If there is NO marriage in the resurrection, then why is the marriage of the Lamb in the resurrection?
The Hebrew word for 'know' implies marriage intimacy. Is that the meaning in Mt 7?QuoteMt 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Why would he say Ï have never been intimate with you, if the marriage wasn't until later?
Aren't the goals of the marriage to be 'fruitful and multiplying"? Isn't the church now supposed to have the fruit of the Spirit? and multiply by making disciples?
Isn't marriage becoming one flesh? So what is the body of Christ now?
This is awesome !! Now is the time , even back than
I know Paul was speaking of making them chaste virgins for Christ , pure minded for that intimacy 2Corh 11
1I wish that you would bear with me in a little foolishness; but indeed you are bearing with me.
2For I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy;
for I betrothed you to one husband, so that to Christ I might present you as a pure virgin.
3But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.
the 5 wise and 5 foolish parable ?
I do believe the examples are in the scriptures comparing spiritual law with spiritual things
I see the example of the Woman born under law applies , the law is spiritual , but we are children underbondage the Agars as the earthly Jerusalem and as Ishmaels according to the flesh , those are the adopted sons so there you go !!
Gal 4 …3So also we, while we were children, were held in bondage under the elemental things of the world.
4But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law,
5so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.…ABBA FATHER
as servants to sons to the glory of God in the earth/ natural as it is in heaven /spiritual and the discerning between the two .
Now the awesome part to me is , Birthing those sons of glory by the MOTHER OF US ALL NEW JERUSALEM !! We are no longer under the elements that must be melted with fervent heat , the LOVE OF GOD and consuming fire being HOLY SPIRIT pure and holy intimacy = conception
The heavenly one The true ...Isaacs the spirual children of Gods promise and inherit" all things " http://www.abarim-publications.com/Meaning/Isaac.html#.VTtx9yFViko
The ones that are friends of the bridegroom represent / the prophets =John the baptist , them preachers still exist today as the wilderness preachers and friend of Christ "those that prepare the way to the coming of CHRIST , and they are the least of the kingdom
according to Jesus own word here … We everyone are" born of woman under the law" or headship and authority of HOLY SPIRIT WITNESS
Matt 11 10"This is the one about whom it is written, 'BEHOLD, I SEND MY MESSENGER AHEAD OF YOU, WHO WILL PREPARE YOUR WAY BEFORE YOU.' 11"Truly I say to you, among those born of women there has not arisen anyone greater than John the Baptist!
Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 12"From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force.
I see the kingdom of God as a spiritual realm with those healed and given eyes to see and ears to hear and heart to understand / perceive and receive the promises " all things "of the Spirit as inheriting spiritual gifts though Jesus Christ
