TITLE: "My Love wants to Flood"
By Kimberly Miller


"I want to flood My bride with My love. I want her to overflow like a basin filled up with intoxicating affection towards Me. I want this love to overflow Her shores and pour forth to fill the banks of humanity with the knowledge of the love of God, just as the waters cover the seas. What I want, however, is not necessarily what I achieve. As Creator and Maker of the universe I lack the might and power to achieve this, simply because I restrain Myself from demonstrating this right to be loved. I desire free choice, not programmed hearts-I give up a lot.

I want to overflow My bride with love. Streams of living water pour forth from My heart towards her, but they are met at the door of her heart by barriers that hinder this love from rushing within and intoxicating her. My love drips in; itís denied full access from consuming her with affection by these walls that have stolen her devotion and mulled her allegiance to Me.

Barriers of offense have been built, of anger and bitterness at My ways. Walls of mistrust have been set in place; she refuses to trust in My name. Idols block the pathways as temples and shrines litter her floodgates. I want to flood My bride with My love, but there is much to be done prior to such an action.

Love drips in. Love barely is exerted by her towards the earth. Humanity lies bleak, deaf, dumb, and dying, unable to be freed and healed because My bride is empty of My desire, lacking the knowledge of God. How can one go forth making disciples of all nations if she is filled with fluff? With whimsical fancies and pleasantries of truffles and sweets, and not the sound meat of the word of God that offends and moves heartstrings? She is puffed up with fluff. There is no room for the love of God to flood her; itís denied access in and unable to find expanse to dwell in.

Two things-three are necessary: walls hindering must be removed; false teaching and delusion must be replaced by sound truth; My affection and desire towards her must be made known-then and only then can the knowledge of My love flood forth.

At the moment she drips;it would take a long time to water the earth. Since My return is soon We have quite a work to do to ready her. She must be ready soon.

Thus, I will smash down the walls, revealing My goodness, trustworthiness, and justice. I will destroy her idols and smite the lovers she lusted after. I will reveal My nature and ways, and bind up the spirit of python that has played on her desires. I will fill her with the knowledge of love that she might pour forth My love upon all humanity.

Thereís a dam that must be broken, removed, and overthrown; I am coming, I am coming soon. Will your love overwhelm the world with the knowledge of Me?"

Really quite beautiful and you have done a nice job with it. I like the way that you showed God's passion and desire for his people. There was one line, I give up a lot, that disturbed me a little bit. I could see people mis-read this and believe that God gives up on us. I know that was not your intention though. You did a nice job of covering the topic. This was quite poetic and read like a poem. It definitely gives the reader something to think about. And that is always a good thing. Good job.

I felt that I was reading a Psalm. It makes me think -- is MY heart where it should be? I need to take the time to examine it and make sure that I am open to his love. I want a flood, not a drip. Excellent!
