for the Bride to walk in the fullness of all that He has for her; He is desiring that we walk in a manner that is worthy of our calling. As we, the Bride, come through the refining and purification process, the end results will be glorious! We will be a shining example for the world to see: a royal diadem in the hands of our God! ?You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, And a royal diadem in the hand of your God? (Isaiah 62:3).
UPGRADE The other day I went to the store nearby our home to pick up a few household supplies. I hadn?t been to this particular store in several weeks, so when I walked in to see that the entire shop had been remodeled, I was barely able to recognize it!

However, as we come forth made completely new, the Lord?s glory will be revealed in and through us: His Bride!

He is restoring a clean and holy fear of the Lord back to the Church. Even as things in the church are currently being exposed, I believe that this will only continue.
