The Church is the Bride, a picture of Marriage to the Groom

Marriage is a picture of what Jesus intends for His church- who happens to be His Bride. Throughout scripture, Jesus calls the church His Bride, except in one verse. It’s at the end, and consummation has occurred. We are now the WIFE!

What does it mean that the church is the Bride of Christ?

For I feel a divine jealousy for you, since I betrothed you to one husband, to present you as a pure virgin to Christ. (2 Corinthians 11:2).

And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (Revelation 21:2)

Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls, full of the seven last plagues, came and spoke with me, saying, “Come here, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” (Revelation 21:9).
