Vision of the Amazing Glorious Bride of Christ

Bride2

I was driving with my 10-year-old, listening to her sing a country music song. Then I heard the Lord saying, “I wish My church loved Me this much.”

As I heard this, I got a glimpse of God’s glorious Bride.

She was wearing a white, gleaming wedding gown, which emitted a golden glow.

She was singularly focused on Jesus Christ. Her one thing was sitting quietly at His feet like Mary loving her Master (Luke 10:39), her Lord, and her closest friend. She was in communion with Him and yearned for unity with His holy purpose.

She was caught up to heaven again and again, enraptured by the upward call of Christ. I clearly saw she was amazed with God. She did not have much time to devote to darkness. The way I understood it was like this, “Darkness is like taking out the trash. We do it daily, less than 1% of the time. The other 99% of the time is worship, enjoyment, obedience, and secrets with God.”

She only wanted unity with God, no lukewarm love, no double-mindedness. She was not seeking mammon or fame. She was not seeking God as a means to gaining the world, which is the mixed message of our time. She sought nothing for herself. She had no “horse in the race.” She only wanted to be famous in His eyes. This caused her to be set apart from the rest of “normal Sunday Christianity”.

She was a TRUE worshipper of God, totally caught up in His purpose, His presence, His values, His glory, His love and His light with no regard for what she looked like in the eyes of the world (Babylon) because she was so overcome by her Beloved King of Glory- Jesus Christ. She adored Him and spent much time loving Him until she became exactly what she beheld in Him, changed by His glory (2 Corinthians 3:18), taking on His appearance because of her obsession with Him, daily living for His glorious appearing (Titus 2:13).

I saw her daily embrace of His mercy, love, and grace brought healing to her soul. She wasted little time in self-pity or disappointment. She healed quickly because she did not sulk in her frequent mistakes. I saw this very clearly – her quickness to forget her failures and embrace Jesus’ victory made her so happy and healed!!

In modern Christianity, many churches preach Christ as an “addition” to their lives with no lifestyle change required. They like the social benefits of Christianity, but they quickly back peddle at the offensive “skandalizo” side of Christianity. In contrast, the Bride gladly embraces every part of sacred Scripture.

She paid a high price to leave the Babylonian system. She obeyed His command, “Come out of her and be separate” (Revelation 18:4). Her rejection and misunderstanding only served to refine her to the highest place of revelation and understanding.

I saw her above the earth, above every trial, insult and false accusation. These were taking her closer to God and Heaven. She had reached a point that everything worked for her good because she truly loved Christ Jesus (Romans 8:28). And she was happy about this, filled with the joy of God. These things actually fueled her life, her message and her destiny.

She had a gentleness about her because she always remembered her debt of sin, which her Beloved forgave. “Those who are forgiven much, love much.”

She walked in great grace, which gave her power to resist the corruption and compromise all around. God empowered her daily to remain loyal and loving, yet firm against common temptations. She was so tempted with Heaven, the earth stopped pulling her down. This was God’s true grace, not embittered nor compromised.

By His grace she claimed, “He loves me, perfects me, and maintains me. Therefore, I give Him my all, daily.”

31 For this reason A man shall leave his father and mother and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.
32 This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church. (Ephesians 5:31-32)

She learned to cooperate with His leadership without any resistance, without grieving.  She was quick to admit her weakness in order to be overshadowed by His. She matured to a view of grace that was daily walking with Him and unselfishly giving of herself to others.

By His grace she ruled on earth with righteous decrees spoken in true humility, prophetic declarations from her love for God (Song of Solomon), speaking the same words as Jesus. She had no other script to follow!

I saw her as the womb of God’s purpose because she gave birth to His purpose on earth. He chose her to be His body, to manifest His purpose through her. From the beginning He planned for His bride to carry the womb of His purpose, like ancient Israel did before. Somehow the two will merge together as one at the end, under the headship of Christ.

Finally, I saw her become like Heaven. I could see her golden heart. I saw parts of her heart and mind, like Jesus’ flesh after His  resurrection. There was nothing hidden, everything was revealed. The river of heaven seemed to flow from her beating heart, beating with the same rhythm, even the same color, which was crystal clear, translucent, totally transparent, unlike anything or anyone on earth.

newjerusalem

Nothing interested her except redeeming the world and bringing in the New Jerusalem. She was with the New Jerusalem, they moved as one, with no division or disunity. Her steps were synchronized with the steps of Christ, always moving in accord with Heaven.

10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,
11 having the glory of God. Her brilliance was like a very costly stone, as a stone of crystal- clear jasper. (Revelation 21:10-11)

No eye, no ear, no mind has know what God has prepared for those who truly love Him. This is the destiny of God’s beloved Bride.

“Not by might nor by power, but My Spirit, says God” (Zechariah 4:6-7)

“With shouts of Grace Grace to His glory.”

My apologies to everyone if I have hijacked this thread. However, there are many of us here, myself included that are so eager and willing to listen to Jesus words that at times we find ourselves baffled about what information we have already received from our Lord and may even doubt it. Nevertheless, we are inclined to endlessly speculate about what it means! My post here is a message that we must primarily study His precious words found in the infallible Word of God. Then when we receive “words of wisdom or knowledge”, (that is, words Jesus speaks to us individually), we must believe them, but only after they have been validated in the Word. Jesus’ words can sometimes be very challenging to us Christians when the Word might seem silent on some issues, like financial markets. God’s words can challenge our intellect or even common sense. The above passage is a very good example regarding Christ’s own words about His blood. I have even teased others about living on a sphere or a flat earth! Point being, trust the scriptures to reveal the truth, not NASA or the US goober mint. My challenge to my friends (of Z3News) is to respond properly by trusting in HIs revealed words (Holy Scriptures) and simply believe them. When words of knowledge come to us individually, then we should find comfort in those words and act as He desires – in faith. At times the prophecies are truly frightening! But still, believe every word found in scripture FIRST and then check these comforting words of knowledge (or scary prophecies) against the Bible to make sure we are hearing from Him and not some beguiling spirit. Lastly, those of you that are reading this, just simply ask Jesus himself what He means by His… Read more »

That particular scripture would stand out to me as the highest and most obvious example of what J.M. is referring to as a “Skandalizio” statement.

Where Yeshua is intentionally and apologetically offending the religious spirit of the Pharisee’s who know the Torah teaches against both the drinking of blood and the eating of Human flesh.

An interesting thing to me personally here is that Yeshua doe’s not reassure the Pharisee’s he is speaking in the presence of that he is speaking Metaphorically (and of course the Catholic church later uses this verse to support their “transubstination” doctrine concerning communion wafers and wine.

Every version of the bible I have read sounds as though Yeshua continued to allow the Pharisee’s to believe that he was speaking literally even though such a statement would be considered quite self condemning.

Interestingly Yeshua even states ” My body is true food and my blood is true drink”(John 6:55)
Of course we know that Yeshua is “the bread of Heaven” as well as the “living waters he offered the woman at the well.

A great example of “Offending the mind to reveal the heart” or “Skandilizio -even past the point of incriminating himself legally in their eyes according to their own understanding of the Torah.

You quoted it. Can you explain it?
Is the passage symbolic (or figures of speech) or literal? Which part is which?
I mean, is Blood symbolic and Life real or Blood real and Life symbolic?
I hold to that both are literal and real and everything is that passage is literally true. Blood of Christ is literal and real, My life in Christ is real not figurative or symbolic. Blood of Christ is real in the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. (not transubstantiation either, just mystical Real Presence, giving me real life). I’m not dead (anymore), I live in Christ. Christ taught it. I believe it.
Dean, what is your position?
peace

Thank you J.M. – Offending the mind to reveal the heart and the “difficult saying’s of Yeshua”.
The dichotomy of religion and relationship.
Though I sometimes meditate on these things, I had never known to apply the word Skandalizo.
Makes sense, and Thank so much for one of the most powerful and needed words I have read in a long time,It brings tears to my eyes and conviction to my heart every time I read it.
Bless you, And be Healed in the name of Yeshua.

I certainly comprehend the concept of a Stumbling block as it is one of Yeshua’s common expression’s of distate for the religious spirit.

My question was more in regard to the usage of the term in the context of Mr. Senim’s Vision/Word.

I have read this two or three times daily since it was posted,
And imagine many others have done the same and will continue to do so.
I will not comment as I could only diminish the beauty and heartfelt love it depicts for our Saviour.
Was not clear on this part ” but they quickly back peddle at the offensive “skandalizo” side of Christianity”
I looked up the word “skandalizo -stumbling block” – I think I’m still not grasping the full meaning.
Can someone clarify?
