The spotless bride
The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather from his kingdom everything that causes sin as well as all lawbreakers. (Matthew 13:41 NET)
Again, we see that Jesus is calling us to be spotless for His return.
I've always read this as being Jesus sending His angels to remove all that causes sin in the earth - but no! It says "from His kingdom"! We are in His kingdom (His house) now, and we enter as slaves (to sin) but are called to become sons (who will dwell in His house forever) - John 8:35.
Let us get rid of everything in our lives that causes spot or wrinkle. Let us seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Let us sell all we have to buy the land that has the hidden treasure and let us find that treasure!
