Church not the Bride of Christ?

Check out this interesting answer on Yedda

To Whirlwindflower;

About:  "Did you ask God and Jesus who the wife of Jesus is?  It is not the Church.  We the people in Christ make up his temple true, for he is the Highest Priest of his Temple.  It does not pertain to religion here on earth but in the Heavenly realm."

" And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
  (Matt. 28:18-20).

Also, you quote John, Chapter 10, but that does not adequately back up your statement, about the bride  of Christ. 
Earlier in John, Chapter 3, --Christ is also represented, by John the Baptist, as the Bridegroom and the church as his bride.

" He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled." (John 3:29).

 And in 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." 

As for your statement: "How many of you listen and hear God's actual voice and the Lord Jesus's actual voice. Jesus stated my lambs will know my voice." It appears that you are implying an incorrect implication here.

See Hebrews 1:1-2  " God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;"

 "Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain." (1 Cor. 15:1-2).

 " I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed." (Gal. 1:6-9).

 " Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:" (2 Peter 1:2-3). --dc
