The Mystery Of Marriage


Marriage is an incomprehensible mystery,
a hidden truth kept secret from the foundation of the world.
It cannot be discovered by intelligence or insight,
but made explainatory by revelation.

Revelation reveals the mystery of marriage,
it explains the mutual relationship in marriage.
It shows the rhema, light and love in marriage.
The mystery of marriage is understood by the revelation from above.

The wisdom, knowledge and understanding of marriage is made known by revelation.
It is the ability to see beyond the seen,
in order to see many unseen realities of life.
Revelation unveils the principles of building a blissful marriage.

Marriage is honourable in all,
above all in a bed undefiled.
It's hidden truth is unveiled by revelation from divinity.
It constitutes a platform for fruitfulness in life and ministry.
It spreads the continuity of human generation.

Marriage as a divine institution,
solves the problem of aloneness.
It empowers man with resources to fulfil destiny on earth.
It is a hidden treasure not discovered without revelation.

Let revelation inspire the
discovery of marriage treasures.

Marriage not only give pleasures,
but
it help partners fulfil destinies.
Understanding in marriage kills separation and builds togetherness.
It develops unity and oneness among couples.
Understanding curbs separation in marriage,
and
solves marriage miseries.

The manifestation in marriage cannot be explained by knowledge,
except
by revelation from divinity.
Marriage is a mantle not a struggle.
The man must provide for his wife,
the woman must submit to her husband.

Seek love not lust before marriage;
let character and charisma build marriage;
let love and care establish marriage;
Marriage remains a mystery till death.
