God created man in His image; male and female. God chose to display His hidden attributes in the male and female as they came together. For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his bride.
We know from the creation account that God spoke. When God spoke His Word came forth. When God spoke His Breath/Spirit came forth. The Father, being the source, then the Son and Spirit. The Spirit brooded over the face of the waters. Not that one was lessor or greater than the other, but different in purpose, being equally God with all the attributes, displaying complimentary characteristics.
It was said of Christ that He declared the Father. He said, “If you have seen Me, you have seen the Father.” It was necessary that Christ was also the fullness of the Father, His completeness, as scripture says, and that if He was the fullness of the Father, He had to be male and female.
For Christ to appropriately display the fullness of God, and He did, for in Him dwelleth the fullness of the Godhead, He had to display the same attributes as the Father before it was said He made male and female to display His likeness, before this split.
How did Christ on earth do this? The first creation started with the Word and the Spirit leaving the mouth of God, and they split as they departed. The Word creates, the Spirit incubates. This is what happens inside us when we receive them; the Word and Spirit. The new creation we become occurs when the Word and the Spirit become one again. We can catch a glimpse of this phenomenon in other unions or marriages. We call this the procreation of a species. The two becoming one and begetting according to their own likeness, be it a mammal or a fish or a reptile. You get the picture.
In heavenly terms, this is what is referred to as the Wedding banquet that we are invited to. It is the coming together to be one in the Holy Word and the Holy Spirit, the true union. This has to take place before there are any offspring. This is the union that takes place in the heart of believers when they accept Christ and The Holy Spirit.
How and when did Christ on earth display the Father in both male and female? It was at His baptism that Christ received the Holy Spirit, thereby fulfilling all righteousness. It was at that time the Father said this is my beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased. https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Matthew-3-17/ God the Father could only be pleased if the Son were a true chip off the ol’ block, correctly displaying who He was from before the beginning, before His Word and Spirit went forth.
The first creation started with the split. God divided light and dark. earth and sky, land from water, etc. But more importantly, when the Word and the Spirit come back together, being united, or wed, or married, this was the union of the new creation. God Says, For my Word will not return to me void but shall accomplish all that I desire https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/search.php?. What is it that God desires? That we shall go out (birthed) with joy, and be led forth with peace. We are those born of that union, the union of the Word and Spirit, reunited to procreate true images of that union born in His likeness, in His fullness. We receive the engrafted Word, and are begotten by the Word of truth to be a kind (kind begets kind) of first fruits of His creation. Male and female made He them in His likeness. From the book of John, “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, that which is born of the Spirit is spirit, you must be born again.” This is pretty radical if you can grasp what we are saying.
So back to Christ’s baptism for a fuller explanation. The Holy Spirit descended upon Him in bodily form like a dove and remained upon Him. The Spirit was given to the Son without measure. They received of each other’s fullness.
John the Baptizer knew this, and knew this was his purpose. “Make straight paths the way of the Lord” he said.
John the Baptist did not know Him but was told, “Upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon, THIS IS HE! I have seen and testify that truly this is the Son of God.”
But it doesn’t stop here. John made an even more radical remark when his disciples were asking about this Christ man. They asked, “Who is He whom you testified of back at the Jordan?” John then replied in present tense. Meaning then! Not later. He said, “He who Has the Bride is the Bridegroom, but the friend [John meaning himself] of the Bridegroom, who stands and hears Him, rejoices greatly because of the Bridegrooms voice.” That is why this joy of mine is full. And from the Greek, THEY must increase but I must decrease, THEY who come from above are above all. That is the two in one, the Word and the Spirit. As Christ said to Nicodemus “WE speak what WE know and testify what WE have see and you do not receive OUR testimony”. How about you?
If you are still here, without any further adieu, may we introduce to you “The Bride and Groom. The Word and the Spirit. For John did not talk about THEM as engaged, or as though THEY would be married on a future date, or the soon to be or THEY would have been called fiance. He said “He who has the Bride is the Bridegroom”. This is an introduction only for the newly weds and completely in-appropriate for the un-wed couple. Stay with us for there is more.
The baptism of Christ was necessary “to fulfill all righteousness”. To accomplish the full task and purpose of the Son on earth. To Accomplish all! For the Word and the Spirit to come together to have offspring. That is those born of Word and Spirit. Which is us! If you believe. And if this is not the truth, and the wedding has not taken place, then those who claim to be born again are born out of wed lock. Then we would all be born from pre-marriage fornication, we would be bastards.
If you are waiting to see a future wedding, you are walking by sight using the reason of your carnal mind as it relates to the physical senses. For “He is the God who calls things that do not exist as though they do”, because they really do where it counts. In Spirit and truth. This is a message for those who are “called out”, which comes from the Greek word Eklisia, the word translated Church. The “called out” of the world. To be be called into. And the into is “In Christ”. This mystery and many more are “in Him”. Which is where “all the hidden treasures of God are”. Be it a mystery or a revelation, be it the Spirit or the body.
None of these are realities to the human senses. Kind begets kind and kind associates with kind and ye must be born of the spirit to associate with us.
If you have stayed with us this far you are of this kind. If this is the first time you have seen and accepted this the Bride and the Bridegroom, Welcome home.
We will explore this new creation in greater depth. What is the new creation? For those who believe, it is you, it is Him, it is us, it is Them. This is how we put Them on. It Is now, He is now, the Kingdom of God is at hand! The King, the Queen, the City, and His government. If this was not true you would have a King without a kingdom. And what is a King without a kingdom? What is a judge without a court? What is a husband without a wife? He is or He isn’t. Check mate. The true King is always standing.
