Are you anticipating what is about to come forth? Just as new parents eagerly await the crowning of their baby as she enters the world, I am anticipating the crowning of My Bride! She is coming forth now and nothing can stop her from emerging. Though the birthing process has been difficult, she is cleansed and washed in My Blood.
She is a sight to behold! She is now beginning to reflect My beauty and My wonder! All will be astonished when they see the Bride, for she will look just like My Son. She will break forth with a cry of jubilation for her Bridegroom King, for she is only drawn to the Light of the world. Her lungs are filled with My Spirit breath, releasing life as she breaks through the resistance.
She has come out with eyes reflecting her fierce and loyal love for her King! Her eyes are locked on His, only responding to His voice, unmovable in her devotion. So, look up, My Bride! You are coming forth, beautiful and radiant, through the power of the Cross! For surely, He is coming back to receive you in power and glory!
Ezekiel 16:8-12 New International Version (NIV) 8 “‘Later I passed by, and when I looked at you and saw that you were old enough for love, I spread the corner of my garment over you and covered your naked body. I gave you my solemn oath and entered into a covenant with you, declares the Sovereign Lord, and you became mine.
9 “‘I bathed you with water and washed the blood from you and put ointments on you. 10 I clothed you with an embroidered dress and put sandals of fine leather on you. I dressed you in fine linen and covered you with costly garments. 11 I adorned you with jewelry: I put bracelets on your arms and a necklace around your neck, 12 and I put a ring on your nose, earrings on your ears and a beautiful crown on your head.
Revelation 12:1-12 The Passion Translation (TPT) The Woman Clothed with the Sun
1 Then an astonishing miracle-sign appeared in heaven. I saw a woman clothed with the brilliance of the sun, and the moon was under her feet. She was wearing on her head a victor’s crown of twelve stars. 2 She was pregnant and was crying out in labor pains, in the agony of giving birth.
3 Consider this: another astonishing miracle-sign appeared in heaven! I saw a huge, fiery-red dragon with ten horns and seven heads, each wearing a royal crown. He was wearing seven royal crowns. 4 The dragon’s massive tail swept across the sky and dragged away a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. And the dragon crouched before the woman who was about to give birth—poised to devour the baby the moment it was born.
5 She gave birth to a man-child who is about to rule and shepherd every nation with an iron scepter, and her son was caught up to God and to his throne. 6 The woman fled into the wilderness, where God had already prepared a safe place for her, and there they nourished her for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
The Dragon Defeated
7 Then a terrible war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the great dragon. The dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But the dragon did not have the power to win and they could not regain their place in heaven. 9 So the great dragon was thrown down once and for all. He was the serpent, the ancient snake called the devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole earth. He was cast down into the earth and his angels along with him.
10 Then I heard a triumphant voice in heaven proclaiming:
“Now salvation and power are set in place, and the kingdom reign of our God and the ruling authority of his Anointed One are established.
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who relentlessly accused them day and night before our God, has now been defeated—cast out once and for all!
11 They conquered him completely through the blood of the Lamb and the powerful word of his testimony. They triumphed because they did not love and cling to their own lives, even when faced with death.
12 So rejoice, you heavens, and every heavenly being! But woe to the earth and the sea, for the devil has come down to you with great fury, because he knows his time is short.”
