Jesus says: “I am coming soon. Are you prepared?
Take up your arms and lay down your life… be prepared, for I am coming. I am come in Majesty and I come to rule and to reign. To send forth My church into the victorious battle – and yet this battle is not won by the usual means. This battle will be won by those who choose to lay themselves, and their lives, down for Me.
Will you choose this day to lay down your life again for Me? I am asking for a greater level of commitment, of purity and of holiness in this hour. I am asking for you to be one who would not partner with offence or with the spirits and spiritual currents of this age. I am asking you to come out of what is familiar and what is ‘safe’ and go deeper. This involves greater risk and the application of a greater level of faith.
Choose to go deeper and lay down the things of your old life. Make choices with care – choose wisely, listen to my Spirit – I will lead you. Now is the time when even the smallest degree shifts to the left or the right have great impact.
Separate yourself from all in this world that is not of Me and step into the fullness of My Spirit – come and step into My Heavenly current. Lay down the ways of the past and take up the new.
And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness; it will be for those who walk on that Way.
The unclean will not journey on it; wicked fools will not go about on it.
Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self? Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
