BRIDE and EUNUCH

BY:  KEVIN C. BLACKER, SR.

FEBRUARY 2007 

Matt 19:11-12 11 But He said to them, “All cannot accept this saying, but only those to whom it has been given: 12 For there are eunuchs who were born thus from their mother’s womb, and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He who is able to accept it, let him accept it.”

G2135 From (a bed) and G2192; a castrated person (such being employed in Oriental bed chambers); by extension an impotent or unmarried man; by implication a chamberlain (state officer): —eunuch.

G2192; to hold

H5631 From an unused root meaning to castrate; a eunuch; by implication valet (especially of the female apartments), and thus a minister of state: —chamberlain, eunuch, officer. Compare H7249.

The eunuch keeps himself from the things of this world.  He is not a Canaanite that offers up his seed (Children-things you give birth too) to idol worship (baal). He holds back the seed of the flesh that is within him.  He has chosen not to sow to the flesh any longer. He reckons it dead.  The knife has been used in such a way that there isn’t any need to even try.  Although sometimes a desire might arise, as a shadow of the night, he knows he needn’t even try.  He’s been called to serve the King.  You can’t serve two Masters, your flesh and the Spirit.  

There are those in the body of Christ who have come to a place that their only desire is to please their Master.  They can’t see anything else.  To seek anything else is to break covenant.  They only seek what is His desire.  The training they have undergone has taught them what is pleasing or displeasing to Him.  Because they have undergone this training now the King is able to put great trust in them. They have been proven to know the heart of the King.  They won’t go into the harhems (churches) and take the bride for themselves.  Their only desire is to prepare the bride for The King.  (And he gave some…for the perfecting of the saints…Till we all come in the unity of the faith…unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.  Eph 4:11-13)

A strange thing has happened.  One seed has been cut off while another seed has come to fruit within.  Is anyone or anything telling you that it is all right to do as you please with the seed that God has placed within you?  Is the seed of God abiding in you?  Has His heart become your heart, His character your character, His desires your desires?  If not, there are those that have been prepared to prepare you to know how to go in before The King.   

Many today seek things from the Master’s table.  Why have they not received?  What do you seek after, health, wealth, long-life, a wife, a husband, a kingdom, revelation, a ministry, to keep you out of hell, deliverance from trouble, your life, or just Him?  God will bless and deliver us, but most of all He wants our hearts. 

In the Song of Songs the Shulammite goes through many changes and most of these are from within.  She represents the bride of Christ in type and shadow.  “My beloved is mine, and I am his:” (S of S 2:16) this is a position of selfishness.  She first sees him from the viewpoint of what he can do for her.  When you are in need you call on Him and back on the shelf He goes until the next need or want.  As time goes on through much tribulation she comes to a change of heart.  No longer is He first her possession and then she His.  She makes the most precious of statements, “I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine.” (Chapter 6:3)  Now she has come to understand that she is first His.  We are created for His good pleasure.  He responds to this change in her heart and she can hardly bare the love from His gaze.  “Turn away thine eyes from me, for they have overcome me:” (Chapter 6:5) “I am my beloved’s, and His desire is toward me.” (Chapter 7:10)  Has He been expressing His loves toward you?  Have a change of heart.  Don’t be jealous of someone else that He is speaking to, but consider and have a change of heart.  He will not share your heart with another.  Repent of your other lover’s and become a chaste virgin to Him.  If you seek as the Shulammite (Chapter 5:5-16, 6:1-2) you’ll find Him and your heart will forever be changed.

In the book of Esther we see the purpose of the eunuch in relationship to the bride of Christ.  Esther, who’s Jewish name was Hadassah, meaning, the myrtle (1919), from (1918-Bride).  The myrtle tree (evergreen shrub) has fragrant leaves and white or pink flowers that were used to perfume rooms and made into wreaths for the nobility in their banqueting.  Its edible but astringent bluish-black berries were swallowed to sweeten the breath. (His breath – The Holy Spirit)  The Israelites took fragrant branches of the myrtle, among others, to make booths for the Feast of Tabernacles. (3rd feast at the time of harvest)

Dearly beloved I hope you are seeing yourself in these types and shadows.  When a brother or sister (eunuchs) comes to you with a word that seems to be over your head or in the heavenlies, don’t write them off.  If they have been alone with the King in His inner chamber that word is Spirit and life to those who can hear it.  Jesus was and is always speaking over our carnal or natural minds.  We have to change our way of thinking and hearing.  To be carnally minded is death, but to be Spiritually minded is life.  After all we are growing up into the mind of Christ.   

In Esther, many virgins were called, but only one was going to be selected as the Bride and Queen.  Does this mean that only a few will enter in?  No, but there is a training in how to go in before the King.  There is a corporate bride that enters in as a first fruit company. The eunuch was available to all the virgins.  Not everyone is submitting to the training at this time. Many imagine that they are already prepared to go in before Him and in so doing deceive themselves.  Are your offerings being accepted? Are they pleasing to Him?  Hebrews teaches us that unbelief will keep us from entering into His rest (Abode).  You need to be in faith to the work of God in your life.  We are at the hour of the greatest display of the glory of God in the earth.  Creation is about to be delivered and His Bride is going to play a pivotal role in this deliverance.  It is time to allow the eunuchs to train you as Esther did.  Sure their voices are a little different than yours.  Eunuchs were noted for their clear and beautiful voices.  Their zeal (single-mindedness) can be uncompromisingly intense and even offensive to the adamic man or soulish woman.  They look upon the Eunuch’s castration as nothing to be desired and are appalled with such a thought.  Who would want to give up a life of liberty, serving your own desires, for a life that is bound with such restraint?  The Eunuchs live only to serve the desires and wishes of the King.  They don’t see the harness, but have great joy in their calling. They are constantly going into the presence of the King.  No longer knowing Him after His acts, but learning of His ways. (Ps 103:7) 

This service can cover a wide range of authority.  The eunuch in Acts 8:27-39 had great authority under Queen Candace of the Ethiopians and was in charge of all her treasure. Hegai (eunuch) in the book of Esther was responsible for the purification of the virgins.  Esther was the one, but she had to be prepared.   Putting her trust in this eunuch she found favor with him.  I’m sure she came to have great love and respect for this man.  He taught her everything that the King liked or disliked, most importantly, how to go into His presence.  (You can be in the palace, but still not in His presence) He was fully aware of every area of the Kings life (His nature and character).  It was still up to the King to make His selection, but by her listening to Hegai’s instructions her spiritual ears became in tune to the heart of the King giving herself the best chance to be selected Queen.

The day finally came for each virgin to go in before the King.  They all could go into the treasury to select any choice of jewels, clothing, or perfumes they wished.  Esther wasn’t concerned with what she wanted to wear, but what the King would like.  Your own righteousness isn’t appealing to Him, but seeing the nature of His Son in you is.  Is His seed coming forth (being manifest) in you yet?  Do you know what He likes?  Do you love what He loves?  Do you think that He’ll receive you any old way?  Have you considered listening to the eunuchs that God has given to care for you?  Some hear the eunuchs wisdom and see their love for the King.  Listen to what the King says about His eunuchs. 

Isaiah 56:3-5 3 Do not let the son of the foreigner Who has joined himself to the LORD Speak, saying, “The LORD has utterly separated me from His people”; Nor let the eunuch say, “Here I am, a dry tree.”  4 For thus says the LORD: “To the eunuchs who keep My Sabbaths, And choose what pleases Me, And hold fast My covenant, 5 Even to them I will give in My house And within My walls a place and a name Better than that of sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting name That shall not be cut off. 

Would you like God to give you a place in the wall of His house, a name (nature & character) that shall not be cut off? (Put to shame)

The LORD speaks of three things that were pleasing to Him.  They are to keep His Sabbaths.  Do you cease from doing your own thing when He asks you to?  Do you choose those things that please Him or just what pleases your self-life?  Do you hold fast His covenant? It has been said, “we are not under that covenant of the old anymore.”  True, you are under a new covenant.

Heb. 10:16-17 16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

Notice that it is after His laws are written in your heart and mind that your sins aren’t remembered anymore.  Walk in sin today and you’ll certainly feel his rod of correction.  If you don’t:  read Hebrews 12:8.

Phil. 3:2-4, 2 Beware of dogs (unbelievers), beware of evil workers, and beware of the mutilation! 3 For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh, 4 though I also might have confidence in the flesh. 9 and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;

Col. 2:6-12 6 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, 7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving. 8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power. 11 In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, 12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.

Rom. 2:28, 29 28 For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; 29 but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.

I say to the eunuchs take heart, there is a virgin (bride) that will listen to you and you will have the joy of preparing her for the King of Kings.  Esther (The bride) was given authority over her enemy Haman and all that he had decreed.  Haman was the son of Hammedotha; which means, (son of Ham).  Ham was the father of Canaan.  Because of sin, Canaanites were not allowed to rule, but had to serve.  Do you think Haman was a Canaanite?  The Canaanites were to be driven out of Israel.  Remember they offer up their children to be burned in the fire (Baal worship).  What are you doing with the seed that God has placed in you?  Is a bride (soul-mind, will, and emotions) being birthed in you that has a heart like Rebekah. (Gen. 24) When it came time for Isaac to inherit all, Abraham knew it was time for Isaac to have a wife; Abraham called his eldest servant that was in charge of all that he had.  Imagine this one that Abraham trusted with everything that he had.  What took place here is not to be seen after the flesh, but in the Spirit! The bond of a covenant is not to be taken lightly.  This one I believe was a bondservant and in love relationship with his master, one of the 300 that rescued Lot and the others from the five kings.  He was under the covenant of circumcision of the flesh and the heart.  He said to his servant, “Reach under my thigh and swear to me that you will not allow my Isaac to be joined unto a Canaanite (soulish idolatry), but that you’ll go to my brother’s people and find a wife for him there.”  This word thigh was used in Exodus 1:5 And all the souls that came out of the loins (3409) of Jacob…

When he told him to reach under his thigh, he was saying grab hold of my loins and swear by this covenant.  What a serious moment this was; that Abraham would ask such a thing.  And what a time it is for us that are hearing such a word in this hour.  God is telling us not to take His seed that He has placed in us and join it to a Canaanite, Who take their seed and sacrifice it to the gods of this world.  What are you doing with the seed (Christ) that He has placed within you?  Have you taken this covenant of circumcision lightly?  God hasn’t!  Are you hiding it within your earth that it can’t be seen?  Is His life in you being manifest and seen by others?  This seed is not to be held back in a state of unrighteousness. 

ROM 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; This word hold comes from the same base word of Eunuch. G2192; to hold (refer to page one)

In January 2006 I had a dream from the Lord:

“I was walking down a hall made of stone, off to my right was another hall with an Indian woman (adamic soul) in a bathroom. (adamic soul needing to get rid of some waste)  As I continued ahead, I came into a very large room with a ceiling of at least fifty feet tall.  The room was made of stone.  There was work equipment on the floor off to my right as if something had just been worked on.  I looked to my left and there was a wall filled with squares of a yard in diameter making up the wall.  This was a wall of memorial representing individuals.  I saw one square with a man on his knees praying with his elbows upon a rock.  Another had a sword and shield upon it, etc. (all the squares were embossed) I was standing with my hand over my open mouth weeping in awe.”  (End of dream)

Later at the end February 2006 the Lord gave me the understanding of the dream while driving and listening to Isaiah 56:3-5.  I didn’t know before that I was a eunuch in God’s eyes.  My sole desire is to help prepare the bride for Him.  So consider my words for I don’t speak of myself, but the word that He has written in me.

The story of Esther doesn’t end with just becoming The Bride and Queen.  God had a far greater purpose for her and you.  Have you come to realize that the uncircumcised Canaanite (Haman-man of sin) is out to rob you of the seed of promise in you and your brethren?  Is there an impostor in your house trying to rob you of your inheritance?

There is one that wants you to breathe in his way of thinking, (prince of the power of the air (breath)… that worketh in the children of disobedience. Eph 2:2) His breathe kills, but God’s Holy Spirit (breath) is life.  This enemy, and all his children, take the truth and twist it into a lie.  Take heed in what you are breathing in.  The Spirit (breath) that raised Christ will also raise us up. (Rom 6:4)  So be sure of what you are breathing in. For what you breathe in will be breathed out.  Notice when you say “Holy Spirit” it is exhaled.  Anytime God changed ones name this exhale was added: Abram to Abraham, Sarai to Sarah, and Jacob to Israel. You have to receive The Holy Spirit (breath) to be made alive from the death state of Adam.  He gives you His nature with His Spirit.  Remember you were dead in sin and He is now raising you up in newness of life.                   

My heart is full and over flowing with such excitement, passion and zeal in this hour.  It is time to put off the dead works of our flesh and put on the fruit of His Spirit.  It is the morning of the third day, His day, in which He is the only one glorified.  We have been driven to go into the inner chamber (Holy of Holies) where He is more than husband, but He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  Esther didn’t walk in unprepared as some think to do.  If they do, they’ll be slain at the door. (Esther 4:11) Even the Queen dares not without great consideration.  The King has not called her for 30 days.  Has He withdrawn and you don’t know why?  In the Song of Songs the Shulammite goes through the same thing. (S of S 5:6) Is He displeased with me?  When Queen Vashti was called to come before the King, she refused, being concerned with her own feasts. (EST 1:9-12)  In so doing lost her position and was not allowed into the king’s presence. (EST 1:19-20)  In this hour He is not calling, but who is being driven to seek His face.  Unbelief is what happened to natural Israel; therefore they entered not into His rest (abode).

“Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. 7And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.” And the LORD said, unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job… (Job 1:6-8) 

Can the enemy still walk up and down in your land?  Have you cut him off that he can’t find a dwelling place in you?  Are you in agreement with God, that when you present yourself to Him, He’ll hold out the sceptre?  There should be no pretence or assumptions in this hour.  Esther prepared herself by fasting for three days. (Three feasts)  Not feeding her flesh with the things of this world.  She then clothed herself with her royal apparel that was required by The King. 

Col. 3:2-14 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears (manifests), then you also will appear (be manifest) with Him in glory. 5 Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. 6 Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, 7 in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them. 8 But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. 9 Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, 10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, 11 where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all. 12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. 14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. (Matt 22:1-14, Zep 1:1-12, Rev 3:5, 18)

The day came when Esther stood at the entrance to the inner court to be accepted or rejected.  Are we in agreement with the sceptre of His throne? (The sceptre of thy throne is holiness)  What a time we’ve come to.  We are coming to ask for power over our enemy.  What a time of joy, fear, trembling, quaking, rejoicing, and awe!  This moment just takes my breath away.  She stands totally surrendered with her life placed in His hands.  Nothing held back.   

The attention of The King is drawn to the entrance by the sudden alertness of the eunuchs to danger!  Someone has come unannounced!  No one would dare risk their life and do such a thing.  His heart is moved beyond words.  I once had a queen that wouldn’t come when called (Vashti-natural Israel) and now I have a Queen that is come without being called. She has placed her life in my hands!  “Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners?” (S of S 6:10)   Have you ever had someone come into your presence and something was written all over his or her face and you asked, “What!”  Listen to what the King says.

2…When the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, that she obtained favour in his sight: and the king held out to Esther the golden sceptre that was in his hand. So Esther drew near, and touched the top of the sceptre. 3 Then said the king unto her, what wilt thou, Queen Esther? And what is thy request?  It shall be even given thee to the half of the kingdom.” (Esther 5:2-3)

Esther wasn’t just going to make her request, but was going to feed The King with what has been birth in her.  In Song of Songs the Shulammite was before being invited to go down to His garden, (S of S 2:10-13, 7:10-13) but now Esther was inviting Him to not only eat, but also to a banquet of wine. (EST 5:6) She knows what it means to drink of the suffering of Christ that produces His LIFE. (Ps 119:130) The processing in the Bride has brought her into greater devotion to her King and love for her Husband that brings her into total abandonment.

And it shall be in that day, saith the LORD that thou shalt call me Ishi; (Husband-champion) and shalt call me no more Baali. (Husband- master, Lord, owner) (Hosea 2:16)

Oh beloved if you can hear this it will be life to your bones.  Jesus made a statement, “My hour is not yet come” when He turned the water to wine. (John 2:3-4) Spiritually speaking, has He turned the word (water) in you to His Holy Spirit LIFE (wine)? He is saving the best for last! 

“Who is this that cometh up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved? (S of S 8:5) “And the servant abideth not in the house for ever, but the Son abideth ever” (John 8:35) “…and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.” (Zech 14:21)
