GOD Is The Author And Creator of MARRIAGE
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…
