compiling what God is saying to His people about "church"

Hi All,

Please feel free to pass this on to others.

I've been compiling what the Lord has been saying to me about "church" and would like to hear what He's been saying to others. I currently have about 12 pages from the past 2 years (unedited, comments included) where He has been speaking about both the local church and the Church Universal.

We are in what I call the Age of Jude, referring to the 2nd to last book in the Bible. It is an age where people are falling out of traditional church -- just as the leaves fall from trees in the Autumn. It is a time of harvest and a time of preparation, where we need to draw closer to Him than ever before so that we have enough "oil in our lamps". It is a time where the Bride is entering maturity.

It is a time of hope, produced by suffering.

The ANAL-yst in me is interested in compiling and analyzing the words He's spoken to His Body. The strategist in me wants to align my tactics with the vision. The child in me just wants to hear the Father's Voice more clearly.

If you are interested in participating, please send me as much as you are able to share. I plan to collect individual revelations and then assemble contributors to seek clarifying revelation, which will be condensed in a referenced commentary.

Also, please let me know if you plan to participate but need some time to gather your notes / journals.

Then the LORD replied:
"Write down the revelation
and make it plain on tablets
so that a herald may run with it.

For the revelation awaits an appointed time;
it speaks of the end
and will not prove false.
Though it linger, wait for it;
it will certainly come and will not delay.
Habakkuk 2:2-3

May the peace, joy and blessings of Jesus the Christ and our Risen King be with you!
