Phase 1: The preparations for His return to earth
Mal. 3:1a “Behold, I will send My messenger, and he shall prepare the way before Me.”
This preparation for His return shall happen by His Holy Spirit with the hereto called and anointed human “mouthpieces” as His spiritual instruments.
The 1st preparation: The call of the Spirit at midnight (during spiritual, social and military midnight circumstances).
Matt. 25:6-13 “And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 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. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.”
Eph. 5:14-20 “Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that (spiritually) sleepest, and arise from the (spiritual) dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with the wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
By this a common spiritual awakening of the whole Church will happen.
The 2nd preparation: The call of the Spirit to take part unto the marriage supper of the Lamb of God.
Rev. 19:9 “And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, these are the true sayings of God.”
To them, who in their spirit will take part unto this supper, this decision shall bring about for them the perfect redemption from all power of sin. They shall be made without any spot or wrinkle by their faithful and out of their own free will taking part in this perfect washing in the blood that God’s Lamb shed for us, by continually and spiritually eating and drinking His flesh and blood (see phase 2)
Luke 9:23-24 “And He said to them all, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for My sake, the same shall save it.”
2 Co. 4:10-11 “Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the (resurrection)life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the (resurrection)life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh (so: already here on earth).”
