You are in a war zone. When one is wounded in battle, you remove them from the battle and tend to their wounds. Although there are those that must be rescued and nursed back to health, the battle continues to rage around you.
Are you to show compassion to those that are wounded, restoring their hope and health? Of course! Yet if you only focus on serving those incapacitated, without maintaining and advancing your battles lines, what will happen then? Defeat!
I have placed many with gifts of compassion and healing within My body, but I have also placed those to advance the Kingdom. Each generation is to advance farther into enemy territory, bringing My Kingdom rule and reign.
For My Church must come to the realization that I have no plan to rescue her until My promises have been fulfilled. Read My Word and you will discover many things that must occur before I release My Son to come back for you. For surely, He is coming for a pure Bride, without spot or wrinkle. He is coming back for a victorious Church, not one cowering and retreating before the enemy. Therefore, arise My warrior Bride, for I have so much more for you. Set your eyes on things above, for My Kingdom of light is invading the darkness. Surely, you will overcome because I am your victory!
Psalm 102:12-22 The Passion Translation (TPT)
12 But then I remember that you, O Lord, still sit enthroned as King over all! The fame of your name will be revealed to every generation.
13 I know you are about to arise and show your tender love to Zion. Now is the time, Lord, for your compassion and mercy to be poured out—the appointed time has come for your prophetic promises to be fulfilled!
14 For your servants weep in sympathy over Zion’s ruins and feel love for her every stone.
15 When you arise to intervene, all the nations and kings will be stunned and will fear your awesome name, trembling before your glory!
16 Yes, you will reveal yourself to Zion and appear in the brightness of your glory to restore her and give her children.
17 He responds to the prayer of the poor and broken and will not despise the cry of the homeless.
18 Write all this down for the coming generation, so re-created people will read it and praise the Lord!
19 Tell them how Yah looked down from his high and holy place, gazing from his glory to survey the earth.
20 He listened to all the groaning of his people longing to be free, and he set loose the sons of death to experience life.
21 Multitudes will stream to Jerusalem to praise the Lord and declare his name in Zion!
22 Peoples from every land, their kings and kingdoms, will gather together to worship the Lord.
Revelation 19:6-8 The Passion Translation (TPT)
6 Then I heard what seemed to be the thunderous voice of a great multitude, like the sound of a massive waterfall and mighty peals of thunder, crying out:
“Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns!
7 Let us rejoice and exalt him and give him glory, because the wedding celebration of the Lamb has come. And his bride has made herself ready.
8 Fine linen, shining bright and clear, has been given to her to wear, and the fine linen represents the righteous deeds of his holy believers.”
