Again agreed! The passages you mentioned are parallel to Messiah and his bride, SPIRITUAL ISRAEL. I have already in previous posts which I am sure you have read; indicated solely upon Scripture. Inductive learning which Isaiah and Paul taught. I would NEVER force Scripture to conform with my thoughts; but vice versa! Sir my issue is with the term Christos paralleling with Mashiyach. Grecian verses Hebrew. John 4:22“You worship what you do not know. We worship what we know, because the deliverance is of the Yahuḏim [NOT JUDAISM per se!!! But the Jewish nation retained true worship up until the Messiah's era-Romans 3:1-3;Rev. 2:9; Rev. 3:9, etc....]; false rabbinic teaching notwithstanding!]

23“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father [YaHWeH] in spirit and truth, for the Father also does seek such to worship Him.

24“Elohim is Spirit, and those who worship Him need to worship in spirit and truth.”

25 The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming, the One who is called Anointed. When that One comes, He shall announce to us all.”

26יהושע said to her, “I who am speaking to you am He.”

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Early Christianity had its roots in Hellenistic [Grecian-Septuagint] Judaism and the Jewish messianism [Messiah and his apostles and proselytes from the nations that accepted Torah and Messiah] of the first century and Jewish Christians were the first Christians [Better- Messianic believers].ARE YOU READING THIS: JEWISH CHRISTIAN WERE THE FIRST MESSIANIC BELIEVERS!

The idea of mystical realities has been widely held in Christianity since the second century AD, referring not simply to spiritual practices, but also to the belief that their rituals and even their scriptures have hidden ("mystical") meanings.[5]
was introduced by the early Church Fathers, who used the
The link between mysticism and the vision of the Sublime term as an adjective, as in mystical theology and mystical contemplation.[3]

In subsequent centuries, especially as Catholic Christian apologetics began to use Greek philosophy to explain Christian ( Hebrew Messianic) ideas, Neo-platonism became an influence on Christian mystical thought and practice via such authors as Augustine of Hippo Augustine (354—430 C.E.) St. Augustine is a fourth century philosopher whose groundbreaking philosophy infused Catholic Christian doctrine with Neoplatonism. He is famous for being an inimitable Catholic theologian and for his agnostic contributions to Western philosophy.
Yes the bride must match the Messiah. You have any evidence the church does? What names do you call upon your Creator and His son? You profess the haRuach Qodesh is a being separate from Yahweh the Father? You keep the 7th day Shabbath as the Scriptures teach? Do you keep His Feast days of Numbers 28-29? Do you consume the clean or the unclean food/drinks? This is the beginning of what scripture teaches how to draw close to Yahweh the Father and His son. I don't see that there is a match with Yahshua and the church. I could say more but I believe you understand.

“Two young roes” – S. of S. 7:3. In this poetical and mystical Song of two become one, the Beloved Christ is firstly likened to “roes” (2:9, 17). Now Christ describes His bride as “roes” matching Him, as He is reflected through her. To see the bride is to see Christ, for she has become like Him!

Attributes of the poetic Song of Songs does have a messianic teaching to it. But not to hyper focus on the anatomy of the Shulamite woman, who does depict the bride of the Messiah spiritually. Obedience to the covenant is the ketubah/ marital contract (Jeremiah 31:31-34; Ezekiel 36:26-27). This is the fidelity the Majesty on High seeks. As Yahshua spoke: If you love me , you will keep my commandments . They are a light yoke and not grievous. Done away with says Christianity, that says Paul did so. You better dig back into the books, because he is not saying by what it appears on face he says. Did Yahshua twice so not state not one yud or tittle of the law would be done away with, or not? Natzarenes and Jewish Christians are how the believers are known/labeled throughout early and even post messianic history, especially before the apostasy- Note: Acts 17:6-7 and Acts 24:5. The term Christian originally meant a term of scurrility: Acts 11:26; 1 Peter 4:12-16 2 Timothy 3:11; 1 Corinthians 4:13; Lamentations 3:45. The saints never called themselves Christians! Those that keep the commandments of Almighty Yahweh the Father and hold a trust in (A resurrected) Yahshua as His Son and vassal and that he bled out on Calvary to cover the sins of the repentant that come into the covenant. They become Spiritual Israelites. Everything forwards from after the time of the writing of Revelation were the seeds of apostasy down to Rome and the blend with the nations till today. Come out of her my people Yahweh says! The 10 and the 2 are in confusion and infidelity. Prove this for yourselves, many thousands have that have loved truth!

“Two breasts” – S. of S. 7:3. In this love Song, the breasts of the bride show the increase of both her faith and love toward Christ. He firstly rested upon her breast with His presence filling her heart. Now for His pleasure, a dual fullness of trust and affection return to Him.
