“A GOOD MARRIAGE MUST HAVE ITS FOUNDATION IN YAHSHUA MESSIAH IN ORDER TO EXPERIENCE LASTING LOVE AND PEACE AND JOY.” PT 1
Marriage unites two sinners into one. Without looking at the gospel you will not understand biblical marriage. The main purpose of marriage is to glorify YAWEH Elohim (God) and to be a representation of how Messiah (Christ) loves the Congregation (Church).
In marriage you are not only committing to each other in companionship, you are committing to each other in everything. Nothing comes before your spouse.
Obviously, Elohim is the center piece of your marriage, but nothing besides the Redeemer Master is more important than your spouse. Not the kids, not congregation (church), not spreading the gospel, nothing!
If you had one rope and you had to choose between your spouse or everything else in the world hanging off a cliff, you choose your spouse.
“A good marriage must have its foundation in Yahshua Messiah in order to experience lasting love peace and joy.”
“I have known many happy marriages, but never a compatible one. The whole aim of marriage is to fight through and survive the instant when incompatibility becomes unquestionable.”
“A man who will lead you to Elohim and not to sin, is always worth the wait.”
“If he doesn’t fall on his knees in prayer, he doesn’t deserve to fall on one knee with a ring. A man without YAHWEH Elohim (God) is one I can live without.”
“LOVE IS FRIENDSHIP SET ON FIRE.”
“Men, you’ll never be a good groom to your wife unless you’re first a good bride to Yahshua Messiah.”
“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times always with the same person.”
What does the Bible say about marriage?
Adam was not complete by himself. He needed a helper. We were made to have a relationship.
Genesis 2:18 “YAHWEH said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
Proverbs 18:22 “He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from YAHWEH.”
1 Corinthians 11:8-9 “For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.”
Messiah and the Congregation (church) marriage
Marriage shows the relationship between Messiah and the Congregation (Church) and it is put on display in front of the whole world. It is to show how Messiah loves the body and how the body is to be devoted to Him.
Ephesians 5:25-27 “Husbands, love your wives, just as Messiah loved the congregation (church) and gave Himself for her to make her holy, cleansing her with the washing of water by the word. He did this to present the congregation to Himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or anything like that, but holy and blameless.”
Revelation 21:2 “And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from Elohim out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.”
Revelation 21:9 “Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven final plagues came and spoke to me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb!”
The Redeemer Master’s heart beats faster for His bride.
In the same way a man's heart beats faster for his bride here on earth. One glance at the love of his life and they have him hooked.
Song of Solomon 4:9 “You have made my heart beat faster, my sister, my bride; You have made my heart beat faster with a single glance of your eyes, With a single strand of your necklace.”
