MESSY, MESSY, MESSY
My church wants to keep everything nice and neat. They do not want anything to get messy. When I come, they want Me to behave and not do anything to offend. However, I say to you that when I come, I come as I please. I release the wind, the fire, the oil, the rain, and the new wine. I come to those that have hungry hearts and have determined that they must have more of Me at any cost. These are willing to be fools for Christ, and have determined that they must know Me above all else. Nothing else will satisfy the longing in their hearts.
Most of My church is satisfied with keeping Me at arm's length, content with the status quo. Although I never change, I am doing a new thing. I will not be limited by man's perception of how things should be done. I am a God of order, but it is My order, not man's. Therefore, lay down your preconceived notions of how I should do things. Stop looking at the past and trying to make revival happen.
Seek Me above all else. Worship Me in spirit and in truth, for I am faithful to respond to the hungry and thirsty hearts. I am coming swiftly to reward those that press in to know Me. Will you be among them or on the outskirts looking in? Choose now to seek My face, for there is nothing that compares to intimacy with Me.
Psalm 69:8-10 The Passion Translation (TPT)
8 Even my own brothers, those of my family, act as though they don’t want anything to do with me.
9 My love for you has my heart on fire! My passion consumes me for your house! Nothing will turn me away, even though I endure all the insults of those who insult you.
10 When they see me seeking for more of you with weeping and fasting, they all just scoff and scorn at my passion.
Psalm 84:2, 4, 9-10 The Passion Translation (TPT)
2 Deep within me are these lovesick longings, desires and daydreams of living in union with you. When I’m near you my heart and my soul will sing and worship with my joyful songs of you, my true source and spring of life!
4 What pleasure fills those who live every day in your temple, enjoying you as they worship in your presence! Pause in his presence
9 God, your wrap-around presence is our defense. In your kindness look upon the faces of your anointed ones.
10 For just one day of intimacy with you is like a thousand days of joy rolled into one! I’d rather stand at the threshold in front of the Gate Beautiful, ready to go in and worship my God, than to live my life without you in the most beautiful palace of the wicked.
Ephesians 3:17-19 The Passion Translation (TPT)
17 Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and the resting place of his love will become the very source and root of your life.
18–19 Then you will be empowered to discover what every holy one experiences—the great magnitude of the astonishing love of Christ in all its dimensions. How deeply intimate and far-reaching is his love! How enduring and inclusive it is! Endless love beyond measurement that transcends our understanding—this extravagant love pours into you until you are filled to overflowing with the fullness of God!
