Hebrews 13:4 (New International Version, ©2010)
4 Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.
Because of the fallen nature that we are all born into, it is inherent in each of us to want to have things done our way. The mantra of modern man resounds “MY WAY” and people are determined to do just that.
In “The Book of Wisdom” there are two proverbs in which the same “Truth” is repeated:
There is a way which seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death.
There is a way that seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death.
I personally believe that we should take extra care to heed anything that is repeated more than once in God’s Word.
I’ve no doubt that I’ll be given a good lambasting for this post, because it supports upholding marriage between a man and a woman.
The wisdom of the world is directly opposed to God and His Word, so whenever a Believer dares to stand up and speak the Truth in Righteousness….he or should should expect confrontation.
I want what Our Father in Heaven, Yahweh wants….and that is for all to receive Eternal Life through Yeshua/Jesus Christ. I want what our Father Yahweh wants….that men & women who are blinded by the darkness of this world to see; for those who are captive to sin to be made free in Yeshua/Jesus Christ; for men & women to live and walk in Truth and righteousness so that God can reveal Himself to them.
Marriage is a Holy Blood Covenant that God ordained for man and woman. It isn’t just about the love that we feel or even spoken vows of commitment that is made between the husband and wife….it is about the Blood Covenant that is created during the consummation of the marriage during intercourse….which by definition is penetration by a man into a woman. When this act occurs between a man and woman who is a virgin, the hymen is broken or “tearing of the veil” so to speak and blood is shed and this is the how the Marriage Covenant is created….this is how God sees marriage; Oh if we could only know the mind of God….it is so unlike what we think or see.
But man has always, in his unregenerated state, strove against God and His Word and His Wisdom. Abba Father….forgive them for they know not what they do.
Father Yahweh, I pray in earnest for the people in this world who have set themselves against your Son Yeshua, against your Commands & Laws, against your Truth and Rigtheousness because they don’t know you. They don’t know that you are Holy and Righteous; they don’t know that you are Love but also God of Judgment & Wrath; they don’t know that the time of judgment is coming….SOON….and that every man will be judged. Lord truly these people are blinded by the god of this world Satan and sudden destruction will come upon them on that day of Judgment and Wrath when Yeshua comes from the Heavens with a Shout!
Father I pray for men and women who are called by your name to go forth boldly and unafraid, with no thought for their own lives proclaiming Truth, Salvation and Glory in the Name of Yeshua HaMashiach…..that the souls of men might be rescued! Amen.
