COUNSELING & RELATIONSHIP BUILDING
HOW TO SAVE YOUR RELATIONSHIP – BY THE WORD OF GOD (Part 1)
For Married and Non-Married Partners
The instructions that you are about to read is God’s order for married couples, which also applies even more to partners in a relationship found in the Holy Bible. Most people are not aware that their partner wasn't a coincidence but a unification orchestrated by God or Satan. Nobody will agree that the partnership her or she is in was orchestrated by Satan, so let's assume it was orchestrated by God. Satan will present an alternative if you pick your partner based on outward appearance rather than waiting patiently for God to lead the way to your partnership. Satan has successfully destroyed many partnerships including marriages, especially when God is not involved in the partnership. This means if you follow what your creator endorses as His marriage blueprint, his warranty on your marriage will be honored. God loves us so much and he intends to give us his best, so open your heart to his word. Jesus said, you with evil minds want good things for your children, how much more God who is pure and holy (Luke 11:11-13). This goes deeper than “Thou shall not commit adultery.” THIS IS NOT HUMAN OPINION. God has given humanity rules of engagement in a marriage to support love.
This topic covers marriages and relationships that could lead to marriage. Note, I categorically mentioned “Relationships that lead to marriage.” Here is what it means and what it does not mean:
1. God endorses non-sexual relations before marriage.
2. A non-marriage relationship that involves sexual activities is adultery in the eyes of your creator, and those who practice that are committing sin, must stop, repent, and ask God for forgiveness. God will forgive you.
IF YOU WANT ME TO PROTECT YOUR MARRIAGE, SIMPLY FOLLOW MY MANUAL – BY GOD
We would begin at the first human marriage known to us through the Word of God, which is the marriage that God initiated between Adam and Eve. The Holy Bible tells us in Genesis 2:22-24 that God made the woman from the rib of the man. Quote, “And Adam said, This is now the bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh …. “ Right after he said that, God declared to him, “Therefore shall a man leave his father and cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”
DID YOU READ WHAT I JUST READ?
Rule number 1: God is the initiator of marriages. You may have met your sweetheart in the church, at a party, online, at school, through a friend, accidentally, you name it, or in the pit of hell; God that brought the two of you together to serve his purpose, and not the devil’s purpose.
Rule number 2: The only reason why God did not create the woman directly from dust as he did in the case of Adam (Every man) is because he wants you to see your spouse as your own bone and flesh (Genesis 2:23). This means WHATEVER corruption one of the spouses sees in the other is a section of him or herself that is corrupting. Therefore, God wants you to see it as your problem too and not just his or her problem. The point here is God wants you to see the other party’s deficiency as your deficiency because both of you are one body and not two separate bodies. This is in reference to marriages, only. In other words, when you criticize your spouse, you are criticizing yourself. Our thoughts do not count in God’s manual for the things that he has put in place. Study the manufacturer’s blueprint and you will know how to maintain his product.
Marriage couples will be considered two different beings when they appear before the judgment throne of God, so please do not think you can pile up sin on your spouse. You will be responsible for the sins you committed.
Rule number 3: God’s intention for bringing a man and a woman together in marriage is to have both parties take care of each other for Him, not for themselves. God gave you the spouse to take care of you for him. Your spouse is not your property; he or she belongs to God and for God’s purpose, only. God never intended to create you to pursue your plans and ideas; he created you for his plans and ideas.
NOW THAT WE HAVE IDENTIFIED SOME OF THE PROBLEMS, LET US READ THE MANUAL FOR THE SOLUTION.
This will be our next topic.
Let me give you a hint: Whatever you thought was the problem wasn’t the problem and whatever you think is the solution is not the solution. This problem existed before you were born. Please, mail this to every married couple or young adults that you know. Be blessed!
