Notice in Genesis 13:14-15 (YLT), it was not until AFTER the separation between Lot and Abram, that God told Abram to look and see the land that would be his, and that of his seed:
Gen 13:14 And Jehovah said unto Abram, after Lot’s being parted from him, ‘Lift up, I pray thee, thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art , northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward;
Gen 13:15 for the whole of the land which thou are seeing, to thee I give it, and to thy seed—to the age.
The Body is entering into a separation not yet experienced. A division between those who are children of the Most High, and those who will align with the systems of this world. Can this be, since Yeshua is the Prince of Peace? He IS perfect peace, peace beyond comprehension for those who are of His sheepfold, and who remain under His hand. Consider Luke 12:51 (see through verse 53) “Think ye that peace I came to give in the earth? no, I say to you, but rather division”… (YLT).
We are at a time of decision, a time of consecration, to a depth not conceived of before. No fence sitters. The Bride does not live to please man. There will be great rewards for those who with love, joyously obey Him. Just as in the old TV show ‘To Tell the Truth”, it is now the time that He will roar, “May the real Bride please stand up.”
Keep your eyes on Him. Do not look at who is against you… look at Who is with you, who is for you. He alone is your source, sustenance, and always, always faithful. He is not a man that He would lie (Numbers 23:19), great is His faithfulness. Remain hidden in Him (PS 91:1), living in and from Him, eyes on Him, ears tuned to His voice. HE WILL LEAD YOU, He will shepherd you; you will know Him as never before.
As you remain in Him, lift your eyes, and see what He sees… the glory which will unfold. Just as Abram, you will see the promised land, which belongs to you, His Bride. Look unto Him, the author and finisher of your faith, for you are a part of His eternal plan… a glorious plan. Let His face alone be your desire, His voice the longing of your heart. This is the time of the Glorious Bride, she will arise, displaying the beauty and power of her King.
Just as Lot never envisioned what God showed Abram, others will not have eyes to see what Elohim shows the Bride. It is of the Spirit, it is life, it is insight into what is unfolding, meant for the eyes alone of those who love, walk with, and know Him. With these, He reveals His heart and His plans. Guard His words. Hold them. Cherish them. Treasure them. Speak what He whispers back to Him. Converse with Him, that the seeds deposited may expand before your spiritual eyes, as He unveils strategies, and the coming fruit.
He is returning not for a Bride who is weak, fearful, and defeated. He is returning for a Glorious Bride, a Warrior Bride, without spot or wrinkle, who walks in the knowledge of who He is, who she is in Him. Adorned as a bride, she also wears armor, and skillfully wields the Sword of the Spirit. She stands triumphant. Through Him, her victory has already been won, and she refuses to relinquish the conquest of her King.
