See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. 1 John 3:1-3.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

You do not have to be everywhere at once—there is only one place you need to be and that is with Me. One thing is necessary. It is all summed up in one Word, one Name, and it is JESUS. He is all you need. He is the only Name given among men by which you must be saved. Acts 4:12.

Anything you ask in His Name, He will do. And anything you ask Me in His Name, I will give you. John 16:23-24. Right after Jesus guaranteed My answer to requests in His Name, Jesus said, “These things I have spoken to you in figurative language; an hour is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figurative language but will tell you plainly of the Father. In that day you will ask in My name, and I do not say to you that I will request of the Father on your behalf; for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me and have believed that I came forth from the Father. I came forth from the Father and have come into the world; I am leaving the world again and going to the Father.” John 16:25-28.

Yes, if you love Jesus you have loved Me. Jesus manifested My Name to you. John 17:6, Jesus is exact image of My glory. I was in Jesus reconciling the world to Myself. See how much I love you in letting you be called children of God. You are now My children. And it is time to grow you up. I am growing you up.  Little children squabble and fight, cry and throw temper fits when things don’t go their way, that is not what you saw and learned in Christ. Beloved, now you are My children, and it has not appeared as yet what you will be. You know that when Jesus appears, you will be like Him, because you will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. 1 John 3:2-3.

How do you purify yourself? Jesus told you. He told His disciples they were clean already because of the Word He had spoken to them. I sanctify you by My Word. John 17:17. Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. Ephesians 5:25-27. Holy. Be Holy as I am Holy. For as Christ is, so are you in this world. Set apart, consecrated, sanctified, HOLY.

No one hates his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church,  because you are members of His body. “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is great and has many layers of application; but it refers to Christ and the church. All of you are the bride of Christ. And brides are not babies. I am growing you up. No longer an infant or a child, but a bride. One to be welcomed, one who comes with confidence to My throne of grace and receives mercy and finds grace to help just when she needs it. Wisdom. “We have a little sister, and she has no breasts; what shall we do for our sister on the day when she is spoken for? If she is a wall, we will build on her a battlement of silver; but if she is a door, we will barricade her with planks of cedar.” “I was a wall, and my breasts were like towers; then I became in his eyes as one who finds shalom.” Song of Songs 8:8-10.

Isha (אישה), I am growing you up. Isha in Hebrew is the woman, the wife, the bride. “Woman,” Jesus said to Mary, “How does that concern us?” Stress, worldly wine, anxiety at lack—how does that concern you? Just do whatever He tells you and watch supply in abundance overflow.

It is time to receive throne room assignments. The past is over, finished and gone, it is time to step up and sing a new song. Songs of deliverance. I surround you with songs of deliverance. It is time. It is time to sing them for the world. Set My people free. The sign of freedom is the Cross. By it you were crucified to the world and the world to you.

I am growing you up for throne room assignments. Put all else aside, sin with all its encumbrances, and abide.

My apostle Paul wrote, “When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.” 1 Corinthians 13:11.

I will direct your steps. How? My mature sons are led by My Spirit. By tongues. Touching the sacred, touching the Holy things. Only the consecrated can touch My vessels in My house. Under the Old Covenant the Levites were set apart as My portion to take care of the Holy things. Now, by His Blood, My Son has released you from your sins and made you a kingdom of priests, a royal priesthood, unto Me. Be Holy as I am Holy, HOLY, HOLY, HOLY, thrice Holy. Be unstained by the things of the world. What defiles a man? Jesus told you, “the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and those defile the man. For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, anger, slanders. These are the things which defile the man.” Matthew 15:18-20. Unrestrained speech and emotions defile a man. Conform your tongue to the HOLY. The Holy Language of the truth spoken in love. The sacred tongue. Come out  you who carry My vessels, who are My vessels.

The name “Levi” means “attached.” The Levites were Mine and I was their portion. Attach to the vine of My Son in love and bear much fruit. Attached, consecrated, set apart, HOLY. First fruits of redemption. And if the first is consecrated the rest is Holy too. First fruits. The fruit of your lips must be holy. Words offered to Me. Your words should be for Me and not for yourselves. The fruit of the Spirit should be on your lips. Galatians 5:22-23. The Holy Spirit whom I have given to those who obey Me. Acts 5:32. “Return, O Israel, to the LORD your God, for you have stumbled because of your iniquity. Take words with you and return to the LORD. Say to Him, ‘Take away all iniquity and receive us graciously, that we may present the fruit of our lips.” Hosea 14:1-2. Lips without deceit, anger, malice, gossip, and judging. The fruit of the Holy Spirit on your lips, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.” Galatians 5:22-26.

If you got off today and spoke in anger and passion, you got into the flesh and out of the spirit. And that will bring death. You will have no peace in you until you come to Me and repent, confess the sin, and let Me cleanse you from all unrighteousness, and then get back in the light and start up again. I am growing you up. For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises again, Proverbs 24:16, but when he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, because I AM the One who holds his hand. Psalm 37:24. Say with My prophet Micah, “Do not rejoice over me, O my enemy. Though I fall I will rise. Though I dwell in darkness, the LORD is a light for me.” Micah 7:8.

I love you. Take heart all you who hope in Me, I am growing you up. And there are often growing pains and as you learn to walk a few falls.

Furthermore, we had earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live? For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness. All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness. Therefore, strengthen the hands that are weak and the knees that are feeble, and make straight paths for your feet, so that the limb which is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather be healed. Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled. Hebrews 12:9-15.
