water of life
We can receive salvation in this last age through the Spirit and the Bride. The people of God living in the last days must hear the calling of the Saviors and follow Their words of life. Only through the Bible can we know the Spirit and the Bride and Their plan of salvation.
The Spirit and the Bride Testified in the Bible
No one can save oneself without the help of the Savior. God the Savior teaches us through the Bible, His precious teaching of life. Through the history of the Bible we can realize that we can be blessed by following His teachings. As it is recorded in Romans 15:4, all things written in the Bible are for our own good. Throughout all ages, God teaches us of how to live spiritually which He has always given in advance for us to learn before we can follow.
In the time of Moses, God commanded Moses to lead the Israelites to the promised land, Canaan. The Egyptians were chasing after them and the Red Sea was in front of them. At that moment it seemed like they were never going to make to Canaan. By believing God’s words, Moses raised his staff and the Red Sea miraculously divided and God’s people were saved. This all happen with Moses’ faith relying on God’s words. The Israelites would have been taken captive once again to Egypt and died if Moses did not follow God’s teachings. With this history we can realize, whenever we obey God’s words we can experience miracles.
Another familiar story we can find is in the time of Noah. God instructed Noah to build an ark to be saved from a flood that will destroy the whole earth. If Noah did not obey God’s teachings, he and his whole family could not have been saved from the flood.
When God’s people followed the commands of God, they were blessed and lived. This does not stay as a history but also applies for this age.
God’s Promise of Salvation in the Last Days
Even in the last days God has promised to save us.
Rev 22:17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.
Just as Revelation 22:18, we must not add or take away from God’s words of life for our salvation. God has prophesied and prepared everything which we can end up in a positive result if we follow God’s teachings.
The role of the Spirit and the Bride is to give all who are thirsty the water of life. Since only God can give the water of life, the Spirit and the Bride must be God Almighty. If we have understood this prophecy, we must follow Them.
The Spirit and the Bride are Calling
According to the Trinity, the Holy Spirit is our God our Father. Revelation shows that when the Spirit, the second coming Christ appears, the Bride must also appear. Many Christians believe that only God the Father can give us the water of life, nevertheless, we also need to receive the Bride in order to receive full salvation. When the members of the World Mission Society Church of God say that we believe in both God the Father and God the Mother, they argue that the Bride indicates the saints and not God the Mother.
Can the Bride be the Saints and Not God the Mother?
The Bible testifies that all mankind are sinners that came to this Earth because of our sins (Ro 6:23). We all are the ones who need to RECEIVE salvation instead of giving salvation. We are not responsible to make other sinner live and only God can. Matthew 26:26-28 state that only God can give the water of life; eternal life. These verses surely testify that the Bride must be God Almighty.
The Bride is God the Mother
We are in desperate need of this water of life that the Bride has the power to give since all mankind are destined to die.
Rev 21:9-10 …“Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” …and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.
The Bride, the wife of the Lamb, is the Jerusalem that is in Heaven. The Apostle Paul also gave testimony to this Heavenly Jerusalem and taught that we have an important relationship with her.
Gal 4:26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.
This Jerusalem above is in Heaven and not on this Earth. “Our” here indicates the believers just like Paul. This means the Bride in Revelation must be our Mother. As God’s people have their Father in Heaven, they also have their Mother in Heaven too. This is an undeniable truth which we can confirm from God’s teachings.
The Spirit and the Bride are the Only Way to Live
Salvation is only given when we seek, call and obey God’s teachings. Otherwise, no one can be saved.
Isa. 55:1-2 “Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare.
Isa. 55:6 Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near.
In this last age, we must seek, call and obey the teachings of God (the Spirit and the Bride). This is the only way we can receive the water of life. If someone interprets God’s teachings with their own opinions they can never receive the water of life.
