- 3/20/23 COUNTDOWN
- Would you make any changes in your life if you knew the Rapture of the Bride of Christ was going to happen this April 9th, 2023?
Can I actually “Foretell” that the Rapture will be April 9th, 2023? No, I cannot but I can tell you the season. You need to read my book Hope for Those Left Behind for the details.
On my Bible Guy Web Site – page Movies – starting with Abraham. We have been watching the Bible Movies in order each evening: Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Moses…
The Bride of Christ, who is she and who is she not.
Much has been said about the Bride of Christ. It is evident that she exists somewhere and is acting in some capacity. The place nearest to the Bridegroom is the place which is held by the Bride. The Bride is composed of the full overcomers, who are very close in their fellowship with Christ and with each other. They are also in very near relationship to the Holy Ghost, who transmits to them the precious things of the Bridegroom.
Fear not! I am telling you this in advance so you will know that God is in control, has a plan and wants to get your attention.
What you are about to read was written over 100 years ago published in 1919 and The Bible Guy was given permission to republish. What a great honor to have this available today.

The world has always listened to the message of love; but to the Bride of Christ that message is peculiarly sweet and precious. Christ, the Bridegroom, speaks to no other as He speaks to His beloved bride. His yearning is beautifully expressed in the Songs of Solomon 5:2, “I sleep, but My heart waketh; it is the voice of My beloved that knocketh, saying, Open unto me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.”
From 1919 Book The First and The Last by Ira Surface, republished by Thomas Spencer The Bible Guy. CHAPTER 9
VII. REQUISITES OF THE BRIDE
5. A Great Love
It is but natural to think that those who will be the Bride of Christ must have a great love for Him-their Bridegroom. This brings us face to face with a practical fact. There will be many, at the time of the rapture, who are not loving Christ supremely, who nevertheless must be called believers, and members of His “Ekklesia” But we know Jesus expects an unwavering love. If we really love Him:
WE WILL BE LOOKING FOR HIM!
A bride who mixes up with other affections and is unfaithful to her lover, will not be worthy of him. If she loves him, she longingly looks for his coming. She keeps herself ready to receive him, and to be received by him. So, it is with the Bride of Christ. She will keep herself ready for His appearing at any moment.
The she must be expectant. We are told that “unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time.” This expectancy of Christ’s appearing begets readiness. Jesus said that one is a faithful and wise servant who does not say in his heart, “My Lord delayeth His coming.” We confidently believe that if we are ready to be caught up as the Bride of Christ, we will be ready for anything He has for us.
An expectant faith is the only faith that amounts to anything. “He that would come unto Christ must believe that He is, and that He is the rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.”
7. Soul Winner
Surely the Bride of Christ must be an efficient soul winner. She must have that element in her which will bring forth spiritual children. It is inconceivable that the one who is barren and unfruitful in spirituality can ever be the Bride of Christ. Jesus has provided the means by which we may all become proficient workers for the salvation of souls, and He surely expects His bride to be thus equipped. There are believers in Jesus who have never made an effort to win souls for Him; and for this very reason they are barren, and cannot be in the rapture.
