Illustration: Second Coming

In the June 17, 2010, edition of his Turning Point online devotional, David Jeremiah writes: "The Diamond Wedding Gown, offered exclusively by a chic bridal salon in Beverly Hills, can be yours for only $12 million. It's the most expensive wedding dress in the world, and it's bedecked with 150 carats of diamonds. If that's over your budget, you might consider the world's second most expensive wedding dress. It comes in at a mere $8.5 million and features 1,000 pearls and a rare five-carat white gold diamond.

"Save your money. Those dresses are rags compared to the wedding garments of the Bride of Christ, which He purchased at the enormous price of His own blood.

"In the Gospels, Jesus compared His Second Coming to a Groom returning for His Bride (Matthew 25:1-13). In Revelation 19, the angels announced our Lord's return with this glad refrain: ‘Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come.' In Revelation 21, the New Jerusalem is described as descending to the New Earth like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.

"Talk about a Diamond Wedding Gown! Let's look forward to that Day."
