Indeed. Excellent!We are the body of Christ while here on this earth to continue with the job of evangelism. Paul gives us a clear picture of how the body of Christ is to operate in Ephesians 4:14-16.
We are also the Bride of Christ after the Rapture and the Church leaves this earth.
It is not an either or. The Church is both, just depends upon whether we are still occupying on this earth, or we have been to our heavenly destination and the marriage supper of the Lamb which occurs in Heaven just before Christ's second coming to the earth.
I made it halfway through that article and counted 5 contextual errors of misinterpretation before I even knew I was counting....Just one example: The author's statement that New Jerusalem comes down "onto" Earth is incorrect. New Jerusalem will be a near Earth satellite.Here is a link to an article that explains the difference between the Bride and the Body.
I would love to expound because it is something I still go back and forth with, but unfortunately it is against board rules.
But "they" are wrong. Their misuse of Eve as a supposed type cannot be supported by other Scripture ... unless we take it out of context and proof text isolated verses or fragments of verses. The whole cloth of NT Scripture demonstrates that ALL who are in Christ are part of His Body here on earth and are espoused to Him as a Bride in an intimate union to be consummated in the future when we all --those dead in Christ and those alive in Christ-- are taken to be with Him.There is a teaching (with which I disagree) that the Bride of Christ is a select group of Christians taken from out of the whole Church (the Body of Christ), based on their faithfulness, to be the Bride of Christ. They point to Eve being taken out of Adam's body as a type.

The other errors I noted are of a similar type, in other words, close, but no cigar.
I'd elaborate more, but am on my phone ...
ETA - Did some looking around on that site and noticed they are enamored with Les Feldick. Major red flag. Les is a hyper-dispensationalist who gets many things right but too many things wrong. A little leaven spoils....
ETA #2 - Yeah, that whole site is a hot mess of hyper-dispensation rubbish and Pauline mishmash. Best to avoid it altogether.
You're welcome!Thanks Steve.
Never heard of Les Feldick before.
On the Rapture Ready website Who's Who in Prophecy they have a very favorable bio page of him. Is he an approved teacher from their perspective?
