Body Parts and the Last Days

My church, I have established you as a Body. Each of My children, I have made a body-part in My Church, My Body. Whom I have called, I have equipped, I have required each of you to function and to operate in the body, fitting properly. My children, there is no one whom I left out without a calling; there is no one in which I have not assigned a place.
Some, I have made part of the eye, so that you can see for the whole body and give it direction. Some, I have formed part of the mouth, so that you can speak My Word, to teach My children. Some, I have made into the nose, so that you can discern between that which is good and evil. Some of you, I have fashioned into legs and feet so that you can run with the gospel of peace and bring salvation to many. Some, I have made into the arm, so that you can do mighty exploits in My Name. Some, I have made into the heart, so that you can express My compassion and serve others with My tender Love.
Notice how each of these parts has been assigned an honorable position. These body-parts operate in the open; they are conspicuous. No one despises them.
In contrast, consider the other body parts, which are not as conspicuous as the first. These parts are not accorded respect as they are regarded as ‘less honorable’, ‘weak’, or ‘despised.’ They have to be hidden as they are given less esteem. They are commonly a butt of jokes; they are considered as objects of shame. Therefore, they are concealed from public view. They have to be meticulously clothed and covered.
But these ‘despised ones’, ‘weaker body parts’ they are glorious, called for the highest purpose. Hidden from public view, they develop. They develop taking many years. They must wait for many years before they come to maturity. It is only at their adulthood; they are made of use. Only at their appointed time, they enter their service. Their service is of the highest calling. These body-parts come to their service on the day of marriage. They are created as body-parts of joy, organic union! It is these ‘despised’ body parts, these ‘last of all ones,’ which I have created to bring joy unspeakable to the whole body. Moreover, as no other member of the body can do, I have designed them to give rise to a new life, a new generation.
Now apply this analogy to My Church, My Body.
In My Church, I have assigned a few whom I have appointed as the ‘little ones’, the ‘despised ones.’ I have concealed and hid them from the public gaze for many years. These, I have hidden them under My wings for many years to develop and to mature. Them I have been prepared for the Last Day, for the Great Wedding Day of the Lamb. Therefore, it will be on the Great Day of the Festivities that these ‘weak members’ will be revealed and come into their calling.
These humiliated and despised Body parts will appear clothed with costly apparel, beautified, exceedingly, and abundantly. They shall receive the honor on that Glorious Wedding Day. Through them, I bring My Body untold joy, ecstasy unending. It shall be them who shall bring a sublime union between God and the human race. They shall enable the whole body to become fruitful and bring forth the New Race, the Resurrected Ones into being.
The same I shall use as My chosen instruments to humiliate and overthrow the devil. The same I shall use to bring Satan’s demise and eternal shame. Yes, these hidden, concealed, secret ones, I shall use as My weapons of mass destruction. With them, I shall shake the kingdom of darkness; with them, I shall empty the grave; and with them, I shall shutdown the Babylon system of your day, says your God.
‘No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, on these we bestow greater honor; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty; but are presentable parts have no such need. But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it.’ 1 Cor. 12: 22-24.
‘But you Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be the Prince in Israel; whose goings forth have been from old, from everlasting.’ Micah 5: 2.
'The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.' (Ps 118:22)
