I am revealing My heart to My
people, and by doing so; I am showing them the error of their ways. There is
much yet that has to change in My Body, that I might bring forth a glorious
church without spot or wrinkle. So many want to be the Bride. They want to wear
the Bridal attire, and attend the wedding. They are lost in the romance of the
relationship. There are many that are dressed in the Bridal attire, and they
will come to the altar on the Wedding day, and I will say to them, ďTurn away
from Me, I know you not.Ē My Bride must be all glorious within.
From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in My body,
My Bride, but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been
closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment. It is the day, and it
is the time when I am pouring out the oil of My Spirit, and the wine of
revelation. But there are yet so many that cannot move with My Spirit, and
partake of the wine because of the wounded ness of their lives.
In the parable of the Samaritan there is revelation for My people. There was a
man that had fallen among thieves, they had stripped him of his garments,
wounded him, and left him for half dead. And in this parable this parable the
Samaritan saw the man and had compassion on him. He went to him bound up his
wounds and then poured in the oil and the wine.
Before the oil of My Spirit and the wine of My revelation can be poured in,
there are wounds that must be bound up and healed. Did I not say that you
canít pour new wine into old wineskins? The old wineskins represent the
wounded nature of My people. Because of their wounded ness they are unable to
receive the oil of My Spirit, and the wine of revelation.
You canít pour love and acceptance into wineskins that are full of rejection
and abandonment. You canít pour the wine of revelation into those that canít
even relate to Me as their father. Oil and wine just roll off of these old
wineskins. There must be healing of the old, in order for them to come into the
new. These wounded ones have wineskins that have become hardened and brittle
from the rejection and abandonment in their lives.
There are some among My people that try to force feed these wounded ones.
Condemning them because they just canít get it right, or do it right, or be
right. Wounding them even more, and enforcing the thoughts that they already
have about themselves, for they live under a cloud of condemnation, and making
them a prey for the enemy of their souls. Bound to the words and wounds of their
pasts. Even enforcing their thoughts of self-hatred, self-loathing, and
self-condemnation. Woe to these that do these things in My name. A day of
reckoning and accountability is upon them.
But watch now as I raise up those that have the Samaritan anointing. Those that
are moved by compassion, even the compassion of My heart. They will love much
because they have been forgiven of much. I will bring to these the outcasts of
Israel, and they will be anointed to bind up their wounds, help prepare their
new wineskins, and then pour in the oil and the wine. And as they are going from
faith to faith and glory to glory, I will be preparing for them to wear the
Bridal attire, and I will cleanse them and make them whiter than snow from the
