Heresies About Jesus -- The Son Of God!!

NB: Believe what this site says and not the heresies that are being blasphemed about Jesus. It will stand you in good stead. God Bless You. Read on for more.
Who is this page meant for?
Heresies about Jesus:
These are some of the questions that will be addressed here with great help from our Counselor, God, Father and King "Jesus" (Isaiah 9:6), who has given us the spirit of God to help us and counsel us in times of need.
Is Jesus the Son of God?
Dear Brother, dear Sister! the very basis of our faith is rooted in the answers to these questions that are being addressed here. Even if one of these heresies about our Lord is true then our faith is in vain. But I know these heresies will be proven wrong in that day; that dreadful day when our Lord comes in all his glory. (Luke 9:26; Titus 2:13-14) I know THIS IS THE TRUTH because the bible says so. Just believe it; THE BIBLE is GOD breathed. (2 Timothy 3:16-17) And God is incapable of lying. (Titus 1:2) He just cannot lie. He is Holy. Its not his nature to deceive. He doesn’t need to. Do you know why? Because he is GOD. I tell you before the living God; if we have the audacity to tell the world that we don’t believe what they can prove, but that we rather believe our heavenly father and his word; mark my words; God will honor us. We need to have the audacity to stand firm in our faith, because God has given us his Holy Spirit who was sent to us when Jesus did ascend to heaven. (John 16:7) It takes great faith to believe God at just his word without seeing the promises that he has made, come to pass. For such great faith, he will stand by us. We need to be audacious enough to be willing to face persecution, suffer ostracism and rejection for his Name. Jesus is the Son of God. Obviously I will not even attempt to prove it outside of the Bible, because the bible says, “Let God be true and every man a liar.” (Romans 3:4) And all revelation is in the Bible. God in his glory has hidden these things from the wise, and it’s the Glory of Kings to search Gods heart (Proverbs 25), through his word and I assure you, if we come to him with childlike innocence, then God will reveal himself to us. Consider what the psalmist says:
“I will proclaim the decree of the Lord:He said to me, “You are my son, today I have become your father. Ask of me and I will make the nations your inheritance and the ends of the earth your possession.” (Ps 2:7)
The best illustration of the sonship of Jesus is described in the book of Hebrews. The author of Hebrews uses this very psalm to establish the superiority of Jesus to all the angels and the priests. (Heb 1:5). It is interesting to note that when God gave a prophetic utterance to Nathan the prophet about David and his son, we would be tricked to presume that scriptures talk are talking about David and Solomon. But if we notice carefully, “I will be his father and he will be my Son.” (2 Sam 7:14 ;1 Chr 17:13) God gave the Prophet Nathan a vision, actually referring to David and one who was to come from his line, the eternal king, Jesus, because 2 Sam 7:16 says “Your throne will be established for ever.” And when God talks about the throne and his kingdom being established forever, we know for sure that he is not talking about Solomon, but his own son Jesus. The author of Hebrews also uses this illustration to prove the sonship of Jesus in Heb 1:5. In Hebrews 1:6, when God brings his first born into the world, he says, “Let all Gods angels worship him.” And in Hebrews 1:8 about the son, God says, “Your throne, O God, will last forever.” These prophecies from the Old Testament and illustrations from the New Testament go a long way in establishing the sonship of Jesus to God. Not that we need a proof. We take it by faith. If you are not convinced by these prophecies then here is what God directly spoke during the baptism of Jesus and during the transfiguration on the mount.
Ø This is my son whom I love. (Mathew 3:17)
Ø You are my Son, whom I love. (Mark 1:11)
Ø You are my son, whom I love. (Luke 3:22)
Ø This is my son, whom I have chosen. (Luke 9:35)
I am not even going to mention the scores of times that Jesus himself claimed to be the Son of God and proved it in the way he conducted himself and in his deeds. The bible is sufficient to help us know that Jesus is indeed the savior, because being Gods Son, he indeed was the perfect sacrifice. We are saved beloved. Lets go to him in faith and in confidence so that on the day of his Glory he is not ashamed of us.
"Kiss the Son lest he be angry and you be destroyed in your way." (Ps 1:12)
One day every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. (Php 2:11) We just need to ensure that our confession about Jesus being the Lamb of God is now and not on the day of his second coming. The Bible says, “Today if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.” (Heb 3:15) There is no tomorrow. What we confess and what we profess must be today. If we believe him TODAY, at his word, it will be credited to us as righteousness and God will do for us whatever he does for Jesus. Alleluia! Lets address a simple question. How many of us have the audacity to ask our earthly Fathers to prove that we are their children? I doubt if even one of us has the courage to do that. Then why when it comes to God do we have doubts about what he has said? Let me illustrate this from my own life. My father is a poor man. But I tell you before the living God, if he says that he has put a lot of money in my account, I will believe him. I don’t have to go check my bank statement to verify if the amount he promised has in deed been credited in my account. If that is the level of trust one like me can show in his sinful, earthly father then how much more should we trust our heavenly father? The Bible says that God is incapable of lying. There is no deception in him. (Titus 1:2) And here is an assurance- Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, because he is the perfect sacrifice, the atonement for our sins. Only the Son of God is perfect, because he is in the Father and the Father is in him. Jesus is the only way to God the Father. There is no other way. I am sorry to disappoint anyone who feels otherwise, but this is the truth. But I also encourage everyone to come to our Lord and assure them that he will not turn away anyone, who comes to him with a repentant heart. Jesus! He is the Son of GOD. Amen.
This is the word of God and blessed are those who believe this and all that is mentioned in this site. Amen!!!

Heresies About Jesus -- Jesus In the Face of Temptation!!

Who is this page meant for?

http://thejesusblogs.blogspot.com/2007/12/jesus-is-god.html

Was Jesus tempted like us?

Some people are of the opinion that Jesus was God(which is true). so he had a special body which didnt have to endure temptations. That is utter rubbish. Jesus was definitely God but he was God with us (Immanuel). He came in flesh. The truth is that Jesus had a flesh just like ours and he was tempted just like us. But he was in such amazing fellowship with God the father that he didnt fall in to Sin. His life was dedicated to doing the Fathers will. This was to set an example for us to follow. Anyone who doesnt acknowledge that Jesus came in the flesh has the spirit of antichrist. Believe it. Its in the bible. (2 John 1:7)Brothers and Sisters if God came in his heavenly Glory and made an attempt to show us the way, we could have easily told him, “Dear Lord, you are God. Of course you are holy but I am a mere mortal. I cannot be holy. That’s why I sin and then shed the blood of bulls and lambs and goats and birds to make atonement for my sins.” That is why he didnt send the Son in all his Glory; rather he sent his Son in human flesh. (Although one day Jesus (Son of Man) will come in all his Glory. That dreadful day will be a day of great judgment.) Why was Jesus sent to earth? He was sent to show us the way. Here is an example. Consider the military. In the Armed Forces, there are two cadres, the Officers and the Men. Officers are gentlemen who are in charge of the men, who command units and are commissioned by the President of India and are charged to Lead the Men into battle. An officer is not someone who is seated in a control room passing orders over the wireless to the men fighting in the battlefield. He is a trained Soldier himself and his physical training is more strenuous than the Men (soldiers) because he should be in a position to command their respect and admiration. The reason being, when an officer gives an order or an instruction for something to be accomplished by a soldier, the soldier should never feel in his mind that his commander is just a good for nothing phoney, who just knows how to pass orders. Rather he/they should accomplish the mission with utmost respect for the Officer. The officer is always leading from the front, he takes charge and is the center point of a platoon. His superiority over the soldiers is not merely because of his rank, but also because he is several notches above the physical and mental standards of the men he is leading. Jesus is superior to us not only because he is God. (The word superior is an understatement, because there is no comparison between Jesus and Us.) But he came here on earth to show us that even as an ordinary man he was able to keep the requirements of the law, that was given to Moses by his Father in heaven. Jesus lived a perfect life under the law even though he was the cornerstone of a much better new covenant. Even though he was so much superior to all everyone else that is the angels and all of Gods creation, he was a made a little lower than angels for a little while so that he would redeem us. Tit 2:14. He had to be human to lead us by his own example and then shed his precious blood in order to redeem us for only someone closely related to us had the right to redeem us.This was the motive behind God sending Jesus among us. Jesus came in the flesh, and kept Gods commands to such perfection so that we have a leader to follow. So when we follow Jesus, we dont have to look for excuses for sinning. We dont have to Sin. We dont have to fall into adultery and then say David comitted adultery. We dont have to be dejected and then say Jeremiah was dejected. We dont have to sin. Our examples are not men but our example is Jesus himself. Lets run the race looking unto Jesus. Jude v 24 states that our Lord Jesus is faithful to keep us from stumbling. Wow! Jesus is so good that he forgives us when we sin, but he also keeps us from sinning. This promise will not even begin to come true in our lives if we dont believe it. So please believe what Jude v 24 promises. Heb 2:14 Jesus shared in our humanity. So that by his death he might destroy him who has power over death – that is the Devil. What is the implication of this statement? In Israelite community there was the concept of a kinsman redeemer. Ruth (3:9; 4:1 – 10) A kin is a close relative. We, our race was in a way sold to the Devil when Eve and Adam sinned by disobeying God. (Although, we are personally responsible for our sins J) In order for Jesus to redeem us from the Devil he had to be our close relative. That is why it is really important to understand that Jesus shared in our humanity. He became like us, so that he could redeem us. Kind of, buy us back in to his kingdom. Because he shared in our humanity he is not ashamed to call us Brothers (and Sisters of course). (Heb 2:11) Dear brothers and sisters, do you want to know how much emphasis does the Holy Spirit place on the humanity of Christ? 2 John 7-8 “Many deceivers who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the Antichrist. Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully.” See the Holy Spirit has warned us that acknowledging Christ as coming in the Flesh is as important as (if not more) acknowledging that he is the Messenger, Immanuel, Son of God. And anyone who doesn’t acknowledge Christ as having come in the flesh is likened to the Antichrist. And it doesn’t stop there, John also states that such a person is in danger of losing his salvation. That is why I encourage you to believe what the Bible says and approach the throne of God with great confidence through our Lord Jesus. OK we have established that Jesus came in the flesh and shared our humanity. Then Hebrew 2:18 goes on to say that he himself suffered when he was tempted. What? Did Jesus get tempted? Did he suffer when he was tempted? Yes! The Bible says so. In fact the bible even goes to say that Jesus suffered unto death when he was tempted. Do you understand the implication of that verse. Jesus would have preferred to die than to sin. He would have preferred to die than to even have sinful thoughts because that would hurt the Father. Praise God. Is it so with us? I hope it is. We are called to be a holy nation; a royal priesthood. We must not give in to temptation. All we have to do is look un to Jesus and we will defeat the sinful desires before they take form in us. Amen.See our God is an awesome God. He has given an example for us in Jesus in that during temptation we don’t sin. We just need to run the race looking unto Jesus. How do we do that? We need to keep asking ourselves; What would our Daddy Jesus do when confronted with such a situation? What would our Brother Jesus do if he were in my place? What would our friend Jesus do if he were facing this problem? And the moment we ask ourselves these questions, the Holy Spirit, who is the counselor, guides us in truth and leads us in to doing the things that God wants us to do. When we are tempted, we don’t have to sin, because we are not helpless. We have Jesus, and he came to save us from our sins. (Mathew 1:21. The very first promise in the New Testament)

We have the right to say “Lord! Save Me.” (Mathew 14:30) When we are surrounded by Sin and look up to God, he gives us the power to come against the evil one. There are so many occasions where Jesus was tempted not to do the will of the father. Before his baptism (John hinted that Jesus didn’t need to get baptized by him), after his baptism by the devil in the wilderness, when Peter rebuked him, On the Mount of Olives when he prayed that the Cup be taken away from him. But each time Jesus went to the Father in much prayer and overcame the temptation to do the will of the Father. Jesus showed us the way for the times when temptation surrounds us; that we don’t have to give in to temptation. Rather we need to approach the throne of grace and receive the power of God to overcome the temptations and gain victory over our Sins. We are victors in Christ. Alleluia!

Heresies About Jesus -- Jesus Vs Satan!!

Who is this page meant for?
Jesus the brother of Satan?
I came across a disgusting article on the internet about Jesus being related to Satan. This very line of thought is obnoxious and objectionable. The very thought of addressing this issue is loathesome. Let's address this anyway because if any born again brother or sister is in danger of falling away on account of  this trivial matter, then I pray that the Lord in his goodness have mercy on us. But my first prayer will always be that our Holy Brothers and Sisters grow so strong in faith that these horrendous, lustful, perverted, distorted heresies do not even cause a hindrance to their faith in the Lord Jesus in the first place. Now here is why I said in the beginning that this specific page is directed at believers, especially those who are new born in to the kingdom of heaven, if for some reason doubts have crept in their minds due to the heresies they might have come across. To a believer, the Bible is the word of God. (2 Tim 3:16) A Bible (Old Or New Testament) is (in worldly terms) a biography of our Lord Jesus. That isn’t the case with someone who has not been saved. The Bible doesn’t say anything about Jesus and Satan being Brothers. The bible says that Lucifer (Satan) was an angel created by God who was kicked out of paradise when he thought he could be God. Ezekiel 28:12-19 Satan was no more than a Gaurdian Cherub created by God. That’s the keyword; CREATED by God. And no created thing or being can take the place of God. This passage shows us that Satan is a fallen Angel.

-- Mat 25:41 Shows us the fire/hell prepared for the devil and his angels. Satan and his angels will burn in hell.
-- Isaiah 24:21-22 Satan and his dominion is destroyed.
-- Rev 20:10 The devil is cast into the lake of fire and brimstone (where the beast and the  false prophet are) to be tormented for ever and ever.
-- Mat 12:26 Jesus clearly demonstrated (Not that he had to prove it) that he performed miracles by the power of God and not the devil.
-- Mat 16:23 Satan is a stumbling block to Jesus. Brothers are not stumbling blocks to each other.
-- Mark 4:15 Satan separates us from God by taking away his word from us. Jesus is the word of God, the word made flesh now who draws us near to God.
-- Luke 10:18 Jesus has already seen Satan fall like lightening in the heavenlies. Alleluia!
-- Isaiah 14:12-15 Satan is brought down low because of the sin of trying to be God.
-- Genesis 3:14-15 God cursed Satan and put enmity between him and Jesus (Eves seed). Jesus and Satan are not brothers becasue if they were then God would not put enmity between his two sons for he is a Holy God not some wicked person.

As opposed to Satan, Jesus is not someone who was created. Rather he is the creator of all things for the Bible says that all things were created by him and for him. We have already established that Jesus Christ is God. Ps 45:6-7 God the Father addresses Jesus as God. The author of Hebrews (Heb 1:8) uses these verses to establish the deity of Christ. The Father, Son and the Holy Spirit have always been in perfect fellowship. Whatever they do, they do it in perfect fellowship. For instance, creation in Genesis 1:26 God said, “Let us make man in our image.” Notice the use of the word “US”. See whatever the Father did, he did it in perfect fellowship with his Son. The Father and the Son are one. This is confirmed in Collosians 1:16. The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost are not 3 Gods but 1 God in 3 persons. It is futile to explain this. It is like trying to make a Dog describe about You and I. How difficult it is for a Dog to describe about a Man, in the same way it is difficult for Man to explain the triune God. This is a mystery that God will reveal to his children on the Day we are caught up with him, because that day we will be like him. The bible is full of passages that establish the Deity of Christ. My point is simply this. Jesus, our God is not some Angel. He is God. He was made for a while a little lower than Angels (Heb 2:7), when he was born in Human flesh to Joseph and Mary. But that was so that he could redeem us and free us from the shackles of the person whom God had kicked out of Heaven, that is Satan. He had to become man in order to redeem us because only a close relative can redeem someone who is in debt. Isn’t it amazing that our loving heavenly father would humble himself and sacrifice his dear Son for you and I. Praise God. He died for our sins, he ascended to heaven and is now seated at the right hand of the Father. The nations are made for his Glory. Alleluia! In fact the Angels worship Jesus (Heb 1:6). No created being, angel or man, has the right to receive worship. Only God has the right to receive worship. Jesus received worship in heaven, he received worship when he was on earth and he will receive worship forever, because he is the "King of Kings and Lord of Lords." Jesus and Satan are not brothers but rather Satan is Gods enemy. I pray over you precious Brother, precious Sister, that God will keep you and protect you from the rampant heresies. I pray that God empowers us with the power of His Holy Spirit, so that we are enabled to contend for our faith and press on to perfection, so that on the Day of our Lords Glory, he is not ashamed of us. Blessed is he who doesnt fall away on account of Jesus. Blessings in Jesus name. Amen.

Heresies About Jesus -- Visit to India!!

Who is this page meant for?
http://thejesusblogs.blogspot.com/2007/12/jesus-is-god.html

Did Jesus come to India?

Claims: Jesus escaped crucifixion and visited India.

Response:Brothers and Sisters, if Jesus came to India then you and I are not even saved. Remember what a mud pit we were in when Jesus saved us. Remember that day when we were down in the dumps and our whole life made no sense. Some of us were suicidal and some of us hated ourselves for our past. That sister who had lost count of the number of men she has been with. That brother who was in bondage to sin. That abusive father. That drug peddlar. That drunkard. That abusive husband. That unfaithful wife. All of us have a horrible past. And it was this beautiful Jesus who told us, “I can make all things new. (2 Cor 5:17) I will pick you up from the miry clay and put you on a Rock. (Psalm 40:2) I have bore all your iniquities. (Isaiah 53:5, 53:11) I will present you blameless before my Glorious presence (Jude v 24). I will not remember your sins and lawless deeds.(Heb 10:17) It is this Jesus who cleansed us and gave us a brand new start. Praise God. Thank God. “Give thanks to the Lord, our God and king, His love endures forever.” After he has done so much for us, can we forget whatever he said and believe the lies being spoken about him. Won't it be a slap on Jesus' face for all the goodness he has showered on us. Lets resolve in our minds that we will commit our lives in Gods hands and pray that he will protect us from such perverted heresies so that we lead consecrated and holy lives acceptable to him. The only way Jesus could have come to India, was if he was not crucified, if he didn’t endure hell on the cross, and if he wasn’t risen from the dead on the third day and if he didn’t ascend to heaven to be seated on the right hand of the father. If, and I repeat if, all this didn’t happen then we are a bunch of phonies, who waste our time on Sundays lifting our hands and praising God for no reason. Brothers and Sisters, the bible says that such heresies are the work of the Antichrist (Read the 3 epistles of John.) We indeed are saved because we call on the name of the Lord. (Joel 2:32)I encourage all of you beloved brothers and sisters to believe God and be firmly planted in his word. Jesus never came to India. He found the will of God to amazing perfection. He was crucified, died and rose on the third day. Did mighty miracles during his ministry. Did mighty miracles after he rose from the dead. He ascended to heaven to be seated on the right hand of Our heavenly father. And all this, because God loves us. He loves us so much that he sacrificed his only begotten Son.This is the truth.Can I prove it?I am sorry, NO. (Not outside of the Bible. Nor do i intend to, because the word of God is infallible. Everything else is a lie.)I know THIS IS THE TRUTH because the bible says so.(2 Timothy 3:16-17) Believe it; THE BIBLE is GOD breathed. And God is incapable of lying. (Titus 1:2) Its not his nature to deceive. He doesn’t need to. Do you know why? Because he is GOD.

Heresies About Jesus -- The Holy Grail!!

Who is this page meant for?
Did Jesus have children?
A true christian would really wish he didn't have to address these questions, but if a soul is in danger of doubting the very grace imparted on to us by God, then it is well worth addressing these issues because these children are precious to our Father. We need to see that Jesus is God. There is a lot we don’t know about God. and trust me it is not even very important. It is more important to KNOW GOD than to know about him. If we know him, then he will slowly reveal himself to his children, who seek him earnestly and then we may know more about him. That is the way. Know God first and then know about him by the way HE reveals himself to us. Knowing him before knowing about him is more important. The bible says that it is the Glory of God to conceal matters, and it is the Glory of Kings to search it out (Proverbs 25:2). Let us search Gods heart (Like David). Let us seek to do his will and not waste the grace and the hope he has given us because of these heresies about his Son. It is dangerous to fall into the hands of God. He is a loving God; but he is also a God who will Judge. Coming back to the question; if we are convinced that Jesus was not married then we know he didn’t have biological children. But he is our father. Isaiah 9:6 calls him the everlasting Father. Praise God. I encourage my Christian Brothers and Sisters that after you have checked out the contents of this page, let not any heretic put any kind of doubts in your mind. Be firm in your faith. Sometimes it is easier to believe the world and hard to believe God. But remember, because we believe despite not having seen him, our blessing is great in the heavenlies. Our blessings will come to pass in due time according to Gods riches and mercy. The world is digging up graves to find out about fancy things like The Holy Grail and all sorts of non-sense. But if we have faith in the Living God then we know that it is foolish because Jesus is alive; our Lord has RISEN. His word says so. The word means nothing to the world, but to us it is life itself. The grave is empty my dear brother, my dear sister. PRAISE GOD; we have victory because he is alive. Yes, Jesus has children. (Isaiah 9:6) We the church are all his children. Children born of God. We are also his brothers and sisters and he is not ashamed of it. (Heb 2:12, 2:17) and we are also his bride (Eph 5:25 – 27). Lets not give in to perversions of the world but stand firm in faith. You may share the contents of this specific page with brothers and sisters who are weak; but I would encourage you to refrain from sharing this with someone who doesn't want to believe; but not because we don’t or we should not love them. See the bible says that it is the grace of God given to people which draws them to Christ. Of course they have a choice to accept or reject the salvation. If God himself cant do a work in them, then I sure will not be able to. But if you see that God has done a work in a brother or sister but he or she is struggling or battling with these heresies, then by all means share this page with them. I exhort you that anything you do; let it be rooted in Christ. God Bless!!

Heresies About Jesus -- Was He Married?

Who is this page meant for?
http://thejesusblogs.blogspot.com/2007/12/jesus-is-god.html

Was Jesus Married?
We really need to know that there are a number of questions to which God might respond saying, “Dude! Its none of your business.” I mean, let me present an argument, (For believers only, because this question doesn’t apply to unbelievers since they dont know the Holy Scriptures YET); how does it matter whether we know what Jesus' marital status was? Will it make us more holy? Finding out the marital status of Jesus is not going to make us any holier. We are called to be a holy nation and a royal priesthood. (1 Peter 2:9) Will we become more holy if we find out the answer for this? The answer is a vehement NO. But for the curious; who feel they need to know; lets try and address this with what God has revealed through his word. When we talk of revelation, I would like to establish that there is no revelation outside of the bible. All revelation is in the Bible. There is nothing that God reveals whose roots cannot traced to the bible. So the Bible doesn't mention anything about the marital status of Jesus. There are people today who are digging graves to find out about the "Royal Blood Line" and writing blasphemous books about the Lamb of God. Its all a hoax. If people spent half of all this wasted time on repenting and looking up to the Son of God, he would have mercy on them and forgive their Sins.
We need to see that Jesus is the Son of God. He is the exact representation of God. He is God with us (Immanuel). And last but not the least; HE IS GOD. (Isaiah 9:6) Also consider the coming of the Lord prophesied by Isaiah 35: 4 to 6 which was fulfilled in Luke 7:22. Jesus is the God who was to come, about whom Isaiah had prophesied. These are just a couple of instances to prove that Jesus is God. The bible is full of prophecies that tell us that Jesus is the messenger, the atonement for our sins and the perfect sacrifice. Perfect because only God can be perfect. Your sins and mine can be atoned for only if the sacrifice is perfect. An imperfect sacrifice is detestable in Gods eyes and beloved; you and I are imperfect to say the least. Nobody, I repeat, nobody is perfect apart from God. JESUS IS GOD. If we have established that Jesus is God; then dear brothers and sisters it will be easy to see why we believe Jesus was not married. As God He is perfect; but in his 33 yrs on earth as a man he was Sinless too. Heb 4:15 The question God asks of us is this “what do you think?” And I say, “Lord! I don’t want to think. I just want to believe what ever you show me.” And I hope that is the spirit with all you folks as well; because brothers and sisters, if that is not the case then something is seriously wrong. We must always, I repeat always believe what our Daddy says (Jesus is the Everlasting Father - Isaiah 9:6) and we should never doubt him. When God has to describe the relationship between Christ and the Church; his spirit through Paul uses the relationship between a Husband and his wife in order to exhort us. Well it really is the other way round. Paul is trying to exhort us about how a Husband ought to treat his wife and uses a divine exhortation; the relationship between the Church and her bridegroom; that is Christ. There lies our answer. Christ is the head of the Church, which is the body even as the Husband is the head of the wife. The Church is part of the New Jerusalem which is the Bride of Christ. Rev 21:2 I mean it was always there in the Bible, but when we see it in the light of the heresies being proclaimed in this age; it in deed is a revelation. (Ephesians 5:25 – 27 and Colossians 1:18; 1:24).
Dear brothers and sisters, our God is an awesome God. Remember when the sons of Zebedee asked Jesus if they could be at his right and left hand in the Kingdom, Jesus told them that it is our privilege to drink from his cup but to decide positions of honor in the kingdom is up to God. Being by nature God he had surrendered some of his privileges in heaven when he came to fulfill his earthly mission. He was steadfast in his approach and found the will of God to such perfection and that is an example for us to follow. My point, in a nutshell, is this. Let us consider being the bride of some rich worldly person. Wouldn’t it be matter of great honor and privilege? In light of this, now let us consider being the bride of Christ; that would indeed be the greatest honor bestowed on anyone in the world. My conviction is no woman on Earth was perfect enough to be the bride of Jesus. The bible talks about pressing on to perfection (2 Cor 13:11); which means that no body is perfect and ever will be till the coming of the Lord; and that should encourage us to lead HOLIER lives. Now one might say, “Brother, the blood of Jesus has cleansed us, we are justified by faith.” And my response is, “Absolutely right! But the bible says that we need to contend for our faith (Jude 3) and also remember in Jesus’ own words (Luke 17:10), “We are unworthy servants.” Lets dwell on that verse a little deeper. When does that servant say that he is unworthy? He doesn’t say it when he has done something wrong. Rather he says he is unworthy when he has done everything right. What? We are unworthy even when we have done everything right. Yes! Isn’t that powerful. I mean this is a perfect example of us being justified by faith and not by our works. Even after we have done everything right, we are still unworthy servants. Even after we do good works in the name of Jesus, which is a sign that Jesus has saved us indeed, we are still justified by faith, we are still justified by what Jesus did on calvary. Does that mean we should not do works? Rubbish! Faith without works is dead. (James 2:26) Works are the only way to know that God has indeed done a miraculous work in us, that he has transformed our hearts, that we can live selflessly for his Glory in any situation. If the spirit of God has convicted us and we have repented of our sins with a true heart; then the blood of Jesus is so pure that none of our sins can remain unforgiven. God is so great, so generous that he not just forgives (which is just half the gospel) but he gives us a brand new heart. A heart that seeks him and yearns for the spiritual milk which is HIS Word and a heart that does his will; which is to crucify our old man so that the fruit of the Holy Spirit can be brought forth. Now brothers and sisters, if we agree that we are unworthy servants, if all us are unworthy servants, even after we have done everything right, than I am sure that the women including Mary of Magdala (Mary Magdalene - Thought to be his wife) and others in the 1st Century were not perfect or fit to be the bride of Jesus. The Church after it is caught up to meet the Lord in the Air will be a part of the marraige between our Saviour and New Jerusalem.

Here is the truth,We, The Church, are part of the bride of Christ. Praise God.
And here is the revelation, Jude v 24 says that it is Jesus who presents us without fault, in his glorious presence, with great Joy.

My dear brothers and sisters, We the Church, are part of the Bride of Christ, which is New Jerusalem, and we are presented perfect in the eyes of God, because of Jesus. Here is the truth; Our dear lord was on a mission to accomplish the Fathers will. The Fathers will was to crush him (Isaiah 53:10) so that our iniquities could be forgiven when we believe in his Son. Getting married here on earth was not a part of his mission. The great marriage between Christ and his bride (New Jerusalem) will happen in an appointed time that we can pray for, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done.” (The marriage will happen before hsi millenial reign). That day will be a day of great rejoicing for the bride of Christ and a day of weeping and gnashing of teeth for the cults because that day they will find out who the real bride of Christ is. Amen.
