Law can be seen as rules and regulations or the acceptable code of conducts that govern the behaviours of individual or individuals in a particular organization, nation or country.


Marriage is God's original idea and has laws that guides its operation,or the legal union of a man and a woman join together through Holy Matrimony.


Nothing is been fought by the devil more than marriages. Things like fornication, adultery, rape, divorce, premature deaths, lesbianism,gay, same sex marriage, masturbation are all attacks on marriages and by extension God's kingdom on earth.


It's however imperative we know the laws that holds marriage together as planned by God so that we overcome the enemy, the devil and not fall to his traps. These Four laws shall be unfolded one by one.

1 Peter 5:8

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. 


I. THE LAW OF POSSESSION

Mathew 19:5

they two shall become one flesh...”

God designed married to remain for life and become one, unity, indivisible, inseparable love birds for life.


Ecclesiastes 9:9

Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun.


In this law of Possession,

The Hebrew word echad means one, unity, unison.

The two persons or couple are now one as such nothing should be more important than their relationship or union except God. Both are to love themselves above other relatives and relationships.

they are to become one, United, indivisible and insaparable ( Amos 3:3). It's when they are insaparable that they achieve what God intended for the union in Genesis 1:18


II. THE LAW OF PURITY

Ephesians 5:21

Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

Ephesians 5:25

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Ephesians 5:22

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

James 4:7

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Hebrews 13:4

Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.


In this Law of Purity,

The Hebrew word Hupotasso means to be subject to, be under obedience, to be under etc.

Husbands are to love their wives unconditional and wives are to be submissive to their husbands. Both are to be submissive to God by loving each other as commanded by God by avoiding immoralities, adultery, fornication, etc. God intends to use marriages to ushering in the kingdom of God on earth or His Colony by extension raising Godly seeds. 


Ill. THE LAW OF PRIORITY

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother...”

Hebrew word azab means leave,loosen, relinquish, depart from, end ones membership etc.

God designed marriage to operate as your number 1 priority, except for God. Every other things is secondary. Make it a priority. If this is not applied to your union, the union is heading for doom.

Priority in terms of Sacrifice, Time, Energy, Attitude and resources.

1 Timothy 5:8

But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.


IV. THE LAW OF PURSUIT

“…and shall cleave to his wife...”

Dabaq Hebrew word means cleave, cling to, faithful to, adhere to, Stick fast to etc. Pursue with your energy.

Ecclesiastes 9:9

Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity.......

Cleave to or cling to your spouse all the days of your lives as he/she is your portion and that's is a labour you must do all the days of your life.

Four Common Misconceptions about Love and Marriage

1. If I marry the right person, positive emotions happen naturally and effortlessly throughout marriage.

Emotional love is insecure.

Agape love (Gods love) is enduring and powerful. 


2. If my emotions change I must have married the wrong person.

Deception from the enemy.


3. Positive events, experience, and actions should fuel the relationship and our emotions long term.


4. If we have fallen out of love there is no way we can get it back.

Wrong...

Revelation 2:5 ESV

5. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. 


These laws holds marriage together and hence should be kept, without these laws anarchy and chaos is the order of the day leading to divorce. Divorce shall not be your portion.
