Reconciliation of Estranged Couples
And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
1 Cor. 13:7
Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
1 Cor. 13:8
Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother,
and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband:
but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favor of the Lord.
Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times;
and be thou ravished always with her love. And why wilt thou, my son,
be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?
For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord,
and he pondereth all his goings. His own iniquities shall take the
wicked himself, and he shall be Holden with the cords of his sins.
He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity,
which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy
portion in this life, and in thy labor which thou takest under the sun.
Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled:
but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
Seek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read: no one of these shall fail,
none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded,
and his spirit it hath gathered them.
1 Cor. 7:2
Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife,
and let every woman have her own husband.
Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
For he is our peace, who hath made both one,
and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself;
and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
God did not take woman out of man’s feet for him to walk all over her.
He did not take woman out of a man’s head for her to lord over him either;
but He took her out of man’s rib to walk along side of him as a helpmate,
and from his left side next to his heart to love and cherish as Christ loved the Church.
antonym of “obedience” is “resistance;” “submission” is the
Eph. 5:21 does not say, “Obey ye one another,” but “Submitting yourselves one to
another in the fear of God” so submission is not always precisely obedience.
It means: surrender or yield to; honor and respect; or humbling yourself before in obedience. This I share because I have ministered to people who have divorced
because of a wrong interpretation of the teaching, “ Submission.” Men who have
been wounded through dictatorial or dominating mothers or some woman along
life’s pathway, have a tendency to put their wives under bondage of obedience
and do not recognize the damage they are doing to their love relationship
For Singles, Divorced, or Surviving Mates:
For I would that all men were even as I myself.
But every man hath his proper gift of God,
one after this manner, and another after that.
1 Cor. 9:4
Have we not power to eat and to drink?
1 Cor. 10:13
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven:
and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
