1-27-16 – The Filthy Bride with the Dirty, Wrinkled Dress

Revelation 2:8-11 –

“And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write:
The first and the last, who was dead,
and has come to life, says this:
‘I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich),

AND THE BLASPHEMY BY THOSE WHO SAY THEY ARE JEWS
AND ARE NOT, BUT ARE A SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN.

Do not fear what you are about to suffer.
Behold, the devil is about to cast some of you into prison,
so that you will be tested,
and you will have tribulation for ten days.
Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.
He who has an ear,
let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
He who overcomes will not be hurt by the second death.’

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Matthew 10:21-22 –

Brother will betray brother to death,
and a father his child;
and children will rise up against parents
and cause them to be put to death.
You will be hated by all because of My name,
but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved.”

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Zechariah 13:8-9 –

“It will come about in all the land,” Declares the LORD,
“That two parts in it will be cut off and perish;
But the third will be left in it.
And I will bring the third part through the fire,
Refine them as silver is refined,
And test them as gold is tested.
They will call on My name,
And I will answer them; I will say,
‘They are My people,’
And they will say, ‘The LORD is my God.'”

THE FILTHY BRIDE WITH THE DIRTY WRINKLED DRESS” . . .

That, my friends, is the picture of MOST of the professing Body of Christ right now and may also include ourselves, IF we continue holding onto unforgiveness, “hidden sin”, PRIDE, self-centeredness or anything else that is UNHOLY. . . . . SINFUL.

Mud bride

IF Jesus came back today . . . . MOST in the Western World would not be ready for Him.

Mud bride
MOST are caught up in self-centered lives, thinking “persecution” is when people say mean stuff about us or to us.

While no, that’s not pleasant, it’s NOT the level of persecution we are seeing in the Middle East, N. Korea and other Countries where the Governments are Anti-Christ . . . AGAINST JESUS. . .AND people are being slaughtered, raped, kidnapped, tortured, sold into slavery, beheaded, burned alive, blown up, buried alive . . . PERSECUTED FOR THEIR FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST!!!

Persecution

 

GUESS WHAT?

GOVERNMENTS AGAINST JESUS CHRIST . . . . That’s just about everywhere right now, but has not fully manifested in “The Western Nations” . . . YET, but it’s coming.

Persecuted

 

EXPECT PERSECUTION, MY FRIENDS!!!!!

AND . . . It is going to come through those who PROFESS to be “Christians” but they are not.

 

 

PERSECUTION will also come through demonized governments, Islam, EVEN FAMILY MEMBERS AND “FRIENDS” and ANY who are not fully following JESUS.

WE WILL BE HATED FOR LOVING JESUS AND FOLLOWING HIM.

Persecuted

 

WHY DOES AND WHY WILL THE HEAVENLY FATHER ALLOW PERSECUTION?

Baby question

 

Because we are NOT ready for the return of the LORD Jesus. We STILL have some more “Refiner’s Fire” to go through.

Refiner's fire

 

More “TESTING” to see if we TRULY, TRULY LOVE THE LORD JESUS . . . Yes, even more than our very lives.

NO, this is not a “pleasant” message, but it’s a part of

“THE BRIDE GETTING READY”.  Because Jesus is coming back for a bride without spot or wrinkle (Ephesians 25:27).

Bride

 

JESUS TOLD US TO “ENDURE UNTIL THE END” (Matthew 24:13). This is pointing to some VERY DIFFICULT times that we must ALL face, unless we are taken home prior to the return of the LORD Jesus.

Grief

 

SO, we truly need to DAILY check ourselves to be absolutely sure we are walking in a CLEAN relationship with the LORD.

Spiritual checkup

 

Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal ANYTHING that is unholy . . Unpleasing to Him and REPENT when we are shown areas that we must STOP DOING WHAT HE SAYS TO STOP DOING!!! AND rebuke any demonic forces that try to come against you.

Repent

 

WE MUST FORGIVE ALL WHO HAVE SINNED AGAINST US.

Forgive

FOLLOW THE LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Holy Spirit

 

DAILY READ THE BIBLE.

Bible


DAILY PRAY IN THE SPIRIT AND WITH UNDERSTANDING.

Pray

 

DAILY WORSHIP THE LORD FOR HE IS WORTHY TO BE PRAISED.

Worship

 

THE DAY IS COMING . . . AND SUDDENLY . . . WHEN JESUS WILL RETURN . . . . ARE YOU READY?

Jesus

Revelation 19:7-9 –

“Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come
and His bride has made herself ready.”
It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen,
bright and clean;
for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
Then he *said to me, “Write,
‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’”

    1. Thanks for the link, Linda.
      I checked it out. There are a variety of people interviewed there. I recognized the voice of Glenda Jackson (Maria Woodworth Etter’s great-niece) and Alex Jones. I didn’t listen to the whole thing, but skipped around, ’cause I wanted to get to Bette’s part. (Total link time= 3hours)

      Bette comes on about the 1:34:00 mark. She ends at the end (about 3:00:00). There’s a really nice song at the end. I’m not sure what the title is, but it goes “Thank you for the Cross, Lord…..[Refrain part]- Worthy is the Lamb……”

      Bette mentioned her trips to hell in several places. I listened to her entire interview. It was very good.

  1. Well on this post if not for Jesus each and every male on earth would be doomed, like this.

    28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

    And adultery is a capital sin in Gods eyes.
    Thanks to Jesus we have a defense attorney that can nullify the constitution and give us liberty instead of death.

    No questions asked not only brides are filthy also grooms or husbands.

        Seriously, you both bring so much to Linda’s blog. My life is truly enriched from meeting all the wonderful people on here and the truthful, clean interaction that goes on.

        Peggy may you quickly and efficiently proceed with your wedding plans. Stig-ove, may you keep those children in line and continue raising them in the fear and admonition of the Lord. May they also be a tremendous blessing to you.

        Linda, may you continue in Godly wisdom and truth. May the Lord continue to strengthen you for the tasks set before you. And, may anyone else reading this have an incredible day with the Lord, being instantly obedient to what the Holy Spirit leads you to do. Pray, as Bette says, “Memorize the Word”, seek only His face and be strong.

        Blessings to you all, love you so much, have to go take care of business. ❤ ❤ ❤ 🙂

  4. My Pastor told our church last year that the Lord said to her, “My bride is dirty.”

    Also, she mentioned HIM SAYING to the CONGREGATION when teaching on Jesus raising Lazarus from the tomb: “It’s time to take off the grave clothes.”

    Perhaps that refers to increased use of the Prayer Language and operating more and more fully in the Spiritual Gifts which He has given to each one……more time with HIM, etc.

    Goodness, we can’t just be walking around in grave clothes—- we’ll look too much like the zombies.

      To help the Bride of Christ get ready. . . This is my “job” as long as the LORD wills and directs. BUT I also know the day is approaching when however a person is “ready” that is it, because you can’t “get ready” in the midst of a turmoil . . You have to be already prepared.

      1. Linda,
        In echoing your statement above about not being able to get ready in the midst of turmoil:

        I believe there’s a verse in Proverbs that says, “As the tree falls, there shall it lie.”
        Also, as my friend says, “You can’t learn to swim when the Titanic is sinking.”

    2. Roflcgu, oh Stig-ov, you crack me up. It is doggies (referring to cattle) not donkeys. You just insulted every cowboy I know lol. I actually loved that show, but you have to get that CRACK of the whip in there to make it sound right. Not sure how I can type that sound that it won’t reduce everyone to tears . I agree anyway we are sheep. I heard someone say once that God refers to us as sheep because sheep are DUMB.

      Ok, I will stop before I get myself in trouble.

  6. My precious brothers and sisters, the King has directed me to post this.

    This morning I flushed my toilet and there was this loud bang. The water went down but with agitation and noise, like there was air in the pipes (a LOT of air!)

    I returned to my prayer and sat quietly with the Lord, softly praying in tongues and I “saw” and “heard” this:

    “the world’s economy will flush into the sewer (I could see millions and millions of coins pouring into this circular drain and disappearing.) The noise of this will be profound and disturbing to those who put their trust in their money. Tell my children that they will be provided for.”

    Wow. That’s all there was.

    We are blessed, beloved brothers and sisters, to hide beneath His wings!

      1. My wife said she had a dream once of our house being surrounded by growing wheat or corn stalks and she also has had dreams of lions roaming around our house and a staircase going to heaven at our backyard.

        She has had these dreams in the span of 2 years we lived in our current house.

        Brings to mind the parabel of the wheat field about harvest ready and few workmen to gather it.
        Maybe someone else had similar dreams?

        1. VERY interesting dreams, Stig-Ove. What comes to mind is a book I read years ago and found the YouTube reading of it: “The Heavens Opened” by Anna Roundtree. Maybe consider listening to this with your wife and see if it brings more understanding to you both. It’s long (over 3 hours), but you could have it on while playing with the kids.
