God Has A Plan
By Apostle/Prophetess Jacquelyn Fedor

9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, "Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife."
10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
She was released to come forth on the cross
, or I should say, He allowed the enemy through carnal man to set her free
! As Eve was taken from the side of Adam, the church was born as the enemy's sword pierced the side of the Lord, freeing her as the water and blood came forth
. What is God's plan for her? Let's look at the facts. Born to Adamic bloodlines
, the Holy Spirit draws her and introduces her to Jesus
, the Tree of Life
. He knows many will choose Him as their Lord
. They will not want to remain in the defeated condition they are as Adam's descendants
and live their lives as the cursed. Desiring to start life over, this time with Him, they choose to be born again
. After it is explained to them that their carnal self can die into His death in baptism
, and a new spiritual self be raised
through His resurrection that can see the Kingdom, they hopefully will choose new life
. That is what the water
is symbolic of.
4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
5 For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection,
6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.
Ephesians 5:26-27 explains:
26 that He (Jesus) might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word,
27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
This is what the blood symbolized.

24 So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.
12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword (of the enemy) , piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
9 And he said, "Go your way, Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
10 Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand.
1 And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals.
2 Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?"
3 And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it.
4 So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it.
5 But one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals." (He, Jesus, had won this honor on the cross.)
Revelation 19:13-16 also tells us,
13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.
15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
8 But to the Son He says:" Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
30 For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones.
31 "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh."
32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
