GOD Is The Author And Creator of MARRIAGE! ~ Part 1 ~

GOD Is The Author And Creator of MARRIAGE

Part 1

This 21st century has ushered in some strange beliefs and alternatives. There are many who seek to redefine Marriage. They want to change the traditional established institution that has been a foundational principle since the beginning of time! This will cause a continuing downshift in the overall moral fiber of our country…



But is that really okay? Now just about anything goes… Pandora’s Box has lost its lid! What is happening to MARRIAGE as we know it?



God is the Author and Creator of marriage! His original design for marriage has not changed. He designed marriage for one man and one woman! There has been a gradually desensitization process ruminating in the background to encourage others to accept alternative lifestyles. God has given us the right to choose but we must be aware that there are consequences for our choices!



I find it quite interesting that many are taking advantage of His Grace and infringing on His exclusive rights as the Originator, Author and Creator of marriage. They are in fact pleasurizing His “work of art by trying to paint a different picture over the canvas of His original! His “Masterpiece” can never be duplicated or altered by man no matter how hard he tries. They are erroneously attempting to make marriage whatever the protestors want it to be! God has not or will not relinquish that authority to anyone!



God never intended for marriage to be a relationship reduced to whatever your sexual preferences are... If that had been the case, how would mankind ever be able to reproduce? Marriage goes so much deeper than our little finite minds can conceive. In fact two become one! He has designed man and woman in such a marvelous way they fit together sort of like a hand placed within a sculpted custom designed glove! His original couple was created as one unit! In His own brilliant omniscient and miraculous way He took Eve out of Adam!



Did you know; God does not sanction any sex outside the boundaries of marriage?



Adam the first man was complete but without a suitable helper? “So God caused the man to fall asleep; and while he was sleeping, He took one of the man’s ribs and closed up the place of flesh. Then the Lord made a woman from the rib He had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.



The man said; this is now bone of my bone s and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman for she was taken out of man…” For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be united with his wife and they will become one flesh. The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.” Genesis 2. How wonderfully amazing!



Why would anyone want to change something so beautifully designed? If you want to do something else… Go right ahead! But, why not just call it what it is, or simply call it something else? No one would dare allow a work of Picasso, Renoir, Monet, Klee, Chagall, or Da Vinci’s work of art to be altered in any way! Or change the title; Do they merit more respect?



God’s original design for marriage merits respect as well! For those of you who are in favor of and want to do something else and deviate from God’s design; or have same sex relationships, please call it what it is “same sex relationships!” Or an “open lease relationship” or whatever you like… I believe it is a matter of pride! Is it because you need to feel better about what you are doing? Marriage has already been defined by God! So please; don’t tamper with His Masterpiece!



We use a ruler to measure distance between points. If something does not measure up do we change the ruler? If we did then there would be nothing to measure against precisely. The Word of God is what we as believers measure our lives with. It is how we determine sin? When we allow man to redefine what sin is in the process we lose something that is intangibly precious, especially when we attempt to tamper with the natural laws that He created to protect us… Marriage is one of those laws it is the relationship rule by which we determine healthy sexual boundaries…



There is much spiritual warfare to divide marriages and families! This is really a war of the flesh… The lust of the eyes… What man sees he wants and covets at any cost even to the point he seeks to redefine what marriage means... Marriages are churning over like butter! After all no one is perfect! Instant gratification is becoming the chosen path. If you want to be a part of this movement with the majority get on board! But you are required to not acknowledge the Scriptures! Please do not quiet the Voice of the Lord within you… Please do not let ANYONE desensitize your conscience to God’s Word! To be a follower of Christ means we follow His Word! Jesus Christ becomes our personal Savior in order to save us from the power of sin reigning in our lives. We do not have the right or authority to change it… If you do, you may not see the immediate consequences but there definitely will be some!



Jesus did not leave us unprepared for these current times. He has told us when you stand for His Word what to expect. As a matter of fact he warned us what would happen: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines, and pestilence, in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

But, before all of this, they will lay hands and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on the account of my name. This will result in being witnesses to them. But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. You will be betrayed by parents, brothers, relatives, and friends and they will put some of you to death. ALL men will hate you because of ME. But not a hair of your head will perish. By standing firm you will gain life…” St. Luke 21. HELLO! That time is NOW!

Have some of your friends and relatives begun to have selective memories? Have they forgotten what you have always stood for? Have they allowed others to scandalize your name in order to save face. Have they forgotten how much you did for them and how little they have done for you? GOD WILL fight your battles! If you are truly a believer it is during these times you must “STAND” on the Word of God! Even if it means being misunderstood!

WAIT! Look back just a few years ago…! Stay withme a moment, let’s not live in denial… What was considered unspeakable is now acceptable as a lifestyle? It is dangerous to remove or try to adjust the moral boundaries in order to conform to the desires of the flesh! This is the evident result of one conforming to peer pressure… This culture in general wants to legalize sexual immorality so badly; they will do whatever the masses demand! Or is it that one idolizes having sex outside of marriage to the degree you want to sanction it by destroying marriage as we know it traditionally? What will be next? Perhaps lowering the age of consensual sex? Sex with …. LORD HELP!

What is really going on here is; there is a deep inner longing to belong. To connect with someone or something so deeply that many are compulsively trying to find a way to fulfill that longing. They crave love and acceptance to the degree they will do whatever is necessary to fill that void. Many simply make the choice to compartmentalize their lives. They are one way at work, one way at worship and another way at home! They will change partners, drop values, compromise principles, form friendships, join groups do whatever it takes in order to avoid looking inwardly to acknowledge the void, rather than looking to the Lord for an answer. Have you noticed that there is a push for more women to gather in retreats and more men to gather in retreats separately; and now more than ever the divorce rate is still continuing to steadily climb? Something is wrong with this picture...GOD is OMNISCIENT HE sees everything and everyone, everywhere! Absolutely NOTHING get by HIM!



Many are opting for secular ways to resolve their inner conflict and negate the “work of the Holy Spirit! Fewer want to travel on the “Narrow Road!” God can heal any hurt you have! Perhaps we should just overlook all the Scriptures from His Word concerning marriage and relationships and …

I realize that the world is very liberal in its thinking. That it says it’s okay “we are not hurting anyone; go for it!” Not so! That was then and this is now! This is a new day… Now the Church is being charged by society as being unloving when it does not support “same sex” relationships! We are now on the road to becoming censored... The script has been flipped… We have been here before! I also realize that many within God’s Church are beginning to embrace the world’s view. Many compromise the Lord’s Word to be accepted by the world… As believers it is important that we present the TRUTH of God’s Word even if it means being persecuted! No matter who, what or when, God does not change His principles to suit the popular trends for anyone who elects to walk contrary to His Word. This quenches His Spirit within you! It allows the flesh to have its way... This is walking in disobedience to the WORD of GOD! God has said that you will not inherit HIS kingdom!



So I say, live by the spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with one another, so that you do not do what you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law! The acts of the sinful nature are obvious; Sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery, idolatry and witchcraft, hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, envy, drunkenness, and orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this WILL NOT inherit the kingdom of GOD! Galatians 5. Take some time and seriously ponder and digest this! It is between you and God! “He that has and ear let Him hear!” Think about what you just read! Please camp here a moment…

God is so powerful, loving, gracious and kind yet He allows us the freedom to choose! But that does not mean that we have His Blessing upon the choice! God does not contradict His WORD! We must not mishandle His Word! “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman need not be ashamed and who correctly handles the Word of TRUTH…” I Timothy 2. We are instructed not to wander from the truth! Yet, mankind has continued to do so from the beginning of time! The Bible astutely records the consequences...

Is it that you choose to totally disregard what God says in order to justify your desire to do what is contrary to His Word? What is so interesting it is cloaked as “unconditional love or acceptance?”

Sexual impurity is rampart! There are more sexual diseases now than ever before… Natural catastrophies are happening all over the world... GOD is speaking! Do we now just omit sexual integrity? Because many don’t like what God has ordained now you want to change it to what the world values? Or perhaps you never really knew how adamant God is about this… Have you noticed this is consistently condemned in the Scriptures? But that doesn’t really matter? Sexual sin pertains to both heterosexuals and homosexual oriientation! It boggles my mind how it has become acceptable “fair game” to alter what is sacred …

Please don’t go there; This is not about hate. This is about our heavenly Father has said Don’t and many are saying Ahaaa! Go right ahead if you so please… Please don’t “Mock GOD!” Perhaps the next step will be to remove gender references from the Bible? What is our written basis for TRUTH!

Here in California you can vote and then you can get a judge who is willing to overturn what has already been voted upon by millions of people! Is this what we call justice? By the way this is not at all the same as civil rights or racial discrimination…

I would love to have a beautiful marriage. I love your descripton of a beautiful marriage. I once imagined getting married (once) to a man whom I know...I never dreamed of it as a girl like some do with the material things like cakes and plans, but I long for it and kids.

I feel God is preparing me for it as He is other things.

Deborah, you have masterfully described what marriage is and is not! I keep thinking about what you said...."God never intended for marriage to be a relationship reduced to whatever your sexual preferences are... If that had been the case, how would mankind ever be able to reproduce?" So true! Deborah,the futher we get from His Word the deeper we get into self-destructive ways.

DeBorrah,

AMEN & AMEN & AMEN! Praise the Lord for this wonderful hub!

“God is the Author and Creator of marriage! His original design for marriage has not changed. He designed marriage for one man and one woman! There has been a gradually desensitization process ruminating in the background to encourage others to accept alternative lifestyles. God has given us the right to choose but we must be aware that there are consequences for our choices!” AMEN & AMEN & AMEN!

When God said that it was not good for man to be alone, He did not create another man. He created man and woman and commanded that they cleave to each other as one flesh. They were also to be the instruments of populating the world. Thus, marriage and the conception of children are lifted up above blind instinct and endowed with sacredness.

Man has often distorted God’s word to accommodate his own desires and then uses His “love” to justify and rationalize behaviors he/she knows is unacceptable in God’s sight. To my mind, the greatest of all deceptions is self-deception.

Thank you for this honest look at the state of marriage today. May it give all readers reason to pause and reflect on our own sexual behaviors to assess whether or not it is consistent with the Word of God.

Awesome, voted up and shared!!

Love, peace and joy in Him,

Forever His,

DeBorrah, This is a brilliant and perfectly stated message of God's absolute TRUTH on the matter. No one could have written about this heated subject matter so well, as you have here!

Man is indeed trying to rewrite God law into what "feels" right to them. The moral decay of our corrupt world is just foul enough to oblige the loudest voices in favor of this abhorrent behavior.

God's true and faithful people love what God loves, and Hates what God hates. God is quite clear on His stand, and so should we be!

Thank you for this awesome hub of TRUTH on a highly-charged issue! You have handled it with boldness and grace!

A neighbor's 4 year old daughter came home from school and asked her dad about men getting married because it was taught in school - to 4 year olds.

Dad was angry and went to the school because he said there has never been a discussion in the same school about women and men getting married and why not. There was no answer to this. As is typical in our educational system, we teach with no balance, no common sense, not even accuracy, just blah, blah, blah.

Where I draw the line and get real ugly is when someone tells me I must fight this battle because this issue is the same as chattel slavery and racial discrimination - even though there has never been any reciprocity - or even acknowledgment for fighting the civil rights battles in the first place. It is never okay to diminish me for your benefit.

Always good to catch up with you.

Rev Lady, PRAISE GOD! I see we are on one accord here! “When God said that it was not good for man to be alone, He did not create another man. He created man and woman and commanded that they cleave to each other as one flesh. They were also to be the instruments of populating the world. Thus, marriage and the conception of children are lifted up above blind instinct and endowed with sacredness.” Amen! & AMEN!! This is beautiful!

It is quite alarming that God’s marvelous and beautiful design for marriage is constantly being pushed aside. God really does know what is “BEST” for us! Afterall He created us….

You are right about “self deception” it is important that we regularly take self inventory and allow the Holy Spirit to convict us of any sin. Sin is what separates us from God! God’s Word is not to be compromised to suit personal preferences… I agree each of us must look at “our own sexual behaviors to assess whether or not it is consistent with the Word of God.” Amen & Amen!

Thank you for sharing your wise insight! This will further help to encourage and shed Light on the importance of keeping in mind God’s principles for MARRIAGE!

Thank you as always for presenting a godly perspective! In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings! To GOD Be The GLORY!

BK Creative, Thank you for sharing this! It is interesting how God’s design for marriage is continually being pushed to the backburner. How is it that a 4 year old child can be taught about same sex relationships before Marriage? You are right there is NO balance! Imagine how confusing this can be… Unless you explain how God created man and woman for marriage and man has manufactured same sex relationship because they wanted to do something totally different…

“It is never okay to diminish me for your benefit.“ I hear you! It is an insult to say that this is the same as slavery and racial discrimination, absolutely appalling! It is a need to idolize created beings and diminish the AUTHORITY of GOD! It is really a discrimination against God’s design for MARRIAGE! Tell GOD'S TRUTH and shame the devil…..

Thank you for sharing your most appreciated comments! In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

Deborrah,

Great Hub, excellent way to clarify in the name of the Lord. More Christians need to read this as it is our own flock that is beginning to flounder on such a cut and dry subject. Recently I came across a couple of hubs that were sanctioning the acts of same sex relationships in order to show unconditional love of children. I was a gasp, we can unconditionally love our children but not their false actions against the doctrines and laws set forth by God. We are in troubling times no doubt. It’s nice to read a refreshing voice such as yours.

God Bless.

"Please do not let ANYONE desensitize your conscience to God’s Word! To be a follower of Christ means we follow His Word!"

Amen DeBorrah! Desensitizing is really just another way of saying people need to accept temptations as good things. Galatians 5:19 starts by saying the first two works of the flesh are adultery and fornication. And I so agree with your closing statement. The fact that so many are willing to attach the homosexual agenda to civil rights and racial discrimination cases is an atrocity of spirit. In the end, so much of the political stances people take are rooted solely in generating constituents, votes and money - and not necessarily in that order. Marriage is a sacred union of likeminded believers creating children to further the cause of their Creator - peace and harmony, love and kindness, grace and mercy. Great hub. Peace.

DeBorrah - A marvelous and well done hub on marriage. I think children can become so confused about this subject, with all the lunacy going on in today's world. As parents and providers, we have a responsibility to teach Gods word and the importance of following it. Marriage is indeed sacred. Thank you.

Jason R. Manning, Thank YOU! I think that it is important that we present the TRUTH of God’s Word! Marriage as we know it is being pushed to the background because so many opt for the latest alternatives! I think it is crucial that we make it a priority to keep it on the front lines.

We are most definitely living in some interesting times… How mind boggling that someone would use same sex relationships as an example of unconditional love! What does that say about GOD who is Love yet does not condone it? “we can unconditionally love our children but not their false actions against the doctrines and laws set forth by God. We are in troubling times no doubt.” AMEN!

Thank you for stopping by to share your wise insight! In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

A M Werner, Amen! It is getting quite interesting! We who believe and subscribe to Marriage God's way are becoming a growing minority!

My question is what do we do with all the Scriptures in regards to Marriage? If we ignore those how much more of the Word will be compromised as well? On one hand it is frightening; yet on the other hand it just shows the Word of God is fulfilling itself!

“Therefore God gave them over to the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the TRUTH of GOD for a lie and worshipped and served the created things rather than the Creator – who is forever praised. AMEN! Because of this God gave them over to their shameful lusts. Even the women exchanged natural relations for the unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned the natural relations…” Romans 1 This scripture is pretty self explanatory!

What does it mean to be a believer and what and who do we believe?

You are so right it is an atrocity to try to equate same sex relationships to “civil rights and racial discrimination cases!" Yes!!! “Marriage is sacred!”

Thank you as always for sharing your most inspiring and thought provoking commentary! In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings! GOD BLESS YOU & YOURS!

Praise God for His precious gift of life and the continued NEW LIFE we have in Him through eternity!

God created us with volition, the right to choose for ourselves the way in which we go. The world capitalizing on volition and how we in America have personal freedom to do what we want, (unlike middle east where people are killed for CHOOSING to be homosexual), have declared that whatever a person decides is alright. It refuses to think in terms of right and wrong, just personal freedom and whether or not someone is hurt or harmed or their personal freedom impinged. The problem is that God DOES think in terms of right and wrong and says even though we are given the right to choose wrong, it still IS wrong. Homosexuality and alternate lifestyles that go against God's written word are wrong. They are sin. Christians must stand firm on the word despite any pressure that comes against us to conform. We love the sinner but hate the sin. We cling to what is right and abhor what is wrong. We flee the very appearance of evil. I know a lot of folks that are gay and they know I don't hate them but at the same time they know what I feel about their choices as well. This is a brave courageous hub and I applaud it sister DeB.


DeBorrah K. Ogans profile image

DeBorrah K. Ogans 6 years ago Author

GOD BLESS YOU! What you say is true! God is so gracious that He allows us all the freedom to choose!... But it is important that we are aware of the consequences for those choices. We are living in some interesting times when those of us who want to preserve the beauty of MARRIAGE GOD’S WAY are against opposition from believers as well as unbelievers! As you so well stated: "Christians must stand firm on the word despite any pressure that comes against us to conform. We love the sinner but hate the sin. We cling to what is right and abhor what is wrong. We flee the very appearance of evil…” AMEN! & AMEN!!

Thank you for sharing your wise insight! This will also help to further minister and encourage others to "STAND" on GOD'S WORD! Your comments are always welcomed and appreciated! Thank you Bob! In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

marriage as never changed

a man can still have more then one wife: genesis 4:19,samuel 12.8,

also you have been tagged under "gender" in stumble so you going to end up with people looking for some genderqueer things have fun.


DeBorrah K. Ogans profile image

DeBorrah K. Ogans 5 years ago Author

Superdyke, I agree marriage has not changed...! SO keep in mind; Lamech, marrying two women took place after Cain killed Abel and men had to begun to do what “was right in their own eyes...” Nowhere do you see in the Bible that Adam married two wives! God’s design for marriage was Adam & Eve; one man and one woman! and YES! HIS original design has not changed! Man continues to do his/her own thing….
