She is not ready. Her bridal gown still on its hanger. Her shoes unboxed, and her mind wonders how she can do it all alone. They enter the room, and with their presence comes a greater sense of purpose and peace. She stares in wonder, as they ready her gown, her gifts, her shoes and her ring. Speechless at the mercy and strength that pours from their every movement. When she finally raises her voice to question, she can only ask one thing; “who are you and why are you helping me?” They smile before answering, “we are those who go before the bridegroom, he sent us to prepare you for that day.”
In the mysterious, beautiful way of Yeshua, He has gifted His body, His bride with a special group of forerunners who prepare the bride for His soon return. These precious men and women are a gift to the body right now, they are operating in the five-fold ministry as servants with hearts sold out to manifest His glory and His countenance. They are a mercy gift, whose message will be unlike anyone elses. They live to serve Him and to prepare His bride. They are alive for this time, for this moment in the story, for right now. In the following teaching, Yosef discusses these forerunners, their role and their identity.
