I hear a sound coming from the depths of the souls of a company of people! They are beautifully adorned with the glory of the Father! They are His daughters—His radiant ones! They were born to blow the trumpet and birth a movement! Daughters, you were born for such a time as this! You were created to birth the living! You were made to birth a revolution that proclaims the identity of the church that has been overlooked and misunderstood; this identity is living eternally as the bride of Christ!
“…that He might present the Church to Himself a glorious bride, without spot or wrinkle or any other defect, but to be holy and unblemished” (Eph. 5:27 ESV).
You were made to manifest passionate intimacy that demands a response from heaven! He says to you that you are the beloved apple of His eye! You were born for this! The world has offered you the dainties of authority and leadership, and often the church system has attempted to keep you enslaved because of being female! But God chose to appear to a young woman named Mary to birth and rear the Savior of the World! You can lead governmental positions; be doctors, lawyers, teachers, and even presidential leaders, but in the church system you have been given much responsibility, often with no authority! This was never the plan of your Papa! He created His daughters to bear His image and to walk in His authority! You were created with a womb, spiritually and physically speaking, you were created to birth and powerfully nurture young and old, both men and women into their world-changing, God-given nature! You are both spiritually and naturally wired to be feelers and discerners, intercessors, and bearers of the beauty and glory of the Lord! You carry the revelation of passionate intimacy, and were created to shine the beauty of His heart to all the nations of the earth!
In 2015, I had an encounter with the Lord. In this encounter, He spoke these words to me, “In the same way that out of the womb of a woman was born the bridegroom Jesus, so will it be with the birth of His bride in these last days!” This encounter revealed the Father’s desire to overshadow His daughters to conceive of the dream of His to birth the bridal revelation in the last days! This revelation is His plan to bring about the greater glory and the latter rain! It is a revelation that goes well beyond the business of doing ministry, but dives deeply into the beauty of being His ministry in the earth! It is the revelation of the lovesick longing for His heart-to-heart connection to be fulfilled as promised!
His daughters carry the heavy revelation of the bridal identity! His bride is His passion, and the pure fire of jealousy that rages in His eyes is she! His bride is both male and female, just as His sons are! His bride is His church that the gates of Hell will not prevail against! The lovesick warriors who chose to be one with Him and desire to see Him will be made manifest on the earth as it is in heaven! His vision and His will—not just a man-made dream of building the “business of ministry”, but the God-conceived dream to birth and build heaven on earth!
Just as Esther risked her life by boldly opening her mouth and going to see the king unannounced; just as she risked her life to save her nation and generation, so now the Father is releasing His daughters into a season of declaring His name in the places where they have been hidden and ignored! Danny Silk of Bethel Church in Redding, California said it this way, “Women have received much responsibility in the church, but they’ve been given no authority.” This statement speaks of the heavy weight that has been placed on women to carry the baby, so-to-speak, but to not have the right to parent the very thing they have birthed! They have been forced to either abort what they have been carrying, or give it up to a male-only, single-parenting church system. This has produced a loveless and legalistic system that only allows for correction and legalism without nurture, care, and intimacy. When one takes on responsibility but has no authority, this equates to abuse and slavery!
“For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Gal. 3:27,28).
Paul writes these words to awaken the reader to the knowledge of being united in Christ and with one another! In that level of unity, they are one; the same way the Father is one with the Son and the Spirit. Mary had Joseph, Eve had Adam, and Christ has His bride. He choses to rule and reign with her! Giving her permission to speak, prophesy, rule, reign, and be His trumpet, both now and for all of eternity! The Esthers, Marys, Phoebes, and Deborahs of this hour, rising out of a long season of silence, are consumed with fasting and prayer, and even being healed from the barrenness imposed upon them by this legalistic, pharisaical system.
They are bringing forth a message that will bring freedom, passion and intimacy back into the church at large! They will invite the beloved church into a deeper intimacy that she has never experienced! You have heard it said, “Women, you shall be silent in the churches…just as the Law also says” (1 Cor. 14:34), but your Father has put a trumpet to your mouth! The man-made law that the Pharisees were teaching the Corinthians was abolished by the Beloved!
The scripture previously mentioned has been taken out of historical and scriptural context far too long, and has been used to enslave women to silence. Similarly in times past, scriptures were twisted to promote slavery, abortion, and other things that are abominable to the Lord! Paul’s letters are addressing the questions asked by the Corinthian church, as they were dealing with coming out of paganism and the imposed religious teachings of the Jews. Just before he contextually responds to their question, which they likely wrote to him in a letter, he wrote this in 1 Corinthians 14,
“For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all may be exhorted; and the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets; for God is not a God of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.”
In a sense, he is saying, “You asked about whether or not women should be silent. That’s a crazy question! Why are you referring again to the law? Was it from you that the word of God first went forth, or has it come to you only? I just said, ‘all may prophesy!’ Just do it in decency and in order, so that there is no confusion” (1 Cor. 14:36, author’s paraphrase). The context of this section of scripture is in reaction to instruction of the newly converted Corinthian church and the amazing manifestation of the spiritual gifts. He is encouraging all to prophesy and to speak in tongues, and not to silence anyone, but to do it in an orderly fashion. He is telling them to stop reverting back to man-made tradition and law, reminding them of their freedom in Christ to be one!
“Therefore, my brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak in tongues. But all things must be done properly and in an orderly manner” (1 Cor. 14:39-40).
The Lord is saying that He has given His daughters permission to speak! The enemy has attempted to silence your voices, but He is saying, “No More!” He has put a trumpet to their mouths and a longing in their hearts to manifest the beauty of the Bridal revelation in the earth! Now is the time and this is the hour! A pure women’s movement is arising! Let us rise up! Let the message of the wondrous beauty of the Bride and Bridegroom come forth, and may our nation and generation be saved!
