How many wounds has His Heart not gained? How many tears has He not shed? Even in His deepest affliction caused by repetitive betrayal, His Love goes further and beyond her unfaithfulness. He knows that in His shaking, many will fall, but there is a sure remnant who will come forth as gold, remaining through the shaking.
These are a holy tribe of faithful ones, who will love Him more than life itself. A peculiar people who will come to know Him intimately, ascend into Zion, and live in the place of awe and wonder of who He is. A pure remnant who will take hold of His Sword and be consumed with His Fire, pursuing the enemy, overtaking him, and having victory on every side. For they are driven by their love for Him and the desires of His Heart. Their lives are an outpoured offering, given intentionally to Him.
Bride of Christ, Holy Remnant of the Lord, build a memorial unto your God to remember all He has done and from where you have come. Remember His Faithfulness and His Goodness when you come into your place of inheritance. For the time of His Manifest blessing and favour is upon you.
Everything that you have waited for, that have been delayed, is about to be released. Gifts of favour, mantles and mandates are being handed out in this hour. Be watchful and prayerful, remain in the place of hiddenness in Christ, even in the broad, open space of promotion, for in the place of His Shadow, covered by His Glory, we will remain faithful.
This is the time of the ‘Great Reveal’. The Lord is about to reveal His true sons and daughters. He will parade His holy remnant as He paraded Joseph, in the midst of the people, He will vindicate and upgrade them to their new position of authority and vocation for this era.
For this era is called the era of the Lord’s Manifestation. We will behold His Manifest Glory, Favour, and Blessing upon His People. We will also behold His Manifest Judgment on the wicked. Everything will be weighed on the scales of Justice and Truth in this era. That which is pure will be lifted up high. That which is wicked will be removed. Everything will be revealed and made known in this era of His Light.
As we enter the land of milk and honey, the place of inheritance and blessing, let’s learn from our forefathers. Set up a memorial that will remind you and your future generations of the Greatness and Faithfulness of our God. Remain hidden in Christ so that all Glory and Praise will go to Him alone, protect and defend your covenant with Him, and most of all, remain His Faithful Bride, the one He hastens to return for.
Deuteronomy 32:4-6, 10-18,
4“The Rock, his work is perfect,
for all his ways are justice.
A God of faithfulness and without iniquity,
just and upright is he.
5They have dealt corruptly with him;
they are no longer his children because they are blemished;
they are a crooked and twisted generation.
6Do you thus repay the LORD,
you foolish and senseless people?
Is not he your father, who created you,
who made you and established you?
10“He found him in a desert land,
and in the howling waste of the wilderness;
he encircled him, he cared for him,
he kept him as the apple of his eye.
11Like an eagle that stirs up its nest,
that flutters over its young,
spreading out its wings, catching them,
bearing them on its pinions,
12the LORD alone guided him,
no foreign god was with him.
13He made him ride on the high places of the land,
and he ate the produce of the field,
and he suckled him with honey out of the rock,
and oil out of the flinty rock.
14Curds from the herd, and milk from the flock,
with fatc of lambs,
rams of Bashan and goats,
with the very finestd of the wheat—
and you drank foaming wine made from the blood of the grape.
15“But Jeshurun grew fat, and kicked;
you grew fat, stout, and sleek;
then he forsook God who made him
and scoffed at the Rock of his salvation.
16They stirred him to jealousy with strange gods;
with abominations they provoked him to anger.
17They sacrificed to demons that were no gods,
to gods they had never known,
to new gods that had come recently,
whom your fathers had never dreaded.
18You were unmindful of the Rock that boree you,
and you forgot the God who gave you birth.
27And Gideon made an ephod of it and put it in his city, in Ophrah. And all Israel whored after it there, and it became a snare to Gideon and to his family.
19For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.
5And Joshua said to them, “Pass on before the ark of the LORD your God into the midst of the Jordan, and take up each of you a stone upon his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the people of Israel, 6that this may be a sign among you. When your children ask in time to come, ‘What do those stones mean to you?’ 7then you shall tell them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD. When it passed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. So these stones shall be to the people of Israel a memorial forever.”
