Christ The Reality Of The Social World


CHRIST IS THE REALITY OF GENDER: The meaning, essence and purpose of gender is Christ. Christ is the reason why God created gender. "Adam was a type (prefigure) of the One Who was to come [Christ]" (Rom 5:14). Christ Jesus is the real man, all other men are just a type, picture and representation of Christ. In Genesis God created man without a woman; this is a symbol and representation of Christ when He was a lone bachelor without a bride. God later put Adam to a deep sleep and created Eve with a bone removed from Adam's side. So also in the new testament God put Jesus into a deep sleep on the cross and out of Jesus's side God removed blood and water (John 19:34-35).
The blood is for redemption as the Church is born out of redemption and the water is for growth as the Church grow through the word of God. "that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish." (Eph 5:26-27). God is using Christ blood and water to build and create a glorious bride for Christ. The bride is the body of Christ.
Head is not different from the body i.e your head is you and your body is also you. So also Christ is the head and Christ is the body. Therefore Christ is the bride and the bride is the reality of woman. All other women is a type, shadow and prepresentation of the Church, the Church is the only real woman. The Church is Christ, Christ is the reality of man and the reality of woman. Therefore Christ is the reality of gender. Gender is not real, the real gender is Christ.
CHRIST IS THE REALITY OF ROMANCE: Christ is the real romance, all other romance is a picture, a shadow and a type of Christ. The Bible stated with boy meet girl (Adam and Eve) and ends with boy marry girl (Christ and the Church). Each verse in the Bible is saturated with this divine romance between Christ and his Church. The Bible is a romantic book and God is the author of the most romantic story ever written. Every couple are just playing out the romance between Christ and his bride, for the real romance is the divine romance.
CHRIST IS THE REALITY OF MARRIAGE: Christ is the essence, meaning and purpose of marriage. "For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God in heaven." (Matt 22:30). There is a principle in the Bible that when the reality comes the shadow is no longer needed. When Christ comes and he marries his bride marriage will cease to exist. This is because all other marriage is symbol and type of the marriage between Christ and the Church. Christ is the only real marriage.
CHRIST IS THE REALITY OF SEX: If there is no marriage in heaven there will definitely be no sex. The is because sex is a shadow of things to come and the reality is Christ (Col 2:17). Sex is a picture and representation of the sweet romance and intimacy between the Church and her bridegroom (Christ).
CHRIST IS THE REALITY OF FAMILY: Family will also cease to exist after Christ coming. The only family that will exist is the family of God. Jesus came to break the old family and start the one and only true family (Matt 12:46-50. Matt 10:35-37. John 19:25-27. Luk 14:26. Pro 16-10. Matt 19:29). The reality of family is the body of Christ and since Christ is the head as well as the body. Then Christ is the reality of family. The Church is your family and the Church is Christ therefore Christ is your brother, sister, father and mother. Christ is your real family. All other family is but a shadow and a picture of Christ.
