Divine Marriage: When God Joins A Man And A Woman Together
Do you have a divine marriage?
It is written,
“And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.”
Should we dare to tell the whole truth?
Often times, people fear to tell the whole truth when it goes against common convention. Also, there is a lot of demonic push back from the evil one when fundamental truths are set straight. However, if we are ever to become mature in Christ we must have the courage to plainly tell others what the Spirit is saying to this generation.
Christians have little understanding about true love. We, as it were, see through a glass darkly in many areas and the area of intimacy, Godly intimacy, is perhaps the most opaque of them all.
In the beginning God made Eve for Adam. She was taken out of him and then brought back to him to be his helpmate. God is the one who authored their relationship. It was a divine marriage.
We see other divine marriages in the Old Testament; Abraham and Sara, Issac and Rachael, Boaz and Ruth, and Joseph and Mary just to name a few. God authored and approved all these relationships. Through these unions God brought forth children that would bless nations. These marriages were more than mere physical unions for they were also spiritual unions that produced offspring that were born according to God’s plan.
What God hath put together
A divine marriage is when God puts two people together that He chooses to further His plan for the salvation of mankind. These are not random pairing but matches made through foreknowledge according to the wisdom of our Father. God blesses children born of such unions. Children conceived according to God’s will are born of His Spirit.
Other than accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior there is perhaps no other more important choice that we will make in this life than who you will wed. Our wife or husband will impact not only our usefulness to God but it will also influence, to a great extent, our growth in Him. Spouses, equally yoked according to the Spirit of God, have the opportunity to reach their full potential. Likewise, our seed conforms to God’s plan, therefore our children are blessed.
Does God have complete sovereignty over your life?
I ask you, if we are bought with a price and we are not our own, is the choice of whom we marry really up to us? Should not we allow God to led and guide us in every area of our lives? Marriage is one of the most critical decisions in our lives. Our choice of spouse cannot be entered into without the express leading and guidance of our Father.
God brings us together
So what does divine marriage mean in “real” life. First of all, it means that we must seek the will of the Holy Spirit for our choice of mates. Secondly it means that we must allow God to connect us with our future bride or husband and not just allow outward appearances or worldly attributes to be the determining factor. Beauty fades and fortunes change but a mate that God chooses will endure forever. Literally, we must pray and ask for God’s blessing on our choice of spouse. We have to trust our Fathers voice more than we trust our emotions and personal desires. God tries the hearts of men and women. Only our Father knows what we are made. The Holy Spirit is the only one qualified to give an accurate recommendation of who will be a proper fit in you life.
Love at first sight is God matchmaking
Do you know what “true love is?” True love is God match making. God draws people together through true love. True love is a spiritual connection not just physical attraction. God makes His will known through divine love which powerfully joins you together. True love is actually a taste of the first love of Eden and its power is legendary.
Seek your Fathers permission to wed
In the end, unless you receive permission from God above to wed you simple should not do it. Going against your Father’s will in this one area can cause you to deviate from His path in all others. Marrying unwisely may alter your eternal destiny. People, who are unequally yoked, may even lose their salvation: it is that serious.
In conclusion, seek a divine connection for your future mate. We must allow God to choose wisely for us when it comes to decided whom we will marry. Let your Father join you together in Divine Marriage so that no man will ever put you asunder. Amen.
