“Enter My Chambers!” Intimacy, Jesus style

“Enter My Chambers!”  Intimacy, Jesus style

Jesus said loudly and suddenly, “Get in Here! Get into my embrace!”  Immediately, I saw living light strands stretching from the ceiling down, from heaven to earth.  They were aqua-green, tube-looking things, and somehow I knew they were alive.  I saw someone that looked a little like Todd White inside of a bundle of these living light-tubes off to the left of where I was in the vision.  Off to the right I saw a brown horse.  It lunged at the man that looked like Todd White, teeth bared and menacing, trying to eat the tubes.  I knew the horse stood for the mundane things of life; those things that try to eat up our available time to spend with the Lord, eating up our time for the things of God.

Next I saw an open door in front of me, and a booming voice said, “When are you going to enter in? All you have to do is walk through!” So I did, and on the other side of the door was the most amazing CGI-looking perfection I’ve ever seen!  It was a perfect sky blue sky, sunflowers, green grass, and the door was just hanging open in the midst of the heavenlies.  I floated down through this sky blue perfection onto the green carpet of grass and looked around, amazed at all the utter beauty that surrounded me.  Looking up, the doorway still stood open in the heavens.  It did not close or disappear.

Then I heard, “Enter My Chambers!”  I pushed open the heavy, wooden door, and I walked into this antique, old French-country style bedroom.  I saw an amazing old wooden bed, with a huge headboard.  The bed cover was red velvet, plush and stunningly gorgeous.  I saw myself in the bed, with the covers pulled up almost to my shoulders, even though there was a fire in the fireplace.  I was young, with long brown hair, and a nightgown that was laced up to my chin, covering my entire neck.

Jesus climbed into the bed with me, and he was also similarly dressed, with a frilly 1700’s looking men’s night shirt that was laced all the way up to his neck as well.  He pulled me close, bed covers over our laps.  My head was on his shoulder, and we leaned into each other, cuddling, just snuggling in a non-sexual way, enjoying each other’s company.

Suddenly, He said, “You know you’re going to have to make love with me.”

Somehow, this did not shock me.  He said it in such a way that I knew it was coming; in fact, everything in my life had led up to this very moment in time!  It all led to this divine intersection in this encounter with Jesus.  He was not talking about any kind of sexual activity whatsoever.  He was talking about KNOWING his bride, who had entered into His bridal chambers.  He was calling for His bride to LOVE Him back – honestly, transparently, deeply, fully, totally engrossed in Him…to be naked before Him.

He was telling me, in essence, to make with Him a deeply fulfilling love relationship where one does not currently exist.  Although I love the Lord, he desires a deeper level of intimacy with me, and with His bride.  His desire was to lose all pretense and all forms of religiosity; to lose the masks and charades, to let all our defenses down; to drop our veils, walls and garments that we hide behind, and to LOVE Him as His bride in the bridal chambers.  His wish was for His bride to allow Him to know, and probe, and touch all those hurting, painful places. He was simply asking to allow Him, as our husband, to wipe away our tears and tear down our defenses, then to put the balm of Gilead on our wounds.  He wants to simply love us, the way that He wants to love us.

He wants us to MAKE LOVE with Him, because we are unable to make anything good or of any value ourselves, and because every good and perfect gift comes from Him (James 1:17).  We cannot create love ourselves, on our own, under our own power.  We are simply not capable of it.  Our idea of love does not even begin to compare with the intimacy and the levels of transparency that He desires.

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts,” (Is. 55:9).

I believe that in seasons past His bride has sat in the bridal chamber, even crawled under the covers with Him, but refused to allow Him full access.  She has not bared herself to Him and become truly transparent, because then she (we) would lose control.  His Bride has refused to allow Him full knowledge of our hearts, our intents, and our actions.  We have refused Him full access to our plans; rather, we have concocted our own strategies, all for His glory, of course.

This is a picture of us in the bridal suite.  Yes, we are in His chambers, and some have even gotten to a deeper level of intimacy with Him: under the covers with the King.  Yet our nightgowns are still fully laced up to our chins and our comforters pulled up to our shoulders, even though there is a fire burning in the fireplace!

In order to birth anything, we must first be intimate; thus the need for intimacy, Jesus-style.  

“You know you’re going to have to make love with me.”  This He said, knowing exactly His bride’s heart and every single condition of her circumstances.  This time, he came closer, clothing shed; AGAIN, not in a sexual way, but fully transparent, revealing his intimate intentions with His bride, for the two to become one, with nothing to hide.

“…and the two will become one flesh,” (Gen. 2:24).

He touched His bride’s garment, the one she hides behind, her comfortable mask, and pulled it down, slowly, slowly.  All I could see was it slipping down her arm under that long brown hair.  In the vision, I felt this garment of despair being shed like an old skin!  My heart leapt inside the cavity of my rib cage, while tears rolled down my face, as the lover of my soul melted into His bride, as the two in the bridal chamber in my vision literally became one.  I actually lost sight of Him, and of her (of me), and only saw one mass of love.

“…and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one flesh,” (Mark 10:8).

He wants us – all of us, and nothing less will do.  He wants our entire hearts, all our love with no reserve.  He wants our adoration, our time, our energy.  He wants our day-planners, our money, our emotions, our families…in short, He wants it all.  And He will get it.  He always gets what He wants.

In this time frame in history He wants intimacy with His bride that heretofore has been completely unknown in human terms.  We are going to learn, as His bride, corporately as a family unit, exactly what it means to MAKE LOVE with the King; to know Him, and be known by Him (Gal. 4:9).  This is where we are headed, because this is what He wants.

Isn’t that awesome?

Jesus said, “Give everyone a Rose!”

red-red-redJesus walked up to me in a vision this morning.  At first I thought He was wearing a “Pirates of Penzance” outfit, since He had on a 1700’s style shirt with the frilly collar.  Then I saw Him put on a leather jacket, and I realized he was wearing leather chaps.  He looked very chic, and I thought to myself, “Wow! What a cool outfit!  It could be a new fashion trend.”

He put his arm around me and pointed out in front of us.  I can still smell the leather of His jacket! 

In the direction that He pointed was a dirt road in the middle of nowhere.  It looked like a rutted cart path from a western movie, complete with some tall grass growing in the middle and on both sides.  There was nothing else, just the path and some trees in the distance.  It went on forever.

He said, “You see that long road in front of you?”  I nodded yes.  He asked me, “What do you want to see on it?”  

I looked out at this road in front of us which stretched out eternally.  It was a blank canvas. 

Understanding that our words frame our world (see Proverbs 18), I thought about it seriously for a moment, not really knowing how to answer, or what to say.  I didn’t really know where He was going with this, so I just started spitting out some things. 

I said, “Success.    Gratitude.  Trees!”  I laughed.  Then it hit me, and it came out of my mouth, “LOVE.”

Jesus said, “That’s it!  LOVE.”  Immediately I saw a swelling of flowers, roses, beginning at my feet and reaching up and out in front of me, spilling forward.  They were red roses piled on top of each other, looking very much like a wave of blood, but it was a wave of love. It flowed very quickly, and covered the path in front of us, going on into eternity.

He continued, “For you to receive love, you first have to give it.”  I nodded again, realizing exactly how true this statement was, adhering to His own principles of sowing and reaping (see Galatians 6:7, Luke 6:38).  “For you to see love on the path in front of you, give love.  Lots of it.  Love everyone, unconditionally.  Slather them with love.”  I really liked the way He said, “Slather”!

I thought of the scripture references in 1st Corinthians 13, that say when everything else is gone, love is the only thing that will remain, for all eternity.

Again, I nodded, shaking my head in agreement.  I said, “Please, Jesus!  Show me how to love!  How do I do that?  How do I love like you?” 

He replied, “Give everyone a rose.”

It was then that I realized that the swelling of love that I saw on the road, a tsunami of blood red roses, was an “adding unto”.  It was a multiplication of all the roses of love that He gives out every day through us, His children.  Each one individually is just a small part of His fragrant bouquet of love.  Added together, it multiplies, taking on a life of its own, flowing out in front of us and forward into all eternity.  It “slathers” everyone in our path!

Roses are expensive!  It will cost you to love someone unconditionally.  But our Lord and King has spoken, and He said to give and you will receive (Luke 6:38).  Love is something that ALL of us are able to give, regardless of sex, race, financial status or location.  We all crave and need love; and we all have Love to give!

The hardest rose to give is the first one.  It will get easier and easier, and after a period of time, it will become your nature to do this.  Love someone unconditionally today.  Value him as a person, and just love him. 

I challenge all of us today, including myself, to reach out to someone, and give that person a rose:  The Rose of Sharon.  Their life will never be the same, and neither will yours!

 

Blessings and love,

Edie Bayer
