The Birth of the Bride

We all know the story of Adam and Eve, and how God put Adam to a deep sleep and took out his rib to form Eve. The beautiful thing is that there is more to that. Eve, although not born the typical way out of a woman, was born out of Adam. Eve was born of flesh. However, when Christ hung on the cross and His side was pierced.. His flesh was torn, and out came water and blood. Eve may have came out of her husband’s side, but the bride was put IN Christ….entering back into His flesh, back into her true husband’s side, and becoming one body together. They are a new man, twain into one, and we are blameless within Him. The bride is cleansed & free within Him, and she is accepted by God. In Christ, she enters into Life.. she is born again, into the side of her true Husband.. reconciled & consummated (made one) with Him. She is no longer born out of flesh, but born into Spirit and Life.

“For He is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; 

Having abolished in His flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in Himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

And that He might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby.” Eph 2:14-16

    fitly joined…what God has joined…just as adam hijacks th attributes of God ….usin em to decorate flesh with titles and position…he didso with marriage and fam…so that those whose identity is in Christ alone still judge according to th flesh and by flesh standards that front like its frm God…only what God has joined matters…only th Spirit-born new creation knows what it means that th members of a mans household become his enemy…not as th flesh defines an enemy…but s Truth defines it…bein no longer of th spirit of this world but bein of and by th Spirit of God…

    th Spirit of God strives against th spirit of this world….that is enmity…established and defined by God alone…no longer of adam but now of God…a planting of th Lord not “men like trees” which are uprooted bc they arent a planting of th Lord…

    also…bein In Christ…this is marriage…something adam never had …adamic marriges are about rituals, contracts, vows n traditions…frontin likearriage but really not bein marriage…etc…but 2 becomin one flesh…not possible in adam….only in Christ…

    th only marriage God ever talked about is thmarriage of th Lamb…just as salvation, forgiveness, cleansing, new birth and all that is only from th Father, so is marriage…but most ppl still dont recognize th diffent…bc fam is common, they think its what God meant…but th fam of God is completely different and cant be acieved by man…

    reaping where we havent sowed…children coming frm all corners…mother here is ur son…son here is ur mother…bein born of th Spirit, shaped in righteousness not in iniquity…and bein given to Christ by th Father…this is th fam of God ehich does th will of th Father…

      Very true.. not after the flesh or a fleshly doctrine, but this marriage is a real consummation.. being twain into one, joined together in one new man.. this was always the marriage God intended from the beginning, and what adam did was only a shadow but not the true.. yet u see doctrines everywhere about spouses and families, which the whole world has even outside of Christ.. but not this true marriage, it is undefiled and no man can separate what God has joined together.
