From the above Bible passage we can see that Marriage institute was originated by God for a mature man and woman. Unfortunately; our modern day civilization world had gradually turning the hands of the clock backward. One of the major reasons we are faced with crime, violence and rapes is just this point we are about to study. Sometime ago, a Lady came for counseling concerning who she intended to marry. She was told to be prayerful concerning the Man asking her hand in marriage. She got annoyed and told the man of God that she had over stayed moreover she had prayed over it and no going back. Few months after the wedding, she was stopped from going to Church, restricted from friends and her midnight prayers. Eventually she became a pushing bag of her husband. Two year after one of her left eye had gone blind; her angry husband beat her one day till blood was gushing from her eye.
What is Marriage:-
1.A relationship between two matured people.
2.Is coming together to fulfill God divine purpose, assignment and plans
3.A biblical social union between two opposite sex not the same sex.
Although some people still love to believe in a lie, yet the standard of God cannot change. Some pastors/Ministers are seriously into match making; taking over from the Holy Spirit. For a marriage to work you need the help of the Holy Spirit.
What are the modern day marriages?
1.SEPARATE & DIVORCE:-It came as a result of fall men not God´s plans. Nowadays, men and women cannot tolerate one another short-coming. Mat 19:3-8 ¨3 The Pharisees also came to Him, testing Him, and saying to Him, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife forjust any reason?”4 And He answered and said to them,“Have you not read that He who made[a]themat the beginning ‘made them male and female,’[b]5 and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?[c]6 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” 7 They said to Him, “Why then did Moses command to give a certificate of divorce, and to put her away?” 8 He said to them,“Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. The percentage of separate & divorce people in our generation is so numerous to the extent of affecting our world and the unborn Children.
2.DIVORCE UNLIMITED:- Those are the people that have undergone divorcement more than once without getting the desire satisfaction or happiness even in their present marriage. Convenience has replaced conviction Ezekiel 16:35-38¨35 ‘Now then, O harlot, hear the word of theLord!36 Thus says the LordGod: “Because your filthiness was poured out and your nakedness uncovered in your harlotry with your lovers, and with all your abominable idols, and because of the blood of your children which you gave to them,37 surely, therefore, I will gather all your lovers with whom you took pleasure, all those you loved,andall those you hated; I will gather them from all around against you and will uncover your nakedness to them, that they may see all your nakedness.38 And I will judge you as women who break wedlock or shed blood are judged; I will bring blood upon you in fury and jealousy¨ They got married based on what they enjoyed; once that desire goes they seek for another means. Marriage is a college without graduation; you must be able to cope whether good season or bad season.
3.CONCUBINAGE TYPE 1:- those are people living together not legally married. Some called ¨Try by error method¨. Unfortunately, we are living at the age of the world that does things like Sodom and Gomorrah. God forbid fornication talkless of sexual perversion. As a child of God who shouldn´t give your body to the one whom you intended to marry before your wedding. A lady came for prayers as a result of joblessness and failure at the edge of Breakthrough. During prayer the Holy Spirit said l should asked her whom she was sleeping with. She replied; my intended. She was counseled and gave her life to Christ; the boy left her to another lady who since to be her friend. In Gen 38:6-10 who will see a man call ONAN so, are so generation.
A.THE ONAN GENERATION:- Onan means pain, iniquity and force. The hit and run lovers, they want sexual pleasure without commitment and responsibility. They go about chasing ladies & married women to satisfy their sexual urge but not for marriage.
B.THE AMNON GENERATION:- Amnon means Faithful & truth, only in the name not in character(s). These are rapist who takes advantage of virgin ladies and women who had challenges. They impregnated ladies & women everywhere but never accepting the responsibility; they rather push the woman away or denied the child. 2 Sam 13:1-14, Deut 22:25-29.
C.BRAZEN HARLOTRY:- This kind of marriage are common among the rich people. Where the rich man son gets married to the rich man daughter based on some contracts. The real love is absent from both parties because it´s a commercial arrangement marriage, the kingdom value are not considered. Consequently the marriage will produce brazen harlotry where the woman pays the man for cheap sex. Eze 16:30-34
4.CONCUBINAGE TYPE 2:- This is an inferior system of marriage. Extra marital affairs where man/woman found themselves in a lock jam as a result of transfer from work, lateness in childbearing, sickness, long distance or changing of environment. 2 Sam 3:7- King Saul has a concubine that caused problem between them. 1 Chronicle 3:1-end. Some women & men are married still sleeping around with other people.
5.POLYGAMY:- The woman that practice it is called ¨Polyardrist¨ while man is called ¨Polygamist¨. There are countries that practice such devilish act, where woman married to man husband.
6.THE ABSURD, ABNORMAL & GIVEN OVER MARRIAGE:- These are those with vile passion. This generation is going deeper into the sin of Sodom & Gomorrah, the acts that provoked God wrath. This is the group of gay, homosexual, lesbians, incest etc. Father sleeping with his daughter, children of the same parent giving birth to each other, man marrying man. A party was held in Nigeria some year ago; the celebrant was dancing with two women. The same man impregnated both mother and daughter and some people still sat down celebrating with them. What an abomination. Let see what the bible says 1 cor 6:9 ¨9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals,[a]nor sodomites¨ Lev 18:21-27, Rom 1:24-32.
