The Way of a Man with a Womanmanwoman3edit (16K)

Incredible! Think about it!'The way of a man with a woman.' It totally freaks me out just as it did Solomon. (Ck. Prov. 30:18-20) The majesty, the beauty, and yet the ugliness that it can become when a man and woman get together. When Satan puts his claw prints on any of God's creation, he leaves a horrible mess. We as the highest peak of God's creation act like his lowest and the reason is because of sin. Women are beautiful creatures not animals that we pick up off the streets and take home to get some physical satisfaction. What has the world come to? We look at each other with this, 'Gimme, Gimme' attitude. Love is giving without expecting anything in return. Love is an action word alright and I am not talking about an up and down action. Nor am I talking about semen when I am talking about love giving. It is giving of our time to help when someone hurts, giving of our finances when someone needs something, giving of our lives daily whether we get anything in return or not. Sex is to be an outflow of genuine love but sad to say most of the time it is an outflow of genuine lust. We don't care for one another any more. We just want to feed our greedy, sinful nature. Yet when we are alone and quiet. If that happens anymore in these days. We know from this thing that we call conscience that our lifestyle is totally wrong. We know that we were meant to be more, much more than so-called animals jumping on top of one another. Do you think that it is just an accident that there is noise pollution everywhere you go these days or almost everywhere. The music (?) is blaring in everything from department stores to restaurants. No time or place to sit and think anymore. Satan surely wouldn't want that. He knows your mind might go to thinking about eternity, 'What if I do live forever when this body dies? Where am I going? Was this world truly a mistake, an accident as I have been taught? Why do I have a knowledge of right and wrong? How can order come out of chaos? Or can thoughts of right and wrong come from a mistake? Why is there a nagging in me all the time that tells me that there is a reality and his name is God! That I am not here in vain, there is a purpose for my life.

"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who surpress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world his invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse. because, although they knew God, they did not glorify him as God, nor were they thankful, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image make like corruptible man- and birds and four-footed beasts and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil- mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful: who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, not only do the same thing but also approve of those who practice them."

Sex is a very intimate thing. Sex in the wrong way and in the wrong time destroys. Because we get too personal with one another's bodies whether through sexual intercourse, oral sex, heavy petting, deep fondling, or whatever else. We are asking for trouble. There needs to be a commitment to each other. That is why God ordained one man for one woman and that being within marriage. We are super complicated individuals with not just physical wants and needs but emotional, mental needs. Top priority is our spiritual need and that being God. If we put those other needs, wants, desires before him then sooner or later everything will come crashing in. Anything that we put before the one true God is a false god and false gods will fall. I do not advise you to wait and see. Many times the false gods come crashing down on its worshippers.

Sex in the right way and in the right timing fulfills us in the physical and also in the mental and the emotional to a certain degree. When two people are committed to one another it is totally awesome. The bible says that the husband has authority over the wife's body and the wife has authority over the husband's body. I think that sounds pretty romantic. But the bible also says that the husband is to love his wife as Christ loved the church and the wife is to obey the husband. If the husband is doing his part, the wife will have no problem doing her part. That is unconditional love that we are talking about. The kind of love that Jesus was operating in at all times even on the cross when he prayed for those who put him there and for those who wanted him crucified. God wants us to enjoy life but he knows that we never really can until he is sitting on the throne. All of us have a vacuum, an emptiness which only God can fill. We were created to know the Creator. He knows what makes us tick, our true desires, our needs, our failures. He knows all. Give him your life. He is worth it and you will never regret it. Jesus came to save sinners. If you see yourself as one and it is hard not to see it in these last days. Ask him to forgive you and come into your life to help you live for him and he will. Jesus said, "I have come that they might have life and have it more abundantly." Life here is 'Zoe', the God-kind of life, the highest and the best. Come to him for life, you will never find it anywhere else.
Remember as wonderful as sex is, it can never fully satisfy only God can.
