You Will Shine
A Word Of Encouragement

Hello brethren, I received another word of encouragement for the Remnant just now during worship. In addition, I’d also like share with you all, a personal thought…and that is that, like many of you, I hear these words or read the words of others on here (444news) and though the messages may convict me or even quicken my spirit, I am often at a loss when it comes to the Lords timing. So many times over the past 10 years, it felt like He was coming ‘that day’. Other times, it feels like He is still years away. This is a great and marvellous mystery and no doubt meant to keep us watchful but it can sometimes also be disheartening. Some of the words He gives me make me feel like He’s coming any day and then when that day never comes, it leaves me feeling discouraged. I know those whom He has called, feel this way from time to time and I just want to share with you that, as your fellow solider in Christ, I’ve recently realized that our progress (within ourselves) can be a great ‘marker’ as to His coming. We know that He is perfecting us and that, which does not get completed beforehand, He will perfect upon His arrival. But finally, I am beginning to feel within myself the signs of what it means to be strengthened and even established, as is stated in 1Peter 5:10: “After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.”
Each of these four virtues are seemingly being individually (separately) processed within me, each in their own time and way, and though none are completely complete, I am finally beginning to see the changes (results) inside of me. For all of us, those changes are of different aspects of our identity but all had weakness that required these virtues to be processed within us.
I marvel at His greatness that even though we are all in this process of refinement, He will choose a day, no matter where each one of us is in that process and he will begin to confirm, and establish us. And I specify only these two because I believe the other two which are strengthen and perfect us were happening already. I believe this confirming and establishing will be the birth of our confidence.
I guess what I’m trying to say with encouragement in my heart for us all is maybe we can know just how close His coming is based on how close we are to being perfected, strengthened, confirmed and established. For so long, so many years, I always felt like I was lagging behind (everyone else). Like the last in the class or like the one straggler at the end of a marathon, coming to the finish line completely alone with no one else behind me. And so, then, the way I see it, if you’re all ahead of me, I will rejoice, for perhaps that means it’s finally time.
God bless you all. I pray and hold each of you up to the Lord that you will continue to hold on to His hand and never let go.
Here’s the word of encouragement He gave me tonight for us all…
My daughter, I Am here, write My words,
Children of My blessings, you have prepared. For so long, you have walked through the flames. I have been by your side with every step. I have always been with you. Even when you didn’t recognize Me. I love each of you with an everlasting love. You are My jewels. I have refined you My jewels. I have placed you in the fire, I have sanded, I have polished. Now I make you shine. You will shine. So so bright, they will see you from afar. They will wonder, what is this bright light off in the distance? They will run toward you. They will witness My shining glory emanating from and through you. They will stand in awe. They will fall at your feet, for My presence will bring glorious weight upon them, they won’t be able to stand. In My presence, many, so very many will proclaim Me and will repent and give their lives to Me. They will see you as a holy priest. You are My kings and priests. No evil will be able to even come near. They will run in the opposite direction, but those who long to be set free, will indeed be freed from the shackles of the enemy. My children, oh if you could see how very close we were to this moment of My glory rising in the earth. Do you feel My peace? You will feel My peace increasing now with each new day. Look forward children, look forward to your day of salvation and deliverance, for it is upon you. Pray! Pray! Pray! Fast! Fast! Fast! And watch as I bring My glory and pour into those who have persevered.
To those who are thinking of giving up because the battle has become too hard to bear, I say to you, this is the last lap. Don’t give up now. Don’t give up. Hold onto Me. My grace is sufficient for you. These are the last of your sufferings. For ahead of you is blessings. It’s your turn. It’s your time. It is upon you. I AM here child. Don’t let go. Hold onto Me. I AM preparing you. Only allow My will to be done and you will see your victory. My children, you are the carriers of the blessed hope this world is waiting for. Keep going. No matter what. Keep going. You feel the change. You feel the shift happening in you. You feel it coming. Be brave and stand on the Rock. I AM the Rock. I will never leave you. Hold on. Your final exam is here and you will pass.
Amen and amen
Your King of Glory
