Matthew 5:14-16: “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Many have been called daughter, but very few have been chosen because these are the ones that have responded to the call, My call. A call to walk a journey never walked before, a journey to the unknown, a journey of utmost FAITH. This journey is I Who have ordered it, and I alone show you which way to go. It’ a journey of lying your will down, picking up your cross of sufferings and walking My way, the way of the cross, the way to Glory. I am the only way that leads to eternal glory, and very few have chosen this way. Many chose the way that is popular and full of goodies, but its end is doom, eternal damnation.
Now, these ones have been purged, beaten, crushed, pressed,, rejected and have known mostly sorrow, a sorrow I am very well acquainted with, for I carried it and still carry it with you. You have borne it well even though it was heavy and many times you wanted to give up. But I was right there to lift it up with you. You know deep inside you that this as all necessary, that somehow though you are crushed and pressed on every side, you would not faint. You knew the reward in the end even though the reward was not your motivation. Your cry was always one and the same, “Not my will Father, but your will” and on you kept moving.
Now this road comes to a successful end, and end that your eyes have not seen nor your ears heard what I have reserved for you. Your mind cannot comprehend it all. You have cried tears only I could see, and a pain that only I could feel and understand. And you held on, you persevered through it all. Now you are complete lacking nothing, ready for the Master’s use. I say to you, ‘Arise and shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you”. Yes My sons and daughters, it is your time, our light has come and you can no longer be hidden. You are cities on a hill that will shine brightly for all to see.
I have done a new thing never seen before and it is by My hand I’ve done it. You are the NEW THING I have done and you will be My living water in the deserts and wastelands. Many are dry, many thirst and hunger for My name and it will be given to them. Your opposers will drink from your springs as well, for I am the source that never runs dry. What has been your cup of suffering has now led you to a glory you would never achieve any other way. A glory that far outweighs all other glories. This is a glory from above that the world will bow under.
It is time for your recompense, your restoration, your release as a mighty army, no longer dry bones scattered in the wilderness. My army will arise with great power and authority to silence the opposing voices driving many astray. It is a new thing, a new move, a new wave, a wind coming from all four directions of the earth that will bring a mighty change in the hearts and minds of men.
Darkness cannot stand this new wave of light and glory and it has to flee. The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon you to set captives free. You have been set free, released and endowed with My glory. Now go and set others free from bondage that they may come into My light.
