The bible ends with an invitation! The invitation is from the Spirit and the Bride to “Come!” The death and rebirth has happened, the romancing and wooing has happened, the getting to know God period has happened, the engagement period has happened, the wedding has happened, and the wedding feast is prepared and sitting on the table. The invitation to “Come” has been given. If you are anything like me, if I spend a lot of time preparing a dinner and invite my family to “come” as the feast is ready, hot and on the table, I am not pleased to witness them continue to do whatever they were doing before I invited them to come to the table!
The Spirit and the Bride have invited human beings to come to the table and eat the celebratory wedding feast, so why are so few eating, enjoying and celebrating? Why are so many continuing to divide and argue about all the parts in between and fail to see that it is already done and finished for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear? A house divided cannot stand. A wedding party divided never gets to enjoy the feast!!! Too many are divorcing themselves from the victory; too many are separating themselves from the finished work of Christ.
I am choosing to embody the knowledge and truth of God (Romans 2:20). I refuse to listen to any human wisdom or knowledge or truth when Jesus said the Holy Spirit would teach us everything we need to know!
Revelation 22 says the River of the Water of Life is flowing through me and the tree of life is on either side. The tree of life is the Christ in the midst of my physical body, the temple for the Holy Spirit. I have become a fountain of Living Water! I am a twelve story bejeweled fountain of the Water of Life! God produces twelve fruits within me and the leaves of the tree of life keep me in perfect health! I worship God and the Lamb and their names are written on my forehead, not death and ashes, and nothing accursed can come into or on my body temple that is false. The Lord God is the Light of my body and the Lamb is the Lamp of my body! God and the Lamb reign in me for ever and ever.
These are the words that are trustworthy and true, spoken twice for emphasis (Rev 21:5 and Rev 22:6). “He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make ALL things new.” “It is done!” We are the new Jerusalem when we turn and accept the finished work of Christ. “Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy” Rev 22:11. No one knows the time or date because it is only known by Our Father when each human being will choose to repent (change your mind), turn and be healed, wake up to the finished work of the cross, and enter the kingdom of heaven on earth through the door of Jesus.
“Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates” Rev 22:14. You can only wash your robe in the blood of the Lamb; it is the only way to purify, refine and be made white as snow, as if you had never made a mistake, been wrong or wronged, sinned, or did something you regretted. Contrary to human wisdom we do need to repent and be forgiven and be made into a new creation to enter the new heavens on earth now (NHOEN). “Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and fornicators and murderers and idolaters, and every one who loves and practices falsehood” Rev 22:15.
The wedding feast is ready! “The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come.’ And let her who hears say, ‘Come.’ And let her who is thirsty come, let her who desires take the water of life without price” Rev 22:17.
Wake up and recognize you are being wooed and romanced! Get to know God intimately and personally. Get married to God: the two shall become one! Jesus prayed that we would become perfectly one as he and his Father were perfectly one. “For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name” Isaiah 54:5. “You shall be called by a new name which the mouth of the Lord will give…you shall no longer be termed Forsaken, and Desolate; but you shall be called My delight is in her and Married; for the Lord delights in you, and you shall be married…as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you” Isaiah 62:2-5
It is time to eat and drink and be merry!!! You are invited to Come!!! You are invited to TAKE what has already been prepared through the finished work of Christ. It is done!!! Behold, ALL things were made new!!! Come!!!!
