Are YOU Marriage Material?

Preparing for Marriage

Are you approaching daily life and marriage with a SERVANT’s heart or to get your own “needs” met?

Are you personally denying yourself daily, taking up the cross, and following Jesus?

husband manhood serve humility cherish

REPENT FOR REAL, LAY DOWN YOUR LIFE WITHOUT RESERVE AND BEGIN TODAY SERVING HIM AND OTHERS – NOT YOURSELF! MEMORIZING PHILIPPIANS 2:3-5 WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. PRAYERFULLY READ THIS VITAL PASSAGE IN YOUR BIBLE STUDY EVERY SINGLE MORNING!

“For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.” Colossians 3:3

GOT YOUR SEAT BELT ON? IN MARRIAGE, the wife is to be loved, provided for, protected, and to be cherished by the husband, even as Christ loves and does with His church (Ephesians 5:25-30). In a marriage between a man and woman that glorifies God, there must be a foundational biblical revelation of the purpose for which men and women were originally, uniquely created. Satan has come in like a massive flood upon the minds of the “weaker vessel” to convince her that she needs all kinds of things that God never ordained or said were needs. In the unchanging divine economy, the most beautiful of all His creation, the woman, is to be the “helpmeet” (companion, helper, help mate to accomplish GOD’s will) of the man (Genesis 2:18). A godly relationship must be founded and grounded on God’s Word – both the man and woman repenting and learning and DOING what God has stated for their respective, unique roles. We must get rid of all we’ve ever learned from the wicked worldly societies we’ve learned from (Romans 12:1-2; Ephesians 4:23-25., etc.). If you are praying for that godly mate and yet are not diligently studying and learning to be a humble, serving-God-and-others disciple of Jesus, God sees it and will not plague someone else’s life by putting you with them. Those who aren’t learning to serve are devils, plain and simple. You are not ready and will not be till you lay down your own life and die. It’s time to take your own sins into account and cease pointing the finger (Job 19:28). You must trash the “What’s in it for me” motto which is for Satan’s children.

serve-humility-feetDie. Now. Lay down your life today. You’ve made religious excuses long enough. You’ve listened to the devil wolves like Osteen who promised you your best days are yet to come and yet you are an apostate counterfeit heading for hell. They refuse to preach repentance, the first word/command of the original Gospel (Matthew 3:2; 4:17; Acts 3:19, etc.). They lied to you and you listened all because you are not yet real with God (John 3:19-21; 2 Timothy 4:2-4). If you don’t truly repent for real and you marry, you will be personally responsible before the LORD for much destruction – as in how you will be the reason for much hurt and sin in that fabricated marriage. If you choose today to truly go before God and repent, you will, without exception, trash what you’ve learned from the world and begin to allow the constitution of your heart and life to be rewritten with God’s Word. There are people all around us who’ve wasted the best years of their lives living with a prideful, self-serving heart – people who’ve prayed for a godly mate while refusing to be godly themselves.

“Amen! The first step to finding a Godly Man or A Woman is by being one yourself.” Eliset Igat

Fresh Start with the LORD

Beware of the Scripture Twisting Jezebels

Todd tomasella | SAINTS, beware of those who attempt to change God’s Word to fit their own false doctrines and desires (Mark 7:6-10; 2 Timothy 4:2-4). Here’s a perfect example …… Regrettably, there are females who insist they are called by God to lead men. This is complete heresy and the subversive spirit of antichrist at work. Unthinkably, these rebels seek to ignorantly and arrogantly say the LORD missed it in translation in the King James Bible. This would be laughable if it were not so pitiful.

jezebel characteristics

“Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.” 1 Timothy 2:11-12

To the rebel, it’s all about THEM and not Christ and the protection of His body. In Revelation 2, Jesus solemnly warned us of the destruction that comes when a jezebel is allowed to function outside of the order God ordained for women.

“…to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.” Revelation 2:20-21

Feminists are simply rebels, following the steps of Jezebel and are miserable, self-centered, self-serving people, without exception. They are wounded and taking their anger out on men instead of examining their own hearts. Jezebel is equivalent to Judas who betrayed the Son of God. Women are to be virtuous help mate/wives to their husbands and “keepers at home” and bear children, and teach the younger WOMEN …. etc See Titus 2:1-5 and 1 Timothy 2:9-15 and 1 Peter 3:1-7. Truly God fearing women are the only truly happy women on the earth and fulfilling what the LORD created them to do. They humbly follow Him order. Judgment day is on the way.

They attempt to use Galatians 3:28 to justify this rebellion. Let’s take a look.

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28

We are “all one” in equality and in justification and yet God created males and females with different roles. Men and women do not have the same roles. Nature reveals that. God made men and women to fulfill unique roles in the family and the church.

Equality in Christ is what Galatians 3:28 is speaking of, NOT the specific roles our Maker designated for men and women – in the FAMILY and in the CHURCH … “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28

Men and women are equivalent in salvation – neither male nor female – and yet, God designed men and women with different and unique ROLES. Women are not to lead men – the church, period. We must obey God’s order – do things HIS way and not our own. If we don’t, we will unleash hell’s Jezebellian fury on the church as we see in the church at Thyatira where “the depths of Satan” is associated with this allowance of Jezebel to function (Rev. 2:20-23).

Women are seen doing much ministry in the New Testament but not leading. Did Jesus choose even one female as His twelve? No. God gave us specific instructions concerning the role of men and women. His Word is final authority.

The problem is not abusive men or controlling women – the source of our problems is rooted in our own sin and refusal to die to self, deny self, take up the cross and follow Christ as He clearly and repeatedly prescribed. When we do we will gladly follow the divine order given to us by God in His blessed Word.

EQUALITY in salvation, not ROLES (Gal. 3:28) …. has anyone every pointed you to what Jesus warned us about in Rev. 2:20-24? Do you know what the Son of God calls “the depths of Satan”? Allowing women to function outside the role God ordained her to function in is rebellion, brings great destruction, and is the very “depths of Satan” himself …. Anyone violating God’s order will be judged and this is precisely why He judged Thyatira (Revelation 2:20-23). Of Jezebel and all who allow, enable, and participate in such perversion of the roles of men and women, Jesus says He is going to “kill her children with death.” (Revelation 2:20-24) Anybody want to argue with the Son of God?

The kingdom of God is not about high and mighty you or me.

Anyone violating God’s order will be judged and this is precisely why He judged Thyatira (Revelation 2:20-24). Of Jezebel and all who allow, enable, and participate in such perversion of the roles of men and women, Jesus says He is going to “kill her children with death.” (Revelation 2:20-24) Anybody want to argue with the Son of God?
This is NOT at all a matter of EQUALITY but rather a matter of roles … God is no fool – He didn’t make men and women for the same purposes … Have you noticed that men and women are different? Think there was a reason for this? WHY O WHY then would He have bothered to create that first beautiful lady if there were not a specific, unique purpose in His plan for her to fulfill????? And what does God’s Word tell us about the woman’s purpose? Is it to rise up and be in control, to be boisterous, yelling at the enemy, wearing armor and fighting? Is she a man or the “weaker vessel” to be submitted to God and therefore His order which is Christ as the Head over the man and the man as head over the woman? (to protect her) 1 Peter 3:7

“But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.” 1 Corinthians 11:3

A Major Principle of the Cross

principle of cross

Although I have a power or a right against someone else, I choose not to exercise that power or right in order to benefit that person, especially a person who DOES NOT DESERVE IT.  This is a major principle of the cross.

Philippians 2:5-11.  Although Christ was co-equal with His Father, He did not exploit that but rather gave it up and came down into incarnation and death in order that we, who did not deserve it, might be saved.

1 Cor 9:4-18.  Paul’s refusal to accept financial support was a status-denying, others-regarding love.  This is the “Law to (or ‘of’) Christ” or Law of Love.  Gal 6:2.

1 Cor 10:21-33 @v24.  Paul was freed from the law, but re-enslaved himself in order to free others.  “Not seeking one’s own” is a rights- renouncing others-oriented love.
