The Bride of Christ Has One Husband, Isaiah 54:5, 2 Corinthians 11:2

 

Jesus is clearly identified as “the Lamb of God” who is the only husband of the Church.

 

Revelation 21:9 – “And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife.”

 

God's true Church is clearly called “the Lamb’s wife” which identifies the church as the bride of Christ and Jesus as the husband of that bride; yet the Old Testament proves that God the Father is the spiritual husband of God’s people, “For your husband is your Maker, Whose name is the LORD (YHWH) of hosts (Isaiah 54:5)”. In like manner the New Testament proves that Jesus is our only spiritual husband in 2 Corinthians 11:2, “I betrothed you to ONE HUSBAND, to present you as a pure virgin to Christ (2 Cor. 11:2)”. If Jesus is not God the Father who became a distinct human son then we would have two husbands even though 2 Corinthians 11:2 clearly identifies Christ Jesus as our “one husband”.  

 

If Christ is not the only true “God manifested in the flesh, justified in the Spirit” (1 Tim. 3:16) then we have two Spirit Husbands. Yet Paul wrote that we have “ONE HUSBAND” as we will be presented “as a pure virgin to Christ”. Therefore, Jesus Christ must be Yahweh God who came to save us as a man through the Hebrew virgin.

 

“For your husband is your Maker, Whose name is the LORD (YHWH) of hosts (Isaiah 54:5)”.

 

Hosea 2:19 and Jer. 31:32 also state that the only true God is our spiritual Husband while New Testament Scripture proves that Jesus is that only true spiritual husband. Arians such as Jehovah’s Witnesses affirm that Jesus is an angel; Socinian Unitarians affirm that Jesus is just a man; and Trinitarians affirm that Jesus is one of 3 coequally distinct Divine Persons. Thus, every major Christian group (other than Oneness Apostolic Pentecostals) cannot truly affirm that they believe in “ONE HUSBAND” as the true bride of Jesus Christ. For only Oneness Apostolic believers can adequately explain how the church is presented to “ONE HUSBAND” who is Jesus Christ.

 

Since our heavenly Father is identified our husband and Jesus Christ is identified as that Lord who is our husband, Jesus Christ must be our Heavenly Father who became a true man to save us as our “one husband”. If not, then we have two husbands (the Father and the Son), which is scripturally untenable in light of 2 Corinthians 11:2, “I betrothed you to ONE HUSBAND, to present you as a pure virgin to Christ (2 Cor. 11:2)”. Hence, Arianism, Socinianism, and Trinitarianism, has God the Father as our husband while calling Jesus another distinct husband. Can the bride of Christ be the bride of two or three husbands without violating inspired scripture? Can two or three divine persons be “one husband”? “I betrothed you to ONE HUSBAND, to present you as a pure virgin to Christ (2 Cor. 11:2)”.

 

When Trinitarians claim the Holy Spirit as a third God Person, they actually have three husbands. Since inspired scripture calls our only true God the Father our husband (“the LORD YHWH” is “your husband” - Isaiah 54:5), the divinity of our only true God the Father could not be divided up into two or three distinct divine God Persons.  For One divine Person as One Divine Person cannot be two and three husbands while remaining only one divine Person.

 

Trinitarians, Arians, and Socinians cannot explain how Jesus Christ can be our “ONE HUSBAND” while our Heavenly Father expressly said that He is our husband? For One Husband cannot be Two Husbands. Since the bride of Christ has only One Husband (Jesus), Jesus must be “the arm of Yahweh” Himself revealed as a true man who came to save us.
