Jewels from Judy: Will You Listen for the Answer?
Sitting in the Secret Place, journal and pen in hand, I fight distractions and seek the Lord. His still small voice begins to speak to my heart. It is not just a message for me, but for you too!
“While I do understand the pulls of the world, time must be set aside for prayer offered with thanksgiving and praise. This is when you see what I Am showing you. Ideas will come, answers will manifest themselves, and My peace will guide you. Answers will come more readily, and when you need them, if you wait until I have released you from the secret place. Make time for Me! I will give you My peace and will provide what you need; however, you must tarry with Me.
“My Word instructs you for a purpose. While I do work through others, My remnant must first learn to tarry with Me. The anointing I placed in you through My Holy Spirit will be in agreement with the solution. Be still and know I Am God.
“Continually tell My Church that in order for them to receive answers, they must seek My face and be still and know I Am God. As they do, the shakings of this age will pass through them. I will tell each of you where to go, whether to the right or to the left, and what to do. I will give answers. I will build My temple with those willing to be My fellow-workers. Those whose work remains will receive a reward. That is My promise.
“The kingdom of God is not just words but the power of My Holy Spirit. All other power is counterfeit and seeks its own will. Hide yourself under the shadow of My wing. I Am your Refuge and your Fortress. Make Me your dwelling and you shall not be afraid.”

Jewels from Judy: The Eyes of My Heart
Judy A Bauman
“I ask you to guard your heart for out of it flows the issues of life. You have an enemy, and he is the accuser of the brethren. So, if a voice of condemnation is moving you, know that it is a voice that moves you away from My perfect love for you. Perfect love, that is to say, love that has been perfected in you, will cast out all fear. Allow My perfect love to cast out the fear in you. Beloved, let My love cast out that condemning voice.
“Stand in My holy light and allow Me to shine through the darkness. Let My love for you break down the walls you have built up around yourself. Those walls do not protect you. They keep you from letting Me in your heart. Trust Me. Let Me be your protection. I Am your Shield and Strength. I Am well able to keep you in My care.
“Trust Me, follow Me, invite Me to be with you where you are. I will never forsake you. Look into the eyes of My heart, says the Lord your God, and see that My love for you is complete. My love will see you through every season. Look into the eyes of My heart, beloved.”
In His love,

FOLLOW MY LEAD, NOT MAN'S HYPE!
Judy A Bauman
“When a man repents of a sin and then goes back to justify it, a greater sin lurks at the door. This is especially true for those commissioned into ministry. Sin cannot be justified! Do not look at miracles as proof that a minister is in good standing with Me. Do not confuse My grace and compassion on My sheep with man’s anointing.
“Take heed to what is written in Matthew 7:21-23 ‘Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”
“Repentance must be sure and complete. Going back to justify the means for an end will only beget greater sin. This doorway will be the downfall of a man if it is not quickly shut and sealed with the Blood of Jesus – My Blood. Sin justified in the pulpit will be greatly judged. Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
“When I move upon My ministers to groom and feed and care for the Body, I do not have them each act the same way. I made you different for a reason, as is proved by your unique fingerprints, yet My Church ever seeks to ‘fit in.’
Unfortunately, more of My leaders are learning from each other than they are from My leading – as are the people learning how to react to My touch from others. They learn the motions of man and they fail to learn from Me, their Standard. You cannot look to man to teach you how My glory will move. That is looking to the past to see the present.
“If you must look to the past, read the Gospels. I Am the same yesterday, today, and forever. My ways are not man’s ways, My ‘methods’ were never the same. I did that on purpose so that you would see that you are not to get stuck in some methodology. Mimicking the motions of man is nothing short of idolatry, as is running after the anointing. Idolizing what a man does when performing great and mighty things does NOT glorify Me! Many times, what you see as a great miracle is nothing short of divination. Did I not warn of the deception to come? If you indeed see a great miracle, then who should be given glory, honor and praise – My ministers or Me? Who are you going to chase after?
“If you follow anyone else’s lead but Mine, you are following a copy. You are following a miniature model of Me – NOT ME! It would be like seeing a model airplane and expecting you can get inside and fly somewhere. Can you get in a model car and go for a drive? I think not!
“Learn, My Children, learn that you cannot operate in My glory outside of Me. You cannot conjure up My Spirit by emotionally charging the people. You will see My glory on those I touch. They are often the ones no man lays hands upon because their faith has reached heaven and their prayers have come up as a sweet aromatic sacrifice. It is My touch, not man’s that changes them. They come from that place transformed by My glory. It may not be immediate, but it will be lasting.
“Do you want to see people healed and whole? Then bring them into My presence in sweet and sincere worship. Enter My courts with thanksgiving and praise; then come into My presence in worship. I seek those who worship in spirit and in truth. As you minister to Me, allow My Holy Spirit to minister to the people.
“I did nothing unless the Father showed Me. I said nothing unless the Father spoke it. Do likewise and not one will walk away unfulfilled. As they step into that realm of glory, everything that is not of Me will be burned up. This is where cancers fall off, ears open, eyes see, hearts are turned from stone to flesh – the dead now live! You will not have to work in My holy presence to see people healed as their faith in Me – not man – is what brings lasting healing.
“Beloved, you do not have to lose your voice screaming and yelling and stomping around. I did not do that, so neither should you. I was stern with demons, but I never had to scream at them to come out. That is flesh trying to accomplish something begun in the Spirit. Paul warned you in Galatians 3:3 the foolishness of this thinking. I never shoved people to the ground to demonstrate My strength in the Spirit, nor did I push people over and call it the anointing. These are My beloved sheep being pushed around, so I advise and charge you to treat them as I would. The fruits of the Spirit are evident.
“David was a man after My own heart, but when he mishandled My glory his ignorance cost Uzza his life. Uzza was guilty of presumption in his attempt to steady what I was shaking – a difficult but necessary lesson for My people.
“Do not stabilize what I Am shaking!
“David was guilty of going ahead with his plan without including My instruction. He had good intentions, but they were outside of My leading. David had to come to Me in great reverence and humility to learn how to carry My glory. So, if you see someone irreverently handling My glory, pray for them to gain wisdom. They have gone ahead of My leading. Do not condemn them, pray for these as some are My David’s – those also after My own heart. Be merciful as I Am merciful.
“Please, stop looking to man, Church; look only to your heavenly Father. My sheep struggle to understand who I Am because of the abuses of their earthy fathers, teachers, and mentors. Shoving them around only contributes to a false image of who I Am. I thoroughly taught and portrayed this love and I expect you to follow My lead – not man’s hype."
In My Father’s love,

Arise! Release a Roar of Triumph and Victory! "From Sheep to Lions" by Dutch Sheets and Greg Hood
In a recent dream sent to me by my friend, Greg Hood, he and I were at a lake shaped like America, about to go fishing. An angel appeared and told us we could not fish just yet. He told us to travel to a certain place and partner on an important assignment with 2 leaders: a charismatic Baptist pastor and a Word of Faith teacher/prophet. (Greg is a prophet/apostle.) (Photo of Greg Hood)
In the dream, we traveled on Radah Airlines, out of Gate 12. When we arrived, one of the waiting leaders said to me, "This is serious. We have to hurry." We walked onto a field containing thousands of creatures that were lying down. They were unusual beings with bodies of sheep and the heads of lions! He informed us that they were a rare breed of sheep that were bred so that at a certain age, they would metamorphose into lions.
He said to me, "They have been stuck in this form since November 2020. They should be lions by now. They are dying. We are going to lose them all if we can't get them through this process. What do we do?"
I said, "We have to get them on their feet. Lions must be on their feet." Then I decreed, "LIONS, TO YOUR FEET!" Immediately angels appeared, assisting the sheep/lions to their feet. Once they stood I decreed, "WIND OF GOD, BLOW UPON THESE LIONS AND BRING THEM INTO THE POWER OF THEIR TRUE IDENTITY!"
As soon as I decreed this, a wind began to blow, blowing the wool of the sheep in a way that we could see underneath it. As this happened, we could see thousands of ticks attached to each sheep; these ticks were hindering them from morphing into lions.
One of the leaders said, "I have what we need." He pulled out from his bag a horn filled with oil and gave it to a different leader, who brought it to his lips and began to blow the oil from the horn. The wind caught the oil and blew it over the entire pride, covering all the lions/sheep. This wind-blown oil killed and removed all the ticks.
As this happened, the sheep bodies began to morph into the bodies of lions. It was rather quick. During this time, another leader was singing 2 Samuel 22:30-35 over them. As he did, a deafening roar arose from the lions that literally shook the ground.
Many of the lionesses were pregnant and immediately began giving birth; and they gave birth to sheep! The sheep, however, quickly began turning into lions! The young lions began to roar, also, and the other leader kept singing the 2 Samuel 22 Scripture.
All of this continued for a while. Then the lions began making their way to the tarmac where many planes were waiting. They boarded the planes and were immediately flown throughout the nation.
As planes were departing, one of the leaders said to me, "I am so thankful you were not late. We are called to release lions, not raise sheep!"
At this point in the dream, the angel walked up to me and handed me papers. They were the flight manifest. The angel said, "Seal this manifest with your ring. This will activate mission 'RELEASE THE ROAR' over America. This is part of Father's promise of REDEEMING ALL." I did as requested and we watched as the planes filled the sky, taking these lions throughout the nation.
End of dream.
There is more to the dream, but here are a few thoughts regarding this portion:
The American-shaped lake in which we were about to fish refers to the coming harvest of souls in America. The sheep/lions obviously represent the Church, which was adversely affected in the 2020 elections ("since November, 2020"). The maturing of many Believers into the kingly anointing of Christ (the Lion of Judah) stopped at that point, through the ensuing disappointment and hope deferred.
The "ticks," I believe, are a play on words - poli-tics/ticks. The election process, influenced by the corruption, drained the life from many Believers, causing them to disengage and give up ("lie down"). This is stunting their growth and development. If this isn't checked, it will affect them permanently.
Greg and I traveled on Radah Airlines. Radah is the Hebrew word for "rule" or "dominion." We left from Gate 12, which is a number representing government in Scripture. God was saying that we had the necessary dominion/authority to rule over the situation He was sending us to, releasing Christ's governmental authority. He has all authority on Earth (Matthew 28:18) and has delegated it to us, the Ekklesia (Church). We traveled by air, which also pictured authority in "heavenly places/heavens" (see Matthew 16:19).
The sheep/lions had to "stand" to be healed; they needed to rise up and make a stand (Ephesians 6:13-14). I was led to decree over them, "Lions (notice I called them lions, not sheep), to your feet!" Angels helped them to do so. Then I decreed, "Wind of God (Holy Spirit), blow upon these lions and bring them into the power of their true identity!" And I say this now over YOU. Arise! Release a roar from your spirit – a roar of triumph and victory!
The oil and wind obviously represent Holy Spirit. He must blow on these individuals, delivering and healing them from the blood-sucking, political fiasco that occurred. This will be facilitated by different streams of the Body of Christ working together, and by the different Ephesians 4 gifts of Christ – apostle, prophet, pastor and teacher – working together. The evangelism gift was released AFTER the healing.
We must pray and decree into this attack and reversing of development and momentum. We will do so all week here on Give Him 15. Please join me and thousands of others as we do so.
Pray with Me:
Father, we refuse to allow hope-deferred and discouragement to cripple the growth of Your people into their true identity – the army You intend them to be. Yes, we are Your people, the sheep of Your pasture; but we are also to grow into a mighty Ekklesia, moving in the authority of Lion-King Jesus, releasing His roar. You said You would roar out of Zion! (see Joel 3:16)
We decree over the Body of Christ, as You instructed in the dream, "LIONS, ON YOUR FEET! Rise up from confusion. Shake off discouragement. Trade your weariness for the strength He promised in Isaiah 40:31." And Holy Spirit, we ask You to now blow upon Your people, delivering them from this draining of life and strength. Pour Your oil on them, killing and removing these hope-sucking/life-sucking ticks.
Father, bring the Body of Christ together to release what is needed to accomplish this, especially leaders. Then, we ask You to birth the harvest. Bring forth the evangelists...bold, faith-filled, Spirit-empowered evangelists that will cover this entire nation. And do this in other nations as well. We ask for all of this in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
We decree that all effects of the 2020 election on the Church are now broken – in the powerful name of Jesus. The Ekklesia will emerge as the triumphant army Christ intends them to be!

Come Away From the Ledge of Despair!
The Lord spoke this to me as I stood between the Eastern Gate of Jerusalem and The Mount of Olives. I was looking at the Kidron Valley in between trying to imagine what it would look like when Jesus returns. Though this word was first shared on April 27, 2011, it seems timely to reshare.

THE BIRTHING OF THE NEW ERA
Judy A Bauman
“The birthing process of this era may appear to be breech, but there is a divine turnaround coming. It is in process! I speak to Christians, those who are called by My name. I am calling you to come deeper into My embrace. You will not run to-and-fro looking for whom you will follow. "When you follow Me, I will show you where to go and who has My heart.
“Do not look to the right or left but seek My face and I will be found by you. The era being birthed is one that I have breathed into, and it was spoken into existence by My mouth. This is why the thief has come at this hour to steal the breath and to cover the mouths of My people. I have used what he meant for your harm to reset My church, My ekklesia. The dividing line between good and evil is now clearer for anyone seeking to find Me as they seek in spirit and in truth.
“You will easily be able to see those who are foolish because they refuse to use their resources to prepare as I tarry. You will hear the goats and separate them from the sheep. They do not belong. The goat's butt up against the sheep and can cause great harm when left on their own. The harvest is ripe, remove the tares. They are easy to spot, for when the wheat is ripe it bows low, but the tares remain upright. This represents prideful, arrogant men and women who refuse to hear the Holy Spirit's conviction and repent. They are as the Pharisees of old who had the Son of God standing before them, the One the scriptures speak of, yet failed to recognize Him. Money, power, and fame are their gods. They only mention My name to get what they want.
“The wolves in sheep’s clothing will be revealed for what they are! Ask Me for spiritual discernment and I will show you. There will always be the confirmation of two or three witnesses, so be wise for the days are evil. The enemy seeks to knock you off balance, so walk circumspectly. Prepare your heart now because the revealing will reverberate through the church just as a major earthquake is felt with severe aftershocks. Decide now who you are following, and if it's man and not Jesus, confess it is sin because I will have no other gods before Me.
“Do not fear! The birthing process of this era may appear to be breech, but as I have said, there is a divine turnaround coming. Christ is the head of the church, and I will not allow a breech, a stillborn, a miscarriage, or an abortion to rule this epoch of time. The enemy has been allowed a short season to think he has the upper hand, but I will always have the last word!
“I Am slow in My coming because I am allowing time for repentance; however, in the fullness of time, what I am birthing will come forth with power. It will not be stopped by any demonic power working in the spiritual realm or through man in the natural realm.
“You have been hidden as I prepare for the great revealing of the sons of God. Continue to prepare! Work the work I've given you. If you will be faithful with the little I have given you, I will give you much as the turnaround is made manifest.”

AWAKEN TO ME!
This is what I heard the Lord say to share with His ekklesia:
“Awaken to Me, My beautiful one. Awaken to from your slumber. Shake off the weariness and the discouragement because the time you've been waiting for is near. As I told my prophet Habakkuk, ‘For the vision is yet for the appointed time; it hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it, for it will certainly come, it will not delay.’”
“There is an APPOINTED time, My love, and if what I Am doing in you is birthed too soon, it will not accomplish all I have for you to accomplish in your time – your days on earth. I have much more written in your book, so do not believe the lies the enemy has been feeding you. See what has come between us and abhor it. When a word or thought comes that is contrary to the way I speak to you, reject it vehemently!
“In John 10:10, there's a clear distinction between what the thief does and what I do. That one verse divides hell from heaven, wickedness from goodness, hatred from love, and I want people – all people to know it! You know there is a great divide between good and evil, but many think that evil in the world is my doing. It is not. Evil comes when sin goes unrepented. It opens a door to the enemy of your soul and he is an opportunist.
“Beloved, I am slow, s-l-o-w, in My coming because I'm giving many the opportunity to repent, so be patient in My timing. I haven't forgotten you. I'm not upset with you. I'm not wringing My hands, as I knew your end before your beginning. I know My plans for you. Do not allow yourself to isolate, as that creates much internal turmoil. You were created for such a time as this, and My timing for your life is perfect. Walk with Me and watch what I do and speak what you hear Me say. If there's no life in the words you hear, that is the Infiltrator, the serpent of old, who comes to kill steal and destroy.
“My dear one, I come to give you life and that in abundance. I speak to your soul because your spirit understands these words of wisdom. I speak to you and say, ‘awakened to Me.’”
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Psalm 139:16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.
John 5:19 Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. 12:49 For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak.
2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

WALK WITH ME: An Exhortation from the Holy Spirit
“Do not allow anything, and I mean real or perceived, to hinder your walk with Me. I am not condemning you. I am cheering you forward in the calling to which I have called you. There is no condemnation in Christ for those being led by My Spirit. You are led, but there are times you let go of My hand, and like Peter, you begin to sink.
“Beloved, there are things going on in and around you that are not of Me. Seek My face! I won’t hide from you. You will find Me, and I will lift you and you will find your feet on solid ground.”

What are you hearing today from God's Word? By Barbara Sependa
God’s Word is sharper than any two edged sword, and it is His Word that is able to cut through to divide soul and spirit, joint and marrow. It is the Holy Spirit that brings us the revelation of God’s word and teaches us all things. Jesus promised that He would ask the Father to send the Holy Spirit and that He would lead us into all truth. Jesus knew that without the Holy Spirit we would be as lost sheep without a shepherd.
Jesus also knew that we would need the Holy Spirit, as we would not be able to understand things of the spirit without Him. Man would be left to the souls interpretation of things that can only be understood by the spirit.
To discern the word of God is to discern the truth about Jesus the Mighty Son of God.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword. It penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow It judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
Hosea 14:9 Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; whoever is discerning, let him know them. For the ways of the Lord are right, and the righteous will walk in them, but transgressors will stumble in them.

Jewels from Judy: WILL YOU DRINK OF THE NEW WINE?
Judy A Bauman
As I sought the Lord, I heard, “I love to hear you come in worship, but I want you to know you are not required to ‘perform’ for Me. Do you understand? My love for you is not based on your performance. Your works do not save you, but your works done out of obedience to Me gives honor and glory for My kingdom’s good.
“I am making a new wine, and I want you to drink of it. This will not be something at all in conflict with My word, but it will be in conflict with what My church has been doing. Many are excited that I am doing a new thing, but unless they press into Me and hear My Spirit, they will actually reject what I am doing. I appreciate when My beloved ones are deliberate and intentional to lean into Me and hear what I have to say.”

Jewels from Judy: Arise and Fulfill Your Destiny
“The church’s voice has come into agreement with the schemes of her enemy by speaking his lies over America rather than My truth. The hopelessness of My people comes from the lack of faith in Me and the price I was willing to pay for them to be in communion with Me.
“If My people would sit and be still, (the words most hate to hear because the world’s busyness demands their attention) then they would hear from heaven and I would, as promised, heal their land. It is ‘My people who are called by My name’ that need to humble themselves, seek My face, turn from their wicked ways, then I will fulfill what is written. I urge you to urge others to seek My face and hear My plans, not man’s. You are in the world, but not of it.
“Arise, My children! Arise in the love and well-being of your Father. Arise in My peace. Arise in My goodness and the bold meekness of My strength. Arise and fulfill your destiny in this day and hour.”
Your loving Abba

Jewels from Judy: Honoring Queen Esther Purim 2021
Judy A Bauman
In 2006, when the Lord gave me this word as a simple way to share Esther’s story, there was a specific political issue occurring that He addressed. That has been omitted from this post.
This is what He said:
“Go to this book, beloved. Esther was a type and a shadow for you to follow. You are My lovely chosen and beloved ones. You are the one who can turn My head with your beauty and your grace. Come and ask of Me now. Purify yourselves and come into My chambers. I will make known to you how to pray. The Book of Esther is a love story that I gave you for instruction!
“Haman thought he was so great that all should bow down to him. When My servant Mordecai refused to bow before him, it made him furious. Haman learned Mordecai was Jewish. He sought to kill all Jews because of his hatred for Mordecai. He wanted to purge the world of My people because one man refused to bow to him. So he went to the king of Persia, King Ahasuerus, and received the king's permission to write letters to the entire empire stating the Jewish people were to be utterly annihilated. His empire had 127 provinces and stretched from India to Ethiopia.
“When Mordecai learned of the plot to destroy the Jews, he tore his clothes and cried out in sackcloth and ashes. He got word to Esther that even in the palace she would not be able to escape this evil. Then he relayed the famous words, ‘Who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this.’ The Jews all fasted and prayed for Esther to be accepted into the king's inner court so that he would intervene on their behalf. After the third day, Esther put on her royal robes and in her beautiful and gracious way came to present herself to the king. The king's response to her was one of delight.
“Hear MY CHURCH! The king was delighted in her! He loved her and was so taken by her beauty he not only offered her his golden scepter but also up to half his kingdom!
“Esther, in My wisdom, did not yet speak what was in her troubled heart. She only asked the king and Haman to a banquet that she had prepared. As they enjoyed themselves, the king inquired of her petition. Her only request was for him and Haman to return the second night and she would set another banquet before them. Haman had no clue what was awaiting him.
“He left that feast on top of the world, but when he saw Mordecai, who refused to bow, Haman's blood boiled within him. He was so filled with hatred that he commissioned gallows 75 feet high to be built, on which Mordecai was to be hanged on the following day.
“However, the king's heart was stirred that very night and he could not sleep. He asked for the book of records to be read and was reminded of Mordecai's loyalty to inform the king of a plot against his life. The king realized his oversight and sought to honor Mordecai and brought Haman in the next day to inquire ‘what tribute should be paid to a loyal man who pleased the king?’
“Haman smugly thought the king was speaking of him. He counseled King Ahasuerus that in every manner this man should be honored! He suggested a royal robe, a royal horse, and a royal crown, all of which had been used by the king to be placed on the man. He added that one of the king's noblemen should escort him through the streets and shout before him saying, ‘This is what is done for the man the king delights to honor!’ All this Haman suggested fully expecting he was to be the recipient; however, he soon learned his enemy, Mordecai, was to receive that honor! The king announced that Haman was not only the one to carry out ALL he had recommended, but he was the one who would herald Mordecai the Jew throughout the city square!
“Haman obeyed and did as the king commanded, but afterward, he hung his head in utter humiliation and rushed to return home to hide his shame. Just that quickly he was summoned for the second dinner with Queen Esther where the king asked for her petition. She beseeched King Ahasuerus to spare her people from utter slaughter and annihilation. When he demanded to know who was so reprehensible to do such a thing, the Queen told him it was Haman.
“The king left the room in anger and when he returned, he found Haman falling on the couch where his beloved queen sat. When the king saw him, he was enraged and ordered Haman to be hung immediately on the very gallows he had built for Mordecai! His 10 sons later followed him to that end.
8:2 So the king took off his signet ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it to Mordecai; and Esther appointed Mordecai over the house of Haman.
8:8 You yourselves write a decree concerning the Jews, as you please, in the king's name, and seal it with the king's signet ring; for whatever is written in the king's name and sealed with the king's signet ring no one can revoke.
“Make haste. Pray for the triumph of Esther and Mordecai to sweep through the Middle East and to the end of the world. Write and declare My word. Pray for the peace of My city, Jerusalem! Write it and seal it with the signet ring, the authority I give you through Christ Jesus. My third day has come, and you may come boldly to My inner court to the Throne of Grace! The golden scepter is extended. You say to Me, ‘Lord, Come quickly!’ But I say to you, ‘Esther, My Bride, My Church, My Beloved, COME QUICKLY!’"
