You spend time, you spend labor, you spend great diligence, you act in a way. It is a priority to you to make clean, to beautify the outside of the cup. When I say unto you My greatest joy, My greatest pleasure, is when My children cry out to Me for the power to make clean the inside of the cup. They allow the fire of My Spirit to fall on them to burn up the wood, hay, and stubble that is in their life, and the wrong attitudes that are in their heart, the wrong thinking that is in their mind.
The Lord says there are many incenses, there are many odors, there are many smelly incenses that come up before My throne, and some, and some are more pleasing than others. But the sweetest incense, says God, is when My children say; perfect me Lord in the beauty of you Holiness, allow your Spirit God to fill me and pour out your anointing upon me, to empower me to live a Godly life and a holy life before you, says God. Do not allow yourself to be tricked by the deceptions of this world, where you will find favor if you beautify yourself, you will find favor if you make the outside of the cup look good. For there are many religious people who focus on looking good on the outside but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
I say this is an hour when the Bridegroom comes when you think not, this is an hour when you are to prepare yourself for the coming of your Lord, this is an hour when time is growing short, this is an hour to get serious about your walk with God. Do not look to the right or to the left, or to other people, but rather look into your own heart and ask Me to purify it, ask Me to make clean the inside of the cup, ask Me to cleanse you from the inside out, by My Power, by My anointing. For as many as love Me, to them I gave the power to become the sons and daughters of God. Do not be discouraged in this hour, do not frustrate yourself
