Default The Bride of Christ only a Part of The Church

This theory is that the bride of Christ will be made up of a select number of the New Testament Church better know as full overcomers. Believers of this theory use such terms as the bride part of the church, full overcomers, partial overcomers and a select part of the church, to describe the bride of Christ. It should be called to your attention to began with that these terms are not found in Scripture. The bride of Christ is not made up of only a few special people in the church.

It is believed by many that the bride of Christ is to be made up of only the New Testament saints, but this cannot be true as is clear From Heb. 11:8-16, 40. In this passage, all Old Testament saints from Abel on were promised the same city as New Testament saints, so all saints of all ages must be part of the bride of Christ (Rev. 21:9).

Yes, that theory would provide for slums, a little nicer area for the middle class, and then penthouses in Trump Tower for the elite.

Build with the finest of materials, build to the truest plumb and measure, so that when you are done, another is pleased to dwell there.

Paul said it well.

"Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory."

Default Is The New Testament Church Now Married To Christ

John called Christ the bridegroom (John 3:29). The bride of Christ is going to be composed of people in the new creation in Christ. The Old Testament saints were not legally made a part of the new creation until after Christ for He is the head of the new creation and the "firstborn" of every creature (Rom. 8:28, 29; Col. 1:15-18; Heb. 12:23). Their sins were not atoned for and could not have been legally blotted out until the New Testament was made (Rom. 3:25; Heb. 9:15). John belonged to the old order of things and was merely a forerunner and herald of the head of the new creation and his salvation was upon the same basis as that of the Old Testament saints, which was faith in the blood that was to be shed. The disciples belonged to the new order of things (Matt. 11:11, 12; Luke 16:16) because Christ had already become the "firstborn" of every creature . ALL Old Testament saints were made a part of the new creation after Christ made atonement for them. Christ had power on Earth to forgive sins but no one before Him ever had such power (Matt. 9:6; Mark 2:5-12; Luke 5). therefore, as members of the new creation after Christ, the Old Testament saints will become members of the future bride of Christ as much as the New Testament saints (Heb. 11:8-16, 40).
