Heavenly Marriage (2-3-09)

In continuation of the restoration thought I want to use the Bride-Groom relationship within the Scriptures. This began before creation. God for reasons personal to Himself wanted a marriage relationship with humans. Adam came after the thought. Adam and Eve depict Christ and humanity in a couple fashions. First and obvious is Adam is a type of Christ and Eve a type of the church which includes all faithful Israelites by culmination. Eve was deceived and lost her life and faith in the word of God. Adam could have chosen as an eternal groom to be an atonement of blood for his dead bride but instead ruined the type by choosing faithlessness, sin and death. Christ therefore had to enter the equation Himself. The not so obvious is that Adam as humanity died and needed a groom himself. Can you imagine a God wanting such an intimate testimony as a Groom? His ministry was to become one flesh with His bride. His first miracle was at a wedding. At the end of the age the church becomes a spotless perfected bride. The marriage is not consummated in heaven only revealed as God’s eternal plan. The church is called to heaven for the reception. The vows are made here. The devotion, testimony, and witnesses is an earthly proposition. Hosea’s wife is a picture of the whore God chose for His bride. His restoration of a whore to a perfected bride is His boast. You retards have no idea how arrogant your criticism of the bride truly is. You are braver men than I or perhaps just fools. God Himself chose to die so He can identify with, consummate, and perfect His wife and you still curse her? You boast in the powers of this world like this Groom is incompetent to deliver His bride. Heaven, the New Jerusalem, will be forever in the skies with the living stones which are His bride glowing with His glory as a testimony of His restoration triumphant power. There is no other story, no other gospel except the bride-groom relationship. A breaking of faith is the adultery that leads to divorce and in this Holy matrimony idolatry. Your eyes of flesh see a whore you feel justified in condemning from your own righteousness. Faith sees her adorned in the regal attire of spotless white decked to the hilt in glamor, glory, and honor. Walking tall to the bosom of a King who loved her. Even in your failing faith clients this is how I see you and this is what makes me give my life. I am sold out on God’s power and love to restore you. I have nothing but praise for your Groom and awe for your beauty and perfection. I see you restored, fully restored, abundantly restored.

Why do we have to continually hear about this religious B.S. We don't care. We just want our mortgages canceled and our settlements. Either accomplish this or tell us it's not going to happen.
We just want to know what is going on.

All this religious ranting hasn't been much help has it?

BigD said...

Amen. You just said it loud and clear. We have all been patiently waiting and would like to have an answer. Big O did you get a chance to see Scott?

Understand the frustration.However You folks under estimate the evil that exists. Kurt resides within 666 central, only a man of faith can look the beast in the eye that wants to do him great harm and still has YOUR best intrest at heart. You may want to cut him a little slack.Call it religious bs at your own peril.

How many times have we been told to have our bank accounts and paper work ready. Four years is a lot of time to give slack. When I get on this blog and all I see is religious nonsense and no communication on what is happening, You have got to wonder if this is dead. In all probability it is.Even the website which mentions will be active in a few days still does not work. We need to know how close to death this is.

You know OL, theres a striking resemblence between you and the complaining Israelites who died off in the wilderness.

A few days ago Scott from V metioned that the naysayers have all left....Nope, they're not dead yet.

I'm as positive and excited as i've ever been.

OL,
Have you ever heard the saying “anything worth haveing is worth waiting for”! I to agree that religious B.S. is just that, but it is obvious you don’t know the difference between religious B.S. and spiritual discernment! And in order to understand the spiritual one must first BE spiritual. These men have sacrificed their lives to better ours, and you have a lot of nerve to ridicule them after ALL that they have done, and still doing to free us! SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!

Big D,
This amen makes you just as shameful, and just for the record you guys don’t speak for everyone!!!
