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 & Statements
Jesus’ response (God’s answer) –
We believe that Jesus is God. [John 1:1]
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.
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.
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.
Our Lord usually refers back to the Old Testament (it is
written, have you not read, do you know not the scriptures etc).
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.

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"
