Heart of the Ministry

“Jesus is Coming”

Our walk with the Lord is much like an earthly marriage relationship.  We begin by seeking that which we desire to be near.  We long for closeness and forsake all else for precious moments spent in the presence of the One we love.  His desire for us is likened to the desire that the Bridegroom has for His Bride – in fact, we ARE His Bride and He is our Bridegroom!  We desire to grow in our ‘Oneness’ with each other and with our Father as One, but for us, it’s even more than that.  We are called in our ministry to show others in the Body of Christ (The Bride of Christ, Ephesians 5:25-28) how to find that deep place of intimacy – that ‘Oneness’ with Him that He longs for.

To become one flesh takes a process.  It is not instant.  It occurs over time, a slow melting of two into one.   It takes the fire of God’s presence to totally transform us into the ‘one flesh’, the ‘two voices with one message’ that God has ordained for His couples.   It is not good enough to simply become legally married.   God’s desire for His children is to learn how to completely melt in the refiner’s fire and two become one.   This is the ultimate way to walk out the original design for mankind in Genesis 1:26 when God the Father says to the Son, and the Holy Spirit, “Let us, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit make mankind in our image, after our likeness, and let them have complete authority…”

Jesus is coming.  We exist to tell the world that He is returning and we must all be found ready.
