He Has Magnified His Word, Psalm 138:2

Marriage Is God’s Divine Plan

Gen 2:25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.

Carl Wheat’s ABC’s (Acronym) of Forever Marriage stands for Absolute Love, Belonging Love, and Commitment Love integrated to form Forever Relationship. It is place to be real (naked) with one another and not be a shamed. It’s God’s will in every marriage that the couples love each other with an absorbing spiritual, emotional and physical attraction that continues to grow throughout their life time together. To add to the strong bond, no other love for God, family, friends etc. involves physical consummation, only in marriage is the love shared between a man and a woman as a special bond orchestrated by God for the right people at the right time.

The Godhead instituted marriage to be a true reflection of Christ as the groom and the church as His bride, and in marriage the relationship and roles are made clear. To distort or redefine it undermines the purpose of its existence. The primary reason for marriage is not how happy man can be but how God relates to His creation (humans) He has redeemed. So marriage requires a greater duty of us toward our spouses, it is God’s divine plan.
