Our vision is that our Lord Jesus Christ will “present to Himself a glorious church, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless (Ephesians 5:27).”
We believe the bride of Christ will be dressed in the beauty of holiness for her Bridegroom Lord Jesus when He returns. “And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband (Revelation 21:2).” The secret of how the body of Christ will be transformed into Christ’s glorious bride is hidden in the mystery of cross. This is what the apostle Paul also called the mystery of the gospel (Christ died for us and included us in His death so He might sovereignly live in us).
We believe God will reveal the power of Christ’s death on the cross to the church in the coming tribulation of these last days. This is why we are devoted to proclaiming and explaining the gospel of Christ crucified. We believe the body of Christ will need divine revelation concerning the power of Christ’s crucifixion to walk in the power of Christ’s resurrection and overcome Satan when the hour of darkness covers the earth. At that time, Christ will unveil His bride in triumph and she will shine like gold refined in a crucible for she will not love her own life even when faced with death!
At the climax of this conflict of the age, our Lord Jesus will descend from heaven in power and glory with His heavenly army of mighty angels and His holy bride to crush the enemy and judge the world. And His bride will then sit with her Divine Lover and Lord – the Lamb of God and Lion of Judah – to rule the nations. “Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns. 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 (Revelation 19:6-7).”
We believe our Lord Jesus has called many of you now reading this to be His overcoming bride. We pray your hearts will be set on fire by the glorious eternal gospel of our Bridegroom Jesus Christ so that you might hold high the victory banner of His cross and overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony. “And they sang a new song, ‘You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because You were slain, and with Your blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom of priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth (Revelation 5:9-10).’” Amen. Come soon, our Lord Jesus!
