“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Gen. 1:26-28 (KJV)
God bless you for following with us in this discussion. Please read the above scripture again and let us consider a few specific instructions as may be noticed therein. Any marriage that will prosper must be the one where it is a male and a female that is involved. This is very important – a marriage that will prosper is a contractual agreement between a male and a female. The scripture is emphatic about the fact that two may only work together if they agree – Amos 3:3.
Please note and this is also very important, the two must not just be a male and a female, they must agree to remain so as long as the marriage lasts. This order is not subject to anything, like availability of money, good or bad health, educational qualification, social status, environmental factors, societal opinions, new findings and discoveries, as the case may be. Any attempt to change the order may spell doom for any marriage.
It is unfortunate that many get into the marriage institution without understanding this truth and so they continuously struggle with the wisdom that created it. There are a few who understand this before they get into the institution, but as they go in the journey, they just think this order is not proper, because things are changing, the world system is dictating something different, what they see around is not supporting that position any longer and so they consider it ‘old school’.
What some of such individuals does not understand is that, most proponents of the reverse of this order were never there when God was creating the institution and they do not bother to sit with Him to ask why He made it so, He possibly would have explained to them. Check Matthew 19, the Jew came to the Lord Jesus Christ to tell Him that Moses permitted them to do certain things with their marriages and the Lord said it was not so from the beginning. Am afraid, that many of our fellow pilgrims will get to heaven to be confronted with the question; who gave you this template to work with in your marriage? They will be surprise to find out that the people who gave them the template will not even be there to defend that position. Jesus told the Jews of His time that, it was for the hardness of their hearts that Moses gave them something different. Are you sure your own mind is not indicting something different from what The Lord has said?
The makeup of the male is different from that of the female in marriage. Outside of the marriage institution, they are equal and the same. For example if a man and a woman in marriage are medical doctors, they have received the same trainings with the same experiences, it is even possible that the woman is better than the man on the job, but when they get home they are not the same. There is the need for both husband and wife to understand this. It is the reason a marriage between persons of same sex will never work or fulfill God’s purpose. I can tell you authoritatively that same sex marriage will fail woefully, it’s a matter of time. This is because it is against God’s will. Those who are involved with transgender will also fail beyond repairs, because a man who went through surgery and has been transformed into a woman can never be a woman. It is not enough to pump female hormones into his system. To make him a woman you must work on his genetic makeup and completely change his brain to make him a proper woman. Another feat that must be achieved is that, womb, fallopian tubes and ovaries must be created in him. Can you see that transgenders are deceived and they are deceivers too?
So much has been added to and removed from what God created as the institution of marriage, so much, that even believers are confused. But I pray for you that God will give you the required understanding to decipher the deceit of the enemy and help you fulfill God’s purpose in your marriage. I pray that whatever the enemy/world has done in your marriage is destroyed in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. It is your season of turning point.
In our next discussion we shall look at peculiarities of these two creatures of God that must be involved in any marriage to make it prosper as God destined it. Please don’t miss it. For counsel you may call 08027627838/08077128453
