‘Will you drink from My cup?’, is a question Jesus is asking each of us today. For as He is calling His Bride to a place of shining, as His Glory is seen through her, so He is also calling her to drink from His cup and partake in His suffering.
God is calling a Bride who knows her purpose and destiny, driven and propelled by her love for Him, whilst knowing the cost upfront. This question needs much pondering and contemplating, as we need to realize that saying ‘yes’ to this question, demands full surrender, relinquishing all control, and letting go of fear. For He is calling His Bride to jump into the boat set before her, without looking back, without weighing up the risks, without questioning. Jumping, trusting in Him with ALL her heart, mind and soul. Letting Him be the Husband who leads her, the One she trusts in until the end.
Just as Jesus stepped into His three years of ministry, during which the world was turned upside-down by His Glory and Power, so we, His Bride, are stepping into our end-time ministry, operating in the same Glory and Power of the Holy Spirit, causing the world to be changed by His Manifest Presence.
As we behold the workings of the Holy Spirit operating miraculously and supernaturally through His Bride, a growing current of opposition and persecution will rise against her, just as it did against Jesus. For Christ shatters the globalists’ system of control, manipulation, and disempowerment. He gives freedom and releases His power to all who call on His Name.
This is the most exciting time in church history… be ready for the ride of your life! But know, as we embark on this incredible journey with the Holy Spirit, partaking in His Glory, we will also partake in His suffering.
John 12: 20-26
20And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast: 21The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus. 22Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus. 23And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. 24Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 25He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. 26If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
22But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. 23And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.
