Are You Making Yourself Ready?

I am jealous for you with the jealousy of God himself. For I promised you as a pure bride to one husband, Christ.
2 Corinthians 11:2
Let us be glad and rejoice and honor him. For the time has come for the wedding feast of the Lamb, and his bride has prepared herself.
Revelation 19:7
And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a beautiful bride prepared for her husband.
Revelation 21:2
(NLT)


Have you forgotten that you are My bride? Instead of making yourself ready you go out and play in the world forgetting to be careful to keep yourself separate. So your bridal clothes becomes dirty, torn and ragged. You walk around trying to be like them, and in your dirty clothes you forget Me.

You keep running around looking for where you belong, you keep trying to find love and acceptance. You forget you have an enemy that tells you that you are no longer worthy and your bridal clothes have been destroyed beyond repair.

My love for you is far greater and wider than you can ever imagine. Come to me my bride and I will give you new a new bridal dress. I will wash you whiter than snow. Stay with me and you will see that my love for you is never changing. My love for you is the same today as it was yesterday and it will still be there tomorrow. You will never have more or less of my love than you have right now.

You have ALL my love. So why do you continue to look to things and people. You continue to prostitute yourself to the world. You runs after your lovers.

My bride I will not force you, but I will win you back once again. I will lead you out into the desert and speak to you tenderly there. It will be in the dry and pain of the desert that you will give yourself to me as you did long ago. It will be then that you will come to see me as your beloved groom to whom you were promised.

I will make you my wife forever, showing you righteousness and justice, unfailing love and compassion.I will be faithful to you and make you mine, and you will finally know me as your Beloved Groom. I will show love to you and then I will say, Now you are my bride. Then you will reply, You are my Groom.

Oh come away with me my bride, let me love you. Make yourself ready for the marriage feast of your precious Lamb.

  5. Blessings Sharon...3 scripture passages and a powerful message leading up to the Love Song
    ...absolutely powerful & shared so well!
    YES LORD...
    "I want to fall in love with You"

    It seems too easy to call you "Savior",
    Not close enough to call you "God"
    So as I sit and think of words I can mention to show my devotion.

    For me, each name of God demonstrated through Jesus & His life tells me that I must prepare myself much better as His Bride!
    You are so right that we act like people of the world not called out of the world as special & chosen!

    Thank you for this sweet reminder of how great is His Love & how I should be pure & cleansed & ready for His return! May Our Lord continue to draw you closer to Him
    as you shine His Light in this world.

  9. I couldn't view the video/song, but you certainly hear God's word calling to your inner self. Thank you always for sharing with all of us. I don't always leave a note-but I should.

    I would like to get to know you better and wanted to know if you would like to answer the questions that Bobbie sent to me at my blog
    www.woundedlily.wordpress.com

    It is a treasure and a pleasure seeing how God is using you to reach others with your gift of writing and inspiration.
