5 This is a great mystery; but I speak concerning Christ and the church. This is the union. This is the resurrection of Christ in a purified believer. This is the joining of Christ to the purified soul of the believer to produce an entirely new creature. This is the marriage of the bride of Christ, (his true church, made spotless, without wrinkle), to the Lamb. This is becoming one with Christ and God, junior to God, but up to God. Christ only joins with sinless, purified, washed, cleansed believers, having purified their hearts by faith, having purified their souls by obedience to the word of truth.
