The Prepared Bride
One morning, the Holy Spirit opened my eyes to see into heaven. I saw the prepared Bride of Christ regally attired in a snow-white wedding gown adorned with a glistening gold crown. She was standing on the radiant sapphire floor directly in front of Heavenly Father’s throne, waiting for Father’s approval. As I watched this scene, Father expressed His endorsement by announcing, “My Son’s Bride is coming forth!”
At that moment, I understood the time for the last stages of the Bride’s preparation had arrived. The hour is late. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and prepare ourselves as the Bride for Christ’s return. We can’t put it off. We must do it now. As we face our purification, it will take all the strength we have to remain in Him. The Holy Spirit will empower us. Press into Him.
In light of this revelation, I initiated a conversation with the Trinity. A spiritual dialogue that ended up being an invitation to go deeper. Get ready for it. You’ll either accept the invitation or RSVP with unable to attend. Whichever you choose, you are loved to the bone.
Heartache Over His Bride
I asked, “What’s on your heart Jesus?”
“My Bride, she’s My heart’s desire. She is precious in My sight. I gave My life for her. She isn’t her own. My Bride belongs to Me. Before I return for her, she must be purified. She must be ready to meet Me. In preparation for the marriage supper of the Lamb, My Bride must have her wedding garment on.
I’m guiding you with insight for My Brides because they are hungry for the real. So, first, I will fill your mouth with My Words. Then, many will join you in being My prepared Bride because your heart shines as a beacon to them.”
Solution to the Bride’s Preparation
“I will purify My Bride with My refining fire. She must be adorned and arrayed with My glory. Like a mirror, she will reflect My image. Just as I endured My cross and overcame the world, so will she. My Bride will walk the path I walked.
Even though the enemy closes in on her to destroy her, she will stand firm by leaning on Me until the end. No matter what comes, I’ll enable her to stand against the enemy’s onslaught.
The days ahead will be rough. My heart aches over what she must endure. The battles will be fierce, but I know and see the result. She will be victorious and declare My glory around the world. My Bride will seek Me with all her heart.
Before My Bride comes home to be with Me forever, she will push forward by faith advancing Father’s Kingdom on earth!”
Holy Spirit Reveals His Concern
I asked Holy Spirit, “What’s on your heart this morning?”
“The task I have ahead of Me to prepare the Bride for the return of her Bridegroom. My job requires cooperation from each Bride. How will they open their hearts and put into practice what is required of them? Then, I will send you to sound the alarm!
As you write, you will cause them to long for an intimate relationship with Jesus. Because of this, many will come and join you as His Bride. Others will shake their heads and walk away the same—unchanged.”
Heavenly Father Unveils a Mystery
I asked, “What’s on your heart Father?”
“My Son’s Bride. She’s lost and doesn’t wear His righteousness but her own. Her heart doesn’t long for the return of her Bridegroom. Instead, she’s fastened to the things of this world.
My Son’s Bride must come up to speed. She is lagging by not keeping up with the leading of the Holy Spirit. Rather than charging ahead by faith, she cowers in fear. Shift her up to the level of faith she is called to walk in. She requires a redirect in her spirit, not in her intellect. Teach her how to be led by the Holy Spirit, not her head. Open her eyes to see spiritually.
The best is coming for My Son’s Bride.”
In the twinkling of an eye, I found myself in heaven. A brilliant bridal gown was now my attire. I looked down. Beneath my feet were the Fiery Stones. Heavenly Father was walking on the stones with me. He said, “I brought you here to develop intimacy with Me and to receive a deposit of My heart in you. This is where My Son’s Bride belongs. Walking on the Fiery Stones with Me.”
Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you in your preparation to walk with Father. Then follow His lead.
“The marriage of the Lamb to His Bride has commenced,
His Bride has prepared herself for this glorious day.”
