The ultimate goal of a bride of Jesus is to practice  unlawfulness, completely escape spiritual dependency on others, share one another’s burdens as the kingdom and the priests of Christ, fulfill the calling as gospel evangelists who uphold the law of Christ, spread the words of the Holy Spirit that have been kept in store to be put on fire with the same word, and gain the eternal life from the Holy Spirit to Beatitudes cross imagebecome believers who enter the eternal kingdom of Christ. (KC)

“Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.”   <Gal 6:2>

<2 Pe 3:7>
7.    But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

<2 Pe 1:3-11>
3.    According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4.    Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
5.    And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
6.    And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
7.    And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
8.    For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9.    But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
10.    Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
11.    For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

That is, the bride of Jesus are those who grasp the prophecy
of Jesus in the end times,

①     Seeing from the perspective of Christ (Rev 5:6),
②     Having the heart of Christ (Php 2:1-11),
③     Planting the love of Christ (Jn 13:34-35),
④     Following the form of Christ (Ro 8:28-31),
⑤     Obeying the prophecy of Christ (Rev 1:3),
⑥     Spreading the gospel of Christ (Eph 4:11-16),
⑦     Fulfilling the law of Christ as the gospel evangelists (Gal 6:2).



7-goldstand-copy<1 Pe 2:9>
9.    But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

<Gal 6:2-10>
2.    Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
3.    For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
4.    But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
5.    For every man shall bear his own burden.
6.    Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.
7.    Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8.    For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
9.    And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
10.    As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

<Mt 24:11-14>
11.    And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12.    And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13.    But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14.    And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

<Mt 7:15-23>
15.    Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16.    Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17.    Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18.    A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19.    Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20.    Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21.    Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22.    Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23.    And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.


<Ac 20:29-31>                                                                                                                                    29.   For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves                                     enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
30.   Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse12-desiples+ - things, to draw away disciples after them.
31.    Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.

<Eph 4:11-16>
11.    And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12.    For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13.    Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
14.    That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
15.    But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
16.    From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

<1 Co 12:27>
27.   Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

However, regardless of whether or not we call ourselves disciples of the Lord, if we are ignorant to the genuine evangelism of the gospel with a lukewarm love and our words and actions are incoherent in our lives, we will not reach salvation through self-righteous assertions and theoretical declaration based solely on mere knowledge and philosophy, even if we participate in church activities.
Such a hypocritical structure in which the religious realm and our lives become disconnected represents essentially a separation in relationship with God from the moment we turn off the spiritual antenna that must always be kept on in our lives.

Instead of blindly standing with the priests and the Levites who do not see and just pass by the neglected, hurt people whose souls were taken away by the tempters of Satan, the bride of Jesus  must pour oil and wine, which symbolize the word of the new covenant, unto their wounds, share one another’s burdens in the process of healing those wounds (Gal 6:2), provide the spiritual food to spread the gospel (Heb 13:16) and take up the courage to walk forth in the path of good Samaritans who show love more actively.


<Lk 10:30-37>
30.  And Jesus answering said, A certain man went bible-image-copydown from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.
31.   And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
32.   And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.
33.   But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
34.   And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
35.   And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.
36.   Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?
37.   And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

To achieve this, the bride of Jesus must first empty his or her heart and, have genuine passion to become a true disciple of Jesus as the kingdom and the priest of God having received the oil-pouring in the Lord, make all those who are prepared as partnering disciples and strive to help solve the issues they may have. He or she also must needs to gather all of the empty bowls, which symbolize the people who have emptied their hearts, and fill them with oil, striving for the second and third miracle of Elisha.

<2 Ki 4:1-7>
1.    Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the LORD: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen.
2.    And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil.
3.    Then he said, Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours, even empty vessels; borrow not a few.
4.    And when thou art come in, thou shalt shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons, and shalt pour out into all those vessels, and thou shalt set aside that which is full.
5.    So she went from him, and shut the door upon her and upon her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured out.
6.    And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said unto her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed.
7.    Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy children of the rest.

<2 Co 9:6>
6.    But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.


 Also, a bride of Jesus must realize that he or she is a clergy  working to spread the gospel, receive the rightful wage as a rosegospel evangelist, seek and use materials for evangelizing and missions as foot soldiers of Christ according to God’s purpose. This is definitely not a favor-seeking faith but rather an active attitude that all believers must follow after in the end times.

<1 Co 9:13-14>                                                                                        13.  Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?                                                                                                                  14.  Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.

<Dt 25:4>
4.  Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn.

<1 Co 9:9-11>
9  For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen?
10 Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope; and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope.
11 If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?

<1Ti 5:17-18>
17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

<Jas 5:1-5>
1  Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
2  Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth eaten.
3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
4 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.
5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.

<2 Ti 2:2-6>
2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.
6 The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.

<Eze 37:1-10>
1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,
2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.
4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.
5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

<Jn 6:38-40>
38.  For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
39.  And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
40.  And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.


2010-02-22 18.01.50   To become a good foot soldier of Jesus, we must free ourselves of materialistic restrictions and mammonism to prevalent, emanate the scent and light of Christ as the kingdom and the priests of God in the end times with the influence of the Holy Spirit, and hold up the God-centered religion in the proper way.

Thus, urgently needed are wisdom and determination to realize and choose the path of a bride of Jesus, as partnering disciple written in the book of life while, with gratitude and hope, giving the glory to the Lord who enables to fulfill the law of Christ of sharing one another’s burdens and achieving goodness in the Lord united with all partnering disciples (Ro 8:28-30).

That is, by following and fulfilling the last command of the resurrected Jesus, “make disciples of all nations”, we must empty our hearts from the worldly greed and temptations like empty bowls and form the living symbiotic community of the gospel evangelists walking on the path of the bride of Jesus as partnering disciples, written in the book of life, in the Lord with the grace of Jesus.
Such blessings stem from the knowledge of truth and the hope of eternal life flowing from the faith and reverence of those chosen by God. This eternal life had been promised by the genuine God before the eternal times, and now he has shown the words of eternal life as evangelism according to the times of promise.

The evangelism that bears the fruit of fulfilling the law of Christ has been left to us by the command of our Savior God, and gives the eternal life for those who believe and follow God to realize his ultimate plan. For this, the bride of Jesus become those who conquer the world according to the will of Savior Jesus, go forth towards the throne of grace, and fulfill the holy calling prophesied for us in the end times (Heb 4:16).

<Php 4:1-7>
1 Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.
2  I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord.
3 And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellow labourers, whose names are in the book of life.
Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.
Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

<Tit 1:1-3>
1 Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God’s elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;
In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;
But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;

<Mt 28:18-20>
18. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

<Jer 20:9>
9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.

<Mt 13:18-23>
18  Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
19  When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

<Mk 4:26-29>
26 And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;
27 And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.
28 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.
29 But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.


Shalom!

<Jn 4:1-42>

1 When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,
2 (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)  
3 He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
4 And he must needs go through Samaria.
5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
6 Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)
9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
16 Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
18 For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.
19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
26 Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
27 And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?
28 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,
29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?
30 Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.
31 In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.
32 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.
39 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.
40 So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.
41 And many more believed because of his own word;
42 And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.
