The church is the body of Christ, NOT the bride of Christ.

The church is the body of Christ, NOT the bride of Christ.

The ‘bride, the Lamb’s wife’ is a future city promised to Israel Revelation 21:2 KJV  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. Revelation 21:9-10 KJV And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Meanwhile, written to saved saints: Ephesians 5:30 KJV For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

The church is the body of Christ, NOT the bride of Christ.

Many erroneously use this Ephesians 5:25-27 KJV without reading it carefully:

Ephesians 5:25-27 KJV is explaining Christ's love and service compared to how we should love in marriage, as Jesus' example is often used to describe how we should love in other relationships also. Here are a few other examples: Romans 15:7 KJV Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God. Ephesians 5:2 KJV And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. Again, this teaching in Ephesians 5:25-27 KJV was about how to love in marriage it DOES not say anywhere the church is the bride of Christ in that passage. In fact just the opposite , in Ephesians 5 verse 27 it says 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. He is presenting it to himself as a church NOT a bride. and we know the church is the body of Christ, NOT the bride, this was written to saved saints: Ephesians 5:30 KJV For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. The church is the body of Christ, NOT the bride of Christ. Grace and Peace !!!

The Simple Gospel That Saves:



  1. To be saved:  You not ONLY have to believe that Jesus is God you ALSO have to believe and trust only in Jesus’ death burial and resurrection for salvation, as that is what saves us.   Believe and trust the simple gospel that saves - 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV Trust ONLY in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus for your salvation !


  1. After you are saved: - Romans 12:2 KJV - To grow in God's grace and learn about your exciting new identity and future then renew your mind daily with sound doctrine, which is the instruction that Jesus gave the Apostle Paul for us Romans through Philemon KJV


  1. Earn rewards in heaven now by applying sound doctrine (Romans through Philemon KJV) in your life - 1 Corinthians 3:12-15 KJV
