A Day of Transition
We are approaching the birthing of a new day in the Lord.
The beginnings of this transitional period is being felt as
we move from the present day of grace into the new day of
Regardless of where we are in the Lord's economy of time,
today is the only time we have in which we must meet the Lord.
Within many, a special inner working of the Lord taking place.
This time of visitation is not openly visible. From within
the Church, the Lord is calling a people unto Himself. These
are being prepared for this critical hour, as John the Baptist
was uniquely prepared for his hour.
In Jesus’ time, a transition was made from law to grace.
In our day of transition, we are moving from grace into the
day of His Kingdom, the "third day." We are, as
a Bride, being adorned to know Him; and then as Sons, to be
a part of His purposes now, and for all eternity.
We are not much different from His disciples who misunderstood
His purposes in their day. They were so adjusted to the world
system, as they knew it, that they looked to Him for political

will constrain Him to abide with them as He leads them into
the coming new day.
We are approaching a time of great deception. There is an
urgency to personally come to know the Lord as never before.
There comes a "knowing" through being with Him that
can come in no other way. As we spend time in His presence,
it is the growing yearning within our hearts for His presence
that will carry us through the days ahead.
We can only understand what it will mean to continually abide
in His Presence and Glory in the coming new Heaven and Earth
as we presently receive touches of being in His Presence and
Glory. As these become a reality within us, the desire to
abide in His unveiled Presence in that day will grow in our
hearts until we will say, as John said, "Even so come
