2 “Enlarge the place of your tent,
And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings;
Do not spare;
Lengthen your cords,
And strengthen your stakes.
3 For you shall expand to the right and to the left,
And your descendants will inherit the nations,
And make the desolate cities inhabited.
4 “ Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed;
Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame;
For you will forget the shame of your youth,
And will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore.
5 For your Maker is your husband,
The LORD of hosts is His name;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
He is called the God of the whole earth.
The Lord says,
“I have called you to a tent because it is flexible and easily moved, because of how fast I am accelerating you towards your destiny. If you stop to build a building your destiny will leave you behind. I am giving you an ever expanding tent, and if you stop to build a building it will only become a memorial of what could have been.
Your cords are your friends, affiliations, and partnerships, for a three fold cord is not easily broken, and they must continually be lengthened and strengthened. Some of the cords are not adding strength, and will need to be replaced. Some cords were great for the size tent you had, but will not be sufficient for your new tent. You must never stop looking for more, longer, and stronger cords. Continually lengthening and strengthening of cords.
You must allow me to give you larger and larger stakes. Your stakes are your vision of how awesome and powerful you believe I am. You cannot hold up a tent the size of a circus tent with the same stakes and cords used for a 2 person tent. You must allow me to continually lengthen and strengthen you cords, friends, affiliations, partnerships, and you must allow me to give you bigger and bigger stakes, because this is what holds up the weight of your tent. The size of your tent will be limited only by the size of your cords and stakes.
I have called you to dispose the inhabitants of the land, which are the giants you are facing; because you are the descendants my word is speaking of. Everyone on this side of the cross are the descendants My word is speaking of, and My kingdom is an ever advancing kingdom, and I have called you to carry out My agenda to advance My kingdom.
You will inhabit the desolate cities, and the cities are your spheres of influence, your family, work, ministries, schools, governments, and churches, those that are local, national, and worldwide. These cities will never be desolate again. Why? Because your tent is in it, and where your tent is My Kingdom is there. I have filled your tent with abundance for every good work, and your tent is filled with every spiritual blessing. Your tent does not dwell in the realm of need, but dwells in your rightful inheritance. Every tent of need in the cities we dwell will know that your tent is the place of true abundance, and that their needs can be met at your tent. People will tell others to go to your tent, because you have more than enough to meet their need.
Why is your tent so overflowing with abundance? Because your husband and provider of your tent is the Creator and King of heaven and earth, and He withholds nothing from His bride.
So take off the widow clothes of worry, grief, unforgiveness, unbelief, anger, bitterness, and anything that is not apart of who I am says the Lord, and never put them on again. When you think about putting them on again imagine Me standing at the alter in my best bridegroom clothes filled with the joy of my wedding day, and you standing at the alter dressed in black with a black veil over your face. But understand my love, that My mercies are new everyday, and My heart is filled with the love and joy of our wedding day on every new day. Everyday I am walking in my first love for you say’s the Lord.
Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning, and you are my bride and the night is over. This is the day of continual mornings, so count it all joy because I your husband will never leave you nor forsake you. You have no need for widow clothes anymore, because I am your husband, and I rule, reign, live, and love forever. Today is the day to burn your widow clothes, because they are not needed, and will never be used again.
I am telling you that shame is no longer a part of who you are, because all of your shame is with your old name. I am your husband, and you are my bride. You take on my name I do not take on your name say’s the Lord. My name has atoned and destroyed all of your shame, so do not live under your old name. If My people who are called by My name, and you as my bride are called by my name.
If you will submit and obey as My loving bride, I will continue to expand the size of your tents, I will continually lengthen and strengthen you cords, I will continue to give you bigger and bigger stakes. We will drive out the giants in the land and we will inhabit the desolate cities, and they will never be desolate again because We are there, and were We are is filled with the glory and abundance of my kingdom say’s the Lord.”
