BILL OF CITIZENSHIP IN THE KINGDOM
PART 3 OF 4
[CONTINUED FROM ARTICLE 5]
Article 6: God's Perception of Us
Then I heard what seemed to be a large crowd that sounded like a roaring flood and loud thunder all mixed together. They were saying,
"Praise the Lord!
Our Lord God All-Powerful now rules as King.
So we will be glad and happy and give Him praise.
The wedding day of the Lamb is here, and His bride is ready.
She will be given a wedding dress made of pure and shining linen.
This linen stands for the good things God's people have done."
Then the angel told me, "Put this in writing. God will bless everyone who is invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb." The angel also said, "These things that God has said are true." I knelt at the feet of the angel and began to worship him. But the angel said, "Don't do that! I am a servant, just like you and everyone else who tells about Jesus. Don't worship anyone but God. Everyone who tells about Jesus does it by the power of the Spirit."
Then I was told, "I am Jesus! And I am the One who sent my angel to tell all of you these things for the churches. I am David's Great Descendant, and I am also the Bright Morning Star. The Spirit and the bride say, 'Come!' If you are thirsty, come! If you want life-giving water, come and take it. It's free!"
So, Lord Jesus, please come soon!
(Revelation 19:5-10; 22:16-17)
