We know Them who said “let Us make man in Our image and Our likeness”. Then They, the plurality of God, proceeded to make man and split him in half male and female. They wanted us to know Them that way, male and female, so They created Adam and Eve. Because of this we can know some things about the Godhead, in the images of male and female.
In the book of John, Christ said that He would not leave us orphans, meaning parent-less. That He would send “another helper”. Like Adam had a helper, Christ has a helper. His counterpart and other parent is female. She is “bone of His bone and flesh of His flesh, in composition and design. Similar to Christ of pre-matter existence, before creation of spirit and truth as being “the same yesterday, today and forever” . They are the original male and female that Adam and Eve depicted in the garden.
The originals were seen working together for creation as described in these scriptures. “In the beginning was the word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” “and “Then God said, let there be light. And the spirit of God brooded over the face of the deep.” She now broods over the face of the deep and darkened soul awaiting their arrival to these eternal, unchangeable realities. These precede and supersedes all of the creation that is common to the senses of carnal man .
When God spoke, the pre-spoken Word came forth from the proverbial mouth of God, coupled along with His breath called the Holy Spirit. This was the first split. Like when we speak word and breath comes out also.
We are like God in this way. Which is why we “shall be judged by every word we utter”. Our words are more of who we are than the clothes we put on and our titles we work for. Our words reflect something of our invisible part we call the heart.
The Greek word for spirit and breath is “pneuma”. It is the same word. This is what qualifies the masculine Word married with the feminen Spirit to be called “the only begotten of the Father” being the correct image of the Father, being male and female and able to reproduce.
In the beginning God split His image called Adam in two by removing a rib called eve. For This reason the two shall become one to mend that tear. Adam was half the man of Christ. Christ was the one to mend that tear by combining the halves of male and female to qualify as the full, mended image of God.
That is why He is the only begotten and true representation of God. Both halves are restored.
The Spirit and the Word are the only ones that came from God, being made up of His invisible elements of spirit and truth. They being joined together are equally God. They are the ones that said “let us make man in our image, male and female. They together are both co-creators that pre-exist all created things.
It was not so much the Adom or the man Adam that was split to implement creation, but the word and spirit. And it is as they are married, and united together in us, that starts our new association, being born again of this the New creation. Which is not really new in the sense of having never been before. But new, in that it never gets old. This too is a contrast for our learning, like light and dark.
It is the created things that present the contrasts that started with the distinction of light and dark that were given to sharpen our understanding. But “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all”. And “we walk in the light as He is in the light” and we see Them as They are. This is how we become like them now and not at some mysterious 2nd coming. (1 John 3) You transfigure and transform by staring at This. 18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transfigured into the self same image from the glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord” in the here and now.
It is those of us being born by the Word and by the Spirit of God that are “a kind of first-fruits of his creation” now, being born of Them by “the incorruptible word of God that goes on forever”. The Word carries with it Gods genetic, predisposition that we put on and become.
Are we not taught to “put on Christ”? Because “in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead body (Which includes Her), and you are complete in Him” if you have received Them, male and female, in their natural pre-carnate reality.
If you have not received God in his likeness male and female. Then you have not received His fullness, but only half. There are still some things you don’t understand. Do not despair though. She is still brooding.
We then are his children and the elect of God being remade in His image by adopting His Word and His Spirit. We are perfected and completed in this way “We are a new creation in Christ”. (2nd Corinthians 5:17)
Christ said “He who keeps My word and My words abide in you, then Me and the Father will come to you and make our home in you” and so They do.
We then are the Elect having both halves reunited in ourselves, having received His word and His Spirit. Both parents are with us.
This is how we participated in the Marriage Feast of the Lamb and His Bride. We believe the witness of the last prophet, John the Baptist, and agree that “the Holy Spirit descended like a dove from Heaven”, to unite with Christ and to abide with Him forever. Only forever beings can do this.
We share John’s testimony that said “29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. 30 they who come from above are above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all. 32 And what He has seen and heard, that He testifies; and no one receives His testimony. (Because it is Heavenly and not carnal) 33 He who has received His testimony has certified that God is true.” (John 3.29+)
So let us continue to adopt the truth about our Parents. Even as Paul said that “Heavenly Jerusalem is the Mother of us all”. We are “the all”.
If you are waiting for a new Jerusalem to appear on planet earth, your mother, then you are not born from above.
It is us that adopt the Holy Word and the Holy Spirit that are now called saints. A word that means “holy ones”. Even as the Lord commanded “be ye holy as I am holy. There is no other way than to adopt Them, so They adopt us into the family of God. That is why we can say like Paul “now we are citezines, members and saints of the household of God.” The wait is over.
It is as we adopt them that we are bone of their bone and flesh of their flesh, in composition and design similar to them being spirit and truth of sound doctrine and perfect understanding.
The Kingdom of God is at hand in this way. The Bride has made Herself ready as the Bride come down from God. The King is male, the Kingdom is female. Christ’s Kingdom is not of this age
