An Honorable Marriage

It was reported the vice president Mike Pence took the unusual step of honoring his wife by sharing that he would never “dine with women alone.”

Chivalry is vilified by the progressive left.

Just in case you do not know what “chivalry” means, according to one source……”courteous behavior, especially that of a man toward women.”

In the case of the vice president, his behavior honored his wife.

There is no doubt in my mind that this was a carried over policy that he instituted himself so as to honor God that brought them together and to uphold, without question, his faithfulness to his wife.

On a different note, I’ve instituted a policy a long time ago when my wife and I started pastoring.

I never counsel women alone.

Laugh if you want. Call me what you want.

Most pastors will counsel women alone.

That’s their prerogative. There is nothing in the Scriptures that declare that you have to have this kind of policy. But there is nothing in the Scriptures that says that you can’t have this policy.

To each his own.

My point is not to draft up a bunch of Scriptures to justify either point.

My point is to point out that the world (satan’s kids) will do everything in their power to trip a marriage up. But the progressive broad road that leads to destruction agenda is also designed to ridicule anyone that honor their female wives.

I believe that the vice president knew this and established a clear boundary that he will not cross.

Marriage has been under attack since the Garden.

Yup, now the Bible.

satan divided Eve from Adam and it cost their marriage. Since then, every marriage is attacked after their’s been a probe to determine how weak or how strong their marriage is.

Mike Pence did what was frowned upon by progressive ideology.

Honor the Lord, honor His institution, and honor his wife.

The world wants you to dishonor the Lord, the institution of marriage, and the wife.

Why? To discredit the Scriptures. To bring dishonor and shame on the Lord and to attempt to bring many people into the bondage of sin. It’s demonic alternative to trap many people.

The revelation of marriage is found in the writings of Paul.

Ephesians 5:24-33.

The husband represents Christ and the wife represents the church.

Paul called it a “great mystery.”

Since the Garden, satan has been a terrorist on marriage.

Homosexual unions, bisexuality, bestiality, adultery, and fornication perverts the marriage institution.

When one male and one female unite in holy matrimony, and make a quality decision to honor their marriage, it reveals the kind of relationship that the Lord instituted and God is glorified.

But when we see the world instituting a substitute, it undermines the revelatory intent of God’s institution of marriage.

Just because two people fail in their marriage, it doesn’t mean that the institution of marriage is a failure and that demonically inspired alternatives are authorized.

satan always looked for every opportunity to replace anything of God, including God Himself. But we all know that anything that is created will never be greater than the Creator.

Mike Pence put up a firewall because he knows all too well the trappings of politics mixed with pleasure. The enemy already sent his “feminine agents” to probe the weaknesses of their marriage but they will find that the firewall is secure.

Even when a firewall is established, the enemy will continue to probe to attempt to gain access to destroy the marriage. Especially when the demonically inspired progressive agenda is out to pervert everything that it touches.

As long as the vice president is on watch and stays on his knees before the Lord, and keep his marriage strong, any attempts will be futile.

If married men would make the same pledge of this kind of policy, it will show that marriage can work if both the husband and wife stick together. As a team, they can withstand the traps and temptations of the wicked one. One can put a thousand to flight and two can put ten thousand to flight. A threefold cord is not easily broken. As long as they stay with Jesus, where there is two or three are gathered together, touching on anything, there, the Lord is in the middle or center of it all.

So when you see that “no weapon formed against us shall prosper” it’s because a man agrees to honor the Lord, his marriage, and his wife. He will do everything in his power to exercise “sexual discipline” in a sexually perverted world.

Now for other spiritually references, you could read, Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:4-5, Hebrews 13:4, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, Revelation 21:8, the entire chapter of Leviticus 18, Romans 1:18-32.

The Minister's Crucible is designed to inform the Body of Christ about the inner workings of the ministry. The word Crucible from Latin, is "crux" where we get the word "cross" from. It also means a "metal container" where metals and other substances are melted or are subjected to higher temperatures, put to the temperature test. The Lord Jesus said "If any man desires to follow after Me, let him deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me." Let's take up our cross and follow Him.
