Church, Return!

Return my people, return to the Lord your God. Let every man consider His ways and return to the Lord your God. The appointed time has come to raise up My Tabernacle, the fallen hut of David. It is the time of restoration for My church. Let My temple come forth, let the work begin, a temple of My presence, a temple of My holiness. Let My people seek My face and build the sanctuary of the Lord, a temple made without hands.

Consecrate yourselves and make ready. Blow the shofar in Zion, sound an alarm on My holy mountain. Gather the people, sanctify a fast, and call on the name of the Lord. Let the priests and the intercessors come forth and lead My people in weeping and fasting and mourning. Return to the Lord your God.

I have kept you. I have protected you from the storm. And yet you have still rejected Me and gone your own way. You have built your own houses and your own kingdoms while My house has lain in ruins. If you do not return to Me in humility and brokenness I will withdraw My presence and power and give you up to your ways. The day of the Lord is at hand, a day of gloom and darkness. Only they who call on My name in sincerity and truth will find My place of refuge. Even as Ishmael is now seeking to destroy Isaac to rule from My seat of power in the center of the earth in Jerusalem, so is Satan seeking to destroy my church to rule from My seat of power in the center of your hearts. But My people shall possess the gate of their enemies if they will submit wholly to Me, and they will overcome the gates of Hell as My Spirit leads them in triumph. I will have a church of glory, a people after My own heart.

Return to the Lord your God. It is the dawning of a new day. Now it is springing forth in the power of My Spirit. Let the blind eyes be opened and the deaf ears be unstopped. Hear the voice of the Lord. Come forth out of your darkness and lay aside your sinful ways. Be released from the bondage of sin and flesh and come forth in newness of life. I am releasing My delivering power to set the captives free. I am raising up My tabernacle in the liberty of the children of God, the trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to raise up this desolate generation.

Let My people arise from their filth. Repent of your ways and humble yourselves in My sight that I may heal your land. Come forth, My people, in prayer and supplication and see if I will turn away My wrath. Let My church arise in holiness and I will restore My presence and reveal My glory and the multitudes will be restored, a mighty host. In the midst of darkness you will see My glory, in the midst of darkness a great light will come forth. Return to Me, My people. Return to the Lord your God.
