My child, you are My bride. You are My Jerusalem whom I love and cherish. For I am calling forth My bride, new Jerusalem. She is making herself ready for the day of My return. It has been in My heart from the beginning to raise up a people to know Me and follow after Me with their whole hearts. To you it has been granted My child, you I have called forth to rule and reign in My beloved city Jerusalem. I have removed your filthy rags and clothed you in festal robes. I have removed the reproach of the land and brought forth a lavish banquet. You look at Jerusalem as a place, I see her as a people. Just as I am outside of time, I also am outside of space. I am calling a people to be a crown of beauty in My hand. No longer will you be forsaken or desolate, but you will be called My delight is in her, for I delight in you. You are My holy people, the redeemed of the Lord; and you will be called, sought out, a city not forsaken. Isaiah 62.
“And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride, adorned for her husband.” Revelation 21:2
