She's Jerusalem.....Not A Church....

When you read Rev. 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. ", everyone thinks the bride in this verse, is the church. However, when we study the bible carefully, we can see that she's not the church.

1. Who can give water of life?

"He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life." Rev. 21:6

Here, God Almighty,
the Alpha and the Omega, said "I" will give the water of life. Then can anyone come and say they will give the water of life other then God Almighty? No. However, the Spirit and the bride say the are giving water of life, then they must be who? God Almighty.

2. Who is actually called the bride in the bible?

"One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb...and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God." Rev. 22:9-11

3.Who exactly is Jerusalem?

"But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother." Galatians 4:26

The Alpha and Omega=water of life

The Spirit and the bride=water of life

Father and Mother=water of life

Father and Mother=the Alpha and Omega=God Almighty

So, the bride is not the church. She is the Jerusalem that is above, and she is God Almighty. We belong to the church, the Church of God, the only true church. With that being said, thank Father Christ Ahnsahnghong for showing us our Heavenly Mother Jerusalem so we can receive the water of life.
