OK, let’s just clear something up today. When the scriptures refers to The Church as the “bride of Christ”, that is a reference to the collective body of Believers. The true meaning of this scripture can be found all the way back in Genesis 2:24,
“This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.”
Nevertheless, marriage between humans is for the earth and for the flesh. THERE IS ONE THING AND ONE THING ONLY that separates the marriage relationship from every other relationship – SEX. The blood covenant bond created through sexual intercourse is the one and only thing that sets the marriage relationship apart. This is a right and a privilege that can only be blessed and spiritually legal when shared between a man and woman committed to each other in monogamy for life.
Having said that, when someone says “I need/want a husband, or I need/want a wife” please DO NOT respond with “Jesus is your husband or Jesus is all you need.” If you do, you are just being DSI (Deep, Spooky and Ignorant)! If Jesus can’t literally lay in your bed and physically and sexually penetrate you, then He cannot be your husband or wife! Consummation of a marriage on earth requires the blood covenant of physical intercourse, so please…
