The Bible scriptures speak of an "elect"; a remnant, which will be the Bride of Christ.
Bride has a feminine concept. Now, everyone knows that according to scripture, a bride is submissive to her husband. Therefore, this Bride depends on Jesus for leadership. The bride "follows the Lamb wherever he goes."
The watchtower speaks of "an annointed" being kings and princes who will rule equally with Christ.
This is a totally different concept. Watchtower seems to make some implication here that Jesus follows mans political/religious arrangement when it refers to Jesus setting up his kingdom like the Order of Melchizedek.
So what is it?
Bride of Christ or Order of Melchizedek?
*** w54 4/1 p. 220 par. 14 The "Likeness of Melchizedek" ***
Christ has been invisibly present in his kingdom since A.D. 1914, and those who died faithful belonging to him as members of the royal priesthood have had this "earlier resurrection" since his coming to the temple in 1918.—Mal. 3:1-5; Rev. 11:15 to 12:5.
