Bride/Bridegroom

“Each of Mine Will Go Through the Garden.”

Garden of Gethsemane

I’d like to share an experience from the morning of November 10th.

That morning began with me throwing a “fit” before the Lord.  I was in agony over a situation that had arisen and was literally wailing to God, desperately wanting Him to do something about it, or remove me from it.  It was then that my phone rang.  A sister in Christ had told me she’d call at that particular time to discuss a horrific situation which had happened prior to her becoming a follower of Jesus Christ.

I’m not at liberty to disclose too many details, but as she spoke, it became obvious one of the main things she fought to hold on to during this ordeal was her sanity, faith that there was a God, and that He would somehow see her through. This was a hostage situation and the perpetrators were satanic.  Every evil mind control tactic, as well as physical attacks, you can imagine was used against her to get her to succumb, so she’d give her dominion and will over to them.

She lost control of every aspect of her life, as even her thoughts were being manipulated.  I’ll stop here, because her story will be made public in a couple weeks, and I’ll provide a link to the interview on the website when available.  But as she and I talked, the Lord began to speak to both of us, giving amazing revelations.  The following is a part of what I was personally shown which relates specifically to what William has shared:

At one point she said, “Diana, the Church has no idea what they’ll be facing, and I fear many will give up their faith.”  Immediately, I heard in my spirit,

“Each of Mine will go through the Garden.”

As I heard those words, I saw Jesus bowed before His Father in the Garden of Gethsemane, asking if there was any way the cup could be removed from Him; was there any way the plan could be changed?  But in the same breathe, without hesitation, He surrendered His will, His comfort, and all His earthly desires to the will of His Father.  As His flesh screamed out to live, He handed it over to be crucified.

I was horrified as I thought of my pathetic attempts to get God to cater to my wants and desires just that very morning!  My situation was not a matter of life and death, but the ease and comfort of my flesh!  The Lord showed me how my actions were a representation of the Church.  The message of being crucified with Christ is offensive to most of the “church, and you won’t hear it talked about on Sunday mornings.

My friend is correct.  What she experienced will be similar to what some of us will go through.  The Church as a whole cannot even imagine what lies ahead.  Because of the refusal to submit our will to the Father, allowing the flesh to be crucified on a daily basis, many will never allow themselves to be led to the Garden, and end up denying their faith.

The Word of God plainly says if we’re to share His glory, we must also share in His suffering…  We must die daily, allowing the flesh to be crucified with its passions and desires.   The Lord is saying,

“Each of Mine will go through the Garden.”

The Bride of Christ must become like Him to be united with Him!  For her to be able to walk in the Fullness of His Glory, She too must allow herself to be led to the Garden.  No flesh can look upon His Glory – much less contain it, so there must be complete and total destruction of it.

I believe I was shown a time is coming when each of us will be called upon to completely surrender our will, with all fleshly need and desire, to the Father.  It will be the final, complete “crucifixion” of our flesh.  It may look different for each one of us, but each must say,

  “Nevertheless, not my will but Yours be done!”

Scripture References:

Romans 6:5-9, “For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin.  For he who has died has been freed from sin.  Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more.  Death no longer has dominion over Him.”

Isaiah 55:9, “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”

Galatians 5:24, “Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”

Matthew 26:36-39, “… My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.”

 Romans 8:17, “…if we are to share His glory, we must also share His suffering.”

Only by falling in love with our Lord can we say yes to this. The Lord has been telling me to spend more time with Him than ever before to gain deeper understand than has been available to me in the past of the depths of love he has for me (us) and it has been sweet. Below is a link to a teaching by Francis Chan on rejoicing in suffering done at a conference at IHOPKC. It speaks of how he was impacted to learn that this was one of the 5 pillars of an underground church in China.… Read more »

Wether we live or die in this flesh, let all that we do be for the glory of God. This life is a vapor and quickly passes away so whatever we endure is nothing compared to the eternity ahead of is with Jesus. Think about Jesus liv8ng His entire life overcoming everything for the time of glory on the cross. Think of the hours he hung there, the torture and rejection beforehand, the temptation by the devil and other instances we don’t know about when He could have called upon the Father for help but instead He submitted His will… Read more »

For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. I Thessalonians 5:9‭-‬10 NKJV For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to… Read more »

Luke 22:43 (ASV)“Father, if You are willing, take this cup from Me. Yet not My will, but Yours be done.” And there appeared unto him an ANGEL from heaven, strengthening him. Angel’s will be there for us too I imagine..I can’t even imagine how Jesus felt in that moment becoming sin and more human then he had ever felt emotionally and physically BUT He did it for us, what love..a love so hard to even comprehend at times. God Bless! I pray God strengthens all of us to the point we need to be at, after the surrender came the… Read more »

As I prepare myself to become more separate from the world and desire to be a part of the remnant Bride, I find myself saying to the Lord that I’m willing to be a martyr for Him. I haven’t shared that with others before but want to make my words public now. I do hope in the rapture but strongly sense in my spirit we are to give all to Him including our lives.

Funny I stumbled upon this page.

What is happening in my life just now feels like an agony. There is so much uncertainty about the future.
I believe God has been asking me to trust Him, though I am deeply ashamed to say I am finding that very difficult as so much has changed for the worse.
Thank you for posting this work. I will remember it as encouragement. God Bless you.

YES! Surrendering ALL to Father when wooed and driven into the garden/wilderness is the only safe place to be, oddly enough, yet as we know our King suffered more and had no sin. v

Victoria,
That is exactly! God desires us to trust Him enough with everything so that He can lead us to our own “Garden” experience. He will not force us to go there. We must desire it more than our own fleshly desires and the things of this world. And as our King suffered for us, knowing the joy which was set before Him, we, too, must be willing to suffer. We MUST become like Him before we can be joined with Him!

Amen…we’ve been given some insight to the three days of darkness and I look forward to putting more puzzle pieces together!

Hope,
The wonderful thing is that our Loving Father is continuing to woo us to draw even closer to Him so that He can reveal those puzzle pieces to us and help us put them together to show us the “Big Picture” which is so much more than we could imagine!
