Recently I was sitting at my dining room table and I began to hear the melody of the classic wedding march "Here Comes The Bride". The melody began to ring out deep within my spirit until I began to sing it out loud. At first I laughed and asked myself, "Why is this song coming to mind?" Then all of a sudden, I felt the presence of the Lord and Holy Spirit say: "Yes, son, here comes My Bride. Here comes My glorious Church."
An Hour of Preparation, Restoration and Redemption for His Bride
The Lord says: "This is an hour that I'm causing the Church, My Bride, to arise and come before the world like never before. I'm inviting the world to come and see My Bride in a new way. This is an hour of preparation, restoration and redemption for My Bride. In times past, the world has seen My Bride in her various states. The world has mocked, yes, even laughed," but the Lord says: "Behold, here comes My Bride. Here she comes in fullness of power, fullness of strength and fullness of integrity. Although the world has seen her as a harlot, although many have viewed her at times in a state of vain glory; behold, My Bride is coming forth."
God says: "It's an hour of restoration, honor and consecration unto God for My beloved. It is in this hour that I invite the world to see My Bride. They will see My people clothed fully in My glory."
The Spirit of the Lord says: "I'm raising up My burning ones who are devoted to My presence; those who have recklessly abandoned themselves to see the dreams and desires of My heart manifested in the earth. My laid-down lovers will lead in the nations. I will entrust My glory, authority and secrets to those who are a part of My Bride."
God is raising up His "Nazarite nation" in the earth. God is saying: "I'm raising up those who will drink of Me (John 7:37). I'm raising up the long-haired, bearded ones like the John the Baptists who will prepare the way of the Lord. There's a greater dimension of the Lord's glory and strength coming upon My people who will give themselves in this hour unto Me with wholehearted devotion."
A Returning of the Bride Back to the Atar of Intercession
God says: "As My Bride is coming forth, there is a return of the Bride back to the altar of intercession. This is not just any type of prayer. This is relentless intercession. Yes, in the place of prayer, I am raising up those who will pursue Me. Out of My Bride there is a radical reforming army arising. It's My worshiping warriors. This is an hour for the forerunners to forge their head in the Spirit of Intercession. Yes, this is an hour that the fires of prayer and revival increase as My Bride stands before Me, her Bridegroom King. The world will see a demonstration of breakthrough, miracles, healings and salvation. It's harvest time now," says the Lord (John 4:35).
Writing a New Storyline for This Generation
God says: "I want to write a new storyline with My beloved Bride for this generation and the generations to come. It is My desire that no one is excluded."
Revival history was never meant to be our ceiling but to be our floor in this generation. God is inviting us to go after more, to pursue more, to dream for more, to possess more. It's not only time for revival, "It's the hour of reformation," says the Lord. "As My Bride stands firm before Me, the Spirit of the Lord is asking the Church: 'Will you take this Man?'" This is an hour where God says: "I'm restoring the zeal of the Lord and the awe and wonder of My presence. The world will see a Church that is fascinated by the love of Jesus, a Church that is madly in love with His presence, His power and His glory. I'm going to cause My Church, My Bride to be captivated by My eyes of beauty, My eyes of fire."
His Promises Still Stand: This is a Year of Breakthrough and Open Doors
"As this year has come in—2018 and the Hebrew year of 5778—My promises still stand that this is a year of breakthrough, a year of open doors, a year of gateways being opened." The Sprit says: "This is the hour of the turn-around, for My Church and for My glorious Bride. This is an hour that I'm raising My Church up to live in unity, honor and strength. I'm presenting My glorious Bride before the earth."
"Yes, here comes the Bride. Here comes the Bride. Yes, here comes My army of laid-down lovers fully adorned, bold, courageous; mantled in My glory, mantled in My power, in My presence. This word is for My universal Church. Yes, here comes the Bride," says the Lord. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
