Day 31

Daily Focus: A Call To Readiness and Preparation For Jesus’ Return

Jesus is returning for His bride, the Church. He is coming to bring home a bride who is “spotless and without wrinkle” (Ephesians 5:27). It is therefore important for Jesus’ followers to be well prepared and ready for His return.

Scriptures: 

Ephesians 5:27 (NIV)
… and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.

Revelation 7:14 NIV
These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Revelation 12:11
They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony;
they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.

Revelation 19:7 (NIV)
Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.

Prayer:

Lord, anoint the Bride/Church to get ready for the return of the Groom/Jesus having plenty of oil in her lamps with extra containers of oil, if You tarry for a while. Prepare Her through obedience to Your Word, Your Will and a Holy Spirit led life of prayer, wholeness, unity, maturity, missions, and evangelism (“getting all the invitations out for the wedding!”)

Glorious Father, develop, nurture, mature, anoint and release great faith, hope and love so the Christian Church can persevere in prayer, mission and ministry and be Revelation Overcomers. Let the Bride/Church complete all of Your visions, missions and plans for the Christian Church (individually, in family and community), and throughout the world, the universe, and this present age. Lord, may You return for a Bride who is united, mature, happy, healthy, whole and holy and fully ready having fulfilled all of Your Redemptive Plans and Purposes in Jesus’ Almighty and Everlasting Name! Amen

MARANATHA – COME, LORD JESUS!
