As I was praying and asking Father for a word to encourage us, especially those who feel like they are so alone, those who just don't think they have the strength to go on one more day waiting for His return, He told me to study each scripture that He has given us about His redeemed so that we would be uplifted. As I did this, He spoke through His Word. He is so incredibly amazing, and His grace is always enough to get us through even the most difficult of days. Stay strong my family, He is so close now. He promised He would be faithful and He will be. You are not alone! Don't despair! Our Groom is coming for us!

I am the God of Truth. I am not a man, that I can lie. My blood has purchased you My precious ones. I have redeemed you from the curse of the law, being made the curse. I reconciled you with My body through death, so that I may present you holy in My sight, without blemish and free from accusation. I have not redeemed you from corruptible things, but from incorruptible. I have formed you and fashioned you. I have redeemed you and called you by name. You are Mine! I have saved you from your enemies, from those stronger than you, and My mercy endures forever. My beloved, the day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redeemed is come.
In My great mercy, I have powerfully led you forth with a strong and mighty hand. I have guided you in strength by My greatness, and I have redeemed your soul out of all distress. I will not allow My people to be destroyed, as I will restore to you your rightful inheritance. In your affliction, I was afflicted, and the angel of My presence has saved you. I have loved you, pitied you, and carried you My children. Your Redeemer lives forevermore! I ever live to make intercession for you! I have blotted out all your transgressions. You will be called, "the holy people, the redeemed of the Lord." No lion or beast shall go up, but only My redeemed.
Break forth My beloved. Break forth with joy and sing together, all you who are afflicted and downtrodden! My ransomed ones will return aor the LORD has comforted His people. Declare to the ends of the earth, "I am redeemed by the blood of the Lamb!"
