Readiness

God has already done His Part: sent Jesus, who did what God sent Him to do: the finished work of the Cross, for the Joy of receiving the Bride who has Christ’s Spirit, belonging to the Bridegroom;

having repented, turned from the world to Jesus, through Whom we can return to God our Father; receiving Holy Spirit and fire to be empowered, enabled, embodied to conquer, and make ourself READY, as a pure bride betrothed to her One Husband (2 Corinthians 11:2), the King of kings and Lord of lords, the Word and the Spirit of God; called and chosen and faithful to the Lamb of God, the Lord of lords and King of kings (Revelation 17:14); not harmed by what is coming by the seal of God through the Holy Spirit through the finished work of the Cross;

“normal is not coming back, Jesus is” (not sure who I heard saying this)

“I betrothed you to Christ to present you as a pure bride to her One Husband” 2 Corinthians 11:2b RSV

“Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
and his Bride has made herself ready” Revelation 19:7

Then the kingdom of heaven shall be compared to ten maidens who took their lamps and went to meet the BridegroomFive of them were foolish, and five were wise. For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them; but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. As the Bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. But at midnight there was a cry, ‘Behold, the Bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ Then all those maidens rose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise replied, ‘Perhaps there will not be enough for us and for you; go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.’ And while they went to buy, the Bridegroom came, and those who were READY went in with him to the marriage feast; and the Door was shut. Afterward the other maidens came also, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open to us.’ But he replied, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour” Matthew 25:1-13

The True Church is the pure Bride, made holy, blameless, irreproachable, spotless, without blemish or wrinkle or any such thing by the Bridegroom King of kings and Lord of lords, the Head of the one Body and one Spirit of God in Christ, Who sanctifies you wholly, spirit and soul and body; Who cleanses you from ALL unrighteousness in His Blood, Who washes you with pure Water of Life with the Word of God, nourishes and cherishes the Bride, makes two into one in Himself, joined to Himself, one Body and one Spirit, belonging to Christ with His Spirit and fire of His Glory, His Light, in His Love; in Christ in Peace; Joy in the Holy Spirit; knowing the Love of Christ beyond knowledge, filled with ALL the fullness of God; come to FULLNESS of life in Christ in God.
