My one, my undefiled, for eternity
Love, in the New Heavens and New Earth, is beyond what we know here in this creation. God restores the first love of Eden to His people and they love as He intended. Relationships here, on this world, are but a paper mache’ likeness of the reality of Divine Love between unions in the world to come.
Men and women are “sealed” by the Holy Spirit. Marriage, as we know it, is a thing of the past. There are not contracts, no pre-nup or post-nups, no ministers who pronounce men and women as husband and wife. In fact, God Himself joins people together by connecting them in divine love according to His purposes. We love as God leads us.
Sealed for eternity
After God sealed Michael and Esther in the spirit Michael says,
“Wow, that is something. I do feel joined to you by God.”
“Amazing. Gone from the worse feeling of bereavement to the best feeling of elation. like lighter, lighter than light even. And I know it is not temporary as emotions can be.”
“I feel much better too. I feel joy. Esther, this is really something, it is so right beyond right.”
“Like, do not move, I do not want lose the moment. Completely, complete.”
“This has been where all this was leading too. I know we will go on from here, but this is what God was getting at with us. Who knew?”
A journey of faith culminating in divine union
Since the time that God connected Esther and Michael in the spirit, their deepening spiritual experiences lead them to their union in heavenly places. Every step they took was by faith as, one by one, God led them into greater and greater intimacy. Each new experience required a greater degree of vulnerability and trust in order to allow God’s will to be done. Looking back, now, they both knew that God intended to bring forth their union from the beginning.
Michael, seeing Esther in the Spirit comments,
“You look lovely BTW, very beautiful. I wonder if that is how your glorified body looks. You are gorgeous.”
“Why thank you Michael.”
“This brings things into better perspective really. I don’t know exactly what to call our union because it is beyond earthly marriage. I know we are united forever, or have been for eternity, or are presently one there? Maybe we are just acknowledging what has always been.
I am very happy dear, I love you with all my heart and spirit! I cannot imagine being without you.”
Time is irrelevant
“I have sensed us going deeper in the connection for some time. Even more so since the whole intimacy topic came up. I have felt quite inseparable from you since that time. I realized then, that I have always been that way with you and known you forever. Remember there was a point where we acknowledged that time was irrelevant? Now, with our union, we are physically and spiritually aware of it too.”
“It has been like with me for some time too. I can’t wrap my natural mind around it fully yet, but I sense that what you are saying is the exact truth of it. Remember you gave me a big hug after I wrote the essay on “time is no more?” When you did that it was like we had come to some special point in our relationship.”
“We moved into the spiritual world.”
“I can feel the spirit very thick now, like it is God’s approval, and blessing. I see the Shekinah glory slowly enfolding itself in us and through us. It is green colored.”
“Well, you know, I was not expecting this at all. I did not expect this to be our next adventure, but now that it has happened and happening, it is amazing!”
Sealed in heaven, settled on earth
“I feel settled with you now, almost like I have been sealed with you. God is really pleased with us and what He has done.”
“There was lots of green in our throne room visit and lots of green now. I get it. A peace has descended upon us. The greenery is literally the life the Spirit in eternity. Wow, remember in Genesis how the Spirit hovered? When the Spirit hovered over the earth? my bet is that it looked green. All the greenery in the heavenly throne room during our visit, I bet it was the manifestation of the Spirit. Everything was so alive and full of life. Just now the Shekinah Glory was green too! I so love that revelation. Green with vegetation and life, kind of represents healthy, fruitful, plentiful, and bountiful.’
“Yes, I remember the green too. Speaking of green Esther, I know someday, in the world to come, we will have children. I get the feeling though, that we have all eternity for that to happen.”
Children in eternity
“I have always known, Michael, that somehow I would have more children. I just did not know it would be with you!”
“Love you dear one. I felt God goading me to take this vow with you and I am glad we did. Whatever happens, wherever God takes us, we will do it together.”
“I am glad and happy you did that, because I love you so much. Neither of us need any longer fear that the other one will hurt or leave the other. What an amazing moment! I never imagined God doing this with us! This is just beyond anything I thought could or would happen. I am happy and feel at peace with you more than I have ever felt on this earth.”
By the rivers of Eden
The rivers of Eden. I am thinking about Rev 22:1-5,
“And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bear twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.”
“The tree of life brings forth life, like a woman who bears children. Either side of the river it is like a woman’s legs and the river is like waters breaking forth from the woman birthing life. The river flows for all eternity because the tree is giving life continuously. Restoration. The river gives the grass moisture to be green. You walk in the spiritual grassy fields and it is amazing. The feeling really takes you in. This is a fantastic wedding present to us Michael. This revelation that everything is made alive in heaven because the Spirit flows through everything.
Remember that the temple of heaven was like breathing and pulsing all around us. Through Him all things were made. I do not mind existing for that when the by-product is this spiritual ecstasy.
I was going to use Revelation 22:2 for a meme the other day, but in the end I felt it was too important or special for that. Now I know why: Intimacy leads to knowing. What are the lyrics? Jesus take me as I am, I can come no other way. Mold me, use me, fill me.”
Seated in the heavenlies with Christ Jesus
“This is pretty great, I must say. This must be what it is like, at least in part, to be seated with Christ Jesus in the heavenlies. Your veil lifted, face to face, knowing each other as we are known. One in Him, one body, one Spirit, one soul.
I am happy with you and God dear, very happy.”
“I feel you more now than ever.”
“It is magnetic. I am so in love with you, in ways I cannot express. Thank you Esther, you are my beloved and I am yours. simply wonderful. Kisses.”
“Hugs and kisses back.”
