Glorious Bride

Glorious Bride

Why did Jesus say “Go and sin no more”?

Maybe it was because He is coming back for a bride that has made herself ready for Him – a spotless bride with out stains or blemishes.

Many times when people Ephesians 5:22-23 they usually do so trying to prove a point about a woman submitting to her husband. However, they miss the point that God was trying to convey. Jesus is the Bridegroom (husband) and true believers are the bride (wife).

The bride (church) and groom (Jesus) are to become one – when you see the church you should see Christ.

True believers are to submit to Jesus.
The church (the bride) is subject to Christ.
The bride (the true believers) are not to be a harlot or adulteress.
The bride (the true believers) must give themselves fully to the Lord.
The bride is to sanctify and cleanse herself with the washing of water by the word.
The bride are members of Jesus’ body, of His flesh and of His bones.
The bride is to leave her past when she is joined to Christ.
The bride (church) should respect Christ.
The bride is to love her groom.
The bride is to be a glorious church.
The bride is to be without spot or wrinkle or any such thing.
The bride is to be holy and without blemish.

Jesus is the head of the wife (head of the church).
Jesus is the bride’s Savior.
Jesus loves the church (bride) and gave Himself for her.
Jesus gave everything He had, even His very life.

Ephesians 5:22-33 NKJV
“Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.”
