2 Peter 1:3-4 

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Just before Israel became a nation, there were all kinds of Jews going back to their homeland and settling in Palestine. One thing that many of them had to do—from the young to the old—was sacrifice everything they had, to fight for their new nation. They became partakers of the fight for Israel, even though it wasn’t a nation yet. Their struggle and sacrifice brought forth the country of Israel as we know it today.

The Bride of Christ has been given invaluable promises from the Word, that we can be partakers of the divine nature of Christ, through the Holy Spirit. The word “partaker” that Peter used in his writing means: “a companion, a sharer of, or a partner in”. This means that when the promises in the Word become a reality to us, we are sharing as partners in the divine nature of Christ.

We have to give everything to Christ, just like the people had to do for the nation of Israel. We must sacrifice everything we have to be a partaker of the divine nature of Christ. By this, we can escape the corruption of the world.

Examine how much of yourself you have given to Christ. Because it is the end time, the necessity of self examination becomes very real for the Bride. Let the Lord search your heart.

64-1205 - “The Identified Masterpiece Of God”

You've got to stay with that Word, to be the Bride. If you're in the Bride, you're in the Word, and the Word is in you. And the Word that reflected God through Christ, reflects the same God through you. Amen. Amen means "so be it." So, so be it. I believe it to be the Truth. You have to be identified with Him.

Now, if I'm going to be a real genuine American, if I'm going to be a true citizen of this nation, I have to be identified with it. I have to be all she ever was, right or wrong. I have to be all she is, right or wrong; all she ever will be, right or wrong. I have to be identified with this nation, if I'm going to be an American. Is that right? In her glory or her shame, freedom or flame, whatever she is, I must be the maker of her immortality. I must stand as a unit. Everything she is, I am. Everything she ever was, I am. All she ever will be, I must be partakers of her. That's right.
