Revelations, Visions and Messages 4
4. Passion Will Sustain Our Relationship
And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. (Revelation 21:6 ESV)
The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come. ” And let the one who hears say, “Come. ” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price. (Revelation 22:17 ESV)
In this vision, I was in the Spirit, telling the Lord how much I love Him. The Lord loves to hear words of love and worship and He had commanded me in the past to keep expressing my love to Him and not be cold towards Him.
As I was pouring out my words of love, worship and adoration to Him, He came upon me and I was filled with joy and exhilaration. A heavenly love enveloped me and I was in ecstasy and great delight. Then I saw His garment and exclaimed to Him, “I saw your garment! I saw your garment!” He was putting on a magnificent white inner garment and an elegant outer garment made of gold. The heavenly garment was beautiful beyond description as I marvelled at the glorious design.
Then I said to Him, “ I love you. What are your likes and dislikes? Tell me what will sustain our relationship.”
Then the Lord replied in a stern voice. “Passion. Passion will sustain our relationship.” Then I came out of the trance.
I guess the Lord’s voice was stern because He had taught me the importance of seeking His presence and desire for His presence but I still fall short of the level of passion and intimacy He desires. He wants hot burning love that will magnetise Him to us not tepidness, lukewarmness and coldness.
The Lord is full of love, passion and fire and He also desires love, passion and fire. Love for Him leads to constant obedience and the command to us in Ephesians 5:18 to be filled with the Holy Spirit is part of obedience. He is constantly waiting for us to embrace Him but we are filled with self effort and self dependence.
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. Ephesians 5:18
The conclusion is that passion is very essential and vital in our relationship with Him. We must desire and hunger for Him and His presence in order to be constantly filled. We should do this in the place of prayer, intimacy, fellowship, worship and constant communion with Him.
May the grace of our Lord Jesus be with us always. Amen.
