We are at the dawn of a new era. People are ready for change and they shall have it! You can tell by the heart’s cry of the people there is a holy thirst for the living waters of Christ. Our very being was created in His image to be as He is – full of life, light and love. It will be this thirst that will cause many to rise up in search of the Lord and they shall find Him. In His presence there are rivers of living water (Rev. 2:22:1-2). These waters are rivers of God’s love that gives life to His people. His love is the key for change as it unlocks the heart where true love flows.
The Spirit is calling, “Come, and let those that are athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take of the water of life freely (Rev. 22:17). To those who drink freely of His love daily, will become like a well-watered garden from which fountains will spring forth that gives life to the thirsty (See Is. 58:11). Get ready for an infilling of God’s love to become an outpouring that will touch the heart of others with His life.
Many of us have experienced the presence of the Lord where the life of heaven permeates the atmosphere with His glory. Jesus is the wonder of heaven and King of His Kingdom. Christ comes in the presence of the Kingdom and in Him, contains the realm of the Kingdom. To those who have tasted this, nothing else will do! In contrast to where we are, this too is the motivating force for change.
Often called “The remnant, “ they are not in rebellion or resisting authority, they are just searching for the love of their life – Him. Discontent with religion and pretension, nothing else will do nor should it. In His presence, we experience the life of His fellowship with the fullness of joy (1 John 1:3).
A fresh baptism of fire has begun that will transform hearts by the power of His love. It will be this fire that will cleanse our vision to give us a more perfect view of the Father’s heart and His great love. To those who receive an infilling of His love, will also receive an impartation of His glory. Because God is love, you cannot receive His love without receiving more of Him – which is the desires of our heart. This too is His desire, that we may know and experience Him. From this “heart to heart” fellowship, we shall see as He does – in this we become one (John 17:21).
Are you seeking for the fullness of God? As the apostle Paul declared, it is by knowing the love of Christ that will take you there “And to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with the fullness of God (Eph. 3:19).
A transformation by His love is taking place that will restore God’s people to walk in the fullness of His presence. With His love imprinted upon their hearts, like a butterfly emerging from a cocoon, the Church is about to soar in the freedom of the Spirit. A bride that is so intimate with Jesus, she will radiate with the light of His love that reveals the beauty of His glory. It is the light of His glory that will attract many to the light of their rising. Here in His presence, they too will be transformed by His love to carry the light of His glory with the power to transform cities and nations (See Is 60:1-3).
You will know them by the love of God that is shed abroad in their hearts by the Holy Spirit (Ro. 5:5). It is this love revealed through His people that will unlock the destiny of many. The key to revival and awakening is the love of God that unlocks the heart where rivers of life flow. This is the love that never fails with the power to break strongholds, open prison doors and set the captives free. It is the love of God that reveals His goodness in the power of the Spirit with signs and wonders that glorifies God and leads to repentance.
The call as always is “Rise and shine for your light has come and His glory has rise upon you” (Is. 60:1). In other words, let your love flow!
