The Body of Christ Is Not the Bride of Christ!

        We are the body of Christ, joint heirs, brothers in Christ. Rom 8:17, 2 Thessalonians 2:1 "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,..."
        It is clear and stated numerous times in scripture: we are brothers (brethren). How can we being members of the body, joint heirs of Christ-HIS BROTHER be his bride? That has no basis in logic or rational thinking. Its completely irrational and has no true biblical foundation whatsoever. It's delusion. Can the eye marry the foot or the head? How can we the body of Christ marry ourselves? The Bride of Christ refers to Israel NOT the body of Christ. I don't understand how all of you so-called experts cant see the logic here and the contradiction of selling the bride as the body and vise versa a two-sided creature.
Rom. 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. The body of Christ IS the bridegroom to Israel-the sons of God.
1 John 3:2 "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is".
        After reading this verse how in the world of rational thinking can you interpret this or US as the bride of Christ? This error has and is causing so much confusion, chaos and division in the body of Christ more so than anything the devil has thrown at us. Or maybe that's just what he doing. Using the believers to deceive the body of Christ just as it is prophesied.
Matthew 24:24 "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect".
Revelation 18:23 "And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived."
        Who are the bridegroom? This verse is certainly NOT referring to Jesus but the voices speaking for him. Who may that be? The BODY OF CHRIST.
Revelation 21:2 "And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. The bride is identified straight out in these 2 versus and refer to Jerusalem and THE JEWS. How much clearer do you need it."
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 shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife. 10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God," There it is right there. The bible says exactly what the bride is referring to. Why or how can this be ignored?
        Rev 12 is all about Israel" . The bible is clear but most of the Christians out there are so confused about the "bride" of Christ because of false teachings. We are the body of Christ, joint heirs, brothers in Christ. Rom 8:17, - Not the bride of Christ.
