Th Bride and the Temple, What are They?

Just because I’m a Christian doesn’t mean that I’m excluded from Heaven in the new heaven and new earth.

The Temple: Although I’m the temple of the Holy Ghost it doesn’t mean God rejects me, “I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.” Revelation 21:22 It means that while I’m on this earth my thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are pledged to Jesus Christ, “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthian 6:19-20 There is no permission given for the internal government of the mark of the beast to live within my thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

The Bride: Just because I’m a member of the body of Christ’s church doesn’t mean I’m disqualified from entering Heaven, “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.” Revelation 21:9b-10 It means that as long as I’m on this earth I’m married to Jesus Christ. “I hope you will put up with me in a little foolishness. Yes, please put up with me! I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him.” 2 Corinthians 11:1-2 I will never consent to marriage with the internal government of the mark of the beast.

On this earth, I’m likened to the Bride and Temple because the mark of the beast will never have a welcome within me. I’m married to Jesus Christ and my body is His territory. When I enter the new heaven and earth, God and the Lamb are the temple, and the New Jerusalem is the Bride. As a Christian, I’m invited to the wedding supper in the New Jerusalem, RSVP, “Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.” Revelation 19:9 My name is on the reservation list written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
