    Re Thomason 's comment on Yshua during the millennial reign the passage clearly, by David refers to David 's wife, and though David is a foreshadow and type of Messiah he is not the messiah. A type is not the thing itself. When Messiah reigns with a rod of iron during the Millennium, he will not be less than he was in his earthly ministry. Recall the NT passage which discusses marriage and remarriage in heaven where Jesus, Yshua remarks that in Heaven we are not given in marriage the earthly institutions dissolve in the presence of God, who is Spirit. Recent movies and myths like to bring God 'down to size ' by attributing Messiah with human characteristics of an earthy sort such as being in love with Mary Magdalen ,etc. which are foolish and blasphemous. The all knowing, all loving, ever present and ever powerful God has no need of a wife, and Yshua his Messiah is one with Him, one in Him, and "the Word was with God and was God. " The passage of a mortal wife dressed in the gold of Ophir at best typifies the Messiah and his bride, Israel, the congregation of God.
