“Our sister, may you become the mother of thousands of ten thousands; and may your descendants possess the gates of those who hate them” (Genesis 24:60).
When Rebecca was to get married, her family members blessed her. They did not bless her with twofold, fivefold or tenfold blessings but with blessings in crores and crores. If it is so, how lot blessings will be brought to the congregation of the New Testament!
Paul the Apostle said, “For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ” (II Corinthians 11:2). So, you have to be a stainfree and blemishless bride in the presence of God. “The marriage of the Lamb has come and His wife has made herself ready” (Revelation 19:7).
In the New Testament, Paul wrote about Rebecca in this way. “And not only this, but when Rebecca also had conceived by one man, even by our father Isaac (for the children not yet being born, nor having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works but of Him who calls)” (Romans 9:10, 11).
Today, the Christians have risen to great number all over the world. A chosen group among them will be the bride of Christ. So prepare yourself as the New Jerusalem. John says, “I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband” (Revelation 21:2).
Christ bought the shepherds of God through the own blood (Acts 20:28). It was made strong with the anointment of the Holy Spirit. The church has been growing and expanding right from the Day of Pentecost till date. Three thousand persons were saved during the maiden preaching of Peter and were attached to the church. Thereafter people are continually saved in flocks. “The Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved” (Acts 2:47).
When you stand in that bright and glorious nation which is the heaven, you will not be standing alone but with crores and crores of people. A great multitude will be standing in Mount Zion with the lamb. John the Apostle writes, “After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honour and power belong to the Lord our God” (Revelation 19:1). Dear children of God, the Coming of God is fast approaching. All the signs of His Coming are sighted all over the world. All the prophecies related to His Coming have been fulfilled. Get prepared to meet the bridegroom who is Jesus Christ, face to face.
To meditate: “A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him. a thousand thousands ministered to Him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated and the books were opened.” (Daniel 7:10).
