Preparation For The Bride
Joining us today on Daily Faith is Pastor Scott Stewart of Agape Church in Little Rock, Arkansas. Pastor Scott holds BA and MA in Middle Eastern History and a Ph.D. in Hebraic Studies, specializing in Biblical Hebrew. Before he and his wife became the Senior Pastors of Agape Church in 2013, they were missionaries for 26 years around the globe and planted 11 churches. Pastor Scott has seen what the future looks like to live in a godless society from his travels worldwide. God has given Pastor Scott an astounding revelation on the preparation of the church and how it correlates to a great wedding to come. He is here to tell us what that wedding process looks like as Jesus is the Bridegroom, and we, the church, are the Bride. As a bride gets ready for the day of her wedding, so will it be when the Bridegroom comes for the church. The church has been silenced for too long in America; it’s time for the church to remove the mask and proclaim the truth of the Gospel. No matter what the circumstances may be, God has declared that the gates of Hell would not prevail against the church. God is searching to pour out His Spirit on those who are willing to host His presence. Are you ready? Our prayer for you today is that you will make your lives ready by kindling the fire in your heart for the Bridegroom to come.

The Orphans Hands is the heart of our outreach ministry in Eastern Europe. We have a village of homes in Moldova, called Vatra Village, and a home in Ukraine that houses up to fifty kids. In these poverty-stricken countries, the children are often kicked out of their homes by their loved ones, sent to grow up in an orphanage until they turn sixteen. The orphanages tell them they are nothing and no one loves them; that’s why they are there. Desperate and hopeless, once they are kicked out of the orphanage, they are subject to the false hopes and dangers of the traffickers. The Orphans Hands is the intersection point for these young kids. Upon coming to Vatra, we tell them that God has a plan and purpose for their lives. We show them the love of Jesus and teach them how there will be a great wedding, and Jesus is the Bridegroom coming for His Bride, the church. By experiencing the transforming love of Jesus, once orphaned, now missionaries for the Gospel, sharing the same love and grace they received.
