All across the globe, my Bride is making herself ready. You are my Bride. You are dressed in white linen, pure and spotless and without wrinkle. I have adorned you with jewels, and lavished the fragrances of heaven upon you. You are fearless, uncompromising, full of faith and faithfulness. You are radiant with my light, and when you speak the earth listens.
You are my Bride. I am your passion. Arise, come away with me.
So speak tenderly and kindly to me today; share your love with me and open your heart to my love. Yield to me. Let me be your Beloved.
2 Corinthians 11:2
For I am zealous for you with a godly eagerness and a divine jealousy, for I have betrothed you to one Husband, to present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
Ephesians 5:25b -27
. . . just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her to make her holy, cleansing her with the washing of water by the word. He did this to present the church to Himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or anything like that, but holy and blameless.
