The Virginal Unity
by Jacob Boehme

"All the teachings of Christ have no other object than to show us how we may re-ascend to our virginal unity with him . . . . There is ever a strife over man’s image; the devil and hell say, ‘It is mine, by right of nature; it is generated out of my root.’ The spirit of this world says, ‘It is mine, I give it life, nourishment, and bring it up, and give to it my power and wonders.’ The kingdom of God says, ‘I have set my heart upon it; I have regenerated it; I sought and found it; it is mine. It is now in my kingdom, and it must reveal my wonders!’ And the poor soul of man is in continual warfare.

"O man, when the devil seeks to hinder thee, set thyself against him; oppose him strongly! Thou hast, in Christ, far greater power than he! Take all thy sins and throw them at the devil, and say, ‘Thou art the cause of them all! I take the mercy of God, the death of Christ, to myself! Therein will I roll myself’ . . . For the last Adam was the Offering and the Liberator to set thee free!
