Who is the Bride of the Lamb?

The Church of Jesus Christ is the Bride of the Lamb. We belong to Him! He is the Head and we are His Body. This is the most intimate group of believers closest to the Bridegroom. However, we must not confuse this position with our earthly understanding of the bridegroom and bride. Such relations do not exist in heaven, but serve as an illustration for us to demonstrate the intimacy and closeness we will be privileged to experience for all eternity with the Lord Jesus Christ who loved us and redeemed us from the powers of darkness with His own precious blood. The Apostle Paul reveals the Bride in 2nd Corinthians 11:2: "For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ." Revelation 21:2 says: "And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband."
