Holy Christian Matrimony before Almighty God! Dedicated to and for my daughter Sandy

With traditional marriage being redefined almost every year, the latest rumored version will soon be defined by a set contracted length of time. So now a man's vows or should I say spouse, might be something like... I promise to love and hold you till our 10 year contract is up so help me dog. Hence the world is now on its many paths which all lead to marriage or should I say civil union. Therefore to help untangle the confusion I feel it necessary to reaffirm what biblical marriage is for true believers. For us who believe, marriage is between one man and one woman as it was in the beginning, Gen 1:27/28 (“So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it.) This a holy spiritual covenant (not religious), blessed by God in which the man and the woman become one, Gen 2:24 (“For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one”). And again in Matt 19:6 (“Since they are no longer two but one, let no one split apart what God has joined together."). There you have Holy Christian Matrimony before Almighty God! So just like everything else God created “Holy Matrimony” between a man and a woman has a reason and purpose under heaven. Eccl 3:2 (“There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven-- a time to be born, a time to marry, a time to die, and a time for judgment..... Nevertheless true believers who participate in Holy Matrimony before God need to realize that they are not immune to the temptations and built up resentments that can destroy both marriage and the family unit. So everyday, married believers need to get on their knees and ask God to help them both (husband and wife) to forgive one another and be who they need to be as God intended loving & supporting each other as ONE. If you can do this, then just as believers cannot be separated from the love of God, nothing in this world will be able to tear your marriage apart, till death do you part.... The Christian Rap band “Group 1 Crew” has seemed to capture what Holy Matrimony means for true believers in their rap song “Mr. and Mrs.”

Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on...

Just like the words love and belief (words we take so much for granted), trust is also a word of action. Something that God has to continually remind me of, and I need to put in practice.  Because as much as its in our nature as Born again Christians to want to bring the lost to the lord, and play a part in their salvation and rescue, ultimately it is the work of the Holy Spirit that must prepare and draw them to the light.  And finally, almost sadly, it  is each persons own decision to accept and follow this most precious of jewels (Jesus Christ the Rock of Salvation), or their decision to discard it for something flashy in that sea of broken  jagged and sharp glass, the world has to offer.  All we can do as believers after planting that seed, is to trust God who will continue to work on their heart & in their lives providing every opportunity for conversion until its too late.  We as believers must "press-on" as there are just too many others out there hungry for the truth of the Gospel "good news", that Jesus Christ is The way, The Truth, and The life!

Jason Roy of the band Building 429, shares his testimony

Jason Roy tells his story about despite being brought up in a broken family, and separated from his father at age 5, how the Lord worked in his life. How God inspired him and his music to spread the Gospel, heal his father's addictions and dedicate his own son to the Lord by teaching him early about God's word.... ("Fix the word of God in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them in your head. Then teach them to your children, talking about it with them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road with them, when you lie down and when you get up with them. Write the word of God on the door-frames of your houses and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land of the Lord") Deut 11:18.

Lauren Daigle speaks about keeping our eyes on Jesus

Singer songwriter Lauren Daigle gives perspective to how that in trying to manage our everyday needs and activities in this life, we don't ignore the most important part that gives this life true meaning, peace, and abundance. 
(“My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. Finally, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”) - Jesus Christ.
 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand before God. Eph 6:13

The President openly opposed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaking to Congress and the American People last week about the terrible truth and consequences of ongoing one-sided negotiations with Iran. In addition the Administration publicly welcomed left-wing opposition leaders in recent Israeli elections that would bring about a new left-wing Israeli government and prime minister funded by rich Arab interest. Neither of those scenarios played out the way the Administration would have liked. So now the backlash by the executive branch we have been waiting for is about to happen in a big way as explained so simply by Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice. As a mere US citizen Jay has fought several Supreme Court battles to protect our constitutional rights and religious freedoms in this country, much more then I can say for any politician democratic or republican. PLEASE listen and consider signing the petition at the bottom of the new cast link which just started. The petition to dissuade the President from unilateral action that would throw Israel under the proverbial bus at the UN potentially forcing Israel to give up borders and be charged with war crimes. This new petition is crucial and No donation is necessary although even $5 is a small price to pay for this type representation. Support the United States by supporting Israel, the only democracy in the middle east, our only and best ally in the that region, and the apple of God's eye.

I will make of you Israel a great nation, and I will bless you with abundant increase of favors and make your name famous and distinguished, and you will be a blessing dispensing good to others.  And I will bless those who bless you who confer prosperity or happiness upon you and curse him who curses or uses insolent language toward you; in you will all the families and kindred of the earth be blessed and by you they will bless themselves. Genesis 12:2-3(AMP)

Worldly business is a snare to us, when it hinders us from serving God, and getting good to our souls.

So many of us spend our lives with evermore and new activities thinking that we can find fulfillment or at least distract and somehow offset the weight of stored up sin on our souls and conscious that is at the heart of our fallen problem. A problem that just keeps building with every bit of increasing denial against God's written word while embracing what the world has to offer without God.
Brother Francis Chan in his video below helps us hit the nail on the head, that our time here on earth is meant for one thing and one thing only. One chance to recognize Almighty God's great love for us which is self evident in his planned creation, the human family structure, and why he gave his only Son Jesus Christ to pay the price for our detestable sins and beliefs.....*NOTE please view below video link from the beginning manually as some YouTube video now auto-skip the introduction, go figure..

COME QUICKLY LORD JESUS: As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, His disciples came to him privately and said, “Tell us, when will all this happen? What sign will signal your return and the end of the world?" Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. I will gather the people of Israel from among the nations. I will bring them home to their own land from the places where they have been scattered. I will unify them into one nation (*1948) on the mountains of Israel. I will make Israel like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. And there will be strange signs in the sun, moon, and stars. And here on earth the nations will be in turmoil, perplexed by the roaring seas and strange tides. All these are the beginning of birth pains. Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of multiplied lawlessness, the increase of wickedness and iniquity on the earth, the love of most will grow cold, but those who stand firm to the end will be saved. “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the saved those days will be shortened. At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even those who are saved. See, I have told you ahead of time. When the Son of God returns, it will be like it was in the day's of Noah and the Ark. In those days, the people enjoyed banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat and then the flood came and destroyed them all. “And the world will be as it was in the days of Lot who lived in Sodom. People went about their daily business—eating and drinking, buying and selling, farming and building— until the morning Lot was rescued out of Sodom. Then fire and burning sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
“Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that the end is near, right at the door. Truly I tell you, the generation that sees these things will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words (Bible*) will never pass away.


Without God, as fallen and broken individuals since the garden of Eden, the flawed and blind decisions we make in this life may yield pleasure for a season, but will eventually lead to more and greater brokenness, which will also negatively impact the lives of our children and even the lives of our Grandchildren. But taking the steps to becoming reunited and restored to our original status with God through the sacrificial blood of Jesus Christ, gives anyone who embraces it and truly believes, a brand new heart, renewed mind, and supernatural holy spirit that is overflowing with eternal life and overcomes all the powers of darkness in this world. Because without a Christ centered life, we are all slaves to the Prince and power of darkness to practice sin as a lifestyle that eventually leads to eternal death and separation from God and all that is good.. No matter how grim this sounds and no matter how true it is in your life, God has made a way for YOU to a new beginning of freedom (rebirth) in and through Jesus Christ...LISTEN TO THE SOUND of God calling, confess your sins and declare Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior while it is still "today," so that you can stop being deceived by sin and hardened against God.

JESUS SAID... There is a path which seems right to a man, But its end result is the way of death...“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. If you had really known me, you would know who Father God is...Look, I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy (Satan), and you can walk among snakes and scorpions (demons end evil spirits) and crush them. Nothing will injure you (spiritually or mentally) Prvbs 16:25/Jn 14:6/Lk10:19
