Ephesians 4:26,27 says “ Be yea angry and sin not; let not the sun go down upon your wrath; Neither give place (opportunity) to the devil.”
This is what has happened to the Christian marriage, and it’s time to speak up and out about what Satan and his schemes have done.
If the Lord would grant me the wisdom through his word, over the next few weeks I am going to be speaking to the men first and then the women of God. Satan has come to STEAL, KILL and DESTROY the Christian marriage. He takes no vacation, nor does he rest. He is setting up a plan right now as I speak to take your marriage out so that you are running to the courthouse and not to God’s house.
First of all, it’s Jesus and not the Church who can restore, redeem and refresh these marriages. The day is coming when Jesus is going to set the House of God in order, but that’s for another article.
To the men of God — when was the last time you held your wife’s hand or hugged her neck when she came home? When was the last time you told her that you liked that dress or that you love it when she wears that color? When was the last time you told your wife to turn that computer off, turn that cell phone off and TV and come over to the couch and cuddle with you? When was the last time you had dinner cooked, washed the clothes and folded them before she got home? The men of God have allowed too much going here and there in the homes. Everybody is a busy body going, going, going all the time, and if Satan can keep your focus going here and there rather than spending time with your husband or wife, well, he wins.
Now when this happens, the devil will use a willing vessel to come by your wife’s or husband’s eyes, someone who does everything you don’t do. They will say the kind words you don’t say, give the complaints you don’t give, take time to hear them when you don’t. Men of God, speak up and out if your wife is a “busy body.” If you don’t, you can easily become a prime candidate and rest assured Satan will send someone your way who does all the things you would desire and that’s when you give him an opportunity.
It’s not fair that you give your job 90 percent, your friends 90 percent, your co-workers 90 percent, your church 90 percent , your family 90 percent and even these electronic devices (cells phones,computers,iPods, ect) and come home and only give your wife 10 percent. Why must she get the leftovers of you when everyone and everything else gets the main course meal of you?
Men of God, it’s time to rekindle the passion back in your marriage. Satan is busy more now than ever; he knows that his time is short, and if you give him room he will take it.
