Day 13 was for Monday, the last day of the series. Not sure if I had said in the beginning, if not sorry about that if anyone was wondering how long this one gose for.
Picture a wedding, now I am not married or ever have been. I don't know what that would or is like to be a bride, I can't really explain things like this that well, but I can understand abit. I have been to 2 weddings in my life seeing a wedding happen, or seen on TV, but I'm sure there's a big difference in watching a wedding and someone actually getting married. In the Bible it mentions and some books talks about abit more that we are the bride of Christ. Meaning the Church, such as the Christians.Those that have accepted Jesus and are truely seeking, walking, talking, praising, worshiping, loving Him dailey have this relationship with the Lord and Saviour will be able to meet and be with Him in heaven.
Let's take a look and see what they are saying about being the bride of Christ.
5 Your children will commit themselves to you, O Jerusalem,
just as a young man commits himself to his bride.
Then God will rejoice over you
as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride.
Psalm 45 is a wedding song and it tells the story of the king's wedding; therefore, this celebration is the wedding of all weddings. Psalm 45 is a prophecy about the coming of our groom, King Jesus. It paints a picture of King Jesus preparing a place for His bride, the Church, and then coming back to take her to His Fathers house.
In His first coming, Jesus betrothed every believer to Him on the cross of Calvary. He told everyone who belongs to Him: I love you. I died for you. I have chosen you and have paid the heaviest dowry that could be paid with my own precious blood. I am betrothing you to myself and am committed to you. I will take you to my Father's house.
For those who are part of the bride of Christ, soonwhether we go to Him first or He comes back to us firstwe will hear those words, "Welcome home. I have been preparing my Father's house for you. I loved you with everlasting love. I have shown you my love on the cross; now you can see it fully. Come inherit your Father's kingdom. I know that you have waited longingly for me, but the wait is over. Now enter into my Father's glory."
Prayer: Father, thank You for that you chose me and I have become a part of the bride of Christ. Thank You for the inheritance that awaits me. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
"As a young man marries a maiden, so will your sons marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you" (Isaiah 62:5).
I havn't tried this but I believe it works, If you take your bible, one that will lay flat on the tablee. Take 2 pages and have them meet in the middle/center of your bible. Tuck them nicely in, stand back and look eye level to the table and you'll notice something awesome! Also take a ring and place it in the the open bible in the middle in the crease. shine some light that it will cast a shadow. See what you get there!
