VOICE OF MANY WATERS
My voice will drown out the voice of the enemy, for My truth destroys his continual lies and manipulation. For far too long My people have been forced to drink from waters that are contaminated. Yet those who truly know Me have not defiled themselves nor ate of the enemy's delicacies.
I say to you, My people, "Come out from among her." There must be no compromise. Who has loved My laws and loved My ways? Who follows closely and daily watches at My gates to hear the word of the Lord? Who has believed the prophets and obeyed My voice?
For I, the Lord, do not change. I am the same yesterday, today and forever. As I have rescued and delivered time and time again, so I will rescue you. My arm is not too short to save. I will have the final say. But when I return, will I find faith on the earth? Who is on My side? Who walks by faith and not by sight? Who really believes My Word and will act accordingly?
For I am calling My dread champions to the forefront! No, it is not who you think it will be, but the meek and lowly; those who others scorn and call foolish. For I am still mighty to save and do not require schemes of man to overthrow the enemy. My ways are always higher. My thoughts are always superior.
Therefore, I say to you, "Come up here, My Bride. Ascend to your position as kings and priests, seated with Christ in heavenly places. No more low living, but arise to the occasion and govern rightly. Decree 'On earth as it is in heaven. My Father's will. My Father's way.'"
You have the mind of Christ, so tap into it and I will reveal My secrets and mysteries to those who will steward these riches wisely. Come into the war room of heaven and find out what My battle strategy is, for your weapons are not carnal weapons. Find out My strategy and then obey.
How did I lead My people out of captivity in times past? Study the battles in My Word and you will see that none made sense logically. I require faith and obedience, not logic and reasoning. Are you demanding Me to be on your side or will you side with Me?
Do not lean on your own understanding, but follow Me without questioning or wavering. For I am still the Captain of the hosts of angel armies, and surely My voice will drown out every lie and deception of the enemy. He cannot stand for the victory was already secured at the Cross of Calvary.
Now advance, My Bride, for surely you will dance on the head of the enemy, and My Name will be lifted up for all the world to see that I am God, the Great I AM! I am the Ancient of Days! Yes, I am ruling in favor of the saints for My Son's sake, for He will have His reward, the nations as His inheritance.
Revelation 1 The Passion Translation (TPT)
1 This is the unveiling of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to share with his loving servants what must occur swiftly. He clearly made it known by sending his angel to his loving servant John. 2 I, John, bore witness to the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. 3 A joyous blessing rests upon the one who reads this message and upon those who hear and embrace the words of this prophecy, for the appointed time is in your hands.
4 From John to the seven churches in western Turkey: May the kindness of God’s grace and peace overflow to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are in front of his throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ the Faithful Witness, the Firstborn from among the dead and the ruling King, who rules over the kings of the earth!
Now to the one who constantly loves us and has loosed us from our sins by his own blood, 6 and to the one who has made us to rule as a kingly priesthood to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and dominion throughout the eternity of eternities! Amen!
7 Behold! He appears within the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him. And all the people groups of the earth will weep with sorrow because of him. And so it is to be! Amen.
8 “I am the Aleph and the Tav,” says the Lord God, “who is, who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”
9 I, John, am your brother and companion in tribulation, the kingdom, and the patience that are found in Jesus. I was exiled on the island of Patmos because of the ministry of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. 10 I was in the spirit realm on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice sounding like a trumpet, 11 saying to me:
Write in a book what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamum, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.
12 When I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, I saw seven golden lampstands. 13 And walking among the lampstands, I saw someone like a son of man, wearing a full-length robe with a golden sash over his chest. 14 His head and his hair were white like wool—white as glistening snow. And his eyes were like flames of fire! 15 His feet were gleaming like bright metal, as though they were glowing in a fire, and his voice was like the roar of many rushing waters. 16 In his right hand he held seven stars, and out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. And his face was shining like the brightness of the blinding sun! 17 When I saw him, I fell down at his feet as good as dead, but he laid his right hand on me and I heard his reassuring voice saying:
Don’t yield to fear. I am the Beginning and I am the End, 18 the Living One! I was dead, but now look—I am alive forever and ever. And I hold the keys that unlock death and the unseen world. 19 Now I want you to write what you have seen, what is, and what will be after the things that I reveal to you. 20 The mystery of the lampstands and the seven stars is this: the seven lampstands are the seven churches, and the seven stars in my right hand are the seven messengers of the seven churches.
