Let The Spirit And The Bride Say Come

THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG
One day as I was pottering in the kitchen, the words “Let the Spirit and the bride say come” popped into my mind. I sat down and opened my Bible to the book of Revelation and searched (with the help of google!) until I found the verse in Revelation chapter 22. This chapter sets the scene of the new heaven and new earth which we await. The call is for all to come to the water of life; Jesus, and for His bride (the Church) to remain spotless and ready for His return.
The chorus of the song is taken from the Lord's prayer and the empowering of the church at Pentecost. It is a cry for God to establish His Kingdom and purify His church. As I sat writing this song, the parable of the ten virgins from Matthew chapter 25 came to mind. Jesus tells us to watch and pray because we do not know the hour of His return.
How important it is that we have the oil of the Holy Spirit so we are not like the foolish virgins who didn't have oil in their lamps and were not permitted to the wedding. I remember as a child singing at school “Give me oil in my lamp keep me burning” but never really understanding the meaning. As the bride of Christ may we be ready for and hasten His return!
