BRIDE OF CHRIST BIBLE VERSES STUDY ON BRIDE OF CHRIST BIBLE VERSES MEANING WITH BRIDE OF CHRIST VERSES MESSAGE
 

YOU MADE IT !!!

We learned on the last page about Soul mates and destiny and that if one's marriage is God's will, that we should do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to keep it together.

God compares marriage to the union between the Lord and the Church.

Ephesians 5:23
For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and He is the saviour of the body. (Body of Christ)

Ever ponder on your wedding day?

Whether it has occurred or is yet to be.

What a special event you want/wanted it to be?
 
Remember that you planned your wedding since you were a child?

Looking at wedding dresses, thinking that they were the most beautiful articles clothing you had ever seen and you couldn‘t wait to have a reason to try one on or buy one?

Thinking of who would be your bridesmaids at each stage of your life as your friends changed?

Going to weddings and taking mental notes of what you wanted and didn’t want from the wedding you were observing?
Weighing the pros and cons of a big wedding verses a small wedding, a big bridal shower verses a small one, a flower girl or no flower girl, where to register, should we send out save the date notices, evening or afternoon wedding, colors of the wedding, food served at the reception…..etc.

It has/had to be picture perfect.

Can any wedding be picture perfect?

Can any MARRIAGE be picture perfect?

What if there was one marriage that WAS picture perfect?

Wouldn’t we be taking notes? Wanting to find out how we can make OUR marriage just like that one?

 

BRIDE OF CHRIST BIBLE VERSES TRUTH WITH BRIDE OF CHRIST BIBLE VERSES BLESSING BRINGING FORTH BRIDE OF CHRIST BIBLE VERSES HOPE

We are going to peek in on a wedding in preparation …

THE WEDDING OF JESUS
 

Revelation 19:7-9
Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the
Marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.  

What?

The Lamb… meaning Jesus, has a wife?

ABSOLUTELY

But, who is the soon-to-be “wife”?

Great question.

The answer is ... Christians

The Body of Christ.

The Church.

 So, when you became a Christian ... You became ENGAGED to Jesus.
 
Let’s read a little more about what to expect…
 

Do you remember when we spoke of restoring the FIRST LOVE in your marriage to your spouse?

The Bible speaks of us losing our first love for the Lord.
 

Revelation 2:1-7
Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy FIRST LOVE. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the FIRST WORKS; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

We are to re-establish our FIRST LOVE for the Lord.

That fiery passion that we had at first.

Lest we lose Him ...

BRIDE OF CHRIST BIBLE VERSES WARNING ON BRIDE OF CHRIST BIBLE VERSES DANGERS AND BRIDE OF CHRIST BIBLE VERSES CONCERNS

What did the Lord mean when He said ...

"Do the first works" ...

What are some of the first works (Things that you used to do or should be doing) for the Lord, that you do not do now?

What things have you not done recently for your Lord that you used to do or should do to remind them that you love Him and care for Him?

Some suggestions would be:
 

Pray
Read the Bible
Do a Bible study together
Volunteer at church
Volunteer at a charity or homeless shelter
Read a spiritual book
Listen to some Christian music, concentrating on the words. 
Spend time alone with the Holy Spirit.
Attend a Bible study or other church function. 
Sing a hymn - singing comes from the spirit.
Light a candle. (Fire is a symbol of the Holy Spirit.)
Spend 5 minutes praising God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
Helping others as the Lord asks of us.
Write a psalm to God.

I mean after all, you and the Lord are to be ... Married.

Sooooooo, you really wanna show your LOVE for Him.

Check out this study to learn more.
 

What are you doing to prepare for Jesus?

What did you do to prepare when you married your spouse?
After you married, what have you done?

What SHOULD you do?

I mean ... The LORD did compare our earthly marriages to His own.
 

Ephesians 5:23
For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and He is the saviour of the body.
(Body of Christ)

 So we must do within our marriage as we would with our marriage to HIM.

Let's tear apart the ‘duties’ a little more and see what the Bible has to say.
 

Ephesians 5:25-33
…Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
 

A note to the wives:
Wives, submit yourselves unto your won husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
 
The wife submits to the husband and the husband serves his wife just as Christ served the church. Remember how Christ served? He died. He sacrificed everything.

A husband should be willing to sacrifice everything for his wife, care for and protect her. A wife should WANT to submit to a husband that acts like Christ does.

A note to the husbands:
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word, 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. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

This passage compares how we act toward God, with how we are supposed to act toward our spouses.

Interesting.

If you were to diagram your marriage, in what ways would it line up with the picture that the apostle Paul painted of unity, love, respect and honor?

In what ways would it need to change?
Are you willing to make those changes, as the Lord requests that we do?

What if Christ were to base his Church on the way you and your spouse love each other?

Would it be a Church you’d want to be a part of?

Why or why not?

Here’s another passage that reminds us of what we just read.
 

1 Peter 3:1-7
Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.
 

These verses seem pretty cut and dried as to how a husband and wife should act towards each other.

It's up to us to CHOOSE to act that way that GOD intended instead of kicking our feet in the dirt and arguing.

This is NOT a slave/master relationship.

Remember… same team.
 
Have you ever imagined what a marriage could be like ... IF God were involved?

If we were to act and react to our spouse, the way that Jesus (our Betrothed) has acted towards us.
 

We get so caught up on this physical world, that we seem to fail to include the Lord in our earthly marriages.

This world WILL come to end. Our marriages will end.

Our spouses could die, leave us, abuse us…. Nothing is promised to us.
 
As we have learned ...

We came into this world alone, and will leave this world alone… everything is in between is rented.
 
Though in physical marriages, our physical bodies belong to our spouses:

 

1 Corinthians 7:4
The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.

Our SOULS belong to God.

1 Corinthians 6:19
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

Shouldn’t we get closer to the one that holds our soul?

The one that holds our ETERNAL future?

He can guide our physical marriage so much better than we can on our own.

He can BLESS our marriage.

Without HIS blessing ... It's bound to fall apart… and leave us alone once again.

But, IF we CHOOSE to keep our eyes and hearts on the REAL marriage… The marriage between us and Jesus and use this as a basis for our earthly Marriage…

We CAN overcome.

That event is something that will NEVER perish…
There is no “Til Death Do Us Part” with Jesus.

Jesus will never “cheat” on us.
He will never leave us.
He will never attempt to make us jealous.
He will never take advantage of us.
He will never hurt us.
He will never call us names.
He will never allow us to feel lonely.
His Love for us in UNCONDITIONAL.

A Love that we DEFINITELY need.

What if the Lord is watching us in our own earthly marriage as to determine how we will act and react with Him in our marriage to Him?

How can we truly understand and know how to Love our earthly spouse, if we don’t allow ourselves to be Loved by the PERFECT One that already died for us…the One that we are already betrothed to and apply that to our earthly marriage?

Don’t we wish that we could love and that our earthly spouse would love us with the love that Jesus has for us?

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE !!!

To fully understand the Love that He has for us and apply it in our marriage?

Our lives would be SO different IF we got just a tiny glimpse of it and applied this TRUE LOVE in our own earthly marriage.
 
But, we DO comprehend this LOVE?
 
 A LOVE so deep,

that had our LORD die for us.

Has anyone else ever died for you?

Hung by nails holding up the weight of their body, spit upon, mocked, stabbed, beaten… because of their LOVE for us?

Maybe our views on Love would change ... If we were able to FEEL His Love for us.


"Love Song For A Savior"


In open fields of wild flowers,
she breathes the air and flies away
She thanks her Jesus for the daises and the roses
in no simple language
Someday she'll understand the meaning of it all
He's more than the laughter or the stars in the heavens
As close a heartbeat or a song on her lips
Someday she'll trust Him and learn how to see Him
Someday He'll call her and she will come running
and fall in His arms and the tears will fall down and she'll pray,

"I want to fall in love with You”
"I want to fall in love with You”
"I want to fall in love with You”
"I want to fall in love with You”


Sitting silent wearing Sunday best
The sermon echoes through the walls
A great salvation through it calls to the people
who stare into nowhere, and can't feel the chains on their souls

He's more than the laughter or the stars in the heavens
As close a heartbeat or a song on our lips
Someday we'll trust Him and learn how to see Him
Someday He'll call us and we will come running
and fall in His arms and the tears will fall down and we'll pray,

"I want to fall in love with You"
"I want to fall in love with You”
"I want to fall in love with You”
"I want to fall in love with You”


It seems too easy to call you "Savior",
Not close enough to call you "God"
So as I sit and think of words I can mention
to show my devotion

"I want to fall in love with You"

"My heart beats for You"

 What would happen to your marriage if you and your spouse/future spouse went ALL OUT for each other?

Complete Unconditional Love ...

Thinking only about how to please one anotherand God.

Caring nothing about what the worldly trends are.

Working on the SAME TEAM.

Can you imagine what that marriage would be like?

It would be a very RIGHTEOUS Christian marriage.

The way that God intended marriage to be like.

Not two people living two separate lives occasionally giving each other a kiss… but rather two people, becoming ONE, on the same team… living only for each other and for God.

In the movie “Shall We Dance” ... One of the characters reflects on marriage…

“All these promises that we make and we break...why is it that you think people get married? Because we need a witness to our lives. There's a billion people on the planet, I mean what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you're promising to care about everything...the good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things...all of it, all the time, every day. You're saying... Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go unwitnessed, because I will be your witness.”

SAME TEAM !!!

Do YOU have Unconditional Love in your marriage?

Physical marriage is only until Til Do Us Part… but the Marriage with Jesus will last ETERNALLY.

I would like for you to consider something ...

The Israelites had a custom where if a man was married to a woman, and the man died the brother of the man would marry the woman.

Deuteronomy 25:5
If brethren dwell together, and one of them die,
and have no child
, the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger: her husband's brother shall go in unto her, and take her to him to wife, and perform the duty of an husband's brother unto her.

So these Religious leaders, trying to trick Jesus, came and asked of Him ... Who would be the husband of the woman in Heaven if she married several times according to Jewish custom.

Matthew 22:23-30
The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him, Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother: Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh. And last of all the woman died also. Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.

Jesus answered and said unto them,

Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

Jesus said that these Religious leaders did not comprehend the Scriptures correctly...
 
(Who would have thought that could happen, huh?)

Jesus said when one soul of a married couple dies ... The marriage ends.

Let that be the reason these words are spoken ...

TIL DEATH DO US PART.

So, all of you who have this mental image of showing up in Heaven and being reunited with your husband or wife and the marriage continues in your lil house with a white picket fence ...

JESUS MADE IT CLEAR ...

In Heaven there are no marriages.

We become as the Angels.

We become the BRIDE of Christ.
