What Is This Thing Called Marriage?

Have you ever watched the movie titanic, I mean let us just imagine what those people had to go through when their boat sunk in the middle of nowhere, they were all in the sea with nowhere to run except to hope for the best. They were all scattered and everyone was doing everything in their power to survive, and my question is if you were in the midst of them would you trust any if they offer you advice?


I also need you to imagine when Adam became a living soul when he breathed his first breath and opened his eyes for the first time all alone on this huge earth. Can we imagine what was going on in his mind? What was he thinking? The bible is silent about these things, but to add to his confusion after some time when he open his eyes there was another being who looks like him but she was a woman.


Well, we all know how Adam felt regarding Eve’s presence because the bible states that, he was very excited to have someone similar to him, but what was going through the mind of Eve? What was she thinking concerning the man Adam and concerning everything surrounding her? I believe there were lots of questions from both and God gave them all the answers they needed, but what made them doubt?


If they sincerely believed God’s explanation about their existence and everything to them, do you think they would have listened to someone else? Would they have entertained any strange voice? Each day men have dug, studied, and searched every corner of the earth, sea, and heaven to date to satisfy their curiosity, but still, they are not satisfied with what they are uncovering.

They wrote books about everything they have discovered, and also they wrote their opinions about so many things, and the next generation took over and continue with their curiosity and the following generation also did the same thing by writing numerous books about their opinions and all they discovered, and also corroborated our forefather's version of things.

Can I ask you this question, would you trust the explanation about how things operate and came to be from the person who is also in the middle of the sea trying to survive just like you? Can we say Adam and Eve are in a better position to tell us about the marriage?


Can our parents be the best option to give us clarity concerning this union? Who do we think is in the better position to give us answers? Is it our marriage counselors or Psychologists or who do you believe holds the answers to all our questions concerning this thing called marriage?

How old is the earth? How long have we been studying and conducting research concerning marriage? Are we getting closer to understanding this thing called marriage? Or does anyone has the answer? The bible is correct we are blind but we want to lead each other to a destination that we all still trying to figure out.

Genesis 2:20-22 (KJV) explains how a male person comes into some kind of a union with a female person and this is also confirmed by Matthew 19: 4, but Revelation 19:7 (KJV) tells us of the union between Christ and the church and it is supported by Mark 2: 20, and these two scenarios the Bible describes as marriage. Do we surely understand this thing called marriage? What is marriage?


My fellow brothers and sisters, we have wealthy people who have access to all but many are still struggling with this union and others have given up. Don’t you think it’s time to trust the one who was before all began? Don’t you think is time to trust the one who created the man and also created the woman to give us his perception? What do you think?

This union is not only about love but it also showcases the power and ability of two completely different entities coming together as one. Christ is from heaven above and he is then intending to join us those who are on earth with the heavenly beings to be one. This is what the Bible calls marriage. Two becoming one. What is your intake on this?
