SEX AMONG COUPLES – WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES – PART TWO
HUSBANDS ARE NOT TO DEAL TREACHEROUSLY AGAINST THEIR WIVES
Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant.
And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.
For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.
You may be surprise that God is so concerned about marriage that He gave men specific instruction about what should be their attitudes towards their wives. God has a reason for this:
He is looking for home where Godly children could be raised.
Do I tell you one truth? Devil equally knows about this. So devil is also looking for homes where he could raise ungodly children
Who wins in your home? God or the devil.
To dealt treacherously against your wife means to be deceitful, unfaithful, disloyal, falsely or dangerously.
As a man how faithful are you to your wife?
Are you sure you have not opened the door of your family to external spiritual influence as a result of your unfaithful and disloyal acts in your marriage?.
Some may say, does this concern only men? What about women, are they not equally unfaithful?
God knows that women are there, but instructed the men because he is the one who married his wife and as the head have total responsibility for the success of that marriage.
As regards to sexual unfaithfulness, it is not in the nature of women from the beginning. What we witness today is just an act of retaliation for men untamed sexual perversion in the society and their wickedness against womanhood, particularly, their wives.
Remember men have stronger sexual interest than women, some men lack capacity to endure sexual urge, the result is that they go all out to get the urge satisfied hence, the warning by God to men never to practice such because it is heart breaking to their wives. Read verse 14 again;
“Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant.”
God is interested in the success and that happiness in your marriage, give God a chance to fulfill this in your life.
Follow His manual for marriage and do not argue with Him. Remember, He is the author of marriage so you can’t know more than God. Bless you for reading
