Can you imagine Adam and Eve walking around in their birthday suits in the garden of Eden; with eyes only for each other, no animalistic lust or desires for no one but each other, nurturing and caring for each other. That is why when he, Adam, saw her and gazed at her beauty the only romantic words he could utter was, “bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh.” This was how marriages were meant to be; you share your flesh with one person in unity, in love, for better and worse. Adam and Eve faced the worse times of their life when they disobeyed God, they started the blame game, but realized that with God that doesn’t work, because He (God) sees and knows everything, because of His omnipresence and omniscience. Adam and Eve realized that God had distanced Himself from them, because they opened a door that God distinctly told them not to open. Today, because of greed, lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, pride, arrogance,and selfish desires these things have overtaken society so much that sexual immorality is the norm and bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh has become free for all who are willing and able to participate.
Adam and Eve, after they disobeyed God’s command, realized what it’s like when you don’t consult God before you act. If you don’t consult God about an idea or plan, it will be a no win situation, not only in life but in marriages, and also before and after you are married. Just like we have God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, in a marriage you should have God, the man, and the woman. And just like how Jesus and the Holy Spirit are both accountable to God, so are the husband and the wife. If both are obedient to God then everything will be perfect, because the buck stops with God. No, I am not an expert on marriages, and my own is a sham, but I pray, we all could live by this formula or principle that the Holy Spirit revealed to me. If Adam and Eve had consulted with God before they partook of the forbidden fruit, what a difference life and marriages would make. Instead of my way or the highway; it should be God’s way or the devil’s demise or destruction. Which way did you take? Is shacking up an option, no it’s not. It’s saying I am available, so I can walk out that door, with the option of never returning.
Men and women, aren’t you virtuous enough to be married to? (Read Proverbs 31)
Just imagine if the man and the woman are both obedient and submissive to God, His word, the guidance of the Holy Spirit (that should be residing in them if they are both Christians) and believe and trust God; What a difference and an example that would be for our future generations. This is the reason why shacking has become so normal and acceptable, and the divorce rate has sky rocketed above normal; Because people are more lovers of themselves, than lovers of God as 2 Timothy 3:1-13 clearly points out to us. They refuse to love their neighbors as themselves, things are not getting better it’s getting worse, men are marrying men, women marrying women, this is not normal folks, the devil has deceived and blinded the minds, eyes and hearts of the people, thus turning them against God and His commands and promises, just because he does not have a chance nor opportunity to ever get right with God. Don’t let the devil fool or deceive you anymore. Shacking up, nor same-sex marriage is not part of God’s original plan, other wise Adam and Eve would not have enjoyed the privileges of the Garden of Eden.
“He that findeth a wife, findeth a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord” (Proverbs 18:22). Therefore, it’s better to live alone, than to shack up and live in sin, I guess neither of you is worth marring to each other, because neither of you is good enough. Listen to me, a married couple has more privileges and benefits than a shack up couple. When separation comes a shack up person loses all rights and benefits to the things they didn’t purchase, while a married couple has to share. There is no half and half when it comes to shacking, you lose all your Godly privileges when it comes to shacking, because you are living in sin, and God does not reside where sin is.
The Bible outlines God’s principle when it comes to living, anything crosswise of God’s truth is of the devil. God says, “His people are destroyed because of lack of knowledge” Hosea 4:6. Knowledge is power, use your God-given knowledge now that you know the truth. Stop shacking up, stop sleeping around, start living for God. You can start today by going to the top of this blog.
