Life eternal? For what reason
Will GOD grant it in His time?
He’s preparing in due season
Wondrous blessings, joy sublime!
Now He’s training caring teachers
To instruct in righteousness
Life and peace for all GOD’s creatures
He designs to guide and bless!
Soon Christ’s Kingdom will be bringing
Understanding of GOD’s Plan.
Then they’ll all His praise be singing,
As they see His love toward man.
Justice, Wisdom, Love and Power
Of GOD’s character the base;
Through all ages, like a flower
He’ll unfold His glorious grace.

THE LAMB’S WIFE
Jesus, the Lamb of GOD, delighted to do His Father’s will.The course marked out for Him was a remarkable one. He “made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore GOD also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name.” “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus,” for GOD has predestinated that the Bride of Christ must first be conformed to His image (Romans 8:29).
Those who demonstrate their loyalty to their heavenly Bridegroom under the various tests now upon us, filling up of the afflictions left behind of Christ for the Body’s sake will be counted worthy to form the Bride, the second Eve. O glorious prospect drawing near—the Marriage of the Lamb!
“And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.” -Matthew 25:10
When the marriage is consummated, and the virgins, the Bride’s companions that follow her, are brought into the King’s palace, with gladness and rejoicing, then the regeneration of Adam’s race, for whom atonement will have been made, will begin, and “the fathers shall become the children” of the Bride and Bridegroom, and they shall be made princes in all the earth, as co-labourers in the glorious work—the restitution of all things made possible through the sacrifice of the man Christ Jesus.
