Christ is My Husband? But I’m a Dude Yo! Part 2

Hey buckaroos, if you haven’t read part one of this post, please do so before you read this.

Just as in a human marriage, there are some things that only exist between the two parties, so it is with our relationship with Christ. There are times in my walk in which I will be shown something or be given an insight or revelation or whatever, and I believe the Holy Spirit will prompt me to keep it to myself. In a sense He is saying: “no, don’t share this with anyone: it is just for you and me…” This obviously raises the level of emotional intimacy between him and I*. However, physical intimacy is an aspect of a marriage relationship as well, and the physical union of a husband and wife becoming one is a picture of our role as the Bride.

Scripture shows us that all creation was created through him and therefore every individual piece of creation reflects an aspect of him. (John 1, Col 1) I believe the male orgasm is a reflection the joy that Jesus has when he deposits himself/his seed into us. In intercourse, when a man climaxes, he also releases his seed into the woman. So Jesus has designed the male body to experience the most pleasure at the moment when he deposits some of himself into the woman. The nature of the Godhead (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) is to constantly be giving of themselves over to one another. It seems only natural that this bodily reaction is a reflection of the joy that Jesus gets when giving of himself to his people.

Just like between two physical people, the joy is twofold: the act in and of itself is fun, but joy also exists because there is the potential for the creation of new life. The union of two humans can lead to the birth of a child, and the union of Christ and his Bride can lead to new spiritual growth/fruit.

As a loving husband will not force himself on his wife, so Jesus will never force himself on us. We have to be a willing partner, just as a loving bride will desire to please her husband. As a believer, I truly desire to please my God and King. As such, my ability to receive from The Lord his leadings gives him an opportunity for joy. In a sense, by my receptivity to his leadings, I am a willing “partner.”

I have never been “in love” (whatever that means) in a romantic way with someone, but I imagine that if I did experience that, I would be willing to do pretty much anything for her; to love her, show her that I appreciate, value, and respect her. Especially in the beginning when the emotions were still high, I would actually enjoy bending over backwards to “prove” to her how sincere I was. The application with Jesus is clear: he allowed himself the physical pain as well as the emotional humiliation of being crucified. Thats definitely a husband I’m proud to call my own!

Again, this must be read with a pure heart (Titus 1:15: to the pure all things are pure). We live in a world where the beautiful gift of sex has been heavily polluted, and this post could be interpreted in a vulgar manner. Know that that is not my desire. My prayer for you reader (especially the men) is that this post will accentuate your relationship with your savior and move us towards becoming the pure and spotless Bride (Rev 19:8) that He so deserves.

With a loving ferocity,
Thomas

P.S. This is also why sexual activity outside of marriage is so evil; it represents a pollution of the intimate holy union that God desires with his people.

*One must be careful with this though, as often we will be given revelation specifically for the purpose of sharing with the Body so that we can eat/feed each other. So try to discern when to do one and when to do the other.

    Thankyou for being brave enough to share this brother! I too, by the Lord’s Grace have seen this picture and it is truly amazing! Even the act of kissing and caressing is mutual adoration between Christ and His Bride! And how the man enters inside the woman is a reflection of Christ in us! A mystery to behold! A hidden intimacy….in it’s purest form…..the rapture and speechlessness when the two behold one another in that glorious moment …… when she ‘receives’ Him, and His love! And how He delights in her delight!! And all the male parts are on the outside, as Christ has been made visible to all the world but the woman’s parts are internal, hidden, as the church is a spiritual body, she is His body!! He is her glory!! Bless you brother for sharing and for the great wisdom of keeping our intimacies with Christ sacred. Us Aussies down under, are praying for all you guys on this awesome journey you are on!

    yea I like to use that word-intercourse to describe our spirit union with Christ-but I can just sense the tension when I use it–oh how we need to get our minds out of the gutter.
