“Hold on to me, My bride,” The Lord began, “Hold on tight to me — only Me.”
Lord, I would like to take a moment and thank you for being in my life. Thank you that you are so present and daily giving yourself for me and others, for this is the firm anchor in the end — you are with me all the way through, just like that drawing above. I love it when I see you sitting down before your bride, even in the very dark stormy clouds above you. It gives such safety — you are there. I just feel it now, that you, in this life, whatever clouds or storms — just like that dream, stepping on the stormy waters and dark clouds, yet you and the bride walked on that water, you were even joyful that she was coming along! Meanwhile, the bride could not wish to have anyone better near her side but you.
So…. I wish to thank you, for being here and for this life. Because in the end, it’s you and I — A relationship.
The Lord took over and switched to His own point of view, saying to us,
“Thank you for embracing Me, loving Me, accepting Me as I am. Thank you for diving with Me — staying here through it all. Thank you for your presence before Me day and night. Thank you for the times spent together — cooking, cleaning, hanging in there, diving into the joys of life with Me. Thank you for giving me your own free will. I know it is tough to submit it at times, but even then — thank you, My child. For you are My priceless pearl and had I not you near me, this world would be darkener to Me. Your joy brings Me joy. I just want to thank Our God for giving Me you! For, despite your yet unpolished state, you are Mine forever, now. Do you know how huge that is?! [He was magnified serious wonderment of joy]. Even if I were to possess and have a thousand universes, having one soul, is such a huge blessing! Nothing compares to it. And I SO love each and every one who has even given himself to Me [He was moved to tears], you can never imagine the full gratitude I feel now [He was so sensitive], [He feels loved]. How I wish all would come to me [He was beginning to weep]. If only they would come to me…. [He sounded a little bit sad].
And then He said to me,
“You do your best, My little one, to bring some to me with the gifts I gave you. Your touch is made to feed them, in whatever way it comes through; art, messages, counsel, smile, words, hugs — your very presence.
“My darlings, you are all FILLED with empowering gifts to bring so many to Me. Your very smile is a huge weapon to disarm the enemy and console a soul. Do you know how powerful a smile is? It is the best of the person. When a soul smiles, they give their best expression — their very best self. And what joy it brings to the one receiving it. Do you know your touch is a comfort to many? Do you know, My people, your very being is a gift empowered to disarm the enemy? That is why I so wish to heavy laden it with my abundant graces and make a holy weapon out of you in this world. My people [strong excitement and love], you are breathtaking! You are ME! — I AM IN YOU! Do you know how powerful you are!? Not because of yourself, but because of the One you possess, the One IN you!
“My dear ones, love much unto folly. Love much, love very, very much. Place Me first — above all else. For like this, you will be able to love. I have to fill you with this love in order to function in its power. It has many forms but in all this – you conquer with Me when loving. Do you know how sweet it is to love? Do you know how ardent it is to be consumed with love that you are SO filled you cannot hold it within lest it explodes – it has to explode and give it free rein! Oh My loves, if only you knew.
“You are My holy people, My dearly loved ones. And no matter what you are struggling with, dear ones, you are SO precious to behold — so magnificent to Me. Hold on my people, the breakthrough is coming! Hold on and breathe Me in! Breathe me out! Inhale yourselves with Me. Let me be our aiding air, let me be all you need me to be right now.
“Fill yourselves in My worship, fill yourselves with Me. For greater Am I — with you, than all those coming against you! You ARE VICTORIOUS IN ME! Take reign!
“Hold fast to Me! I Am your God, and you are MY well-beloved people! Thank you for staying near Me! Keep strong and stand, My people!
Then I saw Him breathing strong on all His people, to stand strong!
“Truly, hold on a little bit longer, My time is coming to break free for you, My dear ones. Glory in Me! Glory in your Father and exult Him for He Is Good!! He is always and always good! Trust firmly and have great confidence in Us. You are safe and sound on Our side. Have rest and peace in Me, dear ones. I am ever so greatly appreciated of your staying with Me through it all. Thank you, My people. You are My joy on earth, and greater is your joy in Me. Hold on fast, My time is coming.” [to break through for you].
Is there anything you would like to add, Jesus?
“I LOVE YOU ALL!” [Strong fervent, honest, and loyal, love declaration]. “I bless you all evermore to go deep in and with Me, until the end of time! You are victorious My people, For I am the Victor!”
The Lord bless you all with the joy of the Lord and His peace abounding.
