The Church Is The Woman


During creation, everything that God created were created as a shadow of things yet to come. When God created Adam, He created him as a shadow of Christ - "Adam was a type (prefigure) of the One Who was to come [Christ]" (Rom 5:14). Christ Jesus is the real man, all other men are just a type, a picture, a representation and a shadow of Christ. So also Eve and any other woman is only a shadow of the Church.  In Genesis we saw God putting Adam into a deep sleep and creating Eve with a bone removed from Adam's side. So also, in the new testament we see God putting Jesus into a deep sleep on the cross and out of Jesus's side God removed blood and water (John 19:34-35).
The blood is for redemption as the Church is born out of, and sustained by redemption. The water is for growth as the Church grow through the word of God. "that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish." (Eph 5:26-27). God is using Christ's blood and the water of the word to build and create a glorious bride for Christ. Therefore the Church is the real woman, all other woman is a type, a shadow and a representation of the Church. Do you know that you have never seen a woman before?
All you've seen is something that look like a woman, an image of a woman. The real woman is the Church and she is incurably attractive. She has everything that a real woman is suppose to have. In fact her status is magnetic, she is hypnotic. Just a glance at her would make you want to give your life for her. She is perfect in beauty, and her smile is highly infectious. Her hair falls in waves, like a gentle sloppy river. Her eyes are enchanting, penetrating into the soul and taking one's heart captive. Her lips are like scarlet ribbon, her breath, like the wind on the beach making her month so inviting.
And look, her checks are rosy, nothing could match her beauty. Her beauty never fade, for she is eternally gorgeous. She is more colorful than rainbow and the radiant of her beauty is brighter than the sun. Her skin, as soft as that of a baby matches the the colour of the sun and reflect the moon light. She is pure and innocent, as transparent as Jasper. And she is so intelligent, a virtuous woman that brings honour to her husband. She is soft but yet as tough and resolve as a seasoned warrior. She lays hold of authority and commands obedience. She is a true queen, a perfect match for the King of Glory.
