The Bible commonly uses differing language at various points to explain or emphasize recurring themes. For example a great gathering in of souls is spoken of in one place as a catch of fish, and in another place as a harvest of wheat. Both of these are just different figures of speech or metaphors for the same thing.
The many names of God are used in different contexts to bring out aspects of his nature. He is the Lord our righteousness, he is our healer, the lord of hosts, our provider and so on. Still all these names refer to the same God. And again the church is looked at as the body of Christ, the bride of Christ, a vineyard, a tree etc.
