    Are we the Body AND the Bride? Pt 2

    Are we the Body AND the Bride? Pt 2

    This is the show from Tuesday May 17th, 2011.

    SUMMARY:



    * Who is the Bride of Christ: Israel or the Body? Yesterday's show is not a necessary prerequisite but you may want to listen to that introduction to better understand this important Bible topic. If we are BOTH the Body of Christ, and the Bride of Christ, then by these teachings, do we marry ourselves? Of course not. The question of the Bride of Christ influences many other beliefs that Christians hold, almost subconsciously. The Old Testament says explicitly that God was married to the nation of Israel, and then because she was an unfaithful wife, that God gave to her a certificate of divorce. So, if Christians today are the Bride of Christ, than is Israel God's eternal ex-wife? Are we His second wife? Some say that we are Israel, and if so then are we currently God's estranged wife, looking forward to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb? Or is there a much more biblical and fulfilling scriptural teaching on God's view of His relationship with His covenant peoples? Enjoy!

    Today’s Resource: If you are not familiar with the large amount of biblical material discussing God's two covenant peoples, Israel and the Body of Christ, then you might really enjoy The Plot. Bob Enyart's life's work is based on this observation: Grasping the overview of the Bible is the KEY to its DETAILS. And the "details" are the doctrines that Christians wrestle with. This Bible teaching is available in a soft-cover book titled The Plot or in a downloadable pdf version, and it's also available in an audio recording of Bob's Plot seminars for immediately download or to receive in the mail on an MP3 CD. And have your children or grand kids heard the The Plot Boys yet? In this audio series for young people, Bob and two young boys, Stephen and Josh, teach through an overview of the Bible. The guys present this in a way that kids (and adults) can really understand, so it's a valuable foundation for serious Bible study. Also, please consider ordering the entire Enyart Library! This invaluable resource will benefit your entire family or church, give you gifts and materials to share with friends, and you'll help Bob Enyart Live reach more and more people with a Christian worldview!

    Yay another one!

    I have a favorite class ring that I like to wear. I call it the Body and the Bride ring. It has the cross and a bible on one side for the Church and a Star of David on the other side.

    God is a good husband. Israel was an adulterous wife.

    Abortion is the modern manifestation of the abomination of child sacrifice. It is sacrificing the child to convenience.

    Paul applied the bride metaphor to the church as well:

    Ephesians 5:25-27
    Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.

    Ephesians 5:31–32
    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.

    2 Corinthians 11:2
    For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
