Song of Songs uncovers the depths of His love so we can come to the Bridegroom unveiled.
You were the joy
He saw when
Heb. 12:2b “for the joy set before Him, He endured the cross, scorning its shame.”Have you ever wondered how He could scorn the shame of the whipping, rejection and nakedness?

I could come to Him unveiled.

Prologue to For the Bride
Imagine a journey into the heart of One Bridegroom who chose you as His bride. Remember the early days of confusion, the sense of failure that accompanied the many mistakes you made. Experience again the discoveries you made along the way.
Journey through suffering, His and yours. Find the depth of relationship to which He calls you. See His sacrifice and the reasons for it in a new way and let the truth of His love for you permeate the depths of your being. For the Bride is poetry, pictures, scripture, story and narrative to bring you into the presence of the Bridegroom who purchased you.
So much is said about being His children and we understand so little about being the bride of His heart. Our ultimate destiny is to be His fully mature bride.
Revelation 19 which sums up history tells us, “His bride has made herself ready.” Revelation 21 shows us the ready bride. She is ready as history as we know it ends, and eternity begins. She is the reason for history and she is His. Meditate on these truths and discover a love relationship that will prepare you for eternity with Him.
Song 4:12 “You are a garden locked up, my sister, my bride; you are a spring enclosed, a sealed fountain.” NIV
Rev. 21: 2 “And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.”
Writer’s Digest Review
The best part of For the Bride by Author Debra Webster is the research of the scriptures throughout the book.
She shares the importance of God’s word as she writes: “But what is the only necessary thing?” “That is simple. Knowing me (God) is the only thing necessary. If you know me, you have everything. Let my word teach you. Let it replace your way of thinking and reveal me.” The author’s passion for writing this book is noteworthy. Her style and voice came out in each chapter.”
