Article 16 of 27 in the Series...
Author: Martha Kilpatrick
A grave deception lies dormant like a sleeping sickness in the theology of the
church . . . an error with eternal consequences and unutterable loss. The error is this: that all believers, all born again Christians will be at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Christ's own words refute this. The Bride of Christ must meet specific requirements. His parables make such clear illustration of this, it is a marvel there can be such a serious mistaking of His teaching. Salvation is ever free. A gift. Unmerited and unearned by any effort or will. There is no work to be born again, only that of the work of Christ . . . but the Bride, that is another matter.

I Corinthians 6:2a-3 Amplified Bible
Do you not know that the saints (the believers)
will one day judge and govern the world?
Do you not know also that we (Christians)
are to judge the (very) angels and pronounce
opinion between right and wrong for them?
How much more then (as to) matters
pertaining to this world and of this life only!
Revelation 2:26 NIV
To him who overcomes and does my will to the
end, I will give authority over the nations -
Revelation 3:21 NIV
To him who overcomes, I will give the right to
sit with Me on my throne, just as I overcame
and sat down with my Father on HIS throne.
The intense preparation of the Bride is pictured in
Ruth, Esther, Daniel, Joseph - on and on in scripture.
That equipping is not merely for Wifehood with the Lamb
but her training to actually
rule and reign by His side . . .
The promises of the Lord to the church are
real and certain. Clear and simple.
The Bride will bear authority over
the very world.
The Wedding Feast is the culmination
of human history and the finale of Christianity
but it is the beginning of
a new world and
a new government
where Christ is Visible King.
From the Wedding of the Lamb,
will step onto the throne to rule . . .
beside her Beloved, her personal King
whose heart she has come to know.
Our amazing future
and present aim.
