Yeshua also spoke of Himself as the Bridegroom and revealed that God’s Kingdom would come when He returns:
• “Then the disciples of John came up to Him and said, Why do we and the Pharisees fast a great deal, and your disciples never fast? Jesus said to them, Is it possible for THOSE AT THE WEDDING FEAST to fast as long as THE BRIDEGROOM IS WITH THEM? But the days are coming when the bridegroom will be taken from them, and then they will fast” (Matthew 9:14-15 Aramaic).
• “Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to greet THE BRIDEGROOM AND THE BRIDE. Five of them were wise, and five were foolish. And the foolish ones took their lamps, but took no oil with them. But the wise ones took oil in the vessels with their lamps. As the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry, Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to greet him! Then all the virgins got up and prepared their lamps. And the foolish ones said to the wise ones, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out. Then the wise ones answered, saying, Why, there would not be enough for us and for you; go to those who sell and buy for yourselves. And while they went and buy, the bridegroom came; and those who were ready entered with him into the banqueting house, and the door was locked. Afterward the other virgins also came and said, Our lord, our lord, open to us. But he answered and said to them, Truly I say to you, I do not know you. Be alert, therefore, for you do not know the day nor the hour” (Matthew 25:1-13 Aramaic).
Yeshua tells us that “to you has been given the secret of the Kingdom of God” (Mark 4:11). I believe that the Bride of Christ is more complex than we previously understood. Notice that in the original Aramaic version of Matthew 25 verse 1 portrays the bridegroom and the bride coming for the virgins with lamps (i.e., believers); but only the wise virgins with oil are taken into the wedding feast with them. Also, notice that even though the bridegroom and bride comes for the ten virgins, Matthew 25:6 only mentions the bridegroom. Of course, this speaks of the pre-eminence that the bridegroom should always have; but it can also communicate that God’s people (i.e. exemplified in the ten virgins) have a limited understanding of the bride when the bridegroom comes.
God is showing me that the Bride of Christ is made up of the 144,000 spiritually pure Hebrew souls who are first fruits to God and the Lamb (Revelation 14:4) as well as the wise virgins (Matthew 25:10). These are the ones taken into the wedding feast where the Messiah and these precious souls become one. These are the kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek who have led their own inner fire bride forth. These are the fully mature sons, united as one, with Messiah Yeshua in the One New Man energetic matrix called Metatron.
