LORD if you told me to climb a mountain to gain a new wife I would be willing to do it in the blink of an eye!
But what am I willing to do for you JESUS? What am I willing to do for the kingdom of GOD, or for helping other people?
If GOD told you to lay down for 30 minutes a day and pray for a husband, then GOD would give you one for sure, you WOULD BE SO WILLING!
But why wont we lay down on our couch and pray for ourselves, our family, our loved ones, our country & Israel for 30 minutes?
If GOD told you to read a book for 1 hour a day and he will give you an incredible Christian man to marry - YOU WOULD DO IT IMMEDIATELY! You would be so happy to do this every day knowing you were getting an incredible husband to marry soon.
But why wont we sit down and read the Holy Bible which is alive, which GOD live inside of the words, which by reading this book it will turn our entire lives around for 30 minutes a day?
Because our priorities are all screwed up, that is why!
We have made finding a new man or woman to date and marry much MUCH more important than JESUS, the kingdom of GOD & ministry work!
We children of GOD must change our perceptions, we must change the way we view things, we must get our priorities straightened out and it is going to take incredible grace from GOD for us to do this. Many of us have been brainwashed by the world we live in to focus on and obsess on the opposite sex, dating, marriage and sex!
If GOD told you to worship JESUS for 30 minutes a day and GOD would give you an incredible Christian man to marry, YOU WOULD SO DO IT! You would be so willing to do this to earn a brand new wonderful husband to marry!
But why wont we worship JESUS 30 minutes a day or night because he is SO WORTH IT? Or because he loves us & died for us? Or because he is the creator of everything and he bought us from satan paying for us with his own blood, with his own life?
We have got to pray to GOD to change our hearts, to change our minds, to change our perceptions and to straighten us all out!
If GOD told you to go help the homeless 2 nights a week and GOD would give you an INCREDIBLE Christian girl to marry, YOU WOULD SO DO IT, so would I!
But GOD tells you that if you help the homeless 2 nights a week you are BUILDING up treasures in heaven so why wont you go do it?
Many parts of the Christian church have put way too much emphasis on dating and getting married!
Even much more emphasis than we do on GOD himself, or his son JESUS, or the bible, or getting into heaven, or helping other people!
If GOD told me that if I read the bible 1 hour a day HE would give me an incredible woman to marry, I WOULD SO DO THAT! I have been single for most of my entire life, currently I have been single for about 14 years now.
So, since this is true, would I be willing to read the bible 1 hour a day to gain heaven? Or to help others? Or to learn about JESUS, or so that GOD could use me more in doing ministry work?
We, children of GOD need to be SET FREE from the STRONGHOLDS of dating, the opposite sex and trying to get married!
These strongholds are so embedded in our heart and soul, we elevate them even above JESUS himself!
If GOD told me that if I pray 30 minutes in the day & 30 minutes at night he would give me an incredible woman to marry - I WOULD SO DO IT!
You know darn well you would read the bible 1 hour a day if GOD told you that he would give you an incredible man to marry if you did study the bible!
So why wont we read it 1 hour a day to gain heaven? Or to learn about GOD? Or to help others? Or to get closer to JESUS?
Oh FATHER in heaven, we need these strongholds ripped out of us so badly!
Set your children free JESUS, set us free from this bondage to the opposite sex, to the bondage to obsessing on getting married! Have mercy on your children JESUS we pray! Help us to overcome this terrible stronghold in our lives.
But am I willing to pray 1 hour a day to bless my family? Or bless myself? Or bless my loved ones? Or to bless the USA? Or Israel?
Many of us children of GOD have so HIGHLY ELEVATED the opposite sex, dating and finding a spouse, we would do almost anything for this.
But would we be willing to do almost anything for JESUS? Or to help the poor? Or to bless Israel through prayer? Or for our moms and dads?
I do want to get married, this is true! But the key word in that sentence is – WANT!
I want to get married, I do NOT have too get married. If I HAVE to get married to find happiness, this shows that my relationship with JESUS is not where GOD wants it to be. Or if I HAVE to get married to have the terrible emptiness inside of me filled up, this is exactly what satan wants you and I to do. Satan wants you and I to use the opposite sex to fill up our hearts, to fill up our souls... GOD wants us to use his incredible son JESUS for this and the bible and helping people through powerful CHRIST centered ministry work!
I do NOT need to get married, I do not NEED to have sex, I do NOT need to date!
We have to change the way we see things. We have to change the way were thinking!
The closer we get to JESUS, the more we can help people! The more we study the bible, the more GOD will use us to help people! The more we pray, for SURE the more GOD will use us to help others!
The more we worship JESUS, the more our entire lives, the more our entire universe will change!
It is perfectly fine to pray for a wife or husband! It is when we elevate these fleshly goals above JESUS that it becomes a STRONGHOLD! Satan wants to turn the topic of the opposite sex into powerful strongholds inside of us so his demonic soldiers can live inside of us.
I need JESUS, I need the bible, I need to pray -
I need to help others!
It is great to pray to get married or to have children after.. But once your done praying about it each day, DO NOT think about it anymore! Once your done praying for your goals, then move forward with JESUS casting out all thoughts on dating, sex, marriage or anything else that has nothing to do with the kingdom of GOD!
Praying to meet someone to marry is good because GOD is in the middle of the prayer!
But thinking about finding someone to marry is very very bad........ GOD is not in the middle of your thinking and obsessing! We have got to win the battle in our minds over bad thoughts. We are not allowed to think about guys, girls, dating, marriage and sex all day long. If we do this, demonic strongholds will be built up inside of you by the demons!
The more time you spend with JESUS and the bible, the more your entire life is going to change, the more GOD will use you to help others, the more GOD will use you to share the gospel with others and it will be wonderful!
I would climb a mountain for sure to gain a new wife if GOD said too!! But what would we be willing to do for JESUS and the kingdom?
Which one is harder - Climbing a mountain! Or Reading the bible daily? Think about it.....
Which one is harder - Climbing a huge mountain! OR Worshiping JESUS nightly after dinner with wonderful music on?
Which one is harder -> Climbing an icy cold mountain! OR Sitting down and doing a prayer session every day or night?
We want to change what were obsessing on! We want to obsess on JESUS, the bible and the kingdom of GOD and helping others, NOT on the opposite sex!
Which one is harder -> Climbing a snow covered mountain! OR Passing out clothing to the homeless?
As you can see children of GOD, GOD is not forcing you to love him, GOD is not forcing you to read the bible, GOD is not forcing you to pray is he?
As you can see child of GOD, GOD is NOT forcing you to help the poor, or feed the hungry, or do worship sessions to his son JESUS!
Yes you or I would do all of these things in a second if GOD told us he would give us a wonderful man or woman to marry if we did!
As you can see child of GOD, GOD is not forcing you to memorize scriptures! GOD is not forcing you to pass out clothing to the homeless!
The choice is yours! Will you focus on and obsess on the opposite sex, dating and getting married? OR -------->>>>
Will you focus on JESUS, the bible, learning the truth, doing your spiritual warfare, helping other people who need help badly?
You can see GOD is not forcing you! So which one will you choose this day?
Will you choose to make dating, marriage, sex and the opposite sex the most important thing in your life?
Or will you choose GOD, his son JESUS, the bible, memorizing scriptures, praying, worshiping & helping others to be most important?
Which of the choices do you feel would be better for you? Which of the choices do you feel would be better for GOD, for JESUS, for their kingdom? Which of the choices do you feel would help people, feed people, clothe people, bless people and set people free from satan?
Have you noticed child of GOD that obsessing on the opposite sex, dating & marriage leads us to watch porn and masturbate? Have you noticed it leads us to feeling sad, lonely and depressed? I sure have noticed this that is for sure..... It also leads to LUST!
While obsessing on JESUS, the bible, prayer & helping others leads us to have joy, love, some happiness, fulfillment, contentment etc etc!
Look at the fruit! What is the fruit when we obsess on dating, sex & marriage? Lust, porn, sadness, loneliness, depression, masturbation, emptiness and pain!
If we obsess on JESUS - The fruit is - Revelations, learning more truth, helping others, being more free, getting to know JESUS better, learning more about GOD, having his light shine in us more etc etc.
If we would climb a mountain for the opposite sex which most of us would be willing and eager to do in all honesty!
