Jesus is NOT my husband, or yours!

married to jesus

OK, let’s just clear something up today. When the scriptures refers to The Church as the “bride of Christ”, that is a reference to the collective body of Believers. The true meaning of this scripture can be found all the way back in Genesis 2:24,

“This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.” 

Remember that Messiah is referred to as the second Adam and the ultimate purpose of His return, is that at the end of life on earth, we can return to being one with Him. That is why He said in heaven we will neither marry, nor be given in marriage. However, the marriage between Christ and His bride cannot take place until we shed these corrupt bodies of flesh and put on our new heavenly bodies when in a moment we shall be changed and be like Him!. Once we become like Him, finally we will be prepared for that beautiful marriage as One Body of Believers with our One True Husband… and what a glorious day that will be, Hallelujah!!!

Nevertheless, marriage between humans is for the earth and for the flesh. THERE IS ONE THING AND ONE THING ONLY that separates the marriage relationship from every other relationship – SEX. The blood covenant bond created through sexual intercourse is the one and only thing that sets the marriage relationship apart. This is a right and a privilege that can only be blessed and spiritually legal when shared between a man and woman committed to each other in monogamy for life.

Having said that, when someone says “I need/want a husband, or I need/want a wife” please DO NOT respond with “Jesus is your husband or Jesus is all you need.” If you do, you are just being DSI (Deep, Spooky and Ignorant)! If Jesus can’t literally lay in your bed and physically and sexually penetrate you, then He cannot be your husband or wife! Consummation of a marriage on earth requires the blood covenant of physical intercourse, so please…

One thought on “Jesus is NOT my husband, or yours!

  1. Joshua says:

    Yeah this is real talk..Paul said in 1 Corinthians 7:32-34 the unmarried man and woman cares only how they may please the Lord and keeping themselves Holy body and spirit.However being in my 30’s I desire a wife however the Bible says those who seek the Lord shall not want ANY good thing. I want fulfillment however not at the expense of just a sexual connection , Platonic is the unspoken language.
