Twin Souls in Biblical Perspective
You might have wondered how “twin souls” idea was developed. It is said that twin soul is a New Age concept that points out that love is diluted these days and twin souls serve as a “messenger”, as there is too much confusion about love already and it has to be restored (This was quoted from Wikipedia but the link is gone.). To some, a twin flame relationship is not a New Age invention. Dr. Helen Demetriou has claimed to have patterns of an divine love such as Osiris and Isis, and Inanna and Marduk, and the list goes on.” In the Chapter 2 of Our Lives Are Connected, the origin or the legend of the twin souls is revealed.
Unbiblical Term… But
Twin souls is not a biblical term but our purpose is to signify the biblical context, “the two are united as one”. Twin souls are known as two souls, but in spirit they are one, an ideology that signifies marriage and spiritual union. The couple, “Adam and Eve” is one best example, and not only that they were one in spirit, they were also one in body according to the Jewish Midrash. When Eve was taken out of Adam’s body, it was one of way of “splitting” them into two bodies as two whole individuals.
Being one with another in spirit is a fundamental teaching of the Bible that points to a relationship between Christ and His Church or a true Christian’s spiritual commitment to Christ. In Matthew 25 we find a parable about 10 virgins preparing to meet the bridegroom. A true twin soul is a very exclusive relationship that promotes faithfulness. We can’t be one with all or with the majority because there has to have “the one”.
IS THERE MARRIAGE IN HEAVEN? We have to understand that marriage here on earth is a precursor of spiritual unions in the next life. It’s a biggest blessing to find an earthly marriage that serves as sanctification that walks you through to reach your destiny or eternal reward. Marriage here on earth is sullied and we can’t allow that to corrupt our identity as well in a way that blinds us from recognizing a true bond that awaits us to find. Twin soul is not a precursor of an earthly marriage, it is a precursor of a spiritual marriage brought forth to this earthly world.
With the book, “Our Lives Are Connected, you’d be surprised to learn some Bible characters and incidents that characterize the nature of “twin souls”.
Continual change is certain in every life, even in the smallest increments, but one truth remains eternal for us all. In God’s eyes we are unique; in God’s eyes we are the same. It is the uniqueness that sets us apart, and the similarities that bind us together. – Mark W. Moore, Screenwriter
