More often now that I reserve the depths of my emotions against external trends. I have to restrain myself from expressing how I stand Biblically on the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman when it all ratified by man's court more than two weeks ago. For me, it all comes down to Genesis1:27 KJV which says," So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them and then in Genesis 2:22 KJV says that And the rib, which the Lord had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. Finally, in Mark:10:9 KJV which says: "What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder." I put my heart & soul to this gospel.
You can't beat the truth and the purity and the power of God's word. We may want to modify, add or make changes to suit our flesh and we can temporarily but not without eternal punishment of our actions. Every deed or thought without repentance will cost your entry to "the streets of gold." You will deny yourself that reunion with your loved ones who have gone before you with the Lord and more importantly, you will forever regret in agony why you had turned deaf, blind, mute and numb to the heart of God's calling...?
John 14:6 KJV; Jesus saith unto Thomas, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the father, but by me."
You see I come from a very traditional reign of marriage that upholds "till death do us part." My parents were married for 55 years. My dad died in 2005 and my mom never remarried. My siblings, & most of my relatives and friends that I have still are together. I love that commitment & the solidarity. I love what that stands for--love for God.
In Isaiah 40:8 says that"The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. And then again illuminated in Peter 1:25; But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you,"
There you go...my sentiments are real. I look up unto that cross where Jesus Christ bore all our sins.If there's one thing I truly believe is that we don't know when He calls us home. What would the realms of Philosophy, Psychology and other Social Sciences & Social Media be in your eternal destination if you lose your soul?
I am very much aware of the inundations of what this world offers: happiness is contingent to your circumstances, situations and what you allow yourself to anchor. But the joy of knowing and living with the spirit of the truth of God's word is unparalleled. Once you got it, you don't want to lose it. You want to share it.
And it's been my joy sharing...
