It is time for another Renaissance. In My Kingdom, I make all things new to use for My glory. Being in My presence and living moment by moment with an awareness of My presence will launch you into this transition phase of My glory. How can you represent Me well if you do not really know Me? Don't you spend lots of time with someone when you are in love? You want to spend every waking minute with them, and when you are apart, you constantly think about them.
That is how it should be with Me! Press in to know Me, because I want to saturate every fiber of your being until you release My fragrance. This is how the early disciples’ shadow healed the sick. They were carrying the glory of My presence.
Can you imagine My church, My Bride, when she radiates My glory in every area of society? It is not too difficult for Me, but the question is, are you willing to count the cost and lay down your life to know Me intimately? Come to Me, even in the night hours when I awaken you. Recognize My presence. Acknowledge Me and tell me that you love Me.
Song of Songs 2:8-14 The Passion Translation (TPT)
8 Listen! I hear my lover’s voice. I know it’s him coming to me—leaping with joy over mountains, skipping in love over the hills that separate us, to come to me.
9 Let me describe him: he is graceful as a gazelle, swift as a wild stag. Now he comes closer, even to the places where I hide. He gazes into my soul, peering through the portal as he blossoms within my heart.
10 The one I love calls to me:
Arise, my dearest. Hurry, my darling. Come away with me! I have come as you have asked to draw you to my heart and lead you out. For now is the time, my beautiful one.
11 The season has changed, the bondage of your barren winter has ended, and the season of hiding is over and gone. The rains have soaked the earth
12 and left it bright with blossoming flowers. The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived. I hear the cooing of doves in our land, filling the air with songs to awaken you and guide you forth.
13 Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of their flowers whispers, “There is change in the air.” Arise, my love, my beautiful companion, and run with me to the higher place. For now is the time to arise and come away with me.
14 For you are my dove, hidden in the split-open rock. It was I who took you and hid you up high in the secret stairway of the sky. Let me see your radiant face and hear your sweet voice. How beautiful your eyes of worship and lovely your voice in prayer.
