Grains of sand He took in hand and molded into life
Blew His Breath and out of death came mortal man- and wife
“Sex is about this life, but it’s not what it’s about.” -Wisdom
Sex is not a dirty word or a dirty act- unless we choose to make it so. The reason sex is so good is because God only gives good gifts!
God didn’t only give us a duty to procreate, He made it beautiful and intimate and pleasurable; He sanctified it in covenant relationship between a man and a woman and called it good. He holds it in such high esteem He patterned marriage after covenant relationship with Him. If we’d simply stay within the guidelines of God-ordained relationship, we would ultimately become completely happy and satisfied.
Marriage is to be held in honor among all [that is, regarded as something of great value], and the marriage bed undefiled [by immorality or by any sexual sin]; for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.

God: Eat freely from any and all trees in the garden; I only require that you abstain from eating the fruit of one tree—the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Beware: the day you eat the fruit of this tree, you will certainly die.After God gives man this directive, He realizes something is missing.
It is not good for the man to be alone, so I will create a companion for him, a perfectly suited partner.
So out of the same ground the man was made from, the Eternal God sculpted every sort of animal and every kind of bird that flies up in the sky. Then He brought them to the man and gave him the authority to name each creature as he saw fit: whatever he decided to call it, that became its name. Thus the man chose names for domesticated animals, birds, and wild beasts. But none of these creatures was a right and proper partner for Adam.
So the Eternal God put him into a deep sleep, removed a rib from his side, and closed the flesh around the opening. He formed a woman from the rib taken out of the man and presented her to him.
Adam: At last, a suitable companion, a perfect partner.
Bone from my bones.
Flesh from my flesh.
I will call this one “woman” as an eternal reminder
that she was taken out of man.
Now this is the reason a man leaves his father and his mother, and is united with his wife; and the two become one flesh. In those days the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
To know God intended us to run around with our perfect mate, cavorting perfectly naked in a perfect climate in a perfect Garden that would have nourished and sustained forever…
I’ve always said I’d like the opportunity to take Adam & Eve behind the proverbial tool shed- and no, not for a threesome, you dirty minded freak! ; D
Be blessed, y’all- do what makes for His blessing. He can’t give lasting happiness outside of Himself- there is no such thing.
Jimmy and Karen know firsthand that no marriage is hopeless. The first few years of their own marriage were tumultuous and almost ended in divorce. Only by applying the principles that they now teach were they able to save their relationship. Today, after 40 years together, they understand that no matter how bleak a marriage may appear, every couple has a 100% chance of success in marriage. In fact, it can thrive!
“We’ve learned through personal experience that no matter how it may appear right now…no matter what kinds of challenges your marriage faces…no matter how high or thick the walls between you and your spouse may be…your relationship can be whole, fulfilling, exciting and strong,” Jimmy says. “And if it’s good now, it can get even better.”
Healing first- then the good life and the blessed marriage! Great Video here- Jimmy & Karen
