Cleft of the Rock (Repost)

Exodus 33:22

And it shall come to pass, while My glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a cleft of the rock, and will cover thee with My hand while I pass by:
The glory of the Lord is where our transformation begins and ends. As we open our hearts and minds to submit to God, and the Holy Spirit gains full entrance, the glorious light of God will penetrate every shadow of vanity and human weakness. Then when we seek Him with our whole hearts, He will cover us in His secret place and give us a glimpse of that glory, and where He is leading us. He is the Rock.

The LORD Put Forth His Hand

Jeremiah 1:9

Then the LORD put forth His hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put My words in thy mouth.
When we humbly submit our lives to the Lord and resist the devil, He has promised to draw near to us. Then as we truly flow with the Holy Spirit and fix our hearts firmly on the Lord, the finger of God will touch our lips and our lives. The power of God will manifest in an anointing to speak the Word of the Lord boldly, with God-confidence. Prophetic utterance is simply this: the wisdom of God flowing through us to enlighten, encourage, and comfort one another. As we put His words in our mouths, we move into the perfection of the body of Christ.

The Earth Shall Be Filled

Habakkuk 2:14

For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
Knowledge of the glory of the LORD will overflow the whole earth, beginning with the thousand year reign of Christ. Satan will be bound during this time as well, so rebellion will not be a result of deception or ignorance. The LORD has promised that any nation that does not worship Him during the millennium will not receive any rain. Rivers of living, healing water; flowing out from beneath the throne of God, will be poured out on the nations that worship the LORD of hosts. This is the beginning of His divine government: the requirements are not grievous, the blessings are eternal and unlimited, and the penalties are just and clearly stated. His government will be corruption free, and will never stop increasing; to the glory of God and redemption of mankind. Praise the Last Adam, Who will glorify our mortal bodies by His quickening Spirit and preserve us in incorruption.
