MARRIAGE UNION.

CHRIST MOST BELOVED:
A GOOD FOUNDATION OF GOD FEARING FAMILY BEGINS WITH THE HEART OF OBEDIENT TO GOD.
EPHESIANS, 5:-21-25 “SUBMIT YOURSELVES ONE TO ANOTHER IN THE FEAR OF GOD.”
THE GUIDE LINES HAVE BEEN LAID, FOLLOWING IT SHOULD NOT BE A PROBLEM FOR THOSE WHO WANT GOD TO BLESS THEIR MARRIAGE UNION.
BUT OBEDIENCE HAS BEEN THE PROBLEM OF MANKIND EVER SINCE THE DAYS OF ADAM.
FOR GOD TO BLESS OUR MARRIAGE, WE MUST BE FAITHFUL AND OBEDIENT.
IT IS ALARMING AND DISHEARTENING TO SEE THE RISE IN PERCENTAGE OF SINGLE MOTHERS AMONG US CHRISTIANS.
EXCEPT FOR THE DEATH OF THE HUSBAND, THERE IS NO VERSE OF ANY CHAPTER IN THE HOLY BIBLE THAT SUPPORT ONCE A MARRIED WOMAN TO BE SINGLE.
MARK, 10:-12 “AND IF A WOMAN SHALL PUT AWAY HER HUSBAND, AND MARRIED TO ANOTHER, SHE COMMITTED ADULTERY.”
MATTHEW, 19:-9 “AND I SAY UNTO YOU, WHOSOEVER SHALL PUT AWAY HIS WIFE, EXCEPT IT BE FOR FORNICATION, AND SHALL MARRY ANOTHER, COMMITS ADULTERY. AND WHOEVER MARRIES HER WHO IS PUT AWAY DOES COMMITS ADULTERY.”
IF WE ARE TO TAKE THE WORD OF GOD SERIOUS: BOTH THE HUSBAND AND WIFE AND ALSO THE CHILDREN: HAVE THEIR RESPECTIVE ROLES CLEARLY SPELLED OUT.
FIRST: THE WIFE, EPHESIANS, 5:-22 “WIVES, SUBMIT YOURSELVES UNTO YOUR OWN HUSBANDS, AS UNTO THE LORD.”
ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD, IF OUT OF STUBBORNNESS, A WOMAN REFUSED TO SUBMIT HERSELF TO THE AUTHORITY OF HER HUSBAND; SHE HAS FAILED TO SUBMIT TO THE WILL OF GOD. FOR AS THE HUSBAND IS HEAD OF THE WIFE, EVEN AS CHRIST IS THE HEAD OF THE CHURCH.
NOW THE HUSBANDS: EPHESIANS, 5:-25 “HUSBANDS LOVE YOUR WIVES, EVEN AS CHRIST ALSO LOVED THE CHURCH.”
CHRIST LOVED THE CHURCH TO THE POINT OF GIVING UP HIS LIFE FOR THE CHURCH.
IF A MAN FAILED TO LOVE HIS WIFE, HE HATES HIS OWN SOUL; HE IS WORSE THAN INFIDEL.
HENCE A MAN CHOOSES TO MARRY A WOMAN THEY BECOME ONE.
NOW THE CHILDREN: EPHESIANS, 6:-1-3 “CHILDREN, OBEY YOUR PARENTS IN THE LORD; FOR THIS IS RIGHT. HONOR THY FATHER AND MOTHER, WHICH IS THE FIRST COMMANDMENT WITH PROMISE. THAT IT MAY BE WELL WITH THEE AND THOU MAYEST LIVE LONG ON EARTH.”
“IF WE JUDGE OURSELVES RIGHTLY, WE WOULD NOT BE JUDGED” (1 CORINTHIANS, 11:-31)
WE DO NOT BOTHER TO ASK GOD FOR DIRECTION WHEN TAKING MARRIAGE DECISIONS; BUT QUICK TO BLAME GOD FOR OUR OWN MISTAKES WHEN THINGS FALL APART.
TWO ADULTS LIVING TOGETHER AS BOYFRIEND AND GIRL FRIEND IS FORNICATION.
TO INTENTIONALLY IGNORE THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, IS SAYING IN OUR HEARTS, THERE IS NO GOD. (PSALM,14:-1)
IN CONCLUSION: WE HAVE TO COME TO THE CROSS OF CHRIST AND BEG FOR FORGIVENESS.
1 JOHN, 1-9 “IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS, HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS, AND TO CLEANSE US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.”
NOW UNTO HIM THAT IS ABLE TO KEEP US FROM FALLING, AND TO PRESENT US FAULTLESS BEFORE THE PRESENCE OF HIS GLORY WITH EXCEEDING JOY, TO THE ONLY WISE GOD OUR SAVIOR, BE GLORY AND MAJESTY, DOMINION AND POWER, BOTH NOW AND EVER. AMEN.
