“Soul Mate? – 201”…Blog. [2/?]

“Soul Mate? – 201”…Blog. [2/?]

*** (Hebrews 13:4) Let marriage be kept honorable in every way; and the marriage bed undefiled. For God will judge; those who commit sexual sins; especially those who commit Adultery.

*** (Deuteronomy 23:21) When thou shall vow a vow unto the LORD thy God; you shall not slack to pay it: for the LORD thy God will surely require it of you; and it would be Sin in thee.

*** (Ephesians 5:17) Therefore do not be unwise; but understand what the will of the Lord is.

*** (Mark 3:32-to-35) And the crowd sat about Him [Jesus]; and they said to Him, Behold; Your mother and Your brothers are outside seeking for You.
(Mark 3:33) And He [Jesus] answered them, saying; Who is My mother, or My brothers?
(Mark 3:34) And He looked around on those who sat about Him; and said, Behold My mother and My brothers!
(Mark 3:35) For whoever does the will [Word] of God; the same is My brother and My sister and My mother.

*** (Luke 11:27-28) And it happened as He [Jesus] spoke these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice and said to Him; Blessed is the womb that bore You; and the breasts which You have sucked.
(Luke 11:28) But He [Jesus’ said, No; = rather, = blessed are they who; hear the Word of God; and keep it.


In some areas of the middle east… marriages were arranged by the parents! Here in the west… we ‘pick & choose’ our own mate. Based on the amount of divorces & remarriages [50%] … that is not a very good human system. Surely you would ‘Not’ investments or keep… your money in a Bank… that would possible give you; “Only a ‘50%’ Return”… or would ‘You’…? Perhaps MANY… are looking for Love… in all the Wrong Places…? Differences in home life; geographic locations; economic status or lack thereof; and “ALL” those ‘Other Contributing Factors’… make the decision to Marry; “A Difficult One!” MOST have given themselves… ‘Sexually’… to another. Those repeated… “Un-Scriptural Violations of God’s Holy Word”… leaves one ‘Scared Emotionally!’ With enough Scaring… “MOST” will just Live Together = “Without Marriage!” Do you realize that only 40 years ago it was called… “Shacking UP?” Now the term … ‘Domestic Partner.’ The language has been ‘Changed to Accommodate’… “SIN/SINS!” ‘Once’ what was called… “Holy Matrimony”… is now just a “Phony Show!” The ‘White Wedding Gown’… was to signify “Virginal Purity”…! Does society even know what that ‘Means’…?

*** (1Corinthains 6:18-19-20) Keep on running away from sexual immorality. Any other sin that a person commits is outside his body; but the person who sins sexually; sins against his own body.
(1Cor 6:19) You know that your body is a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit; Who is in you; Whom you have received from God; don't you? You do not belong to yourselves,
(1Cor 6:20) because; you were bought for a price. Therefore; glorify God with your bodies.

*** (Luke 6:46) Why do you keep calling Me [Jesus] ‘Lord, Lord,’ = but don't do what I [Jesus] tell you?

*** (James 1:22) Keep on being Doers of the Word; and Not merely hearers; who Deceive themselves.

*** (Matthew 7:21-22-23) NOT Everyone = who says to Me [Jesus], Lord! Lord! Shall enter the kingdom of Heaven; but he who does the will [Word] of My Father in Heaven.
(Matt 7:22) “MANY” = will say to Me [Jesus] in that day; Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works?
(Matt 7:23) And then I [Jesus] will say to them = I never knew you! = Depart from Me, those working lawlessness [iniquity]!

“In a ‘Relationship’ – 101”…Blog.

What do ‘You’ do… “IF” you want to get Married…? That is a Tough Question!

*** (James 1:5-6-7) Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God; Who gives to everyone generously without a rebuke; and it will be given to him.
(Jas 1:6) But he must ask in faith; without any doubts; for the one who has doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.
(Jas 1:7) Such a person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.

*** (James 4:3) You ask and receive not; because you ask amiss; that you may ‘spend’ it upon your lusts.

*** (Psalms 37:4) Delight yourself also in Jehovah the LORD; and He shall give you the desires of your heart.

*** (Luke 22:40-41-42) And when He [Jesus] was at the place’ He said to them; Pray that you do not enter into temptation.
(Luke 22:41) And He was withdrawn from them about a stone's throw. And He kneeled down and prayed,
(Luke 22:42) saying, Father [God]; if You are willing, remove this cup from Me. Yet not My will; but Yours be done.

*** (Hebrews 10:36-to-39) For you have need of patience, so that after you have done the will of God you might receive the promise.
(Heb 10:37) For “yet a little while; and He [Jesus] Who shall come will come and will not delay.”
(Heb 10:38)  Now, “the Just shall live by faith. But if he draws back; My soul shall have no pleasure in him.”
(Heb 10:39) But we are not of those withdrawing to destruction; but of those who believe to the preserving of the soul.

*** (1Corinthains 7:27-to-35) Have you been bound to a wife? Stop trying to get free. Have you been freed from a wife? Stop looking for a wife.
(1Cor 7:28) But if you do get married, you have not sinned. And if a virgin gets married, she has not sinned. However, these people will experience distress in the flesh, and I want to spare you that.
(1Cor 7:29) This is what I mean, brothers: The time has been shortened. From now on, those who have wives should live as though they had none,
(1Cor 7:30) and those who mourn as though they did not mourn; and those who rejoice as though they were not rejoicing, and those who buy as though they did not own a thing,
(1Cor 7:31) and those who use the things in the world; as though they were not dependent on them. For the world in its present form is passing away.
(1Cor 7:32) I want you to be free from concerns. An unmarried man is concerned about the affairs of the Lord, that is, about how he can please the Lord.
(1Cor 7:33) But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world, that is, about how he can please his wife,
(1Cor 7:34) and so his attention is divided. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the affairs of the Lord: so that she may be holy in body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world; that is, about how she can please her husband.
(1Cor 7:35) I'm saying this for your benefit; not to put a noose around your necks; but to promote good order; and unhindered devotion; to the Lord.

Remember… ‘You’ are “NOT” in a Rush to get married. Often times, the world will put you under pressure by saying… “Your Biological Clock is Running”…! What they miss is that… “God ONLY Opens & Closes… the Womb!” Often time, medical science… leaves God out of the lives of All. They want to take credit for Healing… when in reality God uses doctors; but Ultimately HE is the ONE… who controls your… “Life & Death!” How many married people do you know… that are “Happy with their Mate”…? They ‘ONCE’ made a commitment to their… “Marriage Vows”…! They ‘ONCE’; said they… “Loved Each Other”…! What Happened…? Do they “Love JESUS”… First and then ‘Love Each Other’…? May I simply suggest… “IF” = You cannot Love your Mate… as “You Love JESUS”… “THEN” =… Perhaps a “Biblical Marriage or Any Marriage”… is ‘NOT’ for You…?

*** (Genesis 30:22) And God remembered Rachel; and God listened to her and opened her womb.

*** (1Samuel 1:6) And her foe also provoked her grievously; in order to make her tremble; because Jehovah the Lord had shut up her womb.

*** (Matthew 12:36-37) But I [Jesus] say to you that every idle word; whatever men may speak; they shall give account of it; in the day of judgment.
(Matt 12:37) For by your words you shall be justified; and by your words you shall be condemned.

*** (Deuteronomy 23:21) When thou shall vow a vow unto the LORD thy God; you shall not slack to pay it: for the LORD thy God will surely require it of you; and it would be Sin in thee.

*** (2Corinthains 10:12) We would not dare put ourselves in the same class with; or compare ourselves; to those who recommend themselves. When they measure themselves; by themselves; and compare themselves to themselves; they show how foolish they are.

*** (Philippians 4:6-7) Do not be anxious about anything; = but in everything by prayer and supplication; = with thanksgiving; = let your requests be made known to God.
(Philip 4:7) And the peace of God; = which passes all understanding; shall keep your hearts and minds; = through Christ Jesus.

*** (Luke 18:1) Jesus told his disciples a parable; about their need to pray; = all the time; = and ‘never’ give up.

*** (1Thessalonians 5:17-18) Pray ‘without’ ceasing.
(1Thes 5:18) In everything give thanks; = for this is the will of God; = in Christ Jesus = concerning you.

*** (Isa 32:17) And the work of righteousness shall be peace; = and the service of righteousness; = shall be quietness and hope forever.

“Christian or ‘Born Again’ – 101”…Blog.

Are You Born Again… by the Holy Spirit of God…? Do you have a personal relationship with Him…? Do ‘You’… ‘read & study’… His Holy Word… Daily…? Do you openly share Christ Jesus and His Finished Work of Redemption… with ‘Others?’ Do You know IF you were to die in the next… ‘5–minutes’… You would go to be with Him… in heaven. Do you have a Clear Conscience…? IF You cannot answer Yes to these question… then perhaps You are not ready for Marriage…? Let alone a supposed… “Soul Mate”…!

*** (Luke 12:47-48) That servant who knew what his master wanted but didn't prepare himself or do what was wanted will receive a severe beating.
(Luke 12:48) But the servant who did things that deserved a beating without knowing it will receive a light beating. Much will be required from everyone to whom much has been given. But even more will be demanded from the one to whom much has been entrusted."

*** (Luke 17:10) That's the way it is with you. When you have done everything you were ordered to do, say; We are unprofitable servants; we have done that which was our ‘duty’ to do.
