It never ceases to amaze me how many believers despise sex as somehow base and carnal. There seems to be a disconnect between believing we are the Bride of Christ and assuming that our relationship with God is non-sexual.  Holiness, to most, is the complete absence of physical touch and sexual intercourse.  However, the truth is that holiness is purity of heart, not absence of intimacy.  In fact, consummation with your God-given mate is required to be completely joined to God in the way He originally intended.

The union of God and man

To be fully one with God we must join with each other.  That is to say, in order to fulfill His first commandment to go forth, be fruitful, and multiple, we must become one with the mate of God’s choosing to bring forth after His kind.  During consummation we mate with each other and God, thus fulfilling His greatest commandment to conceive eternal souls bound together with His Spirit.  At the time of conception God joins with us and brings forth a spirit that will never die. This is only possible with God for only He is eternal.  When a woman exclaims “Oh my God” during orgasm, she worships her creator, giving thanks to Him for His eternal seed.  This is the union of God and man. 

The very basis and reason for marriage is physical union.

God says,

And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,  And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?  Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

Matthew 19:4-6

Therefore, the very basis and reason for marriage to God is also a physical/spiritual union.

After God’s kind

The “one flesh” spoken about in these verses refer to children.  When a man fills a woman with his seed she conceives in love, cherishing and fashioning a child.  The woman gives birth and then suckles the baby until such time as the child grows and becomes a physical representation of them both.  We all comment on how a child has features and different characteristics of both parents.  Likewise, the union of God and man produces offspring that share traits and characteristics of God and man. When you see Christ you see His Father.

The point of the virgin birth of Christ is that no “Man” knew marry, not that she did not have sex.  Of course marry had intercourse with God because their union produced a baby.  The sign of a intact hymen does not mean that the mother of Jesus did not have pleasure during their union.  In fact, Mary rejoiced at her union with God Almighty.

Mary rejoiced,

My soul doth magnify the Lord And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.  For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.   For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.  And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.  He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.  He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.  He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.  He hath helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;  As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.

Luke 1:46-55

The power of the Holy Spirit

Moreover, it is the power of the Holy Spirit that overshadowed Mary for the angel says,

“And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.”

Luke 1:35

In impregnating Mary God demonstrated, in the most intimate way possible, His desire to unite and procreate with Mankind.  As it was to be in the beginning, God showed us in the last days through the virgin birth of Christ.  The manner of birth of the pattern son is just as important as being God manifest in the flesh.

Union with God and man is the point of this creation and the reason that God made us in the first place.  We were never meant to be separated from God in and way, shape, or form.  What the Devil sought to accomplish through tempting Eve was to break that holy union and prevent God from having children.  Christ, in the final analysis, restored the union between God and man so that his Father’s original purpose could move forward.  Jesus saved his Father’s wife.

We shall know Him, for we shall be like Him

The Bride of Christ is the female version of God.  We are a help “meet” for Him.  We are predestined to be God’s mate and that is what every godly woman in the Bible typifies or portrays.  From Sarah to Esther to Ruth, these women are types and shadows of the greater bride to come, the wife of God.  Every woman desires to conceive.  The drive to bring forth children, even at the cost of great  pain, is present in every woman because she is made that way.  In the beginning, before sin, there was no pain in child-birth, only joy.  So it will be in the end when we are glorified and joined to our heavenly Bride Groom.  As we mate in eternity we will bring forth children, without pain, after our kind forever.

Purity and sex are one in the same.  Innocence and sensuality go hand in hand.  God is procreation.  This idea that holiness is lack of physical touch is antichrist.  In the restoration of Eden, i.e. the New Heavens and New Earth, everything is sensual, everything is procreation, all is intimate.  In that day God will proclaim,

“And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good….”

Genesis 1:31

Thy kingdom come

In conclusion, as the Bride of Christ we allow God to enter us with joy. We crave His Spirit.  Joining with our Heavenly Lover is the consummation of the ages.  Relationships in the world to come are at the behest of the Holy Spirit.  From friendship to intercourse all happens as His Spirit leads.  There can be no fornication nor adultery where the Spirit is.  God’s heavenly design is for us to be one with and in Him.  As God’s wife, we happily and joyfully bring forth Christ for our Husband throughout eternity.
