PhilipJames;4 Discussion? The Bride of Christ is the Church! how else could she be HIS body? The 2 made one flesh....(Eph 5:23-32) PJ[/QUOTE said:Hi and the BUBBLE has burst here !
#1 , In the Body there ( Gal 3:28 ) CANNOT be Male nor Female as the EKKLESIA / ASSEMBLY is the Body of Christ
#2 , How can the Head of the Body marry it's members ?
Is not the husband the head of HIS wife? Eph 5:31-32
"For this reason a man shall leave (his) father and (his) mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh."
This is a great mystery, but I speak in reference to Christ and the church
#4 , Israel is the Bride , John 3:29 !1
$5 , Then who are the FRIENDS of the Bridegroom , in verse 29 ?
the 'friend' of the bridegroom is John the Baptist who introduced the Groom to His bride.
#7 , Just when does the Ceremony take place ?
At the last supper. And forever in eternity!
#8 , After the Great Tribulation , don't you see !!
God married HIS people as HE promised to do. Happily for the gentiles, we too are invited to join in that union!
Come to the wedding feast before the doors are shut!
