"Come let me show you the bride The Lamb's Wife."Revelation: 21:9b
I yearn for the bride...the Spirtual City of God. For it is this very spirit I live to behold the time of the Lord's return. A spiritual bride awaits the Second coming of Christ; and has given up the old way of life of living in the world. This of course, does not means one is desiring to be put death, but that death has come to them because death has been overcome with a new eternal spiritual life. The bride, the new Jerusalem.
What exactly is a Spiritual Bride? You'll read of a new spirit written in the Word. The old man passes away and the new man indicating a Spiritual man is born. A bride of Spirit awaits his or her husband which is the Christ. These who have put away the entire life of worldly living and sins have crossed over into the full dedication and commitment to the God of Spirit. All of former things are gone and the light of the new body is entirely one of new spirit. Thusly this a bridal spirit longs and yearns for the return of Christ, and watches and waits for this event. Facsinating as it may sound, it is truly a whole dedication of faithful living by the Spirit of Christ. This is the Holy Spirit's union of the new spiritual persona. Changed by spiritual enlightment and contained in obedience to purity and light.
Becoming a Spiritual Bride will connect you into a new realm of faith. Your connection is as those where you have read in the Word who received the Spiritual connection of God's Spirit in the very essence of their being. Your eyes will be opened to spiritual things, and you will be revealed the spiritual secrets of God. Your body will be his holy temple and you will no longer be a slave to sin and unrighteous things. The light of your body is the eye, and your eye is opened to the Spirit, --you become full of light. Your soul will know love like never before and becoming in love your love for others will be great as you are shown a greater love by God. You will become enchanced with God's entire Holy Spirit of love. Becoming then, you will be a bride. All things will be made new! You entire self will be changed.
As far as sufferings...because you are Christ's
You as a Spiritual bride of Christ:
"Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange is happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit and the glory of God rests in you."
[1 Peter 3: 12-14]
NIV International Bible Society Nov.1999
When one has totally committed all Spiritual things of God, then this spiritual bride within is a new creation and is revealed what is to come. These bridal spirits are given unique gifts of the Spirit; and others the gifts of prophecy. Some become as angels, but continue to reside in the earth until the rapture of their spirit's time is come. This too, is the cause that many bridal spirits to yearn for the return of Christ daily, hourly and until the wonderful beholding the Lord is descended. These new bodies of brides are yearning for the Spiritual bridal city where the light within is not furnished by sunlight, but by the immortal God of Light and forever Spirit.
"The yearning is love and the longing is in the waiting."--MIIS
"Be not forgetful to entertain strangers; for thereby some have entertained angels unawares." Hebrews 13:2
I AM the Bride, MIISRAEL
