9-22-2012- MARRIED- BE AS THOUGH YOU ARE NOT


1 CORINTHIANS 7: 29-35 =

(29) BUT THIS I SAY BRETHREN, THE TIME IS SHORT: IT REMAINS THAT THEY THAT HAVE WIVES, BE AS THOUGH THEY HAD NONE; 

(30) AND THEY THAT WEEP, AS THOUGH THEY WEPT NOT; AND THEY THAT REJOICE, AS THOUGH THEY REJOICED NOT; AND THEY THAT BUY, AS THOUGH THEY POSSESSED NOT;

(31) AND THEY THAT USE THIS WORLD, AS NOT ABUSING IT: FOR THE FASHION OF THIS WORLD PASSES AWAY.

(32) BUT I WOULD HAVE YOU WITHOUT CONCERN. HE THAT IS UNMARRIED, CARES FOR THE THINGS THAT BELONG TO THE LORD, HOW HE MAY PLEASE THE LORD:

(33) BUT HE THAT IS MARRIED, CARES FOR THE THINGS THAT ARE OF THE WORLD, HOW HE MAY PLEASE HIS WIFE.

(34) THERE IS A DIFFERENCE ALSO BETWEEN A WIFE AND A VIRGIN. THE UNMARRIED WOMAN, CARES FOR THE THINGS OF THE LORD, THAT SHE MAY BE HOLY BOTH IN BODY AND IN SPIRIT: BUT SHE THAT IS MARRIED, CARES FOR THE THINGS OF THE WORLD, HOW SHE MAY PLEASE HER HUSBAND.

(35) AND THIS I SPEAK FOR YOUR OWN PROFIT; NOT THAT I MAY PUT A LEASH ON YOU, BUT FOR THAT WHICH IS PROPER AND THAT YOU MAY ATTEND UPON THE LORD, WITHOUT DISTRACTION. 


"REMARKS"

CLEARLY THE SCRIPTURE HELPS US UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN YOU ARE MARRIED TO A MAN OR A WIFE, THAT YOUR ATTENTIONS ARE DIRECTED TO THE WIFE OR THE HUSBAND, IN WAYS THAT TAKES AWAY, YOUR FULL ATTENTION TO THE WORK OF THE LORD.

WHEN IT SAYS, BE AS THOUGH YOU HAD NO WIFE, IT IS BASICALLY SAYING, NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN TO SERVE JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AND GOD, YAH'WEH, WITH ALL YOUR HEART, MIND, SOUL, AND STRENGTH.

ANYONE WHO PUTS ANYTHING, OR ANYONE, BEFORE GOD, IS NOT PUTTING HIS HEART AND LOVE WHERE GOD DEMANDS.

HE WHO LOVES HIS LIFE, WILL LOSE HIS LIFE; BUT HE WHO LOSES HIS LIFE, WILL GAIN ETERNAL LIFE.

THERE IS ALSO A PASSAGE OF SCRIPTURE THAT I WANT TO BRING TO YOUR ATTENTION. IT IS IN MICAH 7: 5 = 

TRUST YOU NOT IN A FRIEND, PUT NOT YOUR CONFIDENCE IN A GUIDE: KEEP THE DOORS OF YOUR MOUTH FROM HER THAT LIES IN YOUR BOSOM. 

TRUST IN NO ONE BUT THE LORD YOUR GOD. 

REMEMBER, THERE IS NOTHING THAT SHOULD SEPARATE YOU FROM YOUR LOVE OF GOD AND THE LORD.

YOUR ETERNITY DEPENDS ON YOUR LOVE OF GOD, YAH'WEH, AND THE LORD AND MASTER, JESUS, YAH'SHUA.

LET NOTHING, OR NO ONE, TAKE THAT AWAY FROM YOU.
