Mystery of the Bride and Bridegroom

 Mystery of the Bride and Bridegroom

 

There are mysteries all around us in nature, astronomy, medicine and any other science you can imagine—mysteries which cannot be explained by man or any measuring apparatus in existence, but the greatest mysteries don’t always occur in science or medicine. They’re often found in religion and in our past; and nothing is more mysterious than the “Bride of Christ” mentioned in Scripture.

Most mainstream churches give little credence to scriptures containing the marriage of the church to Christ—passing them off as metaphor or analogies, spending very little time to consider the enormous implications involved and not understanding the gravity of their meaning and what they have to do with our individual relationship with Christ. The fog of misunderstanding coupled with man’s traditions bars the light of truth from reaching common church-going folks’ minds. Ministers in these same churches ignore certain scriptures with the utmost bias toward their institutional teachings, and dare not stray too far out into the weeds of individual thinking (or beliefs for that matter).

We’re then stuck with a conundrum, because scriptures within your Bible demonstrate the church of God in a marital relationship with Christ. It’s true…you cannot find the phrase “The bride of Christ” in your Bible. This phrase is stated in various other ways, which we will explore as we go along.

Ignoring the verses won’t make them disappear, or mean any less to God. So why build a theology absent this beautiful illustration of God’s love? Likely ‘because it threatens man’s hold on man’ is the simplest answer. Mainstream churches can’t afford to let their Christian congregations know the truth, because it would expose the lies they preach each and every week. It might open doors in the form of questions to mainstream ministers that can’t be arrogantly brushed away, nor twisted to fit some pagan-based theology. They would have to address the issue with ancient Israel and its culture in mind, and many ministers are ill-equipped with the knowledge to do that. Anything other than a short reference to Israel’s past is subject to connections that threaten their hold on man’s beliefs, so in fear, they don’t want to make those types of connections. It’s important that we do, though, because we only fear God, not men.

If we say, “We’re not afraid of what the scriptures teach, we have a place to begin and a chance to learn a beautiful teaching from our Creator, and a chance to open our minds to other teachings of Christ.” If you’re happy with what your minister teaches each week and you follow him without question, maybe this isn’t for you; however, before you leave, let me add one more thing. Men—even the greatest of them—are flawed. They make mistakes. The greater the man, the greater the mistakes that are made. Preachers and ministers make mistakes. It happens all the time, and we often see it exposed on television. I know we don’t want to think that ministers could deceive us, but they are men, and there are none (including me) that aren’t flawed. With this in mind, why blindly follow men in pulpits without question? Why swallow their words and teachings hook, line and sinker without checking them out, when it’s so blatantly obvious that they are contradicting Scripture? Does man’s tradition make you feel so comfortable and secure that Scripture be hanged? Doesn’t the word of your Creator hold more weight than man’s words? You have to answer those questions for yourself. We’re going to proceed and discover this special relationship man has with God. Don’t come along if you wish, but remember, you’ll not hear this from your minister in Sunday morning worship, so here’s your chance to learn a beautiful lesson.

 

The Hebrew Wedding

 

            To begin to understand this relationship with Christ better, we must first understand how a Hebrew wedding was preformed in ancient Israel. Why is this important? It will become very clear as we go along. The act of marriage first begins with a betrothal between the bride and bridegroom. We are betrothed to Christ (His church). What was the process that took place to make that happen?

 Much of the following is an excerpt of the book, Weddings of Ancient Israel—A Picture of the Messiah When a young man desired to marry a young woman in ancient Israel, the Father would prepare a contract or covenant to present to the young woman’s father. The contract showed his willingness to provide for the young woman, and described the terms under which he would propose marriage. The most important part of the contract was the “bride price”—the price that the young man was willing to pay to marry the young woman. This payment was to be made to the young woman’s father in exchange for his permission for the couple to marry. The bride price was generally quite high. Sons were considered to be more valuable than daughters, since they were physically more able to share in the work of farming and other heavy labor. The bride price compensated the young woman’s family for the cost to raise a daughter, and also indicated the love that the young man had for his bride-to-be (she was very valuable to the young man)! The Father of the bridegroom would present the contract to the bride’s father to seal the deal. Now let’s see how Christ fulfilled that part of the institution.Jesus came to the home of His bride (earth) to present His marriage contract. The marriage contract provided by Jesus is the new covenant, which provides for the forgiveness of sin of God’s people. Jesus paid the bride price with His life. At the Last Supper, when breaking bread, He spoke of the price He was paying, “This is my body given for you.” (Luke 22:20). Hebrews 8:15 makes it clear that Jesus died as the price for the new covenant: “Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance— now that He has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant (other Scripture references include 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, 1 Peter 1:18-19, Acts 20:28 and John 3:29).The marriage contract—the new covenant—is described throughout Scripture: “This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time,” declares the LORD, “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people…they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest.” Jeremiah 31:31-34 adds, “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”  HEBREW WEDDING PRACTICE: THE CUPIf the bride price was agreeable to the young woman’s father, the young man would pour a glass of wine for the young woman. If she drank the wine, it would indicate her acceptance of the proposal. The couple would then be betrothed. Betrothal was legally binding, just like a marriage. The only difference was that the marriage was not yet consummated. A typical betrothal period was one to two years. During this time, the bride and bridegroom would each prepare for the marriage and wouldn’t see each other.Let’s see how Christ enacts the fulfillment of the cup.Just as the bridegroom would pour a cup of wine for his bride to drink to seal the marriage contract, so Jesus poured wine for His disciples. His words described the significance of the cup in representing the bride price for the marriage contract. He then took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with you in my Father’s kingdom.” (Matt. 26:28-29) The disciples drank from the cup, thus accepting the contract. HEBREW WEDDING PRACTICE: GIFTS FOR THE BRIDENext, the bridegroom would present the bride with special gifts, the purpose of which was to show the bridegroom’s appreciation of the bride. They were also intended to help her remember him during the long betrothal period.  JESUS’ FULFILLMENT: GIFTS FOR THE BRIDEThe gifts that Jesus gave us are the gifts of the Holy Spirit: “We know that we live in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.” (1 John 4:13). Jesus described His gift by saying, “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:26) HEBREWANCIENT WEDDING PRACTICE: MIKVEHThe bride would next partake of a “Mikveh,” or cleansing bath. Mikveh is the same word used for baptism. To this day in conservative Judaism, a bride cannot marry without a Mikveh.JESUS’ FULFILLMENT: MIKVEHThe Mikveh that Jesus provided for His bride was baptism in the Holy Spirit. On one occasion, while eating with them, He gave this command, “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 1:4). A complete baptism is required, with both the Holy Spirit and water, a complete emersion in each. Water baptism symbolizes death, a complete burial is required. Accepting the holy spirit right after the baptism is the best time because you emerge pure and sinless, if only for a brief time.  HEBREW WEDDING PRACTICE: PREPARING A PLACEDuring the betrothal period, the bridegroom would prepare a wedding chamber for the honeymoon— typically built in the bridegroom’s father’s house. The wedding chamber had to be built to the groom’s father’s specifications and had to be a beautiful place to bring the bride, as the bride and groom were to spend seven days there. The bridegroom could go for his bride only when his father approved. If the bridegroom was asked when the wedding was to be, he might well say, “It is not for me to know, only my father knows.” JESUS’ FULFILLMENT: PREPARING A PLACEJust as a bridegroom would have told his bride that he would prepare a place for her, so Jesus told His disciples, “In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” (John 13:1-3) In ancient Israel, the bridegroom could get his bride only after his father approved. Similarly, Jesus said, “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come.” (Mark 13:32-33) HEBREW WEDDING PRACTICE: A WAITING BRIDE CONSECRATEDWhile the bridegroom was preparing the wedding chamber, the bride was considered to be consecrated—set apart or “bought with a price.” If she traveled outside her home, she would wear a veil so that others would know she was betrothed. During this time, she prepared herself for marriage. She likely had saved money all her life for this time. She would purchase expensive cosmetics and learn to apply them to make herself more beautiful for the bridegroom. She wouldn’t know when her groom would come for her, so she always had to be ready. Since bridegrooms typically came for their brides in the middle of the night to “steal them away,” the bride would need to have her lamp and belongings ready at all times. Her sisters or bridesmaids would also be waiting, keeping their lamps trimmed in anticipation of the late-night festivities.JESUS’ FULFILLMENT: A WAITING BRIDE CONSECRATEDWe as God’s people are now consecrated or set apart, waiting for the return of our bridegroom. We should be spending this time preparing ourselves for Jesus’ return. Jesus used a parable of 10 virgins waiting for the bridegroom to describe the need to be alert for His return. “At that time, the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom…the foolish ones took their lamps, but did not take any oil with them. The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’ Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, our lamps are going out.’ They replied, ‘No. There may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’ While on their way to buy oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready accompanied him to the wedding banquet, and the door was shut. Later, the others arrived. “Sir! Sir!” they said, “Open the door for us!” He replied, “I tell you the truth, I don’t know you.” Therefore, keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.  Addendum: The oil in the lamps is the works we accomplish in the name of the bridegroom. “I know your works,” Christ says to the seven churches in the book of Revelations. Chapter 14:13 of Revelations reads: “Christ says our works follow us wherever we go, even into death.” Works are the clothing described in Revelations 19:8 as the clothing we wear in the presence of Christ. Of course we have to make ourselves ready, or we’ll stand before our creator naked and afraid. HEBREW WEDDING PRACTICE: BRIDEGROOM COMES FOR HIS BRIDEWhen the bridegroom’s father deemed the wedding chamber ready, he would tell the bridegroom that all was ready and instruct him to get His bride. The bridegroom would abduct his bride secretly, like a thief at night, and would take her to the wedding chamber. As the bridegroom approached the bride’s home, he would shout and blow the shofar (ram’s horn trumpet) so that she had a warning to gather her belongings to take with her. The bridegroom and his friends would come into the bride’s house to get her and the bridesmaids. JESUS’ FULFILLMENT: BRIDEGROOM COMES FOR HIS BRIDEJust as the bridegroom would come for his bride in the middle of the night with a shout and the sound of a shofar, so the Lord will come for us. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God…and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore, encourage each other with these words:”Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17) HEBREW WEDDING PRACTICE: THE FATHER MUST BLESS THE MARRIAGE AT HIS HOUSE;The bride and groom would return to his father’s house for the wedding. Among some Jews today, it is customary for the wedding couple to fast on their wedding day—it is considered a day of forgiveness. As a couple prepares for a new life together, this practice may enhance the spirituality of the day. It may also serve as a marker of the change taking place in their new lives. This takes place at the father’s house, then the bride and groom enter into a huppah for seven days, which is called a chuppa today. It’s a canopy raised upon four post, which represents the temporary wedding tent of ancient times; a place where the bride and bridegroom spent seven days after their marriage.   JESUS’ FULFILLMENT: WEDDING DAY AND MARRIAGE SUPPERThe bride is whisked away into the Father’s house for the marriage in her gown of fine white linen of the saints (Revelations 19:6). In 1Corintians 15:50, we see the bride making a transformation for the purpose of the marriage, because God’s law states that ‘kind must marry kind.’ In 2 Corinthians 5:17, we began this process long before Christ’s return. It began with our baptism into the church of God. In Leviticus 16:1-34, we see the ancient atonement service for Israel—probably the most misunderstood chapter in the Bible. This is the fulfillment of the Day of Atonement, and Christ taking his bride to the Father’s throne for acceptance of the marriage with Christ.  Let’s review a few things and use common reasoning. The first thing we see is a high priest. Who is the high priest? Jesus Christ, according to Hebrews chapter 10 “And all things are a shadow of things to come.” The two goats are both represented in each one of us. They are identical in every respect, you can’t tell them apart because they represent the same entity. Leviticus 16:16 reveals that the goats are for the people of Israel. When applied to us, we are one person before our baptism, another afterwards. Our sins go away ‘as far as the east is from the west’ the old you DIES, the new you begins a spiritual life with Christ. In Leviticus 17:11, it says that the life is in the blood. Where does the high priest take the blood of the goat that was sacrificed? To be sprinkled on the mercy seat? The high priest (Christ) takes the life (the new you) to the throne of the Father (the mercy seat). What a beautiful service to remind us year by year of this glorious time in the kingdom of heaven. HEBREW WEDDING PRACTICE: SEVEN DAYS IN WEDDING CHAMBERThe bridegroom would take his bride to the wedding chamber, where they would spend seven days, while the bridegroom’s friend would wait outside the door of the chamber. When the marriage was consummated, the bridegroom would tell his friend through the door, and the friend would announce it to the assembled guests. Guests would then celebrate for seven days, at which time the bride and bridegroom would emerge from the wedding chamber.  JESUS’ FULFILLMENT: SEVEN DAYS IN THE WEDDING CHAMBERSome believe in Ancient Jewish eschatology that taught of a seven year “Time of trouble” that would come upon the earth before the coming of the Messiah. During that time of trouble, the righteous would be resurrected and would enter the wedding chamber, where they would be protected from the time of trouble. Today, that seven year period is referred to as the tribulation. The more important lesson, though, is the time the bride and groom are in the wedding chamber together—a time of great learning—knowing what Christ knows about being part of God’s family, and learning how to use that new power to teach and guide the rest of the world. It’s important, because there will be children—billions and billions of them, a countless number. In Revelations 20:11, “The great white throne judgment” of those that didn’t become the bride (1st resurrection), 1,000 years later are resurrected and given a chance to become a part of the family as well, as the children of Christ and His bride. In Ezekiel 37:1 (the valley of dry bones), we see a physical resurrection taking place, and they say in verse 11, “Our hope is lost, and we ourselves are cut off.” Why would they say that if they had just been resurrected from the dead? Because they didn’t come up in the 1st resurrection as spirit, and they will know immediately that they missed a great opportunity to become part of the bride.Christ says in Revelations 3:21, “To him who overcomes, I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.” You can’t sit on any King’s throne unless you are related. You become related to Christ through His church (bride), and that is the only route you can take. It’s a very narrow path. HEBREW WEDDING PRACTICE: UNVEILING OF THE BRIDEThe veil was worn from the betrothal all the way though the ceremonies, and even into the huppah. No one could see the face of the bride, and no one supposedly knows her identity. The church of God today is hidden to the world at large—veiled in a shroud of mystic ignorance from a world blinded by Christ himself. This is why I speak to them in parables: “Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.” (Matthew 13:13) After seven days in the wedding chamber, the bride and groom emerge on the eighth day, and the veil is lifted to the world for the first time. Not until then will Christ’s true church be known to the vast millions that were alive (and those that live). It is at that time that man will be able to go freely to Christ without the interference of Satan. Satan will be bound and put away out of the influence of man, (Revelations 20:1-3) In Revelations 22: 12-17, we see the bride extending the same gesture as Christ did on the Last Great Day. Man and wife say to the world, “Come to us, the light, the truth, the wisdom that comes from unfettered knowledge. Zechariah 14:16 tells of a time in the millennium, after the earth has made its transformation, that those who survived will be keeping the Feast of Tabernacles, a high holy day of God. If they don’t, they will surely suffer. Only the most trusted and the most loyal of all mankind will be part of the bride. In I John 14:15, Christ said “If you love me, keep my commandments,” but man says the commandments are no longer relevant. Is that a true statement? Some say, “Christ came and fulfilled the laws, so they are no longer necessary; they are stipulations in the betrothal contract, stipulations for the bride to follow. Christ could not do away with the laws without doing away with the marriage contract, and He wouldn’t do that. If these days are important to the bride and groom in the millennium after the tribulations, and they were important to God in the past, why wouldn’t they be important today? It says in Hebrews 13:8 that ‘Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.’ What do these days represent to man, and why they are so important?Malachi 3:6 reads: “For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore you sons of Jacob are not consumed.” Wow! God doesn’t change. Christ is the same in the past, present and future. Is there something we’ve missed in Sunday school? Is there something that was left out when it comes to the traditions we keep? Why does God say in Leviticus 23 that these days are His? Could it be that we can see His plan through these days? The word “convocations” can mean rehearsal, so what would we be rehearsing? A wedding, perhaps? Could these annual holy days listed in Leviticus be showing us what all this is about—the purpose for man’s creation, for the sacrifice of Christ and all that is in-between? Has the world missed this at its own peril?What do the following days represent?Weekly SabbathPassoverDays of Unleavened BreadThe Wave Sheath OfferingPentecostFeast of TrumpetsAtonementFeast of TabernaclesLast Great Day Let’s visit them one-by-one, with the Hebrew wedding as reference while it’s still fresh in our minds. WEEKLY SABBATH. It’s a time of rest and focusing on Christ, the Bridegroom) and His creation. It’s a time of fellowship, coming together, foreseeing a time in the future when all of God’s people will be together in His kingdom under Christ rule.  PASSOVERPassover teaches us that Jesus Christ is our Passover lamb—sinless and blameless, without spot or imperfection. Christ became human, divested Himself of all celestial glory, gave His life so that the sins of humanity could be forgiven and the death penalty removed. Passover is the time that we renew our covenant with Christ by eating bread and drinking wine that represents Christ’s body and blood, as well as following Christ’s example of washing the feet of others. This day also represents the marriage agreement between Christ and His bride (the church). 1Cor.5:7; 1Pt.1:18-20; Rom. 3:25; Duet. 16:1; Matt. 26:26-28; Mark 14:12, 22-24; John 13:4-5, 14-15 UNLEAVENED BREADOn the 15th day of the month of Abib, we are to eat unleavened bread for seven days to represent getting the leaven (or sin) out of the body, cleansing us for our role as the Bride of Christ at his return. Examples in the New Testament are in Acts 12:3; Acts 20:6 and 1Cor. 5:8. WAVE SHEAF OFFERINGThis represents the resurrection of Christ our King (the bridegroom) going to be accepted by the Father as the new creature He became, and the dowry He offered in the form of His sacrifice and blood. He had to be untouched and clean of any contaminates of this earth…an unblemished sacrifice. The perfect bridegroom for His church (the bride), He was the first of His kind, a new creature. He was the first fruits of this plan. Lev. 23:9-14, I cor. 15:20, Col. 1:15-18, 2 Cor. 5:17PENTECOSTPentecost—or Feast of Weeks—is celebrated as the date of the formation of the church and making the Holy Spirit available to all mankind. It also is a reminder that we were once in the bondage of sin until Christ brought us out. It represents the cleansed saints and the body of Christ making herself ready for Christ’s return. It also identifies who Christ church is and who He is working with today. This feast was continually held by all the apostles and converted Christians well after Christ’s death, showing that these feasts were not done away and were continually observed throughout the generations. Examples: Acts 2:1; Acts 20:16; 1Cor. 16:8 TRUMPETSThe blowing of the trumpet is a signal or announcement of an event—a signal that something is coming, an alert. It pictures the day that Christ returns to earth to get His bride (the church). Example: Rev. 19:6; 1Cor. 15:49; 1Thess. 4:16-17 ATONEMENTThis holy day is illustrated by fasting (abstaining from both food and water from sundown to sundown). The Hebrew wedding represents the acceptance of the bride (the church) by the father in heaven. When Christ returns, it will represent the acceptance of the saints as the bride of Christ by the Holy Father in Heaven, and the joining together at the marriage supper. Examples: Acts 27:9; Matt.22:1; Rev. 19:8 FEAST OF TABERNACLESThis feast has been observed since Israel’s people were freed as slaves from Egypt. It is celebrated by staying seven days in a temporary dwelling (Chuppah), and is a rehearsal as newlyweds with Christ. It represents a time of great blessing for saints and the world. It is the rehearsal of Christ and the church for seven days, where the full word of Christ is revealed to the saints. It represents the consummation of the relationship between the church and Christ. Examples: John 7:8-10; Zech 14: 16-21; Rev 3:20-22; Rev. 22:12-17 LAST GREAT DAYThis day represents the groom and bride emerging from their temporary dwelling. The bride had been veiled to the entire world until this very moment. Once the church has been revealed when the veil is lifted, a great celebration will occur, unlike any other celebration up to this time. This is the first resurrection—the one the world awaits with great anticipation. Now the work begins for those who have become the priest and kings in the Kingdom of God. Examples: Rev. 1:6; Rev. 5:10; 1Pt 2:5You may ask yourself ‘Why would the Father and Christ go to such extremes?’ They are reproducing themselves, they are making a family. They don’t want to be alone any longer. They choose this as the way to make a family from their creation. Christ breathed life into His future bride, gave them rules to follow and guided them when possible. You also might ask ‘Why not just create them like they did the angels?’ Fair question, but they would be created beings, not born into the family. They wouldn’t be their flesh and blood, so-to-speak.Christ wants this to happen more than anything else. He gave up being God and took the form of a man to make this happen. He ended his eternal life and risked everything. He was born again as a new creature—the first of the kind—and the church (bride) will follow. There will be billions, if not trillions of children.

If this idea of us becoming part of the bride bothers you because it may offend your manly instincts, remember the words of Christ, “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” (Mark 8:38) How do we know how spirit interacts with spirit? We are a form of beings in a certain dimension, separate from the world of spirit and God’s. In John 3:1-13 it says, “There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, ‘Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.’ ”

Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”

Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”Nicodemus answered and said to Him, “How can these things be?”

10 Jesus answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things? 11 Most assuredly, I say to you, We speak what We know and testify what We have seen, and you do not receive Our witness. 12 If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things? 13 No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven.

It’s a world unlike the one we live in at this moment. It’s a time we look forward to, and it’s the family of God we want to be a part of. I’ve given you this look into the plan of God. Hopefully it will help you see much more, as this is the most important doctrine man can come to understand; however, it’s always up to you to go further than you thought you ever could.  For more interesting lessons, read The Sabbath Day by Ron Harmon.
