Greetings to all the Brethren
I had this vision during prayer one morning and wanted to share it with you for your edification.
I saw a vision of the Bride with an embellished gown, blowing the trumpet.
God gave the sign first in the sky with the trumpet (http://www.second8thweek.org/content.php?id=155#) and the Bride did hear His call and now her reciprocation is equal to Him, she is blowing the trumpet calling all to this place of refuge which she experience in Him. She is a testimony to all nations.
This is the season of reciprocation where our faith is serving God in fruit and our reciprocation is equal to what He initiated in Christ for our righteousness and justification.
I also was reflecting on this vision and received the words :
soft, reachable and approachable.
This speaks to me about what God is doing in us individually and at the same time what He is working in the Bride, for in our unity we are the Bride. She is made to be :
Soft = pliable and malleable through her charity ;
she is made reachable through the avenues God creates for sharing;
and she is made approachable through the virtues of Christ that is worked within her.
This is so fantastic! We are made free in Him, we do not need to figure out what we need to do to be soft, reachable and approachable to those who are without, cause what God is saying now is that as we continue with Him in His prophetic path, this is what He is doing in the Body with each revelation that we pick up and work with in Faith.
He is revealing His work in us as well as the progression of His plan to us, that He is making the Bride to be these three things to bring His pleasure to fruition !
Mat 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
another thought I had was when I read Joshua chapter 6, where the children of Israel walked around the city Jericho.
Jos 6:2 And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour.
Jos 6:3 And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days.
Jos 6:4 And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets.
Jos 6:5 And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram's horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him.
This is also symbolic of the time we are in as we see the Bride blowing the trumpet, Jericho which represents the false religious system and the moral code of man will crumble. Verse 5 is also symbolic of the overcoming and the rapture.
Our zeal is a gift from above as we listen to the voice of the Spirit of God. We are encouraged and admonished to remain in the Faith for the coming of the Lord is truly on our door step. Remain tethered to your Hope in Christ, brethren for our reward is made manifest in our consistency.
