The definition of marriage has been incredibly watered down in our culture. Many believe they don’t need a piece of paper. They can live together, and this is okay. Many young “Christians” believe this to be true. Some believe if you’re having sex and even having children, you’re married. So what exactly is marriage?
“But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” (Mark 10:6-9)
So is marriage sex? Is becoming “one flesh” marriage? No. “What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh” (1 Corinthians 6:16). Here we are told that a man who has sex with a harlot becomes one flesh with her. Does this mean they are married? No. Sex doesn’t define a marriage and neither will it keep it together. Some couples can no longer have sex as they grow older. Does this mean they aren’t married? No. Some newlyweds can’t have sex for a while due to physical problems. Does this mean they aren’t married? No.
The “one flesh” description of marriage, however, does show the sacredness of sex within marriage, and that the intention for sex is only in marriage. Becoming “one flesh” with a harlot shows the great destruction of sex outside of marriage. This is why we are commanded to FLEE fornication, and that fornication is a sin against one’s own body (1 Corinthians 6:18). We are commanded to keep the marriage undefiled (Hebrews 13:4) for many good reasons.
Is living together marriage? No. Many couples live together, but they aren’t married. They are fornicating. There wouldn’t be a unique word for sex outside of marriage (fornication) if there was no such thing. Sharing a home together isn’t marriage. It’s pretending to be married without the one vital ingredient.
What is this vital ingredient? Commitment; a vow; a promise, a covenant until death do you part. A man is commanded to leave and cleave to his wife. What does “cleave” mean? It means “to stick; to adhere; to hold.” Marriage is far more than just sex and living together. It’s a vow made to each other in sickness and in health, in good times and bad times, in riches and poverty, until death do you part. THIS is what will keep you together and defines a biblical marriage. It’s a sacred relationship between a man and his wife for life. It’s an example, a mystery, of Christ and His Church which is founded upon commitment and a covenant.
Lastly, remind yourself what the definition of love is in God’s Word. It’s patient and kind. It believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things, and it never fails (1 Corinthians 13). Marriages that last are defined by love and commitment. Let this be your marriage.
Love is patient, love is kind, it is not jealous; love does not brag, it is not arrogant. It does not act disgracefully, it does not seek its own benefit; it is not provoked, does not keep an account of a wrong suffered, it does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; it keeps every confidence, it believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
US Truckers Issue Devastating Warning To Biden On Unlawful Shot Mandate
An estimated 30,000 truckers that deliver goods and services between the US/Canada border have not yet submitted their vaccination paperwork. Beginning January 15, truckers will be required to show proof of vaccination upon entering Canada. The same mandate for truckers entering the United States from Canada goes into effect on January 22.
When the coronavirus pandemic began nearly two years ago, the Trump administration made land/border crossings essential. However, the Biden administration’s mandate issued by the Department of Homeland Security trumps the former president’s.
Mike Milliam, the President of Private Motor Truck Council of Canada, told Lynnwood Timesthat the mandate will add to the shortages we are already experiencing and will cause significant long-lasting damage.
“70 percent of the 700 billion in trade between Canada and the U.S. is moved by truck,” Milliam said. “This will have a dramatic effect on supplies and services reaching their destination and getting in the hands of those who need them. One needs to look no further than the recent U.K. fuel shortage, where the military had to be brought in to deliver fuel as a result of a lack of truck drivers. We are already seeing shortages, if these shortages reach critical levels on items such as fuel, food, blood medicine or medical supplies, we will see real, long-lasting damage.” https://beforeitsnews.com/u-s-politics/2022/01/us-truckers-issue-devastating-warning-to-biden-on-unlawful-shot-mandate-2587541.html —
Unvaccinated Canadian truckers will have to “meet requirements for pre-entry, arrival and day eight testing, as well as quarantine requirements,” as they can’t be denied entry into Canada. Unvaccinated or partially-vaccinated non-Canadian truckers will be turned away if they are unable to show proof of immunization or a valid medical contraindication to the COVID-19 vaccines.
Truckers across Canada are organizing a “Convoy to End Mandates”. On January 23rd, they will begin a “slow roll”, from as many border points as possible, to slow down major road transportation routes across the Country. Truckers, and all others, are invited to join the convoy, to send a message to the Government, that forced vaccinations will not be tolerated. As of January 15th, Trudeau has mandated that all truckers crossing the border must be vaccinated. Similar mandates are already causing problems in Health Care systems, air transportation, and other sectors. This latest action will create major supply problems for many products Canadians rely on. The time has come to show Ottawa, and the Provinces, that we are not going to allow Government to continue to slowly squeeze Canadians into giving up their God-given – and Constitutionally protected – Rights and Freedoms.

— comments- Short story really quick sorry : Was just at the gas station this morning here in North Dakota , a guy in front of me mid 50’s looked like he was drunk and was about to faint. I asked him if he was okay he said he was having a hard time breathing and i asked him if he was sick and he said no.. I don’t think so and I was like well do you need a doctor ? He said he was just at the doctor 3 days before and got the covid vaccine and said he has been having trouble breathing since. The attendant and me watched him walk back out to his truck he stood there holding the door and just collapsed . we called 911 and the ambulance picked him up. I don’t know if he died or have a follow up but it’s happening. It literally felt like the start of a zombie apocalypse movie .

FLORIDA AND JAPAN ARE NOW (somewhat) SAFE PLACES FOR HUMANS. IT IS UP TO EACH INDIVIDUAL TO MAKE SURE THE FREEDOM CONTINUES AND SPREADS.
Japan announces that public and private sectors can not discriminate against those who refuse the experimental mRNA gene therapy injections.
Japan is now labeling Covid “vaccines” to warn of dangerous and potentially deadly side effects such as myocarditis. In addition, the country is reaffirming its commitment to adverse event reporting requirements to ensure all possible side effects are documented.
These efforts from Japan’s health authority are in stark contrast to the deceptive measures taken by other countries to coerce citizens into taking the injection, downplaying side effects, and discouraging proper adverse event reporting.
Additionally, Japan is emphasizing informed consent and bodily autonomy. Until the coronavirus pandemic, the concept of “informed consent” was considered sacred to healthcare professionals in the West.
