We know Them who said “let Us make man in Our image and Our likeness”. Then They, the plurality of God, proceeded to make man, and split him in half, male and female. They wanted us to know Them that way, male and female. So They created Adam and Eve.


It wasn’t so much that they were split, but they were turned inside out for our understanding. This is why it was said they were naked. They were exposed. They were splayed open for us to see. Because of this we can know some things about the Godhead, in the images of male and female, because Adam and Eve portray some things that are otherwise hidden from us. Even as Adam did not know Eve when she was inside of him. So God revealed her to him through the sleep. So too the Bride of Christ is hidden from carnal perceptions, but made known to the Elect through scripture.


To us who understand? We are now awakened to these Eternal realities. We have put the two halves back together to experience the greater realities of God kept secret from the foundations of the world. This is “that which is from the beginning”. We call The the Bride and The Bridegroom from scripture. This is the wedding invitation of the Lamb and his bride.

Now let’s look at Her as the Mother.


In the book of John, Christ said that He would not leave us orphans, meaning parent-less. That He would send “another helper”. Like Adam had a helper, Christ has a helper. His counterpart and other parent is female. She is “bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh, in composition and design. Similar to Christ of pre-matter existence, of the before creation elements of spirit and truth as being “the same yesterday, today and forever”. They have equal share of the attributes of God. They are the original Male and Female that Adam and Eve dimly depicted when they were turned inside out. But She will not be exposed in the same way as Eve. Because Her composition predates creation, and she cannot be carnally known with the physical senses, She can only be made known by revelation.


The original pieces of God were seen working together for creation as described in these scriptures. “In the beginning was the word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” “and “Then God said, let there be light. And the spirit of God brooded over the face of the deep.” She now broods over the face of the deep and darkened soul awaiting their arrival to these eternal, unchangeable realities. This truth  precede and supersedes all of the creation that is common to the senses of carnal man. And because God is not carnal, Eve had to be extracted from Adam for him to “know her” and for us to be known too. Scripture says “Adam knew Eve and bore a son”. We similarly are born again by knowing God in this way


When God spoke, the pre-spoken Word came forth from the proverbial mouth of God, coupled along with His breath called the Holy Spirit. This was the first split Adam and Eve portrayed. Like when we speak word and breath comes out also. These are the male and female components of God.


We are like God in this way. Which is why we “shall be judged by every word we utter”. Our words are more of who we are than the clothes we put on and our titles we work for. Our words reflect something of our invisible part we call the heart. God’s Son was birthed from the beginning in this way. This is why “He is the Firstborn over all creation”.


The Greek word for spirit and breath is “pneuma”. It is the same word. This is what qualifies the masculine of God  called Word, to be wed with the feminen of God called the Holy Spirit. And because God was male and female before creation, Christ must contain the female as well to be the fullness of the Godhead body. For this same reason any true born again, begotten of the Father must have both parents as well for the scripture to be true in us to affirm that “We are complete in Him” and “of His fullness we have received” equal parts of Spirit and Word. In this way we partake of the thoughts of God, and the things that are His from before creation of things “from the beginning”.


For Christ to be called “the only begotten of the Father” and be the correct image of the Father, He had to contain male and female in order to be able to reproduce. Because man alone without his insides re-attached serves only half the image of God. This is why we are invited to “The Wedding Feast”of Gods Son saying “The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son. Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are now ready: come unto the marriage. But they made light of it, and went their ways”. What about you? Are you taking this lightly, or are you ready? Then read on.


In the beginning God split His image called Adam in two by removing a rib called eve. Notice that God didn’t make her from the dirt like He did with Adam.


For This reason the two shall become one to mend that tear.  Adam was half the man of Christ. Christ was the one to mend that tear by combining the halves of male and female to qualify as the full, mended image of God.


That is why Christ is the only begotten (from the mouth of God) and true representation of God. In Christ both halves male and female are restored to each other to remain forever. John 1.33


The Spirit and the Word are the only ones that came from God, being made up of His invisible elements of spirit and truth. They being joined together equally are God. They are the ones that said “let us make man in our image, male and female. They together are both co-creators that pre-exist all created things being products of the mind of the Father.


It was not so much the adom was split or the man Adam that was split to implement creation, but the word and spirit.  Word defines the solids, the spirit fills expanses. And it is as they are married, and united together in us, that starts our new association, being born again of this the New creation.  Which is not really new in the sense of having never been before.  But new, in that it never gets old. It remains in its newness of eternal glory. This too is a contrast for our learning, like light and dark. It is the created things that present the contrasts that started with the distinction of light and dark that were given to sharpen our understanding. But “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all”. And “we walk in the light as He is in the light” and we see Them as They are. This is how we become like Them now and not at some mysterious 2nd coming.


You transfigure and transform by staring at This. 18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transfigured into the self same image from the glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord” in the here and now.


It is those of us being born by the Word and by the Spirit of God that are “a kind of first-fruits of his creation” now, being born of Them by “the incorruptible word of God that goes on forever”. The Word carries with it Gods genetic, predisposition that we put on and become.


Are we not taught to “put on Christ”? Because “in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body (Which includes Her), and you are complete in Him” if you have received Them, male and female, in their natural pre-carnate reality.


If you have not received God  in His likeness male and female. Then you have not received His fullness, but only half.  There are still some things you don’t understand. Do not despair though. She is still brooding.


We then are His children and  the elect of God being remade in His image by adopting His Word and His Spirit. We are perfected and completed in this way “We are a new creation in Christ”. (2nd Corinthians 5:17)


Christ said “He who keeps My word and My words abide in you, then Me and the Father will come to you and make our home in you” and so They do.


We then are the Elect having both halves reunited in ourselves, having received this deal, His word and His Spirit. Both parents are with us. From them we are born again.


This is how we participated in the Marriage Feast of the Lamb and His Bride. We receive both halves and are like them. Our parents are in us, male and female,  Word and Spirit. that is why scripture says, that which is in us is greater than that which is in the world, and so they are. Christ said He would not leave us orphans? That He would leave us another Comforter and His Helper And He did, so we have both parents.


We believe the witness of the last prophet, John the Baptist, and agree that “the Holy Spirit descended like a dove from Heaven”, to unite with Christ and to abide with Him forever. Only forever beings can do this. This union is the wedding of Christ and His Bride.


This is to happen in each one of us. We receive them as They are and become like them. In this way “we are complete in Him who is the head of all powers and principalities”. Yes that “of His fullness we have received”.

We share John’s testimony that said “29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. 30 they (male and female) who come from above are above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all. 32 And what He has seen and heard, that He testifies; and no (carnal) one receives His testimony. (Because it is Heavenly and not carnal) 33 He who has received His testimony has certified that God is true.” (John 3.29+) Note here. They were not described as pre-married fiancé. This is the wedding feast we are called to participate in. The wedding is a foregone conclusion or we are all born out of wedlock.


So let us continue to adopt the truth about our Parents. Even as Paul said that “Heavenly Jerusalem is the Mother of us all”. We are “the all”. Heavenly Jerusalem is not a future reality but a concurring, meaning a continually re-occurring and  ubiquitous reality in spirit and truth. Such are we “for the Father seeketh such. John 4. 21-24


If you are waiting for a new Jerusalem to appear on planet earth, you are missing out on this spectacular event. You are not born from above. You are in limbo waiting for a transportation of a physical sort.


It is us that adopt the Holy Word and the Holy Spirit, that we are now called saints. A word that means “holy ones” and invisible ones. Even as the Lord commanded “be ye holy as I am holy”. There is no other way than to adopt Them, so They adopt us into the family of God. That is why we can say like Paul “now we are citezines, members and saints of the household of God.” The wait is over. It is not a carnal event to witness on planet earth. Even as the Spirit descended from Heaven onto christ, Heavenly Jerusalem descends on us the same way as John describes here “Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (Revelation 21.10


It is as we adopt them that we are bone of their bone and flesh of their flesh, in composition and design similar to them being spirit and truth of sound doctrine and perfect understanding.


The Kingdom of God is at hand in this way. The Bride has made Herself ready as the Bride come down from God. The King is male, the Kingdom is female.  Christ’s Kingdom is not of this age. She is from before time whose home and our calling is in God.


This is “Heavenly Jerusalem our Mother” (Galatians 4.26. This is how “The Kingdom of God is at hand”.

­Christ said in the Book of John that he would send His comforter and helper, the other parent so that you are not left an orphan, “whom the world can neither see or know” “but you will know, for She will be in you.


Why does the world not know Her? Because She is not of a construct of things familiar to the carnal senses of sight and sound but is in all ways similar to Christ in spirit and truth


So we must receive Them as not of the world, or They present false concepts of Themselves and become liars. Even as Christ said “I go away to the Father and you see me no more”. Like things of time and matter. This They are not. Christ said His Kingdom is not of this age, so His helper, other parent is not of this age either.


Space is not the final frontier, but the Spirit is. And you must be born again of the spirit to explore and retain the things that are Here.  This is why Christ said of the spirit, that the world cannot know it.


Those of the world can only know things that associate with the carnal senses. They interpretation scripture in a physical way and carnal the spirit is not. They are to be spiritually discerned.


When Christ said “The Kingdom of God is at hand, this is what He was talking about. This is why He could say “I am with you throughout the ages” because He is elementally superior. He is not bound by time and matter. Matter and time is bound by Him. “All things are held together by the power of His word. And “He is before all things, and by Him all things consist”.


In Him we have the hierarchy of the Godhead and the parents of those who are “in Christ” and born of those Parents. If we look at Them in the Greek text, we have a clearer understanding. The English translators committed a huge blunder here by interpreting some text about the Godhead as being purely masculine. Like the helper, the comforter and other parent called “the Holy Spirit. The English translators view of the Godhead as strictly masculine is in error for God made man male and female like Himself. Both halves are equally important.


The translaters view is totally in-congruent with the law of “kind begat after their own kind from male and female” defined from the beginning. Even with Noahs ark, only animals male and female were allowed in the ark. All others were marked as an abomination and washed away by the flood. How then can God not also have the female inside Him?


So for the Godhead to produce offspring, their must be a male and a female to accomplish this. Unless you believe there are 3 men ruling from Heaven. Then God would have made mankind in His image male and male, or some other abominable thing. But that doesn’t jive with the rest of creation which is manufactured and Governed by the Creator.


Creation serves the creator. The only thing satan rules is the rebelious and ignorant and fearful thinking. But even this is held in check by God like the seas and the stars. Satan has his dominion in the darkened mind of those who have abandoned their God given logic and fall head first to the place toward the place no bottom.


So the earth and all its works are held together now by the same word that created them for His glory, which is His work in us as we receive His glory. This is us who reflect His image and proof we are His. We are His offspring. There are no boogie men here in the light. All fear is gone. All enemies are put under foot.


The Bride of Christ, The comforter/helper comes from the Greek word “parakletos”.  Broken down, “Kletos” is one who calls us to come for comfort and consolation. That is what the Holy Spirit does. She provides teaching, exhortation and comfort to those who are called the “ekklisia” which means “those who are called” to which the translators use the misleading word “church” instead. Christ said “the Holy Spirit will come and teach you all things regarding Me. The Holy Spirit will take what is Mine and manifest it to you”. She breaks down the things of Christ into sound bites of word for our mental and spiritual consumption. As being the other helper, She supports Her head.


This is why we are instructed to “be renewed in the spirit of our mind” which is the place of Their inception. (Rom 12) And that word “renewed” in the Greek is “metamorphosis” and where the word “transfiguration” comes from.  That’s right! That is where our transfiguration takes place. In the spirit of our minds, in the here and now. This is our Galgatha, our deliberation in the skull.


It is the Parakleetos is the Holy  Spirit, Teacher and other Parent and Mother so that you are not orphans. In this way we fulfill the verse that says “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror (God’s Holy Writ) the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. This is what She does. She takes God’s Son called Word, and feeds these morsals to our mind for our transfiguration to be Word. The same image as the only begotten.


The Holy Spirit is the Bride of Christ and the Mother, comforter, nuturer and helper who helps raise us into their likeness, by the glory to the glory by Her efforts. 2 Corinthians 3.18


So let’s look at Their offspring.


“Ekklisia” from the Greek to English is translation into the word “church” and conveys false limitations.  Correctly rendered to English means “the called out ones”. These are souls filled with Gods spirit, of people assembled for God and not buildings. “Wherever 2 or more are gathered in My name, there am I” says the Lord. This is the correct image of church and not a physical building, because “now we are members of the household of God having been built upon the foundation of the apostles and the prophet Jesus Christ the Chief cornerstone. And we are living stones being built a habitation of God in the spirit. This building has no physical members structures or foundations.


Here is the breakdown of “the called” being the “ekklisia.


“Ek” means “out”, “klesia” means “the called” hence “the called out ones” is the correct translation, not church. It is a people,not a building.  It is us who hear this heavenly calling. We are called out of Adam to be “in Christ”. We trade the old for the new. This is “The New Creation” different than the old in both composition and design and humanly incomprehensibly greater.


We no longer need to associate with a sin nature but a righteous one. Which is why John said that those who know Christ? That they “are righteous even as He is righteous” because we are born again that way.  Or from Paul. Through one man’s sin, many are sinful. How much more through the one man Christ are many righteous” speaking of our New association and inheritance rendered effective at the cross. We put this on. We clothed in what He wears and in this way “even the angels behold the face of the Heavenly Father in each of these little ones.


“Para” means expanding over. Like in the English word “parachute”. And it is what the “Para-klete” does. Para-klete is the Greek word for comforter. She calls us to Herself and broods over us, the “ek-lesia” and “called out ones”. Her goal is our total saturation of the things of God to be godly. To be a God-like-ness. Not to replace God, or become God, but to participate in the Fullness of God.


It is the attention of the “Parakletos” given to the “eklisia” that forms the family of God. We are found “in Her” as we are found “in Christ” because She is “in Christ”. We who are hidden in Christ see the things that are hidden there, and we see Her.  Some are under Her but not accepting Her “in Christ” they miss out on this wedding feast in this way.


So we can understand the Holy Spirit is the “Parakletos” in a picture of a mother hen brooding over her chick. The chicks are “the ekklisia” those who are called . Which is why the Holy Spirit in Christ said “oh Jerusalem, how I would’ve gathered you as a hen gathers her chicks, but you were not willing”. She was “calling” but they were not listening to “the call”. They were not of “the called”. They refused Her voice. Having ears to hear and eyes to see, they heard and saw nothing. For it is with the heart one must see in here to understand the things of God. Can you hear “the call”? Are you “the called” of God? Would you like to join the Wedding Feast? The parable says “Come! All things are now ready” Matthew 22


For we know Them who said, let Us make man in Our image and in our Likeness,  male and female made He them. We know Them because They are our Parents. We are in Them and They are in us. We are the elect of God, his offspring.


The King and His Kingdom are at hand. Within our grasp. “And all are pressing in”.

THE BODY OF CHRIST


When Christ said “on this rock I will build my church”, this is more appropriately translated “on this rock I will assemble those whom I call”. That is more clearly of what it means from the Greek.


He called us saying “follow Me that where I am you may be also”. So we, the elect follow Him now to where He is, seated in the Heavens waiting for His enemies to be put underfoot by us as we apropriate the things He has given us, for us to sit down with Him  and watch. There is another group who waits for Christ to come and do another work. They like the wicked servant says “my master delays His coming.


It is us who are assembling together in Christ. As defined by 1 Peter 2 saying “Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ”.


We then as “the Called” are assembled to Christ the chief cornerstone because we are living stones and not something like brick and morter of time and matter. Even as Peter says that “your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes” showing a difference between creations. We as living stones are “bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh” being elementally different.


So it is “the called out ones” and “the living stones” and not a building on earth called “the church” that houses God, for even the heavens cannot contain God. But the re-spirited mind of faith can. For “wherever two or more are gathered in My name, there am I in their midst”. In the midst is the objective of God and not just to hoover or brood.


We are called out of something to be in something else. Which is? To be called from the fallen understandings of the Adamic nature to put on our new man in the image of Christ. His Image is not long hair robe and sandals . To be “in Christ” the destination of “the called. To put off the wrong thinking of the fallen mind, and put on a renewed mind of the spirit. To put on Christ one attribute at a time to awake to our God given glory and activate the gift given through the working of faith, which is our umbilical cord to the invisible God.


By being in Christ, we do not unbecome ourselves. We do not disappear. We are renovated and newly enhanced. We do not lose our features that makes each one of us distinctively different and unique. We then are each a unique blend of characteristics of the father based upon what we have each heard and seen of the things that are invisible that we retain as our portion of His gift to us we call our inheritance.

We are those who hear the voice from heaven that says “come up hither”. Where 2 or more are gathered in His name, underneath Her, like the cloud over the tabernacle in the wilderness and of the city in the old testament picture, for “His name is on Her”. She wears His name like a Bride. The two are one.


She is in Him as are we and we are under Her care, comfort and tutelage. She is the other comforter/helper/help mate, wife and bride. When the body of Christ comes together in the physical, the prophets apostles evangelists and teachers, meaning the ekklisia, or church as we say in English, this is when we practice these truths collectively. Just as earthly Jerusalem was a tutor by mirroring the eternal in a physical way to bring us to Christ, so also is the earthly Church (not speaking of buildings). The church like Jerusalem of old is temporary having the same purpose, to bring all into the full stature of the son of God, but “when what is mature has come that which is in part will be done away with”. When faith has come. When the eternal is obtained by faith.


This is why God has given us apostles, prophets and teachers for the edifying of the body of Christ,  to “the called out ones” or eklesia. But of all the teacher’s,  prophets and such, they are only temporary . For we see in part and know in part. Knowledge will cease, prophecies will fail. When that which is perfect comes , that which is in part is done away with”. Yes all the select offices and ministers of the church are temporary till faith comes. This is the purpose of our interaction with God and others. As Paul put it in Ephesians 4.11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 


For some if us that has happened already. The church is like an embryonic sac containing genetic in formation for our transformation but itself is not the mother but a component of mothering.  This is why Paul said “When it pleased God to separate me from my mother’s womb to reveal is son in me. He then distances himself from Jerusalem of old and it’s hyarchy saying, I did not confer with flesh and blood. I did not go to the old ….


So you see both Jerusalem of old and the church are temporary embryonic sacs till we acquire the carnally intangible and physically unattainable because “that which is flesh, that which is spirit, you must be born again”. So we show you how.


This is why Paul said of himself that God chose Him last to be a prototype for all to believe . That we would see his transition and follow his progression into the carnally unknowable realities of the spirit. He transitioned from the embryonic sac then saying of Jerusalem on earth “cut off the bondsman (earthen Jerusalem) and her son” showing that it only had temporal importance . He concludes the book with the correct definition of “the Israel of God” as nothing carnal or physical but those of the new creation.

 It was the Bond woman who was Jerusalem of old who is supposed to produce a son. This son being the son of David who was not Solomon. Solomon means peace and Jerusalem is the city of peace they are the old Covenant Concepts to be cut off. Good true son of promise and the true bride that now superseded our Christ and his paraklesis is the New Jerusalem.

Here is the break down of this hyarchy from Strong’s Greek concordance for your verification

#3874+  parakleesis, meaning helper and comforter,the other parent.
#3870= para, over
#2821= kleesis, and means an invitation, and the invited are the called, from 2564
#2564= kaleo, meaning to call
#1577 ekklesia , are the called, from #2564

The replacement for Adam and Eve are Christ and His comforter, helper, Holy Spirit, the parents of the new creation. And we are this kind if indeed His spirit dwells in us. As Paul also said in Galatians 4.26 “the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all” And She is the city/bride/wife of Christ/comforter/another helper/Holy Spirit the two come together under the New Covenant to be one for the propagation of the species for the procreation of the new creation of those born of Word/ and Spirit/ helper. Remember “in the beginning was tge Word and tge Word was God”.


John 3.29 He who has the bride (the helper, another comforter, parent so we are not orphans) is the bridegroom”. (past tense) If they were not united, or wed, there would be no offspring and we would still be dead in our sins, but now they are and so are we. If you are this kind. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. As many as are not led by Her are not born of Her and Him. They are not His. For the world cannot know Her or see Her. And this birth too is not a time dimensional concept started with Pentecost, For even Isaac was born of the Spirit. way before the time of Christ. (Gal 4.29). Pentecost just showed in the physical dimension eternal realities in the spirit.


The Bridegroom Has the Bride, The King is in the City on the throne even now! Like He was before He came in the flesh to show us the way. Hebrews 13.8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday today and forever. He never was not King. He was born in the man Jesus being the ever lasting Father and king of Kings.  But He is not of “earthly Jerusalem for His kingdom is not of this world. And the City is as eternal as Her King, being the kingdom “finished from the foundations of the world”. He always has been as with Her also.


This is the Kingdom of God which is always at Hand!

Revelation 21.9 “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.”[g]10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy[h]Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God. 

No confusion here. The Bride of Christ has no carnal components, no earthen elements of brick and mortar. No illumination to compete with the stars but from original, unparalleled  Glory of the Almighty. She descends forth from Heaven having the Glory of God, clothed in the righteousness of the saints who carry out the will of the Father.  Which is? The eternal gospel. These are all invisible to the carnal senses being “the Kingdom prepared from the foundations of the world, the place we are called to. “Follow me, that where I am you may be also”. To follow Him you must be like Him. You must put Him on. You must be found “in Him”.

Just like a diamond is seen best in the contrast of a black cloth, so too the eternal city of God, which is fitting for God, being bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh of yhings unseen,  that has no beginning or end, being uniquely fitting for us who put on our New nature of attributes displayed in the Only Beggoten of the Father. We see Her as contrasts of visible things. And this is the purpose for the contrasts of creation,  that we the elect may see clearly from the things that are made, heavenly things that are not made but exist in there eternal glory of always being new with God outside of human perception, but always within reach.

The Kingdom of God is at hand.

Revelation 21.9 “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.”[g]10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy[h]Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God.” 

Christ in John 3 said of Himself, “We speak what We know and We testify what We have seen.” He spoke of himself as being plural, which is not surprising for He is the same one who said, “Let Us make man in Our likeness.”

When John wrote this, he specifically used the Greek word “Ekeinos.” Ekeinos means “they” and “them”, and not he or him, when talking about Christ, but the English translators interpreted Ekeinos into “he” and “him,” a single person. The impact of that misinterpretation in what John was trying to convey by choosing the word “ekeinos” is lost. John was speaking of the fullness of the Godhead being a plurality and being present in Christ; just as Christ said, “It is the Father that does the works in Me,” “I and the father are one,” and “He who has seen me has seen the father.” Jesus is this plurality. John called Him “They” and “Them” not He and Him in certain text.
The plurality of Adam and Eve, the Crown of creation.
Going back to the beginning of creation and on the 6th and final day, we read,  “27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created Them.” God made them a plurality in one body. Adam was whole. Adam had not entered his deep sleep to be halved into male and female yet.
It is in the first words about Adam that; God made him both male and female when He created “them.” And God said let “them” have dominion. And God blessed “them.” They also were a plurality as is the Godhead. They were Ekeinos. Why? Because Adam had Eve (the rib) still inside him when the Lord called Adam “them,” just like John called Christ “them.” They were a plurality in one body. His wife was in him. How do we know Christ’s Bride was in Him?
God told John the baptizer, “Upon whom you see My Holy Spirit land upon and remain, this is My only begotten Son!” Christ is the true likeness of God who replaced Adam. When the Holy Spirit descended “in bodily form” like a carbon copy, she fit inside Him (Christ) perfectly. Like two puzzle pieces fit together, the two coming together made one  whole being in the image of God — both male and female.
This concept is what marriages and weddings portray.  “For this reason shall they leave father and mother and the two shall become one.”
To fulfill this, “The (Female) Holy Spirit descended like a dove and “remained upon Him.” The Word of God and the Spirit of God became one, the halves were fitted, they were united. They were Married at Christ’s baptism.
The split that started with the first Adam, was mended in the last Adam – Christ (1 Corinthians 15.45).
This is why the true association for us who are “born from above,” of things brought to us through revelation through the Holy Spirit, is Christ and not Adam. This is what constitutes the new creation. We are offspring of a different set of parents. This is what it means to be “in Christ” and in the Family of God. Why? Because Ekeinos is in us. His Spirit bearing witness with our spirit and She is the same Spirit.
It is to be born again into Christ with joy  and not coming out crying with those like of Eve.
It was at Christ’s baptism, and only then, that the heavenly Father could say, “This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.” Why then and only then? Because for the first time since the fall in Eden, a man was whole and not halved, like Adam and Eve. Christ was not split into male and female. Christ’s counterpart was in him; holy, complete, male and female.
For the Father to be pleased in the Son, the Son had to be like the Father. Whole and complete, male and female, into the image of God without splits, tears, fractures or missing pieces.
Christ could not of been the “well pleased” of the Father if He were only half His image being male only, without female. When the Holy Spirit descended like a dove to remain upon Him, the image of God was complete for the Father to be pleased. The Son had to have all the features  that were unique to the Father .
 Without any further ado  let us introduce to you the Bride and the Groom  that all others mimic and model. The beloved Son and His Bride the Holy Spirit come down from God of Heaven.
In order for God to make man in His image He had to incorporate all the male and female attributes that are Holy, because God has every attribute that is wholesome and that makes a man and a woman individually unique. Why? Because these He has inside Himself, or He would not have said, “Let us make man in our image and likeness, male and female.” The female would have been left out, but the feminine is a pre-created eternal entity, being as pre-existent as is the male in Christ. You cannot have one without the other.
Christ’s Helper and Comforter is the 3rd person of the Godhead called the Holy Spirit . Christ, at His baptism, received His counterpart in Himself to not be exposed. She is not to be seen. They were not naked like Adam and  Eve, his rib. Christ had nothing to be ashamed about. They needed no fig leaf. Instead of Shame there is blinding Glory that prevails. Just ask Paul. (Acts 26.13)
John the Baptist confirmed this saying of Christ, John 3.29 He who has (past tense) the bride is the bridegroom; (Note: there is no reference to a fiance, and the term bridegroom is inappropriate for an unmarried man) but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears them, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. They must increase but I must decrease.”
This was John’s purpose in life. John was more than a spectator at the wedding, He was “the friend.” He was the best man and the carnal witness to testify to us that “the Groom has the Bride.” John’s mission was accomplished, and we testify to what we’ve heard and what we have seen.
Welcome to Christ’s Wedding Banquet…if you are able to receive it. Read Matthew 22
So God had said, “Let us make make man in Our likeness.” And God did, but later He took the rib out and Adam called her Eve. They portrayed the Heavenly, invisible Bride and Groom. The Bride and Groom were turned inside out in Adam and Eve for us to learn and understand things about the always invisible Godhead.
The word revelation means to make known.  The revelation regarding Adam and his rib is about Christ and His Bride, but in contrast. A finite to clarify some things of the infinite. Eve was exposed and made visible, but Christ’s Bride will never be displayed with things that can be experienced with the flesh. This is why Paul said, “Flesh and blood does not inherit the Kingdom.” She “comes down of God from heaven.” That is why She is described as, “like a transparent glass,” “like a crystal,” “like a precious stone,” “something like the structure of a city,” and such. Something like, but eternally better than any construct of time and matter.
These are only common to the carnal senses and used to make comparisons. This is why one must see and hear with the heart to understand the things of God. They must be spiritually discerned. The carnal is used to make the invisible understandable.
Christ said, “The volume of the book is written of Me, I have come to take away the first to establish the second.” And He did. He reformed humanity in this way in order for as many of those who would put off their old nature to take on His new nature. This is the spiritual unveiling of things that are eternal, immortal and invisible.
This is food for us the elect who are born again anew, compositionally different from the old man. Even when God said, “Let Us…” He was showing Himself to be a plurality with things like we experience on earth but different. (Revelation 21-22 and Ezekiel 40+)
In truth, God is more aptly defined as “They” and “Them,” of male and female and not “He” and “Him.” Him and Her come from a split view. This is why the mandate was said from the beginning “24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh”.”Why?  To mend that tear, and to show the inner workings of the spirit through love.
So for us, the elect who have crossed over, having confirmed our vows at baptism, having been buried in the likeness of Christ’s death, to be raised in newness of life, we can also say; That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And truly our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We write this to make your[a] joy complete.
Adam was half the man of Jesus because his rib was taken from him. His hidden insides were seen when his rib, called his bride, was exposed. Eve portrays the elements and workings of the feminine of God; Christ’s comforter, helper and other parent so that we are not left orphans. (John 14.18) This was the Revelation of Adam, the unveiling and the exposure of what would not otherwise have been seen of the female side of God without the revealing of Eve.
So we introduce to you Christ’s counterpart and Bride called Heavenly Jerusalem, being bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh of eternal, invisible elements of Spirit and truth and Mother of His Children born from above? [Galatians 4.26 and John 3.3 – 6]
If you are waiting for Heavenly Jerusalem to appear at some time in the future, from whom are you born from and who is your mother?
This is why the Book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ is not so much about catastrophe, but about Her, the Heavenly City. She is unveiled as the final revelation in every age because She is timeless. Christ’s Bride called Heavenly Jerusalem, the Mother of the elect. Even as John the revelator described the “things that must immediately take place saying, “I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.” [Rev 21.2] She is not constructed with the elements associated with time and matter but with the composition of the Father “coming down out of Heaven,” and not assembled with the base elements of time and matter. That would be totally unsuitable and unfitting for Him who is Spirit and Truth, of elements from before God’s 6 days of creation. She is fully congruent with the laws of Creation in that “kind begats after its kind”. She is His kind of Spirit and Truth; His spirit, the Holy Spirit.
Catastrophe and judgment are not the purpose of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. End times is the delusion that disperses the fold with each new theory about the end of the world, confusing more and more sheep. But we speak to you about “that which is from the beginning.” They fulfill in themselves the scripture that says “you are not entering The Kingdom of God, nor are you allowing those who are trying to do so, therefore your judgment shall be greater.” And “it would be better off to be tied with rocks and dropped into the sea then to deceive one of these little ones” to delay their entrance. But these persist hell bent and hellbound for judgment. 
The purpose of the Book of Revelation of Jesus Christ is to expose His rib, to unveil His Eve. To describe His counterpart. This is why the book concludes with His Bride, Wife and Mother of His Children. Whose children we are if we have been begotten by the Spirit and the Word of Truth.” We are a kind of firstfruits of His creation being flesh of His flesh and bone of His bone of His attributes and sound doctrine, and not tangible things for the carnal senses.
Even as a diamond is best seen in the backdrop of a black cloth, so too, Heavenly Jerusalem shines brightest in a backdrop of darkness, hence catastrophe. The Revelation is about Heavenly Jerusalem, the Mother of those who are in Christ where. The old Covenant mountain was shrouded with smoke and a fearful fire do that “if even a man or beast touch they should die”. How much more fearful Mount Zion the City of God?
She is also. She is shrouded with cataclysms and spiritual darkness that occupy the flesh and the thinking of the carnal man. These we must overcome to ascend to our rightful inheritance “seated far above all principalities and powers in Christ”.
It is “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants the things which must immediately take place.” The book of Revelation concludes with Heavenly Jerusalem. Why? Because She is the Revelation of what is in Christ. She is the Hidden Side of Christ that cannot be carnally seen. She is cloaked in mystery. The catastrophes are the distraction. For even Mt Sinai, where Moses was instructed to make things after the pattern you had seen on the mount, was shrouded with a tempest and a fire so that if even a man or beast should touch they would die. Why? Because flesh and blood does not inherit the Kingdom. It is not invited. The man cannot get you there. Only the Word can. The cataclysms were the distraction, the smoke screen wasto deter the flesh. But we boldly enter in Spirit and Truth.
For we do not need boots and compass for our journey to the Kingdom of the Father but the Words of God. These are the tools of our trade. That which is flesh is flesh and that which is Spirit is Spirit. You must be born again? And we are. Our new nature inherits “the Kingdom of God at hand” at your fingertips, which is Heavenly Jerusalem the Mother of those born of the Spirit. (Galatians 4.26)
The only thing that accesses the invisible is the newly created of the eternal newlyweds as those who never get old, but are always new. So we are. This is the Israel of God and not some silly plot of land on planet Earth. (Galatians 4.26-26 and 6 15-16)

THE BROODER

The Holy Spirit is Heavenly Jerusalem and The Bride of Christ. She is the feminine part of the Godhead that is equally God, being co-founder and co-creator, as seen brooding over the face of the deep during creation; in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. And the Spirit of God was brooding over the face of the deep.

 

From inside Christ on earth, and through His lips She said through Him, “Oh Jerusalem how I would have gathered you as a Mother hen gathers her chicks but you are not willing.” She says that again today and the gospel confirms. “Come to the wedding for all things are now ready.” [Matthew 22.4] Even as Christ said, “I and the Father are one,” the Father is equally male and female, She is there. Where? In Christ.  “In Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body.” And She is there. If we are “in Christ”, Christ is in us. We have Her, too.

She was also seen brooding over the Israelites when they marched through the desert as a pillar of fire by night and a cloud of covering by day. But the Israelites  greater Glory was after everything was set up of the things the Lord showed Moses on Mt Sinai saying; so Moses finished the work the Lord gave them to do by setting up the tents of meeting with the tabernacle and articles along with the priests the Levites and the children assembled. Then the cloud filled the tabernacle of meeting and the Glory of the Lord filled the temple. For the first time She no longer brooded over but entered because these things were assembled correctly.  And if the invisible elements of the invisible God are correctly assembled in you, then She is in you as well. This is “The General Assembly and church of the firstborn described in Hebrews 12.18-28. of Heavenly Jerusalem.

So only when Israel was gathered together with all the articles of faith and assembled, then did She come into them. Her wait was over.The Lord’s Glory was in the tabernacle (figuratively speaking about Christ’s body, John 2.19+)  and Her name is Heavenly Jerusalem. Now we are the temples of the living God. She is the Glory of God and like with Christ, She is in us. We were not left orphans. (John 14.18)

As it is taught in 2 Corinthians 11 that the woman is the Glory of man. The Glory of God is His female counterpart, too. Before She filled the temple, She only brooded waiting their arrival to these invisible realities. Are you ready? Can you see what we are talking about? Or is She still brooding? Are you still brooding?

The Kingdom of God is at hand in this way. It is at your fingertips.

Much like any mechanical device, you must have all parts connected for it to be active and operational. So, too, the several components, or better yet, truths, that make up the Godhead must be reassembled in the spirit of your mind to activate your faith. These truths are for us, the elect, to more clearly see our heritage in the carnally elusive one. We are to accept Them (Ekeinos) as They really are with Christ’s hidden person, counterpart and Wife.

1st Peter also rightly defined the women as “the hidden person of the heart.” And so She is in the heart of the Father and ours, too  if we are able to receive Her.

She is central to the purposes of God and the centerpiece of the gospel being, “The Kingdom of God at hand.” For us the elect, “we are now fellow citizens, members and saints of the household of the living Father,” as described here from the book of Hebrews 12, But you have come to the city of the living God, to Mt Zion and Heavenly Jerusalem, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn, to the spirits of just men made perfect”.

For the time that is coming now is when you will no longer worship the Father in Jerusalem but in Spirit and truth.” The true Jerusalem. (John 4)

The scripture starts with Adam’s unveiling of Eve and concludes with the unveiling,  the Revelation of Christ’s counterpart Heavenly Jerusalem, like bookends. This is the beginning,  conclusion and the purpose of scripture.  God’s Heavenly Kingdom and the Bride of Christ being one and the same. And the most important aspect of this remarkable Lady, the First Lady and The last Lady is… The Kingdom of God is always at hand. Even now She broods over The darkened waters of the lowly of  heart and beacons it open.

Christ said “Behold I stand at the door and knock. To them that open up???

15 “If you love Me, [d]keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another [e]Helper, that She may abide with you forever—17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Her nor knows Her; but you know Her, for She dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.

This is your Wedding invitation.
