Do You Have To Marry To Prove A Point? (3)


High Priest
The husband is the priest of the family

The role of the husband is exactly like the high priest – represents the family before God.

3)            Number one criterion for marriage is making sure you are God’s adopted son, a born again Christian. Your intended choice of spouse must be born again. Both of you must have the evidence of speaking in tongues. You must make sure your intended spouse is not faking to be what he or she is not – very important. Number two, of equal necessity, is that the lady of your matrimonial choice must be ready to accept her responsibility to you, the head of the family about to be formed. You, as the wife to be, must be ready to support his family responsibly, spiritually and morally. If you do not agree with his goal as the head of the family, quietly withdraw yourself from his ambition.

Adam named all things

                Every name voiced by Adam to the animals of his environment met with divine acceptance. Adam the male is the oracle of the Creator. In his mouth dwells the mind of God. Remember that the Woman was brought to him, not the other way round; so, when it came to praise and worship of God in Eden, Adam the husband is the priest of the home. If, indeed, two heads are better than one then, there is not a doubt that the wife should have a say in the family administration, but the fact still remains that it should be according to the stand of the head of the family. The man, as the head of the family, rules the home. “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” (1Corinthians 11:3). This verse does not give arbitrary public headship to the male gender.

Jesus is the Head of the Church

Jesus is the head of the Church

                This verse is exclusively of the family. The word ‘head’ is kephalē (kef-al-ay’): ‘the head, both of men and often of animals. Metaphorically anything supreme, chief, prominent. By extension the point of origin or source.’ Does it not say, “For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man” (1Corinthians 11:8)? The Scriptural concordance of this verse finds its connectivity in, “she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man” Genesis 2:23. Now the definition of ‘Man’ is ‘ı̂ysh (eesh): ‘man, male (in contrast to woman, female); husband; champion.’ This is the very first time ‘ı̂ysh is used in the Bible.

Adam, the head of the first family.

Adam was created to head the family institution as Jesus heads the Church.

                As the champion of the family, every member follows his direction and steps. The wife is the first follower of the man. As the primary source of the Woman she must follow his instructions, or else, the word of God will not say, “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord” (Colossians 3:18). Hupotassō (hoop-ot-as’-so) is the Greek for ‘submit yourselves’ and it means: ‘to arrange under, to subordinate; to subject, put in subjection.’ What is the Bible saying? The wife should package herself and place it under her husband. This is why I am always advising ladies never to marry someone to whom they cannot submit their intellectualism and persons. Do not, for this simple reason, marry a fool; he will rule you in stupidity throughout your marital life.

                Colossians 3:18 says, “…as it is fit in the Lord,” meaning: your husband cannot tell you, the wife, not to pray, praise or worship God. But he is scripturally, as the head of the family, authorized to tell you to stop your career! That family home is God’s house, the Creator dwells with you, therefore, any disobedience as far as the LORD is concerned, is an affront to the Author of the marriage institution. When the wife decides to have control of the family, she is wickedly changing the divine order of the institution; she is not different from Jezebel. Jezebel was both a princess and a priestess of Baal worship. Her father was Ethbaal, or Ithobal, king of Sidon and priest of Astarte. Ethbaal had murdered Phelles his predecessor. You cannot marry outside your Christian faith.

Be Christ’s Bride; get born again.

                Getting born again is a conscious effort on the part of an individual. Get born again. Say this sinner’s prayer.

“Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”
