Her Heart's Unknowing
“ ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother
and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’.
This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the Church.”
A mediation
on the metaphor
of the most
sacred relationship
in the whole universe!


EPHESIANS 5:31-32
The ultimate intimacy 
– which leads personally into a direct knowledge of the Infinite, of which the coming resurrection gives physical reality to what is already here.
           She is His own . . .   REVELATION 21:9.
Elect in Christ
before all
to be the fullness
of Him who fills all in all.
Ephesians 1:4, 23.
        
         Anticipated before all things – she is the reason for everything!
All Her joys are in His affections; His love – the source of Her delights.
I wondered how He loved Her, and found the secret in Her heart's Unknowing.
     

Jesus said:
“I know My own and
My own know Me,
JUST AS
the Father knows Me
and I know the Father”

John 10:14-15.
  She was His Bride – the long-desired one; the place of His indwelling life.
She staggered – unthinking, at His sure repose;
Yet, held in His calm embrace,
She sought and found the solace of His pure ungendered love.
 
       
  How She loved Him! How She knew Him!
Not by words, or the mind's descriptive lines, but by the deep unknowing of Her heart's happy hold.
She lay where He had placed Her, in His heart's embrace – at home.
No pain, no lie, no gain, could slow or still the call of this:
  His  Name.
     
"...Christ IN you
the hope of Glory
"
Colossians 1:27.
  She bore His love – His life – within Her, Treasured in Her womb of sacred trust.
His growing life within made Her weep with joy,
As the strengthening touch of His nearness drew Her in;
Nearer than the knowing could tell – closer than the Coming could bring!
     
humility is a primary key
to spiritual
understanding
The Spirit of Truth,
He is the Church's
assurance of a future
which comes in Christ.
  ‘Hope’ of all His promise – ‘Treasure’ of the time to come,
She carried truth as His diadem upon Her life.
Anticipating – with such yearning thoughts,
The turning of the times to bring Her name to His.
   
NAME =
nature / character
  Loosing the ties that hindered Him in Her – from being His own Name,
She stooped – and understood the wholeness of His love's unlimiting owning!
Truly, She is His Own  –
 
The revelation of
His character!

forget your people and your father's house, and the King will desire your beauty.
  Since He is your Lord, bow to Him.”
