Prophetess Mary L. Johnson-Gordon
JESUS IS ALIVE! HE IS RISEN!
WE ARE ~ HIS BETROTHED
DRESSED ~ WAITING!
April 15, 2020
JUST A FEW NIGHTS AGO THE LORD gave me a beautiful night vision:
Great numbers of Women and even little girls of different ethnic groups, including Jewish, were entering a huge elegant palace-like building where only Bridal Attire was on display. It was immediately clear to me that these exquisite gowns had been specifically selected for The Betrothed ~ for their choosing ~ without need for monetary payment!
As they looked through the seemingly infinite selection of various designs, fabrics and colors, the only words used between them, or emotions expressed, were for encouragement of each other!
Then I noticed there were a few who were holding on to feelings unworthiness, having lost self-appreciation, and they were slow to choose a Gown. But we were able to encourage them until they also made their selections finding great delight as they saw themselves…elegantly dressed and able to smile…wearing a blue self-fitting fabric to diminish appearance of weight!
Watching the delight of each woman/girl, I noticed there were no cumbersome veils/trains to hinder their movement around the room. They were simply waiting and wondering when the Groom might arrive and whether the Groom would approve of them in His EYE sight ~ as though they still didn't know Who He Would Be. They were all so beautiful.
I CAME TO UNDERSTAND that my role ~ and the role of EACH Co-Laborer, Prophet, Intercessor, Seer. and Believer in the Dressing Room of the Bride ~ is to Oversee, Nurture, and Encourage Everyone AS ONE WHOLE BODY OF BELIEVERS (man, woman and child) who are waiting for The Promised Groom.
In the vision, ALL were wondering How/When their Groom would appear (much as it was with the pre-arranged marriage of Mary and Joseph ~ Luke 2:1-5), yet ALL were feeling assured it would BE a perfect Wedding! SO TOO, we must assure ALL those within our reach, that the WEDDING/MARRIAGE of we/The Church/The Bride, and OUR ETERNAL LIFE TOGETHER WITH THE GROOM ~ OUR LORD JESUS ~ WILL BE PERFECT!
“For I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy;
for I betrothed you to one husband,
so that to Christ I might present you as a pure virgin.”
2 Corinthians 11:2
THE MORNING AFTER THIS VISION, I was directed to Luke 4 ~ a long chapter ~ even as I still pondered the Bridal Preparation Scene.
Within this chapter, the Apostle Luke tells of Jesus’ Testing[s] by the devil in many ways; how He overcame them all by quoting the Word; that He was Not accepted in His hometown, and departed to other places in the region where He laid His hands on Simon Peter’s critically ill mother-in-law, Rebuked the High Fever and it left immediately; later He Spoke to a demon of uncleanness and Cast it OUT! It left as the man was thrown down but unhurt! People began to talk about Jesus’ Work and how many people with various sicknesses and diseases sought His Healing Power. He Healed them All. Then, being tired, He isolated Himself in the Desert to rest… so that He could keep Preaching, Teaching, and Healing as He was sent to do!
AFTER reading this chapter, I asked the LORD to show me connection between the Vision and what He was doing during that time of His ministry. Immediately I understood that His message to us in this moment is two-fold:
- BE the dressed Bride, Waiting for our Lover with expectation of our personal Groom.
- Occupy Until then...Doing the Works we’ve been assigned and following His Examples!
Re-reading the Chapter, the words “HIGH Fever” caught my Attention! Many people today are experiencing high fevers of anxiety, fear and lawlessness. Yet we KNOW that the LORD has given us Authority over such attacks and HEALING occurs by SPEAKING GOD’S WORD into the condition ~ even from a distance. Other times we need to be present in the situation to Rebuke the condition in Jesus’ Name. Casting Out is always done by Jesus’ Power/Authority/Commands, specifically and directly given to us to order a demon OUT and AWAY!
JESUS DEMONSTRATED this Power and Authority which He’s given us to Heal sin-sicknesses and physical diseases, according to the condition and leading of the Holy Spirit!
THIS IS A GREAT FAITH-ACTION TIME!
FAITH IN WHO JESUS IS ~ OUR RISEN LORD AND BRIDEGROOM ~ ALLOWS US TO ACCEPT AND ACT WITH THE SUPERNATURAL/PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF HIS WILL, POWER AND AUTHORITY IN THIS TIME ~ THIS SEASON OF SPEAKING TRUTH WHILE EXPECTING VICTORIOUS OUTCOMES!
LET US PRAY that through us the LORD will Lay His Hands Upon the many Lost SOULS of the world, even as He has done for multitudes in Nations around the world in recent times! Let us walk in pure hearts and pray our Strength GROWS Through Him ~ even as we Trust Him to Manifest His Power in such a Way that it will BE Felt and Told/Witnessed About, as millions share their personal Encounters with Him.
In Jesus Name we Proclaim It So! Amen.
