Below is an Excerpt from Debramarie Burslem’s book “Grab Hold for Rapture -Modesty Steps” and can be found on the
Magnificat Meal Movements website.
There is a mighty movement of the Spirit in this time for the saints to hold onto the true “vine”. The sign of the vine is the sign of the Messiah in these last days of the preparation for the 120th Jubilee of the Bridegroom Messiah. The vine is a natural earthly sign of the Messiah coming to bloom in its time. We have long ago found a secret of another end time sign that God honors for the obedient saints that it is time to refresh your memory about. It is the secret sign for men and women of modesty as the sign of being covered and separated for God, our divine “headship of covering” whilst living in the world.
“The Lord of Hosts says, When that time comes, ten men will take hold
speaking all the nations –will grab hold of the corner of the garments
of a man of Judah (the Messiah- the Lion of Judah)
saying, ‘we will go with you,for we have heard that God Yahweh is with You’.”
Recently I travelled to meet with a little group of some very dear old friends that I had not seen for a number of years. I was shocked by the deterioration in their MOVEMENTS in beauty of dressing and lack of prayer luster for their everyday life as the ‘Servants of the Living God’. They were very negative about themselves and full of doubt about their position with God though they were all Sabbath keeping faithful’s. They were more involved in emotions and arguments with unworthy relationships than in seeing the bigger picture of these testing times of the “tribulations”. Where once they wore modest clothing, fringed shawls, hats, covered arms etc. in public and many signs for God, there was now very little of that blossoming beauty in their lives. There was a lot of exposed flesh too that made me look away continually.
The stories abounded of many forms of persecutions against them as excuses and also due to their demands and even admitted forgetfulness in their busy lives. We all know what it is like to have experienced betrayals and persecutions. But they are our joy filled learning lessons when under the wings and headship of the Messiah. They had forgotten. Maybe this occurred due to lack of signs that they chose.
One man with a young family wanted to write a book about the topic of their persecution and wanted to include all the events of persecution in my life too. It was of no interest to me to be involved. Fancy drawing that emotional evil down onto his young ones! He was not aware of what he was doing and enjoyed the emotions and interviews of it all instead of focusing on repentance and adoring prayer at this time. When I explained that persecutions have only a value to be a personal testing and then have no further value to be remembered then he saw the point. It would not be good for me to focus on the past hate and abuses of so-called friends and families or others like journalists have done to me either. We need to keep our focus off emotional issues and past events for we are invited to an imminent event of worthy FULL-TIME MOVEMENTS of our attention- to be with the Messiah in adoration and joyful service daily.
It is amazing how emotionally twisted in negativity in the minds of folks can be at times rather than finding ways to “Grab Hold” of the Messiah! It is easier to unjustly blame others as so many of them soon did. One dear older man told me it was my fault that he had fallen into sinful ways as I had left him without a visit for over 5 years. The fact that I have been in constant contact with him seem to be of no interest at the time. He became paranoid about people taking his money and made himself so sick over it he ended up in hospital. All that I could do was pray for him. What can you do when the mind believes without facts and so I had to leave that one with God? I do seriously believe that my modesty MOVEMENTS receive the grace of the protective Hand of God in such sad situations.
Another accuser was of one very withdrawn and angry woman who blamed me also for not visiting her to clear up some stories she had heard. So she claimed it was my fault too for her dressing with immodest clothes and not trusting anyone at all anymore. Even logic to explain caringly that I did not know of the problems she had; only fermented more anger at me. Interestingly, she even claimed that I was her reason for not joining in prayer as no one was there for her and she no longer saw any good examples in her life. She spent a lot of time commenting on my gorgeous flowing loose clothes of modesty and that she had missed the example of that for so long.
It was a sign to her and she did notice that it was a stark contrast to her sign of immodesty and inner anger. The sign of modesty was protecting me again and also impacting on her too. I pray it will flow with her in daily choices to make choices of repentance and the wisdom of better friends and signs to use to “Grab Hold” of the ways to magnify the Messiah Prophet in her life again. Each one of us is not perfect so daily repentance is a total joy to get back into the “Grab Hold” position of the scripture guidance’s of Zechariah 8 above. We need to keep wise companions who are with the Messiah as our protective source of divine trust through the days of testing our choices in the biblical ‘tribulations’ zone. Testing and disruptions and repentance’s are good for the refining of the soul that I and all of us do sincerely need and benefit from. Yippy Yalleluia Yawhweh !
There will always be excuses and emotions as the Biblical Book of Timothy warns so strongly about. Anger and immodesty and lies are not the signs that bring the Messiah to the game to help. However they appear to be the rampant signs in the world at the moment to tempt the dear souls from the Messiah’s call and timings for humanity The many signs, e.g. Biblical Sabbath keeping, to “Grab Hold” of the Messiah are available for each one of us to choose instead of excuses and angry emotions. The choices need to be made personally by each one as free will movements. The gift of personal and glorious movings within the “temple of the Divine Holy Spirit” are best seen in the MOVEMENTS of free will. It is so beautiful and adds huge beauty to the soul when used. It does not need man made religions to make those sort of heavenly choices.
When we MOVE in ways that draw the mercy flow of grace and beauty upon our lives then we find the Messiah becomes our protective coverings
or called unity of “headship”.
We have studied these issues of the many signs of grace in the physical environment before and many of us have lived them. We MOVE then with abundant grace flowing just in time despite the fact of not being perfect yet! When we chose these simple and humble ways of signs of biblical sabbathing and modesty then we each saw the results of them. The many signs have been leading us with graces to assist in the blossoming of our beauty for the Almighty Bridegroom of our souls- just like “little flowers for Almighty Abba/ Father” (“What Might God Say To Me Today” 1+ 2).
So let us all put aside the emotional trashes and get back to personal MOVEMENT choices of worthiness and the signs that they impart to our lives too. This focus on what are the available choices for “saint beauty” is that the Bible makes clear to the saints – if we want to find them. The Messiah is our overall covering of immaculate beauty of heart and our modesty covering is a choice to give the ‘grab hold’ sign to please the Heart of the Messiah.
Everything we do and think and MOVE with is now a commitment to be the cooperators with this dynamic and yet humble work of choosing the many ways and signs to blossom as flowers of heart and beauty for the Messiah. So, “modesty coverings are one of the petals of that beauty to give joy and cooperation to Abba” (taken from “What Might G say To You”- No 1). Father God, rather than man, or man made religions or friendships and relationships, is the focus of our modesty of covering for men and women. These are foolish times to seek to please worldly goals when we are preparing in the final times the “lamps of the wise virgins” to welcome the Bridegroom Messiah for the Jubilee event of the Wedding feast. We are invited and need to dress for the occasion! …..
If we want to know what Yahweh God will say to us about the modesty signs used to “Grab Hold” of the Messiah then we can go to the Bible to find the answers. So if you do not want to heed what I say then go to the Bible and find out for yourself as I too had to do. I have had enough of slanderers and angry demons with their words of accusers so keep any cries of heresy and accusations of intolerance to your own evil self – ‘cos I do not honor or heed you on this issue. For this reason I am not interested in comments either. I simply do it the way that Yashuah and His family did it to be our example of MOVEMENT and that is good enough for me and my household.
However, it is worth understanding what some may have neglected, due to either misinformation, ignorance, or lack of study of the Bible or understanding are several important commands that are easy to rectify for the humble of heart.
These biblical commandments are many and are what God left there for us as guide posts to be the signs for these times and all times. They are the Almighty Yahweh Abbas’ signs that are natural and easy annual rehearsals or ‘trainers’ of fun festivals of prayer signs that prepare you for greater obedience in the more difficult areas of obedience e.g. sacred Sabbath events annually.
What I am referring to specifically is the “wise Virgin” type signs that biblically are as follows below for your information:
1. Sabbath in true biblical observance.
2. The Sabbath Feasts of the Yahweh.
3. Biblical Food laws (Lev 11/Deut 14), e.g. no pig as pig is not food for humans- saints anyway.
4. Removing pagan practices from your life, (i.e. Christmas, Easter, Halloween etc.)
5. Clothing in modesty (that does not mean you have to totally forgo style, it simply means that you need to carefully consider your garments.
6. Adding tassels or fringes to our shawls etc. as sign to “grab hold” onto the Messiah as a MOVEMENT “for all generations”.
7. Use of a blue thread on prayer garments & for special days of celebration e.g. our Blue days of prayer worldwide to pray for the “reign of peace” with adoration and praise of Father God.
If you have not yet had a chance to prayerfully consider, study, and implement these specific areas of worship into your life yet, I would strongly recommend you study them to bring the extra blessings into you through the Divine Spirit. We all want to find what God wants His beloved ones to know for these challenging times of our time in history.
