This is what I heard the Lord say to me:
HOW CAN YOU LOVE A GOD YOU DO NOT KNOW?
HOW CAN YOU BELIEVE WHAT I AM TRYING TO SHARE WITH YOU IF YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT ME?
“Daughter – this is good! You are right in your speech as when others see who you are – who has shown all you have – leave it with them – leave your light for you do as I ask. When they see your love for Me filling your words, they too want and yearn for what makes you shine. Tell the about Me and let Me do the rest!
You cannot be brought into the Light until you have been reconciled in the darkness. Is not the saying, “There is always darkness before the dawn!” To truly understand the Light – you MUST experience darkness or else how can you tell one from the other? What one lacks and what one holds? If the darkness is kept, how can you clearly see, know and understand Light’s true purpose, truth and reason for being?”
The Lord follows patterns, numbers, specific days of the year because He is a God of Order. The three (3) days that He allows this darkness to be present, is of HIS OWN REASONING and we do not know the importance of His Patterns. Patterns, cycles of the past that repeat themselves over and over throughout the Bible, shows God is consistent and true to His Words and Promises. If nothing is “new under the sun” as He so states – then there is “nothing new under the sun” and He must repeat what was already allowed in the past to come into event again in the future.
Darkness, or in the darkness, is were all the “work”, all the “promises” He made to His Children, must manifest to life – it’s where all He told of is brought front & center upon not only us, but the world so the reconciling or reconciliation can begin. It’s the “clothes change” between scenes of a play. Everything set on stage, all the prepping, dressing, positioning of the props is done – behind the closed curtain of the stage. All is done “backstage” to make sure when the curtain is lifted – all they have rehearsed, prepared for and waited for comes-to-life…goes as planned and comes off without a hitch! It’s the “Standing Ovation” at the end that tells those on stage “Well done – good job!” All the changes are made in the darkness of the stage – not when they walk out into the lights for at that point – all should be completed and movement, once they walk through the opened curtain onto the main stage, should be familiar, natural and known.”
Jesus has always shown a form of darkness just before the dawn because one must know and appreciate the “Promised Land” they are standing in once He removes the darkness. How else are you going to truly know what He has delivered you from, and to?
This has always held a Pattern of Deliverance and Promise. Is now not also a time of this? If so, why would the Pattern not be allowed as He has always done? Changes are made in the dark – deliverance follows change – promise and light follow all who have been delivered…always!
This is how we know that “Yes, there will be three (3) days of darkness before the Coming of the Lord” for He comes to change us so we may be delivered into His Ultimate Heavenly Promised Land!
