God Is The Author And Creator Of MARRIAGE ~ Part 2 ~

 

GOD Is The Author And CREATOR of MARRIAGE

Part 2

 

God is Love!” He is our Creator! He definitely is beyond qualified and knows what is best for the man and woman who He created. He has so splendidly and miraculously created us that we can reproduce when we are joined together! Again, this is not the case with “same sex relationships!” This is not about being legalistic… As Christians we are not supposed to embrace sin of any sort. Sin automatically separates us from God! We are supposed to remain steadfast to God’s standards and principles.

 

Do as you please; but if you want to redefine marriage or change the rules you have no scriptural support to do so! Why not wait unto Jesus returns and ask Him? As you continue to do your own thing in the meantime be willing to take the consequences. It’s sort of like when your parent tells you not to do something and you do it anyway… I am Pro “MARRIAGE” God’s Way!

 

Have we reached such a time that one can gather an overabundance of people together and decide whatever they want takes precedent over one’s right to ownership. Have we fell so short and fallen so far and become so spiritually blinded as a nation to the degree that it is okay to make what is Holy unholy? America was founded on godly principles! As we change those principles the once secure foundation shifts! Our money even says “In God we TRUST!” No wonder that there is such a deficit!

 

I suppose next we will seek to redefine more of what God has said in HIS WORD as well… Well brace yourself; get ready, there will be more natural catastrophes throughout the world…

 

If you want to have a relationship with someone of the same sex; it is your choice! But please do not destroy marriage’s original design by God the Master Designer! Take some time to study and evaluate closely what HIS Word says! Take some time and meditate on what you are reading! This is why we all need Him as Savior and Lord to save us from the power of sin reigning in our lives! We need Him to open our spiritual eyes so we can better understand what He is saying to us! Sin separates us from God! The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy…Jesus came that we might have an “abundant life!” John 10. A full life living out His principles within healthy boundaries!

 

Wherever you are or whoever you are God’s arms are open wide to you! He is the Ultimate Father who wants what is best for His children! He can heal you every where you hurt! As long as there is breath in your body it is never too late to turn to His will and way! There is nothing in your life that He is not aware of! He can fill the void in your life! He can make you whole! He our heavenly Father has provided His Holy Spirit to help us and guide us to all TRUTH! He can open your spiritual eyes! If you accept Him into your heart “His WORD will be a lamp unto your feet and a LIGHT unto your path!” He Loves you and is a merciful and forgiving GOD! Wherever you are He can help you and open your understanding!

 

There are truly some important principles for life and living in the Word of God!

 

Take some time and ponder on this Scripture: “…Moreover you shall not lie carnally with your neighbor’s wife to lie to defile yourself with her. And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire of Molech, nor shall you profane the Name of God: I am the Lord. You shall not lie with a male as a woman. It is an abomination. Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is PERVERSION!

 

Do Not defile yourself with any of these things; for by all these things the nations are defiled, which I m casting out before you. For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of iniquity upon it, and the land vomits its inhabitants. You shall keep my statues and My judgments…” Leviticus 18.This covers it all! God has given us a remedy; but some do not want to take the prescription! No wonder we have so much chaos about us in our country and all around the world. It really is important to know what God Word says!

 

God is Love! He is the quintessential essence of love! This is why He has clearly defined the boundaries of marriage! Adultery, fornication is sex outside of marriage! Same sex relationships are offensive to GOD! It is never too late to repent; Which means to change not to repeat! This is how you exercise discipline! God has a plan for each of His children… His Word is ourLife Manual” Is God your Father? Or is man your idol? Seek Him through HIS WORD! Or do you need to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? Commit to His will and His way! Walking in the flesh contrary to HIS Word separates you from God! Sin is anything that separates us from God! Since He is not into legalities He graciously allows you the freedom to choose! It is important to know in the end there will be dire consequences when you choose to go against what He says is wrong… At any moment His Son Jesus Christ could return at any time and invoke His rights. Are you ready?

 

God is the Author and Creator of MARRIAGE! His definition for marriage has not changed! I have some “GOOD NEWS” God can heal any broken life! He can make you whole! He can fill that inner vast void! Sexual sin is not a new problem. His Word is designed to protect us! As Christians we are called to healthy sexual boundaries. You are not your own! God can help you to have self control! It is a part of the Fruit of HIS SPIRIT! When you operate outside of those boundaries He has given us, you open the door for a stronghold upon your life. You have been deceived as Eve was! There are deeper issues here to consider? Do you want to be free? Sincerely confess any sin and accept God’s love and forgiveness then start anew! “Walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh!” Galatians 5. Please do not just take my word…Take some time and study His Word for yourself! Meditate on the Scriptures and see if you conscious is convicted! Pray and ask the Lord to place someone in your life who will help you be accountable! “Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things NEW.” And He said to me, Write, for these things are TRUE and FAITHFUL!

 

And He said to me “It is done” I AM Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit ALL things and I WILL be his GOD and he shall be My Son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murders, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and ALL liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” Revelation 21. He who has an ear let him or her hear!

 

Do you believe God’s Word when you read it? Or do you seek to make it fit what you want to believe? The most important relationship that you can ever have is your relationship with the Lord through Jesus Christ! It is through this relationship you are able to learn how to properly relate in all other relationships!

 

God Loves you but He wants to be first in your life! Wherever you are He can take you where you need to be! To truly learn how to LOVE you must know GOD! “GOD is LOVE!” Start today beginning to learn how to ~ “Love the LORD your God with ALL your heart and with ALL your soul and with ALL your strength and with ALL you mind…” ~ Luke 10. Trust HIM! God is the Author and Creator of MARRIAGE! To God Be The GLORY!

A Great hub Mr.s Deborrah. We all need to try to follow the ways of God. God has certain rules in his home, and his home is his castle. Heaven is God's home. If we want to live with God , then we need to do what he says if we intend to be invited into his home. God Bless you precious heart.

Hi Deborrah-God as you said is love. He made all of his children different colors, different in personality, different in so many ways including sexual preference. I respectfully disagree with you regarding those who love the same sex. God created all of us and I do not believe he would want one of his creations to lie about who they are. I am a catholic woman who loves the lord. I feel that none of us can judge another. The bible can be read in many different ways. We all interpret the bible verses in different ways. I guess to keep it simple, I just don't see how God and Love goes together with judgement on whether someone loves the opposite sex or same sex. Again Deborrah, I want you to know that I love hugpages for being a community of being open-minded to all we read. I just happen to disagree. Blessings:)

Minnetonka Twin, Yes God made us all different but He did not make us with same sexual preferences. It is not natural…. There is no medical information to substantiate this as well. It is an acquired behavior… It is a result of the world moving away from His original design… The Bible tells us how GOD made Adam and Eve. There has been a continual shift from this. It is from the Word of God we learn TRUTH. I would ask do you or have you read what the Bible says in regards to same sex? What is happening is many are choosing to embrace only part of the WORD. DO you believe the WORD of GOD?

Please read this and let me know what is your response! This is what the WORD says:

“For although they KNEW GOD, they neither glorified HIM as God nor gave thanks to HIM, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal GOD for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.

Therefore GOD GAVE THEM OVER IN 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 created things rather than the Creator who is forever-praised!”

Here is what happened because they did not listen to the Lord. But decided to do their own thing! “Because of this God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion..” Romans 1. This is what the Word of God teaches us!

Same sex relations abandon God’s natural design! This was also considered a pagan practice during Paul’s time! It is once again gaining momentum in this 21st century!

God is LOVE! Love does not mean that you make someone feel good! Love preserves and upholds the TRUTH of God’s Word! God has said what He feels about same sex relationships! Does this mean God is being judgmental.

What do you use to determine TRUTH? What is happening again today is the pressure from the masses; many are deciding to go against God’s Word and establish a pseudo righteousness apart from God…

I do not agree with you! Thank you for sharing your opinion. In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

DeBorrah,

“God is Love! He is the quintessential essence of love! This is why He has clearly defined the boundaries of marriage! Adultery, fornication is sex outside of marriage! Same sex relationships are offensive to GOD!” AMEN! AMEN!

I think one of the major hindrances to our understanding of God’s love is the tendency of man to project human ideals of love onto God. By doing so, we reduce His love to the level of His creatures, thus misrepresenting Him and distorting TRUTH.

Furthermore, Scripture clearly teaches that inherent in the quality of God’s love is a vehement wrath against sin, including sexual transgression in all its many forms as you so lucidly chronicle. To emphasize God’s love at the expense of TRUTH is to blind oneself to the hard realities of sin and evil in human existence.

This hub is a wonderful testimony to the marriage standards and Christian sexual behavior as taught by the Word of God. Thank you for sharing and all glory to God!

Love, peace and joy in Him!

Forever His,

Rev Lady, “I think one of the major hindrances to our understanding of God’s love is the tendency of man to project human ideals of love onto God. By doing so, we reduce His love to the level of His creatures, thus misrepresenting Him and distorting TRUTH.” Amen! & Amen!!

It is as though one reads His Word and says okay… Now let me love as the world says love, We are still here because the Lord LOVES us! He is giving the world time to prepare. In the meantime we are to invite others into the body of Christ> We cannot do this by compromising HIS WORD! He has provided HIS WORD as our "LIFE MANUAL!" Jesus died for the sins of the world! HE became THE WORD wrapped in sinless flesh!

GOD is LOVE! Therefore He defines LOVE!

It is amazing to see GOD’S GRACE in action as HE allows the universe time to prepare for the second coming of JESUS CHRIST! Therefore we present HIS Word knowing that He graciously allows you the freedom to choose. Otherwise we would be robots! Since the masses are choosing to go against His Word this tells me that the time of our Lord’s imminent impending arrival is fast approaching…

God’s Word is “ALIVE” and oh so powerful! We must draw closer to the Lord and compel others to do so as well! But first we must make sure that we TOO are rooted and grounded FIRMLY in HIS WORD! Lord help us!

“Be merciful to those who doubt; snatch others from the fire and SAVE them; to others show mercy, mixed with fear…” Jude. We must boldly in love, proclaim His Word and contend for the FAITH as taught to us by Jude!

Thank you as always for sharing your godly insight! In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

‘To the only God our Savior be Glory, Majesty, Power and Authority, through JESUS CHRIST our LORD, before ALL ages, NOW and FOREVERMORE! AMEN!

The danger of fixating on any one particular sin is that we miss the forrest through the trees. Is homsexuality a graver sin than gluttony? Or pride? I agree with the truth you present, I just feel that when you single something like this out on a forum such as hubpages, you run the risk of being responsible for people with a different view, or those caught up in the sin you pinpoint, to erect a wall. Homosexuality is not what keeps people from God. It is a symptom of the real problem. The real problem is we are sinners. As we sharre the love of God with the lost, walls come down. When walls come down the Spirit of God can shine His light on all sin. People will change. Turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look full at His wonderful face. THEN the things of the Earth will grow strangely dim. In the light of His glory and grace! It is in fallling in love that mountains are moved. He accepts us as we are. He completes the work He has begun. I understand why you wrote this and again I agree with your conclusions, just wanted to communicate the danger of putting the cart before the horse.

Love you Pastor.

Fred Allen, There is an enormous push to redefine MARRIAGE in this 21st century! God has already established healthy boundaries for marriage. He does not sanction any sex outside those boundaries. My point here is to encourage marriage God’s way! As I have said if one desires to have a same sex relationship go right ahead. But it is important that we not equate it to the same thing as marriage. Blurring the clearly defined boundaries that God has ordained is disrespectful to the Lord! It is important that one knows how God feels about this…

Many believers are watering down the TRUTH of God’s WORD! As believers I think it is important that we present the TRUTH of God’s Word! Bold love is courageous! Timothy tells us “Preach the WORD! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their OWN DESIRES, because they have itching ears they will heap up for themselves teachers, and they will turn their ears away from the TRUTH…”. II Timothy 4. That time is Now! Many are turning away from the TRUTH! When man justifies his desires that goes in direct conflict with what God has said is best, then we can continue to expect consequences...

For many sexual sin has become like reading the sign on the fence that says “beware of dog” yet choose to enter anyway because they are not afraid of dogs, only to be bitten and infected… As believers we have a responsibility to present the Word with the intention to promote spiritual growth in ourselves and others realizing that the Lord allows us the freedom to choose? This also means that at times we will be misunderstood!

Homosexuality is prevalent within God’s Church from the pew to the pulpit! This also serves to further encourage and confuse non believers… My concern is that many are now justifying the desires of the flesh and attempting to cloak it under the guise of “unconditional love.” This is incongruent with being a believer; or is it that we believe only the parts of the Word that makes us feel okay… As long as we are on this side of heaven we stand to be corrected by His Word! It is our “Life Manual” to instruct us in righteous living….

I think that it is most helpful to have open dialogue here on The HubPages...

Thank you for sharing your commentary is welcomed and appreciated! God Bless YOU! In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

You are so congenial! You not only accepted my comment, You responded with clarity and grace. I applaud you! It is still my belief that when we attack certain sins, we run the risk of causing those guilty of them to put up wall. It is still my belief that when we single out certain sins while being guilty of others ourselves, we cause those caught in their sin to see us as portraying ourselves as "holier than thou" trying to remove the spec from our brothers eye while ignoring the plank in our own. My focus in ministry is to ignore the symptom and treat the disease. I love you and I understand your zeal for your Fathers will. I simply feel this is how God wants ME (not necessarily you) to approach evangelism. Bless you dear sister. I will always support you.

Fred Allen, I truly believe that as long as the Lord has us on this side of Heaven it is to learn. God does not change His principles to make us feel comfortable. Sin separates us from God! Sin is a spiritual dis-ease. It is important that we openly discuss any and all that is in the Lord’s Word.

The Blood of Jesus has cleansing power! However we must first acknowledge and confess our sins. More and more there is a pressure to silence the Word of God. We are children of His Light! “This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is Light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with Him and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice truth. But if we walk in the Light as He is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST HIS SON cleanses us from ALL SIN. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we CONFESS our sins, He is FAITHFUL and just to forgive us our sins and to CLEANSE US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS. If we say we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His Word is not in us” I John 1.

This is what is so beautiful about the Lord! He has told us what is wrong and He also gives us a remedy to be healed, cleansed and set Free! God is Holy and we cannot have a proper relationship with Him unless we continually confess and address any sin. We ALL are forever becoming we never arrive… God sees all of us individually and He is not a respecter of persons. We ALL must be washed by the precious blood of Jesus! Jesus PAID the penalty for our sins. This is the great equalizer! This is why it is so important to know and share ALL His Word!

The sexual sins have become rampart… what has happened cannot be changed but anyone can start anew from wherever they are! It is because for so long the Scriptures in regards to sexual sins are often overlooked that we have entered into an era that God’s Design for Marriage is under attack to the degree that many want to redefine it… Therefore I acknowledge Him as Author and Creator of MARRIAGE!

It is my prayer that the Lord directs you as you do the work of an evangelist! God Bless you in your efforts to do His will. I Know as you trust Him He will continue to direct your path…Thank God for HIS Holy Spirit!

Another excellent hub from you DeBOrrah K. Ogans. I admire your courage in presenting the truth of God's Word.Even though the Word of God hurts, it brings real healing and real solution to man's sinfulness. Though this hub maybe hurting to some, but it will surely bring true healing. As some says "Open rebuke is better than secret love." Thank you for sharing this marvelous hub with precious truths from God's Word. Blessings to you and your family. Best regards.

Cristina, Thank You! I think it is important that we examine ourselves in the LIGHT of GOD'S WORD! The WORD teaches us that "GOD is LOVE!" Therefore everything HE does and says is because He LOVES us! GOD truly does KNOW what is best for us! Spiritual healing is available! My FAITH & TRUST is in the LORD & the POWER of HIS WORD!

Thank you for sharing this excellent and appropiate Scripture; "Open rebuke is better than secret love." We are living in some interesting times; many are confused as to what is right... The LORD has said "HIS WORD is a lamp unto our feet and a LIGHT unto our path..." It is important that we present the TRUTH of GOD'S WORD and TRUST His Holy Spirit to open minds and hearts and illuminate the understanding... He will direct us to all TRUTH!

Thank you for confirming what the Lord has put upon my heart to share. I discern that we are on one accord here!

Again THANK YOU! In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

DeBorrah, great job. The truth is, those living in darkness and dedicated to their sins will view any light as oppressive and inconvinent. 1Corinthians 12:5 tells us that there are different administrations, but the same Lord. I've always felt that this means there are different ways of saying the same thing, to get through to different people. Christ came right out and often told some that they were hypocrites, even wolves, and devils. There are times to call things what they are - boldly and truthfully. The idea that there is some type of salvation to always be found in coddling the truth restricts the spirit from putting fire into an issue. Great job of lighting an honest fire. Peace.

Deborrah, God lifts up and God destroys, we know how clear he is on these subjects. You have reminded us of one more piece to his instruction. Each one alone, if dwelled in will destroy the soul, but taken together and placed with the many pieces, we see how cleaver sin is. Thank you sister for you clear thinking and straight laced doxology. God Bless.

A. M. Werner, God Bless you! “There are times to call things what they are - boldly and truthfully. The idea that there is some type of salvation to always be found in coddling the truth restricts the spirit from putting fire into an issue.” Amen & AMEN!! This is so TRUE! This statement is significantly pertinent!

So often it is thought that we must cushion the TRUTH for fear of being perceived as legalistic or judgmental! His HOLY SPIRIT is here to convict ALL of us of any sin... There is POWER in the WORD of GOD! The truth is “coddling” is what has caused many to continue down the wide road because they are made to feel comfortable in the “quicksand of the world...” The principles of God’s Word have been laid aside! In order to get back on track ALL of God’s WORD must be embraced. This is true from the pew to the pulpit as well as to unbelievers! Jesus is the Way the TRUTH and the LIFE! We are charged to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ "in season and out season…" He will open the hearts and minds to the TRUTH of HIS WORD!

As ministers of the GOSPEL we are to be “flames of fire…” Hebrews 1. As JUDE says we are to contend for "THE FAITH!"

We must TRUST GOD and rest in knowing the LORD KNOWS the sincere intentions of our hearts! Thank You and PRAISE GOD! In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

Jason R Manning, Thank You! The Word stands on its own merit and authority! It is the barometer by which we measure TRUTH! It is amazing how powerful the WORD is! When the Lord unveils the TRUTH we can no longer hide behind an excuse. Or you can just elect to do your own thing…

God never directs us to do anything that is contrary to His Word! As we embrace the TRUTH of His Word we can experience Freedom when we embrace the principle therein and apply it to our lives…

God truly is AWESOME! He knows exactly where each of us are… All we must do is reach out to Him! Wherever we are if we trust Him, step out on Faith and allow Him to guide us through His Holy Spirit and His Word He will take us wherever we need to be!

Thank you for sharing your insightful wisdom! It has been much appreciated! Thank You for your encouraging and spiritual confirmation! In His Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

God says that sexual sin is against one's own body. We know fornication is against God's law in the Scripture. We know that any fornication is wrong. But then God goes farther and calls this particular sin an abomination. It is given additional descriptors that clarify what emotions God feels about it. This act is not a new creation. It was prevelent in the times of Scripture, old and new testaments. It raises its ugly deceptive head again in our society and people are so afraid to name it as sin because someone may view them as bigoted, even "racist". God never said to hate the people who practice it, but to clearly let them know that even though it "feels right" to their flesh, God had a different idea about their behavior and He is sickened by it. With our ungodly society pushing to have homosexuality treated as validly as living according to Scripture, it is sometimes hard for even Christians to be rigid about it in front of others. But the Bible does not give us the luxury to be accomodating when it comes to diluting the institution of marriage. We are to honor it and keep it sacred. I'm sure there will be hurt feelings about what I said here and some will say that I can't love and speak like this but they are wrong. We must love and speak like this. Love you DeB, my wonderfully wise sister in the Lord.

Nobody, Thank YOU! GOD is All knowing and loving and KNOWS what is best for us! He designed us with a purpose in mind. He even told Adam & Eve “to be fruitful and multiply….” This is not naturally possible in same sex relationships … It is clear that He has said certain things are taboo. He has also said that this is an abomination to HIM. Although many now say this is acceptable this still does not change what God has said. It just makes me wonder if you can select only certain Scriptures to believe who determines which ones?

Marriage between a man and a woman is sacred in the eyes of the Lord! You can choose to believe this or not but it does not change His design nor alter the fact that He considers same sex relationships as an abomination…. Since the lines have been blurred many are confused! This has made fornication and adultery more inviting for many as well… It all boils down to spiritual warfare...

As you say: “With our ungodly society pushing to have homosexuality treated as validly as living according to Scripture, it is sometimes hard for even Christians to be rigid about it in front of others. But the Bible does not give us the luxury to be accommodating when it comes to diluting the institution of marriage. We are to honor it and keep it sacred.” Amen!

As you say “there may be hurt feelings…” The intention is not to intentionally hurt anyone but to enlighten others to what God has to say about Marriage and encourage others to uphold and honor God’s design for Marriage! We all must answer to God… This is what “Speaking the TRUTH in LOVE means….

Thank you for sharing once again your spiritual insight. Let’s continue to encourage others to honor MARRIAGE GOD”S WAY! In His LOVE, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!
