Important message for Singles and those in romance:
Facts, there are those who are married wanted out because of problem in their marriage, while many singles wanted to have a partner to get married. It is really an opposite world. We really have to thanks Pastor Kong Hee for giving us the sermon on relationship series. With God’s love everything is possible. In the beginning, in book of Genesis, god created Eve to be Adam’s mate. God patiently crafted Eve out of Adam’s rib. So, this has been and will always be the symbolic meaning that a man’s wife should be arranged and crafted by God. Then, if we look at old testament, God played quite a role in arranging marriages. But human became more sinful as they progress through industrialisation. Then, parents became the match-maker for their children’s marriages, almost across all cultures. Those olden days, you seldom see divorces. A wife being married to a chinese man, only knew the role of doing household chores and produce childrens. Can you imagine some family is as big as one football team plus reserves in those days? Then, due to technology advancement and we started to see woman working, taking over man’s role. In politics, CEO and so on. So, the value of the role of woman has been eroded away. In the beginning, it wasn’t intended this way. Now, people being connected back to God through our Lord Jesus have to look up to god for match-making again. Who else can arrange the best mate for him or her? Who else knows the individual from inside out better than our Holy Spirit who dwells in each and everyone of us?
I think it would easier for me to put in Q and A to provide some answer.
Q. Should single set a target date to get married?
A. No, single should not set a target date because you are imposing an ultimate date for God to get a life partner for you. Asking in prayer for a mate should be humble, not to tell God what to do, where, who, when or how he should fulfill it. Yes, our Pastor once said that single should set target date for marriage. Yes, but must be in accordance to God’s will. It would be a dire consequences for individual if the target date came and (especially lady, example set up 30, 32 or 35) nothing happened. This target would become an oppression and the worst off situation is that the individual may rush into marriage decision giving in to concession, even to the extend of thinking that he or she can accommodate the mismatch and then hope to change the person later. It could be the worst mistake and that ended in divorce as the other party would not change and expected the spouse to accept what they are.
Habakkuk 2:3: For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Thus your vision of ideal mate will be revealed to you on an appointed time. Pray this way, “Abba Father Jesus, if it is your will that I should be married, reveal to me my life partner in the way of revelations through dreams, vision or even someone that you would sent to tell me. Thank you Lord Jesus for answering my prayer.”
Q. What should I do in order to find my love one?
A. You should not be focusing on finding your life partner. What Lord Jesus has revealed to us is that we must focus on him, that is vertically love God and horizontally loving people fervently. I once said to singles, I think up to date about half dozen of them; that they should continue to focus on doing God’s will (in accordance with his will) by showing love and care for people and in so doing, The Love will come to you. What I mean is that, the person whom God had arranged for you will show up because of your great love for people, she or he will be attracted to you, probably sharing the same interest.
Q. I have been praying for many years until now still singles?
A. There is no fixed answer. Just like there are people who prayed for healing but wasn’t healed? Was it the faith that is in question? I have a spiritual daughter in Surabaya, she requested me to pray for her to have a soul mate, sometime July 2008. So I prayed for her. Then, mid Sept 2008, I happened to chat with her and she thanked me saying that God had arranged a soul mate for her. The man she did not know but met at the Church, he received salvation and Meyna told me that many evil spirits got out of him when he was baptized by the Holy Spirit because he studied black magic. They plan to get married this year. Or you are destined to be single, read 1Cort 7:32 – 35. Apostle Paul wasn’t married. Was the “Thorn in the flesh” is his desire to married someone he loved?.
Q What if I already ROM to a non-believer?
A. If you already ROM with a non-believer than you have to pray for rectification in your this relationship. Or else, many activities both of you cannot do together. Worst is to have the mindset that by getting married, you can influence the person to accept Lord Jesus as their savior. Remember, Lord Jesus gives everyone the freedom to choose salvation or not. This is the same situation as those who was not a Christian and then one of them became a Christian. They too can pray for rectification and for the family’s salvation. What if rectification doesn’t happen or things don’t work out? Listen to what our Holy Spirit is telling you and obey.
Lastly, as mentioned in the Bible. It would be also good if one can remained as single. 1Cort 7:32 – 35 “But I want you to be without care. He who is unmarried cares for the things of the Lord – how he may please the Lord. But he who is married cares about thing of the world – how he may please his wife. There is a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in the body and in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world – how she may please her husband.”
Want to have a covenant marriage by God? You must first have Covenant Love approved by God, Our Lord Jesus.
With this blessed love arranged my God, the two will become one without any frictions. The rib will fit nicely into the chest of the Man, guarding his heart. Thus fufilling the will of God and divorce is remote because covenant love beget covenant marriage. Matt 19:4 “He who made them at the beginning.”
Of course, there are isolate cases of Christian where wrong marriages ended in divorce but later they found renewed blessed new mate. This is taken from Harvest Time No283/07/2007 by Rev Dr. Larry Keefauver “In 21st century culture, divorce isn’t a curse or tragedy, it’s simply a transition from a good marriage gone sour into the exciting adventure of finding a new mate. ”
Of course we do have 2 groups of people, one group saying critically that any divorce is sinful and while the other group said that it is alright to divorce as long as not due to fornification or due to lust for worldly gain.
I will be writing a book on this issue. Having received revelations concerning this subject. Christians should not be prejudiced nor be judgemental on divorced people or people going into divorce. Due to the change in society, we have to reach out to more divorcees than before.
(Notes added 1/3/2009) Covenant love leading to marriage must be arranged by God, Our Lord Jesus. Do not put target date on your marriage or it will be oppressive to your live if time draws near and nothing happened. Neitheir should you go all out to seek your lifetime partner, you may have to go through the painful rectification process. Let God, Our Lord Jesus be your match-maker, he is our Abba Father.
