the Lord has been impressing on me that He is coming with His Sword
This drawn Sword speaks of division and judgment
(Matt. 10:34, Rev. 19:15).
The drawing of His Sword will have
many applications across many spheres, but
for the purpose of this post I am speaking only of His drawn Sword as
it applies to the liberation of His Bride.
Christ, you are not who you think you are. The Lord is calling
you out from the dark shadow of lies that has enveloped your life for
far too long.
How can you
shine when shrouded in darkness? Living under a dark cloud of
lies has become your way of life: lies that you have been
lulled into believing about yourself and have ceased even
questioning. So familiar have these deceiving lies become to
you that you no longer discern them for what they are: you have
embraced them, taken them unto yourself and clothed yourself in
them. Some of them have been put upon you by the world.
Many of them have been subtly laid upon you by the religion of the
flesh masquerading as truth. But all lies ultimately emanate
from the father of lies.
The Lord is
coming to His Bride with His Sword drawn, not in judgment, but in
compassion, mercy and deep love. His Sword is drawn against the
layers of lies that have enveloped and weighed her down over many
years and many seasons. He is coming to set her free so she may
live and walk as the manifestation of Truth¹, for He is Truth.
hear Him saying:
My Bride she is not who she thinks she is. She thinks she is
weak, but I say she is strong. She thinks she is timid, but I
say she is bold. She thinks she has no voice to speak up but I
say I will give her My voice and she will speak. Yes, she will
roar and those given ears to hear shall hear and My Sword of truth
shall pierce their hearts. She thinks she is powerless but I am
coming to strengthen her with might in her inner man and she shall
run and not grow weary and walk and not faint, for this power of Mine
is not of this world ².
Tell my Bride
we are crossing over. Though she has lived in the shadow
of the Cross and has not denied my embrace there, for those who will
receive it, now resurrection life will become your garment, says the
Lord. You who have willingly worn my Blood shall also wear Me
now as your Armour³. Formidable you are! says the Lord.
“Formidable” is the name I give you now. And “fearless”
is the word I place upon you.
says the Lord, you are not who you think you are. But I shall
now deal with the lies that have weighed upon you and hindered you
and shamed you. Do not fear My Sword. It comes as Truth⁴.
It shall peel off and divide from you every putrid layer of the lies
that have been burying you for so long. And you shall know who
you are. And you shall know Who I am. And you shall know
who we are in our Oneness. And the Truth shall make you free,
and so shall you walk, in freedom to be all I have called you to be.
There are those
of you who have grown comfortable and will wish to remain in alliance
with the lies you have accepted about yourself. In love I warn
you this is not a time to test Me. I seek a willing Bride. Come and let Me remove all that mars your true beauty and I will
indeed show you who you are.”
