THE BRIDE OF THE LAMB – PART 3

INTRODUCTION: In part two, we discovered that the Church is called the Body of Christ because Christ fulfills the role of a Head to a body by supplying all the needs – Physical, mental and spiritual of the Church. The Church in return is expected to fulfill the role of a body to a head by making Jesus Christ known and executing His decisions and commandments. We also saw how the Bride of Christ could be likened to a Temple with Jesus Christ as the Chief Cornerstone while other Christians are the “living stones” for the building of the Temple. In this part of the series, we shall continue our study of the Bride of the Lamb. May the Lord bless us as we do so. Amen.

1. THE BRIDE IS A VIRGIN
How the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, gets His Bride will be similar to how Adam got his own, because Jesus Christ is the second Adam. A beautiful illustration of what is going to happen can be found in the story of how Isaac got his bride. It is also interesting to note that there are 2 Brides in the scriptures: Israel is the Bride of Jehovah and the Church is the Bride of Christ. Of course the Anti-Christ claims he has a bride too.

Cor 11:12; Gen. 2:18, 21-24; John 19:33-34; Eph. 5:29- 30; Gen. 24; I Thes. 4:15-18; Is. 54:5-8.

2. THE MARRIAGE OF THE LAMB
It is essential that you note that it is going to be the marriage of the LAMB. The great event is not so much the consummation of the hopes of the Bride as it is the consummation of the plan of God for His son. arranged for before the foundation of the world. It is the greatest reward for Jesus for becoming a man. And it’s a marriage that will never suffer a divorce.

Luke 17:34-36; Matt. 24:27; 24:36-39; II Cor. 5:10; I Cor. 3:11-15; Rev. 19:7-9; Eph. 1:4; I Tim. 2:5.
