    A man of God came near and spoke to the king of Israel, and said, "Yahweh says, 'Because the Syrians have said, "Yahweh is a god of the hills, but he is not a god of the valleys;" therefore I will deliver all this great multitude into your hand, and you shall know that I am Yahweh.' 1 Kings 20:28 WE...

The Bride of Christ

  • Those believers who shall be worthy to join the Lord in marriage are they who responded to His admonition and condition by taking up their personal cross to follow Him. To follow Him is to become like Him. To follow Him means to follow His example of sacrificial living through demonstrated love unto the benefit of others. To be counted worthy of the Lord is to lay down the self-life so that the life of Christ might be taken up by the glory and the authority of the Spirit of God. It is when one is willing to let go of all other agendas that put the focus on oneself so that the God of wonders might be glorified. To be counted worthy to be in the bridal company of Jesus Christ means to abandon oneself to become one with Him in vision, desire, and purpose. It means to become a vessel in the earth that God can use as He pleases. You cannot walk in agreement with the Lord and be His bride if self is not crucified because His ways and desires are completely contrary to that of self. The Father said to me from His throne in eternity with a voice that burned like fire right through me "there are no adequate words that can articulate the majestic honor and glory that permeates a life sacrificed so that the God of wonders might be glorified. It has eternal consequences that only eternity will tell. "

    Understand therefore the eternal purpose of taking up your personal cross beloved child of God because your eternal reward and kingdom destiny is at stake if you refuse to die to yourself and live for God for what is seen is only temporary but what is unseen is eternal.

    When we consider the example in the life of Jesus we can clearly see that God the Father wanted a family so He came and planted a SEED into the earth and this SEED is the life of His precious Son. But as the scripture teaches in 1Cor 15:36-38 It is necessary for the seed that you sow into the earth to undergo death in order for it to come to life again (His sacrifice that brought redemption).

    The death of the seed is what activates the created purpose of the seed because through its death a harvest is brought forth. (THE CALL OF THE CROSS UNTO THE DEATH OF SELF)

    And when you put it into the earth, you do not put in the body which it will be, but only the seed, of grain or some other sort of plant; But God gives it a body, as it is pleasing to Him, and to every seed its special body.(A COMPLETE NEW CREATION)

    Concerning His personal purpose for coming into this world, Jesus himself declared in Hebrews 10:5 So that when He comes into the world, He says, (to His Father) You had no desire for offerings, but you made a body ready for Me.

    And when He was on His way to be crucified our Lord made an interesting statement, Truly I say to you, If a seed of grain does not go into the earth and come to an end, it is still only a seed and no more; but through its death, it gives much fruit.(A BOUNTIFUL HARVEST) John 12:24

    So the Father wanted a family and He planted a SEED (Jesus) and we are the fruit of that amazing sacrifice. Please, disciple and follower of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth understand then that the main purpose of any plant (you and me) is to reproduce new life through the manufacturing of many seeds and we do this by sowing ourselves into the kingdom purposes of Almighty God.

    His intense desire is to bring forth a glorious harvest through your sacrificed life by making you fruitful in His kingdom. So many Christians are withholding what rightfully belongs to God, THE SEED OF THEIR LIVES. Remember what the scripture says in 1Cor 6:19-20 What? know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which you have of God, and you are not your own? For you are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which is God's.

    God showed me this horrific reality. If I am Satan, I do not have to physically kill you to destroy you as a child of God. All I need to do is to cause you to live for yourself, being ignorant of answering the call of Christ through your personal cross. What will be the consequences of this?

    If Satan can succeed to withhold the seed of your life to be sown into God's kingdom then I destroy the purpose and the harvest of your eternal destiny.


    There are nations within our spiritual wombs as the called bride of Christ and Satan is after those nations and how will the great commission be fulfilled when everybody wants to live for themselves?

    We should be ashamed of ourselves. Remember then, to call yourself a Christian means that you identify yourself with Christ in becoming like Him.

    God the Father said to me, You are "THE" generation that has been given "THE" prophetic key to unlock the final harvest in the earth. This key works in the following manner.

    As the bride comes into agreement with her Husband by embracing the covenant requirements of the cross unto the death of self and she releases the seed of her life through an intimate love relationship, He, in turn, responds by becoming one with her through a sacred union. Then the Lord God impregnates the seed of her life and this principle births and brings forth the nations of the final harvest.

    In other words, the final harvest is the children that are birthed through the marriage between Christ and His devoted bride. As she abandons herself to her King, she becomes one with Him in vision, desire, and purpose. By sacrificing herself on her altar of demonstrated love (OUR PERSONAL CROSS) she becomes the love of God. God's love is a fruit of the Spirit and the fruit speaks of the mature stage of the sacrificed seed. When we follow the Lord through the journey of His example He will bring us into maturity, yes, into the glory of manifest sonship. Then as the Father release us to labor in His fields we bring forth a bountiful harvest through the power of demonstrated love.

    Are you a true follower of the Lord or have you been deceived through the traditions and doctrines of men and lulled to sleep by a false gospel?

    The gospel that you just read is exactly what the Son of God meant when He said, Deny yourself, take up your cross and follow Me.

    Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

    Matthew 28:18-20 "And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go you, therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen."

    Through the gospel of Christ, the Father invites us to embrace the challenge of demonstrated love.

    Only you can make the choice.

    The parable of the apple.

    If I cut an apple open then you will be able to count a number of seeds inside. Then if you put just one little seed in the middle of your hand and you look at it, you will never be able to count all the apples in that one seed.

    This is called the law of multiplication. Let that seed represent your life. As you apply the water of His word to your life through your obedience, He will activate its growth potential and cause you to grow into a beautiful fruit-bearing plant (MATURE SON) and when God can get your fruit, it will mean plenty of new seeds (more lives being saved) because fruit carries seed.

    John 12:23-26 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it abides alone: but if it dies, it brings forth much fruit. 25 He that loves his life shall lose it; and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. 26 If any man serves me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serves me, him will my Father honor.

Pastor Marty Pena Total complete sacrifice, hard to do but totally attainable. It is up to us if we are willing to give it all up. Live a consecrated life unto the Lord. That is a choice and it is possible this I know. The price, a very high one, but I want to be found worthy when He comes back for me. Jesus is our main focus, not family, friends, wealth, etc....the choice is ours and at this hour worth the cost. To God be all the Glory! Thank you, Pastor Todd, Thank you, Carol. Denying of self is denying it all. It won't be long before He comes back. Is the sacrifice not worth it? Is HE not worth it? Eternity is where my focus is on at this hour. Love you all. God bless you. Shalom.

"Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law..." That is the golden rule of satanism. It is rebellion against the world's system to serve Jesus, and offering your body as a living sacrifice can be difficult at times. Good word.  :)
