The Lord told me that my life as a prophet is very parabolic. Before I left for my family summer vacation, the Lord told me, Tiffany – you’re a diamond with many, many facets who’s endured many, many cuts. I knew exactly what the Lord was speaking to me. He was referencing a brilliant cut diamond. I used to be a diamond certified consultant and jewelry inventory clerk at Service Merchandise, where I was responsible for the management and inventory of a million dollar jewelry inventory and I had to know all the 4 C’s of a diamond: color, clarity, cut, and carat weight, amongst many other precious gemstones and metals. It is there where I learned about servant leadership from my Jewelry Manager, Christian Seidel, before I was born again. How prophetic? Seidel means a large mug for beer, but for this post we will reference it as a cup. Then to further confirm it, the Lord put a truck in front of me on my commute yesterday that said Diamond Brite.
The brilliant cut diamond has the most facets and produces the most brilliance of all diamonds. The most valuable of diamonds have the most cuts (full cut), 58 to be exact, where single cut diamonds have about 16-18 cuts. The more facets that a diamond has provides for the maximized light return through the top of the diamond, causing a rainbow spectrum of spectral colors, producing a fire and brilliance up through to the table and the crown of the diamond.
You were not satisfied to be just a lump of coal conforming to the world’s ways, but you’ve endured great heat and pressure to be formed into a diamond. In you’re raw form, it did not satisfy you to stay there, but you hungered and thirsted for righteousness and continued in My process. You received many, many cuts sacrificing and surrendering it ALL to me, holding all things loosely before Me. There were times you felt as though, Lord let this cup pass from me, but not My will but Your will be done Lord. You would not allow for internal flaws to remain and/or form from wounds, hurts, offenses, rejections, abuse, and/or persecution that would occlude My Light, but you released them onto Me that you may refract My light to the highest degree, remaining pure before Me, dispersing the seven colors of My rainbow, the seven Spirits of God: (1) Spirit of the LORD, (2) Spirit of wisdom, (3) Spirit of understanding, (4) Spirit of counsel, (5) Spirit of power, (6) Spirit of knowledge, (7) Spirit of the fear of the Lord. The Lord says the time is coming and is even at hand, that I will shine My Pure Light on you, that all that will see you will see the brilliance and fire that I have put within you.
Proverbs 31:10, 29 An excellent woman one who is spiritual, capable, intelligent, and virtuous, who is he who can find her? Her value is more precious than jewels and her worth is far above rubies or pearls. “Many daughters have done nobly, and well with the strength of character that is steadfast in goodness, But you excel them all.”
