God's Sword of Truth - The Word
By The Holy Spirit's Disciple, Raymond Laginess
One sign of the last days that Christ gave us was that love would wax cold. Many marriages are being destroyed by flesh and pride. Satan is having great results in this area by destroying family relations and homes. As time goes on there shall be more divorces, many more. Every union that is not blessed by God and does not have Christ in it, will not last. Marriages between older people will grow cold and loveless. They will stay together because they do not believe in divorce, but in their hearts they wish they could get out of it. They are only existing in their marriages. They are miserable and unhappy. Each day to them is combat. They become argumentative, selfish, and full of pride. Most of these married people will have a hard time finding Christ in their lives. They may have a knowledge of God or a belief in one type of denomination, but even this shall not help them. Satan has a firm hold on them. These people have all kinds of hang-ups in life. They are in spiritual decay. They are without hope. A lot of these folks look for death as a rest from the world, in fact, they shall face an eternally dark, painful and horrible hellfire.
If you are getting married, be sure both of you are Christians, and your marriage will be blessed of God. It will be a union brought together by Him. You see all marriages are not of God. God does not bless marriages of non-Christian souls or of non Christian religions. Most marriages are of man and the carnal flesh. In unions of Satan and sex there can be no lasting love. These end up cheating on one another, or showing no respect for one another, and in time, divorce. This type of marriage is made of the world and flesh.
In a Christian marriage, each must give one hundred percent of his time in pleasing the other. You must put Christ first, your spouse second, children next, and yourself last. You must learn to do all for Christ, no matter what. If you do something to help your partner or spouse, do it for Christ and your reward will be in heaven. You can never lose in this life, if you do it for the Lord. You always win with the Lord, and He blesses the marriage, and each person ends up trying to do more of the other to gain the Lord's reward. You cannot outdo the Lord in blessings. Always seek the glory of the Lord and heaven. This is where your heart should be and your bank of riches. You cannot beat the interest, you collect forever.
