VISITATION OR HABITATION
Some people enjoy a spiritual encounter with Me and are satisfied with that. But then there are those that a drink will not suffice. They have encountered the visitations of the past, or have seen them come and go. They are pressing in because they long for Me more than an encounter. They have tasted and seen that I am good.
Do you want more of Me? The reality is I need more of you. Complete surrender of your agenda. Will you yield to Me and what I want to do? Are you willing to have Me take over completely and interrupt your schedule, your programs, your thoughts of how things should be done?
For I am about to upset the apple cart, and many will think it is not Me. However, I have always offended those with a religious spirit. Do not be caught fighting against Me or expecting Me to move the way you have seen in the past. For I am God and I do as I please.
Therefore, yield to Me and allow Me to have first place in your life. Do not quench My Spirit. Lay down your lives and watch what My Spirit will do, for I am moving at an accelerated pace. Trim your lamps and be ready, for the time of habitation is soon upon you. For I am an all-consuming fire, therefore, be ready, My Bride!
John 14:10-12 New Century Version (NCV)
10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I say to you don’t come from me, but the Father lives in me and does his own work. 11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Or believe because of the miracles I have done. 12 I tell you the truth, whoever believes in me will do the same things that I do. Those who believe will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
Hebrews 12:28-29 Amplified Bible (AMP)
28 Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, and offer to God pleasing service and acceptable worship with reverence and awe; 29 for our God is [indeed] a consuming fire.
