John 17:23 I in them, and You in Me, so that they might be made perfected into one; so that the world knows that You have sent Me, and have loved them, as You have loved Me.
Revelation 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give Him praise, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife prepared herself.
Revelation 19:8 And to her was given to be dressed in fine linen, clean and bright; for the fine linen is the righteousness of the set-apart ones.
Revelation 19:9 And he said to me, Write, Blessed are those who have been called to the marriage supper of the Lamb! And He saith unto me, “These are the true words of Elohim .” Verse 8 is of particular importance; notice the bride is clothed in white linen which is the righteousness of the Set-apart ones. (saints) So what is righteousness?
Psalm 119:172 My tongue sings of Your Word for all your commands are righteousness. All His commandments are righteousness. The bride keeps the commandments and does not appear spiritually naked before Messiah, her husband. In verse 9 she is called to the marriage supper. Called, in the Greek means a personal invitation. Not everyone at this time has been called. Few people are willing to totally surrender to the will of their Creator.
Luke 21.33 The heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall by no means pass away.
Matthew 16:24 Then Messiah said to His taught ones, “If anyone wishes to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his stake, and follow me.
Matthew 16:25 For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake shall find it.
Matthew 16:26 For what is a man profited if he gains all the world, and looses his own life? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his life?
Matthew 16:27 For the son of Adam is going to come in the esteem of His Father with His messengers, and then He shall reward each according to his works.
People are too self-indulgent and self-centered rather than Yah-centered! Some may think this is unfair, but didn’t Messiah sacrifice everything for us? Are we not to walk as He walked?
I John 2:4 The one that says, I know Him, and does not guard His commands, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
All of this is the real reason we were created. It is still always a choice. It is a lifetime commitment, not just a one-time event! We are either part of the problem or part of the solution. Study, pray, meditate, fast, and ask for His calling. Ask Him to open your mind and change your heart.
