Will of God

Art: The Garden of Eden by unknown

God’s will is such that

It can bend our will

To come around

To his way of “seeing things”

Sooner or later

(But it is better for us

If it is sooner

Rather than later)

 

Time is not linear

But rather times bends

Until it comes

Full circle

So what we think is the end

Is only the beginning

When the two

Become one flesh

 

Rev 19:7

“Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.”

Genesis 2:24

“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife; and they shall be one flesh.”

 

Bride of Christ

When a wife gives herself

Completely to her husband

She literally becomes him

And loses herself

Her life becomes his

The two become one

Literally

She becomes him

And he becomes her

 

She loses her life

But gains a husband

Who gave his life

For hers

 

Ephesians 5:32

“This is a great mystery; but I speak concerning Christ and the church.”

Mother of All Living

Art: Formation of Eve by Ed Suominen

And all that God made was good

Except it was not good that man be alone

So God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man

 

And took from him a rib

And fashioned from that rib a woman

 

How long did that take

To prepare a wife for his creation

How long was his creation asleep

 

He slept until the woman

Was brought to him

To be his wife

Then everything was good

 

It is like Christ and his bride

That which has been prepared for him

A house in which all his children live

The mother of all living
