From: Sophereth at Kirjath Sepher
To: those of His that seek this relationship…
. Ephesians 5:22-32 tells us that the intimate relationship between husband and wife in the natural, is a type of the intimate relationship between Messiah and the ekklesia in the realm of the Spirit. You can look at either one and see the other. The Lord tells us that this is a great mystery. The intimate relationship between Messiah and the ekklesia is spiritual. It is worship.
. without this intimate relationship, it is a marriage in name only. In the natural realm or in the Spirit realm.
. a man can hire a housekeeper to take care of the house, a cook, and someone to do the laundry. But it takes a bride to satisfy his hunger for the intimate relationship. In the natural realm or the Spirit realm.
. as we go on into Ezekiel, you will see the Lord making a division between those that will just be keepers of the house, and those that He will allow to draw near to Him, to come into His presence, to minister unto Him, to Worship Him.
. if we have not learned to worship Him, just the two of us, alone, in the secret place, how can we enter into true worship, in the secret place, as a congregation? We can’t. We cannot ride on the worship of someone else.
