Your Conclusion On Marriage

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his
commandments: for this is the whole duty of man” (Ecclesiastes 12:13).

“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before
you were born, I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations” (Jeremiah 1:5),

From the above scriptures, you can see that you were not created by mistake. God sent you into this world for a purpose. That purpose is to fear God and keep his commandments in every area of your life, including your marriage.

God’s conclusion and expectation in everything concerning your marital relationship is that you fear him and keep his commandments. The first step into wisdom is fear.

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding” (Proverbs 9:10).

This implies that refusing or failing to fear God is the beginning of foolishness. How do I know? “The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God. Corrupt are
they, and have done abominable iniquity; There is none that doeth good” (Psalm 14:1, 53:1). This fool takes decisions and acts without considering what God expects or does not expect.

Now, in your marital relationship, do you respect or exercise fear for your creator in the things you do? Lets do a check.

If you are taking advantage of, or having sex with someone else’s legally married spouse just because the person’s family is enjoying some financial assistance from you, you are God’s enemy and you don’t fear him.

If you are stealing from church purse to feed your family just because you have access to that money, you are toiling with a curse. God says you should fear him and keep his commandments.

If you are spending money on frivolities like drunkenness, parties and expensive dresses, while your children’s school fees, your house rent and other vital bills have not been paid; and you keep telling your spouse that you are broke, God says you should fear him and keep his commandments.

If you have the habit of talking negatively against your spouse in his or her absence, only to come before him or her and pretend to love him or her more than yourself, God says you should fear him and keep his commandments.

If you are the type that hardly forgives offence by your spouse or have the attitude of physically assaulting your spouse, you are God’s enemy. “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his
commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”

It is even worse when you amidst this unforgiveness, go to church every time to clap, dance and shout Halleluiah, as if all is well with your relationship with God. Your conscience is dead and you are deceiving yourself. God says you should fear him and keep his commandments.

If you are deliberately doing things that can make your children hate your spouse, you are Satan’s work tool. If you have the habit of lying to your spouse, remember that “all liars shall have their part in
the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death” (Revelation 21:8).

If you are conniving with third parties to steal money from your spouse or to defraud him or her or you personally extort money from him or her like a criminal, God says you should fear him and keep his commandments.

If you are the type that gives conditions to your legally married spouse before access to sexual pleasure, or you deny your spouse sexual pleasure for no reason, you are a sinner. God says you should fear him and keep his commandments.

“Do not deprive one another, except with consent for
a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer, and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self control” (1st Corinthians 7:5).

If you are officially married but you are having sex with someone that is not married to you, you are an adulterer who lacks the fear of God. God says you should fear him and keep his commandments.

The day you went with your spouse to the altar of God for wedding after the joining at traditional marriage, you made an oath or vow. Before God, you vowed that: “I Brother/Sister ABC do accept you, Brother/Sister XYZ as my wife/husband to have and to hold, for better for worse. I will love you in plenty, in poverty, in good health and sickness. I will nurse and honour you according to the will of God till death do us part.”

God has not forgotten, and can never forget this covenant. Violation of wedding vow has consequences. It was not a joke. It was a spiritual exercise, involving your destiny.

Maybe you are single but you always keep appointments for acts of immorality and you are living in fornication. Let me remind you that there is an ultimate appointment. “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this, the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).

Without the fear of God, you cannot keep any agreement in life, including your marital agreement. Each time you ignore God’s view in your Marriage-related decisions or do something that contradicts Biblical instructions, you are failing in your divine assignment.

Now, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his
commandments: for this is the whole duty of man” (Ecclesiastes 12:13).
