For many nights now I have been in visions where I am washing the feet of my Lord with my tears. Why? because of Grace.
As more and more of the depths of the grace of the Father are being released to me in waves of revelation, I am overcome by how unworthy I even am to stand in His presence. Yes, we have been made righteous, we are heirs, sons and daughters…but this is all only by grace. Nothing that we could ever do could ever win us grace, we don’t deserve it…it is such a precious gift that it is mind-boggling.
When I see Jesus on the cross during my prayer times, I am wrenched inside out by the knowledge that it was also my sin that put Him there, that it was because of me that He suffered such a cruel death, to pay the price in order to redeem me, to shed His blood so that I would forever be made righteous.
You were bought with a price [you were actually purchased with the precious blood of Jesus and made His own]. So then, honor and glorify God with your body.
1 Corinthians 6:20 AMP
And so it was one evening in my prayer time, that I stood before the Son of Man. He told me to look at Him, and keep on looking at Him. And as I did this, these words entered my mind, “And the Word became flesh.” It was then that I slipped into a vision of Jesus on the cross, His flesh cut, bruised, raw and torn, bleeding, open. The reality of the flesh of Jesus just flooded my spirit. He became flesh so that His flesh would be torn up and bruised…for us…for me.
After this encounter, I would see myself in visions over the next few weeks during my prayer time, just crying and crying, bent down and washing the feet of my Lord with my tears. I had nothing else to offer Him after everything He had done for me. I cried and cried and cried.
As we recently stood before a pure white door with a shield on it written Grace, the Lord said to me,
“Daughter, those who truly understand grace, grace will abound in them and they will be able to extend grace to others, to those in their families, communities and cities. Those whom much is forgiven, love more. This is the purpose of the Father, so that all men will come to salvation by grace.
This Abundant Grace from the Father is what allows men to enter into the Kingdom. One must enter through the door without any baggage or luggage, for everything that one brings with him is nothing but rags in the eyes of the Father. You are to bring only yourself, not your works or achievements or plans on how you will serve the kingdom. The Father is searching for those with no plan, those who have fully given themselves over to be led by His Spirit and not by their own understanding.
Those who are completely reliant on Him because they understand that if it had not been for Saving Grace, they would’ve continued to live a life in darkness only to go on and spend an eternity in even worse darkness. These are my children of the light, who receive their daily bread from Me personally and not from other men. They walk in intimate relationship with Me and the Father and we dwell in them. They are our treasure and joy. They shine the light of the grace within them so brightly, that the enemy flees from them. They are totally surrendered to the Father’s will. They understand that they are nothing without Us and they cry out in the depths of the night, “Lord please don’t ever take your Spirit from Me!” They are my lovers and my friends. They do not perform in religious efforts to draw near to me, they are My sheep and they know My voice. They are called MINE by the Father. They understand that they have fallen short of the glory of God and that others have also fallen short of the glory. But the Father takes them from glory to glory, and because they have compassion on My sheep, they take them with them on the journey that goes onwards and upwards. Receive grace and then abound in grace daughter.”
A Sinful Woman Forgiven
Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And He went to the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to eat. And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil. Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he spoke to himself, saying, “This Man, if He were a prophet, would know who and what manner of woman this is who is touching Him, for she is a sinner.”
And Jesus answered and said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.”
So he said, “Teacher, say it.”
“There was a certain creditor who had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing with which to repay, he freely forgave them both. Tell Me, therefore, which of them will love him more?”
Simon answered and said, “I suppose the one whom he forgave more.”
And He said to him, “You have rightly judged.” Then He turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head. You gave Me no kiss, but this woman has not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came in. You did not anoint My head with oil, but this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant oil. Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.”
Then He said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”
And those who sat at the table with Him began to say to themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?”
Then He said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you. Go in peace.”
Luke 7: 36-50
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
Rom 3: 23-26
