…What does Scripture mean when it refers to the church as a bride and Jesus as a bridegroom? Is this just flowery language? Is it merely indicating God’s love for His people? Understanding ancient Jewish wedding practices makes the meaning of Scripture clear. The wedding is a picture of the covenant Jesus made and reveals His plans to return for His bride, the church. The people of ancient Israel understood what Jesus was going to do because they understood the model of the wedding. The analogy between a wedding and Christ and the Church is described in Ephesians 5:31-32, “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery — but I am talking about Christ and the church.” The following overviews the practices of an ancient Jewish betrothal and wedding. In parallel, it shows how Jesus has fulfilled the betrothal portion of the wedding and how He may fulfill the remainder when He comes again for His bride, the church.
Although Jesus Christ said that no man will no the exact time of His return, all of these signs were given to us in the Bible to describe and highlight the time frame.

As I read all the news, wars, and more wars, rumors of wars with China preparing for war with Japan and North Korea threatening to annihilate the US, Iran threatening the US and Israel, Russia threatening the US with possible nuclear war if we intervene in Syria, and all the wars in Africa; I am reminded of Jesus’s words in Luke 21 and where we are in prophecy. There are many prophecies in the Bible, but I am concerning myself with Jesus’s words of warning.
