“The worthiness of My bride is to be seen upon her glory in presentation,
upon her grooming for the groom,
upon her steps forward made in time.
The worthiness of My bride is to be seen upon her steadfastness and purity,
upon her gallantry and honour,
upon her joy and exuberance of life.
The worthiness of My bride steps lightly over puddles,
knows the mire dwells at the bottom,
knows the stains arising from mistakes of judgment.
The worthiness of My bride reappraises and retains:
the building of her wardrobe with all its implications.
The worthiness of My bride exudes the qualities of youthful vigour,
exudes the anticipation of a body well-behaved,
exudes the confidence of knowledge arising from faith well-placed.
The worthiness of My bride is neither brittle nor ill-prepared,
is neither a nuisance nor an embarrassment,
is neither down-trodden nor shame-faced.
The worthiness of My bride is expected to be resplendent and to stand in confidence,
is ready to accompany as graceful and presentable,
is dressed to be a consort to a king.
The worthiness of My bride is to know the forms of greetings,
is to avoid the slips of tongue,
is to know the etiquette attendant on behaviour.
The worthiness of My bride is destined for a change of circumstances,
for a change in capabilities,
for a change in abilities of recognition.
The worthiness of My bride is destined for an upgrade of existence into the presence of the divine.
The worthiness of My bride is built upon existence within mortality.
For there is found the witness of the proving grounds.
For there is found the first encounter with the stepping stones to exaltation.
For there is found the crossroads at the turning points in need of negotiation.
For there is found that ‘discipleship’ receives a special meaning.
For there is found the greater of the destinies is embedded in the heart.
For there is found the soul’s first experience of the onset of the love inherent in the lands of angels.
The worthiness of My bride holds ready the excitement known to be in store,
holds ready the wonder of the scenes expected,
holds ready the amazement on a face when seen with understanding.
The worthiness of My bride is worth the effort of achieving,
is worth the polishing of the soul,
is worth the stepping up to the bounty of God,
is worth the level of preparation born of purity in the making,
born of purity for achieving,
born of establishing the treasure held in store beyond the fire.
The worthiness of My bride is not imparted through a careless walk,
through a stroll within a park,
through a day which sees no progress –
ending as it has begun.
The worthiness of My bride holds the keys to exhilaration for a skip within a step,
holds the keys to fortitude for overcoming,
holds the keys of perseverance for the pursuit of victory,
holds the keys rewarding with a garland which becomes a crown.”
