The Mystery Of The Bride Of Christ
Now a great sign appeared in Heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Revelation 12:1
The wife of Jesus, reigning queen and warrior bride of the Lord Christ carrying the seed of Heaven, the divine DNA of God. This powerful symbolism of the church of Jesus Christ is a mystery only to those who don't have eyes to see, but to those who have insight she is the mother of all of His spiritual children.
The mindset of what the church of Jesus Christ should be has been clouded for centuries by the traditions of men and doctrines of demons. The church or ekklesia of God, the called-out ones is not a place to go, but a body of believers inhabited by Holy Spirit and knit together by a love relationship to formthe Man-Christ Jesus. In other words the body of Christ is the representation of the very image of Jesus in the earth.
Jesus didn't leave any buildings or memorials to worship, there is no physical evidence of His ministry and mission accept what was sown in the hearts and lives of the men and women He touched. Today people are led to believe that He inhabits a building or sanctuary and they are co-hearsed to come for a couple hours a week to what everyone calls "Church" and then its back to business as usual during the week with no thought or action for God!
The Bride of Christ is comprised of true blood washed believers joined by relationship without division or denomination indwelt by Holy Spirit and in love with their husband, Jesus! The mystery is the body of Christ are those who make up the very image of Jesus in the earth, but also represent His wife, the two being a spiritual family who through intimacy create spiritual children.
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ, from whom the whole body joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. Ephesians 4:15,16
THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN
Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, "Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife." Revelation 21:9
The true "Queen of Heaven" is the bride of Christ, the true church of the living God! In the old testament the queen of heaven was a Sidonian pagan diety that involved the worship of the sun and Baal. True, the virgin Mary gave birth to Jesus, but she is by no means sinless and she had other children proving she was a normal human used as a pure vessel for the Son of God to enter into humanity.
In Revelation 12:1 the woman is clothed with the sun, representing the light and glory of God with the moon, Satan, or the lesser light under her feet, representing our victory over the powers of darkness. The garland of twelve represents the divine kingdom or government of God, that rules and reigns on the earth. If the people of God would ever realize the powerful anointing that God has given them to reap a harvest from the earth and to heal all who are oppressed by the devil, the world would shudder under the consequences!
The Queen of England is celebrating sixty years of being the ruling monarch over the British isles and yet what has she accomplished other than being a figurehead to admire and to eventually memorialize in an ornate tomb like all who came before her? And what of the Queen of Heaven, will she suffer the same fate to remain in some mausoleum of doubt and despair or will she arise from the darkness of religious ritual to become the powerful warrior bride that God intended for her?
If you are born again you belong to Christ and not to man, an organization or a denomination, you have been bought with a price and you are a functioning part of His body. You are also a part of the bride of Christ and not under submission to anyone nor the dictates of selfish men, but under the loving guidance of your husband Jesus to whom all your devotion belongs as you commune with Him daily in spiritual intimacy that in turn will birth spiritual children.
The Man Christ Jesus and the bride in the Spirit represent the fullness of God in the earth, sowing and reaping spiritual fruits in the divine kingdom of the Father reproducing His image throughout the world and raising up a family of heavenly beings to rule and reign in the kingdom of God!
Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from Heaven saying, "Behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God." Revelation 21:2,3
