The Bride Is Submitted to the Word
Debra Klein - Nov./Dec. 2008
(David's notes in red)

I was in a huge temple, which I knew was the heavenly temple. I was dressed in a wedding dress and there were six other brides, besides myself, in this temple who also had their wedding dresses on. (This is a picture of the seven church types in Revelation 2 & 3.)

Somehow, we all knew that we were only to wear the wedding dresses and that absolutely no veils were allowed to be worn at this rehearsal. (The veil is a sign of submission to Jesus, the Word, which only the true bride will show herself to be - 1 Cor.11.)

I was sitting in the very last pew, on the right side, in the back of the Temple, where Jesus and I sat together "as a married couple", (He, at the end of the pew closest to the wall, and me to His right) with an aisle in the middle and pews to the left. (The last shall be first and the first last. In this world the least respected are those who seek not the admiration of the world but put self last and on the cross. They sit on the right, for they are the true sheep.)

Suddenly, something took place in the Temple that caused us all to stand up. And as we stood up, I noticed there was a bride standing in the pew directly in front of me. As I looked at her, I was taken aback in shock. She was a "dark" woman who had on a beautiful modern, white, slinky, sophisticated wedding dress. But to my surprise, the back of her dress had a see-through panel, through which I saw her naked body and an ugly tattoo on her right hip, which was an appalling sight! (This is a type of the Laodicean church whose nakedness was not revealed to her, for it was the back of her dress that was missing, but it was to everyone else because of her walking in darkness. {Rev.3:17} Because thou sayest, I am rich, and have gotten riches, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art the wretched one and miserable and poor and blind and naked: {18} I counsel thee to buy of me gold refined by fire, that thou mayest become rich; and white garments, that thou mayest clothe thyself, and [that] the shame of thy nakedness be not made manifest; and eyesalve to anoint thine eyes, that thou mayest see. We must be dressed up with the works of Jesus to have on the wedding garment. {Rom.13:12} The night is far spent, and the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. {13} Let us walk becomingly, as in the day; not in revelling and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and jealousy. {14} But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to [fulfil] the lusts [thereof].)

I turned my head to the Lord and said, "Lord, why did you want me to see this?" He responded and said, "Keep looking", and we all sat down. Then a woman walked through the double doors on the wall behind our pew and over toward the middle aisle at the end of the last pew where we sat and somehow knew she was the coordinator of this dress rehearsal. As she stood in the aisle at the end of our pew, she motioned to a family sitting at that end to get my attention.

As I turned to look toward her, she had draped across both arms the most beautiful veil I have ever seen, which I can't describe, because it was not of this world, but of a "heavenly" nature. I was awestruck at the sight of this veil so much so, that I couldn't breathe, or move, but could only feel my heart beating. (This Veil is truly not of this world and represents the manifestation of submission to the Lord, and His Word, for He is our husband.)

Suddenly, she pointed to me, indicating that the veil was mine! I was frozen and couldn't believe that the veil was for me! Then she motioned to me that she was going to come around the back of my pew where the Lord Jesus and I were sitting and place the veil on my head, which she did. (The Philadelphia Church is the type of the Bride to whom it was said: {Rev.3:10} Because thou didst keep the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of trial, (like Esther in the king's house didn't face Haman's wrath) that [hour] which is to come upon the whole world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. {11} I come quickly: hold fast that which thou hast, that no one take thy crown. {12} He that overcometh, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go out thence no more: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God, and mine own new name.)

I was still motionless and awestruck, and sat there for some time, contemplating this veil that she placed on my head, holding the Lord's hand all the while. Then I found myself observing myself from behind, being drawn closer to observe the head piece of the veil. I just had to see it! I was then lifted up in the Spirit high enough so as to hover over my head to get a good view of the head piece.

Upon careful inspection, to my surprise, the head piece was a white crown of thorns which was ever-so-delicately entwined all around with white baby's breath with a diamond at the end of each tiny flower. To my amazement, the thorns did not penetrate my scalp, my temples, nor my eyelids, and the thorns were neatly folded under! Weeping, I turned and looked at the Lord and asked Him, "Why are the thorns folded under?" He so lovingly and so humbly hung His head a little and said, "I took the thorns so you wouldn't have to". (Thorns represent the curse which Jesus bore. {Gal.3:13} Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us; for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: {14} that upon the Gentiles might come the blessing of Abraham in Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. {1 Pet.2:24} who his own self bare our sins in his body upon the tree, that we, having died unto sins, might live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed.)

I can't begin to describe to you the understanding I received, at that moment, of His unfathomable, deep love He has for His Bride! All I could do was weep uncontrollably at the wonder of His love! Immediately, the organ began to play "Here Comes the Bride!" and I stood up, as I knew it was my queue, and scurried through the pew and into the aisle, and up the aisle toward my Beloved.

As I continued to walk, I noticed the five other brides scattered throughout the pews on the left side of the Temple and looked back again at the Lord who was waiting for me at the altar and asked Him who these five were. He said, "Beloved, these are the five foolish virgins". And I continued to walk toward Him and woke up! (The foolish virgins were at the marriage feast of seven days (tribulation) but were not permitted in the midnight escort to the Groom's home (heaven) afterwards where the marriage supper is. [In Mt.25:10 the Greek word "Gamos" just means "marriage" and includes the whole marriage of the feast and the supper.] These brides are typed by the five other churches of Revelation, who have the position of bride given to them from the beginning but do not appropriate the promises to manifest the fullness of this position. As we see in Esther, Song of Solomon and Psalm 45, the bride is chosen from among all the virgins, queens and concubines of the kingdom. The promises to the overcomers in their midst were given to them, and no doubt overcomers will come out of them to be members of the bride body in our day.)

I didn't want to wake up and tried to go back to sleep to continue the dream but nothing happened and I laid there quietly and knew that the Lord was telling me that it was time for the wedding feast! (The Wedding Feast is the last seven days, representing the tribulation, before the bride and Groom are escorted to the Groom's home (in heaven) by the wise virgins.)

And so I asked Him, "Lord, the bride who was in front of me, was that the corrupt church?" And He said, "Yes". (So many are selling their birthright instead of running after holiness.)

Then I thought about the crown of thorns as the head piece of the veil, and then I understood so clearly that He could only choose a bride who knew sorrow, suffering and death to self in order for the two to become One. "How can the two walk together except they be agreed?"

I just couldn't get over the fact that I was chosen to wear this veil and crown! But the Lord made me to understand that this vision was not about me, but the Bride as a whole and that I was to share this vision with her to make her ready for His soon coming! He's at the door! It's time for the wedding feast! (The tribulation to prove who the Bride is will soon begin.)
