Extracting the Bride

Some thanks again to J. Herrin. This is a reduction of a larger message that he has shared…

Beloved, do you really believe that the masses of Christendom are walking in truth? This cannot be, for Paul said in his writings that Christ would not come in the fullness of His Kingdom until there first be a great falling away from the truth in the church. It should be no surprise to us that the popular bible translations of our day are full of mythology and error, for such a thing was prophesied by holy apostles and prophets. Those of you who are unsettled by the fact that what is being taught lately goes against the overwhelming mindset of the majority. This by necessity must be the case. Paul has also written…

Because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. And for this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they might believe what is false… (II Thessalonians 2:10-11)

The salvation mentioned here is not referring to the salvation of the spirit of man, but to the saving of his soul, beloved. This salvation is referred to in Hebrews 9:28 and in many other places in scripture. Because so many have loved their delusions and have not known a love of the truth (pursuing and clinging to truth even at the cost of rejection, personal loss, tribulation, distress, etc.), God has sent upon them a deluding influence. Another way of putting this is that many Christians today have been put to sleep in their understanding. This too has been prophesied. In short; our Father is now preparing a Bride for Christ and He has caused a “deep sleep” to come over the Body while the material (remnant) from which the Bride will be formed is extracted. You should be able to see the formation of Eve from material that came out of Adam’s side as a type for this. The deep sleep mentioned here is referred to by Isaiah as “a spirit of slumber.” You may want to read Isaiah 29:10-14, as it might help you understand why only a small remnant of the Body of Christ can receive the truth in this hour.
