Our Betrothed

The afternoon of June 24, 2017, I had an encounter with the Father, which not only transformed my heart, but gave me a glimpse of the Father’s amazing love for His Son.

Since posting ‘The Proposal’ on June 12th, and receiving the instruction to “Prepare Yourself for Him,” I’ve been consumed with the task, and had been asking, “Lord, show me how to prepare!”

I’d entered a time of prayer and fasting the previous evening, and shortly after noon on the 24th, was sitting on my sofa singing praises to the Lord.  All of a sudden, I felt an indescribable explosion of LOVE fill my heart, and instantly knew it was the Love of the Father for His Son.  Tears began to flow as I spoke the following by revelation and inspiration of the Holy Spirit:

“Father, you love Him so!”

“He is so precious to you!”

“I know you are fulfilling your promises to Him.”

“Please give Him your very best.”

“Lord, I ask You to remove me if I’m not your best for Him!”

I then asked to be given understanding, and to know His will in these matters, and covenanted with Him to do whatever he asked of me.

The Father Answers

As I sat stunned by the immense Love still flooding my heart to overflow, I heard the following:

“He is your Betrothed.”

“You must remove every vestige of previous lovers from your dwelling.”

“Your primary job will be to continually seek ME in prayer and fastings.”

“You are to receive from your Bridegroom and be a witness to Him.”

“I have prepared you for Him!”

“He will spread His covering over you!”

I was then prompted to “whisper” to the Bridegroom, “I love you!”

Interpretation:

The Bride is being positioned to “reciprocate” the love the Bridegroom has for her. He’s beginning to move the Bride into position to freely give back the love without it being selfish or fleshly.  Through the ages,whenever the Body of Christ would begin in the Spirit, “I love you Lord with all my heart,” it eventually became self-centered, “Bless me, give me…”

This is going to change! The Bride will no longer be demanding of God to fulfill the things and desires of this world, but to yield to His will alone!The Bride wants the absolute best for her Bridegroom, even if it means she be found unfit and cast away.  This is truly about becoming a living sacrifice (Romans 12:1).  He’s preparing the Bride for the union with the Bridegroom!

The Father’s answer tells us our part in preparing for our Beloved:

“He is your Betrothed.”

“…For I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you a chaste virgin to Christ.” (2 Corinthians 11:2)  We must consecrate and separate ourselves unto Him alone – forsaking all others.

“You are to receive from your Bridegroom and be a witness to Him.”

As we separate and consecrate ourselves only unto Him, we’re given the keys to the Kingdom. (Matt. 16:19)

He will freely give us all things!  (Romans 8:32)

We’re now to be witnesses to our Beloved to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8)

It’s by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony, that Satan himself will be defeated!  (Revelation 12:11)

“I have prepared you for Him!”

I have to say, when I heard these words, my heart soared!  The Word tells us many are called, but few are chosen (Matthew 22:14).

The Father has promised His Son, Jesus, a bride without spot or wrinkle (Eph. 5:27).Once we accept His proposal of marriage, preparation for the marriage begins!  The Bride must then make herself ready (Rev. 19:7).

Saints, this process requires our active participation.  The days just ahead will be filled with calamities and terror in the natural realm like mankind has never seen.  Ah, but the Lord is preparing a people!  His people, the very Bride of Christ, will be used mightily in the biggest rescue mission ever to hit the planet!

The prophet Daniel talked about a time when, “…the people who know their God shall be strong, and do great exploits” (Daniel 11:32).

Jesus said those who believe in Him would do even greater works than He did (John 14:12).  My question is, why are we not seeing greater works than Jesus did?

This requires our receiving from the Bridegroom everything He died to give us.  We must then begin to walk it out; to walk in the power, dominion, and authority of Jesus (Luke 10:19).  Jesus said, “I give you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means harm you.”

Saints, our Bridegroom is beckoning us, “Come! Receive of Me.  Be a witness unto Me, and I will spread My covering over you!”

To Be Continued

God willing, I’ll soon share more of what the Lord’s revealed about His protective covering, along with the three distinct levels of warfare which will play out in the days ahead.

    I wept as I read these words! How glorious is the plan that our loving Father has set before us! To think that now is the time for us to prepare for the coming of our Bridegroom! May this reverberate over this earth and proclaim the news to prepare!

  2. dpulliam Says:

    William,
    Yes, we must be about preparing ourselves for Him. Don’t you believe we oftentimes think we have more time than we really do…

  3. Elvin Nunez Says:

    We as the saints and soldier’s of Christ Jesus must be aware of our orders by and how to fight by our enemies, satan is on his way out of being the prince of this world, however he still thinks he can change the fact God has giving us the victory.

  4. dpulliam Says:

    Amen, Elvin! You are absolutely correct, as our enemy will attempt to overthrow the plan of God until he is finally removed forever!

  5. Hope Says:

    I believe you had a Message a while back about how we are to consecrate ourselves…this goes right along with that as I have been curious how to do that. Thank you for posting!

  6. dpulliam Says:

    Hope,
    Yes, act of consecrating yourself is to set yourself apart, washing and anointing, for Holy use. God willing, I will be posting more specific things the Lord told me while on an isolated cabin trip.
    Blessings to you!

    Diana,
    Yes, we, the Body of Christ, have “heard” this for so long – prepare because our Lord is coming! We think we have much time left and so do not look for nor do we anticipate His coming. We have become distracted by the things of this world, but God is saying – Prepare! We would be wise to humbly seek Him! Our Lord is truly coming!

  8. Frank Dollbaum Says:

    Wow, what a confirmation! Diana this is awesome, but I think people are missing the understanding of the 1st commandment and this is what our Father is seeking. LOVE the Lord your God with all of your heart, all of your mind, all of your soul and all of your strength! The keywords are LOVE and ALL. Your posts have given details leading up to the point that to prepare is to forsake ALL and focus ALL into LOVE for Jesus! We don’t have to do anything else but just seek Him first and continue to ask for more of Him! The just shall live by faith but if ALL of our faith is not in Jesus, is not in His power, is not in His word and promises then we need to get rid of that unbelief and become sanctified and consecrated to His complete ownership through the word, through prayer and through fasting. This is amazing to me because I literally just started fasting at the end of last week and I promised the Lord I will not stop until He reveals my purpose for Him to me or reveals more of Himself to me or whatever has to happen I just want to draw deeper into Him until I explode! I dont care if He has to smash me to pieces and rebuild, reshape or remold me. He is the potter and we are the clay. Glory to God! We have to turn our minds off and let our hearts go and fall completely in love with our Lord! That’s all it comes down to is loving Him like when you first met the love of your life and all you want to do is be with them or talk to them every second of every day. That is what we must have for God. All of the tests, all of the trials, all of the refining is to bring us into His heart! Praise God! Praise our Lord Jesus! Thank you our wonderful Savior and Husband!
    Isaiah 54:4-8
    4 “Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed;
    Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame;
    For you will forget the shame of your youth,
    And will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore.
    5 For your Maker is your husband,
    The Lord of hosts is His name;
    And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
    He is called the God of the whole earth.
    6 For the Lord has called you
    Like a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit,
    Like a youthful wife when you were refused,”
    Says your God.
    7 “For a mere moment I have forsaken you,
    But with great mercies I will gather you.
    8 With a little wrath I hid My face from you for a moment;
    But with everlasting kindness I will have mercy on you,”
    Says the Lord, your Redeemer.

    Over the last couple of days, it finally donned on me that on the 21 st of August the solar eclipse was our engagement ring as the Bride of Christ. I heard people saying it was like a diamond ring, but that didn’t resonate with me. I never received an engagement ring,let alone a diamond anything. I thought them pretentious and gaudy, an over priced bauble. I think the reason it took me this long to see this is because of my wrong thinking. I thought of as myself as being no nonsense, humble, and practical. The truth was the opposite. I was just trying to justify and glaze over the wounds inflicted by one who promised to be my earthly husband and protector. However, my Holy Beloved One knew this, and helped me to break the chains that bound me to the past, and to start to see myself as He sees me. Take it from me, this is a big deal. First, please know my baring my soul, is not so much about my former spouse as it is about the difference of being in and of the world and being called out and set apart for Him. I asked my spouse to marry me, he agreed but didn’t want me to tell anyone, especially his family who we were visiting at the time, till after we were married. No, I wasn’t pregnant, we were in our mid 20s, and both of us were in the military. Yet, he was worried that his parents wouldn’t approve, so everything was secretive and hidden. However contrary to this, my True Love (Jesus) has asked His Father before He asked me, and Abba Father agreed, nothing was kept secret. Next, He asked me (not me Him)and He said He was going to prepare a place for me, I knew this to be true, but I still was anxious because I felt like the wait has been forever, I allowed self doubt in. Oh but if there is any small doubt remaining, it is gone, think about is the King of the universe just proposed to His Bride (you and me) in the presence of all. So, now from 21 Aug to 30 Sept, seems to be a 40 day purification process for the Bride to be….I always loved the story of Esther.

    Petra,
    What a contrast our relationship with our Beloved is to those of the world! Thank you for your testimony, as I know many, if not most, of us can fully relate to.
    Blessings!

  15. William Thompson Says:

    Diana,
    There truly is a definite contrast of our relationship with our Beloved than that of the world!! The world has polluted the precious things of God and one of those is that marriage relationship! It is no wonder so very many people are not able to see clearly the love of our Lord Jesus, Who is our Coming Bridegroom and the power of the love of God!

  16. William Thompson Says:

    Petra,
    How wonderful is our God and Father Who has revealed such depth of understanding to you! This set period is indeed something special and I pray that people humbly come before Him in true repentance so that they may receive this precious gift of His love! I believe that Sept. 30 is a marker of a glorious work that the Father has set to do a great work!!

  17. Petra Ann Says:

    Amen

  18. dpulliam Says:

    Awesome song!!! Thank you for sharing.

  19. Petra Ann Says:

    I would like to submit one of my favorite songs and hope it blesses all here. It’s Dance with me oh Lover of my soul. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbuYxxxxhQw

    Please enjoy even though there are pictures/representations of what the artists believe Jesus looks like. For as we know, we can behold a sunrise but never fully capture it’s magnificence in any form or image. Even more so with God, for “No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is Himself God and is at the Father’s side has made Him known. ” John 1:18, Petra
