{ Day 138 }

After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, "I tell you the truth, one of you is going to betray me." His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant. One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him. Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, "Ask him which one he means." Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, "Lord, who is it?" —John 13:21-25

King David is just one example of a man who was impacted by a life of deep intimacy with God. However, the one who had the greatest revelation of the Bridegroom and the bride was the apostle John. Consider John's life. He rebuked people who cast out demons because they were not in his group. He asked Jesus to let him sit at His right hand forever. Imagine, he wanted to be the main guy over everyone forever at the right hand of Jesus in eternity. At times, this apostle rebuked people, but he was also the man who put his head on the Lord's breast. To be a man who lays His head on the Lord's breast and receives His embrace will set your heart ablaze.


Lord, teach me to love You as David loved You. Help me to seek Your embrace as John did. Give me a revelation of Your glory, and set my heart ablaze in Your love.

The Lord Jesus entrusted the revelation of the
bride to the apostle John.
