THE BRIDE OF CHRIST IS THE HIGHEST REWARD OF THE NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH. Over and over in Scripture we hear the words similar to this statement: “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” (Revelation 22:12) We are saved by grace and through faith but the rewards of the Lord are given to those that earn them. The Bride is the highest reward and the New Heaven and New Earth is the least reward. If you are saved, “Born Again,” and an“Overcomer” of this world, sin, and the devil, then you will have eternal life in the New World. Remember the Lord’s words,”He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. “(Revelation 21:7)

Apostle Paul was explicit about the fact of many believers losing their rewards because they were shabby in their lifestyle and labors. The Holy Ghost spoke using his anointed lips and pen stating, “But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. ” (I Corinthians 3:10b-13) You will decide by your surrender and dedication what your reward or rewards will be. It’s exciting to consider our Wonderful Lord honoring us with His rewards and it’s sad to think of losing what we could have inherited. “If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.” (1 Corinthians 3: 14-15) This is plain truth, so make your life count for Him.

Apostle Paul was clearly dedicated to receiving the highest possible reward for his lifes work He said, “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13-14) Note the words this great Apostle spoke, “The PRIZE of the high calling” was his goal and passion.

Now we must get it in our heads that living in the city “New Jerusalem” is for the Bride, those with the highest reward. John the Revelator said, “And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.” (Revelation 21:24-27) Here is a multitude of precious souls, saved and receiving many rewards, but not the highest one and the prize

I HAVE DETRIMINED LONG AGO, LIKE THE APOSTLE PAUL, TO GIVE UP EVERYTHING FOR THE “HIGH CALLING OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS.” To be saved and live in the New Heaven and New Earth is worth this whole world a thousand times, but to be His Bride for Eternity is the ultimate “REWARD”. He has chosen you but you must make the sacrifice. You are saved by Grace but you will be rewarded according to your sacrifice and great devotions to Him.

  1. Thanks very much, Pastor Joseph for clarifying a topic rarely articulated. We are saved by believing in Jesus’ atoning sacrifice for our sins. That belief is the ONLY WORK we need to do (John 3:16-18; 6:28-29).

    We are rewarded according to any other works we do as a result of that belief.

    It is unfortunate that many churches still teach that we must add anything to Jesus’ sacrifice of himself to “complete our salvation.”

    I see that as a real insult to Jesus because it says what he did wasn’t enough!

  2. Amen, Brother.
    Preach it and proclaim the truth. We work for the right to be kings and priest in His kingdom. We will be rewarded for the work we do that is built on the Rock. Nothing else will endure the revealing truth of the test by Holy Fire. Only the person with Christ in his heart will stand, but if no works have been accomplished, he will be saved, as though by fire. We don’t know what the position will be in the kingdom for a person who has done nothing for God. I am reminded of the parable of the talents. To me, the most valuable thing on this earth to a Holy God, is His Word. If you don’t share it with others and profess Jesus Christ in your daily living and reach out to your brethren to spread the Good News of the coming Kingdom of God and the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, God will hold you accountable. How will that play out? Note the end of the lazy servant in the talents. To keep what Jesus has done for each of us hidden in the ground is almost inexcusable in my opinion. By grace we are saved, but we are expected to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ as humanly possible this side of glory and to be anything but an ambassador of Jesus Christ is folly on a redeemed sinner by grace. Let’s all get to working spreading the Gospel around to our fellow man.

  3. Thank you for your word of truth to my soul. The King is at hand and praise all the laborers in the field to bring in the lost from the hands of the lies of the enemy. I stand on the rock and will serve my King. I will not stop working on my wedding dress!


    Dear Joe Chambers,

    I never heard anything like that before about some members of the Church of Jesus being excluded from the Bride of Christ, and being excluded from the New Jerusalem! according to the bible, all the Church age saints will go up in the Rapture, and will be of the Bride of Christ, and will enter the New Jerusalem. New Jerusalem is much bigger than any city ever built. Its base would cover about 2 million square miles or about 2/3 as big as the USA. If it was packed to a population density like NYC, it would hold 40 billion people, or 6 times what the earth’s population is. All Church age saints are the Bride of Christ. The only saints that are not part of the Bride of Christ are the Old Testament Saints, the Tribulation Saints (those who come to Christ during Tribulation), and those born in the Millenial Kingdom. If you go up in the Rapture from the CHurch Age, you are part of the Bride of Christ. Even within the Church there are varying degrees of rewards from Christ at the Judgement seat. Though all the Church will live in the New Jerusalem, NOT ALL WILL BE IN THE SAME NEIGHBORHOODS within the New Jerusalem. Some would be in the low income neighborhoods in that city, while the best saints will have the best neighborhoods. If you are a super saint, you will live in the wealthiest neighborhoods. If you are the weakest saint, you will live in the poorer neighborhoods, but still in that city. Of saints that get crowns, some will have very high positions as regional kings, while others might be governors, then some might be mayors.

    All members of the True Church will go up in the rapture to be the Bride of Christ, to live in the New Jerusalem, though not all in the same neighborhoods.

    NOT ALL PEOPLE IN ORGANIZED CHURCHES WILL GO UP IN RAPTURE, BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE IN RELIGIUS ORGANIZATIONS ARE NOT REALLY SAVED. Most of the people left behind will join the False Church or the Prostitute Church of Revelation 17. Though some might accept Jesus and become Tribulation Saints. When I asked my uncle Dick a Methodist Minister how many members of his congregation were saved and how amy were unsaved, he said he thoght that 75 % were unsaved, and that 25% were saved. If that is true then most members of “Cristian” organizations are not saved. I am not sure of what percentages of people in denominations are saved or not saved. If Dick is right, the perhaps 75% of members of mainline denominations are not save. So maybe 25% from those congregations go up at rapture. Of the more conservative evangelical denominations such as Pentecostals or Baptists, the migght be a 50% saved ratio. In some small independent churches, maybe even 100% of cetain cogregations might be saved. Conservative Churches are more likely to have a higher saved ratio than the liberal ones. In some liberal churches such as the Metropolitan Community Church (the gay denomination) or the Unitarians, all might be totally 100% unsaved.

    Remember All saints of Church age that go up in rapture are the Bride of Christ, and will go to the New Jerusalem. The only saints outside of the Bride of Christ, are the Old Testament Saints, Tribulation Saints, and the Millenial born.

    nice work you’ve done. Good content and i enjoy spending 15 minutes a day reading all the new posts. Good job, thanx !!

  6. I have to agree with Mr. Keith Black. All church age saints are considered the Bride of Christ. It is in fact a ver presigious elect time frame to be in and choose him as Savior. I also agree that although we may be part of the bride, some of us will have a smaller reward than others. I don’t necessarily think it depends on exactly HOW much you do or give, but if you answer God’s call to be helpful to others, remain as focused as possible on him through out your life, and be as obedient as you can while still in human flesh. The lesser receivers of rewards I feel will be those who once upon a time got saved, but have revelled in a unholy lifestyle, be it homosexual, drug addictions, life of crime, etc., etc. That lifestyle may have been their whole focus, forgetting that Jesus called them to do better things once they believed in him. All Christian People fall from time to time, but some fall very far and never seem to get back up again. It is our job as Saints to help the other fallen saints find their footing again.

  7. I don’t write many responses, but i did a few searching and wound up here WINNING THE PRIZE OF THE “BRIDE OF CHRIST” Paw Creek Ministries. And I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Is it only me or does it look like some of these comments look like written by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing at other places, I’d like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
