Overcome with an Overcomer

Christ is overcome with the beauty of His Bride as He views her in the holiness of a Finished Work. No longer separated by the veil of the flesh, He is faced with her as she stands without spot. She is not found in any other place but in the true beauty of perfection. The realization comes as the Bride is able to respond in perfect love to the initiation of her Lord.

The veil has been rent (Matthew 27:51) and the believer begins to overcome Christ because through Christ he has overcome all he was in Adam. The Bride has been terrible as an army with banners (Song of Solomon 6:10). She stands in fierce conviction and proclamation of her one victory in Christ through the Finished Work. She declares victory in every area in the midst of a corporate army.

The Bride can now turn her eyes away. She does not have to look into His eyes for she is looking through His eyes. She is His body, His flesh and His bones (Ephesians 5:30). She is one Spirit with Him (1 Corinthians 6:17). She is His own (Ephesians 2:15). He is her Head and she is His body. My body cannot look at my eyes, but my eyes can look at my body. She no longer has to look at His eyes because she is the body that conveyed His eyes to others.

The Finished Work has given her the sight of faith. Her eyes are turned away that she might lift them to the fields that are white and ready to harvest ( John 4:35).
