Pure Bride

Pastor Steve TaylorFasting 2017

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house
are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where
I am, there you may be also.
John 14:1-3 NKJV
3 Everyone who has this hope in Christ keeps himself pure, just as Christ is pure.
1 John 3:3 GNT
For I am jealous for you with the jealousy of God Himself.
I promised you as a pure bride to one husband–Christ.
2 Corinthians 11:2 NLT
As a Bride prepares for her wedding day, you too need to ready yourself for your
“Spiritual Wedding Day” with the groom, Jesus Christ. Live your whole life in
preparation for the return of Christ.
Esther spent a whole year in preparation before she spent one day with the King (Esther
2:12). May you continue the journey into the heart of God and allow the Holy Spirit to
purify you and keep you pure in preparation to spend an eternity with the King of kings
and the Lord of lords.
And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another,
especially now that the day of His return is drawing near.
Hebrews 10:25 NLT
Prayer Focus: If you had a special conformation from God Himself that Jesus would come for
His Bride, the Church before the end of this year, how would you prepare? What would you stop
doing? What would you start doing? How would you encourage others to prepare? How do you
know He won’t return this year? Selah!
