About The Bride Is Ready Series

Who is the Bride of Christ, and how does she make herself ready? These questions and more are explored in this piercing series as Martha digs deep into the blessings AND requirements of Christ's own Bride.


The facts of God’s gifts to us cannot be imagined. His being, His grace, His plan are so outside the thoughts of man that without His Word we could never dream of His genius, His goodness or His gifts. The Word connects us to divine realities and fuels the faith that overcomes.

Without the Bible, we would have little idea of who He is. Really is…

Scripture must fill the channels of the very hidden heart as words held in affection, cherished as the most precious and trustworthy truth. The scriptures must be the constant banquet for the mind’s hunger to “know.” The Word of God must settle every dispute, conquer every doubt until we are living and speaking merely the Words of Truth.

Our testimony is then His testimony. Our witness of Him is what He says Himself—about Himself. When His truth becomes our Truth, our sayings will be His sayings. Our words will resound with His sound and the enemy of our soul will be rendered powerless in his only means of attack: lies.

The Word combats the Lie and takes the fuse out of its explosion on our soul. The Word ignores the lie as so foolish as to merit no attention and so futile as to require no debate.

“They overcame him by the word…”

The Logos, expression of eternal communication: God’s truth and principle pressed into the form of human language that we might know and speak the wonders of our God, His victory and His worth.
