Old Church. New Church
FOR SHE WHICH WAS CUT OFF SHALL BE PLANTED AGAIN, WHEN THE GLORY OF THE LATTER HOUSE SHALL BE GREATER THAN THAT OF THE FORMER! She which was stricken and did sit in ashes shall be glorified in royal raiment and sit upon a throne, and I will be glorified in her.
“It’s always been about the “church”, My bride, not the personality. It’s not about the man but about Me, your Bridegroom. Oh yes, I love you as individuals, as My brides, but I also love you as “My Bride”, one wife. The true meaning of the above prophecy is “she”, the bride, the church, the body of believers.
I am the Creator, you are My creation, something that I created to love and which was made to love Me. You have nothing that I have not given you. When you are not in My hand, then you are nothing; and when you are in My hand you are nothing but a tool, a channel, an instrument of My love to others. The difference between the two is the first one operates under its own power and strength, and like Satan and all those that rebel against this order. They will eventually fade out, run out of steam, whilst the other will continue to be empowered by My love and thus live on throughout eternity.
This is an hard saying for man, for he is full of pride and self. He wants to think that he can operate under his own power as God does. How difficult it is for man to humble himself under the mighty hand of God and be as he really is, nothing, nothing but a tool of God’s love, both to his Creator and to his fellowman. If he cannot yield to this order, to this plan, to this fact, then he will go about lording it over others in his attempt to be noticed, to be recognized as something other than what he truly is, nothing but flesh.
But if man will give Me the glory and praise then I will lift him up, as a tool in the hand of a carpenter, I will lift him up and use him for My glory and in My glory create something out of nothing in order that My power is manifested to all of creation. Yet as is written, I have given man free will and majesty of choice. It is given into his hand to choose either to stay in My hand as a tool of My love or remain on the bench and try to make furniture his own way. This is the order of things.”
My Bride, the Church
