Do You Have To Marry To Prove A Point? (8)
The ‘help meet for him’
(…continues from part 7…)
8) Forbidding us to lie is the Ninth Commandment; he cannot tell you to lie. Your husband cannot decide to have sex with you through your anus. It is not any different from sodomitical lust of Satanism as Paul makes us understand in Romans 1:27, “And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” The husband’s authority is within the limits of the Word of God.
Channel, virtuously, all the energetic help of your femininity towards the meet of your husband’s desires, as long as those intents of his bourne are not in direct antagonism to the express Word of God. To aid your official role as the help meet for him, submission is the key for the perfection of your uxorial mission. Every one of the disciples was involved in a business or carrier. They forsook all to perfect their walk with the Master – submission. How can any wife claim to be the help meet for the husband without the required submission? Only a Jezebel of a wife jettisons submission.
Have we ever wondered why the first name given to each of the pristine parents is Adam? Before the unfortunate commission of sin, when the head of Eden Garden saw her he named her Woman: “because,” according to Scripture, “she was taken out of Man,” quite apropos. After the occurrence of the original sin, the head of man looked at the fallen wife and named her again, this time, “Eve.” Why? All living earth humans, including the Incarnation of Christ, must come from her; indeed germane. Twice she was named by her husband; pointing to his superintendency over the wife. But the Scripture says, “Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created” (Genesis 5:2). God gave each one of the first couple the same name: Adam. Why? They are expected to replicate on earth what goes on in heaven. In heaven, the Members of the Trinity agree in all things, believe in all things and know all things. The only way this can be perfectly actuated is via the wife’s obedient submission and definitely, the husband’s love to dress and keep the home. Each one of the first nine couch of “man” found in Scripture, from Genesis 1:26 through Gen 1:27; Gen 2:5; Gen 2:7; Gen 2:8; Gen 2:15; Gen 2:16; Gen 2:18 to Genesis 2:22 is the Hebraic ‘âdâm (aw-dawm’): ‘ruddy, that is, a human being (an individual or the species, mankind.’ In Genesis 2:23 the “Man” is a different ‘ı̂ysh (eesh): ‘man, male (in contrast to woman, female); specifically husband.’ As ‘ı̂ysh, man has entered into the office of the headship of the marriage.
Marriage is a missionary work. It brings heaven down to the earth. In the empyrean assizes, bearing witness, there are three in the Godhead; and on earth, representing the unity of the Trinity is the Christian marriage where the twain (male and female created He them) exhibit love and submission according to the will of Jesus, the Grand Groom of the Bride, the Church.
Don’t kill your marriage.
If you, the born again husband, should for one second, hold back the duty of love towards your wife, you are masquerading as a bastard. Try to imagine the resultant effect if Jesus Christ would not bring to consummation, the agapē of the Father’s heart: soteriology would be a mere mirage. The husband who will not adorn his wife with love is definitely an Antichrist. You must love your wife! Honestly, we do not seem to understand that our failure to appreciate the seriousness of marriage is the injection of ignorance by the unrelenting hard work of Satanism. Selah. We hardly remember that two things bring soteriological reality into actuation: the agapē of Jehovah, and the heart of submission on the part of the believing born again Christian. Let the husband and the wife ponder seriously on this facticity. Amen. If you are not making money to sustain the family – as the family provider –, something is terribly wrong with you.
Inexorably, a man who does not show love to her spouse has disqualified himself from being the husband. The woman, found wanting in obedience, has failed and cannot be said to be a help meet for him. You want to prove a point, pass the love and submission tests. Amen.
Marry according to God’s word
The home, and all that is necessary for its conduciveness, takes paramount importance. You can marry to prove a point if you are ready to do everything to build a good home. The home takes paramountcy even before all mundane and ecclesiastical responsibilities. Amen.
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!”
