Marriage

Image result for images for godly marriage one man one woman

God’s enemy and our enemy, if we are God’s children, seems to be accomplishing much in twisting God’s Word on the subject of marriage. And those who do not know God and who He truly is, nor do they know His true Word, are buying it lock, stock, and barrel. Today we look at what His plan is and always has been, and what it will always be for marriage. Unlike the world, God never changes.

God’s marriage plan is first made know in Genesis 2:24 “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” (Unfortunately, some families choose to forget that scripture, especially when it concerns a brother or son. This is sin and makes the poor wife’s life miserable. These deceived ones need to realize that he will always be their brother/son, but now his life is with his wife. They are one and “no one is to come between them.”)

God’s marriage plan is repeated in Matthew 9:4-6 “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” And Ephesians 5:31 “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.” Marriage was perfect in its establishment: one man and one woman in a lifetime commitment.

It was never God’s intention for man to be alone – Genesis 2:18 “And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” God used one of Adam’s own ribs to craft this woman for him – Genesis 2:23 “And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” Woman was taken out of the man, and then she was presented to the man so that she could complete the man.

God created the man and the woman in His own image – Genesis 1:26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.” They were created with emotional and physical needs that only another human being could meet – Genesis 2:18.

There were no parents in the Garden of Eden, but God’s formula for oneness in marriage extended far into the future. The life-mates are to “leave” their parents and “cleave” to each other in order to become one – Genesis 2:24. They are to be willing to lay aside all that pertains to their old loyalties and lifestyles of separate goals and plans and be joined to one another. This clinging refers to a strong, enduring bond–making one unit bound together by unconditional commitment, love, and acceptance–resulting in a combined unit much stronger than either individual had been separately – Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” (Man and woman and God)

Marriage between one man and one woman is a spiritual miracle because the marriage relationship pictures the union of Christ and His bride, the church – Ephesians 5:22-29 “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:”

So we see that God considers the marriage relationship a Holy relationship, which brings to question those who wish to convince us that marriage should also include Sodomites marrying Sodomites. Yes, I said Sodomites. I know the politically correct would have us refer to them as gays or homosexuals. Those words are not used in God’s Word to describe men with men and women with women. The ruler of this world has chosen those words to make those who sin the sin of sodomy feel more comfortable in their sin. Jude 7: “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

This is what God truly thinks of the sin of sodomites:

Leviticus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

Leviticus 20:13 “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

Romans 1:24-28 “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;”

I would say that is very clear and concise, and not open for human fleshly debate. It is an abomination – Strong’s Concordance – Hebrew: toebah, to-ay-baw’ – disgusting, abhorrence, loathsome, detestable. When used with reference to God, this word describes people, things, acts, relationships, and characteristics that are detestable to Him because they are contrary to His nature. Does God love Sodomites? Of course He does. Just as He loves someone who commits any sin, BUT he hates their sin. It is an abomination to Him because He is Holy. He would that we would repent or turn from our sin, no matter what it is, and turn to a right relationship with Him. For, if we continue to live in our sin, we break fellowship with our loving Father. To me, the thought of breaking fellowship with God is heartbreaking. I, too, had done so in my past when I chose to go the way of this world and live in sin, and I pray I never let that happen again.

Holy Unto God

Image result for images for living holy to god

What does God’s Word say about being Holy? First let us look at how God is Holy. 1 John 1:5 “This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.” There is no sin in God at all. He is totally separate from anything evil. For us to have fellowship with Him, we must strive to be Holy. When we live in sin, we break fellowship with Him. Understand that we cannot be perfect as He is until we go to be with Him. But we must, with all our hearts, live each day trying to live separate from sin so that we may have fellowship with God. My devotion this morning touched on daily cleansing ourselves of sin so that we may have fellowship with God. The cleansing comes from examining myself each day and confessing and repenting of my sins, as well as asking God to show me of any un-confessed sin that I need to bring before Him. Since I am born with a sinful, fleshly nature, I am bound to commit some sin every day of my life. So, I need a daily cleansing. This is part of trying to be holy unto God.

1 Peter 1:16 “Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” Quotes Leviticus 19:2 “Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy.” We see that because God is holy, He calls us to be holy. If we are living under the influence of this world, we are apart from God and cannot be holy. The only way we can live holy unto God is by the power of His Holy Spirit. Therefore, we must first be saved by the blood of Jesus and filled with His Spirit to be able to even try to live a holy life. God reveals any un-confessed sin in our lives through His Holy Spirit. If we try to just “be good people” we are doing things on our own. Being good does not get us to Heaven. John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Once we are saved, then the Holy Spirit’s power aids us in living holy or righteously for God. 1 Peter 1:14-16 “As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; (not just in our speech, but in how we live our lives) Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” We can be holy by being obedient to God in ALL areas of our lives. To be able to obey God, we must KNOW God – Psalm 119:9-12 “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word. With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments. Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.” To know God’s Word, is to know God.

If we are truly spending time with our Lord each day and in His Word and hiding it in our hearts, it will show outwardly and some in this world will see and possibly come to know Him too. Our speech will change, our faces will probably smile more because our hearts are smiling more. Our dress when we come into His house will change as well. When we first start walking with the Lord, we may not understand that how we dress in His house and in His Service reflects where we are in our walk with Him. It is the Holy Spirit’s job to convict a child of God of things in our outward appearance as to where we are in our holiness. If we are dressing like we are going to a back yard B-B-Q instead of wearing our best to His house, we still need work in our hearts. Only the Holy Spirit can do that. That is why we pray for each other in these areas. As we grow closer to Him, we understand that, and are happy to show Him respect by giving Him our best when we come to His house, or when we serve Him. That comes with time. I have always pondered how some can have no problem whatsoever dressing nice and respectful for a friend’s wedding, for example, but coming to the house of our Holy God Jehovah in disrespect and immodesty. But, that is something I leave to the Lord. It is my responsibility to act according to God’s direction and set an holy example for Him. I have to remind myself that children are not being taught, as I was, that when we come into God’s house, we show Him respect, by dressing in our best.

Psalms 99

1 The LORD reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved.

2 The LORD is great in Zion; and he is high above all the people.

3 Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy.

4 The king’s strength also loveth judgment; thou dost establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob.

5 Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.

6 Moses and Aaron among his priests, and Samuel among them that call upon his name; they called upon the LORD, and he answered them.

7 He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar: they kept his testimonies, and the ordinance that he gave them.

8 Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their inventions.

9 Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the LORD our God is holy.

“Fervent Heat”

Thank you Lord for this Baptist Bread Devotional! And thank you Pastor/Dr. Steve Harness for these great Godly words of wisdom!

II Peter 3:10 “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Believers are looking for the return of Christ, the Blessed Hope, for the Rapture, when Christ takes His own out of this Jesus-rejecting world. Once the Rapture takes place, the world will follow antichrist, and the Lord will begin judging the earth in what is called the Tribulation.

When God’s plan for the world is complete, the earth will be destroyed. This is what is being referenced in this passage in II Peter. Not too long ago, I was able to visit two volcanoes. What a thrill to see this amazingly powerful natural phenomenon. The destructive force of volcanoes and the lava they spew are incredible. Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines erupted in 1991. The effects are still seen over twenty years later! When the Bible talks about fervent heat and the elements dissolving away, it is speaking of an event more powerful than the eruption of a volcano.

II Peter 3:12 also mentions the melting with fervent heat, then verse 13 says, “Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.” Verse 11 tells us that in the meantime, while waiting for Christ, and later the new Heaven and new earth, that we are to carefully live holy lives before the Lord. Check your life and check your motives today. –Steve Harness

May God Continue to Bless America

 

Although progressive socialists have high-jacked our country for nearly 4 years now, I want to believe that there are still more of us who truly believe in the grit this country possesses, and we will make the real change that is needed this November. I pray that the overwhelming “entitlement mentality” communities finally understand that nothing the great O has promised is free. Unfortunately, because of the bad choice that was made in 2008, the innocent suffer along with the guilty who voted this Chicago Mob in to run our country. We also need to understand the division that this current “regime” is trying to cause in our great nation.

We MUST bring God back into our country and into our lives; else He will not continue to bless us. (Ezekiel 21:1-32 Our God is a just God)

Thanksgiving-What Really Took Place

Our great nation is, more than ever, under attack by the evil forces in this world who hate God. As we pray for God’s will, He is on His throne, we must also take responsibility as His children to do our part. We most assuredly need to pray and take action to change the current administration in our White House. But, as that happens, we must continue to fall on our knees and cry out and repent and turn from our evil ways of the world. I am once again reminded of 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If MY PEOPLE, WHICH ARE CALLED BY MY NAME, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their WICKED WAYS; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (Emphasis mine.) There are far too many who claim God’s saving grace, but continue to live in sin and teach others that it is ok, just be good. At this Thanksgiving time of year, let us become more attentive and responsible for and to God’s truths. “To whom much is given, much is required!”

“This is an article reprinted by permission in it’s entirety from The Christian Law Association’s website. It contains truths that are never heard in our schools or media today. Due to the pernicious demand that we must have a “separation of church and state” by the anti-God crowd, the truth of our country’s Godly heritage has been virtually drowned out. Hopefully this article will help you to see that God is real and that He is still at work.” (Images added by Anna.)

Americans are beginning to forget the important origins of our national Thanksgiving holiday. Its spiritual significance is no longer taught in our nation’s public schools. In fact, most school children today are taught that Thanksgiving originated when the Pilgrims invited their Indian friends to dinner to thank them for providing sustenance after the Mayflower landed. As with much of modern American revisionist history, there really is much more to the story.

Richard Warren, among 10 passengers in the lan...

Coming to America
The Atlantic crossing in the fall of 1620 had been an extremely difficult journey for the Pilgrims. For two months, 102 people were wedged into what was called the “tween decks” of the Mayflower-the ship’s cargo space with only about five-and-a-half feet of headroom. No one was allowed above deck because of the terrible storms. This was no pleasure trip. The Pilgrims comforted themselves on their journey by singing from the Book of Psalms. This “noise” irritated one of the ship’s paid crewmembers. He told the Pilgrims he was looking forward to throwing their corpses overboard after they succumbed to the routine illnesses common on such voyages. As it turned out, this crewmember himself was the only person to die on the voyage and be thrown overboard. God providentially protected His own people. A little-known fact about the Mayflower is that this ship normally carried a cargo of wine; and the wine spillage from previous voyages had soaked the beams, acting as a disinfectant to prevent the spread of disease. During one terrible storm, the main beam of the mast cracked. Death was certain if this beam could not be repaired. At that moment, the whole Pilgrim adventure could very easily have ended on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Providentially, the Pilgrims had with them a large iron printing press screw. That screw repaired the beam, saving the ship and all on board.

“Land Ho!”

Mayflower arrived inside the tip of Cape Cod f...

After sixty-six days at sea, land was sighted off Cape Cod, Massachusetts, not the place these Pilgrims wanted to be. They intended to establish their new colony in the northern parts of Virginia (which then extended to the Hudson River in modern-day New York), but two factors interrupted their plans. The winds had blown them off course, yes; but they later learned that other Englishmen who wanted to settle in the same part of Virginia had actually bribed the ship’s crew to land them farther north. Despite this chicanery, God was in charge and the Pilgrims landed exactly where God wanted them to be. Had they actually made landfall near the Hudson River, they most certainly would have been immediately attacked by hostile Indians. Instead, they arrived at the one spot along the coast where hostile Indians had been providentially removed from the land. Many years before the Mayflower journey, local Indians had captured a Frenchman on a fishing expedition to that region. Just as they were about to kill him, the Frenchman warned them God would be angry, would destroy them all, and would replace them with another nation. The Indians boastfully replied that his God could never kill them. Yet, a year or two before the Pilgrims arrived in this very same region, nearly all the native inhabitants had been wiped out by a plague.

Help Arrives
Despite this miraculous provision of safety from hostile Indians, the Pilgrims barely survived their first winter on the Cape. Only four families remained intact; but God was still faithful. In the spring of 1621, He sent Squanto, an English-speaking Indian who offered to teach the Pilgrims how to survive in this strange new land. Squanto was one of only a few local Indians who escaped the plague. He had been captured as a young man and taken to England as a slave. During that time he mastered the English language. When he was freed, he returned to his native territory on the Cape shortly before the Pilgrims arrived.

How Well The Corn Prospered. Squanto or Tisqua...

Probably the most important thing Squanto
taught the Pilgrims was how to plant the native winter staple crop-corn. The Pilgrims thanked God for this wonderful helper. They also repaid Squanto by sharing with him the most valuable treasure they had brought with them from England-the Gospel. Squanto died a year or two after coming to the aid of the Pilgrims, but before his death he asked them to pray with him that he might go to be with their God in Heaven.

Peace and Thankfulness
Squanto introduced other Indians to the Pilgrims, and these Indians were also impressed with the Pilgrims’ God.

Prayer

During the summer of 1621, it appeared the year’s corn harvest would not survive a severe drought. The Pilgrims responded by calling for a day of fasting and prayer. By the end of the day, it was raining. The rain saved the corn, which miraculously sprang back to life. One of the Indians who observed this miracle remarked that the Pilgrims’ God must be a very great God because when the Indians pow-wowed for rain, it always rained so hard that the corn stalks were broken down. They noticed the Pilgrims’ God acted differently by sending a very gentle rain that did not damage the corn harvest. It was that miraculous corn harvest in 1621 that provided grain for the Pilgrims’ first Thanksgiving meal with their Indian friends and helpers. The evidence of history shows that on this first Thanksgiving Day, both the Pilgrims and Indians thanked God for His great provision and for His goodness toward them all. Unlike other Europeans who came to America, these Bible-believing Pilgrims were model Christians in their dealings with the native populations. During their first year on the Cape, Squanto, acting as a friend and interpreter, had assisted the Pilgrims in negotiating an important peace treaty with Chief Massasoit, leader of the nearby Wampanoag Indians. The two populations, Indian and Pilgrim, kept that treaty of peace for more than fifty years.

The Tradition Continues
The story of Thanksgiving doesn’t end there. The holiday itself was not officially celebrated until almost 170 years later, after the Revolutionary War had been won and our American Constitution had been adopted.

Detail of Preamble to Constitution of the Unit...

In 1789, Congress approved the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to the Constitution. Congress then “recommended a day of public thanksgiving and prayer” to thank God for blessing America. President Washington declared November 26, 1789, as the first national day of prayer and thanksgiving to the Lord. Another 75 years later, after the Civil War ended, President Abraham Lincoln officially established the last Thursday in November as a day to acknowledge “the gracious gifts of the Most High God,” which He had bestowed on America. Every president continued this tradition until 1941 when Congress officially made Thanksgiving a national holiday.

Teach Your Children

Now that you know the true story of Thanksgiving, this year make sure your children and grandchildren learn it too. As America is currently facing serious challenges both at home and abroad, let’s join together with countless generations before us in giving thanks to God for blessing and preserving our nation. Let’s make sure that all our children and grandchildren learn Whose hand of protection has been on America; and let’s all pray that He will continue to bless and sustain our nation as we continue to acknowledge and honor Him.

Creation of the First Woman

Adam and Eve

Adam and Eve (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

The first time the word woman appears in the Bible is when God created Eve from Adam’s rib or side. The Hebrew word for this usage of woman is nashiym (naw-sheem), “because she was taken out of man” (Genesis 2:23). The stress is on identification of womanhood.

God’s word tells us that he created the earth and the heavens and everything in them in seven days. It was on the 6th day that he created mankind. Genesis 1:26, 27 – “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

We see that God made both man and woman in his image. One was not any more the image of God than the other. Neither sex was of more or lesser value to God. He fashioned and prepared us for various tasks, but his purpose was for us to live with the same intent: to honor God. Though one of us is not superior to the other, each of our genders has its own exclusive privileges.

In Genesis 2:18 God saw that it was not good for Adam to be alone; he was incomplete. “I will make him an help meet for him.” So God formed all of the beasts of the field and the birds in the air and gave them to Adam to see what names he would give them. But there was no help meet found for him among all of those.

God put Adam into a deep sleep and took one of his ribs and made a woman and brought her to him. The Hebrew word for rib used here is the feminine tsalah (tsal-aw). Literally it means a rib, as curved, of the body; or figuratively, a side or chamber of a person. Wow! It makes me think of woman actually being taken out of a chamber in man’s side. That helps me to understand why it is a God-given instinct for a man to take his woman under his wing to care for and protect her. It also explains why we women have a deep desire for our knight in shining armor to ride in, whisk us off our feet and devote his life to us. I believe that deep down inside, every woman wants her husband to step up and be the Godly leader that God created him to be. I know that I find that very comforting.

God could have made Eve from dust as he did Adam, but he chose to create her from the man’s flesh and bone. This symbolizes how a man’s and a woman’s hearts and lives are mysteriously joined together in marriage. We can see throughout God’s word that he takes this union very seriously.

A good question to ask ourselves before marrying is : “Are we willing to keep the commitment which makes the two of us one? The ultimate goal in marriage is more than friendship; it is oneness.

Side Note: God did not create man out of man nor woman out of woman that they would be godly joined in union as one. His word clearly states that he made woman from the side of man. The natural union of man and woman in marriage is a sacred blessing from God.

Homosexuality: to “change” or “leave the natural use of” sex

For those who live a homosexual lifestyle and try to justify it by pointing to God’s love and grace, I say, examine yourselves as to whether you are truly a born-again child of God, or ask yourselves if you are being led astray by Satan’s deceivers. Some are choosing to be deceived by so-called preachers (some who are homosexuals themselves) who teach that they cannot help being the way they are. Many believe and teach that their desires are normal and that they have a right to express them. God does not encourage us to fulfill all of our desires, as they are not all good desires. We must restrain those desires that violate his laws. Satan’s liars do not set the standard for God’s Law, and they will answer to God for it.

Yes, God does love the sinner, but he does hate the sin. He is willing to receive anyone who comes to him in faith, and as Christians, we should always love and accept others, but not their sin. We are not to stand in judgment, but to use good judgment when it comes to tolerating what God looks upon as sin.

Homosexuality is a sin in God’s eyes. Leviticus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is an abomination.” The Hebrew word here for abomination as referenced to God (because this act is an abomination in God’s eyes) is toebah (to-ay-baw) – and it describes people, things, acts, relationships, and characteristics that are detestable to Him because they are contrary to His nature.

Can a saved person live the life of a homosexual? I have pondered that question much because I know and love some who live that lifestyle and say that they are saved. Only God knows that for sure. Saved people are sinners and we will be until we be with our Lord. We are to live day by day in God’s grace, repenting for sins that our natural flesh is tempted to. Repenting means turning away from.

I would venture to say that if they are saved, they are ignoring the roots of whatever issues they have in their pasts that may have led them to this lifestyle. I would also submit, that if they were totally honest with themselves, they would admit that they do not have God’s peace that passes understanding in their spirits.

To those who have homosexual desires: You can and must resist acting upon them. As with temptation to any sin, you must consciously stay away from places and behaviors that you know will spark these temptations. Do not underestimate Satan’s power and goal to lead you astray. Also, I beg you to consider the risk you take for serious harm if you keep giving in to these temptations.

If you are saved and living a homosexual lifestyle: Do not forget that God will forgive sexual sins the same as he forgives other sins. The key is to completely surrender yourselves to the grace and mercy of God, and ask him to show you the way out of sin and into the light of his liberty and love. Immerse yourselves in prayer, Bible study, and the loving support of Christians in a Bible-believing church that does not water down God’s word to make you feel better about your sin. Those actions will help you to gain the strength that you need to resist those powerful temptations. You may even need to seek the help of a trustworthy and professional true, Christian counselor. Christian meaning living a Christ-filled, Christ-like lifestyle.
