Kissing, Lips, and Attesting Glory
CONT., page 2
For several years, I asked the question as to the prophetic and governmental meaning of kissing. There is no way an act of such significance and emotional attachment could not hold profound governmental and prophetic meaning. Why is it that we place lips together? And why is it so emotionally fulfilling and arousing? Why is it so intimate, yet in moderation publicly acceptable? Why is it such a profound greeting after a time of being apart? By the very design of God, it has to be tied to something immensely spiritual and most certainly prophetic. This was quite obvious; but the meaning eluded me, until just recently.
I always tried to consider the significance of kissing relative to the aspect of being face to face—as Yahweh God talked with Moses in such manner (Exodus 33:11). But, that never unlocked the meaning. It was not until recently when I was meditating on the covenant pattern that its meaning was made clear. The answer was not in face-to-face, but in the prophetic identity of lips.
Let me propound for you a riddle, a question. What is it in which a woman has three thereof, and a man has two? The answer is: a woman has three pairs of lips, and a man has two. Can you identify them in both cases? The answer to this is remarkably revealing, as you will see.
First, we will note that two of the paired lips are hidden, and one is public. The public lips of both the man and the woman are, of course, the lips that encompass our mouth. These are obviously common to both male and female, with one very important distinction—the lips of the man are covered with glory, with hair. This is not so with the woman. As you will see, this is profoundly meaningful and consequential.
The second pair of lips that both the man and the woman share in common are their posterior lips that equally encompass an opening—the large lips that encompass the anus. These too are clearly lips, and unlike the mouth are to be hidden, concealed, even covered. These, like the woman’s mouth, in both sexes are equally not covered with hair—no glory.
By now you undoubtedly know what the pair of lips are on the woman that causes her to have three, whereas the man has but two. These are the lips of the two covenant parts whereby consummation of marriage is effected when the woman encompasses the man. In fact, Yahweh has even provided two pairs of lips to prophesy here—the labia major on the exterior, and the labia minor on the interior. Yahweh has thus provided the testimony of a two-part covering.
You will also note that, like the man’s mouth and jaw, this pair of lips is equally covered with hair. Additionally, it is from these two lips that not only the covenant of marriage is effected, but from them comes forth the fruit of that covenant—offspring. Furthermore, quite significantly, this is the pair of lips that first brought forth the male child, the Son of God.
We see then that these lips, and their holy of holies womb, are indeed the means whereby the male child can come forth. This act is not physically possible for a male, as he has only two pairs of lips, lacking this third. In order for a man to physically bring forth offspring requires a miracle, which is what Yahweh had to do for three men. Let us briefly examine this.
Adam was the first man to experience this act of procreation. It was not good for him to be alone (Genesis 2:18), so Yahweh put him to sleep, put a slit in his side, took out a rib (he had no holy-of-holies womb), and made a bride—Eve. You will notice here as well that this slit that was added to Adam’s side had no lips and lacked glory, lacked hair.
Some four thousand years later, Mary was overshadowed by the Holy Spirit and brought forth the Son of God. This was the second man who had to bring forth an offspring, once again a female. It was not good for Yahshua to be alone, so in like manner He too was put to sleep, a slit was placed in His side as well, there was definitely an absence of glory, and out came water and blood—the very things that come from the woman’s like slit. Then once again Yahweh formed a bride—the first Remnant Bride that existed for a year and a half.
To take this sequence further and get to our third male, at the cross the veil, hymen, of the temple was rent; blood was shed; and at Pentecost the Bride, like Mary, was overshadowed by the Holy Spirit with the former rain. They received the shemen (Hebrew for oil) in the holy of holies, the Bride; and she became pregnant and birthed a male child—the body of Christ.
But this is only part of this entire sequence, for the purpose in all of this is to bring forth the male child who will rule with a rod of iron—Yahshua. We have already seen that the only way to get offspring from a male is to put him to sleep and open his side. If this is done, as we have seen, a Bride can thereby be formed. This is precisely where we are right now.
At this time the body of Christ is sleeping, its side is pierced (“Gary” means “sharp spear”), and from its side comes the second Bride. Consummating all of this to its required fulfillment, this is the Bride that is equally overshadowed by the Holy Spirit with the latter rain, impregnated with the shemen, and will bring forth the male Child—Yahshua!
Thus we see that Mary brought forth Yahshua, who brought forth the first Bride, who brought forth the body of Christ, who brings forth the second Bride, who brings forth Yahshua in glory.
Mary –> Yahshua –> Bride –> body of Christ –> second Bride –> Yahshua
Returning to the subject at hand, we now see these three pairs of lips—all three in women, and two in men. Two pairs have glory, hair, covering them—the man’s mouth and the woman’s parts that bring forth offspring. Two pairs do not—the woman’s mouth and the posterior mouth of both men and women. Let us now consider these highly determining and revealing differences.
First, we are clearly told in the Scriptures that women are not to teach or exercise the authority of a man.
As in all the churches of the saints, the women are to keep silent in the churches; for they are not permitted to speak, but are to subject themselves, just as the Law also says. If they desire to learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is improper for a woman to speak in church (1 Corinthians 14:33-35).
A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise the authority of a man, but to remain quiet. For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve. And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression (1 Timothy 2:11-14).
Of course the sin of the woman, strongly evidenced in the Curse of 1920 that came upon America and the world, is to take the place of the man. This iniquity of the woman originated in the Garden when she was cursed: “Yet your desire will be for [the place of] your husband, and he will rule over you” (Genesis 3:16). But even though this sin is so egregiously and destructively prevalent today, Yahweh WILL keep His law concerning the sole responsibility of the man to rule and to teach. His work will indeed wonderfully evidence this truth.
What then is all of this speaking to us? We will get straight to the point. That which is stated here you will understand better as this writing unfolds.
The man’s mouth that is covered by hair, is prophetically and governmentally equal to the woman’s birth area that is likewise covered by hair. Why? Because it is the man who has been given the authority to deliver the Word of God, and that is precisely what the covered area of the woman speaks to. The woman attests through her covered birth area that it is the mouth of the covered male that will bring forth the Son of God. This is why men alone have the authority to teach. When Yahshua came the first time (which is actually the second—The Waltz of Life, page 3), He came in weakness through the woman, whose birth area is covered with hair/glory. But when He comes to reign, He comes through the strength of the man, whose mouth and jaw are equally covered with hair/glory. While the Bride is governmentally a female work in one sense—a Mary—the law of Yahweh God requires that men must proclaim and effect that work—an Elijah.
In 1 Timothy 2:15 we read, “But women will be saved through the bearing of children, if they continue in faith and love and sanctity with self-restraint.” In like regard, men will “birth” the Word of God, Yahshua, and therein we, even all mankind, will be saved.
What happens when the woman, whom Yahweh has attested cannot bring forth the word of God, and is instructed likewise, attempts to do so? This too is testified by Yahweh. Her uncovered mouth is the same as the uncovered posterior mouth of both sexes. When she seeks to teach the word of God, she speaks from a posterior mouth. There is no glory. Thus, instead of giving birth to the Word of God, she brings forth dung and wind. It is as written in Isaiah 26:17-18:
As the pregnant woman approaches the time to give birth, she writhes and cries out in her labor pains, thus were we before You, O Yahweh. We were pregnant, we writhed in labor, we gave birth, as it seems, only to wind. We could not accomplish deliverance for the earth, nor were inhabitants of the world born.
This is the same message that is given when men teach or preach with the appearance of the woman by shaving their God-given and highly attesting covering of the beard. They equally evidence that they too speak from their posterior mouth and likewise deliver dung and wind. Again, there is no glory. They evidence that neither can they bring forth the Word of God.
Does this mean all bearded men are able to speak the word of God? Of course not. Quite obviously, a beard is no guarantee that one is speaking truth. Any man can speak from a posterior mouth if he teaches flesh-processed error/dung. But a man who speaks truth should evidence so by a covered mouth that Yahweh attestingly placed upon him. Does the woman’s uncovered mouth mean that a woman cannot speak truth? Of course not. Obviously, some women speak far more truth than most bearded men. But what it does mean is that the woman does not have the authority to stand in the place of the man and teach or exercise his authority, but that the bearded man brings forth the Word of God.
In Revelation 14:1-5, we read an account that describes specifically the second Remnant. This is the second company of 144,000, the first found in Revelation 7, the first Remnant. There are those who will not like the testimony Yahweh provides here, but it cannot be ignored or dismissed, confirming everything we have been noting and all that is yet to be addressed. Considering the present prevalent feminization of the church and the nations, this is a very timely and fitting distinction assigned here to the second Remnant. It is an equally fitting description since the second Remnant brings forth Yahshua through the covered mouth of the man. Thus we read in verses 4-5: “These are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they have kept themselves chaste. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These have been purchased from among men as first fruits to God and to the Lamb. And no lie was found in their mouth; they are blameless.” May Yahweh fulfill His word in the second Remnant Elijah that we not be defiled by the weak and easily deceived woman, that our mouth would speak truth.
A woman today can no more bring forth the Word of God, than a man can bring forth a baby. They do not have the required mouth for it, attested by their lack of a beard. Men, women today may dress like us, they may wear our pants, they may cut their hair short like ours, they may work in our jobs, they may stand in our places of authority, they may stand in our pulpits, they may vote, and they may demand equality with us; BUT, THEY WILL NEVER WEAR OUR BEARD! (Genetic flukes notwithstanding.) Say all they wish, scream all they want, cry, object, and demand equality; but heaven has not changed and will never affirm them or their actions. In the end they will utterly fail in their usurping rebellion. They are not bearded!
How is it then that the Mary, the Bride that births Yahshua, is Elijah? Again, to what does the woman attest? She attests to the Word of God that is brought forth by the covered mouth of the man. The man alone has the ability to bring forth the Word of God. Mary may have brought forth the natural man Yahshua, but government dictates that men, within the government of the second Remnant Bride, bring forth the Word of God in His strength and glory.
