The Purpose of Prophecy

Prophecy: A Covenant of Love

The purpose of prophecy is to prepare the bride for her Bridegroom. It reveals to us where Christ is at each step of His ministry and what He is currently doing to cleanse and purify His bride for the day when He comes to take her home. It’s the greatest love story ever told. Not only has He gone away to prepare a mansion for her, but He is also intimately active in cleansing her for the consummation of the wedding. This holy covenant, the marriage vow, assures us that His word will not return unto Him void but it will accomplish that for which it is sent. In Hosea 2:19-20, we read, “And I will betroth thee unto Me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto Me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in loving kindness, and in mercies. I will even betroth thee unto Me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the LORD.” This “knowing” is also referred to as the “at-one-ment” when we have been filled with the fullness of God.
