The Covenant Of Marriage

"He is now to be among you
 at the calling of your hearts
Rest assured this Troubadour

 is acting on His part
The union of your spirits here

 has caused Him to remain
For whenever two or more of you

 are gathered in His name
There is love
There is love..."

As a believer in,
 and follower of 
Messiah Yeshua,
 I believe that the union
of a man and a woman
united in Holy Matrimony,
is a sacred covenant,
between the couple and God.

 The First Amendment of the
 United States Constitution
 declares I have a right 
as an American citizen
 to my belief.

“God first appeared
 on the scene of human history
 in the role of a matchmaker.
 What a profound and exciting revelation!

Adam and Eve
Marc Chagall

Is it too much to suggest
 that Eve came to Adam
 on the arm of the Lord Himself 
in the same way that a bride today 
walks down the aisle
 of the church on her father’s arm?
 What human mind can fathom
 the depth of love and joy
 that filled the heart
 of the great Creator
 as He united the man and woman 
in this first marriage ceremony?

Surely this account is
 one among countless indications 
that the Bible is not a work
 of merely human authorship.
 Moses is generally accepted
 as the author of the creation record.

 But apart from supernatural inspiration, 
he would never have dared
 to open human history with a scene
 of such amazing intimacy...
first between God and man,
 and then between man and woman.”
-Derek Prince
"God Is A Matchmaker"

"For this reason,
a man shall leave 
his father and mother
and the two shall become
one flesh."
Genesis 2:24

"However, let each man
without exception,
love his wife as
his very own self;
and let the wife see
that she respects and
reverences her husband."
Ephesians 5:33
