I am lifting the veil, My Bride. Your true face is ready to be revealed. You have come through a long season of preparation, soaking in My presence. You have learned to walk in authenticity and lean on your Beloved. You have taken off the mask of pretense and religion. Now you have learned to be completely dependent upon Me.
No more hypocrisy. No more hiding. No more guilt. No more shame. You have brought everything that you were carrying to the Cross and laid it down. Now you are walking in gratitude, love and humility, beckoning others to follow the One you love and adore.
For no amount of good works could ever buy My love and forgiveness. It is free to you but has cost Me everything. As you continue to follow Me, I will wash you in the water of My Word, and reveal truth to your innermost being. Seek Me with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength, and I will lead you on the ancient paths.
No more striving, only resting in the finished work of the Cross. No more performance, but recognizing your weakness becomes your strength when you give it to Me. For in Me you live and move and have your being. Let Me be your all in all and rest in My love for you. It is enough. My Son's blood has purified you to radiate My glory. You are beautiful to Me, and surely, I will complete the work I have started in you through My Son.
Esther 2:12 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Now when it was each young woman’s turn to go before King Ahasuerus, after the end of her twelve months under the regulations for the women—for the days of their beautification were completed as follows: six months with oil of myrrh and six months with [sweet] spices and perfumes and the beauty preparations for women—
Song of Songs 8:5-7 The Passion Translation (TPT)
5 Who is this one? Look at her now! She arises out of her desert, clinging to her beloved. When I awakened you under the apple tree, as you were feasting upon me, I awakened your innermost being with the travail of birth as you longed for more of me.
6 Fasten me upon your heart as a seal of fire forevermore.
This living, consuming flame will seal you as my prisoner of love.
My passion is stronger than the chains of death and the grave, all consuming as the very flashes of fire from the burning heart of God. Place this fierce, unrelenting fire over your entire being.
7 Rivers of pain and persecution will never extinguish this flame.
Endless floods will be unable to quench this raging fire that burns within you. Everything will be consumed. It will stop at nothing as you yield everything to this furious fire until it won’t even seem to you like a sacrifice anymore.
Jeremiah 6:16a The Voice (VOICE)
Eternal One (to the people): Stand at the crossing, and consider the ancient path, for it is good and it leads to Me. Walk on this path, and you will find rest for your souls.
