The Apocalyptic Bride

Friday, June 2, 2023

What do you think of when you hear the word "apocalyptic?" Most people think of the end of the world, calamity and doom. There's truth to that picture. But if you're born again, it's a whole different issue. In the Hebrew marriage, during the supper, the bride and groom would slip away to the marriage chamber where the bride would "unveil." In Greek apokalupsis means: an unveiling, uncovering, revealing or revelation. So for us, the bride, the apocalypse is very different. It's when the bride removes her veil and the two become one. The future for you in the Lord is to be looked forward to, not feared. Apocalyptic means; meeting Him, removing our veil, shining as the bride. There are two outcomes, the apocalypse of judgment and the apocalypse of an unveiling wedding celebration. As His Bride, look at the future with joy, preparing yourself to become beautiful. As it's written, "We with unveiled face, beholding Him." It's apocalyptically good, so rejoice over what's to come and live your life with hope and expectation for the apocalypse of the bride and the bridegroom.

From Message #405 - The Sound of the Bridegroom

Today's Mission

Take time today to slip away to be alone with your Beloved. Just you and Him. Spend time in His presence with no veils. Don't be afraid of what's to come.

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 2:9
