The purpose of the Church Triumphant is to make God's people aware of the awesome inheritance that awaits them in eternity. When Christ returns again He is coming for a Triumphant Church, a Church without spot or blemish. He is coming for a people who have not only been called to go to heaven, but also to become the bride of Christ.
To be the Bride of Christ is a high and holy calling. However, there are qualifications that must be met. Revelation 19:17 tells us that the Bride must prepare herself: "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his wife has made herself ready."
