The Bride (12-07-08)

Ehp. 5:31 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife and the two become one flesh.” 32 “This is a great mystery and I am applying it to Christ and the church,” 27 ”so as to present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or anything of the kind – yes, so that she may be holy and without blemish .”

For those of you who know my personal prophecy you’ll recall that there were two prongs. One to be a man sought out for my financial knowledge who would bless the people of God with money and two a marriage counselor. This prophecy is over twenty years old and I have walked in the light of that word all this time. A couple of days ago the light I walked in appeared to be darkness when God unraveled this great mystery spoken above. It is this revelation I choose to share with you.

In my prophesy the financial side seemed predominant. This idea was only enhanced by my divorce from Dana, the wife it was spoken over. I continued in faith with the suspicion that the marriage side was suspended by the lack of faith of my partner and that the financial part was in tact because my faith could alone see it come to pass. This was logical to me since marriage is not something one can do alone. Also divorce did not seem like the best qualification for a marriage counselor. Well I got married again and I began to suspect that my new wife could be grafted into the promise and that the marriage ministry could be reborn. Unfortunately my wife known to you as “happy Jack” was not too happy about it. Again I was resigned to a one prong ministry. As faith would have it this marriage ended in divorce.

Now I know God keeps His word but was He obligated to keep the marriage prong when my bride would have nothing of it? I didn’t think so. I know the scripture about the promises of God being irrevocable but didn’t think it applicable in this free-will scenario. I’ve learned this foolish.

I’ve married again and this wife delights in God’s promises even under severe trial. Suddenly this prong seems like it will come to pass. I know two divorces would not be the normal course but even Christ took this path. Here is how the mystery unfolded for me.

There is a type of lesson where Jesus is the second Adam. A lot can be learned from this examination but I would have to say it is not wholly true. Sure He was God’s man to restore all to God what Adam forfeited. He was human, subject to sin, a living soul with independent free will etc. I went into a further examination. In John 1:30 John the Baptist testifies “After me comes a man who ranks ahead of me because he was before me.” Surely this is true of Adam also. What was the nature of Christ before Adam? As I scanned all my knowledge on this subject I found some clues in the creation story. There is a term “prevenient grace” which alludes to God having the redemption plan in place prior to creation as a contingent of the possibility of sin and death. Was redemption the plan of God as the result or the means? The mystery to me is that Christ created man by His word symbolized in type by Adams loss of rib for the same reason alluded to for Adam. Speaking of Christ “it is not good for man to be alone; I will make him a helper as his partner.” (Gen 2:18) Redemption was a means to ultimately create the Bride. Ephesian says that we were called before the foundation of the world for His good pleasure. Christ ultimately left His estate and His Father for His bride. This entire show, all that we know as existence is to present the bride to the groom. If this be true I asked myself how can the financial side be primary and the marriage part possibly be voided? This would be out of character. Now it is obvious that blessing the people of God with money is a wedding gift secondary to the marriage prong. Again this is reiterated in that Eve was created before the fall. Redemption though a prevenient measure was a means to cure the breach of death that stained the bride while at the same time using death as the remedy. This was symbolized by Adam’s sleep for Eve’s creation. His sleep was not for her sin but for her existence. This put a whole new light on Christ and His work.

Symbolically here Eve was not a moral failure but innocent. Adam in type had to die to create the church. Death became the vehicle to create the bride and to remove the stain of death from her garments. If you can see and understand that this whole God-man relationship was for love of the bride then every story in God’s word will take on new importance. God’s first act after sin was to prophesy the groom and to cover through death with a new garment. Everything points to the wedding. Of course the wedding parable becomes more clear. I will say that Christ was the first and third Adam and that the second Adam was only a shadow and type used to bridge the gap between “After me comes a man who ranks ahead of me because he was before me.”

How foolish of me to think my marriage prong was suspended. It is the eternal truth. What more could be at the center of our Lord’s heart. Sure Dorean is a financial blessing ultimately but more importantly it was for the perfection of the bride for the wedding. The Body of Christ is not the individual redeemed but the redeemed corporate or collective working to the glory of our groom, “to present the church to himself in splendor.” Suddenly it makes sense why in my individual suffering I had to rely upon other parts of the body. Dorean is more about the bride than the wedding gift of finances.

Fortunate for me God’s promises are not revocable. I did obtain a bride who teaches me in microcosm what a great work Christ has done in macrocosm. As I would give all to bless her Christ has done all the more. Please ponder your status in the bride and what love has been lavished upon you and by whom. This is my problem with the retards, they have no consciousness of the wedding plans and no respect for the bride. If I would punch them in the mouth for such insults to my bride what is Christ entitled to do? Sure He has grace but try an obtain it without repentance. Think you’ll be at the wedding? In what esteem do you hold His bride. He makes it obvious in what esteem He holds her.

As much as I would like to give you a financial wedding gift Dorean for me is more about my primary interest which is to see your marriage. As Christ did not let my marriage promise fall to the dust, as He insisted even through divorce and trial to nurture our union, He does more for you. I wager my life that the gift that is Dorean was set before the foundations of this world at this time to be revealed as an endowment for His bride. I have a personal prophecy that has come true as a proof text in microcosm what He has done for you in macrocosm.

When I finish with prison I am going to have a tremendous wedding celebration where I showoff my faithful bride. Something tells me Christ is ahead of me on His plans. I respect His bride and in you I see all the splendor of the groom. “Lord deliver the gift Dorean to your lovely bride. Do not let the financial promise though secondary fall short anymore than you allowed the marriage promise to fall short. Your bride, your love, your splendor, lavish gifts upon her Lord.” I could take this truth an show you its theme in every prophecy, but lack the venue. Do the study yourself and you will discover that the light you have walked in is like darkness.

Phase one will repost tomorrow. Marriage celebrations are long and phase one is very near the beginning.

Bush pardons 19, commutes 1 prison term. Appears that all pardons were probably among the guilty, not the innocent wrongfully convicted.

WHERE'S THE PARDON FOR KURT & SCOTT?????????

Bookmarks Print By DEB RIECHMANN, Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON – Before leaving for the holidays, President Bush on Tuesday commuted the prison sentence of a drug offender and granted 19 pardons, including one to a man who helped the Jewish resistance in the 1940s.

With this latest batch, which includes forgiveness for convictions ranging from gun and drug violations TO BANK AND MAIL FRAUD, Bush has granted a total of 191 pardons and nine commutations. That's fewer than half as many as Presidents Clinton or Reagan issued during their two terms.

Included in the latest list is Charles Winters, who is considered a hero in Israel.

Winters, who died in the 1980s in Florida, was in the airplane business after World War II. He bought up former military cargo planes and used them to transport fruit and other products. He later started helping his Jewish friends who were shipping arms to Jews trying to found their own state in the Middle East.

Winters, a Protestant from Boston, could fly his planes in and out of the region without interference from authorities. In 1948, three of his planes left Miami, picked up weapons in Azores and Czechoslovakia and then left the planes and arms in Palestine.

Winters was convicted of violating the Neutrality Act, fined $5,000 and sentenced to serve 18 months in prison. The act is designed to ensure that financial assistance and arms are not provided to parties in foreign conflicts where the U.S. has not taken sides.

Two others, Herman Greenspun and Al Schwimmer, also were convicted of violating the act, but they did not serve time. President Kennedy pardoned Greenspun in 1961. President Clinton pardoned Schwimmer in 2000.

Reginald Brown, an attorney who worked on the Winters pardon, said Bush's pardon "rights a historical wrong and honors Charlie's belief that the creation of the Jewish state was a moral imperative of his time. ... Charlie Winters helped shape human history for the better."

Film director Steven Spielberg wrote a letter to Bush appealing for a pardon for Winters.

"There are probably many unsung heroes of America and of Israel, but Charlie Winters is surely one of them," wrote the director of "Schindler's List" and other Oscar-winning movies. "While a pardon cannot make Charlie Winters whole, and regrettably he did not live to see it, it would be a fitting tribute to his memory and a great blessing to his family if this pardon is granted."

The only other pardon granted posthumously in recent years was given to Henry O. Flipper, the first black graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Flipper was drummed out of the Army after white officers accused him of embezzling about $3,800 from commissary funds. Flipper initially discovered the funds missing from his custody and concealed their disappearance from superiors, hoping the money would return.

He was court-martialed, acquitted of embezzlement but convicted of conduct unbecoming an officer, and dishonorably discharged. Flipper went on to a successful civilian career as an engineer and expert in Spanish and Mexican land law. He wrote several books and worked as a special assistant to the U.S. interior secretary. In 1976, an Army board commuted Flipper's dismissal to a good conduct discharge, concluding that his conviction and punishment were "unduly harsh and unjust." In 1999, Clinton granted him a full pardon.

In addition to Winters, others granted pardons were:

_William Alvis III, of Flushing, Ohio. Possession of an unregistered firearm and cocaine distribution.

_John Allen Aregood of Riviera, Texas. Conspiracy to harbor and transport illegal aliens.

_Eric Charles Blanke of Parker, Colo. Counterfeiting.

_Steve Doyle Cavender of The Villages, Fla. Conspiring to import, possess, distribute and dispense marijuana.

_Marie Elena Eppens of Lynden, Wash. Conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute marijuana.

_Lydia Lee Ferguson of Sun City, Ariz. Conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute marijuana.

_Eduviges Duvi Gonzalez-Matsumura of Clovis, Calif. Aiding and abetting embezzlement of bank funds.

_George Clarence Greene Jr. of Gray, Ga. Mail fraud.

_James Won Hee Kang of South Barrington, Ill. Trafficking in counterfeit goods.

_Alan Stephen Maiss of Reno, Nev.

_Richard Harold Miller of Tallahassee, Fla. Conspiracy to defraud the United States.

_Delano Abraham Nixon of Neosho Rapids, Kan. Forging the endorsement on a U.S. Treasury check.

_John H. Overholt of Black Hawk, S.D. Concealment of information affecting Social Security benefits.

_Morris Keith Parker of Georgetown, S.C.

_Robert Truman Reece of Redondo Beach, Calif.

_Donald Edward Roessler of Harrison, Ohio. Embezzlement of mail matter.

_Issac Robert Toussie of Brooklyn, N.Y. False statements to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and mail fraud.

_David Lane Woolsey of St. George, Utah. Aiding and abetting violation of the Archaeological Resources Protection Act.

Bush also commuted the prison sentence of Reed Raymond Prior of Des Moines, Iowa.

Prior was convicted of possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. He was sentenced in 1996 in the Southern District of Iowa to life in prison with 10 years of supervised release. His prison sentence is now set to expire on Feb. 23, 2009, but the terms of the commutation leave intact and in effect the 10 years of supervised release with all its conditions.

This is my problem with the retards, they have no consciousness of the wedding plans and no respect for the bride.
___________________________________

You could also say they don't "discern the Body of Christ"

1 Corinthians 11:28-30 (New King James Version)
28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner[a] eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s[b] body. 30 For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep (die pre-maturely).

This is one reason why people in the church get cancer and other diseases at the same rate as the world. They don't recognize the Body. They don't recognize the Bride. As a matter of fact they abuse it and thats why in the end they get cut off from it.

Warning to the 'retards'..Be careful how you judge. And if you accept your up-coming financial gift with the wrong attitude..without repenting of the slander you spewed all over this blog...and yet you take the spoil in anonymity...it could be turned into a bad thing.

Heres your remedy: 1 Cor 11:31
31 For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.

(slop has not determined if this is true)





BACK TO THE STORY OF ADAM…..continued from part 2

4. Adam had a mother and a father.

A. Point of adjunct: Genesis 2:23-24 KJV….. Adam is speaking in verse 23 and verse 24. Verse 23 is confirmed as such because the verse says: “And Adam said”. Verse 24 is confirmed because it begins with the word “therefore” which adjuncts verse 24 to verse 23.

B. Additional point of adjunct: ”Therefore shall a {man} [person] leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife, and they shall be one flesh”. The word ”and” in bracket is an adjunct and refers to a more definite term such as “person” or ”husband” (compare Strongs Hebrew Concordance Dictionary #376).

C. Keep in mind that words and verses in the Bible are often compressed and can represent substantial periods of time from one line to another.

Nevertheless, even given time factors, the statement by Adam about a mother and a father is highly suggestive that the subject is a natural one for Adam due to the customs of nearby soulless people; or, at least - and more importantly - for Adam to have expressed such a relative issue of connection, it is reasonable that he knew about his mother and father. It is Scripture evidenced that Adam had knowledge of the forest and its creatures and was capable of discerning their differences (Genesis 2:19-20 KJV).

D. Jesus, who shocked his hearers by declaring He was born before Abraham and was both the “son of man” and the “Son of God” - yes, Jesus was both the first Adam and the second Adam.

E. Jesus was not only the first Adam, He was also Melchisedec, King of Salem, the city of God of which the physical Jerusalem is a metaphor (compare Hebrews 7:1-2, Genesis 14:18 and Psalms 76:2 KJV). Abraham spent a great deal of his life searching for Salem, the city of God not made by hands (compare Hebrews 11:8-10 KJV).

F. So then, personifying Jesus back to Melchisedec and Melchisedec back to Adam, they three are all one (Hebrews 7:15-17 KJV). As well, the city of Salem is represented by the name of the physical Jerusalem (compare Hebrews 7:1-2 KJV).

G. Now, for the Ezekiel revelation: In Ezekiel 16:1-6 is the amazing story of Adam and his parents who cast him away as a baby into a field to die, described in a swoo about Jerusalem that starts with the nativity of Adam. The angels save him, and Gabriel breathes Soul life into him. The whole of the symbolisms needs explaining, the which I will do in the next blog, Adam - Part 4.
