I have another question for your wonderful site. I always thought the “church” is the bride of Christ…but studying Revelation recently , I reread chapter 21 where John is shown the bride and it is the New Jerusalem/the Holy City “prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband…”. Will you explain or comment please? Thank you and God bless you.
The Church is the Bride. When Rev. 21:2 describes the New Jerusalem prepared “as a bride” it means that just as no effort is spared to make a bride her absolute most beautiful best on her wedding day, so no effort has been spared to make the New Jerusalem it’s absolute most beautiful best.
