Habakkuk 2:2 Then the LORD answered me and said: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so that a runner may read it.”
I asked the Lord what it means to be His disciple. This is what He answered:
"To be My disciple means to walk as I walked - to be as I Am. First and foremost - I Am Love! I love you and I desire you to walk in the type of love that I displayed and modeled for you.
"The Only way I could walk in love as the Son of Man was to spend time with My Father. Father loves Me and I love My Father. We are separate, but we are One. As the Son of Man I faced many opportunities to rightfully lash out at people, but the love that I had, the love that came from My Father, overrode it. The times you read in Scripture that sound like I was angry (when I spoke the woes to the Scribes and Pharisees and when I cleansed the temple) were from the love of the Father. It was not anger as much as it was sorrow. I know there is much debate on this and I do not bring you a new doctrine - I bring you My heart’s cry.
"Love one another as I have loved you."
"Many cry out to see Me - to see My face and I tell you the truth - when you look at one another you are looking at Me. Look to the least of the brethren. What you do to them, you do to Me. What you do with each other, you do with Me. What you do for them, you do for Me.
"Understand that I desire for you to care for one another. You can in no way fathom how many are alone with no help." (Suddenly I saw the entire world and as it turned I could see millions, maybe billions of hurting people in that brief moment of time.)
"One person cannot take care of the whole world. However, if you will touch people around you in My name and with My love, and then those whom you touch will turn in kind and touch those around them with My love, and those then will also touch others who are around them with My love - THEN MY LOVE WILL BE LIKE A FIRE SPREADING THROUGH A DRY FOREST.”
At that moment I saw a fire begin and spread to the north, south, east and west. Then suddenly I saw the entire earth suddenly ignited (like a gas stove or propane grill) and vividly heard the whooshing sound of the swift blaze!
The Lord continued: "I Am the light of the world and in Me there is no darkness. As My disciples reflect the light of My love, they ignite others to reflect the light of My love.
"Do you see?
"I Am a Consuming Fire! But, I do not bring a destructive fire. I bring a fire that burns off the ropes and sets men, women and children free. My fire is My passion for My church. I burn with love for My church. Touch each other with this pure and holy fire. Touch each other with this pure and holy love. IGNITE those around you with holy fire.
"Be careful not to allow the enemy of your soul to manipulate you into perverting My love. My love sets people free. My perfect love destroys fear. My love covers you. My love will never lead you into immorality. Be aware! Satan will use your own desires to sin against Me. You must be wise! You must be diligent! You must stand guard!
"To be My disciple means to be like Me. I Am like My Father. We are holy! Be holy as I Am holy and IGNITE those around you to be holy. I would not say this if it were not possible. This can only be done as you are led by My Holy Spirit. So follow My lead. Heed your Teacher.
"Come, Follow Me."
