KEY SCRIPTURE: John 2:1 KJV “And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:”
I wish to remind all patrons of these studies that, we are still looking at our major topic ‘
a walk with Jesus through the gospels.’ In our key scripture the mother of Jesus was invited to a marriage ceremony at Cana. I believe the mother of Jesus might be known to the couple in one way or the other. At this time the Lord had about four disciples, namely, Andrew, Peter, Philip and Nathaniel. They joined the Lord to the wedding ceremony. The Lord as we know Him does not go anywhere on impulse, or because he was invited. He went because he was convinced to go. It also shows how important marriage is.
Marriage is God’s idea. It is always between a man and a woman. This kind of marriage was not done in an official church building. Well, there were no church halls as we have now. I will humbly submit that, when couples want their marriages blessed at the family locations where the ceremony is being held, Pastors should be ready to go there and have it blessed, vows exchanged, and rings given. The signing of the marriage certificate could be done at the church office, for the purposes of the statutory requirements. Having a wedding at the church is most welcome as well. The options should be the couple’s choice.
We live in a world where certain satanists want to change the fundamental requirements of marriage. They call for the coupling of man and a man, or a woman and a woman. God calls it an abomination. Levi. 18:22.
Rom 1:26 KJV ” For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature”. Please note: In satanic worship one way to spite or insult God is to do things against the natural way or normal order. Any such acts give devils strong grounds to possess their victims. God’s judgement would surely come on such people. Pastors, Bishops or priests who encourage such marriages are blind to the fact that, EVERY LESBIAN OR HOMOSEXUAL IS UNDER DEMONIC POSSESSION.
A marriage between a man and woman is the only Godly acceptable marital union, which is healthy and gives no psychological hang ups to the children. The family forms the basis for a well-structured society. The family should be well functioning and knitted together. This will make for a better happy society. Today there are too many disjointed homes, with the ripple effect on the larger communities. If we want great nations, then let’s focus on building working families.
THOUGHT: HAPPY MARRIAGES, PRODUCE GREAT NATIONS

Psalms 133:1 KJV “A Song of degrees of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;”
