“Write of the things that please us and we will read what you say. This life is full of toil and trouble and we have no time for more difficulty. But give us the oil of joy with your words and we will love you and pay you handsomely.”
You already have many who do that. They deliver to you the whisperings of a bride to her new husband. The sweet and intimate words are given to you that belong in the inner room of love.
There are those who deliver you, words that should not belong on their lips, to be displayed in public. They are made for the privacy of love. How should such things be delivered to His enemy?
I will not deliver you the words of love, such words as are for the God who has purchased me with his Holy and perfect blood. My love for him, that he has caused to be, belongs to him and I will not throw them on the battlefield.
Instead I will deliver to you what is helpful against your sin. Words of despising what is unholy, these I will deliver to you. For this you will despise me, for I will despise your wicked longing. I will despise the heart of man.
Such writings are as of those which the world hides in a dark corner; the pictures and words of lust. People giggle with delight as the things of the marriage bed are exposed to all; a thing that, by his command, should never be.
But you are outside the house. What you will see and read from me are the things that deter your entry; those things which test your heart. For such words will agree with the command of God toward those who hate him.
First pass by the guard. Be willingly stripped of all that is abhorrent to my husband. Be stripped of what is enemy; the weapons of slaughter you used to hang him on a cross.
Then allow yourself to be brought to the courtyard where you will learn the things that please him. There you will be taught with relentless, vicious truth. There you will learn to abhor what was yours. And if you are willing they will be beaten from you. Then your soul will wear the stripes that count you as one of his.
I will not write for you the things of lovely intent. Such writings are a lie to those who are of the enemy of God. They speak of his lovely promise unveiled. They speak of an eternity that does not belong to the enemy of God.
Come and hate me with jealousy. Come and ignore me for I will not give you your desire. Desire with jealousy; for such has been the conversion of many.
Present yourself to him that he may cleanse you, and then we are brothers and sisters alike. Then you yourself will hear the words that now you desire to know from me, a servant of the Most High, in Christ Jesus, blessed by his Holy promise and Holy will .
He is faithful and trustworthy and strong. He is the full promise of the Most High God. Beautiful is he and glorious! And sweet is he is Holy embrace!
But you O’ enemy of God, you desire to hear his beautiful words as if they are but pornography.
