The Lord would say, “I am a God of new beginnings. I make all things new. Old things have passed away. Let old things pass away. Do not hang on so tightly to what was and what is. Let everything pass away. As everything passes away, I will bring to you what is needed now. I will let you understand I am a God of the now. When people needed miracles, I came then. I am the God of the then and you will come to understand when you need Me, then I will be there. Do not call me before the fullness of time; walk with me moment by moment. Be in the now. Be in the ever knowledge of the presence of My glory. Let old things pass away. Pull down strongholds, thinking in your mind of limitations of running to meet me, but come into the realization lo I am with you always. If I am with you always and always beside you, how can you run to Me when I am always with you?
“Be aware of Me, turn to Me, keep your eyes upon Me, the author and the finisher of your faith. Not only have I begun your faith, not only have I authored your faith, but I am going to finish your faith with My faith. My faith I will put into you this night, so you will begin to flow in a new level of faith. You will begin to flow in My belief system, not in the system of the world nor of your own limited knowledge.
“Turn your minds and your thoughts down. Cast away vain imaginations for the enemy would have you live way in the distant. He would have you live way in the past. He would not want you to bring forth the remembrance of My visitations when I answered your prayers. He would have you think I am a long distant God. I am with you always. Be aware of My presence. As you become even more aware of My presence, then you will be become more aware of who I am.
“Do not look for man. Do not look for child or woman, or the things of the world to fulfill you, but come to know the longing in My heart for you. Truly I am your groom. You are My beloved bride. I long for kisses of My people and I long to kiss My people. I long to answer prayers. I long to bring wisdom, knowledge, favor, strength, and understanding. I want My people to know I am with them always and there is no other God besides Me,” says the Lord your God.

As we were in worship, I kept hearing the Holy Spirit say, “I am coming to you in newness. I am taking off of you robes that no longer fit you, robes that cause heaviness upon you, robes of disappointment, of shame, of confusion, of doubt and of fear. The that has been placed upon your head, and man has straightened it on your head, has been man’s opinion to where it has caused you to hold your head down low rather than put on the crown of righteousness I purchased for you. I want you to learn how to walk with your heads held high, to set your faces like flint towards My face. As you set your faces, looking deep into My eyes, searching into My eyes, you will not find condemnation, judgment, doubt nor fear. You and your eyes will become a mirror of what is in My eyes: My love for you, My love for My people, My understanding for you, My understanding for My people, My compassion for you, My compassion for My people, My long-suffering for you, My long-suffering for My people, My wisdom for you, My wisdom for My people. I would ask that you would allow Me to become a mirror. As you reflect upon me and in Me, I will reflect upon you. As the world sees you, they will see My reflection: the goodness of God that has kept you, has directed you, has strengthened you, has dressed you, and that has clothed you from on high.
“I am pulling down your understanding. I am pulling down the ways of the world, but I am establishing within you My kingdom. I want a dwelling place. You will come to understand My word. You will come to live and you will come to receive and you will come to believe that My kingdom is truly, truly within you. When this realization and this understanding comes to you and unfolds to you and around you, you will not feel isolated nor abandoned nor alone. You may feel at times separated, because I will separate you unto Myself. I have said you are merely walking through this world. You are travelers, but you are packed with the things of Heaven. I have caused things within you to be the storehouses of My goodness. Out of you will come good prayers for My people who are hurting. Out of you will come good words that will reflect the goodness of God towards them and bring them to repentance. Out of you will come My mercy and My goodness. You will become epistles, the living word, the gospel, that man can see tangible before them because you will share the fruit of My kingdom. Thy will know what I taste like for you well tell them this “I have tasted and now I know He is good.” Declare this says the Lord your God.

I hear the Lord saying, “Why do you go to the wilderness to hear My voice when My spirit is within you? Why do you run to and fro to hear the voice of man when My spirit would instruct you in the night? Why would you try to escape from My presence when My presence is all consuming of all fear, all doubt and all unbelief? Why would you turn your face toward man and need the approval of man’s hand and man’s heart when you have only to know the kisses of a Father, who is not only with you, but who is for you? Why would you allow man to position you when I have created you for a position? Why would you allow man to have a voice louder than that of My spirit? For man thinks with his own understanding, and leans not to his own understanding. I want you to lean into My love and find understanding. Why would you let man form who you are, who were called to be and who you were when I have claimed you to make you in My image; to groom you, to raise you up, to break off what man would put upon you as restrictions and limitations, cast down titles, cast down thrones, cast down ambitions. This will lead to spiritual pride that would cause you to stumble, but I will be the Father who will pick up my child and begin to heal their knees.
“Many of you have stumbled, not with understanding, but because of man trying to place you into a position that My spirit has not fit you into. Come and be fitted into My hand. Have I not said I hold you in the palm of My hand? Know the palm of My hand is able to lift you, to sustain you and to lift you out of and through all circumstances. Do not go after the hand of man, but go after the heart of your Father. In doing this, you will come to understand I am a jealous God, and I come as an all consuming fire. I consume all that would come against you. I would consume all that would try to have you bend your knee, cause you to be distracted from what I am calling you and causing you to become. You were created for My pleasure. You were created for My purpose. You were created and I alone know the plans I have for you: plans for a future and a hope. I have not come with distruction. I have come with a Heavenly sent plan. Each man I have called by name. I have called you each by name and I claim you as my name has claimed you over and over again. Come to understand you are My name sake. Take My name for My sake and yours,” says the Lord your God.

The Lord said, “Take off restrictions. Take off the restrictions man has placed upon you. Take off constrictions the world has you tied in knots and with allowing you to run free. Throw off heaviness. Throw off sin. Throw off depression and discouragement. Stand on My word. Dwell in My word. Let My word dwell in you. You are going to see My hand. When it comes down, you will know it is My hand. Even now My hand is moving. Can you not hear the spirit of mockery rising up in the world? Do you not understand that I was mocked upon the cross, My own, too, will be mocked? Know in the mocking, there is also a marking of My glory. Learn to accept My glory. Learn to be marked and set aside. Do not let the world mark you. I have marked you with the blood of My Son. I have paid costly for you. I have paid a great price for you. Live expensively. Live abundantly. Live in the blood of My Son. Have I not said, ‘There is life in My blood?’
“Take life. Let death be defeated. Let depression be defeated. Let hope rise up where despair has become a place to lay. Take authority. Stand in the goodness of your God, for there is no where else to stand. Stand in My goodness. Stand in My favor. Stand in My understanding. Ask for the mind of Christ to be placed in you, so you will be able to comprehend, and to think the thoughts of Christ. Pull down vain imaginations. Whatever the enemy comes and takes up residency, you have allowed him to take what My kingdom has come to claim. Declare off limits to the demonic; let surrendering to My kingdom and let My glory reign,” says the Lord your God.

I hear the Lord say, “Hear the mixture of the sounds. Did you not hear the thunder? Did you not hear the horses? Did you not hear them pounding the earth as they are preparing to move about? Did you not hear the rain of refreshment that is about to fall upon the Earth? Did you not hear this tingle of hope, hope that causes people to look up to know redemption is drawing near? Did you not come to an understanding that I move in a multitude of ways? Sometimes I come in the thunder; sometimes I come in the whisper; sometimes I come in the stillness and sometimes I come as a King of Glory on a mighty white steed preparing His people. Preparing His people to go forth with the gospel of power. I am looking for a people who will submit, who will surrender, who will abandon themselves to Me, who will take back their will from one another and place their will and allegiance to Me and to Me alone. My will is about to be revealed. In this will, you will come to understand why I have had you lay aside, and why I have had you called out. I have called you aside so you could recognize My whispers. I have called you out from other things that would pull on you, to be cut away from you,for your good.
“I am preparing runners; runners with My word, runners with My power, runners who are able to leap over mountains with Me with hinds feet. I am causing My own to come apart, to come into the bridal chamber where I can whisper to them My will and they can come forth with authority of knowing who has sent them. For the time you are entering into, the bridal chamber thrown open. But it will be different for there will be a party in this bridal chamber. It will be the wedding party that I am preparing for My own. Others will come and those who are not dressed properly, but with their own good works or with all that man has place upon them, I will take it off of them. I will place My robes of grace, My robes of righteousness, and robes of My power with My works, with My name, for My sake.
“Come now and realize there is going to be a mighty, gigantic move that will come across your land. It will be known not only as a Jesus movement, King of King movement, for I alone has stripped away religion, and has stripped away any alliance with the world. It will cause everything that makes you stumble to be stripped away. There will come fire on the feet of My own to spread the gospel of love, the good news of forgiveness, the good news of healing, the good news that God is for you and not against you. I am about to speak to people who are preaching a gospel of harshness and I am going to remove them and I am going to bring forth a grace message. But it will be a message balanced with grace and righteousness in purity and holiness and in power for they cannot go independent, but they must flow in the same river of love, protection, and authority,” says the Lord your God.
