Revelation 21:9 “And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife”
Many have forgotten Bridal Etiquette. When you come into the presence of another believer there should be a witness in your spirit and a sense of awe that you are with your beloved whom you love more than yourself and to whom you have given your very life for. She is not a building or a denomination. She is a new creation, a spiritual house not made with hands that is hidden with Christ in God as His life is being fully formed in her. Do you see with eyes of love what she is becoming? This Love bears all things and believes all things are possible. This love for the Bride is patient and kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not ever dishonor her, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. It does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth of who she is becoming. It always protects her, it always trusts her, it always hopes in her and always perseveres on her behalf. This Love for the Bride never fails. You should never ask this Bride “where she goes to church” because “She Is The Church”, in all her “spotless glory and spiritual splendor”. She is everything a Father could want as a companion for His Son. She should take your breath away every time you see her. How should you communicate with your Bride? You should Speak to her with wisdom from above. Your words should be pure, then peace-loving, gentle, compliant, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering and without pretense. As Jesus instructed you should wash her feet in preparation for that day which is fast approaching. Cover her measure with love until she comes to full maturity. Adorn her with “fine linen” and make her ready for marriage supper of the Lamb.
