The Lord has a taken a bride for Himself. Israel has a husband. At Sinai He pledged Himself to her with an everlasting love. “I will be your God and you shall be my people.” Sprinkled clean by the blood of the sacrifice, she answered, “We will do all that the Lord commands.” Yes, beloved the Lord has taken a bride for Himself. Israel has been bathed in the promises of Her God and Lord.
