More Sermon Details:
There is a lot of discussion in amongst Christians today as to the identities of the the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ and just exactly whom the Church is made up of. Some say that the Marriage of the Lamb takes place on Earth, some say it's only a metaphor, while still others say the Bride of Christ is an invisible group ruling in Heaven right now.
On this episode of Rightly Dividing, we invite you to join us as we search the Scriptures to see if we can identify these 3 groups, and see exactly where they appear in the prophecy of the Last Days.
"This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church." Ephesians 5:32 (KJV)
Great Sermon! God Bless You- thank you for your heart for the Word of God! I, in all humility would like to point out a few things for your learning. Israel is always called the Bride (TWO become ONE). In Revelation, which is written TO Israel, the Bride and Christ will unite. We, are the BODY (ONE, in Him)-we are never called the Bride. The analogy of Genesis you make is your own twist on Genesis which you are free to make, but we are to rightly divide the Word. Jesus Christ came on earth to ISRAEL- he was not to come to the Gentiles at the time. In fact, the gospels are not TO the Christian church but wrap up the Old Testament and are FOR our learning as is the Old Testament - the Church began on the day of Pentecost and practically started when Israel rejected Christ with Stephen and the Word- The Mystery (all believers are the Body, the age of GRACE-not LAW, Christ in You the hope of glory,Jew and Gentile are one in Christ, given the holy spirit to every born again believer, evidenced by speaking in tongues(done in private prayer life only unless interpreted in a believers meeting-but I digress)-anyway We are not the Bride. Thank you !
