Scriptures taken from the fees and $5.00 starting at verse $31.00 and it says For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and shall be joined until his wife and they too shall be one flesh this is a great mystery but I speak concerning Christ and the church a message this week isn't titled Broken but bonded broken but bonded shall we pray Father God we thank you for this opportunity to study your word a very loud Lord now as we discuss issues of relationships and love Lord that your Holy Spirit would speak and Laura once again I would just be that nail upon the wall majeure portrait would be hung there upon that I am not seen Lord Have your people here and see you tonight this is our prayer in Jesus' name amen So I came up with the would this concept is a do these talks from time to time have spoken for pure reality many times over the. Last couple of 10 or 15 years but this week was interesting because I don't know if it's the lockdown the stress of the corona virus pandemic or if it's. The economic tsunami that has happened because of the pandemic Maybe it's all of the racial tension the stress around just watching the news and social media but I've had more than one of my friends. Reach out to me in tears because they feel like their marriage is falling apart and. Wanting some relationship advice and wanting. To know how to move forward as Christians in that situation. Obviously I will be speaking their specific situations but instead will be given some generalized advice tonight biblical advice not not my opinion but biblical advice and from the Spirit of Prophecy so to do that we're going to jump to the Book of Genesis chapter 2 Genesis chapter 2 starting from verse 2125 The Bible says in the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept and he took one of his ribs and closed up of the flesh instead there of and the rib which the Lord God had taken from men made he a woman and brought her on to the bread and Adam said this is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh she shall be called Woman because she was taken out of men therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother and shall cleave unto his wife and they shall be one flesh and they were both naked the man and his wife and were not ashamed the lot you can unpack from just these few verses of Scripture for one Eve is the last thing created if you follow the the story of creation the way that God designs and creates is that his creation becomes more complex as he moves through the process. And so men when Adam is form of the dust of the ground it is the most complex thing he has made up until that point after that he makes woman and it be difficult to argue that the most complex thing God created is not the human woman. And for very good reason women have the ability their their mind their the left and right hemispheres of their brain have more connections across the corpus callosum in the brain than a man does meaning that women this is how some argue women have intuition and the ability to multitask women are more complex in that God designed them to be able to carry children and not just carry children but to the nurse and feed the child so sophisticated is the process of nursing a child that from the saliva of the child some argue the woman is able to tell what nutrients to add or subtract from the breast milk of that lactating child in that. Nursing child in the actual milk that a woman produces was when she nurses it's even more profound literally the antibodies the woman carries are put into the milk so that sort of her newborn child actually has a specific immunity against certain infections that the mother has already had it is complex when you think about what God designed in a woman and the idea that unlike all the other animals while the child is in the womb it can listen to the voice speech intonation the child is affected by the stress levels of the woman as when she is pregnant so it is that it is a very important and serious thing and hence a woman is not formed from out of the ground of the woman it is formed from out of the man taken from his rib because she is not was not taken from his bed because it was not designed by God that a woman should beat up her man or lord over him and men. And she was not taken from his foot because she was not to be trampled upon by a man either she was taken from his rib what do ribs do ribs protect the vital organs so she was taken from that part of a man that literally protects him and keeps him alive Had she is called to help me when I am Caesar and you can only imagine people's people say you are wrong to say this but I would have to imagine that he was so beautiful I would imagine that when at one guy brought Eve to Adam his tongue fell out of his mouth like in a cartoon the role of floor his eyes popped out of his head she was so beautiful it seemed all the beauty of creation but when he saw Eve Adam what Adam did know what to do I would imagine he couldn't speak probably for a couple of hours and then he says she's born among homes flesh of my flesh the Scripture says For this reason because when a man takes a wife there to be one flesh a man must leave his father and his mother and he must cleave to his wife and they said the one flesh and the idea of becoming one flesh is where physical intimacy comes it was sexual relations come in and the Bible says that when they were created this way they were not ashamed. Even though at that point he still didn't have posed the question is why was Eve created in the 1st place if you want to understand on the dynamics of a relationship between a husband and a wife or even in any kind of. Relationship where someone is courting and so forth this is an interesting question why I created what did you have to create even Absolutely not we noted in creation and in nature there are animals that do not have 2 sexes the whip tail lizards the stick insects small to sawfish all one gender they can produce life out of that one gender you don't have to make 2 gender in fact in my opinion it blows in the face of evolution that you admit the more complex more risky method of procreation rather than simply having one gender like an amoeba break off a piece and create another human being it was created because in Genesis $218.00 the Bible says in the Lord God said it is not good that man should be alone I will make him and help meat for him it was not good for man to be alone so God made him a helpmeet notice it does not say a helpmate more than any other help meet with an easy because a woman is a man's equal she is his equal she is not to be lorded over so even before they could have children God designed them to be together because God always is looking for love that is given and received a wife has a like this in. And or in a writings in the beginning when the Sabbath law was given the marriage law was also given it was then that God was told on man his 2 great gifts the Sabbath as a day of rest and a woman as a helpmeet. In Christian relationships it says that a man should leave his father and mother to cleave to his wife and I see one flesh so if they if you leave your father and mother and cleave to your wife where is the 3rd part of that now it's God God must be at the center of all relationships especially the marriage relationship what you find is that when the husband and the wife are connected to God as they move closer to God like a triangle this goes back to high school geometry as a tool to move closer to God The distance between the husband or wife becomes shorter and shorter and this is one of the reasons many Christian marriages fail either number one or only one is moving towards God meaning that the distance between husband and wife can continually drift apart if you are born to be happily married God must be at the center of the marriage and it must be at the apex of this triangle so that as both study God's word and draw close to him you draw closer to one another. Because of who you marry and have a great influence on here's what I'm white says and you haven't or paid for 59 about influence things which influence influence us and our children every association we form however limited exert some influence upon us the extent to which we yield to that influence will be determined by the degree of intimacy the constancy of the intercourse and our love and veneration for the one with whom we associate Now this is a poor because I remember reading years ago probably back out of college the psychologist said that if you just spend 7 or 9 minutes and remember how many it is how many minutes it was around someone in conversation you begin to take on some of the traits of that person again that act like that person matter how much more powerful that it forwards is when you are romantically inclined and even more so when you are physically intimate hence this is one of the reasons why the scripture says that we are to wait until we are married before we are for a sexually intimate because if not you lend yourself to the deepest form of influence and then you can have that tide broke in quickly James for James 47 and it says it like this submit yourselves therefore to God resist the devil and he will flee from draw nigh to God He will draw nigh to you cleanse your head see centers and purify our hearts he double minded he says Listen draw nigh to God He will draw nigh to you as the married couple resist the devil he will it will be you have to flee from out of the marriage union and other to begin to draw close to God He draws close to their soul to look at number one God it must be at the center prayer brings Guard to the center of marriage. L.-y. says like the picture of all those who profess to love God so erect in the altar to the Lord were ever they pitch their tent if ever there was a time when every house should be a house of prayer it is now fathers and mothers will open so often lift up their hearts to God in humble supplication for themselves and their children let the father as priest of the household lay upon the altar of God the morning and evening sacrifice while the wife and children unite in prayer and praise and such our household Jesus will love to tarry in times like now prayers even more than ever before if you have not a Christian hall and praying family. Famine study or about how do you explain to children all the things going on in the world right now the racial tension the impact of the pandemic How do you do that if you are not united around God What explanation do you give your job if it is not a Biblical because if you are not able to give your children a godly explanation of what's going on in the world the world of the stupid to give your children an explanation and their explanation will be secular and humanistic it will be void of the Word of God and be and often any anti-Christian power porn it is that rather than social media educating your children the Word of God educate your children Number 2 respect never the less let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as themself and the wife see that she reverence her husband so interesting the relationship between a man and a woman is one where a woman is asked to reverence or respect her husband but a man's is to love his wife and that is because in general. Men and women are built differently a man of them naturally drift his affections will naturally drift you'll get caught up in his cars or his football team will get caught up in this frenzy and his love for his wife can wane our woman seeing the weaknesses and fault of her husband in ways that others don't can quickly begin to disrespect her husband so we are given the Godly advice if it's 533 that a man should love his wife that must be us something that was done intentionally a woman must respect a husband because men's Eagles are fragile in fact a lot of women don't realize that men are far more fragile than women are and most cases and so if a man is treated disrespectfully and an eagle is is fractured or injured sometimes he he will act the fool in order to try and overcome that and the wife says mutual forbearance is needed we must have the Spirit of God or we can never have harmony in the home the wife if she has the Spirit of Christ will be careful of her words she will control her spirit she will be submissive and yet will not feel that she is a Barnsley but a companion to her husband if the husband is a servant of God He will not lord it over his wife he will not be arbitrary and exacting we cannot cherish home affection with too much care for the home if the spirit of the Lord well as there is a type of and that if one ers The other will exercise Christ like forbearance and not drop the holy away of his whole body to 18 in other words if one of the 2 makes a mistake and someone says something wrong the other one will be forgiven. It is this relationship where each is willing to accept the faults of others I heard one preacher say once that when you are dating your eyes should be wide open you should have a magnifying glass on that brother or sister you should be looking for every fault and defect if they if they if they be twix that I live a lie and they I love these 20 and move on but if you mess around and marry them with their b. fix you've got to go from a magnifying glass to blinders and now you've got to accept the faults that you've bonded yourself with respects neither the husband or the wife should attempt to exercise over the other any arbitrary control do not try to compel each other to yield to your wishes you cannot do this and retain each other's love becoming patient and forbearing considerate and courteous by the grace of God you can succeed in making each other happy as in your marriage vow you promised to do how by not trying to force the other person to make you happy and we'll talk more about as we talk about sexual intimacy in the marriage while you are looking for the opportunity to meet your partner happens sometimes it happens again we don't we don't put we don't use that magnifying glass you know ask the right questions when you fall in love the part of your brain where you make critical thinking the situations in your judgment sits in your frontal lobe that part of your brain is turned off. This is why I say that love is blind and what you will see the most beautiful woman and she is she is in a horrible relationship a being abused they say it is a how did this happen it is because the sensibilities of the man all the woman when they fall in love and that emotional tie the way or is over you it turns off the ability to think clearly and this is why we say love is blind but let me tell you something if there's ever a time you don't want to be blind when you're trying to figure out who you will spend the rest of your life and one of the reasons for that is because we live in a traumatic world we live in a world of trauma where people are often abused neglected abandoned and and many times have been hurt so many of us come from broken families and broken homes and and rough neighborhoods a bullying and all these different things we we we've never seen 2 people that you know that my father left my mother when I was 2 years old and we've never seen 2 people in love as well as many of us grew up we haven't seen it even some of the houses what a husband and what a mother and a father stayed together the children watched more like World War 3 than they saw a happy home and so you're. Here is the piece of advice that goes along with respect hurt people hurt people if you wind up with someone who's been hurt they will try and hurt unless that person is healed so part of this process of respecting your spouse is before you marry a spouse you've got to know that your spouse has dealt with the traumas that they've had in their lives and here's the thing and you must do the same the same says this if you never heal from what hurt you you will bleed on people who didn't cut she if you never heal from what hurt you you will bleed on people who didn't cut you. And that's what a lot of people do you got you got you know you're somebody when you were 19 years 20 years old David you and you not somebody that 40 years old had nothing to do it if you don't heal from what I heard to your believe on people who didn't touch there's no respect in the home healing has to happen because it's difficult to respect someone else when you don't respect yourself but other tips Well if you don't have a happy marriage one communication you've got to have open channels of communication you've got to have safe space where you can respectfully talk about issues so that each of you know understands and what a major problems in marriage or marriages fail is that people don't understand each other's expectations you expect that he's not pay the bills and $1.00 day the lights go off you expect the House is going to be clean when you get home and when you come home it looks like a tornado went through and that difference in expectation especially when not communicated creates thanks and an anger toward the other person that often people hold inside and it rolls like a cancer till one day you wake up and we just grew apart no you know grew apart you actually couldn't begin to slowly not be able to stand the other person when all of the emotions wore off and you are left with expectations that were not met really aren't and were not often not even discussed stewardship is important because money is the primary reason family marriages fail money cash money so storage and maternal fetal time and offering having a budget and again knowing each other that's what they should be able to compromise and that you know what do you want to go to Hawaii for vacation the other was to go to England maybe you split in the middle and go to Oklahoma City right the middle of the 2 places. We talked about the dryness already but intimacy you should never stop courting once you're married because when you're on America's like you're on a trial I mean like a constantly trying to prove that case of love so you shouldn't stop being. In a phase of courting here's what here's what I don't know but I was about intimacy This is about sexual intimacy This is what 1st Caribbean 7 says about marriage relations and sex 1st written 7 verse 2 says nevertheless to avoid fornication In other words sitting outside of your marriage bond sexually let every man have his own wife and every woman have her own husband let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence and likewise also the wife and to the husband in other words mentioned take care of each other's needs the wife have not power of her own body but the husband and likewise also the husband have the power over his own body but the wife Paul is an interesting word the froggie Not one another in other words don't cheat the other person out of this aspect of your marriage upon the Friday Not one another except it be with consent for a time that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer and come together again while that said Satan tempt you not for your incontinence Paul warns that a marriage is a married couple who does not spend time. And intimacy together leave space for sentence temptations there's a lot you can peel away with. So that means God created sex so as much as a subset of the church talk about sex as its own dirty horrible thing the truth of the matter is God made it and God expects it to happen between married couples. So why did God create sex then the question why God created Eve I mean created sex are 5 things that will hit on quickly and it will be done one of them is for bonding to happen in the marriage so the title of his messages. Are broken but barred from and the reason I say I love because often we come into marriage broken but God expects us to bond together and as we move towards Him to heal intimacy is one of the ways we bond in marriage and in the 2nd part of it is a reward pathway for pleasure it is the naturally the highest way that nobody can be released in the brain meaning that by doing this you can be and I don't mean as what is released with cocaine a lot more than during sex but cocaine nicotine they all released high amounts don't mean what that design by putting the highest amount Adobe in the can actually released by the brain in the other the act of sex what he did is designed it so that you in a sense become addicted to your spouse I explain that more than a minute but it's also to promote selflessness and of course reproduction to sort of we have got only families and number 5 as an act of worship talk about that and secondly so Bunning Matthew 1940 years instead of them have you not read that he would spray them at the beginning made them male and female and said For this cause I'll a manly father and mother and cleave to his wife and they and the twain shall be one flesh wherefore they are no more 20 no more 2 but one flesh what Therefore God of joined together let no man put asunder. Time magazine article where a few years back a study was conducted and subsequently published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences which show that men are fueled by oxytocin when they are feeling love for their wives or girlfriends because their med being studied did not exhibit a similar reaction when they were still pictures of strangers no matter how pretty the stranger was this led to researchers to conclude that oxytocin be responsible for making men monogamous and sort of the scientist you know side of the device that was incredibly interesting. Oxytocin. Sex makes more sense when a male can copulate with as many females as possible to privacy but so how does monogamy come into play when they say that because oxytocin binds the man to his woman and the woman to her men it actually is what promotes monogamy this study that showed it goes couples who were married and never were intimate with anyone else those of America that actually last the longest it makes sense when you study this this some look at some of the studies so what happens is oxytocin days of President and or friends all work together in intimacy and when a man and a woman are are being intimate and they're looking at each other the face of that person is being x. in their mind connected to the dopamine release oxytocin the same chemical that a woman releases when she's nursing her child it's oxytocin that bonds the mother to the child men release the Armisen this. Man releases when he's intimate with his wife bonding the man to his woman and she releases it and when you combine the Adore Finn's of a suppressive I'm suppose a doctor me Sarah colorist all banded together God designed it so that the 2 literally become one flesh. Not just because they physically touch but because they are hormonal response is are mirrored between the 2 binding them together Scripture says of the 2 become one flesh the problem is that I desired 2 people would come together like white sheets how they had no sexual experience at all and then they become one flesh the problem is if the 2 people have multiple multiple partners each one of them comes into the marriage more like a tapestry like a quilt and it's more difficult because that connection that chemically was supposed to happen has happened so many town before that like if you take a medicine over and over and over again you build up tolerance to it it doesn't have its effect if you if you mess around outside of God's plan you make it more difficult to be happily married later I would argue this is one of the major reasons for divorce that people have so near her loyalty to their whole lives and then want to sell that one person except now their physiology and their appetite is for variety when God has called them to monogamy and I know this is not popular stuff to talk about nowadays but you the matter is it builds for stronger families and communities according to a lot of articles published in Time magazine read out already talking about oxytocin. So here's one of the actual published articles oxytocin Hansen's brain reward system responses and many of you in the face of their female partner so at it's actually one I'm mad bonds to a woman through oxytocin intimacy is more rewarding ever reading an article in here and someone in the industry of Marriage and Family Therapy saying you're going to the most sexually satisfied women in America are those that are happily married there's something about the safety of the marriage bed and then the connection that is allowed to happen that actually makes this process a more rewarding process which further bonds the couple together here's what our answers Gotham's of gave Adam a companion he provided to help me for him help or corresponding to him one who was fitted to be his companion and who could be one with Him in love and sympathy Eve was created from a river taken from the side of Adam signifying that she was not to control him as the head nor be trampled under his feet as an inferior but to stand by his side as an equal to be loved and protected by him a part of men both of his bone and flesh of his flesh she was his 2nd self showing the close union and the affection of attachment that exists in this relation for not what it isn't 5 to 9 says for no man ever yet hated it is all in flesh but nourishes it and cherish it and says once again there for the man leave his father with mother and child Cleave want to live and they shall be one no man his own flesh but the problem is a man a slept around in bed all over the place and and spread their oil it's all over the place it is sometimes it might make it more difficult to have the sensation that your wife is your own flesh and so you can trigger any kind of a way. In fact part of the most profound he says listen I speak of Christ and the Church of Christ is the groom the church is the wife how does Christ treat his church that's how a man is to treat his wife and how the church of those responded to Christ in that mystery there's a lot that can be packaged about how the marriage relationship should go well I talked a bit earlier about the war path of pleasure what silence hasn't sought asylum in chapter 4 verse 10 how fear is I love my sister my spouse how much better is that I love than one and the smell of the northwest and all spices you see some of it talks about the closeness he has with his wife it's so close it's like like like a similar type of love but it's as wife so they're not really siblings obviously but is a closeness a family nature to the bond and he says it is better than wondering why because wine is how people in those days especially when trying to get a chemical release of dopamine they get a pleasure rush that we people not a little nicotine cocaine wire and all kinds of stuff they get he says it's better why because there's no draw it's better because there's no foolish intoxication is better because it doesn't cause cancer amen and I myself as a preacher are some profit for city services it's physically sense of was the strongest man upon the earth but self-control integrity and firmness he was one of the weakest of men many mystics strong passions for a strong character but the truth is that he who is mastered by his passions is a weak man. The real greatness of the man is measured by the power of the feelings and controls not by those that control him so we say listen he's a player is a dummy look at all the women he has and what they want to spread a positive that's not a sign of a strength that's a sign of his weakness because he can't control himself the fact that she can they do all kinds of men doesn't mean there's not an attribute to the got to because it means she is outside of control which is a sign of weakness times strength so one of the dangers of just what is it here one of the dangers of why people have such poor control is we often attach sex and romantic love to alcohol and now marijuana and other drugs these drugs especially when alcohol or marijuana inhibit the release of Gabba Gabba stands for Gamma I mean the beauty of acid naturally occurs in the nervous system it isn't him atory chemical that comes from blue to blue to me and helps us to keep helps to keep us under control and calm when in stressful or excited situations so gabble is needed I believe the Holy Spirit works to Gabaa to help us behave ourselves when you get drunk or high all of a sudden the frontal lobe the sensibilities are wiped away if you have a gap release is inhibited and that's why drunk people will say and do all kinds of things outside of what we normally would do and some of our writing our I was just drug know you're responsible for what happens when you're drunk and there are many people who have lost their innocence. Been abused because they were so drunk so high they don't even remember what happened and why says the letters to young lovers page 63. A little time spent in selling your wild oats beer young friends will produce a crop that will in bitter your whole life and hour of thoughtlessness once healed into temptation will turn the whole current of your life in the wrong direction you can have but one youth make that useful when once you have passed over the ground you could never return or to rectify your mistakes he who refuses to connect with God and puts himself in a way of temptation will surely fall God is testing every youth in other words you know in his forty's when you get older you realize how truly hordes are you wish you could you the west you could buy a gun lorry and meet. Michael j. Fox as a professor and go back in time like on back to the future you can not go back you've been a wish and pray to God that you go back 2 days earlier 10 years earlier so that you don't make the mistakes you made and what young people have to understand is your more vulnerable because when you make the mistake earlier in life you must live on its consequences longer don't think about the spread your wound will try to be out there with everybody saying I want you to disconnect from God be with you to your ruin here's why because we have seen in this world the developing world there's been a decrease the time when girls start having their menses want to have their periods has gone and you can see on this graph here in Norway it used to be all that every girl which I've never met says add older than 17 years need to look at Germany Finland Sweden Here's the us all of the it was much higher. And look at what's happened over time from 832-1990 it's going to continue today or are remains the average age has dropped the average means at which a girl of United States has a pretty 1st period is 12 African American girl the last time I read it was 9 years of age and other girls have and that young Look the challenge that comes of this is with this change comes sexual desire. So now you tell a girl who is 9 or 10 years old to wait until she's $25.00 or $26.00 and as a graduate degree if you're not in God and attached to Christ those years will be very difficult years of temptation but one thing that you also say that our health message a vegetarian diet actually delays the onset of medicine young girls and what help you with controlling your passions but selflessness is one of the other ones that doesn't return to the wife due benevolence and lack was also the wife and her husband the fraud not one another 1st grade in 73 and 5 until we read this already I won't get into this too much except to say in marriage the game is how one upping each other and making each other happy and that is even in the marriage bed reproduction God bless them and not serve them to them Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue it and have the 1000000 of the fish in the sea and of the fall of the air and over every living thing that rule with upon the earth a man of character 15 and did not he make one yet and he the residue of the Spirit and where for one bet he might see a godly see God wants godly families. So sex is also created so that God could have valid family he who gave Eve to Adam as a helpmeet or daemon that men and women should be united in holy wedlock to rear families whose members crowned with honor should be recognized as members of the family above. His home played 159 what it was like a lot of questions about of this of worship and spiritual growth intimacy in the marriage bed is a form of worship and heard a pastor priest a long time ago every act of sex in the marital bed is a recognition of God's original plan and in that sense is an act of worship took our angels was hardly a face when we are outside of dogs playing the angels of God do not want to witness that type of thing so if the angels are turning away the demons can Russian Hence another reason or time to make such horrible mistakes when we are living outside of God's place but in the matter it's been the angels of God may not be as she is a form worshipping God literally saying I respect I concur I agree with how you ordained things to be 1st movie in 6 so it's tough when you look at all of this you know you talk about.
