What Is Marriage All About?

 You may be asking, "What is marriage all about?" Therefore, in this Bible teaching about marriage, let me briefly finger point to what marriage is all about.

 Marriage is the union between a man and a woman.

 To simplify the matter, marriage is all about two people coming together in agreement, to become one person in alignment with the Word of God.


Bible About Marriage

 The Bible about marriage is set on marriage as a (i.e one) relationship which is between two opposite sex (male and female).

  "And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

 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.

 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed." (Genesis 2:18-25).

 As much as the establishment of marriage is beyond the scope of this write-up, we must understand that marriage was created and  ordained by God unto man.

Question Matter From Bible About Marriage

 The question, "Is marriage for everyone?" is what everyone should ask themselves before practicing the act of marriage.

 If I should ask why you got married or why you married? I know many people will give many different answers, but not all of them got the same as answers after their marriages.

 How about those planning or intending to get married? Can you use the comment section to tell us why you want to get married?

 Kindly read the Bible verses about marriage above, again.


Bible Teaching About Marriage

 "Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge." (Hebrews 13:4).

 As a matter of truth, God is not against marriage. God created and ordained marriage. He is recreating marriages and will continue to recreate every crooked marriage, manifested in the ignorance of the Maker of marriage.

 The recreation of marriages can only commence when an affected home, realizes its nakedness and returns to its Maker.

 Our Bible teaching about marriage references the honour in marriage according to the Maker (with the bed undefiled.)

 This Bible teaching about marriage also points to the judgment of God upon whoremongers and adulterers.


Who Is A Whoremonger?

 A Whoremonger is a male practitioner of sexual immoral acts, especially with a prostitute.

Who Is An Adulterer?

 An Adulterer is a person who involves in extramarital affairs (by this, I mean adultery.)

 As simple as it may look, God does not in anyway support whoremongers or adulterous activities. They may be renowned and practiced shamelessly, but they weren't from the beginning.

 Therefore, God's judgment is waiting for those who live practically by covetousness and adultery.

 "For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

 Be not ye therefore partakers with them." (Ephesians 5:5-7).



The Bible teaching about marriage is two people becoming one flesh.

Bible Teaching About Marriage In Christ

 It is worth knowing that Christ is indeed all, and very much in all. 

 Also, there is no other Bible teaching about marriage without Christ at the center of marriage.

 Brother Paul in Ephesians 5:22-33  said;

 "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:

 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

 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.

 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband."


 The Bible about marriage is centered on the person of God; Jesus Christ. In Him, all are made of one spirit with the Father, just as marriage implies that two becomes one flesh.

  He is the real manifestation of marriage and should be the main point of focus in every marital home.

 Referencing Jesus Christ in your marriage, is the key factor to a functional union of acceptance and understanding (love); fulfilling the will of God in marriage.


Bible Teaching About Marriage: The Lord's Command

 "And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:

 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife." (1 Corinthians 7:10-11).


 Whatever be the reason for your marriage, let it be reasonable enough to keep you in your marriage to the coming of our Lord Jesus.

 Don't put away your husband not your wife, neither have any extramarital affairs. It is sin and detestable!

 Note: God recognizes the union between a man and his wife.

 Any doctrine transgressing in this, is out of the plan of God from the beginning.  Furthermore, it is the workings of the flesh, and trespassing before God. Stop it! Remember God's judgment.


Conclusion

 "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God." (Revelation 19:7-9).

 God began marriage in the beginning and will finish it in the end of time in Christ Jesus.

 Therefore, any relationship imitating the activities (approved by God unto marriage) which are not in the order of God, means ungodliness and should be repented of.

 I pray the Lord our God increases your understanding of marriage beyond the scope of this Bible teaching about marriage in the Bible about marriage, in Jesus name.


Prayer Of Salvation

 If you want to surrender to Jesus Christ, pray this prayer with me:

 Lord Jesus, I thank you for your word and love towards me. I know I am a sinner who has been deceived by the world and deserves, death. Therefore, I come to you for soul salvation and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Thank you LORD for saving me in Jesus name.


Pray For Me

   I pray for your son, Joseph Edem Bassey. Bless him and keep him, make your face shine upon him and fill him with Thine excellent spirit. Reveal Yourself and Your glory to him, while using him to fulfill Your perfect will in Jesus name, amen!


 If you prayed that prayer, I want to say congratulations and thank you for praying for me. 

Kindly use this moment to pray for the restoration of marriages in the world.

God bless you.
