Becoming the bride is the experience of the over-comer, one who has paid the price to become the bride and has endured & persevered to the end and has never given up! Becoming the bride is not a salvation issue, it's about an ongoing, intimate, loving eternal relationship with the King of kings. It is a daily dying experience that moves us to perfection with Him completing the work. He will only complete us with our permission and with our obedience. The beauty we experience is worth the price! Revelation 19:7 "let us rejoice and exalt and give Him glory because the wedding celebration of the Lamb has come. And His bride has made herself ready."
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
