EPHESIANS 5 VERSE 23

For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the Church:
Is this the most misunderstood verse in the Bible?

In the Old Testament the 12 Tribes of Israel are identified as the Lords wife. They were married to God, see Isaiah 54 verse 5. They were divorced from him because of idol worship, Jeremiah 3 verse 8, and promised to be remarried to God when they turned from their evil ways, Jeremiah 3 verse 14: See www.jude20.com. In the New Testament, Revelation 21 verse 10, the wife is the Holy or New Jerusalem and identified in verse 12 of the same chapter as the twelve tribes of the children of Israel.

Ephesians 1 verse 22 and 23, “And has put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church (ekklesia). Which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all.” All things are actually under the feet of the body. Christ is the living head, of a living body, (Children of God) which is the fullness of him. If Christ is married to the wife then so is his body. The consummation brings forth after its own kind, children of God, though they be few, see Isaiah 54 verse 1 and Galations 4 verse 26 and 27. Any society that takes Christ as the head will be blessed and children will be born again.

The word Church in Greek is ekklesia. The outline of Bible usage is:
  1. A gathering of citizens called out of their homes into a public place.
  2. People convened for deliberating in a public place of the council (society).
  3. The Assembly of Israelites.
  4. In the Christian sense: An assembly of Christians gathered together.
The Church in Ephesians 5 v 23 that is married to Christ, if read in context with the rest of scripture, is the twelve tribes, the Assembly of Israelites, see Genesis 35 v 10 and 11, and any society that takes on Christ through the reformed churches. However they are not the body of Christ. Acts 7 v 37 and 38 also reveals the children of Israel as the church in the wilderness.

Let’s read Ephesians 5 verse 23 again. “For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church (society): And he is the saviour of the body”. Christ is the head of our society. Society is backsliding due to unbelief and false religion. Hebrews 10 v 30, “the Lord will judge his people”. And his body will be with him to do this, I John 3 v 2. Be good.
