Prophecies spoken over Jerusalem, the Bride! - The Bride

The Bride: Jerusalem

Jerusalem is God's bride and will be married. Notable is that the land of Israel is also called Jerusalem's land, Isaiah 60:18 and 62:1-4!

Isaiah 62 (GNT),

,,, 1 Jerusalem ...
4 ... Your new name will be  God Is Pleased with Her. Your land will be called Happily Married
Because the Lord is pleased with you And will be like a husband to your  l a n d.

5 Like a young man taking a virgin as his b r i d e, He who formed you will  m a r r y  you.
As a groom is delighted with his bride, So your God will delight in you. ...

Isaiah 61:10
(GNT), 

10 Jerusalem rejoices because of what the Lord has done.
She is like a bride dressed for her wedding.
God has clothed her with salvation and victory.

And, Revelation 21:9-22 (NIV),

... 9 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. 11 It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. ...

As such it is God's dwelling place amongst his people, Revelation 21 (NIV),

... 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a  b r i d e beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.   ...

Biblical scripture is so clear about Jerusalem's purpose, Ezekiel 48:30-35 (NIV) puts it like this,

35 ... “And the name of the city from that time on will be:
THE LORD IS THERE.”
