Church Pregnancy

It is often overlooked, but there is a reason Jesus will marry the church – to have children. This is the “joy set before him”:

“Yeshua — who, in exchange for obtaining the joy set before him, endured execution on a stake as a criminal, scorning the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2

Isaiah 52:13-53 describes Jesus. Isaiah 54:1-10 describes his bride. She will have lots of children – lots.

“Sing, barren woman who has never had a child!
Burst into song, shout for joy,
you who have never been in labor!
For the deserted wife will have more children
than the woman who is living with her husband,” says Adonai.” Isaiah 54:1

Furthermore, her pregnancy will not be as it was in the beginning,

“To the woman he said, “I will greatly increase your pain in childbirth. You will bring forth children in pain.” Genesis 3:16

The curse will be rolled back.
