A Spotless Bride for the Groom
It takes time to see these things. That’s why when the Lord revealed these Gifts to you through a dream—I read about your dream in a book—I mean, it’s got to be the Lord’s timing and the Lord’s work. He’ll open the eyes. Like you said He’ll open the scrolls. It’s time—21st century. It’s time for the Lord to reveal the Church and how it should work. We are tired now of just having the right doctrine of the Church—now we’ve got it—but now it’s “how it works,” which is the most important thing. How can you have a beautiful car when the engine is not working perfectly? You know what I mean? “Ahh, it’s nice, sure. That’s my car.”
“Sure, but does it work properly?”
Yeah, what value is that? Like the beautiful house built on the sand. The foundation is wrong. It will not look beautiful for very long.
Yes. It’s exactly that. I think it is time for the Lord now. I think it is God’s time now that His vessels, which He has chosen, will have to be perfect. I believe it’s His time to really show the world what the Bride looks like. A time like Finney…I agree with what you said, he had power from God. People were shaking when he came in the room—convicted of sin. It’s no joke. He was a Godly man, but so ignorant about many things.
I said to my wife, “This is why I believe a show of God now exists at its roots…with all the knowledge He has given us, with all the scrolls being opened now,” especially what you are doing now. The Lord is surely expecting us now to be like Finney, but in perfect doctrinal ways—where no one can catch you with “doctrinal error.” No one can judge you because of your external, physical, everyday life. You know what I mean?
Surely, it is God’s time to reveal His power in His Church that way, because, as you said, He made room for ignorance in the past. He made room for it. It’s not right by any means. Why not be instruments which are PERFECT in terms of, in terms of…
What God really wants.
Yeah, what God really wants. Do you know what I mean?
Yes. If the Bride has made Herself ready as an equal yoke for Jesus, why would She only have one arm? Or be missing an eye? No, She’s spotless and blameless, without wrinkle. You’re exactly right. Ephesians 5—that’s the Bride He wants, one who is matured and not lacking, having no obvious flaws as in times past.
