Which one are you?
Our Best Example of a Real Relationship with JESUS is MARY/ She was always sitting at his feet, just Hanging on his every Word/ You could not lure her away with good Works.
So we have those who JUST WAIT on the LORD, those who are always busy doing good stuff that takes them away from the LORD?
JESUS said that MARY had Chosen the Best Part, and that it would not be taken away from her. HE SAID IT WOULD NOT BE TAKEN AWAY / ( meaning that he would see to it, for her. )
Luk 10:41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:
Luk 10:42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
Once you Chose sitting at Jesus feet, he will not allow anyone to come along and try to Lure you away from that position, as if there was something better to be doing? Martha did not know how to REST in the LORD/ she needed to be doing something, but it was not what she needed? She was depriving herself from sitting with JESUS. This dose not mean that she didn't have a Relationship with JESUS/ it was a different kind of Relationship, one that was never, ever as Close or as Intimate as Mary's.
Mary's Relationship with JESUS is the BRIDE/ She stays with him, and you can not lure her away/ Mary PURSUED JESUS when he was a Corpus in the Grave Yard/ She went to MINISTER to a Dead Man. She was willing to go to his TOMB and Lay Hands on him to give him what she could. She was Pursuing JESUS, when he was suppose to be gone? After the disciples came to the empty Tomb, and saw for themselves, instead of Waiting with her, they all left? The FRUIT of Mary's RELATIONSHIP is Profound/ and this is what needs to be BROUGHT out and Closely EXAMINED, since few will ever know this kind of intimacy/
Because of Mary's relentless Pursuit of JESUS/ This all came to a Climax at the TOMB, where JESUS Stood Still after his own Resurrection, WAITING FOR MARY.
JESUS was WAITING FOR MARY, before he left and Ascended to the FATHER/
JESUS WAITING FOR MARY
JESUS knew she was coming and he wanted to Be there for her.
MARY was United with JESUS as he TARRIED for her between Earth and HEAVEN/ TIME was STANDING STILL while JESUS TARRIED in the Grave Yard, waiting for MARY to arrive/ ( the disciples did not tarry at all, they left ) Those MOMENTS that Mary Shared with JESUS, know one else will ever HAVE. Know one else wanted to WAIT with her. Her WAITING on the LORD was REWARDED. The TIME we spend Tarring for JESUS, will one day Result in him coming to us when we least expect it. So Here are the 2 Examples/ of Relationship/ THE BRIDE, which is Mary/ who never stops PURSUING JESUS/ and is always WAITING/ The Second Hand Bride, which is Martha/ who is always to busy to WAIT, and is always asking him to do something for her. Even Complaining about those who are sitting at his feet.
2 completely Different RELATIONSHIPS/
But Todays SECOND HAND BRIDE is not really a RELATIONSHIP/ It is Far removed from the one Martha had/ She at least came Straight to the Lord with her complaints. Todays SECOND HAND BRIDE go's to total Strangers seeking insight for her own Life? She isn't Busy Serving the Lord with her good works, she is just running after signs and wonders, worshipping worship, and Angels? Mary would never settle for an ANGEL, she wanted the Angel to tell her where JESUS was/
Todays SECOND HAND BRIDE is after Mans WORDS, not GODS WORD/ she buys all kinds of self help books, about growing up SPIRITUALLY, but she never spends time in THE ONLY BOOK that can change her life, by FAITH.
She has NO FAITH/ she is mentally ascending to it/ She has no idea how to ACT on THE WORD. BY FAITH. The SECOND HAND BRIDE is in EMOTIONAL BONDAGE/ Worship is an emotional out let, not an expression that comes from a DEEP RELATIONSHIP/ which Only Real Relationship can Produce.
The SECOND HAND BRIDE asks Total Strangers for a WORD from her LORD? Sad.
The SECOND HAND BRIDE is still trying to Fix her dead past, as if she never got Born Again.? There is no FAITH on Living as a New Creation, so she is constantly digging up her DEAD Old Man, and resurrecting her dead past, since she dose not know how to live a RESURRECTED LIFE NOW.
This LIST GO'S on and ON/
ARE YOU a SECOND HAND BRIDE?
Can you Imagine a BRIDE asking Someone Else what the GROOM wants to say to her?? Would you want your Husband sending you Second Hand messages through someone else, while you are sitting right next to him??
We are SEATED in HEAVENLY PLACES IN CHRIST JESUS/ HE SPEAKS STRAIGHT TO US/ THE HOLY GHOST COMES IN PERSON/ HE DOSE NOT SEND ANGELS/
Angels are for People who do not have the HOLY SPIRIT living inside them.
THE REAL BRIDE is on her HONEYMOON/
The SECOND HAND BRIDE is never alone with the BRIDEGROOM long enough to have one?
(When JESUS returns for his BRIDE who is WAITING, the second hand bride will not even know it happened.)
