I like Zac and have met him and have been blessed by many of his teachings and will not speak badly of him. I don't agree with everything he says but that is normal as he like we, are mere men. What did you think about the article that this thread is all about?God bless you.I'll check those websites out.
Lily is feminine?
Sgs 2:2 " Like a lily among the thorns, So is my darling among the maidens." Personally this points me to the cross. My lord wore a crown of thorns because he picked up his cross. We are to pick up our cross and follow him. We are to deny self. Thorns are also compared to the "riches and pleasures" of life. These choke the word. We are to deny ourselves the pleasures and riches of life which we see all around us. Jesus is the Lily for he is the Christ. We are lilies for we are christians, and as such let us pick up our cross daily and follow Him.
Amen, MyVeryHeart, we cannot be dogmatic about "types" in the Word. "types" often have dual meanings between Jesus and His Bride. We will miss many of the riches of His Word. Let the Holy Spirit speak.1Jn 4:17b ...because as he is, so are we in this world. Some more examples:He is the Lamb of God, and we are lambs of God.He is the Israel of God and we are the Israel of God. He was the Branch out of dry ground and we are branches in the vine.

John 14:2323 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. By receiving His Word, we receive Him and make Him welcome in our hearts. Our hearts become His abode and He reclines with us and sups (fellowship, relationship), with us.
