Just before we entered 2023 I had a dream. In this dream, the Spirit of God fell heavily upon me and I opened my mouth and a prophetic declaration flowed.
“We are entering the days of the beauty of the Beloved and the beauty of the Bride.”
What particularly struck me was the “weight” of the declaration and how powerfully the Spirit of God fell, but also I noticed there was a lot of youth standing in front of me as this prophetic declaration went forth.
I then heard Psalm 27:4-5 thundering in the spiritual realm in the dream:
“One thing I have asked of the Lord, that I will seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in His temple.”
As I have sat in this dream before the Lord, He showed me that these are the days of His Majesty revealed. We have entered the days where the beauty of Jesus and the revealing of Jesus is going to happen on a scale that we have not seen or entered into before.
There is a beauty of our Beloved that will be revealed in this hour that will cause hearts to burn with adoration for Him in a new and fresh way.
Hearts will burn with first love fire in an unprecedented way, as the beauty of Jesus and His Majesty is revealed in an unprecedented way.
This revealing of His beauty and revealing of His Majesty will usher in a greater move of the restoration of the fear of the Lord in the Church. There will be a greater increase of awe and wonder in who Jesus is and the beauty of His heart and His nature that will see the increase of holiness and consecration unto the Lord.
I believe this move of His Spirit that is shaking, revealing and dealing with things in His Church has begun as the Lord “cleans house”, but these shakings and dealings are only going to increase in the coming days as the beauty and Majesty of the Lord is revealed.
Jesus Christ is taking centre stage in the Church again; and He is raising up a company of believers whose greatest desire is to gaze upon His beauty, to know Him, to live deeply surrendered to Him and in unbridled passion and intimacy with Him.
Their greatest burning is not for ministry, platforms or “building their name”, their greatest burning desire is to KNOW HIM.
The Lord has been speaking the word “ONENESS” to me over and over and over again for the last year and we are entering the days of living in a deep “ONENESS” with Jesus: the revelation of being “IN HIM”, “IN CHRIST” and that sacred place of oneness being one of the foundational revelations of the new era that the Lord is breathing upon.
He is establishing a people, strong, fortified and burning in the revelation that “in Him, they live and move and have their being” (Acts 17:28).
The revelation of the “oneness” that we have in Christ being wrapped into Him, for those that lean in and consecrate themselves unto Him, will carry His Glory in stunning ways and walk in His power in ways they have never experienced before.
The Lord spoke to me that 2023 will be a year of being “SATURATED IN HIS GLORY” but it came with an invitation to consecrate ourselves, make room for Him, position ourselves in that place of surrender to linger with Him and gaze upon His beauty. Friendship and intimacy with our Beloved are the highest priority.
In the dream I had, there were “youth” standing before me as the prophetic declaration went forth of entering the days of His beauty, and I believe there is a move of the Spirit of God upon the YOUTH that is going to see them MARKED with the beauty of Jesus, MARKED with a holy fear of the Lord and awe and wonder in a way we have never seen before.
THE BEAUTY OF THE BRIDE
“His Bride has made herself ready.”
There has been intense refining fire that the body of Christ has been walking through and this fire will continue throughout this year: and amidst the call to consecration and the move of the revealing of His beauty and Majesty that I believe we haven’t even seen the tip of the iceberg yet, will see the emerging beauty of the Bride who has made herself ready for His return. The emerging of those who have oil in their lamps.
There is a “ONENESS” in the body of Christ that the Lord has begun to bring forth but is going to increase on an unprecedented scale.
I heard the Lord say, “I am about to teach My people what ONENESS as a body REALLY looks like.”
There is beauty in “ONENESS” as the Bride that the Lord is going to bring forth in this new era and He is uprooting and dealing with all things that are hindering that place of “ONENESS” in His Bride.
As the days increase, as the shaking intensifies, as the revealing escalates, know that the heart of the Lord is He is working to bring forth BEAUTY in His Bride through the Refiner’s fire.
There is a holy fear of the Lord and TREMBLING that is going to increase in the Church as His BEAUTY and revelation of His Majesty increases.
A deep groaning is increasing in the spiritual realm as the beauty of Jesus is increased in the Church and that groan is increasing within those that are truly seeking Him. It’s the cry of Paul in Philippians 3:10:
“And this, so that I may know Him (experientially, becoming more thoroughly acquainted with Him, understanding the remarkable wonders of His Person more completely) and (in that same way experience) the power of His resurrection (which overflows and is active in believers), and (that I may share) the fellowship of His sufferings, by being continually conformed (inwardly into His likeness even) to His death (dying as He did). (Amplified Bible)
People of God, get ready. We have entered the days of the “beauty of the Beloved and the beauty of the Bride” and that greater revealing of Jesus, His beauty and Majesty, will cause the Church to tremble again in awe and wonder and rise up in power in ONENESS with Him and one another.
