- 3/15/23 COUNTDOWN
- Would you make any changes in your life if you knew the Rapture of the Bride of Christ was going to happen this April 9th, 2023?
Can I actually “Foretell” that the Rapture will be April 9th, 2023? No, I cannot but I can tell you the season. You need to read my book Hope for Those Left Behind for the details.
On my Bible Guy Web Site – page Movies – starting with Abraham. We have been watching the Bible Movies in order each evening: Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Moses…
The Bride of Christ, who is she and who is she not. Part 6
Much has been said about the Bride of Christ. It is evident that she exists somewhere and is acting in some capacity. The place nearest to the Bridegroom is the place which is held by the Bride. The Bride is composed of the full overcomers, who are very close in their fellowship with Christ and with each other. They are also in very near relationship to the Holy Ghost, who transmits to them the precious things of the Bridegroom.
Fear not! I am telling you this in advance so you will know that God is in control, has a plan and wants to get your attention.
What you are about to read was written over 100 years ago published in 1919 and The Bible Guy was given permission to republish. What a great honor to have this available today.

The world has always listened to the message of love; but to the Bride of Christ that message is peculiarly sweet and precious. Christ, the Bridegroom, speaks to no other as He speaks to His beloved bride. His yearning is beautifully expressed in the Songs of Solomon 5:2, “I sleep, but My heart waketh; it is the voice of My beloved that knocketh, saying, Open unto me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.”
From 1919 Book The First and The Last by Ira Surface, republished by Thomas Spencer The Bible Guy. CHAPTER 9
IV. THE BRIDE PECULIARLY SEPARATED
Let us notice further. Gen. 2:23 says, “And Adam said, this is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of man.” There is a deep significance in that type of Eve, as seen in this scripture. Notice that she was taken from the body of the first Adam, who said, “She shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of man.” Eve was not the body of Adam. She was of his bone and of his flesh, but she had a distinct individuality. She became, distinctly, a separate body. She was made peculiarly separate, that she might be the bride of Adam. His body could not be his bride.
Paul speaks of this, in Eph. 5:32, as a great mystery, and says it is the “Ekklesia”. The truth is, there is an earthly body of Christ. Paul said, “Now are ye the body of Christ.” This is the “Ekklesia” militant. As out of Adam’s side came his bride, so out of the militant “Ekklesia” will be taken the Bride of Christ. This is another unanswerable proof that the Bride will not be the whole body of Christ, but will be separated from that great body of believers, which we call the “Ekklesia”.
Notice again: The separation of Adam’s bride took place while he was in a deep sleep; and so it will be when the Bride of Christ is taken out of the body, at the rapture. At that time, the “Ekklesia” will be in the midst of sensual counter attractions which will blind her eyes, stop her ears, and make her insensible to the separation of the Spirit-filled body, the Bride, who will be secretly stolen away by her Lover-Christ. But when she opens her eyes she will be conscious of the fact that those who were her strength and power are gone. If you will read the last message, given to the Laodicean “Ekklesia”, you will see these very conditions portrayed. Rev. 3:5-18:
“I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor not: I would that thou wert cold or hot.
“So, then because thou art lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of My mouth.
“Because thou sayest, I am rich and increased with goods, and have need of nothing: and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor and blind, and naked:
“I counsel thee to buy of Me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayest see.”
