GOD'S WORD ON WEDDING

In His answer to a question on divorce Jesus went to Genesis 2'24 for the creation of Kingdom Wedding-Marriage.

Challenging the Pharisees He added a command that defied divorce:

"Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning 'made them male and female', and said,

'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife and the two shall become one flesh'?

So then, they are no longer two but one flesh.

Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate," Matthew 19'4-6 (quoting Genesis 2'24).

With these words He conveys to Believers several profound understandings and one command:

God is Lord, both in His word and in His Creation.

His marriage involves the male and female He created.

He joins the man and the woman together.

The man is to lead in His marriage.

The couple complete their wedding ceremony by their physical union.

The man and the woman are joined together by God for the rest of their earthly lives.

The command? "What God has joined together, let not man separate"!
