What shall be done then my brother? Only this , we must cry day and night to cling to the Truth as His remnant Bride, the few in whom the Son of Man , when He comes, will find faith on the earth. The Bride embraces the Cross, she is a fearless witness, she loves the embrace of prayer , knows her position in Christ and knows it is by the sheer mercy and grace of God that she remains there . She has seen all too often and all too clearly the end of those branches which bear no fruit . She has wept as she has seen them wither, be broken off , and become fuel for the fire. She fears God intensely not because she fears condemnation but becauses she knows that apart from the complete weakness of death to her own will and utter dependence on Christ she will fall into the harlot's ways. She has read of the harlot women of old "Oholah the elder and Oholibah her sister." (Ezekiel 23) , she has read of the Israelites and the golden calf,(Exodus 32), and Elijah and the prophets of Baal (1 Kings 18:19-40) . She rejoices in the correction of the Father becauses she knows it makes her more to be desired by the One she loves, Jesus the Savior of the World, and because it assures her that the Father loves her. She will embrace martyrdom for the Lord's sake if need be because she knows that her real life is in Christ and not in the earthly realm. She knows that there is no crown without a cross, and she accepts it not even to gain a crown for herself , but only that by so doing she may , in the tender mercies of her Father, cast it one day at the feet of the One she longs for with overwhelming anticipation. She rejoices in her salvation not even because she is saved from the lake of fire so much as because it brings the Father and Son glory . She says together with the two Moravian brothers " That the Lamb of God may see the reward of His suffering and be satisfied" . She would serve the Master even if He sent her to hell simply because she loves Him and because He is worthy of all service, praise , glory and honor.
Rev. 5:12 saying with a loud voice, "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing."
13 And every created thing which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all things in them, I heard saying, " To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever."
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit both now and unto the end of the age,
in the love of the Father , the embrace of the Son, and in the mercy and concern of Holy Spirit
