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?
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.
Die. 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
