“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
The Lord reaches out to the Soul; His hands bear the signs of crucifixion. His word flows down to earth bringing blessing: Isaiah 62:10-11 “Pass through, pass through the gates! Prepare the way for the people. Build up, build up the highway! Remove the stones. Raise a banner for the nations. The Lord has made proclamation to the ends of the earth: “Say to the Daughter of Zion, “See, your Savior comes! See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him.””
Four angels with the heads of an eagle, an ox, a lion and a man represent the four Gospels. The olive branches on the robe of the King of Glory are in bloom. It is springtime. Who will respond to His call and bear fruit into the Kingdom of God? God’s eyes are fixed on His Beloved Bride – the Church.
The Beloved Soul has given up her selfishness. She says: “Run, my lover, run to those who do not know You. Let every soul taste Your love and believe that she is really the Beloved of Christ!”
