For Christ’s second coming the Body must be built up and the Bride prepared. It is with His Bride, the overcomers, that Christ will return to crush the ten toes of the great human image. In order for the Bride to be ready, she must be mature and the only way for her to reach maturity is for us to daily grow and be transformed. Lord, transform us! Grow in us! Cause us together to become Your built up Body and Your prepared Bride!
We are blessed to be those who are hastening the Lord’s return. When Christ came the first time He terminated the old creation and produced the new creation. When Christ comes back the second time He will defeat human government and set up His kingdom on the earth. Many believers are asking; why is He waiting? The Scriptures tell us that Christ will come back when the Church as His Bride is prepared.
Today, in a mysterious way Christ is working in the Church to prepare His Bride. The Church as the Bride of Christ needs to be prepared to match Him through the growth in life. Almost 2000 years ago, the new creation was produced. Now this new creation is being transformed and brought onto maturity. When the Bride has reached maturity, Christ will come back. Then there will be the marriage dinner of the Lamb followed by the treading of the great wine press where Antichrist and his army will be defeated.
The Lord’s recovery is for the preparation of the Bride. This Bride refers to the overcomers. Thus, “the readiness of the Bride depends upon the maturity of the overcomers. Furthermore, the overcomers are not separate individuals but a corporate bride. For this aspect, building is needed. The overcomers not only are mature in life but also are built together as one bride.”
Lord Jesus, I don’t know when it will be and how soon the third temple will begin to be rebuilt, but I pray that You grow in me each day and build me up with the saints for Your return.
” As our Redeemer, He terminated the old creation by His crucifixion. As the One in resurrection, He has germinated the new creation, and today He is working within us as His new creation. He is also our Companion in the burning furnace (Dan. 3). As such a wonderful One, He is preparing everything for His coming back to exercise His dominion over the whole earth.”
Thank you Lord that You are preparing everything for Your coming back. Thank you Lord You will exercise Your dominion over the whole earth!
By working in the church in a mysterious way and by administrating the kingdoms of the world, Christ is preparing everything for His coming back to exercise His dominion on earth! We need to be those who take Christ as our centrality and universality, so that He can be the centrality and universality in God’s economy and in God’s move!
Lord, make us those who cooperate to bring You back! Come Lord Jesus!
