Back when I lived in the San Diego area, I observed what I assumed to be a lesbian couple, buying beverages at a local coffee shop. I recall having compassion on them for some reason. My heart went out to them, which prompted me to inquire of the Lord of His two beloved ones. In that moment, I believe the Holy Spirit spoke to me, not necessarily in words, but with communication that swept through my mind and gave me revelation I didn’t previously have. Of course, discern for yourselves if you think the following is from the Spirit or from my imagination. We all need checks and balances.
First, the word “synergy” or something like it, popped into my mind. I wasn’t fully sure of its exact meaning, but this is what came to me. It tied two concepts together: “coming together” and “energy.” It’s easiest if I explain the picture I got.
I saw the “glowing golden energy” of two separate souls. The energy of each soul swirled about in the air beautifully. When they got very close to one another, an increasingly strong bond was felt between the two—it was the kind of bond that would make it difficult to pull apart easily. However, never did the energies actually TOUCH one another; they COULDN’T touch one another. I knew intuitively they could NEVER combine and become ONE. It was because of the energy properties; simple as that.
This vision seemed to be a metaphor for what happens when two women attempt to come together sexually. They may feel “as one,” perhaps emotionally, but really they are not one in spirit/soul; it is a false sense of oneness. There may be love and/or lust; there may be a genuine sense of pull or attraction, but they can never truly be one in the SAME sense where it says in the Bible that “Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived. . .” (See Gen 4:1)
My impression is with God’s basic, but grand design, there’s a supernatural element that occurs when a man and woman come together in marriage—a miraculous bonding that indeed makes them one in spirit—a oneness of which same sex couples may desire, but of which they cannot truly partake, because things have not been ordained in their intricate design.
Later, I found the following scripture that speaks of this “oneness” between husband and wife. It demonstrates how God’s hand is actively involved in this process, as He gives “. . . a portion of the Spirit . . .” to secure their union.
From Malachi 2:15 (ESV)—“15 Did he not make them one, with a portion of the Spirit in their union? And what was the one God seeking? Godly offspring.”
And here is the full verse in a different version.
Malachi 2:15 (Amplified)—“15 And did not God make [you and your wife] one [flesh]? Did not One make you and preserve your spirit alive? And why [did God make you two] one? Because He sought a godly offspring [from your union]. Therefore take heed to yourselves, and let no one deal treacherously and be faithless to the wife of his youth.”
It seems there are two separate aspects of a man and woman miraculously becoming one. First, when a husband and wife “know” one another (have sexual relations), and second, when a child is born through this union. I find it interesting to read about God’s heart and vision for intimacy and family.
Granted, there can be loveless marriages between a man and wife; and more love and respect in some same sex unions. However, what I believe God has displayed here, as I SOUGHT answers, is His ORIGINAL and therefore CONTINUED vision for loving marriages between one man and one woman. It may not make complete sense to all, but I hope if one claims to be a follower of Jesus of the Bible, they may at least ASK God about this—so that they may have revelation of what is true, rather than go by one’s own wisdom, feelings and/or emotions.
