I am taking my church back. It belongs to Me. I died for My Church. I sit on the right hand of My Father interceding for My Church. I go before you blessing and making the way straight and plain for My Church. It is mine. No one else. The foundation you have laid is not laid with The cornerstone. I AM the chief cornerstone and I laid in Zion a sure foundation; a precious corner stone for My Church.
You have rejected My ways and trampled my wine press. You have nothing that pertains to me. I am a forgotten past with no remembrance of My Great Sacrifice.
You say, “How can we do a walk-around to not offend the masses and prick their hearts?” I let you go your own way and wayward it became. The lame came in lame and left lame. The downtrodden were never inclined to darken your door. They would have caused a commotion and wouldn’t have understood ‘our ways’. So YOU say. What about My Ways and My Heart for all mankind. I came to give life to ALL, whosoever will come.
You enlarged your parking lots but not your hearts. It is apparent the highways and by-ways were not convenient to frequent. I would have compelled them to come. Come unto me all you who are weary and heavy laden. Your burden is heavy but my burden is light and my way easy. My rest is sufficient and sweet.
I say again, “I am taking My Church back.” You will see!
Don’t worry about how I will do it … it never was your concern.
“I will go before thee and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass and cut in sunder the bars of iron.”
Isaiah 45: 2
“Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Matthew 11: 28-30
“Therefore thus says the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not make haste.”
Isaiah 28: 16
Prophetic Insight: It is obvious from the tone of the above word that His Church raised up in His way will not look anything like the current structures. Nor will the heart of the matter be the same. He, of course, is beginning the work in His Body which as we know IS The Church. It does not negate the efforts and heart that we have put into the building of His Church but, again obvious, that it does not reflect His Heart on the level of perfection and love that it should. How will he show the way to rebuild the New? First it will begin with repentance. We have to take responsibility for some ways we let the Lord down. Yes there has always been room for improvement and more heart and soul and good ole work. There will always be the one leading the pack in that area, for the good and for the bad. The Lord has and will continue to bless, strengthen and promote those that have had the heart of God in this area of His Church and its endeavors to glorify the Kingdom of our God. There will be plenty of opportunity for each one of us to continue to press toward the mark of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
“Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, If that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not my self to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus”
Philippians 3: 12-14
