God has given guide lines for successful living to humanity in all aspects of life because He knew our frailties before the beginning of time, even JESUS CHRIST in the flesh confirmed this by asking for …..This CUP to be taken from Him�, but soon afterwards He asked ONLY for God’s will to be done! (The issue of His death at the cross of CALVARY).
Our world of today manifests daily very wicked and mysterious acts especially concerning marriages
Marriages in the church and of believers of God's word are not left out where leaders in churches and even pastors quickly divorce and even justify it
Many could not continue to suffer long because it obviously was a wrong union in the first place
The devil is the master planner and a very wicked task master; many are suffering in silence in unholy, impure and unhappy unions
Some truly want to obey God and HATE divorce but it does not take away the daily pain they have to ENDURE to do so
I once heard someone say that marriage is not to be ENDURED but to be ENJOYED!
What does the Bible say? The word of God states that:
It is not good for THE man to be alone ,Genesis 2:18-22.
For this reason shall a man leave his father and his mother.....and the TWO shall become ONE flesh
We should not be unequally yoked
The marriage bed should not be defiled
A good union in Marriage leads to:
Strength in all ways
Prosperity in every area of life
A good home and godly children
A powerful prayerful and happy CHURCH and people
Peace of mind and contentment individually and corporately
Godly sexual coming-together
Greatly functional children (unlike the dysfunction that is witnessed today from land to land and country to country)....where Children act like they are totally possessed!
A child of God who gets married to a child of the devil automatically has the devil as an in-law and of course, this one hates a HOLY union and also knows that when there is peace in the family; it results to a POWERFUL spiritual union
It is not good for the man to be alone, a real home (not a HOUSE) is formed where the father and the mother are present to take their responsibilities according to God’s laid down guide-lines and it is the foundation of a strong people and NATION
Unfortunately, the truth of this matter is that the devil has been successful thus far in his devious manipulations of marital arrangements; instituting WRONG unions to derail and to confuse humanity and OBVIOUSLY, people today are undoubtedly CONFUSED!
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
There is God’s presence like in the time of Abraham and Adam where TWO truly become ONE
A good marriage and godly sex leads to peace of mind
When each person comes with expectations , which of course is natural in any human relationship THE big but is, each one is totally different from the other, THIS ONLY LEADS TO A VERY PROBLEMATIC AND TURBULENT UNION!
God is right you know, He knew our tomorrow from yesterday and gave wisdom words in His Bible for our daily living to enjoy –paradise- on -earth, but..
Satan is passionate in his hatred of marriage for all the listed reasons and much more!
Of course the devil is very well aware!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
