LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT.....yea Lord I believe



Do you believe?

  • Love at first sight
  • Arranged marriages
  • Found children
Adam and Eve had the first arranged marriage by their parents, it's true. Here it is in Matt 19:5, for this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.

I have always thought that the proper translation of "one flesh" should be of one heart. I mean I am not a Bible translator, but one heart seems more relevant. Do you think Adam and Eve met on a blind date, or a speed date or some kind of heavenly dating service?  I think that Adam and Eve are patterns for Gods sons and daughters, to show us how to seek for those better things that he has promised for a loving relationship and marriage.

Did you think that they were married when they came here? Nope, I could be wrong, but maybe not. Jesus said ( in Luke 20:34-36)”The people of this world and present age marry and are given in marriage; but those who are considered worthy to gain that other world and that future age and to attain to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage.”  Wait a minute, what? The marriage process is part of the eternal progression? It’s like part of the body package. 
  For they cannot die again, but they are ([a]angel-like and [b]equal to angels.) They are immortal and partakers of the heavenly gift of eternal life; they are sons and daughters of God.For this reason, a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one (flesh) heart? So they are no longer two, but one (flesh) heart. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not (separate) cast asunder. (Matt 19:5-6)

Now in some translations, the word flesh is translated as heart, and to separate is translated as "cast asunder" What does it mean to cast asunder? It means to literally tear apart, to cast means throwing down and being trampled underfoot. It is like “cast not your pearls before swine, they are in danger of being trampled underfoot.
So the union of man and woman is such that it cannot be “torn apart” by the world, neither the sanctity of love between a man and woman is trampled underfoot.  
But wait, I am getting ahead of myself. Let’s talk about Adam and Eve and when they met. So romantic!!!!!!

So there is so much grief about Adam being created first, Eve being a help meet yada yada.  But let’s read that story again:  In the book of Abraham (lds)  1:26" And the Gods took counsel among themselves and said: Let us go down and form man in our image, after our likeness…..And we will give him dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of air, and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth."  

 Adam was a man after Gods on heart, hard worker, responsible, loved animals etc. He was a man like David. This is what the Lord said of David:” I have found David, son of Jesse a man after my own heart: he will carry out my will in its entirety.” Acts 13:22.
Adam was beloved too, but was Adam alone in the garden? No he wasn’t, Eve was there too.
Abraham 1:27” so the Gods went down to organize man in their own image, in the image of the Gods they him, male and female to form they them. “

Have you ever wondered what Adam & Eve looked like? They were created in Gods own image, his own heart. David was described 1 Samuel 16:12 as having a healthy reddish complexion, and beautiful eyes and was fine looking. Anoint him for this is he.”  (So David was hot and so was Adam)

I know, we are getting to the good part. ”14 And the Gods said: Let us make a help meet for man, for it is not good that the man should be left alone, therefore we will form a help meet for him.” Was Eve in the garden? Did Adam have open heart surgery so that a woman could be “made” from him? The Lord said “And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in my statutes and keep my rules and obey them. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God. (That they shall united in one heart) Ezekiel 11:19-20

The Lord teaches in patterns. He prepares the heart and "creates" a human, like Adam waiting for Eve; he creates in the pattern of line upon line, precept upon precept. And that "here a little" and there a little seems to allow for humanness, and frailty and strength renewed
Oops, did I forget about the deep sleep and the rib? So I am no bible scholar, or Hebrew expert, but in Abraham 5:15 the Gods caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept. I have often wondered if Adam was in the process of receiving deep truths thru revelation for the course of his life and his future wife Eve. That Eve too was in this “deep sleep” this revelatory process, being taught, having their hearts intertwined as one. This is a spiritual process.
I mean love is like that, hearts working as one. So now Eve is called Wo-man, which points to partner, helper. It isn’t noted as Co-man, or two working on the same project. Help meet denotes one who is like or complimenting the other. It is the image of the other, one heart that beats for both, so heart of my heart, bone of my bone.
And they lived, according to the plan of happiness, to become immortal and have eternal life.
I am a hopeful romantic. I know that the Lord is preparing my heart, and your heart for love. 
1 Corinthians 2: 9 But as it is written, eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God, has prepared for them that love him. 


Here is a poem for you "hopeful romantics, and earnest seekers. 
See you when I see you

I want to meet someone who makes my heart flutter and gives me sweaty palms. Not because he’s charming or says all the right words because he knows the game-but because he is kind and because he thirsts for Jesus in a very authentic way. 
Someone who is funny-who can make my stomach hurt from laughter because the world needs more of that. Someone who is flawed but relentlessly seeks after God in their humanness. Someone who knows darkness and therefore knows the depths of light.
I know that in today’s world, this kind of person is very few and far between. But I won’t give up in holding out, I won’t settle for anyone to compensate my loneliness.
I am not a half looking for someone to make me whole, I am whole now, I have joy now.
But I hope to do this life thing with you someday, and I hope this waiting is deepening you into a better, stronger person as it is for me.  I can’t wait to not be strangers.
See you when I see you.

Oh yes and I can't leave you with out at least one song from the heart. 
Keith Urban: Making Memories of us

Happy New Years everyone, turn your love light on, sweep the earth for that person that God is creating a new heart just for you.
