The Hypostatic Union:

A New Revolution of Love

(A Witness to a Covenant of Love from God and a Purely, Divine, Spiritual Ecstasy)

NOTE:

This article’s primary intention is not to share in argument with theologians, scholars, or philosophers for I have not the mental capacity nor the perseverance and stamina to argue. My purpose is to share with other lay people the miracles of love in marriages where we have established a covenant with God, and with each other. However, the entire message I tirelessly have succumbed to in understanding its value is demonstrated more clearly by Pope John Paul II and Christopher West through their respective books. I believe with all my heart are the sacred keys to living in marriage with each other as we initiate or reinitiate a covenant with Christ as well as each other.

Introduction

Did God create for humankind a manner to witness through the man/woman’s conjugative state to experience union with Himself? Yes, from a personal encounter we may witness the hypostasis of Jesus Christ within our loving embrace for each other and the trust we have freely given to one another in the truest essence of love. The hypostatic union remains ever more omnipotently powerful through hearts of mercy. Yes, through forgiveness we may experience hypostasis and a hypostatic union with our Lord Jesus Christ, as was in the same spirit of Divine love through the Incarnation. Interesting enough remains many definitions contributing to hypostasis as the “two natures of Jesus [and] refers to the doctrine that the one person Jesus Christ had/has two natures, divine and human.” Within the theological circles of scholars, this is called “the doctrine of the hypostatic union, from the Greek word hypostasis (which came to mean substantive reality).” www.theopedia.com So, why would Christ not allow us to be one with Himself in the divine and human nature? For me, this is (or certainly should be), the fundamental and primary basis for our love for one another. To be enraptured by love with our God of Love and Mercy where upon the climax of love we may be blessed with a purely, divine, spiritual ecstasy leaving us breathless and in a holy daze of love that may linger for years, if not decades, well on into the rest of our lives. As if God has granted a blessing to cross over the Jordan River into the land, He has promised us if we choose to trust Him and obey His Divine Will. What a divinely worthy blessing this would be. Think of the saints of the church who have experienced a transformative crossover into ecstasy in witness to God’s Holy and Pure Love. And, to think He renders this experience even to lay persons throughout denominational boundaries. Why, I argue, is this not a fundamental right for every Christian? We cannot be so intrinsically tied to each other for each other’s sake, but for a glorious union within the hypostatic union. Married persons should attempt to delve deeply into this mystery, though not of man, but of God only. We are his creation, and He loves us as his people. We are his possession and treasure.

Through a personal encounter with the hypostatic union of Christ in a marriage based on holiness and trust, love and mercy, we may surrender to such beautiful graces. Christ loves to grant graces to worthy souls. He has from the beginning.

If God the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit are of a hypostasis nature, and through the Incarnation God became man (fully human), why would his purpose not be to share this glorious encounter with his creation of man and woman with their earthly vocation as lay persons? Persons created by his very breath?

As Christopher West describes “the determination of John Paul II’s refusal to surrender the term Eros to the distortion of lust,” John Paul II “creatively rehabilitates Eros by appealing to Plato’s philosophy” that Eros means “the interior force that attracts man to the true, good and beautiful.” West goes on further to explain, “if we would open our hearts to the deeper meaning of Christ’s words […] the way opens toward what Christ expressed on the Sermon of the Mount” as the Pope believe[d] that people often see Christ words about lust merely as a prohibition against Eros without trying to discover “the truly deep and essential values” that this prohibition covers and ensures (see TOB 47:6). West states,” If we would open our hearts to the deeper meaning of Christ’s words, we would find that Christ desires to liberate us to experience the true meaning of Eros” (TOBE pp. 243).

Through personal witness my discovery was just this, liberating in the context of receiving this very special grace through a Covenant of Love from God and a Purely, Divine, Spiritual Ecstasy.

I will be writing deeper into this mystery upon my site. I am asking for comments, advice, suggestions, and or personal experience to collaborate for my upcoming book. Your valued assistance is with deep gratitude. Any questions, please send them my way.
