In the Bible, the Lamb's wife has two meanings.

2023-07-14 14:49

The ‘Lamb’s wife’ in Revelation 19 and 22 refers to Heavenly Mother. Some people claim that the church is only the metaphor of Christ's wife, and that the 'Lamb's wife' in the Book of Revelation is also the church.

[Ephesians 5:22-25] Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.
Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her

[2 Corinthians 11:2] I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him.

Of course, in these two verses, it is correct that the wife of Christ means the church, but that does not mean that the wife of the Lamb in chapters 19 and 22 of Revelation is also the church (saints). In the Bible, 'the Lamb's wife' has two meanings, so you need to look at the context before and after to find the exact meaning.

‘Lamb’ has two meanings~!!!

In the Bible, a word often has two meanings. A representative example is the word ‘lamb’.

[John 21:15] When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon son of John, do you truly love me more than these?" "Yes, Lord," he said, "you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Feed my lambs."

The ‘lamb’ here clearly refers to the ‘saints’. However, the lamb in the next verse does not mean the saints.

[John 1:29] The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!

Here, ‘Lamb’ means ‘Jesus’. But since the lamb in other verses means the saints, can we say that the lamb in this verse is also the saints and not Christ? It can't be. The lamb in John 1:29 means Christ, but it can be different in other verses. In other words, the word lamb is the one, but the meaning is different depending on the context.

‘Lamb’s wife’ has two meanings~!!

‘The Lamb’s wife’ also has two different meanings. In Ephesians 5 and 2 Corinthians 11, Christ's wife means the church(saints). However, in the next verse, the wife of the Lamb (Christ) does not mean the church (saints).

[Revelation 19:7-9] Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. ... Then the angel said to me, "Write: 'Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!' "

[Revelation 22:17] The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.

Putting together the words of Revelation 19 and 22, the Lamb and his bride(wife) hold a wedding banquet and give the blessing of the water of life to those who are invited. Those invited here mean the saints who receive the water of life as guests at the wedding feast. The Lamb's wife points to the Savior who gives the water of life. In other words, the Lamb's wife cannot be a saint. The Bible tells us that the only savior, the Heavenly Mother, is the wife of the Lamb (Rev 21:9, Gal 4:26).

There are some cases in the Bible where a word has more than one meaning, not just one. However, if you think that one word has only one meaning without looking at the context, you forcefully interpret the Bible and, as a result, can't find God's will.

    That's why we should diligently study the words of the bible. Although some people who deny God the Mother distort the words of the Bible, the Bible clearly testifies that God the Mother exists. She is the Bride who gives the water of life with the Spirit in the last days. We should believe in God the Mother as well as God the Father for our salvation. She is our Spiritual Mother who is our Savior.

    That's true. We must interpret the bible in the context. When we leave out the context, we will misinterpret the bible and we cannot receive salvation. The bride of Christ is the same. Sometimes the bride of Christ represents God's people. However, in Revelation the bride of Christ is God. She is giving out the water of life to people. It is only God who can give the water of life.
