Recently as I sat with the Holy Spirit, He showed me a Vision of a Beautiful Woman who was sound asleep. This reminded me of the old Disney movie “Sleeping Beauty”, for this woman (even though she was asleep) was extremely beautiful but appeared as though she would never Awaken.
As I looked upon her face, Hands seemed to appear upon her shoulders and those hands began to shake her as if they were trying to Awaken Her from her Sleeping state, but it didn’t seem to work, as the woman (no matter how much the hands shook her) remained Asleep!
I said, “Holy Spirit, who is this Sleeping Woman?” And He said, “This Woman is the Bride of Christ!” So I said, “Why is she still asleep? Even after all of the attempts to shake her to consciousness?” And He Responded, “Because only the Love of God is really able to Awaken Her from Her Slumber!”
Just as He said this, Jesus Christ appeared (as if hovering over her body) as He did He then leaned down and kissed her on her lips. She blinkingly opened her eyes, smiled, and then Rose to her Feet. As soon as her feet hit the floor of the Room, it was as if her raiment completely transformed instantly from that of a Princesses Apparel to that of a WARRIOR BRIDE!
The Armour Of God Appeared upon her from top to bottom and God’s Light permeated every part of Her! She looked like a Woman Clothed with the Sun (Revelation 12:1).
While many things have been shaking the Body of Christ in the recent past, as well as in the current seasons, the Bride has still been fast asleep in most cases, for only the Love of God will awaken her from her slumber in this hour (Song of Solomon 8:4) and when she does Awaken, she will be clad for War!
“Therefore He says, Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall shine (make day dawn) upon you and give you light.” Ephesians 5:14
“Awake, awake, put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city; for henceforth there shall no more come into you the uncircumcised and the unclean. Shake yourself from the dust; arise, sit [erect in a dignified place], O Jerusalem; loose yourself from the bonds of your neck, O captive Daughter of Zion.” Isaiah 52:1-2
As Jesus Christ leaned over the Sleeping Woman, I saw Him breathe the Breath of Life back into her with a single kiss, and that Kiss not only awakened her (and got her to her feet), it turned her into the Fully Armed Warrior Bride of Christ!
Only when the Bride is Fully Awake will we see her taking dominion in the earth like the earth has been anticipating (Romans 8:18-21). The earth is the Lords and the fullness of it, but the jurisdiction and stewardship of it was given to the Bride.
The Bride is Being Awakened in this time!!! And when she stands to her feet, completely Awakened and Empowered by God’s Love, the enemy’s kingdom is about to fall!
It’s time to Wake Up Church, (Encounter His Love), and Arise as if from the Dead so that you can take your place at His Side, for that is originally where You came from Anyway (John 19:34)!
