Intimacy With Jesus
I had a vision begin a day or so ago and it has stuck with me so I am now posting it to this blog.
In this vision I saw a bride walking down the Isle to meet her groom waiting for her at the end. About half way down the Isle she stops and is overcome with fear. The fear that I sensed in the vision was the fear of the wedding nite.
This bride, as one may have already guessed is the church and the groom awaiting her is Jesus.
This has to do with the events that transpired in the garden. Note that it says the following.
25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.(NKJVS)
That all changed when they ate of the forbidden fruit which I believe should be called the fruit of religion.
Up to that point God’s glory had been their covering.
NKJV with Strong’s Psalms 8:5 5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
The word crowned here is the Hebrew word atar and it means to surround encompass or encircle.
There is nothing about us that Jesus doesn’t already know and therefore He is shock proof. Also worthy of note is when Jacob was wrestling with The Angel of the Lord he was asked his name. Jacobs response was my name is Jacob. What the Lord in essence was asking was who are you? His name meant liar, deceiver, grabber of the heal. However, after a night of wrestling with the Lord he went from being Jacob to now being Israel which means he who struggles with God. When he was honest and naked with the Lord the Lord changed his name.
It is not Jesus that puts the fear of intimacy with him in our hearts but the lies of religion and our own misguided beliefs.
Jesus longs for intimacy with His beloved. He is patiently waiting for His Bride to finish her walk down the isle.
