to continually remind you to come closer? Yes, I want you to be child like, however there are times I want to share deep things with those whom I trust. I shouldn’t have to ask.
You must practice My presence. Queen Esther practiced the Kings presence and was honored and because of her obedience to her King, she saved all of Israel.
You have been held back for this particular season and hidden. I see your frustrations. I know you see others moving on a different path and wonder why your way is hidden. You have been held back seemingly forever, however I have saved you as a weapon in My arsenal for My time. Take no offenses, for this is My purpose and plan. Take no offenses of those who are no longer part of your particular path.
There are those pockets of people coming out of hiding and coming from such heartache however, these have learned, to die is to live. Jealousy is not a threat to these as I have refined them through time and by skimming off the lee’s.
There will be select ones who will be able to change and scale various levels of the mountain of the LORD at will. These will have a global view and able to meet and understand people where they are at. Bless these beloved, the cost and the loss many can never comprehend Yes, plus these know the urgency of the quest.”
“And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; I know they works; behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it; for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou has kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God; and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches,” Revelation 3:7-13 KJV.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
