esus stated many times in scripture that we would have to be in Him and that He would need to be in us if we are to be made acceptable to You Father.
Father it was Your will that Jesus accepted our dead spirit on the cross, and that was the reason He came, so that he could bear our death. Father the righteous man, Jesus was without sin and therefore had not incurred the wages of sin, which is death. When You placed Him on that cross He understood that death would not come willingly to him, and that the only way he would be removed for off the cross would be if we, the elect, the Bride were willing to remove him by offering to You, for one time only the only thing we truly own, our right to die. As You accepted our offering and transferred our death to Jesus, we were given in return His Spirit, which He committed into Your care. It is written in the scriptures that the body without a spirit is death, and if You had not given us the prefect Spirit of Life then on our conversation we would have immediately died.
Paul the Apostle highlighted this when he says in scriptures that 'we have become a new creation'; in this he means that the old man (dead spirit) has left us and the new perfect man (living spirit) now dwells within us. Father as we are now called the elect of God, and are among the first born children of God, (in that we have been raised with Jesus when he arose for the dead, it was the dead spirit of Adam that arose in Jesus and is now seated in Him at the right hand of Power) help us to understand the importance of continuing to walk in that perfect relationship with You that Your true Son walked with You while He sojourning of this earth.
Father we know that You view us as being alive to You in the same way that Jesus was alive to You, therefore there is an expectation on us to reflect You as He reflected You in all that He did and said.
The Bride which You chose for your Son has been washes clean with Jesus'; blood and was restored to life by the indwelling of Jesus'; Spirit which was the only Living Spirit that has been born of woman. The scriptures state clearly that in the first Adam we die but in the last Adam (Jesus) we have been made alive. It is Jesus'; intention to retuning our own spirit back to us again, this is scheduled at His return, at the last trumpet, that is the time of our own resurrections and not before.
Father it is not hidden from You that many of the sisters of the true Bride claim that they are the one who You intent to marry to Your Son. However we know that the true bride will be obedient to the guidance of the Holy Spirit and will not accept the lies and misrepresentation of her true love Jesus. Within the estimated 38,000 separate Christian denominations on the earth today, You has skilfully hidden the true Bride among them. Father we know that you are authorising the start of the process to separate the Bride from her carnally minded sisters, and that the call which is to be voiced aloud over the entire earth is the call which only the true bride can hear, a call to come out from among her sisters so that she can be made ready for her pending marriage.
As the separation of the Bride from her sisters progresses, the sisters of the Bride will grow to hate her as they realise that they are not the chosen, and the spiritual poison which inhabits their teaching will become visible as a witness that You are not with them. It's fruit manifesting as a slow lingering death to all who continue to eat from their table.
Isn't it strange Father that although the household of mankind were agreeable (thou somewhat reluctantly) to the giving of one of their daughters in marriage to your Son Jesus. They were only too willing to accept the down payment of the bridal price. They assumed that Your mercies and blessing would make them rich, they didn't understand that when the full payment was accomplished that it would allow them to be free from sin and death forever.
2000 years ago, at the appointed hour, as scheduled in Your most Holy Plan, the fullness of the bridal price was paid and foolishly mankind rejected it wholesale, preferring instead the temporary blessing which were only intended to be the down payment. The blessing of the land and the increase for their goods with safely and protection from their enemies. But you chose to proclaim the gift of life from a loving God to a dying world through the foolishness of preaching.
Father You did not do this in secret but rather You established a successive order, as in everything You do, so that the family of the Bride could observe the signposts which You established within scripture so that they could prepared for the marriage in advance and not be caught off guard.
Father you did this by establishing days which were to be established as a memorial, which the family of the bride were to observe. It was not however necessary for the Bride to observe the memorial days as she was to be instructed by the personal counsellor whom You tasked with preparing her for her role as a queen and a daughter in the family of the Great God. However the family of the Bride rejected the signs recorded for them and reject the agreement made by their ancestors with You. Therefore the day of the marriage will come on them suddenly and they will not be prepared for the coming of your Son Jesus who will rule them as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Come quickly Lord Jesus and claim your Bride from among them and ascent the throne which has been established on this earth and from there rule forever.--Previous--|--Next--
