Greetings to the Father, Angels and saints in Christ. Before I post, the Lord drew to my attention Jude 6 which says, “and the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation…” Thanks to the angels who did not follow satan in rebellion, but kept serving the Lord. Blessings on you. How can I bless an angel? Well, we bless them for being faithful. I met Andrew and Patrick recently and meet many more regularly. Angels are real fun and help you with the chores of life. You must get to know them.

Today I would like to briefly talk about the Law of undying love. I was drawn to Adam and Eve. Adam experienced an instant “aha” when he saw Eve, knowing that she was part of him – bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh. He had an emotional reaction and a spiritual revelation. This tells us that a man can know who his wife is by some deep inner revelation or conviction. I have met people who said that they dreamt about the individual before even meeting them for te first time.

How does this mysterious “aha” take place? Do you have to be a man to have this experience? I don’t know. The point is that Adam was the astounded one. She was everything he had longed for, although in the depths of his spirit he had previously been fully unable to define all that he needed. According to Gen 5: 2, God confirmed this by calling their name Adam. This meant that they were one and is the basis for the wife taking the husband’s name, notwithstanding the practice of the present age in which we live.

God gave them a common purpose when he said that Adam needed a helpmeet. They were to be fruitful, multiply replenish the earth, subdue it and to have dominion over all the created things. This seems to be another key element in undying love – man and woman working in unity. Adam is the one who called her Eve or life because she was the mother of all living. Did he misname her? Remember that God had the capacity to create humans out of clay. Did Adam become overly fascinated with Eve? Was this the reason she was able to tempt him to disobey God. Got to be more careful with the issue of undying love!

God called Eve “woman” in 2: 22, meaning the one who is married to a man and the one who is opposite to the man. This was done deliberately to convict (in the judgement) the people who say the members of the same-sex can be married. Adam also called her “wife” which is the same hebrew word for woman. People, only a woman can become a wife. Furthermore, she can only become a wife when married to a man.

However, the usage of the word “wife” in the context of Gen 2: 25 tells us that only a woman who is a wife should become naked with a man. It’s not enough just to love the man. You must be married to him. These truths are coming to me as I examine the scriptures at this point in time. It is to the wife that the man must cling and it is for her sake that he must forsake father and mother. Living in what people today call a trial marriage is not acceptable to God. He does not sanction this kind of relationship, because he did not create a trial of marriage. When he joined Adam and Eve, they were immediately married and married for life in a beautiful union.

The skeptics are saying that God does not know what He is doing in relation to marriage. Is marriage on trial? No, we humans are unable to fit what God created because of sin and unbelief.

Blessings and more to come.
