God Promotes Spiritual Unions

 
 
I think it is proper, as much as I am able, to set forth a declaration of spiritual unions.  I do this because, since the Garden of Eden, people have struggled to understand the intent and purpose of intimate unions between men and women. Indeed, what we call marriage today is merely a shadow of a shadow of or what God originally meant to be spiritual unions.

To begin with, relatively few people are married to their real, God-given mates.  Many people have chosen, Christian and otherwise, to form unions with mates according to their natural minds and/or natural lusts.  In so doing they have damaged their own lives, the lives of their progeny, and the plan of God in general.  Only those who wed according to the Holy Spirit are considered actually joined in the sight of our Lord.

 

A type of the Holy of Holies

 

The reason for this is that a woman’s womb is a type of the Holy of Holies. Within her body is the seat of creation and it is where God dwells/manifests during the time of procreation.  If God does not choose your mate you profane His temple. Though God built this sacred place, when those who enter it do so contrary to His will, He regards it as polluted. This is why adultery and fornication is sin.  Once a holy place is polluted by sin the only thing that can cleanse it and make it holy again is the blood of the Lamb.

Thus, many people are profaning God’s temple every time they have sex.  Since they do not have a spiritual union commissioned by the Holy Spirit, they sin every time they enter that holy place. Likewise, whatever issues from those unholy unions is not the perfect will of God. The sin of the Antichrist is that he sets up the image of jealousy in the very temple of God in Jerusalem, declaring himself to be Christ. Polluting God’s sanctuary is essentially what we do when we mate with men or women not ordained by God.

 

If you do not have a spiritual marriage, it is unholy matrimony

 

There is not much holy about matrimony these days.  Most of the time, when people choose their mates, they do so according to their natural minds. Even in a Christian setting, believers size up potential spouses according to their denomination, looks, wealth, family or position.  Rarely do people actually listen to the Holy Spirit and wed according to His design. God’s design always diametrically opposes natural minded reasoning.

Contrary to what many think, our choice of mate is not our private business, but God’s divine right.  God buys us with a price and we are not our own.  Therefore, in this most important area, we do not have the right to choose whom to marry without the express approval of the Holy Ghost. Anything less than a spiritual union misses the mark. This is “THE REASON” the divorce rate in the church is comparable to the divorce rate in the world. Rates are similar in and out of church because people marry through reason and not through revelation.

 

God created sex for His fulfillment

 

Again, contrary to what many believe, God created sex for Himself.   Intimacy, between a man and woman, was supposed to be sacred even with His full involvement. From the very beginning, because God would be present at the moment of conception, only those God joined together were to become one flesh.

God always meant that spiritual unions, like Adam and Eve, facilitate the greater union of God and man. This is the reason for the virgin birth. God overshadowed Mary and she conceived Christ, demonstrating the depth of spiritual union our Creator desired with mankind. God always purposed that when a man enters the Holy of Holies, there is He in the midst. If a man enters the holy place of a woman, without God’s express consent, he pollutes God’s temple and profanes her sacred place. This is the origin of all sexual sin.

To put it succinctly, God chooses our mates, we don’t. We miss the mark when we wed someone whom God does not approve of. God does not bless what He does not author.  When we force God to be present during unholy matrimony, we cause God pain and discomfort. What He made to be a blessing and sacrament turns into a travesty as we force God to partake of our sin. God ordained that He was to be present during love-making, and just as the sun always comes up on a sinful world, God is always present (in some degree) even when we mate with people He does not approve of.

 

Do not make marriage an idol before God

 

Marriage, as it is practiced in the Christian church, is an idol. We have made our version of “holy matrimony” a graven image that we serve more than God Himself.  We decorate it with all manner of trappings and adornments until it looks like the real thing.  “Brides” magazine amply demonstrates this truth. However, in the eyes of God, no matter how elaborately we decorate our earthly marriages, when we mate outside His will, we torment our heavenly lover.

In the next move of God we will experience Divine Love and, as a consequence, Divine Divorce.  As YHWH enters His temple everything that is not of Him must be removed. God resists those who choose to do what is right in their own eyes. The presence of God supernaturally dissolves unholy marriages.  Spiritual unions takes place as believers return to the path God ordains.  Opposition to spiritual unions is one reason, if not the reason, for the great falling away.

 

Will you choose God’s spiritual unions?

 

In conclusion, will you submit to the Holy Spirit and His spiritual unions or will you cling to what seems right to your natural mind? Will you allow God to cleanse your temple and make it holy or will you resist His will? We are all virtually in the same place and mindset of the pharisees of the first century. Many have their doctrine and beliefs, but few know God because they refuse to accept and do His will.
 
 

Is This What God Meant Marriage To be?
