12-5-16 @ waking: Message delivered by Michael (the angel, I assume): “Time to trim your wicks and get your lamps ready.”

Posted: December 6, 2016 in Behavior that shows holiness and consecration to Jesus, Revelations and Prophecy, rivers of living water: salvation

I’m thinking adding Matthew 25: 1-13 to our daily devotional readings and collective memories would also be a good idea since I woke this morning to the phrase, “Time to trim your wicks and get your lamps ready.” Message delivered by Michael. I was struck by what an old-fashioned term “trim your wicks” was and instantly knew this referred to the wise and foolish women waiting for their bridegroom (Jesus). We do indeed need to stop arguing over small points of doctrine (like the logs in our eyes which need to be removed) and draw close to our Lord for all time and pray that we are worthy with clean hands and a pure heart of love for those around us — both the lovely and unlovable. Supernatural Oil is added to our lamps only by God’s grace and how we are spending our time and devotion while waiting for our bridegroom, Jesus Christ.

Only half the people waiting for Jesus were ready (5 of 10) with fresh oil in their lamps. Your burning unction daily should be to drop all distractions calling you away from your first love, Jesus Christ. One day soon we’ll see his face…no more pain and suffering..love will have won…but only if you are ready. Measure everything on your daily “to-do” list with this phrase burning through your hearts and minds “Time to trim your wicks and get your lamps ready.”

In 2016, Hanukkah begins at sundown on Christmas Eve. This is a conjunction of the miracle celebration of consecrated oil being found for temple ceremonies with the Christian holiday of Christmas — the day God became the light of the world in flesh as Jesus Christ…They had to trim their wicks and get their lamps ready!! Coincidence? We’ll see at this month unfolds.

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams,”   Act 2:17.

“Then He said, “Hear now My words: If there is a prophet among you, I, the LORD, make Myself known to him in vision, and I speak to him in a dreams,”   Numbers 12:6.

“Thus speaks the Lord God of Israel saying, “Write in a book for yourself all the words that I have spoken to you,”   Jeremiah 30:2.
