I am stripping away the veneers and façades that have marred the face of My people – restoring My church to its place and purpose. The stripping process is not pleasant, and it is for you to decide whether this is completed in you. However, it is for your benefit that you cooperate and endure. As I reveal the beauty of your identity in Me, I will position you in your prophetic destiny. This positioning is not to escape spiritual warfare but a strategic placement of you for My Kingdom’s glory. Do not be afraid, for in surrendering your will to Mine, I will complete and perfect that which concerns you. What was a façade will be replaced by authenticity and honesty as you learn to walk in the identity of who I created you to be from the foundations of the earth. It is the identity of an overcomer who knows their God, discerning all things, understanding the times, walking by My Spirit in the place I have positioned you – a place of victory!
2 Tim. 2:19-21, “Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: ‘The Lord knows those who are His,’ and, ‘Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.’ But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.” NKJV
Col. 2:6-10, “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving. Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.” NKJV
Eph. 2:4-10, “But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” NKJV
