Rev 21:9“Come here, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.”
Not trying to derail what you said; in the eternal state, all believers will be Resurrected. However, for now at least, it appears that not all of the Church will be the Bride of Christ.
In the mean time.. with the shedding of light on your behalf, this is what immediately comes to mind.
1 Peter 2:4-5
4 And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been
rejected by men, but is choice and precious in the sight
of God, 5 you also, as living stones, are being built up as
a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual
sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
31 For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and
shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.
32 This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to
Christ and the church.
Thanks for posting those verses, because they seem to go hand-in-hand with the following:
Rev 21:22I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb are its temple.
Rev 3:12‘He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name.
When we face the Beima Judgement, there will be believers who will have no precious stones to show for in their time in the flesh. They will not be made pillars in the Temple.
The Christ is the Temple, therefore the Body/Bride must have precious stone to reflect Christ's glory. If there are any Church Age believers who abort their reflective duties, then they logically must be replaced with Israelite believers who maintained their relationship with God (like David, Joshua, Moses, etc).
Rom 11:19You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.” 20Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you stand by your faith. Do not be conceited, but fear; 21for if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you, either. 22Behold then the kindness and severity of God; to those who fell, severity, but to you, God’s kindness, if you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also will be cut off. 23And they also, if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. 24For if you were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these who are the natural branches be grafted into their own olive tree?
Israel was betrothed to Christ, and they rejected it as a whole, so what makes the Church so special???? It seems to me that Christ will only marry the faithful of Israel and the Church.
Israel and Church=Preliminary Betrothed Bodies
Bride=Filtered Body (end result)
Israelite branches=Visible Heros
Church branches=Invisible Heros
