The Set Time
"You will arise and have mercy and loving-kindness for Zion, for it is time to have pity and compassion for her; yes, the set time has come [the moment designated]. For your servants take [melancholy] pleasure in the stones [of her ruins] and show pity for her dust. So the nations shall fear and worshipfully revere the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth Your glory. When the Lord builds up Zion, He will appear in His glory; He will regard the plea of the destitute and will not despise their prayer" (Psalm 102:13-17, Amplified).
Prepare the way of the Lord. Return to the Lord your God in humility of heart. The time of compassion has come, even the set time for the restoration of My church. I am even now arising with mercy and loving-kindness for My church. As you turn to me with all of your hearts I will not be to you as in former days when you provoked me to wrath with your ways. But I have purposed in these days to do you good and to bring forth My divine work. I am restoring My temple, even the Tabernacle of David, the fallen hut. I will repair its breaches and remove its reproach. I will have a holy habitation for the revelation of My glory upon this earth. I will be exalted among the nations and they shall fear My name. I will be exalted in the earth and all men shall know that I am the Lord God Almighty and there is no other.
I have called you for such a time as this. I have heard the cries of My servants who have wept over the fallen ruins of My church. And I will give ear to your prayers, I will regard the pleas of those broken in heart over the condition of My temple. Prepare the way for the return of My people. Cast up a highway. Take up the stumbling stones of iniquity and set up a standard for My people. Lift up your voice like a trumpet and call My people back to the Lord God, even to their first love. Turn unto Me with all of your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning until every hindrance is removed and communion is restored. For I am a gracious God, merciful and full of compassion, and I will have mercy once again upon My people to bless them and to restore them to Myself.
I have yearned for My people. I have longed to gather you to Myself. I have called you. I have brought you forth. I have sent My word and My Spirit unto you. But you have chosen your own way. You have not recognized and honored the day of your visitation. So I have withheld My presence and kept My glory to Myself. I have reserved My weeks of harvest for the fullness of time. But now I will have pity upon My people and reveal My mercy once again. Return to the Lord your God that you might glorify Me in the day of your visitation. I will dwell once again among My people and tabernacle in the midst of My church. I will take away her reproach and restore her glorious heritage in the midst of the nations.
Set your hearts and your minds to seek My face. I am doing a new work in this hour, a work of My Spirit. Do not look to the former things or consider the things of old. For this is a new thing that you have not known or seen before. I am taking you a way you have not gone before. I am building My church, even a holy sanctuary for the ark of My presence and My holy articles. I am building a temple without the hands of men but by My Spirit. Open your hearts to Me and I will lead you in the way I have made. I am bringing forth My people in newness of life, even in My resurrection life and power that I might appear in My glory.
Make ready for this day of My coming. Set the trumpet to your lips and sound an alarm in My holy hill. Call My people apart. Set a fast and call a solemn assembly. Gather My people and sanctify the congregation. Let none be exempt. Take with you words and return to the Lord your God. Let My servants weep before Me and pray for My mercy and I will regard your prayers that My church would be raised up from her desolations. It is the set time of the Lord, the day of restoration. It is time for My church to arise out of her prostration, to come forth, even the manifestation of My sons and My daughters. Return to the Lord your God and I will heal you, I will deliver you and raise you up once again to live in My sight, a mighty host. Seek My face and I will surely come unto you.
