The Pharisees also came unto Him, tempting Him, and saying unto Him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? 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. (Mat 19:3-6)
This attempt at testing the Authority and knowledge of Jesus concerning the Law centered around marriage, and our Lord, the creator of man and marriage rightly explained that GOD created marriage, from the beginning, as one man, and one woman, for life. He did so before He instituted governments, or nations, or even His Church, because the family is the foundation of all the others. He brought Eve to Adam and established marriage as a single unity, and expects us to continue this practice regardless of what other later institutions may do in rebellion against their Creator.
A proper marriage, unified and strengthened in Christ, provides a proper environment for raising GODly offspring, and working properly in the community, the Church, and the nation. We must understand this role, not to tear down those that disagree, but to lift up this moral and philosophical standard as instituted by GOD from the very beginning.
If we, in GOD's Church do not understand the reason, and the permanency of marriage as GOD intended, how can we expect the lost world to do so. The Scriptures teach us Truth about GOD, man, and marriage, and we must be obediently to His Word. His people need to get back to being people of the Book, and hold to His authority from the Word He has given us to follow. GOD warned us that many, even in His Church, would not hold to sound Doctrine, but would after their own lusts, heap to themselves teachers that would tell them what they want to hear, and not what GOD says. Whether it is the denial of Creation, the destruction of morality and marriage, or the redefining of sIn and Salvation, GOD's Word has always been under attack, from without and now from within.
GOD's people, following GOD's Word, in the power of the Holy Spirit, not only ought to be obedient to His commands, but also must hold to His standard and lift Him up, as Creator, Redeemer, and King. As His ambassadors we are to minister to the hurting, and meet their needs as GOD gives the increase. We are to disciple one another in love and in His Word, so that we know what it says, from cover to cover, and also what it means, and what GOD would have us to do with what He has said. We are to live the Gospel we preach, and go to this lost and dying world with the Truth of faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary. As we go, we are to warn of Judgment, and preach Christ and the Good News of Jesus that all may hear and believe, and in believing in Him have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
