The Bride of Christ Is Making Herself Ready!

Revelation 19:6-8 "And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints."
A Dream About the Bride Readying Herself
I dreamed all night of many brides who were making themselves ready! Some were old and some were young and I saw a bridegroom waiting for intimacy with this bride. One bride I saw thought that she was too old for this event to take place but she kept preparing for it. I believe God was showing me in this series of dreams that no matter how old you are, intimacy will be the key to "MAKING YOURSELF READY" for what is to come.
Knowing Him Will Be the Key to Entering into Kingdom Business
Matthew 7:21-23 "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
The word knew as in "knew" Him in v.23 is a Jewish idiom for sexual intercourse. In other words for intimacy. Jesus goes on to tell them that He will say to them I NEVER HAD INTIMACY WITH YOU BUT YOU WERE OPERATING IN SIGNS AND WONDERS. THEREFORE YOU WERE DOING THEM ON YOUR OWN ACCORD. The Lord said to me one day that if there is no intimacy then there is nothing truly birthed in the spirit. True intimacy is what it will take to birth the Kingdom and kingdom works in these days.
The Bridegroom Is Calling Us to Intimacy, It Is the Key of David
Isaiah 22:22 And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.
The Lord would say ..."My son David was a man after my own heart and He knew how to walk in intimacy with me as he worshiped me out tending his flocks and then when he worshiped me before the ark with all of his might! He knew that when he established the Tabernacle of David, that this worship would cause Israel to win every battle."
"It was the key to opening every door of influence in My Kingdom! It is the precursor to the Solomon generation who will build My kingdom and usher it in! This intimacy will stop the mouth of lions, save you from the flames of the enemy, tear down the buildings of the enemy and build what I am asking you to build! Through it you will come to KNOW ME!
"Through it you will usher heaven to earth and through it you will pour out the healing balm of Gilead to the Nations, but without me you can do nothing! I want to marry My bride in this hour, so that we can rule and reign together in the earth!! So love the Lord your God with all of your heart, mind and soul and you shall begin to see the overflow of this intimacy in the earth! You will begin to see the power of the anointing in your life and family and you shall begin to see the Nations come to the brightness of your shining!
"I will have a willing people to love me in the day of My power, not those who are coerced, but it has been My plan all along to have those who My Son can just fellowship with and rule and reign with, for this is what He deserves and I will present this Bride to Him chaste, for all that He suffered! Come to Me in this hour, yes come willingly for then we shall work together hand in hand in My Kingdom!"
