Marrying & Given in Marriage

downloadfile-53Jesus said in Matthew 24:38 people will be married and given in marriage like the days of Noah’s flood. People will be married and given in marriage until the Son of man comes in the Rapture. In the days before flood people were eating, drinking, marrying given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. The wedding party was going on when Noah called people to get in the ark. Noah and his family of eight are married couples so did not let marriage get in the way of obedient relationship with God. Secular fun party they thought was too good to miss ignored Noah’s calls, pleas though flood started. People had never seen the rain before but assumed they knew how long it will take before life gets back to normal. Strong desire to be married to celebrate important than salvation of their souls. Put love of man above love of God creator of marriage in Garden of Eden. Adam told its not good to be alone God made Eve from Adam’s rib married as wife and his companion to help meet.20200501_183137Jesus never married so had no children. In Matthew 22:30 Jesus said, in heaven in the resurrection there is no marrying or given in marriage. Life is eternal and  conquered no need to marry replace the dead. People in heaven in resurrection as angels. Jesus said, “You are mistaken because you do not know Bible there is no marriage in heaven. Its people of this age who marry and given in marriage, eat, drink, party days or months. Noah built ark 100 years so God gave enough time to listen to heed warnings. Noah’s family of eight stocked up food, saved pairs of each animal to replenish earth after flood. Mockers stockpiled food and animals cooked it for sumptuous meal’s marriage feast. Noah’s ark saved family, others galavanted partying like there is no tomorrow and perished in flood. In heaven focus is on Sovereign LORD God Almighty alone. You recognize all loved  ones reunite with family so LOVE GOD. Virus Outbreak GermanyNo need to replenish the earth again as destroyed in Noah’s flood to restore life. Sodom and Gomorrah burnt by sulfur fire never restored. In heaven Jehovah God has no virgins for marriage. Its God who created marriage for Adam when he was alone with abundant riches and needed family to enjoy God’s resources. He desperately needed a companion to help him enjoy free blessings of God. It did not turn out as God intended as they chose to listen to the devil and not God who created them and supplied all their needs. Matthew 24:38 says it is lawful to eat and drink in moderation not excess gluttony. God ordains marriage so gives the right to marry by finding spouse. So God endorses marriage but if marriage becomes excuse to break God’s love for mankind to ignore or replace Him with spouse then God is offended. His law of marriage rules include worship of God. People in Noah’s days to put eating and drinking parties above God’s calling and it was disastrous. Some mocked, scoffed at Noah said, he was mad in lockdown with his family confined in the ark.downloadfile-42They prefer to roam free to enjoy their rights of freedom and their liberty go to gather and party all night. Than to be in a confined restricted boring ark with a murky smells of animals too long. Life outside was too good to stop enjoying to celebrate with friends. But God shut the of the ark door so by the time the flood reached their neck to realise their folly it was too late. They started banging on ark door. Some trampled on others who fell into floodwaters never to rise again. The ark floated so they were left behind to drown sadly for rejecting God. Jesus said, as it was in days of Noah, Sodom and Gomorrah He will come to rescue in Rapture. Lockdown implications got worse before it got better. Some marry and given in marriage to express deep love for each other. Marriage must not cancel call of duty to God, Jesus, family, friends, honour of GOD’S HOLY NAME as God gives you blessings of marriage.IMG-20200427-WA0000They prefer Jesus said do not focus too much on external marriage ceremonies in preparation in details to show off to ignore God. So ten virgins fantasised about a wedding, five wise ones took extra oil for their lamps to meet their Bridegroom. The five foolish ones tried to draw friends or family in shenanigan asking them to empty their oil to share will make other lamps go out like theirs. The wise virgins refused and the foolish ones left back to town to get own oil for their lamps. By the time they came back the Bridegroom came and the wise went in for the greatest banquet in heaven so the door shut five foolish did not get in. The marriage was not about them, its all about the Bridegroom Jesus giving them chance to enter God’s Kingdom. Foolish virgins made it all about their image did not carry extra oil to spill on their posh clothes or oil smell ruin their perfumes. Miscalculated found themselves in big trouble. Didn’t listen to advise so missed the great opportunity to enter heaven. freestocks-org-a1Fmxesw31g-unsplash Jesus said things of this world choke the word of God so people ignore  wise message of Gospel. Enjoy marriage but do not let it ruin your lives or souls. Jesus said if you marry, live for God and don’t let marriage ruin your life or those around you as if only one ever married. In heaven God will not ask how happily married or wealthy your marriage was HE will ask how you treated members of your family and how many souls you won into heaven’s eternal life. So while partying, eating and drinking Jesus said the Rapture will happen as in the days of Noah. Listen to the message of Jesus to enter new Ark of salvation in Christ Jesus as your Lord. Accept Jesus today to pray for forgiveness of your sins and to forgive those who hurt you. Thank God for saving you in eternal life to heaven. In Luke 14:20 on invitation to the great banquet some said, ‘I married a wife I cannot come.’ Others said I bought land to inspect, another said I bought oxen to test missed banquet. So the king sent his servants to the highways and by ways to bring in others to come for all things are ready. Hunger and thirst for God’s word for God’s eternal soul food at banquet.

In Your hand is POWER and MIGHT no one can withstand You. 7 You God drove out inhabitants of this land before Your people Israel given to descendants of Abraham Your friend 8 to dwell built Temple in Your name.

Fear of God fell on nations who heard the LORD has destroyed Israel’s enemies. 30 God gave Jehoshaphat REST OF GOD. We pray in agreement Father God gives you REST OF GOD in VICTORY in Jesus Name. We praise you LORD, thank you Jesus thank you Holy Spirit for comforting us daily.

MAN’S SELF-DESTRUCTIONS

shutterstock_266546210Mankind self-destructs but blames God for not intervening to help them. These biological and physical wars have killed billions of people over territorial fights. Mankind is desperate to dominate every nation on earth as tyrants exclusively so destroy others to try to accomplish their deluded fantasies. Living history proves generations of healthy men and women killed by a few greedy selfish ones who want to control the whole world. They just cannot live and let others live and so constantly fuel wars to benefit them. The fastest largest profits for businesses is death mongering fear, recruits people to fight. Each side is convinced they will soon finish off enemies because their weapons are bigger than the other’s. IMG-20200425-WA0000Propaganda films, game designs cause addictive behaviours in virtual online bubble not exposed to the real dangers of opponents think they will soon win. Underestimate danger to themselves or the innocent targeted lives in combat facilities of war zones. Famine created because farmers can’t grow crops the land mines explode killing or maiming millions each year. Since world war one bombs, countless millions of landmines deprive people of use of land for food. Toxic chemicals of nuclear wastes take over whole cities and leaks into water tables, air pollution combined with the chem trails. Animals eat contaminated toxic chemicals transmitted to humans in the food chain. The rebellious human race will not cooperate with God to use resources HE PROVIDED for all equally. IMG-20200425-WA0001Delusions of grandeur reprobate minds think they will rule the whole world by themselves because God’s creations not good enough to live among them. Over the years mankind abused resources to share with a privileged few forget it all BELONGS TO GOD THE PATENT OWNER are just stewards. Despite having more than enough riches, wealth, food, drink, homes, material possessions want more and more killing people to take over the whole world in the deluded “reprobate” minds God calls them. If disaster strikes blame innocent people they attack who had nothing to do with their evil plans to try to save face. Project evil hatred on the people whose resources they usurp for thousands of years for lavish lives. mankinds-selfalienation-has-reached-such-a-degree-that-it-can-experience-itsGreedy deliberately ruin farmer’s crops genetically modified not grow if planted forced to depend on the fake world food program so supply is used as weapon of control to starve nations. Monsanto had made pacts with stooge leaders to stop farming to impose castrated crops that do not reproduce to cause hunger. FORGET GOD OWNS ALL land whether an atheist, evolutionist or antiSemitic Jehovah GOD SEES IT ALL. Those eliminating God’s creation to help them exclusively own this earth are in for the greatest shock of their lives. Evil may prevail because it’s set in motion to destroy but its not the end of life. Sadly families lose loved yet mourn with hope because GOD WILL RESTORE the earth. Those conniving damaging life on earth to eliminate people are in trouble with GOD THE PATENT OWNER OF EARTH. Every secret agenda to kill God’s people by a few’s greedy delusions of grandeur will not go unnoticed by God the creator who gives EQUAL RIGHTS TO ALL TO LIVE ON EARTH. Selfish people take all things given freely by God then kill the people they hate and eliminate. God the CREATOR OF HUMAN LIFE SEES IT ALL.

IMG-20200425-WA0002 How dare you think you control earth? What makes you think you deserve life more than others? The deluded tyrants killed many people but where is Hitler, Alexander the great, Nero, Marie Antoinette, Jezebel? Evil kingdoms come and go God destroys them for killing others. History of recovery never involved whole world crushed on lock down. Bible Truth says hunger, starvation, famine, drought, wild fire, fracking, manipulations of a few greedy selfish people. They delude themselves they will kill off people and own the world. God will never let them take over the earth it BELONGS TO GOD so make life right with God if you meet your maker you will be saved to go into heaven not burn in hell. Do not gain the whole world and lose your soul into hell fire torment punishment. Escape God’s wrath and the reckless killing of human lives will be punished. Reprobate minds think they do God favour by killing HIS creation. God will judge them for selfish errors of thinking they deserve God’s resources. God will judge them and torture them alive in hellfire. Don’t let devil deceive you to recruit to hell and its too late to repent. Change stop all evil ways. Jesus RULES A NEW RESTORED sinless world coming soon so be alert, wake up accept Jesus be saved.20200427_110101John 16:1-2 says they deprive you, put you out of synagogues, throw you out of meeting places and kill thinking they are doing GOD A FAVOUR. They take law into their own hands to judge others but it is not their job. GOD’S JUDGEMENT DAY will judge all human actions in life GOD DESTROY NATIONS controlling life killing people to “reduce” population or enemy. They WASTE RESOURCES on earth more than people killed, deprived, takes resources and gives loan to the poor who can’t pay and hungry. Greedy indulge in grandeur lavish parties and lifestyles repulsive to God. In Revelation 19:15-19 punishment killing by God IN GREAT TRIBULATION. 15 Out of Jesus mouth sharp sword used to strike nations. He will rule them with a rod of iron, tread winepress by fierce anger wrath of Almighty God. 16 Name on robe and thigh KING OF KINGS AND
LORD OF LORDS. 17
Angel stands in the sun shouts in loud voice to birds flying  “Come to ear supper of the GREAT GOD, 18 EAT flesh of kings, captains, mighty men, horses, people sitting on them and people free, slave small or great.” 19 The beast, kings of earth and armies gather to make war against Jesus on horse and His army defeated in Armageddon.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS LESSONS

wp-1577100682177.jpgChristmas can be truly happy if lessons learnt are applied to make it easy on all members of the family for the sake of Christ Jesus. Even enemies in combat at Christmas put down guns to celebrate Christmas together and exchange gifts. German soldiers joined British troops in frontline battle a 100 years ago to eat together at Christmas. Eve inter-sibling skirmish to reverting to your teenage self and scrapping over the TV remote on Christmas Day, the annual festivities can put family relationships on edge. So, when weather outside is frightful, how do you keep home life delightful to stop Christmas celebration turning sour?

1. Ease Christmas crushGrandfather and kids open presents

Going home for Christmas is great – but when you get there, will you be sleeping in your old teenage bedroom – maybe along with your partner and kids? “Even if we’re busy at work or at home, we have time alone don’t we?” says Relate counsellor Dee Holmes. But at Christmas people are often “forced too much into each other’s space. If you’ve got houseful of relatives, there’s always something to be done or someone who wants to talk to you.

Two young women looking cross

Christmas Eve inter-sibling skirmish to reverting “Children are used to having time when their parents ignore them, in front of the telly… and: ‘Aunty Freda’s here, let’s play a game…'” So appreciate that your nearest and dearest may need some space and having a happy family Christmas doesn’t mean you all want to be together 24/7. Instead of expecting everyone to join in every moment of Christmas Day, maybe agree some key times, like opening presents and Christmas lunch, but otherwise be flexible, she suggests.

2. Don’t be kitchen freakYoung women eating near sink

Let’s face it, Christmas catering is really hard work. And even if you prepare as much as you can in advance, timing a roast to perfection is a fine art – and if it goes wrong, can result in overcooked veg, cold turkey – and a large helping of stress. So if you’re the designated cook, don’t be afraid to ask for help, says Dee.

“Make sure there’s a bit of a rota about people all helping and everyone mucking in.” It’s important everyone has some downtime – including the cook, she says. And if cooking at home is just too much of a stress point, Kim Moore, a mental-health expert at Birmingham City University, advocates considering going out to eat.

3. Whose Christmas Is It?Baby in front of Christmas lights

“There’s the child-centred Christmas and there’s the adult-centred Christmas -and sometimes, in family environment, they clash,” says Dee. The danger points abound where different generations are forced into close proximity, she warns – from sleepy teens woken before it gets light by their over-excited younger cousins or people without children annoyed if they have to open all the presents before breakfast, to the adults who are drunk before it gets dark and argue heatedly about politics.

“Another big thing is how people revert to their traditional roles in the family when they all get back together,” Dee says. “So you know you live the rest of the year being a successful professional person or you’re doing your own thing and as soon as you get home, you’re the youngest one or the naughty one.” This sort of stereotyping is a big cause of Christmas rows, says Dee, who urges family members to cultivate tolerance, empathy and “a bit of sensitivity to other people’s expectations”.

4. A Christmas truce

Agreeing ground rules on subjects to avoid over Christmas can be a really good idea, says senior mental-health nursing lecturer Kim. In addition it’s wise to try to resolve in advance any outstanding issues between family members which could lead to rows on the day, she advises. “Try just to be respectful of the other people,” adds Dee. “And if you want to have argument with someone, is today really the day? “If someone said something that annoys you, maybe you say, ‘I’m just going to ignore that for now.'”

5. Remote & technologyClose-up remote control

Remember the days when there was one TV in the corner of the sitting room and rows over channel choice? The good news is that those days are long gone and everyone with a phone can potentially choose when and how to watch whatever they like. So traditional arguments over who controls remote less problematical, says Dee. She warns adults who want to recapture possibly  past family Christmases, everyone sat down to watch Doctor Who together, are unlikely to succeed. And then there’s the problem of prising teens away from their phones. “If you spend all year with your teenagers in their bedrooms… don’t have unrealistic expectations of family life being suddenly different because you wake up and it’s Christmas morning,” warns Dee. “Don’t expect a miracle.”

6. Christmas karaoke?Family playing a game

Music is one of great way of bringing families together and making everyone feel better, says Kim. Karaoke or just pass the parcel to Christmas songs can be “a great way to engage all family members from young to old” create some fantastic memories, she says. Alternatively, you might prefer charades or board games – but beware the Christmas scrabble row. Some families choose to go for walks on Christmas or Boxing Day but Dee says a relaxed family Christmas often depends on not expecting everyone to join in with everything. “Just because you have a ritual and you’ve always gone on a walk after the Queen’s speech doesn’t mean you always have to keep doing it.”

7. The spending trap

The urge to overspend at Christmas can be enormous, with families targeted by massive marketing campaigns months ahead. January is a tough month, too often made worse by credit card bills and overdrafts, so managing spending and expectation in the run-up to Christmas is key, says Dee. “I think it’s important to talk about what the limitations are, what the budgets are.” More and more families are choosing to discuss Christmas gift budgets with their children, she says, even when they’re quite young. “It’s not about saying we can’t afford it… or making them scared that you’ve no money, or anything like that, but being realistic.” And try to make gifts “fair”, she says. “Children will soon pick up if they feel there’s an unfairness.”

8. Stay safe

Christmas is meant to be a fun time so it is particularly tough when it goes wrong, throwing family problems into stark focus. People contact Relate for relationship counselling most in the weeks after Christmas than at any other time of year, says Dee. If disagreements spill into violence, Kim says not to be afraid to ask for help, even if this means calling the police. And if you fear for your safety, organisations such as Women’s Aid andMen’s Advice Line also offer advice.

9. Dry January: start earlyChristmas drink

If you’re worried about fuelling family rows over the festive season, why wait until January to go teetotal?

“The use and overuse of alcohol can be a major trigger of family discontent over Christmas,” Kim warns. Dee adds that the best-laid plans and intentions can all too easily be forgotten when you’ve had a few – tolerance and sensitivity can go out of the window and it’s all too easy to say the wrong thing, with minor disagreements becoming full-blown family bust-ups.

“I have certainly heard some horror stories,” she says. Dee says it’s really important to make sure drinkers have plenty to eat – and rather than banning booze altogether, she suggests spritzing wine and making bucks fizz with your champagne or prosecco, with plenty of suggestions available online for non-alcoholic festive drinks to lightly enhance feelings of goodwill to all – even your siblings.

CHRISTMAS KINDNESS HELPS

A woman has written and hand-delivered 1,900 Christmas cards to strangers in an effort to combat loneliness.

Mo Fayose, from Nottingham, spent months staying up late into the night writing the cards and then trekking the streets to deliver them.

The 45-year-old said she wanted to reach out to the vulnerable.

Every card was delivered with chocolates and an invitation to dinner on Christmas Day, hosted by a team of volunteers.

“There’s an atmosphere about Christmas that makes it very, very depressing for many, many people – being given something, being remembered, makes a lot of difference,” she said.

She said she was “gutted” when she ran out of cards last week.

“I had reached number 35 on a street… but it had another 30 houses. Maybe there’s someone in need?

“Next year I’m going to make even more and start again, where I finished.”

She bought the cards in bulk after Christmas last year to keep down costs but said she lost count of how much she spent, with the total somewhere “in the hundreds”.

“Someone came out and said thank you, and I could see on their face it meant something to them,” she said.

“It’s all about love. If you can give that back, that little gesture means everything.”

The mum-of-two, who runs the Community Cares Club, came up with the idea while working as a mental health nurse when a woman told her how isolated she had become.

“She said, ‘can you imagine, no-one even sends me Christmas cards’. That hit something inside me, it hurt me.”
