And it shall be at that day, saith the Lord,
that thou shalt call me Ishi;(my husband)
The coming of the Comforter is a holy thing,
a solemn act,
and must be preceded by an intelligent and solemn covenant
between the soul and God.
It is the marriage of the soul to the Redeemer,
and it is not a “trial marriage.”
No true marriage is rushed into carelessly.
It is carefully considered,
and it is based upon complete separation
and consecration and the most solemn pledges and vows.
So, if the Comforter is come to abide,
to be with us and in us evermore,
we must come out an be separate for Him,
we must consecrate ourselves to Jesus fully and forever,
and we must covenant to be the Lord’s
“for better or for worse,”
and we must trust Him.
The soul that thus truly and solemnly dedicates itself to Him
become His, and He will come to that soul to abide forever
to be its “shield and exceeding great reward.”
And I said unto her,
Thou shalt abide for me many days;
thou shalt not play the harlot,
and thou shalt not be for another man:
so will I also be for thee.
Consider our vows . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
