Church’s origin is heavenly and his adorn is to His Bridegroom, and not to the strangers.


  • "And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband." (Revelation 21.2).
  • “House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD. ” (Proverbs 19.14)

Just as the prudent wife comes from the Creator, the true Church is something heavenly, supernatural and built up by Jesus Himself (Mt 16:18). As a good gift and a perfect gift comes from the Creator, she descends from heaven, the Father of lights (Jas 1:16, 17).

The Church does not need human adjustments. She is ornated by the Creator, who adorns her for Himself (and not for others, as it happens with the strange woman).

  • “For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil: but her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two edged sword.” (Proverbs 5.3,4).

That is why, many times, we are unable to see beauty in many of the members of the Church: the transformation promoted by the Creator in their lives does not aim at pleasing our flesh, but rather to fulfill His mission, which is often to discipline and treat us .

Although this may seem a little harsh, it is nevertheless necessary in order that our end can be sweet, smooth, good, perfect and pleasant (Rom 12.2). So, let's have a good day praying as shown below:

  • “Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities.” (Psalms 141.4,5).

You may believe: "It is better to listen to the rebuke of a wise man than for one to listen to the song of fools." (Ecclesiastes 7.5).
