Marriage is the first institution ordained by God. This is a fact, however, since the beginning of time, right from the garden, it has been tumultuous.
There has always been issues in the union of marriage and there will always be! We pray for understanding, commitment, determination to make it work, and all, but if it does not work, that does not strip you of the glory of God or your salvation!
I am so happy that the greatest influencer of our faith – Jesus Christ himself, and Paul the Apostle were never married! Yet, they laid down for us the will of God. Neither was Martin Luther until much later!
I am sure glad the woman by the well married 5 husbands and some, yet she met with Christ Jesus one on one! And Anna? She died after witnessing the dedication of our Lord Jesus in the temple. She was childless after living as a widow in the temple all her life!
To all then, who have built doctrines, ministry roundabout marriage and motherhood, equating Salvation with marriage, or should I say to marital bliss, even if it’s make believe, stand back from your high horse.
Jesus came to save our soul! You can be married, live in hell here on earth and end up in eternal darkness, vice versa!
Anyone know Peninnah? It sure would be great to live in eternal bliss from here to there though, don’t get me wrong! This is the ideal! Every soul craves for such! Heavenly right?
It is time to put aside all these divisive doctrine, meant to classify, discourage, and limit people, sowing discord where there should be harmony!
I dare you in all honesty to examine your heart! Are you convinced in there that being married is the ultimate mark of purity, salvation, holiness, usefulness in the kingdom of God? And in the hand of the creator of heaven and earth?
I have so much to say!

What joy it is to bask in joy and love of a redeemer that went through hell to save you! Jesus took special care to fashion you after His image and then you got corrupted by the wicked one, but for His love’s sake He came in the flesh and dwelt amongst mortals, suffered rejection, reproach and every evil you can think of to bring you out of filth into cleanness, from darkness into light, from the path to hell to heaven bound.

The Joy of Forgiveness
A Psalm of David. A Contemplation.
32 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
Whose sin is covered.
2 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity,
And in whose spirit there is no deceit.
3 When I kept silent, my bones grew old
Through my groaning all the day long.
4 For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me;
My vitality was turned into the drought of summer. Selah
5 I acknowledged my sin to You,
And my iniquity I have not hidden.
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”
And You forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah
6 For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You
In a time when You may be found;
Surely in a flood of great waters
They shall not come near him.
7 You are my hiding place;
You shall preserve me from trouble;
You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah
8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will guide you with My eye.
9 Do not be like the horse or like the mule,
Which have no understanding,
Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle,
Else they will not come near you.
10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked;
But he who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him.
11 Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous;
And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

I read it somewhere that “the world needs preachers who will preach that hell is still hot, that heaven is still real, that sin is still wrong, that the bible is God’s word and that Jesus is the only way of salvation”.
Friends, I also want to let you know that God loves you so much that He gave His only begotten son Jesus Christ to die a gruesome death on the cross for you and I. John 3:16 He died so that you and I will have abundant life. Isn’t that something?
Will you accept His love today? Freely! Will you invite Christ into your heart to abide with you. Let Him be your friend in that solitary place you are right now. That void, that something that isn’t there, but you don’t know what it is! That is Christ Jesus – the lover of your soul, your besties! Invite Him into your space today, open up your hearts to the King of glory. Let Him bring some shine into your life. Let your soul be flooded with peace and joy. Let Jesus in, open up your heart.
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me,because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners, and recovery of sight for the blind,to set the oppressed free,19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor”
As my Lord declared these words over two thousand years ago, so do I declare today. The spirit of the living God has and is indeed risen on me. I bring you good tidings of repentance, salvation and hope of eternal life in Jesus Christ.
You see friends, I have been saved and preserved for a time like this. The world as we know it is full of wickedness and our Lord being merciful has saved you and I and preserved us to do his work on earth. We were saved for a purpose, to bring the good tidings of salvation and thereby depopulate the kingdom of darkness Matthew 28:18. This world is full of darkness and the love of many saints have indeed waxed cold. We have become self seeking and lost sight of the purpose for which we have been saved, called, chosen and commission. Neither cold nor warm.
We are to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything the Lord Jesus had commanded us. He did not just send us but also gave us power to trample upon every works of wickedness, not only that but assured us of His companionship for eternity.
Is every member of our families saved? How about our community, city, state and so on. Do we care enough to stand in the gap for them? Our husbands, wives, children, parent, uncles, aunts, friends, acquaintances, colleagues and so on. We have been charged to make disciples of all nations and starting from where we are I believe is a good idea. Charity begins at home. Is all in our congregation, Churches born again? Have we even bothered to inquire of the Lord and stand in the gap for spiritual awakening in our Churches. It is time we stop playing Church and pray the kingdom of God on earth.
Jesus is with us folks and has empowered us to do that which is of his great pleasure. For everyone reading this blog, would you take a moment to examine your ways. Do you have a relationship with the Lord Jesus? Are you crucified with Christ? Are you seeking first the kingdom of God on earth? Are you eternity bound?
It does not really matter if you believe in eternity or not! Friends, eternity is real and only those that have been washed in the blood of the lamb and are living for Christ will be there. We are saved by grace not by works less any one should boast. You cannot do anything to earn eternity. Human righteousness is like filthy rags before the Most High God. The only way is through faith in the birth and death of Jesus Christ John 14:6. He came and died to reconcile humanity with God. Can you picture it? Every single one of us beings were born in sin and therefor alienated from our maker John 3:16. Jesus Christ came and died in our place to redeem us and reconcile us back to God. There is no other way by which we can be saved except by the appropriation of the precious blood of Jesus Christ.
Therefore, let us come to God through the blood of Jesus Christ. Let us humbly ask for forgiveness and forsake all sins that easily besets us and live in sync with heaven. Let us today confess the Lordship of Jesus over our life and seek His kingdom on earth.
Jesus loves you so much this I know. It does not matter where you have been, what you have done. Are you ready this moment to be true to yourself? Then come to the Everlasting Father through Jesus Christ his son. He is waiting to receive you into the kingdom of His dear son.
Embrace life and live. Accept Jesus today as your Lord and Savior. Read John 1:12, John 8:11, John 1:29 John 6:37
