The Bride


This website is dedicated to Christ Jesus, who the scriptures refer to as the spiritual Bridegroom to His Church.  It is also dedicated to the edification, nurturing and encouragement of His dearly beloved Bride, the called, chosen and faithful elect.

“He who has the bride is the Bridegroom….” John 3:29

The Bridal Covenant, An Overview

“Called, chosen and faithful describes the three major stages in the Bride’s journey from her initial calling to full maturity as the Wife of the Lamb.   The fact that many are called but few are chosen reveals the uneasy truth that even though all of the church (the many)  are invited into this Bridal relationship, in the end not all will be prepared to embrace the cost of becoming the Lamb’s Wife (the called, chosen and faithful few).”  Read more…..

The Bride: Her Betrothal

“God takes covenant seriously; so should we. Not very much longer after that intimate Passover meal, the church was born as the blood and water gushed from the side of Christ, the last Adam, just as the very first bride, Eve, had been brought forth from the side of the first Adam (1 Cor. 15:45; John 19:34).”  Read more….

The Bride: Her Election

“There is a place for the Bride beyond betrothal, and it is her election.  The Bride who is with Christ at the end is called, and chosen and faithful (Rev. 17:14). This elect bridal company are those who ‘follow the Lamb wherever He goes” (Rev. 14:4), and the Lamb will not always lead the Bride into easy places. Between betrothed bride and faithful wife there is a spiritual journey during which many choices are made.  That journey is costly for the Bride of Christ.”  Read more….

The Bride: The Lamb’s Wife

“…the bride’s faithfulness to the groom is therefore pivotal to the entire marriage. The Bride of Christ comprises those who give the Bridegroom absolute pre-eminence in all aspects of their lives (Col. 1:18).”  Read more…

And the Spirit and the Bride say “Come!”

  1. Hello Cheryl,

    I’m looking for your post around 2005 (?) about if you can’t keep up with foot soldiers, how are you going to keep up with the horsemen. (Paraphrasing)

    Thank you for walking with Jesus, hearing from the Spirit, and encouraging the body of Christ for all these years!
