When the Lord God Almighty told me that I could have his daughter's hand in marriage, I laughed and said, "Alright, prove it." He responded, "There's nothing to prove, it's a fact." I pondered his response, and questioned when. "When you're ready to defeat Satan" he said. I laughed again. "I am very serious" he said, "When you're ready, let me know and you can have her hand in marriage." So I set about to craft a plan to take the devil down. I knew that it would take a thousand years or more, perhaps six thousand years or so, but in the end I'd have her hand to wed.
We knew that we would have to start a brand new earth, but earth was where the devil always shone, earth was where he made his grandest promises, and earth was where the human toll was greatest. Yet earth was always where we had the grandest portend of success, for earth was where the humans used their brain in ways not even angels could access. The earth was there, we just needed to call it into being, and call it into being we did.
The first day of creation was the first day of the rest of this eternity that ends with the millennial reign of Christ. I knew the devil would defend his right to have the earth be his playground, but what I didn't know was how astute he had become in the years since he had fallen from the sky. He knew no intervention in the years since Eve had fallen, and he made the most of every waking hour. He plied and prodded, curled and crafted, and made his way to every human being whom God had sent to earth. When every human being was in his palm, the Lord descended to redeem them, if they ever wanted out. He became their King, their Messiah, and their redeeming friend.
On the second through sixth day of creation, the Lord God Almighty said to me that his daughter would need to be wooed, and he could not guarantee that she would want to marry me. I told him I would woo her to the end of all creation, and the close of all eternity and eternities combined. I didn't capture her heart by the close of all creation, nor at its redemption, but I certainly will do so when I crown her my woman of revelation. I will do so on August 17, 2017 when we defend her crown. There are many others, including men, who are claiming to be God's woman of revelation. They have done nothing for the kingdom of God that has had any impact whatsoever on anyone anywhere in the world.
She was chosen before time began, and before Adam and Eve came into being. She was titled a Woman of Revelation when the crown of twelve stars was placed on her tiny frame as she developed in the womb. She was listed among the prophets of God when she wrote a letter to the senior minister in a large southern congregation, challenging him on his theology, and catapulting him to a new level of Christian discipleship. That was more than twenty years ago.
She was listed as a woman of virtue when she took a vow of purity at her baptism on August 17, 1988. She was listed as a woman of noble character when she stated that she would never betray her God. She was listed among the women of influence when the Lord her God and several others named her one of the most influential women of the twenty-first century. She was listed among the women of virtuous character when the ether stated that she has never ever shoplifted a single item. She was listed among the women of infinite wisdom when her law school admission essay was used as the outline for a PBS documentary on athletic excellence. She was again listed among the women of purity when she exercised caution in her choice of relationships.
She was listed among the women of confrontational acuity when she challenged Pope Francis to place his focus on giving the indwelling Holy Spirit to all of Italy. She was listed among the women of foreboding when she challenged the Pentagon to stop selling military devices through corporate channels. She was listed as a woman of good humor when she stated to the Lord her God that she wanted him to start reading the tea leaves. She was listed as a woman whose diary was stolen and photocopied when she was a teen, in order to discover secrets that could be used against her at a later time. They were surprised at how pure it was, as compared with the diaries of American teens.
She was listed as a woman of good reputation when she stood up to federal authorities who claimed to be "investigating" her for unknown reasons, but had not discovered even a shred of evidence after more than sixteen years of tailing her and scrutinizing her every move. She was listed as a woman of viral popularity when her blog generated millions of followers within weeks of publication. She was listed as a woman of sustainable logic when her initiatives in regard to the climate accord saved the United States billions of dollars over ten years. She was listed as a woman of staunch moral character when she never did anything whatsoever to dishonor her calling and her purpose. She was listed as a woman of integrity when she vowed to never ever tell a lie.
She was listed as a woman of vagrant faith when she told Satan that if he did not release his hold on her apartment where God had determined she should live, she would curtail his access to his residence in hell. She locked him in a cage, along with six others whom he had given his spirit. They all escaped. She captured Satan again, locked him in another cage, and suspended it above the earth's atmosphere where it remains to this day. That was approximately two years ago, so if Satan paid you regular visits in the past, be grateful that he no longer does so.
She was listed as a woman of fancy attire when she arrived at work one day wearing a Castleberry knit suit. They thought she had found another job that paid more. She was listed as a woman with a potentially careening career when she was brought into a boutique law firm and promptly solved one of its most difficult problems that had plagued every case they filed. She was a litigation partner at the firm. She was listed as a woman, again with a potentially careening career, when she was brought into a firm as partner and attracted one of the highest paying clients the firm has ever seen. She was listed as a woman of mental acuity when she aced the Bar exam, despite having worked full time all summer while preparing for the exam.
She was listed as a woman of eternal common sense when she chose not to get married to any of the men who pursued her. She is my wife, my love, my life.
