“Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ (Matthew 25:11-12)
Here is my impression and narrative of what is happening now and the time of awakening we are in:
The Bridegroom is running desperately through the streets looking for His Bride, but most do not recognize Him or know Him. The Bridegroom weeps as He did over Jerusalem long ago because they missed the time of their visitation (Lk. 19:41-44). Interestingly, it was shortly thereafter that Jesus went into the temple and cleansed it (v.45-46).
This is what the Lord is doing now in preparation for His glory and His coming. That is the cry I am hearing that is greater than any other cry because much of His Church is not ready for Him and do not recognize Him. And why don’t those who profess His Name recognize Him? Why aren’t they ready for Him?
One of the big reasons is because many prophets and priests (ministers) have lulled His Bride to sleep by teaching them these modern, false concepts of love and grace that allow them to do what they want and live how they want. There is no mention of the judgments of God and His wrath or severity. It is because of the unleashing of these kind of seducing spirits and doctrines of demons that many can no longer endure sound doctrine, but having itching ears after their own lusts, they heap up to themselves teachers (2 Tim. 4:3).
A deep cleansing followed by a loving devotion and consecration to God are what will prepare the way for the manifestation of the true glory of God in these days before Jesus returns. Here is a prophecy given by an obscure saint recently that depicts the time and season the body of Christ is in.
THE OLD CLEANING WOMAN PROPHECY
“Lo, I will come to your door as a cleaning woman, yes, an old cleaning woman, to clean out the house you inhabit, says the Lord. In a time which is inopportune to you, I will arrive at your door with bucket and mop, with duster and scouring cloth, with soap and rags, with broom and polish; yes, I will stand at your door, and you will not recognize Me. You will see an old woman, not desirable and young to match your style. And she will begin the cleaning up of the dirt and the dust, of the rubbish and the filth, and bring order into each room and compartment of your dwelling place. From behind every hidden doorway, she will sweep away every venomous snake and scorpion and poisonous spider, and shake out with her strong hands the very carpets of crimson and gold. With a ladder, she will climb to the very top and sweep clean that which for many years has accumulated and wash with soap and water the windows until they sparkle. So she will do and continue to do until I am satisfied. For her labour will be for My reward.
“See, I come swiftly at a time you do not expect it, and I will demand from each an account of the time and labour of your service for which you have received reward.
“Hold fast unto your faith, and do not waver, oh faithful ones of the Lord, for see I come, yes I come quickly, and I will take charge of My Church. Every habitation which has been broken down and neglected I will cleanse and restore. I will turn out the false prophets and the false priests so that every heart will mourn and be silent and fearful at the mention of my Name!” -Anonymous
