Wind and Fire

Matthew 3:12 (DARBY) whose winnowing fan [is] in his hand, and he shall thoroughly purge his threshing-floor, and shall gather his wheat into the garner, but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.

Beloved, the wind of My Spirit shall separate the wheat from the chaff, the holy from the unholy, the pure from the profane. So that only that which is holy may remain. I AM the Refiner – a roaring fire – cleansing and purifying.

My presence begets change. You cannot help but be moved. You cannot help but step away from that which is unholy and unrighteous, for in My presence the stark contrast between darkness and light is made blindingly clear. So allow the wind of My Spirit and the fire of My presence to do their work and bring forth purity and beauty in your heart.

Allow My Spirit to Saturate You

Song of Solomon 4:15 (VOICE) My bride, you are a fountain in a garden, a well of life-giving water flowing down from Lebanon.

Beloved, you are a well of life – deep and true – your capacity great, your water fresh and pure. Allow the life within you to gurgle up and overflow bringing life to all those around you. Tender shoots of green and brilliant colors of wildflower life surrounding you.

Feed on Me in our times alone. Allow Me to nourish and replenish you, beloved, that your well will never run dry. Wait on Me. Soak in My presence. Abide in Me. Allow My Spirit to overtake you and saturate your soul.

Silk: His Abiding Presence

This silk combination was the inspiration behind what we’re calling the “multi-silk words,” which are silk letters that encompass more than one silk so they include the individual letters as well as a combined word and new name for the combined use. This concept came about when I created a couple pairs of double layer flags and had to consider how the silk letter should be formatted. Since then the idea has extended into mismatched pairs of flags (another multi-silk word for Eyes Wide Open will be getting shared shortly) and silks where multiple silk styles might be combined like a quilt or even a custom tallit.

Enforcing Your Claim

Joshua 1:3 (AMP) I have given you every place on which the sole of your foot treads, just as I promised to Moses.

Beloved, you are claiming territory for Me. As you exude My light, every place your foot shall step forces darkness to flee. My angelic hosts enforce your claim as you walk – reclaiming step-by-step, forcing back the darkness that seeks to encroach.

You walk in might for My presence surrounds you. So be intentional and unafraid, letting your light shine that My glory may be made manifest in the earth.

Cultivate a Place for Me to Dwell

Exodus 20:20 (VOICE) Moses: Don’t be afraid. These powerful manifestations are God’s way of instilling awe and fear in you so that you will not sin; He is testing you for your own good.

Beloved, be mindful not to allow familiarity to breed contempt. I AM still God. I love you and cherish intimacy with you, I’ve provided grace for you and granted you forgiveness, but at no point have I relaxed My standards on what is good and what is evil.

The enemy will tempt you to flirt with the line between sin and what is permissible, but if your heart truly knows who I AM and you love Me, you will not want to grieve Me by following the letter of the law rather than the spirit. Know My heart and strive to be like Me. Cultivate a place for Me to dwell within you.

Come Soar in My Love

Exodus 13:22 (GW) The column of smoke was always in front of the people during the day. The column of fire was always there at night.

Beloved, I AM always with you and I will never leave you. Abide with Me. Absorb the peace found in My presence and let your spirit take flight. As you soar with Me, feel the wind of My Spirit. Let Me bring you higher and higher. Trust Me.

Place your hand in Mine, beloved. Let Me carry you away. Behold, you are beautiful My love and you have captured My heart. You have captivated My gaze. You are the apple of My eye, the center of my world. Just as young lovers cannot get enough of each other’s presence, so I long to be with you. Will you abide with Me? Come soar in My love.

Far More With You

Exodus 14:19 (VOICE) God’s messenger, who had been out front leading the people of Israel, moved to protect the rear of the company; the cloud pillar moved with him from the front to the back of them.

Beloved, I AM your covering. My heavenly hosts stand at the ready – guarding and protecting – alert and ready to execute My command. Our desire is to protect you from that which would seek your harm. I AM on your side and the hosts of heaven act on My behalf.

Whether you physically see My presence before you, I AM always with you. My hosts ever around you. Truly, beloved, there are far more with you than against you. Ask Me to open your eyes that you might see. Continue reading “Far More With You”

Beautiful Sacrifice

Song of Solomon 8:6 (VOICE) Set me as a seal over your heart; wear me as an emblem on your arm For love is as strong as death, and jealousy is as relentless as the grave. Love flares up like a blazing fire, a very ardent flame.

Beloved, the depths of My love for you is truly unfathomable. My passion burns brightly for you, so brightly its glory fills the earth. May My passion ignite and stir your own, beloved. Match your passion to Mine. Allowing yourself to hold nothing back.

May your ardent affection cause you to pour out yourself completely as a living sacrifice before Me. I will receive you, beloved. The flames of My love consuming your beautiful sacrifice – so sweet and pleasant before Me.

Fill Yourself with the Unshakable Understanding of Who I AM

Revelation 4:2 (TLB) And instantly I was in spirit there in heaven and saw—oh, the glory of it!—a throne and someone sitting on it!

Beloved, quiet your soul, quiet your spirit. Let Me sweep you away – whether to catch you up into the heavenlies or simply have you rest in My presence. Meet with Me. Be saturated in My glory. Allow yourself to be completely overwhelmed and undone by My presence and the full saturating love you feel from Me.

Fill yourself with the unshakable understanding of Who I AM. For if you fully and truly receive that understanding, you cannot operate in fear because you know the One who loves you is greater and higher than any other (by far). Of whom shall you be afraid? I AM on your side. Be overwhelmed by My glory and walk in the full confidence of one who knows they have nothing to fear.

I Will Meet You in Your Dreams

Psalm 3:5 (VOICE) I lie down at night and fall asleep. I awake in the morning—healthy, strong, vibrant—because the Eternal supports me.

Beloved, I AM with you always. Rest in Me. As you yield to Me even in your sleep, I will meet you there for times of refreshing and impartation. Be ready to receive. Come with your heart prepared to meet with Me. Truly you cannot begin to imagine all that I want to share with you there, beloved.

Be ready to be commissioned. Be ready to be mantled. Be ready to be radically and completely healed and transformed. Come ready to lower your guard (you don’t need it with Me anyway), and your logic won’t help you here – My ways are not your ways. Simply trust and yield. Take Me at My word and receive.
