BRIDAL INTIMACY


"The time is approaching I will no longer call you My bride for you will become My wife. I call you to the wedding feast, I await your R.S.V.P"
 
Confinement, solitude, seclusion. Words that speak of coming into a place of stillness. Without this place the true Bride will not know the heart of her Beloved. The place of intimacy is the hearts refuge and protection for the divine seed (Word), having already been placed within the womb (heart) of Love by the hearing of this Word.
 And so it must be also with those chosen to go forth, many deaths and many resurrections.
HE MUST BREAK IN ( PLANTS THE SEED), AND UNTIL THIS SEED SPENDS MANY DAYS IN THE WOMB OF PRAYER IT WILL NOT BIRTH LIFE IN THE SPIRIT, AND ONLY THEN WILL HE BREAK OUT. He searches for the one who is waiting for Him in the Secret Place
 
 
Acute loneliness in the soul, tests the power of the flesh but when that power is surrendered the work is done, the loneliness transformed and becomes the ultimate choice of relinquishment and there the bearing of fruit begins. Seclusion and solitude become a part of the new cry of the resurrected heart, for there and only there can the soul be truly refreshed.
YOU DO NOT BELONG TO THE WORLD, YOU ARE AN ALIEN LIVING IN A FOREIGN LAND.  THE WORLD INTRUDES ON YOUR PEACE AND YOU FIND LITTLE JOY IN WHAT IT HAS TO OFFER.
 
In the secret place of confining love, He speaks to the waiting heart, the expectant heart, the yielded heart, the pliable heart and yet maybe He will not speak today, nevertheless His eyes are forever looking for hearts such as these.  For it is not only about the listening heart, but the one who places itself at the feet of He who called it.  It may be today at this time He will speak as He teaches this heart to wait in holy expectation.
