If the Lord was to call us Home, even today, how many of us would be prepared? “And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” – Revelation 21:2. Let us begin by taking a look at the words of Paul when speaking to the Church at Corinth.
“For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.” Instead of attempting to interject my interpretation of what is being said, I will simply give you the Bible and the Words of Jesus Christ for you to watch, read and listen to. All that is required is for you to see and hear what is being said. The Bible and the Gospel is simple.
