Marriage Vow of Oneness:

Marriage unity is perhaps the least understood subject in the marriage
relationship-for if it were understood and applied, there would be no
divorce (putting away).

When we take our marriage vows, we take them to become united (joined
together) into ONE. But is this accomplished just in the physical flesh, or
is it perhaps something greater than that? The whole concept is to become
UNITED (whole). At the creation of man, he was made whole only in the male
part; but in the female counterpart, he was only half complete. Being only a
man, he was UNABLE to increase (yield, bear fruit). The whole idea was to
procreate-to have the ability to produce by a physical reproduction process
(to be fruitful and multiply, by way of a mate).

So the male (seed bearer) impregnator needed a female (egg bearer) womb of
production-the female counterpart was the perfect helpmate for the man. For
without her, his KIND would perish from the earth.

Now lets take it one step further; perhaps there's a deeper union implied in
our marriage relationships, besides just the physical. Indeed, many
marriages are doomed to destruction because they leave out the spiritual
concept of union. They never become united in the spirit-they never become
one minded (they don't agree as ONE).  We know there is a spirit in man (not
the Holy Spirit) that animates and leads us into the production
process-reproducing our own kind in the bond of marital desire (love). The
unity of mind sets the purpose in life to produce and nurture a family,
making us whole in the oneness of body and mind. We are not saying that
every marriage relationship must produce offspring, but what we are saying,
is that you must be in a productive frame of mind. Something must be
produced from your union (accomplishments, fruits of union-in oneness, to
multiply-must profit or become unprofitable).

Our Spiritual relationship with God can now be mirrored in our physical
union of marriage; set forth by a vow of love, not written with ink on paper
or engraved on the stone of physical ordinance, but on the soft inward parts
of a circumcised heart (mind), by the Holy Blood of Redemption. Our Heavenly
Father (Impregnator) SENT the Holy Seed (in the Spirit) of David into our
hearts (circumcised minds of virginity-like Mary's womb); the heart being
the female womb (bed of planting, mind) of production, is prepared in
Humility and lowliness-united to God in Oneness, producing Spiritual fruits
on the Tree of Life (planted in Israel-WORD, restored to Israel in the New
Covenant).
2Cor. 3:3 " [Forasmuch as ye are] manifestly declared to be the epistle of
Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the
living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart."
John 17:21-23 "That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I
in thee, that
they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent
me.
And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one
even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect
in
one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved
them, as
thou hast loved me."
"But he that is joined to the Lord is one Spirit" (I Corinthians. 6:17).

We must remember, as Adam's side was opened taking a rib to produce his
counterpart, a woman; so was the side of Jesus opened to produce a virgin
Church. Not by bone, but in the coming forth of Blood and Water. He being
that Wellspring of Water (Holy Spirit); turned the Water into the redemptive
BLOOD of Sacrifice (Holy WINE). The power of
His glory produced the Man of flesh and blood, and washing us in that Holy
Blood-He set in motion the binding Vow of Godly Love (all the New Covenant
Commandments).

We are now the helpmates of God-producing fruits to HIS Glory, and by
increase, the Glory (Light) of God is made manifest to a darkened world. The
man is becoming completed in the REST (Sabbath, 7th Day) of His Grace
(Christ by Holy Spirit-a gift of Mercy), being nourished in the womb of the
Holy City (Jerusalem above). Yet we are not      entered into that REST IN
FULL (perfection), but wait with patient endurance to Salvation in Eternal
Life in the Kingdom of God-being born of PROMISE in FAITH-
Abraham being our witness. We are no longer separate but ONE, sprung from
the Holy SEED of David planted in Judah. Joseph believing the Word of God by
the angle, took
Mary to wife-and he being a son of David brought forth the Word by the faith
of promise (in a marriage covenant of FAITH). And we having been set FREE
(children of Sarah) in a Heart of Humility circumcised by the Word of God
(Sword-knife of circumcision), we cry out, Abba (Daddy), Father.

God has posted a warning of Remembrance before our eyes-which establishes
the heart of Humility (cut by the hand of Christ in Circumcision- to make
straight, bring low), and marks the hearts of stone (hardness-mind of
carnality-mind of mortality-mind of death). The heart of Humility envelops
the mind of Christ (mind of the Spirit), but the mind of the flesh
(carnality) is as hardened as stone, darkened by the mind of the devil.
Caring only for the things of this world-the carnal mind is steeped in sin,
perishing in it's own deceit. But we by sanctification (set apart for a
purpose-made Holy-cleansed) acknowledge the promise-the Sabbath (7th
day-plus Holy days) being a covenant sign between God and ourselves.
Exodus 31:16 "Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to
observe the sabbath throughout their generations, [for] a perpetual
covenant."
Exodus 31:13 "Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my
sabbaths ye shall keep: for it [is] a sign between me and you throughout
your generations; that [ye] may know that I [am] the LORD that doth sanctify
you.
Exodus 31:17 "It [is] a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever:
for [in] six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he
rested, and was refreshed.

Now some not observing the SIGN, have forgotten their way, and having
returned to their vomit (replacing the Sabbath with other days, and
returning to pagan ritual, in holidays observance) have fallen back into the
pit (a sin-darkness) from which they were drawn. As some may say, " Weren't
the Commandments were done away in Christ?"

Mat. 5:17 "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I
am not come to destroy, but to fulfil."
Col. 2:14  " 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;"
Hebrews 7:11 " If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood,
(for under it the people received the law,) what further need [was there]
that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be
called after the order of Aaron?"
Hebrews 7:12 "For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a
change also of the law."

What was nailed to the cross (symbolically)? Was it the Letter of Law under
the priesthood of Aaron (in the flesh) or the LAW of Godly Love (Royal Law
of Kingdom- encapsulating all law-in the Spirit) under a new priesthood,
under Christ? Which law revealed a curse to me, by knowledge of my sin, wasn
't it the Letter of the Law and not the magnified Royal Law (New Covenant
Law- vow of marriage) under Jesus now written on our softened hearts (hearts
of flesh- of Humility).

The CARNAL MIND of PRIDE, a womb of harlotry (hardening hood-shroud over our
minds-veil) is CUT off in circumcision by the Word (Jesus) of God.
Deut.30:6 "And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart
of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy
soul, that thou mayest live."
2Cor. 3:3 " [Forasmuch as ye are] manifestly declared to be the epistle of
Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the
living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart."
Eze. 36:26 "A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put
within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I
will give you an heart of flesh."
Job 41:24 "His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the
nether [millstone]." The heart of Leviathan (Satan)
Rev. 18:21 "And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and
cast [it] into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city
Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all." The heart of
Satan (the carnal mind-woman, womb of harlotry) will be cast into sea-"come
out of her my people."
Zec. 7:12 "Yea, they made their hearts [as] an adamant stone, lest they
should hear the law, and the words which the LORD of hosts hath sent in his
spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of
hosts."

Commandment keeping a NECESSITY:
Hebrews 8:8 "For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come,
saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and
with the house of Judah:"
I Cor. 7:19 "Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the
keeping of the commandments of God." He is a Jew who is one inwardly, in the
Spirit.
I John 2:4 "He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is
a liar, and the truth is not in him."
I John 3:24 "And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in
him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath
given us."
I John 5:3 "For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and
his commandments are not grievous."
Rev. 12:17 "And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war
with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have
the testimony of Jesus Christ."
Rev. 14:12 "Here is the patience of the saints: here [are] they that keep
the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus."
Rom. 2:29 "But he [is] a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision [is
that] of the heart, in the spirit, [and] not in the letter; whose praise
[is] not of men, but of God."

There was a man John, who came to pay witness of His coming, who through the
burial of the old; gave witness of the LIFE to come by restoration. In a
picture of death (burial-baptism) the people agreed that the old man of sin
must die, to give way for the new. And in so doing, they HUMBLED themselves
before God in baptism, giving witness that they were sinners.  HUMILITY
began her perfect work, by making the way straight (low), and preparing a
people for the workings of God. John came to
PLANT (burial of old man), so Christ could RAISE them in Glory-to Life
Eternal.

Called to REMEMBRANCE by the Covenant made to our Fathers at Horeb:
Deut. 5:2 "The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb." (Mt. of God).
Deut. 30:6 "And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart
of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy
soul, that thou mayest live."
Deut. 30:3 "That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have
compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations,
whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee.
Deut. 30:20 "That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, [and] that thou mayest
obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he [is] thy life,
and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the
LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give
them.

The hearts of the fathers will be turned to their children in the refreshing
of the New (Covenant turned by Christ to Spiritual intent) as our hearts
will be turned to our fathers in Remembrance of the old (no mirror, physical
type-then no reflection in the Spirit). The Word of God is the mirror of
Truth. We must look into the past to see (reflection of Christ) the face of
God in ourselves. We are founded (in Faith) on the Godly promise of Eternal
Life in His Kingdom of Glory (Light)-being HEIRS of Salvation (from the
darkness of death) established on Godly promise, made firm in FAITH, and
brought forth in HIS LOVE. Raised in the Light, we become part of the LIGHT
beholding the Glory of GOD.

Yes, the hearts of the fathers will be turned to those of CHILDREN in
HUMILITY, and the hearts of the children (seed) will be turned to the
fathers in Remembrance of the Covenant of God and the Circumcision of Faith,
in Christ Jesus.
The Word of God was Restored; and in this restoration the Holy Covenant of
Grace made to the fathers was REFRESHED (renewed) in their children of Grace
(New Covenant Israel-Jews by the Circumcision of the Heart). Jesus restored
the Covenant Word in the children of circumcision. If this Restoration did
not take place in Jesus, the entire world of mankind would DIE IN THEIR SIN,
and the curse of death would destroy us forever, but thanks be for the
Restoration, for now we shall LIVE in JESUS. Our fathers will be refreshed
in their CHILDREN, by the NEW, as we our refreshed by the Restoration of the
OLD.

The Words of Jesus, are God's Words-Jesus spoke as the Father gave Him
command, and Jesus is the only WAY to God. To FIND GOD one must EAT the
BREAD of LIFE,
and Jesus our beloved, is the DOOR to Salvation. Now as we eat the Passover
Bread of Humility, we do it in REMEMBRANCE of the WORD of GOD and COVENANT
of GRACE. We once again become the children of LIBERTY (Sarah the free
women) in the Word of HIS Glory-Jesus. We will be washed in the BLOOD
(LIFE-to ratify, place in action) of the NEW Covenant, shed for all. The
vessel was broken, so that the WINE (Light-Blood) of refreshing could be
poured out to cover the darkness of death forever in the LIGHT of His Glory.
The New Covenant is a Covenant of Spirit, of Life, and of Glory in Jesus
Christ; a Covenant by which all the sins of mankind are washed away in the
mercy of GOD'S heavenly Light.

The Old Covenant fathers will be REFRESHED in the New Covenant children, who
make up the virgin church-the bride of Christ. The fathers shall be reborn
from their children of PROMISE (the children of FAITH). This is the New
Jerusalem that shall give us BIRTH from her womb of Righteousness; into the
Eternal Family of GOD-this is the heavenly Jerusalem. Note: Was Abraham of
the New Covenant? Absolutely, for he lived by FAITH in the promise of the
Holy Seed-he lived in tents waiting for a New Country and a New City who's
Builder and Maker was God. Abraham carried within his loins the Holy Seed of
Promise (the New Covenant Messenger-Jesus Christ). And it is in this
Testimony, that GOOD NEWS has been voiced unto the world; that Eternal Life
is coming by promise in the KINGDOM of GOD.

Everything in the Old Covenant regarding Law (Ten Commandments) and ritual
ordinance was reflected by way of enlargement (magnification) in the NEW
Covenant (marriage vow): The Ten Commandments were changed to the original
spiritual intent-animal sacrifice was changed to the Holy Blood and Body of
Christ-the Temple was changed to our bodies in Christ-the High Priest was
changed to Jesus the Christ-the priesthood was changed in ourselves offering
up the sacrifices of prayer-the Blood to ratify and the Water (Holy spirit
of God) to wash. And finally the Bread of thanksgiving-the Body of Jesus for
us to eat and His Blood (His Life- wine) for us to drink-which is the very
WORD of God, our Holy Prince, feeding the inward man.

Mal. 2:15 "And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit.
And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to
your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth."
To produce Holy Children.

Dearest brothers and sisters in Jesus, this short letter is written for you.
We are now scattered upon the face of the earth-yet we can take heart that
are registry (in the Book of Life) is sure in heaven.
Hebrews 12:22 "But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the
living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of
 angels,"
Hebrews 12:23 "to the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which
are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of
just men made perfect,"
Hebrews 12:24 "And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the
blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than [that of] Abel."

We are no longer two (separate), but ONE- in a NEW MARRIAGE VOW of LOVE!
I John 4:16 "And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us.
God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him."
Rom. 8:39 "Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to
separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
I John 4:10 "Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us,
and sent his Son [to be] the propitiation for our sins."
I Cor. 2:9 "But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither
have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for
them that love him."
Mat. 19:6 "Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore
God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.:"
Eph. 2:15 "Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, [even] the law of
commandments [contained] in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one
new man, [so] making peace; "

Jesus abolished the handwriting of fleshly ordinances (letter of the law,
law of Aaronic priesthood), establishing the law of Spiritual intent in His
own body. Now what once revealed a curse to me (sin of death) has become the
binding vow of love in a marriage contract (Covenant) of fulfillment. Thus
placing in effect the full intent of Godly Love
in us. We are no longer two, but One in the Spirit of His Grace. This vow of
LOVE is
now written upon our hearts by the finger of God, magnified (enlarged) in
Christ-He keeping all the Commandments in us by FAITH-bearing FRUIT to the
Glory on High.
And Jesus being flesh was planted in death, but Raised by the Spirit in the
fulfillment of His promise-and knowing God cannot lie, we take hold of Godly
endurance knowing
we have become ONE in Them. Titus 1:2 "In hope of eternal life, which God,
that cannot lie, promised before the world began;"

"Shema Yisroel Adonoi Elohenu Echod- Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the
Lord is one!" (Deut. 6:4).
Zec. 14:9 "And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall
there be one LORD, and his name one.
