Kissing, Lips, and Attesting Glory
CONT., page 3
We need to address something here, but the only way we can do so is to first address this matter of the prophetic and intercessoral significance of kissing. What do two separate sets of lips—one male and one female—uniting together testify? The answer is now simple.
The woman’s covered lips that bring forth offspring are the split covenant parts that the male conjugally passes between. In type, they are the two-part Bride that is separated by the body of Christ, the fulfillment of the covenant that was testified in Genesis 15. Therefore, facial lips likewise testify to the two-part Bride. The covenant that Yahweh will also fulfill is that the Word of God passes between the split covenant parts of the male Bride-member’s covered lips. This is the covenant we desperately need taking place now!
Knowing then that the lips represent the Bride, what does kissing prophetically and intercessorally testify to? The answer: It is the uniting of the two Bride works, the Moses and the Elijah on the mount of transfiguration, the two becoming one. It is the first resurrection when the dead in Christ, the first Remnant, arise, and we who are alive, the second Remnant, meet them in the air (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). And, the pleasure and affection that is experienced in the natural act of kissing, especially having been separated for an extended period of time, is only a foretaste of the immense pleasure and affection that will take place in heaven at the uniting of the two Remnant.
Having seen this, we are now going to address something that is wonderfully profound and revealing. But, if you are a concrete thinker, you are going to have a hard time making the turn that we now have to make. As we discuss this, as well as the next section, keep in mind that natural types are testimonies that assist us in understanding heavenly things. But, the things that are concrete here on earth, are not so concrete in heaven. Oh, the law is still there, but the limitations that are here on earth do not exist. For example, we know that the two-part Bride speaks of two wives. Why? Because governmentally, that is their relationship with Yahshua and the body of Christ in the kingdom of heaven. But, we also say that they are an Elijah, and he was male. Even so, both are true. Again, these earthly types enable us to understand the purpose and workings in the heavenly. The same is true with what is about to be shared—natural types must be used in order to understand what is governmentally taking place.
When we say that the two Bride works are caught up to heaven to become one, the law of the union of a man and a woman is automatically mandated. In order for two to become one, governmentally one must always be a male, and the other must always be a female (despite the false desires of homosexuals).
Therefore, on the one hand we can say these two Remnant works are the Leah and the Rachel. Again, these are terms or types that describe their governmental place and function in relation to Yahshua and the body of Christ. But, when we say that the two ascend and become one, of necessity we are speaking of a male and female relationship, and this is now the governmental law that must come into play.
We see that in order for the first Remnant and second Remnant to become one, then one has to be female and one has to be male. So, which is which? Clearly, and this affirms all we have been learning here, the first Remnant is the female and the second Remnant is the male. Why? First, the female is the weaker vessel (1 Peter 3:7) that is easily deceived (1 Timothy 2:14). Such was the case with the first Remnant, which is confirmed in their testimony as a Leah—she had weak eyes. Yahshua was gone only eight days and already the abomination of desolation took place (The Great Tribulation).
Likewise, the female does not have the right to teach. Therefore, the first Remnant lasted only a year and a half, and the right to teach quickly went to the masculine body of Christ, with Paul rightly validating that women could not teach. The fact is that by virtue of the first Remnant’s relationship with the second Remnant that was to come, governmentally they were female and did not have the covered mouth. Hair speaks of glory, so the first Remnant did not and could not have the glorious truth that the second Remnant has, nor could they bring forth Yahshua as the Elijah work. In this latter testimony, they were the little sister whose doorway was barricaded in Song of Solomon 8:8-9.
This also explains why the second Remnant can now teach—legally, we are masculine. Thus, we can do what the first Remnant could not do. As the Elijah, we birth the Word of God to this earth. But again, consistent with Yahweh’s ways and laws, teaching will be exclusively by men.
This profoundly confirming truth we see here regarding the two Remnant, is the identical law and testimony whereby women cannot teach or exercise the authority of the man. Women cannot bring forth the Word of God, any more than the first Remnant could bring forth the Word of God. It is the masculine second Remnant that can do so, and it is men who have the authority to teach and to rule. Women need to get back into their places. They have followed in the ways of Eve, have utterly failed, and as in the Garden have brought about destruction and death in their rebellion.
Furthermore, it is extremely important and highly relevant to note that this is the identical female/male pattern that Yahshua follows in coming through Mary, and then in the Millennial reign. It is remarkably significant that, like the two-part Remnant, His coming through Mary fully testified of being “female” in nature, and His coming in the Millennial reign is clearly “male” in nature. We will look more carefully at these; but ladies, if you do not think that Yahshua understands your place as a woman, or if you want to rebel in your place that Yahweh has ordered for you, remember that Yahshua has already walked out the same, and that faithfully. You should therefore do likewise, not loving your life, but choosing to serve, rather than to be served, humbling yourself for the sake of others.
When Yahshua came to this earth through Mary, He too came in the position as the weaker vessel—the woman. We are told that, “although He existed in the form of God, [He] did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross” (Philippians 2:6-8). This clearly is the call to the woman, who is to find her identity not only in taking the name of her head, her husband, but finding her fulfillment in serving and obeying him as well.
In like testimony to the female, Yahshua could not govern, even telling one man who wanted Him to judge in a simple family matter, “Man, who appointed Me a judge or arbitrator over you?” (Luke 12:13-14). Equally, though He taught, His message was remarkably hidden, with much of it in parables. There was so much more He could have said, but in His female role did not do so.
In clear contrast, when Yahshua comes again it will be His male work. This time, He will now rule the nations with a rod of iron, and the words from His mouth will no longer be concealed in parables, but as a sharp two-edged sword coming out of His mouth (Revelation 1:16). And while He would not so much as determine a simple family dispute, when He comes in His male work He will repay every man according to his deeds (Matthew 16:27), judge the nations, and rule as King of kings.
So ladies, Yahshua was faithful to humble Himself and walk in the place of the female, before He would ever walk in the place of the male. How much then should you equally be faithful in your role, not following in the usurping and rebellious ways of the Vashtis of today, but following the example of your Savior who humbled Himself?
In 1 Peter 3:1-2 we read:
In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives, as they observe your chaste and respectful behavior.
So what does it mean here when we read that “In the same way” wives, the female creation, are to be submissive to their husbands? What we find is that this “In the same way” comparison and example is precisely the position Yahshua came to fulfill in His feminine role, as He clearly stated, “the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:28). Here we find the same instruction for women, who indeed stand in the place of Yahshua when He came through Mary. The “In the same way” instruction Peter referred to here was a servant’s submission to his master, even when he is treated wrongfully:
Servants, be submissive to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and gentle, but also to those who are unreasonable. For this finds favor, if for the sake of conscience toward God a person bears up under sorrows when suffering unjustly (1 Peter 2:18-19).
This is what Peter was pointing to when he said, “In the same way, you wives . . . .” This is the way of Yahweh—the quality Yahshua willingly came and walked out, finding favor with God, and the quality women are likewise called to practice. Thus, we equally read in 1 Peter 3:5-6, where Peter then adds:
For in this way [of a “gentle and quiet spirit”], in former times the holy women also, who hoped in God, used to adorn themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord. And you have become her children if you do what is right without being frightened by any fear.
As Yahshua fully demonstrated, this is to be the way of the feminine. Whether it be Yahshua in His coming through Mary, or a woman in her relation to her husband, or the first Remnant in relation to the second Remnant, or the created in relation to the Creator, or anyone under the authority of another, the female is to embrace their place and serve faithfully in it. And whether we are male or female, we will all find ourselves to be occupying that female, created place, even as did the Son of God. May we each be found faithful.
Yahshua likewise instructs us, “Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted” (Matthew 23:12). Sadly, the former is the state of women today. They have exalted themselves to a place that is not theirs—to the place of the man, to authority. But this cannot be the way of the Bride, who are enjoying the marriage supper of the Lamb as we prepare for our marriage. Yahshua clearly instructed us:
“When you are invited by someone to a wedding feast, do not take the place of honor, for someone more distinguished than you may have been invited by him, and he who invited you both will come and say to you, ‘Give your place to this man,’ and then in disgrace you proceed to occupy the last place. But when you are invited, go and recline at the last place, so that when the one who has invited you comes, he may say to you, ‘Friend, move up higher’; then you will have honor in the sight of all who are at the table with you. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted” (Luke 14:8-11).
Is the motive of this writer to shackle and oppress women? I ask you the question—would you ask the same of me if I wrote so as to affirm the coming of Yahshua through Mary and the life of sacrifice and service He came and lived? No. None the less is my hope for and purpose in addressing women today—that they would serve with the same devotion and purpose as did He, and with all hope receive the like reward. May faithful women who follow in the way of Yahshua someday hear these words—“This is my beloved daughter in whom I am well pleased.” May heaven ever moreso be inhabited by obedient daughters of Sarah, and all Vashtis removed.
And one other important word here before we continue. Throughout this writing the failed state of women is addressed in the general term “women.” Are there exceptions to this failure in the lives of women? Gratefully, absolutely. But, with the utterly corrupt state of society and the church, those exceptions are very few.
Undoubtedly, the state of womanhood today is the lowest in the history of mankind. Is that an exaggeration? Not in the least. When else have women murdered their babies at the rate of fifty million each year worldwide? When else have women ever stood in the place of governance equal to the man as they do today? When else have women so infiltrated the place and jobs of men as they have today? When else has the rate of divorce and live-in relationships been so high as they are today? When else have women taken on the appearance of the man both in dress and in cutting their hair as they do today? When else have women abandoned motherhood so wholesale, refusing to bring forth offspring for the sake of pleasure and convenience as they do today, ignoring the instruction that women will be saved through the bearing of children. So, if you are offended when I say “women” when addressing the failures of the females, you need to reassess the totally failed state of women today. Their failure is epidemic!
Furthermore, there is another purpose in concentrating on the absolute failure of women today. Men need to take their place as men, which they have given up. Have you ever seen a man who buckles and hunkers down under the relentless railings of a threatening dominant wife? She rules the home. She sets the schedule, she plans the direction of events, she controls what is said, she controls how the money is spent, she has everyone cowering and conforming to her will or otherwise receiving her wrath. This is the way America, and the world, is today. It is feminized by the same rebellious controlling spirit of the woman. This feminine spirit stands in our places as men; it controls what we say; it controls the government, making it weak and based on emotions. It controls the way our nation foolishly and emotionally spends its money; it controls job placement and education; it controls the courts to the ruin of the family and the nation. America today has all the attributes of a wife-dominated home.
How did we get here as a nation? By the same way the Garden of Eden was cursed—by the man listening to the woman. The first words of Yahweh to Adam when He corrected him was, “Because you have listened to the voice of your woman” (Genesis 3:17). Our nation is feminized because men buckled to the rebellion of women, going back to Elizabeth Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. Men failed and gave this nation over to the weak and easily deceived woman. Men were and are today duped, hen-pecked, and like the home stated above, have abdicated to the Eveonian lie of feminism.
Therefore, while this writing is an appeal to women to see their GRAVE AND ENTIRELY DESTRUCTIVE error, it is likewise instruction to men to see their own failure and the need to restore their place as principled men. Furthermore, it is an appeal to this nation and the world to root out and correct this tragic error of feminism and restore masculinity.
So again ladies, when “women” are addressed here, you have a better understanding of the depth and breadth of the problem. Though there may be a small, small exception, and there are indeed variances in a woman’s departure from godly femininity, women have compromised to the extent that it is appropriate to address women here in general. The small, small exceptions do not nearly outweigh the encompassing mammoth problems.
Gratefully, there are women whose hearts are fertile and gladly welcome the heralding of truth, stirring within them that which they have known to be true or have even cherished. These are the like hearts where a fire is easily kindled, giving hope to all mankind. Women in past times were the acknowledged keepers of virtue and a safe and productive home. May that fire burn within women once again—the virtuous woman of Proverbs 31.
