The Self Proclaimed Bride
“…She saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow” (Rev. 18:9). She is declaring in her heart, herself to be a ruler, a sitting queen, one who is married to the king. She is declaring within her own heart, herself to be no widow. She is declaring herself to have a living husband, a king. Catch this “she saith” and she is saying this in her heart. The Bible itself does not call her a bride or a queen that is what she is calling herself. May I point out, if there is a false Christ then there will be a false bride and if a false bride then a false church. Remember her city is referred to as Babylon, while the city of the true Bride is referred to as the “New Jerusalem”. This is the same woman in Revelation chapter 17:5 “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. While she says she is a bride the Word calls her a “mother of harlots” a mother of a family of (spiritual) prostitutes, a mother of idolatresses. The mother of the filth and abominations of the earth. John said, I saw this woman, this mother of harlots, the self-proclaimed bride as she was drunken and intoxicated. John tells us her mental drunken excitement came through the shedding of the saint’s blood. John said “I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus” (Rev 17:6). The number one meaning of intoxicate is “poison”. Poison, through chemical reactions can kill, it can be destructive it can inhibit any or all activity of another. Think not that this woman is non-religious! She is very religious, she is full of religion in so much she would deceive the elect of God if that were possible with her poison religion. We are warned here in this book, the real and the false will be so close together it would deceive the true elected Bride of Christ if it were possible. Read Revelation chapter 2 and 3 very closely and you will find the spirit of this self-proclaimed bride, Jezebel trying to move into the seven churches in Asia, you will find her excitement of shedding the blood of the true saints, trying to infiltrate her religious poison and doing it all in the name of “religion” or “church”. There is nothing more that the spirit of this woman would want than to remove the Holy Spirit from operating in leadership of the Church and replacing the leadership with what she calls “holy-men”. Resulting in, the people thinking the only way to get to God or the only way to get anything from God is by going through some pope, dead saint, priest or preacher. This false bride spreads her Babylonian system to the nations of the world. She is backed by POLITICS AND RELIGION! You can see her self-glorification as it has moved into the last of the seven churches mentioned, Laodicea. “Because thou sayest”! See right there is the same spirit of that same woman, the antichrist spirit. “Self-glorification” trying to move into the real church to spread her abomination, the same way Jezebel came into Israel to spread her abomination of Baal worship! “Because thou sayest, I am rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing…” (Rev. 3:17). This false self-proclaimed, self-glorified bride will try to poison, intimidate, belittle and mock the real elect Bride of Christ in all effort to stop her anointed and ordained activity on earth! However, God Himself will vindicate His elect Bride, she will have no need for self-glorification! The True Bride of Christ, God will vindicate in both Word and Spirit! The Glory of God Will Vindicate The True End Time Bride of Christ! The same glory that covered the first man Adam and the first bride Eve before their fall will be a covering for the true end time Bride of Christ! The Bride of Christ moving into the glory will be her state of Divine Vindication!
