TOPIC : SECONDARY PURPOSE OF MARRIAGE
SCRIPTURE : Genesis 4:1: Adam made love to his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain. She said, “With the help of the Lord I have brought forth a man.”(NIV).
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter with the word! Previously we explored the primary purpose of marriage in the light of God’s word. And we discovered marriage was meant to provides a picture of God’s love to mankind, to complete the missing part in man, for character development, to create enabling environment to raise godly children.
Today we shall be examining the secondary purpose of marriage.
What are the secondary purpose of marriage?
1. For procreation (Gen.1:28): The method of filling the earth is the coming together of a male and female in marriage. God expect the union of a man and woman to birth a new life. That is why God hate homosexual! There is no advocate of homosexual who is a product of gay marriage! Gay is a perversion of God’s original intention for marriage.
So all those who are proponent of LGBTQ( Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) should repent because if they ever have a world of LGBTQ there will be no reproduction there! And non of them is a product of LGBTQ. LGBTQ contravene a section of the scripture that says:
Genesis 1: 28. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Please note that if the primary purpose of marriage is not know, this secondary purpose is often stress out of measure!
Infact in most African culture, if a man and a woman stay together as husband and wife for a period of one year without a baby or pregnancy in view, they will begin to ask question if the woman still have a womb! It is as if there is no pregnancy it is the woman’s fault!
Please it is not in every case of delay that is 100 percent women’s fault, men has their own share of the problem problem. Women are multipliers of whatever eggs is deposited by men. So if a man deposit dead eggs that isn’t motile or active, what can the woman do? Absolutely nothing!
So you will agree with me that it is not in all the cases of barrenness that is the woman’s fault or as if she refuse to be pregnant. May I also address our women; if you are a woman don’t ever let the consciousness of I must be pregnant by all means to laid hold of you thereby permit it to control your life! Never allow that!
Some have entered into the hands of fake Prophet in the name of getting help to become pregnant. Some have ended up picking a baby from the devil that ended ruining their lives. I pray for someone today, that shall not be your portion in the name of Jesus.
Baby is a reward;
Psalm 127: 3 Children are a gift from the Lord ; they are a reward from him.(NLT).
So, don’t go and kill yourself with drugs and injection because you want baby that is a free gift from God!
2. To provide a ground for sex (Gem. 4:1):
The first man to experience sex is Adam and he does it in a marriage relationship not boyfriend /girlfriend relationship! Marriage is the only legal ground for sexual enjoyment.
The Bible said:
Hebrews 13: 4. Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
Every illicit sex outside the bond of matrimony, God will judge. If sex is your primary purpose for marriage, and you couldn’t get it from your spouse adequately, then you will certainly get it else where.
Remember this : Heaven is real and hell is real! The rejection of Jesus is the only tickets to hell.
Prayer points :
– Father thank you for your word to me today,
– Lord, I receive grace to pursue the primary purpose, while you make the secondary purpose a blessing to my marriage in Jesus name.
– I prophesy the release of all the blessings attached to marriage including babies, let them be release upon your life in the name of Jesus .
– To those trusting God for a blissful marriage, receive it now in Jesus mighty name.
