My beloved child…It is My purpose that you pattern yourself after the likeness of My Divine Son Jesus… blameless and guileless, innocent and uncontaminated, a child of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and wicked generation, among whom you shine like a star in the universe! [Father God…Phil 2:14-15]

Greatly beloved child…long ago, even before I made the world, I chose you to be My very Own through what Christ My Son would do for you.  I decided then to make you holy and blameless in My sight, without a single fault…you who stand before Me covered with My love.  **        **, in accordance with My great Love for you, My eternal unchanging plan has always been to adopt you into My Own Family by bringing you to Myself through the sacrificial death of My Divine Son Jesus.  This is what I had always purposed to do, and it gave Me great pleasure to do so! [Eph 1:4-5]

Abba Father…I praise God for the glorious grace You have poured out on us who belong to Your dear Son, in Whom I am accepted in the Beloved!  Lord God Almighty, You are so rich in kindness and grace toward me that You purchased my freedom with the Blood of Christ Your Son and forgave all my sins.  Even more, You have showered down upon me the richness of Your grace…for how well You understand me and know what is best for me at all times! [Eph 1:6-8]

Precious child…this is My purpose: in accordance with My eternal plan, at the right time I will bring all Creation together under the authority of My Divine Son Jesus…everything in Heaven and on Earth…and will gather all My Own children to be forever together with Me in Christ Jesus My Son.  Furthermore…because you have freely given yourself to be joined together in the living union of oneness of divine marriage as the bride of Christ My Son [], you have thereby received an inheritance from God, for I chose you from the beginning to be My child…and I work out everything in agreement with the counsel and design of My Own Sovereign will.  My Holy Spirit’s Presence within you is My guarantee that I will indeed give you the inheritance I promised.  And the Spirit’s seal upon you means that I have already purchased you as My Own child, and that I have guaranteed to bring you to Myself! [Father God…Eph 1:9-11;14]

Abba Father…thank You for Personally taking me by the hand and leading me into Your inner circle…the Holy of Holies.  I am here solely and only because of Your boundless Mercy, Your infinite Grace, Your Unconditional Love.  You gave Your Divine Son Jesus to become the sacrificial Lamb of God, Who came into this world to become the One only all-sufficient atoning sacrifice through His death on a cross and subsequent resurrection, thereby securing forgiveness for my sins and restoring my relationship with God that had been severed by my sins.  On that momentous day when I earnestly made a solemn vow before God in giving myself to be the bride of Christ Your Son, receiving Jesus the Christ into my life in divine marriage, promising to honor and obey Him as both Lord over my life and Savior of my soul…You granted me the right to become born into the Family of God as Your child…a child of the Most High God!  And then You dressed me in the appropriate wedding garment…the white robes of His Own Righteousness, enabling me to be worthy to be seated here at Your banqueting table!  Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: “Hallelujah!  For our Lord God Almighty reigns.  Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory!  For the wedding of the Lamb at last has come, and His bride has made herself ready.  Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.”  (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints) [Rev 19:6-8]

Even so…no one can attend the marriage feast of the Lamb without being dressed in the appropriate wedding garment…the white robes of the Righteousness of Christ.  Then the king said to his servants, “The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come.  Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.”  So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.  But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing a wedding garment.  “Friend,” he asked, “How did you come in here without putting on the appropriate wedding garment?” The man was speechless.  Then the king told the attendants, “Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are invited and summoned, but few are chosen.” [Matt 22:8-14]

Abba Father…You have given me fine, radiant linen to wear…dazzling and white…which are the good deeds and righteous acts Your Holy Spirit has done through me, as I have given Him free reign to do so, that my light may so shine before the souls of men that they would see, as in a mirror of the Almighty, the God-ordained origin of the praiseworthy and noble deeds, righteous acts, and moral excellence continually being wrought in me by Your Holy Spirit, and thereby recognize, honor, praise and glorify You, Father, in Heaven. [Matt 5:16]  Then the angel said to me, “Write this down: Blessed are those summoned to the marriage banquet of the Lamb…all true believers who are members of His Universal Church.  They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with Power and great Glory.  And He will send His angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect…God’s holy people…from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.”  And he said to me further, “These are the True Words of God.” [Mt 24:30-31; Rev 19:9]

Blessed Jesus…I rejoice and shout triumphantly for joy!  I celebrate and ascribe to You glory and honor, for the marriage of the Lamb draws near, and Your bride, the Universal Church and each of her members, has been preparing herself and has made herself ready!  Hallelujah!
