My Lover The Lord

Updated: May 14, 2022

A Spiritual Love Affair with the God Jesus


Jeremiah 3:13-15 Authorized (King James) Version 13 Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the Lord. 14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Lord; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion: 15 and I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.


Human beings were designed by God to have children through marriage (Gen. 1:26-28). People meet, fall in love and make children. Today, people have kids before they get married. But that's another sermon. My point in mentioning kids is the topic of sex in a love affair. In the Bible, marriage means sex. Today, love means sex. Marriage is supposed to come before sex. But that's another sermon. What I'm saying is that humans combine love with sex in a love affair. When a man and a woman are in love, they need to have sex with each other. When you're in love, you need to have sex as much as you eat. Including latenight snacks. But that's another sermon.

Today, God wants you to know that your relationship with Christ, is a love affair. God is in love with His people and the Holy Spirit makes us fall in love with God after we get born again (Rom. 5:5). Furthermore, the Lord also wants you to know today that sex is never involved in your love affair with the Lord Jesus.

Let's begin. In the following three scripture passages on what the human body will be like after the first resurrection, the Lord Jesus tells us that it will be a spiritual sexless body. According to God, your show your love for God not with sex as humans do, but with a heart completely devoted to Him. The love affair with God is sexless and purely spiritual. Marriage to God means to keep God first. Keep Jesus preeminent to life and people.

Furthermore, in these passages the Lord Jesus reveals to us that our new resurrection bodies will be like the angel's bodies in that they will not get married and never die in the next world, which is to say, that they are spiritual and eternal sexless bodies.

So, making love to God today, and in the world to come, through the Holy Spirit, is a non-sexual completely spiritual devoted life of intimate worship. Show Jesus how much He means to you by saying no to sin, and yes, this is how the angels of light have always worshiped God: with intimate and complete devotion. God is a spirit (Jn. 4:21-24) and His future wife (us Christians today) will have sexless, spiritual bodies after the first resurrection, like the angels do.

So, God isn't turning us Christians into women in the resurrection. Nor is the Lord Jesus going to make love to us after the resurrection the way that men do to their wives today. For the subject of making love to God, get the thought of sex with Jesus out of mind cos it's got nothing to do with marrying Jesus after the Rapture. Marriage to Christ is a spiritual union of two spirits, God and human becoming one in spirit (1 Cor. 6:12-20). God living in man and man living inside of God's Spirit (1 Cor. 3:16, 17).

The next three Bible passages are on the same subject called the resurrection of the just. Also called the First Resurrection (Rev. 20:4-6). I am pasting all three versions of this subject in the New Testament in biblical order because the Lord Jesus gives different insights about the resurrection body in each one that He wants you to know about today, so that you understand His marriage to you, and to also understand what it means to make love to God.

Discussion about Resurrection

23 That same day Jesus was approached by some Sadducees—religious leaders who say there is no resurrection from the dead. They posed this question: 24 “Teacher, Moses said, ‘If a man dies without children, his brother should marry the widow and have a child who will carry on the brother’s name’ (Dt. 25:5, 6). 25 Well, suppose there were seven brothers. The oldest one married and then died without children, so his brother married the widow. 26 But the second brother also died, and the third brother married her. This continued with all seven of them. 27 Last of all, the woman also died. 28 So tell us, whose wife will she be in the resurrection? For all seven were married to her.” 29 Jesus replied, “Your mistake is that you don’t know the Scriptures, and you don’t know the power of God. 30 For when the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage. In this respect they will be like the angels in heaven. 31 “But now, as to whether there will be a resurrection of the dead—haven’t you ever read about this in the Scriptures? God said, 32 ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’ (Ex. 3:6). So He is the God of the living, not the dead.” 33 When the crowds heard Him, they were astounded at His teaching.


Mark 12:18-27 New Living Translation Discussion about Resurrection

18 Then Jesus was approached by some Sadducees—religious leaders who say there is no resurrection from the dead. They posed this question: 19 “Teacher, Moses gave us a law that if a man dies, leaving a wife without children, his brother should marry the widow and have a child who will carry on the brother’s name (Dt. 25:5, 6). 20 Well, suppose there were seven brothers. The oldest one married and then died without children. 21 So the second brother married the widow, but he also died without children. Then the third brother married her. 22 This continued with all seven of them, and still there were no children. Last of all, the woman also died. 23 So tell us, whose wife will she be in the resurrection? For all seven were married to her.” 24 Jesus replied, “Your mistake is that you don’t know the Scriptures, and you don’t know the power of God. 25 For when the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage. In this respect they will be like the angels in heaven. 26 “But now, as to whether the dead will be raised—haven’t you ever read about this in the writings of Moses, in the story of the bush? God said to him, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’ (Ex. 3:6). 27 So He is the God of the living, not the dead. You have made a serious error.”


Luke 20:27-38 New Living Translation Discussion about Resurrection

27 Then Jesus was approached by some Sadducees—religious leaders who say there is no resurrection from the dead. 28 They posed this question: “Teacher, Moses gave us a law that if a man dies, leaving a wife but no children, his brother should marry the widow and have a child who will carry on the brother’s name (Dt. 25:5, 6). 29 Well, suppose there were seven brothers. The oldest one married and then died without children. 30 So the second brother married the widow, but he also died. 31 Then the third brother married her. This continued with all seven of them, who died without children. 32 Finally, the woman also died. 33 So tell us, whose wife will she be in the resurrection? For all seven were married to her!” 34 Jesus replied, “Marriage is for people here on earth. 35 But in the age to come, those worthy of being raised from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage. 36 And they will never die again. In this respect they will be like angels. They are children of God and children of the resurrection. 37 “But now, as to whether the dead will be raised—even Moses proved this when he wrote about the bush. He referred to the Lord asthe God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’ (Ex. 3:6). 38 So He is the God of the living, not the dead, for they are all alive to Him.”


God Wants a Spiritual Chaste Virgin in Christ

(2 Cor. 11:1-3)


In Eph. 5 the following passage, the Apostle Paul is making some points for God about our marriage to Him. You may not see it unless I point it out to you as the Holy Spirit pointed it out to me. The passage opens in verse 3 with a command to abstain from fornication. Then next warns us in verse 5 that whoremongers will not inherit the Kingdom of God. The point that I want to make to you for Jesus about this passage, is that in this passage, the first subject is about sex. The same verse tells us why: fornication and whoremonging are unclean coveting, and coveting is idolatry (Col. 3:5). Fornication and whoremonging, or, sexual impurity, are sins listed under "idolatry". Idolatry means to love life, people or sin, more than God (Ex. 20:3, 17).

This means that while we are married to Christ and commit fornication, we are committing the sin of idolatry (1 Thes. 4:1-9). We are worshiping sex and putting it before God. It is idolatry (Col. 3:5). To show God that we love Him, we need to obey Eph. 5 and stay sexually pure. This does not mean that we need to stay sexless and celibate in our union with God. The Bible says in Heb. 13:4 that marriage is of God and the marriage bed is undefiled. This means, that sex is for married people, and that you can express your perversions with your wife only, in order to honor God as first love in life. Whatever you do in bed when married, is undefiled before God.

To keep God first, keep sex within the confines of marriage. Having sex with your spouse isn't cheating on God, and having sex outside of marriage, or, adultery (adultery is a form of fornication, or, sexual uncleanness), is cheating on God because it's the sin of idolatry. When we commit sexual sin, we cheat on God because fornication is sin. To keep sex within marriage is how to love God and how to keep Him first in our heart because we then listen to God. We listen to who we love.

Eph. 5 ends talking about the mystery of our marriage to God being represented by a man's marriage to his wife. Eph. 5 is God's love letter to His church to keep our marriage to Jesus preeminent to our marriage to our spouse. Which means that we will not disobey God sexually but to keep it in marriage.


Ephesians 5 Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased}

1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; 2 and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given Himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. 3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; 4 neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater {Col. 3:5}, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them. 8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 9 (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) 10 proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. 14 Wherefore He saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. 15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19 speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20 giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 21 submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. 22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and He is the saviour of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: 30 for we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones. 31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.


A Christian Marriage

In Honor to God


1 Corinthians 7 Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased}

1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. 3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. 4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. 5 Defraud ye not one the other {by neglecting to satisfy the sexual needs of the other}, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again {in sexual fulfillment}, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. 6 But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment. 7 For I would that all men were even as I myself {celibate}. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner {celibacy}, and another after that {marriage}. 8 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I {in celibacy}. 9 But if they cannot contain {their sexual needs}, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn. 10 And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: 11 but and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away {divorce} his wife. 12 But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away. 13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. 14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. 15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A {Christian} brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace. 16 For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife? 17 But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches. 18 Is any man called being circumcised? let him not become uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? let him not be circumcised. 19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God. 20 Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called. 21 Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather. 22 For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord’s freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ’s servant. 23 Ye are bought with a price {the Blood of Christ}; be not ye the servants of men. 24 Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God. 25 Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord: yet I give my judgment, as one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful. 26 I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be. 27 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife. 28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such {the married} shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you {with my teaching on celibacy}. 29 But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none; 30 and they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not; 31 and they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away. 32 But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: 33 but he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife. 34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband. 35 And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction. 36 But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry. 37 Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in his heart, having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well. 38 So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better. 39 The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord. 40 But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.


Abstain From Fornication


Sexual Purity, Whether in Marriage or Celibacy, is How to Honor Your Marriage to Jesus


To abstain from fornication, we need to love God first. God wants us to love Him more than life (Lk. 14:25-35). More than the wife and more than family. When you do, your heart will not commit idolatry through fornication.

Another reason that the Apostle Paul lists fornication and whoremonging first in our sexless and spiritual marriage to God in Eph. 5:3-5, is because people call sex "Life's greatest thrill". Orgasm. That's what people want to feel because it releases stress. The Holy Spirit and the Anointing are life's greatest thrill. Not sex. Knowing Jesus is the meaning of life. God must mean more to you than sex in order to keep Him first in your heart, and this is the work of the Holy Spirit. Only the Holy Spirit can do this. God will complete the good work He began in you (Phil. 1:3-6; 2:12, 13).

To keep God first, the Holy Spirit will create in your heart a love for God that means more than life (Eze. 36:25-27). Only God can do this and I pray that God will lead you into a love for God than is stronger than life, so that you keep God first in your heart and abstain from idolatry to experience the fulness of your spiritual marriage to Jesus today.


1 Corinthians 6:12-20 New Living Translation

Avoiding Sexual Sin

12 You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is good for you. And even though “I am allowed to do anything,” I must not become a slave to anything. 13 You say, “Food was made for the stomach, and the stomach for food.” (This is true, though someday God will do away with both of them.) But you can’t say that our bodies were made for sexual immorality. They were made for the Lord, and the Lord cares about our bodies. 14 And God will raise us from the dead by his power, just as he raised our Lord from the dead. 15 Don’t you realize that your bodies are actually parts of Christ? Should a man take his body, which is part of Christ, and join it to a prostitute? Never! 16 And don’t you realize that if a man joins himself to a prostitute, he becomes one body with her? For the Scriptures say,The two are united into one” (Gen. 2:24). 17 But the person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him. 18 Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body. 19 Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, 20 for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.


More Scriptural Insight into the Nature of the Resurrection Body


1 Corinthians 15 New Living Translation

{Paraphrased} The Resurrection of Christ

1 Let me now remind you, dear {Christian} brothers and sisters, of the Good News I preached to you before. You welcomed it then, and you still stand firm in it. 2 It is this Good News that saves you if you continue to believe the message I told you—unless you never believed it in the first place. 3 I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. 4 He was buried, and He was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said. 5 He was seen by Peter {Cephas} and then by the Twelve. 6 After that, He was seen by more than 500 of the brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died. 7 Then He was seen by James and later by all the apostles. 8 Last of all, as though I had been born at the wrong time, I also saw Him. 9 For I am the least of all the apostles. In fact, I’m not even worthy to be called an apostle after the way I persecuted God’s church. 10 But whatever I am now, it is all because God poured out his special favor on me—and not without results. For I have worked harder than any of the other apostles; yet it was not I but God who was working through me by His grace. 11 So it makes no difference whether I preach or they preach, for we all preach the same message you have already believed.

The Resurrection of the Dead

12 But tell me this—since we preach that Christ rose from the dead, why are some of you saying there will be no resurrection of the dead? 13 For if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised either. 14 And if Christ has not been raised, then all our preaching is useless, and your faith is useless. 15 And we apostles would all be lying about God—for we have said that God raised Christ from the grave. But that can’t be true if there is no resurrection of the dead. 16 And if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised. 17 And if Christ has not been raised, then your faith is useless and you are still guilty of your sins. 18 In that case, all who have died believing in Christ are lost! 19 And if our hope in Christ is only for this life, we are more to be pitied than anyone in the world. 20 But in fact, Christ has been raised from the dead. He is the first of a great harvest of all who have died. 21 So you see, just as death came into the world through a man, now the resurrection from the dead has begun through another man. 22 Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life. 23 But there is an order to this resurrection: Christ was raised as the first of the harvest; then all who belong to Christ will be raised when He comes back. 24 After that the end will come, when He will turn the Kingdom over to God the Father, having destroyed every ruler and authority and power. 25 For Christ must reign until He humbles all His enemies beneath His feet. 26 And the last enemy to be destroyed is death. 27 For the Scriptures say, “God has put all things under His authority” {Ps. 8:6}. (Of course, when it says “all things are under His authority,” that does not include God Himself, who gave Christ His authority.) 28 Then, when all things are under His authority, the Son will put Himself under God’s authority, so that God, who gave His Son authority over all things, will be utterly supreme over everything everywhere. 29 If the dead will not be raised, what point is there in people being baptized for those who are dead? Why do it unless the dead will someday rise again? 30 And why should we ourselves risk our lives hour by hour? 31 For I swear, dear {Christian} brothers and sisters, that I face death daily. This is as certain as my pride in what Christ Jesus our Lord has done in you. 32 And what value was there in fighting wild beasts—those people in Ephesus—if there will be no resurrection from the dead? And if there is no resurrection, “Let’s feast and drink, for tomorrow we die!” {Isa. 22:13} 33 Don’t be fooled by those who say such things, forbad company corrupts good character.” 34 Think carefully about what is right, and stop sinning. For to your shame I say that some of you don’t know God at all.

The Resurrection Body

35 But someone may ask, “How will the dead be raised? What kind of bodies will they have?” 36 What a foolish question! When you put a seed into the ground, it doesn’t grow into a plant unless it dies first. 37 And what you put in the ground is not the plant that will grow, but only a bare seed of wheat or whatever you are planting. 38 Then God gives it the new body He wants it to have. A different plant grows from each kind of seed. 39 Similarly there are different kinds of flesh—one kind for humans, another for animals, another for birds, and another for fish. 40 There are also bodies in the heavens and bodies on the earth. The glory of the heavenly bodies is different from the glory of the earthly bodies. 41 The sun has one kind of glory, while the moon and stars each have another kind. And even the stars differ from each other in their glory. 42 It is the same way with the resurrection of the dead. Our earthly bodies are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live forever. 43 Our bodies are buried in brokenness, but they will be raised in glory. They are buried in weakness, but they will be raised in strength. 44 They are buried as natural human bodies, but they will be raised as spiritual bodies. For just as there are natural bodies, there are also spiritual bodies. 45 The Scriptures tell us, “The first man, Adam, became a living person” {Gen. 2:7}. But the last Adam—that is, Christ—is a life-giving Spirit. 46 What comes first is the natural body, then the spiritual body comes later. 47 Adam, the first man, was made from the dust of the earth, while Christ, the second man, came from heaven. 48 Earthly people are like the earthly man, and heavenly people are like the heavenly man. 49 Just as we are now like the earthly man, let us be like the heavenly man. 50 What I am saying, dear {Christian} brothers and sisters, is that our physical bodies cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. These dying bodies cannot inherit what will last forever. 51 But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We will not all die, but we will all be transformed! 52 It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed. 53 For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies. 54 Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die, and our mortal bodies have been transformed into immortal bodies, this Scripture will be fulfilled: Death is swallowed up in victory {Isa. 25:8}. 55 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? {Hos. 13:14}” 56 For sin is the sting that results in death, and the {Torah of Moses} gives sin its power. 57 But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 So, my dear {Christian} brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.


Who is God's Wife?

YOU ARE GOD'S WIFE (Rev. 21:24)

"...the nations of them which are saved..."

Every Believer in Jesus, Jew and Gentile, is the Bride of Christ


Revelation 21 Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased}


The Bride of Christ

1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 5 And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 6 And He said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be My son. 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. 9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s {Christ's} wife. 10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; 12 and had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 13 on the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb {Christ}. 15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. 16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. 17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. 18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. 19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; 20 the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. 21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. 22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb {Christ} is the light thereof. 24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. 25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. 26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. 27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s {Christ} book of life.


What Is a Life of Intimate Spiritual Devotion to the Lord Jesus Like?


Philippians 3:7-15 New International Version


Knowing Jesus 7 But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 8 What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the {Torah of Moses}, but that which is through the faithfulness of Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith. 10 I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of His resurrection and participation in His sufferings, becoming like Him in His death, 11 and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead. 12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 {Christian} Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Following Paul’s Example

15 All of us, then, who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you.


A Closing word from the Lord:


Hello to the Lord's beloved. A couple days after I finished writing this prophecy to you for the Lord, He suddenly spoke to me before sleep and reminded me of Scriptures about jewels. The Lord told me that the jewels in the Bible represent Him preparing His bride for His return. The Lord asked me to put this message here at the end of this prophecy for you. In the following Bible passages I will explain to you the understanding that the Holy Spirit gave to me about the meaning of these jewels.

According to the Lord in Joel 2, the Holy Spirit says that just before the return of the Lord Jesus, that God would pour out His Spirit upon all flesh, and that our sons and daughters will prophecy, our old men will dream dreams and our young men will see visions. But what will the prophecies, dreams and visions be about? What will the young men see? What will the old men dream about? What are the prophecies that our sons and daughters will get from the Lord?

Joel 2 is about the last days just before the Day of the Lord begins. The day of the Lord is about the Lord Jesus returning to earth and the prophecies, dreams and visions will be given by the Holy Spirit to all flesh TO PREPARE THE CHURCH FOR THE RETURN OF THE LORD JESUS. The sons, daughters, old men and young men will see visions of scary things in the sky and on earth. Blood, fire and pillows of smoke. Of the sun turning black and moon turning blood red, and of the Lord Jesus coming back to earth on a great and terrible day (Joel 2:28-31).

The Lord told me a couple years ago that Joel 2 is about the Rapture, and the insight today from the Holy Spirit that I want to give to you about Joel 2, is that the prophecies, dreams and visions coming from the Godhead today about the Rapture, are telling us that we are that generation prophesied in Joel 2 that have those prophecies, dreams and visions about the Lord's return, and to prepare for it. Can I get an Amen!?

Have you had dreams and visions about the sun turning black or the moon turning red? About the Day of the Lord? Or, about two suns in the sky? One is Christ and the other is the sun? Or, about jewels? A beautiful woman looking in the mirror and putting on jewels before going to the wedding supper? Or, Jesus telling you your sin to repent of to make the Rapture? Or, God leaving you in the Rapture? Or, Jesus giving you your new name in heaven and calling you "shame"? "Your new name is 'shame'". That's a dream about you not making the Rapture.

There are so many prophecies, dreams and visions given by the Godhead today to the world that I cannot write them all here. But my point is that we today are that generation prophesied in Joel 2 to be prophesying, dreaming and seeing visions of the Lord's return.

I've had three so far. But I have the gift of prophesy today and I get words and messages from the Holy Spirit instead of dreams and visions like I used to. Under both Mantles I've received visions of the Rapture from the Lord.


Joel 2 Living Bible


The Rapture

1 Sound the alarm in Jerusalem! Let the blast of the warning trumpet be heard upon my holy mountain! Let everyone tremble in fear, for the day of the Lord’s judgment approaches. 2 It is a day of darkness and gloom, of black clouds and thick darkness. What a mighty army! It covers the mountains like night! How great, how powerful these “people” are! The likes of them have not been seen before, and never will again throughout the generations of the world! 3 Fire goes before them and follows them on every side! Ahead of them the land lies fair as Eden’s Garden in all its beauty, but they destroy it to the ground; not one thing escapes. 4 They look like tiny horses, and they run as fast. 5 Look at them leaping along the tops of the mountain! Listen to the noise they make, like the rumbling of chariots, or the roar of fire sweeping across a field, and like a mighty army moving into battle. 6 Fear grips the waiting people; their faces grow pale with fright. 7 These “soldiers” charge like infantry; they scale the walls like picked and trained commandos. Straight forward they march, never breaking ranks. 8 They never crowd each other. Each is right in place. No weapon can stop them. 9 They swarm upon the city; they run upon the walls; they climb up into the houses, coming like thieves through the windows. 10 The earth quakes before them and the heavens tremble. The sun and moon are obscured and the stars are hid. 11 The Lord leads them with a shout. This is his mighty army, and they follow his orders. The day of the judgment of the Lord is an awesome, terrible thing. Who can endure it? 12 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me all your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, mourning. 13 Let your remorse tear at your hearts and not your garments.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and merciful. He is not easily angered; he is full of kindness and anxious not to punish you. 14 Who knows? Perhaps even yet he will decide to leave you alone and give you a blessing instead of his terrible curse. Perhaps he will give you so much that you can offer your grain and wine to the Lord as before! 15 Sound the trumpet in Zion! Call a fast and gather all the people together for a solemn meeting. 16 Bring everyone—the elders, the children, and even the babies. Call the bridegroom from his quarters and the bride from her privacy. 17 The priests, the ministers of God, will stand between the people and the altar, weeping; and they will pray, “Spare your people, O our God; don’t let the heathen rule them, for they belong to you. Don’t let them be disgraced by the taunts of the heathen who say, ‘Where is this God of theirs? How weak and helpless he must be!’” 18 Then the Lord will pity his people and be indignant for the honor of his land! 19 He will reply, “See, I am sending you much corn and wine and oil, to fully satisfy your need. No longer will I make you a laughingstock among the nations. 20 I will remove these armies from the north and send them far away; I will turn them back into the parched wastelands where they will die; half shall be driven into the Dead Sea and the rest into the Mediterranean, and then their rotting stench will rise upon the land. The Lord has done a mighty miracle for you.” 21 Fear not, my people; be glad now and rejoice, for he has done amazing things for you. 22 Let the flocks and herds forget their hunger; the pastures will turn green again. The trees will bear their fruit; the fig trees and grapevines will flourish once more. 23 Rejoice, O people of Jerusalem, rejoice in the Lord your God! For the rains he sends are tokens of forgiveness. Once more the autumn rains will come, as well as those of spring. 24 The threshing floors will pile high again with wheat, and the presses overflow with olive oil and wine. 25 “And I will give you back the crops the locusts ate!—my great destroying army that I sent against you. 26 Once again you will have all the food you want. “Praise the Lord, who does these miracles for you. Never again will my people experience disaster such as this. 27 And you will know that I am here among my people Israel, and that I alone am the Lord your God. And my people shall never again be dealt a blow like this. 28 “After I have poured out my rains again, I will pour out my Spirit upon all of you! Your sons and daughters will prophesy; your old men will dream dreams, and your young men see visions. 29 And I will pour out my Spirit even on your slaves, men and women alike, 30 and put strange symbols in the earth and sky—blood and fire and pillars of smoke. 31 “The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon to blood before the great and terrible Day of the Lord shall come. 32 “Everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved; even in Jerusalem some will escape, just as the Lord has promised, for he has chosen some to survive.


My Three Visions of the Rapture


Briefly, the first vision that I had about the Rapture was in California while sleeping in a hotel in the evening in 1997. I had this dream after church on a Wednesday night in the Fall. Bible Assembly in South Gate, CA. I was living in Lynwood, CA next to South Gate in a GR hotel called the Apache Inn with some other parolees.

I went to sleep after eating when I got back from church. I was watching TBN and I fell asleep with the TV on. The volume level on the TV intercepted my dream with the word. That was the Holy Spirit giving me a vision. A preacher was reading Isaiah 26 on TBN and his message was about the day of the Lord. Isaiah 26 is about the day of the Lord's return. So, I saw Isaiah 26 in my vision. The Lord spoke Isaiah 26 to me through a TV while I slept. I try that every once in a while and I'll dream about the word I hear on TV in my sleep. People dream about what they sense while sleeping. By sense, I mean what people hear, feel taste and smell, they dream about.

I remember seeing a big earthquake all over the world in this first vision and the bones buried beneath the earth over thousands of years were flying out of the earth because the earthquake cracked all the way down the earth's crust. It split the earth up and opened it and removed it out of its place. The earthquake threw everything buried inside the earth all over the surface. I saw Isaiah 26 in a vision. A vision of the Rapture and of the Lord Jesus' return to earth.


Isaiah 26:19-21 Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased} 19 Thy dead men shall live, together with My dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. 20 Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. 21 For, behold, the Lord cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.


The second vision that I had about the Rapture was in 1999 in prison in California for a DUI w/ priors, I had a vision while I was asleep of the sky at night. All the stars suddenly started zigzagging across the sky very fast. It looked like a puzzle. This is how the stars look at night during an earthquake. Back then, when I was an evangelist, I thought that God was telling me with this vision to leave state after I paroled to avoid the "Big One". The big earthquake that will destroy Los Angeles that everyone believes is going to happen soon. But He didn't say that. No earthquake like that has happened yet. That was my presumption to myself about that vision. But recently, in my new prophet's call, the Lord did tell me that this vision was His message to me at that time about the Rapture and the earthquake that happens will happen on the day of Jesus' return. The Lord told me that this vision is taken from Rev. 6:12-17.


Revelation 6:12-17 New International Version

{Paraphrased} 12 I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13 and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. 14 The sky departed like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. 15 Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. 16 They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us {Hos. 10:8} from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who can withstand it?”


The third vision I had was last year, 2021. I was in the sky standing with an Angel and I saw the Rapture from the sky (this could mean that I'm dying before the Rapture as the dead in Christ rise first - 1 Thes. 4:16. I already had my new resurrection body in the vision and was watching the Rapture happen in it to the living Christians with an Angel. I think it was Michael). I saw white spirits coming out of their bodies, not out of their graves, and flying to the sky, to heaven. The spirits were human shaped with no hair, eyes, mouths, ears, or noses and they were buzzing like lightning does. It was an electrical hum of power coming from them. After their spirits came out of their bodies, their bodies died and turned into a lifeless black ash rubber and fell to the earth that resembled a dummy. They were at first praising God in English, or, in their own native tongues, just before they were raptured, and then when their spirits came out of their bodies, they began to praise Jesus in tongues.

And what I saw on the earth in the Rapture in this vision, is that the Orientals were the biggest race on earth, and I saw that the majority of Christians coming to heaven in the Rapture, were Oriental. But after their spirits came out of their bodies, they were ghosts and no longer Oriental. I also saw the other races coming to heaven out of their bodies in the Rapture, and they were Mexican, African, Caucasian, Native American, Samoan, every race and tribe on earth made the Rapture. But the same thing happened to them, That is, when their new spiritual bodies came out of their flesh bodies, they spoke the same tongue language as the Orientals and they looked just like the Oriental spirits. That is, no race or physical features. But they could talk, hear, see, smell, touch and eat. There will be no physical race nor any racism in heaven.

I don't recall any verses in the Bible that say that the majority race on earth going to heaven in the Rapture will be Oriental. But I think the Lord revealed knowledge and mysteries to me through prophecy (1 Cor. 13:2) in this vision for a few reasons. First, God changed my Anointing and calling in Christ in 2003 when I moved from L.A. to Ft Berthold, my Reservation in North Dakota.

My calling was an Evangelist in LA. I was made a prophet in 2003 on my Reservation. I was made a prophet on the phone through other prophets and I was sent reading material in the mail on how to hear the spirits, or, how to develop the gift of prophecy. It was not instant. It was spiritual acceleration.

God and the angels are spirits (Jn. 4:4/ Heb. 1:13, 14). When they talk to prophets, the prophet has to be able to hear spirits speak. It's a spiritual gift of the Holy Spirit called prophecy (Read 1 Cor. chapters 12-14 on prophecy, tongues, the tongues of angels and the interpretation of tongues and all 9 gifts of the Spirit).

Not everyone can hear the spirits. Only prophets can. Evangelists cannot. The Interpretation of Tongues and the Tongues of Angels (1 Cor. 12:10; 13:2) are also my gifts as a prophet needs these to interpret the languages of the angel's speaking prophecies and messages for the Lord to the church. The Holy Spirit interprets the tongues to the spirit of your mind. Spirits are the source of prophecies. God and the angels. They are called "the spirits of the prophets" in 1 Cor. 14:31-33. My point is that 1 Cor. 13:2 teaches that all mysteries and all knowledge come through prophecy. I believe that through this vision that the Lord revealed two mysteries to us. 1) that I'm dying before the Rapture happens (1 Thes. 4:13-18), and 2) that the majority of Christians going to heaven in the Rapture are Oriental. All races should respect that truth.

Here is a Scripture passage that I will give to explain this vision that shows that the Rapture bodies (which the following passage calls resurrection bodies) are spiritual and not human.


1 Corinthians 15:35-58 New International Version

{Paraphrased} The Resurrection Body

35 But someone will ask, “How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?” 36 How foolish! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. 37 When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else. 38 But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body. 39 Not all flesh is the same: People have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds another and fish another. 40 There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another. 41 The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor. 42 So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; 43 it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; 44 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being” {Gen. 2:7}; the last Adam, {Christ} a life-giving spirit. 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth; the second man is of heaven. 48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the heavenly man, so also are those who are of heaven. 49 And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so let us bear the image of the heavenly man. 50 I declare to you, {Christian} brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the {spiritual} kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. 51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We {Christians} will not all {die}, but we will all be {physically} changed — 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we {Christians who are alive when this happens} will be {physically} changed {with them}. 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory” {Isa. 25:8}. 55 “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” {Hos. 13:14} 56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory {over sin and death} through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.


One Rapture dream going around the earth today from the Lord in particular that the Lord wants to talk to you about here tonight, is about the Rapture in the form of Jewels. The Lord said this message is about Him adoring His Bride for the Rapture. The dreams that I've read about concerning the Jewels of the Lord, as I said, are 1) of a beautiful bride looking in the mirror and putting on her necklace. Then opening the door and entering the wedding chambers to get married and then to eat at the wedding supper after the marriage.

The other dream, as I said, is a dream or vision of beautiful piece of unearthly jewelry. It's beautiful like a painting. But it is not from earth. It looks alien, extraterrestrial, or, like an angelic medallion. This jewel is how the church looks to God. Not from this world and beautiful. "Jeru-shalom" My beautiful", says the Lord (Jn. 17:16/ Song 6:4).

With that in mind, let's continue to the passages on the Lord's Jewels. First before I do, I want to tell you a vision that I got about angels the other day. It comes from Lk. 20:34-36 where the Lord Jesus reveals that the resurrection bodies of the church will be like the angel's bodies in that they will be spiritual, sexless and cannot die. Marriage ends after this life.

I saw the message as it was being spoken. Angels, beautiful like women stood around in colored wedding gowns showing me their necklaces and said that the Lord gives jewels to all of His wives. They showed me the jewels and they looked strange and pretty. They then said that the Lord Jesus makes these personally for each angel. They ended by saying that the Lord has jewels like these to adorn the church for the Rapture.


Christ Adorning His Bride for the Rapture


Isaiah 61:10 Authorized (King James) Version 10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh Himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.


Malachi 3:16-18 Authorized (King James) Version

{Paraphrased}

16 Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon His Name. 17 And they shall be Mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up My jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. 18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth Him not.


Insight


The Lord is saying in this passage that the Lord will spare, or, save those that fear Him and that think upon His Name and turn them into His family on a day when He makes His Jewels. God's church are the jewels. The Lord has a day when He will adorn His servants as Bride for the Rapture. The Rapture is the day that the Lord is talking about in this passage. This is what the Rapture prophecies, dreams and visions of today are revealing. The Bride adorning herself with jewels in Isaiah 6 means that the Lord is giving the ornament and garment of salvation to His Bride. The Lord has a day in mind to do this. The Rapture.


The Lord's Jewels


Job 29:13-15 Authorized (King James) Version 13 The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy. 14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem. 15 I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame.


Isaiah 28:4-6 Authorized (King James) Version 4 and the glorious beauty, which is on the head of the fat valley, shall be a fading flower, and as the hasty fruit before the summer; which when he that looketh upon it seeth, while it is yet in his hand he eateth it up. 5 In that day shall the Lord of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the residue of his people, 6 and for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.


Isaiah 62:2-4 Authorized (King James) Version 2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name. 3 Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God. 4 Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzi-bah, and thy land Beulah: for the Lord delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.


As it was in the beginning, is now

And ever shall be.

World without end. Amen.
