TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I Am Three in One. I created you in My image when I created man, woman and the Church. Together, we are complete in the fullness of eternal promise.
TO BE ALONE
I have officiated hundreds of weddings in my 20 years in ministry. I have also attended a few, and one thing I can be certain of: Genesis 2:23-24 will be preached.
It’s beautiful the way God knew it was not good to be alone. If it wasn’t good for Him, it sure wouldn’t be good for the first man, Adam. It’s amazing how the Lord made woman. She completed Adam and, together, they completed God’s family. He was their Groom. They were His bride.
But because of their rebellion, sin and death entered the world and corrupted everything – especially their relationship with their Groom. Thousands of years in the future, Jesus Christ – the second man Adam – would actually complete the mission of the first Adam, to have a bride.
Jesus hung on the cross and when His side was pierced, blood and water mixed came out and the Bride of Christ – the Church – was born.
The whole point of humanity is not just to be His servants. That’s what the Lord has angels for. The point of humanity is for you and me to be His Bride. He wants to share all that He has with you.
My friends, it’s not crazy to seek God in a radical way. That’s what romance is all about and that’s what God Almighty created you for. He is love. Love requires intimacy – a special secret place of relationship. Why? Because it is not good for you to be alone. Seek Him and you’ll find Him.
For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. – 2 Corinthians 11:2
