Presented Bride


Genesis 2:22 states that the Lord God took the woman that he had made from the man and brought her unto the man. In other words, just as in a wedding, the Father of the bride would present his daughter to the bridegroom, the Lord God, brought the first woman  he had made and presented her unto the man. This account can be deemed as first marriage that is recorded in the Bible.

In like manner, when we meet God face to face, there will be a gathering at the wedding supper of the Lamb of God, and the church, which is the woman that is built from the confession that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God (the Father) will be presented to Jesus Christ, the bridegroom, The Man in heaven (Revelation 19).

Points to ponder:
In the first marriage, the woman was brought unto the man (the first Adam).
In the final marriage, the church will be presented unto The Man in heaven (the last Adam).
Can you and I be presented as a bride to Christ? In other words, will God the Father, be able to bring us to his Son, Jesus Christ?
Will you and I be presentable to Jesus Christ as a member of his church? Think about it.

Genesis 2:22 (KJV)
22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

One thought on “Presented Bride

  1. Christ will present the church to Himself as His glorious bride (Eph 5:25-27). To be presentable, v 26 says that we need to be washed in the water in the word. Thank the Lord for this provision. The washing and water here must be spiritual rather than physical, so we need to come to the Bible and contact the Spirit at the same time.
