Marriage: Glorious Institution

Posted By Pastor Bayo on Aug 18, 2015 |

CONTRARY to the lies of Satan and the perversion his agents have brought into marriage institution, marriage remains a glorious, Godly and holy establishment – Hallelujah! Our prayer is that every child of God that is yet single whom God has ordained to enter into this glorious estate will not fall short of the purpose of God, Amen! No one has any reasonable or unreasonable point to have a negative attitude about marriage; because in God’s own programme, it is merry-age for all He joined together. So you can say boldly with faith in the Lord Jesus Christ that: “My marriage is a glorious merry-age, I and the partner (whom God shall give/have given me) will always have dominion, we shall never be dominated by the devil and his agents, in Jesus ‘ Name. Amen! “

The word of the Lord states that after God was done creating everything, He looked back and expressed satisfaction that all was done according to plan – including marriage!

Genesis 1:31

“And God saw everything that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”

There is no doubt in our minds that whatever God Almighty says it’s “very good” could only be a described as “super excellent” in the words of men; and that even is for want of words. God says everything He made, male and female (and of course) the marriage institution, could not be faulted – all very good-glory to Jesus!

No wonder, one hymn writer – Mrs. C.F. Alexander (1818-95) writes:

1.            All things bright and beautiful,

All creatures great and small,

All things wise and wonderful,

The Lord God made them all.


6.            He gave us eyes to see them,

And lips that we might tell,

How great is God Almighty,

Who has made all things well:

Our great Daddy made all things well, so there is nothing about marriage that could be referred to as being unholy. The word of the Lord makes it clear that if it is done the way God ordains it, marriage is honourable; it is only those who engage in sexual immorality that are condemned.

Hebrews 13:4 (Amp)

Let marriage be held in honour – esteemed worthy, precious (that is,) of great price and especially dear – in all things. And thus let the marriage bed be (keptundishonoured) undefiled for God will judge and punish the unchaste (all guilty of sexual vice) and adulterous”

We must not fail to say, you definitely have a choice!
