For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband,
that I may present you as a chaste virgin to the Messiah.” 2 Corinthians 11:2

YHWH, our heavenly Father, is drawing all men unto Himself through the fellowship of His Son. YHWH knows that when we realize the magnitude of the gift He has given us in His Son as the “greatest dowry ever paid” and the “largest inheritance ever received”, that “His goodness will lead to humanity’s repentance (Romans 2:4).

This series shows how one grows from a baby born again Christian into the bride of Yahushua waiting for His soon return and how that growth corresponds with the different segments of the sanctuary.

The Marriage

A Verdict of a Judgment unto Victory that gives access to fellowshipping with YHWH and His Son in person.
The adoption of humanity into the family of YHWH

The most holy place experience

“For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.” 2 Corinthians 5:5

“For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they but ourselves also, which have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.” Romans 8:22-23 underline emphasis the author’s.

“For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.” Philippians 3:21

“Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. And you being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;” Colossians 2:12-14

“But be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.” 2 Timothy 1:8b-10

Yahushua is the greatest Johnny Lingo who has ever lived, for a bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory (Matthew 12:20). He calls us to accept His engagement request by accepting Him as Savior of this world as the Lamb of God. His death was the greatest dowry every paid for a bride – you are so very valuable to Him. The Lamb was slain in the courtyard of the earthly sanctuary; therefore, our justification is a courtyard experience. And, just as Johnny Lingo loved on His wife and encouraged her, so Yahushua asks us to unite our spirits with His as represented by the holy place within the sanctuary. HIS spirit will bring forth the fruit of righteousness within our lives, so that the world will be able to see that we have grown from a baby born again Christian into a virgin bride Christian waiting for the soon return of her Bridegroom. Receiving the Father’s spirit through His Son as an indwelling presence is the largest inheritance a bride has ever received. It is this indwelling presence that brings a judgment unto VICTORY on the Day of Atonement [a most holy place holy day]. This judgment unto victory brings us into the physical presence of the Father with the redemption of our body – an immortal life of fellowship with the Father and the Son. Praise be to YHWH and His Son for Their plan of salvation and redemption!

The Honeymoon

In the Bible, the bridegroom was to stay home with his bride for a full year (Deuteronomy 24:5) after their wedding. He was not required to go to war during that time or to do any type of business. So it is with Yahushua. Our honeymoon will be with Him during the 1000 years in heaven. What a honeymoon that will be—to see the things He and His Father have prepared for us, to grow in our relationship with our spiritual husband, to begin to realize what it means to have become an adopted child of the Eloah OF THE UNIVERSE. Wow! When that time is up, Yahushua will go to work one last and final time. He will eradicate sin forever. Sin and death will be utterly destroyed no longer able to raise its ugly head. When sin and death is destroyed Yahushua returns His kingdom to His Father.

“Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to YHWH, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that YHWH may be all in all.” 1 Corinthians 15:24-28

YHWH Tabernacles with Humanity Forever

The Father again honors His Son. After the millennium planet earth is recreated with new life –“A new heaven and a new earth are made, for the first heaven and earth pass away” (Rev. 22:1). The Father honors His Son by bringing the center of the universe to planet earth where His Son won the victory over sin and death and where He vindicated the law of His Father.

“And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from YHWH out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of YHWH is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people and YHWH himself shall be with them, and be their Elohim. And YHWH 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.” Revelation 21:2-4

Then WE can go to work so-to-speak, but it will not be working for our salvation. It will be a work given for our enjoyment. Just as Adam and Eve were given the Garden of Eden to train and dress and to have dominion over the animals, we will plant vineyards and enjoy the fruit of our labors. We will build houses that no one else will inhabit (Isaiah 65:22).
