This is continued from the previous post. (You will find that as we are in a certain passage, I will basically just continue with a trail of thought for a while. I find that dwelling on a piece of scripture, almost making my home there for a while, really releases much revelation.)
Okay, so remember we are in the scene where God just finally deals with corruption in the world, and immediately, Jesus gets married to His Bride and essentially starts a new family for God. Adam and Even all over again.
So God gets to the end of His first attempt, and Bam!, He goes straight for it again. He is clearly yearning to have a family. There is no waiting even. No resting. No like, “Ah, now that that is over, I can just chill for a bit and rest before I think about starting a family again.” No, He goes straight into a new relationship so to speak. He has just come out of a very dysfunctional one, but yet, He goes straight into a new one. Just this time with the right person. A person who He knows will not “hurt” Him again. Someone who will not mess up like before. This time its with Jesus Christ, the second Adam. Someone He trusts. Someone who has proved Himself as completely loyal. Completely devoted and committed to Gods heart and desires. A Godman, completely surrendered to the will of His Father.
A Godman. Wow, that is amazing. I don’t even really know how to describe it. Lets look at it chronologically:
1) God desires family
2) God creates a man to populate a family
3) Man sins, God looses His family
4) God so desires family, He decides to become a man
5) Jesus Christ then brings forth a bride in the Earth
6) He chooses one from imperfect humans
7) And then cleanses Her by His own blood
8) He goes up to prepare a place for her in His Father’s house
9) He waits patiently while His Father prepares her for Him
10) He gets married to her and they start a new completely pure family together
11) And finally, God gets His Family!
One of the most powerful things in all of this is that God doesn’t choose to become a man, just so He can set the world free from sin, and then go back to being a God again only. No, he chooses to stay a man forever. Jesus Christ is a human being with a glorified body living in Heaven right now. (read that sentence again.) And He will be a human being forever. For all eternity God will essentially be a human. Just, so that He can be with us. If that is not supernatural, astronomical, TRUE LOVE, then I don’t know what is.
God, show us the complete insanity of your love. Give us words, pictures, concepts, or anything to help us really comprehend your love for us. Reveal to us the length and the depth, and the height and the width of your love which surpasses all knowledge. We just want to be caught up in it. We want it to blow our minds.
