NOT WHAT GOD HAD IN MIND
-‘What ‘is an’ Eva-Eva!’
-Statement one uses when one doesn’t know what to say, when one comes across a word one cannot pronounce or when one hears something so ‘foolish’ they don’t know how to respond.
During my daily skimming of the internet one Morning, looking through articles that were posted for the day, I happened across an article that proclaimed, ‘Marriage Becoming OBSOLETE In Today’s Society.’ Upon reading this article’s header I was brought to a pause and responded with a huge ‘What the !#*!?,’ before saying to myself, ‘GOD, what is this world of ours coming to?’ ‘What are we thinking and why are we thinking this way?’ ‘Why are We so afraid of following You and simply doing what’s RIGHT?’ Then, as I sat back to ponder this proclamation it occurred to Me that this is exactly what is going on with us at present. We are choosing to enter relationships for physical reasons, for monetary and material gain, for our own selfish ‘instant gratification,’ because We have parented a child/children out of a moment of passion, for reasons of convenience, for reasons that have nothing to do with MARRIAGE being the outcome but for reasons that I don’t have enough space to word process here and definitely for reasons that are not justification for MARRIAGE to be proclaimed as becoming OBSOLETE.
OBSOLETE is a word that should never be associated with Marriage for the GREAT fact that Marriage was created by GOD to be a ‘GOOD THING.’ The Bible begins with a MARRIGE, speaks several times of MARRIAGE throughout and ends with a MARRIAGE, this shows that MARRIAGE is important to GOD so it should be important as well as respected by us. When GOD began creating, creation started with a MARRIAGE in the Garden of Eden between the first Man and Woman, Adam and Eve. When GOD sent HIS Son, Jesus as our Savior, HE said that Jesus, ‘…was come to be MARRIED with His Bride, the Church. Us…’ When GOD spoke or when Jesus would teach in parables, MARRIAGE was used to teach the people lessons about MARRIAGE itself and about life as a whole. And, in the END, which is spoken about in Revelations at the finale of the Bible, GOD’s word speaks of the Heavens and the Earth being MARRIED together to form a new place for us to dwell.
In today’s society and world, We have forgotten this, We have chosen to put it somewhere else due to our wanting things to be ‘Our Way,’ Man’s Way,’ and not GOD’s Way or We were never taught this by those that know. We have, a lot of us, chosen not to follow GOD’s laws for MARRIAGE and given ourselves too many choices concerning this matter, that is why MARRIAGE today is seen as becoming obsolete and accepted as ‘right’ or ‘ok’ to be seen in that light. We are so tainted and selfish, as well as afraid of following GOD’s laws and deciding to follow Man’s ways due to our not wanting to be seen as too Christian or not part of the world or society’s mindset, that We simply settle and go along with the ‘Ways of the World.’ This is a sad case and the reason that things are not and will not work in our relationships and MARRIAGES.
As long as We choose to do things our way and not go back to GOD’s Word on MARRIAGE and the respect it deserves it will be seen as obsolete and something that is fading away and no longer an option for us. Those of us that still believe in MARRIAGE and respect it for what GOD created it to be are at times seen as different or ‘behind the times,’ as they say, because We are not conforming to society’s ideals on MARRIAGE and what it is or should be. I, myself, respect MARRIAGE and what it stands for. I always will. It sickens Me, and others that feel the same I am sure, to read an article proclaiming that MARRIAGE is becoming obsolete or to hear someone say that MARRIAGE is a ‘BAD THING.’ How could that be when GOD created it? How easily We tend to get amnesia concerning this! Everything that GOD created, HE created with no flaws and for the GOOD. Especially, MARRIAGE!
My Friend, let’s get back to GOD’s laws on MARRIAGE and follow HIS guidelines of what it is and should be so as not to make it seem OBSOLETE. Returning to HIS ways will make our way so much easier in MARRIAGE, in life, in society and in LOVE.
And, to you individuals saying or believing that MARRIAGE is becoming obsolete because you are conforming to Man’s Ways and afraid of following GOD’s laws, I say to you…
