One Flesh

“For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.” Genesis 2:24-25

Many see the one flesh as sex, but is there a more literal meaning? Yes. Children. Kids are the literal fusing of man and woman into an embryo that matures into a full person.

“For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church.” Ephesians 5:31-32

So then, if Jesus is to marry the church in heaven, will their one flesh also be children? What kind of children? Could heavenly parents have earthly children? Why does Revelation say: “And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.” Revelation 21:2
