When does marriage begin between a man and a woman? PAGE 2 (Pg1, Pg3, Pg4)

The Forgotten Meaning?


Hold on to your seat belts as we open the Word in “The Truth of the Gospel Ministry” fashion.

(all scripture taken from the KJV)


Our approach is to take the liberty of asking our “Lord Jesus” to answer the questions himself; just as he did in the New Testament. We do apologize for standing in His place and trying our best to answer from his sacred lips. Our Majesty (Jesus) is above all that we are and can think.  


Examples from the Word (Bible) on how our Lord answers questions:


Questions & Statements

Jesus’ response (God’s answer) – We believe that Jesus is God. [John 1:1]

[Matt 19:3]

The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?



(Matt 19:4 [KJV])

And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female.


[Matt 22:23-28]

23 The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him, 24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. 25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother: 26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.3  27 And last of all the woman died also. 28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.

[Matt 22:29-33]

29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. 30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven. 31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, 32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living. 33 And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.

Page Summary:

Our Lord usually refers back to the Old Testament (it is written, have you not read, do you know not the scriptures etc).



[2Tim 3:16]

ALL scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (see Matthew 6:33 on this word“righteousness”).


You could say that Jesus wrote the book (via Holy Ghost inspiration in holy men of old - prophets). He is God, so why change his word? (for man’s convenience?). NO, He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. So what applies then applies NOW. Hard to swallow we know; even for the “World Church” can’t get it down. Continue on to see what we mean.

This article was written to share the truth of God’s Word to the church as it relates to when marriage between a man and a woman begins. When the church truly teaches, “it is written”, then we stand with them on the side of Truth. It is and has been a very controversial subject for the researcher/writer of these pages, but our Lord was not one to shun controversy. He was not one to seek the favor of men; for Him TRUTH came before life and for Truth he died. Are you prepared to die for the Truth?

The Greatest Love of all (John 3:16) 

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life"
