Dial Daily Bread

Dear Friends of "Dial Daily Bread":

Is the divine Son of God still also a human being? We read that “in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. ... And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father ...” (John 1:1, 14).

Yes, we believe.

Now can we ask a question: is this divine Son of God still with us as a human Being?

If the answer is Yes (and we believe it is!), can we ask another question: does He know human impatience for His “marriage of the Lamb [to] come”? Doesn’t any bridegroom who truly loves the “woman” committed to him long for the wedding day to come? (Assuming of course that he hasn’t already moved in with her in violation of God’s commandments, taking prematurely what God has not yet given him in holy, public marriage.)

Can we say that Jesus has no feeling of urgency for His marriage to come?

Does He truly love that “corporate woman” with a desire to be “one” with “her”?

If the answer is yes, is He beginning to be impatient with those who are hindering it, “frustrating the grace of God” (cf. Gal. 2:21)? They are shying away from the “honeymoon” which of course must come, the time of intimacy together?

Before the Lord Jesus can come in the clouds of heaven in fulfillment of His promise in John 14:1-3, the grand end time events of earth’s history must first come, including the close of human probation and the time when the “corporate woman” of His choice must “dwell in the sight of a holy God without a Mediator” and endure as “seeing Him who is invisible”(Heb. 11:27).

The answer to all these questions is “Yes!” And yes, the Lord Jesus Christ, still human as well as eternally divine, wants those final events to be now: He is tired of the anguish and suffering of the “have-nots” in the world as well as of the useless vanity and pure selfish pleasure of its “haves.” He longs to answer every prayer for relief from pain.

If you “know” Him, in your intimacy with Him you can clearly sense that divine-human impatience, that longing which He cannot hide any longer. If we are following the Lamb wherever He goes (Rev. 14:4), we will participate in that impatience, too.
