I have been impressed by the date today: 7/17. I heard in my spirit that I should look up the Biblical significance of these numbers. “The number seven is one of the most significant numbers of the Bible because it is the number of spiritual perfection. It is the number which is stamped on every work of God” (www.astrovera.com/bible-religion/176-bible-number-7.html). It was on the seventh day that God rested from all His work of creation, and even now, we His Bride, are groaning for the eternal rest promised to us, when we shall see Him as He is! Likewise, the number 17 carries on the concept of completion: “In the Bible the number 17 symbolizes ‘overcoming the enemy’ and ‘complete victory.’ God overcame the sins of rebellious humans when he began to flood the earth through rain on the 17th of the second Hebrew month. Noah’s ark and its eight passengers rested on the mountains of Ararat on the 17th of the seventh month…Jesus Christ gained a complete victory over death and the grave when God resurrected him near sunset on Nisan 17.”
My daughter, I have loved you with an everlasting love. Finally, the great moment of fruition has come! The moment when eternity meets time! Oh, how full of joy my heart is at this moment, when I come face to face with my Bride, for whom I died and poured out my blood. Now, sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, you will be fully mine. You are betrothed to me, my Bride, and the Holy Spirit is your engagement ring, but now, we are entering the process of rehearsal. The wedding is just around the corner! I am rejoicing over you, my darling Bride, with loud singing! You will stand by my side as we consummate the fullness of time. You will be my help meet, even as I pictured this role in a bride to her husband. Together, we will harvest the final harvest of souls. Look, do you not see it: a field as great as the sea, golden with ripened grain, waving in the winds of my Spirit! It is ready for reaping! Come away with me, my Bride, my lovely virgin. Come and learn of me and be filled with all the fullness of God, that you might have all power to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:18-19). Rejoice in me, my Bride, my lovely virgin! I come for you now!
