“The bride of Christ is not paying sufficient attention to her preparation,
is leaving it until she will find it is too late,
until she will find she is in a quandary –
at a loss as to what to do,
at a loss in sizing up her situation,
at a loss in goal setting to be queried for effectiveness,
at a loss in seeking guidance when it should have been in place,
at a loss in establishing a testimony for when it is required,
at a loss to find a clean gown for presentation at a ceremony.
The bride of Christ skims over what is awaiting her attention,
what is needed to surpass the standard for exaltation,
what is needed to judge assuredly in righteousness,
what is needed to administer the authority of Christ.
The bride of Christ must apply herself in earnestness,
must place it at the forefront of endeavour,
must seek and find and use the giftings of The Holy Spirit,
must seek and find and practice for fluency in the tongues the angels think and hear,
the tongues heard instantaneously in the realms of heaven –
without the movement of the tongue,
as issued forth in mortality from the vocal chords of man.
The bride of Christ will use the power of thought which transcends the power of speech,
which transfers understanding faster than a lightning flash,
which transmits in the culture of heaven in which the spirit and the soul expect
The bride of Christ should be earnest in her preparation,
should be earnest in her application,
should be excited about her progress to her goal.
The bride of Christ will be sorted from those candidates found wanting:
who did not avail themselves to act in wisdom,
who cavorted when sincerity was missing,
who bandied about the truth both partially and in the shades of grey,
who joked at the expense of others,
who led the gullible astray without due cause,
who fail to qualify as followers of Jesus because their faith is empty with the fruit nowhere
to be seen.
The bride of Christ has a future of great promise;
is the reward of Christ bestowed upon His followers:
is available to all who would know and walk the pathway of discipleship;
is assured for those who keep in holding sacred the two commandments of The Lord –
both in the spirit and in practice;
is not in jeopardy for those who persevere in overcoming that which,
is missing in intensity,
is neither hot nor cold,
in their taskings from The Lord.
The bride of Christ is not selected as if a lottery as kept by man,
is not subject to uncertain whims,
is not prejudiced by unstated particularities,
is not subject to imposed disqualifications.
The bride of Christ can self-disqualify when faith is on the wane,
when the fear of God is not sustained,
when taskings are delayed by a care-free attitude,
when sin exists without a covering of grace,
when a soul becomes lacking in integrity and righteousness departs.
The bride of Christ requires the immediacy of the existence of a relationship with God,
a willingness to comply to the standards set by God,
a commitment to the Lord in fulfilling all righteousness
as He exampled at the commencing of His ministry,
an active fear of God in all its scope of praise,
within the sacred things of God.
The bride of Christ comprises the arrows which The Rider of the white horse looses from His bow with the message
of eternity bound ready for each waiting heart.
The bride of Christ should be prepared for readily accepting the being loosed,
in impaling the arms* of the messenger and the master,
for delivering the tokens for the hearts from The King of kings.
The bride of Christ flies true and straight;
flies accurately to each tasking;
delivers the word of God in boldness –
with clarity both in thought and of intent.”
