The Bridal Chamber Mystery

This page will examine the Bridal Chamber in a step by step manner until the mystery of the chamber can be revealed. The first introduction to the Bridal Chamber is seen in the green boxes of the Joint Body Chiasm. Then on this page, the Chamber is seen after the Bridal Chamber Preparations are complete. Next will be considered the down and up movements of the male within the female. First, will be considered the down movement symbolic of the incarnation.  Then the up movement symbolic of the ascension will be seen. Finally, near the bottom of this page, the up and down movements of the male within the female will be amalgamated creating 26 new alignments. At this point the Bridal Chamber Mysteries can be declared and seen in the newly formed chiasmic alignments. The up and down movements prepare the reader for Heaven and Earth becoming One.

Male and Female Key words:
Inside / Outside

Will you enter the kingdom /

(22) Jesus saw infants being suckled. He said to his disciples, "These infants being suckled are like those who enter the kingdom."
They said to him, "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?"
(22b) Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; and when you fashion eyes in the place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, and a likeness in place of a likeness; then will you enter the kingdom."
This is a cross over point for both the Outer Chiasm and the Inner Chiasm. The left and the right of the two structures are one and the same from the Bridal chamber, verses (9/104) until these verses (22/89).

is put around the shoulders of an animal.  This appears to be the core or shoulder of the boldily structure of the Spirit Body. The Greek of yoke is zygos - From the root of zeugnumi : to join, especially by a "yoke") This is perfect joining of male and female in the bridal chamber.

(90) Jesus said, "Come unto me, for my yoke is easy and my lordship is mild, and you will find repose for yourselves."

(21) Mary said to Jesus, "Whom are your disciples like?"
He said, "They are like children who have settled in a field which is not theirs. When the owners of the field come, they will say, 'Let us have back our field.' They (will) undress in their presence in order to let them have back their field and to give it back to them. Therefore I say, if the owner of a house knows that the thief is coming, he will begin his vigil before he comes and will not let him dig through into his house of his domain to carry away his goods. You, then, be on your guard against the world. Arm yourselves with great strength lest the robbers find a way to come to you, for the difficulty which you expect will (surely) materialize. Let there be among you a man of understanding. When the grain ripened, he came quickly with his sickle in his hand and reaped it. Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear."

Preparations For The Bridal Chamber


In preparation for the Bridal Chamber Initiation

The Joining or Amalgamation of Certain Alignment through the use of Keywords is Useful


For Clarity and simplicity the connections and amalgamations between certain related alignments are here illustrated in preparation for the next movement within the Bridal Chamber.


The Bright Light in the Bridal Chamber is a significant part of the Bridal Chamber Mystery. Light and Fire are one and same thought, so the alignments containing these sayings 11 and 10 (in the yellow boxes) are joined together to create one new amalgamated alignment. In like manner, the alignments containing Mother and Father (105) and Bridal Chamber (104) are joined together (in the red box) because of the agreement. This is significant because in this next step there will be an alignment of the Fire and Light sayings with the Mother, Father and the Bridal Chamber sayings. Put simply, there is a Blazing Fire and a Bright Light when the Mother and Father are joined together in the Bridal Chamber


The foot saying alignment, which was joined within the bridal chamber in the previous initiation,  continues to be shown here, but now is shown as  an amalgamated alignment because of this earlier movement of the female upon the male. This alignment continues to be illustrated by the pink boxes of sayings 14 and 97.

He said, "They are like children who have settled in a field which is not theirs. When the owners of the field come, they will say, 'Let us have back our field.' They (will) undress in their presence in order to let them have back their field and to give it back to them. Therefore I say, if the owner of a house knows that the thief is coming, he will begin his vigil before he comes and will not let him dig through into his house of his domain to carry away his goods. You, then, be on your guard against the world. Arm yourselves with great strength lest the robbers find a way to come to you, for the difficulty which you expect will (surely) materialize. Let there be among you a man of understanding. When the grain ripened, he came quickly with his sickle in his hand and reaped it. Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear."

In the Bridal Chamber
There is an up and down movement of the male within the female.
The inner male columns move up and down within the outer female columns creating new alignments.

The Bridegroom descends and ascends upon the female.


     
("He ascended"—what does it mean,
 but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth?
     He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens,
that He might fill all things.)


Therefore He says: "When He ascended on high,
.... And gave gifts to men... till we all come...
to the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man,
to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
that we should no longer be children " Ephesians 4:8-10,13,14.

"The Wisdom that is from above (that descends from above)  is... gentle," James 3:15, 17.

    And "the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel,
and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first," 1 Thessalonians 4:16



The New Alignments
Created by the Up and Down Movement of The Male Upon the Female
This also foreshadows the joining of heaven and earth.


The Down Movement


First, the 13 new alignments created by The Down Movement of the male within the female.
This is reminiscent of the incarnation, and the obedience to the point of the cross.

They (will) undress in their presence in order to let them have back their field and to give it back to them. Therefore I say, if the owner of a house knows that the thief is coming, he will begin his vigil before he comes and will not let him dig through into his house of his domain to carry away his goods. You, then, be on your guard against the world. Arm yourselves with great strength lest the robbers find a way to come to you, for the difficulty which you expect will (surely) materialize. Let there be among you a man of understanding. When the grain ripened, he came quickly with his sickle in his hand and reaped it. Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear."

Let there be among you a man of understanding. When the grain ripened, he came quickly with his sickle in his hand and reaped it. Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear."

While she was walking on the road, still some distance from home, the handle of the jar broke and the meal emptied out behind her on the road. She did not realize it; she had noticed no accident. When she reached her house, she set the jar down and found it empty."

a fire will come out of the stones and burn you up."

The rocking motion in the bridal chamber
(see the pink boxes) will connect the Fire (10) with the Bridal Chamber (104). This now becomes even more evident in these charts joining the perfectly joined spiritual with spiritual within the bridal chamber.

(9) Jesus said, "Now the sower went out, took a handful (of seeds), and scattered them. Some fell on the road; the birds came and gathered them up. Others fell on the rock, did not take root in the soil, and did not produce ears. And others fell on thorns; they choked the seed(s) and worms ate them. And others fell on the good soil and it produced good fruit: it bore sixty per measure and a hundred and twenty per measure."


Sower scatters seeds

(8) And he said, "The man is like a wise fisherman who cast his net into the sea and drew it up from the sea full of small fish. Among them the wise fisherman found a fine large fish. He threw all the small fish back into the sea and chose the large fish without difficulty. Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear."


Chose the large fish
 




In Preparation The Mother and Father are brought to the Bridal Chamber. 

(104) They said to Jesus, "Come, let us pray today and let us fast."
Jesus said, "What is the sin that I have committed, or wherein have I been defeated? But when the bridegroom leaves the bridal chamber, then let them fast and pray."





Bridegroom leaves

When she reached her house, she set the jar down and found it empty."
