I don't believe you. I believe Matthew.

Matthew 22:2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
Matthew 25:1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

Are you telling me that Millennium is not "kingdom of heaven"?

I know what you're talking about: marriage of the church in heaven before the second coming. I have held that years ago and have repeatedly read Bancroft, Scofield, Larkin, and Ruckman on that issue.

You know what's the problem? The Bible says the "kingdom" is the "marriage".

Theological system vs. PLAIN SCRIPTURE

I don't have to force the Millennium into Matthew 22 and Matthew 25 for it is what it says: "kingdom of heaven". On the other hand, you are trying "to shove" the church into this parable, which is not.

I've read that point-of-view, but notice the NUMBER: "TEN". Ten is a GENTILE number.

Compare that with "TWELVE" (Rev. 21; Mat. 10; Rev. 12), which is ISRAEL.
