["For Everything that was written in the past was written to teach us..." Romans 15:4]
If the bible states that the past scriptures are given to us to teach us, it is because the same events must happen again and it is through understanding the rights and wrongs of the people in that time that we may be sure not to make the same mistakes.
When Christ came he rebuked the people who claimed to know the Bible so well yet denied him:
["You diligently study the scriptures because you think that by them you have eternal life, these are the scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life." John 5:39]
What about nowadays?
The Bible clearly testifies about the Savior who was, is and has come in these last days to give us eternal life. Just as Christ appeared in the flesh 2000 years ago and testified of himself through the scriptures, so now the time has come to learn from these very scriptures of the fulfillment that is taking place in these last days.
["..the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the saints. To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery which is Christ in you, the hope of glory." Colossians 1:26]
["...in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." Colossians 2:2]
The Bible speaks of Christ being a mystery. Jesus Christ is not a mystery to us, however, apostle Paul spoke of an even greater mystery in Christ that he himself was able to testify to.
Christ = the image of God. (2 Corinthians 4:4)
God has two images - ["Then God said, let Us make man in Our image, in our likeness....male and female he created them." Genesis 1:26-27]
male image of God appeared already....not a mystery.
female image of God?
["Come I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb. And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God." Revelation 21:9]
["But the Jerusalem that is above is free and she is our Mother." Galatians 4:26]
Apostle Paul testified to the Jerusalem above (heaven), the heavenly Jerusalem, who is the bride, the wife of the Lamb(Christ). He was able to see and understand that we have a heavenly Mother at that time, because he was taken up to the third heaven (2 Cor 12:1). In the Apostolic age, Heavenly Mother had not been revealed to the saints, she remained a mystery that was kept hidden. Now that we are living in the age of the Holy Spirit, this mystery has been revealed to us. She has to come to this earth in the last days as prophesied, "I saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.." (Rev 21:2).
["Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory, for the wedding of the Lamb has come and his bride has made herself ready.." Revelation 19"7]
Let us not make the same mistake the Saducees and Pharisees did in the time of Jesus Christ, though they studied the scriptures so diligently, they still denied his existence, because they didnt truly believe in what the scriptures said. Through their mistakes we can be taught to have hope for heaven through which we are given the promise of in Christ. The bible clearly testifies of our Mother who is the source of eternal life in these last days. Just as Christ called the people 2000 years ago, so now it is the Spirit and the Bride (Rev 22:17) who are calling us to give us the free gift of the water of life (eternal life).
The Spirit and the Bride are true God Almighty, from Genesis to Revelation, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
