Earthly Intimacy Mirrors Heavenly Love

Our Father is a God of design, He says,
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.”

Psalm 19:1


“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”

Romans 1:20


“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”

Psalm 139:14

When you look around yourself, heavenly design is everywhere. From the stars in the sky to the ants on the earth, all that God made speaks of who He is and what He values.

God is also a God of romance.   Solomon dedicated a whole book in the Bible to this notion. Solomon says,

There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not: The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid.”

Proverbs 30,18,19

Furthermore, Paul states,

For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.  For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.”

Ephesians 5:30-32

Holy sex is the greatest expression of heaven on earth

Holy sex is the greatest type, or picture, that God created of heavenly love.  God designed the intimate relationship between and man and a woman to picture the intimate relationship He hopes to have with us.  During intercourse, we see the heart of God and His nature illuminated by how a man is with a maid.  Our Father made us living, breathing representations of holy consummation. Our Creator designed climax to demonstrate a little bit of heaven on earth.

Satan perverts what should be holy sex and turns it into something people call “doing the nasty.”  Men are taught it is macho to conquer rather than to love.  Fem Fatale’s use their feminine charms to manipulate and subdue men rather than love them.  In short, the devil works overtime to make something very good seem very evil and disgusting.  My question to you is, “why?”

Bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh

The act of a man covering a woman portrays the depth of oneness that God yearns for with each one of us. Body, soul, and spirit unite in that moment of surrender as each person gives in to their passion and desire.  At that moment of bliss, saved and unsaved alike often exclaim “oh God, oh GOD!” as if to thank Him for the gift that is sex.

God’s design for this universe and everything in it centers on procreation. Everything in our lives revolves around finding our mate.  From childhood, girls thrill to Cinderella and young boys want to be knights in shining armor. The dynamic of love never leaves us even as we grow old. Despite what the media blares, men and women still hope to find their one true love to this very day.

The Bride of Christ should not be frigid towards God

In view of What God wants His bride to be, it is little wonder religion is so sexually repressive. Far from being comfortable with our role as Christ’s future wife, believers often feel that true purity amounts to being sexless.  Some people believe that being a nun is the purest form of loving God.  In fact, most Christians just assume that in heaven there will be no sex at all.  To be sure, the bride of Christ has only one love, but within that heavenly marriage bed her passion is unbridled.

Why is it important to talk about holy sex in this context?  That is a fair question.  The reason that God wants to discuss intimacy with His people is that He wants to love us through His Body (the Body of Christ).  God cannot love us in the way He desires if we are so prudish He can’t even hug us through one another.

We are a home, not a hospital

Church practices, at present, constitute a surface Christianity that is so antiseptic it bears more relationship to a hospital ward than to a family home.  We are regimented, collated, systematized and repressed by people hell bent to make us conform to their natural minded conception of “purity”. The true cost of this man-made, outward holiness, though, is that many can’t even relate to people of the highways and byways of this world any longer.  We don’t live where they live and our concepts of purity, like the person who side stepped the bleeding man on the road to Jericho, keeps us from having much to do with them.

Holy sex is intimate

Sex is intimate.  God created it to be so.  Spiritual intimacy with God is total surrender too.  Christians believe that surrendering their spirits and perhaps their hearts is all that God requires. Some sit beside other believers in church, who need to be held and comforted, fearing to reach out and hold them because church rules do not allow such intimacy.  All this “decent and in order” poppycock is literally killing us by preventing true discernment of Christ’s body.

Holy sex is a partnership

Sex is a partnership between a man and a woman on earth.  For lovers to enjoy each other fully, each has to please the other, and in so doing magic happens.  Likewise, with the Body of Christ, we must move together to please our Lord and only when we yield fully to His pleasure are we both satisfied.

Love without lust is foreign to our earthly mindsets.  The world constantly bombards us with acts of intimacy devoid of any shred of love that is worthy of such expression.  However, Godly intimacy is a sacred experience in which people actually care more about giving to the other person than themselves.  In this space, people do not cross lines that would hurt or compromise the one they love.

Holy sex requires profound trust

When you think of it, a woman in love opens up and welcomes her lover into her most sensitive and secret places.  Relationship engenders trust, allowing the man who loves her access to her body.  She covers and holds him like she did as one of Adam’s ribs so long ago. He enters her and makes her whole again and together they become one flesh.

Likewise, when we feel God’s love we naturally open up and allow Him to enter our most vulnerable spaces too.  Our relationship with Jesus engenders total trust, giving Him access to dwell inside our bodies.  As the Holy Spirit fills us, we cover Him, holding Him deep inside our bodies where our spirits unite as one.  We become vessels for His love. As God enters us we experience oneness.  Here is a truth,

Understanding why God made “holy sex” is a key to

understanding the mystery of the Bride of Christ

This is just a little of what the mystery of the church is all about. The reason sex is such a big component of false worship is because they know that intimacy on earth opens our spirits to the spiritual realm.  Really good sex is not just earthly pleasure, but also a spiritual experience.  For most people, they only experience the spirit as they orgasm with their partner. As their bodies unite, their spirits intermingle too.  That, along with physical release, brings a sense of total satisfaction to their relationship.

While pagans do not worship the one true God, they have found out that humans are made to function in certain ways.  God created women with a concentration of nerve endings to give her pleasure. Likewise, we are made with spiritual nerve endings to feel the spiritual realm in certain ways too.  Just like we feel our way during sex we also feel our way during spiritual experiences.  People that discount emotions in Christianity deny the way God created us.  Our experiences give us spiritual pleasure so that we will “desire” to open up, allowing God to have His way with us.

Don’t forsake intimacy just because some misuse it

Don’t allow the Devil to keep you from the full expression of your love for Jesus just because others, who do not know Him, misuse it. Intimacy with members of the Body of Christ, as you are led of the Spirit, is part and parcel with becoming one with God.

Presently, we stop what God is doing spiritually due to our natural minded rules and regulations. Remember, your body is not your own because you are bought with a price.  If God wants you to hug or kiss someone, even if they are not your spouse, who are you to gainsay or resist His Spirit?

The perfection of the saints

In conclusion, natural minded people worry about natural minded things because they do not walk in the Spirit.  Had Lucifer not shown up in Eden it would have been impossible for Adam (or Eve for that matter) to sin.  Perfect people do not do imperfect things. As believers come back into alignment with the Spirit of God we will also find it harder and harder to sin until we find it impossible to do so. This is the perfection of the saints.

Finally, allow God to be with you in more than an ethereal and existential way.  The Body of Christ is literally dying because we do not discern it.  Let yourself be moved by His Spirit to do whatever God wants without judgement or self-consciousness.  God knows what He is doing and you don’t have to worry.  Amen.
