Married In Spirit And Truth
Debate after debate; many have claimed that the beautiful woman sitting across from me right now and I are not man and wife. I say we are. A little over 1 month ago Maggie and I stood on a rock in the ocean before God and two others and made vows of love and marriage to each other. We filmed this whole ceremony. You can see that video at this hub:
Some people want to claim that we are not truly married. I beg to differ. First, in the days of old, it was not done with a big ceremony paying extravagant fees for a dress, a building, a preacher and food. Adam and Eve were married in the eyes of God. Eve didn't wear a long white dress and Adam a tuxedo. There wasn't rice thrown and bachelor and bachelorette parties given.
God said, "It is not good for man to be alone" in Genesis 2:18. I claimed my devotion to Maggie and she to me. That is exactly what marriage is! It isn't signing a piece of paper telling who gets what if they divorce.
When I got married to Jesus, I didn't have a Priest in front. God asked that we make it public. I did that in my marriage to God and Maggie and I made our marriage public.
We are married in God's eyes and that is all that really matters to us. What man thinks really doesn't matter.
Mankind has confused marriage. Like many other God-filled items, it has become a money making scheme. I have seen many marriages fall apart soon after the wedding because too much money was spent leaving nothing but stress and heartache.
God is love and that is what marriage is all about-LOVE. Not who can throw the biggest party.
Maggie and I did not come together for others, but for ourselves and for God.
I am willing to listen to arguments on the other side, but before you do, read your Bible close. Where exactly does it say that marriage is the preconceived ways that people do it now?
If two are truly devoted to each other and gave vows in public, how is that not marriage?
There are very many Bible scriptures on marriage and I have studied every one. We have prayed and Maggie and I are married. If you disagree, I lived in Missouri, the Show-Me State, so show me.
We are not living in sin, we are living a beautiful relationship in the eyes of God.
Ok, I'm ready; bring on the debate. You may want to talk to your Pastors, Priests, Rabbis and such beforehand.
I say and the Bible says that man's ideas of marriage are in error. No where in the Bible does it say that it has to be done the way the majority do it now.
Again my love, I devout my heart and my life completely to you. May our love be blessed and may God come first and each other next. I love you and thank you for being my wife.
Following are some quotes about marriage.
Marriage is not a word; it is a sentence.
In marriage, each partner is to be an encourager rather than a critic, a forgiver rather than a collector of hurts, an enabler rather than a reformer.
--H. Norman Wright and Gary J. Oliver
A great marriage is not when the 'perfect couple' come together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.
Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband; and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
--I Corinthians 7:2-4
Both Maggie and I have been led to tell others about Jesus and what He has done for us. Neither of us feel guilt nor shame. We are one together and in God's eye's we are one. If you have ever noticed, it is impossible for darkness to give light.
Both of us have blogs with Maggie being led to share Christ in Spanish and me in English.
God has blessed us and He will bless you too. Realize that the veil has been broken! You can go to God yourself. He talks to us and He will you too, just seek Him.
Below are links to both of our blogs, I pray you are blessed by them.
