The world system is trying to do a new thing,
an antichrist thing,
but God is doing the New Thing:
“Abide in Me, and I in you” ~Jesus
“Behold I make ALL things new…
[be] arrayed like a bride beautified and adorned for her Husband…
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I [Myself] will give Water without price from the Fountain (springs) of the Water of Life. He who is victorious shall inherit all these things, and I will be God to him and he shall be My son.
But as for the cowards and the ignoble and the contemptible and the cravenly lacking in courage and the cowardly submissive, and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers and the lewd and adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed)—[all of these shall have] their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone. This is the second death…
Come with me! I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife…
Clothed in God’s glory [in all its splendor and radiance]…
And the city has no need of the sun nor of the moon to give light to it, for the splendor and radiance (glory) of God illuminate it, and the Lamb is its lamp…
But nothing that defiles or profanes or is unwashed shall ever enter it, nor anyone who commits abominations (unclean, detestable, morally repugnant things) or practices falsehood, but only those whose names are recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life” Revelation 21:2-27 AMPC
Crowned Glorified Christ Jesus is the Bridegroom King of kings and Lord of lords:
“Christ is the Head of the church, Himself the Savior of [His] Body…
Christ loves the church and gave Himself up for her, So that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the Word, That He might present the church to Himself in glorious splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such things [that she might be holy and faultless]…nourishes and carefully protects and cherishes, as Christ does the church, Because we are members (parts) of His Body. For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This mystery is very great, but I speak concerning [the relation of] Christ and the church” Ephesians 5:23-32 AMPC
“There is one Body and one Spirit” Ephesians 4:4 RSV
Be presented betrothed as a pure Bride to her One Husband (2 Corinthians 11:2).
Forget what lies behind you; remember not the former things, nor let them come to mind.
“You have heard; now see all this;
and will you not declare it?
From this time forth I make you hear new things,
hidden things which you have not known.
They are created now, not long ago;
before today you have never heard of them,
lest you should say, ‘Behold, I knew them.’
You have never heard, you have never known,
from of old your ear has not been opened.” Isaiah 48:6-8 RSV
“‘Go to this people, and say,
You shall indeed hear but never understand,
and you shall indeed see but never perceive.
For this people’s heart has grown dull,
and their ears are heavy of hearing,
and their eyes they have closed;
lest they should perceive with their eyes,
and hear with their ears,
and understand with their heart,
and turn for me to heal them.’
Let it be known to you then that this salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles; they will listen” Acts 28:26-28
