TWO INDUBITABLE FACTORS OF MARITAL SUCCESS (3)

3)            Is it wrong for the woman to show love to the husband? The Bible has the answer in Titus 2:4 “That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,” only that this love is not the type given as the husband’s duty. This ‘love’ is not agapē, it is philandros (fiyl’-an-d̮ros): ‘1. (literally) fond of man. 2. (actively) affectionate to one’s husband (as a wife).’ It is the type of love that draws the woman constantly towards her husband. Many wives would rather act the hard-to-get script by staying away from their husbands!

                The reason why the woman happens to be the recipient of this hupotasso cautionary counsel of Divinity takes us back to the Eden commission of the original sin. Being the first to taste of the fruit of Satanism, she is very likely to see her husband as one beneath her as carnal propensity will allow. The only way to tame her satanic exposure is to bring her, as the wife, under the subjection of the man. God is so wise! Amen!

                The hatred borne out of cultural differences does not, in any way, have any place or any role to play in the Divine instituted matrimony. You cannot tell me you are a Christian and allow mundane culture to garb you in a benighted colouration. Galatians 3:27-28 “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28) There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” Does the LORD God see you as an Ekiti man from Yoruba land or Kalahari indigene of Botswana? Does God see you as an Indian or a Caucasian; or does He prefer the Chinese to an American when it comes to soteriological matter? Romans 3:29 “Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:” for the Jews and Gentiles – any nation other than the Jews of Israel – make up the entire peoples of the world. We, the Christians, the Bible states categorically, are all one in Christ Jesus. Faith in God’s word overcomes all problematic issues.

                I, honestly, do understand the known medical hara-kiri involved in the marriage of a courting couple having genotypes of AS and SS or worst still SS and SS, considering a couple of AS and AS. Will I advise medically incongruity of a couple not to marry or to marry? Truly, my advice will be, “Are you sure of what you’re plunging yourself into? Because the danger is giving birth to children who’ll ask you why you brought them into this world only to suffer from periodic excruciating pains from childhood till the day of death.” I will not tell them it is wrong and scripturally sinful to enter into marriage. What if they have enough faith to avert the abnormality of genotypes for every offspring that comes from the wife’s womb? What if in the course of their marriage they are able to pray themselves into their change from abnormal genotypes? Will the man of God who had vehemently opposed the union not be seen as one having no knowledge of what the LORD God is capable of doing and who also is deficient in faith, without which no man pleases the LORD God? What if their conjugation has no intention of bearing children, but just to partake in God’s institution, to show forth an adumbration of Christ and His body? Theologically, carnal sentimentalism shoved aside, will such couple be stupid idiots to enter into marriage? Most definitely, I think not!    

                 Let us look at a principle in the scripture that says, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33). Seeking has an attraction of zealousness. Righteous seeking invokes the assistance of Divine operation. The Creator says to the fallen Adamic couple, “Love and submit,” and if they should adhere strictly to this twin instructions, most definitely, God will avail them everything that enhances blissfulness of marriage. Why? They, having done the will of the Most High, have opened the gates of heaven to receive Divine beneficent participation in that marriage. 

                What is killing marriages is the inability to maintain marital orderliness. There is no way the man will love the wife, who diligently submits to her husband and the Devil will be victorious in his ophidian meandering into the marriage. Lucifer cannot succeed in playing his game of Satanism in the home of orderliness. Take care of the two main ingredients of divine counsel, and it is, “Hallelujah”, day in day out from the lips of the family members.

                Spiritual acquittal and discharge takes place only when one is born again. To be born again, say, with all your heart, this simple prayer:
