Clare said, “Lord, I pray that you will bless us with courage and honesty beyond the normal amount, and that your Grace would truly be with this message, and your peace and your love would just cover everyone in this message. Amen.”
Jesus began to speak to Clare, “Many are so sure they are ready to stand before Me, but they’re not taking a good look inside themselves or in My mirror. This concerns me, Clare. It concerns Me that they are so ready, and yet they still quarrel and bite at one another. They still gossip and tell lies about one another. They still accuse with impunity, thinking they are so right, and the other is so wrong. Yes, I tell you, they are not ready to stand before Me. They are blinded by self-righteousness. They are on a crusade to set the world straight, but they are unfit for the Bridal gown. I cannot put a clean, white garment on those who are still jealous and destructive with their tongue. I cannot put that gown on anyone who does not love their brother as they love Me.”
“I count your will. If you wilfully put down your dislike, hatred, resentment, jealousy, or distaste for others, I will help you and fill in the rest. It’s all in the will. If you wilfully engage in jealousy, gossip, hatred, pride, and self-righteousness, you’re in serious trouble. All I am asking of you – so you will fit into your pristine bridal gown – is an honest self-appraisal. If you’re holding scorn and contempt for anyone voluntarily, wilfully… you will not stand before Me on that day.”
And at this point, the Lord quickened a Scripture to Clare, “Watch, therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man” Luke 21:36
He continued, “If I love you, and you are not committed to loving others, you are not worthy to escape what is to take place on the Earth. Love will be the acid test, not doctrine, for that shall pass away; not prophecy, for that, too, is fleeting. You may be a prophet, full of the Word of the Lord, but if you have not love, you will not stand.”
Clare replied, “Oh Lord, that seems so hard. It really seems hard to me, even though I know that lack of love is so destructive. It still seems hard.” It wasn’t easy, but she listened and wrote what He said:
“I did not say you must be perfect in thought, word, and deed, for none is perfect. But, your intention to be perfect, to love perfectly, to be kind, merciful, and entertain absolutely no malice toward others…if you have made this resolution, you will stand. But, if you are standing in self-righteousness, pointing the finger, quarrelling, judging, standing in My place, giving out judgments, then you are doomed to remain in the Tribulation. Why do you think I’ve given you all these meditations, Clare?” She replied, “To prepare us?”
“That’s exactly right. I want to leave no one behind, but some of you have hardened your hearts toward each other and have trampled the innocent and the blind. Many of you on the Internet have taken shots at one another. You’ve wounded, crippled, and left them to die, isolated, despised, and without the fruits of their labor. Unless you repent and are found to be a blameless one, you might as well start making plans to stay here. You will not be taken. Love is My standard: patience, long-suffering, kindness, mercy, meekness, the Beatitudes. This is the description of My Bride. If you are wilfully countering the Beatitudes, you still don’t have My heart. You still don’t resemble Me. My Bride must resemble Me.
“Some of you will say, ‘This is too harsh!’ But, I say to you that you have not repented of these sins. You are harbouring hatred. Am I to marry a Bride steeped in rancour, jealousy, and hatred? If you truly repent of these sins, you will be taken. Shall I wait until after the Rapture for them to find out that they were not worthy to stand before Me? Why do you think that I chastise you so severely when I see one of these attitudes in you? Do you realise the seriousness of this behaviour? Shall I reward a soul with an incorruptible body and a place in Heaven? A soul who hates his brother and sister, the very one I suffered and died for? I don’t care what others have done to you. If you are My Bride, I have given you the grace to forgive and make an act of will to love that person, for My sake. I have given this grace to every single one. If you don’t exercise it, what am I to think? ‘She’s My wife, but she hates that soul I died for?’ Is that an equal yoke? You see, I can overlook your weaknesses, but I cannot overlook your wilfulness. There are those among you who are, perhaps, very weak, or lacking in mature understanding to do as I say. For them, there is mercy. But for you, who call yourselves My disciples and teachers and prophets – you must walk in My ways.
“Is it not written, ‘not everyone who says to Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven; but he who does the will of My Father, who is in Heaven, will enter?’ Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name? And in Your name cast out demons? And in Your name perform many miracles?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you. Depart from Me.’ “
And the Lord quickened another Scripture to me right after that: “If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing” 1 Corinthians 13: 2
He continued, “Come now, though your sins be red as scarlet, I shall make them white as snow” Isaiah 1:18. I’m standing here before you, waiting for you to repent; to turn from your evil ways and embrace what is right. I have not come before you to chastise and leave you bleeding. I have come to bind up your wounds and grant you greater and greater graces for the building-up of My Kingdom. Seek Me in the still and quiet morning hours, when I may move upon your hearts and expose those things not pleasing to Me. I have compassion and pity for you. I will embrace and restore you and surely take you to Myself on that soon approaching day. I love you, and those whom I love, I reprove. Nothing would be sadder to Me than to remove the blinkers after the Rapture. That is why I have brought this before you.
“Please, take me seriously. Go back. Look more closely into those hidden and dark places in your hearts. Allow Me to pour My healing balm over those infections, that you may be presented to Me, whole and entire, lacking nothing. My Brides, I love you tenderly. Do not pull away.”
