Bride/Bridegroom

Are You Ready?

In the early morning hours of March 31st, 2022, as I was praying over my brothers and sisters in Christ, the Lord gave a message which I believe addresses a major concern of His people in this hour.  Please pray the Holy Spirit give you discernment to rightly divide what’s going to be shared here.

As I was bringing personally-known brethren before the throne, beseeching the Father on their behalf, I came to a particular individual and began asking that he be shown what he needed in order to be ready for the days ahead.  In most recent conversations with this brother, he’d shared how he felt the need to stock up on some things while still available and before prices sky rocketed.  He was inquiring of God as to what he needed to get more of, having a sense of urgency to get it done. 

As I was asking God to show him what else he needed, and to give him peace concerning this situation, before I finished getting the words out, the Lord said,  

“He needs more of ME!”

I was immediately convicted and went to my knees in repentance, crying out, “Oh, God, forgive us!  Forgive Your people for taking anxious thought over these things.”  I then asked to be shown what our stance should be concerning physical preparation for the days ahead.  We know the Word of God addresses troublesome times in scripture:

“A wise man sees trouble coming and prepares for it…” (Prov. 27:12).   And in Proverbs 6:6, we are told to observe the ant, who while it’s yet summer, prepares her food for the winter.  Every Christian who’s awake and aware should know what time it is; that a time of worldwide trouble is now at the door.

The Lord’s obviously having His people prepare as led by the Spirit of God, each with their own marching orders.  I know some have been told to prepare places of refuge to shelter and feed many, while others haven’t been told to gather a thing! 

I knew I needed to take this before Him in prayer, asking a deeper understanding be given to His people. 

The Holy Spirit began to show it’s about fulfilling all righteousness – not only in the spirit – but the physical.  We’re to fulfill these scriptures of preparing as we see the day approaching in physical preparations AS EACH IS DIRECTED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.  Nothing is to be done in fear, but in faith.  Whatever is not of faith is sin.  But whether one is led to “stock up” or not, the Lord wants all to understand: 

You will not be able to prepare enough in the physical for what’s comingIt’s not going to be by your strength or might – but by His spirit. 

A couple days later I decided it was time to tell my friend the Lord had said, “He needs more of Me!”  I’d been putting it off, asking God to prepare his heart to receive the message.  God answered that prayer in a mighty way!

As soon as I told him what God said, he replied, “Diana, hold on! I totally receive what God’s told you!” And he preceded to pray a prayer of repentance for taking any anxious thought.  He then told me what God had shown him the previous afternoon.  He’d been given a vision of the following:

He saw himself and others running around stocking up on physical food and such.  But the Lord instantly let him know he would not be eating much of the food being gathered; that what he would mostly be eating would be God Himself.  He then saw bread and wine as we take in communion; God made it clear he’d have very little need for physical food. 

After receiving the vision, he had a dream that next morning:   

“It was a short dream while in my semi-conscious state just as I was waking up this morning.

I was lifted up from the ground, maybe 50ft in the air.  All of a sudden, I was filled with light that shot quite dramatically through the top of my head and out through my mouth, arms, and legs. It was a very bright almost white blue light. And while it was pouring into me and out of me, I couldn’t move except to be filled with it.

I was transformed and aware that it was happening to many other people across the earth.”

(end of dream)

Later when describing the incident, he told me it was like a fusion of his physical body and the spirit of God; doing away with the flesh, creating one man out of the two, getting rid of the enmity of the flesh.  He was energized by the Spirit – by a great Light and energy.

This is another witness/confirmation of what God’s shown many saints, including myself (see related posts below), concerning the future transformation, the time when Jesus comes to fully indwell His Remnant Bride, that she may walk in all His Fullness.  This will be the time Jesus spoke of, “…He who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do…”

Brethren, this is how God answered the prayer of a saint who simply asked, “Lord, what do I need more of to be ready for the days ahead?”    I do need to mention; this brother’s a mighty prayer warrior and has an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. 

It’s those pressing in, wanting more of Him, growing in ever increasing intimacy with their Bridegroom, who can claim God’s promise of provision in the days ahead.  Closely examine Psalm 91, along with a multitude of other scriptures, because there are contingency clauses for eligibility…

Jesus said, “I am the bread of life (John 6:48).” 

“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.  Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.  For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink.  He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.  This is the bread which came down from heaven – not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead.  He who eats this bread will live forever (6:53-58).”

Remember, Jesus told His disciples, “I have food to eat that you do not know.”

The Lord’s encouraging His people in this hour.  He wants to let us know we don’t need to take any anxious thought about ANYTHING!  It will NOT be through (our) power or might, but by HIS SPIRIT!  

On a personal note:  I’ve NOT been told to stock up on food and other supplies by the Holy Spirit, but have done so of my own accord on a fairly small scale.  I’ve felt it to be the wise thing to do, but that it would be mostly for others.  The Lord’s never specifically addressed the topic of stocking up on physical food with me.  Instead, the instructions I’ve personally received from Him have been exclusively about preparing in the Spirit.  Not too long ago I too had asked if I needed to get more of anything, and all I got was silence.  Then one day, out of the blue, the Holy Spirit said,

“Now is the time to stock up on oil!”

Please pray over this message in how it may apply to you.  The Lord’s asking all of us, “Are You Ready?” May our answer be, “Yes, Lord!  I’m ready to be filled with YOU!

Thank you for your encouraging words Diana! It was also a good reminder of the most important thing and that is to be drawing near to Jesus more than ever. We must be like the wise virgins and buy ourselves that oil of the Holy Spirit, praying, feasting upon His Word. I am just trying to be obedient to the Lord and His leading. He has also led me to stock up on food and other things. He has created me this way to be a Joseph even before seeing all the things happening. While in prayer, He said that… Read more »

Thankyou Diana, and all, exactly Proverbs 27:12, exactly not in fear but what the Holy spirit inspires each to do. We should think of others and pets too. The Lord would show me a Joseph scenario but also the Lord showed me The book of Ruth in a dream so it could be a distribution issue. God Bless you all and This is still a Psalms 91 moment and prayer as I’ve said every day and He has kept me as the Lord shared with me,and All glory be Gods and thankyou all for I have gleamed from you all.… Read more »

Many years ago I saved this from a blog posting – but I did not note the author. It was written in the masculine but I changed ‘he’ to ‘she’ to personalize it for myself.  Just recently I was reminded of this and pulled it up – it seems to fit here also. ___________________ But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor.  Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for… Read more »

Thank you all for sharing what God is revealing to each of you. It is such an encouragement to see the confirmation of God’s heart and His move in my life as I read it in yours. As I was in prayer asking the Lord to grow me up into greater intimacy with Him, He reminded me that the prerequisite for closeness to Him was holiness in me. Although this was something He’d already revealed, He saw fit to remind me and encourage me not just to continue to pursue sanctity in my life, but to remove out all profanity… Read more »

Let me say softly… It’s very controversial to prepare physically for whatever comes …
The majority won’t..
But the few that are lead… have a voice too.
Divide and conquer in the body is happening.
Just act independent of the acceptable narrative.
Praying for knowledge and God’s will be done, without any fear or worries.
I’m praying WE all never become offended by the Lord… No matter what comes.
Blessings too Christ’s people.

Thank you for a heart of God message. Truth is we are a assortment/mix of God’s children on earth…. different parts, one body. I’ve been lead for many years now, really since my childhood, to be prepared in life. But starting in earnest in 2015 “hardcore” , not with a fear motivation, but a good type of responsibility as my motivation, why ? to help my family and those God brings to me. So it’s done like Noah’s actions…for me. I’ve a place of Goshen for the lord’s work. Now most don’t understand wanting to stay here, in the time’s… Read more »

Thank you for posting this Diana.   So many are talking about stocking up and I was really not hearing that myself from Holy Spirit – thought maybe something was wrong with me.  My thoughts were – Prepare for what?  Will I be in an earthquake?  A tornado? A nuclear disaster? A war?  More plagues? Sheltering in place – for how long?  It is so overwhelming! Lately I was feeling almost obsessed with Scripture – trying to absorb and digest as much of it as possible. I actually asked God if I was crazy to be like this.  The next few days were full of devotionals and postings talking about how… Read more »

Amen! Oh how the Lord is so so good. He has specifically told me to stock up, even though I don’t know how much I keep doing so as I see fit. He’s also confirmed He will perfectly provide a place of refuge for us to be for others and yet it will be EXACT timing- and for that timing I patiently wait in faith. That being said others in my family know what’s coming but fully at peace and do not feel any need to prepare in the physical- it really is astounding! But for all of us it… Read more »

Amen! I struggled with thinking I needed to stock up on food items for a couple of years, but not getting confirmation from the Lord. Then he told me just what you said. He gave me direction for myself, but not to share it. Each has his on path and calling. Some to stock up and share, which God will multiply, and some to not stock up on anything and God will miraculously provide.

But our greatest need is to get filled up on Him!

Thank you Diana!
